Shaming the Virgin and Glorifying the Whore Is Not Progressive

Progressives believe they’re “progressing” society by loosening the shackles of “sexual moral norms”. But in reality, what they deem “progression” would be more accurately described as regression.

Progressives believe they’re “progressing” society by loosening the shackles of “sexual moral norms”. But in reality, what they deem “progression” would be more accurately described as regression.

Take, for instance, “progressive” attitudes towards sex. Chastity and abstinence were once considered qualities of virtue, even among non-Christians. But how quickly has “virginity” become a pejorative and derogatory term, as though it is something to be ashamed of.

But this is not a new or modern sentiment. Sexuality without limit or restraint was a characteristic of the cruel, barbaric pagan world that used, abused and exploited women. Much that was practised back then is now hailed as progress, freedom and sexual liberation.

Ironically, progressives label the Christian sexual ethic as “archaic” and “out-dated”, while propagating regression to a pre-Christian sexual ethic. In the fourth century, Augustine said, “Man’s wickedness is now such that men are more ashamed of chastity than of lust.”

He continues: “Murderers, thieves, perjurers, false witnesses, plunderers and fraudsters are detested and hated by people generally, but whoever sleeps with his servant girl in brazen lechery is liked and admired for it, and people make light of the damage to his soul.

“If any man has the nerve to say that he is chaste and faithful to his wife and this gets known, he is ashamed to mix with other men whose behaviour is not like his, for they will mock him and despise him and say he’s not a real man…

“For man’s wickedness is now of such proportions that no one is considered a man unless he is overcome by lechery, while one who overcomes lechery and stays chaste is considered unmanly.”

Indeed, there is nothing new under the sun.
