Discouraged (Follow up)

with 9 comments

After a bit of searching around, it is being reported that the Oklahoman lawmaker who spoke so harshly against homosexuals has a gay son, Jesse, whom she and her Baptist preacher husband have disowned.

I guess for a woman to whom being a Christian = “no way gay,” then her son being gay MUST be the result of some vast school/government conspiracy to indoctrinate children. Surely it couldn’t be that her church-reared son could be gay… well, just because he’s gay. She needs a reason beyond what her mind and beliefs can compute.

And secondly, I decided to copy and paste verbatim my boss’s blog for today. Judge for yourself.

Am I tripping or what?

I am appalled at the accepting attitude people have towards homosexuality these days. I’m not talking about homosexuals as they are sinners just like we are and need our prayers, but I am talking about the sin of homosexuality. Our nation now refers to homosexuality as being “gay”. Webster’s Dictionary defines gay as “bright excitement”, “merry”, and “full of social pleasure”. In the Bible God defines homosexuality as being an “abomination”. Webster’s defines “abomination” as utterly loathsome or detestable, something that elicits extreme dislike and something to abhor.

“Gay?” –“What is” a total disconnect between our God and our modern day society.”

Listen to these verses: Leviticus 18:22 – “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an ‘abomination’. Nor shall you mate with any animal to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion.” The Bible spells this out but I did not need to have this spelled out to me to know that it is wrong. I think most of us feel the same way; innately knowing that it is very wrong. So why did God spell it out? Obviously it is there to condemn this behavior and to prevent satan from convincing “the entire world that it is merely a “lifestyle choice”.

Listen to what God had to say about how serious this sin is in His eyes. Lev. 20:13 – “If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death.” I doubt many were “coming out of the closet” when this law was being enforced!

Many believe that since this was written in the Old Testament, that it is no longer applicable. I suppose they want to brush aside passages in the New testament such as 1 Cor. 6 : 9-11 where homosexuality is spelled out as being one of those things that would prevent us from inheriting the Kingdom of God or in 1 Tim 1:10. There are other references but why belabor it; those who want being “gay” to be considered an acceptable lifestyle choice will ignore it or argue it incessantly.

Satan is clever and it has not proven all that difficult to turn the meaning of a sin that God considers to be an abomination into being considered to be a “gay” lifestyle in modern society. This is not his greatest feat to date. He convinced the world to take Christ out of Christmas. Instead of being the day the world has designated to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, he has convinced many to simply X Christ out of Christmas and instead use “X’mas”, and to fondly think of Santa Claus instead of our Savior on that day.

Satan has convinced many that Easter is not about celebrating the death, burial and resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ, but a day when the Easter bunny hides its eggs for us. Could it be that satan is really not that clever and convincing the masses to believe his lies is really not that difficult because the masses have “itching ears” and are more than willing to believe his lies? Satan must really laugh about his successful attempt to confuse the real meaning of Easter to our vulnerable children. Consider the silly idea that the “mother of all rabbits” the Easter Bunny lays multi-colored eggs. This sounds like something I hallucinated in the ‘60’s when I was dropping tabs of LSD and “tripping” all over Haight and Ashbury streets in San Francisco and yet satan has successfully motivated the masses to faithfully trudge down to the store and buy billions of dollars worth of candied Easter Bunny eggs. Egad!

Satan wants to convince us that sin is “bright excitement”, “merry”, and “full of social pleasure”. I doubt that even gay advocates think that HIV is much fun, nor is the guilt, pain, and heartache that is derived from this abominable sin. You see there is always a consequence to sin and our dear Lord is not just espousing a bunch of ridiculous rules to us because He is a stern disciplinarian or wants to boss us around. God loves us with all of His heart and even gave His son to die for our sins including homosexuality. No, God is warning us like any good parent would warn their child against behavior that will be harmful even to death. Society, (us), should have the courage to call homosexuality what it is, a sinful abomination, something to abhor, that is utterly loathsome and detestable and teach our young people accordingly.

Unfortunately our society will never do that and perhaps it will be the end of it just like Sodom and Gomorrah… There was nothing “gay” about that event… Sodom and Gomorrah early home of the gay lifestyle should remind us that evil will not be forever and God will judge all of mankind with swift justice.

Always remember that God is more powerful than satan and there will come a day of redemption just like the day when satan the most powerful and beautiful angel of light was thrown out of heaven in disgrace. He will be defeated again and then he will forever be chained in Hell far from enticing those who have accepted Jesus as their Savior. Jesus Christ defeated satan on the cross and soon He will return for us and satan’s lies, death and sin and the Easter bunny will be no more.

Luke 10:18
And He said to them, “I saw satan
fall like lightening from heaven.

