Phil vs. The GLAADiators

In my previous article I mused: “I can’t help but wonder when the LGBT troops will join the fracas because transracial Santa—despite the queer hat and suit—isn’t quite gay enough.”
As it turns out it wasn’t a long wait at all. The LGBT militants are out in full force attacking Santa’s not so jolly lookalike, Phil Robertson.
LGBT and their leftist storm-troopers are in quite a dither because Robertson had the audacity to say,
Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers – they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.
Thus far we’ve not had any of the aforementioned “drunkards” stumble forward or “swindlers” swing into action; but the “homosexual offenders” have come out with a vengeance. Predictably the ever shrill gay activist group, GLAAD, is decrying Robertson’s remarks as “vile.”
However, Phil’s “vile” remarks are merely a paraphrase of the Apostle Paul’s teaching found in 1Corinthinans 6:9.
And that’s the problem.
Much to GLAAD’s chagrin, Christians believe the Bible is true, that it is the word of God. Consequently, Christians believe morality is defined and imposed by God, not GLAAD. This belief makes GLAAD most unhappy, unhappy, unhappy.
To be sure GLAAD is partially correct—there is vileness here. But it’s not in the Duck Commander’s words. No, the vileness is in the raging lusts which fuel homosexual behavior.
For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due (emphasis mine, Romans 1:26-27).
It has been said that truth is hate speech to those who hate truth. Surely this is correct. As the thought police grow increasingly bold and draconian, public discourse withers in the shadows of liberty’s fading sun.
You see, dear reader, there is one thing the “tolerance” crowd cannot tolerate: Freedom of thought and expression. It cannot tolerate such freedom because it cannot tolerate opposition. But oppose we must!
So don’t give in. Stand your ground. Speak your mind. And keep reading and thinking.
