“I’ve become more accepting of porn.”
This was the accomplishment of Pasadena College. They offered an entire class on porn. Students had to watch porn in the classroom. They had to watch it as part of their homework.
In one scene, which the kids watched in their classroom together, women were called “bitch,” “whore,” and worse.
A female student shared her experience:
“My view of pornography before taking this class was more the traditional view that it was not meant for me, as a woman… After, or in the midst of taking this class, I’ve become much more accepting of it and understanding of it.”
In another triumph of higher education, another student becomes desensitized to filth.
The degradation of women is common on college campuses, according to Nathan Harden, author of Sex and God at Yale: Porn, Political Correctness, and a Good Education Gone Bad, as LifeSiteNews reported:
He exposed how Yale women are constantly degraded on campus. They are valued for their looks, bodies, and sexual prowess – not their minds. They are often required to watch hardcore porn in class and encouraged to participate in “porn star lookalike” contests during “Sex Week,” the biggest event of the year.
Taking a cue from college campuses, the Obama Federal Communications Commission (FCC) wants to lower decency standards even lower for prime time television. They want to allow more nudity and profanity on air at a time when children are watching.
Watch for full frontal female nudity and F-bombs. The pushback from parent groups opposing the FCC’s embrace of indecency is fierce. Are these parents fuddy duddies? Perhaps the FCC is merely grooming our youth to become good, solid consumers of porn at an even younger age.
Just when discouragement sets in over this sad state of affairs, along comes actor Jim Caviezel to give us renewed hope in humanity.
You remember Mr. Caviezel’s stunning performance in Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ.” He earns his living in a culture that embraces human abortion, so-called same-sex marriage, and loose living.
He rises it above it.
He is a proud Catholic, and he is proudly pro-life. He puts his faith and pro-life credentials into action, too.
He and his wife, Kerri, have adopted two special needs children from China.
Both children, Bo and Lynn, had brain tumors. Although the Caviezels had been offered healthy babies, they took these five year old kids because they knew their odds of being adopted were slight.
Mr. Caviezel said he didn’t think he could love an adopted child as much as his own natural child. He was wrong:
“Even though they’re adopted, it’s as strong as any instinct. That’s what blew me away. I always thought if I adopted that I wouldn’t have the same feeling [as I would] if they were genetically my own children. Nothing could be further from the truth.”
In my little world, I know a ton of Jim Caviezels. Some may even be reading this post.
Not everyone is cut out to adopt, but I am witnessing on a daily basis good people doing good things. I see them do tiny, little things that add up. I see them changing the world one prayer and one smile at a time.
I have tremendous hope for the world when I realize how many Jim and Kerry Caviezels are walking around in our midst.
We simply need to get more of them working at our universities and the FCC.
