When I was in Taipei, Taiwan on business years ago, we were served Frog Fat Soup (among several other things that I still suspect were part of an elaborate practical joke, but that’s another topic). Apparently it is a delicacy made with the fat of frogs from a cold climate. I’m a somewhat picky eater, but when traveling internationally I try to be a good sport and sample the local cuisine. Let’s just say that one spoonful was plenty for me.
That reminds me of a different kind of Frog Soup: A metaphor a friend and I use to describe our culture. It is based on the popular example about how frogs will jump out of hot water if you toss them in it, but if you put them in cold water and slowly turn it up they’ll stay in it until they die. Just like with the frogs, our culture has slowly deteriorated to where it accepts all kinds of things that would have landed people in jail just a few decades ago.
Hence, this culture is a massive bowl of Frog Soup. We’re drowning in it. I’m not referring to the random freaks we see but the mainstreaming of perversions.
We permit the legal destruction of 3,000+ unwanted human beings each day because they get in the way of the myth of sex-without-consequences.
As I predicted earlier in the last decade, schools are beginning to teach kids as young as 5 how “normal” homosexual, bisexual and transgender behaviors are. Too many people fail to ask why the government has a mandate to teach such things. They’ll try to say that parents may not teach it at home (good for those parents!), but they can’t explain why anyone should teach it.
If you oppose the oxymoron that is “same-sex marriage,” you are considered a hater.
We do nothing about the massive amounts of pornography in our culture.
We not only tolerate but fund organizations like Planned Parenthood that, in addition to being the top destroyer of human life in the country, systematically hide statutory rape and sex trafficking (when not teaching your kids to ignore the perspectives on human sexuality that you and your religion hold).

Frog Soup is disgusting. Throw it out. Vote your values. Prepare yourself, then stand up for the truth. Stop fearing man and the future. We can’t just blame non-Christians, they are just (generally) doing and permitting what is in their job description. We need to be the light to the world and agents of change. There is a better way, and it starts with God.
