The last taboo

the last taboo

“Societies are defined by what they will not permit,” said Tucker Carlson in his new show, “Tucker on Twitter.” These are called taboos. Taboos may not be illegal, says Carlson, but they’re not permitted.

Eight score and three years ago (163 years), the two political parties agreed on practically every taboo, but one.

They agreed that stealing was taboo. Same for murder, public fornication and nudity, child molestation, abortion, and sacrilege, to name a few.

They agreed on the deadliness and sinfulness of pride, greed, lust, anger, gluttony, envy, and sloth.

And they agreed on the philosophical underpinnings of the Bill of Rights.

But they clashed on the issue of slavery.

The pro-life party of our age viewed slavery as an abomination, a violation of human dignity, the Declaration of Independence, and the Holy Bible.

Today’s abortion party once viewed the Negro as something of a sub-human, unworthy of the protections of the U.S. Constitution.

A bloody Civil War that killed 700,000 soldiers and civilians provided a tenuous resolution to the conflict, establishing human slavery as taboo in American jurisprudence as well as the American culture.

For the next century, the two parties pretty much agreed on our national taboos, what America would not permit.

That changed in 1973 with the Roe v Wade decision.

The nation overwhelmingly agreed that human abortion was a societal taboo prior to 1973, as 46 states had laws on the books either banning or significantly limiting the availability of abortion.

The political landscape began a seismic shift with Roe, as a foundational taboo began to crumble.

The abortion party is born

Two years prior to Roe, Edward Kennedy, a leading member of what was once the Slavery Party, wrote eloquently in defense of human life in the womb:

“While the deep concern of a woman bearing an unwanted child merits consideration and sympathy, it is my personal feeling that the legalization of abortion on demand is not in accordance with the value which our civilization places on human life. Wanted or unwanted, I believe that human life, even at its earliest stages, has certain rights which must be recognized—the right to be born, the right to love, the right to grow old.

“On the question of the individual’s freedom of choice there are easily available birth control methods and information which women may employ to prevent or postpone pregnancy. But once life has begun, no matter at what stage of growth, it is my belief that termination should not be decided merely by desire.

“When history looks back to this era it should recognize this generation as one which cared about human beings enough to halt the practice of war, to provide a decent living for every family, and to fulfill its responsibility to its children from the very moment of conception.”

In a town hall meeting around that time, Kennedy’s opponent made the case for abortion rights (remember, this was pre Roe), and Kennedy literally screamed at him:
“Don’t tell me there isn’t enough love in the world to care for all the unwanted babies!”

He then went on to make the case for adoption.

Before decade’s end, Kennedy was fully committed to abortion rights, as was his party. The Slavery party had morphed into the Abortion Party.

A turning point

Roe v Wade marked a turning point. If a society is truly defined by what it will not permit, our definition was radically altered on January 22nd, 1973, as a major taboo crumbled.

Whereas the Anti-Slavery/Pro-Life Party of today continues to acknowledge the timeless taboos once embraced by both parties, the Abortion Party of today is no longer recognizable. In fact, they demand that we let go of the Judeo-Christian value system that not only defined the United States, but Western Civilization too, and replace it with a Woke theology.

Their views on what constitutes the seven deadly sins are unrecognizable to what they once believed. Same with the Bill of Rights.

A new, established state religion?

As Tucker Carlson said,
“What we are allowed to dislike is being dictated to us from above, sometimes by force: stealing, flaunting your wealth, striking women, smoking marijuana on the street, shameless public hypocrisy, taking another person’s money for not working … used to be considered unacceptable.”
These are no longer taboos under the Woke theology now embraced by the Abortion Party.
This theology tells us the unborn aren’t human; that a man isn’t a man if he says he isn’t; and that a woman isn’t a woman if she says she isn’t. And you must embrace their delusions or pay a price.
As horrific as the crumbling of societal taboos are, they don’t compare to the Woke religion’s gleeful embrace of anti-Catholic blasphemy, the last taboo.

The last taboo

You know the story: The Los Angeles Dodgers invited the anti-Catholic hate group, The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, to a ‘Pride’ event at Dodger Stadium. When Catholics protested, they disinvited the group. When trans activists protested, they quickly re-invited the group and will pay homage to their Woke religion on June 16th.

Bishop Robert Barron commented on the Dodger’s tolerance for blasphemy of the most repulsive kind in this video released on social media:

We won’t share videos of their blasphemies, but they are plentiful on YouTube, which has shown no inclination to de-platform them.

Although Pulse Life Advocates focuses on Life issues, the Woke religion promotes sexual confusion which impacts sanctity of Life issues.

Action steps

What should you do about all of this? Stand up for the Truth. Don’t despair. Pray. And boycott.

You’re not alone. As Bud Light, Target, and the Los Angeles Dodgers are discovering, the faithful are making their voices  heard and their prayers felt.

Friday is the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the Catholic church. It is also the day the Dodgers have chosen to honor the Catholic hate group, The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops asks you to pray an act of reparation for the blasphemies against our Lord that we see in our culture today.

The last taboo has been breached. Join us in prayer on Friday.
