Spreading The Gospel

With Them I Stand


It is true that I have been told that I rail too much against homosexuality. And I do rail against the immorality and godless practice of not homosexuality alone but also against all things that are an offense to the Word of God. My cries will not soften as I see this nation emboldening a group of people that are less than two percent of the population and are setting the course to change the culture of morality in this nation. Consider, for instance, a fairly new law in Houston, Texas wherein the lesbian mayor seeks to employ tactics of “fairness” in discriminatory practices in favour of the local LGBT community. Among the fair things required are that those that feel they are a certain gender at any given time are allowed to use the bathroom of choice depending on feeling rather than actual gender (http://www.thenewamerican.com/culture/faith-and-morals/item/18398-houston-city-council-passes-pro-homosexual-law-opponents-vow-to-fight).

This resulted in the people of Houston putting forth a petition in order to overturn the law. And of course the fair authorities declared that there were not enough names on the petition even though the numbers far exceeded the required amount of signatures. This did not sit well with the citizenry of Houston so that there was another legal uprising which included at least five pastours in Houston. Needless to say the lesbian mayor (whom I choose not to mention) decided that she wanted no dissenting voices from the clergy. With that decision it was further decided that the people of God had to turn over their speeches to congregants particularly in respect to discussions on homosexuality (http://www.thepoliticalinsider.com/frighten-every-american-believes-freedom/). The clergy members continue to stand against the tyranny of a few that seek only to push an agenda that is largely unwanted.

I stand with these men of God. I, too, stand against the immorality of homosexuality. The law in place in Houston is an unjust law on many fronts. Among the ideas presented is the fallacious idea of illegal discrimination against homosexuals. Perhaps the, ah, good mayor of Houston should be reminded of the idiom coined by Augustine, “An unjust law is no law at all.” Wait a minute! This mayor is certainly not familiar with the teachings of Church fathers so perhaps she should be reminded of the constitutional amendments. Never mind, she apparently is not familiar with those either. Nonetheless the fact of the matter is that the few homosexuals not only in this country but also in Houston suffer no discrimination. They have jobs and are not denied housing. The Supreme Court, and other lower courts, have even chimed in and declared that States banning same sex marriages are acting anti-constitutionally. This seems strange to me as I have found no place in the Constitution that supports heterosexual marriage. How then can there be clauses for same sex marriages?

The fact of the matter is that this mayor does not care about anything except her own agenda. Her agenda has nothing to do with what she was elected mayor to do. Now, I really don’t care how homosexuals choose to live. Yes, it is an offense to God and directly opposed to His Word. Still God has provided choices if we will walk in a holy manner or live according to the rudiments of the flesh. Well, I choose holiness and so do those faithful ones in Houston. I stand with them and will not bend to the winds of perversion which seek only to destroy a nation whose founding is predicated on the freedom Scripture provides. I will not give in to the feel good legislation that causes only a few to feel good for but a moment of time. I will not give in and I will not give up!

If it sounds like I am taking this matter personally you can bet that I am. I am more than weary of political hacks telling me what I can and cannot preach over the pulpit. I am sick and tired of my fellow clergy members being threatened because they stand on the Word of God. I have had more than I am willing to take and I am fully in support of the First Amendment which affords me not only the right to worship God but also the absolute write to say what I will in respect to same. Yes, dang blast it, I have had enough and will not sit idly by while my country is being run over not only by illegal immigrants but also my rights are being stripped away piece by piece. Well, enough already! It is time for Christians to stand and to stand uncompromisingly.

You men of God down in Houston, I stand with you. No, I do not hate homosexuals I just love the Word of God more. And, it may as well be stated that I won’t marry some heterosexual couples never mind homosexuals. I simply will not go against the teachings of the Word of God because I fear God way more than I will ever fear man. No, I will not succumb to the threats of imprisonment or to ruthless tactics of the IRS. Yes, there are some that stand on the principles of God and it is with them I stand!

  1. I stand with you and all those who stand with God and His Word regarding homosexuality being an abomination to Him. But the bathroom issue for the LGBT community will not go away easily until we can accommodate these folks, even as we know the necessity of having access to a toilet when nature calls. Realistically, unisex single toilet stalls are already in use in many large markets. Why not have more of these in public places. After all, aren’t we just talking about common decency and privacy? LGBT people want bathroom privacy as much as we do. I, for one recommend sharing bathrooms or taking turns using them than to cause anyone discomfort, shame or fear over over the need to access a toilet. If one has a problem with that then don’t wander too far from home.

    • The bathroom issue, I feel, is just another political ploy. What if a person states he/she feels a certain way that day? I have to tell you that when I visited Japan some years ago the culture allowed for unisex restrooms. I was extremely uncomfortable to the point that I waited until I got back on the ship. How much more discomfort for very young people? You are right about the “family bathroom.” Perhaps they can just use them. Frankly I don’t see why the country has to bend to the political agenda of a grave minority.

      Thanks for reading and commenting.

      • Hi Preacher Carter, I think if more people went abroad and/or on the mission field as some of us have been, they would not likely fuss about comfort. Safety and privacy are my only concerns after being on 3 mission trips to China and 14 to Luzon, Philippines. I was thankful whenever I could find a restroom even if there was no running water, soap or hand towels and toilet tissue! Enough said, though. ~Liz

      • I certainly agree with a certain level of comfort. You and I have both experienced things many in this country never will. Even so I would not take kindly my standing over a urinal and a lady behind me waiting for me to finish. Actually, I don’t like men behind me either so I guess my argument, at least in that end is moot. 😉
