The State Is a Pervert
R. Cort Kirkwood
some strange reason, even in matters of sexuality, government feels
compelled to pontificate, remonstrate and legislate. From the local
to the state to the federal, politicians and bureaucrats think they
know best about sex.
utter failure of public-school sex education, and millions of little
bastards running thither and yon in state-subsidized day care centers,
invites the conclusion that government and sex donít mix.
hope springs eternal that illegitimate, immoral and nakedly unconstitutional
government programs can "work."
sex surveys of middle- and high-schoolers are but one example, and
last year, Fairfax County, Va., took a carnal inventory of select
sexologists expected students to answer questions that were not
only impertinent and unnecessary but also egregiously offensive.
The survey was an outrage against innocent children and their parents.
questions came from the federal Centers for Disease Control, then
Fairfax added two about oral sex.
the inquiries were, "How old were you when you had sexual intercourse
for the first time?" Another: "During your life, with
how many people have you had sexual intercourse?" A third:
"The last time you had sexual intercourse, did you or your
partner use a condom?" And finally: "Have you ever participated
in oral sex."
is government run amok, and the appropriate answer to any educrat
asking such questions is this: You can ask my daughter if I can
ask your mother.
a better perspective, ask this: What kind of pervert wants to know?
is obsessed with sex, and not just here in America. Hence, example
No. 2: Government is also obsessed with sex in Africa, China, Asia,
and for all we know, among the pagan headhunters in New Guinea.
year, the federal government spends millions shipping condoms, birth
control pills and other contraceptives overseas. Again, no one ever
asks where the Constitution authorizes such expenditures, and no
one seems to care about it. And that includes the alleged Catholics
in Congress who vote for this "foreign aid."
surprisingly, Americans in the hinterland hear little if anything
about it, although they might pretend to know if you ask. No one
wants to look stupid.
they do know, they donít likely comprehend the magnitude of these
government that frets about "sex education," that asks
your 13-year-old boy about his "sex life," or walks up
to a peasant African woman and tells her she needs the pill, is
a government that will do anything.
does that mean? Think about it this way:
government asserting a "right" to ask about your teenage
daughterís "sex life" will also to tell her she has "right"
to procure an abortion with its permission but not yours. And then
it will assert the "right" to throw you in jail if you
try to stop it.
is precisely what our government does, which proves that government,
from the halls of Congress to the wilds of Africa, from the cubicles
at CDC to the elementary school classroom, is the enemy.
calling it government is much too flattering. A legitimate custodian
of the public weal knows its place. This invasive lechery goes by
