Homosexual "Marriage" Not Acceptable to God

During a wonderful walk on a beautiful day at the beach yesterday, my good friend and I got in a discussion about "gay" marriage, civil unions, and traditional one man and one woman marriage.  We both shared the fact that we know Christians - some who even appear to be very devout - who have fallen for the lie that homosexual marriage is acceptable.  Apparently, they choose to no longer acknowledge that homosexual marriage (and behavior) is unacceptable to God and goes against His laws.  God created marriage.  The definition has always been the union of one man and one woman.  Period! 

In fact, the reprobate idea of homosexual "marriage" is not new.  It is ancient!  Recall that Solomon tells us, "there is nothing new under the sun."

When Jesus was asked what the signs would be of his return, he stated:

Mat 24:37 “But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

Luk 17:26 “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:

Luk 17:28 “Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built;
Luk 17:29 “but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.

Luk 17:30 “Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

What did "the Days of Noah" and "the Days of Lot" have in common?  Besides unbelief, moral depravity, murder, evil, and general sinful behavior, they both had the sin of homosexuality in common.

My friend had not heard of the ancient Jewish writings that shared the fact that contracts of  "men marrying men" and "women marrying women" happened back before Noah and the flood.  It was one big reason why the flood occurred.  Therefore, I sent her an email with links to blog posts that shared this information.

 I wrote:

As always, I enjoyed our walk, talk and lunch together today!

I told you about the evidence given by Jewish Rabbis in the Babylonian Talmud, but there were also other writings that shared information about "men marrying men," and "women marrying women" in Noah's time.

The following  is a link to one of  the best Talk Wisdom blog posts about this topic  that I wrote back in 2011.  It includes additional information from The Midrash Rabbah Genesis - which  is a specific form of rabbinic literature of
ancient Judaism commentaries of the Hebrew Scriptures.

The following is a "search" at my blog with several posts about this topic all in a row:

There are many additional links within the posts from other writers who have done extensive research on this topic.  Just thought I would share this with you since we were talking about it today!

In addition to this, I revisited a post over at GCMWatch (Gay Christian Movement Watch) that displays the utter depravity of some gay behavior affirming churches.

GCMWatch: MCC Clerics Demonize Jesus

Note - There is a warning regarding the content included at the links within the post:

WARNING: Read this post only if you want irrefutable proof of the depth of depravity currently saturating the gay christian movement.

I have often mentioned that the term "gay" always precedes the term "Christian" in the movement as a whole;  as well as when it is written in the description of the churches and even the individuals who self-identify as such.  Why is that?

Jesus told us that "no one can serve two masters."

Mat 6:24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.

Luk 16:13 “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”

The second sentence in these verses directly discusses the inability of servants of Christ serving both God and mammon (money).  However, it is not only money that people can choose to serve ahead of Christ - it can be ANY master.  And in the "gay Christian movement," the behavior of the individuals trumps Christ, God's Holy Word, God's Laws, and Christ's admonition to "leave your life of sin" (which he said to the woman caught in adultery).

Jhn 8:11 She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and[fn] sin no more.”
NU-Text and M-Text add from now on.

Notice that Christ did not condemn her (because those who were about to stone her had to drop their stones when Christ said, "if any of you are without sin, cast the first stone.")

Now, I have been accused at this blog of figuratively "throwing stones" at people who self-identify as gay.  Nothing could be further from the truth!  God wants ALL to come to salvation through Jesus Christ's sacrificial death at the cross for the forgiveness and remission of sins.  However, those who celebrate a sinful lifestyle right along with people who haven't repented of such sin, are allowing them to miss being reconciled back unto God.  Which is more egregious?

Let's take a physical example.  What if you knew of someone who was about to jump off the top of a tall building because someone convinced them "you will surely not die?"  What if your excuse was that you didn't want to offend their sensibilities on the subject?  Therefore,  you supported their decision to go ahead with the act.  Who in their right mind would call such a warning offensive?  It's the same when it comes to spiritual matters. 

The book of Jude tells us how difficult it can be to help pull someone "out of the fire" of sinful behavior, but it is the most compassionate thing to do despite the fact that many will curse you for attempting to do so!  Being uncomfortable in this world is the life of a true Christian.  Jesus told us, "in this life you [we] will have trouble.  But take heart!  For I [He] has overcome the world!"  He also told us that "He is not of this world."  So therefore, because we have made the commitment to belong to Him, we are not of this world either!  He told us that the unsaved will hate us, because they hated Him first!

All that we can do is share the TRUTH with the unsaved.  The Holy Spirit of God (through each human act of confession and repentance of sin and the request of each individual for forgiveness through Christ's sacrificial act of saving grace at the cross) will indwell the heart of a new believer and lead him/her to a new life in Christ!  The old sin-filled self gradually goes away (called sanctification) and the new life within the believer WANTS to sin no more and please God!

