Not only that, the MINUTE I hit “POST” for this thread, the area in Tokyo starts shaking (8:47 p.m. Monday local) with a moderate earthquake. Hope “the powers that be” are not perturbed. Anyways, all clear now. (Hopefully). :^)

Good article AiT, hope all is well with you and yours?

I would take slight (a very slight) issue with the concept that homosexuals "Make God Want To Vomit", by saying that it is not the individual homosexual as a person, but their BEHAVIOR that creates any sort of queasiness in the Almighty's Tummy, because above all things, God IS a God of Love, He loves us wretched sinners enough to permit us to choose our own eternal destiny, even if that destination is an eternity seperated from Him.

Sorry for the verbosity this morning, basically I'm just reiterating the concept of "hate the sin/love the sinner".

As for your conjecture that the lamestream media will pound on this (and Santorum) while continuing to give a total pass to the unright Reverend Jeremiah "God D*mn America" Wright, you are as always, right on the money.

Have a great week!

"...homosexuality is “so nasty and disgusting that it makes God want to vomit.”"

Well sure, in the context that ALL sin is abhorent to God - there are no "little sins" or "big sins", there are only sins, some of which, as in homosexuality, like any sexual sin, cuts deeper into a person's soul - not that it is any worse, but the resulting bondage is greater (no pun intended).

And it is actually luke-warm fence-sitters (from the book of Revelation) that really make God want to vomit.

Wish we could get Santorum folks and Santorum to support Newt to take Florida.

Little Ricky is in it for Little Ricky—he doesn’t acknowledge that there are causes bigger than himself. Ergo he won’t stop campaigning until he absolutely runs out of money. And I wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up endorsing Romney out of spite for Newt, whom he seems to have an inferiority complex towards.

Let’s hope this talk isn’t merely diversion from a down low lifestyle. Funny he mentions something like this, fairly minor in the scheme of things, as making God want to vomit. What does he think abortion does in comparison? Or religiosity (such as Jesus referred to when he said that things would be more bearable for Sodom on the day of judgment than for those whose religiosity led them to reject him)?

To: Psalm 73

“...there are no “little sins” or “big sins”, there are only sins...”

I am no theologian, so the following is based on what I call “wiki knowledge” which is to say, a poor excuse for knowlege. But, from Mark, Chap 3.......

“But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven, but is guilty of an eternal sin.”

Now, there is a lot of disagreement on what it means to blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, but one definition is...

“...the deliberate labeling of good as evil...” which I believe is similar to the Catholic concept of impenitence.

My take on this is that while the act of homosexuality itself is simply another sin, the attempt to persuade society that it is not a sin, and that those who are, quite naturally, disgusted by these acts are the ones who are evil, is an “unpardonable sin.”

But then I don’t presume to speak for the Lord.

B A H. 1 government benefit acronym for gay marriage.

If God does not vomit at gays, America will.

Government officials have received special
employee red carpet treatment from the industry and
laissez faire franchisers at the expense of willing
compromising employees using BAH arrangement for support of their whore spouseds and degenerate children.

But this gay thing is so govenrment employees get even more options for red caret treatment: ie. tax benefits for a friend or a kid
(child porn) who is “married” to the government employee.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH WITH THIS HORSECRAP OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

WE DO NOT HAVE TO BE CORRECT AND UNCRITICAL OF
THESE CORRUPT GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AND LEADEDRS

THEY CAN ALL TAKE A FLYING HIKE OF
IGNORANT CHILDLISH SHAME TO CHINA WHERE A DEATH CAMP AWAITS THEM.

Actually, I hope the mainstream media jump all over this pastor and attack Santorum for being backed by this pastor. The simple fact of the matter is that lots of black evangelicals detest homosexuality and an aggressive attack on this black pastor could help show black evangelicals that Democrats are not their friends.

Dr. D. James Kennedy had homosexuals picketing his church for his sermons condemning homosexuality, though in less colorful terms than this black pastor. My home church in New York City, Neighborhood Church of Greenwich Village, was attacked by a homosexual mob throwing rocks through windows when a group of young people passed out flyers in Greenwich Village saying homosexuals could change. There's no way to “play nice” with homosexuals and avoid their wrath, and I'm no longer willing to try to avoid antagonizing them. I've pretty much come to the conclusion, based on the extreme viciousness of the anti-Christian behavior of many homosexuals, that we're dealing with outright demon-possession. At minimum, we're dealing with people who have been given over to “shameful lusts” and a “depraved mind” (Romans 1:26, 28).

