From the December 1961 Plain Truth
It's time America and Britain really FACED the problem of
effeminate and homosexual men in our midst!
It's time we learned the ANSWER to this revolting situation!
by Roderick C. Meredith
SOMEDAY well outnumber you, and then youll be the abnormal ones, and well be the normal.
So says the homosexual to the rest of society in the shocking book, "The Sixth Man," by Jess Stearn.
This book takes its title from the estimate that one out of every six American males already is tainted with homosexuality, and that the proportion is increasing. It indicates that many male homosexuals are married men with families and responsible jobs!
Harold L. Call, of the Mattachine Society, Inc.. said: "Among those you love most deeply there is likely to be at least one homosexual person. It could be a son or daughter, brother or sister . . . Many homosexuals . . . are 'among our most respected and successful citizens.'" One often overlooked aspect of this sordid situation is the recent related terrifying rise in venereal disease. From Chicago, Dr. Evan W. Thomas of the city Health Department publicly admits:
"There has been a marked increase in the venereal disease rate among teenagers, as we all know.
"But the significant rise that has received little or no public attention is that occurring among males. Less than ten years ago, the ratio of VD was about one male to every female. Now the ratio is FIVE males to every female.
"Seventy-eight per cent of the males interviewed said their contacts were MALE . . . It is the MALE PROSTITUTE we are most concerned about now," he said. (Emphasis ours.)
Why are men so seldom real MEN any more? Why do some perverted males want to make love to other MEN? Isn't this TERRIBLE? The greatest tragedy of all is that many of our leaders and "intellectuals" fail to grasp the very deadly seriousness of the whole situation. For in Britain and America, homosexuals list among their numbers those from the lowest dregs of society--and those from the highest positions in politics, business, music art and even religion!
Just a few months ago, the third ranking official in the British foreign office was hauled into magistrates court and accused of committing a homosexual act with a 19-year-old private in the Coldstream Guards. And it is common knowledge that literally dozens of minor officials and employees in the U. S. State Department and other government branches are practicing homosexuals/ In fact, it is through this weakness of some employees that the Communists have been able to obtain top secret information on U. S. defense and intelligence operations.
Reprehensible, you say?
But notice what the recent chief religious authority of ALL ENGLAND had to say: "The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Geoffrey Fisher, tonight spoke in the House of Lords in support of a Change in British law to make homosexual acts between consenting adults in private no longer a criminal offense. The Archbishop said the right to decide one's own moral code and obey it, even to a man's own hurt, was 'a fundamental right given to him by God and to be strictly respected by society and a criminal code'" (Reuters Release, December 4, 1959).
Dr. Fisher's statement gets to the BASIS of the whole problem. Does each individual human beingcompletely APART from the Supreme GODhave the authority to decide what is "right" and what is "wrong".?
Many, today, seem to think that man does have the right to set up his "own" moral code. This "do-as-you-please" philosophythis PERMISSIVE way of lifedoes not strongly condemn the murderer, the rapist, the juvenile delinquenteven the Communist in our midst. Rather, it tries to "understand" him.
But what are the "fruits"the RESULTSof this permissive way of life?
The crime rate is UPand juvenile delinquency is SKYROCKETING. Divorce and remarriagewhich God condemnsis increasing by leaps and bounds. Homosexuality is increasing rapidly. And venereal disease is spreading at an alarming rateespecially among HOMOSEXUALS!
In general, as FBI Chief J. Edgar Hoover has stated, there is a growing disrespect for ALL LAW and CONSTITUTED AUTHORITY among America's youth.
The latest issue of This Week magazine revealed that over ONE BILLION dollars in supplies and equipment is STOLEN each year from American Industries and businesses by the employees themselves!
More and more, our major cities art-being spoken of as "concrete jungles" where sudden, agonizing DEATH may come at any time, our women are not safe alone on the streets. Nor are men in many areas.
An increasing percentage of weak, SICKLY young men have to be rejected each year by the draft. And even our "glorious" soldiers, sailors and marines began to DEFECT to the enemy for THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY during the Korean conflict!
