Obama-Praised Gay Activist Says God is a “Sinful Homophobic Bigot”
LifeSite ^ | January 11, 2010

Posted on 01/12/2010 10:35:15 AM PST by NYer

WASHINGTON, January 11, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Frank Kameny, a “pioneering” homosexual activist who was honored by President Obama and his administration, says the God of the Bible is a “sinful homophobic bigot” who needs to “repent of his sinful homophobia.”

Kameny made the assertions about the Judeo-Christian God in a letter to Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, October 13, 2009:

“Your God of Leviticus (and of the whole Bible) is clearly a sinful homophobic bigot.  He should repent of his sinful homophobia.  He should atone for that sin. And he should seek forgiveness for the pain and suffering which his sinful homophobia has needlessly inflicted upon gay people for the past 4000 years.” wrote Kameny to LaBarbera. “It is not homosexuality which is always wrong, immoral, and sinful.   It is homophobia, including the homophobia of your god himself which is wrong, immoral, and sinful.  And so your god is a sinner….”

An astronomer who was fired from his federal government job in 1957 due to his homosexuality, Kameny led the first public homosexual protest in America (over his firing), in 1965. Kameny, who gained notoriety with his aggressive, counter-cultural slogan “Gay is Good,” was a leader of the organized homosexual activist campaign to pressure the American Psychiatric Association to remove homosexuality from the list of mental disorders (which succeeded when the APA capitulated in 1973).

On June 17, 2009, Kameny received the official White House pen from President Obama in a White House signing ceremony enacting Obama’s executive order providing domestic partner benefits for certain federal employees.

Later, at a June 29 White House speech honoring “gay pride month,” President Obama praised Kameny, saying, “we are proud of you, Frank, and we are grateful to you for your leadership.”

Kameny was also honored by John Berry, Obama’s openly homosexual Director of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), in a special ceremony June 24, 2009 sponsored by the OPM “gay” employees organization. There, Kameny received the Theodore Roosevelt Award, the OPM’s highest honor, “For More Than a Half-Century of Leadership in the Struggle for Civil Rights.” Berry also issued a formal U.S. government apology to Kameny for his firing over 50 years ago.

Responding to Kameny’s letter asserting that God needs to repent, AFTAH’s LaBarbera said:

“Of course Frank Kameny’s outrageous statements about God are completely backwards: it is Frank who is the stubborn sinner who needs to repent. Thankfully, it is never too late for sinners to turn away from their sins and humbly accept God’s forgiveness through Jesus Christ.

“However, in one sense at least Kameny is forthright about how his homosexuality-celebrating ideology stands diametrically opposed to God’s plan for mankind, as revealed in the Bible. Unfortunately for Frank, he has no authority to judge sin and morality; that is the province of Almighty God alone.”

Frank will be given the opportunity to tell that to God in person. My guess is he will regret the day he uttered those words.

If my fuzzy memory serves me still wasn’t there a story of a Sodom and Gomorrah a city that God destroyed for their unrepentant, arrogant sins of perverted homosexuality?
Ahhh but that was so long ago.....perhaps the Creator God has become more enlightened now in progressive thought and unbigoted, non-sexist modern views—but what do I know!

What you have here, is a man who cannot escape his conscience, and that’s a wonderful thing. If he were happy and content in his homosexuality he wouldn’t give a rip about what anyone else thought.
Hopefully, his consciousness of his sin and misery will drive him to the Great Physician who is able to “pardon all our iniquities, heal all our diseases, and redeem our souls from the pit.” Psalm 103

God has already prophesied it through His Word to the likes of this cad.

II Peter 2:10-16

Bold and wilful, they are not afraid to slander the glorious ones,* 11whereas angels, though greater in might and power, do not bring against them a slanderous judgement from the Lord.* 12These people, however, are like irrational animals, mere creatures of instinct, born to be caught and killed. They slander what they do not understand, and when those creatures are destroyed,* they also will be destroyed, 13suffering* the penalty for doing wrong. They count it a pleasure to revel in the daytime. They are blots and blemishes, revelling in their dissipation* while they feast with you. 14They have eyes full of adultery, insatiable for sin. They entice unsteady souls. They have hearts trained in greed. Accursed children! 15They have left the straight road and have gone astray, following the road of Balaam son of Bosor,* who loved the wages of doing wrong, 16but was rebuked for his own transgression; a speechless donkey spoke with a human voice and restrained the prophet’s madness.

