Slomosexuality

Andrew Walker here describes the efforts of the new homo-jihadis to outlaw religious liberty on Christian colleges. I use the verb “outlaw,” but Walker makes it plain that this ultimate goal is not the immediate move. The current plan is simply to expose those colleges that have taken a legal exemption from the sexual pandemonium so that they may be subjected to the full weight of public . . . what’s the word I want here? . . . obloquy, that’s it.

argle-bargle
Actual words for actual things.

And World magazine reports that a Catholic school in Massachusetts will not be permitted to beg off from hiring homosexuals in the future. A judge has handed down some learned argle bargle, and a private religious school now has to have an official from the government tell them what the boundaries of their conscience may be. Now — full disclosure here — I have been reported on enough by World to make me a little tentative, but this story seems legit.

Walker’s report makes plain what has been evident to insightful observers for some time now. This sexual revolution we are observing fully intends to have two phases. The first is the orgiastic phase, where the revolutionaries fight for their right to have orgasms wherever and however they please. The second phase will come when they seek to enact Diderot’s sentiment, and strangle the last king with the entrails of the last priest. In other words, the two phases can be summed up by lust and hatred.

In short, they want what they want and intend to take it, and they hate what we want and intend to take it away. More about this in a moment.

In the meantime, in order to prepare for the onslaught of the sexual riot of unbelief . . .

Pop evangelicals are making ecclesiastical uptown funk videos, a practice I deem to be whiter than snowballs.

Pop evangelicals are having people get tattoos at church on stage during the sermon, which is lamer than the cripple at the Beautiful Gate around 2:45 pm, right before Peter’s arrival (Acts 3:1-5). Only Peter came to the Beautiful Gate and healed the guy. He hasn’t showed up here yet.

Pop evangelicals are now officially grappling with women’s ordination, which is gayer than an NPR tote bag full of rainbows.

In case you hadn’t noticed, these evangelicals grapple with things right before they wrestle with them, which is right before they lose to them. The only thing contempo-evangelicals are willing to really do battle with is breast cancer, and then only during the designated week for it. As the prophet Elijah once put it, say it with ribbons.

“Lord, Lord, why did You let them take away our religious liberty?”

If I had to guess, the answer will be that from the heavenly perspective it didn’t look like we were using it. Aping whatever the cool kids are doing is not a religion. Well, all right. To be strictly accurate, it can be considered a religion — a religion of eighth graders.

So let us leave pop evangelicalism to their own irrelevant devices. Nothing is more irrelevant than the lust for relevance. As Lewis put it, whatever is not eternal is eternally out of date.

I said the revolution has two phases. The two phases have three steps. First, create a sexual Bedlam and make everybody live in it. Second, give traditional believers day passes so that they go be somewhere normal from time to time. Third, revoke all day passes.

Last thing. Why call this slomosexuality? What is slow about it? We are living in a time when many things are happening, apparently quite suddenly. But all of this is the result of Gramsci’s “long march through the institutions.” The various assumptions that go into the lunacies that are being sprung on us today, almost on a daily basis, are assumptions that have been carefully cultivated for decades — well, actually for centuries. There have been two aspects of it.

First, there has been careful cultivation of the unbelieving mind, such that some people can now be persuaded that if personal identity is a social construct, then if a man wants to self-identify as a sea lion off the Oregon coast, it must be a hard and bitter bigotry for anyone to say that he can’t fulfill his dreams. For mark it well. When these things come up, and some naif says, “But he isn’t a sea lion,” and the gent in question is lying on the beach in his specially-manufactured trunks, with a hurt look on his face, the person who will get in trouble is the person who said the hurtful thing, not the person doing the stupid thing. You doubt what I say?

You think I take my calling as a satirist too intently, too seriously? You think I am doing it up a little brown? Too many eggs in the pudding? I mean, seriously, sea lions? Look. Bruce Jenner is no more a girl than Schwartz is a sea lion. How are you going to prove Schwartz wrong? Check his DNA? Great. Can we have a look at Bruce’s DNA while we are at it? The only reason this secularist sexualist worldview has any traction whatever is that twenty pound club that you wield so vigorously.