It is sickening to realize it, but roughly ONE THIRD of all GI prisoners in Korea were guilty of some form of collaboration with the enemy. Furthermore, during the entire Korean war NOT ONE of our men broke out of a permanent prison camp and returned to our lineswhich is the primary mission of a prisoner! This was the FIRST WAR IN UNITED STATES MILITARY HISTORY of which this can be said!
Strange as it may seem, much of the real answer to this shameful problem is understood by the Communists themselves! The United States Army has captured several Communist Intelligence Reports showing their analysis of why so many Americans defected and turned traitor to their country.
The following is an excerpt from one of these captured documents: It is addressed to the Chief of Intelligence of the Peoples Republic of China:
"The American soldier has weak loyalty to his family, his community, his country, his religion and to his fellow soldier. His concepts of right and wrong are hazy. Opportunism is easy for him. He himself feels frightened and insecure. He underestimates his own worth and his own strength and his ability to survive."
America, WAKE UP!
May God help you to realize that this problem of effeminate men is not concerned just with weak, "queer" characters in some other part of your town or city. It is a thing affecting MILLIONS of American men of all ages and backgrounds! Our very SURVIVAL as a nation is directly affected by this vital problem! As the above report so vividly points out, the American man is just plain WEAK!
He is WEAK in his loyalty to his family, his religion and to his fellow man. "His concepts of right and wrong are hazy." He has been reared on a PERMISSIVE philosophy where there is no real sense of definite right or wrong in his family and community. There has been no real AUTHORITY in his church or in his home to instill in him a definite sense of responsibility toward God and his fellow man.
No wonder he becomes "queer" so easilyand in so MANY WAYS! For not just in war but in broken homes and juvenile delinquency the weak, spineless, effeminate American male is responsible to a great degree. A respected marriage counselor, Dr. A. H. Clemens of Washington, D. C, recently stated that almost all family breakdowns can be traced to MOTHER-DOMINATED HOMES. He said: "That phony romantic stuff that Hollywood is teaching is very misleading." Psychiatric research has shown, he pointed out, that homes dominated by the mother produce "ninety-one of each one hundred mentally sick adult males" and the vast majority of all schizophrenics, split personality sufferers.
Increasingly today, in America and Britain, men are allowing WOMEN to rule their lives from the day of their birth until the day of their death! And this statement is more LITERAL than most of you probably even begin to realize!
Notice the typical "modern" situation: When a baby boy is born, first hospital nurses and then his mother dictate his every move. Then he goes to school, and women teachers take him over and mold him to a large extent in their image. After school, most of his play-hours will still be under the supervision of mother. If he happens to take music lessons, chances are that a woman teacher will dominate him during this part of each week. Then, on Sunday, he may go to a typical Sunday school where WOMEN tend to dominate in nearly every department.
In school, he often finds that "nice" little girls are held up as an example to the rest of the class by the women teachers. They may have the privilege of taking the roll, or reporting on "bad little boys" when teacher is gone from the room.
Even in adolescence, the girl is usually taught more sex know-how and regarded as more "responsible." The boy is expected to "get all he can," and the girl is expected to keep him in line!
In adult society, the young man finds that women tend to determine what type of social activities there shall beand when and where. Emily Post and other women are the self-appointed "authorties" who tell the American male how to behave himself.
Do you now begin to understand what is so terribly WRONG with American and British men today?
|Ambassador College men must be on the athletic field early in the morning
for physical training. A healthy body makes for a healthy mind.
There are many "do-gooders" and intellectuals who could come up with any number of plausible solutions to this critical problem. However, we need to be reminded, "there is a way which SEEMETH right unto man, but the end thereof are the ways of DEATH" (Prov. 14:12).
The first and most important step toward the real solution to this problem is to bring the true GOD into the picture. He is the God that created and now RULES the entire universe.
