Gary interviews author and screenwriter Brian Godawa about his short film and now full-length novel, Cruel Logic.
I’m no longer shocked by what I read in the news these days. What would have turned people’s stomachs 30 or 40 years ago, now are met with a dismissive “Whatever.” The latest once-thought-to- be moral atrocity has to do with “zoophilia” (from the Greek zōion, meaning “animal,” from which our words zoology and zodiac are derived, and philia, “friendship” or “love,” as in Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love)—the practice of sexual activity between humans and animals (bestiality).
I’ve always maintained that a sexual slippery slope follows when the biblical account of marital and sexual relationships is dismissed as primitive, religious, “unscientific,” politically incorrect, and an attempt to “define deviancy down.” Since the Bible condemns bestiality (Ex. 22:19; Lev. 18:23; 20:15-16; Deut. 27:21), it must now be morally acceptable. Whatever is right in the Bible must be wrong, and what is wrong is now right. There’s a verse for that:
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! (Isa. 5:20)
Much of today’s moral theory is constructed by special interests groups. They are the new law makers. Law is an inescapable concept. All rulers act in the name of some god, whether the people, themselves, the State, some false god, unbridled power, or the God who made heaven and earth. There is no neutrality.
Why it Might Be OK to Eat Your Neighbor
The most damning assessment of a matter-only cosmos devoid of a Creator is that we got to this place in our evolutionary history by acts of violence whereby the strong conquered the weak with no one to support or condemn them. Why It Might Be OK to Eat Your Neighbor repeatedly raises the issue of accounting for the conscience, good and evil, and loving our neighbor. It’s shocking to read what atheists say about a cosmos devoid of meaning and morality.Buy Now
