The essay by Scott Lively gives you a view of the history of Nazism that nobody speaks
much of these days. However, is it possible that these times of homosexual brutality
and intolerance are returning? Maybe, if we consider that power can manifest itself in
many different ways. When Nazism arose it was a combination of physical and
"man" power. Its equivalent today, considering that it is a combination of
political and "legal" power, may be far more devastating. By
"legal" power I'm referring to the domination and control of our society by
forces who play a large role in getting our laws changed and in controlling society
through human rights commissions and human rights tribunals that are dominated by
The more things change, the more they seem the same. It is fascinating to see the
similarities between the tactics used by the early Nazis and those used by today's
An important aspect of the teaching of history is that it imbues students with a sense
of direction of the evolution of our society. Knowing something about history will tell us
something about trends in social evolution. It will tell us from where we came, what
direction our social evolution is taking, and how far we have come on the road to ultimate
bliss (or chaos). No wonder the forces ramming social studies down our throats are
so intent on eliminating all objective teaching of history.1
The sad part of it is that they have succeeded.
Consider the parallels between the agenda of the Nazis and those of today's modern
From Scott Lively's essay:
"By the time the Nazis came to power, "Bible-believing" Christians, (the
Confessing Church) were a small minority. As Grunberger asserts, Nazism itself was a
"pseudo-religion" (ibid.:79) that competed, in a sense, with Christianity and
The schools were heavily targeted in order to de-Christianize the young. Mandatory
prayer in schools was stopped in 1935, and from 1941 onward, religious instruction was
completely eliminated for all students over 14 years old (ibid.:494f). The Nazi Teachers
Association actively discouraged its members from taking religious instruction, while at
the same time many teachers of religious studies (who were all required to be licensed by
the state) "inculcated neo-paganism into their pupils during periods of religious
instruction." Later, teachers were outright prohibited from attending voluntary
religion classes organized by the Catholic church (ibid.:495).
From the early years, leading Nazis openly attacked Christianity. Joseph Goebbels
declared that "Christianity has infused our erotic attitudes with dishonesty"
(Taylor:20). It is in this campaign against Judeo- Christian morality that we find the
reason for the German people's acceptance of Nazism's most extreme atrocities. Their
religious foundations had been systematically eroded over a period of decades by powerful
social forces. By the time the Nazis came to power, German culture was spiritually
bankrupt. Too often, historians have largely ignored the spiritual element of Nazi
history; but if we look closely at Hitler's campaign of extermination of the Jews, it
becomes clear that his ostensive racial motive obscures a deeper and more primal hatred of
the Jews as the "People of God."
The probable reason for Hitler's attack on Christianity was his perception that it
alone had the moral authority to stop the Nazi movement. But Christians stumbled before
the flood of evil. As Poliakov notes, "[W]hen moral barriers collapsed under the
impact of Nazi preaching...the same anti-Semitic movement that led to the slaughter of the
Jews gave scope and license to an obscene revolt against God and the moral law. An open
and implacable war was declared on the Christian tradition...[which unleashed] a frenzied
and unavowed hatred of Christ and the Ten Commandments" (Poliakov:300). "
Aren't identical forces at work today? Haven't they to the same extent caused
today's spiritual bankruptcy?

New manual tells police: don't call gays and lesbians 'homosexual'
By Ian Burrell Home Affairs Correspondent
Scotland Yard plans to instruct all its police officers not to refer to gays and
lesbians as homosexual because it "criminalises" them.
New guidelines, to be circulated to 35,000 Metropolitan Police officers and civilian
staff next month, call for the use of "sensitive and appropriate language" when
dealing with gay men, lesbians and bisexuals, transsexuals and transvestites.
The Policing Diversity Handbook which was launched last year and is about to
undergo its second edition says: "Homosexual [is] a medical term used to
criminalise lesbians, gay men and bisexuals (LGB) in the nineteenth century. The term
should generally be avoided, although some older LGB people may describe themselves in
The Yard tells police officers to "question and challenge wherever possible"
the "myths and stereotypes" around gay communities. These include the suggestion
that lesbians are masculine and that gay men are effeminate.
The document, which took a year of delicate negotiations to write, states:
"The reality is that LGB people express their femininity or masculinity no
differently to heterosexual men and women."
The guidelines also challenge the "common myths" that children brought up by
parents of the same sex are disadvantaged, and that gay men are more likely than the rest
of the population to be HIV-positive. "The reality is that infection rates of HIV are
higher among the heterosexual community than among the gay community" it says.
The handbook will also have a section on transsexuals and transvestites. It says:
"We must ensure that we treat transvestites and transsexuals with the same respect
and dignity as any other member of the public." Scotland Yard is creating a category
of hate crime, "transphobic crime", to cover offences against transgender people.
Gay rights groups and gay police officers praised the guidelines. Paul Cahill, the
chairman of the Lesbian and Gay Police Association, which has 600 members nationwide,
said: "We are very happy with the document and its content. Its very existence is a
Linda Bellos, who jointly chairs the Yard's advisory group on gay and transgender
issues, said the "invaluable" document was evidence of the improvement in
relations between police and gay communities.
|Of course the term "homosexual" was used to
label homosexuals. Homosexuality was, after all, a criminal act, not merely in the
19th century but well into the second half of the 20th century in most, if not all,
Western nations. The term was an invention by homosexuals, created for precisely no
other reason than to remove the criminal connotations from people afflicted with same-sex
inclinations, for which at the time terms such as sodomites, pederasts and
"Knabenschänder" (defiler of boys) were used. The term homosexual was
coined by a "German-Hungarian writer named Benkert (under the pseudonym, Karoly Maria
Kertbeny)...in an anonymous open letter to the Prussian Minister of Justice in 1869."
