I'm writing rewarding the gay, lesbian and trans-sexual movement. I speak the truth and will defend it, and my right to freedom of speech. I don't say these things with my misconceived ideas that I will change anyone's mind, but to get it off of my chest and speak the truth.
Sometimes the truth hurts, but the truth will set you free if you accept it and live by it.
I would like to add my two bits to the fray concerning the letter of March 2, "Paper shouldn't have allowed use of term 'anti-christ.'
The writer's wanting the Standard-Examiner to not print or use the term homosexual 'anti-christ' is full of holes. You can not compare a homosexual Christian to an African Christian. It is not a sin to be African, Asian, disabled, etc.; but, it is to be a practicing homosexual, as much as an adulterer or fornicator (Exodus 20:14, John 8:3-10).
First of all, I am going to go out on a limb and make a guess that although the writer's church loves the sinner, they do not live the sin. Homosexual activity is a sin no matter how you cut it. If the writer's church does accept homosexual activity as okay, especially for a pastor, then maybe one should take a second look at those tenants.
Secondly, it is not a sin to be an African, Asian, etc. The writer is comparing apples to oranges. Homosexuals are children of heavenly father the same as Africans, Asians, etc., and he does love them. He can not, however, love the homosexual activity because it goes against his plan. Homosexuality is not natural.
Homosexual activity is of the anti-christ because it has no means of propagating the human race. It is Satan's plan and he is doing everything in how power to stop heavenly father's plan. Make no mistake.
As human beings, we are here on the earth as children of God. Part of his plan is for us to gain a body. Homosexual activity can not do that.
If the parents of the writer had been practicing homosexuals, he would never have been born. That's a no brainer!
