Valentine’s Day Takes A Macabre Twist

Channel 10 in Columbus, Ohio, reported on Wednesday that the El Paso Zoo has a new program to promote Valentine’s Day.

The article reports:

Looking to get yourself a present this Valentine’s Day? The El Paso Zoo has you covered. It will name a cockroach after your ex and then feed it to a meerkat live on camera.

You can message the zoo on Facebook with your ex’s name, then wait patiently for February 14 to watch the roach get devoured during the “Quit Bugging Me” meerkat event, which will live-stream on Facebook and the zoo’s website. The names of those exes will also be displayed around the meerkat exhibit and on social media starting February 11. The zoo calls it “the perfect Valentine’s Day gift.”

…”This is a fun way to get the community involved in our daily enrichment activities,” El Paso Zoo event coordinator Sarah Borrego told CBS News. “The meerkats love to get cockroaches as a snack and what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than by feeding them a cockroach named after your ex!”

Wow. Just wow. Please follow the link and read the entire article if you choose to get involved!

The Next Cultural Revolution

Wesley Smith at the National Review posted an article today about the next cultural fad–polyamory. The Scientific American posted an article on Valentine’s day entitled, “New Sexual Revolution: Polyamory May Be Good for You.” The subtitle of the article was, “What swinging couples and committed polyamorists can teach monogamists about love.” Now in case you are wondering why I am posting this, there is a very simple reason. This is the type of article introduced at the beginning of a push to change a societal norm. I am sure if you go back a number of years, you will find the same sort of article about homosexuality. Unfortunately, I suspect we will soon begin to see articles of this sort of pedophilia.

The article in the Scientific American states:

“People in these relationships really communicate. They communicate to death,” said Bjarne Holmes, a psychologist at Champlain College in Vermont. All of that negotiation may hold a lesson for the monogamously inclined, Holmes told LiveScience.

“They are potentially doing quite a lot of things that could turn out to be things that if people who are practicing monogamy did more of, their relationships would actually be better off,” Holmes said. [6 Scientific Tips for a Successful Marriage]

Heterosexual monogamy is the foundation of our society. We need to be suspicious of anyone who tries to undermine that. Remember, when you take away the foundation, the building falls down.
