[COMMENT: Here is some valuable history of the homosexual movement, which seems to have gotten is big push in Nazi Germany, some claiming that Ernst Rohm was the founder of Nazism. Linda Kimball does not have an exactly accurate description of Christianity, but that is not her main point. E. Fox]

By its nature, Christianity is both a patriarchal and
hierarchal religious and philosophical worldview. Since it teaches that mankind
is ‘fallen’ (has a sinful nature which is the source of evil) it requires as a
consequence, that moral constraints (social taboos) be placed on man’s
sin-nature to encourage him not to act upon sinful urges, which always
eventually lead to suffering and evil. The seven great sins are: pride
(self-love), envy, wrath, gluttony, lust, sloth, and greed--the source of all
manmade social ills and suffering. Moral constraint builds self-discipline. A
society in which self-discipline is viewed as a virtue is a society that has
high social standards, among which is honesty, reliability, fidelity, loyalty,
trustworthiness, efficiency, etc. This is a dynamic, productive society that
values achievement and good work ethics.
While all men are sinners, the majority of mankind can and will, accept moral constraints. However, into every generation are born some who absolutely will not. Even as children, these Cain-like individuals will be rebellious, contemptuous, spiteful, and hateful towards authority and moral constraints, which they’ll view as impositions upon their absolute sovereignty. As adults, they’ll see it as their mission in life to subvert and tear down all moral restraints and institutions that stand between themselves and their insatiable egos and base appetites. The working principle of this sort of person is: “I am, therefore I am entitled.”
After the collapse of the Roman Empire in 476 AD, Christianity grew and spread rapidly across Western Europe and into Eastern Europe. Western Europe eventually became known as Christendom.
In 1700, a group of Christendom Cain’s calling themselves “freethinkers” had begun agitating against God, the Christian church, and moral constraints. In 1708, Jonathan Swift, famous for his acerbic satire, skewered freethinkers and the ‘social advantages’ they saw in the abolition of Christianity: “I appeal to the…polite freethinker, whether in the pursuit of gratifying…passion, he hath not always felt a wonderful incitement by reflecting it was a thing forbidden…It is…proposed as a great advantage to the public that if we…discard…the Gospel, all religion will be banished forever, and consequently those grievous prejudices of education, which under the names of virtue, conscience, honour, justice, and the like…so apt to disturb the peace of human minds (and) so hard to be eradicated by right reason or freethinking, sometimes during the whole course of our lives.” Christianity is hateful because by “laying restraints on human nature (it is) the great enemy of the freedom of thought and action. “ (Gulliver’s Travels and Other Writings, Jonathan Swift, pp 449-454)
By 1825, animus against God, Christianity, and moral constraints began to be processed by wayward Enlightenment thinkers such as Henri de Saint Simon and Auguste Comte into a system of philosophy and warped morality. Saint Simon systematized rejection of God, religion, and morality into socialism, while Comte enshrined love of self in his “Religion of Humanity,” which declared that narcissistic Promethean man was the true object of worship. Darwin’s “On the Origin of Species” undercut the authority of God by positing that man had evolved from slime. This provided anti-God freethinkers with a supposedly ‘scientific’ creation story. Thus empowered, they brazenly declared the death of God and began to unleash the full fury of their malignant envy and wrath upon an unsuspecting Christendom, Eastern Orthodox Christian Russia, and eventually Christian-Judeo America. These civilizations and their citizens were to be ‘unmade’ in the name of anti-Genesis science and reason. In their place would be devised a scientifically planned utopia and a New Un-Man fashioned to serve the egoistic vagaries and base appetites of the Promethean sub creators.
It was out of a crucible of insatiable appetite and malignant narcissism fueled by Nietzsche’s will to force that all variants of socialism arose: Marxism, Stalinism, Maoism, Nazism, and today’s progressivism, liberalism, feminazism, eco-radicalism, and the gay liberation movement, now evolving into a ‘polymorphously perverse beings’ movement.
Gay activists may howl and shriek in furious denial of the connection between their faux civil rights movement and socialism, but it is gay communists who have “let the cat out of the bag.”
In 1974, David Thorstadt—prominent member of the gay rights movement, Trotskyist, and founder of NAMBLA (North American Man-Boy Love Assoc.), co-authored with John Lauritson, a history of the early gay rights movement. The history, entitled The Early Homosexual Rights Movement: 1864-1935 links the modern post Stonewall Rebellion movement to its birth in Germany, in 1864. It also details the linkage to socialism.
Leslie Feinberg, transgender lesbian activist, author, and managing editor of the communist Workers World Newspaper concurs with Thorstadt: “The first great wave of struggle to demand sexual and gender emancipation had taken place from 1869 to 1935. It began in Germany. It was a dynamic, expanding movement that grew to be international.” (Rise of German Homosexual Emancipation Movement, www.workers.org)
At a Berlin rally held in front of the Reichstag building in 1918, Magnus Hirschfield, socialist leader of the Homosexual Emancipation Movement, stressed why socialism was crucial to their success: “Socialism means: solidarity…further development of society into a unified body of people.” Recalling Marx, Engel’s and other communist revolutionaries, Hirschfield said that not only in Germany, “but elsewhere too, nationalism attempted to destroy internationalism and militarism attempted to destroy socialism.” (The War to End All Wars: Pride and Struggle a Century Ago, Leslie Feinberg, www.workers.org)
Ernst Rohm—sadomasochistic homosexual, Hitler’s right-hand man, and icon for many gay activists today, was also a key player in the early gay movement. Progressive gay journalist, Johann Hari disclosed: “Rohm was the founding father of Nazism. He believed that gay people were superior to straights and saw homosexuality as a key principle of his proposed Brave New Fascist Order. As historian Louis Snyder explains, Rohm “projected a social order in which homosexuality would be regarded as a human behavior of high repute.” (www.JohannHari.com) The insane notion that socially destructive behaviors should be elevated to a level of ‘superiority’ is the fuel driving America’s gay rights movement and is at work this very moment in schools, universities, Hollywood, etc.
