Skip to comments.5 Chilling Societal Developments Since Same-Sex Ruling
Posted on 07/20/2015 8:42:55 AM PDT by HomerBohn
A few days ago I shared a YouTube video with a young father detailing the effects of the gay agenda on children in other countries that are further down the road than we are in America. He was utterly shocked as well as sobered, realizing where we are headed.
At the end of this commentary I will give you the YouTube site. Id like to challenge you to watch the video and realize what is coming, barring a spiritual awakening in our country.
After the Supreme Court ruling on homosexual marriage, weve entered hostile territory and we need to be prepared. And Im not being a Debbie Downer by citing this!
Larry Tomczak is not a pessimist. I am an optimist, but also a realist. I am also not a doomsayer focusing exclusively on negative reports, but neither am I a Pollyanna avoiding negative developments so Ill be popular and perceived solely as upbeat and positive while emphasizing the American revival some are seeing that I personally dont (although I fervently pray for it regularly). We have to see church-wide repentance first for our apathy that got us where we are.
The endtime scenario prior to the Return of our Lord can be described as both gory and glory. According to Scripture, it will be a season that is not merely bad but mad. This is the meaning of the term perilous in 2 Timothy 3:1 describing this tumultuous period. This is also why the Old Testament closes with the prophecy signaling these twin aspects of the close of the age: the great and terrible day of the Lord (Mal. 4:5).
I am persuaded we have entered this scary season. Were seeing the beginning of the great falling away (2 Thess.2:3) scripture warns about. Jesus prophesied about how difficult these days will be when He said, If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive (Mt.24:22).
So join me on this journey as we see whats already happening since the SCOTUS infamous ruling. Are these coincidences or consequences? God is angry. May we hopefully become more motivated to pray and proclaim truth to rescue our nation before its too late. The gospel is the only hope for mankind and when hearts are transformed then the truth of the Bible is taught resulting in changed lifestyles.
In the meantime lets put on our big boy pants and face up to the reality of the avalanche falling upon us. As Ravi Zacharias says, Our culture is at the crossroads. A century ago these times were imagined and they are now here. How do we live as Christians in such times?
5 Chilling Developments in a Matter of Weeks
Jesus replied, When evening comes you say, it will be fair weather for the sky is red, and in the morning, Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast. You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times (Mt.16:2-3).
Consider these five major signs of the times unfolding these past few weeks. Theyre not insignificant theyre apocalyptic. These are seismic shifts. Are you heeding whats happening?
Remember, the United States Supreme Court institutionalized homosexual marriage as the law of the land, wiping out millennia of history, opening the floodgates for radical reconfigurations of marriage, removal of benefits for Christian institutions plus accelerating the erosion of religious freedoms. This represents a day of infamy for America. Since then
1. Planned Parenthood Harvests Organs and Little Sisters of the Poor Defeated
Planned Parenthood, the nations number one abortion provider, was caught in an undercover sting exposing one of their top leaders casually elaborating on harvesting human organs from aborted babies while sipping wine and eating her lunch. This barbarism comes at the same time the Obama Administration wins in court crushing faith and forcing the 175-year old Little Sisters of the Poor to participate in providing contraceptives against their religious convictions. The leader of the nuns, Sr. Loraine Marie Maguire, said, We simply cannot choose between our care for the elderly poor and our faith. Unbelievable, this hijacking of these dedicated servants of humanity.
2. Israel Abandoned and Middle East Nuclear Race Launched
President Obama announced his gamble, a diplomatic debacle with Iran which many astute observers see as a Neville Chamberlain peace in our time deception. It is literally a death sentence for Israel whom we have abandoned. We ended the sanctions; handed them $140 billion; required no anytime inspections or restrictions on their sponsorship of terrorism; no dismantling of their nuclear program; no provision to release American Pastor Saeed Abedini from a torturous prison; and, all this while Iranian people danced in the streets as they and their leaders continue chanting Death to America! and Death to Israel!
Israel declared, Today a terrorist, nuclear superpower is born and it will go down as one of the darkest days in world history. Senator and presidential candidate, Lindsey Graham, R-SC., stated: This agreement is far worse than I ever imagined it could be. Over time, it will prove to be a nightmare for our own national security, the region as a whole, and eventually the world at large. The Middle East nuclear arms race has officially begun as Obamas deal delays, does not banish, Irans nuclear weaponry.
