Don't change our morality

  • Follow Letters

The Augusta Chronicle has done an admirable job of presenting the issues on the Jerry Sandusky situation. I have not seen, however, a discussion of how close Augusta is not only to exonerating him, but honoring him as one of an avant-garde morality.

Penn State and other universities are working hard to change morality, and where morality is changed, laws change as well. Look where we are with homosexual marriage!

Penn State offers courses that promote the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Alliance, such as “Introduction to Lesbian and Gay Studies,” “Straight Talks I: Advanced Sexual Orientation/Gender Identity Peer Education,” and “Sexuality and Modern Visual Culture.” It also has the LGBTA Student Resource Center.

Penn State has only reaped what it has sown. Will Augusta State University? Will Georgia Health Sciences University? Will Augusta? Some Augusta State officials laughed at the ridiculous “publicity stunt” of Jennifer Keeton – who claimed ASU ordered her to alter her religious views on homosexuality – but acceptance of homosexuality is just one step toward acceptance of pederasty. Psychiatrists at GHSU teach the normality of homosexuality according to the standards of the American Psychiatric Association. The city of Augusta has allowed an annual gay pride parade (I do not buy that the “law” could not prevent its acceptance).

And the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA)? It is clear on its agenda. Its members want American morality changed and will want the laws against “man/boy love” changed as well.

I challenge The Chronicle to direct their outrage to our local officials and institutions promoting the NAMBLA agenda by their promotion of the homosexual agenda. To ignore our local promotion of morality that led to the Penn State situation is to be hypocritical in the extreme. Will we dare to criticize institutions that are “profitable” for the community? If not, in a few years you will have no basis for moral outrage because man/boy love will be both moral and legal.

Ed Payne, M.D.

response part 2 didn't get it all in

(Unchristianlike and when have you been confronted with a big mouthed gay – I haven’t and I bet you haven’t either)

“but acceptance of homosexuality is just one step toward acceptance of pederasty.” (Disgusting)

The writer states Penn State is tolerant to gays, and they reaped what they sowed. (Appalling and unchristianlike)

Dr. Payne wrote an excellent letter. Articulate, insightful, and right on the money. = I find it amazing you as a Christian feel this way.

Noman, I think you need to go

Noman, I think you need to go back to my comments because your accussation in your last statement cannot be credited to me. I believe Harley made this statement, so I would appreciate it if you wouldn't post false information.

As I stated in my first post, "I'm curious.....what exactly has Dr. Payne posted that is not true? (okay, 'acceptance of homosexuality is just one step toward acceptance of pederasty" may be seem a bit over the top but it's one man's opinion and could be viewed as true) Does "Penn State offers courses that promote the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Alliance"? Does "Psychiatrists at GHSU teach the normality of homosexuality according to the standards of the American Psychiatric Association"? Is it not clear what the agenda of NAMBLA is? According to their own website "It’s the love of a man for a boy, and of a boy for a man. Enjoyable, consensual, beautiful." Are there really people that see nothing wrong with this?

In years past it was once viewed as immoral to be homosexual, today it is glorified. Isn't it just as possible for one day in the near future for man/boy love to also be accepted and glorified? "

No I haven't ever been confronted with a "big mouthed" gay but that is not to say the poster that made this commen, hasn't. I have seen some homosexuals make a public spectical of themselves. Do you know for a fact, the person that made this comment is a Christian? or did you just assumed he/she was because of their comment.

Just as you have stated your opinon based on what your beliefs are, others on here have stated theirs. After all, it is an opinion page. This isn’t being unchristian like, it’s called freedom of speech. I don't think Dr. Paynes has personally directed his comments at anyone in particular, just venting his opinon.
