In the past thirty or forty years the homosexual community has advanced it’s agenda in practically every area of society. They have accomplished this not because they have taken the moral high ground, but because they are well funded, have successfully positioned themselves politically and in the educational and business sectors of our society. Their greatest challenge comes from most every major faith, especially the Christian faith. In many Muslim countries Homosexuals and killed. They have cleverly reinterpreted those passages that speak to the homosexual lifestyle and they have been very successful in convincing many Christians that homosexuality is just another “normal” part of God’s creation.
It is true that God created us all and loves every one of us. It is also true that we should love one another, whatever one’s sexual “preference” may be. Yet, for many of us who embrace our Christian faith, we believe the Word of God teaches that He created us with Â physical equipment and emotional building blocks that find meaning in marriage with a member of the opposite sex, and so marriage is to be between a man and a woman, the very foundation for the family.
When a very verbal homosexual begins to rail against those “homophobic” radical right wing Christians and makes every attempt to shut off first amendment rights of everyone he disagrees with, then we need to stand for our rights which are not trumped by the homosexual agenda or pressure. It is difficult for many to speak their faith and convictions without homosexual groups seeking to silence them. Actor Kirk Cameron and Michele Backmann are only two of the most recent individuals who have received poison arrows from the homosexual community. See below!
Recently, actor and Christian Kirk Cameron appeared on
CNNâ€™s â€œPiers Morgan Tonightâ€ show to promote his new movie Monumental: In Search of Americaâ€™s National Treasure. The conversation turned to Cameronâ€™s opinions on some controversial social topics.
During the interview, Morgan asked about Kirk Cameronâ€™s beliefs on homosexuality. In response, Cameron stated his belief that homosexuality is “unnatural… detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.” Though he did not seem to agree with these comments, Morgan later told a news magazine show that he believed Cameron was â€œbrave to say what he did,â€ and that “he was honest to what he believed.”
A few days later, Piers Morgan interviewed Rep. Michele
Bachmann and pressed her for her response to Cameronâ€™s answers and her own views on homosexuality. After Morgan called her â€œone of the most judgmental people in America probably,â€ she stated, â€œI’m very adamant and very clear that I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, and I stand for that. I don’t think that’s bigoted.â€
Back in Cameronâ€™s court, attacks came quickly and fiercely against him from different liberal groups and celebrities. GLAAD (The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) labeled the actor an â€œextremistâ€ and started a petition to â€œTell Kirk Cameron It’s Time to Finally Grow Up,â€ while a couple of Cameronâ€™s former costars posted their responses: Alan Thicke tweeted, â€œI’m getting him some new books. The Old Testament simply can’t be expected to explain everything,â€ while Tracy Gold posted, â€œI am a strong supporter of the #LGBT Community, and I believe in equal rights for all. #NOH8 #LOVE”.
Later, Cameron defended his remarks and addressed some of the negative speech that was directed his way, saying:
â€œI spoke as honestly as I could, but some people believe my responses were not loving toward those in the gay community. That is not true. I can assuredly say that it’s my life’s mission to love all people. I should be able to express moral views on social issues, especially those that have been the underpinning of Western civilization for 2,000 years — without being slandered, accused of hate speech, and told from those who preach ‘tolerance’ that I need to either bend my beliefs to their moral standards or be silent when I’m in the public square.â€ (emphasis added)
We agree â€“ Cameron has a right to free speech and to answer questions honestly. Everyone has a right to their own opinions and beliefs, free from the fear of condemnation and pressure to concede to other points of view. At Advocates, it is our lifelong passion to defend these rights, and we will continue to do so, with Godâ€™s guidance and your encouragement!
One recent example of how powerful homosexuals have become against their “enemies,” is seen in the El Paso.Â The mayor is clearly a pawn of homosexuals who want him to implement benefits for same-sex partners. It makes no difference to Mayor Cook that voters had decided not to allow that. The issue is not to decide the merits of benefits for same-sex partners, that was decided in the referendum. The real issue should be focused on a Mayor who seeks to remove first amendment rights and then threatens to put those individuals in jail for exercising their rights in speaking out against the homosexual community who is seeking to reverse the will of the people.
In that city a prosecutor has decided to pursue and possibly charge members of El Paso area churches who promoted petitions opposing the city administration’s decision to implement benefit for same-sex partners even after voters decided not to allow that.
Attorneys representing the churches warn that hundreds of Christians and other El Paso citizens “are facing jail time for exercising their constitutionally protected right to speak out against the El Paso Mayor, John Cook and his policies.
