In today’s culture in the USA the answer is a resounding “NO!” And I certainly agree with the mainstream viewpoint. But according to our current immoral laws is it a narrow and discriminatory view?
How about this question, is it okay for men to have sex with other men? Or women having sex with women? In today’s culture the dominant answer is “yes, it’s okay”. But if you asked Americans that same question 50, or even 25 years ago the answer would have been “No, it’s not okay, it’s lewd and immoral.”
50 years ago it was considered lewd and immoral for a woman to show her tummy. 100 years ago it was unheard of for a decent woman to show her ankles yet alone any other skin other than her face and hands! But now women are prancing around in public wearing g-string bikinis and the people say its okay.
So what happened?
Sex and the Decline of Morality
Most Americans say we as a people have become more tolerant of difference and more loving to others. So we are moving from intolerance and discrimination toward tolerance and fairness. “Let people be who they were born to be, as long as they are not hurting anyone, it’s all good” seems to be the mantra of the day.
With each new tiny socially acceptable slip in decency comes the eventual degradation of morality that is leading to the ultimate decay of our society.
The Road of Immorality
Well then, allow me to propose my original question again, in 50 years from now, will it be okay for adults to have sex with children? This is the road of immorality that we as a nation are driving on. Think about where we’ve been, where we are now, and where it could be going. And it’s not just a road with low speed limits anymore; it’s becoming more like an eight lane super highway to hell!
I know that sounds really extreme, but let’s call it what it is.
What’s right up around the bend you might ask? Sex with animals? The argument would be the same that rages on for gay couples. “They are not hurting anyone; the animal seems happy and well cared for, what’s the big deal?” You scoff now, but so did other people scoff at gay rights activists just 25 years ago.
Sex with Robots?
How about marriage between humans and robots? It’s a known fact among scientists that computers will become conscience, self aware thinking beings within the next 20 years or less. Technology is rapidly increasing in the field of robotics. There are already programs for machines in existence that can self replicate and build its own upgrade replacement. With each new generation, which in machine time can be as little as one day, each new machine is better and more advanced than the one that built it.
They are making bodies for these newly developing electronic minds. Google Hanson Robotics and read up, then search on YouTube. It is truly amazing. Their slogan is: “We Bring Robots to Life.” Their Mission Statement: “Hanson Robotics was founded in late 2003 to awaken intelligent robotic beings, grant them sparks of true consciousness and creativity, and distribute these beings and their constituent technologies into the world.”
And now there’s the Real Doll. A life sized sex doll. Soon to have a fully functional AI brain that can talk and respond as if it were human. In 25-50 years I predict that computers will be conscience and self aware in human looking android type bodies. And they will walk among us as socially accepted members of our society.
Then the question will arise, as conscience beings, should they have the same basic rights that humans enjoy? The answer will probably be yes. And if they have rights, then shouldn’t they be allowed to marry each other? Probably yes. And reproduce progeny of their own? Yup. Next comes interracial human robot relationships and marriage.
This is our grim future unless we WAKE UP and make big changes right now!
Sex with children, animals and maybe even robots may seem weird and wrong now, by today’s standards… but what about tomorrow’s standards. What about self mutilation, human sacrifice and many other deviant behaviors that decency prohibits me to mention here?
Other cultures in history have embraced all these and more as socially acceptable, in some cases even demanded by law. And where are those cultures now? All have fallen. Think about it. In the holy bible it says, “For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life”. Matthew 7:13-14
So it’s time we as a nation get off the highway of immorality and back onto the road to God. It’s for our own good, for the future of our society and more importantly, for the good and safe well being of our children.
