“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

Homofascism and the Dark Days Brewing for America

Those of you who regularly tune in to this radio broadcast are not surprised when I say America has been taken over by communists, and along with the rest of the world, is spinning down into the hellish abyss of the Last Days foretold in the Bible.  Satan’s global regime is smoothly working its sinister way into place, and the days ahead will grow ever darker.

I know there are many, many people who do not want to hear such words and do not believe what I say is true.  There are many people who are content to keep their heads buried firmly in the sand while all hell breaks loose around them.  I am sorry about that, and I can not help them.  The fact is that here in America we have been in a collective sleep for many decades while the termites of hell have steadily and deeply gnawed into the delicate foundation of morality upon which our nation rested.  That foundation may be too badly damaged to rebuild at this point.

Look at the events of late, and tell me how we are to recapture not just the foundation of limited power of our government, but the soul of our entire society.  As you know, government corruption is only a symptom.  Our American culture is diseased through and through.  People have rejected God and embraced hedonism and whatever vice suits their fancy.  Because the Lord has been thrust from our public square, from our schools, and in many cases even from our churches, we are seeing a proliferation of people who believe the lie and whose love is growing cold.

Look at the “occupationist” degenerates.  If this organized and richly funded movement of the communist Left does anything, it clearly illustrates that America is a house deeply and irrevocably divided.  As I have written before, America’s great unbridgeable divide leaves us ripe for destruction.  For where there is division, there can be no unity, and where there is no unity, there is brokenness, and a broken house can not stand.

As a Christian, I know that there are but two forces in this world—the forces of God and the forces of Satan.  There are only two camps, and every man is a member of one or the other.  We are seeing the forces of Satan coalescing in the “occupationist” movement.  We are seeing the fruits of a godless public education system in the young people who know not what they ask.  These young people, along with the deluded mature adults, senselessly hate the freedom and unlimited opportunity America has given them, mindless that what they believe is a lie.  Unseeing, they march and chant and demand to be enslaved, yet they know it not.

We are also seeing a metastasizing boldness in the radical homosexual movement.  The radical homosexuals are part of the same dark camp as the “occupationist” loons in their hatred of truth, and their engine has been given a shot of nitrous oxide since the advent of the Obama administration.

Barack Obama is nothing if not fully on-board with the radical homosexual agenda.  He has appointed a staggering number of homosexuals to his administration, the courts and other positions of authority, including an abominable appointment of a radical homosexual to his faith-based advisory council.  Despicably, Obama and his injustice department have also refused to defend the Defense of Marriage Act, which rightly defines marriage as between a man and a woman.

Thus it is no surprise that we are watching a very bold monster of radical homosexualism pounding its way across our land seeking to devour our rights to freedom of speech and expression and freedom of religion.

Brick thrown through the glass door at Christian Liberty Academy. Reprinted with permission from Americans for Truth

One of the latest examples of homosexual viciousness was reported on Saturday by WorldNetDaily’s Drew Zahn.

As he wrote,

“In the early morning hours, on the eve of a banquet designed to expose the homosexual activist agenda, security cameras on the campus of the Christian Liberty Academy, a school run by the Church of Christian Liberty in Arlington Heights, Ill., captured what may be a prominent example of an anti-Christian ‘hate crime.’

An unknown vandal or vandals threw chunks of concrete bricks through the school’s entryway with a message protesting the banquet, which was planned by Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, or AFTAH, to honor pro-family activist and author of ‘The Pink Swastika,’ Dr. Scott Lively.

Upon the concrete bricks were written the words ‘Shut down Lively,’ and the vandals included a note threatening more violence if the church and school didn’t stop hosting such ‘homophobic’ guests.

‘This is just a sample of what we will do if you don’t shut down Scott Lively and AFTAH,” the note reads. ‘F— Scott Lively. Quit the homophobic s—!’”

Don’t you just admire the behavior of the oh-so-tolerant Left?  This is quite disturbing.  Here we have brazen militant homosexual radicals who are so degenerately desperate to gain an unattainable legitimacy for their vile behavior that they are willing to engage in violence to intimidate those who stand against their wicked agenda.  Too often we find that their barbaric tactics succeed in cowing Christians and others in leadership positions in business and elsewhere.

