I think everyone has heard about the recent Phil Robertson interview where he spoke out about his religious beliefs concerning homosexuality. He used his right of free speech to voice what he believes and then was persecuted for it. But have you heard about all the hatred that has been spewed out against him. In his interview he states that he doesn’t hate homosexuals but he does state that he stands by what the Bible says as God’s word. In the Bible it leaves no doubt that God hates the act of homosexuality but just as it says in the Bible, Phil doesn’t hate the people who are practicing homosexuals. God hates sin, ALL sin and it is obvious from the following scriptures that homosexuality is considered a sin by God.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10
“9Do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! Fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, male prostitutes, sodomites, thieves, the greedy, drunkards, revilers, robbers–none of these will inherit the kingdom of God.”
“22Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.”
“26For this reason God gave them up to degrading passions. Their women exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural, and in the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the due penalty for their error.”
1 Timothy 1:8-10
“8Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it legitimately. This means understanding that the law is laid down not for the innocent but for the lawless and disobedient, for the godless and sinful, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their father or mother, for murderers, fornicators, sodomites, slave traders, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to the sound teaching.”
Tell me again from the above scripture how God doesn’t think homosexuality is a sin. Phil even referred to the scripture in his interview but yet they attack him for saying what God stated over 2000 years ago. If you have a problem with saying that homosexuality is a sin, then you should take that up with God because it is God’s words that condemn homosexuality as a sin, it is not Phil Robertson’s words. Phil is just the messenger.
If you don’t think that what the Bible says is what God says then you can’t believe in the Bible. If you don’t believe in the Bible then why should you care if homosexuality is considered a sin or not? If you don’t believe in the Bible, God, heaven or hell then what does it matter to you what he or even God says about any of it? This isn’t about him being intolerant toward gays, instead it is about you being intolerant of Christian beliefs.
The real haters are those who are opposed to him voicing his opinion and God’s words. They can’t tolerate listening to someone voicing anything against what they believe. When anyone says anything that they don’t like it is considered hate speech because they hate to hear it. Since when is it okay in America to censor someone else just because you don’t like what they are saying. Isn’t that why we have the right to free speech? When someone retaliates against you just because they don’t like what you said that is infringing on your right to free speech.
A&E has every right to fire an employee but do they have the right to fire someone on the basis of something that they said off duty? If that is the case then I fear that we are all endanger of being fired at anytime. Would you want to be fired just for saying that you didn’t agree with another lifestyle? We are all entitled to our opinions and we all should be entitled to voice those same opinions without fear of retaliation. But in America that now only applies if you have liberal ideals. Liberal ideals include no tolerance for any other ideals, and for them to hear any other ideals is very painful. Liberals and sinners have a lot in common because it is painful for both of them to hear the truth.
It is painful for sinners to hear the truth and pain always wants to retaliate with more pain. That is why they speak out against the word of God, they want retribution for being challenged and set straight. That is also why so many subvert God’s word, they want be able to sin without being challenged. However, it isn’t for us to decide what is or isn’t sin. We should always leave that up to God, and God has already let his feelings be known about sin through the scriptures. With that said, it wasn’t Phil Robertson saying that homosexuality is a sin, but God. Therefore, you should go on a rant against God, not Phil.
Sinners always put up a fight to justify their acts and they will say almost anything to divert the attention away from themselves. This can be seen when you watch an interview that aired on Good Morning America this morning. The program used commentator Howard Bragman to voice the left’s opinion of Phil’s interview. During the segment Mr. Bragman stated that Phil was hateful toward gays and African Americans. Isn’t strange that he referred to African-Americans when the entire discussion was about sexual preferences, not racial preferences?
Mr. Bragman also stated that Phil “used his religion as a weapon, not as the tool it was meant to be”. Tell me how he used his religion as a weapon? All he did was state God’s words and he didn’t beat up any one. He didn’t say anything hateful or mean, nor did he attack anyone. He didn’t advocate any violence toward anyone. He didn’t say that anyone should be forced to do anything. Let me repeat, he didn’t say anything hateful. Saying that homosexuality is a sin isn’t hateful, but factual according to the Bible.
Mr. Bragman’s comments are an obvious display of how the left will do anything to vilify anyone with Christian morals. The only way that you could justify Mr. Bragman’s comment is by saying that African-Americans are all gay, but we all know that would be a lie. Therefore, the only way to validate his comment is by saying Mr. Bragman is a hate-baiter. He is trying to spread the hatred for Christian values from the gay community into the African-American community. The left have no limit when it comes to spreading their hatred for people with Christian morals.
Mr. Roberson did make a reference to how the civil rights movement put the African-Americans into a worse position than they were in before the movement. That isn’t hateful but sympathetic toward them. He isn’t saying that they are bad or doing anything bad, but that the movement has hurt them. He didn’t elaborate much on this subject but it was enough for Mr. Bragman to label him a racist even though his statements weren’t aimed at the African-Americans, but the welfare system that has enslaved them.
The left will never be satisfied until Christianity is silenced and eliminated from the American landscape. They would however settle for a corrupted view of Christianity, but they will never settle for the real deal straight from the Bible. Christians however will never settle for any corruption of God’s words because any corruption is just as bad as total corruption.
Christians are tolerant of others, contrary to what the media says. Christians do speak out against homosexuality and many other Biblical sins, but Christians also recognize the fact that it is everyone’s right to live their life any way they wish. Just don’t expect Christians to accept or participate in it.
If Christians were intolerant like the media says, then they would be out there creating their own jihads. Christians tolerate a lot in this world but they are not tolerant of the corruption of God’s word. But even then Christians don’t issue death warrants for corrupt cartoons and blasphemy against their beliefs. For the left to say that homosexuality isn’t a sin is to say that the Bible is false doctrine or that God is wrong about the subject. Either way they are rejecting the word of God, and as such that makes them sinners in God’s eyes. They are in the same sinful boat as the homosexuals sailing through life waiting to shipwreck on the shores of hell.
I guess I’m considered hateful toward gays for stating the obvious about homosexuality, and according to Mr. Bragman I am also hateful to African-Americans for agreeing to the fact that God says that homosexuality is a sin and that African-Americans are worse off today than they were before. I never knew that and I am so thankful to Mr. Bragman’s loving words of idiocy.
As much as I love the Duck Dynasty program I feel that I can’t in good conscience watch anything on the A&E network. I will be blocking that channel on my TV and cable box. I can only hope that the Robertson family can find a TV channel with tolerance toward Christianity so that they can continue more of their moral entertainment. Heaven knows that the airways need more Christian entertainment. I ask anyone else who feels like I do that they do the same. If you don’t agree then go right on with your hateful intolerance of Christian values at your own peril.
