The Contraception Perversion:

The Root Cause of All Other Forms of Sexual Perversion.

Every form of sexual perversion is rooted in the original perversion of Artificial Contraception.

Vic Biorseth, OWM; Saturday, January 25, 2014
https://www.catholicamericanthinker.com

A long time ago, seemingly in another galaxy, I wrote, in the Artificial Contraception webpage, that moral acceptance of artificial contraception marked the single most significant historical turning point precipitating the radical decline of all of Western Civilization, taking America along with it.  That may have been the most accurate statement I ever wrote.  Once a proper sense of morality collapses, a social order begins the descent into an increasing social disorder, and if it is not corrected, it ends in chaos, nonsense and even insanity.  That is true for the individual citizen, and it is true for the larger culture. 

What spurred these thoughts, strangely enough, was a sudden bout of illness that took me completely out of action for about three days.  That's a pretty big deal, because I don't generally get sick, and I never get sick enough to not work.  It all had to do with my sense of balance, uprightness, steadiness and so forth.  What it made me realize was that, when something happens that interferes with your natural "knowledge" of the directions down, and up, you no longer can trust your eyes and senses to tell you the proper direction to anywhere at all.  You lose all proper sense of orientation in your room, in your house and in the world. 

It turned out to be an inner-ear problem that caused a sudden attack of vertigo, severe the first day, coming and going in waves.  It was mild the second day (when I went to the local VA hospital for treatment) and still milder the third day.  After that, as long as I remembered to stand up slowly, it very nearly vanished.  It was problematic, because I drive for a living.  The medicine they gave me was for only when symptoms were present, and if you took the pill, you were not to drive.  So - can't drive with the symptoms, and, can't drive after taking the medicine.  I was stuck. 

Just as a side note, the care I received from VA was excellent.  They got me right in, hooked me up to monitoring devices, I got a thorough examination, vital stats, EKG, chest X-ray, CAT scan of my head, multiple blood tests, urinalysis, and several hours laying there being "monitored" by all these devices until the test results were in and analyzed.  When the symptoms had largely dissipated, the doctor was able to bring them back.  He got me into a sitting position, and he fairly quickly turned my head to one side and laid me down on the bed; vertigo came back, strong.  A few minutes later he repeated it, turning my head the other way, and did it again.  Again, vertigo came back, but not as strong. 

Anyway, I'm OK right now. 

What does all that have to do with the subject matter here?  Well, my sense of uprightness and my proper sense of direction had been frighteningly impaired.  When my eyes were open, it seemed to me that the world was spinning round, although I knew it was not.  When my eyes were closed, it seemed to me that I was spinning round, although I knew I was not.  It was a perversion of reality; a perversion of what my senses told me was real.  Once my own built-in automatic detector of the direction pointing to the center of earth's source of gravity and the direction pointing opposite earth's gravity failed me, my whole sense of proper direction became questionable.  I could trust no direction.  I couldn't even trust myself to stand up without holding on to something solid. 

The most solid and sure thing I know is God, and I turned to Him in prayer, and I believe that He, more than anything else, perhaps in spite of anything else, steadied me again so that I would not stumble and fall.  Seeking to modify myself to suite Him, to subordinate my will to His, to mold my own will around His will, has always provided me with a sure and unshakable proper sense of direction.  What all that had to do with my physical health, I don't know for sure, but I do know that holding fast to Absolute Truth always steadies me, puts me on the right path in life and prepares me for whatever is ahead. 

Now, I had been thinking and writing, in my spare time, about the multiple possibly fatal crises dragging America down, dragging Western Civilization town, and even seemingly dragging the Church down, and it seemed to me that the worst of these crises were either caused by or magnified by our huge, ongoing moral crisis.  The deepening moral degradation and cultural rot going on all around us should be alarming to anyone anywhere near my age group. 

And then, I saw two of the regular videos put out by Church Militant, and I remembered what I wrote way back when I wrote the Contraception page.  The two short video clips are right here:

Pro Lifers, at the March for Life in Washington DC, who favored contraception. 

Pro Lifers, at the March for Life in Washington DC, who favored homosexuality. 

Now, most of the 500,000 people who marched for Life on the anniversary of Roe v Wade were Catholics, and not only Catholics, but very proactive and faith filled Catholics, or they wouldn't have been there.  Among Catholics, you might say that they would be the most Catholic, in that they followed the doctrines of the Church to a T. 