Well, once again I have said my peace on this issue.  There will inevitably be people who will vehemently disagree and call me a bigot, hateful, name it...because they do not know the Living Word of God - Jesus Christ, or the written Word of God - the Bible.  Plus, it is likely that they have not accepted God's gift of salvation so that they can spend eternity with God in heaven.

One more link to share.  It was a post I did as a reaction to GCMWatch: MCC Clerics Demonize Jesus.

Talk Wisdom: The Spiritual Oblivion of the Reprobate Mind.


The term "oblivion" is certainly a fascinating word. At the end of this post, I have included several of's definitions of the word.

It is interesting to note the following fact, which is mentioned in the third source below:

It [the term, oblivion] has lost its original sense of "no longer aware or mindful," however, and now means simply "unaware" (1862). Properly should be used with to, not of.
Online Etymology Dictionary, © 2001 Douglas Harper

Sin and reprobation of the mind can lead to a state of spiritual oblivion that knows no bounds. This was my thought after reading about the absolute depravity of a person named Robert Goss who masquerades as a reverend. The idolatry, brokenness and demonic strongholds in this man's life are most evident in Pastor DL Foster's post called,
MCC Clerics Demonize Jesus.

Look at the NLT version of verse Jeremiah 25:7

"But you would not listen to me," says the Lord. "You made me furious by worshiping your idols, bringing on yourselves all the disasters you now suffer.

We know what this man's idol is. This man's thought life is so far from God it's astounding.

The Proverb verses tell us how important it is to keep God's commandments. The two brilliant statements from our Lord (in bold and italics here) can be attributed towards identifying Mr. Goss as a false convert. At the same time, the words absolutely destroy his reprobate-thinking theology:

Pro 3:1 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:

Pro 4:4 He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.

Pro 7:2 Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.

Jhn 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

Jhn 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.

What does God's Word tell us about our thought life?

Phl 4:4   Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!

Phl 4:5   Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.

Phl 4:6   Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;

Phl 4:7   and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Phl 4:8   Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy--meditate on these things.

Philippians 4:4-8 NKJV

In conclusion, this illustrates just one reason why Jesus told us that he did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it. If Jesus came to abolish the law, then we could live in any morally relativistic (or morally reprehensible way as the corruption of Mr. Goss shows us) way we so choose.

But we steadfastly know that Jesus came to fulfill the law, not abolish it. Therefore, His statement, "If you love me, keep my commandments" flies in the face of the gay Christian reprobate theologians who choose to be "no longer aware or mindful" of what God's Word teaches. Scripture will always condemn and expose false prophets, teachers, and theologians like Mr. Goss. And the depravity of their minds will continue to expose the spiritual oblivion that they choose to reside in.

Understanding the Viciousness of the Homosexual Left.

The IRS targeting (and profiling) of conservative groups, including possible felonious violation of fellow citizens' civil rights, has prompted a writer over at American Thinker to explain how to Understand the Viciousness of the Gay Left.  In the past, I have often labeled such a description of "the viciousness of the homosexual left" as "the radical homosexual agenda."

I agree with one commentator (at the link above) who states that we should not call the movement "gay," which had it's original meaning of "happy, cheerful, glad, joyous, joyful  etc." stolen from the vernacular.  We should use the term "homosexual" or "sodomite."  Thus, I have tweaked the title of my post to reflect that.

The entire article is quite enlightening.  However, I will include just a few segments that involve the targeting by the IRS through a homosexual organization called "The Human Rights Campaign;" which is actually a front for destroying anyone or anything that disagrees with their totalitarian homosexual indoctrination beliefs and tactics.

When you read the article, you will be blessed.  It will show conservative Christian readers here who believe in God, The Bible, and Jesus Christ and His Gospel that we are NOT the intolerant ones.  THEY ARE!!!  It also demonstrates that such activists are NOT the same as all homosexual individuals.  It is kind of like the Muslims vs. Muslim terrorists.  I would go so far as to describe this particular mean-spirited group as sodomite terrorists!


During hearings on Capitol Hill, Chapman University professor John Eastman of the National Organization for Marriage unveiled new evidence that the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest gay advocacy organization, may have feloniously obtained confidential tax documents from the IRS and then published them with the intent of humiliating political opponents.

This accusation, as has been noted by several commentators including Dennis Prager and Ann Coulter, brings the current IRS scandals to a whole new level. Below is the exchange that took place between Rep. Paul Ryan and Prof. Eastman:

RYAN: So your donors are confidential, that's protected by law. You have proof that the IRS leaked your confidential donor information to a group that opposes your point of view. And your donors were harassed as a result of that. Is that correct?

As Dennis Prager pointed out in his show, this is the most serious chapter of the IRS scandal. A brief transcript:

PRAGER: People will more openly talk about marital problems, and certainly child problems, than they will disclose their financial data [...] And so to publish people's tax returns is to in some ways strip them naked in public [...]