The good news here is that these “homofascists,” as Americans For Truth About Homosexuality President Peter LaBarbera refers to them, are not succeeding in their hellish attempts to intimidate Mr. LaBarbera, the Christian Liberty Academy or Dr. Lively.  They are standing firmly in the face of the maniacal hatred of the radical homosexual movement, despite the vandalism as well as an anonymous “press release” that threatened further retaliation if Scott Lively’s appearance were not cancelled.

As Drew Zahn’s report continued,

“Hours later, a ‘press release’ was sent by email to AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera, Church of Christian Liberty Pastor Calvin Lindstrom and the Chicago Independent Media Center claiming responsibility for the attack.

‘In the early morning hours of October 15th, we put two chunks of concrete through the glass windows and doors of the Christian Liberty Academy,’ claims the author of the release, identifying himself only by a vulgar nickname.  ‘We did this because at 6 p.m. today they will be hosting an event organized by the homophobic hate group Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, that [sic] will be presenting an award to Scott Lively.’

The statement continues, ‘These chunks of concrete were thrown through these windows and doors for two reasons: to show that there is a consequence for hatred and homophobia in our community and to directly cause this event to be shut down. If this event is not shut down, and the homophobic day trainings do not end, the Christian Liberty Academy will continue to be under constant attack.’”

I spoke with Mr. LaBarbera on the phone on Monday, and he pointed out that these are the same tactics that terrorists use—claiming responsibility after the fact of an act of terrorism.  As yet, these cowardly miscreants have only claimed responsibility but have not openly identified themselves, if indeed there is more than one of them.

We see that these homosexual radicals, just like all the members of the various factions of the Left, are more than willing to break laws and to vandalize or destroy property to push their twisted agenda.  They spit on the law, and they feast on a hatred of the truth and those who proclaim it, but they apparently see no duplicity in their profuse, false accusations of “hate” toward those of us who tell the truth about the sin of homosexuality.  It is more important than ever that we strongly refuse to be intimidated or silenced by these people and stand against them, as Mr. LaBarbera, Dr. Lively and the Christian Liberty Academy are doing.

Again, from Drew Zahn’s piece,

“‘In my 20 plus years of pro-family activism,’ Lively told WND, ‘I have never seen such a brazen act of ‘gay’ militancy.’

‘We see the homosexual agenda is becoming so arrogant in its growing power,’ LaBarbera added, ‘but we’ve never seen this before, what we would call ‘homofascism’ being raised to the level of domestic terrorism.’

The Christian Liberty Academy has hosted several events for Americans For Truth over the years, including last year’s three-day Truth Academy, which drew a large protest led by the Chicago-based Gay Liberation Network, or GLN. The GLN has also announced that it will protest the AFTAH banquet.

‘The GLN has always targeted us,’ LaBarbera told WND. ‘But right now we don’t know who did this. It could be just a rogue activist. It could be just one person. We don’t know, and I wouldn’t want to link the attack to any group unless we had evidence linking it.’

Investigating the attack has been turned over to the police, but Pastor Lindstrom told WND the church has no plans to cancel the banquet.

When asked how the church would respond to the attack, Lindstrom answered, ‘In prayer. The Lord is our ultimate defender, and we trust the Lord will give us safety and will bring whoever did this to justice.’

‘A lot of Christians cower in fear before the power and influence of the homosexual lobby,’ LaBarbera added. ‘It’s not helpful. If you demonstrate you can be intimidated, you reward the bully. The ‘gay’ bully has been rewarded enough times, so many times they think they can get their way. We hope more churches will refuse to be bullied and will stand up to tell the truth about the homosexual agenda.'”

This is an ongoing story, and you can visit the Americans for Truth website for updates and for more information which I have not included in this broadcast.

We desperately need more Christian culture warriors like Peter LaBarbera and Scott Lively.  They inspire other Christians to stand in the face of the relentless assault on our children, on marriage and our freedoms by the radical homosexual movement.  Please pray for these men who face constant, malicious and slanderous attacks from a well-funded homosexual machine.  And consider financially supporting groups like Americans for Truth who do not have anywhere near the amount of money that the numerous and wealthy homo-activist organizations do.

As the days grow ever darker and the minions of hell unite in greater and greater power, let us continue to band together and speak out against those evil forces that abound in these treacherous times.  Let us also not lose heart in the face of our nation’s crumbling from within, because, as Christians, we know this is ultimately not our home; however, we will continue to battle for the cause of righteous Truth and for the sake of this great nation as we await the Lord’s return.

