Just go back in time to the period of King James the 1st of England in the 1600s.
Strong evidence exists for a homosexual relationship between George Villiers (Duke of Buckingham) and King James. Please read the link for more information about the various intrigues of that era.
The things James and Buckingham did to thwart either threats to privilege or economic and political interests have all the makings of a visual blockbuster movie.
As juicy sample follows:
Villiers gained support from those opposed to the current favourite, Robert Carr, 1st Earl of Somerset, and under the King's patronage he prospered greatly. Villiers was knighted in 1615 as a Gentleman of the Bedchamber, and was rapidly advanced through the peerage: he was created Baron Whaddon and Viscount Villiers in 1616, Earl of Buckingham in 1617, Marquess of Buckingham in 1618 and finally Earl of Coventry and Duke of Buckingham in 1623.
Once the King (James) dissolved parliament. Gay relationship to the king......rapid advancement of prestige, position and power... protected by the king from his nefarious and greedy econonomic interests, his monopolies in Ireland etc being exposed..
It all comes back to the "Gentleman of the bed chamber" (can you believe this???) relationship with the King.
With all this in mind, one can better understand the antics of Paul Keating who blatently disregarded the Law of Australia in protecting one Sheikh Hilale from being deported, to keep the Muslims of Lakemba happy during a time of political storm clouds and a doubtful federal election.
I'm not implying any 'bedchamber' relationship in that case, but I am definitely hinting at "protection of economic and political interests".
Look at the open campaiging by homosexual former High Court Judge Michael Kirby for law reform which will benefit homosexuals. Look at the unbelievable deviant activities of the late former Justice David Yeldham who protected paedophiles, indulged in homosexual romps and well....read for yourself.
So Villiers, Duke of Buckingham is the 'old'....Yeldham is the 'new'...but it's all the same old same old... vice, corruption, sin, degradation.....
"All have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God" Rom 3:23
"Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them."(Rom 1:32)
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.(Rom 1:26ff)
Same old sin, same great solution. Renewal and forgiveness in Christ. Sadly, once people descend to the depths of the likes of David Yeldham, there is little hope of redemption, as his life demonstrated in his committing suicide rather than facing up to his corrupt behavior in the public gaze.
There is but a short leap from the practice of homosexuality to 'intergenerational sex' being destigmatized when you realize that one of the visiting fellows and associate lecturers of the University of Sydney's School of Public Health-Peter Trebilco had his first homosexual encounters with 'men' when he was just 11!
Peter Trebilco, Knox Grammarian 1938-49: "One did what are called beats. These are railway stations, public conveniences, parks, and there you met men and you had remarkably anonymous and quick sex, and then put that to one side, that was a part of your life, that for that day was now closed and you went back to whatever else it was that you wanted to do."
Q: And what stage in your life did you...?
A: I started doing that at the age of 11.
(The accuracy of this transcript has been independantly verified with Mr Trebilco)
So there you have it... a man with high responsibility in a "public health" faculty at a major university was a willing participant in NAMBLA advocated activities of adult/child sex! (NAMBLA= North American Man Boy Love Association)
Given than Nambla is an odious and loathed organization, one wonders why such a person as Mr Trebilco should be given such a position of public trust?
It is the opinion of this blog that Mr Trebilco epitomizes a serious challenge to our moral value system. How can Mr Trebilco challenge or oppose or even demonize the likes of Dennis Ferguson (infamous pedophile) when Mr Trebilco himself, on the public record began homosexual liasons in public toilets at the age of 11? He also has said "However, I believe that 11 year old young persons can make informed decisions and choices. provided there is absolutely no inducement of force."
But this is just a justification or rationalization of his own personal history, how could he denounce himself? If he cannot denounce himself or the persons with whom he had these 'anonymous experiences'...then how can he reasonably denounce the likes of Dennis Ferguson... and if there is a classroom situation where such issues arise, and with him as an educator, what will be the outcome?
Surely it is time for the community to raise it's voice about standards and moral position. None of us is perfect indeed, but no system of morality is dependent on the absolute perfection of those who advocate it. Society must still have an informed and definite foundation for it's existence and behavior.
If we do not, then we end up as Herbert Marcuse, (Marxist Social researcher and 'god' of the 60s counter culture), suggests in his book "Eros and Civilization" with a 'polymorphous perversity'..which in the opinion of this blog, would result in the absolute destruction of our whole social fabric and we would end up being but a set of empty buildings, empty of people, progressively invaded by the unrelenting bush/jungle, just as Machu Pichu in Peru is today.
"Imposing Morals" is the obvious next step. Yes.. it is absolutely incumbent on any society to 'impose' it's morality in the form of restrictions to behavior, if any behavior is believed to be a threat to the society itself.
Imagine if Freud and Marcuse's 'polymorphous perversity' had taken hold? Incest.. *tick*... Bisexuality *tick*... Bestiality *tick*.... and so it goes. But why not 'rape' *tick* ? aah.. there would be some kind of "harm" based rejection of this idea, but consider the harm done by Incest and bestiality???? Broader social harm is just as bad as individual harm, or perhaps even worse.
"Its time"....has a very contemporary ring to it.... to review our direction and perhaps a little more.
