The Four Freedoms: 75 Years of Liberal Betrayal

 

Author: Christopher Chantrill
Source: American Thinker – 12.31.2013

In the second half of the 2000s liberals did a fine job of blaming Bush for everything that went wrong in the US. His “neo-con” supporters, they asserted, were just as bad.

Now that President Obama and his signature legislation are a twin disaster the same opportunity beckons for conservatives. It’s not just Obama, it’s the whole liberal project that created this mess. So the road to 2016 involves discrediting Obama, but also the whole liberal ruling class.

A good place to start would be FDR’s Four Freedoms, for when the campaign to elect the un-Obama kicks off in 2016 it will be 75 years since Franklin Delano Roosevelt unveiled his Four Freedoms on January 6, 1941. In case you forgot, the freedoms were:

Freedom of Speech

Freedom of Worship

Freedom from Want

Freedom from Fear

Have you ever thought about how the liberals have utterly betrayed the noble sentiments of the Four Freedoms?
Nothing personal here. It’s just that all power corrupts, and liberal power corrupts absolutely.

Let us give our liberal friends the benefit of the doubt and stipulate that, then and now, liberals believe what they say they believe in. Even so, for the sake of truth, justice and the American Way, we must look at the liberal record on the Four Freedoms.

The Four Freedoms were famously depicted by Norman Rockwell in the Saturday Evening Post, and the first freedom was a painting of an earnest young white working-class man standing up to speak his mind at a public meeting. Today, the only place you get to hear the voices of white working-class men in America, according to Camille Paglia, is on sports radio. And we’ve just come through a comical episode where the activist group GLAAD, spear-carrier of the liberal cultural elite, got its head handed to it after a gratuitous lunge at the free-speech right of a conservative Christian.
- Reality Bites Gays

The point is that liberals today stand foursquare against any speech that hasn’t been pre-approved by the liberal censors, and they operate blacklists against people that violate liberal speech codes, according to the principle that you’ll never get a job in this tinsel-town again. Liberals have utterly betrayed their belief in Freedom of Speech.

When it comes to Freedom of Worship, depicted by Rockwell as an angelic grandmother piously saying her prayers in church, liberals seem to have misinterpreted religious freedom as Freedom from Worship. Today’s liberals are united in a war against God-based religion. Except Islam, of course. Why is it that liberals give Islam a pass?
The sick joke is that while liberals declare that God is dead and religion is bigotry and superstition and worry about the least little religious symbol on government land, everything that liberals do and believe creates an establishment of secular religion — from forcing little children into government secular schools down to the GLAADs and the HRCs and the PETAs filling in for the Spanish Inquisition.
- Deconstructing Liberal Tolerance

What about Freedom from Want? Surely liberals have been true to their last on that, shoveling trillions of dollars every year at the poor and the helpless. Unfortunately the Newest Poor Laws of the 1960s War on Poverty have been every bit as useless as the old Poor Law of the late 1500s and the New Poor Law of 1834 in getting the poor out of pauperism. Even liberal economist Robert William Fogel admits: today’s problem is not material inequality but a “maldistribution of spiritual resources.” But Fogel’s solution is that:

The nation should develop a program to provide the poor in spirit with spiritual values such as a “sense of purpose,” a “vision of opportunity,” a “sense of the mainstream of work and life,” a “strong family ethic,” “a sense of community,” … a “sense of benevolence,” “a sense of discipline,” … and “self-esteem.”

The trouble is that government can’t do that, never could, never would, and liberals can’t bring themselves to admit it. Why? Because government only does force; family and work and benevolence is what religion teaches. See liberals and Freedom of Worship above.

Finally, what about Freedom from Fear? Never mind, liberals were hypocrites about that from the very start. Right after FDR spoke grandly in 1941 about a “world-wide reduction of armaments” he spoke of “this foreign peril” and declared that “the immediate need is a swift and driving increase in our armament production.” Today the great need is freedom from fear of the IRS, the NSA, and the TSA.
- Are We Living In A Police State?

Again, this isn’t personal. All power corrupts and fundamental transformation corrupts fundamentally. Even for liberals.

Our job is to remove today’s corrupt ruling class from the citadel, and to do that we need to discredit liberal power. Let’s get started right now.

Destroying the Myths of the Gay Community

09/01/2014


This is a two-part article; the first part discusses the lie that Homosexuality is genetic and therefore the Homosexual is unable to opt out of their lifestyle.
The second article examines and debunks some of the major myths concerning Homosexuality which are being fostered upon North American society by the Homosexual Agenda’s influence in the educational system, the mainstream media, and the entertainment industries.

Is It Possible for Homosexuals to Change?

Mike{1} was marching in a Gay Pride parade when God got a hold of him. He had been high for four days and his “buzz” suddenly evaporated as he heard a voice in his head say, “You don’t have to live like this.” He knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was God offering him a way out. He put down his Gay Pride sign, left the parade, sat down in a nearby stairwell, and repented of his rebellion.
He gave his heart to Jesus Christ and starting walking out of homosexuality that day. Today, several years later, he is married with a child, and living a very different kind of life. Not just on the outside; his heart was changed from the inside out.

Randy was on a self-destructive path of drug and alcohol abuse and homosexual activity. When he told his mother he was gay, she threw him out of the house, and the only place he could find belonging, safety, and identity was the gay community. As he spent more and more time “escaping” the pain in his life through sex and alcohol, he began to realize how bad his life was. He wanted to die but God had something else in mind.

Randy was invited to a Bible study where he met a man who had left the gay lifestyle and was living a changed life. For the first time he honestly called out and said, “God, please help me.”

One of his friends became a Christian. He asked her about homosexuality and was angered by her initial response. She said, “I now believe it is a sin–but God wouldn’t call it a sin if there weren’t something better.” Randy eventually realized that he was a sinner who needed God’s love and grace, and in 1992 he trusted Christ as his Savior. Two months later, he was led to Living Hope, an organization that helps people walk out of homosexuality through an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. He left his homosexual identity behind and embraced his true identity as a child of God, committed to holiness and purity. Randy is now director of that ministry and is helping others walk out of homosexuality. He’s not perfect, he’s still growing . . . just like me and every other Christian I know. But the “something better” God had in mind for him is an intimacy with Christ that is breathtaking.
Randy brings glory to God every day of his life by living out the abiding truth that change is possible.

