    Native activists demand stronger HIV/AIDS fight

    The above article provides one of many illustrations of today’s ideology of socialist sex, which is a view about sex which privatizes the pleasure and socializes the cost.

    This simply means the right to engage in whatever sexual activity one wants with the expectation that the state will extort (tax) money from responsible citizens to cover the cost of perverted, economically irresponsible behavior. This is theft-based – or socialist – sex. It is morally depraved on several levels. It is also dangerous and socially destructive.

    There’s no such thing as “social conservativism.” One is either comprehensively “conservative” or comprehensively socialistic (humanistic) or intellectually incoherent. Perverse sexuality – sexual intimacy outside of marriage – socialist economics and centralized governmental models are all part of the same worldview.

    Those who have a civilized view of sexuality, and a Biblical understanding of the family repudiate tyranny and the encroaching of the state on parental government, freedoms and private property. With a culture of intact families, a suffocating social welfare state is unnecessary to assist the poor.

    Would you be willing to sacrifice Canada’s socialist medical system in its entirety if that was the necessary price to pay to end taxpayer funding for abortion and the treatment of “lifestyle” sexual diseases (e.g., HIV/AIDS)? Christians who are economic or governmental leftists undermine their efforts on behalf of “social conservative” convictions and policies. Such Christians cannot talk about socialist sex because doing so would expose the incoherence in their own views. The number of socialist-sympathetic Christians in our day is one of the biggest reasons why we aren’t making headway in Canada – and the U.S. and elsewhere – for social conservative causes.
