Heterosexuality is discriminatory. Thankfully the State is here to help.
I think this is the kind of thing that will push Orson Card to get out the pitchforks and torches. If I were a parent of someone in that school, I’d pull them out immediately. I’d be there the same or next day with my kid to clean out their locker.
My goodness, if people aren’t outraged by now, they haven’t been paying attention.
Tell me now, that I’ve been wrong in saying that the gay agenda (and SSM in particular) is to get teenagers to experiment with homosexual sex.
One’s first sexual experience has a tendency to have an imprinting effect. In a way which is more powerful than one’s first alcoholic drink. Was your first alcoholic drink a beer? Those people tend to then be beer drinkers. Was your first mixed drink a Manhattan? Those people tend to then prefer Manhattans.
A not insignificant portion of gay men had their first sexual experience as a child with an older male. Ask an experienced older psychologist or psychiatrist who has counseled gay men.
A not insignificant portion of paedopiles had their first sexual experience either AS a child, or WITH a child. Ask psychologists who’ve treated sex offenders who were Vietnam veterans about their patients whose first sexual exerience was with an underage prostitute in Vietnam.
FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, middle school kids aren’t mature enough to keep things under control when dealing with heterosexual displays of affection, and they are thus being encouraged to participate in homosexual displays of affection? The inmates are running the asylum!
I still don’t think the point is to get young persons to experiment. If they do, that’s a bonus, sure. But the real point is to subvert parental authority and show people where the whip hand is. It’s like political correctness. The goal is not to change what people think; in fact, political correctness is its most effective when it forces people to say things and act in ways that they know are lies.
“Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”
To add on Adam’s point, if political correctness is meant to humiliate us by forcing us to accept an obvious lie, this is an attempt to humiliate us by accepting that the kids don’t really belong to us, but to the Powers That Be. Or as Maury Povich might say, “You are NOT the father!”
Cuckoldry by the State. They live under our roof, but they aren’t really ours.
Planning to homeschool, by the way.
Adam, I think you don’t see the sinister ulterior motives of the “they” in question.
The societal downhill slide is driven by satan. The purpose of the downhill slide is to make people miserable and thwart the purposes of God. Destruction of the family *and* the individual is part and parcel of it all. Unchastity is a major part, if not *the* major part of satan’s plan of making people miserable.
Satan already has gotten our society to tolerate and promote pre-marital sex, extra-marital sex, and teen sex. What’s his next step? He’s already got boys having sex with girls before graduating high school. What’s worse than that, in the sexual realm? Earlier and earlier sex? Yup, this story was about middle school. (And 25% of girls in the US are raped by the time they turn 18, so satan’s well on his way to promoting earlier and earlier sex.)
So what’s worse than even-earlier-sex? I’d venture that teens having homosexual sex is the next step. And the linked story is the evidence. Glee (the tv show) is also evidence. Is Glee art imitating life, or life imitating art? Well, both are true. Kids imitate what they see on TV and on the internet. Role models in real life and in dramatic entertainment are doing it, so in the minds of “outer-directed people” and in the minds of children/teens whose parents have abandoned them to being raised by TV, it can’t be wrong.
So instead of “just” worrying that teen boys are going to hit on your teen daughter, (and girls hitting on your teen boy, which now happens reglarly) you now have to worry about girls hitting on your teen daughter, and boys hitting on your teen son.
If little Johnny asking little Susie out on a date, and for a kiss goodnight is a normal part of teen life (starting at about 13 for non-mormons), then it would be “DISCRIMINATION” “BIGOTRY” and “HOMOPHOBIA” to say that little Sammy can’t ask little Johnny for a date and a kiss goodnight.
Parents are going to worry even more about their children’s friends. Is it okay for your son to become friends with another teen boy who has self identified as gay, if they were not already friends before the other boy self-identified? What is the purpose of the friendship? What if your son is at the age where he hasn’t “discovered girls” yet? Is the openly gay friend going to have any influence on your son’s developing sexual identity or orientation? Friendship is the perfect cover for grooming for seduction, whether heterosexual or homosexual.
Gay kids have raging hormones as well as straight kids. And this thing of societal acceptance of homosexuality, gay teen role models, teen PDA, gay teen PDA, etc., gives satan a lot more players and combinations to work with. Children can now be targeted from more directions. And the bisexual teens will have even more targets available to them.
