The Sexual Revolution Has Increased Sex Crimes And Indiscretions

Trashed BibleHere in Patriot Nation, mere weeks after riding in a Duck Boat parade through Boston celebrating a sixth Super Bowl victory, team owner Bob Kraft has been charged with soliciting sex in a Florida massage spa. Despite my dislike of the Pats (I remain a 49er Faithful), I sincerely hope he’ll be tried fairly and proven innocent.

Nevertheless, this latest sex scandal makes me wonder about American sensibilities. Why do the very people who applaud the sexual revolution in all its various forms suddenly take the moral high ground when Bill Cosby, Kevin Spacey and now Bob Kraft have simply acted on impulses that psychology, Oprah and Hollywood has told them not to deny?

Please don’t bother me with arguments about consensual sex. All three of the men mentioned above claim that the sex indeed was consensual. Maybe they honestly believe that to be the case. Since I didn’t personally witness any of the encounters, I don’t know the truth. Neither do you. For the purposes of this article, let’s take the question of consent off the table in order to look at the prevailing attitude toward sex in our culture.

For nearly four decades now, psychologists, the media and Hollywood have relentlessly bombarded us with the message to cast aside our inhibitions. They tell us we’re nothing more than highly evolved animals. They chant, “If it feels good,do it.” They teach public school children how to avoid pregnancy and STDs without practicing abstinence. And they work hard — very hard — to normalize homosexuality.

Suppose, then, that soliciting sex from victims of a sex trafficking ring felt good to Bob Kraft. Here he was on the eve of his team’s sixth Super Bowl victory, wanting to celebrate his power as the owner of the most impressive team in NFL history. What happened at the message parlor felt good. And he simply followed the mantra: “If it feels good,do it.”

Should proponents of sexual freedom condemn him? If so, on what moral ground? Haven’t they invested time, money and tremendous effort into convincing Western culture to dispense with Biblical morality and let everyone do what’s right in their own eyes?

You see, when a society takes the Lord out of the equation by rejecting His standards for human sexuality, it has an awfully hard time coming up with a replacement standard. If it argues that sex must be consensual, it should explain why sex should be consensual.  What constitutes its moral authority? And can that moral authority change over time? If not, why not?

If Kraft really did what investigators allege he did, I in no way justly his actions. As a widower, he should remain celibate unless and until he remarries. But since he evidently places himself outside the rule of Christ, shouldn’t we expect him to follow the natural implications of the sexual revolution?

  1. I have said this for years! How can the very same people who say “if it feels good, do it” be shocked and horrified when people do what feels good?

  2. Amen! I’ve had this same though often. It seems especially hypocritical when criticism comes from the direction of Hollywood. They have filled the world’s mind with these anti-biblical, evil ideas and then want to shout NO when something isn’t “right”. But how do they know what is and isn’t right? What are they basing it on?? So many people think that they can promote the idea that there aren’t any rules or morals (sexual or otherwise) and then suddenly decide there are some…But what exactly are they basing this judgment upon?? Oh, it’s all so illogical….
