Sexuality Slippery Slope

By Douglas V. Gibbs, AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

Slippery Slope.  Once you begin down it, the devastating consequences multiply quickly.

In a society based on virtuous values and an understood moral code, a man and a woman gets married, and they have children.  The kids call their parents father and mother, or mom and dad.  The parents teach the children their values, and the kids carry out what they learned when they become adults, and the cycle continues and continues as long as the society wishes to remain within those virtuous boundaries.

Along the way there are always exceptions.  Some parents are unable to have children, so they adopt, or remain childless.  Some men or women decide not to marry for a variety of reasons, be it career, or a desire to keep their lives completely to themselves, or a myriad of other possibilities.  The exceptions may be outside the norm, and represent a small minority of the population, but nobody really worries about them.

An even smaller percentage of the population in a virtuous society are those who choose to live outside the moral norm.  Their sexual behavior is considered bizarre, or perverted, so they remain in the shadows.  In a free society those who represent the majority and practice a moral standard do not necessarily demand that the sexual deviants change their behavior.  They just kind of put up with them, and perhaps even pretend they don't exist.  The sexual deviants practice their immorality in the dark corners, in the shadows, and nobody gets hurt..

In whatever society we are discussing, be it Rome, Greece, France, or modern-day America, eventually the minority decides that they ought to demand a legally driven normalization of their behavior.  Unlike their counterparts who have been the moral majority for however long, to justify their behavior the sexual deviants us the law to force their opposition into compliance, because in many ways, it is not as much about their behavior as it is to silence and eliminate anyone who dares to speak out against it.

The problem is that in a caring society, we wish to accommodate our fellow citizens as much as we can.  After all, we've always lived by the Golden Rule.  We decide to be fair, and try to treat these folks as we would want to be treated if we were in their shoes.  After all, we are a free and fair society.

Give an inch, and they will take a mile.

Homosexuality's rise in a society leads to them making demands, and to be fair, some of those things are granted.  Then, they want more, and more, and to not seem like we are hypocrites, we give more and more.  After all, it is a free society.

And the slide down the slippery slope begins.

Same-sex marriage, forced upon society through militant tactics attacking businesses homosexuals knew would be offended by their advances, and by using the liberal left biased courts, and a President who thinks he can mandate things by a royal edict, is now in place.  As a result, words are losing their meaning.  Marriage has been redefined by governmental mandate, and the end of marriage as an institution by God is on the horizon.

Gay marriage has nothing to do with homosexuality, or the desire to seek equality.  When I was a kid I grew up around the homosexual community because of the activities of my father.  Back then homosexuals were not talking about marriage, they were mocking it.  Homosexuality is not a monogamous behavior.

They also weren't talking about being born that way, either.  They knew they had a choice not to participate, but like any slippery slope, they were so far inside the homosexual community it just seemed ridiculous to stop the decadent fun.

Then, political expediency appeared.  Demanding a redefinition of marriage seemed to be a great way to attack the Christian foundation of this country.  Seeking gay marriage through a path labeling homosexuality as a civil right is a purposeful deception, because the truth is, the real purpose of seeking gay marriage is to target, destroy, and eliminate religion from society. . . especially the Christians.  "How dare those Christians think they are righteous. . . Let's destroy them."

In the process, the very foundational blocks that hold together our social institutions are at risk.  The slippery slope will, in the end, destroy our culture and successful society as we know it, and remold it into something else. . . a dark world where anything goes.

Other destroyers of society along the slippery slope are next.  The envelope never stops being pushed.  As far as they are concerned, there is no edge for it to fall over.  Next is polygamy, bestiality (bestiality brothels, in fact, are all the rage in Germany - oh, and don't forget that right here in the United States the courts in New York recognized Tommy the chimpanzee as a legal person, with a right to liberty, which would mean the animal would have a right to marry a human. . . right? - and in Canada a judge has ruled that sexual activity with an animal is fine as long as there is no penetration), pedophilia (In Britain a liberal leftist has proclaimed that "We can't prove sex with children does them harm"), incest (an Australian judge has determined incest is okay because we have abortion), and then sex with machines (well, that already happens. . . I mean robot sex).  No rules.  No morality.  Freedom, in the minds of these folks, is "do what you want, when you want, because you want to."  Anybody daring to say, "hey, buddy, that's a bad behavior" is a bigot, homophobe, and whatever other names of ridicule they can come up with.

