Does Biology Have Meaning Anymore?

These are the days of equality. Or so we are told ad nauseam – high, low, left and right! Right? Times when women are no different than men and men are no different than women and we can be anything, at any time. That’s what feminism, genderism and multiculturalism claim they want: to be respected and liberated; to be free to be oneself regardless of “differences,” right? You need look no further than all of our government subsidized institutions of higher learning to find the “motherload” source, the brightest and best-paid “sociologists” and “think tank” revolutionaries serving it up to the youth of our nation and it is not hard to see the results. Of course we can look elsewhere and find “pushers,” but the supporting cast is almost anywhere you look.

In fact, today, you can claim to be whatever “sex” or “neutral sex” you wish to be based solely on your feelings today and change your gender tomorrow based on how you feel then.

Surely you are up on the new way of thinking. The new Political Correctness! The new “rights” being pushed throughout the world claim to “liberate” people from the rigidity of “old-world ways.” They are plastered as headline “news.” Respect is mandated in obligatory “gender study” courses in government subsidized schools. It’s the “new norm.” And you better comply!

After all, “peoplekind” can’t be allowed to remain constrained by old traditional values and norms. “Freedom” demands a much broader vision of the world and nature as a whole. We cannot control our biological predispositions for which we are not responsible but must claim our freedom to be what we feel we are, not what we appear to be.

Songs like, “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” are too old fashioned and offensive now, especially to those biological homosapiens born with wombs. Can’t call them girls anymore! Not PC!

Besides, isn’t it great that now, if “Men Just Want to Have Fun” too, we can? Nope! That would also not be PC.

If God made Lesbians (gay females), Gay “males,” Bisexuals, Trans genders, Queers, Asexuals, Nonsexuals, Multisexuals, Metrosexuals, Nongendered and a host of “other” sexes, then didn’t He (oops, It) also make perverts, pedophiles, polygamists and predators? Why are they being prejudged? Aren’t they as entitled to the same respect to their feelings to be what they feel they “are?” These same acolytes just love “diversity” and “multiculturalism,” right? If it is their Holy Grail, then shouldn’t antidiscrimination laws also apply equally to Aliens, Minorities, Majorities, Immigrants, Natives, Illegals, Cultured, Uncultured, Intelligent, Unintelligent, Informed, Uninformed, the criminal and the violent religious zealots alike? Aren’t they all due their same feelings and fully equal respect?

If today I felt like God made me an uncultured, bisexual, polygamist black religious zealot pedophile nudist, then why am I not accepted as an equal in a liberated society when government is protecting everyone else’s “diversity” and “multiculturalism?”

Multiculturalism imposes divisions and segregates each into their own “special interest” group, so they can exclaim they are the victim of a “society, full of unaccepting bigoted, sexist racists!” A claim hurled at anyone who would just rather not associate or have anything to do with them. Forced acceptance is their demand and government is their sword. Collectivism is their chariot. And you better smile and be happy about it or else you will lose your promotion or your job, be expelled from school, be featured in your local media as a nonconformist heretic and probably be unwelcome at most church or civic organizations.

Can you say: The tyranny of the minority? If, by my choice today, I am now in the minority, then why can’t I too be a tyrant? Why should I be made to suffer recriminations for who I choose to feel like today?

Don’t you see God working through this uber liberating “movement”?

Freedom of Choice! Its Roots and Relevance

April 17, 2012

One Man’s Opinion

By:  Gary Hardee
Date:  4/17/2012

On a purely personal level, the evidence that a Supreme Being, Divine Providence, God or whatever one chooses to call it, is hard to miss.

As for me, God makes the most sense. A God that promotes love over hate, choice over force, forgiveness over persecution, truth over lies, principles over situation ethics, personal responsibility over blaming others, laws over do what “feels” right, discipline over aimlessness, order over chaos and justice over wanton violence and suffering,  is consistent with Divine Providence and all major religious schools of thought. A “god” that promotes the later in each case is not a god that is worthy of emulation or following.

Is it wrong to embrace freely all the better values listed above? Put another way, would a wise man seek to embrace and practice such good values on his own?  Criminals surely do not obey or embrace all, some or any of them.  Criminal minds opt for the later in some cases. Twisting these concepts to “fit” their decisions, the criminal justifies their actions even if acted out in the spur of the moment.

A free person must have choice. If his ability to choose is denied – is he truly free? So where does a free man’s choice end? Can he choose to do anything he wants at any time he wants with anyone or anything he wants if no one is forced involuntarily to take part or have their natural rights affected? The basic answer is yes! Now you might disagree, but that’s your choice as well. I seek not to force my views upon anyone but “choose” to use the power of persuasion. Some fundamentalists feel they are justified to use force to impose their “standards” on others; denying others both their choices and the accompanying “price” they naturally “pay” for their choices. This attitude tends to spring from a more “group” or “collectivist” view that should a majority say it should be law (force) then it is a moral law. I totally reject this view!

The funny thing about God is that “force” has NEVER been his weapon. He seeks not to “control” us but to teach us lessons by allowing us to suffer from our bad choices while we prosper and become happier with our good ones.

All religions aside, I believe the “Ten Commandments” were not given to deny us choice but to strongly suggests for us what is good to voluntarily embrace. Perhaps it is a view into the “mind of God” if you will.  For He surely knew mankind needed something to be “brought to their senses”. No better guidance than these exist for man to follow. But will mankind follow each one if they are “legislated” by government and become punishable under “law”? Not a chance! Many are and still yet “violations” occur every second of every day. Take American football or golfing for others – on Sunday. “No other Gods before me…”, “Remember the Sabbath and keep it Holy”.  What about the crass commercialization of Jesus’ birthday celebrated as Christmas or even the “Easter Bunny” and hunting eggs when celebrating Jesus’ resurrection? Appropriate? Again, it’s your choice but don’t think it doesn’t come without its subtle, “unintended” consequences.

Violations and perversions of these “Ten” existed before being “published”. And no matter the laws have been passed, they continue today. God’s judgment is immediate in some cases and delayed in others. The results are visible and private, often far-reaching yet in most instances very personal. But it is clear to me that all societies, to the extent their members choose to violate them, experience His judgment as their societies become more corrupt, unprincipled, lawless, unloving, irresponsible, undisciplined, restrictive and regimented and unforgiving.

Virtually every evil that a society suffers can be traced back to one or more violations of these “Ten”.  It is universally accepted that no man is perfect and that indeed “ALL have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God!” In the marketplace of virtues, the least purchased item may well be “Humility”.
