If you were to go back 50 years in time and describe to people the moral universe as it would exist in 2006 you would not be believed. You would be thought a grotesque pervert for imagining such things and would be rightfully shunned by polite society.

Ah, but we have come a long way, baby! Those activities that could not even be mentioned then are now boasted about and performed in public. And of course the state has gotten into the act of aiding and abetting our moral decline. Recall Clinton’s Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders  recommending that masturbation be taught to kindergarteners. (But who would teach it?)

It was only a matter of time before like-minded perverts formed their own groups and demanded recognition from government. Thus the push for special rights for sodomite marriage. But this morning I read of a new coalition made up of about every sexual grotesquerie I can conjure up. A bunch of well-heeled perverts have formed a union of sorts and are demanding—you guessed it—that government grant them taxpayer money.

In a call to arms called Beyond Same-Sex Marriage: A New Strategic Vision for All Our Families & Relationships these twisted folk comprise a menagerie of unhygenic activities and bizarre practices.

Organized by a “diverse group of nearly twenty LGBT [lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender] and queer activists,” the several hundred signatories include a predictable list of homosexual rights advocates, sexologists, self-professed pagans, and practitioners of polyamory, among other colorful categories. But it also includes Rabbi Michael Lerner of Tikkun, Cornel West at Harvard, Gloria Steinem of Ms. magazine, and a smattering of rabbis, Unitarians, Quakers, ex-nuns, and leftist Protestant clergy.

Their writing is a manifesto of sickness and spiritual disease. It is filled with multi-cultural and post-modern gobbledygook. Here is one example (put your coffee cup down first). By parading their odd habits they wish to end the

structural violence of poverty, racism, misogyny, war, and repression, and to build an unshakeable foundation of social and economic justice for all, from which authentic peace and recognition of global human rights can at long last emerge.

Perhaps these creatures could bring peace to the Middle East. We could at least send them to Hezbollah. Think what you want of Islamic fascists, but they would know how to handle “a diverse group of queer activists.”

We live in an interesting time where everything and anything goes. All behavior is merely a function of biology. If it feels good, then both do it and force others to either join you or support you.

As always when such things arise in our culture I ask myself if there is anything left, if there is anything yet so disgustingly filthy that no one would possibly wish to be known to practice it. Remember that NAMBLA itself is already middle-aged. What’s next? Should you ask?

I will tell you. The next ‘new new thing’ will be zoophilia. This hobby even has its own philosopher, none other than Peter Singer, a professor of bioethics at Princeton. Soon its practitioners will energe from the shadows just as sodomites emerged from the closet years ago. You read it here first.

And no, I am not kidding. Be forewarned, and don’t let your pets out of your sight.
