-For Immediate Release-
(October 19, 2018) – Orange City, Iowa
Members of OC Pride, before I address your public sins this week-end, my generation must humble itself and confess to God and you, our contributing sins! On behalf of my ‘yuppie’ generation living here in NW Iowa I ask God and your generation’s forgiveness for our massive sinful commissions and omissions!
Over the last 25 years Christian parents, churches, denominations, colleges, and area schools were challenged! They were called to repent of their indifference to their duty to ensure consistent Biblical training of their children in the realm of sexual morality, marriage and family! When many of you with OC Pride were yet children, Rescue The Perishing called on such Christian authorities to repent of their apathy, cowardice, vanity, pride, and any of their own past voice-muzzling sexual sins. Then, as redeemed Christians, we asked them to humbly join the struggle to raise up “godly seed.” (Mal. 2:15)
But most adults during this time, like Gallio in Acts 18 really “…cared for none of these things.” (17b) and did not bring up their children in the nurture and the admonition of the Lord. Many attended churches while promoting sexual hypocrisy by their mere acquiescence to the sexual agenda and ended up “provoking their children to wrath” (Eph. 6:4) – the wrath often born of guilty consciences and sexual degradation. In your childhood – OC Pride members – most fathers were like Haggith in 1st Kings 1 not wanting to suffer the wrath of his rebellious son Adonijah, and thus never in love, rebuked their child’s sin by asking, “Why have you done so?” Even Eli the priest was condemned of God for merely whining about his rebellious sons but not acting to oppose their foulness. In not acting he dishonored God and as a result Eli lost God’s covenant blessing on his house. (1 Sam. 2:22-36)
My voice back then was vilified and silenced, sometimes even from the pulpits in this area. May God have mercy on these men, pulpits and elders.
Elders and pastors did not stand up against the feminist lies that have ruined young women and neutered young men since the early 1970s. They rolled over when Calvin Seminary professor Marten Woudstra, a homosexual, played a heavy hand in writing the Christian Reformed Church’s “homosexualism” position paper which the denomination adopted in 1973. Woudstra also served as the Hebrew editor to the NIV Bible which “softened” the seriousness of sodomy. His personal homosexuality didn’t surface until after his death, but the churches of this area should have separated from the CRC soon after his fake doctrines were adopted.
Over this time courts, cultural institutions, propagandists, teachers, professors, colleges and seminaries were ripping the transcendental, the intimate, holy, private and future-oriented productive power of marital union away from our youth – including many of you now in the gay pride crowd. Those entrusted in your spiritual and moral growth and your protection raised nary a peep. After all basketball, making money, being well-liked and other distractions meant so much more to them. They did not trust Christ but quivered in fear of mere mortal men, all this when most of you were yet children.
For years, I’ve asked what Rev. Greg Bahnsen of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church once asked, “How many times can a Christian elder turn his head and pretend he just does not see?”
The culture was bad enough, as Rev. B.J. Haan, founder and former President of Dordt College, warned in the 1948 issues of Time and Life magazines. The B.J. Haan of 1948 cautioned that through movies, Hollywood actors would be teaching covenant children about sex, drunkenness, and violence, thus hindering Christ’s Kingdom advancements. Yet with Hollywood’s porn industry now destroying children from grade-school age on up to college students and many marriages in the Reformed Christian world, Dordt’s current President Hoekstra recently belittled (time stamp 19:10ff) Haan’s concerns, vainly characterizing them as ‘ranting and railing’.
But worse than the cultural influences were the local classrooms. Classrooms are presumed by children to enjoy the delegated teaching authority of their parents and pastors alike. When it came to classroom sex talk, children could listen freely without a guilty conscience. They didn’t have to hide it. But sex-ed changed fundamentally in America in 1966. It went from biology and physiology to humanist values, attitudes, norms and explicit sexual details all designed to undermine God and parents.
Many Iowa schools were slow to adopt these, so in 1988 the Iowa legislature was pushed to update their Human Growth and Development statutes to include explicit teaching about “human sexuality” and “acquired immune deficiency” (AIDS) in required sex-ed courses to children in 1st thru 6th grades, in Iowa accredited schools. RTP spoke out – asking pastors and then Iowa pro-life leader and Dordt graduate, Marlys Popma to oppose S.F 2094 as it would only open the door to homosexuals gaining access to sexualize the children in Iowa public and private schools. Popma said they weren’t going to oppose it, but that she was going to have a seat on a state committee that would oversee its implementation to warn against any abuses. I was devastated by her toothless compromise, which opened the door to degrading classroom sex talk for most Iowa children, including many of you now with OC Pride.