EASTMAN: [...] what was leaked to the Human Rights Campaign was Schedule B of our tax returns, which is our list of major donors and their addresses. And that is as private of a tax return as your own individual 1040 tax returns. And it's a felony for anybody to disclose that information without your permission. The Human Rights Campaign posted this on their website and we immediately called for them to take it down [...]and this is a felony. It is a felony punishable by up to five years in prison, to disclose somebody's tax returns without authorization [...]The Human Rights Campaign had been trying for a long time to get our donor list so that they could do just that to our donors [harass and intimidate them]. The president of the Human Rights Campaign, Joe Salmonese, had just recently become a national co-chair for the Obama re-election campaign.

While bad enough, this is only the tip of the iceberg -- the gay lobby is also gleefully co-opting military and police forces to hound its enemies too.

What is sadly (and terribly!!) ironic, is that since the military allowed openly homosexuals to serve and be "out" in the military,  the sexual assault rate rises by 35% (mostly homosexual rapes).

The following points within the article should be welcomed by those of us who agree with the stance that marriage is the union of one man and one woman and that homosexual behavior is sin, an abomination in the face of God, undesirable, unhealthy, disease-filled, and as the Bible tells us something to be avoided.  Those who engage in it should do as any other sinner - confess and repent before Holy God, ask for forgiveness, turn away from such aberrant behavior, and ask Jesus Christ to indwell their hearts in order to help them live according to God's laws and His better plan for their lives.


The deflection of blame onto imaginary enemies required tremendous mental work, and this work became the overarching labor of the Human Rights Campaign and its many sister organizations. Gay activists retreated from physical reality and rejected the notion of truth, since both reality and truth had betrayed them. They took comfort in the notion that if others saw them as good and normal, their problems would be solved. And so hiding problems -- which sometimes bordered on lying -- took precedence over self-improvement.

Whenever caught in a misrepresentation -- as they already have been regarding suicide and sexual assault in the military, and as they will soon be regarding same-sex parenting -- they have learned to become aggressive.

Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, [fn] for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.

Rom 1:17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "The just shall live by faith." [fn]

Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

Rom 1:19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown [it] to them.

Rom 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible [attributes] are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,

Rom 1:21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify [Him] as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

Rom 1:22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,

Rom 1:23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man--and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

Rom 1:24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,

Rom 1:25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

Rom 1:26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.

Rom 1:27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;

Rom 1:29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, [fn] wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; [they are] whisperers,

Rom 1:30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

Rom 1:31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, [fn] unmerciful;

Rom 1:32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

"Gay" Marriage is a Lie: Destruction of Marriage is the goal

Heard about this on Glenn Beck's radio program yesterday.  The Blaze has an article up about it.

For years conservative Christians have been warning that the gay agenda (especially the unrelentless push for "gay" marriage) has been more about the purposed destruction of the traditional family rather than about the so-called "right" for a man to marry a man or a woman to marry a woman.

The Lesbian Activist’s Surprisingly Candid Speech: Gay Marriage Fight Is a ‘Lie’ to Destroy Marriage

Copy of post:

A 2012 speech by Masha Gessen, an author and outspoken activist for the LGBT community, is just now going viral and it includes a theory that many supporters of traditional marriage have speculated about for years: The push for gay marriage has less to do with the right to marry – it is about diminishing and eventually destroying the institution of marriage and redefining the “traditional family.”

The subject of gay marriage stirs powerful reactions on both sides of the argument. There are those who argue that legalizing it would diminish traditional marriage. And those advocating for gay marriage have long stated that the issue will not harm traditional marriage. Ms. Gessen’s comments on the subject seem to contradict the pro-gay-marriage party lines.
Gessen shared her views on the subject and very specifically stated;
  • “Gay marriage is a lie.”
  • “Fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we’re going to do with marriage when we get there.”
  • “It’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist.” (This statement is met with very loud applause.)
As mentioned above, Gessen also talked about redefining the traditional family. This may have something to do with the fact that she has “three children with five parents”:
“I don’t see why they (her children) shouldn’t have five parents legally. I don’t see why we should choose two of those parents and make them a sanctioned couple.”
The entire presentation is here, but the most curious portion starts about six minutes into the audio:

Commentator "Leopold" sheds more light upon the evil of the gay agenda:
Leopold Posted on April 29, 2013 at 1:02pm

I am coming to realize this is not about equality or marriage.

Next they go after the church in a big campaign. God is all about love, and who are you to deny us his blessing. blah blah blah.

After that they will go after the Bible, because of “hate speech”.

But what they really WANT is to destroy the innocence of children.

Remember, the homosexual community is only a tool.

If I mention the name of who yields this tool my comment might be censored.

God's Plan For The Gay Agenda

This morning, I turned on Fox News and heard Peter Johnson Jr. discussing that Washington state (which recently approved homosexual "marriage") has taken further steps to stomp on traditional marriage by changing all marriage certificates from listing the married couple as "bride and groom" to "spouse A and B."

This is another example of the rabid and reprobate continuation of unrepentant man towards the destruction of God's idea for true, traditional marriage; which is reserved for heterosexual couples. 

