TITLE: HOMOSEXUALITY—THE LATEST LITMUS TEST OF THE LIBERAL LEFT
Subtitle: Their Militant Agenda Claims To Seek Tolerance, But Is In Fact Demanding Acceptance!
A couple of months ago I received an email from a young lady really taking us to task concerning some comments about homosexuality that appeared in a few of the articles. She was quite upset because we stated that the Bible teaches it is a sin and wanted us to know that her brother (twin, as I recall) was gay and born that way. In my answer to her, I pointed out that drunks do not have to drink and homosexuals do not have to practice deviant sex! Of course this answer did not satisfy her and she gave me several more pieces of her mind. But my heart goes out to her and all those whose relatives/friends/loved ones are drunks, drug addicts, homosexuals, etc.—addicted to destructive lifestyles and seemingly incapable of doing anything about it.
Excuses for moral failure are legion and certainly not limited to homosexuals. A sot or crack-head, in my opinion, has as much right to claim that they were born with a genetic pre-disposition as does a sexual deviant—since science has not been able to prove otherwise. But all of this is purely academic where the subject of sin is concerned, because God says that these things are an abomination in His sight and those who habitually practice them will not enter heaven! And the list is not confined to just these specific sins, because liars, murderers, fornicators, adulterers, and many others are included as well. Also the excuse about "being born that way" is totally invalid, because all of us were born sinners and unless God intervenes and saves some of us, hell will be our ultimate destination. Listen to me folks—do you realize that in God’s sight Christians are no better than the vilest, rottenest, sinner who ever lived? If we got what we deserved, we would spend eternity in the flames of hell along with the rest of fallen humanity, but genuine Christians are saved by God’s grace—and not by any goodness or merit on our part. So please understand that when we condemn specific sins such as homosexuality, it is not with a "holier than thou" attitude.
Even if the homosexual agenda were merely limited to a quiet group of people seeking tolerance and understanding from society, we would still be duty-bound as Christians to point out that their lifestyle was wrong, according to the Bible. And we should not condone it any more than we would that of a drunk or drug addict. Plus, like it or not, we all must understand that there is the additional component of an almost universal aversion to homosexuality that is felt by normal or "straight" individuals. Therefore under the best of circumstances, toleration of this lifestyle would be minimal— so in order to advance it, they know they are going to have to force it upon the majority with the full weight of the law behind it! And this is exactly what they are presently attempting to do. Flaunting their deviant behavior in the various "gay pride" parades and other confrontational tactics designed to elicit emotional responses from the public, will inevitably promote enough instances of "gay-bashing" so that our ultra-liberal congress will enact hate crime legislation to curb it. Count on it!
One of the most disturbing aspects of this whole subject, however, concerns many otherwise good and decent people, like the girl who was so upset and wrote to me about her brother. Because of their love and feelings for specific people, they are blinded to the bigger picture and the consequences of a forced tolerance. Individuals that would never dream of forcing the public into tolerating/accepting public drunkenness or the bizarre and often violent behavior of drug addicts are on the verge of playing a major role in doing the same thing for homosexuals. Why would they do this? Obviously there are many different reasons, but I think that I can highlight the most emotional one and that is the socially forbidden love (not just sex) between members of the same gender. It has to be heart-rending to have a son, daughter, or other loved one/friend who is mentally different and desires love from someone that they cannot have in the socially accepted sense—not to mention the stigma of just being gay. This just tears the heart out of a loving parent and I can honestly say that I sympathize with them. But to allow personal feelings to get in the way of what God says is right must not be done! To provide booze for the drunk and crack cocaine for the addict is unthinkable and every effort should be made to get help for them—not condone their behavior and thereby share their guilt. The same is true for the homosexual.
Now before some of you stroke out and overload your hard-drive with hate mail addressed to me, let me ask you some questions. Do you really understand the depths of the moral and sexual depravity practiced by most homosexuals? Are you aware of the extreme promiscuity of male participants—unprotected anonymous sex with multiple partners—making the curtailment of the spread of AIDS almost impossible? Yes, the homosexual community has made some effort to police themselves and cut down on this activity, but according to health-care professionals, it is far from being solved. Do you know what "water sports" are? Fisting? Amyl Nitrate "poppers"? "Glory holes"? "Bath houses"? To even describe what these things mean is almost pornographic and I hesitate to do so, but someone is going to have to explain it in detail before a lot of you "get it"!
