Father Barron on Pres. Obama’s “The Audacity of Hope”

Interesting prospective on moral relativism and absolutism. The struggle to make the philosophy fit the stance.

  1. “…he hath reserved under darkness in everlasting chains, unto the judgement of the great day.

    As Sodom and Gomorrha and the neighboring cities, in like manner, having given themselves to FORNICATION and going after OTHER FLESH, were made an example, suffering the punishment of eternal fire.” Jude, paragraphs 6 and 7.
    “But before they went to bed, the men of the CITY beset the house both YOUNG AND OLD, ALL the PEOPLE together.
    And they called Lot, and said to him: where are the men that came in to thee at night? Bring them out hither that we may know them.” (This is from Genesis 19, paragraphs 4 and 5 regarding the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha)

    There are several references in the Old and New Testaments about the evils of the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrha. The two referenced above clearly demonstrate that in those cities evils spoken of were not just homosexuality but immoral sexual lusts of several natures. St. Jude mentions fornication (as the type of heterosexual copulation between a man and a woman which is against God’s Law) and going after other flesh. Other flesh is homosexuality, likely pedophilia, and possibly beastiality. In Genesis it is mentioned that Lot’s house was beset by the men of the city, both YOUNG and OLD, ALL the people together. God destroyed the entire city because all of the people were guilty of horrible sexual sin and all of the people included men, women, and children.
    Therefore, it is very obvious that where one sin begins, a similar sin of like nature often follows. For example, in a marital conflict, if a man becomes constantly very angry at his wife, this anger can lead to violence and repeated violence can lead to serious violence and serious violence to possibly murder. Immoral sin of the flesh is no different. As humans, we are never completely sexually satisfied and when we over-ride our moral consciouces, we may experiment with immoral sexual practices. Since we are never sexually satisfied, once the “new thrill” wears off, we may again go more beyond our moral consciouces and try even more deviant sex (pedophilia, sadomasachism, beastiality, etc.) This is a twisted psychological state. And unless you are willfully blinded, it is clear in Luke and Genesis that in Sodom and Gomorrha; the people of those cities, at a minimum, were committing acts of fornication, homosexuality, and pedophilia.
    In summary, at this time, the world is teaching us and our innocent children that homosexuality should be considered normal, acceptable, and commedable. Soon, unless we all speak up, there will be laws that carry severe punishment for anyone who mentions that acts like homosexuality are morally wrong. Unless we speak up NOW, pedophilia will be deemed, by law, an acceptable lifestyle. We all need to protect our children and if we do not speak up, we will be guilty and responsible for what happens to us as a society and for what happens to our chil
