The homosexual lobby wants special rights, not equal rights, and the numbers seem to indicate they will receive “rites,” not rights, what with more than 60% of U.S. AIDS cases and over 50% of syphilis cases (and other STDs) in the homosexual crowd. Plus, statistically they live 24 years fewer than normal people because of some of the dumb, dangerous, and deadly things they do. But they clamor for same-sex “marriage” which is an oxymoron. Perversion is wrong, has always been wrong, and will always be wrong no matter what any court or authority might decide. However, that statement, although true, can cause trouble for its advocate.
George Orwell wrote, “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” That is where we are today. The efforts of the media, academia, Hollywood, and politicians have accomplished an amazing feat: they have changed the culture in a generation by being deceptive, disingenuous, and dishonest. Most people now believe right is now wrong and wrong is now right. Godly living is considered divisive, derisive, and deranged while perversion is no longer reprehensible, repugnant, and repulsive, but is thought (by non-thinkers) to be commendable, courageous, and even cultured!
We’ve come a long way, baby, in the last few years but we’ve gone in the wrong direction. A few of us are standing athwart the gasping, heaving body of American culture saying, “You are wrong. Perversion is an evil that will destroy those who practice it and it will destroy our nation.” Our lives are to be governed by God’s commandments, good judgment, and common sense.
Same-sex “marriage” fanatics tell us it is a matter of equality but it is a matter of right and wrong. They speak of “marriage” but two people of the same sex uniting is not marriage and saying so does not make it so. If every court in the U.S. and every official says so, it is still not so. A lie is still a lie if everyone affirms it and the truth is still the truth if no one affirms it!
Chief Justice Roberts’ cousin (a confessed lesbian) says that perversion should be legal because “society is becoming more accepting of the humanity of same-sex couples and the simple truth that we deserve to be treated with dignity, respect and equality under the law.” Senator Rob Portman said that he has taken sides with the same-sex crowd because his son is a homosexual. Do I need to lecture the Chief Justice and the Senator that right and wrong are not decided by society’s ever-changing standards? After all, some civilizations butchered children while others ate their foes. In other defunct civilizations children were sacrificed to pagan gods. And I am purposely making the comparison. Homosexuality has always been called, “The unspeakable crime against nature.” Also against a holy God!
It is incredible that homosexuals, with a straight face, can demand respect and recognition of their dignity! May I point out that those people do incredibly dangerous, disgusting, and deadly things? And they expect respect! What chutzpah! Or as the English would say, “What cheek.” Or as an American would say, “What stupidity!”
In the late 1950s I introduced a bill in the Indiana House of Representatives to reinstate sodomy as a crime as it had been since Indiana was a state. The homosexuals came out of the universities, the Art Institute, and of course, the closets to protest my bill. One Indiana University professor foolishly characterized David and Jonathan as lovers and declared that homosexuals only wanted to be left alone. He opined that my bill would be repressive. What it would have done is restrict homosexuals from cruising in the parks and having abnormal sex with strangers in public bathrooms, among other things. It would also have made some university professors uncomfortable, unlawful, and unemployed.
I told him and my fellow committee members that homosexuals did just want to be left alone but they wanted the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval on their evil activities. I said, “They want formal acceptability and respectability but will not get it as long as dedicated, sincere, informed Christians are still alive.” We see this today when they demand that they not only want to be treated like normal people but that we accept, applaud, and advocate their lifestyle. I don’t approve of the tsunami of fornication that has deluged America but at least that is not abnormal and aberrant. Homosexual activists have changed our culture! I was wrong in my prediction. Christian leaders are caving under the cover of “love.” It’s really cowardice.
Many Evangelicals have gone AWOL in this battle. In fact, rather than stand on biblical truth, they use reason to commit treason against Christ. I am ashamed of the compromisers, cowards, cheats, and charlatans who speak of “love” while they strangle unpleasant truth. And even if we in opposition were to be filled with hate, I would rather have truth in hate than error in love.
Besides, unpleasant truth is not always hate speech.