But if you said that, you would be wrong. 

Look at the videos; they're very short, and very informative.  All I can say after seeing them is, God help us.  Whatever happens, the Church itself is going to survive it; the very Gates of Hell will not prevail against it.  But how big the Church will be and what shape it will be in at the end of the battle is questionable. 

Far too few, if any, see artificial contraception as any kind of a perversion of nature, let alone as a sin or as a perversion of God's law.  Contraception is now just a matter-of-fact part of life in our culture, as it is in other cultures, all over the world.  Let me repeat Freud's original definition of sexual perversion here:

“. . . it is a characteristic common to all the perversions that in them reproduction as an aim is put aside. This is actually the criterion by which we judge whether a sexual activity is perverse - if it departs from reproduction in its aims and pursues the attainment of gratification independently . . . Everything that . . . serves the pursuit of gratification alone is called by the unhonored title of ‘perversion’ and as such is despised.” --(Sigmund Freud, A General Introduction to Psycho-Analysis, translation By Joan Riviere (New York, NY: Liverwright, 1935), p. 277.)

Contraception is thus a perversion of nature.  Any sex act aimed at gratification alone while precluding the possibility of procreation is a perversion of sex itself.  That means, of course, not only artificial contraception in the most thought of sense, but also masturbation, mutual masturbation, oral sex, anal sex, homosexual sex, bestiality - all of these are methods of achieving gratification without procreation.  All of them are perversions of nature. 

You can't fool mother nature.  Nothing good comes from trying.  Here is Gandhi's warning about artificial contraception:

“Artificial methods [of contraception] are like putting a premium on vice. They make men and women reckless . . . Nature is relentless and will have full revenge for any such violation of her laws. Moral results can only be produced by moral restraints. All other restraints defeat the very purpose for which they are intended. If artificial methods become the order of the day, nothing but moral degradation can be the result. A society that has already become enervated through a variety of causes will still become further enervated by the adoption of artificial [birth control] methods . . . As it is, man has sufficiently degraded women for his lust, and artificial methods, no matter how well-meaning the advocates may be, will still further degrade her.”--Mahatma Gandhi, responding to Margaret Sanger who sought his support for a program of artificial contraception

He was right.  Just look around.  Nobody - no one on earth - blessed artificial contraception, or considered it to be anything other than evil, before 1930.  Since then, ever increasingly Western nations are openly blessing homosexuality and abortion.  Neither would have even been on anyone's radar if contraception had not paved the way.  Go read the original contraception page for the full history of it.  Today, abortion is little more than another means of artificial contraception, when other means fail or are not even used. 

In many families, chastity is now mortally wounded if not dead.  Chastity is now not even considered in many families.  Shacking up and cohabitation has become a norm for singles.  So is "hooking up" even when not cohabiting.  Every evil consequence of illicit sex statistically exploded with increased contraception, including everything it was designed and intended to prevent. 

Bastard children, "unplanned" children to marrieds, venereal disease infections, new unheard of venereal diseases, abortions, all sorts of unchastity including homosexuality, fornication, adultery, scandal, battered women, broken marriages, broken homes, declining marriage rates, fatherless children, abused children, and on, and on. 

What social acceptance of artificial contraception caused was an absolute explosion of all manner of illicit sex, which happens to be the primary if not sole causative activity of all of the evils listed above. 

You can't fool mother nature. 

The Marxocrat Party has exploited contraception and all of its' multiple sub-perversions like homosexuality and abortion as new Class Warfare battlegrounds.  Every sexual thing the Marxocrats champion, sponsor and promote degrades American culture more.  No exceptions. 

The Marxist sponsorship lies abound. That Marxists lie should be no surprise by this time; Marxists are, after all, MEJTML14 s before they are anything else. But I want you to see the pattern here; there is a similarity to all the Marxist lies relating to their support of all of these perversions of nature. It holds true in other areas, too, but it really stands out here:

Everything the Marxocrats falsely accuse the "Religious Right Wing" of trying to do is something the Marxocrats are actually trying to do. 

Examples:

  • They charge that we are trying to restrict contraception at the federal level. 
  • They charge that we are trying to restrict homosexuality at the federal level. 
  • They charge that we are trying to restrict abortion at the federal level.  

