The Ugly Truth
While they parade around in colorful garb, some beautiful, some strange, some downright distasteful, one gets the idea that the Homosexual Community is an eccentric, somewhat perverse segment of the American people who simply look for tolerance from those around them so that they can be themselves without fear of ridicule or discrimination.
The truth, however, can be an ugly thing. In truth, homosexuality is an ungodly perversion. Nothing more. Nothing less. Those who practice it are committing a sin, one of the few that God actually refers to as an abomination (LEV 18:22).
Ironically, those very same people who ask for Tolerance will be the first to attack me calling these words hate-speech. But these words are the simple truth based on Biblical teachings that have existed for thousands of years. This is not hateful any more than pointing out any other kind of truth is hateful. I am only articulating the facts as they have existed of millenia. This is not, in any way, hate, yet, in these darkening days, truth or not, if one’s words offend certain Special Interests they can be branded in many ways as can the writer.
Why then risk being branded hateful, or worse by pointing out the Sinful nature of this lifestyle? Love. The beautiful truth is that God loves all Sinners and wants to see them repent of their sin and receive the love and forgiveness He has for them through His son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Salvation awaits all sinners if they believe and repent. They simply have to deny their bodily lusts and turn to Christ in repentance and submission and ask for forgiveness. I pray that anyone who reads this, no matter their sins, will take these words to heart and embrace Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
1 Corinthians 15:1-4, "Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. 3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures."
Unlike The Lord, who is willing to forgive anyone, the Homosexual community has revealed that they are neither forgiving nor are they tolerant despite what they demand of others. Their recent legislative victories have acted as a release for the vitriol that has been seething just beneath the surface of their movement for social acceptance.
During a Fourth of July Gay Pride event in Washington State, several of the participants of the event assaulted and beat two Pastors who were peacefully holding signs pointing out the facts about sin and the availability of forgiveness in Jesus Christ. They were not being provocative or seeking to upset anyone. Despite the Pastor's peaceful demeanor, several participants pushed and shoved the men while others tried to destroy their signs. During the scuffle, two of the male participants assaulted the Pastors, beating one Pastor so badly he needed medical attention.
This is not the first act of violence against those who do not agree with promoting what is, in truth, a perverted lifestyle. In fact, emboldened by their recent victories, Sodomites have become more and more militant towards those who disagree with their deviant lifestyle. The same people who asked for tolerance are obviously doing so out of hypocrisy as they have zero tolerance for anyone opposed to their life choice or who disagree with their ideology. It seems that the First Amendment freedom of speech applies, in their minds, only to those who agree with them.
Washington State appears to be ground zero for much of this threatening behavior. A federal court in Tacoma, Wash. has been asked to order that the names of signatories of a state petition seeking to protect traditional marriage be redacted to protect them from death threats from homosexual activists. This is in the wake of a number of threats from the Sodomite community. Below are just a few of the documented threats courtesy of WND.com:
- “I will kill you and your family.”
- “Oh my God, This woman is so f—ing stupid. Someone please shoot her in the head, again and again. And again.”
- “I’m going to kill the pastor.”
- “If I had a gun I would have gunned you down along with each and every other supporter…”
- “We’re going to kill you.”
- “You’re dead. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon … you’re dead.”
- “I’m a gay guy who owns guns, and he’s my next target.”
- “I warn you, I know how to kill, I’m an ex-special forces person.”
- “Get ready for retribution all you bigots.”
- Burn their f—ing churches to the ground, and then tax the charred timbers.”
Tolerance. Not found here. Nor is this intolerance limited to Just Washington State. Indeed the trend is growing in every State of the Union, particularly those with large urban areas hosting substantial gay populations and in areas with strong resistance to the Sodomite movement. This once underground movement is becoming one of the most violent social "causes" in this country.
The movement's recent increase in militancy directly coincides with Obama and his famous support for Gay Marriage and now, with the defeat of DOMA, the Sodomites and those who sympathize with them, seemingly sensing that the tide is with them, have thrown off all restraint and intend to force the issue as far as they can no matter who they run over in the process! They appear to have no regard for the impact of these sudden radical changes on the country or the ramifications of the legislative Pandora’s Box they have opened.
Note: You might wonder at why I often use the term Sodomite. Unlike some of the Anti-Gay hate groups, I do so to remind readers that this is not just a social issue, but it is an issue offensive to God. While I do not claim to know the mind of God I think that the Bible is clear on the importance of the Holy Covenant of Marriage. Marriage is an institute as old as mankind. No one except God, is qualified to determine that Marriage is anything but what HE defined it as. He created the institution of Marriage.
Genesis 2:24, "For this cause a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and they shall become one flesh."
Heb 13:4 Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled, but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.
The fact that Marriage is a Christian "Religious" institution should clue you in as to why Sodomites might want to alter it. For instance, if all they wish is access to the manmade benefits of Marriage, then why not pursue civil union legislation? However, by attacking the sanctity of Marriage they attack what they hate. God and Christians! By participating in a "Marriage" Ceremony they mock the entire institution. It is no different than what they do during their parades and festivals, reveling in any outrage that they are able to elicit. It is sad, but it is my belief, that the only hate Sodomites have that is stronger than their hate for God and Christians is the hate that they reserve for themselves. This is evident in the suicide rates for homosexuals. According to numerous studies, homosexuals are at least three times more likely to commit suicide than heterosexuals - The highest of any demographic.
Tampering with God’s template for Man and Woman is Blasphemy and I do believe God will judge this country harshly for how we have embraced the Sodomite movement and corrupted the Holy institution of Marriage. Of all the traditional institutions which have been destroyed, distorted, twisted or just plain done away with over the past decade or so, the most important institutions such as the relationship between man and God and between Man, Woman and the Family are the ones which have come under the most intense assault. Look at our country. Look how divided we are. Look at how many single parent households there are and the resulting increase in illiteracy, unemployment and crime, not to mention drug and alcohol abuse. Do you really think the Progressives are taking this country in the right direction?
No, The Ugly Truth is that our country is falling apart all around us and it is no one’s fault but our own. We have become lazy, spoiled and apathetic. To avoid confrontation or appear tolerant and urbane, we embrace behaviors in our society which, instead, should be treated as the sins that they are. We elect representatives who take care of special interests at the expense of the entire country. We sell our freedoms for a little temporary safety. We have thrown away our honor, our dignity and our sense of national pride to pursue our own selfish interests with no thought for our community or our country. It is shameful. And the day is coming, very, very soon, when the piper must be paid.
There is more of course. Much more. But I have covered much of that already in previous articles and I will continue to do so until I can do so no longer, or the Lord calls me home.
