Homosexuals Move in on Mennonites. ECUSA cited
VirtueOnline-News ^ | 7/20/2006 | J. Grant Swank, Jr.

When visiting Mennonite friends in central Pennsylvania, they informed us of their grave concern. Because they are born again Christians, life-long Mennonites, they are alarmed at the enemy taking over the Mennonite congregations.

The theological enemy equals homosexuals - practicing homosexuals and those endorsing their lifestyle as God blessed.

So while having breakfast with our friends, Paul showed me a magazine published by the Mennonites. There were numerous letters to the editor exclaiming over the infiltration of homosexuals.

I wondered how this could be. Homosexuals have taken over the Episcopal Church of America so that now the bishop states to media that biblical Episcopalians are "of the devil." The whole apostasy has spread so far as to influence the worldwide Anglican communion.

The African Anglicans have been particularly vocal about the American Episcopal mad move. African communions have informed the Archbishop of Canterbury that he had better exercise his spiritual authority as lead pastor in warning the American congregations of their spiritually backslidden condition.

Thus far, the Archbishop has shown little gusto in doing that. In fact, he has become an irritant to the worldwide believing Anglican worshipers in not doing enough for the biblical cause.

So when I read the letters to the editor of a Mennonite magazine, I immediately thought of the homosexual plan. It's a plot from hell. It is to infiltrate heretofore biblical gatherings with their diabolical dogma as well as sinful lifestyle. Therefore, they have now come upon not only the aesthetically prone Episcopalians but also the plain living Mennonites.

But the Mennonites? How the Mennonites? And why?

The bottom line is that Mennonites are known for being a "peace church" like unto the Plymouth Brethren and the Society of Friends (Quakers). Numerous homosexuals agree to be non-military and therefore fit right in with the peace accent of these so-called "peace churches," hence the gravitation of homosexuals to the Mennonites communities.

The "homosexual Mennonites" then champion pacifism while spreading homosexual lifestyle as God ordained alongside heterosexual lifestyle.

What is particularly alarming is that the editorial leadership, that is, especially in Mennonite printed material such as denominational magazines, have taken the side of the homosexuals. In other words, homosexual enthusiasts have infiltrated the printed word, the reading material going out into Mennonite homes and church sanctuaries.

I don't think the rest of Christendom is as much aware of the homosexual infiltration of the Mennonites as it is aware of the Episcopal diabolical, for example. However, it would be wise to take stock of the infiltration in many locales religious, including not only the Episcopal Church in America but also the United Church of Christ (Congregational), Presbyterian Church of America and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (the term "evangelical" no longer having its biblical meaning in the title of that denomination).

In short, the homosexual religious actors have continued their inroads in what appears to those concerned about End Times theology as a takeover of the Christian Church.

I have ties in the Mennonite church. I know of two pastors who have left their spouses and children to take up with the homosexual life. They continue to call themselves Mennonite pastors.

This article illuminates something that has been going on in the Mennonite church for about 10 years. Goshen and other Mennonite colleges have lost their direction.

It is sad. There is no place safe for God's people on this earth.

We have a lot of commercials on our talk radio stations brought to you by three being Mennonites. I never knew the Mennonites were so big.

Wow! I've known some Mennonites and they seem to be very quite, keep to themselves kind of people. Never bother anyone and live a kind of austere life. Hard to believe this is happening to them.

I feel like that too, sometimes. But then I remind myself that God will always keep us safe in the way that counts: spiritually. In His Word He tells us how to stay safe. I worry most about children who are so vulnerable to these influences. Parents don't always see the danger even when they think they are being very careful.

Also, it seems that the best materials have always come out of dangerous times. I guess it's that whole trial by fire thing where people are purified through trials and tribulations. We just have to stay aware. And in the process of forming the necessary arguments to counter these sinful issues and false teachings, we are producing important resources for others. So we must not grow weary and compromise. Double check the influences in your own life and family first. You might be surprised what you find. Then just keep on speaking the truth everywhere you can. But keep the closest watch on you and yours.

I wonder if "regular" Mennonites are deciding that they are homosexuals, or are "regular" homosexuals deciding to destroy the Mennonite church.

I can't picture homosexual, practicing Mennonites. I'll own it: We Catholics can be flashy. As much as they hated Pope Benedict, you know all the queers were watching all that pageantry. Seeing all that red brings to mind where they must've come up with the word, "flaming." (NO! I am NOT insinuating anything! A lot of gays simply love pageantry; and Rome has a lot of ancient pageantry.)

And there's only one thing in the Protestant world to match the pageantry of a new pope: A royal wedding. (I imagine there may have been some disappointment at the wedding of Charles and Camilla, were it not for all those "OutRRRRRageous" hats.)

But Mennonites? MENNONITES?

Plain greys, drab blues, and here and there a lively soft blue. Period. The Mennonite women I have encountered were frequently breath-taking, but not in the "Vogue" sort of way: No Paris Hiltons (YEECCCHHH!) here! Strictly milk-fed, hearty beauties. Ironically, all those drab clothes seem to make their naturally ruddy cheeks, and sparkling eyes and healthy hair all the more stunning. If such women can't be appreciated, then it IS genetic.

Rather a garbled writer, but it's interesting information, and pretty good analysis, I think.

My wife's minister left his family and congregation for his gay lover. This was from an extremely conservative church. Very sad, especially for the wives who are only used as a convenient cover.

It is sad. My brother in law was music director and kids ministry leader. This at an Assemblies Church. What is wrong with these people (rhetorical). It has been several years now and my sister is finding many women in the same situation, she is seriously considering starting some kind of support group for wives of these liars.

The filthy and disgusting "gays" and their feminazi and "human rightser" allies don't care about Mennonites. They don't care about Episcopalians, Lutherans, UCC, and Methodists, either. And the don't care about Orthodox Christians, Roman Catholics, and Southern Baptists.

All they care about is neutralizing orthodox Christian churches, and all other organizations that are opposed to the "gay" agenda, so that homosexuality gains recognition by the general society as "normal"!!!!

Gaysbian activists have said as much at least as early as 1990. Their evil plots will result in the destruction of all true Christian churches, and of our civilization, unless they are vigorously opposed!!!! God help us!!!!

I would say a combination of both -whether it be Mennonite or whatever -there are two agendas in opposition on this issue.

Authentic freedom and life versus homosexual self- destruction...

There are plainclothes Mennonite and then there are the more worldly Mennonites. Professional class who buy black SAABS.

Yep. Infiltrate, question, cast doubt, lay guilt, offer unity, swing left. Homosexuality, I'll say yet again, is the sharp blade of the spear. Where it penetrates, greater damage follows. The ultimate goal is what you speak of: neutralization of orthodox Judeo-Christianity and its moral codes. Global Godlessness.
