Anti-Straight, Anti-Christ Op-Ed? YES. Consider the Source

There is a lot of talk among church-going people about how everybody must accept nontraditional gender identities and sexual proclivities in others as normal and harmless and, well, best. One example is an op-ed that appeared in the Nov. 28, 2015 Salt Lake Tribune, "Time has come for a new paradigm in gender/sexuality debate." This article, written by nine people, LGBT-affirming therapists in partnership with gay-pride organization leaders, some of whom are LDS or former LDS, is a smarmy, slimy sophistry filled with psycho-babble and emotionally-loaded wording that contradicts itself as a matter of course. Even as a weak nod is given to truth and reality in a few spots, the emphasis is pro-homosexuality and the argument is for the weakness, as the title indicates. These people are definitively in favor of normalizing and promoting homosexuality. But it goes way beyond that. We'll come right out and say it. You don't have to go very far beneath the surface to find that these writers are also anti-straight and anti-Christ, whether they realize it or not.

The message given in this op-ed is that change therapy for those with gender identity disorder and unwanted homosexual tendencies is unethical and should be outlawed in Utah as it has been in five other states. No age of the sufferer is stipulated, which indicates that these writers would be against even a vulnerable young child who had been abused and initiated into homosexualism being given any sort of therapy to heal these horrific wounds. As our friend, ex-transgender Walt Heyer points out, the language in this op-ed is pro-advocate speak, as in pro-homosexuality, no questions asked. "As such, if adopted, will keep in place the high attempted suicides because it prevents effective treatment of psycho therapies that deal with a range of disorders (emphasis ours)." In other words, these activists want to shut down healing, healthful, and pro-heterosexuality treatment for those who desire it, for those who have been damaged and confused. No, these homosexualists do not want to get the bottom of people's deep destructive problems. These "professional" therapists and supposed followers of Christ as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints care nothing about sin and repentance and redemption. They just want to further their advocacy of homosexuality. How cruel to exploit and ignore those with miserable unwanted homosexual thought patterns and habits. How cruel, to wish to prohibit sound effective psychological and spiritual help for these people. The people they are ignoring and exploiting are the ones who seek out and benefit from such help, not those who are stubbornly self-determined and satisfied with self-destructing.

Note that at this juncture homosexualist activists have pushed the public a long way past "understanding same-gender attraction," and on to encouraging outlandish and sinful human sexual behaviors such as transgenderism and gay marriage. And what is encouraged will increase. Oh yes, we're supposed to support a person's self-determination as any one of the 56 genders (according to facebook at this moment), yes, and support them "in their right to explore, define, articulate and live out their own identity" across the "broad spectrum of sexual gender identities and expressions," if we're to switch to these writers' new paradigm. That sort of talk could be straight from Alfred Kinsey's 1940s notebook; Kinsey was a horrific pervert/pedophile/pederast and pseudo-sex-scientist who, along with many other unspeakable acts, sexually abused babies (claimed to bring babies to orgasm) for "research."

Note also how one-sided this view is. People are only to be allowed to self-determine as homosexual, transgender, or any other alternative gender/sexual orientation with all the trimmings, corresponding cross-dressing, mutilating surgeries, and sexual behaviors included. But no homosexual is to be supported in his self-determination to become heterosexual. If a homosexual would rather self-determine as heterosexual, he must not be allowed to get professional help. That would be unethical. This is what this op-ed is saying. Anyone who decides to be homo instead of hetero should be given support, but not the other way around. No one is to be allowed to decide to be hetero instead of homo. No one is to be allowed to self-determine as heterosexual and get help to find peace with it. That kind of help has to be outlawed. Apparently, heterosexuality does not appear on Kinsey's spectrum! This is what we mean by this view being anti-straight.

Now for anti-Christ. All morality comes from Christ. There is no morality without Christ. Atheists ignore this fact. They admit that humans should be basically orderly and moral but can't say where that notion or that desire comes from. Can it come from evolution, that is, mistakes in mutation? Of course not. As C. S. Lewis put it, that's like expecting a glass of spilt milk to make rules for itself. So we have these upstarts writing this op-ed preaching to all the rest of us a new morality. And yet the principle of homosexualism, both in the form of  mental lust and bodily behavior, is summarily and plainly condemned in the holy scriptures these same church-goers ostensibly hold dear, read every day, and pack off to Sunday meetings.

Let's get down to brass tacks and consider that source. These anti-straight ideas are not coming from God, so where are they coming from? First the softening on homosexuality, then the recognizing of  it as an immutable "identity," then the multiple "identities," then the push to celebrate the expressing of the identities and behaviors, and now the campaign to jump on the band wagon and get change therapy outlawed here in Utah as it has been in other states. Where are these people getting their ammunition? How dare they express and push these radical ideas? Why are they emboldened to advocate for sin and reject Christ?

We submit that these people would not have one word to say promoting homosexuality if it weren't for the strategy laid and carried out by the Godless sexual revolution being systematically instigated especially in the last few decades. If it weren't for the momentum created by false information, fear, and intimidation, by bold hedonists and bad judges, by politics and huge amounts of money, by an oversexed entertainment culture and free-love hippies turned college professors, by secular humanism and sociology usurping real religion, our outspoken local LDS homosexualists wouldn't have a leg to stand on. There would be no gay pride. The APAs would still have homosexuality in their manuals of disorders. Godly morality would still be supported in courts and government and schools. Our entertainment and education systems would still value and reflect virtue. Churches would still rightly call homosexuality a sinful vice in all its forms, both in principle and practice.

Our op-ed writers need to reflect on, if it's possible they don't know, from whom they are taking their marching orders. They need to know upon what principalities and powers they establish their great pronouncements. It isn't science or biology or health or wisdom or experience or justice or goodness or righteousness or God or Christ or compassion. It is fallen man, the pleasures of the wicked world, the changeable philosophies of men, the sophistries of hedonists, the power of flatterers and exploiters and predators and money and wickedness.

We wonder, have these writers of this op-ed been to San Francisco? Have these people seen the sadomasochists and sodomites doing their thing in the public streets on parade? For that matter, have they seen a Salt Lake City gay pride parade or gay youth prom attended by adult transgenders? Have they been to a GLSEN workshop in Massachusettes where homosexualists teach 14-year-olds all about how to perform varieties of perverse sexual acts, Massachusettes, where adult perverts recruit and proposition minors via the school system? Have they visited a weekend chemsex orgy in a nice London apartment where gays who are otherwise gainfully employed citizens continually inject themselves with a new drug made of drain cleaner and floor stripper because they'd rather die than have sober gay sex? Our LDS activists give zero warning or condemnation of these or any other homosexual behaviors. The world's promotion and practice of these unlimited and perverse sexual notions and behaviors is where these respected op-eders get their motivation and information and emboldenment. There's no other source available on earth for these anti-straight, anti-Christ ideas. And it's the devil's territory.

Great article. It's one thing to love and endure with gays and transgenderists in all their forms, but when efforts to bring them back to the hetro lifestyle are discouraged, one must question what's going on. There should at least be a fair playing field of choice for those who wish to encourage the hetro lifestyle. There certainly is a lot of pro gay and alternative lifestyle choices pushed from many different organizations. Of course, the moral and Biblical aspects should be obvious to any Christian. Quite a 'no brainer'.
