How do you undermine a nation’s moral structure? It can be as simple as a television commercial. It seems that corporate bullies will spare no effort or expense to please the homosexual community. Paper products giant, Kimberly-Clark has begun airing a new TV ad for its Cottonelle bathroom tissue, which serves that purpose.
In typically graphic face-slapping style, the commercial shows the seamed side of a peach—selected for its similarity to a human backside—being wiped to demonstrate how to use the product. This no doubt arouses the obsession of its target audience. The final scene shows two men, one behind the other. The announcer then advises viewers to make sure that your partner is clean before you take him home to meet your mother.
Many large corporations like Kimberly-Clark now demand adherence to the alternative values of “diversity and inclusion,” but it’s a disingenuous public relations claim. Like social media platforms, these corporations now forbid open opposition to the grave sins of homosexuality and trangenderism, while claiming an honorable moral imperative for doing so.
Herein is a classic example of how insidious false implications are being imposed by compulsion. It’s a form of tyranny that chips away at the bedrock principle of America’s foundation—freedom of conscience. In a real sense, godless corporate heads are forcing compliance with their secular humanist religion.
In Ernest Hemmingway’s The Sun Also Rises, Bill asks, “How did you go bankrupt?”
“Two ways,” Mike replies. “Gradually, then suddenly.” So it has been with the moral bankruptcy in the United States.
The movement in this direction began with LGBTQ activist groups, GLAAD, GLSEN and the Gay and Lesbian Task Force. Activists forced Hollywood to adopt their agenda to show homosexuals and lesbians in a positive light. Since media liberals lacked stable moral standards already, it was an easy victory.
Next, LGBTQ thugs invaded the political arena. Working behind the scenes, they found sympathetic ears in the Democrat National Committee. Democrats have been eager to accommodate the alternative values of radical homosexuals for their ability to turnout Democrat voters.
Now, major corporations seeking to curry favor with sophisticated marketing professionals, Hollywood celebrities, Democrat politicians and media executives, are folding like cheap suits. For those few who resisted, the same sort of bullying tactics employed by community rabble-rousers, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Barack Hussein Obama to compel banks to write junk loans to unqualified clients (which led to the mortgage industry collapse of 2008) were used against opponents of LGBTQ radicals—threats of lawsuits and protests.
Why would a large corporation like Kimberly-Clark risk offending 95% of its customer base in order to ingratiate itself to the less than 5% that is engaged in sexual debauchery? Corporate attorneys have convinced boards of directors that it’s easier and cheaper to comply with the militant LGBTQ fanatics that to deal with the threats and potentially-negative publicity. They know that is very little risk that Christians and conservatives—who spend most of their time working, paying taxes and raising families—will hold them accountable for promoting sin.
In many places, Judeo-Christian morality is being replaced by alternative secular values. The chief of these fake values is acceptance of the very grave sins of abortion and homosexuality. Truth is being replaced by emotivism as a fundamental basis for them.
America has been disassembled two ways. Gradually, then suddenly. And it’s the scheme that will be used by the world’s final dictator to gain power over all mankind.
The United States has been at such a crossroad before. During the Civil War period, President Abraham Lincoln said that America could not remain so divided. He believed that the nation would become all on thing or all the other; slave or free. Our most deadly war followed President Lincoln’s prophetic declaration.An immoral nation is a weak nation that cannot long endure. The same choice faces America; slave or free. May we this time, take a different path.
