Men or Cattle?

1. We must have freedom of choice in matters of human sexuality, and

2. They have no choice, God made them that way, and so let’s just accept them, embrace them, even praise them for their courage to be who they are.

So which is it? Freedom of choice or they have no choice?

Now, I know it is not P.C. to wonder out loud about such things, but there is something eerily Marxist-Leninist about this mixed-signal approach to homosexuality that can’t be ignored.

Here’s the list.

1. Inconsistency. Let’s protect freedom of choice for gays, but then again, “they have no choice.” We need to understand, in the “one step forward, two steps back” world of the left, inconsistency is consistent, logical and moral if personal and political empowerment result. Say what needs to be said, support what needs to be supported, at any given moment, in any given set of circumstances, even if this requires day-by-day, minute-by-minute, sentence-by-sentence flip-flops. Do it. “The ends justify the means.” Plain and simple.

2. A denunciation of God. Listen, declaring that God made homosexuals homosexual implies that God is the author of their sin – the same worn-out argument that hopes to indict God as cruel and unjust, and thus non-existent.

3. An attack on the church. When activists combine the “I was made that way” contention with ‘evidence’ provided by grant-driven ‘science’ and politically correct-driven legislation, they have an iron-fisted plan to subvert and shackle the Christian church, handing over to the state the decision-making power of what can and cannot be taught and practiced.

It’s already happening in Canada and Europe – preachers fined and imprisoned for calling sin, sin. It’s a new class of ‘hate’ crime. We’ve already seen how the gay lobby and the left have gone after the largely church-sponsored Boy Scouts.

So, who’s using the state to attack whom?

4. Men are cattle. Returning to the point 1 supposition that men must be free to make choices but men don’t possess agency, this parallels nicely the Marxist-Leninist claim that, yes, men do make choices, but, no, not as you think, but rather they are DRIVEN to those choices, like cattle.

This is called determinism.

Not long after Marx and co. invented this demeaning, excuse-laden, victim-multiplying philosophy on man, psychology came into being and picked up the iron ball and ran with it. Since then, nearly every psychological theory, at its root, reinforces the man-bereft-of-agency idea, blaming all human action on the environment, or conditioning, or genetics – anything but the Divine Gift of moral agency, and conscience, and obedience to the influence of an outside Higher Power.

Men can’t sacrifice their sins on the alter, can they, for the sake of faith and fidelity?

5. Soft on crime, soft on sin, soft on convicted felons and soft on terrorism. Listen, if men are born that way, if men have no choice, if men are victimized by circumstances (including by capitalist economics and Judeo-Christian morality), it’s understandable why killers kill, why gays are gay, why terrorists hate America, and why we MUST be tolerant of their miscues, and, well, given time and re-education, full of praise for their courage to be who they are.

This line of reasoning leads to questions like how can sin be sin, or crime be crime, if men and women can’t help themselves? Thus, in the world of Marx & Lenin, there is no virtue, there is no sin – but wait a minute, one virtue only, tolerance for every form of debauchery, and one sin only, tolerance for capitalism and Christianity. A perfect route to pushing the liberty they claim to be enlarging into moral and thus political anarchy followed by law-and-order tyranny.

Either we are children of God, endowed with moral agency, a conscience, and the ability to ‘put off the natural man,’ that is, to rise above animal instincts, environment, conditioning, genetic influences, and economic pressures, or we are not.

Which is it? Men or cattle?

If men, then we need to act like men and stop making excuses, and stop supporting candidates who would keep us in the fields grazing.
