Supposed ‘Christian’ Dad Claims Gay Son is No Sinner

'WOE UNTO THEM THAT CALL EVIL GOOD, AND GOOD EVIL; THAT PUT DARKNESS FOR LIGHT, AND LIGHT FOR DARKNESS; THAT PUT BITTER FOR SWEET, AND SWEET FOR BITTER!'

‘WOE UNTO THEM THAT CALL EVIL GOOD, AND GOOD EVIL; THAT PUT DARKNESS FOR LIGHT, AND LIGHT FOR DARKNESS; THAT PUT BITTER FOR SWEET, AND SWEET FOR BITTER!’

Chris has a gay son. He neglected to mention that when I met him at a business event the week before last, when we talked a little politics, when he invited me to join him and his buds for their weekly golf game.

All was amicable on the golf course. As it turned out, two of the guys were fellow conservatives. And two others happened to be members of my church.

But things got twisted when our two foursomes sat down for post-round libations and conversation. That’s because Chris, a social liberal, an Obama-loving Democrat, insisted on talking politics.

And particularly about homosexual “rights.”

He made the pseudo-scientific claim that homosexuality was an “immutable” trait, like race or gender. And the church-going Presbyterian claimed there is no Biblical basis for declaring homosexuality a sin.

So I challenged him on both claims. And my fellow conservatives, my fellow church members backed me.

Having lost the debate he started, my golf host stood up and angrily stalked out of the clubhouse, leaving the other seven of us sitting there. That’s when one of the guys confided to me that Chris has a gay son.

His was the typical reaction by social liberals who have a family member or friend or business associate or even acquaintance who is gay.

The social libs not only delude themselves that homosexuality is perfectly “normal,” not only deceive themselves that homosexuality is perfectly acceptable to God, they also insist that those of us who are social conservatives, who are Bible-believing Christ followers, agree with them.

Otherwise, they slander us as “homophobes.”

But the word of God declares, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

Indeed, those of us who oppose homosexuality on Biblical grounds are very much like Lot, who lived in the ancient city of Sodom, who was visited by two angels of the Lord, whose home was surrounded by the men of the city who wanted to have to have their way, sexually, with his visitors.

“Please, my brethren,” Lot pleaded, “do not do so wickedly! See now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish.”

Lot’s gay neighbors were offended. “He keeps acting as a judge,” they murmured among themselves.

They deluded themselves that evil was good, that darkness was light. Just like Chris, who hosted me for golf, who insisted his gay son is “normal;” that his son’s sexual preference for men was okay by God.

Well, I’ve never met Chris’ boy. But I think I actually love him more than his dad does. Because I don’t want him to befall the fate of the homosexuals of Sodom, on whom God rained brimstone and fire. They all died in their unrepentant sin and will spend eternity separated from God.

Indeed, even if I accepted the dubious, politically-motivated science that there is a supposed “gay gene,” that homosexuality is a supposed “immutable” human trait, I would continue to believe homosexuality a sin.

And to those attracted to men, like Chris’ son, I would urge them to “crucify the flesh” with its passions and lusts; to present their bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God. And I would encourage that they pray that God lead them not into temptation, but deliver them from their desire for “strange flesh.”

Those of us who are social conservatives, who are Christ followers, are not “homophobes.” We do not hate gays.

We speak the truth to them – in love – that homosexuality was and is and always will be a sin. And that the Bible warns that homosexuals shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

We also encourage them that the Lord desires that none would perish, but that all should come to repentance. And that if those who are gay confess their sins – rather than denying that homosexuality in a sin in the eyes of God – He is faithful and just to forgive them and cleanse them of all unrighteousness.

Transgender Right to Teach at Christian University?

THE FORMER HEATHER ANN CLEMENT (L) IS NOW HEATH ADAM ACKLEY (R).

THE FORMER HEATHER ANN CLEMENT (L) IS NOW HEATH ADAM ACKLEY (R).

For 15 years, Heather Ann Clement was a faculty member at Azusa Pacific University, an evangelical Christian school in Southern California.

But that changed last month, with the start of Azusa’s new academic year, when Heather came out as a transgender. The professor of theology began referring to herself as Heath Adam Ackley. And she even started to develop a more masculine appearance.

The professor of theology formerly known as Heather demanded that Azusa officially recognize “his” new name and gender change. So university administrators sat the prof down for several “thoughtful conversations.”

After hearing out Heather/Heath, it was abundantly clear to Azusa administrators that the evangelical Christian university’s long established “views on the theology of sexuality” were decidedly different from those of the transgender faculty member.

