The Gathering Darkness

Adam Piggott calls the above photo “the end game of homosexuality.”

It shows an 11-year-old boy earlier this month performing in drag at a Brooklyn gay bar where adult men threw money at the child. Let us consult this young celebrity’s official online biography:

Desmond [Napoles] was born in June 2007, during NYC Pride Week, at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Manhattan. As he tells it, this means that he “is a member of the Village People by default”. He has also claimed that he “came out of the closet when he was born”. . . .
Desmond’s parents allowed him to inherently progress, explore, and choose his tastes in clothing, toys, and activities on his own. He had developed his gender identity as non-conforming, or gender fluid, as a young child. . . .
His mother likens her support of Desmond’s interests and activities as being similar to that of a mother who supports her son’s interest in sports. Both scenarios are unconditional acts of love for their children and recognition of their child as an individual.

To quote the Church Lady: “Isn’t that special?”

 

If you wish to know how we got here, go back to the 2003 Supreme Court decision in Lawrence v. Texas, which declared state laws against sodomy to be unconstitutional. In his dissent, Justice Antonin Scalia four times called attention to the majority’s invocation of an “emerging awarness” of sexual liberty as the basis for its ruling. Well, who could predict where this Emerging Awareness Doctrine might lead?

In 2011, Matt Barber described a trend toward “Sexual Anarchy” with activists seeking to normalize pedophila. And the “end game” of this trend, as Adam Piggott observes, is a logical extension of the claim that homosexuals are “born that way.” If it is true that some children are genetically programmed to be homosexual or transgender, why shouldn’t parents emulate Desmond’s mother and support their “interests and activities” in a spirit of “unconditional love”?

As Jack at Sigma Frame says, this results in a defiled condition. Because Jack seeks to make a specifically Christian contribution to the “manosphere,” I will share this: Recently I found myself talking to a minister of the gospel and expressed my concern about the inroads that corruption have made in the church, with activists demanding the ordination of women and acceptance of homosexuality. The minister replied that, as we approach the End Times, no denomination will be able to withstand this diabolic trend. There will be no “safe” (i.e., orthodox or conservative) Christian institutions, but only scattered individual Christians who still cling to the old rugged cross. And I’m reminded of the long-ago words of R.L. Dabney:

“The fantastical project of yesterday, which was mentioned only to be ridiculed, is to-day the audacious reform, and will be tomorrow the accomplished fact.”

Dabney was a Presbyterian theologian who served as Stonewall Jackson’s chief of staff, and I suppose it’s “hate speech” to quote him, but isn’t every expression of common sense “hate speech” now?

UPDATE: NeoWayland in the comments recommends Lauren Chen’s take:

 

It’s “hate speech”! How dare you disapprove?
