PART III – STEALING THE CULTURE
The Movement that changed America – and the world – was no accident. It was not the result of naturally occurring organic, grass-roots change. It was plotted and planned and the plan was executed. And in that execution the old America died!
What is perhaps most interesting about the current “gaying” of the culture, is that the phenomena to a great degree has been engineered by forces that have set out to change the culture. Today’s cultural norms, are largely the product of an artificial manipulation by the Gay Lobby and their allies in the mainstream media. If we look at this from a ‘Last Days’ perspective, it is totally in line with what we may prophetically expect. In Luke 17:26 & 28, Jesus warns that the days just preceding His return will be like “the days of Noah” and “the days of Lot.” Genesis tells us that these were times of rampant paganism, sexual perversion and sin. We know from prophecy that during the Tribulation, a pagan / occult World Government will be set up under the auspices of the Antichrist, replete with the antichristian pagan / occult values that one would expect. But God, I believe, was being even more specific. The Babylonian Talmud is a book wherein the ancient Jewish rabbis interpreted the Scripture, – fleshed it out, if you will. According to the Talmud; – which to Jews is an authoritative source, – the Days of Noah were the only time in history, – other than our own, – when men were given to men in marriage. It was the only other time in history when ‘gay marriage’ was sanctioned by the culture. And this is the time we live in today, – as in “the days of Noah!”[i]
Now, sex, lust and perversion are actually values listed in the Satanic Bible. Even today we are seeing an explosion of these values in the mainstream culture, evidenced by MTV, Gangsta-rap, internet pornography, Victoria’s Secret fashion shows etc. We have to understand that there is a direct relationship between all forms of this new mysticism that demands nothing and tolerates all: Eastern Mysticism, Hinduism, Satan Worship, Wicca and the New Age. At root they all deny the authority of the One True God, finding their origins and parallels in the religion of ancient Babylon. Those pagan religions sexualized their gods, who legend has it, engaged in all sorts of sexual conduct. They were rife with temple prostitutes and homosexual cultic practices. This was at its root, sex-driven worship.
Then came the revolution of God’s Mosaic Law. In the words of Dennis Prager, “When Judaism demanded that all sexual activity be channeled into marriage it changed the world. The Torah’s prohibition of non-marital sex made Western civilization possible.” [ii] In Biblical society: Sex no longer dominated the culture. History has shown that societies that let their lusts run rampant create the conditions for their own destruction. Prager called it, “…forcing the sexual genie back into the bottle”. But that genie is back out again. Sex is everywhere! There is a Museum of Sex on Fifth Avenue in New York City, and institutions of higher learning teach courses on pornography, or lesbian studies or bring in pimps, prostitutes and porn stars to talk about careers as sex workers.
One key element of that sexual revolution is the Gay Revolution. It is no accident that the cultural and moral landscape of the West has changed so much in the last half-century. It was both predicted and planned. But it is interesting that the event that gave birth to the orchestrated plotting of the Gay Rights Movement began as a spontaneous reaction to an event. In 1969 the Stonewall Inn was a Greenwich Village haven for what we would today call the LGBT crowd. It was a saloon, owned by the mafia, operated without a liquor license – and it remained open because of payments to the police. Despite that, the raided the establishment on June 28th of that year. They rounded up the patrons inside and took them out on the sidewalk in front of the building to await transportation. A crowd gathered to watch. The police were handling some of the patrons roughly. History.com reports what followed. “One woman in handcuffs was hit over the head by an officer. She pleaded with the crowd to ‘do something.’ They responded by throwing pennies and other objects at the police. As the crowd reached hundreds, a full-blown riot ensured. Ten police officers barricaded themselves inside the Stonewall. The crowd set fire to the barricade.” The Fire Department and Tactical Police units were called in. But demonstrations went on for six days….and the movement was born. By late June of 1970 the Gay Pride movement had organized and emerged. Pride Parades were held in San Francisco, Chicago and New York. The official chant of the movement became: “Say it loud, Gay is proud.”[iii] But from those modest beginnings the movement took on a momentum that has served it well in overturning the sexual / moral mores of a nation. According to Dr. Charles Socarides, a professor of psychiatry and therapist treating homosexuals who want to change, “…the revolution did not just happen. It has been orchestrated by a small band of very bright men and women – most of them gays and lesbians – in a cultural campaign”.[iv] One Gay publication promoted a plan “to make the whole world gay”. Back in 1982, Dennis Altman, in his book The Homosexualization of America, citing the “swinging singles” phenomenon, celebrated the fact that straight Americans were thinking and acting like gays, with their large “numbers of short-lived sexual adventures.” So the Gay Lobby was born, and in the words of Socarides, they set out to “normalize the abnormal.”