So they decided “it would be best for Dr. Ackley to pursue professional endeavors elsewhere.” And, by “mutual agreement,” he resigned this past Friday.

But not without becoming the latest cause célèbre among crusaders for LGBT “rights.” Indeed, said Ackley, he has garnered an “overwhelming amount of support” from his former students at Azusa, from fellow university professors, and from sympathizers on social media.

“We stand in solidarity with Adam,” declares an online petition, posted by Alyson Thatcher, an Azusa student.

She and her likeminded classmates, “strive to create a safer environment for students and faculty who have been marginalized by APU’s conservative policies, as well as those who have been victims of spiritual violence on campus.”

But what, pray tell, did young Miss Thatcher expect when she enrolled at Azusa?

That the Christian evangelical university would be no different than your typical Godless, socially-liberal institution of supposed higher learning?

That LGBT profs like Heather/Heath would be welcomed on Azusa’s God-fearing, socially conservative faculty? That students would spend their four years on campus partying like the last days of Sodom and Gomorrah?

And, as to the newly unemployed professor of theology formerly known as Heather, she/he obviously was deluded in thinking she/he could “reinvent” herself as a man, and her/his abomination before God wouldn’t get her/him kicked off the Azunsa faculty.

The transgender didn’t violate any of the university’s policies, her/his attorney, Paul Southwick, told NBC4 in Los Angeles. “The only code they have is homosexual conduct,” Southwick argued, “but Adam hasn’t (engaged) in homosexual conduct.”

His client is just a man trapped in a woman’s body.

Well, Heather/Heath’s gender-identity issues may not be a problem at secular universities – in fact, it probably would be celebrated as example of the university’s commitment to “diversity” in even its most perverse manifestations.

But no truly Christian institution would knowingly and willingly subject its young and impressionable students to an unabashed, unrepentant transgender professor.

Are Asunza administrators “homophobes” or “bigots” or “haters,” as they’ve been accused by supporters of Heather/Heath? Absolutely not.

They have responded with grace to the former prof’s gender confusion. “We appreciate Dr. Ackley’s past service,” read a statement from the university president, “and pray God’s best for the journey ahead.”

Defiling the Lord’s Day With Gay Pride Parades

GAY PRIDE PARADES, ALREADY ORGIASTIC, WILL BE ESPECIALLY UPROARIOUS TODAY IN WAKE OF SUPREME COURT RULINGS.

GAY PRIDE PARADES, ALREADY ORGIASTIC, WILL BE ESPECIALLY UPROARIOUS TODAY IN WAKE OF SUPREME COURT RULINGS.

From Chelsea in New York City to Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C. to Boystown in Chicago to the Castro in San Francisco, homosexuals across the country are celebrating gay pride today.

Their orgiastic parades – at which men in various stages of undress often can be seen groping on each other while prancing down the street – will probably be especially uproarious this year in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s twin rulings this past week effectively legalizing same-sex marriage.

It’s “a victory for American democracy,” proclaimed President Obama.

“This was discrimination enshrined in law,” he said. “It treated loving, committed gay and lesbian couples as a separate and lesser class of people. The Supreme Court has righted that wrong, and our country is better off for it. We are a people who declared that we are all created equal – and the love we commit to each other must be equal as well.”

Obama is dead wrong.

It’s hard to see how the high court’s rulings were victories for democracy when it struck down a federal law – the Defense of Marriage Act – that won bipartisan approval in Congress and was signed into law by former President Clinton, and when it nullified a state law passed California voters – Proposition 8 – which defined marriage as a union between one man and one woman.

The president says, rightly, we are all created equal. But what he refuses to acknowledged is that the Creator of us all has declared, unequivocally, that homosexual practices are an abomination before Him.

Indeed, it is because the men of Sodom and Gomorrah were guilty of “giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh” that the Almighty destroyed the two cities of the plain.

And the everlasting God has not suddenly changed His perspective on same-sex couplings, no matter the Supreme Court’s rulings; no matter President Obama’s pronouncement.

Homosexuality remains today an abomination in the eyes of God. And the proof is that He continues to punish those who engage in sodomy in such gay communities as Chelsea, Dupont Circle, Boystown and the Castro.

Indeed, just this past spring the national Centers for Disease Control released a report which confirmed that one of every five MSM – that’s CDC’s designation for “men who have sex with men” – are HIV-positive. And nearly half don’t even know they are infected, often spreading the disease to others.

“Sexual risk factors account for most HIV infections in MSM,” according to CDC. Moreover, homosexuals  are at “increased risk for syphilis, gonorrhea, and Chlamydia.”

