The following comes from a June 1 story in Time Magazine.
How Americans think about sex—and who they have it with—has changed dramatically in a short period of time. In a new study, researchers find that people in the U.S. are now a lot more open to same-sex experiences.
The research, published today in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, analyzed survey data from roughly 30,000 Americans from 1973 to 2014. People in the nationally representative General Social Survey were asked about their sexual behavior and attitudes about same-sex experiences.
The number of Americans who had had sex with someone of the same sex doubled between 1990 and 2014—for both men (4.5% in 1990 to 8.2% in 2014) and women (3.6% in 1990 to 8.7% in 2014). These increases didn’t appear to be driven exclusively by people who identify as gay or lesbian, but by people who have had sex with people both sexes, says study author Jean Twenge, a psychology professor at San Diego State University and author of the book Generation Me. The percentage of people who have had sex with both men and women shot up from 3.1 % in 1990 to 7.7%….
The survey also looked at what people thought about same-sex hookups. Back in 1973, the prevailing opinion was not great; only 11% of Americans believed that there was no problem with sexual relations between two adults of the same sex. By 1990, that number had crept to just 13%. But since then, people have gotten cozy with the idea of same-sex hookups. In 2014, 49% of people surveyed—and 63% of Millennials—stated that this kind of relationship was “not wrong at all.”
The SKY IS FALLING. Because we ARE UNDER ATTACK from WITHIN! The full article by © Marita Vargas is telling. Last paragraph from ‘Did R. Catholic Church create socialism in the US?’ @ renewamerica.com …..Those pictures of Pope Francis’ visit with President Obama this past September show two men who delight in each other’s company because they are in agreement on political matters. Barak Obama is advancing the Pope’s agenda by bringing European-styled socialism to our shores and driving us to our knees. If we have any sense at all while we our on our knees, we will pray to the God of heaven to deliver us.
…..This article tells the hidden history of how we arrived at this point in time. It explains ‘the attack from within’ the church.
Maybe there is nothing new under the sun. It’s long been a popular belief that young women tend, more than men to experiment sexually with other women. In lesbian culture there is a term “LUG” it means Lesbian Until Graduation. I can think of a half dozen women in college, including one I dated, who were involved with other women and are now happily married (except one who lost her husband in Iraq) Somehow, I don’t think the phenomina described here is the end of American civilization.
It’s also been a long popular belief among the dazed and the duped, that there is no such thing as the eternal fires of hell. Habitual unrepentant mortal sinners will be caught off guard upon their speedy arrival. “HIF” IOW “HELL IS FOREVER”
LUG =1 BIG YUK & “OMG the sky is falling” = Poor hostages to the devil
St. Dominic Savio, Please, on behalf of those held hostage by the devil, intercede on behalf of all poor souls who are still choosing a bullet train to hell.
You sound really disappointed that people can and do change. Yes, I suppose there was a lot of “experimenting”, too, in the harems of King Solomon and those of the Islamic caliphs — which just proves that polygamy and polyandry do not work very well.
Oh Anne… I’m not disappointed at all. I’m thrilled to report that with the tragic exception I mentioned, all of these girls are happily married to good men with several adorable children. I also know several lesbian couples who are raising wonderful kids. My sense is that children have a better shot at success with two same-gender loving parents than with a single parent.
So now the children are out of the frying pan into the fire.
The children who have been put into same sex homes that is.
And regarding my last post, C&H, do not be too sure that all this will not end America. After all, when Solomon took all those foreign, pagan wives, whom he could not possibly have made all happy, it was the beginning of the end of the Kingdom of Israel. All those sons and daughters of his jostling for power created much chaos which led to the downfall of the kingdom. Besides they brought in idolatry — the worship of gods and goddesses who practiced rampant promiscuity. (to be continued)..
(continued) It takes stable relationships to raise really stable children and a stable society, and in this country the majority of the young men in prison do not have fathers at home. Boys and girls raised mainly by women, unless some other good father figure steps in, most often get into trouble. And high crime rips a nation apart.
To get an education (which parents pay good money for!) is a tremendous privilege! Many kids in developing countries grow up in horrible conditions, with little hope of schooling! A young person needs to develop maturity, good character, a good moral conscience, and plenty of adult responsibility, when preparing for adulthood. College is NOT a place that parents pay good money for– so a kid can become a deviant, sick, immature, immoral, IRRESPONSIBLE liberal-leftist “hippie,” or even a low-life criminal!! Colleges should KICK OUT immature, immoral juvenile delinquents, who do dope, premarital sex, and deviant sexual sins of all types!
