On occasion, I will seek out and read leftist websites and blogs. I find it educational. It's a good gauge of the mood and mind of the left. Invariably, as one would expect, whatever they are railing against, we are for and vice versa. Try it. It's sometimes entertaining to see what upsets the radical left. Be careful though, it can also raise your blood pressure.
For example, I read an article recently posted on the MSNBC website titled, "Silent Supporters become LGBT advocates against church doctrine". Ah yes, the latest cause du jour – LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender) rights.
This latest lefty cause is exactly what many of us on the right have been warning about and predicting. For years now, homosexual advocates have been trying to normalize their lifestyle. More and more we see homosexuals in movies and on TV, sports figures "coming out."
We began the warnings when homosexual advocates claimed they wanted the right to marry. Many on the right looked for a compromise because that's what they are good at – compromise. That "compromise" was civil unions, giving homosexual couples similar legal rights – which is what the dimwitted "compromisers" thought the homosexual whiners wanted.
Well of course, it isn't. The people driving the LGBT ship are radicals. They want to burn down everything that is important, traditional or sacred to us. It's that simple. And many on the right refuse to see this as their possible motive. Therefore, we believe we can compromise with them. This is what "compromise" gets us.
Remember: Promotion leads to tolerance. Tolerance leads to acceptance. Acceptance leads to the equality. Given enough time, that's the way it works… always!
So, when we were told that homosexuals just wanted equal rights under the law, and we shouldn't fear those forcing churches to break with the tradition and doctrine, we should have known it to be a lie.
That is what this article is about. It is the radical homosexual lobby railing that the United Methodists Church (UMC) won't support homosexual marriage and have effectively defrocked a Reverend for overseeing one.
The UMC actually gave the Reverend a choice – live by church doctrine, as he promised he would, or quit. UMC law is crystal clear:
"Members of the clergy are forbidden from presiding over same-sex weddings, or from being self-avowed practicing homosexuals themselves."
But, you see, it doesn't matter what their doctrine or law says. Radical leftists are like spoiled children; worse actually. They want what they want and "no you can't" is not an option for them.
They will not stop, and they see compromise by the right as merely another positive step to their ultimate goal – the destruction of a moral society.
However, we on the right refuse to believe anyone could want such a thing, which is why we compromise a little here and a little there.
We must start looking at the big picture and understand what is really driving these people. It is not an equality, but destruction.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