This true God said: "Let us make man in our image, after our LIKENESS: and let them have DOMINION over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth " (Gen. 1:26). God created man in His form and shape, and to a limited extent with His type of wisdom and understanding, as a potential RULER over His creation. This rulership requires WISDOM and STRENGTH. Man was given both of these.
Woman was not made to be the RULER over men, but rather a help to the man. For God said in making woman: "I will make him an HELP meet (or suitable) for him" (Gen. 2:18).
The true God created the woman to be "one flesh" with the man in marriage (verse 24), and intended him to LOVE and cherish her as his own body (Eph. 5:28).
The true God warned man not to PERVERT this natural union of the man with the woman, in marriage. "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with womankind, both of them hath committed an ABOMINATION: they shall surely be put to DEATH; their blood shall he upon them" (Lev. 20:13). In the New Testament, the true God CONDEMNED the early Greek and Roman philosophersupon whose ideas altogether too much of our culture and education is founded. He said they "changed the truth of God into a lie" (Rom. 1:25).
Then God states: "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: 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" (verses 26-27).
Many public schools are recognizing the urgent need of physically educating our youth.
The true God calls any perversity of this kind a VILE thingand He HATES it with a RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION!
In any case, American males are becoming more SOFT and SISSIFIED. A recent news clipping states; "Some psychiatrists are worried because the new American male lacks aggression. He is becoming too polite, too sweet, too easily turned away from his goals. Our women now have more aggression than the men." Yes, our American men are becoming "nice little boys." They are not real MEN!
A recent Associated Press release states:
"The good life of Americaits cars, its pushbuttons, its bountiful larder, is turning us into a nation of SOFTIES. That was the message Tuesday night of The Flabby Americans,' on ABC. The picture drawn of Americans, young and old, was not attractive. The program pointed out that our young people have been described as 'a generation of marshmallows'" (emphasis ours).
And the sickening TRUTH is that these soft, MARSHMALLOW-like men very easily turn to HOMOSEXUALITY and become "queers" in every sense of the word. They are neither MEN nor WOMEN they are a wretched, PERVERTED "it"!
A recent book on mental health reveals that nations that become soft and effete almost ALWAYS fall under the heels of more aggressive countries! Our very national SURVIVAL is going to be affected by whether American men are real men or "its"!
Recent findings of a team of researchers from the University of Minnesota medical school reveals the following:
"Typically, the sex offender had a tendency toward being EFFEMINATE and is somewhat less than normal in sexual capacity and interest in girls."
Not only are our effeminate men AFRAID of the enemy in battle, collaborators with the enemy after they are captured, AFRAIDa s the leaders in some cases of our country and our State Department to call the enemies' bluff and make him back down, they are also weak and AFRAID of normal interest in women leading to marriage and therefore in their cowardice turn to HORRIBLE crimes of perversity against young women and little boys and girls!
This thing of weak and effeminate men is a far-reaching and SERIOUS business!
The only real solution is to really WORK ON IT from Almighty GOD'S point of view not from the perverted, confused ideas of men!
The true GOD reveals that it is not only the literal act of homosexuality that is wrong, but even the tendency towards such things is a SIN against our Maker and our fellow man. In the New Testament of God's written revelation to man, He states: "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolators, nor adulterers, nor EFFEMINATE, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God" (I Cor. 6:9-10).
A man who just allows himself to become EFFEMINATE is in fact dishonoring and DISGRACING his Maker in whose image and likeness he was originally made! All men need to realize and ACT on this basic truth.
From the point of view of GODour Maker and Rulerwhat is true masculinity? Is it the picture of a hairy-chested, ignorant male monster who beats and abuses women and children?
Rather, the truth is that the male of the speciesin a very special way should become in body, mind and spirit LIKE GOD. For God states: "For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of GOD: but the woman is the glory of the man" ( I Cor. 11:7).
In this same chapter, God reveals the order of authority in society as HE intended it to be: "But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God" (verse 3 ). Being made even more directly in the image of God than the woman—who was created to be his helper— man is to be in AUTHORITY as God's representative in human society and over all the animal creation on earth.
