Piers Morgan, after being invited to an event at the Playboy Mansion, said “It was the nearest thing to a Caligula-style Roman orgy I have ever experienced.” We’re back to Rome. We’re back to the Roman orgies and that’s seen as good. It’s viewed as sexual liberty, and that’s what the culture now looks forward to.
The presupposition of our world right now is that we create our own identities and our own values. Therefore, if you make a statement of judgment, that’s seen as a personal attack. It’s a very delicate place to be as a Christian; if we make any kind of statements, we are dismissed as being hate-filled.
Behind all this is the attack on the binary. Stanford University offers a course entitled “Destroying Dichotomies: Exploring Multiple Sex, Gender and Sexual Identities.” Two lesbians write an article, “Can We Put an End to the Gender Binary?” This is, of course, the notion that is currently driving our culture in terms of sexuality. A short time ago, a public school department in Texas sent a message to its schoolteachers, telling them they must no longer refer to children as boys and girls. What’s going on here? It’s the abolition of the binary. And so our culture, which was based on the binary–God creating the world separate from himself and putting distinctions within his creation–is now under massive attack in a deliberate attempt to get rid of any notion of distinction…in order that we can never again remember God as distinct from us.
People like Hugh Hefner and Alfred Kinsey concurrently attempted to destroy the binary by changing how we view sexuality. At the time of his Hefner’s death, his son described his father’s achievement thusly: “My father was a leading voice, advocating free speech, civil rights and sexual freedom.” Piers Morgan, after being invited to an event at the Playboy Mansion, said “It was the nearest thing to a Caligula-style Roman orgy I have ever experienced.”1 We’re back to Rome. We’re back to the Roman orgies and that’s seen as good. It’s viewed as sexual liberty, and that’s what the culture now looks forward to.
I met a brilliant German intellectual named Gabriele Kuby during a trip to Korea in 2017. Kuby, a radical feminist and atheists during the 1960s, helped bring about the so-called Sexual Revolution. But then she became a Christian. Kuby argues in her book, The Global Sexual Revolution, that this movement started with a student rebellion and is now a revolutionary cultural agenda of the world’s power elites that rejects any standards of sexual morality as it attempts to create a new human being. It is aimed at a person’s innermost moral structure. A person who is sexualized from childhood is taught that it is right to live out all of your instincts without reflection, and that it is wrong for you to set boundaries for those instincts.