We have already seen the attempts to erase the terms "mother and father."  Why?  Because lesbians want Mother's Day cards to say, "my two moms?"  Sometimes the idiocy is so ridiculous we can only shake our heads in disbelief!

Our culture today is rapidly reaching the point where "gay" agenda approval has expanded to the point where it is just commonly accepted - even by some who would call themselves Christian.

We would expect this of non-religious individuals, but Christians?  In their attempt to appear "non-judgmental," and avoid the labels of being "bigoted," "hateful," or worse, Christians just shrug their shoulders and say, "let it be."  Well, that is an attitude straight from hell!

I recently received an email from someone who objects to the new California law that rejects change therapy for men and women who have undesired same-sex attractions.  Here is what was written about it:

Under this outrageous new law, a young boy sexually molested by the likes of a Jerry Sandusky who develops an identity crisis, suffers emotional distress, and begins to experience unwanted same-sex attractions, will be further hurt by a law that deprives him and his family of sound counsel.

What is wrong with this picture, people?  If every sexual desire is OK in the scheme of things on this earth, and former heterosexuals are "celebrated" when they come out "gay," then why can't someone who once had same-sex attraction THAT IS UNWANTED be celebrated when they get counseled and born-again of Jesus Christ to get out of such attraction and become heterosexually attracted to the opposite sex?  See the glaring hypocrisy?

The reason is this:  the homosexual agenda is a one-way street and all of the LBGTQ (Lesbian, Bi-sexual, Gay, Transgender, Questioning) groups rabidly oppose such a "change" that would bring someone back to what God intended for their lives.  After all, He "made them male and female."

This fierce opposition has moral evil behind it.  Plain, simple and unquestionable!

In previous posts, I have gone into detail regarding how Scripture reveals the sin of homosexual behavior, and how the rise of its acceptance points to the end times.

Please see:

Talk Wisdom: The Days of Noah Are Here

As In The Days of Noah Revisited

The Homosexual Agenda Is A Spiritual Problem

John MacArthur has written an essay that explains even further why God opposes such behavior and what God's Plan For the Gay Agenda:

Articles By Grace to YouJohn MacArthur photo
God's Plan for the Gay Agenda
John MacArthur
If you've been watching the headlines over the last couple years, you may have noticed the incredible surge of interest in affirming homosexuality. Whether it's at the heart of a religious scandal, political corruption, radical legislation, or the redefinition of marriage, homosexual interests have come to characterize America. That's an indication of the success of the gay agenda. And some Christians, including some national church leaders, have wavered on the issue even recently. But sadly, when people refuse to acknowledge the sinfulness of homosexuality — calling evil good and good evil (Isaiah 5:20) — they do so at the expense of many souls.

How should you respond to the success of the gay agenda? Should you accept the recent trend toward tolerance? Or should you side with those who exclude homosexuals with hostility and disdain?
In reality, the Bible calls for a balance between what some people think are two opposing reactions — condemnation and compassion. Really, the two together are essential elements of biblical love, and that's something the homosexual sinner desperately needs.

Homosexual advocates have been remarkably effective in selling their warped interpretations of passages in Scripture that address homosexuality. When you ask a homosexual what the Bible says about homosexuality — and many of them know — they have digested an interpretation that is not only warped, but also completely irrational. Pro-homosexual arguments from the Bible are nothing but smokescreens — as you come close, you see right through them.

God's condemnation of homosexuality is abundantly clear
He opposes it in every age.
- In the patriarchs (Genesis 19:1-28)
- In the Law of Moses (Leviticus 18:22; 20:13)
- In the Prophets (Ezekiel 16:46-50)
- In the New Testament (Romans 1:18-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Jude 7-8)
Why does God condemn homosexuality? Because it overturns God's fundamental design for human relationships — a design that pictures the complementary relationship between a man and a woman (Genesis 2:18-25; Matthew 19:4-6; Ephesians 5:22-33).

Why, then, have homosexual interpretations of Scripture been so successful at persuading so many? Simple: people want to be convinced. Since the Bible is so clear about the issue, sinners have had to defy reason and embrace error to quiet their accusing consciences (Romans 2:14-16). As Jesus said, "Men loved the darkness rather than the Light, [because] their deeds were evil" (John 3:19-20).

As a Christian, you must not compromise what the Bible says about homosexuality — ever. No matter how much you desire to be compassionate to the homosexual, your first sympathies belong to the Lord and to the exaltation of His righteousness. Homosexuals stand in defiant rebellion against the will of their Creator who from the beginning "made them male and female" (Matthew 19:4).
Don't allow yourself to be intimidated by homosexual advocates and their futile reasoning — their arguments are without substance. Homosexuals, and those who advocate that sin, are fundamentally committed to overturning the lordship of Christ in this world. But their rebellion is useless, for the Holy Spirit says, "Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God" (1 Corinthians 6:9-10; cf. Galatians 5:19-21).

