Kisses and the Sweet Poison of Immorality in Popular Media: A brief reflection.
I quite remember in the mid 90s when I was a huge fan of Hercules and Xena. It lead me to watch the Xena: Warrior Princess.
As a child these fantasy series were quite popular and it is shocking that I have forgotten many of the series except for one particular scene. This scene was when Xena and Gabrielle kissed. (I didn’t know a thing about lesbianism and same-sex issues etc at the time.)
Today that I have a more extensive knowledge about gay and lesbian deceptions in popular media and its dangerous attacks on the family and marriage life. I was quite amazed by the reactions to the gay kissing scandal photo that Facebook took off from its site resulting to protests in the same-sex sympathizers camps around the world.
I’ll now attempt to analyze both pictures and give both amoral and a moral biblical view to these unfortunate events. Than you.
On the amoral side of things (How a pervert generation will look at these scandals):
Both photos seems to be pretty normal pictures with nothing extraordinary in an atheistic sense. The only issues that may arise are how men and women response emotionally as well as psychologically to them.
Since males response more sexually through sight than females, more men naturally speaking might appreciate seeing girls and women kissing each other not necessarily because they endorse lesbianism but due to their natural cravings for the opposite sex and their greedy nature as men trying to dominate by their ego. On the other hand, most girls and women might find it quite appalling seeing other girls kissing each other not because they reject lesbianism per say but due to the fact that they are not easily responsive to sight as in the case of men.
The most appalling thing definitely for most men is to see other men kissing!
On the moral side of things (How a godly generation will look at these scandals):
Same sex attractions and relationships of any form, shape and manner are both appalling and inconsistent with reason and nature. It is unnatural for girls or women to be kissing each other in a sexual function. It is also equally devastating for boys and men to kiss in this manner.
You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination. (Leviticus 18:22 RSV)
If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them. (Leviticus 20:13 RSV)
Do you not know that the unrighteous and the wrongdoers will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived (misled): neither the impure and immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who participate in homosexuality, Nor cheats (swindlers and thieves), nor greedy graspers, nor drunkards, nor foulmouthed revilers and slanderers, nor extortioners and robbers will inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-10 AMP)
Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. (Romans 1:22-28 RSV)
We need to address the errors of this world by starting with those in our surroundings and community. Let’s do the right thing and stop being silence when we see others going astray. Let’s not forget to pray, pray and pray for those in these errors and those promoting them financially and defending them both philosophically and psychologically.
“I beg you not to criticize me by invoking charity, because the greatest charity is to deliver souls held fast by Satan in order to win them over to Christ.” – Saint Padre Pio
All hope is NOT loss yet. The recent British Royal wedding demonstrates that with majority of people around the world waiting for the natural, logical, biblically defended kiss that is legitimate before God and man that they may kiss in a sexual manner as husband and wife alone.
REMEMBER: He that sees another in error and endeavors not to correct it, testifies himself to be in error. ~Pope Leo I
