Sexual madness in an age of 'polymorphous perversity'

by Bill Muehlenberg

News Weekly, February 15, 2014

One can argue that the past century has been one grand social experiment to see what life would be like if we kicked God and transcendent moral values out of the West.

Well, the results are in, and are not looking very good. When we ditch the one certain source of objective morality and absolute truth, mankind is simply left to its own devices.

We end up making things up as we go along, and everyone does what is right in his own eyes. Anything goes, and this is especially true in the area of sexuality. All boundaries are cast aside, and every kinky and bizarre thing imaginable is engaged in and sanctioned.

Everywhere we see the brave new world of unbridled sexuality. And, despite what the sexual libertines say, we all suffer as a result — especially children. When we manage to foolishly convince ourselves that absolutely anything goes when it comes to sexuality, then there will always be plenty of losers.


So let me offer a recent handful of cases, beginning with this shocker from Italy: “Italy’s highest court has overturned the conviction of a 60-year-old man for having sex with an 11-year-old girl, because the verdict failed to take into account their ‘amorous relationship’.

“Pietro Lamberti, a social services worker in Catanzaro in southern Italy, was convicted in February 2011 and sentenced to five years in prison for sexual acts with a minor. The verdict was later upheld by an appeals court.

“But Italy’s supreme court ruled that the verdict did not sufficiently consider ‘the “consensus”, the existence of an amorous relationship, the absence of physical force, the girl’s feelings of love’.” (News.com.au, December 31, 2013).

So in Italy these supreme court judges apparently have no problem with paedophilia.

Of course, we are doing our best to turn young children into sexual dynamos, so I guess this should come as no real surprise.

New Zealand

Consider what they are doing to little children in New Zealand: “A new graphic sex education program aimed at five-to-12 year-olds has been launched in New Zealand, drawing sharp criticism from parents who are shocked at the material covered. The Every Body Education program provides both in-school and out-of-school programs for children aged between 5 and 12-years-old.”

Basically, nothing is left to the imagination here, it seems. And never mind that no 5-year-old that I know even remotely has sex on the brain. These sexperts think we must fill our kids’ heads with all things sexual.

But some New Zealand parents at least are fighting back: “One mother Carla Smith, who attended a Health Curriculum Community Evening at her child’s school in November, was disturbed the program was even being considered by her children’s school.

“Smith said she believes that a ‘one size fits all approach’ is ‘inappropriate’ in the school setting. Discussion around sexuality ‘should be introduced at home by parents at an age they determine appropriate for their individual children,’ she told 3News. ‘I just think you’re placing seeds in their head which they may not know what to do with. Who knows where those seeds are going to go in the future, and in what directions they’re going to turn?’ Smith said” (LifeSiteNews.com, December 11, 2013).

Elsewhere we see the bitter fruit of all this. With so many Western men addicted to pornography, the worldwide trafficking of children into sexual slavery is on the rise.


A recent report from Cambodia makes for sickening reading, but we must be aware of what is happening.

It begins: “When a poor family in Cambodia fell afoul of loan sharks, the mother asked her youngest daughter to take a job. But not just any job. The girl, Kieu, was taken to a hospital and examined by a doctor, who issued her a ‘certificate of virginity’. She was then delivered to a hotel, where a man raped her for two days.

“Kieu was 12 years old. ‘I did not know what the job was,’ says Kieu, now 14 and living in a safehouse. She says she returned home from the experience ‘very heartbroken’. But her ordeal was not over. After the sale of her virginity, her mother had Kieu taken to a brothel where, she says, ‘they held me like I was in prison’.

“She was kept there for three days, raped by three to six men a day. When she returned home, her mother sent her away for stints in two other brothels, including one 400 kilometres away on the Thai border. When she learned her mother was planning to sell her again, this time for a six-month stretch, she realised she needed to flee her home” (CNN.com, December 12, 2013).

Just how many Westerners are fuelling all this?


Other forms of sexual insanity can be found in Europe. They are also, in their own way, highly destructive of children.

I have written often before about the sexual madness in Sweden. A recent article begins this way about their creepy social engineering: “On a sunny afternoon in September, a 5-year-old girl played in a sandbox. The box contained more mud than sand, and as she whacked at it with a plastic shovel, globs of dirt stained her pink dress.

“But at the Nicolaigarden preschool in Stockholm, no teacher chastised her, and certainly no one told her that girls aren’t supposed to play like that. In fact, at Nicolaigarden, they try not to use the word girls at all.

“Or boys either. One of the most popular toys at the school, for both sexes, is a set of dolls designed to teach about emotions. Each wears a different expression — one smiles broadly, another frowns — but that is almost all they wear. Except for the homely knit hats that top their Nordically blond heads, the dolls are completely naked, which makes it easy to see that they have no distinguishable gender.

“And that just might be a metaphor for what this school, and perhaps Sweden as a whole, is trying to achieve. This is a country in the midst of a dramatic new experiment in gender equality — call it gender neutrality” (Time magazine, December 16, 2013).

This manic push for total and complete androgyny of course has to simply ignore the basic facts of biology. But radical social engineers do not let such facts stand in the way of pushing their ideological agendas. These coercive utopians will seek to implement their agendas no matter what.

In the United States there is more evidence of the damage we are doing to children, the family and society. Consider this astonishing news report: “A man who provided sperm to a lesbian couple in response to an online ad is the father of a child born to one of the women and must pay child support, a Kansas judge ruled Wednesday.”

Yes, you read that right. The story continues: “Topeka resident William Marotta had argued that he had waived his parental rights and didn’t intend to be a father. Shawnee County District Judge Mary Mattivi rejected that claim, saying the parties didn’t involve a licensed physician in the artificial insemination process and thus Marotta didn’t qualify as a sperm donor, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported.

“‘In this case, quite simply, the parties failed to perform to statutory requirement of the Kansas Parentage Act in not enlisting a licensed physician at some point in the artificial insemination process, and the parties’ self-designation of (Marotta) as a sperm donor is insufficient to relieve (Marotta) of parental right and responsibilities to the child,’ Mattivi wrote” (Kansas City Star, January 22, 2014).

What can I say? Welcome to the brave new world of sexual insanity. And it is becoming more and more insane with each passing day.

A decade ago, Albert Mohler, author, broadcaster and president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, wrote a piece analysing the overthrowing of morals and the spread of sexual depravity, which he described as “polymorphous perversity”.

His thoughts are well worth pondering in light of the above developments described in this article.

Dr Mohler wrote: “The subversion of marriage and the family has extended to law and morality, to authority and to custom. The very habits of human life — the customs and traditions on which civilisation is grounded — are now being reversed, marginalised and discarded in an effort to eliminate all norms by normalising the abnormal.

“For those whose agenda is to undermine Judeo-Christian morality and to disconnect Western civilisation from biblical norms, there is no better strategy than to subvert marriage, family and sexuality, and unleash on society an age and culture of polymorphous perversity” (AlbertMohler.com, September 19, 2005).
