“The Trump administration,” says The Hill, “is planning to launch a worldwide effort to end the criminalization of homosexuality.”
U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, the highest-profile openly gay person in the administration, will reportedly lead the effort, which will be kicked off in Berlin Tuesday night.
“It is concerning that, in the 21st century, some 70 countries continue to have laws that criminalize LGBTI status or conduct,” a U.S. official involved in organizing the event told NBC News…
“This really is not a big policy departure,” Palladino told reporters. “This is longstanding and it’s bipartisan.”
When asked whether he would describe the meetings as a “new initiative,” Palladino replied: “I would say that this is a good opportunity to listen and to discuss ideas about how the United States can advance decriminalization of homosexuality around the world. And that’s been our policy.”…
The plan is reportedly aimed at denouncing Iran over its human rights record.
Grenell has been a public critic of Iran, but has struggled to convince European nations to reimpose sanctions on the Middle Eastern nation following President Trump’s removal of the U.S. from the Obama-era Iran nuclear deal.
With this, the USA has declared cultural war on Singapore.
And India. And Papua New Guinea, Jamaica, Samoa, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Barbados, Nigeria, Namibia, Cameroon, Kenya, Trinidad and Tobago, and some sixty other countries that still hue to Reality. Including, at least in this way, Iran.
That the deep state and various Benjamin-gifting lobbying groups (which, as we learned last week, have no influence over our politicians) are deeply interested in Iran is well known. But most of us can’t, and shouldn’t, care about that country. Iran is no threat to anybody here; it is not going to launch an invasion against our shores.
Hey. We’re the United States of America! And if we insist everybody should believe exactly as we do, why, darn it, they had sure better. If they don’t, we’ll unleash Bill Kristol and Max Boot editorials explaining why they should be bombed.
What if they think differently than we, and they try to impose their beliefs on us? No, no. That would be collusion.
Now the reaction among reactionaries (who are by definition skilled at reacting) is uniform horror, but mixed with resignation. It’s not like we didn’t see this coming, though we did hope it would come a little slower. As I have said many times, Trump “is a respite, a brief interlude before we continue our descent. Unless something unforeseen happens, and a hero arises, or the Great Chastisement occurs, we are doomed.”
The left loves the move, though, right? No. Here’s Out, a magazine supportive of sodomy: “Trump’s Plan to Decriminalize Homosexuality Is an Old Racist Tactic: Here’s why we shouldn’t be cheering the Trump administration.” Independent: “As Trump administration announces campaign to decriminalise homosexuality – here are eight anti-LGBT things the president has done.” Et cetera.
Well, we can put this down to the anti-Trump mania which consumes progressives, who have convinced themselves Trump is not Hitler, but something worse than Hitler. Or, rather, Global-Warming-Hitler, in the sense that he’s not “literally” Hitler at this moment, just like global warming hasn’t caused any doom yet, but Trump, like global warming, will one sunny morning emerge from the Oval Office with a little black moustache and start Holocaust 2.0. (Global warming with a moustache?)
Anyway, in a mere fifty years, sodomy has gone from something criticized, seen as abnormal and a perversion of the natural order, which it is, to being accepted, to being a matter of Pride, to being championed. This is among conservatives. Proving, again, conservatives are tomorrow’s progressives today.
Instead of decriminalizing sodomy, we ought to recriminalize it. Think of the benefits! None of us would be forced to say sodomy is good, which is now the case. If you think not, try quoting God-Jesus-Holy Spirit to your colleagues, “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination”, and see what HR says. Or see if you even have colleagues.
Punishments need not be harsh for malefactors; we can adopt Singapore’s methods, for instance. If sodomy is illegal, as it once was, then so would be pornography focusing on it, and all that flows from that, including gender and tranny madness, the fiction of same-sex “marriage”. Or we could go the way of Russia and outlaw pro-sodomy propaganda. Let people do whatever they will, within limits, but leave the rest of us out of it.
But no. That is not how puritanism works. Puritans are not satisfied with doing what they will. Puritans do not demand mere obedience. They insist on your open conversion. This is why universities, the hottest beds of puritanism, require Diversity Oaths (which includes sexual desire). Once again I predict the expansion of these oaths for employment everywhere.
Update From a new article at American Sun (which I wish I read first!):
Unlike his secular, sodomitical counterparts, the Christian bugman yet adheres to Christian teaching. But this teaching does not engage his personality; it cannot, no more than an object can rest upon air. The Christian bugman still nominally opposes, say, sodomy, but he does not hate them with the kind of fiery hatred such a grotesque sin deserves. The Christian bugman shrugs de gustibus non disputandum about sins once recognized as calling out to heaven for vengeance, which even infidels like Jefferson saw as deserving of castration. To the bugman, the objective gruesomeness of such acts is palliated by their popularity, and thus God’s will is not a sin striking at his heart, but a mere regulatory matter between the administrative God and his vassals. The sodomite is no longer recognized as the moral monster he is, but as someone akin to a jaywalker or litterbug—an offender, sure, but not one whose offense stabs at the heart.
