Rabid anti-choice activist Clenard Childress, who believes that gay rights are a sign of the End Times, is now comparing advocates of LGBT equality to the people in the Bible that called for Jesus’ death. Wrongly suggesting that the American Psychological Association believes that homosexuality is a choice (the group says the opposite), Childress also claims that gays and lesbians can’t claim to have civil rights “because your sexual orientation could be flawed.” Childress writes:
The Roman Empire had been occupying and subjugating Israel for multiple years along with the religious elite. They were enslaved to man outwardly and sin inwardly and blind to both. Certainly at that point, Jesus saw the futility of trying to reach that audience with truth, yet out of compassion he persisted. The elites were determined to twist and malign the facts to accommodate their lifestyle, though in error. They lived in a vacuum of denial refusing to see the obvious. When truth is ignored, or denied, the course often taken by those in denial is to first obfuscate, then defame, diminish, and finally denounce the messenger. This crowd resorted to using the “N-word” of that day: “Samaritan,” and even went so far as declaring that Jesus was the devil. Sound familiar?
It is similar today, for instead of examining the data, this generation’s elites combat truth with ideology, character assassination, deception, and of course, denial. The two defining issues of the day which will determine the course of our culture, and the destiny of our nation, are abortion and homosexuality… Pro-choice, and homosexual and lesbian activists, all claim their cause is a Civil Rights issue. Yet the “Civil Rights” of the unborn children are being denied, and it is intellectually dishonest to claim a “right” for yourself, and by so doing, deny the rights of someone else, especially when that someone is an unborn infant. These individuals are completely wrong because you do not give Civil Rights to sexual orientation because your sexual orientation could be flawed. “Civil Rights” are based on “Birth Rights,” and according to the APA, homosexuality and lesbianism is an acquired behavior, not something like the color of your skin — something you’re born with. You were not born homosexual, so sexual preference is not a Civil Right — it’s a preference.