  1. OK, who’s really guilty of “hate” here?

    (1) Those who would discourage others from continuing life-controlling behavior patterns that have been shown conclusively to be unhealthy both in their roots and their results?

    Or (2) those who vandalize, slander and attempt to silence (1) out of wanting to continue said life-controlling behavior patterns (which no one is technically telling them they can’t continue anyway)?

    “Gays” have gotten to the point where they can mostly continue their behavior in private without being opposed or persecuted. The big problem comes in when they insist that the rest of the world wholeheartedly accept, endorse, enable and validate it, in spite of most of said rest of the world having very strong and valid reasons not to.

  2. The homofascists warning was not just violence, Gina.  It’s “terroristic threat,” which is a serious felony here in Texas, and, I’m sure in every other state.  These scum need to be hunted down and put away for decades, if not for life.

  3. Yes, of course; and that’s why that although they claim responsibility, they dare  not identify themselves.

  4. Let me say this really clearly: Scott Lively believes gay people belong in jail, and that it’s better they be killed than receive civil rights. He went to Uganda and helped stir up an anti-gay pogrom that resulted in, among other things, a prominent gay activist having his brains bashed out with an iron bar – and then at his funeral, a “Christian” preacher denounced him to his friends. That’s what Lively did. 

    Now, according to your Christian lights, perhaps that is acceptable, since it was done in the name of your god. I don’t know. I do know that in any logical world, a brick through a window would be regarded as a less awful crime than murder, but then, your homicidal god has, throughout history, merrily killed innocent Egyptian boys, blameless infants in Sodom and Gomorrah, and a wide variety of other people and animals that teed him off, so perhaps you feel otherwise. 

    I see that – despite the former USSR being a major purveyor of homophobia, and most other Communist nations being no friend of gay rights – you’ve decided the LGBT movement is a communist plot, so clearly, things like history and logic mean little to you. Come to think of it, under fascist regimes, whether the Third Re*ch, Mussolini’s Italy, Franco’s Spain, or latter=day fascists in South America, gays were persecuted, so “homofascists” is kinda like “N*zi Jews.” But whatever. A sprinkler repairer clearly knows more about history AND human sexuality than I do.

    I was just reading about yet another lonely, miserable gay teen who, shunned by his peers, killed himself. You, however, have your self-righteous panties in a twist about a couple of broken windows. Not broken lives, not broken skulls. Have fun with all that turn-the-other-cheek compassion, sweet thing. 
    Oh, and watch out for the fluoride in your water. Satan put it there!

  5. As a gay secular Jew, I’m somewhat touchy about misuse of the word “fascist,” as in your “homofascist.” So let me simply point out that when the N*zis solidified their hold on Germany, they cited the “decadent” gays’ as a threat to the health of the nation, destroying Berlin’s vibrant gay culture and throwing lesbians and gays into concentration camps, as well as performing horrific medical experiments on them. Gays fared little better under the fascist regimes in Italy and Spain, both of which stood in league with Christianity and against Marxism. And certainly South American fascist regimes were no friend of gay rights, while standing foursquare against Marxism and for the traditional family. 

    And, let’s not forget, the rationales for persecution of Jews – they were in league with Communists, they were anti-Christian, they were undermining society – also sound a heckuva lot like your rant.So while you have the right to say any dumb, paranoid thing you want to, and while some fascists – like some of any group, even yours –  have been gay, it’s certainly historically accurate to say that actual, historical fascist regimes would endorse your position on gay rights.

    Oh, I know…words, history, and logic are minor quibbles when you have Yaweh on your side.

  6. You are a liar and a slanderer of Scott Lively, but that is the norm for radical homosexuals who have no truth in them.

    From the WND column linked in my piece is the truth of the matter:

    The press release claiming responsibility for the attack on the Christian Liberty Academy even blamed Lively for murder:

    “In 2009, Lively and other American homophobes spoke at a conference in Uganda called ‘Exposing the Truth About Homosexuality and the Homosexual Agenda,'” the release asserts. “This conference stirred the anti-gay atmosphere that already exists in Uganda, a country with laws that punish homosexual acts with up to 14 years in prison. As a direct result of this conference, participants have drafted a bill that, if passed, would increase the sentencing for homosexual acts to life sentences and execution and make it a legal responsibility to report homosexuals in the community.

