The Scam of Moral Irrelevance

Have you ever noticed that every time the Godless Left promotes any of the moral depravities that they hold so dear, a predictable pattern develops. 

Whatever their “vice du jour” might be, their initial sales pitch will be that it is morally acceptable.  Of course, this inevitably fails because whatever they are pushing is generally so ghastly that it is impossible to sell it on its own merits.  So their fall-back strategy is to play the old “you can’t legislate morality” card.  They will even wrap it around some absurd interpretation of American history in which our founding fathers sacrificed their lives and treasure so we could all live in a nation where laws are made free of any moral considerations.  Then, for good measure, they will toss in something about the constitutional separation of church and state, despite the fact that such a concept is found nowhere in the U.S. Constitution. 

Sadly, this scam often works.  America is in such a state of moral and intellectual decay that otherwise decent intelligent people actually suck-up this loopy philosophy.  It is part of the culture of “situational ethics” in which genuine ethics are seen as abnormal and perhaps even unpatriotic.  In our brave new world of unfettered tolerance and moral-relativism, it is not enough to believe that some things are not black and white but shades of gray; you must now believe that everything is a shade of gray and that black and white do not exist.  This philosophy thrives because the American people have become so open-minded that their brains fell out.     

Here are the facts:  No governmental body can pass laws that will make an immoral person moral.  So they don’t try.  Legislation is not about regulating beliefs, it’s about controlling behavior.  When a legislature passes laws against racial discrimination, it does not concern itself with the personal moral beliefs of people who sincerely think racial discrimination is okay.  The legislature has determined that discrimination is not morally acceptable and, therefore, it will not be legally permitted regardless of what some racist might think.  In other words, society imposes its belief system on someone who has a completely different belief system.  Any way you look at it, that is legislating morality.   

So don’t let the Godless Left fool you.  The law is nothing more or less than society’s collective moral values, and it legislates that morality by regulating behavior.  At the moment we abandon that principal, our legislative bodies will be left with no legitimate foundation upon which any law can be justified.  If that happens, our country will be doomed to collapse into a state of bedlam and anarchy.

"The law is nothing more or less than society’s collective moral values..." and it legislates that morality by regulating behavior."

Sadly, this is true. And I say sadly because when a society's "collection of moral values" includes the notion that slavery is morally acceptable, or that compulsory female circumcision is morally acceptable, or that forced abortion is morally acceptable, laws pandering to those notions become enshrined. Which is why "The law" ought to be based on, then, is something other than a set of socially determined moral values; it should be based on the moral values that have long ago been determined and set out by the ultimate moral authority: God Himself. In other words, what we really should be fighting for is a theocratic government based on Christianity.

"The law is nothing more or less than society’s collective moral values, and it legislates that morality by regulating behavior. At the moment we abandon that principal, our legislative bodies will be left with no legitimate foundation upon which any law can be justified."

And that's exactly why we have abortion, euthanasia, contraception, the illicit conception of human life, codified homosexual activity and myriad other abuses of the human person. The Enlightenment liberated us from God, the divine law and the natural that follows from it. Today's nihilist-humanists have filled the void left by our deposed God and imposed their own travesty of the natural law upon society. Ergo, morality is whatever they wish it to be. This, the very definition of moral relativism.

The Godless left/Population Control crowd also loves to dress up in false but attractive linguistic cover any pernicious, foul, abominable thing that furthers their agenda of population control; e.g.,of killing off all the "surplus" population (note that this category never includes any of them) who are allegedly sucking mother earth's precious resources dry.

Thus, the slogan "Celebrate Diversity" (a code phrase meaning "tolerate any kind of destructive sexual perversion that comes down the pike") is to the promotion of homosexual sodomy (and the corresponding criminalization of anyone who decries it) what "Freedom of Choice" (a code phrase meaning "Let doctors kill instead of treat unborn children, and exploit, maim and kill their mothers via induced abortion) is to the promotion and perpetration of child-killing.

Both are patently false. Real diversity, as in Male and female created He them/"vive la difference" and it's ultimate celebration, devoted, committed, monogamous, heterosexual marriage, are denigrated by the left because they breed the two things they hate most: more people, and familial loyalties that compete with total allegiance to the totalitarian, socialist state they foolishly insist upon calling "utopia."

Homosexual sodomy is a P.C. freak's dream; those ensnared in it die young(the median age of death for a practicing male sodomite is 45), they don't reproduce, they spread deadly std's, and they recruit young teenagers, especially, into their own desperate, barren deathdance. Sometimes they go even further; when I was about 11 or 12, a schoolmate of mine was found, along with two of his peers, stripped from the waist down, sodomized and stabbed to death. The perpetrator turned out (surprise, surprise!) to be an adult male sodomite employed by a local ice cream parlor that was, at the time,a popular after-school,after-game hangout for kids from elementary through high school.(It's popularity waned considerably after this incident; I don't think it stayed open a month after this predator was convicted.) Around that same time, two other schoolboys, brothers, suffered a similar fate; they were found with their genitals practically chewn off. CAN ANYBODY SAY HATE CRIME?! This was years ago; but all you will hear about now in connection with "hate crimes" are cases like Matthew Shepard, despite the fact that Shepard was not legally murdered, and he was not murdered on account of his sexual perversion.

Abortion on demand is rabidly anti-choice in that it is typically an act of desperation, not free volition, on the part of the mother involved; it is never the choice of it's first victim, the child whose life is deliberately targeted. Dead people don't have any choices, and murder itself is the ultimate denial of choice to the victims of the murderer. Legalized abortion on demand was never put before the American voters to decide; it was a raw act of judicial fiat imposed on us by 7 men, all of whom had already been born, and none of whom would be injured or killed by it.

Dr. Bernard Nathanson, co-founder of NARAL who coined the pro-abortion slogans "Freedom of choice", and "Women must have control over their own bodies", which remain the rallying cries of proaborts everywhere, later repented his involvement in childkilling, and confessed, "I remember laughing when we made those slogans up," ... "We were looking for some sexy, catchy slogans to capture public opinion. They were very cynical slogans then, just as all of these slogans today are very, very cynical."

The fact is, Hate crimes legislation is not about protecting sodomites; they are killing themselves, and the best way to protect them and others is to criminalize their destructive sexual activity. The chief goal of hate crimes legislation is, and has always been, the criminalization of any loyalty, tie, allegiance to any higher authority than the state; it's whole point is, thus, to legislate idolatry.

Dear Mr. "Crusher",
[Yes, I am changing your surname to Crusher. The Abortion Crusher! :-) I hope you like it?]

Just a quick note. I really enjoyed finding your site and forum. You can find my post to the ProLifeAmerica Forum which started the Live Fetal Extraction & Incubation thread. Please drop on by and help us outline the "black & white" areas of what is proposed as a new legislative strategy against Abortion. There are many "shades of gray" at the moment -- mostly due to many things that need further imagination and moral analysis -- and I do not like that condition. My mission is to infect your mind and other key Pro-Lifers with the Project EXCALIBUR thoughts and moral considerations so that perhaps it can assist in squashing Abortion someday soon. Simple as that. I am not a pusher of the idea at this point because the idea needs refinement, restraints, and moral integration into the existing Anti-Abortion strategy as a black & white matter, not gray. I have other work to do. In whatever way you can make that technical vision serve to further destroy Abortion, I am entirely content and thrilled. You may consider myself and cause at your service for whatever you need.

God bless you!
