The wicked are estranged from the womb; These who speak lies go astray from birth. - Psalms 58:3
Words are important. Just now, Google news is running this USAToday headline at the top of the page: "Russia's Vladimir Putin links gays to pedophiles."
Now there's a week's work for us. First, note the headline wasn't simply "Putin," "Vladimir Putin," "President Putin," or "Russian President Vladimir Putin links...," but "Russia's Vladmir Putin links...".
For comparison, think of this headline leading the page on NovostiMail.ru: "The United States' Barack Obama denies link of sodomites to child rape." In both cases, journalists would be making a point about the country, and not so much the man leading the country. To decadent American journalists, much as they despise him, the point isn't as much Putin as Russia. Benighted, backward, brutal, alcoholic bear. American journalists despised Solzhenitsyn and they despise Putin, too. To our chattering class, they're simply backward, ignorant Russians...
Second, note that it's not "sodomites" or "homosexuals." It's "gays." Cultured, sweet, kind, and tender "gays." Your younger brother who preferred the flute and hair coloring to team sports. The sensitive one in the family who loved to quote Oscar Wilde. That oppressed people group any man with a decent education who knows how to conduct himself in polite society calls "gays."
Third, what on earth is a pedophile? Is it anything similar to a pederast? You know, I think I don't want to know. Whatever it is, I can tell from the headline it's bad because American journalists are scorning Russia for having a president who links gays to whatever-it-is.
Since Christians should be able to discern our times, here goes.
'Pedophilia' is an English word constructed by combining the Greek words 'child' and 'love'. So, literally, pedophilia is "child-love."
But of course, we all know we're not here talking about the kind of love that causes a man to lay down his life to protect a child, nor a father tussling his son's hair, praying with him, tucking him into bed, and hugging and kissing him goodnight. Pedophilia has reference to an entirely different kind of love. Pedophilia is to love as abortion is to life. Pedophilia is sexual intercourse between an adult and a child.
But of course, no sexual intercourse between an adult and a child can ever be consensual. Adults are to protect children—not use them for their own sexual gratification. Every act of sexual intercourse between an adult and a child is violent. It's rape.
Pedophilia, then, is child-rape.
And make no mistake about it: for decadent American journalists to give it a clinical name that's unknown to the majority of Americans is one step closer to lowering the age of consent. Historically, sodomy has been a man-boy thing—almost never a man-man thing. Yet there has to be a certain order to the normalization of perversion. It's obvious it will be less difficult to get Christian Americans to swallow man-man sexual intercourse than man-boy sexual intercourse. In fact, the normal historical practice of sodomy between adult men and pubescent boys had to be kept a secret. If it had come out, the normalization of sodomy would have been harder and taken much longer.
So, have you noticed how our news organs, both secular and Christian, speak of "clergy sexual abuse" when they're reporting on sodomite Roman Catholic priests raping little boys? They don't call them "Roman Catholic priests." Usually, instead of calling them "priests," they call them "clergy."
Then too, never "homosexual." And almost never "gay." And never ever "sodomite."
Then too, not "rape." And never ever "homosexual rape" or "sodomite rape."
You've never seen a headline like this: "Roman Catholic archdiocese pays $50,000,000 to altar boys raped by homosexual priests."
Now let's look at the Google news headline again:
Russia's Vladimir Putin links gays to pedophiles.
This headline is a public morality play intended to shame Russia by lampooning the idiot they elected as president. But truth be told, Russian President Vladimir Putin is right. Sodomy has always been a relationship between "arsenakoitai" and "malakoi," as the Apostle Paul put it.1 Read ancient history and ask yourself whether you're more inclined to trust Andrew Sullivan and Sir Elton John, or Plato, concerning the normal sodomite relationship?
Here's what Wikipedia says under "Homosexuality in Ancient Greece":
The most common form of same-sex relationships between males in Greece was "paiderastia" meaning "boy love". It was a relationship between an older male and an adolescent youth. A boy was considered a "boy" until he was able to grow a full beard. In Athens the older man was called erastes, he was to educate, protect, love, and provide a role model for his eromenos, whose reward for him lay in his beauty, youth, and promise.
Where sodomy is normalized, pedophilia will follow. Gay rights activists have always been cheered on by their NAMBLA entourage.
Don't worry about sodomite marriage. It's a PR moment that will vanish in a heartbeat. Marriage is already dead in the heterosexual world of these United States, and homosexual marriage has already served its purpose. If you want to keep your eye on the ball, watch their divorce stats. They're going to be very revealing in a few years. (We've only had homosexual marriage for a very short time at this point.)
The future of sexual predation is youth. Just look at the fashionistas' ads that bombard us everywhere.
[This post was changed to remove an inaccurate statement that there are already stats demonstrating a high rate of divorce within homosexual marriages.]
