THE SODOMIZING OF NEWSWEEK

© O. R. Adams Jr., 2008

BACK TO ARTICLES

To the right is a picture of the sacrilegious and blasphemous cover of the December 15, 2008, issue of Newsweek. With this issue, this magazine hit a new low in its denigrating of Christianity and promotion of sodomy. It has a long history of both. The cover story may be found at the web link: http://www.newsweek.com/id/172653/page/1

I do not know whether or not Jon Meacham, Editor of Newsweek, or Lisa Miller, author of the cover story, is a homosexual. But I do know that their writings reveal the perverted thinking that I have found from my studies to be common with homosexuals. They are certainly homosexualists – among those who advocate sodomy. Their writings are replete with contradictions, and false and unsupported statements. 

The definition of sodomy, as used in this paper, is "sexual intercourse between persons of the same sex." This is one of the definitions found in the older Webster dictionaries. It results from the Biblical accounts of the acts taking place in Sodom and Gomorrah. Throughout Western history, Sodom and Gomorrah have been considered examples of the lowest sexual depravity of mankind. Has our country now come to the point that we honor and commend sodomy? And even want to give it the blessing of Holy Matrimony? Obviously, Newsweek and its writers do. Personally, I believe that Newsweek should be flushed down to the sewer where it belongs.   

On page 4 of Newsweek is an editorial by Jon Meacham in which he makes his pitch for sodomy and homosexual marriage. Both he and Lisa Miller continually contradict themselves. They attack and denigrate the Bible, its scripture, and principal Bible characters, because they know that the Bible does not support sodomy or homosexual marriage, but condemns them; and they do not want people to rely on the scripture in considering these matters. If the Bible is so meaningless, why do they then try to falsely convince us that it supports homosexual marriage? What difference does it make if the Bible and our Christian religion are so worthless?

Meacham states that "resort to biblical authority is the worst kind of fundamentalism," and that "to argue that something is true because it is in the Bible is more than intellectually bankrupt – it is unserious, and is unworthy of great Judeo-Christian tradition." For Mr. Meacham's information, the Bible is the basis of both the Jewish religion and the Christian religion from which developed our Judeo-Christian traditions. What absurdity! Quite obviously he does not believe in those traditions, because they have always condemned sodomy. If we cannot rely on the Bible for what is right and wrong, then there is no immutable moral foundation. There are no real morals – only mores that change with the styles and with the times.

Further ignorance is then displayed by the statement that "sexual orientation is not a choice – a matter of behavior – but is as intrinsic in a person's makeup as skin color." Meacham is trying to convince us that some people are born with a homosexual orientation which cannot be changed. This is patently false. Normal people are born male or female, and with normal development through childhood and puberty, they will become normal adults with normal sexual orientation. They will not be homosexuals. The development occurs particularly through puberty, when boys become men and girls become women. Events can occur during childhood that interfere with or even prevent normal development. These events are too extensive and complicated to cover in this short paper, but they include rape, child molestation, and enticement to deviant sex at an early age. Sexual orientation of homosexuals can be and has been changed many times. In fact, with many individuals, their sexual orientation has been changed several times during their lives. Many have been cured of homosexuality. Have you ever heard of anyone's skin color being changed? The preponderance of the evidence is that it is events that occur during childhood and puberty that bring about the abnormality of homosexual tendencies, or homosexual "orientation." Researchers have spent years searching for a "gay" gene showing that homosexuality is inherited, but none has been found. Claims have been made to such findings, but objective examination has always shown these claims to be unsupported. Research may sometime determine that some people are born with abnormal attributes that make them more likely to turn to homosexual activity than normal people. But so far, not even this has been established. I have known boys that I considered real "sissies" and girls that I considered real tomboys that certainly did not turn out to be homosexuals. I consider it well established that no one is born with any orientation or compulsion that forces them to engage in the vile acts of sodomy. I cover these matters at length in Chapter 2, Causes of and Cures for Homosexuality, in the book, As We Sodomize America, which is available on this website under Books. Homosexualists like Meacham and Miller do not like to face the truth that many homosexuals have left homosexuality and become happy married heterosexuals, because the truth is against their agendas.

