More on Proposition 8 Protestors

Posted by JasonS on November 15, 2008

Read it here.

Let’s see now, they say that they’re for freedom, but it’s only freedom for themselves.  You see, they don’t care whether the other fellow who needed to drive through the city was free to do so or not.  They simply blocked traffic without a care for anyone who was not free to travel to work, etc.  No, it’s not about freedom.

They speak of equality, but homosexuals are already equal.  They have equal rights and equal protections.  This is not about equality.  It is about what marriage is.  Marriage is always heterosexual in nature.  Thus, by definition, homosexuals cannot marry.  The state did not invent marriage, and the state cannot redefine marriage.  This is not about equality.  That already exists.  This is about re-writing the dictionary.

Oh, and what about equality for the Christians and others who supported Proposition 8?  Why are they lesser than homosexuals?  They must be considered so, because their voice is not seen as important.  The people have spoken, but their voice must be over ruled and silenced…after all, what do these ignorant, extremists know?  Is that not the opinion?  This is not about equality.  It is about silencing those who oppose “homosexual marriage.”

Neither is this about love.  If it were, they would show love to those who oppose them, too.

This is all about trying to silence those who oppose deviance.  It is about normalizing that which is unnatural.

How sad that we have come to this point.

God does not hate these folks.  God hates their lifestyle, however.  If they persist in this lifestyle and do not accept God’s heart-changing, life-changing love, He will turn against them in hatred and wrath.

Today is the day of grace.

Tomorrow may be the day of judgment.

Repent and believe the good news of Jesus Christ!

Keeping The Gospel In The Forefront

Posted by JasonS on May 2, 2008

Various controversies seem to arise in the blogosphere.

Because of virtual anonymity we can say practically anything. As a matter of fact, we feel much more free to do so than if we met our fellow man face-to-face in a disagreement.

In the end, let us all not forget to keep the Gospel in the forefront of our blogs. Sure, homosexuality and politics are hot-button issues. So is tithing. What is most important is the Gospel, because God is glorified therein.

1 John 2:12
I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.
KJV

Conservative Students Walk Out On GLBT Day Of Silence

Posted by JasonS on May 2, 2008

“Out of 1,410 students, nearly half (638) reportedly walked out of school on DOS with a unified voice saying, ‘No! We’re here to learn. We refuse to be subject to radical homosexual indoctrination at school or anywhere else!'”

Read it all here.

It is time that something be understood by the GLBT community: the fact that conservatives and Christians declare that their lifestyle is abominable is nowhere near as hateful as the name calling that is directed toward those Christians who oppose homosexuality. Why is it OK to call Christians bigots, hateful, homophobes, bullies, etc. for their beliefs when Christians are supposed to submit to this hate and say nothing about their own beliefs? That is neither equal or right. In fact, it is hateful, wrong, and an inaccurate assessment of true Christians. True Christians love homosexuals and do neither advocate nor encourage violence against them. They simply expect the right to express their beliefs as others.

Hmmmm…I wonder who is truly being hateful?

Update:  For those who question the validity of the above news article, the following links are given:

WorldNet Daily

Seattle Times

Americans For Truth

Interestingly enough, one commenter stated that some simply stayed home so as to not be involved in either side.  This says that many of the absences were planned as part of the protest.

In the end, there is some discrepancy in numbers.  There may be some spin on both sides of the issue.  Yet, I must say that CWFA gives a fairly accurate report simply because it was planned that many stay home from school in protest of the Day of Silence.

By the way, DOS was not too silent.

Wait!  Isn’t it somewhat HATEFUL to encourage people to throw rocks at someone.  Sure, the man needs a little moderation in his approach.  He is a little over the top with some of his comments, but is violence the answer?  Christians are called hateful and bigoted.  What do you call someone who holds a “throw rocks here” sign that is pointed toward one who opposes him?  Oh………maybe it’s because the guy with the sign is white and the preacher is black………….(all sarcasm intended to help the foolish GLBT community understand their double standard).

Update: The Senate is trying to sneak “hate crimes” legislation into a defense bill again. Now, that is very hateful. Instead of seeking the voice of the people, or listening to the voice of the people who have already defeated this foolishness multiple times by their popular outcry, they intend to continue on in their elitist mindset that declares that they know better than we what we need. They need to do their work in the sunshine. I am so sickened by the deceitfulness and backroom dealings of our government officials!

Tolerance Homosexual Style?

Posted by JasonS on March 20, 2008

Oklahoma House Representative Sally Kern is facing death threats due to the following statement:

“The very fact that I’m talking to you like this here today puts me in jeopardy,” she said in her speech. “So, so be it. I’m not anti, I’m not gay bashing, but according to God’s Word, that is not the right kind of lifestyle. It has deadly consequences for those people involved in it. They have more suicides … there’s more illness. Their life spans are shorter.”

“It’s not a lifestyle that is good for this nation. As a matter of fact, studies show that no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted more than, you know, a few decades. So it’s the death knell for this country. I honestly think it’s the biggest threat that our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam, which I think is a big threat,”

She has received 30,000 emails!  Thirty thousand!!!!!!!  Most of them were threatening…..many death threats.

So………this is what tolerance is all about?

I can tell that  Ms Kern is tolerant in the true sense of the word.

Read what she has to say:

“I’m not going to apologize for exercising my First Amendment right,” she told The Oklahoman.

She was equally supportive of the rights of homosexual activists to protest her remarks at the state capital.  “That’s great they came to the Capitol. This is a free country. They’re exercising their First Amendment right,” Kern told AP.

Where is the true tolerance?

P.C. Hits The Foster Care System in New Mexico

Posted by JasonS on March 1, 2008

In a story that appears in a UK paper (why don’t we see much of this in our own hometown papers?) we learn that a Christian foster care family has to resign because they refuse to sign on to the “gay” agenda.

This is a sad commentary on the state of the US.

See story here.
