Moral Corruption in USA | Olympian Lolo Jones’ Virginity Declaration

  • Posted June 3, 2012

“Everything is lawful for me,” but not everything is beneficial.”Everything is lawful for me,” but I will not let myself be dominated by anything. “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food,” but God will do away with both the one and the other. The body, however, is not for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body; God raised the Lord and will also raise us by his power. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take Christ’s members and make them the members of a prostitute? Of course not! (Or) do you not know that anyone who joins himself to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For “the two,” it says, “will become one flesh.” But whoever is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. Avoid immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the immoral person sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body. – 1 Corinthians 6:12-20

The 2012 Olympic games are approaching and several unusual stories have garnered attention. One of these stories was the continued fight of “The Boxing Girls of Kabul,” which Procinctu covered a few months back. Not only have the Afghan women battled those who want them in a burqa, but also all that goes along with international boxing competition. 18-year-old Sadaf Rahimi still has dreams of competing in the Olympics, however, her chance at a wild-card spot has been jeopardized by a rough showing at the the world championships. All things considered, the fight of “The Boxing Girls of Kabul” is much bigger than any medal can convey. Then we have Lolo Jones….


The latest story is hurdler Lolo Jones‘ virginity declaration. Thanks largely to a segment on HBO’s Real Sports, those who weren’t already following her on twitter, now were. Upon being asked about her Twitter revelation, Lolo responded:

“…I want to wait until I’m married to have sex. My mom, she was with my dad for 20 years and never got married and they’re not together anymore, so I just want that, I want to have that solid bond. It’s just something, a gift I want to give to my husband…so…but please understand this journey has been hard. I’m not….If there’s virgins out there, I’m going to let them know, it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life, harder than training for the Olympics, harder than graduating from college… has been to stay a virgin before marriage. I’ve been tempted..I’ve had plenty of opportunities.”

Lo2 went on to say that her status used to be ‘cute,’ but after age 24, it’s not cute and you get judged a lot, and then the guys exit when they find out.

Really, a separate post can be dedicated to Lolo’s background and obstacles she has overcome in life. But we are going to focus on this issue.

At Procinctu, the tagline is “breakthrough the conventional and empower yourself.” However, it’s very disappointing that Lolo’s virginity declaration is considered ‘unconventional’ this day and age. The moral corruption in USA and the whole world is more and more prevalent.

 

Unfortunately, Lolo’s breed has become an endangered species. Several sources even point to the number of people engaging in premarital sex to be about 95% (1, 2) … That leaves it increasingly difficult to maintain a chaste lifestyle, just by simple math.

This isn’t the most comfortable topic to address, but the comfort zone needs to be tested to truly grow. That said, we understand that readers may drop by the paragraph, but this is written for the ones left standing in the end. If this has a impact on only a few people, it still will have been worth the risk.

So back on topic.

Moral Corruption in USA

Lolo is a fast woman….well, at least on the track.

.

Interestingly, it’s ironic that the suppressors in Afghanistan want enslavement of women through constraint, coverings, house arrest, etc. But the suppressors of Lolo’s society want to enslave women through ‘total liberation.’ If it feels good, do it. It’s no secret that almost all you see on TV can be traced back to 6 major media corporations. Then also understand that the constant bombardment of material showing women as merely sexual objects is no accident. As we touched on before, these are simple psychology tactics. Whereby in only a few decades, they are able to change a society incrementally through reciprocation. They push the boundaries, then relinquish a little knowing that they pushed the boundaries, so that the other side thinks they won. Repeat that several times and the initial ‘pushed boundary’ becomes norm. That is why Lolo and people of her value set can NEVER compromise their beliefs. Further, when she does find her other half, they need to instill the same values in their children.

The point of this post is to explain how Lolo’s stance can actually give you more liberty than the extremes noted above. Additionally, this will be explained first through secular lenses, and second through a Christian viewpoint. We know that about 77% of Americans identify themselves as Christians, as do over 2 billion people worldwide. We also aren’t too naive to know that not all them practice the faith. So whatever your banner, hopefully you will benefit something from this writing.

MIND ORIGINATES ALL

We know that all things begin in the mind. Whether you are religious or not, this fact still remains. Everything from the vilest of deeds to the most innovative inventions all begin as a thought or an idea. Yet, humans have never fully understood the power of their own minds or how to harness that power. The secularist says “I am God” and the Christian says “I am created in the image of God”…….neither of them act like it.

