Who is the protohomosexual?


He is the troubadour poet in twelfth-century France idealizing romance and sexual passion,
the knight of Arthurian legend pledging to serve his lady in trouthe and curtesie as if she were a goddess worthy of adoration. He believes erotic love is a high spiritual experience, the highest experience. Andreas Capellanus’ handbook advises that secrecy and suspense will fan the flame of passion; family obligations and children will stifle it. Lancelot and Guinevere betray King Arthur, Tristan and Iseult break the law, Romeo and Juliet go insane, and in the name of “love” every new fling causes undeserved pain for others. All of this is, of course, the raw material for blockbuster videos and bestselling novels in America today. - - Crisis Magazine

Your Say

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 ESV

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

Love can become an Icon. yes.

To Love the actual sexual act (self gratification), or another person (same-sex/Opposite-sex/etc...), or otherwise (Pornography, enabler in a Narcissist/Enabler pairing, Self Love of Narcissist, Cult-Follower of a Charismatic Leader, etc...) so greatly that it becomes unclean and breaks the 2nd Commandment (Idol worship):

An "Idyll" of the heart.

An Icon of Affection.

An "Idyll of the Heart" coming full circle:

The beginning is beautiful. But the conclusion, due to its own nature, is a tragedy.

An... Idyll.

By definition.

Poetics, without the Mechanics of day-to-day life, inevitably leads to Hell.
