The opening credits to the Ben Casey TV series (1961-1966) were the only opening credits that my friends and I noticed and talked about. We were tweener Yeshiva students, enthusiastically devouring the fruits of popular culture even as were were steeped in Torah. We didn’t analyze our response to the Ben Casey credits. Our reaction was visceral. But the lifecycle so elegantly laid out on a classroom chalk board carried a powerful message that was simple but not simplistic. We understood that man, woman, birth, death, infinity, reflected the truth of the world.
The Ben Casey credits would never make it to network or cable TV now. It would be labeled hate speech.
Indeed, we have come to a point in American culture where the Democrat party self-righteously propagandizes against normative behavior in favor of tragic sexual deviancies.
The Obama administrationhas announced that all public schools in America must let children choose their bathroom and locker room based upon a child’s feelings about his or her gender on any given day.
The guidance from leaders at the departments of Education and Justice says public schools are obligated to treat transgender students in a way that matches their gender identity, even if their education records or identity documents indicate a different sex.
“There is no room in our schools for discrimination of any kind, including discrimination against transgender students on the basis of their sex,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in a statement accompanying the directive, which is being sent to school districts Friday.
Congress has already allotted funds to the Department of Education, thus there’s nothing Congress can do to stop this inversion of reality.
It is not enough for the postmodern Democrat elite to acquire power and wealth, they also wish to appear virtuous. The moral preening of Obama and his administration are on constant display, like the swollen sexual organs of animals in heat. They are religious fanatics who never tire of letting us know that they are more moral than, well, anybody who does not conform to their oppressive ideology.
The ObamaToilet is a direct result of the left’s redefinition of marriage. If marriage can be redefined for the first time in human history then the next logical step is to redefine sexuality. No longer do we hear the meme that they (gays, trans, whatevers) are “born this way.” The new battle cry is that “gender is fluid,” sexuality a social construct which the individual is free to reinterpret.
What’s so bizarre about the ObamaToilet is the left is in the process of denying basic science, biology 101, not to mention common sense. The life-cycle of the Ben Casey credits is besmirched in favor of the delusional whimsies of a tiny percentage of the population. As a wise reader commented at Seraphic Secret in this blog post, homosexuals cannot reproduce therefore they must convert (preferably impressionable children) to add to their numbers. The left, always anxious to balkanize America and gain a wider constituency, will do whatever it takes to gain and hold the reins of power. By placing sexuality under the iron fist of the state, Democrats steal children from their parents.
In fact, Democrats are now sexually abusing children as a matter of policy and in the name of compassion.
Are parents really going to be okay when sexually confused teachers share bathrooms, showers, and changing rooms with their students, children of the opposite sex? Because that is inevitable. And let’s agree that if this lunacy continues we are looking at the demise of male and female sports teams. The gruesome East German model will become widespread. and undermine the meritocracy of sports.
To justify radical shifts of law the left always brings up the civil rights movement. If I were black I would be deeply insulted by this comparison. Those who sacrificed and died as martyrs for the cause of civil rights in America are being diminished by the cynical manipulators of the Democrat party — the party of slavery, Jim Crow, and the KKK. What used to be clinical evidence of mental illness has now become a new civil right — although it is still evidence of mental illness.
The redefinition of marriage was a flanking assault on religious liberty and small business. The left is never content unless everyone is bullied into acting in a uniform fashion. If a baker or photographer does not wish to take part in a gay marriage ceremony, that business must be destroyed. So too with ObamaToilets. The lawsuits against those who do not comply are going to be merciless.
The arguments about criminal activity are obvious, but to my mind, secondary. Most people are against ObamaToilets because they legitimize deviancy, penalize normative behavior, and undermine the rights of privacy that Americans once took for granted.
And when some oh-so-clever intellectual challenges you to define normal, explain that non-normative is any lifestyle that, if practiced by a majority of people, would lead to the decline and fall of Judeo Christian civilization.
Ultimately, ObamaToilets are another way to undermine the nuclear family through the power of the state. Judeo Christian values hold that a moral society is created by citizens who exercise free will rather than the state imposing its punitive will.
Here is the question we are left to ponder? Are Americans going to kneel like slaves in the face of politically ambitious fanatics who wish to replace the nuclear family with a tyrannical government that legislates everything from the size of soda cups to the wishing away of sexual organs? If the answer is yes, then the American Republic is over.
