Big Beer Bows to ‘Gay’ Bullies in Reprobate America
American Clarion ^ | March 18, 2014 | Gina Miller

NYC Gay Pride Parade (Source: Wikimedia Commons)

Erin go Gay, as they say today! In the latest high-profile example of large companies bowing in subservience to the altar of homosexual debauchery, three major brewing corporations have bent to homosexual intimidation and pulled their sponsorship of the New York and Boston St. Patrick’s Day parades. The makers of Guinness, Heineken and Sam Adams beers have all caved to the homo-fascist pink fist, while countless conservatives have sworn never to buy those beer brands again.

You may say, “Who cares? I don’t drink beer.” This isn’t about beer. It’s about free association. It’s about freedom, period. It’s about the people who run those parades being free to admit or exclude whatever groups they see fit. No one has a “right” to march in someone else’s parade, and that’s the bottom line. These parades are about celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, and the parade organizers have every right to say no to in-your-face homosexual groups that want to impose themselves on the parades against the will of the people who run them.

The militant homosexual activists wrongly declare that this is about “equality.” That is nonsense. Homosexual behavior is depraved behavior, and it should never be put on the same level as the normal, healthy relationship between a man and wife. The only thing to which homosexual behavior is equal is sin, because that’s exactly what it is and what it will always be, no matter how thick and smothering the black blanket of Sodom and Gomorrah ends up being in the United States.

Many of us are watching the dark clouds of evil that are rolling across America, and we are saying it’s the Lord’s judgment on a nation that has spit in His holy face by using the force of law to expel all vestiges of Him and His Truth from the public square. I firmly believe this is true. I also believe that the rapid, head-spinning empowerment of the radical homosexual movement under Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) is part of God’s judgment on this nation. Obama himself is part of God’s judgment. Many times in the Old Testament, we have seen the Lord inspire the enemies of Israel to come against it and defeat it when it turned from the Lord. He has installed wicked rulers to impose brutal tyranny on unrepentant people and nations.

Illustrating this truth, Reverend Michael Bresciani, publisher of the American Prophet website, has one of the best columns on the subject that I’ve read lately. Posted at BarbWire.com, the column is titled, “America: Plunging Headlong Into Reprobation?” He writes:

The dictionary definition of “reprobation” pales against the Biblical definition.

The word “reprobation” in the Bible refers to something far more than simple immorality. It is the inability to hear, understand and implement truth and morality. People with reprobate minds find it impossible to discern right and wrong.

The Bible says God gives men over to a state of reprobation as we collectively approach the last days of time before the second coming of Christ. The word is used in Romans 1: 28, one of the most frightening prophetic statements in all of scripture.

Speaking of conditions preceding the last days, the Apostle Paul declared, “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind…”

The phrase “God gave them over” is enough to make us shudder when considering that if God gives us up, redemption and any chance of recovery is literally impossible.

Oddly, most dictionary definitions include a rendering of the word that clearly indicates that people don’t just fall into reprobation, they willfully labor to get into this state.

This is chilling to the bone. The Lord will not forever contend with a wayward people. While He is very patient, His patience has its limit. To think that America may have reached the end of God’s patience for it is deeply scary. I know that the only thing that might earn America a reprieve from the Lord to stop the inevitable tyranny that is barreling toward us is a massive change of heart by the American people, a sharp turning back toward the Lord in humble repentance and obedience to His Word. Looking around at our desperately degenerate culture, what do you suppose the odds are of that happening?

Speaking of America’s growing lawlessness and depravity, Rev. Michael states:

When all of this reaches its peak we will be ready for the world’s last dictator: a ruler long prophesied to come in the last days. He will be called the “lawless one” (2 Thess 2:8 NAS) according to the Apostle Paul.

A ruler who lives without laws may seem like the perfect non-sequitur until it is revealed that the antichrist changes the laws to fit his own view of right and wrong. Being the incarnation of the Devil himself means that his view is always the exact opposite of God and is always wrong. A perfect type of the antichrist is Barack Obama. He rules, but according to — mis-rule.

Gay marriage and abortion, Obama’s preferred social causes, are antichrist in nature. Then there are his anti-American policies such as coddling our enemies, blocking the recovery of our own natural resources, jumping headfirst into the great global warming hoax, allowing government agencies (IRS) to push his political agenda, and the wasting of the lives of soldiers and public servants without anyone answering to the law (Benghazi).

