This post is an answer to a Discussion board question posted in on of my University classes.
To what extent do you think the gender movements of the 1960s encompassed more than the rights of women?
I will state this from the outset that this subject make me sick to my stomach, when you realized what you are truly saying so I will be as gentle as I possibly can and will state it now I mean no offense to any however, Truth needs to be told. In 1350 Knights sworn to God and Scripture and to defend those in need, of widows and orphans and to defend the honor of women and to teach them as recorded in the original oaths of knight hood at the time of the first Crusade and chivalry not like the mythical writing of them in stories or poems, as of today but true men of renown and of honor and duty to God. It was the first time in recorded history of a movement to free women from bondage and abuse and it was a Biblical Principal that did so. These men were trained to be warriors, doctors, Lawyers and healers of their time and swore their lives to this end as did the Order of the Garter which the Queen of England is a part of to this very day, but like all good causes it soon fell into dishonor and faded into history. The proper Biblical role from Creation of women is not that Eve was taken from Adam foot as to walk on her or form head that she should be exalted above him but was taken from Adam’s rib closest to his heart, a help meet. She is neither his slave nor his superior, and the twain (the two) shall be as one. I have preached a thousand sermons on this subject, but here it would fall on deaf ears in an amoral society who is more concerned about their sexual prowess, equality to the man’s position, and to the destruction of the Home than servitude to God and country. Feminists have said and hold as a part of their foundation and their tenants that the Bible was written by men to enslave women and see servitude to God as an enslavement, even if he does exist and I have had those feminist types spit on me for what I believed. Their arguments and hatred is misguided toward men their problem is with God, in thirty years all the young boys and girls I have counseled all say the same thing to me, “I just wish my Mommy was at home”, these issues shake the foundations of the family itself and most children won’t ever admit to this because they don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings no less hurt their mothers. Gangs on the increase in society (both young men and women) who seek family, they seek a place to belong and somewhere where they feel safe and someone to take care of them (so the gang takes care of its own). In the rush to attain equality, it leaves the vacuum in society of our nation youth, while women sought careers and felt justified to do so; we forgot what would happen when Mom wasn’t their anymore or if she is just a part time mom. Mom now preoccupied with her own agenda leaves the family for what she considers to be her own fulfillment that suddenly it was incorrect to follow in her mother’s footsteps her meager position in life being nothing more than a slave to the father of her children and of course there is always a man to blame when things did not work or we can relate the marriage contract to social prostitution like I have heard many women of the sixties discuss. There was always a man who was not at home because he was seeking the same freedom from the Biblical Authority as well and two wrongs do not make a right but that’s not the issue we are discussing here its Feminism, I will deal with the men’s issue later. Women now seeing that there is more to life than duty to family or the husband or God and seeks social time and interests of others, and when marriage or family stops working or they find something better (when in digressions happen) they can just leave (the rise in divorce for any cause) and do all this and claim it was for the good of the children and assume this is justified. Women stating falsely that they only want what men already have, thinking men can have sex at any time and of course women can not, or the men have no shame brought on them for having in digressions seek to have the same equality, they envy men for. Most people of the sixties had no Idea that the infiltration of the American home was already in progress, it was documented in a little book written in 1958 by W. Cleon Skousen by the Ensign Publishing Co. called “The Naked Communist” that chronicles the deceptions we have been fed and what these movements from a social aspect are all about and I am sure Ms. GxxxX can enlighten you on the agenda of these facts being a part of the anti anti-establishment movement herself and if not here are some of the listed goals you will find chronicled in the book per the critique of the book see: http://www.uhuh.com/nwo/communism/comgoals.htm Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35, January 10, 1963, Current Communist Goals
EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, Thursday, January 10, 1963.
[From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]
CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS
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. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
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. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
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.

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 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.
You think what your doing is honorable and a progression of equality but you have been lied to, it all apart of the plan and like sheep you have been misled into destroying the home and the American way of Life to the discredit of not only of your family, American principals but God himself. Research the evidence it speaks for itself. As to the suffrage of women we all agree in equality, but even equality has its limits, even men have limits which all men recognize or are you so biased you cannot see it. Men who have dishonored their families are just as much to blame as the women. Men who left the natural use of the women and likewise the women.