"Water sports" is urinating on each other to get that warm and fuzzy feeling. Some smear each other with feces and eat it. Fisting is the practice of inserting the whole hand into the anus (or vagina) up to the wrist. Amyl Nitrate poppers are used to heighten the orgasm. Glory holes are openings cut in bathroom stalls for anonymous sex, oral or anal. Bath houses are meeting places for individual or group sex. And I am sure that there are many other practices I haven’t read about. But do these things really make you want to go out and join with them in promoting their cause?
So this article is basically addressed to those, like the aforementioned young lady, who are blinded by personal feelings and using excuses to try to justify forcing the rest of us to accept the homosexual into mainstream society. Complete acceptance will never be achieved unless two things are done and waiting for the public to change its mind is not one of them! To ensure the successful completion of their agenda, a two-pronged attack has been launched—with the first being the confrontational tactics of the homosexual community itself, already mentioned. The second, and most insidious, aspect of their plan involves the active promotion of their sexual orientation and practices—with the primary "educational" emphasis focused upon children. If they can entice enough people (young or otherwise) to join them in the pleasures of kinky sex, or ignore their proclivities altogether, pretty soon they will no longer be in the minority and things will even out for them. But I can almost hear some of you thinking to yourself, "I am as straight as an arrow and that would never appeal to me!" This is true, but if you are an average and normal human—sex is said to be the second most powerful drive in your life. I say second most, because self-preservation would have to be the first. S-E-X is pleasure and in case you haven’t noticed lately, the theme of sexual gratification is being promoted by every media imaginable! We know each major civilization that preceded us, eventually degenerated to the point where homosexuality was rampant—just before they fell. The Roman Empire is a perfect case in point, because historians tell us that thousands of young boys followed the soldiers of the Legions every where they went! Homosexuality was not only tolerated in ancient Greece and Rome, but was actively promoted. I read somewhere just recently that 14 of the last 16 Roman emperors were gay, so don’t get the idea that this latest scheme will not work—because it is already far along its intended path! The whole secret to its success is the gradual relaxation of social attitudes toward sex in general. Just for instance—when I was a teenager back in the ‘60s, the word sex was seldom mentioned in "polite company." But today elementary school students know what condoms are used for—and many from first-hand experience! Yes, I would have to say that the program appears to be right on schedule.
If any of you doubt the validity of the agenda as I have described it, please allow me to inform you of what took place in the state of Massachusetts recently and the fall-out is still coming down! The quotes and comments I will use came from the "Massachusetts News" (www.massnews.com) August 2000 issue.
On March 25th, the State of Massachusetts sponsored a workshop for high school students called "Teach-Out." This conference was sponsored by the Department of Education, the Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth, and the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. (Quote) "Among the goals were to build more Gay/Straight Alliances in Massachusetts and expand homosexual teaching into the lower grades. Scores of gay-friendly teachers and administrators attended. They received state ‘professional development credits.’ Teenagers and children as young as 12 were encouraged to come from around the state, and they were bussed in from their home districts. Homosexual activists from across the country were also there. To say that the descriptions below of workshops and presentations of this state-sponsored event for educators and children are ‘every parent’s nightmare,’ does not do them justice. It is beyond belief that this could be happening at all. One music teacher who attended out of curiosity said that she could not sleep for several nights afterwards and had nightmares about it. In one well-attended workshop, ‘What They Didn’t Tell You About Queer Sex and Sexuality In Health Class: A Workshop For Youth Only, Ages 14-21,’ the three homosexual presenters, acting in their professional capacities coaxed about 20 children into talking openly and graphically about homosexual sex. The three presenters, who described themselves as homosexual were: Margot E. Abels, Coordinator, HIV/AIDS Program, Massachusetts Dept. of Education. Julie Netherland, Coordinator, HIV/AIDS Program, Massachusetts Dept. of Education. Michael Gaucher, Consultant, HIV/AIDS Program, Massachusetts Dept. of Public Health.
The workshop syllabus included: ‘What’s it like to be young, queer and beginning to date?’ ‘Are lesbians at risk for HIV?’
