Disney, Pornography and Plague
By J.L. Robb
The Book of Revelation talks of plague coming on the earth in the last days. The first few times I read these passages, I wondered what kind of diseases would raise their ugly, deadly heads? Small Pox? Bubonic Plague, Ebola, SARS or Marburg? The flu?
Plague coming on the world is nothing new. The Spanish Flu (1918-1919) killed more people than World War I when an estimated 50-million died; and 500-million contracted the Spanish Flu, one-third of the world’s population at the time. Imagine that.
Since plague is nothing new, how will plague in the last days be different? Will all plague be disease or pestilence?
Merriam-Webster defines plague: a disastrous evil or affliction; calamity
Is pornography a plague? Could sexual deviation be a plague? Did the Sexual Revolution of the seventies cause any affliction or disastrous evil on the world? If so, why did societies accept such behavior as normal?
The Gay Plague- GlobalSecurity.org:
At a moment when gay men and lesbians were claiming their right to freely express their sexuality, in 1981 the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) quietly announced the emergence of a new and deadly disease. Because it seemed to affect mostly gay men, the disease was initially labeled “GRID”—gay-related immune deficiency. Shortly thereafter, because of protests that GRID stigmatized the gay population and the fact that the virus was also found in intravenous drug users, Haitians, and patients who had received blood transfusions, the name was changed to AIDS — acquired immune deficiency syndrome.
The disease is no longer called the Gay Plague; and as we know, it has now spread into all populations, not only the gay community where it had its beginning. Global toll: More than 25-million dead, yet the gay community claims it is not a “plague.”
Now there is the second Gay Plague according to Lavender Magazine.
In an article in the NY Times, February 6, 1983:
In mid-1981, the Federal Government became involved in the mystery. To investigate the outbreak, the C.D.C. formed a special task force, which published its first findings in June and July in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, C.D.C.’s official publication. Of the 116 homosexual patients identified at the time, about 30 percent had Kaposi’s sarcoma, about 50 percent had Pneumocystis pneumonia and about 10 percent had both. The remaining 10 percent had unusual infections that also usually affect only the immunosuppressed.
In the fall of 1981, the C.D.C. studied the sexual habits of 50 homosexual victims of AIDS. The investigators did not ask for the names of their partners. ”We just didn’t think they’d know any names,” admits Dr. Darrow, a member of the C.D.C. task force who has spent 20 years studying the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. Later, to his surprise, some people came forward on their own to volunteer names.
”One guy in Los Angeles whose dear friend had died – a man with whom he had lived for many years – came to us and said, ‘You really ought to know that my friend had sex with three or four of the other cases in Los Angeles and six more cases I know of throughout the United States,’ ” Dr. Darrow says. ”Simultaneously, a patient who had been seen for syphilis told us, ‘I had sex with five or six people I know of who have the gay plague.’ That made us think that maybe the others would know the names of some of their contacts.”
A disastrous evil or affliction; calamity?
It is amazing the way the Holy Bible is spun and expounded upon in today’s progressive and political world. Suddenly, any behavior is being accepted under the guise of following the Christian principle of the Golden Rule.
Even US Presidents spin, spin, spin:
“[Michelle and I are] both practicing Christians. And obviously this position may be considered to put us at odds with the views of others. But, you know, when we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is not only Christ sacrificing himself on our behalf, but it’s also the Golden Rule, you know? Treat others the way you would want to be treated. And I think that’s what we try to impart to our kids.” President Barack Obama
The Golden Rule is being used to rationalize sin! I suppose we should treat pedophiles, necrophiles and psychopaths the way we want them to treat us? Does anyone really believe this is what Jesus meant by the Golden Rule?
When the gay-marriage movement first got legs, liberal California became the test case. Remember Proposition 8?
In 2008 a state-wide California ballot gave the voters the opportunity to outlaw same-sex marriage. At the time of the vote, same-sex marriage was constitutionally protected in California.
The left and the homosexual lobby were thrilled that the issue was finally on the ballot. They were certain that California would vote against the Proposition. By a margin of 52% to 47%, California voted for Proposition 8. Two years later, a federal judge ruled that Proposition 8 was unconstitutional and invalidated the vote. The voters don’t really matter.
Pornography: The depiction of erotic behavior (as in pictures or writing) intended to cause sexual excitement.
Some say that porn is okay because it is never mentioned in the Bible? From the definition above, one could deduce that there was little, if any, pornography by today’s definition, when Moses wrote the Law as spelled out by God. There was no audio and video production, nor was pornography a word.
Jesus is speaking to his apostles:
“But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
Pornography is all about lusting.
Every kid and adult now has a porn store in the palm of their hands and they go there a lot. Five times more men visit pornography internet sites than women, 25% of the sites on the internet are porn sites and 62% of high school children visit a porn site at least once per week. Wonder how many porn shops there were during the Founders’ day?
“It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God; 6 and that in this matter no one should wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister. The Lord will punish all those who commit such sins, as we told you and warned you before. For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit.” 1 Thessalonians 4:3-8 NIV
Last week I saw the following headline from Teen Vogue magazine, a spinoff of Vogue, targeting teenage girls. What kind of message are they sending teenage girls? Here is the headline about the new Disney movie and the first two paragraphs:
Disney Just Aired its First Same-Sex Cartoon Kiss
It’s about time!
2016 was the best year for LGBTQ representation on television yet, and if Disney XD’s recent move is any indication, 2017 is set to be a pretty inclusive one as well.
In a recent episode of Disney XD’s Star vs. the Forces of Evil, Mashable points out there were numerous same-sex kisses. The multiple makeout sessions marked the first time Disney has ever shown same-sex cartoon characters kissing, making history for the channel.
Do people really spin in their graves like the saying goes? If so, Walt Disney is spinning away. In the beginning of Disney’s world, many of the productions were dripping with morality and life’s lessons, respect for parents and family. Now Disney World has Gay Day and young boys kissing on the lips in cartoons. Why? What happened? It used to be a sin in society, but now we have parades proclaiming how proud we are to sin.
It’s about time? Really?
Plague in the last days certainly pertains to disease and pestilence, the kinds we have never seen before. It also includes the plagues of abortion and sexual promiscuity.
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Isaiah 5:20 NIV
