The Sin of Sodom, II
Contrary to popular assertions, the Bible amply condemns homosexuality (Genesis 19:1-29; Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; Deuteronomy 23:17; 1 Kings 14:24; 15:12; 22:46; 2 Kings 23:7; Luke 17:29; 2 Peter 2:6; Jude 7; Romans 1:26-32; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, NKJV; 1 Timothy 1:9-11, NKJV). About half the states also have laws against both homosexual and heterosexual sodomy. However, an aggressive and militant homosexual movement has come out of its proverbial closet with disdain for the laws of God and man. Homosexuals and their supporters are trying to force people with moral values into the "closet."
Homosexuals and some unscientific surveys have for years claimed that 10% of Americans are homosexual. Concerned about such a large, single-issue voting block, politicians have catered to the homosexual movement. A 1994 University of Chicago poll, though, using modern, random polling methods, discovered that less than 3% of Americans are homosexual. Therefore, political concessions to homosexuals are unnecessary. Besides that, God still condemns homosexuality irrespective of the number of homosexuals or a plank in a political platform.
Nevertheless, homosexuals adamantly intend to convert American into a homosexual nation. Anyone who imagines that homosexuality is a passive activity that does not affect non-homosexuals is seriously mistaken. The following quotation of Michael Swift from the Gay Community News, February 1987 will dispel that notion.
We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all-male clubs, in your houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together. Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us. . . . All churches who condemn us will be closed. Our only gods are handsome young men. . . . The exquisite society to emerge will be governed by an elite comprised of gay poets. One of the major requirements for a position of power in the new society of homoeroticism will be indulgence in the Greek passion. Any man contaminated with heterosexual lust will be automatically barred from a position of influence. All males who insist on remaining stupidly heterosexual will be tried in homosexual courts of justice and will become invisible men. . . . We shall be victorious because we are fueled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed who have been forced to play seemingly bit parts in your dumb, heterosexual shows throughout the ages. We too are capable of firing guns and manning the barricades of the ultimate revolution.
Additionally, homosexuals are a major force behind the attempt to place compulsory sex education in every school in America. Proposals include teaching the acceptability of homosexuality and numerous other perversions to children as young as five. Even words like "abstinence" have been re-defined to give parents a false sense of security while still promoting other forms of fornication.
Further, proposed or newly enacted laws and judicial decisions favorably affect homosexual demands for child custody rights, marital status (sometimes called "domestic partnership"), adoption rights, tax exemption for homosexual rights groups, foster care providers, etc. The FCC already forbids programming which speaks against homosexuality and requires that any group doing so pay for air time for homosexuals to present their message. Another danger is that efforts to revise the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include homosexuals will someday succeed. If this were to occur, homosexuals would be legally protected from discrimination in every facet of American life (i.e., housing, employment, etc.).
The homosexual agenda has succeeded frequently so far in having an impact on our society. Mayors of major U.S. cities have declared "gay pride" weeks and homosexuals and lesbians march in "gay pride" parades. The American family is bombarded regularly with the homosexual message through popular television programs (e.g., Quantum Leap, Coach, Sisters, LA Law, etc.), advice columnists ("Abby" and "Ann") and "gay" children's books in libraries. Even companies are publicly declaring themselves friends (e.g., Disney) or opponents (e.g., Cracker Barrel) of homosexuality. There are over 300 homosexual religious congregations in 47 states besides homosexual membership in traditional churches.
Numerous additional incidents of homosexual encroachments throughout American could be listed. These cited, though, are sufficient to underscore the grave threat to our families and the nation. Presently, God can still find "ten righteous souls" (Genesis 18:24-33). However, unless we address this great evil from the pulpit, in the classroom, in our journals, in our homes and before our countrymen, our families and the nation will defile themselves with the sin of Sodom.