This kind of law is not what was long ago established by the Living God, the Constitution of the United States, and a duly elected congressional body of lawmakers.

No, it’s not at all the kind of law of America’s foundation. It is a strange law, but not a new one. It’s ancient and has its roots in Hell. The Godless human minions of Satan are aggressively working to use the force of law to mandate perversity all across our land, in all our institutions, government, military and corporations. These three beer makers are just the latest to publicly cave.

There is no doubt that America is on a very dark road, and how bad it’s going to get remains to be seen. We are now being ruled by truly evil people with reprobate minds who have nothing but disdain for the God of all creation. The American people themselves, demonstrating their own moral decay, have voted these leaders into office, although I know that ultimately, it is God in His judgment Who has installed these tyrants to rule over us.

While it is important that we participate in the political process, the fact is that we can’t vote our way out of this evil mess. If we are to have any hope at all of reclaiming our nation for God, though we stumble daily, we must each work our way back to Him, repent of our sins and pray for His mercy, and then perhaps the Lord will relent in allowing what appears to be grim tyranny and certain destruction on this lost, rebellious nation.

Too bad about the big three stouts. But that’s what you get for selling out to Diageo and Heineken. There are some up-and-coming dry stouts from independent breweries that have nothing to do with the big-brewery sellouts; if I can find them, I’ll certainly give them my business so long as they stay out of this political arena.

They make up controversies, since really all the parades are doing is keeping the parades based on what the actual holiday was about.

The best response to this would be to label Guinness, Heineken and Sam Adams, as "gay beers". If they love the homosexual market so much, let them make their money from it, not heterosexual beer drinkers.

This could especially work if when women are approached in bars by (obnoxious) men who are drinking it, they can suggest something to the effect of "Why are you hitting on me? You're drinking gay beer, so you must be gay!"

Someone could even do an Internet campaign showing flamboyant gay men, with a caption like "I'm gay and I'm proud! That's why I drink Heineken!"

I think it is great that the beer companies are making a big deal out of boycotting the parade. This way I know what brands to stay away from.

Scooter had a good take on that:

Guinness Goes Gay

BOSTON (WNB) - Guinness joined Heineken and Sam Adams in pulling its sponsorship of St. Patrick’s Day parades in New York and Boston, citing organizers’ restrictions on gay and lesbian participants as a central reason for cutting ties.

"Guinness has a strong history of supporting diversity and being an advocate for equality for all," read the Guinness statement. "As this has not come to pass, Guinness has withdrawn its participation. We will continue to work with community leaders to ensure that future parades have an inclusionary policy."

In possibly-related news, Texas brewer Lone Star is reporting extremely heavy sales of their new "Not Gay" brand beer at both Boston and New York St. Patrick's Day events.

From the stills of the things that I’ve seen, average Americans will be totally disgusted by the antics of the participants.

I've drunk Guiness when I was in Ireland, and thought it was pretty lousy beer. I never did care for Heineken. Sam Adams, though, is pretty good beer. I'll miss it, but I'm not going to support anyone who bows to the queers.

My guess is that next year, Boston and NY will refuse parade permits to the Irish heritage (read: Catholic) groups that made the decision to prohibit openly gay groups from the parades. The major of NY is openly communist, and Boston is the epicenter of liberalism in New England. Then, the courts will rule that the parades are not an intrinsic part of Catholicism, so it's not religious discrimination (even though it would be). The phrase in the 1st amendment is “freedom of religion”, not “freedom from religion” or “freedom of worship”. The courts keep getting that wrong. Surprise, surprise, surprise....

The Health Risks of gay sex.

http://www.catholiceducation.org/articles/homosexuality/ho0075.html

 

Genesis 13:13
Now the men of Sodom were wicked and were sinning greatly against the LORD.

Genesis 18:20-21
20. Then the LORD said, "The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and
their sin so grievous
21. that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know."

Genesis 19:4-7
4. Before they had gone to bed, all the men
from every part of the city of Sodom--both young and old--surrounded the house.
5. They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them
."
6. Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him
7. and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing.

Psalms 12:8 The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.

Doonesbury Cartoon for Feb/08/2013

Isaiah 3:9 The look on their faces testifies against them; they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves.

2 Peter 2:13b Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.


Ezekiel 16:49-50
49. "`Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.
50. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.



