Posted on 02/02/2014 3:33:51 AM PST by rhema
The unchecked progress of sexual liberalism means that we cannot say what kind of moral culture our children will inhabit as adults or, accordingly, what kind of moral culture will form our grandchildren. No responsible person can support such a movement.
In recent months there has been a good deal of discussion of the presidents apparent mendacity in his selling of the Affordable Care Act. If you like your health care you can keep it, the president repeatedly assured his fellow citizens while the law was pending before Congress. The roll-out of the law in late 2013, however, revealed that this promise was no good, and it is difficult to believe that the president was not aware of this even as he was making it. Because the use of dishonesty to win support for legislation is hardly compatible with the American promise of self-government, this issue has deserved all the attention it has gotten, and indeed it deserves even more.
Nevertheless, the sitting presidents efforts to achieve progress (as he understands it) by recourse to falsehoods should also lead us to probe more deeply and see the bigger, even more consequential falsehoods upon which liberalism has relied for the last two or three generations. With every step of the progress it has sought in recent decades, with every effort it has made to free us from some aspect of morality, liberalism has made an Obama-like assurance that has turned out to be wrong.
Five years ago, the president falsely told Americans, If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. For the last fifty years, liberalism as a movement of moral liberation has repeatedly assured Americans, If you like your morality, you can keep your morality. In both cases, the game is to promise

what kind of moral culture will form our grandchildren.
I’ve lived the good moral life we had in the 40’s, 50’s and the first part of the 60’s.
Now, with each passing year the morals of our society have been destroyed more and more.
I can’t imagine our society in the next 20 years.
Liberal don’t accept any other morality than their own. Its not enough that gays could do whatever they want in their own bedroom. They have to force the rest of society to accept them or be punished
Very well said.
I agree with most of the points in this essay, but he really should have started the process with the adoption of “no fault divorce”. The breakdown of sexual morality in America starts there, IMHO.
People who participated in the Stonewall riots precipitated by Police attempts to arrest an underaged prostitute in a bar, attempted to trap the Police in the bar while it was burning down.
They tried to murder the Police.
No fault divorce is bad, but I would argue its a symptom rather than a cause. The real breakdown in sexual morality began with the invention and introduction of cheap reliable contraceptives in the mid 60’s. If you look at the charts, the numbers of divorces, abortions, teenage pregnancies, and incidence of assorted STD’s all skyrocket from that time on.
You can keep you morality as long as you believe like the liberals do.
I'm real close to some civil disobedience and ready to start DEMANDING equal time!
No, it was preceded by abolishing laws/taboos against birth control. That made no-fault divorce all the easier to sell.
