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!

UCC isn't Totally Welcoming

The Boston Globe had a priceless letter to the editor today, illustrating perfectly the liberal mindset on religion and homosexuality:

Regarding the Dec. 2 front-page article "Two networks bar church ad welcoming gays": While I feel the TV stations are circumventing the social issue, I do not feel the article should lead one to believe that all United Church of Christ churches embrace the gay and lesbian lifestyle. Unlike the Catholic Church, the UCC doesn't have an autonomous hierarchy that dictates or mandates church policy. The Massachusetts Conference and the General Synod recommend policy guidelines. The individual churches remain independent to establish and carry out their own policies and procedures. The UCC churches in Natick and Wellesley are wholeheartedly welcoming churches. There are some UCC churches, however, that draw a distinct line between acceptance and tolerance. I think of these churches not yet as open and affirming, but rather as ajar and promising. When the minds in the pews meld with the minds of the highest court in the land, the UCC will truly become a wholly welcoming denomination.

Gotta love that last line -- forget that Christians should be following Christ and the Gospels, modern liberals know the true source of all religious and moral authority with whose mind we should meld -- the Supreme Court! By the way, I agree with the writer that the UCC is not welcoming -- by demonizing other Christian churches and misrepresenting that Jesus wanted inclusion without repentance of sins, the UCC is being most unwelcoming and uncivil to those supposedly benighted people who are exercising their constitutional right actually to believe Christian moral doctrine.
