Bill Johnson of the anti-gay American Decency Association is angry that Magic Johnson has shown his openly gay son love and support rather than condemnation.
“Would you be proud to hear that your loved one had chosen a life that God calls an abomination?,” Johnson writes, “Maybe if you yourself had lived a life of reprobation – and yourself had lost the ability to think and act morally any longer.”
Johnson goes on to say that gay rights will lead to the acceptance of “pedophilia” and “beastiality [sic]” and called homosexuality a “sin which degrades, addicts, destroys.”
Would you be proud to hear that your loved one had chosen a life that God calls an abomination? Maybe if you yourself had lived a life of reprobation – and yourself had lost the ability to think and act morally any longer.
If Magic Johnson says he’s proud of his son for being a homosexual does his statement make it right in your heart and mind?
For those who say there is no God, it’s fine to screw around, play around, commit adultery, engage in homosexuality. There is no right or wrong so do what’s right in your own eyes; do what comes “naturally.” And if what you want to do isn’t considered politically correct today, just wait awhile then it will be okay in the near future. Polygamy? Pedophilia? Same-sex marriage? Beastiality [sic]?
For those who say there is a God, they believe there is a God in Heaven who created man and woman and who created all things. They also believe there is TRUTH – that there is such a thing as right and wrong; that life is precious; that the chief end of man is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.
Therefore, God’s warnings in His word are reasonable and wise. God made us and He knows what’s best. He gives strong warnings regarding illicit sex: pre-marital sex, promiscuity, adultery, homosexuality, polygamy.
Why? Because He loves His people and doesn’t want His people to be damaged and to damage other people through that sin which degrades, addicts, destroys.
And the sin of homosexuality DOES damage! You could provide your accounts as well – multiple , multiple accounts but somehow we seldom to never hear these accounts. Do you? We just see Magic Johnson types with their “warm smiles” saying all is well and I’m proud. GAY PRIDE.
Other societies have turned their backs upon God. That’s what America is doing – substituting the truth for a lie.
In closing, I live in the real world. I have had loved ones break my heart. I have deeply disappointed my own parents – nearly broken their hearts.
I have been loved, even when I have done wrong. I have and I will do the same. But I will never say that I am proud of an act or a behavior that dishonors God and degrades His people.
