A retired public school teacher remarked to me how she has come to believe homosexuality among high school students is ‘normal’ “because there is so much of it“. This begs the question: What is normal?
One dictionary defines normal as an adjective: serving to establish a standard. As my business associate of many years has said, “The wonderful thing about standards is there are so many to choose from.”
For over 4,000 years homosexual acts have been anathema to People of the Book and later Muslims. (People of the Book, POB, is a Muslim reference to Jews and Christians.) Read Homosexuality and Tyranny: Bedfellows for over 4,000 years to catch up on the history of homosexuality. The universally accepted standard for wholesome families has been males bonding with females.
What changed the normal for the American family? It was a ruling by the Warren court in 1958 that undermined the original intent of the Eighth Amendment. Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote, “The [Eighth] Amendment must draw its meaning from the evolving standards of decency that mark the progress of a maturing society.”
Evolving standards of decency led the Canadian parliament to mandate homosexuality as the new normal in 2005, merely eleven years ago. Within two years of the so-called hate-crime law, Canadian courts ruled unlawful the criticism of homosexuality, a ruling that was a stake in the heart of the freedom of speech.

The term progressive in contemporary America should be understood for what it actually is. Progressives are actually digressive. I say this on the basis of the one immutable, unchanging standard of decency, the Holy Bible as summarized by the Ten Commandments. The Living God, Creator of the universe, El Shaddai is the immutable standard of decency and has been on record thousands of years, about five thousand years, as a matter of fact.
As corporations like Target, Kohls and Frito-Lay began to invite men into the restrooms, dressing rooms and showers formerly reserved for women and girls, our mayor Jim Pruitt proposed an ordinance to protect our women and girls. One sad note was a Rockwall mother, a teacher at a nearby university who proudly announced her ‘transgendered’ child, spoke against the ordinance. In her brief speech, she referred to her offspring as he, she, him and her. DMN story Rockwall mom seeks safe, loving world for transgender daughter. In my nearly seven decades of life I never once considered having a daughter with male genitalia.
American society accelerates a race toward a point of no return where the foundational principle of majority rule, the rule of law, traditional standards of decency go by the wayside as progressives push to normalize homosexuality. The contemporary Democrat Party embraces and embodies all that progressives stand for: mandatory official atheism, mandatory homosexuality, and socialism.
What’s the cure? Jesus Christ 2,000 years ago revealed that the cure for sin is the sacrifice of himself. As it is written, “But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.” He warned of a place reserved for those who reject him where the maggots never die and the fire never goes out.
Time is coming and is nigh upon us when our federal government will mandate homosexuality – aka sodomy, aka unnatural affections – upon all of our American society. Progressives, if successful, will effectively outlaw Christianity and nullify the Bill of Rights. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders agree on this agenda, as do ungodly leaders of the Democrat Party.
My suggestion: Turn from wickedness to the one True God in whose hands are the gifts of forgiveness and eternal life.
