Skip to comments.Columnist Defends Homosexuals and Dumps on Christians!
Posted on 11/18/2013 8:52:29 PM PST by John Leland 1789
Rhonda Swan, a Cox Newspaper columnist wrote a column that appeared in the Chattanooga Times Free-Press in which she defended same-sex marriage and attacked the Bible and common sense. The column was riddled with assumptions, speculations, distortions, and mistakes dealing with the Bible and same-sex marriage. You knowthe normal thing that passes for journalism today. She is an author and accomplished journalist and received the reporter of the year award from the National Association of Black Journalists New England chapter. So she is not a novice; however, she is mistaken, misinformed, and malicious.
It is a misnomer to characterize same-sex hookups as a marriage. The Bible, the history of civilization, and common sense militate against homosexual marriages. They are seldom long-lasting and almost never exclusive. Note that marriage is also known as wedlock, or a pledging or commitment. Not much commitment in the homosexual movement.
She started with Dear Christians and I would like to know her definition of Christian to see if it comports with the true definition. In her first four lines, she made three serious errors. She begins her tirade by saying, It is not holy to hate. She did what most proponents, preachers, and purveyors of permissiveness do. They make a proclamation, without producing proof: that it is hateful to disparage, and denigrate, and disagree with perversionand make no mistakefor two people of the same sex to be sexually involved is perversion if words still mean what they have always meant.
If same-sex marriages should now be acceptable, then it would mean everyone for thousands of years who believed that marriage was only between a man and woman were haters, bigots, etc. That is incredibly arrogantand wrong.
She stated that it is not holy to hate; however, believing what the Bible teaches and what society has believed for thousands of years is only reasonable and safer. It is incumbent upon the pro-perversion crowd to defend their dangerous, disgusting, and deadly assertions. Need I remind Rhonda that God destroyed Sodom for the disgusting sin that was named after them? Moreover, the Bible documents that God hates evil and we are to hate evil and love the good (Amos 5:15). Then in Proverbs 6:16 we are told that God hates six things. Then in Proverbs 8:13 God hates a froward mouth, but I doubt Rhonda knows the meaning of froward. Note that it is not sinners, but sin that is to be hated.
Rhondas next sentence (and mistake) was, It is not divine to discriminate. Of course, everyone discriminates every day and we would be fools not to. I choose to drive a Lincoln rather than a GM automobile. I always choose fish over beef and choose to vote for conservatives rather than Progressives (translate: Democrats, RINOs, Socialists, Marxists, pseudo-intellectuals, and any expander of government). Of course, Rhonda was referring to those Neanderthals (all thinking people) who discriminate against homosexuals by refusing to admit it is acceptableeven desirousfor two men or two women to slip between the sheets. Question for Rhonda and all leftists: If same-sex marriage can be defended, why not marriage between two men, a goat, a horse, and a rocking chair?
Many Liberals often support perversion because Christ never condemned it. Neither did He condemn cannibalism, illegal drugs, and peeping Toms but they are all sinful and illegal. Christ spoke about marriage in the beginning between a man and a woman (Matt. 19:4-6). Ill take His word before I will take Rhondas word.
Furthermore, Bible critics and uneducated people dont understand that the Bible is Gods Word, and using a correct hermeneutic, it doesnt matter whether or not Christ condemned something. If it is taught as sin in any Bible passage, it is wrong.
To keep same-sex marriage from becoming acceptable is Scriptural and common sense, something most purveyors of permissiveness do not possess. God created Eve for Adam, not Oscar. If it had been Oscar, Id not be here. Rhonda Swan, the very broad-minded Cox columnist, accuses Christians of using the Bible to make homosexuals second-class citizens. But she doesnt understand that when people choose a life of crime, or participate in a vile subculture, they make themselves second-class citizens.
Continuing in her plummet to the bottom, Rhonda writes, The Bible legitimized the enslavement of black Americans and the subjugation of women. No, the Bible does not legitimize slavery or the mistreatment of women. It reports on slavery and provides definite guidelines on how to treat any slaves the Jews might take in battle or those who sell themselves into slavery for a period of time. Evidently Rhonda is like many of the New Atheists who are so hostile to the Bible that they shoot off their mouths (or crank up their computers) without knowing what they are writing about.
Bible critics are too uninformed to know that God forbids the kidnapping of people for the purpose of slavery. God clearly told the Jews in Ex 21:16, And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death. Throughout the Middle East, wars were almost constant, so of course slaves were taken. I suppose my critics would have preferred they be killed!
As to the subjugation of women, all historians know that the Jews were far more advanced and compassionate toward women than any other civilization. Spend a little time in the famous Babylonian Hammurabi Code (about 1780 B.C.) and that fact will be obvious.