What God-like, truly masculine qualities should man cultivate and exhibit, therefore?
An entire book would, of course, be needed to list and fully describe all of these qualities. But I would like to emphasize two basic qualities of true masculinityas revealed in God's Wordthat ought to be expressed in three categories.
These two basic qualities are STRENGTH and LEADERSHIP.
When God was calling out Abraham to serve Him with his whole heart and to be "the father of the faithful" He revealed Himself in the following manner: "And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the ALMIGHTY GOD; walk before me and be thou perfect" (Gen. 17-1).
When, in making the Old Covenant with ancient Israel, notice how God revealed Himself to them: "And Mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it IN FIRE: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount QUAKED GREATLY. And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long and waxed louder and LOUDER, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice" (Ex. 19:18-19).
Many more instances could be cited, but the point is that God revealed himself with POWER when He wanted man to realize and respect His office. And man himself— as God's direct representative on earth over all other created beings has also been given greater STRENGTH and POWER to carry out his office.
God says: "Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am GOD, and there is none else!" (Isa. 45:22). Knowing it is best for us, His children, God is not bashful about taking the LEAD. He completely DOMINATES in His dealings with men.
But modern manoriginally made in God's imagehas be gun to DISSIPATE this strength of body, mind and personality. He has become WEAKINDECISIVEFEARFUL.
Let us now examine the three categories in which man should develop the strength and leadership which God intends that he should exhibit.
PHYSICALLY: First of all, modern men should quit being physical "marshmallows" and begin to physical strength and energy! Through proper food, sleep and exercise they should develop a sense of self-confidence and leadership which makes them better able to take their place at the head of human society.
All of the laws of good health enter into this, but one of the primary ones in regard to the problem of masculinity is that of EXERCISE. Most American men, today, sitting in front of their TV sets, riding to work, sitting at their desk, do not get NEARLY enough exercise. That's why they are "softies." They are completely UNLIKE the pioneer men of yesteryear who were constantly walking, chopping down trees, plowing behind a team of horses, working and DRIVING their way through the wilderness and over obstacles! Unless, alas, they are already too old or have heart trouble or some similar condition, American men need to exercise vigorously and really SWEAT. They need to feel their blood stirred up and get the male hormones stirring in their system! They need to feel a firmness and hardness in their muscles, an agility and coordination in their body as a whole and a sense of ENDURANCE when the going gets rough. Even physically, they need to feel what it is like to be a MAN!
Ambassador College men do pushups during morning exercise on the
MENTALLY: Modern British and American men need to be taught a more positive and masculine mental attitude.
They need to understand that Almighty God created them to be the LEADERS in society and thatwhether or not they assume this leadershipGod still holds them RESPONSIBLE.
Even the very first man, Adam, tried to "pass the buck" in the original sin by saying: "The woman thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat" (Gen. 3: 12).
Notice God's answer to this weak-kneed attempt of Adam to let the woman usurp his authority: "Because thou has hearkened unto the voice of thy wife . . . CURSED is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life" (verse 17).
Oh yes, all the modern "wacky" psychiatrists and psychologists and their opinions notwithstanding, man is fully CAPABLE of being the right kind of leader in society if he is not too LAZY!
Every man needs to be taught or teach himselfwhich he can do if he really wants toto USE his mind. He needs to learn to exercise mental discipline, to develop knowledge, understanding and WISDOM to make right decisions. Every man needs to learn to exercise RESOURCEFULNESSto think his way around any problem and come up with the right solution. He needs to have VISION to think ahead into the future and foresee the real outcome of his present actions and habits. He needs to realize that becoming truly WELL educated is not something merely for sissies and bookworms, but for a real MAN who is going to be the leader in human society to plan what ought to be done, to exercise the mental energy and discipline to see that the job gets done properly, and to accept the RESPONSIBILITY before God and his fellow man for the authority in which he has been placed.
All parents and all society need to learn that every young boy needs to be TAUGHT the proper masculine way of acting and thinking. The most important person to teach these things by EXAMPLE is the boy's own FATHER.
