social network for conservatives
An Op-Ed By Heather™
Sometimes people on our side of the aisle jump in to defend people simply on the basis of a simple but profound statement without fact searching and in depth analysis
I am one of the few conservatives that will not jump on the "support Carrie Prejean bandwagon". I personally see her excuses as lame and a laissez faire attitude toward her semi nude nude photos. How can you justify being a good Christian with posing in various states of nudity, as a catholic who attended catholic school and college the perfect model was the Blessed Virgin Mary the perfect example of modesty something Ms. Prejean has failed at as a Christian and that Sean Hannity should realize as a Catholic before he bangs the drums in support of her! People have erroneously stated she's being persecuted for her stand on Christianity which is the wrong or incorrect view. I have issues with her based on hypocrisy and combining her Christianity with nudity, her defense is oh well I am a model and this is what models do, and conservatives simply allow her to get away with that....well not me.
Suppose we have Penthouse Pets or Playboy playmates that say well I think marriage is between one man and one woman yet pose in sexually explicit photos do we Christian Conservatives sacrifice all our Christian values and blindly support them? Well my personal opinion is that Ms. Prejean is simply using Christianity as a tool to advance her career. She claims that her various states of nudity photos were published without her consent...Oh really Ms. Prejean and I suppose you did not have the common sense to realize that they would be published without your consent?Ms. Prejean did you know that by posing nude you are causing others to sin...as a Christian you should know that.
There is a more important part of this that I want to discussThat being that alot of libertarian style conservatives would like to poo poo this by saying oh whats the big deal its nothing but cheesecake poses....that is not the point its what the picture implies not just what is actually revealed and the fact is...its soft core porn. Having prefaced that, there is a definate link to softcore porn to serial murderers, it starts out with soft core porn progresses to hardcore and violent porn. The fact is that soft core porn is like marijuana in the context that it leads to harder drugs and softcore porn leads to hardcore and violent porn.
I have posted this in an earlier op-ed but will do so again as I as a Christian and mom of a daughter I cherish and love dearly...
Too manny people are being propagandized into thinking pornography is glamorous and good, nothing can be farther from the truth! There is a definite relationship of serial killers and porn. cases involving serial homicide and rape, an obsessive addiction to pornography has been associated with the aberrant personality of the killers. It is shocking, therefore, that pornographic magazines, movies, books and seminars are widely available on college campuses throughout the country.
Dr. Victor Kline of the University of Utah described several stages observed in the addiction process. Kline noted that pornography can be proven to be psychologically addictive with the subject craving harder and harder forms in order to gratify the obsession.
The first stage usually involves the “soft-core” magazines such as Playboy and Penthouse. A second stage involves the addiction becoming more severe with the subject craving harder and more “bizarre” material. Third, a stage of addiction to “weird” porn evolves in which the addict views pictures of children, sexual acts involving animals and violent sex. A fourth stage of acting out the fantasies, including the extreme forms violent behavior, is the final result of the addiction.
A study conducted by Dolf Zillman the University of Indiana and Jennings Bryant of the University of Houston in 1984, found evidence that shows that exposure to non-violent porn can lead to an interest in violent pornography.
One of the many teriffic things That my hero Ronald Reagan tried to do was appoint the Meese Commission on Pornography. Attorney General Edwin Meese concluded that there is a causal relationship between hard core pornography and serial homicide. The personal testimonies of the convicted murderers Gary Bishop and Ted Bundy have also confirmed this association. Utah State Prison inmate Gary Bishop, convicted of five known deaths of young boys, ages 5-13, gave this testimony: “I am a homosexual pedophile convicted of murder. Pornography was a determining factor in my downfall … For me, pornography was like lighting a fuse on a stick of dynamite. I became stimulated and had to gratify my urges or explode.”
In an interview with the nationally syndicated radio program, Focus on the Family, convicted serial killer Ted Bundy told Dr. James Dobson a similar story: “This is the message I want to get across – that as a young boy … certainly I encountered in the local grocery store, in the local drug store, the porn that people call ‘soft core." As he grew older, Ted Bundy said his obsession drove him to mutilate and murder young women for sexual gratification. “In the beginning it fuels this kind of thought process. Then, at a certain time, it is instrumental, I would say crystallizing, making it into something that is almost like a separate entity inside, a building up of this destructive energy. You keep craving harder porn.”
Dr Dobson served on the Meese Commission on Pornography the findings of the commission and all the FBI statistical data all confirm that there is a definite link between pornography and serial killers so I hope that all the poeople that say oh it is no big deal that Carrie Prejean posed nude because she believes in traditional marriage and use her as a poster child for Christianity Sean, Laura, Fox News etc.
We need to act now and do what is moral and decent in the eyes of our Judeo Christian God and His Only Begotten Son Our Lord God And Savior Jesus Christ and for the sake of our Children.... Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam [For The Greater Glory of God] My time is up and I sincerely thank you for yours, May God Bless You and Family and God Bless America. Sincerely,
Well, if Prejean was straddling the fence before, I think she's seen the need to pick a side. She's still just a kid, really, and she's become an object in a culture war. This isn't really about Prejean. It's about not having the right to dissent without extreme castigation, it's about a lack of restraint and decorum in social institutions, it's about an erosion of morals and how you are to hold your tongue as you are dragged back into Sodom and Gomorrah, it's about how the line of acceptability has so moved in our culture and society, and it's about the responsibility of those that run the pageant. There are so many bigger issues here but they have been completely dumbed down to a blonde expressing her opinion and a hateful little gay guy who's entire career is based on sniggering gossip and how he was allowed to ask an inapproriate question and that he and a handful of other perverse people get to decide what is hateful and what is not. This is about freedom of speech and the erosion of God in our culture. There are such bigger issues here--it was just that Prejean was in the right place at the right time, an imperfect object on which to cast an example on what is happening before our eyes in our society.
God help us if we get our eyes off the bigger picture. The rest if just background noise to keep us occupied while the entire world is being shifted under our feet. I'm sorry--I am not much of a writer and I know my ideas are all over the map.
