Posted on 02/03/2014 5:32:46 AM PST by SeekAndFind
We've had the Gaymmys; we've had Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson suspended for expressing unfavorable comments about anal intercourse; HBO has a new series, Looking about three gay men looking for love. It seems as though just about every television show, whether comedy or drama now has a gay character as a regular.
It's not surprising that homosexuality has become mainstream in our culture because nearly everyone has a relative or friend who is gay and we have been deeply influenced by those words of Harvey Fierstein who said, "I just want to be loved. Is that so wrong?" What we have failed to realize, however, is that there has never been anything morally wrong about loving anyone, same sex or not.
But love is not what is behind the gay rights movement; it is a powerful marketing tool, though, much better than using words related to the specific sexual acts that trouble many observers.
One of the most intriguing and illuminating articles I have ever read about this polarizing issue was written by a gay Catholic man, Ronald G. Lee, originally published in the New Oxford Review. Lee formerly lived in Austin, Texas, and regularly visited Lobo's, a gay book store:
Looking inside from the street all you saw were books. It looked like any other bookstore. There was a section devoted to classic "gay" fiction by writers such as Oscar Wilde, Gertrude Stein, and W.H. Auden.... But if you went inside to browse, before long you noticed another section, behind the books, a section not visible from the street. The pornography section.

Russia got it right.
Because we’ve gone insane as a society.
discontinued cable years ago. I don’t get abused by their propaganda
of course, if you see their propaganda, I would encourage you to note any advertisers and contact them. let them know that any company that supports the deviant lifestyle obviously has no desire for your business and you’ll be boycotting them and their products loudly unless they pull their ads
It starts with indoctrination in the schools.
Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. (Psalms 2:6-9)
Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him. (Psalms 2:10-12)
The left is anti-Christ.
The left seeks to use the power of the state to punish and exterminate those who oppose them, especially Christians.
Homos are a convenient vehicle through which to criminalize Christian beliefs.
Mainstreaming homosexuality is one of the Communist Goals as stated in the 1963 Congressional Record.
Of course, communist sympathizers - i.e. education, “news” media and pop culture - has aided and abetted this infestation.
also they got away with equating gay behavior via feelings with American blacks as a persecuted minority, thanks to Obama especially in 2012.
There was no anti-gay lifestyle come-back to this argument(attempted), so it thrived.
Read Romans 1:18-32.
God shows his wrath on our country by allowing the “mainstreaming” of homosexuality.
I coached HS baseball in SoCal from 2010-2013. The banter on the field was seldom directed at any one kid in general, aside from just razzing, but comments about homosexuality in general would often be bitter and biting. These kids did not seem to be getting the message.
I remember almost 4 years ago when Carl Paladino, the GOP NY State gubernatorial candidate took Andrew Cuomo to task for taking his underage kids to the gay pride parade where they were actually doing disgusting near porno things in public.
Guess who the mainstream media criticized?
Take a peek at some of the stuff they do IN PUBLIC here and tell me whether or not it is appropriate for children:
Actually if you have those links it would be more informative than seeing vids of the homo's prancing around NY parade , YUK.
Lets see that debate.

Lifetime! hell, these people LOATH themselves anew after every sick coupling.
Solely because we refuse to fight back.
This assertion is categorically false for anyone who has a biblical moral sense. The fact that they want us to discard our biblical moral code for their "anything goes" code is why it upsets us all so badly.
Some years ago I was at a midtown Atlanta hotel on business.
Wanted something to read, and there was a bookstore some blocks away. Walked over but was surprised almost every book was gay-oriented. Finally found the first book in the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series.
Wasn't till I got back outside that I grokked the name of the place. Outwrite.
Anybody else notice the last name of the author?
G*D has used This passage as a Judgement for the late-20th early 21st Century United States:
Romans 1 18-32(KJV)
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world 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 that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
They have a lot of power because they gravitate towards the septic sewer called Hollywood. Americans no longer view the perverted degenerates who populate the entertainment establishment as the disfunctional imbicles they are. They have become role models for too many young Americans. And so the Sodomite Community uses Hollywood as a vector to disseminate their pestilence.
There is nothing wrong with loving others. But (or should I write “butt”?) there is a LOT wrong with having sex with anyone we are attracted to, or having sex and calling it love.
The homosexual lobby uses ‘love’ instead of ‘sex’, but it is sex that they want. And anyone who equates love with sex is a depraved person.
It is hard to believe a popular Broadway musical once included the words, “To love, pure and chaste, from afar”...
Did anyone find selecting Queen Latifah to sing the national anthem at Superbowl a bit on the nose?
We used to properly have laws against such anti-social, immoral, and destructive behavior - behavior that is PROVEN to be a public health hazard.
We ate the apple, accepted the lie and became god unto ourselves, so we decide what our morals are.
In the meantime, today's Noah is close to finishing the new ark.
Homosexuality has become mainstream in our culture.