So, what is God's response to the homosexual agenda?

Certain and final judgment. To claim anything else is to compromise the truth of God and deceive those who are perishing.

As you interact with homosexuals and their sympathizers, you must affirm the Bible's condemnation. You are not trying to bring damnation on the head of homosexuals, you are trying to bring conviction so that they can turn from that sin and embrace the only hope of salvation for all of us sinners — and that's through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Homosexuals need salvation. They don't need healing — homosexuality is not a disease. They don't need therapy — homosexuality is not a psychological condition. Homosexuals need forgiveness, because homosexuality is a sin.

I don't know how it happened, but a few decades ago someone branded homosexuals with the worst misnomer — "gay." Gay used to mean happy, but I can assure you, homosexuals are not happy people. They habitually seek happiness by following after destructive pleasures. There is a reason Romans 1:26 calls homosexual desire a "degrading passion." It is a lust that destroys the physical body, ruins relationships, and brings perpetual suffering to the soul — and its ultimate end is death (Romans 7:5). Homosexuals are experiencing the judgment of God (Romans 1:24, 26, 28), and thus they are very, very sad.

1 Corinthians 6 is very clear about the eternal consequence for those who practice homosexuality — but there's good news. No matter what the sin is, whether homosexuality or anything else, God has provided forgiveness, salvation, and the hope of eternal life to those who repent and embrace the gospel. Right after identifying homosexuals as those who "will not inherit the kingdom of God," Paul said, "Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God" (1 Corinthians 6:11).

God's plan for many homosexuals is that they come to salvation. There were former homosexuals in the Corinthian church back in Paul's day, just as there are many former homosexuals today in my church and in faithful churches around the country. With regenerated hearts, they sit in biblical churches throughout the country praising their Savior, along with former fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, thieves, coveters, drunkards, revilers, and swindlers. Remember, such were some of you too.

What should be your response to the homosexual agenda? Make it a biblical response — confront it with the truth of Scripture that condemns homosexuality and promises eternal damnation for all who practice it. What should be your response to the homosexual? Make it a gospel response — confront him with the truth of Scripture that condemns him as a sinner, and point him to the hope of salvation through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. Stay faithful to the Lord as you respond to homosexuality by honoring His Word, and leave the results to Him.

The Harmful Agenda Behind 'LGBT Pride' Parades

Over the past 13 years, the homosexual agenda here in California has made tremendous strides for so-called LGBT Pride Rights.  What many supporters of this agenda may not realize is that these perverted "rights" trump other people's constitutional rights.  The article below from describes exactly why this is so:


June 21, 2012 -- For Immediate Release
The Harmful Agenda Behind 'LGBT Pride' Parades
Perverse parades advocate intolerant laws punishing people who disagree

Sacramento, California -- The homosexual-bisexual-transsexual parades occurring in cities in California and around the nation are harmful to both children and adults, says a veteran children and families organization.

"'LGBT Pride' means roping children into unhealthy and unnatural homosexual-bisexual-transsexual lifestyles, and eliminating the God-given, constitutional rights of everyone who disagrees," said Randy Thomasson, president of, which promotes moral virtues for the common good. "You can't support so-called 'gay rights' and at the same time support free speech, religious freedom, or freedom of association, because these concocted 'gay rights' are trampling people's true constitutional rights."

In California, the "lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender" agenda is firmly entrenched in state statutes and court rulings. As a result, so-called "LGBT rights" trump other people's constitutional rights:

1. GONE -- Religious freedom, conscience rights: Under threat of a $150,000 penalty, business owners and property owners cannot decline to hire or rent to homosexuals, bisexuals, or transsexuals despite an owner's religious or moral conscience: Homosexuality and bisexuality -- AB 1001 and AB 1670 (1999); cross-dressing and "sex changes" -- AB 196 (2003), AB 887 (2011)

2. GONE -- Parents' rights: A raft of "LGBT" laws in K-12 government schools has largely eliminated the requirement of parental permission for teaching children these sexual subjects. See the several "LGBT" laws that override parental consent

3. GONE -- Physicians' rights: You can't be a doctor in California and for religious/moral reasons, refuse artificial insemination to a lesbian: "Doctors' faith must yield to gays' rights, court says"

4. GONE -- Right of association: Owners of businesses and clubs are prohibited from exercising their First Amendment right of association regarding homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality: AB 2900 (2004), AB 1400 (2005), Bernardo Heights Country Club (2005)

Freedom of religion and freedom of assembly (association) are enshrined in the United States Constitution and the California Constitution. The fundamental right of parents to direct the education and upbringing of their children has been repeatedly affirmed by the United States Supreme Court. Yet "LGBT" statutory laws in California have been allowed to trump constitutional freedom of religion and freedom of association, as well as infringe upon fundamental parental rights. In contrast, homosexual-bisexual-transsexual "rights" are in neither the state constitution nor federal constitution. In addition, these sexual behaviors do not qualify for "civil rights" status, which is categorically limited to characteristics that are immutable -- not changeable, as homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality have demonstrated themselves to be.