Also, even if homosexual orientation were inherited, such as some other mental defects and some forms of insanity, it does not follow that engaging in the vile acts of sodomy is acceptable. We do not consider a murder acceptable just because a person had an insane compulsion to commit murder that could be traced to an inherited mental defect. Authorities on the subject consider pedophilia more difficult to cure than homosexuality, and if homosexual inclinations are inherited then surely pedophilia tendencies, both homosexual and heterosexual, would also be inherited. But this does not mean that we should consider pedophilia or sodomy acceptable. They are both depravity, although pedophilia is the worst because the victims are children.

The article of Lisa Miller starts at page 28 of the magazine. It bears a different title than that indicated on the front cover. The title is Our Mutual Joy. The use of the word "our" is another indication that the author is a homosexual. The article is replete with false statements, misleading statements, and irrelevant references to the Bible. Not one word of scripture is cited that supports homosexuality, and certainly not homosexual marriage. And there is nothing in the Bible that supports either – it all condemns them.

Miller points to polygamy in the Old Testament. Certainly a better case exists for polygamy than for same-sex marriage, as there was no such thing as the latter in the Bible, and homosexuality was a grievous violation of both Mosaic law and Christian tenets, for which the punishment could be death. Back in early times, there may have been a reason for polygamy. Men seemed to have a very high mortality rate, and there may have not been enough men for all of the women to have husbands without polygamy. That way, more women could have a family and children. Polygamy was largely eliminated from Western society with the teachings of Jesus, and the advent of Christianity. The Christian religion was the reason that polygamy was prohibited in this country, and that Utah and a number of other western states were required to have a provision against polygamy in their constitutions before they could become states. 

Like Meacham, Miller denigrates both the Bible and biblical figures, yet she wants to find support in the Bible for same-sex marriages, when there is none. There were characters in the Bible who committed such sins as adultery, getting drunk, and many others, but all are condemned by the Bible. Just because the Bible relates wrongful things people did does not mean that it condones them. It does not – it condemns them.

She absurdly attacks the "New Testament model of marriage" because Jesus and the Apostle Paul never married. They spent their full time preaching and teaching the Christian religion, and had no time for a family. The expression is often used that "they were married to the church." For the same reason, even today the Catholic Church does not allow their Priests to be married. Neither Jesus, Paul, nor the Catholic Church believed that all people should quit getting married and having children, thereby eliminating the human race from the face of the earth. How ridiculous! All also condemned having sex or children outside of marriage.

As to marriage being between a man and a woman, Miller recognizes that the Old Testament says that "Therefore shall a man leave his mother and father, and cleave unto his wife, and they shall be one flesh." Then she cites false authority to the effect that we should disregard what the Bible says. If the Bible's plain wording on a subject is to be disregarded, why does she try to falsely convince us that it supports same-sex marriage?

She further denigrates the Bible saying that it supports slavery. Certainly, the Bible recognizes the fact that there was slavery, but I do not agree that its teachings on what is right and wrong support slavery. Moses worked hard to free his people from slavery; and the Christian religion, and those who followed it, were responsible for the elimination of slavery from England and the United States. Slavery is contrary to the "Golden Rule" stated by Jesus that we should do unto others as we would have them do unto us. The following is from page 423, of As We Sodomize America:

The major blot on our history was slavery, and its end came as a result of Christian influences in this country. "Abolitionism as an organized force began in England in the 1780s, when William Wilberforce and a group of wealthy evangelical Anglicans began agitating against the African slave traffic. Their success stimulated further political assaults on slavery itself. Parliament abolished West Indian slavery in 1833." (Encarta 98 Desk Encyclopedia)  "In the United States, antislavery activity began in colonial days. During the 1680s, Quakers in Pennsylvania condemned slavery on moral grounds. In the late 1700s, several leaders of the American revolutionary movement, including Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry, spoke out against slavery." (World Book Encyclopedia, 1997) President Abraham Lincoln, who ushered in the end of slavery, often professed his belief in God and the Holy Scripture.

Ms. Miller first recognizes that the Apostle Paul condemned homosexuality, saying that he was "tough" on it, then tries to make it appear that he was talking about something else. Paul clearly, strongly, and unmistakably condemned homosexuality.

