Gays and Straights
"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet," said Juliet in Shakespeare's famous work, Romeo and Juliet. The playwright makes the point that just changing the name of something doesn't change what it actually is. Read more
As a recovering homosexual, I know the Bible condemns the practice of homosexuality. I've written about it thoroughly in God and the Gays and speak of it in my YouTube video God and Gays.
I also know, unlike your article would mislead folks to believe, that HIV/AIDS first began among the heterosexual community in Africa but spread like wildfire first among the homosexual community in the United States. HIV/AIDS continues to spread like wildfire among heterosexuals in Africa, among prostitutes and drug addicts predominantly.
It also needs to be stated that HIV/AIDS includes 26 or so diseases they've all lumped in together that Africans have been dying from for years, for political purposes, to extort aid money, to support the PIC (pharmaceutical industrial complex). For the record, I am an American living with AIDS and I reject the highly toxic medicines. I've written two articles about it:
Scarlet Letter: A Christian With AIDS
Does God Heal Today?
When we consider all of the sexual diseases prevalent among the heterosexual community, besides within the homosexual community, it is enough to scare you CELIBATE (not straight).
"But, many of the advocates of this way of life are aggressively pressing forward with an agenda of forcing acceptance by the government on national, state and local levels. They strive to equate homosexuality with civil rights." - Sounds like you're talking about abortion.
"Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
For this reason God gave them up to vile passions."
Although Paul was referring to reprobate Roman Empire homosexuals, the same thing can be said about heterosexual perverts who consider their abominations "normal." Do they like to retain God in their knowledge any more than practicing homosexuals? Do they care for what God's Word says about their sex life any more than homosexuals? NO!
The worst "homosexuals" are spiritual perverts, abominable Christians, who prefer idolatrous traditions of men over the holy commandments of God, as brought out in the YouTube video Drunks and Whores.
May God bless all, regardless of sexual orientation and temptation, to return to Him and learn to think like Him , in preparation for His Kingdom that transcends the flesh (Isaiah 55:7-9).
