Thousands of homosexual activists descended on Washington over the weekend to lobby the Obama administration and Congress for rights based on their behavior. They want the government to classify homosexuals, bisexuals and the transgendered as normal.
A Washington Post column Sunday by a gay ex-soldier said he had been horribly treated in the military though he never told anyone he is homosexual. He said they figured it out when he didn't join in the laughter over dirty jokes and plans to visit prostitutes. Scripture doesn't categorize sin. Paul includes liars, as well as fornicators and homosexuals, among those unrepentant sinners who won't inherit the Kingdom of Heaven.
The gay lobby wants acceptance by culture and to teach your kids in government schools that gay is OK. Some would challenge the right of pastors to say practicing homosexuality is a sin, as is fornication and adultery by heterosexuals.
I'm not sure we have the will to oppose any of this.
