David French has an interesting article: Make Sex Crimes Criminal Again.
I think what we can say for sure is that central to the liberal utopian project is sex without consequences. Sex, anytime, anywhere, with anyone. The homosexual agenda is a must-have as a vital plank in this platform. Those committed to it cannot back down.
I was shocked and a bit alarmed one time when debating online with a friend. He was totally emotionally invested in the idea that Margaret Mead had proved that sex is open and guilt-free in its natural state. Never mind that I think it has been shown beyond much doubt that the natives in Samoa were telling her what she wanted to hear. They actually had all kinds of taboos about sex.
This liberal anthropologist wanted to find a sexual utopia. But even giving her the benefit of the doubt that a small community somewhere might just conform to liberal-style sexual utopian practices, you don’t need to be a trained anthropologist to see in the wider world that it’s not the Church’s fault, it’s not white people’s fault, and it’s not capitalism’s fault that people get jealous and squirrelly about sex.
Central to defining liberal/conservative isn’t tolerance, per se, for various sexual practices. I’m a live-and-let-live kind of guy. The more elemental difference is if one believes that sex is always good, natural, wholesome, therapeutic, and liberating — and if it isn’t, that’s the fault of religion, of having one’s urges shamed or “repressed," etc.
I was truly shocked that a college-educate man believed this. And many do. Few discuss this basic component of liberalism. But a huge number in our culture believe this (it actually helps if they go to college), just like some believe that sex is always inherently sinful and dirty (although these days you could probably count such people on one hand).
This is one very big reason that those who are “tolerant” of gays have zero interest in what it really means to practice the homosexual lifestyle as typically lived today. It must remain a protected species or the entire project won't fly.
Hey, if a reverend wants to burn a rainbow flag, he should receive as much respect, accolades, and hands-off awe as do the NFL kneelers or those who burn the American flag. This guy was doing exactly what Nike says is high ethics: He’s believing in something.
