150 years ago: The birth of Magnus Hirschfeld

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Romans 1:24-32

Not only does this month (May 5, actually) mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx, but the 150th anniversary of the birth of another Prussian native whose contribution to humanity was overwhelmingly destructive. On May 14, 1868, German physician and sexologist Magnus Hirschfeld was born in Kolberg. Dr. Hirschfeld was a cross-dressing Jewish sodomite who promoted homosexuality as normal, and also supported women's suffrage and decriminalization of abortion. In 1897 he founded the Scientific-Humanitarian Committee, the first advocacy organization for perverts' rights.

In 1919, Dr. Hirschfeld founded the Institut für Sexualwissenschaft (Institute for Sexual Research), which contained a large archive and library, providing "educational services," and receiving famous visitors. The Institut was sacked by the Nazis shortly after their rise to power in 1933, with many of its books and archives burned. Dr. Hirschfeld, however, was abroad, having departed Germany in November 1930 to embark on a world tour to promote perversion and other causes that would now be regarded as politically correct. He went into permanent exile in France, and died of a heart attack on May 14, 1935, his 67th birthday. Good riddance. Dr. Hirschfeld, however, should be listed in the same category as Alfred Kinsey as a founder of the sexual revolution which has done so much harm, all in rebellion against God.