"In California, religious rights, moral rights, parental rights, business owner rights, property owner rights, physicians' rights, and the right of association are being trampled by the intolerant 'LGBT' agenda," Thomasson said. "And despite their lust for dominion and their incessant attacks on other persons' constitutional rights, the homosexual-bisexual-transsexual activists deceive themselves and others by claiming to be 'victims' of peaceful people who have a conscience on these sexual behaviors. But who's trampling whom? American rights or so-called 'gay rights' -- you can't have both, because the latter eliminates the former."

Let's read Randy's paragraph above again:

"In California, religious rights, moral rights, parental rights, business owner rights, property owner rights, physicians' rights, and the right of association are being trampled by the intolerant 'LGBT' agenda," Thomasson said. "And despite their lust for dominion and their incessant attacks on other persons' constitutional rights, the homosexual-bisexual-transsexual activists deceive themselves and others by claiming to be 'victims' of peaceful people who have a conscience on these sexual behaviors. But who's trampling whom? American rights or so-called 'gay rights' -- you can't have both, because the latter eliminates the former."

The next time someone attempts to claim that conservative Christians are "trampling" upon the 'LGBT' agenda, please explain to them that in California, the religious rights, moral rights, parental rights, business owner rights, property owner rights, physicians' rights, and the right of association are being trampled by the intolerant 'LGBT' agenda!

The following blog post that was written back in October, 2011 at my sister blog, Talk Wisdom, helps explain why the evil of the 'LGBT' agenda tramples upon all of the rights listed above.  Their agenda is Satan-led.  No matter how much that realization might make you squirm, the fact of the matter is that God given American rights are trampled by the satanic agenda known as so-called 'gay rights.'  It is true that you can't have both, because the 'gay rights' continuously work to trample upon our God given American rights and strive to eliminate them.

Talk Wisdom: Deception, Division, and Destruction Are Satan's Favorite Tools

Copy of post:

While reading Dr. David Jeremiah's new book I Never Thought I'd See The Day - Culture at the Crossroads, I have come to realize that the three D's - deception, division, and destruction are Satan's favorite tools in the spiritual war against those who believe in Jesus Christ.

One very obvious example is the current Occupy Wall Street uprisings. There are some people who may have thought that they were protesting for the right reasons. But the truth is, many desperate people who have been out of work for so long have been deceived (and paid) to protest. They are spewing hate, lies, intolerance, and bigotry. They are hell bent on causing deception, division and ultimately destruction. Why? The first reason is because they are being deceived.

Dr. Jeremiah:

Satan is the great deceiver. John 8:44 records Jesus' reply to a group of Jews who were resisting His message. Jesus boldly told them that they were children of their father the devil, and that they were not hearing the truth because their father's native language was lies.

Well, guess who is the main father of lies in the Occupy Wall Street staged protests? None other than George Soros. He has often been described as a mini-me of the anti Christ - and with good reason. Do a Bing search on the man and find out what evil and destruction he has wielded across the world. He is one of the top ten billionaires in the world but uses his money to manipulate others to do his bidding for evil purposes.

Dr. Jeremiah:

Revelation 12:9 refers to Satan as the one "who deceives the whole world," which he does by imitating the work of God with counterfeit and camouflage.

The key thing to realize is that once people fall for those who do Satan's bidding, they are led astray and away from God.

Dr. Jeremiah:

Spiritual deception may be Satan's most insidious weapon in his guerrilla warfare against us. Jesus and the apostles speak of it nearly thirty times in the New Testament. One of Satan's greatest deceptions today is leading people, even Christians, to believe he does not really exist or that he isn't as bad as he's made out to be. The problem is, deceived people don't know they're being deceived! Undetected deception makes us extremely vulnerable because we do not know the enemy is even there, which means we neither watch for nor erect defenses against him. The continual deception of the great deceiver requires constant vigilance and dependence on the Word of God and the Holy Spirit.

If a person has not been born again - as Jesus told us was necessary in John 3:3, then THE most powerful weapon against spiritual deception is missing in that person. The Holy Spirit indwells believers and helps to guide them unto all truth through discernment strength when studying the Bible.

I hear people often say that they don't "understand" the Bible, or they "disagree with" some of what the Bible teaches. Why? Because they have not submitted to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Until that happens, the revelation in the Bible that points to Jesus Christ as the long-awaited Messiah will just sound like a "horrible (crucifixion) turned nice story (resurrection) to them.

When I grew up in the Catholic church, Bible study wasn't emphasized as much as the catechism of what the church taught. That is why I was personally confused about the crucifixion of Jesus. I can remember looking up on the front wall of the church, seeing the huge image of Jesus Christ being crucified on the cross and thinking, why did he have to die such an awful death?

My confusion about this remained until I was invited to a Pentecostal church by a friend I had met at work. Previously, I had not known what it meant to be born again.

