Slippery Slope

To Whom It May Concern;
The following is based on an article from Crisis Catholic magazine by Mark P. Shea.,
he puts to words, something that I have been saying all along.
That being, "Someday someone is going to 'lobby' for the legality of child sex or what so many Americans (rightfully so) are in an uproar about in The Catholic Church scandals.

"Men do not differ much about what things they will call evils,
they will differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable."
(G. K. Chesterton) (

Different ideologies have different ways of effecting what in Catholic Church theology or the Bible calls mortal sin. Those people trying to follow a moral code laid out
in their lives through study of theology, The Bible and the hard knocks of life are familiar with the manipulations of "Truth" from the 'far left'. There are those who would have us believe any 'perversion' that is pushed as 'normalcy' by a group, should, first of all be heard out and then for the slightest of reasons made into law.
And so the old saying; "The road to hell is paved with 'good intentions'."
Meaning that just because society wants to treat any minority group fairly we have to accept any idiocy they present to the world as 'gospel truth' or 'fact'.

(The following is from the article by Mr. Mark Shea.)
"And now according to Lifesite News (, that very same ethos has made it possible for Richard Yuill to be awarded a doctorate degree from Glasgow University for arguing in his doctoral thesis that sex between children and adults is
sometimes a positive experience for the children.
The reason a moral cretin like Yuill can now be taken seriously in the leftist academy is actually quite simple: Once you embrace one form of sexual sin on the basis that
morality is subjective or that the ends justify the means your own flawed logic demands that you support whatever fresh perversion rounds the bend. After all, if you try to tell
Dr. Yuill that he's advocating a violation of the immemorial moral code of humanity you stand in grave danger of having your recently legitimized sexual sin called back."
Mark P. Shea, Crisis magazine "Toying With Evil"

This is what The Catholic Church has been referring to all along when they talk of immorality being a "slippery slope". Once you are on the slope, once you allow any form of perversion, such as abortion, as the norm, it is much easier to slide down. It is almost impossible to slide up or even remain where you are.

It may take 10 years, but if we allow same sex marriages, someone will petition the courts to marry their dog or cat! And you know how many animal lovers we have in the United States? It might no longer be a minority asking for the ridiculous or harmful.