“Sex desire is the most powerful of human desires.” -Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich

How many people do you know who let their physical expressions overtake their presence of mind. How many people had to drastically change their life path because they were blinded by sexual desire? Or how many times have you heard, “Man, I’m really glad a had that one night stand, I felt so clean in the morning?”

…my one night stand

Napoleon Hill was Andrew Carnegie’s right hand man. Eventually, he was tasked to follow closely the most successful men of his time and write a book on their tactics for success. The book was called “Think and Grow Rich,” and in it, Mr. Hill dedicated a whole chapter to “Sex Transmutation.” He regarded sexual desire as the HIGHEST form of stimuli by which the human mind responds. One can benefit greatly when ‘Transmuting’ or channeling that energy from physical expression into a thought of another nature.

“When driven by this desire, men develop keenness of imagination, courage, will-power, persistence, and creative ability unknown to them at other times……..which may be used as powerful creative forces in literature, art, or in any other profession or calling..” -N. Hill

We’re human! You can’t just stifle a desire for sex, but with discipline, you can redirect the energy to accomplish something else. Those who are able to analyze their situations and not give in to the temptation experience the true liberty. The liberty of not being a slave to your emotions and temptations. The liberty in learning to foster them into whatever you wish to attain.

Luckily, if you are still breathing, you can learn how to use the sexual force of which Mr. Hill speaks. Sex is totally natural, but it also has its place. We have an animal instinct for sex, but there is a degree of separation between humans and other mammals, no?

The trick is to learn the art of sexual transmutation. Throughout history, men who have learned to properly exploit their ‘womanly-inspired motivation’ have seen remarkable achievements. “Think and Grow Rich” even lists some of these men such as Washington, Jefferson, Bonaparte, Shakespeare, Lincoln, Jackson, etc. The success of these men correlated with their handling of their ‘highly sexed’ nature, so states Mr. Hill.

Wilt was known to ‘score’ ALOT

With anything, there are exceptions. Just because one has a lot of sex doesn’t mean they ‘can’t’ achieve anything. Wilt Chamberlain is brought up because some people ‘look-up’ to him not just for his 5th place of all time scoring in the NBA……but for his claim of having thousands of different women. But an exception doesn’t discount the point and fact of the matter.

If you are fortunate to have a highly sexed nature, you have the chance to harness that energy even more so than others. Just remember, with it comes more responsibility and a requirement for more will-power.

Much like man can succumb to drugs and alcohol, he can also succumb to sex and let it control him. Let us be mindful of such. Plus, isn’t it better to put first our dignity as humans? Which leads us to the Christian point of view…..

 

CHRISTIAN

“Everything is lawful for me,” but not everything is beneficial.”Everything is lawful for me,” but I will not let myself be dominated by anything. “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food,” but God will do away with both the one and the other. The body, however, is not for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body; God raised the Lord and will also raise us by his power. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take Christ’s members and make them the members of a prostitute? Of course not!

Therefore, glorify God in your body. – 1 Corinthians 6:12-20

Like an open city with no defenses is the man with no check on his feelings. – Proverbs 25:28
Let marriage be honored among all and the marriage bed be kept undefiled, for God will judge the immoral and adulterers. Hebrews 13:4
So turn from youthful desires and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord with purity of heart. 2 Timothy 2:22
Like a troubled fountain or a polluted spring is a just man who gives way before the wicked. Proverbs 25:26
This is the will of God, your holiness: that you refrain from immorality, that each of you know how to acquire a wife for himself in holiness and honor, not in lustful passion as do the Gentiles who do not know God; not to take advantage of or exploit a brother in this matter, for the Lord is an avenger in all these things, as we told you before and solemnly affirmed. For God did not call us to impurity but to holiness. Therefore, whoever disregards this, disregards not a human being, but God, who (also) gives his holy Spirit to you. Thessalonians 4:3-8
Jesus answered them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin. John 8:34

The number one reason for sex is for procreation. The pleasure derived from sex is a gift from God for partaking in His plan of populating the world. However, society has distorted sex. Instead of procreation being the intent, procreation is now the consequence. This is a perversion of what was intended and a mockery of God. Yet how many ‘Christians’ do you know yield to the Creator? How many actually keep themselves in check in order to please God? Even among Christians, the number that use sex in its proper context is dwindling.

