In-your-face stuff from an opinionated
rural north Idaho housewife.
My daughter (early 40's) has had several of her friends suddenly declare that they are gay over the past 15 years. Prior to this, all had been in multiple relationships with men. Each of these women were badly hurt by a man or men in their lives prior to this sudden transformation. Once they have made this change, they are constantly looking back to justify their new world view saying things like, "No wonder I rarely dated in high school."Having known these women since they were teens, I've told my daughter that I believe they were not born gay or somehow different. They choose to live their lives by taking the easiest path. It is easier for a woman to have a loving asexual relationship with another woman. It is generally harder for a woman to have an asexual relationship with a man. We have more common interests with people of our same sex. Her friends have taken this one step further and chosen same sex life partners. If there was the same stigma regarding gays today as there was 40 years ago, they would not be seeing themselves as gay because it would no longer be easier than working through their fears of men and finding a suitable husband. I know I'm not explaining myself very well but I believe it all has to do with the way society has changed recently. People are taking the path of least resistance doing what is easiest rather than what is right. This is turning gayness into the newest fad.
I agree with you. And also....the many multiple bad relationships and hurt have damaged men an women both, to the point that this is an "easy" step for them. God knew that multiple sexual relationships would bring disorder and cause too much hurt. Sigh.
Following what God wants is sometimes hard. Getting up early on Sunday morning and getting the kids dressed in the nice clothes and out the door in time for Sunday School is the least of it. Following what the devil wants is just easy, fun, self-gratifying. He's on a mission and always has been. He's had a few successes, like Sodom and Gomorrah. Sure, God destroyed those cities for their sins, but what does the devil care? It's not like he loves his converts after all. The devil's mission now is accelerating, and he's succeeding better than ever. Please yourself. Do it the easy way. You deserve your pleasure and the approval of those like you. Why kowtow to the old religious-based mores and morals? They're based in superstition.I agree with you, but we're pretty much fighing a loosing battle now. I believe we are sliding quickly into the end times and the lines are being drawn between those who will support the laws of Our Father, and those who will surrender the world to the malice of Satin. You know suffering little children is one of his favorite scenarios because it makes the rest of us suffer so.Gird your loins, the battle is enjoined. Blue
Wow. You know, we COULD just teach the kids that it's important to be kind to anyone who's not actively trying to hurt, kill, or rape you. Regardless of whether they're "different from you" or not. But I guess that lesson would hit too close to home for a lot of grown-ups...God I'm tired.
Even Alice Cooper saw this coming. ‘Hey teachers, we don't need no indoctrination. We don't need no thought control.’However, it turns out that the parents are the bricks in the wall. Yep, dumb as bricks.Montana Guy
Not Cooper, Pink Floyd.
Yep, Pink Floyd, from the album The Wall.
Please don't assume that all teachers and schools are like this. Most of my teaching career was in kindergarten, and none of the things you wrote about ever happened in my classroom. In fact, they still don't happen. This morning I had gym duty before school started, as I do every Monday. Our little rural school in Southern Illinois always begins with a whole-school assembly where everyone faces the American flag and says the pledge. I'm sure there are liberal schools teaching things that I don't want my grandkids taught, but please realize that this isn't the case with every school. We don't like it when others make generalizations about us as homesteaders/preppers. We shouldn't make generalizations about others. There are a few good guys and gals in public schools...even in liberal Illinois.
Prepared Grammy, HJL of Survival Blog had this profound reply to a teacher in a public school who was of the same mind:"My biggest concern (as a former public school teacher) is that any teacher who doesn’t recognize how the public school sets the stage to undermine parental authority and indoctrinate children doesn’t really understand the system they are part of. There are many who feel the system is benign and only taken advantage of by a few. They don’t seem to realize that we have now basically lost two generations of children, due to this system.The educational system that drives the teaching of teachers is biased towards public school and against homeschooling and private schools. These teachers don’t realize that they themselves are a product of this indoctrination from a system that readily accepts the anti-Biblical, anti-God, and anti-family indoctrination and “normalizes” everyone.Practically all social issues of the day can be directly traced to this undermining of the family, and the public school system plays a significant role in doing just this."Montana Guy
With the advent of Common Core, fewer and fewer teachers will be able to divert from the established curriculum. In truth 'public' schools are government schools and I don't trust that kind of 'village' with my kids. SuccotashRose