Now we get to the part of her article that shows one of the most sad things that I have found reflected in homosexual writings. That is their apparent inability to understand what real love is. They equate love with perverted sexual lust. They cannot seem to comprehend that both men and women can have a great and deep love for others, including those of the same sex, with no sexual feelings involved whatsoever. This love can be for family members, or friends, and even animal pets that are loved like a member of the family. Many times soldiers have shown the ultimate love for their comrades in arms by laying down their own lives to save them. Miller sets out the following which is part of a poem that was written by David, after Jonathan was slain in battle:

I grieve for you, Jonathan my brother ;

you were very dear to me.

Your love for me was wonderful,

more wonderful than that of women.

Then she slyly tries to imply that this represents a homosexual relation, by saying: "Here the Bible praises endearing love between men. What Jonathan and David did or did not do in privacy is best left to history and our own imaginations." This truly reflects a perverted mind. David loved Jonathan as a brother. Would he be having sex with a brother? David also expressed his love for King Saul who took David into his household after David slew Goliath. Jonathan was Saul's son, and David thereafter considered Jonathan his brother. (See 1 Samuel, King James Version) I suppose Ms. Miller would infer a homosexual relationship with Saul, too. Also, in the passage referred to, the Bible was not praising anything. It was merely relating things that happened and were written.

Certainly David had his sins like all other mortals, but there is no evidence that sodomy was among them. His worst sin reported in the Bible was that he met and loved a married woman. So that he could marry her, he had her husband sent into battle where he would be killed, and then David married her. The Bible did not condone it just because it related it. It clearly states: "What David had done displeased the Lord." (2 Samuel 11:27, KJV) The Lord sent the Prophet Nathan to rebuke David for his sins, and David was punished for his sins, and a child of the woman was taken from him.  (2 Samuel 12:1-20, KJV)

The article then states the following about Jesus:

The Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit priest and author, cites the story of Jesus revealing himself to the woman at the well— no matter that she had five former husbands and a current boyfriend—as evidence of Christ's all-encompassing love.

I would not want to accuse even Lisa Miller of having such a twisted mind that she would imply that Jesus did the perverted act of revealing his sexual organs to the woman. However, this is indeed a strange statement, when she states that Jesus "revealed himself" to the woman, followed by the statements about her having had five husbands and had a "current boyfriend," and then falsely states that he did it because of his love. This is particularly true after Ms. Miller's statements about David and Jonathan showing her sick concept of what "love" is. This is common with the minds of many homosexuals.

There is only one story in the Bible about Jesus at a well with a woman who had had five former husbands and had a current "boyfriend." That is in John 4 of the New Testament. Jesus did not physically reveal himself in any way to the woman. He was already at the well in question when she arrived. Apparently she had a bucket to draw water and he didn't, and he asked her for a drink. She inquired as to why a Jew would ask a woman of Samaria for a drink of water. Jesus informed her that he knew that she had had five husbands, and was now living with a man that was not her husband, rebuking her. This surprised her and she said: "Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet." Jesus then informed her that he was the Messiah. There was no expression of "love" for the woman or her deeds. Jesus taught the recognition of and repentance for our sins. He certainly did not teach the acceptance of sinful acts as a "lifestyle." Please read this full chapter of John, and compare it to the above account by Lisa Miller. A wonderful thing provided for interested people are free online versions of the Bible that can be computer searched. My favorite is the King James Version. The web link is: http://www.bible.com/.

Ms. Miller says many false and misleading things about Jesus, and she of course does not even mention his statements that are most relevant to her article. These are the words of Jesus, Mark 10:6-8 (KJV):

But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;

And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.