‘We will address the information you want about queer sexuality and some of the politics that prevent us from getting our needs met.’
‘The workshop opened with the three public employees asking the children ‘how they knew, as gay people, whether or not they’ve had sex.’ Questions were thrown around the room about whether oral sex was ‘sex’ to which the Department of Public Health employee stated, ‘If that’s not sex, then the number of times I’ve had sex has drastically decreased, from a mountain to a valley, baby.’ Eventually the answer presented itself, and it was determined that whenever an orifice was filled with genitalia, then sex had occurred." (End of Quote)
Then follows three or four full columns full of questions and answers—with many of the questions literally coaxed out of the kids—involving sex acts entirely too graphic for me to quote. As a matter of fact, I am shocked that the newspaper did so! But suffice it to say that oral sex, fisting, and other related subjects were discussed thoroughly, along with dildo use, and one girl was cajoled into drawing a three-foot high vagina on the board, labeling the proper parts. And of course, this was all done with both sexes present.
In one of the question and answer sessions, the following exchange took place:
Q. What percentage of the population are homosexual?
A. Ten percent, but probably more, because not everyone admits it. [MN Editor’s note: Most experts today agree that less than 3% of the population is homosexual.]
Q. How many men and women are gay?
A. More men than women.
Q. What’s wrong with being gay?
A. Nothing. (Said with a defiant tone).
Q. Is homosexuality a sickness?
A. People used to believe that it was, but it is just one way to express sexual love.
Q. Can homosexuals choose not to be gay?
A. They can decide not to have sex with members of their own sex.
Q. What does the Bible say about homosexuality?
A. Sex is in the Bible, but it is used only for procreation. But, there are many Bible passages that say, ‘Love one another." The Bible is used against gays.
But when parents got word of exactly what took place in this "workshop," the lid blew off and the uproar has been dubbed "Fistgate" by reporters! Everyone in the administration from the Governor on down is in full damage-control mode but the outcome is yet to be determined.
For anyone interested in obtaining a tape recording of the actual "Fistgate" conference in which the state employees gave their graphic instructions about homosexual sex to the youngsters (some as young as 12), one is available free from "Massachusetts News." Their article says that this is the same tape that was originally banned by a Superior Court Judge in Boston in defiance of the U.S. Constitution because the activists and Governor Paul Cellucci do not want anyone to know about it. The article says that the fastest way to receive the tape is to use the email address: Tapes@massnews.com. OR fax to 781-239-1193 OR mail to Massachusetts News, PO Box 812844, Wellesley, MA 02482. No telephone orders accepted.
Interestingly enough, the results of a poll taken by telephone last December of 600 people in Massachusetts, showed that the overwhelming majority did not want their teenagers encouraged to be sexually active. (Wirthlin World-wide/Massachusetts News poll). In fact 92 % disagreed with the following statement: "Teenagers, regardless of whether they are heterosexual or homosexual, should be encouraged to be sexually active." And of the 282 citizens who told the pollsters they were politically liberal, the percentage who disagreed with the statement was virtually the same at 91%! Additionally, the disagreement with the statement was found to cross all areas of age, gender, and political ideology.
As David Bay has repeatedly stated in many of his articles, it is long since past time to get your kids out of public schools if you do not want them thoroughly indoctrinated in this type of thing, or worse! I have heard all of my life a saying to the effect that "familiarity breeds contempt"—the primary application being dangerous situations that become so familiar to us, we lose our proper fear of them and wind up getting hurt. All of us with any sense at all recognize areas of potential danger, but if we allow things to slide waiting for a better time to act, it is easy to wait too long. Please do yourself and your children a huge favor and try to get them into private/Christian schools, or home-school them yourself. My wife and I sent both our daughters to Christian schools from kindergarten through college and now my oldest daughter is home-schooling her children. Both Christian church schools and home schooling are growing by leaps and bounds and for those resolute enough to save their children, finances can be handled if you have enough backbone to try. Missionaries have been home schooling their children for many years and all of the "pioneering" work has been done—the text books and curriculum are well established and the results proven to be superior by years of test scores on achievement tests. If you are interested, contact us and we will point you in the right direction. May God move you to do so before it is too late.
