The United States has made what many across the world view as being way off base, as we say here, about homosexual "marriage." We had to inquire from a man called Xavier Lerma about what the Russian people see happening in the United States, and from this article he wrote, Russia and the world are once again condemning the United States and Obama for pushing such a weird idea. The article by this man is entitled "Perversion in America: Gay Pride."
In the first part of his article, it seems Russia is going in the other direction, while the U.S., led by Obama, is going way more left that even Russia.
Mr. Lerma begins his article showing the vast difference between the two nations, and it is not a pretty picture of what many around the world may be thinking of the U.S.:
Two years ago I wrote, "Americans are turning gay and Russian men are looking more like the Klitschko brothers. The US is the modern day Sodom and Gomorrah while Christianity triumphs in Russia." The US Supreme Court last week ruled against logic allowing same sex couples to legally marry. The attack upon Christianity in America becomes worse as the legalization of homosexual marriage becomes law.
The people from ancient Sodom and Gomorrah would be shocked at America's new culture. It is a freak show in an upside down America. Good is bad. Men become women, women become men. Families are being destroyed as the devil rocks their cradle. The sane are considered insane. The foolish praised as philosophers. Judges are deranged and release from prison murderers, rapists and child molesters. Back into the public they go to kill, rape and sexually assault children.
In the first paragraph, we see him comparing the United States to "Sodom and Gomorrah while Christianity triumphs in Russia." That is deeply troubling since God destroyed both cities for their ideology. What will that happen to the entire United States? That is a question that should have been asked before such an action was made. This illustrates just what the world sees the United States doing, and it gives a very low standard of what was a great nation prior to 2009.
Lerma goes on with even more damaging statements about the direction in which the United States is going.
Lerma and perhaps the entire world are astonished at what has happened in the United States, especially coming from a Supreme Court, which now seems to rule on politics rather than facts of law and the Constitution. It makes the United States look very weak in the eyes of the world. Can this downward plunge now faced in the United States be turned around? It is the next paragraph that really hits home as to what the rest of the world—or, at least, Russia—thinks of the United States under Obama.
Christianity is under attack in America as it was in Russia in the early 20th century. Only they use the law to promote their agenda. Over 2000 years ago at Christ's crucifixion there were few of the faithful. Many lost faith in him. Those who despised him had him crucified under the law. So, it is today. Few stand by Christ, and those in power in the west use the law to make sure Christ stays dead and forgotten.
The last priest of St Basil's Cathedral was Fr Ioann Vostorgov. Before he was murdered by the Communists he wrote, "there is not and cannot be complete and absolute freedom for man, that it is limited and must be directed by the Law of God". The free thinkers of his time did not like what he said so they shot him in 1918. How tolerant they were. All liberals are this way. They talk about the best for mankind and give speeches on tolerance, equality and justice for all. If you disagree with them they ignore you or shout at you and prefer you dead.
The fact that Christianity is under attack here in the United States, was made very clear when Obama stated, "They like to hold onto their guns and God." Obama has led the fight against Christians in the United States from day one in office, and it gets worse each year; yet, Christians still support Obama, even when they are under attack by him for their beliefs.
Mr. Lerma shows us that today those in power in the west do not respect Christianity, trying to "make sure Christ stays dead and forgotten." Now, that is really something to read—people from outside the U.S. look at us now and feel that our leaders are making an attempt to destroy our religion, bit by bit. The problem here is that we see this almost every day. Take, for example, the Supreme Court in Oklahoma ordering the Ten Commandments monument to be removed from the government building. Just a few years ago, before 2009, this would not have happened, as the monument would have been respected as a figure of free speech; but today, free speech itself is under attack by the very people sent to the U.S. Senate. The people of the world are laughing and standing in disbelief that the Christians of the United States are allowing this to happen.
Mr. Lerma shows how bad it was in Communist Russia, where they shot a priest for saying, "There is not and cannot be complete and absolute freedom for man, that it is limited and must be directed by the Law of God." It is the liberals who think this way, as Lerma shows.
The next part of the article reflects back to 1978, when our nation was moving forward with so many things that corrupted the youth and adults that they saw the outcome back then:
Alexander Solzhenitsyn once said about America in 1978, "Destructive and irresponsible freedom has been granted boundless space. Society appears to have little defense against the abyss of human decadence, such as, for example, misuse of liberty for moral violence against young people, motion pictures full of pornography, crime and horror. It is considered to be part of freedom and theoretically counter-balanced by the young people's right not to look or not to accept. Life organized legalistically has thus shown its inability to defend itself against the corrosion of evil.
While we do love our freedoms, have we as a nation gone too far? So far that the world considers us as a huge city of evil? This has to be questioned, and it seems that, since 2009, when Obama was elected, our nation has gone from being all-powerful to being the laughing stock of the world.