3. Boy Scouts Accepts Homosexual Scout Leaders
The Boy Scouts of America just unanimously approved homosexuals as Scout leaders. This overturns 105 years of the venerable institutions policy and opens floodgates similar to the SCOTUS ruling. On July 27, this unprecedented decision will undoubtedly be ratified by the National Board. Implications of this historic decision are staggering (see larrytomczak.com for related article).
4. Christian Institutions Capitulating
Already Christian colleges and universities are capitulating to LGBTQ pressures and changing policies to conform to the homosexual lifestyle. Baylor University, Belmont University, Notre Dame University, Hope College are just some that are caving.
5. Society and Schools Begin Shaping Children to LGBTQ Agenda
School boards and publishing houses are already changing curriculums to align with LGBTQ developments. I have in my possession some books that really are shocking. Recently CBN news reported what is transpiring in Virginia and for the sake of discretion Ill not be graphic, but it is grievous.
What Will America Look Like in a Few Years with Gay Propaganda?
The fallout from a cultures acceptance and endorsement of homosexual practices translates into sexual experimentation among the young and impressionable. Studies by even pro-homosexual researchers reveal that children in gay-affirming environments are more likely to experiment sexually, break gender norms and identify as homosexual or bisexual.
The American Journal of Orthopsychiatry stated that 24% of children raised by lesbian mothers had been involved in a same-gender sexual relationship.
A Tasker-Golombok study, Adults Raised as Children in Lesbian Families, revealed that the percentage of the young women raised by lesbians who later went on to self-identify as lesbians was nearly 8 times the rate of the general population (11% vs. 1.4%).
Heres the deal: Children are the victims when adults steamroll over them for homosexual pleasure-giving relationships. When they sit in schools and see in the media homosexuality portrayed as normal, natural and simply an alternative lifestyle choice, theyre easily enticed and persuaded.
This is why Supreme Court Justice, Antonin Scalia said the following: Many Americans do not want persons who openly engage in homosexual conduct as partners in their business, and scoutmasters for their children, as teachers in their childrens schools or as borders in their home They view this as protecting themselves and their families from a lifestyle that they believe to be immoral and destructive.
Love Wins? Not our children and grandchildren, as so-called progressive LGBTQ advocates are passionate about inculcating diabolical ideas into the hearts and minds of our children and grandchildren. They have an agenda and are well organized, well funded and hell-bent on seeing it come to pass in the next generation.
At this defining moment in our nations history, we must not tolerate any group of arrogant judges, political leaders, educators and, yes, even ministers promoting their radical social experiment by legitimizing homosexual behavior in the eyes of vulnerable children and grandchildren. We must not let this die be cast.
In closing, let me jolt you with the developments in Europe as the LGBTQ advocates push their propaganda. I will warn you in advance, this is explicit, yet truthful about what happens when Gods people, especially His leaders, lack the courage to speak up and stand up as salt and light in the day of testing. May it never be said of us. We need a spiritual awakening!
Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power
Homosexuality and lesbianism needs to crawl back under the rock and stay there.
Evil begets evil
“1. Planned Parenthood Harvests Organs and Little Sisters of the Poor Defeated”
These are not related, and actually the harvested organs was going on long before this. It’s just it was finally revealed last week.
....If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive...
I don’t know about the rest of you, but it seems to me that lately the days and weeks have never been flying by so fast.
Could the days be cutting short now?
We simply are too politically correct and do not want the ire of the government to descend upon us, individually..
God help us to stand for our faith and our nation.
Stop bowing to evil ... in Jesus name we pray. amen.!!!
Homofascists begin with the premise: "Homosexuality is 'normal' for me."
This is a fraud, because there is ample scientific evidence to suggest that homosexuality is indeed a 'variant,' of human behavior. If we are to remain epistemologically and logically consistent, the fact that such behavior is by definition not statistically normal sends this premise careening off the road of reason and towards the guardrails of fallacy. The statement, "Homosexuality is 'normal' for me, substitutes solipsism for science. Can't have it both ways, I'm afraid. There is an ironic danger in the malignant narcissism implicit in that statement, as those who make it have the most to lose by it.