The first step in their purposeful reinvention was to target the American Psychological Association to get them to change the description of homosexuality from a disorder to a neutral term condition. This they accomplished in 1973, when homosexuality was removed from the APA’s list of mental disorders. The Gay community was moving toward equality. In the words of David Kupelian, author of The Marketing of Evil, just as they were making progress convincing “…the mainstream that homosexuals represented a normal, healthy, alternative lifestyle, along” came AIDS. But even that name “AIDS” came about as the result of a surrender to political pressure to a newly minted Gay Lobby. The original name of GRID (gay related immune deficiency disease) was seen as a moral handicap by the ‘gay rights lobby’. So GRID gave way to the more generic AIDS.[v] Kupelian points out that with the media forced to focus on “the sometimes bizarre sexual acts” engaged in with “often astronomically high numbers of sexual partners”, the new disease became a public relations disaster for the Gay movement. Then in 1988, Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen, came to the rescue with a public relations plan to turn the tide. Growing out of ideas formed at a conference of leading activists, the two wrote a book entitled, After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90’s. It was a plan of action, a call to arms.
First, they worked under the premise that they could use AIDS to “maximize the sympathy and minimize the fear” of the mainstream culture. The book was aimed at selling “gay rights” to straight America”[vi] They came up with a three point plan, rooted as much in the brainwashing techniques of Communist China as in the manipulations of Madison Avenue. The processes they would use they described as: 1) Desensitization, 2) Jamming, 3) Conversion. Desensitization was a process to use the media to flood the market with inoffensive gay advertisements until “…the issue becomes thoroughly tiresome”. Kirk and Madsen were out to convince the public that they were like everyone else; in their words, – to “…lull straights into an attitude of indifference”.[vii] Jamming has been described as “psychological terrorism” used to suppress dissent. They used that technique against Dr. Laura and in the case of Matthew Shepherd. His murder, at first believed to be a hate crime, was later found to be motivated primarily by money. But this fact was largely ignored by the mainstream media, as was the case of Jesse Dirkhising, a youth murdered by two homosexuals in Tennessee, not long afterward. The Gay lobby had succeeded in turning the mainstream media, into being willing accomplices and allies in promoting their agenda. “We mean a conversion of the average American’s emotions, mind and will”, they wrote.[viii] “It makes no difference that the ads are lies…”, so long as they were being used “to ethically good effect”. They used shame and accusations of bigotry against anyone that opposed their agenda. The word “homophobe” became part of the lexicon. Theirs was a “planned psychological attack in the form of propaganda fed to the nation via the media”. They enlisted Hollywood in their process. This is how they achieved conversion.[ix]
Over the past couple of decades, the homosexual lobby has largely succeeded, as witnessed by the great inroads they have made in the media, corporate America and the legal sphere. Time Magazine runs an article on Gay Teens, written by a homosexual and colored by that point of view. Gay characters and shows populate network TV and Hollywood movies. In business, companies adapt ‘domestic partner benefits’ and often punish workers with opposing, traditional views, based in religious belief. Civil Unions and gay bishops and priests dominate news cycles. And much of the public has gone along, – especially among the young. After all, it is only fair. The plan to steal American culture has been a smashing success, with the popularity and awards accorded gay oriented entertainment, perhaps signaling its apex. As the AP’s entertainment writer David Germain declared, “It was a triumphant night for films dealing with homosexuality and transsexuality.” In 2005, Brokeback Mountain, a film revolving around the family-destroying, homosexual affair of two cowboys from the 1960’s, led the way with 4 awards, including Best Picture. Other gay-themed winners included, Transamerica, the story of a man preparing for a sex-change operation, and Capote, a biography of the famously-homosexual author.[x] With the younger demographic becoming increasingly ‘tolerant’ of any behavior, – regardless of consequences, the transformation of America was nearly complete.