But, you see, none of these things are among the limited and enumerated powers of government in the Constitution, and so we, being Constitutionalists, cannot Constitutionally do any such thing.  We see all of these things as local issues subject to local community standards.  Not fit for federal law. Not authorized by the Constitution.

In point of fact, it is Marxocrats who use the Courts and use executive action, and bureaucratic regulation, and who would even use legislation if they could get away with it, to un-Constitutionally enforce such things as abortion, free (tax payer paid) contraception and homosexual marriage on the whole nation, in federal law

Constitution? 
What Constitution? 
We don't need no stinking Constitution! 

TRMITM18 involves turning from nature, turning from nature's God, not considering God's Word and seeking a false "freedom" to enjoy sexual pleasure without consequence. But it didn't work. It never does. Gandhi was right.

The Marxist promise is always freedom, but it is a false promise, for what they really seek is domination of you.  To make you their slave.  So it is with every temptation of the devil.  You want to be free to practice whatever form of sex floats your boat, but you don't see that it will make you a slave.  Every form of sexual impurity is addictive.  Sex is no different than booze to the alcoholic, drugs to the addict, good food to the glutton.  It becomes obsessive; it leads to deeper and deeper divorce from your own God given nature.  It is a perversion

It leads, ultimately, to complete nonsense, even insanity. 

An illustration of what it culminates in might be the mild news brouhaha about Chasbo competing on Dancing with the Stars.  It took me awhile to realize this was the same person born to Sonny and Cher and curiously named Chastity.  I remember that she grew up to become a homosexual rights advocate, as past generations rolled in their graves.  (Who would have heard of such a thing before 1930?) 

Anyway, it turns out that she "felt" that she was really a man, and so she had the transgender operation to make her one.  How did she come to feel she was a man?  Well, before that, how did she come to feel she was a homosexual? 

She was raised up under the influence of Sonny and Cher, her teachers, the lords and ladies of celebrity and show-biz and, generally, sexually licentious, atheistic and/or irreligious people.  So now it's a man, sort of.  If it changes its' mind later and feels like a girl, I suppose it can be reversed.  There may be a question about how many times it can go through this procedure; we all know what happened to Michael Jackson's nose. 

But, note that, now, it all comes down to what it feels, not what it is

This is, almost definitively, insanity.  It is a direct denial of truth. 

Looking at Catholic acceptance of contraception and homosexuality, are we that far behind the blatant, almost insane immorality of Hollywood?   No; not so far.  A whole lot of Catholics are using contraception.  A whole lot of Catholics see nothing wrong with homosexual activity. 

Which means a whole lot of Bishops are going to hell. 

Please God, and live forever.

Disorder in Homosexuality is the consequence of this moral disorder.  I'm a journalist and I know that nobody says how dangerous can be disorder of homosexuality.  Scientific can be easily said that disorder of homosexuality could be a crime against Humanity because homosexuality can not guarantee human prosperity.  It's obvious, it's scientific, it's truth but the majority will not agree.

You cannot impose your truth over the top of Chasbo's truth.  You cannot condemn what you do not even understand.  With no supporting evidence you attribute his TG identity with his parents, teachers and celebrities, purposely insulting him with the title "it".  You should be ashamed, and you should go back to school, and you should recognize the superstition that made you the fool that you are.

To deny absolute truth is to deny all order in the universe.  The Chasbo modified itself into the perverse creature it is based solely upon the power of suggestion.  It was taught by professional educators that it might be something other than what it was born to be, and that it was important to give that a whole lot of thought.  It was taught by the surrounding immediate culture that sexual pleasure, and the various particular methods of achieving it, and finding the right one for you, was the sole path to true fulfillment in life.  It's mother made a profession out of prancing around in public exposing as much of her bare ass as she could legally get away with exposing on an open-to-the-public stage.  The result of all of that is clear to anyone with eyes. 

Chasbo was born a female.  That absolute truth is Chasbo's only real truth.

Vic

Once again, thank you, Vic, for sharing your well thought through articles on the most critical issues of our time!  I have forwarded both articles on contraception to my children in college (Catholic and faithful to the Magisterium of the Church) and their very pro-life friends.  I know they will appreciate your argument and all of the research you have done.  May God bless you, your wife and family abundantly!