Years after I took that step, the Lord led me to a Bible study in my neighborhood. It was during the inductive study of the book of John that I re-dedicated myself to Jesus Christ.

Back to the topic.

Dr. Jeremiah:

Satan is the great divider.

Satan has always been a divider. When he was cast out of heaven he divided the angels, taking a third into rebellion with him (Revelation 12:4). He divided the first couple, bringing sin and disharmony between Adam and Eve. He divided the first family, pitting Cain against Abel (Genesis 4:8). In the early Church, Satan influenced the heart of Ananias, dividing his loyalty between God and money (Acts 5:3).

Satan continues all three of these deceptions today. Deception against the goodness of God through dividing people away from Jesus Christ through various ways (i.e. false religions, mocking Christ, atheism, etc.) is increasing at an alarming rate. Dividing couples is seen through the breaking of an oath to a spouse through the rampant divorce rate, adultery and other forms of sexual sin, the killing of babies in the womb through abortion, and the list goes on and on. We see the greed of people and their nefarious activities through the evil use of wealth, which is a sign of division between such a person and God. We know the truth of the saying, "the love of money is the root of all evil." When a person loves money and what he/she can do with it for their own purposes rather than God's purposes, then we see how deception, division, and destruction can occur all around us.

Dr. Jeremiah:

Satan is the great destroyer.

The Bible liken Satan to five different animals:

He is a serpent trying to deceive God's people.
Genesis 3:1
Revelation 12:9

He is a bird trying to despoil God's harvest.
Matthew 13:4:19

He is a wolf trying to defeat God's flock.
John 10:12
Matthew 10:16

He is a lion trying to devour God's children.
1 Peter 5:8

He is a dragon trying to destroy God's Son.
Revelation 12:1-9

Satan is consumed by his obsession to destroy the work of God in the universe, and specifically on Planet Earth.

Dr. Jeremiah goes on to say that Satan will do anything - destroy, wreck, ruin, kill, inflict grief, disease, pain, and anguish - to cause the victim to blame it all on God. Unfortunately, such a strategy often works. But the faithful can stay steadfast through it all because they know Who wins in the end.

Recall all of Satan's attempts to embitter Job? He destroyed everything in Job's life - except Job's faith in God. And when Satan couldn't achieve that, God restored everything that Job had lost.

The thing to remember is what Dr. Jeremiah states here:

"all the evil and destruction inflicted upon us have their ultimate source in Satan, the great destroyer. His evil presence in our world is not God's doing; it is ours. We open the door to him by yielding to his temptation."

The account of Job is an illustration of what we must do today. No matter what happens, we must be steadfast and strong in our faith. I know it's hard - especially when we lose a loved one. But the promises of Jesus Christ lift us up and give us a hope that is beyond anything that this world could possibly offer! Jesus told us that "he is not of this world" (see John 8:23) Jesus also told us, "in this world you will have trouble. But take heart! For I have overcome the world" (see John 16:33).

Jesus Christ overcame the world at the cross! Confession and repentance of sin and simple faith (like that of a child!) in Him and what He did for the redemption of mankind at the cross is all that is needed.

Every person who ever lived has this choice:

Jos 24:14 "Now therefore, fear the LORD, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the LORD!

Jos 24:15 "And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that [were] on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."

Increasing Incidents of Pro-Homosexual Bullying

We saw the liberal left lunatic rabid hatred and bullying of Christians in the Carrie PreJean case. Now, we are experiencing it again with the case of Brandon Wegner, a 15-year-old student who was set up for humiliation and “made to be an example” by school administrators.

The following is a copy of an email sent to me by Mathew Staver:

Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman
Liberty Counsel


Liberty Counsel is not only engaged in Shawano, Wisconsin, due to egregious violations of a local student’s rights – but we are also fighting an equally important battle over the public’s perception of homosexual “rights” and increasing incidents of pro-homosexual bullying!

The sheer audacity of school administrators in the Shawano Public School System has led us to do something very assertive – we are taking this battle to the Shawano community at large as well as publicizing it nationally.

Of course, we are doing everything possible to provide excellent representation for our client, Brandon Wegner, a 15-year-old student who was set up for humiliation and “made to be an example” by school administrators. But the intolerable facts of this case make it important to totally expose the high-handed, incredibly misguided actions of Brandon’s academic authority figures.

As a Liberty Counsel team member – and especially if you are a parent or grandparent – I need you to stand with me in this critical case on behalf of the generations following us. If we don’t stop this outrageous persecution in Shawano, it will eventually show up in your community, as well! Please read my very important message and legal update – Mat.


Imagine that your teen is hauled into the principal’s office and unjustly charged with violating a school policy – when in fact, your son or daughter was following the guidelines of a school assignment under the supervision of a faculty sponsor.

Then, try to imagine that he or she is repeatedly grilled by multiple school officials without you even being notified, and that your child loses valuable study time so they can mock, humiliate, and threaten him or her into cow-towing to their viewpoint on an important social issue.