The reference for those who are interested is here see:
Romans 1: 18-32
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
If you read it, it is clear and if you don’t understand it, I can explain it, for I am well qualified and we can discuss the dodge most people use when they will say: “that just your interpretation” lets talk about what the term interpretation really means and I am fully qualified in this field, we can discuss Hermeneutics if you wish but that not the truth for those who use that line because truth be told they just don’t care. Neither men or women if they are Christians can go against the laws of God and say that it is right, it’s not like we have a choice (It’s not like going to McDonalds Ladies and Gentleman, “Can I take you order please”) Christians have no right to go against God and no one else does either really. These are but a few of the principals our nation was founded on and all Americans need to be careful not to destroy or allow other philosophies or Nations to do the same, it is the only really free country in the world even Canada agrees with that and if we fall so will they. If you are amoral you still understand this shows deviance and the plot thickens when you realized you are being used against our nation from the communist perspective and we have known this fact since 1963. These same issues are not new and I can take you back 1,000 years and show you what was going on today is the same in human existence back then. To cloud the waters of the Rights of Women with Feminism is a travesty for the women of this nation who are equal with their male counterpart in many ways but Feminism destroys the God given rights of the Creator to them and of the recognition given by the founders of this nation. Like the Slave issue it takes time to undo the attitudes of improper men who are appose to Biblical principles. Proper gender issues first should be taught at home, not dictated by schools and the state, or Congress and institutionalize by the justice Department,. Second the problem is most Men feel defeated at home, the loss of who they really are, and how much they now can trust their partners who seek to undermine the home (repercussions of Feminism, abortion, homosexuality and divorce for any cause and the Legal implications) and his authority which God holds him accountable for as the Head of the house hold not the woman. Some have given up because it’s easier to abandon the home for something that looks better, and you as women wondered why they do this, you know why, look at the repercussions of your actions and take responsibility like real men do if you want to be seen as equals. The confusion of gender swapping causes harm to all children and the social acceptance of this type of action only helps to proliferate it, not legitimate it and is condemned again in the Biblical tradition which is not changeable simple because of society or human wisdom thinks it should be so God never changes, his rules stand the same from the beginning Male and Female Created He them. Like children throwing a tantrum when they don’t get what they want, not realizing the danger involved in some actions to everyone in the family ( ie. Mankind) and to themselves again we have a spoiled brat society. Universalism is a danger, Unisex is a danger, and while we experiment with the possibilities as did the ancients to their own destruction, we know the ends of their civilizations, the question you should be asking is who in the world and in their right mind says this is a correct way to live and it must be forced upon the American people by legislation even when it is contrary to the established norm of a Country, and God, by what right, I’ll give you a hint go back and reread the list from the Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35, January 10, 1963, Current Communist Goals EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, Thursday, January 10, 1963. [From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen] or just buy the book, its required reading in Mormonism. Yes, contrary to the false doctrines and apostasy of some religious people who hold there is not a difficulty in their religion concerning Homosexuality (Judaism, Catholicism and others) however there is no major Religion in the world that accepts homosexuality in its teachings or writings (like the Bible), it is condemned by every major religion. Once you have destroyed this nation where will you go then, we know what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah.
The Truth is in front of you but because you firmly believe that all men are to blame it is a justification for women to be as immoral as they possibly can, and even including to the breakdown of the Social values, the home and the abandonment of those they profess to love. If a man were to take a 14 year old girl in to his house at 11:30 at night and there was any impropriety seen by his neighbor the cops and TV crews would crucify him as the biggest pervert in America his picture and life would be ruined immediately, but two lesbian women can have a 14 year old Sheriff’s daughter over for the world to see with their window open to the public and nothing is said it’s just natural because they have a personal right to express themselves and yes I saw this in Kyle, Texas 4 years ago. Male bashing has become a national past time for most women not recognizing that good men are under Law by God to do what is commanded of them but then again women do not care who they hurt their concern is for themselves. Most people of today’s society take an isolationist approach to fighting against the immoral decay of our society a live and let live approach not recognizing that these groups are not interested in merely equal rights or pay for women or genders but the superiority of women and others and completely restructuring society based on human wisdom even if it means destroying this country and its constitution they believe, “so be it”. This war is not simple between men and women as status of equality but it’s hostile to the destruction of Religion and most of the Atheistic, and Homosexual groups agree with this tenant even though today they are more careful not to state it like years ago that all Christians should be killed as not to incite others against their cause and be labeled as a hate group but some still venture to this extent especially in the amoral and Atheistic camps who wish to change from what they call the old regime not recognizing we are teaching a whole new generation about the fallacies of this philosophy. Because the causes of what are deemed minorities like gender benders or deviant cause is not progressing some feel we have stagnated, this is an evolutionary ethic which is a fallacy from the beginning as I have warned before in other discussion boards, Hegelian thought is a flawed philosophy and cyclical in nature and never proves anything by its very nature in logic, it is opposed to it and it is the reason we have Communism and it’s based on it and it is what threatens us. The issues of Homosexuality and Communism under Lenin criminalize it so if your basing your hopes on Communism to free the oppressed sexual minority you may be spending time in prison or worse, not all communism opposes it but it is a tool for them to breakdown the moral conscience of America and gain a foot hold on American society as does the Atheistic Philosophy. When you realize too late the mistakes you are thrusting upon our society, and the revolution begins, when you press good men as far as humanly possible, when reactionism begins, remember the pendulum effect you can’t get away from it, I fear the blood shed and it can happen, when will the immorality be seem for what it is. It is one thing to practice things of this nature in the privacy of your own home it is entirely another issue to force it into being a part of the Law.
