Too many people belive it and it is really starting to negatively impact public policy and is starting to corrupt the great nation of the United States of America.

This lie is pernicious and is partly responsible for good people laying down and not doing anything to stop the flood of filth and exhibitionism that is present in society today.  It doesn’t help things when the U.S. Supreme Court has supported and pushed this lie on us as well so that the people who continue to push the lie have more credibility because after all the Supreme Court agrees and now we all have to live with the effects of believing the lie.  

There are many big lies we live with every day.  This is because good and decent people, well over 90% of the population have a difficult time countenancing that people would purposely lie on a scale so big.  As explained by Hitler (who was himself no stranger to lying and the art of political manipulation of the dumb masses) in Mein Kampf via Wiki:

… in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.

And so it goes.  Decent people who are trying to be good and decent people are subject to manipulation by big lies precisely because they are good and decent people who automatically give credence to these big lies simply because they would not lie like that so therefore there must be some truth in it.  What a pernicious truth to have to live with.

The big lie at the center of this post today is the lie about third party harm.  We have been fed great big shovelfuls of this lie, that someone can do somthing completely harmful and wrong, but that it hurts no one else so we should not legislate or do anything about the problem.  It is the claim that “I am not hurting anyone else” or that what someone is doing is not hurting anyone else.

This lie has been used for many years with regard to drug use and alcoholism and people have mostly seen through it now and do not give it the kind of weight that the lie used to have when applied to drug use and alcoholism.  That is the good news.

The problem is that we as a society are fully in the grip of this lie when it comes to issues of abortion and homosexual activity.  We are told day in and day out that abortion is a woman’s choice to do what she wants with her body.  It is her body and it is her decision.  The law says that is true, but the law has enshrined a lie and has made the right to an abortion more important that the right of free speech.

According to Star Parker, a pastor was convicted recently for peacably demostrating against abortion too close to an abortion clinic.  There are laws that say protestors, no matter how peaceful, are not allowed too close to abortion clinics because they may somehow inhibit the right of women to kill their unborn children <sarcasm> which is very clearly spelled out in the Constitution of the United States of America, a document drafted by conservative Christian white males and approved by a largely Christian nation at ratifying conventions.  Good thing Roe v. Wade was here to remind us of these forgotten fundamental rights enshrined by our central governing document! </sarcasm>

There are third party harms from abortion.  The father has no choice, the unborn are murdered, the mother often has regret for the rest of her life, and the value of life is severly diminished.  Sometimes a person is even convicted of a double murder for helping his girlfriend have an abortion by stepping on her stomach.  She goes free, he does hard time in prison.  There is something seriously wrong with this picture.  It is also another face for new age eugenics where most of the abortions are performed on poor black women.  It is a sanitized way of getting rid of the undesireables, so to speak.

There are third party harms to homosexual activity.  It is an unnatural act that in males is symbolic of self hatred and was inspired by Satan.  Adoption by gay couples puts difficulties and strains on the children that are unnecessary and burdensome.  Two people who are regularly sinning in a big way in their private lives will adversely affect the lives of the children.  It also shortens your life expectancy to live the homosexual lifestyle.

What brings this to mind is that 47% people in the great State of Utah, according to a poll in the Deseret News, support the idea of gay civil unions.  This is giving official sanction to a sinful and inappropriate relationship.  To say that the state has no business in people’s bedrooms is not entirely accurate.  We prosecute child abuse, child pornography, statutory rape, rape, marital rape, and other crimes that happen behind closed doors.  To simply dismiss this on the basis that it is between consenting adults will not do.  We have decided that euthanasia is a bad thing and punishable by law as well.  

We need to cast of the big lie.  There are real costs and real problems with homosexual activity and by giving it official sanction as an acceptable choice will harm the public morals and sense of what is right.

Fight back against the big lie by fighting the causes it is supporting.