2 Peter 2

1. But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves.
2. Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.
3. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
4. For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them into gloomy dungeons to be held for judgment;
5. if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;
6. if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;
7. and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men
8. (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)--
9. if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment.
10. This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature and despise authority. Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander celestial beings;
11. yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not bring slanderous accusations against such beings in the presence of the Lord.
12. But these men blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish.
13. They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done.
Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.



But there IS hope!!!

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

9. Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived:
Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders
10. nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
11. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.


If you could NOT change, you would be in most pitiful shape...

Dammit, there goes my beloved Guinness Extra Stout!

Well, how's about Samuel Smith's [1758] Tadcaster--I actually thought the bottle was black, the gold foil hid the fact the glass was clear--was it surprising when I poured it!

For stronger, try Spaten Optimator Dopplebock, 7.5% ABV, since 1397!

For a nice domestic, I love Fritz Maytag's Anchor Steam Beer, since 1896 only. ;) But they brew all types, ale, porter, stout, bock...what's not to love?

All these are tasty, sometimes hard to find and not inexpensive, but VERY satisfying!

Saint Patrick is a saint of the Catholic Church. Irish national and Irish-American identity is centered around Catholicism, for well-known historical reasons. The Welsh and Highland Scots, of Celtic heritage, are culturally and racially similar to the Irish, yet did not receive the degree of persecution the Irish did due to the Protestantism that is the main religion of both the former groups. (There is a substantial number of Highlanders that are Catholic.) The Catholic religion regards homosexual behavior as sinful. Therefore, any parade that allows perverts to parade is an affront to both Catholicism and Irish-American heritage.

Once upon a time, Irish-Americans fought American Protestants who tried to deny their rights to assembly and worship with political action and violence against their tormentors. Will they cave to the secularists and Marxists who are trying to do the same thing as the Protestants of yore attempted? Where is Bishop Hughes when you need him?

The instigator in me found this:

Anheuser-Busch & InBev

Anheuser-Busch-InBev is the leading global brewer and one of the world’s top five consumer products companies. AB InBev manages a portfolio of well over 200 beer brands that includes global flagship brands Budweiser®, Stella Artois® and Beck’s®, fast growing multi-country brands like Leffe® and Hoegaarden®, and strong “local champions” such as Bud Light®, Skol®, Brahma®, Quilmes®, Michelob®, Harbin®, Sedrin®, Klinskoye®, Sibirskaya Korona®, Chernigivske®, and Jupiler®, among others. In 2010, AB InBev realized 36.3 billion US dollar revenue.

June is “officially recognized” by the Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual and Trans-gendered community as Gay Month.

AB-InBev is one of the largest sponsors of the celebratory events taking place through the USA during the month of June. A quick glance at provides extensive detail on their support for this behavior.

Through extensive financial support including advertising, philanthropy, sponsorship, promotion and printing, InBev has demonstrated a full and complete support of the GLBT lifestyle as detailed by a few links listed below. (CAUTION LINKS MAY CONTAIN OFFENSIVE MATERIAL).

“Anybody know of a good substitute for Guinness?”

“I suggested Murphy’s stout yesterday, but someone pointed out the it is a Heineken product.”

After years as a solely local stout, the acquisition of the brewery by Heineken in 1983, with a consequent expansion in distribution and international television advertising, exposed Murphy’s to the international drinking community.

Several years ago I started making a Murphy’s Dry Irish Stout clone. One of my favorite beers.... Guess I’ll make more myself and purchase less. It’s one of the easiest beers to brew....

This isn’t about beer. It’s about free association. It’s about freedom, period. It’s about the people who run those parades being free to admit or exclude whatever groups they see fit. No one has a “right” to march in someone else’s parade, and that’s the bottom line.

The beer companies have freedom of association, too. The government cannot force the parade organizers to let gay organizations march, but other people can criticize the parade organizers for that decision. The beer companies can sponsor the parade or not, as they choose. Customers can buy beer from those companies or boycott them, as they choose. Freedom of speech and association goes two ways.

You appear to be missing an important distinction here. The beer companies had long sponsored these parades and always made a nice amount of money in parade-related sales. They would not have chosen to drop their sponsorships under “normal” circumstances. They dropped because of intimidation from the radical homosexual activists, who are notorious for making real trouble for businesses that do not lick their boots with statements of “support.”

If you believe “freedom of association” comes at the end of a fascist pink fist, then I guess you’ll really enjoy the new Amerika.

You could try used motor oil. ;)

Too much trans fat and it doesn't keep a good head. :)
