Gays Win the Grand Prize, or Have They?

In college when we were dating, Steve presented Janice with a card that said, "You win! You win! You win the grand prize!" Janice opened up the card to find the word "Me!"

Well, in our culture today, in our government, schools, entertainment, and in our churches, gays win the grand prize. It's no joke. We don't know why they continue to fuss.They are getting practically everything they say they want. Look around you. Unlike the rest of us, gays are immune to any sort of criticism or negativity. They don't even get warned about the costly and deadly health risks associated with their behaviors anymore. On the contrary, self-identifying, publicly proud gays are a highly pampered and celebrated class of people, even in their Christian congregations.

They can relax now, and we've noticed our detractors at least seem to be doing just that. We certainly don't get the amount of defensive, incoherent, self-justifying hate mail we used to get. At the expense of morality and religion (the two things George Washington proclaimed as indispensable to freedom), everything is falling into place for the prideful, rebellious, sexually confused, lustful, and promiscuous. Even if some people still refuse to publicly condone gay sex---that is, gay marriage---they are going to increasingly let it slide. They'll wink at it. They'll turn the other way. They won't ask. They won't tell. They just won't think about what their gay neighbors, friends, children, relatives, fellow church-goers, teachers, and leaders actually do. Again, congratulations to gay activists. You've done it. You've succeeded in turning just about everyone around you into homosexualists.

Of course the gay movement (which has now made its way into churches where it is renamed and mingled with scripture) doesn't deserve too much credit. Its success was inevitable, what with the oversexed, permissive, secularized, radical feminist, posterity-despising, Godless sexual revolution that gained unprecedented momentum in the 1960s, combined with a complacent, self-centered, materialistic, gullible and weak-faithed public. It actually should be no surprise that homosexuals  haven't had to wait very long at all to become the darlings of the day. Truth be told, they've only had to be the tiniest bit patient. Usually it takes a good deal longer than one generation to accomplish what they have. After all, the homosexualist agenda is a weighty one, that is, to bury most all of the history of mankind, to erase the accumulated wisdom of the ages, to shred the Word of God, to mask reality and biology, to place value on junk science rather than real science, and to remake Christian congregations into secular humanist gay-straight alliance clubs, in short, to turn an entire mainstream culture topsy-turvy. Although forces have been at work for the last few hundred years, the current generation has succeeded in accomplishing the above mostly in the last 10 or 15 years.

If you like to congratulate people on the basis of how much Machiavellian power and dominion and cunning and persistence and money they can amass and utilize, the gay movement, like many another revolutions in the history of mankind, deserves unending congratulations. On the other hand, if you are the kind of person who admires people according to their self-sacrifice, intelligence, and courage in valuing, acquiring, and upholding knowledge, truth, and morality, congratulations for today's gay movement will not be coming from you.

Yes, the only item on the gay agenda they'll never get to check off is the winning of the tacit approval of the remaining true followers of Christ, not even if these faithful are called horrible names, are intimidated into silence, are ruined financially or socially, are marginalized or even ex-communicated from their churches, lose family members, are forced to abdicate their religious rights, or are fined or gagged or punished or thrown in jail. Even as events like these play out, there are those thinking believers whose hearts will never be won. No one can ever stop us from praying and worshiping God in our hearts and relying alone on Christ. No one can conquer another person's soul unless allowed to. Sadly, as in Geothe's Faust, some have sold, and will sell, their souls. But the bullying tactics employed by homosexualists, disguised in pseudo-religious sophistries or not, only make true and striving followers of Christ stronger.

Homosexualists and their ilk will never conquer the hearts of truly Godly people, people who know right from wrong, with the common sense to realize that sexual immorality of all kinds in thought and deed is spiritually, physically, psychologically, and emotionally harmful, people who truly love their neighbor and wish the eternal best for them, people who mourn to see others ruining their lives and turning against God.

Of course God-fearing people can easily be wiped off the face of the earth if the enemies of truth and righteousness fully get their way. Aside from genocide, like a science fiction novel, in one generation humankind can be forced into tyranny, indoctrination, and slavery of any and all sorts.To a great degree this is already happening, given the lies, temptations, and suggestions that are being force-fed to the rising generation. As Hugh Nibley once intimated, we believe we have arrived to the point where this earth life is no longer a fair test for many young and vulnerable people---that is if they are allowed to be born at all. For their sake at least, let us all pray the Lord will come soon.

It could well be that we'll all be wiped out first. The Lord promises us safety and prosperity only if the people of this land keep his commandments. As a people we most certainly are not doing that. We're certainly not keeping the commandment to repent, that is, forsake our sins and turn back to God. Nope. We just keep softening toward sin, making concessions and compromises. We just get more and more humanist, secular, worldly, prideful. It just so happens that at this time sworn enemies of America have vowed to obliterate us, and homosexuals are at the top of their list. Christians and homosexuals alike are being executed, beheaded, thrown off buildings just on the other side of the world. The way things are going on a global scale, maybe homosexualists don't deserve much congrats after all. If only for their own sakes they ought to be championing religious freedom to their dying breath.