Stories of Women
Carol grew up in a religious home with parents whose standards were too strict to allow her to please them. But she was smart, and a good student, and her teachers gave her the affirmation and encouragement her heart longed for. She developed very strong bonds with her teachers, some of which became profound emotional dependencies.

In graduate school, she was hit by the unexpected pain of loneliness and emptiness. Carol got into an intense relationship with a married woman, facing completely new temptations. She was totally unprepared to resist the strength of same-gender attraction, and quickly found herself emotionally and physically involved in a relationship she couldn’t believe was happening. Now she was not only emotionally needy, she was shackled by deep shame, woundedness, and guilt.

A friend told her about a ministry to those dealing with same-sex attraction, and it was like finding a door to another world. Through the support she found there, Carol was challenged to identify the lies of Satan which she had believed her whole life and replace them with the truth of Scripture. God is renewing her mind, meeting her deep heart-needs, and bringing her to a place of freedom and hope.
- Praying for Richmond, VA and the Greater Richmond Area

Diane’s story is different. She spent eighteen years in a committed lesbian relationship with another woman she believed to be her soul-mate. They went through a commitment ceremony in a gay church, and raised a daughter together. She enjoyed a position of leadership as a bright and articulate spokesperson for a gay church.

Through all those years, Diane’s mother was steadfast in three things. She loved Diane unconditionally. She never backed down about her belief that her daughter’s lifestyle was sinful because God says it’s wrong. And third, she prayed faithfully for her daughter.

Diane and her partner sought the Lord about everything except their sexuality. At one point, they were praying together for wisdom and truth about a situation that had nothing to do with their relationship. God answered their prayer in an unexpected way; He showed them the truth about the sinful nature of their relationship. It was a terribly painful and unwelcome discovery to learn that they had been deceived. Together, they decided out of obedience to God to separate and break off their relationship. It’s still painful, even as Diane experiences God’s healing touch in the deepest parts of her wounded soul. He’s changing Diane and Carol from the inside out.

Two Claims for Change
Some people deal with same-sex attraction by pretending it’s not there. Denial is unfortunately the time-honored “Christian” response. But this is not the way God wants us to deal with problems; Psalm 51:6 says, “Surely you desire truth in my inmost parts.” Acknowledging one has a homosexual orientation is like seeing the red light on your car’s dashboard; it means something is wrong somewhere. A homosexual orientation isn’t the actual problem; it’s the symptom of a deeper issue–legitimate, God-given needs for relationship and intimacy that have been channeled in unhealthy and sinful directions.

But it is not a simple matter, and it would be disrespectful to imply that there is an easy solution to the complex issue of homosexuality. Among those who claim that change is possible, there are two main schools of thought on how to get there.

The first and most recommended treatment (within the Denominational religious system) for homosexuality is reparative therapy. There is a lot of wisdom to be found here because many therapists believe that homosexuality has its roots in hurtful relationship patterns, especially with family members, and many homosexual men and women report exactly that. But reparative therapy is often just behavior modification, and it deals only with the flesh, that part of us independent of God.
Reparative therapy can make people feel better, but it can’t bring true inner healing.

The second, and I believe best, way to bring about real and lasting change is a redemptive approach. Ministries that disciple men and women in intimate relationship with Jesus Christ are able to lead them into inner healing because God transforms His people. It’s excruciatingly difficult to leave homosexuality without support. Fortunately, even for people who do not live in an area where there is an Exodus referral ministry, there are online support forums that are almost as powerful as face-to-face groups. I especially recommend the one at http://www.livehope.org. There are also some wonderful books available, particularly Coming Out of Homosexuality by Bob Davies, and Someone I Love is Gay by Anita Worthen and Bob Davies. Another excellent book is You Don’t Have to Be Gay by Jeff Konrad. But discipleship is hard work, and there is no simple and easy fix.
- The Cross, the Gospel, and the Church

The Path to True Change
The most effective route to real, lasting change for those caught in same-gender attraction is a redemptive approach. This means discipleship, being taught and encouraged and held accountable to develop intimacy with Christ. Interestingly, it doesn’t seem to matter what the particular stronghold is in a person’s life–whether it be homosexuality, gluttony, drug dependency, compulsive gambling or shopping, alcoholism, sexual addiction, or any other stronghold–the most effective solution is the same: intimacy with Christ.

True discipleship is hard work. And God even gives us the energy for discipleship! But it takes tremendous self-discipline to choose to operate in the Spirit instead of in our own flesh, to depend on God’s strength instead of our own. The real battle is in the mind.
- The Call To Discipleship

The steps to overcoming homosexuality also apply to overcoming any stronghold.

First, the person has to stop the sinful behavior. It’s best to ask for God’s help. This is no different from the requirement for any drug or alcohol abuse treatment. You can’t work on a problem when you’re still totally controlled by it.

The second step is to work on learning what the Bible says about who you are in Christ. Just as people learning to identify counterfeit money examine real currency so they can spot the fakes, the struggler needs to fill his mind with God’s Word so he can enter into his true identity as a beloved, valuable child of God.

The third step is working on the thought life, since this is where the battle is. It’s important to identify Satan’s lies playing as tapes in one’s head, and stop the tape player! Then, deliberately replace the lies with the truth. Instead of “I’m never going to change,” repeat the truthful promise that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). Instead of obsessing over the aching and longing for the unhealthy and sinful behavior, fill your mind with praise and worship and Scripture.

Next, face the fact that it feels lousy! When we stop trying to meet our needs in our own ways, we start experiencing the emotional pain that our strongholds had covered up. When it feels really really bad, we are at that very point where God can make the biggest difference. Ask, “What is my true need? What is it my heart is truly longing for?” Go to Jesus and let Him meet your deepest heart-needs. Let Him direct you to get your divinely-designed needs for relationship with other people met in godly ways.

This is where powerful healing happens.

Ex-Ex-gays
For the last several years, people who had left homosexuality have slowly but surely gained a hearing in telling their stories. Word is getting out: change is possible!

