Since 2008, there has been a growing sense of outrage levied at Black traditionalists by gay activists. In Washington, DC. The predominately white same sex marriage movement recruited several handsome, young black leaders to be citywide spokespersons. This strategic move was designed to combat the impression that white gays have been attempting â€œ to hijackâ€ the Civil Rights movement.
A document called â€œThe Gay Manifestoâ€ (which many gays say was only a satirical document) contains the following: â€œAll churches who condemn us will be closed. Our only gods are handsome young men…We shall rewrite history, history filled and debased with your heterosexual lies and distortions. We shall por- tray the homosexuality of the great leaders and thinkers who have shaped the world. We will demonstrate that homosexuality is a requirement for true nobility, true beauty in a man.â€
Whether the manifesto first printed in 1987 was satire or not, it has paralleled the strategic thinking of gay activist leaders for years. Here are two appropriate questions:
1. â€œ Will the church be free to preach an un- compromised Gospel, which includes Biblical guidelines for sexuality?â€
2. â€œ Will gay activism create an atmosphere in our schools that intellectually seduces our children into non-Biblical lifestyles?â€
All around the world preach- ers have been arrested or fined for â€œhate speechâ€ for preaching about human sexuality from the Bibleâ€”from the Ake Green case in Sweden to the fines levied on public officials in Canada.
I have personally been harassed and have received death threats because of my views of Biblical â€œsexual integrity.â€ Schools will become the next political battle ground. If our entire nation\’s marriage laws are redefined, it will require a redefinition of education and its role in culture. If the school, not the parents, are given the responsibility to teach our kids about sex; a tsunami of change will occur in education. Books like â€œ Heather has two mommiesâ€ or â€œThe Prince and the Princeâ€ have come to be taught in the 2nd grade in Massachusetts. In Maryland today; sex education classes discuss oral, anal, and vaginal use of condoms with middle schoolers.
Since gays cannot reproduce, they must create a climate in which they can recruit. The future of our families and our grandchildren is at stake.
In conclusion, let us remember that both Scripture and com- mon sense calls us to seize the moment and respond to the crisis in our culture. If the church does not teach the word of God within its doors and engage in the democratic process outside of its doors, radical redefinition of basic life concepts will occur. These redefinitions will affect how the next generation thinks about family and marriage. There can be no truces in this war. It\’s a winner take all battle. In many ways gay activists will not stop until they are â€œmore equalâ€ than the rest of us.