Thank you so much; it is encouraging to know that it is not all wasted effort.  I pray that your children and all of their friends will know, also, that redemption is available for past sins, that the Spirit is of more importance than the Flesh, and that your blessing for us may rebound to bless you and yours, too.

Vic

I believe it was back in the early 1900's when white wedding gowns became the tradition and popular symbol of status that also carried the connotation of innocence and sexual purity. I can't say I ever been to a wedding where either bride or groom were chaste before marriage. I recall on the list of communist goals written in 1958 that mentioned the idea of promoting pornography. It also mentioned; 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy. To add insult to injury, I am certain you will find condoms or birth control to be on the list of the Greatest Inventions of All Time. Just another example of how degenerative our culture has become. Evil has become good and good is now being called evil.

Queen Victoria started the white wedding gown tradition in 1840; other than that, you are right on all counts.  I had forgotten about the "goals" to be pursued by Communists operating inside all nations outside the Communist bloc.  Here they are:

  1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
  2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
  3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
  4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
  5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
  6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
  7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
  8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
  9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
  10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
  11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.
  12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
  13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
  14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
  15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
  16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
  17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
  18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
  19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
  20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
  21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
  22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."
  23. Control art critics and directors of art museums.
  24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
  25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
  26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
  27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."
  28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
  29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
  30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."
  31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
  32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture—education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
  33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
  34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
  35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
  36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
  37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
  38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat.
  39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
  40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity, masturbation and easy divorce.
  41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
  42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use "united force" to solve economic, political or social problems.
  43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
  44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
  45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike.

Thank you for reminding us. 

Regards,

Vic

You have touched only lightly on prayer here, and I wonder if you might elaborate on you personal prayer life.  It might provide more insight on the whole broad subject matter in this article if you could provide a brief summary of how you pray.

Well - no one ever asked me that before.  Generally, except in Church or with some prayer group, I seldom pray on my knees, or very obviously.  I pray while I'm doing whatever I'm doing.  Grace before meals may be obvious; the sign of the cross is obvious; a rosary in hand is obvious, but most of my prayer is more personal and private. 

We described Catholic prayer in it's own webpage, and we've pretty well ran the gamut through all of it.  We went through the Life in the Spirit program, which is geared toward praying in tongues.  (It didn't take for us.)  In the distant past we have been involved with many different "regular" prayer groups, including some that prayed the Divine Office (Liturgy of the Hours), Rosaries, Chaplet of Divine Mercy, etc.  

At some point we dropped the Divine Office mostly because of inability to get updates to the little periodic calendar-directories every time they expire - you need these little directories to find your prayers, day by day. The Hours are nice because of all the Saints and Martyrs and history, besides the beauty of the Psalms; but it is quite tedious to find the right pages without making mistakes.  And, the little directories keep expiring, and you can't get them in advance. 

Currently, I say a very simple Morning Offering while getting dressed, in which I give praise to the Lord and offer up the entire day, all my work and all my trials to Him, and ask His pardon for any stumbles or errors on my part.  We say Grace before all meals, no matter where, including when I eat my daily brown-bag lunch in my car each day. 

We both work; I pray the Rosary every day in breaks in my deliveries, and we pray the Rosary together on weekends.  At the end of the day, before going to bed, I try to summarize what I've done right and what I've done wrong, asking for forgiveness and praying for any special intentions that have come up during the day. 

Almost all of my prayer is of the Intercessory variety.  My prayers directly to God are usually giving glory, offering something up and asking forgiveness.  When I pray for some purpose, or some person, or some need, I feel less worthy than whatever Saint I may invoke, especially the Blessed Virgin, to ask Him directly.  The Lord hears the Righteous; therefore, all my Rosaries and all of my prayers for us and for others go through Mary, or one of the lesser Saints. 

I have prayed to Venerable Pierre Toussaint, who, although not Sainted, I feel certain is in Heaven.  His model of Catholic manhood is more than I could ever hope to properly imitate, let alone emulate.  I pray that I could be half the man that he was.  I pray to St. Joseph for perseverance and humility, and I pray to St. Michael for spiritual strength. 

