Last night a member of our church handed me a newspaper clipping. At first glance, I thought it to be a picture of some of the youth from our church sitting in school bleachers, the recipients of some type of special award. I thanked her and started to walk away when I noticed the photo captured the current members of our school’s Gay Straight Alliance with the accompanying information:
“….Gay-Straight Alliance will be honored with the GSA of the Year Award, presented by First Data Corporation, for its positive impact on their school culture.” (emphasis mine)
The phrase that sticks in my craw is “its positive impact on their culture.” Obviously, our culture has spiraled down the toilet.
Additional information about the club cites:
“The club was founded by students to combat the anti-LGBT climate of their school and community, and has since become one of the most active student organizations at the school. GSA members have lobbied for state anti-bullying policies that protect LGBT students and organized community events in support of LGBT-inclusive curricula.”
An admirable accomplishment by an organization headed by students, but the club’s primary purpose is to normalize the LGBT lifestyle. GLSEN advocates see gay rights as the civil rights issue of the 21st century, comparing their plight to the racial tensions of the 1950’s and 60’s. However, that comparison is faulty.
When Black Americans marched and spoke for civil rights, they weren’t requesting special rights. They pressed for equal rights. The gay movement demands not only that their brand of sexuality and marriage be legal, but also to be liked. When Christians push back based upon Biblical teaching, those who cry the loudest for tolerance, berate and belittle the dissenters, labeling them “intolerant homophobes.” So much for tolerance…..
From the American Family Association, Ray Rooney Jr., Digital Media Editor writes concerning the gay rights movement,
“…it’s not a battle for equality as it was with the civil rights movement. It’s a demand for acceptance. Acceptance of unrighteousness. And even if the unrighteous pass laws in this country that recognize homosexual unions as legitimate marriages it will never ever be accepted by those who believe in the holiness of God. And more importantly, because homosexuality is the fruit of sin, it will never be legitimate before God.
Just because Modern Family normalizes a two-daddy household that gives no group the right to call into question the teaching of a book many call antiquated and out of touch with this “evolved” society. Oh, and go ahead, hit me with the argument beginning with, “What about adultery?”
What about it?
Yes, adultery’s sin as well. But take note, there are no adulterers organizing “Adulterer Rights Parades.” We never hear about adulterers suing bakeries for refusing to craft beautiful, ‘Congrats on your adulteress relationship’ cakes. Even if adulterers attempt to justify their choice of cheating on their spouse, the poster child for infidelity and a former sitting President isn’t out on the speaking tour challenging Americans to legitimize the behavior.
Why? Because that would glorify and normalize a sexual sin, labeled as such, since the dawn of time.
How does a GSA in the Bible Belt win club of the year? A friend suggested ‘momentum.’ I concur but I also suggest it’s a concerted effort by the Left to infiltrate one of the most conservative strongholds in the nation.
The Bible teaches in Proverbs 14:34,
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”
Throughout God’s Word we read numerous accounts of nations experiencing God’s wrath because of an intentional decision to chase after other gods. In the instances of Israel’s wanderings from the truth, many of “God’s chosen people” wound up in captivity. I can’t help but think that God’s Hand of judgment stands ready to strike America, for if He does not, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.