    It continues, “On Jan. 26, 2011, Ugandan gay rights activist David Kisule was murdered after being outed in a newspaper ad that listed names and photos of queer people in the community as a part of an anti-gay campaign that is a result of Scott Lively’s visit.”

    The GLN took up a similar complaint about Lively’s time in Uganda in a letter to prominent Chicago pastor Erwin Lutzer, urging Lutzer to decline speaking at the AFTAH banquet because Lively and LaBarbera allegedly “support violence [against homosexuals] outright.”

    Lively, however, made public a letter to LaBarbera in which he countered claims about fomenting “hate” and “violence” in Uganda:

    “I am a Bible-believing Christian who abhors violence against anyone, and has never advocated violence or hatred against homosexuals,” Lively asserts. “During my 2009 trip [to Uganda] I also addressed members of the Ugandan Parliament in their national assembly hall. My advice to the MPs regarding the law they were contemplating but had not yet drafted was to focus on rehabilitation and not punishment. I urged them to become the first government in the world to develop a state-sponsored recovery system for homosexuality on the model we have in the United States for alcoholism.

    “In contradiction to my advice, a few months after the seminar an MP introduced a bill to criminalize homosexuality,” he continues. “The terms of the bill were harsh, as is very common in African countries, including capital punishment. … I do not support capital punishment for any sex crimes, let alone simple homosexuality, which I view as a treatable behavioral disorder, and so I opposed the bill. I was nevertheless accused in the international media of not only endorsing the bill, but of advocating for it.”

    As for the murder of David Kato Kisule, Lively points out there’s no cause to blame him for the crime.

    “Not once, but twice, when supposed homosexual activists in Uganda were killed, it was implied by the liberal Western media that I was responsible,” Lively asserts. “In both cases the deaths were later proved to be unrelated to the passions surrounding the Ugandan bill. The first turned out to be the work of pagan witch doctors involved in some bizarre ritual. The second, involving the grisly murder of Ugandan homosexual activist David Kato [Kisule], turned out to be a crime of passion by a male prostitute whom Kato had bailed out of jail and taken to be his houseboy.”

    He concludes, “I must, however, exhort my fellow Christians not to allow themselves to be influenced by the propaganda nor intimidated by the harassment tactics. It has always been the case that the cause of Christ is advanced only through selfless courage in the face of determined opposition.”

  7. While I do not believe that Lively openly supports violence, he has said in regards to the death penalty bill, “I do not support the proposed anti-homosexuality law as written. It does not emphasize rehabilitation over punishment and the punishment that it calls for is unacceptably harsh. However, if the offending sections were sufficiently modified, the proposed law would represent an encouraging step in the right direction. As one of the first laws of this century to recognize that the destructiveness of the ‘gay’ agenda warrants opposition by government, it would deserve support from Christian believers and other advocates of marriage-based culture around the world.

    “Like I said, I would not have written the bill this way. But what it comes down to is a question of lesser of two evils, you know like many of the political choices that we have. What is the lesser of two evils here? To allow the American and European gay activists to continue to do to that country what they’ve done here? Or to have a law that may be overly harsh in some regards for people who are indulging in voluntary sexual conduct? I THINK THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS IS FOR THE BILL TO GO THROUGH.” (Emphasis mine.) 

    That’s right, he doesn’t actually, really, truly support gays being executed. But if it’s a choice between dead gays and gay rights, he’s on the side of execution as the lesser of two evils.  I suppose it’s encouraging to know that he thinks killing people for having sex is overly harsh…though acceptable in a pinch. Hey, if we’re a Satanic threat to all civilization, what’s a little killing in the service of the Lord? 

    If the death of Kato was not actually anti-gay, I stand corrected. (It might be well to point out that the Ugandan police reported a “well-known thief” confessed, and there is AFAIK nothing but an anonymous report to suggest a sexual motive, which doesn’t stop Lively from  conclusively citing a “homosexual panic” explanation.)  Shortly before he was killed, a Ugandan tabloid published the pictures of 100 gays and called for them to be executed, but we However, there are plenty of other well-documented homophobic murders out there, and while you folks are all bent out of shape about bricks, actual gay people are being beaten and killed by bashers. Take, for instance, the 62-year-old gay man beaten to death by slur-shouting teenage girls in Trafalgar Square. Homophobic rhetoric like yours is the theory, bashing is the practice. Own it.