Every father needs to spend much time with his sons. He needs to teach them about how to participate in sports, how to handle fear and anger, how a decent human being ought to approach sex, how a real MAN plans, builds, and develops his CHARACTER to be the right kind of husband and father when he grows up to have his own family.
These things can be taught best of all by a boy's own father. Countless respected judges, teachers, social workers and other experts on the problems of juvenile delinquency have come to the conclusion that "a child who respects his FATHER will respect his teacher, the laws of his country, and all the persons around him."
As much as possible, every father should teach his sons many types of responsibility. He should teach them to work around the house, how to handle money, how to make an impartial and FAIR decision in love, for the good of the whole family or group. A young boyor girl, for that matterseeing this example from his father and the head of the family, will have this lesson indelibly stamped into his character as he grows up.
Every father needs to take his son hiking, camping, hunting and fishingteaching him all the time self-discipline, resourcefulness, perseverance and STRENGTH, CONFIDENCE and LEADERSHIP.
And all the whileas we have stated each fat her should teach his sons the proper attitude of LOVEnot lustand APPRECIATION for the opposite sex that God intended. Thus trained by the EXAMPLE of his father and other men, every boy would grow up WANTING to be the right kind of LEADER in his home and community. From boyhood, a definite sense of physical and mental STRENGTH would be instilled in himbased on training, experience and REALITY. He would, then, be truly QUALIFIED to take his place as the leader of his wife, the father of his children and a guiding force in his business and community circle.
In short, he would be a real MAN.
Girls, too, need physical exercise to maintain good health, to be alert students
and have healthy children.
A man's strength and leadership should not be confined to physical things alone. For the spiritual leadership of real, masculine MEN in Western society is one of the greatest needs of our time! As in the home, the school, and the social sphere, so modern woman has tended to DOMINATE in the religious sphere of life as well. It is a well-known fact that far more women go to church than men. More women than men are Sunday school teachers. In the home, WOMEN are increasingly regarded as the spiritual leaders.
Men haven't really thought this problem through and decided that the women SHOULD lead them in these things. Rather, they have often subconsciously assumed that the woman is more "righteous" because she lacks aggressive drives which they see in themselves. And, besides that, most men are just too LAZY to try to take the lead which God intended in spiritual matters.
In fact, the "religious" women tend to be among the guiltier ones in this whole problem of effeminate men. One writer comments:
"Some of the blame, I think, is on the mothers. Many of them try to create sissies in their own image rather than in the image of the fathers. The more religious the mother is, the more inclined she is to emasculate her sons."
Remember, however, that the true GOD says: "The head of the woman is the man." In His Word, God also commands: "Let your women keep SILENCE in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a SHAME for women to speak in the church" (I Cor. 14:34-35).
God led the Apostle Paul to statein the inspired Scripture: "But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in SILENCE" (I Tim. 2:12). Many modern female religionistsconfused and deceived by the god of this worldwill,
I know, write in with great indignation over this statement and try to condemn the Apostle Paul and what GOD inspired him to write in the Bible for THEIR GOOD! Notwithstanding, what God has inspired in these verses is divine TRUTH.
All real students of the origins of modern "Christianity" realize that most of our modern religious ideas have evolved from a WOMANSemiramis, the wife of Nimrod mentioned in Genesis 10. In Alexander Hislop's authoritative volume, The Two Babylons, he shows how virtually ALL of this world's religions have evolved from the ancient Chaldean mystery system evolved by the harlot-wife of ancient Nimrod, who founded Babylon in rebellion against God.
The false religions of this world are basically effeminate in their personality and appeal. That is one reason many real menignorant though they are of exactly whyare REPELLED by this sort of nonsense. The sentimental, weak, SICKLY appeal of so many modern churches is enough in itself to drive any real MAN away in disgust!
