There is nothing new under the sun, said King Solomon, who knew from whence he spoke, having departed so far from righteousness in his later years that he instituted Canaanite demon worship on the Mount of Olives (1 Kings 11) that lasted 300 years, until righteous King Josiah ended the practice by, in part, "breaking down the houses of the Sodomites that were by the Temple, where the women wove hangings for Asherah" (2 Kings 23). The Asherah, or Asherim, were huge phallic poles, often carved from oak trees, that adorned the "high places" where Baal and Ashtereth were worshiped through male and female cult prostitution and the sacrifice of children (who were roasted alive).
Solomon lost his regency – for himself and all his posterity – for that idolatry, and David's United Kingdom was split in two, because there are some things that Our God – so longsuffering in so many ways – will not tolerate. Chief on the list is Canaanite demon worship, which has always been characterized by extreme sexual deviance and child murder. Abortion. LGBT perversions. There is nothing new under the sun.
Our great grandparents, no matter where they might have migrated from across the world, shared the universal condemnation of "the love that dares not speak its name." Even as late as the 1950s, homosexuality was so utterly reviled as a form of sexual deviance that it could not be mentioned "in polite company"; thus the absolute primacy of the marriage-based natural family was secure as the foundation and framework of mainstream society.