Let me help the New Atheists, Bible critics, and general Bible haters not make public fools of themselves: the Bible records slavery, concubines, multiple wives, incest, adultery, and child sacrifice but never endorses such wickedness. Now, with that information, maybe Bible haters will not be so obviously uninformed, uneducated, and unsophisticated as they have appeared for centuries. Wonder if I will receive many thanks for the information? It is sadly true that many people twist the Bible like a pretzel to justify their own sinful actions. What must be observed is that the same-sex crowd is doing that very same thing to justify their perversion!
And now a Cox columnist defends that perversion! Copyright 2013, Don Boys, Ph.D.

Leftists have been doing that for a long time.
BTW, this same newspaper fired an editor for criticizing Obama, so its not like we expect fair and balance from them
Uhggg!! I love this cite except that some many folks who post here are homophobic. Big deal...people are gay. Forget about it. Go worry about something that matters....like the dissaster known as Obamacare
Uhggg!! Two many people can’t see the connection between the sodomite, reprobate mind, Obamacare, and all policies that proceed from the septic tank of the heart without God.
You mean ‘site’.
Just a pointer. When you use the term ‘homophobic’ you sound like an idiot.
Homophobia is not a phobia. It’s not even a thing. It’s as real as ‘cooties’. You won’t find it in a single dictionary of phobias.
A phobia is an irrational fear of something. I condemn adultery as a sinful act as I condemn homosexual acts. Am I an adulterphobe? Do you think attaching ‘phobe’ makes you sound intelligent? Heads up, it doesn’t.
I condemn practices I find to be immoral, as do the vast majority of Freepers from all backgrounds and belief systems. If you don’t think the homosexual agenda to give 5th graders fisting kits or force American girls to shower with boys who suffer from psychopathic gender confusion, then that’s your call. However, most of us know truth and lie when we see it. We’re not fooled by slogans, emotional ploys, or the twisting of history. Sodomy is a sin. Deal with it.
Fisting kits were dispersed by Benghazi Barry’s choice for “School Czar” to school children, if you didn’t know.
Kevin Jennings was his name, I think. He has since left the “office”, thank God above.
Do you have children?
What’s that? The sound you make when you’re biting your pillow?
"As a conservative site, Free Republic is pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-Constitution, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-private property rights, pro-limited taxes, pro-capitalism, pro-national defense, pro-freedom, and-pro America. We oppose all forms of liberalism, socialism, fascism, pacifism, totalitarianism, anarchism, government enforced atheism, abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, racism, wacko environmentalism, judicial activism, etc."
The nonsense you posted is not welcome here -- as per the "cite"'s proprietor.
Maybe you'd be more comfortable moving on to a fag-friendly "cite" that is more in line with your sexual proclivities.
If two guys wanna get it on in private, that is their business.
But when they want to shove it down the throats of kids in schools, propagandize on all the TV shows, redefine marriage, get people fired from their jobs, try to force normalization and celebration of their unnatural lifestyle on society then yes, people are going to worry about it because it does matter. A LOT.
“Rhonda Swan, a Cox Newspaper columnist”
Seriously, a defender of homosexuals works at Cox Newspaper? Is there a stand-up comedian coordinating all of this?
So the moral implosion of our nation doesn't matter? Really?
Do you support homosexual marriage?
It seems those who throw out the queer defense either have those tendencies or they have a loved one who turned out to be a queer...
I had a good friend (young teen) who was recruited by an older queer...The friend ultimately died in his 30's of AIDS while his recruiter lived to be an old fag...
We do not have to like or accept the perverted lifestyle you defend...Certainly God doesn't condone it but condemns it...I have to side with God...
Scott Whiteman had to move out of MA after exposing Fistgate because of legal and Death threats.
His terminology is trendy, and apparently derived from TV.
But maybe he needs some time to get his vocabulary right. He’s more likely to get it here than at some “fag-friendly cite”.
And while I deplore the fact that some people are homosexual, and feel sorry for them, I don’t feel the need to harass them about it, unless they sticking it in my face and demanding “approval” and “celebration”.
>> while I deplore the fact that some people are homosexual... I dont feel the need to harass them about it, unless they sticking it in my face
Get a clue, FRiend. Berating FReepers on this forum for not “tolerating” homosex — as MustangMan (and you!) are doing — IS “sticking it in my face”.
What part of JimRob’s “We oppose all forms of... homosexualism...” did you not understand? Perhaps you’d like to discuss it with JR.
I know this individual's comment has already been pointed out, but...Why is this guy still here?