Further, considering that sex is a continuation of the sacrament of Marriage, by having numerous partners, you end up perverting the ‘oneness’ of that Marriage. When man is united with his wife, they are to become one flesh. But how can that be, when he has already become one flesh with another, and another, and yet another?

Too many fall over lust instead of falling in love. Dudes are shameless in their attempts to add another notch to the belt, and the devils with breasts are oh, so willing to comply. What we have left are beings who are prisoners to their own minds. And since all originates in the mind, they become captive to their desires.

Luckily for the Christian, if they truly change their heart, Christ already died for their sins. They can still see redemption and conquer their mortal sin. But too many take that for granted and don’t actually change. Humans are imperfect and people make mistakes, but to do it over and over? And for Catholics… the ones who live in this mortal sin, then show up at Mass and take part in the Eucharist? That is an affront to God, a mockery. It would be best for you to be in communion with God through spirit and not take part in the physical Eucharist until you are ready to remove the shackles of mortal sin.

 

The prevailing theme between both the secular and the Christian is self control. Both show you that while sex has its purpose of procreation, sexual energy can be harnessed for something else. For the secular, its art, or work, or whatever you want to improve. For the Christian, it’s all of that, but also a sacrifce to better serve God.

Look, whether a Christian or not, people make decisions and how they take responsibility for those decisions is up to them. Many have been put into uncomfortable or unplanned situations as a result of sex. Some of them have taken responsibility for their actions and helped bring a beautiful life into the world. Props to them for standing up. But there are those who take no responsibility. They expect to keep doing as they please while others pick up the tab. Unfortunately, those of the latter group are becoming increasingly more common.

 

SOCIETY

Society is general has become totally wicked. Girls feel they have to put out to keep a guy around? Some can’t even get asked to a movie if it’s known they won’t give it up. So why must guys pressure girls into sex? They can’t control their urges? Really? Why are girls so willing to comply? They have no self-respect either? Really? This leaves the ‘virgins’ in a tough position because dudes know they can get it elsewhere. “Why waste time with her, she won’t give me any?”

This attitude has further corrupted the culture. Sex used to be a procreation tool, now its been perverted into a pleasure tool. The pleasure used to be a gift from God, now its the reason for the act. Women used to be ‘revered goddesses’ of which man tried to impress, now they are merely sex objects. Women used to look for the alpha male with integrity. Now, its the metro-sexual or the ‘bad-boy’ that turns her on. Look around, the worse they are treated, the more attracted they become. Where did this all come from?

Are we a product of the system or is the system a product of us? Things like the internet, Facebook, and Twitter are great for information on news and events. But this constant contact and instant access has no boundaries. Pornography is available at the click of a mouse further polluting the mind. Things are just available now like never before, but there needs to be a medium by which we implement ‘instant’ into our lives.

 

DECAY DOWN TO THE ROOTS

In America, we can even zoom out and look at the big picture. We now have well over half of the population dependent on the government (and the government takes from the producers). About 8% of the population work for the government, about 10 percent do contracting work for the government, about 47 million are on Food Stamps, then there’s welfare, Medicare, Medicaid, social security. All of this has led to a smaller percentage of the population supporting a larger percentage of the population. More and more people give up their liberty and responsibility…..willingly….it’s sad.

This kind of set up brings forth a chicken or the egg type of argument. Did the nation become morally bankrupt first, and then the fiscal bankruptcy followed? Or did the fiscal bankruptcy start the avalanche by which moral bankruptcy formed. Now, so many are just looking for pleasure anywhere they can find it and aren’t willing to do the work. We don’t have a fancy graph to illustrate this point, but you could reasonably conclude that the promiscuity increased in America as the US Dollars purchasing power fell.

What were the premarital sex numbers 1900-1950? Interestingly, the purchasing power of the US Dollar has fallen 97% since 1913. The premarital sex number is at 95%. This is not a scientific algorithm by any means, but something to ponder. This moral and fiscal debasement is not limited to America, but by extension, the whole world is seeing this decay. It’s nothing new though, civilizations have come and gone in the past and usually by their own hand.

