The Slippery Slope Toward Sodom (Part One)
Gene Lalor | September 17, 2012
Along with “kick the can down the road” and “throw him under the bus”, the clichÃ©d phrase “slippery slope” is often misused and overused.Â What particularÂ ”can”, “road”, “bus”, or “slope”Â are we talking about?Â
Still,Â few expressions better capture the essence of what’s been going onÂ in America over the course of the last few years than the image conjured up by the expressionÂ ”slippery slope”.Â Apply some imagination and the termÂ connotesÂ the sense of an inexorable, national slide downÂ from aÂ majestic peak into aÂ noisome swamp.Â Â
OnlyÂ those totallyÂ oblivious of reality would deny that our nationÂ has beenÂ rapidly slipping, sliding, even plummeting from a variety of high and lofty pinnacles achieved over centuries into various treacherous political, cultural, andÂ moral swamps.Â Â Not the least ofÂ that slippageÂ is our rapid descent into an immoral morassÂ at the bottom of which isÂ national oblivion.Â
From the point of view of a layman and not a religious minister–and hardly a moralistic, moralizing layman at that–to deny the United States of America has radically changed in almost every way over the last four years is to deny the truth of your lying eyes.Â Â To deny America isÂ on the pathÂ to becoming aÂ modern-day SodomÂ representsÂ an excursion into a fool’s paradise of the worst order.Â Â Â Â Â
Understandably, fewÂ of usÂ think much aboutÂ Genesis’Â gory details of the obliteration of Sodom and Gomorrah, ancient citiesÂ destroyed because of gross and grossly un-repentant sins against God and nature committed by their residents.Â According to the Old Testament, Sodom and Gomorrah were reduced to ashes becauseÂ theyÂ had become the quintessential antitheses of what the Almighty planned when He created our universeÂ and our planet.
Â By all Hebrew, Christian and Muslim accounts,Â fire and brimstone rained down on Sodom and Gomorrah reducing themÂ to ashes and Lot’s wifeÂ was subsequently reduced to a pillar of salt.Â Â The cities were universally populated byÂ evil peopleÂ andÂ Lot’s unfortunate wifeÂ became a human salt lick due to her insatiable curiosity.Â Â
There are many degrees and types of evil and the specific nature ofÂ Sodomite evil is rarely detailed today since it’s politically incorrect to identify the precise cause of Sodom’s destruction asÂ rampant homosexuality.Â That cause isÂ illustrated by this passage from Genesis 19:5:Â ”Then all the men of the city surrounded Lot’s house and said, ‘Where are the men who came to you tonight?Â Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.’ “Â
Lot offered to give Sodom’s homosexuals his two virgin daughters instead, a very generous offer the mob furiously rejected and tried to break down his door to get at the male visitors inside.Â What happened toÂ those visitors is unclear but the Lot family fled and the rest is biblical history.Â Â
However, back to the matter at hand, America’s dismal swamp where homosexuals and otherÂ deviantsÂ don’t need to break down doors to get at their prey.Â Our culture has become so immersed in every variety of sexual depravity that the depraved need only advertise on Craig’s List or to find their victims.Â
The homosexual rape and torture of 13 year old Jesse Dirkhising in 1999 is a prime example not only of depradation but of the media’s complicity in such evil by selective reporting which effectively condones the evil.Â Â TIME magazine published an articleÂ back thenÂ that would never make it into MSM print today.Â
“Why One Murder Makes Page One and Another Is Lost in the News Briefs”Â attemptedÂ to explain the extreme disparity between the widespread, national coverage of the heinous murder of a 21 year old gay man who was killed for his cash and for foolishly hitting on drunken louts in a WyomingÂ tavernÂ and theÂ far more horrific murder of an innocentÂ 13 year old boy by two gay perverts who got off as much by sexually abusing andÂ torturingÂ him asÂ they did by killing him.Â
As a result of his death, Matthew Shepard became a cause cÃ©lÃ¨bre, had a federal law named in his honor, Â and became a homosexual icon; Jesse Dirkhising became a nonentity and was awarded a modest tombstone. Â Â
Anyone else think there’s something extremely awry there?
To its discreditÂ and true to liberal form, TIME alleged Shepard died because ofÂ anti-gay prejudice andÂ Jesse died as a result of a muchÂ less grievous, generic “sexÂ crime.” (http://tiny.cc/vm6jkw)Â
What a crock!Â
Shepard was murdered not because he was proudly queer but because he had money that his inebriated murderers wanted and because he had made the grave mistake of getting horny with straight rednecks who would sooner get sexually involved with a rattlesnake than with a blazing homosexual.Â Jesse Dirkhising was murderedÂ because he was young, red meat for two homosexual perverts who should have been castrated in their mothers’ wombs.Â
Never disregard the power and reach of the un-elected FourthÂ Estate.Â
The MSM has changed historyÂ in the past and now, in conjunction with the entertainment industry,Â they are in process of doingÂ so again.Â The mainstream news media has been greasing the slippery, Sodom-slope for years by misreporting and not reporting thousands of violent crimes committed by gays while the entertainment industry is awash with gay characters andÂ LGBT themes.
Compounding their complicity, the MSM often reports weirdly radical events and news as if they were perfectly normal.Â
Â Case in point, earlier this month the Boston Globe featured an articleÂ andÂ a photo on its websiteÂ dealing with a Connecticut camp forÂ ”transgender kids.”Â Â A cutesy caption for the picture reads, “Only when you see tags around campersâ€™ necks, with the words ‘(HE)’ or ‘(SHE)’ under their names, do you realize somethingâ€™sÂ different here. . . idle chatter on sports, music, school, and teenage crushes blends right in with talk about ‘coming out,’ ‘transitioning,’ puberty blockers–and bullying.” http://tiny.cc/uj0qkwÂ Â
A more apt caption could be: “Camp Caters to Disturbed Future-Suicidal Children.”Â Another thought:Â In the interests of full disclosure, maybe the sexual inclinations of reporters should be prominently displayed?Â Â
Â OverÂ the last decade Hollywood and television have jumped into the normalizing-homosexuality, normalizing-LGBT,Â campaigns by producing movies and sitcomsÂ depicting homosexuals as just your average, normal co-workers and neighbors.Â Â During the last four years, television has virtually exploded with gay-LGBT programming, including many shows like “Glee” targeting kids.Â Â Â
I doubt any AmericanÂ citiesÂ will literally be visited by fire and brimstone.Â As of now,Â with the possible exception of San Francisco, there are far more than the minimum Sodom-standardÂ of ten good, straight people in residence within most American cities.Â Â I’m guessing our oblivion will be accomplished by our slipping intoÂ complacency toward the corruption surrounding us.Â