    I will say that, if anything, his rhetoric is less violence-provoking than your apocalyptic silliness. The very idea that the country with the greatest inequality of wealth in the industrialized world is a Communist state indicates an unhinging from reality that makes me giggle and/or shudder. Or don’t you know what “Communist” means?

  8. While you are caressing yourself with adoration for your supposed qualifications in history, logic or whatever, I find it revealing that you justify acts of terrorism by the gay agenda on the premise that gays (not Christians) are the real victims, bolstering your position with lies. If you are offended by the association with Fascism, then stop using fascist tactics. If the shoe fits …

    In a confrontation with people who called themselves Jews, Jesus said that even though they may physically descend from Abraham, they are the offspring of the Devil — the father of lies — (John 8:31-47). In verse 47 Jesus said, “He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.” If you have the chutzpah to call yourself a Jew, you should have the courage to read the Tanakh to find out what Adonai expects of his chosen people. If you were a real Jew, you wouldn’t love yourself more than the God who created you.

    Gina! Thank you and God bless you for shedding the light of truth. The darkness does not comprehend it.

  9. According to reports I have read (including liberal sources like the UK Guardian and CNN–very friendly toward the homosexual agenda), Kato’s gardner Enock Nsubuga nas confessed to the crime.

    Motive? Nsubuga said Kato promised to pay Nsubuga for having sex with him. When Kato reneged, Nsubuga beat him to death with a hammer. This would harmonize with reports that money and other items were stolen from the house.

    I don’t see how Lively telling the truth about a dangerous and immoral sexual practice led Nsubuga to kill Kato after not getting paid for having homosexual sex with Kato. Rather, it sounds like the typical misdirection employed by homosexual activists to demonize those who tell the truth about their behavior and play the victim card.

    Incidentally, Lively is also on record stating that he thought the Ugandan legislation was too harsh, and should steer homosexuals toward therapy rather than incarceration or punishment. Given that homosexual behavior was listed as a disorder until the American medical community caved to raw political intimidation by homosexual activists in 1973, this seems completely appropriate. If someone is having trouble coming to terms with the obvious physical and scientific evidence that the human sex organs were designed to be used in a heterosexual manner, then the humane thing to do would be to help the person adjust to reality.

    Homosexuals experience great misery and suffering (elevated rates of AIDS transmission, as well as other STDs, anal cancer, hepatitis, depression, substance abuse, suicide and more) due to their sexual disorientation. You can’t make a person come to terms with a reality they don’t want to accept (as evidenced by many people with a variety of mental dysfunctions), but it is far more humane to try to help them than it is to pat them on the back and affirm their delusion.

    That’s nothing but moral cowardice.

  10. Typical misrepresentation and misdirection…

    1. Assuming that all people who consider homosexuality in some way wrong automatically must therefore directly support violence against gays. WRONG.

    2. Assuming that persecution of gays is the #1 cause of suicide and drug abuse among them. WRONG; their own inner conflict is, whether in the presence or absence of persecution.

    3. Blaming God (who you apparently consider fictitious anyway) for things that (1) he justly did in response to human rebellion; (2) he would provide justice for in the afterlife (“blameless infants”); or (3)he didn’t even do (“merrily killed innocent Egyptian boys”?). WRONG, and betraying a lack of any attempt to actually understand either the nature of God or of sin.

    P.S.: Your FSM avatar is revealing, though what it reveals about you is not what you’d like to think it does.

  11. What is the definition of “fascist”? Webster’s defines it as “a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control.”

    That is precisely what homosexual activists are attempting here in America and worldwide. They do not seek “tolerance” nor are they satisfied with “acceptance.” They have made it clear they will stand for nothing less that complete legitimization and celebration of their immoral and unhealthy sexual practices, and they expect all other members of society to affirm them in their sexual disorientation.

    As was the case with the National Socialists (Nazis) in Germany, they have made it clear that they will use violence, property damage and intimidation to achieve their goals when political power is not yet within their grasp, and once political power is within their grasp, they will use government force to require people to go along or pay the price.

    You might want to check your history on the homosexual SA “Brownshirts” as well as Hitler’s ideas of racial superiority with regard to Jews. You’ll find nothing of substance there that is in harmony with Christian doctrine.

