Aside from the Episcopal Church’s heretical election of a sodomite bishop, the latest scandal in the collapse of culture is a high school in New York City which is being set aside for so-called “homosexual” students. Wisely, a Latino-American group is suing the city for discrimination and ConservativePetitions.com has mounted a campaign targeting the mayor of New York.
Even more insidious and less publicized is the on-going infiltration of prep schools by pedophiles. Exeter and Groton are among the best boarding schools in the country and have even helped educate American presidents. Regrettably, these formerly Christian, highly structured, exemplary academies are being infected by pedophiles who find the boarding-school atmosphere a perfect place to exercise their power to convert underage children who are not at a stage of cognitive or psychological development that they can make wise decisions in this respect.
As one wise country singer has said, every teen-ager is confused about their sexual identity.
Several years ago, a scandal erupted in Exeter when it was found out that an art teacher had been raping, sodomizing and molesting the boys. Then the same thing happened at Groton, and a friend of ours called to tell us that his son had been abused and he was suing the school. His case made it to national headlines. Now, another headmaster is fighting for homosexual housing and for the homosexualization of the church.
These perverted thinkers hide behind the now-disproved theory that people are born this way. Even if the fickle fate of scientific research should go the other direction, it would not be cause for bringing pedophiles into the prep schools. Children who are born with heart defects are treated medically to repair their heart. Children born with autism or schizophrenia are treated to help them overcome their problems. People who come out of homosexuality have expressed great joy and relief they’re no longer caught in the sodomy lifestyle.
Furthermore, the majority of homosexuals say they were preyed upon when they were younger by an older adult. If colleges should be safe places for our children, so even more so should boarding schools, classrooms and churches. We cannot express anxiety about pedophile priests when there are pedophile pedants advocating sodomizing children in prep school.
In addition to the medical and psychological evidence on homosexuality and pedophilia, there is universal condemnation of sodomy in the Word of God. The problem with abandoning the Word of God is that countries which do so, and individuals who do so, stew in the bile juice of their own sins. As the book of Romans says, they will bear the marks of their depravity in their own body.
For example, Canada, which has been ahead of the United States on the road to sinful serfdom, is suffering the fate of those who stew in the juice of their own sin. SARS has marked Toronto as an infected metropolis, while across the border in the United States, the devastation has not occurred. Mad-cow disease, crop blights, strikes and all of the problems plaguing Canada are a perfect example of what happens when people abandon God.
Throughout history, the countries that abandon God have ended up in the same condition. These boarding schools will end up in the same place. For a few years, they will produce a crop of abused children and then fewer and fewer parents will send their children there until these schools become shadows of their former selves.
One well-liked, brilliant girl at one of these boarding schools wrote against this madness and was viciously attacked by a pedophile professor. The pedophile stages a benefit for returning alumni to convert them to their perversion.
The bad news is that these children will be corrupted. The worse news is that these pedophiles are sealing their own doom. Sadly, people of conscience, wisdom and understanding are failing to take a stand. As God warns us:
“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. When I say to a wicked man, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn him or speak out to dissuade him from his evil ways in order to save his life, that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood. But if you do warn the wicked man and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his evil ways, he will die for his sin; but you will have saved yourself.”