Of course, our deepest prayer is the Mass, and our closest Communion with God is in the Eucharist.  Receiving the Body and Blood is, for us, the closest thing to actual Heaven this side of actual Heaven.  It is both reward and renewal.  For a brief time, we become what we eat. 

That's all I can think of.  Does that help? 

Regards,

Vic

Vic,

In 1 Timothy 2 verses 5 and 6, it says " For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself as a ransom for all, to be testified in due time." If there is only one mediator, why do you do this "intercessory" prayer at all? You are just repeating words by rote memory in your rosaries. It is just memorized repetitious chants, not unlike those in Buddhism or Hinduism, which might make you relaxed and euphoric, but say little or nothing to Jesus. Once you have been born again you will pray in angelic tongues and you will know the joy of your own salvation. If you want to talk in private I can show you the way.

We've been over all that old ground, many times, in this website.  Catholic Prayer is supported by both Scripture and Tradition, both of which came out of the same Revelation.  If you want the real skinny on proper interpretation of Scripture, you should go to the Church that wrote it and faithfully preserved it down through the centuries.  See the descriptions of Intercessory Prayer, and Repetitious Prayer, and Catholic Glossolalia, for openers.  I hope this doesn't come as too much of a shock, but there is only one judge of salvation, and it's not you, and not me.  We don't get to declare ourselves saved.  See the Are You Saved page.

Even recognizing that all of that is true would it not be more efficacious to pray directly to Jesus?

Theresa:

Possibly; I don't really know.  It might be for you if you are more saint like than me.  I don't feel worthy enough.  At least not to pray directly to the one and only Unity of the Trinity for a cause or purpose other than giving praise and glory. 

My prayers directly to God are of the form of a doxology, except for the Our Father, which He taught us.  The large beads of the Rosary are for an Our Father, a Glory be and the Jesus Prayer.  All the small beads are the Ave Maria beads, which are intercessory prayers invoking Our Lady to intercede and pray for us to her Divine Son. 

When I pray for a purpose, or for a person, or for priests, or for souls in Purgatory, I seek the intercession of Saints, particularly the Blessed Virgin.  Revelation shows the prayers of the Saints rising as incense before the throne.  I believe in the Community of Saints as in the Apostle's Creed. 

For myself, I pray Saint Joseph for strength as head of household, to Blessed Pierre Toussaint (who is not a saint, but I believe is in Heaven) for strength to be gentlemanly and proper in all situations, and I pray to St. Michael for strength to persevere when it looks darkest.  When I was a boy, the prayer to St. Michael used to be recited after every Mass; but no more. 

Bottom line, the Lord hears the prayer of the righteous, and the Saints are certainly more righteous than I am.  I give glory to God, but I ask the more righteous - the Saints - to ask God for any intention, favor or purpose. 

Regards,

Vic

Vic, my brother from another mother :)

You catch more flies with honey than vinegar :(

All this avoiding reality.  Hormones being what they are people are going to have sex including young people.  You tell young ladies to be chaste but they going to do it and they going to get pregnant.  Would it be better for them to have babies when they still babies themselves?  I'm just talking reality here.  This is not new it has always been that way.

Dr. Jones:

Sin has always been with us, but that doesn't mean we should start condoning sin, let alone blessing it and encouraging it, which is what contraception does. 

Prostitution has always been with us; does that mean we should legalize it and bless it, and encourage our daughters to practice it? 

Opium has been with us for centuries; does that mean we should legalize it and encourage our children to shoot up with heroin? 

Perfection is not for this world, but the next.  Artificial contraception, like Marxism, is a false promise.  It falsely promises to make illicit sex safe, devoid of problems, and, in a word, perfect.  It's a false promise.  Yes, there will always be fornicators, and yes, there will always be illegitimate pregnancies; there always were, and there always will be. 

But all contraception has ever done is increase the numbers, never decrease them.  It encourages the causative activity, which is illicit sex. 

Old fashioned chastity works, every time it has ever been tried.

Your Host, Vic Biorseth

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input. 
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction.

Atheist Genesis:

In the beginning there was nothing, and nothing happened to nothing.
And then nothing accidentally exploded and created everything.
And then some bits of everything accidentally encountered other bits of everything and formed some new kinds of everything.
And then some bits of everything accidentally arranged themselves into self-replicating bits of everything.
And then some self-replicating bits of everything accidentally arranged themselves into dinosaurs.
