Skip to comments.Homosexuals Destroy Israeli Messianic Business [in Israel!]
Posted on 07/12/2014 3:51:22 AM PDT by daniel1212
The Jerusalem District Court has ordered Moshav Yad Hashmonah, a community of Messianic Jews and Evangelical Christians, to pay compensation to two lesbians after it refused to host a same-sex wedding reception. "We knew we were breaking the law. Somebody needed to do it." says Ayelet Ronen, general secretary for the village.
Judge Moshe Yoad Cohen upheld a lower court ruling that the Moshav violated a law prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation.
During the trial, representatives of the Moshav quoted from both Old and New Testaments. "We do not hate homosexuals or lesbians. We love them. We simply told the court that it is God's word in the Bible that calls homosexuality an abomination," Ronen told Israel Today.
She continues: "As a faith-based community we need to be able to refuse events that blatantly oppose our religious beliefs. We explained to the judge that a same-sex celebration would ruin our business. The majority of our clientele are Christians who vigorously oppose gay marriage."
The lesbians' lawyer accused members of Yad Hashmonah of "homophobia," pointing to an announcement published by the Moshav that "no homosexual or lesbian organization will be allowed to rent space for functions on our premises."
That announcement came in response to a flood of requests for same-sex celebrations on the Moshav from gays and lesbians hoping to pass more court decisions requiring the Messianic community to pay out huge compensations.
As a result, the Moshav was forced to shutter their events-hosting business, resulting in huge financial losses. "We used to host an average of 35-50 weddings a year over the past 12 years. Israelis from all over the country, religious and secular, loved to come here. Now there are none," says Ronen.
Judge Cohen held that the Moshav cannot refuse to host a same-sex wedding reception even if doing so goes against their own conscious. The Moshav's lawyer, Michael Decker, challenged that ruling, asking the judge, "What if a Catholic went to an Orthodox Jewish carpentry in [the ultra-Orthodox town of] Bnei Barack and asked them to build a statue of Mary? Would they have to build the idolatrous image?"
The judge replied: "They would have to make it or else be fined. That is the law."
Ronen says that the ruling demonstrates that "even the judge understood that current laws are not providing sufficient protections for religious communities."
According to Ronen, "a lot of religious Jews and rabbis have secretly told us 'good for you. We are glad that you take this stand.' But they will not stand with [Messianic Jews] to change the law. They hate us too much and would never work with us."
In his ruling, the judge upheld the earlier verdict of the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court, ordering Yad Hashmonah to pay the two lesbians damages of 60,000 shekels ($17,000) plus another 30,000 shekels for attorneys' fees for both the original suit and the appeal. "At this time we are not planning another appeal. To lose again would not sound good," says Ronen.
If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord's throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men. (Psalms 11:3-4)
Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. (Psalms 2:1-3)
Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. (Psalms 2:10-11)
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.
God made man and women uniquely compatible and complimentary, in more ways than the physical aspect, and only joined them in marriage, which Jesus Himself specified. (Gn. 2:18-24; Mt. 19:4-6) Homosexual unions are only condemned by God in the Scriptures by design and decree, in principle and in precept.
And attempts to force homosexual relations into passages it does not belong extends even to pro homosexual apologetics on the Bible, the specious nature of which as http://peacebyjesus.witnesstoday.org/Homosex_versus_the_Bible.htmlHomosexuality reveals, and i find the manipulation of the Bible by them to be more serious than even homosexuality.
It’s vicious and vindictive aggression, the way these people seek out small businesses who don’t want their business.
If they really just wanted their “rights” they wouldn’t go looking for small businesses to stomp on.
But whether in Colorado or Israel, they really have a Gay Old Time stomping on small prey.
It shows the pure evil in their hearts.
Damn these fags to hell.
The Christian business owners may take comfort that they will be praised in the next life for their bold stand against disgusting, vile perversion.
Were I the prime minister of Israel, I would deport the gaystapo to Gaza, let Hamas deal with them
Jeeezzz - if this has taken hold in Israel, we’re finished.
It doesn’t matter what the issue is, the law is not there to force someone to serve someone else against their will.