  1. Are you kidding me?? This guy is a royal piece of work himself! Holy crap, you sure do know how to pick your workplaces sister 😉 When you’ve talked about his rants before, i truly didn’t imagine *this* stuff. Wow is all i can say to this.

    But really, is he freaking serious that he starts with “Am i tripping or what?” and then mentions dropping LSD in the same post that talks about Christ and abominations?? Don’t even get me started. I have now seen it all.

    Moreover, i think he is being totally unprofessional by providing this to his workers. I mean that’s just plain weird.

    Don’t know what to tell you except find a new dang job because that guy is unacceptable, yikes. Move north out of this crazy bible belt and get a real job with real bosses who care about getting the job done and don’t care if you’re left or right, in or out, yellow or purple, or all of the above.

    Something tells me you wouldn’t be half as preoccupied with your spiritual awakenings and searchings if you didn’t live amongst the wholly indoctrinated and blindly obeying blabber mouths. You’re just made more keenly aware of it around here, which is why i promptly tune them out and go about my day. Easier said than done with that boss of yours though, oy.

  2. Wow! First of all, I’m right there with Wenzday in pointing out his attack on sin, but talking about his own drug use. What’s that about removing the log in your eye before commenting about the speck in someone else’s? Shouldn’t the one casting stones be the one without sin – not him? And the last time I checked, HIV was not a “gay” disease. It floors me that people, in this day and time, can be so single-sided. Time to take off the blinders, exercise grace, and remember that Jesus said the greatest commandment was to “love thy neighbor as thy self” and that this ‘law’ should be followed above all else. Wow.

  4. I wasn’t implying that your entire workplace was full of these types (though we do know your former one her in bham was!)…i’m just saying that the bible belt in general brings these sorts of issues to the forefront of your mind much more than if you lived in a more non-religious place. I remember when i moved down here how floored i was by the fact that there were Christian/religious stories on the local news…ones that openly professed Jesus as the Savior etc. That’s simply unheard of where I come from. It’s just infused into the daily life around here, much more so than in other parts of the country. You can’t escape it here, you’re forced to think about it.

    And here’s an ironic twist i found in your bosses story that hit me after i commented last…he was “tripping” all over Haight Ashbury, hahah, *San Francisco*??? I freaking LOVE it. Much like i nearly hit the nail on the head with your lawmaker friend there from Oklahoma (she has a gay axe to grind with her son being gay and therefore doth protest too much), what *else* was your boss doing around San Francisco amidst his hallucinations in the 60s?? Perhaps he too has a gay axe to grind himself? Or perhaps he was surrounded by it and therefore he witnessed some things first hand that just set him off for the rest of his life? Who knows. Either way, the fact that he was high in The Haight and now routinely blasts homosexuality is simply too funny for me.

    People who get so dang worked up over things that simply don’t concern them obviously have a screw loose, your boss is no exception.

  5. That is terrible about that couple disowning their child.

    Where does your boss post these? Did you find his private blog, or does he post it for all of his employees?

    I am going to assume that it is the latter (otherwise, you’d stop going to it).

    Also, I’m also going to assume that you are making six figures, otherwise, you’d leave. That is awesome, Cheryl!

    With your wonderful salary, you might want to invest in a book on Greek for him, because the reason the X is used in Xmas is it is similar to the Greek symbol for Christ; therefore, it is not irreverent, just open to a lot of misinterpretation. If he doesn’t trust Greek, here is a church web site that also says it: http://www.orlutheran.com/html/chrcufaq.html

    Then you might want to hire a private eye to see if he has any tattoos, and whether he eats all organic meat. Leviticus also says tattoos are an abomination, and that you shall not boil a baby goat in its mother’s milk. (Today, factory calves are feed their mother’s blood when they are slaughtered; same principle if you ask me.) Have the private eye gently point out this hypocrisy to him.

    Most of Levitical law has been superceded by the New Testament–if he’s still abiding by it though, why pick this one thing? So with your high salary, you may also want to hire a therapist to speak with him on his bus ride into work, and discover the root of his obsession.

    On your next fabulous vacation with your six figures, may I suggest someplace tropical where they bring you drinks, and then you can clear your mind from all of the craziness you work with.

    Finally, stop reading his blog. It’s like when you drive by a wreck or floss when your gums are already sore. It’s bad, but you can’t look away or stop flossing. Quit it.

    Love,
    L.

  7. You boss is a crappy human being, and a crappy writer too. How do you fit Jesus vs. The Easter Bunny, plus the exclamation “egad!” into a blog?

    I’ll stick with you, Cheryl. Your Sodamistic posts of abomination are much more entertaining. Uh, that, and also you’re not a pr*ck.
