The Attack of the Homosexuals
by Bob Pulliam
That title kinda sends shivers up your spine, doesn't it? It makes me think of the scene outside of Lot's house the night before the city of Sodom was destroyed (Gen 19). The men of the city had gathered and tried to force their way into Lot's house. They wanted to forcibly lay with (a euphemism for sexual relations) the two male visitors.
Well, that is not the attack that I have in mind with this article. It is not even the kind of attack I write of. I would like to draw your attention to the fact that there are attempts around this country to sanction homosexuality in several ways. Unfortunately, it is succeeding. And there are some big names behind it. For example, Proctor & Gamble has actively supported the homosexual cause. When a law was proposed in Cincinnati, Ohio giving special rights to homosexuals; P & G was the biggest financial contributor to the cause. On the other hand, they refused to support the Ohio Marriage Protection Amendment, which defined marriage as being exclusively between a man and a woman.
Ford Motor Company has been a long standing supporter of the homosexual agenda. And more recently Wal-Mart has joined the ranks of financial supporters. Wal-Mart has been accepted into the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, and financially supports that organization. Wal-Mart was also involved in recent attempt to vote down a marriage amendment in Idaho. This means they would have us not only accept homosexual marriages, but also allow them to adopt children.
In January of 2005, I listened as Bill O'Reilly took his stand in favor of homosexual couples adopting children out of the Florida foster care system. At one point he made the argument that the Florida foster care system is in shambles, and that homosexual adoption would be far better. Talk about presenting an argument with >spin' in the "no-spin zone". What a hypocrite!...
And then there's the case in Pennsylvania where four people were facing major prison sentences and fines for speaking out and reading the Bible at an homosexual event. Homosexuals in the U.S. Justice Department advised the police to arrest these people.
The Truth About the Matter...
Most of us have no conception of what is involved in the homosexual community. We are told that the weird, perverted acts attributed to them is a myth. Homosexuals like that are an exception to the rule, we are told. But the truth is, a high percentage involve themselves in acts that I wouldn't dare speak of here. And when it comes to the lasting relationships we are told exist C there is the real myth.
In 1984, a couple of researchers (who were homosexuals), published the results of a study they conducted on 156 homosexual couples. The book was entitled, "The Male Couple: How Relationships Develop". In this study, they reported a 95% infidelity rate! Why in the world would that be true?... Let me take a guess... Relationships driven by sex become unsatisfactory.
In 1991, a homosexual doctor named Martin Danicker published a study of 100 men in committed relationships. He found an 83% infidelity rate! And what is the possibility that not everyone in the study >fessed up?
Here is an answer for Mr. Bill "no spin" O'Reilly's question of whether or not it would be better if homosexual couples could marry. When you put a child under the care of a homosexual couple, there is a 90% (roughly) chance that the relationship will end. Who gets the kid? They are now locked into a series of parental relationships that can't help but fail. And we won't even approach the probability that the child will be molested. There is another area we are told is myth; but deviant sexual behavior is going to seek an outlet.
The recent stir over congressman Mark Foley's actions is just another flag in the position that homosexuality is an endless quest for deviant gratification. You may not have noticed, but the word "homosexuality" is being distanced from this case. It's just a case of "pedophilia", according to the news. Can no one see that these were young boys that this man was soliciting? Yes it's pedophilia, but consider who this man was seeking to lure! And what can we say about Foley's colleague from Arizona (Jim Kolbe), who is an avowed homosexual? This man knew about these goings on as early as 2000. Wonder why he wouldn't blow the whistle on this behavior. Seems to me authorities need to confiscate his computer and see what he's up to!
Now here is the biggest myth of all: "Homosexuals are born that way and cannot help it." Are homosexuals born that way? No! There isn't a single study that proves such. The studies that are claimed as proof are skewed and misleading. People who say they knew they were homosexual from a very young age (like 4 or 5), are admitting more than they realize. What four or five year old is thinking about sex C unless they have been molested, or have been exposed to pornography? Children have curiosities at various stages of development, but such is not a sexual orientation. Behavior is what makes the difference. Experience begins to draw the line. So the bottom line here is that homosexuality is nothing one should ever experiment with. It is a dark path with sad consequences. Unfortunately, a great number of homosexuals were pushed onto the path by being molested in childhood. But this does not mean they have no other choice.
More Truth About the Matter...
The Bible does not condemn homosexuality? That's what the modern denominations are trying to convince us of. But the Bible does condemn homosexuality! That is the truth about the matter. Why would God want to limit us in such a way? Just read the previous section again. Homosexuality is not beneficial, or normal. God has forbidden this behavior because it is harmful. Here are three examples of Bible condemnations:
AIf a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them." (Lev 20:13)
ADo you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God." (I Cor 6:9f)
AFor this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 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 1:26f)
That seems pretty clear. Kinda hard to misunderstand any of it. In fact, the Bible makes it clear that we haven't. The Bible condemns homosexuality, and that is why a great deal of society is waging war against the Bible. But they don't want you to know it. They claim that the Bible is their friend. They claim that the Bible does not condemn homosexuality. They claim that they have no problem with the Bible. Oh yeah?...
Remember those people jailed in Pennsylvania? They weren't chanting anti-homosexual slogans, or intimidating anyone. Do you know what they were doing? They were reading the above verses from their Bibles. If the homosexual community is correct, and the Bible does not condemn homosexuality, then why would reading these verses be a problem? Hmmmmmm......
