Sodom Redux

Sodomby Glenn Fairman5/21/16
Years ago while reading the story of Lot and the judgment of Sodom, I was perplexed that strident homosexuality could have such strong currency in the biblical Middle East — which I understood to be a rough and tumble place. But now i know intimately that the desperately wicked human heart desires pleasures on its own terms, and having come uncoupled from the fixed proclivities of design and nature, the arc of its insatiability is aroused and fixated on the forbidden to the extent that it will conduct war with anything decent or lovely.

Having muddled the distinction between the sacred and the profane, how resolutely wickedness seeks to justify itself in cities which take on the character of hellish cauldrons. How quickly it all slides downhill as humanity, striving against all natural forms, rips off its hypocritical mask and bellows forth its true maniacal aim: a take no prisoners war against the sons and daughters of the Most High. A demonic imagination that prefers the outer darkness to the bending of the knee will not be moved or redeemed, and destruction, whether through calamity or the proxy of foreign arms, becomes as inexorable as the rising sun. And finally, almost as if on cue, the dark judgment takes shape as the wretched embrace their own destruction with self-righteousness dripping from blackened lips.

    God was persuaded by Abraham to save Sodom and Gomorrah if 10 righteous men could be found in them. They couldn’t, and the cities burned. One wonders how many righteous men could be found in Versailles-on-the-Potomac today, or in Babylon-on-the-Hudson, or Babylon-on-the-Bay.

    Funny you should mention it. While making my coffee this morning, the thought America is on the way to morphing into the modern Sodom and Gomorrah popped into my mind. We are getting close.

    There have always been perverts upon this earth. But what is happening in the West, is something unique. The institutions which control and form society have been corrupted and are almost completely controlled by the nihilistic cabal which is the queer lobby. Make no mistake, this is about more than sex. It is about truth and falsehood. It is about perverting the course of nature and in the end a strangely narcissistic, nihilistic wish for self-destruction. They want to take us all down with them.

    I wonder how our destruction will come about?

    This way?

      I could imagine the end (no pun intended….maybe) coming like this, Mr. Kung. Please don’t click on this link and then complain to me about being offended. This is highly x-rated content: The end of the world, liberal style. And yet, really, perhaps you should in order to “celebrate diversity.”

      Ahh…but if it’s “love,” it can’t be wrong. While writing my review of “Spotlight” I was going to say something like: I’m not sure what all the fuss is about? Surely pedophilia is just another kind of love. And love is never wrong.

      That’s what your useful idiots will be telling us tomorrow. And if not tomorrow, maybe in a couple of years.

      • Timothy Lane says:

        Currently, liberals switch between condemning pedophilia (when it’s linked to people they dislike, such as Catholic cleric or scoutmasters) and approving it. In the long run, I think approval will be their consistent approach. This is why I’d like to see the Wicked Witch of the West challenged.

      • Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

        I thought of looking for something like this for my “end of the world” causes, but couldn’t take it. Still can’t.

        This demonstrates one of my points about how technology spreads and helps the promotion of perversion and immorality. In the early 1990’s, I warned people that the porno industry would profit from the internet more than any other industry. I don’t think I have been proved wrong.

        Ain’t the www great?

      I’m not sure about the cabal lobby. Did the ancient Greeks and Romans need a gay lobby? According to the literature of those times it seemed to be widely accepted.

      • Timothy Lane says:

        Homosexuality (or more precisely bisexuality) was widespread in Greek culture, probably at least partly because of the tendency to become overpopulated (which also led to creating colonies all over the Mediterranean and Black Seas). The Romans were different, though some of their emperors were either homosexual or bisexual (and naturally willing to be fairly open about it, since no one could do anything about it).

        Note, by the way, that the Greeks only had heterosexual marriage as a custom. Their homosexual behavior tended to be pederastic, as far as I can tell.

      • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

        One wonders in those times, Oldguy, if because of the very weak status of women that men would generally not want to lower themselves to have relationships with women. With men it was more of an equal-status thing. Maybe. Just trying to understand it. Or maybe most women were just ugly back then. They wished they all could be California girls.

        In today’s world, I’ve often quipped that homosexuality is the only living and active hedge against feminism. Men have been so marginalized by women, why would they want to come further under their power? Indeed, the facts of the high rate of non-marriage speak to this. Men are marrying later if they are getting married at all. If something does go wrong in a marriage, men know that the courts are throughly stacked against them. And with the sexualization of women via feminism, men are in the situation of “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?”

        If an aspect of homosexuality is purely culture (and I think at least some small percentage is), then take that, Gloria Steinem. And that’s where the bitter irony comes in. The feminists would like nothing better than for all men to become marginalized and weakened as homosexuals. True masculinity is the enemy of feminism.

        Call me crazy if you will. But remember the crazy context of all this. We’re told by the Left that people are just born gay. And yet we’re then told out of the other side of their mouths that people can choose whichever of the 56 flavors of gender suit them. Any narrative I or someone else wishes to forward is just as valid as the Pink Mafia stuff….maybe more so because at least we put some clear logic behind our premises.

    Isn’t it amazing how a man can find himself alone
    Call into the darkness for an answer that’s he’s never known
    Isn’t it amazing how God can take a broken man
    Let him find a fortune let him ruin it with his own two hands

    First verse of Difference Maker by Needtobreathe

    Destruction comes from the weight of our actions. The farther we as a society get away from God (truth), the more our actions tear our civil society apart. How close we are to our destruction we can’t tell, but there can be no doubt that we’re well down the path.

  4. Tom Riehl Tom Riehl says:

    Just back in town… The entire current issue of gender confusion, bathroom choice, and moral acceptance of vice is merely a tool of the left. They don’t give one damn about LGBT people in particular but rather how they are of use to themselves, they who desire power over others. The fact that this latest tool of theirs is egregiously fantastic and unreal shows that they are at the bottom of their tool chest. This is not about morality, but rather raw power. Reality and facts will out.

    • Timothy Lane says:

      I think what counts for them is breaking those who advocate traditional morality. Tihs is why compromise is unacceptable. Traditionalists must be made to bow to Big Brother. “Filioque! Filioque!” And as you say, power is the point.
