Skip to comments.“We’re out of the closet, now Christians need to go into the closet”

When Vallejo Mayor Osby Davis told the New York Times in November that homosexuals are committing sin and that sin will keep them out of heaven, little did he know his remarks would continue to reverberate in the Bay Area city of about 120,000 and lead for calls that he resign.
The pro-family lobbying group Capitol Resource Institute reported Dec. 10, Vallejo is the site of an escalating battle involving public statements and private morality. As a consequence of Davis remarks, said CRI, the community is divided in their reaction to this statement. Some have called for the removal of the mayor, the appointment of an openly gay individual to the Vallejo Human Relations Commission, and official recognition of an LGBT Pride month. Many of these demands are wrapped in the misguided claim that the mayor's statements violate the wall between church and state. And much of the criticism begins with the accusation that the religious community in general is motivated by hate.
We are monitoring the situation very closely, said Kevin Snider, chief counsel to the Pacific Justice Institute. While it may be unwise for an elected official to discuss his religious beliefs with a New York Times reporter, it certainly is not illegal. It is troubling that so many believe that there is such a restriction on protected speech.
In a Dec. 10 statement, Pacific Justice Institute, which describes itself as a non-profit 501(c)(3) legal defense organization specializing in the defense of religious freedom, parental rights, and other civil liberties, also expressed concern about the numerous attacks aimed at the Vallejo religious community showing up in letters to newspapers, in emails...

A declaration of war?
“Many of these demands are wrapped in the misguided claim that the mayor’s statements violate the wall between church and state.”
First of all, I might ask “what wall”? Secondly, this guy is not “the church”. He’s just a guy.
We all know Christian persecution is coming.
Actually, it’s not “coming” - it’s here. Christian persecution has been employed for a very very very long time.
LGBT Pride goeth before the fall (I know, it’s not the exact quote, etc., etc.)
Sell your garment and buy a sword.
Apparently they want a bit more than that....
And if you can, buy enough swords to equip your brothers.
The love that dare not speak its name, is now the love that won’t STFU.
Homos are just another one of the spearheads in the war against Christianity.
More and more that "private morality" is being forced into the public forum due to the overt actions of the immoral. Homosexual parades that should carry an "R" or "X" rating are commonplace. The Homosexual agenda is being foisted upon the gentry at an alarming pace. The Sodomites are not content with mere emergence from the closet, they are demanding special protection and then privilege.
The statement made was truth and based in religion. The assault on free speech is part of their agenda, silence those who oppose their message.
I only turn the other cheek long enough to reload.
That is why it is important to show your Christianity. I keep a large cross on my office computer, and quotes from the bible on my cubicle walls. Among these, abundant anti-global warming material abounds. I dare them to start something.
I have several “swords” manufactured by guys like Springfield armory and Mossberg. Tell the limp wrists and muzzies to bring it on.
When the Clampdown comes, it won’t be the limp-wrists and Muzis that we’ll be facing. It’ll be the local police, sheriff, and National Guard, plus whatever alphabet soup agencies the Fed ends along. You might be a good shot, but against a SWAT team with thermal imaging, automatic weapons, and air support, you’re toast.
Besides, they won’t have to confront you openly. They’ll just shoot your wife and kids if you resist. The only people who can effectively fight them are men with no families and nothing to lose. Unless you fit that description, the idea of defying the Clampdown is stupid.
I’m always hopeful about the future, but extrapolating from the current situation leads me to the distinct possibility that I’ll be spending the last few years of my life staring out from the wrong side of a barbed wire fence. In the brave new world of tomorrow, he who will refuse to burn a pinch of incense to the god of this world will sooner or later find himself in the Coliseum. I only hope that I’m worthy of the honor. Better men than me have died there.
And your point might be?
It is un-Christian to not love our enemies. However, to let them live in sin without letting them know of their eternal destination is not loving. We need to pray that God will act in their lives to realize the harm they are doing to their eternal souls.
Likewise, we cannot be cowered to give up our Christian beliefs, or to go into hiding, but I pray it does not come to the sword, "For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses." (2 Corinithians 10:3-4)
There's no way I'm a better man than you, but I'd be honored to stand beside you, if that's what it comes to.
All praise to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, through whom and by whom, in the unity of the Holy Spirit be all honor and glory to God the Father.