And there are also the voices of the frustrated and disillusioned souls who tried to leave homosexuality, who tried to change, and gave up. There’s even a name for it: “Ex ex-gays.” Their stories are full of tremendous pain, and some have even lost their faith over it. What happened?

Well, I think the same thing that happened to people who tried AA but couldn’t stop drinking, or those who tried Weigh Down Workshop but couldn’t lose weight. I have a friend who was in Weigh Down Workshop, and it didn’t do a thing for her. The problem is, she never made the commitment to “die to self,” to use a Scriptural term{2}. She never got to the point of saying, “Jesus, I choose You over food. I choose a holy relationship with You over an unhealthy relationship with my appetite. And I will do whatever it takes to allow You to change my heart.”

Many people who tried to change their homosexuality could win contests for praying and reading their Bibles. They really did try very very hard. But the prayers are often misdirected: “God, change me. Take away my desires. Let me start liking people of the opposite sex.” Unfortunately, as well-intentioned as this prayer is, it’s a lot like trying to get rid of dandelions in your back yard by mowing them. They keep coming back because you’re not dealing with their roots. The basic cause of a homosexual orientation isn’t genetics or choice; it’s a wrong response to being hurt. It’s about protecting oneself and trying to get legitimate needs met in ways God never intended. True change can only happen with the hard work of submitting to God, allowing Him to expose the deep hurts and needs of one’s heart, which means facing horrible pain, and inviting Him to bring healing to those wounded places. That’s why intimacy with Christ is the answer. A wise friend observed that homosexuality is the fruit of sinful ways of dealing with pain–sinful because they cut us off from the One who can heal and meet our needs, sinful because they place us at the center of our universe and we don’t belong there. Jesus does.

I hope you can see that real change is hard and it costs a great deal because it requires strong motivation, hard work, and perseverance. But hundreds of former homosexuals have found a large degree of change, attaining abstinence from homosexual behaviors, lessening of homosexual temptations, strengthening their sense of masculine or feminine identity, correcting distorted styles of relating with members of the same and opposite gender. Some former homosexuals marry and some don’t, but marriage is not the measuring stick; spiritual growth and obedience are.

The bottom line is, change is possible.

Homosexual Myths

 

Author: Sue Bohlin

In this essay we’ll be looking at some of the homosexual myths that have pervaded our culture, and hopefully answering their arguments. Much of this material is taken from Joe Dallas’ excellent book, A Strong Delusion: Confronting the “Gay Christian” Movement.(1) While the information in this essay may prove helpful, it is our prayer that you will be able to share it calmly and compassionately, remembering that homosexuality isn’t just a political and moral issue; it is also about people who are badly hurting.

Hoax 1: 10% of the Population Is Homosexual.
In 1948, Dr. Alfred Kinsey released a study called Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, claiming that between 10 and 47% of the male population was homosexual.(2) He got his figures from a pool of 5,300 male subject that he represented as your average “Joe College” student. Many of the men who gave him the data, though, actually consisted of sex offenders, prisoners, pimps, hold-up men, thieves, male prostitutes and other criminals, and hundreds of gay activists.(3) The 10% figure was widely circulated by Harry Hay, the father of the homosexual “civil rights” movement, urging that homosexuality be seen no longer as an act of sodomy but as a 10% minority class.(4)

 

32630dralfredkinsey21

 

Kinsey’s figures were exposed as completely false immediately afterwards, and by many other scientists since. The actual figure is closer to 2-3%.(5) But the 10% number has been so often reported in the press that most people think it’s valid. It’s not.

Hoax 2: People Are Born Gay.
Ann Landers said it, and millions of people believe it. The problem is, the data’s not there to support it. There are three ways to test for inborn traits: twin studies, brain dissections, and gene “linkage” studies.(6) Twin studies show that something other than genetics must account for homosexuality, because nearly half of the identical twin studied didn’t have the same sexual preference. If homosexuality were inherited, identical twins should either be both straight or both gay. Besides, none of the twin studies have been replicated, and other twin studies have produced completely different results.(7) Dr. Simon LeVay’s famous study on the brains of dead subjects yielded questionable results regarding its accuracy. He wasn’t sure of the sexual orientation of the people in the study, and Dr. LeVay even admits he doesn’t know if the changes in the brain structures were the cause *of* homosexuality, or caused *by* homosexuality.(8) Finally, an early study attempting to show a link between homosexuality and the X- chromosome has yet to be replicated, and a second study actually contradicted the findings of the first.(9) Even if homosexuality were someday proven to be genetically related, *inborn* does not necessarily mean *normal*. Some children are born with cystic fibrosis, but that doesn’t make it a normal condition.

Inborn tendencies toward certain behaviors (such as homosexuality) do not make those behaviors moral. Tendencies toward alcoholism, obesity, and violence are now thought to be genetically influenced, but they are not good behaviors. People born with tendencies toward these behaviors have to fight hard against their natural temptations to drunkenness, gluttony, and physical rage.

And since we are born as sinners into a fallen world, we have to deal with the consequences of the Fall. Just because we’re born with something doesn’t mean it’s normal. It’s not true that “God makes some people gay.” All of us have effects of the Fall we need to deal with.

View an excellent in-depth article exposing the lie of “born gay” currently being propogated by the Homosexual Agenda: The Born Gay Hoax

Hoax 3: What’s Wrong with Two Loving, Committed Men or Women Being Legally Married?
There are two aspects to marriage: the legal and the spiritual. Marriage is more than a social convention, like being “best friends” with somebody, because heterosexual marriage usually results in the production of children. Marriage is a legal institution in order to offer protection for women and children. Women need to have the freedom to devote their time and energies to be the primary nurturers and caretakers of children without being forced to be breadwinners as well. God’s plan is that children grow up in families who provide for them, protect them, and wrap them in security.

Because gay or lesbian couples are by nature unable to reproduce, they do not need the legal protection of marriage to provide a safe place for the production and raising of children. Apart from the sexual aspect of a gay relationship, what they have is really “best friend” status, and that does not require legal protection.