So, to respond to homofascists advocating that position, one can say that by reducing the concept of normality to whatever you deem it to be for yourself, you therefore legitimize the behavior of those who feel that, oh, say, tarring and feathering you or hanging you by the neck until dead because of your 'orientation' is merely another opinion - and one just as valid as yours. Furthermore, if you really want to hew to this particular line of reasoning, then you must also have nothing to say regarding the opinions of others who disagree with your lifestyle choices. As I said, you can't have it both ways - unless of course, you resort to the Left's historical means of dealing with disagreement - namely, the gun, the gulag and the execution pits. For those who argue that this seems a tad, well, extreme, recent history is replete with examples.
Worse, the logic implicit in such a solipsistic statement denies the existence of good and evil, right and wrong or any sort of moral/ethical standards. Anne Hendershott, writing in The Politics of Deviance, says that the sociologist's objective in studying deviance is not to classify a specific behavior as either deviant or conforming, but rather to position a given behavior or class of related behaviors on a continuum ranging from negligible to serious in terms of the reaction it evokes in the community. If a behavior is considered by the majority of the members of a community to be unacceptable, dangerous or morally wrong, then that behavior is regarded as deviant. To quote Hendershott, "When a behavior warrants and receives condemnatory or punitive reactions, sociologists assert that it has seriously violated prevailing behavioral standards." Discussion of the derivation of those standards - and the current cultural war against standards of any sort deserves a separate discussion, but we can address elements of it here.
For example, homofascists will argue that nobody is trying to "normalize" ANY kind of sexual "behavior" to grade-schoolers. This of course, is a lie.
A common homofascist dodge is to attempt to distance themselves from the assertion by resorting to the use of the word 'nobody' in order to diffuse and redirect attention from it. But the claim that, indirectly or otherwise that there is no attempt being made to in our public schools to 'normalize' ANY sort of sexual behavior is simply untrue in other words, a lie. The evidence to the contrary - that homosexual behavior is indeed presented as simply another mode of sexuality and that this presentation has been institutionalized and is routinely made to those in the sixth grade or even earlier is too well documented to warrant serious consideration to the contrary.
But why not take it from those who speak directly to the issue of the normalization of homosexuality. Let us now refer to After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90's, by Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen. Among other things, they say AIDS as an exploitable issue, one that could be used to, "establish ourselves as a victimized minority - legitimately deserving of America's special protection and care." Their words - not mine. This is relevant to our discussion because Kirk and Madsen saw an opportunity to recast the deviants of the past into the victims of the present - a point of view and a methodology that meshed perfectly with the zeitgeist of the victimist politics promulgated by the Left.
Kirk and Madsen called specifically for a "conversion of the average American's emotions, mind and will, through a planned psychological attack." Again - their own words, not mine. Kirk and Madsen outlined and described three specific approaches to this attack on American sensibilities: desensitization, jamming and conversion. Examples of desensitization aren't hard to come by. Many colleges, high schools and elementary schools celebrate the accomplishments of allegedly homosexual historical figures - convenient since the dead are no position to sure for libel or slander. The preposterous and untrue 'outing' of Abraham Lincoln is one such example. In another example a little closer to home, the Oak Hill Middle school in Newton, Massachusetts posted the photos of "major gay figures of the modern world." this - for the edification of 10 to 13 year-olds.
We shouldn't be too terribly surprised at any of this, given the complicity of the teaching profession in this sort of 'desensitization'. Reading from a course description at a West Coast university, we find that it offers to "use adolescent and children's literature, poetry, film and music to investigate what it means to be gay, lesbian or bisexual." The course: Finding Common Ground: Using Children's Literature to Explore Issues Related to Gay, Lesbian and Straight Identities was offered for those enrolled in the university's School of Education. At the very least, the lionizing of historical and literary figures' alleged sexual orientation is a criminal trivialization of their real accomplishments and contributions to the arts and sciences. As Camille Paglia has said, "Wouldn't students be better off if their teachers fed them facts rather than propaganda? Proclaiming Eleanor Roosevelt gay is not only goofy but malicious. It reduces a bold, dynamic woman to whose entire achievement was in the public realm to gossip and speculation about her most guarded private life."
Jamming is often combined with desensitization. Kirk and Madsen wrote that "propagandistic advertisement can depict homo-hating bigots as crude loudmouths and assholes - people who say not only 'faggot,' but nigger, kike and other shameful epithets." In other words, they attempt to conflate disagreement or disapproval of homosexual practices with true bigotry. For example, under the aegis of many universities' compulsory "diversity" training programs, first year students are subjected to propaganda whose principle focus is on homosexuality. In one such program at Williams College, representatives of the Bisexual, Gay and Lesbian Union led 'Feel What It's Like to be Gay' tours through freshman dorms and required students to state their names and declare themselves to be gay. even though they were not.