“You think homosexuality can “only” be inborn? Only hetero or homo? Get with the times, man. You can do whatever you want, with whoever is willing. Double your chances of getting lucky.”
No, SSM is not going to destroy *your* marriage. But it will destroy your *children’s*.
Apparently the boys were counseled to always have a condom in their pocket and about how to identify a slut.
Scary to think that we really should have included something in the Bill of Rights that parents have rights to their children. But you had to know the day was coming. Was it Oakes who had the talk about the garden and snakes and how evil would not always be avoidable?
My only real question is, how long can this last? I give us no more than 10-15 years. 20 at the most.
Adam, if you think this ends at merely a state takeover of parently authority, or some kind of political correctness, google “fistgate”.
I’m tellin’ ya, it’s about making more gays.
For the small number of homosexuals to have this much impact is improbable on the order of conspiracy theories about Jews running the world. Sure, homosexuals want more homosexuals, but you have to ask what the much larger body of heterosexuals moving these things forward is hoping for.
I think we need to distinguish between conscious and unconscious (for lack of a better term) conspiracies.
Even if Books is right, is isn’t because they (as a whole) are sitting down and planning this way. That would be a conscious action/conspiracy.
But it is entirely to be expected, that they will do many of these same actions unconsciously because of insecurity, lust, and the fact they just like it. It happens because of culture, not top-down directives, which in my mind, makes it much more worrisome.
The comment about political correctness being more effective the less it makes sense hits a nerve.
His Majesty had me read a book on the German concentration camps once that made precisely the same point. I am talking now about the “conventional” concentration camps, not the extermination camps, which came later and were engineered as mass slaughterhouses. The “conventional” concentration camps were meant to break the inmates, to humiliate them, and thus were deliberately set up to make as little sense as possible. For example, the outright criminals and the homosexuals among the inmates were picked out and put in minor positions of authority over the other inmates. Not that the criminals and gays were not themselves brutally mistreated, but they were encouraged to brutally mistreat the other inmates in turn, and most happily obliged. It was a deliberate overturning of the moral order.
John M, the larger body of heterosexuals who see this all as mere political correcness or benevolent socialism are the “useful idiots”.
John M, think on the history of communism in the Soviet Union, going back as far as Bolshevism, and the early days of Lenin and Trotsky. Only the inner circle elite really knew what the goals and ultimate destination was. Maybe some of the aparatchiks knew too, but the vast majority of the people who were the grass roots people who brought about the implementation of communism were the useful idiots.
Remember that population control has been another tool of satan and the hard left. Over-population has been one of their themes since the 1970′s. For examle, Ted Turner is on record (back in the late 80′s or early 90′s) as having lobbied for a _reduction_ in world population. Not a cap on growth, not a leveling out, but an actual _reduction_.
In addition to abortion, delayed marriage, no marriage, reduced family size, etc., one of the mechanisms of that reduction would be to get as many children as possible to be homosexual. It’s pretty hard to convert someone to homosexuality after they have already formed their sexual identity and reached adulthood. But steering or grooming can be done while the child is still young enough.
Sexual immorality, promoted through media and entertainment, was also part and parcel of communism’s plan to destroy the west.
FWIW: The Poughkeepsie Journal’s story from April 17 indicates that the role-play was done in the context of teaching students to reject unwanted sexual advances.
Still a bone-headed move, if true; but I’m not sure it would constitute “recruiting”.
JimD: Baby steps, incrementalism, boiling the frog slowly.
Plus, how about teaching students not to _make_ any sexual advances, hetero/homo, wanted/unwanted, and that _any_ sexual advance is inappropriate for all minors, especially at school, and especially those younger than the age of consent?
in the Gulag Archipelago Sozhenitsyn says the Soviets did the same thing.
If you bore down deep enough, the concept is the same as the exercise of stamping on the cross you get in That Hideous Strength and Florida Atlantic University.
It occurs to me that a similar practice was common in the Imperial Japanese Army. Recruits would be lined up and slapped, then asked why they had been slapped. Various explanations were offered, each rewarded with a second slap.
Finally, one of the recruits would say “I don’t know.” And the sergeant would say, “That’s right. You must stop looking for explanations and do what your superiors order you to do without question.”
I have never thought that Satan was very original.
Two more data points: the Army does something similar in basic training. You get punished regardless at first. Only later in training do you get rational expectations.