If you have even the slightest inkling of standing against the sexuality revolution lobby they will run out in the street in their frilly pink sashes, and point at you with their arms extended in a manner that leaves no doubt they are gay, and scream, "Shame, shame, shame."  Yeah, that'll shut you up.

They scream that you should get out of their bedrooms, but they wish to parade their bedroom throughout your life, in front of your kids, and in fact they plan (and are already doing so) to indoctrinate your kids in the schools so that you have no leg to stand on.

The debate being waged now by those challenging the homosexual agenda is through the argument of religious freedom.  My religious freedom to refuse service to anyone in my business no longer matters, it seems.  Serve the homosexual in the manner the homosexual wants, or else you will be sued, lose your business, and be forced into bankruptcy for daring to not give in to the demands of gay marriage proponents - unless of course you are Muslim, or a gay bakery asked to bake a Christian cake, then those principles don't apply to you.

And the religious freedom argument is losing.

Is homosexuality even a Natural Right as we are being told?  After all, former gays say change is possible, and they are the proof.  Perhaps the defense against the gay lobby should be that homosexuality is not a human right or a civil right because it's a choice.  Born that way?  That's not what former gays are saying.  That's not what science is saying, either.  Which makes homosexuality obviously a choice.  A behavior.  And since when is a voluntary behavior something that should be labeled a right?  A civil right?  A human right?  Do you, gay community, really believe your choice to act in a different way sexually should be compared to the real human rights atrocities we see in this world?  Are you truly that arrogant?

Then, there is the polygamy argument.  The slippery slope says that religious reasons for standing against homosexuality and same-sex marriage are a joke because the fight for adding polygamy back into our culture is. . . religiously driven.  A recent court fight regarding Utah laws where the plaintiffs are arguing that criminalizing polygamy is unconstitutional, in fact, is heading to the United States Supreme Court.  

That's one way to destroy the "one man and one woman" marriage argument.

What about the social order?  What does all of this do to our orderly society?

According to Breitbart News, Ken Klukowski, "It's nothing short of Orwellian to say that it's morally right and praiseworthy to redefine marriage to include everything, from homosexuality, to ... one man with four wives and seventeen children, to ten adults in joint bisexual relationships with unclear lines of custody[.] ... It is instead a recipe for social chaos and the abolition of any firm definition of the word 'family[.]'"

Slippery Slope.

What do we care?  Hey, there's all kinds of babies out there wanting to be adopted, so why not let a couple lesbians or gay guys adopt them.  What could go wrong?

The slippery slope has led to gender-confusion, arguments over bathrooms, and more ways for the sexually mentally ill to demand normalization of their affliction.

A teacher who has decided she is neither a he or a she threatened a lawsuit because people "offended" the teacher by not calling it "they," and was given $60,000 to keep "they" happy.

The following list from the Daily Signal should help explain why this bathroom/locker room "equality for all" madness is so dangerous:
  • In 2009, a sex offender named Richard Rendler was arrested for wearing fake breasts and a wig while loitering in a women’s restroom in a Campbell, California, shopping center. Rendler had previously been arrested on charges of child molestation and indecent exposure.
  • In 2010, Berkeley police arrested Gregorio Hernandez. Hernandez had disguised himself as a woman on two separate occasions to get inside a UC Berkeley locker room. Once in the locker room, Hernandez allegedly used his cell phone to photograph women.
  • In 2015, two spying instances were recorded in Virginia—one at a mall and one at a Wal-Mart. Both instances involved a man in women’s clothing who used a mirror and camera to take pictures of a mother and her 5-year-old daughter and a 53-year-old woman while they were in neighboring restroom stalls. The suspect wore a pink shirt and a long wig to present himself as a woman.
  • In 2016, a man used a women’s locker room at a public swimming poolin Washington state to undress in front of young girls who were changing for swim practice. When Seattle Parks and Recreation staff asked him to leave, the man claimed that “the law has changed and I have a right to be here.” The man was apparently referring to a Washington state rule that allows individuals to use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity. However, the man made no attempt to present as a woman.
The problem with slippery slopes is that the only way to escape them is to either avoid them in the first place (of which we have obviously failed at), catch them early before the slide really begins (something else it looks like we've not quite pulled off), or you have to ride the slope to the bottom where everything will crash and burn before a virtuous people is willing to realize the folly of their error. . . and then rebuild from there, only the begin the cycle all over again.

Hang on tight.  It's gonna be one helluva ride.
