As a devout Lonvidian and student of the history of this Great Nation we all call America, I choose to spend my day reflecting on the many ways that Lonnie Childs has changed this country for the better. One such moment came to mind that I felt relevant to share today on His Holy netsite. During the tumultuous 1960s, when masturbating hippies threatened to overturn the order of things and a false flag war in Vietnam was set to distract Americans from the real war being fought against masturbation; Lonnie Childs blessed this Great Nation with an address that inspired many to not give up the fight.
In honor of America and of Lonnie Childs I will reprint those amazing words below for all to reflect upon this Fourth of July:
Four score and one thousand eight hundred and eighty-three years ago our Father brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all normal men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great moral war against masturbation, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that my idea might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will always note, and long remember what we say here, and it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task of eradicating masturbation that remains before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, a freedom from masturbation — and that government of the normals, by the normals, for the normals, shall not perish from the Earth.
