Skip to comments.Sex Slaves, Sexual Anarchy, Decadence Festivals Signs of Something Really Rotten

Christian News writer Heather Clark reports that a group of nine men who attended the Southern Decadence Festival in New Orleans were arrested and jailed for violating a new city ordinance that prohibits religious and other free speech after sundown on the city's famed Bourbon Street. The ordinance, which was passed in October 2011, is called "Aggressive Solicitation." Subsection four states,
"It shall be prohibited for any person or group of persons to loiter or congregate on Bourbon Street for the purpose of disseminating any social, political or religious message between the hours of sunset and sunrise." (Nine Men Arrested at New Orleans 'Decadence' Festival for Religious Speech After Sundown, Heather Clark, Christian News, Sept.2, 2012)
Dissenters hold that the statute is a blatant violation of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution but "enlightened" progressive supporters hold that decadence is a First Amendment right.
The Southern Decadence Festival is one of our nation's most notorious celebrations of sodomy, public sex acts, prostitution, drunkenness, and worse, but is by no means the only such festival. According to this year's Autumn Gay Pride Calendar, decadence festivals are held over and across post-Christian America and Western Europe as well as in Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, Thailand, Brazil, Belarus, Ireland, Japan, Scotland, China, S. Africa, India and Taipei. (source: http://gaytravel.about.com/od/gaypridecalendars/qt/September_Pride.htm )
The decent, God-fearing, family loving America poignantly captured on canvas by Norman Rockwell is dead, or nearly so. In its place is ancient Carthage, a brash, devil-worshipping, pleasure-seeking, drunken, obscenely libidinous freak-show:
"I came to Carthage, and all around me in my ears were the sizzling and frying of unholy loves..." (St. Augustine, 354 AD, The Confessions of St Augustine)
Ancient Carthage was a porn-fueled, sexually obsessed, almost anything goes society characterized by rampant sexually transmitted diseases, jealousy, suspicion, paranoia, hate, mental illness, sexual sadism, murder and crime in general.
Foolish, proud, willfully ignorant modern Western progressives believe they are enlightened, forward-looking and scientific but they aren't. In reality they haven't progressed one inch higher than the ancients.
Contrary to what moderns believe, the first sexual revolution was not in the 60s and 70s. No, the first revolution ever was brought about first by Judaism and then by Christianity, and as Dennis Prager noted, it radically changed the world.
Writing in "Judaism's Sexual Revolution: Why Judaism And Then Christianity Rejected Homosexuality," Prager said,
'.....Human sexuality, especially male sexuality.....is utterly wild. Men have had sex with women.....men....little girls and young boys....a single partner...large groups....immediate family members...animals....inanimate objects....by dressing in women's garments.....through urinating and defecating on each other....by watching other humans be tortured.....by fondling children....by looking at pictures of bodies or parts of bodies. Not all have been condoned.....but many have, and all illustrate what the unchannelled sex drive can lead to."
Human sexuality needs to be properly channeled. Proper channeling leads to civility, safety, trust, and true social progress. But when the sex genie is unleashed, as is the situation throughout America and the West, things begin to go terribly wrong, as evidenced by the growing plague of public sex acts, serial killers, rapists, sado-masochists (leather people), pederasts, pedophiles and other predators preying upon Americans and their children. America has sunk so low that even young children sexually prey on other children. In fact, sex crimes are more frequent and more evil than ever.
In a 2003 book, "Sex Related Homicide And Death Investigation," Vernon Geberth, (ret. NYPD lieutenant commander Bronx Homicide) observed that,
"....sex related cases I am encountering today (as a consultant) are more frequent, vicious, and despicable than I ever experienced as a homicide cop.....There are more serial killers today....."
Geberth provides an example of a typical sexual sadist. In his own words the sadist recounts his arrival in Denver:
"When I got to Denver there were a lot of sex shops....I found bondage magazines and videos....of women and young girls tied, bound, and gagged in just about every way possible. I was in heaven. I bought lots of magazines and videos. After a year or so......I wanted the real thing......I didn't want a willing partner (though).....I began to walk the streets.......looking for the right woman or girl....." (pp. 44-45)
And then there's this:
"......the suspect......was a fetish burglar......(he) acted out his most perverse fantasies with her body.....(the) suspect made....1-900 sex-line phone calls....day and night from the victim's residence........he brought porn magazines into the scene.........he engaged in sadistic sexual activities with the victim's body." (pp. 16-17)
Geberth recounts case after brutally horrible case wherein the most unspeakable evils are perpetrated upon women, boys, and girls before their lives are snuffed out as if of no further importance.
