Matt Barber: the Sodomite agenda goosesteps along
It was hard to read Bam Bam's piece over at WingNutDaily without laughing out loud. His 19-year-old brother Jared questioned the Concerned Women for America head about Matts endless obsession with all things homosexual, when there is so much other sinning going on in the “Christian” community. His brother wrote:
Christians, as a whole, focus too much on the homosexual issue alone. They attack it solely, denounce it and live whichever way they please. Adultery, fornication, racism, pride, jealousy, selfish ambition, drunkenness – all of these immoral acts take to the background in view of homosexuality, and so we as Christians are set up as anti-gay instead of anti-immorality. We need to end our own hypocrisy, all of us, I as much as any, so that we can more blamelessly broach this subject and others.
Whoa. Are they from the same gene pool? Matt thanked Jared for his analysis, but quickly zeroed in on “Christians, as a whole, focus too much on the homosexual issue alone.”
Gee, I wonder why? Please try and wrap your minds around this backflip, double-twist defense of what he sees as lesser sins than, say, adultery (which the bible says you must be stoned for). Keep your eye on the ball, Bam Bam says, because none of those sins has the backing of an army of politically savvy, rich sodomites behind them. The rant continues below the fold.
Unlike the sin of homosexuality, the other sins you cite – the sins of adultery, fornication, racism, pride, jealousy, selfish ambition and drunkenness – do not have the benefit of a tremendously powerful and prosperous lobby that is blindly supported by people in positions of political influence, and other leftists in media and elsewhere who have been duped by the crafty and disingenuous rhetoric of “tolerance” and “diversity.”
Proponents, practitioners and enablers of homosexual sin demand that we all renounce God's express condemnation of such conduct and embrace this spiritually and physically destructive behavior as virtuous – as a wholly equal, alternative sexual “orientation.” They believe that the only thing objectively immoral is to reckon there are things objectively immoral. Yet, when others find freedom from the homosexual lifestyle – as untold thousands have done through the loving and redemptive power of Jesus Christ – those former homosexuals are maliciously maligned for committing a betrayal most immoral. Like that popular hotel in California, “You can check out anytime you want, but you can never leave.”
Where in my copy of the Homosexual Agenda are we forcing anyone to be a proponent of sodomy? Well, Barber goes right on to the Nazi/war metaphor. How can he type this and not laugh at his own insane writing?
And so, fervent and relentless homosexual propaganda goose-steps along, trampling upon those who observe traditional notions of sexual morality. This sets homosexual sin worlds apart from the other sins you reference. Therefore, we Christians are left no choice but to assign homosexual sin significance commensurate with that which it demands.
Thus we find ourselves – back against the ropes – in a fight we did not pick, struggling in a culture war we did not ask for. It's a clash of worldviews in a zero-sum-game. Make no mistake; the sin of homosexuality is the bunker-buster bomb in this war against morality.
I'll have to ask my buddy Joe Murray if Matt cribbed from his old Sodomy Squadron post.
