Just when you thought the American Psychological Association couldn’t get any more psychologically unbalanced, along comes their next task force. It’s for what they call “consensual non-monogamy.”
The “Consensual Non-Monogamy Task Force” promotes the rights of people who engage in “diverse expressions of intimate relationships.” Like open relationships, swinging and “relationship anarchy.”
Relationship anarchy is not defined. . . .

Presumably these sex practices are psychologically healthy. The task force has deemed them to be “ethical.”
Since the Sexual Revolution, nearly all the accepted sexual taboos have crumbled, one after another. Few remain. But one of the few is adultery.
A recent Gallup survey found that 89 percent of Americans still believe it is wrong for a married man or woman to engage in adultery. This 9 in 10 statistic has been stable over the last two decades.
But here comes the APA, trying their best to topple that taboo. Some might say that consensual adultery is not really adultery and therefore the taboo remains. But ask any dictionary. The Oxford English Dictionary defines “adultery” as “voluntary sexual intercourse between a married person and a person who is not their spouse.” Any “consent” on the part of the jilted spouse is immaterial. . . .
According to the swingers and adulterers task force, “Finding love and/or sexual intimacy is a central part of most people’s life experience. However, the ability to engage in desired intimacy without social and medical stigmatization is not a liberty for all. This task force seeks to address the needs of people who practice consensual non-monogamy, including their intersecting marginalized identities.”
How will the APA fight for the liberty of sexual anarchists against entrenched “social and medical stigmatization”? Well, they do have an annual budget of $100 million. And sadly, loads of credibility. . . .
What about the Christian, Jewish and Muslim families whose beliefs don’t include “swinging” as a healthy lifestyle option? Why, there’s a task force on that, too!
It’s called the LGBT Religion and Spirituality Task Force. Its stated mission is to “reduce theological barriers” which “separate sexual minorities from the sources of their beliefs.” That means search and destroy. Its targets are American’s religious beliefs about sex and marriage.
This new task force against religion and the task force for swinging and adultery will probably join forces. We may see them start a new task force, this one against parents.
Once the professions are silenced and the church is shackled, one obstacle will remain. Parents will be the last “barrier” between predatory leftists at groups like the APA and your children. (Excerpt from The Stream, article by Cathy Ruse.)
