Liberals Can't Condemn Some Sexual Perversions While Defending Others, But They Keep Doing It Anyway
Liberal progressivism is an ideology that, among other things, seeks to normalize evil and harmful behavior. For a while, the Left seemed content to just overlook such conduct. Now, they actively seek to elevate, encourage, promote and celebrate it. First came homosexuality and gay marriage, then transgenderism and polygamy. This was all quickly followed by allowing men with penises to use women’s public restrooms. It seems incest is next on the horizon. Yep, incest. (I guess beastiality won’t be far behind?) Sadly, I can’t say that I’m surprised at all by this. Once you accept a few forms of sexual perversion, granting them legal rights, privileges, classifications and such, you really have no choice but to accept everything else. Otherwise, someone might claim you’re discriminating, and we just can’t have that, now can we? That’s just how it works. After all, either everything is morally relative and open to redefining, or nothing is.
So, why am I even bringing this up?
The other day I came across a very disturbing story about a guy named Ben Ford. Apparently, he’s decided to leave his wife to pursue a romantic and sexual relationship with his mother, who gave him up for adoption over 30 years ago. No, this is not a Greek tragedy. This is real. It’s actually happening. According to The Mirror — a UK-based publication and alleged credible source — and The New Day, Kim West, 52, was reunited with her son when Ben, 32 and living in the U.S., sent her an “out of the blue” letter back in 2013. Eventually, they began exchanging phone calls and agreed to meet. Kim, who was working as an interior designer at the time, said she felt like they had “known each other for years” and that she found herself having “sexy dreams” about Ben. The two even want to have children. (Excuse me while I go vomit into my toilet.) Of course, neither Ben nor Kim believe they’re relationship qualifies as being incestuous. No, instead they’ve decided that it’s actually something called ‘Genetic Sexual Attraction’ — a term used to describe sexual attraction between close relatives who meet as adults. (Um, gross.) Unsurprisingly, their story went viral and has prompted all sorts of reaction from the media and even the public, most of which has been negative. A couple examples:
First, let me reiterate that modern liberal progressivism is utterly devoid of any morality, integrity, virtue or even coherence and consistency. We’ve seen this proven true time and time again. Take abortion, for example. If pro-abortion liberals argue that human babies are not worthy of any sort of basic legal protection or rights in the moments leading up to and including conception (and they do), then there is nothing beautiful or sacred about human life at all. And if we follow this sort of logic through to its inevitable conclusions, then there’s nothing sacred about handicapped people, elderly people, terminally ill people and so on. By these standards, any helpless human being of any age and condition might as well be eligible for termination.
Similarly, if something like marriage and sex between a man and woman is no longer sacred, unique and special (and, as far as liberals are concerned, it isn’t), then any perversion or distortion of marriage and sex is perfectly acceptable — like homosexuality and apparently incest. Transgenderism even takes it a step further and says there’s nothing special or sacred about your own sexual identity. If you were born a man, but “feel” like a woman, then you should become a woman. (Which is actually impossible, but that’s another argument for another blog post.) You see, leftists really have no choice but to defend Ben and Kim because they can’t condemn one sexual perversion while simultaneously defending the others, particularly when you consider that incest actually has a longer history and is even more widely accepted than LGBTQ lifestyles. Moreover, in their refusal to condemn such behavior, liberals take it a step further and demand that folks — especially Christians — exhibit sympathy and non-judgmentalism. They command us all to just “understand” the perverted, sinful behavior. Think about the overwhelming gravity of that sort of command: A mother and her biological son are engaging in sexual activity and plan to procreate and we’re all supposed to just sit back, shut up and accept it as being “normal” and “ok.” It’s utterly terrifying that it’s come to this.
Many people often say that American society is teetering on a slippery slope. I disagree. We’ve already slid down the slope. We’ve plunged headfirst — willingly and intentionally, mind you — into unhinged moral anarchy and spiritual chaos. We’ve rejected God, absolute truth and basic principles of rightness and goodness. And this is where it leads. The inevitable cultural acceptance of incest should really come as no surprise to anyone. It was only a matter of time. You see, it’s just a simple three-step process.
That’s all it takes. And before you know it, our culture is sliding further and further into the putrid cesspool of progressivism, normalizing disgusting, sinful, reprehensible behavior, eliciting all the harmful consequences thereof. (You know, like men walking into women’s restrooms to rape young girls because it’s perfectly legal for them to be there. Or a 53-year-old man deciding he wants to be a six-year old girl.)
The truth is, Ben and Kim don’t need applause and acceptance. They need help. They need spiritual and psychological counseling. And they need it now, before it’s too late.
