Gay activists say the mourning over Billy Graham’s death is “disturbing”
The Bridgehead ^ | 2-23-18 | Jonathon Van Maren

I wasn’t going to write anything about Billy Graham’s passing simply because I don’t have anything new or interesting to say about him. I never met him, although my grandmother went to hear him out of curiosity at the Feyenoord Stadium in Rotterdam in 1955 with a fellow nurse. I attend a conservative Reformed church, and so our theology runs to the George Whitefield tradition as opposed to the more Wesleyan tradition of Billy Graham, who apparently preached directly to more than 210 million people—the largest number of anyone in human history.

But the response to Graham’s death was interesting, in that it proved a point that many of us who are engaged in the culture wars have been making for quite some time: The “Love Wins” activists of the LGBT crowd have only vitriolic hatred for anyone who refuses or refused to embrace the redefinition of marriage and the trashing of 2,000 years of Christian belief on sexuality. Canada’s Michael Coren, who is rather renowned in media for being a nasty fellow, has penned a column solemnly urging those mourning Graham’s passing to also remember that Graham didn’t change his mind on gay marriage, and thus unfortunately is consigned in history to standing with pipsqueaks like St. Augustine and G.K. Chesterton, rather than giants like the adept mind-changer Coren himself.

And Coren’s pitiful offering was only the least of it. John Semley, the freelance writer who penned a sloppy and slanderous takedown of Dr. Jordan B. Peterson in the Globe and Mail, tweeted hopefully that Billy Graham is now “reading the scripture in hell, baby!” Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca tweeted “Have fun in hell, b****.” The Independent announced that the “outpouring of grief for evangelist Billy Graham is disturbing given his homophobic views,” because apparently nobody is allowed to cry when someone who doesn’t agree with gay marriage dies.

Aside from those few examples—I could go on, but they all say more or less the same thing—countless tweets, all wishing that the Hell these activists presumable do not believe exists, would briefly come into being in order to receive Rev. Graham. And why? Because he preached the simple truths about marriage and the human person that Christianity has held since the Crucifixion. There is no simple “live and let live” in a society where gay activists have, for the moment, won the majority of the cultural victories. Even the death of someone who disagrees with them must be greeted with hatred, derision, and the wishes of eternal pain. Don’t cry, they warn everyone. It’s just another dead homophobe.

It’s a shame that “Love Wins” was just a pathetic hashtag.

Just imagine what these folks would have to say about He who said this in Matthew 19:4-6?

Why would we expect enemies to mourn an enemy’s death?

Water is wet.

It would be ironic if the Navy renamed the USS Milk “USS Graham”.

They claim all the time that they would never have crucified Him, but they prove it all the time that they would have done so all too gleefully.

The PC crowd, far left loonies and progressives including their media sycophants all preach and cheer the LGBT message.

Billy Graham, not so much.

Make no mistake about it. The END GAME of the so-called oxymoronic "Gay Rights" is the same as that of the whole Leftist agenda all of which is driven by the spirit of antichrist:

BAN THE BIBLE, THE GOSPEL, AND PRAYER

Jesus said that when all people think well of you...watch out. He said that if they hated Him, they will hate his followers. Dear Dr. Graham is in the best possible company.

Indeed. It should have never been legalized.

We wouldn’t be having to deal with these perverts running amuck in society except for people believing them having back door adventures without risk of ruining their lives was all they wanted.

The “love that dare not speak its name” is now apparently now incapable of shutting the f*ck up.

And the ONLY answer to that behavior is the gospel of the grace of Christ - the ONLY solution to the sin problem (Romans 6:14).

Get ready folks, Jesus said that immediately preceding His coming back to the world, it was going to be like Sodom (and the days of Noah)...

Luke 17: 26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

It isn't sex.

How dare they call it that.

Seeing how many have open relationships, they would hate the messenger of that message as well.