Next, he said, “Allah is a sinful homophobic bigot and all who follow his path and the path of Muhhammed should beg for forgiveness for not being more accepting of homosexuality.”

Nah, he never said that. We all know why.

You may have missed the following thread last week. Here is the original article from LifeSite News.


ROME, January 6, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The killing of 50 million unborn children a year and the moral degradation of the post-Christian west will naturally and necessarily lead to a global political and financial crisis even greater than that which is already happening, said the head of Human Life International (HLI), the world’s largest pro-life organization .  
 
In a lengthy interview, Fr. Thomas Euteneuer spoke to LifeSiteNews.com (LSN) at the HLI office in Rome and said that he anticipates a disaster like the collapse of ancient civilizations, but on a global scale, as a result of abortion and the abandonment of Judeo-Christian values in the West. (Read the complete interview here)
 
“It’s happened in every society that has reached its pinnacle of civilization and then collapsed,” Fr. Euteneuer said.
 
“Look at Carthage, the Phoenician empire was much more powerful than Rome for a period of time. But Carthage had a religion that offered human sacrifice of babies. Eventually it degraded from within and collapsed on itself.” 

“We’ve got a serious crisis on the horizon. I’m not a prophet of doom but I don’t see this going any other way but a serious political crisis that’s going to affect the globe,” he said.
 
In the “moral dimension of the law of nature,” the killing of countless millions of children through the 20th and 21st centuries will require a tipping back of the scales of cosmic justice on an unimaginable scale, he said.
 
The salvation from this impending disaster, he said, is not the election of a different party or political candidate: “We have to turn back to God.

They never should have declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder. It clearly is.

Frank Kameny will someday find out that it doesn’t work that way and it most likely will be him for all eternity who will wish he had repented for his sinful ways. We are warned about mocking G-d....

Well, at least this man recognizes that God is against homosexuality, so in that sense he is less hypocritical than the liberal church denominations that are around today.

The word “demented” comes to mind. But of course many homosexuals do hate God for having cursed them with their affliction.

“If people get fed up and just elect another political party that is just as bad as the previous political party, it does nothing to stem the global crisis that’s going to come upon us. What we need is a conversion of heart.”

He should repent of his sinful homophobia.

Which begs the questions, to whom does the author think God should repent?

“...Sodom and Gomorrah a city that God destroyed for their unrepentant...”

.
God probably regrets for what He did to those quaint little towns of Sodom and Gomorrah after noticing what is happening now in San Franfreekshow.

Oh, well, He can always correct Himself.

They declassified it as such because psychoanalysis wouldn't cure it. But mental health people still make a ton of money by treating gays for all sorts of neuroses.

“What you have here, is a man who cannot escape his conscience, and that’s a wonderful thing. If he were happy and content in his homosexuality he wouldn’t give a rip about what anyone else thought.”

I think you are absolutely correct. Every out-and-out homosexual I’ve ever met (all professionally) seem determined to make all straight people as miserable as they are themselves. I believe they are miserable because deep down in their souls, they know that their sexual depravity is wrong, and they cannot rationalize it. It makes them miserable, which they then try to project on everyone around them so that if they can’t be happy like everyone else, making everyone else miserable is consolation for not being happy.

So why do they call it “gay?”

That story of Sodom and Lot has always bothered me. It bothers me because Lot told the perverts to take his two virgin daughters and “do whatever you want with them” as long as they leave the angel guests alone. I guess Lot didn’t have a 12-gauge at the time. I’m just saying.

Perhaps the Creator is more guilty of adding to global warming and excessive carbon emissions upon destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. He was in attendance at the Copenhagen meeting however atoning for the extra heat and very large carbon footprint.

They are suffering what Paul calls, in Romans,” the “wrath of God.” Human beings are distinguished from all other animals by our possession of consciousness. But it seems to serve no evolutionary purpose. If we were zombies, or robots like Data, we would be as well off. It is here, however, where we talk to God. Or rather where we seek a ground for our being.
