Liberty and Virtue

A person who experiences same sex attraction and who endeavors to live chastely in accordance with his religious beliefs keeps an eye out for examples of gay activists' (1) showing intolerance and hatred of traditional religious and moral beliefs and believers, (2) attempting to deny freedom of speech, assembly and religion to others, and (3) trying to cause the government to impose liberal views on sexual morality on society. Other stuff of interest to blogger may also occasionally be posted.

Gay activists do not speak for all those who experience same sex attraction!

Not all those with SSA reject traditional sexual morality!

Not all those with SSA support promiscuity!

Not all those with SSA believe the gay activist ideology of “gay pride”!

Not all those with SSA believe in making their sex drive their primary public identity!

Not all those with SSA support public indecency in “gay pride” parades!

Not all those with SSA support government promotion of homosexual activity!

Not all those with SSA support same sex marriage!

Not all those with SSA support biased teaching in public schools on homosexual matters!

Not all those with SSA demonize traditional religious believers!

Not all those with SSA wish to deny basic freedoms of speech, religion and association to those who disagree with the gay activists’ ideology and agenda!

Christian charity for persons does not require affirmation of sinful or immoral activity!

Bishop Gene Robinson Honored at Gala for Major Gay Rights Group

Practicing and promoting homosexual bishop Gene Robinson of the Episcopal Church, at a ceremony in his honor given by the "gay" activist group Human Rights Campaign, spread hatred against traditional Christian believers by castigating anyone who believes in traditional Christian teaching as hateful, and stated his wish to deny them the right to believe what the Christian religion has always taught about the sinfulness of homosexual activity. Note the following from the above-linked article:

In his acceptance speech, Robinson lamented how “those of us who are religious have led in the oppression of gay and lesbian people, transgendered and bisexual people.” He went on to berate “the religious right,” who he said “doesn’t speak for all of us,” “doesn’t love the way God loves,” and has been allowed “to hijack the Bible and to hold it hostage from us.” As for the alleged abduction of Scripture, he declared that “it’s high time for us to take it back,” since “that book contains our stories of liberation.” Robinson made it clear that he had no intention of allowing people morally opposed to homosexual practice to maintain such teachings within their own voluntary religious communities, announcing that “we will not rest until the church and all religious people repent of the violence that they have done to us and reclaim our spirituality and our God.” Robinson’s remarks provoked enthusiastic applause at several points.

Actually, it is Bishop Robinson and other gay activists who want to hijack the Bible, change Christianity into a new religion and call sin (like sex outside of traditional marriage, including homosexual activity) virtue and virtue sin. In order to deligitimize Our Lord's call to purity of heart and the teaching on the sanctity of sex only within heterosexual marriage, Bishop Robinson and his supporters constantly conflate hatred for sin, which Christians must have, with hatred for sinners, which Christians must avoid. Christianity is based on love, to be sure, but love does not mean that anything goes and that there are no moral standards of behavior. Jesus said "go and sin no more," not "go and sin some more and celebrate it, and we won't consider it sin anymore."