The history of what followed is illuminating in the light of the development of the intolerant and angry Left operating today. As the struggle went on and some Americans began pushing back, the gay community reacted with what can be described as an angry sense of entitlement to any group or result that threatens to interfere with their march of progress toward the total fulfillment of their agenda. That’s why those pushing this pro-homosexual agenda crowd was surprised and miffed when California’s proposition 8 passed, banning gay marriage in the state. By 2009 the ebb and flow of the struggle to legalize same-sex marriage was encountering resistance. At that point in America, a clear majority of Americans opposed the notion. It took court decisions to open a door that Americans of that day wanted closed. Gay rights groups across the country sprang into action, trying to secure for themselves, “…the rights we deserve as American citizens.” Immediately lawsuits were filed to have the California Supreme Court overturn the will of the people as expressed in the electoral process. The passage had put into limbo the status of about 18,000 same sex couples that “married” after that court usurped an earlier vote by California voters protecting marriage and allowed the practice the previous June. Rallies and protests were staged across the country. Thousands hit the streets in New York and Los Angeles and even Fargo, ND among other cities to protest America’s institutionalized homophobia. They chanted and waved rainbow flags and wore pink buttons. The AP coverage of the events claimed that “The protests were widely reported to be peaceful”.[xi] [xii] But they were wrong.
One place where things got more than a little ugly was in Palm Springs, California where hundreds of pro-homosexual protesters gathered to express their anger at the electoral result. So along came a 69 year old grandmother carrying a cross and telling the protesters of God’s love and her love for them. It was all caught on the local news. She was confronted by an angry mob of men, who immediately; – surrounded her, got in her face and began shouting at her venomously, using obscenities and telling her to go home. Then one of the men grabbed the cross she was carrying and began to stomp and dance on it. Later as she was being interviewed by a female reporter, she was accosted again. While shoving signs in front of her face and the camera, the protesters shouted her down effectively preventing the interview from taking place. Incredibly, when the coverage resumed from the anchor desk of KPSP, Palm Springs, – one reporter opined that clearly there was a lot of anger out there…on both sides. The reaction was surreal. It was an incredible display of a flight from reality, – and of the cultural victory that the movement was achieving.[xiii]
The most egregious offense took place however at Mount Hope Church in Lansing, Michigan. It was there that a radical pro-homosexual group calling themselves Bash Back, planned and executed an assault / protest. First they infiltrated the congregation, spreading out in small groups throughout the sanctuary. As services started they staged a protest outside the church proper, which had the effect of drawing the attention of the church’s security force. Then right after prayer, the group members began to stand up and cause disruptions. Some began throwing condoms and propaganda around the sanctuary. Another group hung a profane banner from the balcony. Some shouted profanities and the cry, “Jesus was gay.” Two lesbians pushed their way through the crowd to the pulpit and began making out. [Because that’s how civilized people act in a church!][xiv]
Then there was the incredible experience of a group of Christians that went down to a San Francisco neighborhood called the Castro District to pray in the days following the election. The group had been coming for several nights and everything had been peaceful, with some people coming down to join them in prayer. Then one night, they were surrounded by a group of angry men yelling profanities and telling them to go home. Word spread and the mob grew to about 500, pouring out of the surrounding bars. The leader of the prayer group told the crowd that was accosting them, “We’re here to worship God, and we’re here because we love you.” The Christians began singing Amazing Grace and the mob answered with We Shall Overcome. The homosexuals rushed the Christians and threw a large cloth over them. Hot coffee was poured on them. One girl was pushed to the ground and kicked, another man was beaten with a Bible. The mob was blowing high pitched whistles in their ears. Finally police came and escorted them out the neighborhood with the mob following and taunting them.[xv] [xvi] To homosexuality: Prayer equals cultural war that must be opposed at all costs. [Today we are seeing this type of behavior spread to the entire Leftist movement.]