 

gaymarriage3

 

Of course, a growing number of gay couples are seeking to have a child together, either by adoption, artificial insemination, or surrogate mothering. Despite the fact that they have to resort to an outside procedure in order to become parents, the presence of adults plus children in an ad hoc household should not automatically secure official recognition of their relationship as a family. There is a movement in our culture which seeks to redefine “family” any way we want, but with a profound lack of discernment about the long-term effects on the people involved. Gay parents are making a dangerous statement to their children: lesbian mothers are saying that fathers are not important, and homosexual fathers are saying that mothers are not important. More and more social observers see the importance of both fathers and mothers in children’s lives; one of their roles is to teach boys what it means to be a boy and teach girls what it means to be a girl.

The other aspect of marriage is of a spiritual nature. Granted, this response to the gay marriage argument won’t make any difference to people who are unconcerned about spiritual things, but there are a lot of gays who care very deeply about God and long for a relationship with Him. The marriage relationship, both its emotional and especially its sexual components, is designed to serve as an earthbound illustration of the relationship between Christ and His bride, the church.(10) Just as there is a mystical oneness between a man and a woman, who are very different from each other, so there is a mystical unity between two very different, very “other” beings–the eternal Son of God and us mortal, creaturely humans. Marriage as God designed it is like the almost improbable union of butterfly and buffalo, or fire and water. But homosexual relationships are the coming together of two like individuals; the dynamic of unity and diversity in heterosexual marriage is completely missing, and therefore so is the spiritual dimension that is so intrinsic to the purpose of marriage. Both on an emotional and a physical level, the sameness of male and male, or female and female, demonstrates that homosexual relationships do not reflect the spiritual parable that marriage is meant to be. God wants marriage partners to complement, not to mirror, each other. The concept of gay marriage doesn’t work, whether we look at it on a social level or a spiritual one.

Hoax 4: Jesus Said Nothing about Homosexuality.
Whether from a pulpit or at a gay rights event, gay activists like to point out that Jesus never addressed the issue of homosexuality; instead, He was more interested in love. Their point is that if Jesus didn’t specifically forbid a behavior, then who are we to judge those who engage in it?

This argument assumes that the Gospels are more important than the rest of the books in the New Testament, that only the recorded sayings of Jesus matter. But John’s gospel itself assures us that it is not an exhaustive record of all that Jesus said and did, which means there was a lot left out!(11) The gospels don’t record that Jesus condemned wife-beating or incest; does that make them OK? Furthermore, the remaining books of the New Testament are no less authoritative than the gospels. All scripture is inspired by God, not just the books with red letters in the text. Specific prohibitions against homosexual behavior in Romans 1:26-27 and 1 Corinthians 6:9,10 are every bit as God-ordained as what is recorded in the gospels.

We do know, however, that Jesus spoke in specific terms about God’s created intent for human sexuality: “From the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; and the two shall be one flesh. . . What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder” (Matthew 19:4-6). God’s plan is holy heterosexuality, and Jesus spelled it out.

Hoax 5: The Levitical laws against homosexual behavior are not valid today.
Leviticus 18:22 says, “Thou shalt not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; it is an abomination.” Gay theologians argue that the term “abomination” is generally associated with idolatry and the Canaanite religious practice of cult prostitution, and thus God did not prohibit the kind of homosexuality we see today.

Other sexual sins such as adultery and incest are also prohibited in the same chapters where the prohibitions against homosexuality are found. All sexual sin is forbidden by both Old and New Testament, completely apart from the Levitical codes, because it is a moral issue. It is true that we are not bound by the rules and rituals in Leviticus that marked Yahweh’s people by their separation from the world; however, the nature of sexual sin has not changed because immorality is an affront to the holiness and purity of God Himself. Just because most of Leviticus doesn’t apply to Christians today doesn’t mean none of it does.

The argument that the word “abomination” is connected with idolatry is well answered by examining Proverbs 6:16-19, which describes what else the Lord considers abominations: a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises evil imaginations, feet that are swift in running to mischief, a false witness that speaks lies, and a man who sows discord among brothers. Idolatry plays no part in these abominations. The argument doesn’t hold water.

If the practices in Leviticus 18 and 20 are condemned because of their association with idolatry, then it logically follows that they would be permissible if they were committed apart from idolatry. That would mean incest, adultery, bestiality, and child sacrifice (all of which are listed in these chapters) are only condemned when associated with idolatry; otherwise, they are allowable. No responsible reader of these passages would agree with such a premise.(12)

Hoax 6: Calling Homosexuality a Sin Is Judging, and Judging Is a Sin.
Josh McDowell says that the most often-quoted Bible verse used to be John 3:16, but now that tolerance has become the ultimate virtue, the verse we hear quoted the most is “Judge not, lest ye be judged.” (Matthew 7:1) The person who calls homosexual activity wrong is called a bigot and a homophobe, and even those who don’t believe in the Bible can be heard to quote the “Judge not” verse.
- They Call Us ‘Haters’

When Jesus said “Do not judge, or you too will be judged,” the context makes it plain that He was talking about setting ourselves up as judge of another person, while blind to our own sinfulness as we point out another’s sin. There’s no doubt about it, there is a grievous amount of self-righteousness in the way the church treats those struggling with the temptations of homosexual longings. But there is a difference between agreeing with the standard of Scripture when it declares homosexuality wrong, and personally condemning an individual because of his sin. Agreeing with God about something isn’t necessarily judging.
[InPlainSite.org Note: Contrary to popular beliefs the Bible makes some very straight forward statements about ‘judging’. See "Judge Not"]

Imagine I’m speeding down the highway, and I get pulled over by a police officer. He approaches my car and, after checking my license and registration, he says, “You broke the speed limit back there, ma’am.” Can you imagine a citizen indignantly leveling a politically correct charge at the officer: “Hey, you’re judging me! Judge not, lest ye be judged!'” The policeman is simply pointing out that I broke the law. He’s not judging my character, he’s comparing my behavior to the standard of the law. It’s not judging when we restate what God has said about His moral law, either. What is sin is to look down our noses at someone who falls into a different sin than we do. That’s judging.

Hoax 7: The Romans 1 Passage on Homosexuality Does Not Describe True Homosexuals, but Heterosexuals Who Indulge in Homosexual
Behavior That Is Not Natural to Them.