LOL only in Hollywood the place is a zoo for humans.
I thought Renee Fleming sang the National Anthem?
I am a Man and I have Loved a Man for years. He is Jesus Christ.
The “profanity” with gays, the sad thing is that TV DEFINES our culture...
Russia gets it right on banning these displays.
>> But love is not what is behind the gay rights movement
Love doesn’t require sodomy.
They represent 3% or our population (US Census data) but control a disproportionate amount of political discussion. They may have two highly placed members in the hildabeast and obummer.
New world order has actively been promoting immorality since the enlightenment.
Trace key figures in NWO British East India Company, and others, and how they took over education in the UK and on the Continent starting in the early 1800s.
NWO supports artists, authors, other key thinkers in society that support their agendas.
The British and European upper classes in the 1800s became progressively open about their own heinous immoralities.
Why do elite financiers want this immorality ? Because people who are enslaved to their own grossly immoral acts are easy to control and manipulate.
If one’s friend is addicted to chocolate cake, one can get just about anything from them by plying them with chocolate cake, threatening to remove the chocolate cake, etc.
These financial elites are the “power behind the throne”.
NWO has always owned and operated (therefore controlled) publishing firms. Who gets published has long been under their control. This makes people write what NWO wants to hear. NWO is very much into the idea of the “self-fulfilling prophecy” concept of basic, simple, mind control, i.e., repeat what you want to happen often enough and people start to think it’s going to happen and then people actually unwittingly start helping to make it happen.
Communism / socialism is only a front for the wealthy elites of New World Order. So communism / socialism, per se, is not the root cause of anything.
Look up Sidney and Beatrice Webb. Note Beatrice’s father’s family were New World Order merchant financiers going back generations. These two old “communists” never renounced their wealth.
They are just two key people - their are many others.
Most of the UK/US literary figures of the 1800s were grossly immoral in one way or another, were socialist/communist. It’s not by chance. The New World Order-controlled publishing business, which now means movies/internet/TV/etc. has been pushing immorality for centuries.
Homosexual is too correct, let’s just call them “homos”. That should piss the libs off.
You're right ... it does make them angry. I think it's because "gay" is descriptive of lifestyle while "homosexual" is descriptive of behavior. You see, judging people is arguably "wrong", while judging behavior is a sign of wisdom.
Truth always makes leftists mad.
There is no such thing as homosexuality.
Joseph Nicolosi, Ph.D.
Look at the men that own and control the media. They aren’t Christian.
Satan has actively been promoting immorality since the Fall.
That is the truth of the matter.
FWIW. I have observed the change in public attitudes over the last fifty years. This is to digress, but as an example I know immigrants to Canada years ago tried to please and fit in. "Go back where you came from" could be heard if one said the wrong thing. Now new immigrants from certain hell holes are given refugee status. Some of them blatantly rant on against just about everything in Canada. Even dictate a change in regular practices. No one dares let out a peep.
What I am trying to say is this. The more aggressive, the more vociferous and in your face certain groups are the more people back off. These groups inner outrage possibly as to whom they are, is vented on otherwise reasonable citizens.
Something strange has happened in our society over the years.
Yes, this is simply the latest tool. IMHO, its roots go back to the point when international banking rose in wealth and power to begin to rival heads of state, back to perhaps the 1200s.
The trader/bankers began to realize they could be more effective at staying in power behind the scenes than aristocracies which nominally ruled, since the aristocracies had to deal with public scrutiny. The bankers’ strategies hinged upon espionage and being the advisors and lenders to governments, while still be able to maintain private relationships with each other.
These banking families outwardly may project that they have a religion of Christianity or Judaism, but inwardly they worship only money and power and seek to take the place of God and be gods unto themselves and rule over “the rest of us” by deceit and temptation.
the gay culture took off toward is current power status at the same time as roe v wade in 1971. abortion and homosexuality are part of the same moral system for the same reason that the cultures that judeo christianity supplanted all included human or child sacrifice AND homosexuality.
The old testatment is full of this stuff. If you want to understand the modern age you only have to go to a good bible study to review the events of the first and second millenium BC.
liberal culture itself which has grown up since the 18th century unitarianism is basically anti christian like Islam.
Get rid of abortion and the power of homosexuals in society will diminish.
A great way to increasingly understand and expand on the Old Testament for Christian and non-Christian alike is to take up the weekly Torah and Haftorah reading cycle across the (Hebrew) year. It can only expand one’s understanding of the New Testament as well, believer or not.
The reason is the feminist movement which brought hordes of women into the workplace alongside of men, turning the workplace into a femme-fest and which spawned new protections for women under federal employment law.
The new power of the federally protected emotional/compassionate sex, combined with a feminized male worker opened the door to acceptance of demands for protection of the new females: the effeminate men who adopted the label “homosexual.” After all, homosexual guys are really just women with penises. Workplaces throughout the world went through this transition beginning in the 1960s.
