GAYS DON’T NEED OUR
APPROVAL BUT OUR PRAYERS
– Mary LaClair
When gay/lesbian groups fought against legal prejudice, they said that they only wanted acceptance as human beings, aside and apart from their sexual preferences. “Keep the state out of our bedrooms!” was their mantra.
However, during the gay Olympics, they bring their sexual behaviour to the streets – and
again in Disneyland the first week in June – and yet again a few weeks later they bring their sex preference out to the streets of NYC for their infamous parade. Their pain still pursues them, despite their attaining the long coveted official minority status. This status did not bring the peace they thought it would, so now they open their ‘private’ bedrooms and bring their activity to the streets, seeking our approval of their behaviour as well!
Their pain pursues them in spite of obtaining minority status. Give some people an
inch and they will take a mile. Do they believe their consciences will be eased if they convince us to approve their practices, enlisting us to join them? Pain will only increase as long as God’s design is violated. And NO! We will not approve! To do so is permitting them to force us to violate and forego our own morals and standards, while seeking free exercise of their own immorality for themselves and our society.
Ask anyone who has been through a divorce if the open approval of, or the high incidence of divorce rates has alleviated their pain. No, the pain is still very real, despite approval and common occurrences. Neither will open approval or the growing ranks of homosexuals remove the pain of those who practice this sinful “alternative deathstyle.”
Their wrong doing and society’s unbeneficial approval will only compound the consequences for all.
God does not hate them, and neither should we. God does hate their
actions/behaviour (sin). Since it is the sin itself which God hates, and not
people, it is possible that God hates sodomous (sinful) acts within a heterosexual marriage as well! He calls it whoremongering! (and lust!) And lest any become self-righteous, we should remember that, the greedy person, the liar, the perjurer, the homosexual, the proud, the glutton, the drunkard, the adulterer, etc… are all equally sinners in His sight. One’s god may be sex; another’s god -money; another’s god – food and drink; another’s god – self. None of these will save from hell. However, God has made provision for our past sin – Jesus Christ! And He has made provision for power to abandon future sin – the Holy Spirit! God tolerates no rivals. We pass this way but once. Our attitudes here determine where we will spend eternity. If we refuse His loving provision(s) for our righteousness here on earth, then He is right and just to refuse us on that day. Remember Sodom and Gomorrah? By the way, has anyone been keeping score on natural disasters lately? Could these be the evidence of the Power of a Righteous and a Provoked God?
Why do they seek our approval? Is it because they know they are doing wrong? Homosexuals do not need our approval or sympathy; they need our loving prayers! They need to be rescued from the sorrow that chases them, the peace that eludes them. To
disregard their need for prayer will only prolong their pain now, and assure it
in eternity. If you love these people, which way will you choose to help them?
By temporary, vain approval – or by diligent, effective prayer, and helping
them to make right choices?
Should we treat a murderer, a perjurer, a drunkard, a greedy thief, in the same way
pro-gay groups wish us to treat their members – with approval, understanding
and acceptance of the deed? Of course not! Approving of homosexual acts,
whether homosexual or heterosexual, puts public health at risk by spreading the
fatal disease of AIDS. Health departments list it as risky behavior, and a
danger to both society and health care units. – end