Many homosexuals seem to have the inability to tell the truth, or to even recognize it. They are continually trying to bring great people of history down to their own level by falsely accusing them of being homosexuals. A few of these are George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, J. Edgar Hoover, King David, the Apostle Paul, and even Jesus.  Dr. Joseph Nicolosi, a clinical psychologist who specializes in treating homosexuals, said gay activists tend to project homosexuality onto others out of their own misunderstanding of same-sex friendships. "The homosexual worldview cannot include normal healthy friendships," he said.  "They can't imagine two males being in non-erotic friendship . . . because they don't know it."  (As We Sodomize America, pp. 378-380, 445-449)

From my studies, I believe that, next to murder, homosexuality is the most condemned sin in the Bible; and those condemnations include acts of both men and women. Two cities, Sodom and Gomorrah, were destroyed because of that sin. I go into this in detail, giving the Bible citations, in Chapter 3, Why Sodomy is Wrong, As We Sodomize America. The following are a very few of the citations from both the Old and the New Testaments, King James Version:

Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind: It is an abomination. (Leviticus, 18:22 )

If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. (Leviticus, 20:13 )

And there were also sodomites in the land; and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord cast out before the children of Israel. (1 Kings, 14:24 )

Romans, 1:26-27, 32 (These are the words of the Apostle Paul):

For this cause God gave them unto vile affections; for even their women did change the natural use unto that which is against nature:

And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which is meet. ...

Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.  

Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. (Jude, 1:7)

Jesus himself recognized the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah (Mark, 6:11 ), and condemned fornications and lasciviousness. (Mark, 7:21-23)

Although I believe in the teachings of the Holy Bible on what is right and wrong – particularly the New Testament, I do not need its teachings to know that the acts constituting sodomy are wrong. Once they learn about the things homosexuals do to get their classification, normal people with any sense of decency will at once recognize all homosexual acts as perverted and heinous.

For obvious reasons, homosexualists prefer to consider the homosexual issue in the abstract, and talk of "discrimination" and "equal rights", but it cannot be reasonably evaluated without considering the details of some of the most common acts defining homosexuality. If people are going to consider this "lifestyle" acceptable, they should know the details of what they are affirming.

Homosexual acts are against God and nature. It is necessarily a very unnatural thing, because male and female sexual organs were made to be used with the opposite sex.

As to females having sex together, much of it would be downright comical, if it were not so vile and depraved. If you did a Google search for "toys for lesbians", among others, you would find the following Lesbian Toy Shop website: http://www.lesbiantoyshop.com/index.htm. The first toy shown is a harness contraption with an artificial penis attached on the front. It is made for one lesbian to put on and have "sex" with another. I guess the one putting on the harness would be the "butch" (a homosexual term). It is a little hard for me to figure out what the "butch" gets out of this particular activity. You can get a bit of an education about homosexuality from this website. Note some of the other "toys" such their "bondage toys", including whips, handcuffs, and blindfolds. In a "beginners bondage kit" they have one that I haven't been able to figure out, which is "four bedpost extensions." Of course both male and female homosexuals engage in much more vile, filthy, and bizarre acts than this. These are indeed sick people. 

The Lesbian toy shop also has "toys for gay men." Click this and get another education. Many homosexual men are known to have put some very strange things in their rectums. The following is from the book, As We Sodomize America, p. 18:

"'Toy' is homosexual argot for various objects, including live animals, which are inserted into the rectum — sometimes bottles, carrots, lightbulbs or specially designed devices.  The risk for contamination is considerable.  More recently a small proportion of homosexuals do sex with animals — gerbils are commonly used."

However, it can get even more gross and dangerous than the above. There was a Reuters news article in July, 2005, about a Seattle man who died from having anal sex with a stud horse, resulting in perforation of the man's colon and other internal damage. I believe that such depravity can only come from a mind so sick that it is hard to imagine.  (This news item may presently be found at the web address: http://www.news24.com/News24/World/News/0,,2-10-1462_1739698,00.html) This last article explains that the farm where it happened was being used by a bestiality ring. It states: "A cache of hundreds of hours of videotaped man-on-beast sex sessions was found hidden in a field. ... The animals kept at the farm included ponies, horses, goats, sheep and dogs, according to the police commander. Images of the flock of offerings on the bestial dude ranch were relayed over the internet and records indicate men had come from throughout the United States, according to police." This is not only extreme sexual depravity, but it is also heartless cruelty to animals.

