Gay kiss sparks outrage

Lots to discuss here.

Homosexual kiss at school assembly prompts student walk-out, parental fury
"Members of the football team stomped out of a Hartford, Connecticut, high school assembly when a pro-homosexual advocacy play featured two boys kissing on stage. When the actors locked lips, reports Vanessa de la Torre for the Hartford Courant newspaper, “a piercing clamor rang through the auditorium. “There were screams and loud voices and a bit of feigned or real disgust. Dozens of students, mostly male and a few in their Owls football jerseys, hurried out of their rows and walked out. A few jumped over seats to leave.”

The play was a fantasy portraying the world as entirely homosexual, and the few heterosexuals that existed were in the closet, ashamed of their non-gayness. Of course, we know satan's agenda is to aim for exactly that. He comes to destroy the family to destroy the purity of marital sexual unions between the God-ordained one woman-one man inside of a marriage that God outlined for us. His agenda is to introduce perversity in all arenas and to saturate the culture with anything sexual goes.

It was good to see that there was a furor over the perverted display of males kissing in an auditorium where impressionable youth were attending. It was even nicer to see that it was in a school in New England, and not even the bible belt. The comment that 'all the play was trying to do was instill a sense of empathy toward gays and lesbians," was replied to by the principal that "our kids are not there yet." Well, good.

While we have empathy for gays who are in sin as we do for any person caught in sin, we do not celebrate sin. We do not accord it a normalcy. We do not allow it to pass without comment. And when it occurs in the church, any sin, any church, it defiles the church. Immorality in a church must be judged. (1 Corinthians 5:1-12) while immorality outside of the church will be judged by Jesus.

I listened to the trailer for the documentary "Agenda: Grinding America Down" and in it the statement was made that in just 40 years we have gone from Norman Rockwell's America to Hugh Hefner's America. So true. Within one generation the nation's morals have completely swapped, and who is to blame for that? Not the president, not the government's policies, not the parents so much, but satan. We fight not against the president. We fight not against the politicians' policies. We fight not against parents or leaders or bosses. We fight against powers and principalities and spiritual rulers of the heavenly realms (Eph 6:12). Satan knows what God expects and as a result he does the opposite. (John 10:10). Look how much we have let him.

Jesus mused to the Disciples that just prior to His Second Coming "will the Son of Man find faith upon the earth?" (Luke 18:8). Of course He knew the answer: the answer was no, not so much faith at all.  He said as a matter of fact, that it will be as it was in the Days of Lot. (Luke 17:28-29). So, what were the Days of Lot like?

Lot was Abraham's nephew who decided to go live near Sodom, (Gen 13:10-13) the worst city there ever was or ever will be, except for Babylon. Sodom and Gomorrah's depravity had reached such a level that there was an outcry against the cities and their sin was a very grave. (Gen 18:20). The angels that had 'come down' to see what the outcry was about and to judge the cities. However all the men of the city, from every quarter, surrounded the house, demanding that Lot present the "men" (angels) so that they could be raped. The perverted lust was very real and had turned the men into a mob, with violent rape threats made against Lot when Lot refused(Gen 19:4-5) The door was bulging with the pressure of the men trying to get at the fresh meat of new men to rape. (Gen 19:9).

Their perverted lust was so great that even after the angels struck the men blind, they still tried to get at them! (Gen 19:11). The mob wore themselves out trying to find the door.

The lesson here is that proper lust, when perverted, is a sin and sin, as we know, leads you. You become a slave to it. (John 8:34). The story of Sodom is one that shows us the bottom of the pit of where sin leads: to an out of control person and then to judgment.

Expand that picture of the men trying to get into the door where fresh men were staying, with a mob blindly clawing their way to the door and trying to batter it down. That will be the scene many times over when the Holy Spirit Restrainer is removed from the earth at the Rapture and men's passions and perversions get out of control during the Tribulation. The days of Lot.

I'm glad to see a semblance of restraint in Connecticut at that assembly-play and an outcry against such blatant sins. And I assure you, the outcry was not because the audience lacked empathy for the gays and lesbians portrayed in the play and by extension, all gays and lesbians, it was because there are still some people left who say such things are sins, and not to be tolerated. And let me assure you of this, the play organizer and writer was not trying to instill a sense of empathy for gays and lesbians, he was trying to desensitize us to the potent effects of perversion, to normalize it. I'm glad there are still some people around who just say no to sin's drug of perversion and depravity.

  1. jesus and his two best friends (as transfig) incarnated to abraham, even to the taking of food

    satan always accuses, and seeks degradation of, the sons of adam -- human men, because god breathed his holy spirit into them thru adam, and because of their inheritance

    pinnacle of that degradation is forced sodomy, and willful demeanment of masculinity, rampant, tolerated, and often encouraged, in US male prisons, as in sodom

    walking the world, christ's two servants warned, then christ destroyed those who sought to harm his people ('whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye')

  2. Take heart you have kept yourself in Christ for our Lord is coming!
    Take heed you he serve God with your mouth but you give excuse for evil such as this and you name Christ, turn from your sin then you will be forgiven.
    Malachi 3

    1Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the LORD, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

    2But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:

    3And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

    4Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.

    5And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.

    6For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

    7Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?

    8Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.

    9Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.

    10Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

    11And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.

    12And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.

    13Your words have been stout against me, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee?

    14Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts?

    15And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.

    16Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

    17And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

    18Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

  3. But when you say "gay agenda" people act like they don't know what you are talking about and the PC police come running. Just unbelievable and extremely sobering...

  4. Reminds me of the Twilight Zone with the doctors and hospital staff that are all horrid pig faced people, but the So ugly as to make people sick and want to leave the room is the ''beautiful'' main character and the man who comes to take her to the place for the other ''undesirables"

    What's with religious blogs? Don't ya'll know that the internet is a sin ?

    1. The Twilight Zone were good morality plays. I enjoyed those episodes too.

      The internet is not a sin, any more than the telephone is a sin. Gossiping ON the telephone is a sin, and watching porn ON the internet is a sin. Personal behavior is one's choice. The technology of life either affords you opportunity to share His glory (as in religious blogs) or to shame one's self.
