While looking back on a year that saw the official end of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and the arrival of marriage equality in New York, Americans For Truth About Homosexuality’s Peter LaBarbera didn’t have much reason to celebrate. LaBarbera in his end of the year message condemned the triumph of “organized evil” and “homosexuality-embracing conservatives” in particular, who he claims are helping gays and lesbians drag “America into a cultural pit” and who are even more harmful “to the cause of Truth than a thousand burly men in high heels strutting down Main Street.” He went on to lash out against President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for advocating for equal rights for LGBT people abroad, saying they are “spitting in God’s eye,” and mourned that the “‘gay’ marketing campaign to redefine sexual perversion as a civil right is in one of the most spectacularly successful anti-God movements in human history.”
As whacked and dysfunctional as Gay Pride Parades are, high-profile “conservatives” and Christians who help mainstream homosexuality (read: “gay/lesbian/trans” identities) do more damage to the cause of Truth than a thousand burly men in high heels strutting down Main Street. These “conservatives” need to get back to the Real Jesus and to critiquing the Kinsey-ite Sexual Revolution that is dragging America into the cultural pit.
But if homosexuality-embracing conservatives operating in the mostly secular world of politics and media do so much damage, how much more so Christian leaders who manage to convince people that the same Jesus (God) who calls sex between men “detestable” would be standing right beside the LGBT lobby crusading for homosexual “marriage”? Shame.
Get thee behind Me, Satan!
In a free society, Christians should resist wicked homosexual militants and groups, and organized evil in general. That means standing up in whatever way you can to the well-funded and powerful homosexualist movement that pursues, with cult-like devotion, its goal of rationalizing same-sex identities and behavior. We must admonish impressionable youth — and the wider culture – that it is a false and unbiblical to cast homosexuality as “who you are,” as opposed to a behavioral sin that people can fall into.
The “gay” marketing campaign to redefine sexual perversion as a civil right is in one of the most spectacularly successful anti-God movements in human history. But it is still wrong. As a faithful Christian, you must be willing to stand with God and against sinful men, even if that means you will be called a name or suffer for righteousness’ sake.
Sadly, America is a nation and civilization in steep decline. And, as historians like the late Will Durant asserted, societal acceptance of homosexuality and sexual immorality are a sign of that decline. We have forsaken our nation’s biblical birthright. Now our President, Barack Obama and his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton – both professing Christians — are spitting in God’s eye by pledging to promote homosexuality abroad as a “human right” – just as the Left previously fought to use American money and influence to promote abortion in foreign countries.