Romans 1:26-27 says, “God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.” Some gay theologians try to get around the clear prohibition against both gay and lesbian homosexuality by explaining that the real sin Paul is talking about here is straight people who indulge in homosexual acts, because it’s not natural to them. Homosexuality, they maintain, is not a sin for true homosexuals.

But there is nothing in this passage that suggests a distinction between “true” homosexuals and “false” ones. Paul describes the homosexual behavior itself as unnatural, regardless of who commits it. In fact, he chooses unusual words for men and women, Greek words that most emphasize the biology of being a male and a female. The behavior described in this passage is unnatural for males and females; sexual orientation isn’t the issue at all. He is saying that homosexuality is biologically unnatural; not just unnatural to heterosexuals, but unnatural to anyone.

Furthermore, Romans 1 describes men “inflamed with lust” for one another. This would hardly seem to indicate men who were straight by nature but experimenting with gay sex.(13) You really have to do some mental gymnastics to make Romans 1 anything other than what a plain reading leads us to understand all homosexual activity is sin.

Hoax 8: Preaching Against Homosexuality Causes Gay Teenagers to Commit Suicide.
I received an e-mail from someone who assured me that the blood of gay teenagers was on my hands because saying that homosexuality is wrong makes people kill themselves. The belief that gay teenagers are at high risk for suicide is largely inspired by a 1989 report by a special federal task force on youth and suicide. This report stated three things; first, that gay and lesbian youths account for one third of all teenage suicides; second, that suicide is the leading cause of death among gay teenagers, and third, gay teens who commit suicide do so because of “internalized homophobia” and violence directed at them.(14) This report has been cited over and over in both gay and mainstream publications.
[View Orthodoxy Today article exposing the deception inherent in Paul Gibson's report HERE.]

San Francisco gay activist Paul Gibson wrote this report based on research so shoddy that when it was submitted to Dr. Louis Sullivan, the former Secretary of Health and Human Services, Dr. Sullivan officially distanced himself and his department from it.(15) The report’s numbers, both its data and its conclusions, are extremely questionable. Part of the report cites an author claiming that as many as 3,000 gay youths kill themselves each year. But that’s over a thousand more than the total number of teen suicides in the first place! Gibson exaggerated his numbers when he said that one third of all teen suicides are committed by gay youth. He got this figure by looking at gay surveys taken at drop-in centers for troubled teens, many of which were gay-oriented, which revealed that gay teens had two to four times the suicidal tendencies of straight kids. Gibson multiplied this higher figure by the disputed Kinsey figure of a 10% homosexual population to produce his figure that 30% of all youth suicides are gay. David Shaffer, a Columbia University psychiatrist who specializes in teen suicides, pored over this study and said, “I struggled for a long time over Gibson’s mathematics, but in the end, it seemed more hocus-pocus than math.”(15)
[View Touchstone Magazine article discussing homosexuality and teen suicide HERE.]

The report’s conclusions are contradicted by other, more credible reports. Researchers at the University of California-San Diego interviewed the survivors of 283 suicides for a 1986 study. 133 of those who died were under 30, and only 7 percent were gay and they were all over 21. In another study at Columbia University of 107 teenage boy suicides, only three were known to be gay, and two of those died in a suicide pact. When the Gallup organization interviewed almost 700 teenagers who knew a teen who had committed suicide, not one mentioned sexuality as part of the problem. Those who had come close to killing themselves mainly cited boy-girl problems or low self-esteem.(17)

Gibson didn’t use a heterosexual control group in his study. Conclusions and statistics are bound to be skewed without a control group. When psychiatrist David Shaffer examined the case histories of the gay teens who committed suicides in Gibson’s report, he found the same issues that straight kids wrestle with before suicide: “The stories were the same: a court appearance scheduled for the day of the death; prolonged depression; drug and alcohol problems; etc.”(18)

Dr. David Shaffer


That any teenager experiences so much pain that he takes his life is a tragedy, regardless of the reason. But it’s not fair to lay the responsibility for gay suicides, the few that there are, on those who agree with God that it’s wrong and harmful behavior.

Is Homosexuality A Sin (and who do we believe)?

09/01/2014
Is homosexuality a sin? And who do we believe?


God is the ultimate and sovereign judge for sin. Homosexuality is sin by His order; it is not decided by public opinion or deceived/false clergy. Changing societies do not dictate God’s standards. Sin is defined by God for us in the Bible. It is the source for what God says is holy and righteous or sin and abomination. Hebrews 13:8 states that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever; he does not “go with the flow.”
- Praying for Richmond, VA and the Greater Richmond Area

God’s Word says that homosexuality is unnatural, a perversion, an abomination, fornication, vile affections, and a great sin against Him. He states any sexual act outside of marriage is adultery (hetro- or homo- sexual). Sex is to be between man and woman within marriage.

 

Faggots Unleashed!
Homosexuality = Rebellion and Self-Deception

 

Is homosexuality a sin? What does this mean?
God’s design for natural sexual relationships is part of His plan. Homosexuality falsifies what God designed. Sin often means not only rejecting God but denying or rejecting how and why we are made. Though it may be considered acceptable by some today — even in some churches — it is not acceptable to God. And we need to take that seriously.

Sexual sins were rampant in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. (This is the origin of the word sodomy.) Despite warnings, they refused to repent. God destroyed those cities and it was recorded as a warning to all future generations. (Genesis 18:20-21, Genesis 19:4-5, 2 Peter 2:6) Some additional scriptures on homosexuality are found in:

Leviticus 18:22
Leviticus 20:13
Romans 1:26-27

The price paid for homosexuality and other fornications are told in:

1 Corinthians 6:9-10
Jude 6-7
Romans 1:18

In spite of the growing secular humanist trend to think “it’s ok to be gay,” it’s not a righteous lifestyle. Most vocal Christians are not homophobic, but are trying to share Christ’s love for homosexuals and trying to keep them from horrific judgment.

Is homosexuality a sin? Is there hope for forgiveness?
There absolutely is hope for homosexuals. God can cleanse and purify all persons from sin. As many scriptures as there are that address sin, there are more that speak of forgiveness and redemption. He is able to give deliverance to any who sincerely desire true freedom and salvation. Such is demonstrated in 1 Corinthians 6:11: “And such were some of you: but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” This verse says “some of you were,” meaning they became past acts.