The second regime of cultivation was more important though. This was the preparation that persuaded the believing mind to go along with all the foolishness. Some believers have been doctrinally hobbled. They have refused to step into a prophetic role because this world is not their home. Some have refused because they go to a church with music that gives them the feelies all over — as though churches were somehow supposed to be pilot-project centers for Huxley’s Brave New World. Some have retreated to seminaries in order to manufacture R2K workarounds, a more sophisticated intellectual justification for disengagement than the older dispensational forms were. Twice as many graduate degrees, but every bit as impotent!

But the main reason is that twenty pound club. Courage does pay strong dividends down the road, but cowardice always pays off now.

You are too hard on NPR. They give a nod to hetero-normative behaviors at least 10% of the time. Most likely so they can’t be accused of being obsessed with any-other-normative alternative.

Not hard enough on NPR, I’d say. Maybe it is only coincidental, but seems like 80% of NPR subject matter is all controversial .. from Christian points of view. There seems no end to first-person stories about Trans-gender and/or Homosexual persons; their marriages; their attempts to adopt children, and etc, etc, on and on ad nauseum. Literally, ad nauseum.

Furthermore the endgame has to physically force those who say no to not only agree but comply. Look at what the men of Sodom tried to do. That is what the men and women who are homojihadis will try. Rape the opponents in the streets it sounds graphic and melodramatic to say such things, but I don’t see these people stopping short of this. Will be an interesting clash with Islam

That is frightening. But you bring up a good point. Some of the activites of the Sodomites seemed very strange the first couple of times I read those passages.

The striking thing is that they continued to grope around for fresh victims even after they were struck blind. That level of depravity is hard to grasp. But it makes it easier to understand why God did not spare the city.

This is, indeed, a further reminder that culture is downstream from power.

Katecho

In this case, power is not what is making the culture acquiesce to the homosexual agenda against its wishes. The culture already wants libertine sexuality. This was expressed even back in the 20’s and 60s, before power was ready to officially approve it. We live in a system were power turns over, at intervals, as a representation of the culture. I believe that is what we are seeing.

Russian baptists in my neck of the woods (Denver) are now for the very first time discussing from the pulpit the need to consider pulling their kids out of public schools to protect from Slomosexualism.

So some who’ve flinched at that club do have their limits of tolerance.

I can’t help but suspect that a Catholic school in Massachusetts would welcome such a decree. It’s cost them a lot of money to keep this kind of thing undercover.

Theory: As with the advent of Hitler to run amok with the evils of Academia in the 1920’s and 30’s (eugenics, antisemitism,etc), God is allowing the wicked to stomp on the accelerator at the moment so that they might attain a more spectacular plunge off the cliff’s edge.

Also to give us a chance to point out what is increasingly obvious and so pull as many passengers from the car as we can, to His glory.

A better parallel would be the rampant sexual wickedness of the Weimar Republic. (in particular, look up Magnus Hirschfeld and Institut für Sexualwissenschaft. See also http://28sherman.blogspot.com/2014/09/weimerica.html )

I followed this case and read the ruling carefully. I think that Catholic schools (and others with similar views) have to show some common sense in not exposing themselves to unwelcome lawsuits. The school could have got round the issue altogether by hiring only Catholics in good standing with the church. But if Catholic schools hire non-Catholics because they want access to the best coaches, physics teachers, or whatever, they have a problem when they insist that these teachers live by Catholic standards. The other issue is that this individual was hired to be head of food services. He had… Read more »

And I think Pepperdine is toast at the trial level. They will also lose in the 9th Circuit. SCOTUS will have some real work to do in defining how a new, judicially-created right can be squared with the Free Exercise rights explicitly recognised by the constitution.

Jill Smith
Member

I agree that this is on its way to the Supremes. Pepperdine has the option of not taking federal money. They have had a very confused response to LGBT issues: offering a scholarship to students who show “a commitment to the LGBT community” whatever that means, authorizing a gay-straight alliance then rescinding that authorization, and plenty of other missteps. But I do think the judge’s ruling, if upheld on appeal, is a real game changer.

Mrs. Bean,

Respectfully, I do not think that they have a “very confused response”. They like mammon, and have tried to thread the eye of the needle. When words and actions diverge, believe the actions.

Mrs. Bean,

I think that ” The school could have got round the issue altogether by hiring only…” is correct at more than first impression. The failure of the church-at-large to grasp the corporate structure has created multiple problems at many levels.

“You think I take my calling as a satirist too intently, too seriously?”