“The most effective ways to prevent HIV and other sexually transmitted infections,” CDC advised, “are to avoid anal sex.” In other words, don’t chase strange flesh.

If homosexuality was natural, one in five gay men wouldn’t be afflicted with HIV, along with God knows how many infected with other sexually transmitted diseases.

That’s the dark side of homosexuality that will go unacknowledged at today’s gay pride parades throughout the country.

Slouching Toward Gay Takeover of Boy Scouts

SNL SKIT, DEPICTING SCOUT LEADER 'GROOMING' INNOCENT SCOUT, OUTRAGED GAY COMMUNITY.

SNL SKIT, DEPICTING SCOUT LEADER ‘GROOMING’ INNOCENT SCOUT, OUTRAGED GAY COMMUNITY.

One of the more memorable sketches to air on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” featured actor Alec Baldwin and comedian Adam Sandler as members of a Boy Scout troop.

Baldwin played a gay scoutmaster, “Mr. Armstrong.” Sandler reprised his role as “Canteen Boy,” a scout clearly suffering arrested development.

In the sketch, Mr. Armstrong makes a sexual advance on Canteen Boy, brushing his unshaven face against the lad. So uncomfortable is Sandler’s character, who is not so dimwitted that he doesn’t know a pedophile when he sees one, that he flees into the woods.

The sketch was uproariously funny.

But what is not funny is the prospect that the Boy Scouts of America will today reverse its longstanding policy barring openly gay adults and boys from bringing their homosexuality to scouting.

It is almost certain that if BSA allows gay scoutmasters – like Mr. Armstrong – it is only a matter of time before one of them succumbs to the lust of the lies and the lust of the flesh and molests an innocent young scout.

I’m not hating on homosexuals. I’m not saying they are all child-molesters-in-waiting.

I’m not trying to stir up controversy (as SNL did with its provocative Canteen Boy sketch, which the gay community condemned as homophobic, and for which all-too-politically-correct Alec Baldwin continues to apologize to this day).

I’m just looking at the hard evidence.

Indeed, just this past October, the Boy Scouts of America released 20 years worth of documents revealing a pattern of molestation by not a couple dozen, not a couple hundred, but thousands of grown up men who saw scout troops as a target rich environment to exercise their sexual depravity.

The Los Angeles Times painstakingly examined nearly 1,900 confidential files created between 1970 and 1991 (only God knows how many there have been since then).

The common thread, according to the Times, is that molesters engaged in what psychologists call “grooming behavior,” a gradual seduction in which under-age Boy Scouts were lavished with gifts, favors and attention.

In hundreds of cases, Scout leaders allowed the boys to drive cars, drink alcohol or look at pornography. They gradually tested physical boundaries during skinny dipping, group showers, sleepovers and one-on-one activities.

Those Mau-Mauing the Boy Scouts to open up their ranks to homosexuals would have us believe that doing so will not lead to more unholy man-boy sexual abuse.

But even dimwitted Canteen Boy would know better than that.

‘Straight, Christian’ Pretended to be Gay For a Year

TMOTHY KUREK, AUTHOR OF ‘THE CROSS IN THE CLOSET,’ WITH SHIRTLESS  FRIENDS AT NASHVILLE GAY PRIDE DAY.

I don’t believe Timothy Kurek. He’s the alleged Christian, alleged heterosexual who told ABC News he spent a year “pretending” to be gay.

Why did the 26-year-old Nashville man, a graduate of Liberty University (the so-called evangelical “West Point”) decide to go undercover? Because, he said, he wanted to “walk in the shoes” of a homosexual.

So Kurek went all in.

He “came out” as gay to all his family and friends. He got a job in a gay café. He hung out at a gay bar. He joined a gay softball league. He even got a gay bud of his – “a big, black, burly Teddy bear” is how Kurek described him – to be his “pretend” boyfriend.

So how did it all work out for Kurek?

Well, he said, he “went from being a very conservative Christian to being an ally of the gay community.”

That’s because church people are so intolerant, so judgmental, so unwilling to accept that homosexuality is on a moral par with heterosexuality.

In church, said Kurek, “You learned to be afraid of God” and that “the loving thing to tell  my friend that is gay, ‘Hey listen, you are an abomination and you need to repent to go to heaven.’ I absolutely believed in that lock, stock and barrel.”

Well, I don’t know what kind of church Kurek attended. And I don’t know what kind of theology it espoused.

I just know I’ve attended a number of churches around the country with conservative Christian congregations.

