The Plight of the Homosexual
Ok, I know I'm about to make a lot of people mad with this one...but so be it. And here we go...
I just got done reading a report about the House voting to end the ban on gays in the military by repealing the "don't ask, don't tell" law, and after this being the umpteenth year of hearing about the "homosexual plight" I have to say that I am really tired of hearing about all of the endless news reports about how the LGBT community is rallying for this right or rallying for that right because they feel that they should be recognized by the federal government for everything that everybody else gets. Well, if that's the case then maybe thieves, murderers and drug addicts should be rallying for their rights as well. I mean, it's all relative right?
People, it's time to start calling a spade a spade. Homosexuality is wrong and it's not wrong because I said it's wrong, it's wrong because God said it was wrong just like He said killing, stealing and lying were wrong. The foundation of the United States was based on the principals of God's Word (the Bible) and that's just what it is. No ifs, ands or buts about it. Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for that very thing! So to constantly see people rallying for gay rights is a farce, and a slap in the face to the Biblical principals that this country was founded upon.
It would be laughable to see crack heads marching in front of the White House rallying for the right to indulge in the act of shooting up whenever the mood hits, so why is it ok to rally for national acceptance of sexual immorality? Think about it. Yes, what people do behind closed doors is ultimately between them and God and it's not for anyone else to judge another on how they choose to live their life, but when you cross that threshold of living out your personal choices to trying to push those choices on the masses that is a whole different story.
A person choosing to be gay is between them and God just like a person choosing to be a thief is between that person and God, but make no mistake, wrong is wrong and everyone will be judged accordingly. So for the church and government to try to keep making amends to appease everything and everyone, it only stands to lead to the total downfall of everything noble that this country was built upon.
Let me be clear, I am not bashing gay people. I believe that gay people struggle with a spiritual matter and should be prayed for. I have people in my life who I love very much who struggle with homosexuality, but while I do not judge them I do not support their lifestyle, and I continue to lift them up in prayer as we agree to disagree. It's not about personal choice, it's about the difference between right and wrong.
So at the end of the day, "don't ask, don't tell" should not be repealed because wrong is wrong and it shouldn't be worn as a badge of honor. It's time to get back to standing for something and stop trying to be "politically" correct all the time. After all, if you look over the last few decades, where has "political correctness" gotten us?
Now that the ACLU has been able to get God all but taken out of the schools, more murders among young people have taken place. Now that the push for separation of God and state has been pushed to the limit, the American government is slowly but surely becoming weaker and weaker in it's ranking among the other national powers as our economy slowly crumbles.
The end of this story has already been written, so it's important that we recognize the sign of the times for what they are. Just read Revelations. But while the outcome is already known, we still need to be about the business of building God's kingdom and spreading His Word, and His word says that homosexuality is wrong. Plain and simple.
Some words are hard to say, and some are even harder to hear but from my heart to your ears they are always spoken in love.
