Did you read Matt Barber’s column on our website on Monday? It was about Alfred Kinsey and his “experiments” which defined the sexual revolution.
It’s not for the squeamish.
After I read about Kinsey’s experiments, which were nothing short of criminal, I got yet another glimmer of hope in our fallen world.
One of the Duggar children from TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” is courting.
Josiah,18, just introduced the world to his girlfriend, 17-year-old Marjorie Jackson.
The young couple is “courting.” They explained that is dating with a purpose. They want to get to know each other, ask tough questions and get answers about each other before they decide to get married.
The fresh faced youths excitedly talked about this method of dating. Josiah, when he be-bopped into the video made a point of respecting Marjorie by very carefully not touching her.
It was so sweet, so loving and kind. These people value themselves. They understand that their lives have meaning and a purpose.
The behavior of Josiah and Marjorie stands in stark contrast to the disgusting images that we have seen recently of spring break beach parties. The idea of that kind of sexual “freedom” was launched by the despicable “research” of Kinsey.
The idea in the 1960s was that sins of the body don’t hurt anyone, so that makes them ok. That is when hippie “free love” and drug use came into popularity. “Hey, man, I ain’t hurting no one!”
Of course, we now know that sins of the body actually do hurt a lot of people.
So, are we experiencing the rise of a new kind of radical? This radical has the audacity to believe that he or she is special, uniquely created by a benevolent God and, as such, should respect him or herself.
Maybe, at least, it gave me a glimmer of hope.