  12. Thank you, Mr. Day!

  13. I used to be on the fence about the homosexual issue, but the various articles dealing with the homosexual agenda on Dakota Voice (as well as other places) has convinced me that encouraging this sort of behavior is very unwise and dangerous.
     
    It’s sad that people resort to such tactics and plug their ears when they’re told the truth about the destructive consequences of their behavior; and it seems like, as you and others have pointed out (especially since that B4U-ACT conference) things are only going to get worse.

    As a side note, you and Mr. Ellis know a great deal about America and its history. I’ve been trying to find articles that discuss the steady decline in morality, especially in regards to media such as comic books and television shows; and articles discussing how, for all the racism and misogyny, our society was better off back in our God-fearing days than it is today. There are many people who say that those God-fearing days were not as great as nostalgia will tell people (based on the aforemention racism and misogyny) but I would like information that compares the past with the present.

    I have run into a bit of a road block. Do you know of any good sources that deal with these issues?

  14. I’m very touched that the material at Dakota Voice has been helpful to you in working this issue out in your own mind, and grateful that you took the time to let us know.

    It’s true that every time in history has its dark paragraphs and pages, and America sadly has hers as you pointed out. What a pity that we had such high ideas but, while mostly reaching them, often fell so short of those ideals in how we sometimes treated people. What a pity that our culture’s high moral standards wasn’t made perfect by truly seeing that all were created equal, but then, no society since The Fall has ever gotten it right.

    Nevertheless, America has done better than virtually any other nation in history, and it’s sad to see us surrender the way of life that has blessed us all more than any other people on earth.

    Comparing the past with the present is such a tremendously broad task that it’s hard to think of a resource that would encompass everything, or even the main things adequately. But there are a few books that come to mind which may help answer some of those questions.

    Democracy in America by Alexis de Tocqueville
    Total Truth by Nancy Pearcy
    Why You Think the Way You Do: The Story of Western Worldviews from Rome to Home by Glenn Sunshine
    How Christianity Changed the World by Alvin Schmidt
    Whatever Happened to the American Dream by Larry Burkett
    The Tragedy of American Compassion by Marvin Olasky
    The Book That Made America: How the Bible Formed Our Nation by Jerry Newcombe
    America: The Last Best Hope by William Bennett
    5000 Year Leap by Cleon Skousen
    George Washington’s Sacred Fire by Peter Lillback
    Slouching Towards Gomorrah by Robert Bork
    America: To Pray or Not to Pray by David Barton
    Original Intent by David Barton

    There are so many more that I’m sure I’m forgetting, and while none of these will tell you everything you want to know, as you read more of them, you’ll be amazed at how the pieces of our past start to come together.

    For what it’s worth, the book among that list that has affected my life more than any other except the Bible was “Whatever Happened to the American Dream.” You could say I had an epiphany while reading it. I had always been politically cognizant since junior high school, but had never been politically involved or engaged. After reading that book, I couldn’t NOT be involved. It came out around 1993 and though a lot of the statistics it cites will now be dated (things are much worse now), it should prove a powerful resource to help you see how the American dream and way of life are being sold down the river.

    My most earnest hopes and prayers go with you as you embark on this journey to learn more. I guarantee you won’t regret it.

  15. Nope. Are you blithely ignorant of the fact that the relatively small number (when compared to the slaughter of, say, Islam, or perhaps atheistic Marxism which has the blood of about 100 million on its hands in the last century alone) of such incidents are inconsistent with Biblical doctrine, and people who claim to be Christians and do so are acting in contradiction to the teaching of Christ?

    You probably weren’t but now you don’t have that crutch with which to try excusing an immoral, unhealthy and destructive sexual behavior.

  16. “the murder and torture of millions of innocents through the ages committed in the ‘name of Christ’.”

    Why do so many people keep making such claims, as if they’re the first ones ever to do so? It’s such a tired, unoriginal argument — not to mention invalid. (In this case, I question the veracity of the claim of “millions” as well.)

    As Bob points out, murder and torture “in the name of Christ” cannot happen without Christian principles being severely and directly violated. In contrast, murder and torture in the name of Islam, Marxism, etc., does *not* violate the principles of those belief systems.

  17. And let’s not forget:

    4. Assuming that homosexuality is an innate, morally neutral trait, analogous to race, and therefore disapproving of it is akin to racism. WRONG.