Our American civilization ended in the filthy, irresponsible 1960’s. The “Death Culture” replaced it. We have a responsibility to God, to destroy the “Death Culture” forever, and reclaim our TRUE America!
Yes, the SKY IS FALLING– and overfed, over-indulged, rich, fat, lazy, morally-weak “Death Culture” Americans are too afraid to admit it! A good MORAL CONSCIENCE, and ADULT MATURITY, and RESPONSIBILITY, is what is sadly missing, here! When our Nation is so destroyed by Satanic “Death Culture” forces from within– then, the Devil will take over, and deal a horrible death blow to our country, as we know it. Our American Democracy is a Christian form of government– and it takes Christian Virtue, to maintain it! There are necessary MORAL LIMITS to all American freedoms! ADULT FREEDOM FOR AMERICAN CITIZENS IS A BIG RESPONSIBILITY!!
Does this fall into the same category with “who am I to judge” ? sick, sick, sick. This is all about, whom ever is the biggest freak wins, no holds bared and especially if it feels good do it. Look at all the piercings, tattoos, implants ect ect ect. I asked a young lady with several piercings, why, is it about whoever has the latest wins ? She said yes, I guess. I suggested to take a large nail and hammer and to drive it through her skull (just kidding of course) because no one else would and she looked at me in disbelief. I said, well its all about winning, right ? I hope I got through to her so she would stop with the insanity. God save us.
All this tattooing is a blood ritual, Joe. I have said before that no one gets away with anything, they just think they do. These people are subconscienciously punishing themselves with excessive tattooing and piercings.
Well, I guess those who are “gung ho” on diminishing the world’s population should be pleased with this when some new unknown disease pops up and kills all these men, along with any heterosexual couples who practice sodomy. Can’t say they have not been warned.
I guess the Lord Jesus Christ really meant it when he said that the meek inherit the earth.
Has it been forgotten, that to have such a low-class, immoral interest to indulge in sex perversions— is a sign of both moral deviance, and mental illness? We have many immoral, unstable, immature, subversive, liberal-leftist CRIMINALS– with NO MORAL CONSCIENCE!– leading the Nation, and leading many of our churches! So “open-minded,” their brains fell out!! What a tragedy!! What all of these young people need desperately– is the traditional home and family, and traditional Christianity! And DUMP all of the immoral, immature, subversive, Godless, pagan, “Death Culture” leftist-liberals, out of America, forever!
Our priests ought to get busy, hearing confessions of all young Catholics who may have committed the sins in this new book! These people, suffering in the jaws of Satan– need the help of our Church, to reform their lives!
Sinners hearing confessions of sinners?
YFC— The Sacrament of Penance is there to help poor sinners, and to give them the heavenly grace, to reform their lives, and gradually make their way to Heaven! A most WONDERFUL gift, the Sacrament of Penance! The priest stands in the place of Christ, and it is really Christ to Whom you confess your sins, Christ Who absolves you of your sins, and Christ Who lifts you up, and gives you the grace to succeed, and leave behind the rags of your sins, and walk out of the confessional, clothed in His heavenly Love and Light, ready to start a new life! “Go, and sin no more!”
SORRY– but I meant the above post, as a reply to the post of ANONYMOUS, not YFC!! I got the two of them mixed up, as we have so little time, and severe word limits, for these posts!
Probably just means people are less afraid to admit it.

Here’s the reason: Sadly, the Sisters of Mercy have approved of an openly transgender high schoolteacher at Catholic Mercy High School in San Francisco.
The English teacher is a woman, but now she self-identifies as a man.
What’s worse — the Sisters of Mercy who run the school think it’s fine to have the transgender woman dressed as a man teaching at the all-girls school.
To put a transgender schoolteacher in a Catholic classroom is worse than telling students that 2 plus 2 equals 5. It’s a…
NYC Doubles Down on Arrest Rooms
Already, local businesses and organizations are under the financial gun if they so much as guess a person’s 31 possible genders wrong.
One mistaken pronoun and employers are looking at a $250,000 fine.
Truly, it’s mind-boggling that this is where Barack Obama has led us a nation.
No, I should restate that: It’s mind-boggling that we’ve allowed Barack Obama to take us to this point of utter moral and cultural confusion.
But there is growing evidence that Americans are rejecting the “newspeak” of the Obama administration.