This is just a brief over view I could site many scholars on these issues but it would not matter most in this class will not even venture to read this post like most people they are bent as my father would say to their own destruction.
My fear is because of the extent to which these causes go the progress made could be a detriment if reactionism sets in and it goes too far. I believe women should have the ability to vote, equal pay, and that law should be structured that when issues of incompatibility arise and no hope of reconciliation exists, marriage counseling by qualified moral individuals not associated with the Law system should be consulted first, second when that fails then the Law should be equitable in dividing assets and not like the revolving door I see today where women take a man to the cleaner ever so many years to live off of their hard work and savings and all he is left with is the ice trays and the bills and devoid of seeing his children.
I was married to my first wife for seven years and preached for 6 of those years, she cheated on me for all seven of those years we were married, on the court house steps after the divorce she asked if we could still be friends, and I never answered her, one year later she called me in Austin, Texas and asked me to move her and the children from Houston to Arlington Texas so I rented a U-Haul and went to Houston. I packed up what was there and she sent her mother and the children into the house to check it one more time (she wanted to talk privately), I was sitting on the passenger side of the U-Haul with the door open and she walked up and said I need you to forgive me for 3 things?, and I said “Ok it depend on what it is”. She said: “All of the times you thought I was cheating on you I was, Second I tried to Kill you, I tried to make you commit suicide”, I shook my head and walked away and gave no answer. To this day I have never answered the question because she has never repented of those issues and still tries to this day to make my life as uncomfortable as she can, She wasn’t there at the stop light when after the kids were told we were getting a divorce and I had taken them to get school supplies and as I was driving home, stopped by a stop light and looking over at my daughter in the passenger’s seat and her little blonde hair and tears in eyes ask a question I still can’t forget, “Will you still be my Daddy”. I remembered her words and would not answer my ex-wife because of it. I’ll tell you now lest I forget my ex-wife almost got her wish several times. Now all I asked God for is to live one minute longer than she does, and I leave my wrath In his hands even though as Marine I could have stopped her life at 100 yards, I’m one of the best shots in the Marine Corp. but God is just not I, God is Wise, not I, God is Judge not I.
Second marriage I caught her, as you have read in a previous Discussion Board with her girl friend and cocaine, two strikes (cheating, Immorality, and drugs) I don’t tolerate it and I left with what was mine we both used the same lawyer never to speak again.
Third wife, vibrant, full of Life, could almost out work me as a Marine any day, forced to help a maintenance man move a heavy couch at her work (She was an Assistant Manager with two Children) while we only had been dating for one month. Something snapped in her back while moving the couch and she dropped to the ground and was instantly in pain and almost totally immobile. The pain so intense that at times she begged me to kill her and at times I had to keep our nine year old daughter at home to watch her for her own safety when it was necessary so I could work. She has CRPS 1 and Fibromyalgia (One is a nerve Pain with no cure, the other is Myofascial pain under the skin caused by the short circuiting nerves of the other condition) for 13 years, drugs keep the pain level down and she has two controllers in her spine to help as well. I Cook, I clean house, I wash dishes, I do laundry as I always have, I tended the children, I worked 40 hours a week plus, and I stayed because I love her for what she is, not for what she can do or how high her career status is, She is my Help meet. Life is hard sometimes, but God has provided and keeps us every day and has for the past 13 going on 14 years. This is my life, not the party life others have based on some socialite, or sexually immoral spoiled brat society or gender bending they made fun of me life, I am a Marine, I am a Cowboy, I am a Christian and as long as God allows I will walk this earth as a reminder to those who forgot Him and what this country is about. She had a career, a single mother with two kids, my daughter now 23 is married (I married them her and her husband before God), I was blessed to watch both of my grandchildren born from her and one my Grandson (born premature) is two and a half now, my Granddaughter is six months old, these are our children not the States and they will be told the truth and not some government dictated hedonist or humanistic doctrine espoused by men who think to highly of themselves or some committee in the United Nations floundering under a banner of the Humanist Manifesto IV or 2011.
Sorry for the length this subject would require volumes in order to fully discuss it and I am qualified to write them adequately, this is but a mere smattering and over view of what is involved. Not that this will be read by anyone or if it is that it will make a difference and I will leave you with these words to hear the Conclusion of the whole matter: “Fear God and keep His commandments for this is the whole duty of man (mankind) for God shall bring every work into judgment every secret thing, whether it be good or whether it be evil” Ecc. 12:13, you can’t claim ignorance when He (God) comes you have been warned by His Own Word.