In an address, "Pornography, Depicted Violence, And Crime," given by Richard M. Reade, Prosecutor, State of Victoria (Aus.) on Mar. 16, 1991, Reade said,
"In my opinion...... the serious problem our community faces (is) a result of porn.....made freely available..." (The Link Between Pornography and Violent Crimes, Robert Peters, Free Republic, Mar. 2004)
Reade describes in graphic, horrifying details, a sadistically brutal attack upon a 31 year old woman. On being arrested the sadist said,
"I have been reading books on bondage and I felt a strong urge to act out what was in the books......I knew it was wrong but couldn't help myself......It's those bondage books......those rotten books!" (ibid)
Geberth had this to say about sexual fantasies, and how they can become aberrant,
"....development of bizarre sexual images involving grotesque unnatural distortions of sexual imagery....is reinforced through repetition, illustrated by the use of sadistic porn and fantasy stories.....(of) sexual sadism." He added, "Sadistic fantasies.....may involve activities that indicate...dominance...over the victim......This case involved Cameron Hooker......(his) fantasy was to dominate and torture nude women......his fantasies were fueled by an extensive collection of hard-core porn..." (pp. 23 and 741)
Watch Right Internet Crimes Against Children is an extensive collection of law enforcement agencies, weblogs, and informational sites dedicated to tracking and apprehending sex criminals in the hope of preventing sex crimes against children. Scores of crimes are listed on their website and updated daily. Here is one example:
"39 arrested in NJ for child porn distribution. Those arrested range in age from 14-61 and include a high-school coach, hockey coach, a lawyer, and a pediatric surgeon."
If bondage, sado-masochism, sodomy, prostitution, and decadence in general are constitutionally protected rights in our morally insane culture, then why not sex slavery and other forms of bondage?
"The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency estimates that 50,000 people are trafficked into or transited through the U.S.A. annually as sex slaves, domestics, garment, and agricultural slaves." (Human Trafficking & Modern-day Slavery
Morally-insane progressive liberal corrupters and the awe-struck liberalized groupies Christian and non-Christian who adore them feel that as long as there is 'love' then virtually anything is permissible if it makes you happy. Lost in a cloud of feel-good ignorance and hyper-hubris they feel that at long last humankind has been emancipated from the slavery of Biblical sexual ethics. Liberated libidos have finally emerged into the bright sunshine and warm fuzzy-feelings of anything goes if it feels good and makes you happy.
Sexual emancipation is as new as modern (neo-pagan) evolutionary naturalism. It is part of our so-called scientifically enlightened "modern" age. Or is it? Pitirim Sorokin vehemently disagrees. In his book, "The American Sex Revolution," Sorokin said:
"Sexual anarchy assumed extreme forms and spread through a large part of the population. Side by side with an increase of sexual perversions, a shameless sexual promiscuity also greatly increased. They seduced members of the same family. Relations between father and daughter.....son and mother.......Adultery, rape......prostitution greatly increased.........homosexual love entered the mores of the population......all the aberrations of morbid eroticism........unnatural relations, flagellations, and sodomy." (p. 93)
Sorokin was contrasting sexually emancipated America with the morally depraved, sexually decadent social conditions in the Old Kingdom of Egypt 4,500 years ago just prior to its collapse. In this light, sexual anarchy, slavery and Decadence Festivals are not signs of something good but of something really, really sick, twisted and rotten. Post-Christian America and the West are not going forward but quickly backsliding to an earlier and vastly lower level of intelligence and wickedness.
Slavery, sexual anarchy and Decadence Festivals are ominous signs of the evil sweeping over and around our planet, and evil is nothing,
".....but a privation of good, which can continue to the point where a thing ceases to exist altogether." St. Augustine

There’s something terribly ironical about someone being arrested for speaking out during a festival that celebrates speaking out.
Isn’t somebody here supposed to yell RULES. Don’t we need some pictures to get us excited? A celebration of lust?
Thank God someone gets it.
“Foolish, proud, willfully ignorant modern Western progressives believe they are enlightened, forward-looking and scientific but they aren’t. In reality they haven’t progressed one inch higher than the ancients.”
It’s easy to understand why this law was passed.
They don’t want anyone getting in the way of the drunks and faggots in the old quarter of New Orleans.
I went to New Orleans once. Once was enough for me.
I'm afraid the exalted days for our nation may be drawing to a close. One day the applicable biblical phrase might be "Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin."
“Theres something terribly ironical about someone being arrested for speaking out during a festival that celebrates speaking out.”
Spirited: All very understandable when consequences are to be kept concealed at whatever cost.
And a “festival” that celebrates every conceivable form of perversion as “expression,” but makes a crime of expressing righteousness, which is explicitly protected under the First Amendment.
Seeing dogs mating would be the same as what these people do.
Some sexual immorality is permissible. Got it.
Here’s what you do. Put some women in burkahs with signs that say “Allah condemns perversion” and watch the confusion that follows.