We are offered the empowering Spirit of God to help us turn from our sins. Coming out of drug addiction, homosexuality, or other sin isn’t always easy but God will provide the way. Christians are to “love” into the kingdom, those who desire repentance and to live by His natural plan.

Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of our sins and rose again the third day. He desires that we repent and be forgiven of our sins by coming into a personal relationship with Him.

Has Obama Sold Out “His” People?

HAS OBAMA SOLD OUT “HIS” PEOPLE?

 

Coach_Dave_Daubenmire

Author: Coach Dave Daubenmire
Source: NewsWithViews.com – 07.17.2014

Be sure to forward this commentary to everybody you know who voted for Obama. Especially if they are black. Especially if they are burdened by white guilt. Especially if they think that Obama cares about “regular” people. Especially if they think he gives a rip about poor black kids. Especially if they think he wants to bring healing and equality to the races. Especially if they are Christians. Especially if they think he is one of them.

That should cover most of the idiots.

But you probably won’t forward it…afraid of being called a racist and all. But we need to ask ourselves a very poignant question. The answer will make a lot of things easier to discern.

Who does OBAMA consider “his” people?

I wrote about this a few years ago. Let me take a moment and refresh your memory of some of the facts.

Barack Obama is not “African” American…at least not racially. His skin may be dark, but there are many people around the world who have dark skin and are not Africans. Although his lineage is murky at best and many question the “official” story regarding his organic origination, let’s give him the benefit of the doubt and believe the nativity story that we’ve been given.

Barack Obama Sr., his alleged father, was born in Kenya. He was of Arab descent…not African. To call him “African” is nothing more than associating all black faces with the continent of Africa. Hussein is an Arab name…not African. Barack Hussein Obama Sr. was Arab, not African. His son could rightly be called the first Arab-American President. But that wouldn’t fit the script. Black Americans would not relate to an Arab-American.

Here is a list of Arab-Americans. Do you consider Kasey Kasem and Paul Anka to be Africans? How about Paula Abdul or Doug Flutie? Their lineage is the same as Barack Obama Sr.

So…Barack Hussein Obama Sr’s son is 50% white, 43% Arab, and 7% black. He is certainly not an African-American. They sold him to America as African-America which further shows how deceptive trusting in skin color can be.

Do you suppose Revs Al and Jesse knew he was Arab? Are they so stupid they don’t know the difference between an Arab and an African? I wonder if they know the difference between a Muslim and a Christian. It looks like skin color is a poor determinant of what someone is…or believes.

So, Obama is a fake-African just like he is a fake-Christian. Funny, isn’t it? Blacks can’t tell the difference between an Arab and an African, and Christians can’t tell the difference between a follower of Jesus and a follower of Satan. That’s the bottom line. You can’t be and Arab and an African and you can’t be a follower of Jesus and the Devil. Skin color is not a good indicator.

So now the “African” Americans are starting to catch on that their “brother” by-skin-color-only is selling them out. Check out this brief 2-minute video:

He may have the same skin color but he is not one of them. Arab-American Obama is not their African “brother.”

How has he been able to pull off such a scam? Why won’t the media tell the truth? Why won’t our elected officials tell the truth? Why won’t the “civil rights” leaders tell the truth? Why won’t our “Christian” leaders tell us the truth?

Well here are a few that will. Pastor James David Manning of Atlah World Ministries in Harlem, writer and truth-teller Mychal Massie of The Daily Rant, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson of B.O.N.D. and many others I could suggest. Why won’t Faux News give them a platform? Why do they constantly feed us the liberal views of weenie Juan Williams? They decide…you report what they decided.

Perhaps those in power understand what the little people don’t; Obama is one of THEM. He is an elitist…part of the ruling class…the government class. He hasn’t sold out “his” people because “his” people aren’t who we thought they were. HE knows who “his” people are and he is serving them quite well.

Both political parties want to keep us divided. Democrats want to keep blacks on their plantation while Republicans are afraid to speak the truth. Why do both parties feed us Jesse Jackson as the spokesman for black Americans?
- Black History Month and the Republican Legacy

Here is the truth; Democrats want poor people dependent on government. They trap young black-skinned children in rotten government schools because they do not want to throw the teachers’ unions out of the bed they share.

They trap inner-city residents into bondage to food-stamps and government handouts as they claim to care. Cliven Bundy was right; they have traded one form of slavery for another. Look at the evidence. Blacks used to live as families. Today, government dependency has caused them to trade the father as the family head for the prison of government provision.
- Back On the Plantation

So, all of the great hopes that black America had for the first “African” President have come to a crashing halt. They are slow to admit the truth. Obama couldn’t care less about the plight of “his” people because they aren’t “his” people. “His” people are rich limousine liberals who profit from keeping blacks on the plantation. Neither Obama nor his children have spent one second in black inner-city schools. They are children of privilege and beneficiaries of white guilt.

Obama can blame the Republicans all he wants. He can fan the flames of racism and division in attempt to keep us divided. He can make promise after lying promise with no plans to deliver. Ultimately, here is a simple question for my black friends and white friends who believe skin color is more important than the content of one’s character.

Why has he done so little to help “his” people? Could it be we don’t realize who he considers “his” people?

He is not one of them. He is Arab, not African. He grew up in a white environment not in the inner city. For 25 years he was a member of a hate America church not a Christian church. He went to a private Muslim school not a private Christian school. He never spent the first day in a “black” environment. Everything about him is a fraud.

So now you are surprised when he turns his heart to the Hispanics? Remove our borders, remove our language and we have lost our culture. Obama was never one of us. Why should we be surprised? “His” people want to destroy America.

Diversity can be deadly. Flooding the borders with disease-carrying refugees is the best way to serve “his” people. Diluting the culture will weaken America. A nation without a common language, border, or culture, is no country at all.

Obama knows who “his” people are. How come we don’t?