Now imagine, if you can, that your child is summarily dragged to the highest authority in the school system to be berated, condescended to, and called insulting names!

For the Wegner family in Shawano, Wisconsin, this chilling scenario worthy of the Red Guard in Communist China became a shocking reality earlier this month.

This is the case of Brandon Wegner, a 15-year-old Wisconsin student who was bullied, censored, punished, and ridiculed for writing an op-ed article explaining the Biblical view of homosexuality and speaking out in support of natural, mother-father adoption, a view held by the vast majority of Americans.

Incredibly, it turns out that the main actors in this travesty were people in authority over Brandon and his schoolmates – his high school principal and the school system superintendent. This is truly an intolerable situation!

++Brandon is now being represented by Liberty Counsel – but there is more to this unfolding story…

As the news of this outrage spreads, Americans are understandably alarmed and upset over the incident.

Because of widespread national media coverage, this case is now being debated on the national stage as well as in Brandon’s small community. That’s why I now feel it’s important to take the facts of this case into Brandon’s local area, expose those who denied him his inalienable rights, and to make the facts public knowledge.

++This outrage needs to be aired in the sunshine!

Christine, as a parent and grandparent, I am asking you to join me in this initiative and to help Liberty Counsel win this battle in the court of public opinion.

We have prepared a “Letter of Outrage” that will be signed by tens of thousands of concerned Americans and sent to the Shawano Board of Education…

and strategically placed in Shawano’s dominant media outlets…
so that pro-homosexual groups cannot distort the truth of this case…
and so that the Shawano High School Principal and Superintendent cannot “spin” the facts in the media.

There is NO constitutional defense for the school system’s acts of censorship and persecution. There is NO moral defense for Superintendent Todd Carlson’s bullying, threatening, and intimidating a student – especially when the student was in the right all along!

The fact is, Brandon Wegner was set up to be an example for anyone who dares challenge politically correct, ultraliberal, pro-homosexual indoctrination. But working together, we can turn the tables on these bullies and make THEM an example of being constitutionally illiterate, knee-jerk reactionaries, ready to collaborate with radical liberal activists at the drop of a hat!

Simply click here to sign our “Letter of Outrage” and to read Brandon’s op-ed and Liberty Counsel’s Demand Letter: [live link at end of page.]

++In case you’ve missed the details, here is what happened:

While participating in one of his school’s news writing courses, and under the supervision of a faculty sponsor, Brandon teamed up with a fellow student to produce a “point-counter-point” column for the school paper on the subject of “homosexual adoption.”

The subject of the op-ed piece was discussed among students and the newspaper’s sponsor in advance. Brandon took the position that homosexual adoption is wrong. He supported his position by citing Bible passages.

++A complaint from an adult homosexual ignited a firestorm!

A homosexual parent read the point-counterpoint article and protested. The school principal then called Brandon into his office and told him he could not speak about religion, politics, or social issues in a public school.

I’ve already related most of the rest of the story, but you can read the full report on our website at Just click on the News Release link. The details are shocking!

This is an outrageous case of misguided school officials abusing their authority and the public’s trust, trying to make an example of a morally strong student – a student who was protected in his right to speak from his unique viewpoint by the United States Constitution!

I am confident that we will successfully defend Brandon’s First Amendment rights. As I have said many times, no American’s freedom of speech is left at the schoolhouse door. We have already sent a strong letter to School Superintendent Todd Carlson DEMANDING an apology for the system’s unconstitutional and irrational censorship of Brandon’s article.

What Superintendent Carlson did is unconscionable. Now, I am calling on my Liberty Counsel team to help expose and overcome the underlying anti-family bigotry permeating our nation!

That is why we have crafted our “Letter of Outrage.” I am calling on tens of thousands of Liberty Counsel team members to sign the letter as soon as possible!

Please click here to sign and to read Liberty Counsel’s “Letter of Outrage,” our Demand Letter to the Shawano Board of Education, and Brandon’s well-written op-ed piece supporting natural marriage and adoption: [Live link at end of page.]

Now more than ever, there is a great need for the kind of assistance Liberty Counsel was founded to provide. We are literally fighting day-to-day to keep our culture from being pushed over the edge by radical bullies and misguided zealots!

Our no-charge service to Brandon and his family is one of the most important missions Liberty Counsel performs – to defend the rights of those who are being unjustly persecuted for their faith or moral convictions.

Brandon Wegner was bullied by a powerful school superintendent who had serious misconceptions about the law that governs situations like this. The misguided Shawano school administrators got the facts totally upside down!

Our Demand Letter has already gone a long way toward educating these woefully misinformed officials and Liberty Counsel will do whatever else is necessary to correct this situation. We WILL win this battle and expose the true bullies – but we need your help to do it and to win the larger battle in the public arena.

Please, click here to sign our “Open Letter of Outrage”:

Thank you for standing with Brandon and Liberty Counsel in this very important battle!

May God bless you!