Wouldn’t that be lovely? I happen to live in the 9th circuit of hell and Sea Lion boy is real. So are the churches now performing gay marriages. So are the churches that decided to remove all references to Christ Himself, least they offend someone. What people fail to understand is that when Jesus Christ in His perfection is deemed too offensive, it doesn’t bode well for the rest of us.

1 Corinthians 1
22 Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles,24 but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.

That the world is fallen, as the Church repeats, is supposed to be offensive, stinging salt.
Salt in the wound does clean and heal. (ouch!)

Corey, does the PCUSA oppose adultery?

PerfectHold
Guest

I’m not Corey but I’m pretty sure he’d say Yes — and for good reason.
Adultery is unloving and dishonest at heart.
Based on the Truth that it is unloving and is not what God wants or designed.
And we know that because we think it and feel it and besides, the Bible corroborates, which is nice.

Michael Keith Blankenship
Guest
Michael Keith Blankenship

I don’t know about this. If the homosexuality texts are to be disregarded, it seems like the adultery ones should be too.

Also, are not the concept of “love your neighbour” and hospitality pretty much rooted in a particular cultural context, i.e a pastoral society functioning in an arid to semi-arid climate?

PerfectHold
Guest
PerfectHold

Corey — you might want to step in here.
Homo texts, he might say, are not to be disregarded, just taken in context.
The thing to regard, he’d say, is what God is saying to us, now, here.
But then, you might be self-deceived about what God is saying.
What are you gonna do?!

Jill Smith

But then the adultery texts have to be taken in context as well. We could argue that adultery back then was far worse because marriage was a woman’s only source of security and that there were no cures for STDs. We could argue that we now have a greater understanding of human sexuality and the need for sexual variety. And that theft is not really that big a deal because it’s not like I stole the one goat you were relying on for milk.

That, and the author may have been self-deceived when he wrote those things down.

You just have to do the best with the your cranium’s capacity and ability to connect to the Truth, assuming she’s out there … or maybe in here.

Don’t know what either Corey or the PCUSA would say, but the two aren’t comparable. Adultery usually involves lies and deception; open gay relationships do not. Adultery diverts marital resources away from one’s spouse and children; gay relationships do not. Adultery is a breach of trust; gay relationships are not. In other words, the sexual aspect of adultery is almost secondary to the fact that it it involves dishonesty and deprives spouses and children of the full attention and resources they are entitled to. I suppose if we lived in a society in which there was no expectation of marital… Read more »

I’m sure if someone wants to bother they can pose all sorts of hypothetical mitigations for the practical consequences of adultery. In fact, from your starting point K2, adultery ought to be a moot issue anyway. Since, speaking of “openly”, you openly reject the authority of the Christian Bible I care less about your disagreement with scripture than I do about that of Corey, a professing Christian, or the PCUSA, a professedly Christian denomination. I wish they would stop playing games and be as open in their unbelief as you are. Of course what I wish far more is that… Read more »

I wouldn’t say it’s a moot issue since my starting point is that actions have consequences, and the consequences that accompany adultery are usually pretty unpleasant, both for the participants and often for innocent bystanders as well. But what I do reject out of hand is the idea that there are only two choices: Biblical literalism, or anything goes. In point of fact, every issue — homosexuality, divorce, adultery, polygamy — can be evaluated on its own merits; they don’t come as a package deal It is possible to conclude that the social consequences of one justify treating it differently… Read more »

Let me clarify. From your starting point, what Christianity, or any other religion, or any other claim about transcendent meaning and value, says about adultery ought to be moot. From your starting point they are all exercises in make believe anyway. Again, I don’t care as much if you reject what scripture says about homosexuality as I do when it is someone inside the church.

A big part of this problem is that most of today’s new pastors (and pastorettes, if the church is really hip) are coming directly from “youth ministry” where all manner of irreverent juvenility passes for “fellowship” and “doing life together.” When these youth pastors get into the adult pulpit on Sunday morning they invariably continue with the same adolescent attention-getting ploys and clowning around that they perfected while trying to… Read more »

One of the most horrifying experiences I have had in church was when a nun dressed up in ballet clothes did a liturgical dance around the altar to convey the inner meaning of the Our Father. As someone who is prone to fits of the giggles during solemn moments, I thought I would explode with the effort to control myself.
