We are witnessing an amazing time in history. Could we really ever imaging a time when a woman would be testifying before Congress that she is having so much sex that, although she can afford the expense of a Georgetown Law education, she is unable to afford the contraceptive and abortifacient costs necessary to support her nymphomaniacal habits? In fact it is so bad that she needs the government to mandate that these expenses be covered by a dictate to health care insurance providers. 

Rush doesn’t need me to come to his defense, nor does Miss Fluke need me to condemn her, indeed her comments before congress and before the country should be condemnation enough. Who remembers when women had enough self respect to not brag about the fact that they were “sleeping around”? President Obama thinks her parents should be proud of her. Would he really be proud of Sasha or Malia if they were sleeping with every other man on campus? Maybe he would, I doubt it, but pride is not the first word to describe the emotions I would feel about my daughter if I discovered she was acting the slattern. The terms Rush used to describe her may have been many things including impolite and a bit crude (he has since apologized for the “insulting word choices”), but they were certainly not inaccurate to describe Miss Fluke’s behavior.  

We should actually thank Rush for providing us the opportunity to clarify for ourselves that we are in fact becoming, as a nation, pimps. A pimp is someone who procures sexual partners for a prostitute. If we determine that under Obama’s health care system we must provide free contraception and abortifacients for women then are we not facilitating the procurement of sexual partners? Do we really want to do this, to be the pimp for American women?  Maybe this is too harsh of a way to phrase this, but it is about time we started to look at what we are becoming as a nation. For all of the shocking language Rush has used, the most shocking thing to me is not his language but the behavior he is accurately portraying.

Again, my point is not to condemn Fluke, she has do deal with her own choices (I would not even care but that she has forced her behavior into public where we have to deal with it), but the situation does scream out for some common sense to be applied. We are a nation awash in sex and we are in serious need of some shame for our public acceptance of and championing of such boorish and animalistic behavior. There is no place in the church for the acceptance of this behavior or for the condemnation of one who points out the obvious truth.

Jesus sat and drew in the sand while the woman caught in adultery was facing her accusers. Her sin was obvious, she was caught and she was facing a stoning for her behavior. She was scared and probably a bit ashamed. The men around her were ready to do the deed until Jesus caught them up short and asked that the one who had not sinned, or perhaps participated in the woman’s sin, start the “festivities”. It did not take long for each one of them to examine their conscience and realize that they were all culpable in this woman’s sin and in fact all were guilty of sin before the law. In the face of this truth they dropped their instruments of punishment and death and walked away.

If only Miss Fluke were this woman. She would have been sheepishly dragged before Congress and faced the shame of having her deeds broadcast to the world. She would be a woman looking for one kind man to step in and come to her rescue. She might even be thinking all of these men are hypocrites: they want a sexualized culture but try to trample on those that they exploit.

But, alas, she is not the woman caught in adultery. Instead she is the woman boasting in her adultery and rather than facing the condemnation of the world, she is being applauded for her courage and told that her parents should be proud of her. She is not even in the position of being a grateful woman thankful for a savior who stepped in and said if no one else condemns you than neither do I now go and from now on sin no more.

Faced with that contrast what are we to do? Should we stand idly by and act like her behavior is normal? Maybe I do not have to point out that what Miss Fluke did was wrong since everyone should know that what she did was wrong. Maybe it was not even necessary for Rush to point out that what she did was wrong, but I don’t think so, I am glad he did – even if his pointer was actually a blunt instrument.

While the nation (our children as well) was watching, it was necessary to stand against the tide and say, no, in fact what she is doing is reprehensible. It is a sad commentary on our culture that a radio host had to state the obvious, had to stand up for righteousness and purity. Instead of being pilloried, maybe he should be applauded for standing up for moral values by simply stating the obvious.

I am glad that he exposed this charade for what it was, and is, an attempt to make theU.S.government the pimp for American women. It is shameful what this administration is trying to do. It is unbecoming of people of faith to countenance it and it is high time we spoke out forcefully against it.

No I don’t condemn Miss Fluke, I see her as a dupe of the system of sexual exploitation that this nation is becoming and I would say to her go and sin no more. That may very well be lost on her and it may seem like condemnation to her, but I do not think that we want to become the facilitator of her sexual peccadillos.