As with Rohm, Lenin and the Bolsheviks likewise regarded homosexuality, transgender, etc., superior to the Genesis account of man, and in their narcissistic-induced stupidity they unleashed its destructive forces upon Eastern-Orthodox Christian Russia. “Soviet sexologists in the 1920s participated in the international movement for sexual reform…a pamphlet titled “The Sexual Revolution in Russia…stated: Soviet legislation bases itself on the following principle: it declares the absolute non-interference of the State and society into sexual matters as long as nobody is injured, and no one’s interests are encroached upon. Concerning homosexuality, sodomy, and various other forms of sexual gratification, which are set down in European legislation as offenses against public morality---Soviet legislation treats these the same as so-called “natural” intercourse.” (Soviet Union in the 1920s: Scientific, not Utopian, www.workers.org) In the preceding statements, we can clearly see the foundational basis for today’s politically correct notions of tolerance, inclusion, privacy, consent and the forced-feeding of ‘gay’ perversion to American school children. “The Bolshevik Party did not merely scrap anti-homosexual Tsarist laws. They felt it was necessary to tear down the walls that divided homosexuality…from the rest of society. Soviet Russia was by far the most significant power since the French Revolution to decriminalize male same-sex.” (People of the Moonlight in the Dawn of Revolution, www.workers.org)
The first demands for same-sex marriage, sex reassignment surgery, and the right to ‘cross-dress’ were not made in post-Stonewall America but in Bolshevik controlled Russia. These things were disclosed in the article, 1920s Soviet Union: Rights for Lesbians, Transgenders, Transsexuals. It was also reported that masculinized, cross-dressing females were rewarded with influential positions of authority and influence throughout academia, the Red Army, and in the cultural arena. “women of the masculinized type (cross-dressing army commanders, for instance) were considered with fascination and indulgence.” (www.workers.org)
The same article bashes “backward” Christian-Judeo America for not allowing the mainstreaming of perversion: “That same year (1923) in the U.S., where anti-sodomy laws aimed to padlock closet doors, the FBI labeled anarchist Emma Goldman “the most dangerous woman in America” because of her vocal support for gay rights and other forms of social equality.”
As Utopian Madness Fades, a Semblance of Sanity Returns
The Bolsheviks’ fantasy of a Godless, morals free utopia, peopled by a New UnMan--a soulless, polymorphously perverse industrial robot-- collapsed into a hellish nightmare. It was a scene out of a pornographic bedlam: hordes of conscienceless “children of the State” visiting havoc and crime upon cities and towns, sex slavery, prostitution, gross debauchery and outright chaos. After years of revolution and famine the economy was severely damaged, and with the death of the family—the building block of society—both economy and culture collapsed.
Too late, the Bolsheviks and Lenin realized that without the family, there is no future.
In a desperate attempt to revive the family, Bolsheviks began to rein in sexual debauchery. By 1923, homosexuals lost the ‘right’ to harass straight men for sex, for this became a crime. Then in 1927, the ‘right’ to engage in sodomy was lost (criminalized) as was the right to keep “bachi”—cross-dressed, feminized boy dancers kept as prostitutes. The death knell rang in 1934 when both homosexuality and prostitution were declared crimes punishable by up to 8 years in prison. (Women in the Soviet Union, Jen Pickard, Youth for International Socialism)
The Soviet Union’s birth-to-death rate continued to fall. In the 1980’s, Gorbachev attempted yet more reforms. In an effort to undo dysfunctional gender-bending and restore natural male-female relations in hope of bringing the family back to life, a course titled, The Ethics and Psychology of Family Life was introduced into schools and shown on television. Its objective was to reinforce traditional roles. Teachers were urged to “train and train again, girls to be girls and boys to be boys.” (ibid) Meanwhile, here in America, the gender-bending continues full-throttle with this sort of lunacy: University of Michigan Offers Class: How to be Gay: Male Homosexuality and Initiation. Likewise, as was the case in Bolshevik Russia, marriage and the patriarchal family in America are under full attack--with intent to kill--as made clear by ‘gay’ activist Michelangelo Signorile who advises gays, “to fight for same-sex marriage…and then, once granted, redefine the institution of marriage completely…and radically alter an archaic institution.” (Source: www.forthechildreninc.com)
Shortly after President Reagan made his now famous “evil empire” speech March 8, 1983, the Soviet Union—a dead man walking—imploded.
Despite all reform efforts, Russia’s birth-to-death replacement rate in 2006 continues to fall. Confronted by the chilling prospect of a ‘dead’ Russia, Vladimir Putin has, in a last ditch effort, adopted a pro-birth policy that will pay families to have at least a second child—if not more. Additionally, stay-at-home mothers will receive 40% of their former salary and families with two children will receive a lump sum of $9000.
Even as a dying Russia turns back to God and strives mightily to restore and protect the institutions of traditional marriage and family so that it might live, America—under pressure from fantasy-believing godless Progressive utopianists—is steadfastly killing these vital life-giving institutions while simultaneously waging a war of attrition against Christianity. In the name of science, reason, progress, tolerance, inclusion, diversity, and orientation, America is casting herself into the grave from which Russia seeks escape.