None of them taught that Christ followers should be “afraid” of God. And I heard no pastor say that the loving thing to tell any gay friends or family we might have is that they are abominable and going to hell if the don’t straighten up.

What I heard in those conservative Christian churches is that God is love. That He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. That He is not willing that any should perish – including gays – but that all should come to repentance.

Kurek, author of a book, “The Cross in the Closet,” thinks gays have nothing to repent. He thinks it should be perfectly acceptable for man to lie with man, and woman to lie with woman.

Well, God’s Word says otherwise.

And allies of the gay community, like Kurek, the alleged Christian, espouse false doctrine when they tell homosexuals  they can live in defiance of that Word without fear of eternal separation from the Almighty.

Has Homosexuality Become the New Normal?

COOPER WAS A GAY COVERBOY LONG BEFORE HE CAME OUT YESTERDAY.

One needn’t have had “gaydar” to know that Anderson Cooper was homosexual. That’s why the significance of the CNN anchor’s declaration yesterday – “I’m gay, always have been, always will be” – is not that he made it, but that he felt so empowered to do so.

In an email to Andrew Sullivan, a fellow homosexual who authors a blog for the Daily Beast, Cooper explained that he was reminded recently “that while as a society we are moving toward greater inclusion and equality for all people, the tide of history only advances when people make themselves fully visible.”

That’s the gay strategy – to “make themselves fully visible.” As Sullivan wrote on his blog, “The visibility of gay people is one of the core means for our equality.”

That’s why gay rights activists so often state that every one of us knows someone or another who is gay.

The implication is that homosexuals constitute a sizable minority; that they deserve to be full integrated into every area of society, from the military to the Boy Scouts; that they deserve to be accorded the very same rights as heterosexuals, from marriage to adoption of children.

But homosexuals are not nearly as sizable a minority as the unsuspecting American public has been misled to believe.

Sure, most of us know someone or another who is gay. But most of us also know someone or another who is Asian.

Asians constitute a mere 5 percent of the U.S. population, which most of us would not consider sizeable. And the homosexual population is not even half that of the Asian population.

That’s not the disinformation of one of the “pastors calling for the death of gay people,” as Sullivan decried, but the fact-based conclusion of Garance Franke-Ruta, a senior editor at The Atlantic magazine.

In an article published this past spring, Franke-Ruta, who is no conservative, no evangelical Christian, pointed to an April 2011 study by the Williams Institute, a gay and lesbian think tank at UCLA, which calculated that only 1.7 percent of Americans between 18 and 44 are homosexual.

Given that data, wrote Franke-Ruta, the size of the gay population has been “massively overestimated” by members of the American public. She points to a Gallup poll last year in which those surveyed figured that gays and lesbians made up more than 25 percent of theU.S.population.

That so many Americans mistakenly believe that the homosexual population is 15 times larger than it actually is shows how successful gay rights activists have been in portraying their constituency as a sizable minority.

And they have managed to do so because of their prominence in such highly visible professions as media, entertainment and politics.

Indeed, Cooper’s acknowledgement yesterday that he is gay “and proud” was preceded several months ago by a similar announcement by fellow CNN anchor Don Lemon. And it will surprise hardly anyone when and if a former CNN anchor, currently working for a rival network, follows the lead of Lemon and Cooper.

Meanwhile, a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly featured a cover story on “The New Art of Coming Out.” It celebrates “the new casual methods celebrities are using to reveal their sexuality publicly for the first time.”

That includes such Hollywood gays as Jim Parsons, a cast member on CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory,” Zachary Quinto, who appeared on NBC’s “Heroes,” before moving on to such movies as Star Trek, Matt Bomer, star of USA Network’s “White Collar,” Jesse Tyler, of ABC’s “Modern Family” and Jane Lynch, of  FOX’s “Glee.”

Then there’s the political world, where homosexuality is no longer the liability with voters it once was. Indeed, the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, which makes campaign contributions to homosexual candidates throughout the country, says there are more than 1,000 open gay elected officials serving at some level or another in government.

And the gay community has a very special relationship with the Obama administration, which, according to the Victory Fund, has appointed more than 250 gays, lesbians, bi-sexuals, and transgenders to full-time and advisor positions with the executive branch, “more than all know LGBT appointments of other presidential administrations combined.”

The success of homosexuals in infiltrating the media, Hollywood and politics explains why so many Americans have been duped into believing that every fourth person is gay or lesbian or (other).

It also explains how the tiny minority has managed to advance its ungodly agenda, over the objection of the majority of Americans who continue to believe that homosexuality is a sin.
