Have you noticed that as soon as one traditional moral boundary falls, then another moral standard is touted as a dreadful oppression upon humanity that must be banished in the name of free expression?

Hi, I’m Rex Rogers and this is episode #138 of Discerning What Is Best, a podcast applying unchanging biblical principles in a rapidly changing world, and a Christian worldview to current issues and everyday life.


I entitled this podcast “Satan’s Next Frontier,” meaning that the Devil is continually working his plan to counter God and Creation, Christ and the Gospel, and a biblically Christian worldview in general. So, what might be his next frontier?

Not so long ago when same-sex marriage was not yet legal in the United States, that is nationally pre-2015 when the Supreme Court of the United States in Obergefell v Hodges, “ruled that the fundamental right to marry is guaranteed to same-sex couples by both the Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution,” there were people who observed – and I was one of them – that as soon as same-sex marriage was legalized, transgenderism would be next.

The idea that trans people should be extended not only basic civil liberties as U.S. citizens but now, special civil rights, literally took off after the SCOTUS ruling on same-sex marriage, all in the name of freedom, tolerance, and inclusion. 

Gender identity, sex on birth certificates and medical documents or passports, gender as determined by children’s social inclinations, not biology or parents or doctors, transgender access to bathrooms and locker rooms and women’s sports, pronoun madness, gender identity in hiring as in Bostock v. Clayton County, in which the Supreme Court held that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects employees against discrimination because of sexuality or gender identity, gender non-binary military policy, a wholesale revolution qua propagandistic indoctrination in public school sex education and, actually, across all academic disciplines, sex change or what are now called gender-affirming hormone and surgical procedures, hijacking and changing the meaning of words, attacks on womanhood or femineity, arguing children are a threat to female self-actualization, attacks on manhood or masculinity, arguing men can menstruate, get pregnant, breastfeed. 

Do I need to go on?

Transgender activism has worked a moral and social coup upon American culture.

More than other forms of sexual orientation symbolized by LGBQ, transgenderism is more divisive and more socially destructive, undermining the most basic of society’s mores, practices, and laws. 

And trans activists know their argument can only succeed via the wholesale rejection of Christian teaching that men and women are made in the image of God and are intrinsically different from one another with unique purposes in Creation, the family, and the Will of God.

Yet for all its irrationality, transgenderism is winning. So, if transgenderism, from Bruce “Call me Caitlyn” Jenner to the latest celebrity to come out as nonbinary, if then trans is largely accepted, what’s next? What is Satan’s next moral frontier?

I suggest there are three possibilities, not necessarily in this order:

  • Euthanasia
  • Polyamory
  • Pedophilia

     I. Euthanasia

Euthanasia refers to deliberately ending someone’s life, usually to relieve suffering. Doctors sometimes perform euthanasia when it’s requested by people who have a terminal illness and are in a lot of pain.”

“In the United States, Physicians Assisted Suicide is legal in: Washington, Oregon, California, Colorado, Montana, Vermont, Washington, D.C., Hawaii.”

Different from euthanasia is “assisted suicide – alternately referred to as medical aid in dying (MAID) – means a procedure in which people take medications to end their own lives with the help of others, usually medical professionals.”

Euthanasia in its voluntary form, MAID, is widely practiced in Canada.

Euthanasia in one of its permutations is perhaps the most likely next frontier to be embraced, and soon, in the U.S. where it already has adherents, and some states have legalized forms of the practice. As “quality of life” continues to be redefined in terms of personal self-expression, and as people live longer into declining years, euthanasia will become more accepted.

    II. Polyamory

Consensual polyamory – having more than one sexual or emotional relationship at once – has become increasingly common in many countries in recent years. According to statistics published in 2021, 4 to 5 percent of the American population practices polyamory.”

“Today, there are a number of television shows and video games that have included the lifestyle in their plots, while mainstream dating sites and apps, including OkCupid, Tinder, and Hinge, now allow users to specify this type of relationship in their profiles.”

Fifty-one per cent of adults younger than thirty told Pew Research, in 2023, that open marriage was “acceptable,” and twenty per cent of all Americans report experimenting with some form of non-monogamy.”

Polyamory involves so-called consenting adults and is already widely practiced in various ways, if not as outright adultery, then as agreed upon open marriage arrangements or simply accepted, sexual promiscuity in a culture much laxer about sexual mores than it was in the 1950s. 

The likelihood polyamory will become more common is very high, as is the legalization of this form of marriage or family or social unit in local, state, and federal laws. Morality as defined in the Scripture, sexuality expressed in monogamous lifelong marriage will be dismissed as archaic and limiting.

    III. Pedophilia

Pedophilia is also being presented in a positive light. Really, sex with minors, with children? Yes, sad to say it is so.

“Nov. 8, 2022, Old Dominion University sociology and criminology professor Allyn Walker gave an interview in which he asserted the need to destigmatize pedophiles by redefining them as ‘minor-attracted persons, (MAPs).’”

“The Walker incident is not a standalone event. In fact, his advocacy for pedophiles highlights the crisis that critical theory poses for higher education, as it attempts to dismantle every social taboo and normalize every form of immoral conduct.”

“Walker advocates for the inclusion of MAPs as part of the larger LGBT community by approaching attraction to minors as an orientation and stating that ‘the fact of children’s inability to consent to sex is irrelevant to the application of the term ‘sexual orientation’ towards attractions to minors.’”

“Academia’s ideological consensus has already shifted toward acceptance of pedophilia. K-12 schools already allow for depictions of child sexuality under the guise of equity, despite a considerable resistance by parents.”

“The North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) is a pedophilia and pederasty advocacy organization in the United States. It works to abolish age-of-consent laws criminalizing adult sexual involvement with minors and campaigns for the release of men who have been jailed for sexual contacts with minors that did not involve what it considers coercion.”

A Kentucky State Senator recently suggested child sex dolls should be given to pedophile prisoners as a means to help them and reduce child abuse.

Meanwhile, the Left, as usual promoting and protecting the worst forms of human attitudes and behaviors, is now accusing anyone who raises concerns about pedophilia to be nothing more than a “new Red scare,” a new conspiracy among conservatives.

Pedophilia is yet, we hope, a less likely moral change on the horizon than euthanasia or polyamory, but pedophilia is already practiced in rampant kiddie pornography, child sex trafficking and abuse in the U.S., also now in avant-garde sexual liberation circles, and it is being promoted as somehow not psychologically damaging to children and in some weird way, good for them. 

If abortion can be embraced as a human right, and if sexual identity is now considered the highest level of human expression, then is it too much to believe that normalization of pedophilia is far behind?

The problem with each of these trends is that none of them – euthanasia, polyamory, pedophilia – align with the values of biblical Christianity – which one could suggest is exactly why they may be Satan’s next frontier of moral change. God forbid.