Some of us happen to agree that the Bible strongly condemns homosexuality, calling it an abomination and perversion.

If you don't agree, that's your right in America. But many evangelical Christians and conservative Roman Catholics agree with what this pastor said, though perhaps not with the way he said it.

I'm required by my evangelical convictions to believe what Romans 1:26-32 says. You don't have to agree if you're not a Christian, but don't blame me for following the clear original intent of the Bible:

“(verse 26) Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. (27) In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. (28) Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. (29) They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, (30) slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. (32) Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.”

Well, the mental image of homosexual behavior—especially male on male—does trigger the natural biological gag reflex at gross stuff in normal humans.
And we ARE in HIS image...

...very politically incorrect to say so though.

When Santorum drops out, Newt should pray to the God that the gays make vomit that Santorum either withholds his “endorsement” until very late in the game, or swings it toward Romney. Newt does not need this kind of fundamentalist vote going to him-—the MSM and Obama will use it against him.
The only appeal Santorum can count on is this small group of
fundamentalists whose BIGGEST issue, or at least the one that distinguishes them from the other candidates, is precisely this kind of issue, one that does not have much importance to the masses of voters Newt will need both to win the nomination and to win the Presidency.’

It’s down the slippery slope, one corruption at a time
more and more brazen and public. They want the
football team train treatment or “red carpet”... whatever
can make em satisfied. what is worse, some one living
a sane nice quiet life is the envy. They are greedy, lusty, jealous envious animals.

Women are so stupid to vote for the gay feminist
agenda, because they are going to devalue all the
benefits women have had up until now. That BAH government benefit they were receiving, they will take it from them, period.

There is no way in hell this “men’s rights feminist” system is acceptabke.

No thats not scriptural

Its luke warm Christians who get vomited out ...

God says if we are luke warm He will spew us out of His mouth

I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would that you were cold or hot. So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth. Revelation 3:15, 16

about homosexuals God says..

‘Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is an abomination. Leviticus 18:22

‘If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. Le3viticus 20:13

In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. Romans 1:27

Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders 1 Corinthians 6:9

Likewise, Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities near them, which like them committed sexual sins and engaged in homosexual activities, serve as an example of the punishment of eternal fire. Jude 1:7

That Zerobama corrupt PC racist homosexual hypocrite
is not quite coming out the closet. He is not letting people and women know what this is all about. He is a pimp who thinks appealing to women’s and
children “humane” feelings and inner corruption
with the aim of tabooing out the good and wise
is going to work.

With an idiot coward government slave media and coward
laissez faire industry, it might work.

So who is he wanting to see killed? People who work.

I wish he came out the closet for real and explained
the whole fraud he is along with his homosexual agenda, proclivities and budget in mind for his “labor appointment” who are his secret communist gay boyfriends.

Come out the closet f@g is all I have to say, unPC, serve me dinner b!tch. What is good for the goose is good for the u know what.

As a government employee one is obligated to
denounce and prosecute a corrupt superior abuse and wasting.

What with the blatant personal irresponsibility (risky, corrupt, uncontrollable multiple cavalier behaviors through free will choice) in the bath houses and what not, I am certain there are not a few of “gay diehards.” Anybody who does not think we are in a culture war, seeing the annual dockside “Navy Kiss” being conducted between two women—one an officer of the ship, in my opinion, does not have their head screwed on right when it comes to Natural Law. And I don’t mind standing up for it in those clear terms and offending sensibilities. Same with abortion, or other murder(s) of innocent people. All symptomatic of the dark days we live in in the USA and elsewhere worldwide.

my pastor..haha.

This article is SOOOO slanted. Rev. Dozier tells it like it is. What the article does NOT mention:

1. Due to death threats (against not only him, but his wife and children) from the left, my pastor had to get a CCL, and carry at all times.

2. Through a “Straw Buyer”, CAIR purchased the abutting property to our church and is planning a 22,000 Sq Ft MOSQUE and Islamic center for the grand total of SIXTEEN Muslim families in the area. This was done without ANY public zoning meetings with the abutters.

3. The local “arts” press publishes weekly scurrilous articles excoriating Rev. Dozier, Congressman West, Radio Host Joyce Kaufman, “Americans Against Hate” founder Joe Kaufman (no relation to Joyce), Senatorial Candidate Mike McAllister, The Tea Party, and other decent conservative people. These newspapers are distributed free everywhere, as subscriptions are unnecessary to support them. The reason? They are supported almost completely by advertising for Swinger Clubs, Strip Joints, Massage parlors, and Porn Shows.