A new untruth is better than an old truth.
– Justice O.W. Holmes

Children who know how to think for themselves spoil the harmony of the collective society which is coming where everyone is interdependent.
– John Dewey

 

dunce_cap

 

Conservative intellectual Dr. Thomas Sowell, in a recent column, “Teaching Americans to hate their country,’” made the historical observation about how 100 years ago progressives like John Dewey of Columbia University changed the American education paradigm whereby teachers were no longer considered “the transmitter of society’s culture” (as they have been for roughly the past 6,000 years) but activist “agents of [progressive, socialist] change,” as evidenced by the way most Americans have been happily educated inside its Marxist propaganda factories called “public schools.”

Who was John Dewey?

John Dewey (1859-1952) was the father of the modern American public school system, a leading progressive who promoted the philosophy of pragmatism and an activist for secular humanism in American society. Dewey was also an original signatory of the “Humanist Manifesto” and ridiculed moral absolutes and traditional religion, especially Christianity in favor of an evolution/atheist worldview.
- American Decay: John Dewey

Dewey’s major works on education include: “My Pedagogic Creed” (1897), “The School and Society” (1900), “The Child and the Curriculum” (1902), “Democracy and Education” (1916) and “Experience and Education” (1938). Dewey believed that education history, philosophy, law, politics, economics, society were in a constant state of flux; therefore, these and other areas of study should not just produce a static product that told what had already happened, but history, information would be in a constant state of evolution as the public added value by generating knowledge. Dewey, with a fanatical zeal, promoted the singular idea of education atheism while permeating a Marxist socialist worldview into America’s public school system, leading to the deconstruction of Christian influence in politics, education, law, culture and society that exists to this day.

‘Teaching Americans to hate their country’

Like the communist of the Chinese Revolution (1946-52), Sowell views America’s educators as playing a similar role in creating a mindset that undermines American society by promoting a Darwinian education atheism worldview. In the early 1900s, progressives like Dewey, Charles William Eliot (president of Harvard), Charles Peirce, William James, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Margaret Sanger, W.E.B. Dubois, Havelock Ellis, Rexford Tugwell, Bertrand Russell, F.M. Alexander, Henri Bergson, William M. Brown, Martin Buber, George S. Counts, William Rainey Harper, Sidney Hook and even Supreme Court justices like Oliver Wendell Holmes and Brandeis rejected the original intent of the constitutional framers and the Judeo-Christian traditions that undergirded this great country, viewing instead America as set to lead the world into a golden age of humanism – a socialist utopia.

However, before this could occur, its people must be re-educated to abandon the old, dead Judeo-Christian traditions; discard its “dead” Constitution and replace it with a progressive, evolved philosophy governed by a constantly evolving “living Constitution.” In other words, Sowell wrote that Dewey and progressives were “strategically placed, with an opportunity to condition students to want a different kind of society” based on Darwinian evolution, Marxism and humanism.
- Unlearn the Propaganda!

How did Dewey and his progressive legions achieve this paradigm shift? It was easy. Remember the words of Lenin who said, “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted” and Machiavelli’s “The end justifies the means.” Progressives followed these and other diabolical tactics for more than 150 years while rewriting history by flooding the curriculum with Marxist textbooks like Howard Zinn’s “A People’s History of the United States,” which, according to Sowell, promotes a “history that emphasizes everything that has gone bad, or can be made to look bad, in America – and that gives little, if any, attention to the great achievements of this country.”

For decades, Marxist historians like Zinn have dominated the Academy and, because they are free from the chains of realism and truth, can weave fantastical tales, feckless propaganda and diabolical lies whereby progressive and socialist historians “single out Western civilization for special condemnation for sins that have been common to the human race, in all parts of the world, for thousands of years. Meanwhile, all sorts of fictitious virtues are attributed to non-Western societies, and their worst crimes are often passed over in silence, or at least shrugged off by saying some such thing as ‘Who are we to judge?’” says Sowell.

French history between the wars: Anti-history as history

To demonstrate how short of a time one generation can become conditioned to forget its own recent history using Dewey’s education atheism, Sowell cites the example of France between the two great wars:

In France between the two World Wars, the teachers’ union decided that schools should replace patriotism with internationalism and pacifism. Books that told the story of the heroic defense of French soldiers against the German invaders at Verdun in 1916, despite suffering massive casualties, were replaced by books that spoke impartially about the suffering of all soldiers – both French and German – at Verdun.

Germany invaded France again in 1940, and this time the world was shocked when the French surrendered after just 6 weeks of fighting – especially since military experts expected France to win. But two decades of undermining French patriotism and morale had done their work.

Dewey’s pragmatism and education atheism proclaims an aggressive evolutionary philosophy in public education, including natural selection, survival of the fittest and a social Darwinism approach to education while defending the view that things understood as isolated from any relationship with the human organism could not be objects of knowledge at all. This collectivist, socialist idea essentially entrenched the atheist ideas of social Darwinism and Marxism into the public education system, which President Obama and the Democratic Socialist Party, through their allies in the National Education Association and the leftist Academy, continue to promote on an even grander scale in modern times.

Where the Black Flags Fly

 

Author: Daniel Greenfield
Source: the Sultan Knish blog – 08.25.2014

Media conveys immediacy, but it doesn’t convey culture. Its famous flattening effect makes shoppers at a Staples in D.C. or a Whole Foods in Berkeley feel like they’re right among the toppled buildings of Aleppo or Gaza, without actually giving them any insight into the motivations of the players.

They’re watching foreign movies in a language that they don’t understand and attributing their own motivations to the main characters. They assume that the differences are incidental, but if the differences really were incidental, America would look a lot more like Iraq.

isis-truck-convoy-anbar-province

It’s been a while since Westerners lived in a society in which human life was truly worthless, in which no one trusted anyone else and it was easier to kill than not to kill.

Outside of a few urban centers in the Middle East where the elites start the revolutions that end up stringing them from the gallows, life is cheap and worthless. Men kill their wives and daughters over petty suspicions. Clans murder each other in vicious brawls. Wedding celebrations begin with firing guns into the air and end with bodies on the ground.

Everything is worth more than people. A camel has value. A pickup truck has value. A smartphone has value. All these things are hard to make.

People are easy to make.

The birth rates are high. Everywhere there are too many people. Too many sons to inherit. Too many daughters to marry off.

