Do you ever sense that it can’t get any worse? Every so often seemingly unrelated events can put the entire quandary into a distinct perspective. The combination of Canada’s decision that would change its law to allow homosexual marriage and the American Medical Association endorsement of cloning for research purposes, hit a new low. Just what kind of society is humanity willing to accept?
It is hard to find two examples that are more clear cut and pristine in their immoral disposition. If there is a need to argue against each practice, those who promote such behavior, have already perverted the culture. This is not an issue of being broad minded, tolerant or progressive. It is fundamental. Breathing is essential to sustain life, now we are being refitted to accept conjugal union from opposite ends. The first is necessary, while the later is discretionary. Elective behavior means it is optional. That plainly means that a moral decision, for good or bad, is part of the decision.
The idea that there exists a visible standard for conduct is the most assaulted concept in the emerging cesspool that masquerades as living. As civilization expires, the substitute escalates to elevated levels of depravity. How course it has become in cultured circles to condemn deviancy. Removing the reproductive miracle from human contact would naturally end the species. But before the inborn demise occurs, the science of cloning multiple Frankenstein surrogates will rescue the breed, from a self inflicted mass suicide.
“The subtitle to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is The Modern Prometheus. In one version of the myth, Prometheus defends the human race against Zeus and, as a consequence, suffers greatly for a long period of time. Prometheus somehow feels responsible for the beings for whom he has defied the Gods to bring new knowledge and new tools. Looking at Frankenstein as Prometheus the natural comparison is the knowledge of life from death and the knowledge of Fire. Like Pandora’s Box, once opened, unleashed or unbound, the creator loses control of its creation. Like Frankenstein, the scientists of today must confront the reality of success in an endeavor that may well unleash knowledge the consequences of which are unknown.”
While the uncertainty that would result from cloning is apparent, the known outcome of same sex marriage is obvious. The social costs of destroying the traditional family could not be more clear. When Canada’s Prime Minister Jean Chretien states: “There is an evolution of society,” he said in the announcement, the proposed law would allow religions the right to decide what marriages should be sanctified. Opinion polls indicate a slight majority of Canadians favor legalizing same-sex marriages. So what are we to expect or accept, from our friends and neighbors, who live under the maple trees?
If you ask the AMA or the gay community they would presumably be eager to assemble a society where anything goes.
The same arguments that are used by proponents of genetic engineering and cloning techniques could have been raised in defense of the experiments of Dr. Frankenstein. Learning the secrets to creating life inevitably provides lessons to extending and improving life. The problem becomes the ethical or moral considerations of creation. There is a point where the creator must take responsibility and where the created gains independence.” So too, the autonomy that same-sex couples crave, seeks a social legitimacy that resembles the feigned righteousness that geneticists avow for their experiments.
Just what is being created from an illicit moral coupling? What will be developed from designer clones?
Those who favor the connubial values of Vermont over conventional mores of New Hampshire are more likely to endorse the mad scientist that purports to be enlightened. Who thinks the likelihood that homophiles will be moving north of the border? More probably the exodus south will be the same perverted and abnormal values. No wonder that Harry Potter’s social relativism is so popular, just look at the ethics of modern society.
The door opening for cloning research will invariably lead to the lament from a monster of conscious creation. When Frankenstein utters: “I considered the being whom I had cast among mankind and endowed with the will and power to effect purposes of horror, such as the deed which he had now done, nearly in the light of my own vampire, my own spirit let loose from the grave, and forced to destroy all that was dear to me”, he speaks for all of us.
The grave that homosexuals populate is a bed full of degeneration. Acceptance of such behavior with official government blessings, results in the entombment of brotherhood.
A REQUIEM!–and for whom!
For beauty in its bloom?
For valour fall’n?–a broken rose or sword?
A dirge for king or chief,
With pomp of stately grief,
Banner, and torch, and waving plume deplor’d?
The score from Mozart’s Requiem is a funeral march for a sick society. No geneticist will raise from the dead the loss of moral virtue.
Freedom presupposes improper choices, while Liberty requires responsible behavior. No society can continue, prosper and even exist; unless it accepts, preserves and protects its moral foundation. Issues of unnatural acts, becoming approved unions, are a disaster for any nation. Endorsing cloning and calling it medically ethical is “totally inappropriate . . . when a number of us believe that human beings start with two cells”, is too mild a rebuke from a doctor and AMA member. It is a catastrophe for all of mankind. The fabric of society easily wears thin, when immorality is recognized and sanctioned. The human race is shattered when man wants to play God. The solution for both evils is to obey the natural law and act accordingly.
Listening to Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik is preferable to attending the last rites of civilization and humanity.
