Sexual totalitarianism vs. Christianity in America
By Sylvia Thompson

A reader of one of my articles expressed the view that if we could only rid the world of the killing of the unborn (abortion), much of the surrounding evil would fall. He thinks that the devastating consequences of the homosexual agenda and other agendas like it would be eliminated, as a result of the cleansing effect the removal of abortion would have on the world. I agree fully with that reader's stance toward abortion, but the legal push to force an acceptance of sexual perversion upon an unreceptive nation is somewhat different from permitting killing of the unborn. Abortion laws do not say that one must kill the unborn, only that you can, legally.

Abortion is an act for which many, many women feel crushing guilt after experiencing it. Evil elements play a crucial role in many of the decisions to kill one's own. But there is no fiercely organized push to force abortion upon women. The law simply allows the act. The woman (or a girl's guardians) makes the decision. Thankfully, godly elements are in play that assist women to choose other options besides abortion. But abortion affects others uninvolved with the act only indirectly. It weakens our humanity.

Militant homosexual activism, as expressed by LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered) groups, on the other hand, requires that laws force an acceptance of their behavior upon other people. They have control of the leftist influences on America's judiciary, and have made large inroads into infringing upon all Americans' freedoms, particularly their Christian faith. This is a direct infringement upon the rights of everybody who opposes sexual aberrance because God requires that we oppose it.

The October 2013 issue of Whistleblower magazine (a WND.com publication) gives a stellar review of the destructive consequences of a culture's embrace of what God abhors. The issue is titled "The New Sexual Revolution: How the 'Gay Rights' Movement has Become a Trojan Horse for Totalitarianism."

David Kupelian, editor of the magazine, details how psychiatrists are bullied by LGBT forces into normalizing sexual derangement. He also presents a masterful review of the war on fathers, masculinity, and manhood, perpetrated by the destructive movements of sexual, homosexual, and women's liberation. Each of these movements have done much to deny freedom to all who oppose them.

Peter LaBarbera, founder and president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) presents account after account of American Christians being persecuted and prosecuted as a result of their biblical stance toward homosexuality and other aberrant sexual behaviors. The article is titled "'Gay' Power vs. Religious Liberty," and it makes clear that a capitulation to the homosexual activist movement means the evisceration of a Christian's freedom to exist in this country.

Stephen Baskerville, professor of government at Patrick Henry College, presents an in-depth critique of the new ideologies of sex, and characterizes them as a "new form of tyranny." He postulates that with the fall of European communism, what filled the ideological void was first, Islamism and second, the soft ideologies, such as racial nationalism, multiculturalism, and environmentalism. Both Islamism and the soft ideologies have roots in the socialist and fascist movements that preceded them.

Professor Baskerville concludes that the most critical battleground is now the family, and of the soft ideologies, the most dangerous and elusive is that one encompassing the matrix of issues involving the family, children and sexuality. It is sexual radicalism. Over the last several decades, an agenda of sexual radicalism has exercised a growing influence over public life in the Western world. This influence bodes ill for the whole of society, particularly children and families. Sexual license is rapidly destroying true freedom.

These authors and others in this issue of Whistleblower magazine present a sobering review of what is happening in America. It is well-worth a conservative's time to check it out.

For the Christian, opposition to sexual tyranny (primarily driven by homosexual activism), must be based upon one simple fact – refusal to oppose it means the criminalization of Judeo-Christianity in American, and eventually, the world. That eventuality is worth fighting. And all Christians should oppose sexual tyranny, even if professed Christian leaders cower in the shadows out of fear of being deemed "judgmental." Or they take to the world stage and proclaim that homosexuality should not be a big deal for the church. Na´ve at best, and dangerous at worse.

Bear in mind, too, that the outlawing of Christianity in America, or anywhere else in the world, has no bearing on the survival of the faith. Christianity is God's agenda, and no matter how many individual Christians are eliminated, it will stand. Rest assured of that fact.