4. The Phrase “makes God want to vomit” is actually a paraphrase from the Book of Revelation (Referring to Christ’s feelings about the “lukewarm” church). Rev. Dozier wasn’t saying anything that Scripture hasn’t already expressed.

Anyway...I love that man, and I am sure Our FRiends here on FR would love him too.

The MSM would NOT have a hard time exploiting Santorum’s
endorsement of Gingrich-—they would use it just as surely as they used his ex-wife Marianne’s testimony against him/
Gingrich would be seen to be “anti-gay”, and the “Gay Agenda” would have even LESS chance of being discussed honestly in the ongoing political debate as the truly fundamental ones of the economy and Big Government do. This is a hot-button, wedge issue, and always has been, and you can be sure if Newt has anything to say about it, it would be way more subtle and complicated than anything the MSM has the patience to hear, so it would never get a fair hearing, anyway, like just about everything else.

You totally totally totally missed the point. You apparently cannot separate government from church apparently. You apparently cannot separate a political campaign from the role of the church.

I agree with D James Kennedy (and you) on this issue, but it’s not the foundation upon which to build a Presidential campaign. I don’t need a President to tell me what is right in regard to this issue. I don’t need Rick Santorum nor his campaign staff to tell me either. I absolutely resent the implication you made that because I think this is totally stupid campaign strategy that I disagree with you on the foundational truths.

It’s that exact kind of judgmentalism and stridency that is such a turn off to RS (like Bachmann before him).

GO AWAY RICK!”

I don't agree with you at all on this.

Homosexuality is a wedge issue, not only for conservative Christians but for lots of non-Christians who view homosexuality as disgusting and perverted.

As one farmer put it, “even pigs don't FY— that way.”

It's also a key area on which President Obama disagrees with large numbers of black pastors. I'd personally love to see a conservative evangelical black pastor given lots of media time by pro-homosexual media who think reporting on his views with hurt Republicans.

I'm very much aware that there's a lot of homosexuality in the neo-conservative part of the Republican Party. I'm also aware that for the economic conservative and libertarian parts of the Republican Party, lots of Republicans oppose the government “getting into bedrooms.”

Okay, fine.

If the only way Republicans can win races in California and Massachusetts and New York and other left-of-center places is by being economic conservatives who think limited government means the government doesn't promote morality, I don't have a problem with saying that I'll take the votes in Congress of a Republican who agrees with me on 90 percent of issues when the alternative is a Congressman from the Democratic Party who disagrees with me on 90 percent of issues.

But don't try to argue that most Americans don't care about homosexuality. Despite all the efforts of the movie industry to glamorize gayness, it hasn't succeeded, at least not yet. Ronald Reagan was absolutely right about the dangerous power of mass entertainment to corrupt America, and what the movie and television entertainment industry is doing with homosexuality is a key example of that, but it hasn't yet succeeded in doing so.

That sums it up nicely for this Roman Catholic. I agree that homosexuality is an abomination & like abortion, is intrinsically evil. Can’t say I would have put it quite like this pastor did, though.

I do beleive that with God’s grace, people can change & repent. I pray daily for the conversion of homos as well as abortionists. I turst that God will forgive them if they seek Him.

He campaigned vigorously for Rep. Allen West, an African-American conservative who shares Dozier’s views on gays and Muslims.

Did he retract his statement about how being gay is similar to ice cream preference?

Ditto.

Strange days around these parts when a man faithful to his wife is ridiculed as Mr. Goody Two-shoes.

because above all things, God IS a God of Love, He loves us wretched sinners enough to permit us to choose our own eternal destiny, even if that destination is an eternity seperated from Him.

Personally, I'd like to see the God that says, "P1$$ on my gifts and I'll smite you down." I'm thinking that would go a lot farther nowadays than a big 'ol heavenly hug in terms of getting people to correct their behavior.

Having a few pillars of salts appear where a liberal once was, wouldn't give me any heartache whatsoever.

THANK YOU FOR CHECKING IN FROM FLORIDA.

Good to get your direct insight. This is what I love about Free Republic. Never know who is going to show up or with what kind of interesting information or insight. That is what has kept me here and active, for sure, for 12 years+ now. Wow.
