Not being an apologist for Faux news here, but just wanted to post some thoughts.
There was a time when I would have said "I am sure same sex marriage will never be accepted or made "legal"".
I commented on another thread the experience of going to the store to go clothes shopping for my daughter and not being able to find appropriate length dresses. Think about the clothes being sold for children nowadays, especially girls - clothes that are far too sexualized for young children. What is the reason for that?
One other point. A society that had abuse of boys by men as an acceptable practice is not unheard of - ancient Greeks did so. It has happened before, perhaps it could happen again.
Does our society value children, really? They can be aborted at any time during 9 months of pregnancy. They often have to adjust to being raised in two homes because divorcing parents put their own 'happiness' before the need of their children to have a stable home. Oh, and that's if their parents bother to get married. There are plenty of half brothers and sisters out there from several different dads for some kids. Look what happens to them in the foster care system. Look what happens to them in our public schools (and as a former public school teacher, I saw there are plenty of parents out there who don't care and many refuse to even talk to their kids' teacher when there is a problem). Look at how they are used as guinea pigs for more and more vaccines (well, we're all used as guinea pigs, but children especially). Is it really such a stretch to imagine one day a society of adults that has become so self-centered and desensitized to the needs of children and their protection that this sort of behavior could become legalized?
I *so* want to believe that as a society we would never get *that* bad, but ...
Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. Mary, Our Mother, protect us under your mantle.