Its called economic sanctions, which increasingly will be one way of compelling all to pledge allegiance to the United States of Sodom, one nation gone under, and to the abomi-nation to which it stands. One nation, indivisible, with no liberty and justice for all who oppose a lifestyle (among MSM) that is responsible for 79% of new HIV cases, and typically results in a greatly increased incidence of infectious diseases and premature death.
However, some of the first Christians were likely former homosexuals, (1Cor. 6:9-11) and there is room at the cross for all who want the Lord Jesus over sin, and believe upon Him to save them who died for them, and rose again. And who thus are baptized and follow Him, to the glory of God.
Israel is considered one of the most “progressive” countries in the region when it comes to this sort of thing.
“LGBT rights in Israel have advanced in recent years and have generally been seen as one of the most progressive countries in the Middle East and Asia. Same-sex sexual activity was legalized in 1988, although the former law against buggery had not been enforced since a court decision of 1963. Israel became the first in Asia to recognize unregistered cohabitation between same-sex couples, making it the only country in Asia (together with Vietnam) to recognize any same-sex union thus far. Although same-sex marriages are not performed in the country, Israel recognizes same-sex marriages performed elsewhere, making it the first and only country in Asia to do so. Discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation were prohibited in 1992. Same-sex couples are allowed to jointly adopt after a court decision in 2008, while previously allowing stepchild adoptions and limited co-guardianship rights for non-biological parents. Gays and lesbians are also allowed to serve openly in the military.
Recent polls have indicated that a majority of Israelis support same-sex marriage, despite some social conservatism. Tel Aviv has frequently been referred to by publishers as one of the most gay friendly cities in the world, famous for its annual Pride Parade and gay beach, earning it the nickname “the gay capital of the Middle East” by Out Magazine. According to LGBT travelers, it was ranked as the best gay city in 2011, despite reports of some LGBT violence during the 2000s, which were criticized by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres. A monument dedicated to the LGBT victims persecuted by Nazis during World War II will be erected in Tel Aviv.”
Read the whole Wiki entry; I think a lot of people would probably be quite surprised to see how “gay friendly” Israel really is, most notably that gays are allowed to serve openly in the IDF.
The lesbians’ lawyer accused members of Yad Hashmonah of “homophobia,”
So now it’s official, heterophobia, also know as filthyfagedness is normal sexual behavior and “homophobia’
is an official mental disorder and people can be prosecuted
for it in Israel? Screwit, let the muslims have em.
Homosexuality is a filthy unnatural act that most normal,
unintimidated, people find disgusting while “homophobia” is just a normal thought that most normal people have.
I guess it’s time to cut Israel loose, with all their spying
and covert ops against us they really weren’t much of an ally
anyway. I just never knew that a state like Israel would fall
so easily to the bunghole burglars as the Catholic Church did.
This is very, very ominous.
And I'm one of them!
I agree. There’s no shortage of places to hold a reception. But they convince themselves they know better than God - at the cost of their souls. They’re like alcoholics - drunk on their own narcissism.
Fish for those who can be caught and pass by those who cannot hear. Pray for Israel.
At least the judge was consistent:
What if a Catholic went to an Orthodox Jewish carpentry in [the ultra-Orthodox town of] Bnei Barack and asked them to build a statue of Mary? Would they have to build the idolatrous image?"
The judge replied: "They would have to make it or else be fined. That is the law."
Thus a Jewish or black baker would forced to bake a special cake for a KKK celebration.
But would a homosexual baker be forced to do the same?
I would say drunk on power. The Gay Fascists are head-over-heels drunk and madly in love with their new-found political power. And they love stomping on people just for the sheer joy of doing so.
As a group, they are a vicious and sadistic mob.
You would think they had no history to warn them:
And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy. (Ezekiel 16:38)
As I live, saith the Lord God, Sodom thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters. (Ezekiel 16:48)
Even Uganda knows better.
Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: (Romans 9:27)
But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them. (Genesis 19:4-5)
And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door. But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door. (Genesis 19:9-10)
But as said, some of the first Christians were likely former homosexuals, (1Cor. 6:9-11) and there is room at the cross for all who want the Lord Jesus over sin, and believe upon Him to save them who died for them, and rose again. And who thus are baptized and follow Him, to the glory of God.