The UN and a whole bunch of international organizations slop in enough aid to keep hunger and disease away, but not enough to make life livable or worthwhile. The wealthy have satellite dishes on which they watch American reality shows and Turkish soaps. The poor kidnap them and hold them for ransom. It’s not just life in the Middle East. It’s the whole Third World experience.

About the only reliable source of wealth comes out of the ground and the countries that have it are usually too lazy to get it themselves. That’s what the armies of Western engineers are for. They don’t build their own skyscrapers with the oil money. That’s what the disposable Asian workers are for.

Killing is the easiest solution to most problems. Men kill over honor. Women kill themselves out of desperation. Children grow up torturing animals.

Clerics settle religious questions with murder. It’s just easier that way.

Theological debates are complicated and impossible to settle, but fly the black flags, seize a village, kill the men and force the women to convert to the true faith of the machine gun and the sword and the debate is over.

ISIS is how Islam has been settling questions of theology since the 7th century. Why stop now just because you can order takeout from your smartphone? Westerners are innately fascinated by new technology. For the Middle East, technology is a tool for settling medieval disputes. Twitter is just a way of showing off your latest crop of severed heads. The pickup truck substitutes for a camel.

Politicians settle political debates with more murders. Elections are complicated. Democracy is messy. It’s easier for a colonel to take everyone out back and shoot them. And then spend the next twenty years building palaces with his people’s wealth. And the people mostly like it that way too.

ISIS-flag

The question isn’t why should they kill, it’s why should they stop? The peace proposals never get anywhere. If you reward violence with concessions, there’s no reason for it to ever stop. And if you don’t, what else is there to do?

When life is worthless, everyone has a gun and a grudge, it’s easier to kill than not to kill. You can see that phenomenon as readily in Chicago as in Iraq. Why not shoot the guy next door because he owes you money, because your daughter looked at him twice, because he’s on your turf or because he’s a Kurd.

Or because it’s Thursday.

Under crowded conditions, life is cheap but honor is expensive. Fights start over the pettiest things and escalate into relentless violence. You can see it in Yemen or in Ferguson. Everyone is just waiting for an excuse to be angry about something and to take it out on someone else.

The Western Urbanites who helicopter parent their 2.5 children into a Prozac prescription and lament their disposable society don’t understand what a truly disposable society looks like even though they probably live less than a mile away from one of those.

In a disposable society, people have no value. Children have no value. Human labor has no value. If you want something done, you force someone to do it. If you can’t have your own slaves, you can control an extended family. You don’t think in terms of what it costs to make something. The only cost that matters is the cost of imports. Everything else is inhumanely cheap.

Emotional reactions always trump rational ones. Everyone feels put upon and slighted from the biggest prince to the lowliest laborer. Everyone is filled with resentments that they channel through the Koran and the mad preachings of Islamic clerics promising holy wars and blaming everything on the CIA, the Freemasons and the Jews.

When it gets hot enough, the killings begin and they usually don’t stop until the weather cools down. The black flags fly. The yellow flags fly. The green flags fly. And you can either play the game or get beheaded on the evening news.

Maybe both.

There’s no morality out here. The men are careful not to look at a donkey or a woman while praying to Allah. But they have no sense of ethics. They will casually kill, steal, rape, break oaths and a commit a hundred other crimes before breakfast.

If you’re not a member of their family, you’re fair game. If you are, you had better know your place and help with the stealing, kidnapping and assorted economic empowerment projects.

Killing is easy. Self-control is hard. If there’s no accountability, no local bigshot that wants infidel tourists and their dollars and will make the killer’s family suffer, then he has no reason not to beat you, steal from you or drag you into a home in some slum somewhere and wait for the fabled wealthy infidels to pay him a king’s ransom.

If not he always cut off your head to raise the price on the next one.

rtx170ru-1

His life is cheap, but yours is even cheaper.

It’s best to understand that we are not dealing with a moral code that looks anything like our own. The nastier qualities of human nature, deceit, violence and greed, are practically virtues. Especially if they are directed at the right targets.

There’s a reason that Islam was born here. There’s a reason that it still thrives here largely in its unaltered form. There is no civilization where the black flags fly.

Warnings of a coming apocalypse

 

Former CIA chief retired General Michael Hayden told CNN that the Islamic State (IS) will attempt an attack on targets in the US or Europe. He said of the recent beheading of journalist James Foley “There’s no more powerful way to express their street credentials among the jihadist community than a successful attack against the West.” Retired Air Force Lt. General Thomas McInerney said the IS may attack the US “and they will be here maybe this 9/11.” Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says that the IS “is beyond anything we have seen.” The federal government has issued a warning to local law enforcement that IS could attack US targets as over 100 jihadists are known to have left the US to fight for the IS.

There are many reports from various news sources around the world about the savagery of IS fighters as they conquer villages in Iraq, beheading, mass killing, and crucifying those men, women and children who they suspect do not agree with the IS Caliphate ideology. Quite frankly, this is the Middle East the occupant of the Oval Office has created. His support of the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda (remember who claimed credit for 9/11?) against various governments in Northern Africa and the Middle East, and his direct support for what became the Islamic State, has supplied military know-how, weapons and tactics to birth the most powerful religious-military-economic force Hagel has ever seen.

Various generals are now warning of attacks on American soil–of which this “president” has refused to secure the borders, allowing militants into the nation with impunity. These generals and various politicians are pointing out the obvious–that an attack is imminent. They say the solution is to attack IS in Iraq, and seem to be beating the drums of fear to garner public support for yet another war. It does appear that the US is set up well for the “president’s” destructive foreign policy pigeons to come home to roost. He has elevated Islam at the expense of America and everyone is warning of the consequences–an attack on American soil. They wring their hands and wail about it as if nothing can be done.

Biblically, there is much to happen before the Apocalypse, but this “president” has accelerated the times. This “president” appears to love Islam and is doing all to advance it. When his beasts attack our malls and schools, will we awake from our slumber? And what of us? Are we beginning to see the collective consequences of choosing evil to lead? This is not the Apocalypse, but it is in the future. In response, I am reminded of 2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” Ephesians 6:13, “Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” There will be a time to stand and it may be soon coming.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
