The sty is the limit

This is a you will be repulsed alert. In three... two... one....

Apparently Tylenol is convinced that American consumers, though "knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them" (Romans 1:32 NKJ).

Focus on the Family reports that the image linked above is from "the July 19 issue of The Advocate, a leading gay [sic] magazine." Homosexual sites are celebrating. No, I won't link to them.

There are so many sad ironies to this ad, and the culture that would enable it. Advocates of this particular sexual perversion come unhinged at logical progressions such as the following, but there is no logical reason why the next generation of ads wouldn't show a man and four other men, or a mixture of men and women. Or a human and a dog. Or a schoolteacher and her young student. For that matter, on the moral premises underlying this ad, there is no logical reason not to show a man with a bruised and battered woman with duct tape over her mouth, handcuffed to the headboard. Now, there's a real case for a pain-reliever.

Extreme? Repugnant? Absolutely. So is this ad.

If we do equally not feel it to be so, score one for the day-in day-out drone of the homosexual agenda, in its tireless pan-media campaign to make the abnormal seem normal.

It is a logical continuum. If what is normal and acceptable is to be defined horizontally, by human drives and desires; and if the laws of evolution (where species advance by imposing their wills on, and eliminating, the weak and defenseless) are, as the elite inform us, the framework for everything, then there simply are no barriers. There are only speed bumps. Even these are being worn away, as this ad bears witness.

But the crowning irony of the Tylenol ad is found at its foot, next to the Tylenol image, where we find the words "Stop. Think."


"Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God" (1 Corinthians 6:9-11 ESV)