Most of you, I imagine, were vulnerable children when this government-dictated sexual sewer was launched in the classrooms. As Catholic scholar Randy Engel has written, “Under the guise of ’education’, the advocates of the new sexual catechesis conspired toward the premature seduction of the child. Having been robbed of the natural protection to their tender psyche normally accorded to children during the latency period, the child is systematically exposed to a barrage of sexual stimuli and images in the classrooms. These images are impressed into the memory and imagination. They return – both voluntarily and involuntarily, to stimulate the libido. The child finds it more and more difficult, if not impossible, to remain chaste. Base sexual instincts are released, and a pattern of sexual aggressiveness emerges. Because of the nature of sexual ‘knowing’ (1 Sam. 1:19-20, et al) which unlike other types of learning such as math or history, involve the passions, damage done to the child is often irreparable.”
Once they blasphemed the transcendent God as “myth”, then the revolutionaries attacked God’s precepts and laws governing sex as mere “mythology” with the necessary arrogance and ridicule added to it. They replaced it with a materialistic view of life. Private, loving and intimate marital union became naturalistic and animalistic -not any different than any other bodily function. Oh, such degradation they’ve brought us.
Casting God as mythology was not the only change in the lexicon. Here’s another example. The ever so misguided chaplain at Dordt College, Aaron Baart, himself appears to be a victim of the neglect of the generation before him. In the 1970s the sex educators worked to change language with any moral content. A national sex-ed group called SIECUS then wrote that homosexuality should no longer be called deviant but a variant of sexual practices. The moral scrubbing of God’s Word is rather clear if one listens to just a few minutes of Aaron Baart’s talks on sex, where he, too, calls homosexuality a “variant” on sexual lifestyles. See his slide used at a Dordt College chapel speech here.
As Dr. Melvin Anchell wrote twenty-seven years ago, “The widespread interferences by sex educators in the sexual development of the 3 to 5 year old’s can be seen in the ever increasing exhibitionism and voyeurism that has become a part of our everyday culture.” Is there any wonder porn is out of control? We did it to them!
Or as French writer Claude Tresmontant wrote, “One can massacre children by a bombardment, but one can also slowly depress them, demean them, degrade them, turn them from their finality, and that under the influence of the ambivalent milieu, of the teaching one gives them, of the vision of the world one proposes to them. Along these lines one can degenerate children.” Homosexuals and others lost to heterosexual sin, please forgive my peers who were in authority. My generation played a serious role in your degeneration.
The sex perverts got the US government to put lots of money into these sex-ed curriculum’s, including the diversionary courses designed to keep the children of offended parents still sitting in the classes. They were called ‘abstinence courses’ and were aggressively pushed by Leslee Unruh and the Alpha Center in Sioux Falls. RTP challenged her while churches, high schools, Northwestern College and many more welcomed her in. We even leafleted her 1,000-person annual banquet one year in the early 1990s. See our flier here. I warned, “She cannot teach about marital union apart from Christ, apart from His Word, apart from their parents and apart from Godly preaching. If the parents and elders aren’t doing their jobs, then call them to repent but don’t try to replace that which God has ordained. You will only teach sexual hypocrisy to the kids…and they will see through it soon enough!” I still have a file full of angry letters from Christians throughout this region who welcomed Unruh’s brand of classroom sex talk. Time and again I witnessed the pulpits yield to Alpha Center-type abstinence instruction. I looked at her 990 IRS tax returns about ten years ago and between her two so-called Christian pro-life groups she was personally pocketing $160,000+ that year. Unruh figured out what the humanists all know – “Sex sells!”
For a generation now, these Christ-less courses have primarily taught sexual hypocrisy to most children in the name of God. While going through these courses, those who managed to be married as virgins, did so due to an extra measure of God’s grace in their lives and not because of them.
But let’s back up a bit so you can understand what I’m doing here today. The perverse sexual culture of the 1920s in Berlin was being amplified across Germany. The epi-center of this sexual debauchery was Magnus Hirschfeld and his Institute for Sex Research (ISR) in Berlin. Hirschfeld was one of the first since the so-called Enlightenment to openly advocate for making homosexuality and transgenderism normal. In a high-profile German court case Hirschfeld testified that “homosexuality was part of the plan of nature and creation just like normal love.” His testimony caused outrage all over Germany. Hirschfeld kept a massive deviant sex library at the ISR in Berlin.
