Please Stop Shoving This Down Our Throats…
My son is not quite two years old. He is just now trying to drink out of regular cups when he finds them.
I’m not sure if he is “late” in his development or “early” in his development. I really don’t care. He’ll get there soon enough. All I do know is that when he finds a stray cup he shoves the contents straight down his throat.
It is kind of funny. He grabs the cup with both hands and throws it down the hatch.
Instantly his eyes become watery, sometimes he chokes, and sometimes the contents that went in come right back out…
For some reason, this is the image that comes to mind when I think of the homosexual agenda. This thing has been shoved down our throats, and frankly, it is causing me to throw up.
The latest development (in the constant onslaught) is the Michael Sam debacle. Apparently this All-American defensive lineman from the University of Missouri is the NFL’s first openly gay player. As this was developing, my phone continued to chirp over and over again (I allow notifications through my ESPN App).
Seriously?! This is that important that you have to keep sending me notifications about it?!
The most ridiculous notification that I received was a quote from NFL spokesman Greg Aiello, who said, “We admire Michael Sam’s honesty and courage.”
Let’s be honest, please.
In the current political climate, courage is not found in saying, “I’m gay.” Courage is found in standing your ground and lovingly saying, “That’s wrong”.
If NFL football players say, “We support this”, they will be accepted (or dare I say allowed to remain). If, however, NFL football players would dare to stand up and lovingly point to the the Bible in saying, “Homosexuality is not right”… well… I don’t think they will continue to be NFL football players.
So how much courage is really necessary to agree with the homosexual agenda? Not much. It is not a very narrow road. In fact, I would say it is quite wide.
Anyone with the audacity to speak out against something like this will, in fact, be labeled as spewing “hate speech”. Well I’m sorry, but this thing has been shoved down our throats and I can’t help but throw it back up. Hate speech is definitely happening, but I would propose it is a very different kind of hate speech than what pop culture would propose.
Anyone who says “I’m cool with homosexuality” is spewing hate speech towards God. This is what James, the brother of Jesus, had to say about this attitude of going along with the ways of the world:
You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is hatred towards God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God (James 4:4).
Michael Sam is clearly an excellent football player. I don’t need to know that he claims to be a homosexual, and I certainly don’t need to be told that I’m supposed to treat him as a hero because of it.
News flash: Many NFL football players deal with ongoing sin. As a matter of fact, we all do. All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. But that doesn’t make us heroic. That just makes us sinful people in desperate need of a Savior.
Amen, Jeff. Olney also decides to compare Sam’s future NFL struggles with those of Jackie Robinson, as he overcame the color barrier as the first black Major League baseball player in 1947. A commenter raised this as being an issue of morality, not as in Robinson’s case being one of racism. Another commenter asked, “Who is able to declare what is moral and immoral?”
To that, God said, “I AM.”
To compare racism to something that is clearly immoral just smears the legacy of Robinson. He had no choice in being black. Some would say that Sam had no choice in being gay. I beg to differ. What’s next, pedophiles? Murderers? Drug or pornography addicts?
What’s really amusing is that Sam will be celebrated for his courage by the NFL, while Michael Vick got vilified for dog fighting. It’s interesting how our culture often views animals as being more important than the well-being of humans, their unborn babies and sin.
The fact is, right is right, wrong is wrong because the Creator of the universe declared it so, not only by His inspired word, but by the natural order of His creation. And just because man and society attempts to discard these truths over time does not make sin ok.
So I ask this — in the debate of morality, does LEGALITY place you on the same side as MORALITY?