I was at an anti HHS mandate rally for life in SF last weekend. Of course, the weirdos had to come out and counter protest too, wearing the most outlandish drag costumes....I think they were called the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. A more apt name would be the Drama Queens. What a freakshow. I actually felt sorry for them, they really do live in the outer darkness of depravity and don’t realize it. They walked through the crowd hoping to create a disturbance but everyone just laughed at them.
At least they were clothed.
This article is right on the money. The sexual revolution.....wasn’t. Just the same ol same ol depravity already done to death.
Perhaps it's appropriate that the Vandals made Carthage their capital a few decades later.
Apparently that does NOT include the "social" messages spread by the "check it out" guys handing out fliers for the "adult" clubs on the street...

Rights for me but not for thee.
They’re not going to like it very much when they stand before their Creator and bow the knee and confess that Jesus is Lord and that they were wrong.
They won’t be able to shut God down with their stupid rules and regulations and hypocrisy.
Woe to them that call good evil, and evil good.
I'm afraid the exalted days for our nation may be drawing to a close."
We've been laughing as we sped toward the cliff for so long that people still don't realize we went on over the edge when the majority gave control of Congress back to the democrat fascists back in '97. We've been so blessed and safe for so long that it's a long, long, way to the bottom and takes a while to get there, but now we're pretty close to the bottom.
This election isn't really about turning anything around, either. It's about who is going to be in charge of picking up the pieces when the whole mess comes to a sudden stop as it hits the bottom of that very tall cliff we drove over.
How long, O Lord (holy and true) dost thou not judge and revenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth ?
After making a point of telling the world we're a Christian nation for so long the bill for the more than fifty million who have been murdered by abortion and the three to five times as many who have been murdered by abortifacient contraceptives won't be much longer in coming. Being given over to a reprobate mind is just God's way of letting us know the full bill is on the way.
In the mean time, some folks who claim to be Christian pass their time by pointing out that a great many of those in the Catholic minority do not live their faith. It's their way of diverting attention from the fact that the Protestant majority drinks the corrupted pus of this society to the dregs, up to and including approving of the use of contraceptives as a way to participate in the mass murder of infants.
So let me get this straight...it’s ok for perverts to go out in public doing lewd acts, displaying public nudity, speak for “gay rights”, & having public sex, yet it isn’t ok for a religious person to voice his/her personal opinion about what he/she thinks about perverted behavior?
Shame on the state for depriving those 9 men of their own civil rights of to freedom of speech & freedom of religion.
“its ok for perverts to go out in public doing lewd acts, displaying public nudity, speak for gay rights, & having public sex, yet it isnt ok for a religious person to voice his/her personal opinion about what he/she thinks about perverted behavior?”
Spirited: Oh but decadence is good for the economy while anti-decadence is not (sarc).
That phrase was amply applied in this very worthy book, the horrifying follow-up to the excellent America Alone:
by Mark Steyn
Optimistic About Americas Future?
In his giant New York Times bestseller, America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It, Mark Steyn predicted collapse for the rest of the Western World. Now, he adds, America has caught up with Europe on the great rush to self-destruction.
Its not just our looming financial collapse; its not just a culture that seems on a fast track to perdition, full of hapless, indulgent, childish people who think government has the answer for every problem; its not just Americas potential eclipse as a world power because of the drunken sailor policymaking in Washingtonno, its all this and more that spells one word for America: Armageddon.
What will a world without American leadership look like? It wont be prettynot for you and not for your children. Americas decline wont be gradual, like an aging Europe sipping espresso at a café until extinction (and the odd Greek or Islamist riot). No, Americas decline will be a wrenching affair marked by violence and possibly secession.
With his trademark wit, Steyn delivers the depressing news with raw and unblinking honestybut also with the touch of vaudeville...that makes him the most entertaining, yet profound, columnist on the planet. And as an immigrant with nowhere else to go, he offers his own prescription for winning America back from the feckless and arrogant liberal establishment that has done its level best to suffocate the worlds last best hope in a miasma of debt, decay, and debility. You will not read a more importantor more alarming, or even funnierbook all year than After America.
[overview from Barnes & Noble: link at title above.]
We went off the cliff in 1948 when the Supreme Court placed atheists on the same legal footing as believers, constructing its ludicrous Separation of Church and State doctrines out of a single line in a letter written by Thomas Jefferson. It is a logical impossibility -- either there is a God, or there isn't. Either our nation believes in "nature and nature's God" or it doesn't.
Trying to make relativist/atheist philosophy fit under our Constitution cannot work -- it frustrates every effort towards justice for the righteous and reduces every legal question to a race to the bottom.
Ping to our recent discussion.
The same event was struck down twice. 1st by Katrina, then by Issac over a 7 yr period. Make no mistake, YHWH is pissed