In December of 1930 Hirschfeld was brought to America by Dr. Harry Benjamin and Dr. William Robinson to speak at the American Society of Medical History to spread his filth here, too. Meanwhile, the 19th century had been devastating to the churches of the Reformation in Germany. With them mostly emasculated the Church leader’s primary response to Hirschfeld was silence, not unlike the churches of NW Iowa today. As a result, the Nazi youth movement sensed a political opportunity to capture the anger of the common man against Hirschfeld’s movement, and on May 6, 1933 they moved in on his library of perversion. They started their infamous book burning program that night, burning 20,000 volumes of what E. Michael Jones called, graphic sexual material. They also found and burned all the counseling files belonging to homosexual Nazi officers, who had previously been sent to Hirschfeld by court appointment. He was using their sex files for political leverage.
As the Nazis were being swept into power, much of ISR’s sexual perverted archives still made it out to France and then, on to America. With the help of the American doctors mentioned above Hirschfeld’s library made it to Bloomington, IN, to the Kinsey Institute on the University of Indiana campus. From there Alfred Kinsey, himself a homosexual, provided fake scientific legitimacy on sexual perversion from the 1960s up through today. The Kinsey Institute set the standards and influenced public policy, state by state, on almost all government mandated classroom sex-ed in America. Hundreds of thousands of Iowans, alone, have been degraded by such.
This brings us to today. If we sit idly by much longer then how soon before another socialist Nazi political movement rises to capture such indignation and, again, lead confused common folk to their destruction? When the Erastian ecclesiastical cowards fail to act it has serious consequences. Meanwhile, the ‘Nazis’ over at Facebook just censured 800 conservative and libertarian groups last week by shutting down their community pages without real cause. They had fan pages of tens of millions of people. The ‘Nazis’ at Amazon are now starting to censure scholarly books for sale on their site, whose theology and history they don’t like. And in denying limited shelf space to the millions of other published books on the market, the Orange City library board itself, engages in a type of censuring. It’s telling, though, the books they do shelve.
I don’t want some radical socialist political party to come forth and do what the churches should be doing. I am done waiting on the adults in the homes, elders in these churches, school teachers and college professors to repent to Christ and take back their duties.
I’m not representing any political party. I’m standing here nearly alone. I’ve asked God to use this witness to call out to those adults in authority to tremble before Him, to fall on their knees and repent and then do their duties. It starts with Pastors admitting to themselves that their claim, “I’m just called to preach the Gospel” often boasted without admitting that their self-imposed limitations to this claim are not Biblical. May each of you elders and pastors be as encouraged as I was by Rev. Sacha Walicord of Grace Reformed Presbyterian church here in Orange City when he stood, nearly alone among pastors, opposed to the Orange City Library Board’s transgender books and said, “We won’t roll over,” he said. “We will stand up and we will fight.” Elders and pastors in your humility reach out to Rev. Walicord and the other faithful men who have stood up. Be humbled and encouraged as to how Christ is using them!
Only now do I plead with the homosexuals and those lost in all kinds of sexual debauchery and pornography to end their self-delusions. When it comes to sexual conduct under God there is no diversity of morality. Marten Woudstra’s ‘homosexual orientation’ was a lie! No matter how loud you scream, mock and ridicule to suppress your consciences, those who receive the love of Christ and the forgiveness of their sins through His shed blood and who then turn in joyful obedience to His Law – are not haters! The ultimate act of love which Christ’s sinless gift provides to those of us wretches who receive the gift of true faith in Him and turn from their sin, can never be hate. And I know this personally to be true.
Homosexuals – come to see your sin and your past redeemed! See that the harm the adults did to you as children will also be redeemed. Begin to walk away from your degeneration and embrace true regeneration by the work of the Holy Spirit! Then go back with the love of Christ and the full assurance of the forgiveness of your repentant sins and call on the adults who harmed you as a child, to join you in faith and repent of their sins. Let us pray mightily that God will use this to stir another Reformation!
Meanwhile, continuing my 25-year stand for Christ I cannot stand by and let the adults – this time the shameful Orange City library board – bring the next group of little children into their foul sexual reality without a firm resistance. I have checked out, from the Orange City library, several of the books targeting 4- & 5-year old’s which the Drag Queens will likely be reading to children here in Orange City this evening. These copies owned by the city of Orange City, IA will not be part of those they get to read, as I am going to do what the German church leaders should have done in 1933. I am now going to burn these copies. God be praised!