In America, Orthodox priest, Fr. John Whiteford's brilliant article "Gay Marriage Decision: How do we Respond?" says, "Anyone above the age of 30 has to be amazed at the rapidity with which the gay agenda has been advanced, and with the speed that transgender activism has become the new cause of the left. The Left's goal is the destruction of conservative Christianity, in any form. If you don't believe it, you need to read the recent article on the Huffington Post: "Does Legal Gay Marriage Doom Evangelical Christianity?" by Clay Farris Naff, which states towards the end:
"More than two-thirds of young Americans already accept gay marriage. As it proliferates, more will. To come out as anti-gay is already seriously not cool. Increasingly, in high schools and colleges, to be anti-gay will be like coming out as a Klansman."
This is showing the world that our nation is not living up to the Founders' ideas of religion—it is actually going down the path of failure when Christianity is looked down upon and things like gay marriage are glorified. This is not the way our nation was created, or it would have failed way before even the War Between the States. Lerma shows us that in Russia, they plan to ban the sodomite rainbow flag because of its "sinful nature." The next part of this article shows the world how the United States has seemed to go backwards instead of forward since 2009.
In Moscow recently, Aleksey Lisovenko promised to ban the rainbow flag which is the symbol of the LGBT community. He said, "the United States must have gone completely mad and now its gay delirium is threatening the entire civilized world. Billions of US dollars would be pumped into gay propaganda all over the world, preparing the grounds for rainbow revolutions."
Russian Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin said, "You might not be told that they want to force you to adopt such a godless and sinful thing as same-sex marriages. Remember: in reality they want to take your right to live according to the faith, take your soul, take your opportunity to build the life of your society and your state according to the eternal and invariable God-given moral laws. (US is trying) to impose its anti-natural and post-human view on marriage on other countries."
Can you believe what is being said about the United States with this? The United States is the laughing stock of the world, and in the world's eyes, it is becoming a modern day Sodom and Gomorrah. But what is most revealing is the way the world will look down on the United States for giving up its once glorified religion aspects to fall upon Satan's sword.
The second part of the article shows a Russian priest stating to the world"
"You might not be told that they want to force you to adopt such a godless and sinful thing as same-sex marriages. Remember: in reality
they want to take your right to live according to the faith, take your soul, take your opportunity to build the life of your society and your state according to the eternal and invariable God-given moral laws. (US is trying) to impose its anti-natural and post-human view on marriage on other countries."
Yes, his statement seems to be very accurate, since Obama is looking tom take guns away, and with that goes the entire Constitution—Obama would love to do that. He did say, "The only thing keeping me from total gun confiscation is that damned Constitution." Or words to that affect. See the article related to that here.
In America, Orthodox priest, Fr. John Whiteford's brilliant article "Gay Marriage Decision: How do we Respond?" says, "Anyone above the age of 30 has to be amazed at the rapidity with which the gay agenda has been advanced, and with the speed that transgender activism has become the new cause of the left. The Left's goal is the destruction of conservative Christianity, in any form. If you don't believe it, you need to read the recent article on the Huffington Post: "Does Legal Gay Marriage Doom Evangelical Christianity?" by Clay Farris Naff.
Of course, they do make a comparison to Putin, and it shows a strong and good man, not a weak and scared man such as Obama. Just read what is printed in Russia if you don't believe that they and the world are now questioning anything the United States does just since 2009:
They demonize President Vladimir Putin, whose approval rating is at 89 percent. Putin is just a practical man defending Russia. He understands what works and what does not. He is economically
conservative and sees moral conservatism is best for human nature. Sodomy does not make a family. The traditional family is the foundation of society and must be protected. "One gender marriages will not give you offspring." He has placed laws into effect which the west would call censorship or racism. Putin shut the sodomites up and protects the children and the Christian Church.
Holy Mother Russia they sought to destroy has been resurrected by Christ with a new and stronger faith. They destroyed Christ the Savior Cathedral but it was rebuilt by Christians in Russia. Thousands of churches and monasteries that have been destroyed have been repaired or are being repaired. "The world should see Orthodox Russia's great feat of rebuilding all that was destroyed", Patriarch Kirill said in 2010.
This article goes on showing to the world an evil and extremely distant United States, from their point of view, and what Obama and his Supreme Court are doing stifles the very freedom they are supposed to uphold. In closing, let us show what the world sees as an answer to the problems of the United States below.
How should good Americans respond?
Penance, prayer and fasting-Matthew 17:21. Also, Fr. John Whiteford suggests, "1) Educate yourself on the issue and be prepared to speak up on it: ...you need to get over the fear of what unbelievers think, and stand for Christ, regardless of the consequences. 2) Understand the times we are living in: ...The Left's goal is the destruction of conservative Christianity. 3) You need to seriously consider your options: ...start thinking about home schooling or private Christian schools ...let your elected representatives know that they need to deal with this issue, and this needs to be more than a one time phone call or e-mail.
This is but one of a few articles from Russia we will display with our comments, and what is revealed is a very weak and evil United States, as viewed by Russia and the world. It is time for good people to stand tall and say loudly this is the straw that breaks Freedom's back and we are going to reclaim or nation.
Stand tall and let it be known to all that no president, Court, or congress will take your religion or freedom away!
