Are Americans playing around with the end of civilization?
Forget socialism and inflation; something else is already causing society to

For a long time it was an article of faith among Christians, conservatives
and other traditionalists: They believed that when homosexuality becomes
widely accepted and even celebrated in a society, that society starts to die.

But such a notion, at least according to today's secular progressive culture,
is worse than a bad joke. It's bigoted. It's paranoid. It's insane.

Or is it?

The November issue of WND's monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled "AMERICA'S
GAY OBSESSION," says it's not only not bigoted, paranoid or insane, but it's
absolutely historically true -- and moreover, is where America is rapidly
heading unless it reverses course.

Here's how one article from the issue, "The end-of-civilization question" by
Brian Fitzpatrick, starts off:

    Most societies throughout history, even the wealthiest and mightiest,
have eventually collapsed and died. Why?

    Why don't they just continue to evolve and flourish forever as their
knowledge and technology grow? What allows some cultures to continually
bloom, and others to wither?

    This question -- normally one of mere historical and academic concern -- is
increasingly relevant to millions of Americans as they behold their beloved
nation struggling in the grip of unprecedented financial, political, cultural
and moral conflict.

    Indeed, many are warning that America is not immune to the forces and
influences that have caused other great empires to self-destruct.

    In particular, traditional-minded voices point to the rapid growth in
America of homosexuality -- not only its prevalence, but its virtual
celebration -- as eerily reminiscent of Sodom and Gomorrah, the ancient cities
whose destruction due to rampant immorality is described in the Old Testament
of the Bible.

    From the time of this nation's founding all the way up until the current
era, mainstream Americans held the Bible to be their ultimate guidebook, and
the "Judeo-Christian values" it espoused as their highest principles.

    Today, however -- especially throughout the elite realms of academia,
science, government and the news and entertainment media -- the Bible no
longer retains the stature and universal credibility it once did. In its
place, we listen to sociologists, scientists and other researchers and "experts."

    But what if the findings of "experts" -- not necessarily those in thrall
to irrational socialistic and atheistic philosophies, but those more in sync
with the basic values that founded America and Western Civilization as a
whole -- lined up perfectly with those of the Bible?

    Such would present a powerful message -- and warning -- to the current
generation of Americans, particularly regarding the dangers of sexual anarchy
and homosexuality.

This is precisely the warning being sounded in the pages of "AMERICA'S 'GAY'

(Story continues below)

>From the time of this nation's founding up until the current era, most
Americans held the Bible to be their ultimate guidebook and took very
seriously the clear biblical teachings of people like the Apostle Paul who
warned in Romans 1:18-32 (that's the passage Obama once publicly ridiculed as
an "obscure passage in Romans") that societies perish when they fall to
widespread sexual immorality. In one of the most supremely politically
incorrect statements of all time, Paul condemns men who, "leaving the natural
use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men
working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence
of their error which was meet." The further they turn away from God, their
"debased minds," "vile passions" and other sins become so bad that God
eventually judges them and they are destroyed, writes Paul.

"Whoa!" many might say. "Isn't that just a bunch of superstitious,
judgmental, dead-white-man talk that no one takes seriously anymore?"
Depending on the reader's worldview, such biblical warnings are an ancient
and malevolent fairy tale, or else they resonate as strongly worded truth.

But as this astonishing issue of Whistleblower carefully documents, the
findings of the world's greatest researchers of cultural decline are
strikingly parallel to the Bible's.

Whistleblower's exploration of "The end-of-civilization question" cites
undisputed world-class authorities, from famous historian Arnold Toynbee to
groundbreaking anthropologist J.D. Unwin, from the great Austrian economist
Joseph Schumpeter to Presidential Medal of Freedom-winning historian Will
Durant, author of the 11-volume series "The Story of Civilization," and many

"Perhaps the definitive work on the rise and fall of civilizations," writes
Fitzpatrick, "was published in 1934 by Oxford anthropologist J.D. Unwin":

    In "Sex and Culture," Unwin studied 86 human civilizations ranging from
tiny South Sea island principalities to mighty Rome. He found that a
society's destiny is linked inseparably to the limits it imposes on sexual
expression and that those sexual constraints correlate directly to its
theological sophistication and religious commitment.

    Unwin noted that the most primitive societies had only rudimentary
spiritual beliefs and virtually no restrictions on sexual expression, whereas
societies with more sophisticated theologies placed greater restrictions on
sexual expression, and achieved greater social development.

    In particular, cultures that adopt what Unwin dubbed "absolute monogamy"
proved to be the most vigorous, economically productive, artistically
creative, scientifically innovative and geographically expansive societies on

"The end-of-civilization question" is just one of a dozen groundbreaking
explorations of sexuality in America to be found in November's Whistleblower.
