Memo to Pro-Family Leaders and Activists
The backlash against GLAAD and A&E over the firing of Phil Robertson while encouraging, has also exposed a serious danger lurking in the way some conservatives are looking to homosexuals for support for our position. Laura Ingram had some gay writer on her show, and let him get away with characterizing Phil Robertsons comments as bigotry. Lots of pro-family people are quoting Brandon Ambrosinos article in Time http://ideas.time.com/2013/12/19/the-duck-dynasty-fiasco-says-more-about-our-bigotry-than-phils/and open lesbian Camille Paglia has also written a widely distributed piece.
Im not against these people speaking their minds just because I oppose their lifestyle, but I am against the phenomenon of pro-family people thinking they are bolstering our arguments by using unrepentant gays as sources.
First, we never hear from these supposedly conservative or moderate homosexuals unless its to do damage control to protect their agenda (which is to fully legitimize homosexuality in society). We saw the same thing occur in 2012 when the liberal homosexual attack on Chic-Fil-A in 2012 sparked a national backlash. Whenever the more progressive wing of the gay movement goes too fast and threatens the success of the LGBT marketing strategy, the conservatives jump into the spotlight to soothe the public nerves. Why should we help them accomplish that?
Second, we need to recognize that the supposed liberal vs. conservative polarity in the homosexual alliance is a cleverly crafted illusion to infiltrate the pro-family movement. Of course there are some genuine political and ideological differences among homosexuals, but do not deceived, these cosmetic differences are all subsumed within the common goal of conquest of Christian civilization.
We must remember that the gay movement is a single, united cult of cultural Marxists, following the Hegelian thesis-antithesis-synthesis dialectic.
Our thesis is the truth of the Bible: homosexuality is condemned by God as an abomination.
Their anti-thesis is that homosexuality is good and normal.
Any synthesis of these two contradictory premises is abandonment of the thesis and an outright rejection of the truth of God. What fellowship hath Christ with Belial? asked Paul rhetorically in 2 Corinthians 6:15.
Our embrace of people like Tammy Bruce and Camille Paglia (as brilliant as the latter may be to quote on feminist issues) is the synthesis phase of the Hegelian dialectic and poisonous to our theology and agenda.
The rise of conservative homosexuals is a ruse to sucker us into endorsing gay rights in a slightly different form. Think about it for a moment. If these people were truly on our side politically or ideologically they would consider their homosexual inclinations a private matter and a challenge to be overcome, and never publicly identify as gay.
Lets have compassion for homosexuals but never align ourselves with them politically or give them a platform to legitimize their lifestyle. Anyone who self-identifies as a unrepentant homosexual is an enemy of the truth, no matter how conservative they may sound. Love them as lost sheep, but hate the false premise they live their lives by.
Remember, the Marxist dialectic was taught as a dance to Soviet children: two steps forward, one step back equals a net gain of one step. The progressive homosexual agenda represents the two steps forward. The conservative homosexual counter-faction is one step back. When we endorse conservative gays we are helping the entire gay movement to advance at the expense of the Bible. Lets not dance with the devil!
"...we never hear from these supposedly 'conservative' or 'moderate' homosexuals unless its to do damage control to protect their agenda..."
This has been my contention from the start. We should NEVER accept the support of activist homosexuals because their motive is ALWAYS self-preservation of their agenda, never on principle.
What does ones' sexuality have to do with their opinion? What difference does ones' sexual orientation have to do with ANYTHING? Why does it even enter the conversation?
Again I say...Amen! To claim to be a gay conservative is oxymoronic. It's why I don't trust Log Cabin Republicans. They put their 'gayness' in everyone's face and make it the center of their identity.
ALSO ... what we need more of is the spread of God’s word on the matter!
Although other parts of Scripture have been quoted on this Duck Dynasty issue with A&E, the following in Romans, chapter 1, is a key part and understanding ... as to how Gods wrath plays into this ... and why this is unique and that it is actually a judgement.
In Romans 1 ... it says
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.
17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,
19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.
20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,
21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,
23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible manand birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,
25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.
27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;
29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,
30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;
32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.
THAT would certainly be dynamite to LGBT-types ... :-) ...
Im sure they are foaming at the mouth at this part ...

Also, in reference to what someone else said about homosexuality being another sin - just like all the sins listed in the Bible ... Ill have to point out that its QUITE UNIQUE in comparison to other sins. I said the following in another posting elsewhere ... AND ... this shows how Gods wrath plays into it.
The unique thing about what God said in Romans 1 is that this particular sin is actually a judgement from God in that He has them debasing themselves in such a way. THIS (what the LGBTs promote) is actually Gods judgement upon them in that they are to do these things to themselves. They, therefore, receive gods judgement in the here and now for clearly rejecting what god has made clear to the,.
SO ... while these are all sins - fornication, adultery, thieving, drunkenness, slandering, swindling - and will not be allowed into Heaven ... none of these are, in and of themselves - a condition which God imposes upon people for their rejection of what God has made clear to them,
On the other hand the LGBT lifestyle is a specific condition and judgement of God Himself - upon these people,
AND THEREFORE, God has put upon them the absolute worst of the worst sin possible in a human being - in order to thoroughly DEBASE them to the ultimate extent in THIS LIFE, in the HERE AND NOW and not upon Judgement Day.
LGBT-people are a walking advertisement of God thoroughly debasing someone to the maximum extent possible, in a human being. They are walking around with a neon flashing sign saying Look at me! God has not even waited until Judgement Day to judge me!
Huh? I thought Phil was back on the show?
Sexual sin is also describe by Paul, speaking by the Holy Spirit of God, as a unique sin in that it is a sin against one’s own body, which was designed to be a true Temple of God.
Even if true, that's not relevant to what this piece is about. It's about falling for the trap of accepting support from avowed, activist homosexuals.
Interesting how homosexuals have apparently gotten so many sites classified as “Unsafe,” and you get a big warning if you try to open it.
He is only in episodes that were taped before his suspension. New episodes will supposedly be done without him.
It enters the conversation very quickly if you have children being told by their teachers that having sex with someone of the same gender is perfectly fine.
It enters the conversation when you are intimidated into keeping your opinion to yourself when the subject comes up because the bullying tactics of the GayKK don’t allow you to believe what your Bible says. Just ask that Miss America contestant - SHE didn’t bring it into the conversation, THEY did, to set her up.
The homosexual mafia has gotten so confident as of late, that they are orchestrating the subject being brought up for the sole purpose of showing everyone what will happen if they dare to utter disapproval of their practices. They are tyrants.
Huh. So did I. "Unsafe for Children." Right...I just chucked WOT.
I’m not at all afraid of homosexuals.
I just don’t agree with them.
That’s not a phobia at all.
Homosexual activists probably have the same agenda as the left who are using the “average” homosexual as a pawn - criminalizing Christianity.
The hatred is visceral among the activists and the left.
thx. I never let anybody get away with that when I’m speaking with them. Short response: “Please choose another pejorative, because I don’t think they fear [fill in the blank].”
OK. I saw a post last week that said he was going to start taping the next season.
Yes, and demonic.