The following are statistics from various studies on some of the most common male homosexual acts:

100% engaged in oral sex. 89% engage in anal sex, inserting the penis into the anus of the partner. 85% engage in "rimming", touching the anus of one's partner with one's tongue and inserting the tongue into the anus. 28% engage in "golden showers", urinating on each other. 41% engage in "fisting", inserting one's fist into the anus of the partner. 17% engage in "scat - fudge sports – mudrolling", the eating of feces, or rubbing of feces on each other, and in "mud rolling", rolling on the floor where feces have been deposited.  32% engage in sadomasochism, bondage, or brutality. 19% engage in sex with animals. 88% engage in threesomes, orgies, or group sex. 68% have had sex in a gay bath. 50% have engaged in sex in a peep show or booth. 66% have had sex in public restrooms.

The above information was taken from As We Sodomize America, Chapter 1, entitled "What are Homosexual Acts?". These are only a small part of the gross acts common to homosexuals compiled in that Chapter. The following is other information in that book from various studies:

One survey by two homosexual authors [and researchers] found that 73 percent of homosexuals had at some time had sex with boys 16-19 years old or younger.  (Jay and Young, supra, p. 275)  (p.53)

A nationwide investigation of child molestation in the Boy Scouts of America (see Insight magazine, June 17, 1991) reported 1,151 complaints by Boy Scouts of abuse by Scout leaders in the past 19 years, in all 50 States and the District of Columbia. This makes, the article stated, "sex abuse more common in Scouting than accidental deaths and serious injuries.... In that time, at least 416 men have been arrested or banned from Scouting for molesting boys in their care."  The Boy Scouts have spent literally millions of dollars in litigation related to this abuse. (p.55)

Homosexuals have a long history of focusing on youth. The North American Man/Boy Love Association has worked for two decades to abolish [and lower] age consent laws, so that adult males could legally solicit sex from boys. (The Gay Agenda) (p. 56) [They have also been helped in their efforts by the ACLU] [Ruth Bader Ginsburg, ACLU activist and now United States Supreme Court Justice, advocated the lowering of the age for sexual consent to 12 years. (pp. 230-231) See these pages for some of her other perverted views. If you want to see what a radical immoral organization the ACLU really is, do a word search in the book using ACLU.]

In the last several years there have been reports of innumerable Roman Catholic priests and brothers, in the U.S. and other countries, who have had homosexual relations with altar boys and other young boys under their care or influence. (p. 65) [These reported assaults on young boys by homosexual Priests now number into the many thousands, and it has cost the Catholic Church many millions of dollars.]

The following are statistics on acts engaged in between lesbians (female homosexuals) from a study reported on page 28 of As We Sodomize America:

Oral sex, 90%. Anal sex, 48%. Sadomasochism, 21%. Bondage, 44%. Anal fisting, 33%. Golden Showers (urinating on one another), 17%. Sex with animals, 15%. Threesomes, orgies, or group sex, 71%. Sex in public restroom. 24%.

This book also has information about older women having sex with young girls. There seems to be little difference in the nature of the sexual acts of lesbians and male homosexuals. In these statistics, I did not differentiate between bisexuals and homosexuals, since both engage in sodomy.

Another book that I would recommend to a person who wants more information on homosexuality, and the perverted acts engaged in by homosexuals, such as those related above, is Homosexuality: Good and Right in the Eyes of God?, by F. Earle Fox and David W. Virtue, Emmaus Ministries (2d Ed. 2002). It is a well documented book. Most if not all of this book can be found online at the following website link:

http://books.google.com/books?id=cbfVg_1qhe0C&pg=RA3-PA287&lpg=RA3-PA287&dq=%22Homosexuality:+Good+and+Right+in+the+Eyes+of+God%3F%22&source=web&ots=aDUej5W_As&sig=74Pf-2qvoTwBaTLB_Y1pASLOmDw&hl=en&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=2&ct=result#PPP1,M1

On the right side of the page of the book information at the above link is a place where searches of the material can be made.

For another comprehensive article criticizing both Jon Meacham's statements and Lisa Miller's article, see Professor Robert Gagnon's article, "More than 'Mutual Joy': Lisa Miller of Newsweek against Scripture and Jesus," at the link:  http://www.robgagnon.net/NewsweekMillerHomosexResp.htm  

Newsweek and its writers want our country to not only accept the perversion of Sodom and Gomorrah, but to bless it with Holy Matrimony. This would complete the sodomizing of America.
