Have Nothing To Do With Them….
Galatians 5:20 Idolatry, sexually perverted, double-minded, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies…
There are false prophets ( Homosexuals ) also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers (LGBTQ+P among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
Fifty years ago, Blue Laws in most states banned not only homosexual relations but all forms of oral sex. These same laws very often banned adultery and extramarital sex. Prosecutors never enforced these laws, and when they were either stricken down by state courts or abolished in periodic re-codification of state criminal codes, no one ever cared.
Social conservatives assumed that by allowing individuals to engage in behavior they considered immoral, provided that the behavior was consensual, social conservatives would retain as a complementary right the ability to limit consensual relations when those relationships violated their consciences.
This was a logical expansion of freedom of religion. The American Christian majority had no right to force a Kosher deli to stay open on the Jewish Sabbath if it granted the right of a Christian bakery to close on Sunday. Beyond respecting the Sabbath, Jewish dietary laws, which most Orthodox Jewish delis follow, prohibit the food from being prepared by a Gentile and ban non-Jewish wine, cheese, and bread.
What would we call political activists who tried to force Orthodox Jewish delis to stay open on Shabbat or compelled a family-operated Jewish deli to hire Gentiles to prepare food on the grounds of “discrimination”? We ought to call these creeps bigots, just as we ought to call political activists who try to compel Christians or Jews or Muslims to violate their religious beliefs also creepy bigots.
Markets also allow people to be faithful to sincerely held religious beliefs without risk of oppression of others. Chick-fil-A closes on Sundays – even when its competitors stay open – because its management is Christian. It loses potential customers and profit and does not care.
Likewise, a Jewish deli that closes on Shabbat or hires only Jews to prepare food or buys products only from businesses certified as Kosher loses potential customers – not only that of Gentiles but also that of many Jews who would not be particularly picky about where they get a bagel or chicken soup.
This is the difference between “discrimination,” which is morally neutral if based upon sincere belief, and “bigotry,” which is hateful in its very purpose. Businesses grounded in bigotry do not last long. Political activists, on the other hand, often thrive with bigotry. In the South fifty years ago, it was not business that wanted Jim Crow laws. Rosa Parks had a quiet ally in the bus companies, who wanted as many paying customers as possible. Parks and the bus companies had a common enemy in government trying to impose moral values on others.
What about “discrimination”? Do any of us have the right to judge the morality of other people making free choices? Well, are these “other people” allowed to judge the morality of us? Every single act in the marketplace involves discrimination, and that discrimination not only does but ought to involve our personal values. Moreover, businesses constantly cater to our values at least as much as our perceived “good bargain,” and we buy goods and services because we like or support those values.
The buyer-seller relationship requires mutual consent, or it is not consent at all, but coercion. When the right to discriminate is taken away, and the common liberty the market provides is throttled, then the ugly face of government, the true enforcer of bigotry, with its ugly process of politics, will become the only battleground for values – and all of us will lose.Source
The examples are too numerous to list in one post, but if you want to take a trip down Gay Fascism Lane (which is an actual street in San Francisco, according to the brochure), start by investigating these examples:
-The t-shirt company charged with human rights violations for the crime of not printing gay pride shirts.
And, though not instances of governmental intrusions, gay fascists have, in their single-minded pursuit of ideological conformity, also set their sights on Catholic priests who follow Church law; fast food restaurants whose owners haven’t pledged allegiance to their cause; Christian TV hosts on the Home and Garden Network who talk about the Bible sometimes; football commentators who don’t properly worship at the altar of a gay defensive end from Missouri; reality stars who talk about the Bible sometimes; tech CEOs who donated to legislation protecting traditional marriage, and many, many others.
In all of these cases, offenders have been threatened, blackmailed, bullied, boycotted, fired, or legally punished for, in the minds of the gay mob, “discriminating.”
Also, in all of these cases, not a single gay person was singled out, victimized, persecuted, or otherwise preyed upon for being gay. The bakers and bridal shop owners and florists and t-shirt companies and photographers never once “refused service to gay people.” They refused to participate in activities involving gay people, but they never said, “you are gay so you may not purchase a cupcake in my establishment.” Why would they do that anyway? The act of serving a delicious pastry to a homosexual is not, by any Christian teaching I’ve ever heard, intrinsically immoral. Nobody is refusing service to gays just because they’re gay. That’s not the point. That’s not what’s happening.
We are only talking about people who opted not to play an active role in a gay wedding ceremony or gay pride festival. And, on the other side of that coin, we’re talking about homosexuals who wish to force private individuals to play that role, whether they like it or not.
So, when it comes to following God’s commands, what does the Bible say about those who continue to lead sinful lives? Paul addressed this issue with the Christians in Corinth, stating, “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality…will inherit the Kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10, emphasis added).
Was this just Paul’s personal opinion? Of course not. He told the Corinthians in the same letter that he was “called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 1:1) and stated that he was appealing to them “by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (verse 10). So he spoke with Christ’s authority.
Paul also refers to homosexuality in the same way in 1 Timothy 1:9-10 and Romans 1:24-27 (including female homosexuality, verse 26). These New Testament prohibitions are firmly based on similar statements found in Old Testament law (Acts 24:14; 17:11; Leviticus 18:22; 20:13). Homosexuality and other forms of sexual immorality, such as adultery and premarital sex, are indeed sins.
Now let’s revisit my roommate’s finishing remark, “But we are all sinners.” Again, while this is clearly true, how can we reconcile this with Paul’s instruction?
The answer is simple. It comes down to one word: lifestyle. What is the overall objective of one’s lifestyle? Can a professional hit man be a Christian? Can a priest in a temple of Zeus be a Christian? Can a strip club owner be a Christian?
These issues have easy answers. If one repents of his or her sin and no longer lives or promotes that sinful lifestyle, the answer is yes, one can be a Christian. If one doesn’t repent and change his or her disobedient lifestyle, absolutely not! So, should continuing to embrace and practice homosexuality, a lifestyle that is in clear violation of God’s commands (just as murder, idol worship, and fornication are), be treated differently? No, because all “sin is lawlessness” (1 John 3:4).
While Christians will at times succumb to temptation and sin, they ask God for forgiveness when they do and then strive to forgo their sinful behavior (1 John 1:8;2:1). Put another way, we can’t deliberately continue unrepentant in a lifestyle of sin and be Christians at the same time. Instead, Christians lead a life of repenting of their sins and striving, with God’s help, to change their ways. Some sinful habits may take time to completely eradicate, but the heart and intent of Christians is that they continually strive to be like Jesus Christ.
