CNN Says More Sexual Immorality Will Help Marriage and Family

There is such a better way for us. It's too much to ask, I suppose, that CNN let someone voice it on their network?

With sexual harassment and abuse dominating the headlines these days, the folks at CNN seem to have just the answer: less marital faithfulness.

Cuckolding, the act of having an adulterous partner, was recently promoted in a piece CNN absurdly entitled, “Cuckolding can be a positive for some couples, study says.” It only makes sense in a society rebelling against God and his moral order that further immorality would be held out as the solution to the problem of immorality. Down is up, after all.

CNN’s inspiration for this vacuous nonsense came from a “study” conducted by three dudes – David Ley, Justin Lehmiller, and Dan Savage. Yes, the same Dan Savage who is a sexual revolutionary who founded the Orwellian titled “It Gets Better” project to encourage kids to not only give into their sexual temptations and urges, but persevere and dig deeper into sexual sin. Because, according to his movement’s thinking, when you keep sinning you’re just sure to end up content and fulfilled.

Savage is also the notorious anti-bullying “expert” who was caught on camera at a conference swearing at, mocking, and bullying teenagers for their faith in the Bible. But if credibility isn’t necessarily his thing, perversion is, and CNN is more than happy to help him amplify it:

Today…cuckolding has become fetishized into a powerful sexual fantasy for some men, who get aroused by the idea of their romantic partner engaging in sexual activity with someone else. Women also share this fantasy, but less so than men…

And the emotions surrounding seeing your partner with someone else can add to the turn-on, explained Savage. "It's not cuckolding if there isn't an element of humiliation, degradation or denial," he said. "Our erotic imaginations have the ability to turn shame lemons into delicious kink lemonade."

Sometimes it amazes me when reading Scripture that the people murdering Jesus were so self-absorbed that they didn’t even realize they were fulfilling prophecies proving He was exactly who He said He was. How could they be so arrogantly blind to the truth right before them?

Then I read things like this CNN story, glance back at Romans 1, and realize our contemporary culture is no wiser:

“Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.” (Romans 1:24-27)

There is such a better way for us. A way that leads to happiness and contentment for all who try it – obedience to God’s moral expectations for our sexuality and sexual conduct. It always protects us and always prospers us, and yet our foolish pride keeps us searching for a way to improve upon it.

I don’t fault worldly people for continuing to promote the best ideas that the feeble, fragile world can come up with; but is it too much to ask that CNN give someone the opportunity to present and promote the best idea there has ever been – the one that begins with our obedience to God’s sovereignty and ends with our happiness?

No where in the article does CNN say that this is a solution to sexual harassment. You seem to be conflating all sex related issues together.

Reading the article it sounds like a boring puff piece on this one study. I'm not sure what you wanted CNN to do, go out and find studies on non- cuckholding to counter this? Quote the bible? Dismiss the study out of hand because it conflicts with your personal beliefs on what marriage is?

Honestly Peter if a married couple wants to have sex with a third consenting person I don't care. I don't think sexual morality is something society or the government should police. I don't think it's acceptable for anyone to pry into the personal lives of American citizens.

It's no surprise dan savage doesn't like Christianity. He's gay, and married. His life style is exactly counter to Christian sexual morality.

No where in Peter Heck's article does he say that CNN said that this was a solution to sexual harassment. You sir seem to be doing the conflating. That is nice that you don't care if a married couple wants to have sex with a third consenting person in fact you seem to feel so strongly on this subject it leads me to wonder if you have a vested personal interest in the subject.

The gentlemen writing the article in CNN put their idea's out there as has Peter Heck and I. When they are placed before the public then they should expect comments, some they will like and some not but hopefully it will lead to discussion of the topic and not personal attacks.

The search always continues for new and more exotic or disturbing ways to push the envelope. The people that decide to try this will soon find that it becomes old too and they will need to find something to one up that. It is an endless search for fulfillment and satisfaction that is never satisfied for long because it trying to fill a hole in the soul with anything other than Christ, who should be there. I believe it is why depression, suicide and drug overdoses are so common among celebrities. They basically have more money than they could ever spend, women/men at their pleasure, etc. They have everything the world could offer, yet many seem very unhappy. Part of that is because they don't have that next rung to get to, to keep chasing happiness. They have all of the vices available to them that average people try to attain. Once there is no where left to go, it can leave a person really depressed.

Adultery leads to divorce. How can they possibly think that such infidelity is good for anyone? Just more evidence of a reprobate mind. Maybe we can use some solid sociological evidence to show that good marriages are necessary for things like staying out of poverty?


“Cuckolding can be a positive for some couples, study says.”

Such as actual cuckoo birds.

All sex related issues are sex related. I think you just made the point you were attempting to disprove.

A breakdown in sexual morality in one area is definitely related to other forms of depravity.

Cnn could have just kept thher mouth shut and not given attention to this nonsense.

You just committed a personal attack while condemning personal attacks.

...ok, so maybe I don't care either what goes on in someone else's bedroom - and sure do not want the government involved - but is seems that God does care. That ought to give pause.

CNN keeps lowering the bar! It makes one wonder when they will hit the bottom of the proverbial pit, that is to say unless it's a bottomless pit.