While we can’t say for sure which came first, we can say that both have happened. Corruption is on the rise and morality is part of it. We explained in the FUTURE OF SILVER  just how flawed the whole system is to begin with. We showed how through fractional reserve banking and the Federal Reserve that people no longer had to wait for their reward. The system afforded people not to be responsible, but to have it all, and have it all now. Promiscuity and immorality are part of the system?

Procinctu has spoken before on this site and on Silver For Beginners that a new paradigm is fast approaching. Things as you know them now will be a distant memory in the near future. We believe that is those who can control and exploit their emotions and energies who will find the most success in the new age. Though it is hard to say which one thing brought on this downward spiral, we can clearly see that many tactics have brought us to where we are today.

 

DELAYED GRATIFICATION

The ‘have it all now’ attitude has poisoned the culture. Whatever happened to delayed gratification?

Saving yourself until marriage has become the exception. The joy of women sharing their gift with their husbands is now somehow odd. The oneness that used to be reserved for man and woman after marriage has now been relegated to nothingness because its been done many times before. The instant gratification has changed sex from ‘procreation tool’ over to a ‘pleasure tool.’ But, for a society to be maintained, the fertility rate must be at least 2.11 per family. How is that possible when sex is used as a pleasure mechanism and not a procreation mechanism? It’s not. There is a real possibility that we can see the end of western civilization in many countries within our lifetime. All because we were so wrapped up in gratification.

Additionally, a parallel can be drawn between sex and most other things you work for in life. If it comes easy, inherited, or without much work, it is not appreciated. Conversely, if it takes much dedication, sleepless nights, and much work, then when you reach the goal, it is all the more sweeter. Did you ever hear the phrase “from shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves in three generations” or “from clogs to clogs in three generations?” Simply stated, one generation starts from scratch and builds a family wealth, the next generation goes to University and spends it, then the next generation squanders the rest and is back to scratch. Hey! That’s America in the last 100 years, isn’t it?

 

LOLO’S MESSAGE

Lolo’s virginity declaration is an act of defiance. Though the cynic in me can see that it was a brilliant marketing move on her part, it was also much more than that. She and people with the same values know that there is no retreat. If you look at her words, she says “If there are virgins out there.” So she isn’t really concerned about the negative people who will ridicule her for outing herself. She seems to be more concerned about giving those in her shoes, with her values, the assurance that it is possible to wait it out. It IS possible to maintain your values, even to the age of 29.

Maybe a girl 17 years of age is wondering, ‘How can I keep this up, I’ll have to give it up to have someone stay with me.” But Lolo shows, and even jokes about the fact she is 29 years old and still struggles with that. So it is a reassurance, and an important one at that.

Again, sex is a beautiful thing when used properly, its meant to be an extension of marriage by more wholly uniting man and woman as one. Its main function is to procreate to further develop mankind and the pleasure that comes with it is a gift from God.

The ‘wait until marriage’ crowd has become an endangered species in this world, especially among the Westerners. Can the trend be reversed, or is it too late?

 

Turning back moral corruption in USA

Moral Corruption in USASo as we face the new frontier, we have a lot of soul searching to do. How can we turn back this moral corruption in USA? Where do we want to go as individuals? Where do we want to go as a nation? Where do we want to go as people?

Can we right the ship of moral corruption in USA? Can we learn to channel our energies in a positive light? Fiscally, the point of no return has been breached. But morally, will we be able to admit what we’ve become and correct the mistakes. Sure, Dancing With the Stars and the Kardashians may divert your attention to believe otherwise, but time is running out. Eventually, Natural Law always wins. Will you be ready?

So, so much is coming our way and many will be blindsided, but first things first. Lolo, go get your gold.

 

 

Disclaimer: The author is 27 years old…male…Catholic…and gasp, a virgin…waiting for marriage………………A final thought.. (while skirting the debate of what is ‘time’).. the author has always held that upon finding a wife, he will be able to look her in the eye and say he never cheated on her or had the same thing with any other woman. For the wife in the future IS the wife now, just haven’t met her yet……Confused?…Hope not.

Update: With God’s blessing, I found my elusive virgin…. my always was, and always will be, other half. I was 29 years old when we were married. So, if you are ever not sure, or ready to give up….. it CAN be done. Lean on God and keep your purity. Speaking from experience, the reward is greater than you can imagine.
