Gay “marriage” advocates – aka the sodomite lobby – have long claimed that those who disagree with their perverse lifestyle have nothing to fear from them. All they want, they claim, is to be left to live their lives (and loves) in peace, like everyone else.
They then promptly go out and use the power of government and a bullying media to force their lifestyle on others.
On Wednesday the radically leftwing website Buzzfeed focused its sights on HGTV hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines, building a strawman in order to make war on Christians. The column by the obviously anti-Christian bigot Buzzfeed “reporter” Kate Aurthur, fails to even rise to the level of shoddy journalism.
The column is headlined, “Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Church is firmly against same-sex marriage.” But it reveals it’s nothing more than strawman and “guilt by association” in the subhead which reads, “Their pastor considers homosexuality to be a ‘sin’ caused by abuse — whether the Fixer Upper couple agrees is unclear.” It’s only unclear because Aurthur failed to even ask them.
Of course, it’s perfectly reasonable for a “church” and its preacher and for all Christians to be “firmly against same-sex marriage.” Marriage is defined by God in Genesis 2:24 and affirmed by Christ in Matthew 19:5 and Mark 10:8 as being the union of a man and woman.
What is unreasonable and unscriptural is for someone who calls himself a Christian to find its practice acceptable.
Many sodomites seeking to find justification for their sin claim Jesus never mentioned “gay marriage” and, therefore, never condemned it. But in affirming what marriage was, Christ eliminated what marriage wasn’t.
Jesus spoke several times about fornication, which is a general word covering unlawful (that is God’s law) sexual intercourse outside of its rightful place in the marriage of one man and one woman. He called sex outside lawful marriage “sexual immorality” in Matthew 5:32 and Matthew 19:1-9. That clearly covers sex between same sex couples and sex between unmarried heterosexual couples — whether adultery or fornication.
Jesus also told the disciples in John 14:16-17 that there were concepts and principles he would not address that would be addressed by the Holy Spirit, which would guide the disciples to “all truth.” The Holy Spirit guided the authors of the New Testament, so the epistles are an extension of Jesus’ — and, therefore, God’s — teaching.
If one dismisses the epistles, or any of the books of the New Testament, then he doesn’t believe Jesus and is not a Christian, whatever his claims to the contrary.
In writing about homosexuality in Romans 1 (calling it a shameless act) and 1 Corinthians 6 (saying those who practice it will not inherit the kingdom), Paul was writing the word of God as given him by the Holy Spirit, which was by extension the message of Christ. (1 Corinthians 14:36-38)
But Paul also wrote that those who “suppress the truth” or “ignore God’s righteous decree” of the truth and “give approval” to those who practice sexual immorality — or to a host of other sins mentioned in Scripture — are just as guilty as those who practice it.
Now back to the Buzzfeed hate/hit piece. Aurthur’s calumnious screed is so biased and nonsensical that even the pro-sodomy Washington Post opined against it – calling it dangerous — as did Ross Douthat of The New York Times.
So what if the Gaines agree with their preacher? Is it now a litmus test that one cannot remain employed or in business for himself if he doesn’t not succumb to the sodomite point of view? Apparently so, for there are many examples. Here are a few:
The sodomite lobby and their PC, tolerance crowd enablers tell us everyone must be tolerant of “alternate lifestyles” and gay “marriage” and non-Christian religious practices. They create out of whole cloth hate crimes and thought crimes in order to enforce their “tolerance.”
But the tolerance crowd does not tolerate opinions that don’t bow before their orthodoxy and they use government, the courts and a bullying media to force their will on others.