Satan, of course, is the author of the whole sordid mess. Satan is a "QUEER!" Your Bible speaks of him in this manner: "And the great dragon was cast out, chat old serpent, called the devil and Satan, which DECEIVETH THE WHOLE WORLD: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him" (Rev. 12:9).
It is very hard for most people to honestly BELIEVE that God means what He says. But He Does! Satan has literally DECEIVED this earth as a whole into following and practicing false religions which are perverted, "queer" and effeminate in origin and personality and atmospheretotally UNLIKE the religion of the true GOD who is indeed very masculine.
Modern religion even tries to make Jesus Christ out to be weak and sickly and effeminate! A recent Hollywood movie, or "monstrosity"as the case may beis a case in point on this matter. Notice the vivid description that a recent issue of Time magazine gave of the kind of Christ this wretched film portrays: "The imitation of Christ is little better than blasphemy . . . Whatever possessed producer Bronston to offer the part to Jeffrey Hunter, 35, a fan mag cover boy with a flabby face, a cute little lop-sided smile, baby-blue eyes and barely enough ability to play a Hollywood marine? And why shave his armpits and powder his face till he looks like the pallid, simpering chorus boy Christ of the religious-supply shoppes?"
It's time to WAKE UP!
This type of "religion" and this type of a sickly, effeminate FALSE Christ is an ABOMINATION in the sight of Almighty God the Creator!
It is time for real MEN to get back to "the faith once delivered"To the religion of the BIBLE. It is time for them to really STUDY the lives of Abraham, Moses and DAVID to see what a real man should be like!
It is time real MEN took the lead in society and got rid of the "queer" ideas in the field of dress, art, music and literatureto mention just a few areas of modern life which have been perverted by our EFFEMINATE society.
Notice these things!
Instead of singing in a deep, forceful, masculine voice, whyespecially in the last few yearsdo we find so-called "singers" whining through their noses in a sick dog, pleading tone to their "ladylove." Why do we find a type of art rising up in the last few years which is indeed "queer" to the nth degreea veritable MESS of jumbled forms and lines and colors?
Why do we find the "leaders" in men's clothing styles trying to palm off on British and American males little "pink" shirts and socks and ties to wear, nylon under pants like females wear, and cute little bows and buttons and other childlike contrivances on their suits and sports outfits? Why?
The answer is that the true GOD has been left out of our thinking and acting in EVERY PHASE of modern society. That is why is is indeed perverted and "queer"!
After describing how the very FOUNDERS of our "civilization" went off into literal perversity and "queerdom," God states: "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" (Rom. 1:28).
The true GOD who created you shows in His Word that all real men should have STRENGTH and LEADERSHIP. And these qualities should be guided and motivated by true Christian LOVE. This is not maudlin sentimentality or weakness, but wise, masculine concern and compassion for the needs and wants of their fellow men according to God's will.
The Apostle Paul commands: "Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like MEN, be STRONG" (I Cor. 16:13).
The true religion of Jesus Christ will indeed motivate men to be real MENto have wisdom and strength, and to LOVE their wives, children and fellow men with outgoing concern and consideration.
Finally, to all males who read this let me say: APPRECIATE the fact that God made you a man, a potential leader and a potential KING and RULER in His coming Kingdom (Rev. 2 : 2 6 ). Develop your masculine qualities of strength, leadership, wisdom and love. And APPRECIATE the fact that God made woman to be a wonderful HELP to a man. Objectively train yourself to love and appreciate the beauty, the sweetness, the softness, the kindness with which God has endowed the right type of woman. In the right way, learn to LOVE and cherish all women, but ESPECIALLY your own beloved wife and daughters!
Help them, protect them, provide for them, cherish thembut YOU be the MAN and leader of the situation! In this God intended way, your wife will have a deeper sense of security and JOY than ever before, your sons will grow up with confidence to be real MEN, your neighbors and community will be reinvigorated by your masculine leadership, and your NATION will be far better able to protect itself and to survive in the chaotic months and years that lie ahead.
Most of all, you will be fulfilling the PURPOSE for which you--as a MAN--were placed on this earth!
