Drug addicts (i.e. pot smokers) want to be seen as simply seeking an alternative reality. Gays and lesbians just want to be seen as normal. Pederasts want to become just the child-friend neighbors next door.
Who can blame them?
And who are their enemies?
Society/culture at large, those who believe in God--any god perhaps.
This is the standard tug of war that has gone on forever. All the way back to ancient Greece and before.
The problem is that this is a war, an ancient war, between the Truth and the LIE.
It's that same old war.
I listened on the radio today as Dick Cheney praised gay marriage because his daughter is gay. Well, okay...that is one way evil gains a foothold.
My son or daughter is gay...I love them, therefore I must approve of their sin.
And this is where the rubber hits the road. This is the razor's edge.
The problem is religion.
The problem is right and wrong.
And in the end, a person must choose.
We must choose right (i.e. God) or we must settle on something less (the love of our children--right or wrong).
If we choose our children (right or wrong), we relinquish our role as leaders--as parents.
We give in to our children even though our children are leading many to sin...to death.
To offer a loved one THE choice (and to tell them the truth about the consequences)...to offer them a chance to choose an eternity of Godliness over an eternity of sin...and to tell them of your disapproval of their path and why. What greater act can a man perform for his children or for God?
But to tell a child that their act of sin is OK...that, in fact, God is wrong.
Wow...I would not want to make that mistake.
Is smoking pot more wrong than drinking alcohol?
