The Tyranny of Decadence By Dr. Peter Jones In our present world, decadence is replacing decency. For the sake of personal freedom our culture sanctions a sexual revolution that German sociologist, Gabriele Kuby believes “will quite possibly prove to be the most destructive revolution in history.” She goes on to state that “the extent to […]
REVIEW OF Rachel Lu, “The LGBT Movement Will Self-Destruct,” The Federalist (May 31, 2016) http://thefederalist.com/2016/05/31/the-lgbt-movement-will-self-destruct/ Rachel Lu begins her controversial thesis by describing the innocuous rise and fall of “inventive spelling,” which proposed liberating options like “girl,” “gurl” and “grrrrl.” This is hardly reason to think that the supremacy of pan-sexuality will disappear as speedily.

The new Western progressive view of sexuality claims that there are no given sexual identities. Each individual creates his, her “hir”, “zir”, “nir”, “vis”, “eir” or “Xyr” sexual self-definition in our approaching “just” society. No opposition will be considered.

The whole world, whatever its ethnicity or nationality, is outraged. Because it was a […]