Kirk and Madsen advocate conversion - that is, "subverting the mechanism of prejudice through the use of associative conditioning. It isn't enough that anti-gay bigots should become confused about us, or even indifferent to us - we are safest, in the long run, if we can actually make them like us." Interesting choice of words, here, is it not? All of the three methods outlined above are in use in our public schools and universities. For example, one of the major goals of GLSEN and similar groups is to reform public school curricula and teaching so that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender themes are always central and always presented in the approved light - they're quite open about it.
So nobody is engaged in normalizing homosexual practices and lifestyle in our public schools? Those who advance that argument don't even have the price of admission to a reasoned discussion - the willingness to tell and recognize the truth.
If same sex ed is taught in schools and is in fact a done deal we should insist that the details of procreation which involve labs, doctors, scientists, and women willing to undergo gestation in this cause be included in the educational program. That will underline the unnaturalness as few other things can.
Reminds me of Revelation 21:8... It isn’t the homosexuals, murderers, liars or other miscreants to be the first cast into the fire. Nope. It’s the cowards who go first. Think on that one awhile y’all.
You are RIGHT!
Let’s vow to stand up and speak out against the pedestalizing of sodomists by our lousy, stinking, evil government that should be removed.
Who’s our leader?
Oh. They’re either all dead or have been forcibly retired by that retard who eat, sleeps and sh*ts in the dishonored White Hut.
I believe the Bible says that if the days don’t speed by there will be no flesh saved.
(Or something like that.)
WHILE NO ONE DoES OR STANDS IN RESPONSE.
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. NOT CONGRESS OR THE PRESS, THE MEDIAS, OR WE THE PEOPLE. WE ALL SIT AND WANT TO AVOID THE IRE OF THE GOVERNEMNT, WITH CAUSE. BAD ISEA.
YET NO ONE WANTS TO BE THE FIRST.
WRATH IS COMING.
Wrath is here, that’s what this is about!
The beginning of the rise of the anti-Christ and those who will usher him in the homosexuals.
Make no mistake about it, the homosexuals IS part and will be part of those who will usher in the anti-Christ.
The Hitler youth are being brainwashed by gay propaganda in the media, schools, make no mistake about it, thoose youths who are being indoctrinated now and the millinials are the Hitler youths and adults.
Out of this, the homosexual worldview and agenda you will see the rise of the Nephelium.
Think it can’t happen ?
It’s happening already without people taking notice.
This is pure evil that we are seeing.
Homosexuality is pure demonic activity, it’s not so called “ Love “.
No wonder the bible tells us to get out of her, mystery Babylon, this is part of occultic religion, homosexuality.
The old prophets of baal and moloch were enfeminat men who practice perverted sexual practices right on the alter’s of baal and Moloch of ancient Israel.
Homosexuality is satanic worship in occultic ritual to summon up Lucifer from his pit.
The Luciferians , satanic occults, witchcraft, wicans practice homosexual acts during their rituals of occult religious.
The media, the liberals, the homosexuals are setting the world up for the anti-christ and revealing the man of sin, the son of perdition.
Jesus told us that those days will be cut short.
Very disturbing development.
Thanks for making us aware of this.
There used to be very loud warriors speaking out about moral decay.
Phyllis Schafly, Concerned Women for America, Christian Coalition, for instance.
I know the mainstream media is better than ever at squelching dissenting views, ie: calling conservatives intolerant haters.
However, I don’t or hear significant outrage.
Seems few dare risk the ridicule and wrath of the LGBT gaystapo.
Communist goals are nearly complete, making it all the easier for Muslims to take advantage of the moral vaccumn, assuring their dominance and eventual conquest.
We can still turn back to God, but that will require that we as Christians clean our house of idolatry and then preach the same!
I had a pastor friend tell me he genuinely believed in a sort of end-time spiral where time would be accelerated, or seem so. I know that time flies faster as you age, but the current rate is getting unnaturally strange.
Might find this interesting as there is ‘Nothing new under the sun’.......http://www.gcmwatch.com/4361/jesus-the-days-of-noah-and-same-sex-marriage
