Skip to comments.Homosexuals Arrested at Liberty University (equating perversion with black America’s struggle)

Homosexuals continue to equate perversion with black America’s struggle in the 1960s for equal rights. Highly offensive. But then again, they don’t care about offending me.
An organization called Soulforce has formed a group to go on a 51-day tour of Christian and military colleges that oppose homosexual behavior. Members of the so-called Equality Rides travel to schools to “present a powerful case for GLBT equality.” For you virtual virgins, GLBT stands for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered. “Transgendered” is a euphemism for a man in a dress [or who thinks he should be a woman. What is the difference? ]
On the first stop of a 51-day “gay-rights” bus tour aimed at bringing media attention to the non-admission policies for gays at 20 Christian colleges and military schools, 24 members of the Soulforce Equality Ride found themselves sitting in the Lynchburg, Virginia, jail, arrested for trespassing at Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University and facing possible $2,500 fines and a year in jail.
Equality Ride is modeled after the “freedom rides” of the 1960’s civil rights movement and the group, many wearing buttons reading “Learn from history,” says its cause is the same as ending racial discrimination was a generation ago.
Liberty University is private (thankfully), so Jerry Falwell was within his rights to have the group arrested as trespassers. Here’s what homosexuals can’t seem to grasp: Christians are opposed to the homosexual lifestyle not because we’re ignorant; we oppose it because God does. Exposure to the homosexual lifestyle or listening to “equality” sermons won’t negate or erase the word of God, no matter how many ways you serve it up.
Update: Blogger Randy Thomas recently appeared on a panel with a Soulforce member. The post is a must-read.
Update II: Reformed Christian apologist and debater James White says of Soulforce: “Their real goal is the overthrow of biblical morality, its utter abandonment by Christian people.”
Hopefully this week or next, National Review Online will publish an op-ed/review I wrote (finally) for Raising Boys Without Men: How Maverick Moms Are Creating the Next Generation of Exceptional Men. The author is enamored with lesbian couples and other “single by choice” women raising boys without fathers.
Additionally, if you find yourself in DC on March 27 and 28, stop by the Vision America Conference. I’ll be there.
Update III: I landed a week-long guest blogging gig at Belief.net. I cross-posted today, but look for fresh content this week. While visiting the site last week, I found a link to The Da Vinci Dialogue. Check out the line-up of experts.
On a different note, this post hasn’t generated hate mail yet (It’s a miracle!), but I’ve got “liberal Christians” e-mailing, urging me not to deny homosexuals their “civil rights.” News flash: people who engage in that lifestyle have the same civil rights as I do. What they want are special rights.
