Trying to get my thoughts together on how to talk to people involved in abomination sins. I think it is good to distinguish between people who are just caught up in a sin but don't assertively justify the sin and those who justify the sin and put down anyone who opposes their activity (call evil good and good evil). I think the "struggling sinner" should be treated with understanding and compassion, like Jesus dealt with the adulterous woman at the well (John 4:1-30). The self-righteous sinner who despises anyone who does right should be treated forcefully like Jesus did with the Pharisees (Matt. 23:1-39).
As considering the sin itself, it seems to me that sins of perverted sex: Homosexuality (Lev.:18:22 and Rom. 1:17-32), Adultery (Lev. 18:20,26,27), and Beastiality (Lev. 18:23,26,27) should cause an an automatically repulsive reaction by anyone who has the "mind of Christ," even when the sinning person is to be treated gently.
A sin of perverting a young child caused in Jesus (Matt.:18:6, Mark 9:42, Luke 17:2) a deep, irrevocable, deadly hatred against the offender even though action against the offender was to be delayed.

Yes, and as time goes on we will see evil activists attempting to make more and more of these "socially acceptable" this is already happening in other countries and we saw it here in the U.S. when the ACLU fought to legalize child pornography (New York Vs Ferber, 458 U.S. 747) and protected the monsters at NAMBLA.

That is an interesting video.

Here in Connecticut where I live, the State Supreme Court recently legalized same-sex marriage. There was protest from the public, but not much people could do. On election day we had the chance to vote for a Constitutional Convention where the voters of Connecticut could have outlawed same-sex marriage. The media came out with many commercials against this convention, I saw only one promoting it. The night I voted there were people standing outside the poll who loudly shouted "vote against the convention".
I spoke to quite a few people, most people had no clue what the convention was even about. It got voted down about 65% to 35%, almost exactly the same ratio as the Obama to McCain vote. I am a southerner by birth, from the Bible Belt, it is not easy being a Christian in New England.

Homosexuals seek to change the voting results of the people via activist judges...

PROPOSITION 8 UPDATE:
California Supreme Court Hearing Today

DOWNTOWN SAN DIEGO — As the clock ticked toward today's much-anticipated arguments for and against Proposition 8 before the state Supreme Court, opponents of the initiative rallied for same-sex-marriage rights in downtown San Diego... There was no sign of counter-protesters, but some passers-by murmured their opinions, including one who said, “Didn't we vote on this already?”

Proposition 8, which amends the state constitution to limit marriage to one man and one woman, passed with 52 percent of the vote in November. It was quickly challenged in court.

In San Francisco this morning, Supreme Court justices will hear arguments about the validity of the measure and the same-sex weddings conducted before its approval. The justices will have 90 days to issue rulings.

Hmmm, I wonder what this will do for AIDS statistics around the world...
I sometimes think Sodom & Gomorrah may have burned off partly because of a virus or bacteria. (Gen. 19:25)

U.S. to sign U.N. gay rights declaration
Former President Bush had refused to endorse the measure in December

ASSOCIATED PRESS March 2009 • MSNBC
The Obama administration will endorse a U.N. declaration calling for the worldwide decriminalization of homosexuality that then-President George W. Bush had refused to sign...
According to negotiators, the Bush team had concerns that those parts could commit the federal government on matters that fall under state jurisdiction. In some states, landlords and private employers are allowed to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation; on the federal level, gays are not allowed to serve openly in the military. It was not immediately clear on Tuesday how the Obama administration had come to a different conclusion... MORE HERE:

"...we cannot deny that HIV is a gay disease. We have to own that and face up to that." -- Matt Foreman, former executive director of the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that homosexuality and bisexuality cause 85% of HIV infections in America (“high-risk heterosexual activity” is defined as non-homosexuals -- mostly women -- who had sexual intercourse with a “bisexual.”)

Iowa same-sex marriage ruling spurs activists
llinois state Rep. Greg Harris agreed that the Iowa decision shows the "the values of basic fairness are spreading from state to state." Harris, a Chicago Democrat who is openly gay, has sponsored a bill that would legalize civil unions in Illinois, giving gay couples many of the legal benefits of marriage. The bill passed out of committee in March and now faces a vote on the House floor. Illinois is one of 14 states that restricts marriage to one man and one woman.

I'm saddened by the recent news the college I graduated from is now offering gay/lesbian dorms. I wonder what's next? atheist dorms? how about an israeli or palestinan one so they could have a prank jihad war going on? It appears that 'texas' does not sound so conservative and 'Christian' has been bought and twisted further into a lie already.....
this news brings back segregation. disappointing.
