The Lies of Tolerance

A commercial aired during the evening news was filled with children and teens pleading with the viewers to be tolerant with those of different races, religions and lifestyle choices. They sounded so sincere, so guileless. The message was simple and appealing. Their statements held a certain validity. And yet, underlying this seemingly innocent commercial was a propaganda based upon lies to engineer society...

"Philosophically, you can believe anything, so long as you do not claim it to be true. Morally, you can practice anything, so long as you do not claim that it is a better way. Religiously, you can hold to anything, so long as you do not bring Jesus Christ into it.... A journalist can walk into a church and mock its carryings on, but he or she dare not do the same if the ceremony is from the eastern fold."

The sad irony about the tolerance movement is that it is not tolerant. The moment you disagree with those who believe in the secular version of tolerance, you are labeled a bigot, homophobe or worse. This becomes a justified form of hate advanced by the politically correct.

Lust

"Two bishops were walking down the street when they noticed a scantily-clad prostitute coming toward them. As she passed, one bishop turned his head and said to the other, Brother Bishop, avert your eyes. The second, bishop, however, did not look away, but stared intently at the woman as she walked by. When she had passed, the first bishop turned to his companion, only to see tears in his eyes. Why didn't you turn away? asked the man. Such beauty, said his companion, to be consumed by the lusts of men.

Which of these two did the right thing? They both did. The first bishop knew that he would lust after the woman if he looked´┐Żand rightly turned his eyes. He knew it would be wrong to dishonor God's creature in such a way. The second bishop, however, was able to see beyond the lustful desires of the heart to the intrinsic beauty, worth, and dignity of the woman´┐Żand rightly wept for how she was being used and abused by others."

How to be a Great Lover

"The world's concept of love is extremely shallow and goes no deeper than the emotions one is feeling at any particular time. Since each person is expected to consider his own interests before those of others, love is no more substantial than the super-charged feelings of a new relationship. Hollywood's concept of love is, in reality, nothing more than sexual lust. Based on this notion, one's emotions are the foundation for love. One can then safely say that commitment is only as secure as a person's fluctuating passions."
