Orthodox rabbis,mental health professionals release bold statement on homosexuality

A coalition of over 150 Orthodox rabbis, respected mental health professionals, community leaders, and others from across America and several foreign countries have released a statement that strongly refutes and repudiates the liberal Jewish political correctness and misinformation regarding homosexuality.

The document, entitled "Declaration on the Torah Approach to Homosexuality,"clarifies the timeless theological understanding of the Biblically mandated prohibition. That position is that no one is "born gay" — and that same-sex attractions can be modified and healed.

The document's list of signers includes well-known figures in the mental health field as well as a pantheon of major figures in Orthodox religious circles. It also includes Brian Camenker of MassResistance and others, as community leaders.

The declaration was released on Monday, December 26 -- the 6th day of Chanukah. That timing was not coincidental. Chanukah celebrates the Jews' resistance to forced Hellenization.Homosexuality was one of the hallmarks of ancient Greek culture.

This should have happened 20 years ago. But, I guess, it is better late than never.

By forcing children to glorify homosexuality-—they are forcing secular/pagan/atheism/occultism into their worldview—it will normalize the behavior and make children reject the Bible as hate speech, parents as bigots and haters—along with all those who hold true Judeo/Christian beliefs. You cannot expose 6 and 7 year olds to such sick unnatural ideas—it sexualizes them and removes meaning and mystery from the intimacy of the sex act. It reduces it to an animal act......exactly what atheists/pagans want.

Muslims practice sodomy—it is not banned in the koran—it is routinely practiced in Afghanistan openly—our men are indoctrinated and conditioned to “ignore” boys being sodomized. That is why homosexuals do not condemn mosques or muslims (proves it is a learned behavior also)-—they also want to return to the Ancient Greek and Roman practices.

I'm glad to see someone taking the stage on this other than christians for once.
On a side note:
Originally the Dedication of the Altar the Jewish holiday of Channukah ironically has become almost as unrecognizable as the modern iteration of christmas.
Basically, the Jews of the first century weren't showing up at the Temple Mount to light a menorah and give presents.

The following paper by a Karaite Rabbi gives more in depth historical discussion than your link.....if anyone is interested...... Festival of Dedication or Pagan Fire Festival?

Courage indeed, the gay attack machine will be put in hyper drive over this. My guess is that as we speak the list of signers is being gone over, looking for vulnerable targets.

Channuka is only a “modern iteration of christmas” for those who choose to celebrate it that way. However, the lighting of the Menorah does date from very early times, as reflected in discussions dating back to the talmud. True, the Jews didn’t show up at the Temple Mount to light the Menorah and give presents because that was never ordained as the way of celebrating this holiday.

Karaites are a very small minority of Jews (or believed to be Jews) who reject the Oral Law of the Torah (the Mishna and the Talmud, eg.). Traditional Judaism therefore regards their practices as something other than Judaism. Consequently, a Karaite Rabbi is at best a rather dubious source for information on Judaism, even in a historical perspective, since he rejects most of the sources we rely on.

Bottom line: the lighting of the Menorah in Jewish homes to commemorate the miraculous events of the Jewish rebellion against their foreign oppressors and the aftermath, has been around for about 2,000 years. And yes, there are even some customs, predating Christmas, regarding gift-giving, primarily in the form of small amounts of money to children, known as “chanuka gelt”.

Refutes and repudiates?

If only there was a single word for that. ;^)

Chanukah isn’t a modern iteration of Christmas; Christmas is a modern iteration of Chanukah, in a sense. Chanukah includes Jesus’ celebrated birthday, the 25th of Kislev, when the Spirit of God dwelt once again in the Temple of Israel.

Would “deconstruct” meet your criteria?

Thank you for the link to an unpolluted version of the history of Chanukkah. For someone still young in leaving Christian idolatry, this was a very refreshing historical paper.

Rome has been trying to obliterate Hebrews since before they marched and took Jerusalem. It continues today. They have masked over our highest holy days with their own. Much as the muslims after them who learned their way from them, they have stolen the very reason we are who we are and claimed it for themselves.
The muslims, who today are attacking Christianity, even as Rome attacked us, are committing patricide. Most people do not even remotely understand this...or the parallels from which they sprang.
They failed then. They will fail now. The truth is too terrible to confront, the brainwashing too complete to overcome with reason. Those who know the truth do not even dare speak it. But we know. And we abide sure in our faith. We teach our children almost in secret. As long as even ONE exists that walks in the Truth, our spirit will never die.

When it comes to homosexuality, for once the liberal/Marxists are not lying.

It is about the children.

this is great news but where is their voting block & has the orthodox jewish community (not haredi)figured out to whom they shold really vote for unless the lines have already been drawn in voter precints for the upcoming election;just like Rahm Emanuel wanted it to be for Chicago with the black vote districting before he left the WH and assumed his seat of power as mayor of Chicago-’cause that was the deal that Rahmie made with Barry
