A sodomite, a tranny, and a lesbian calling themselves born again Christians, touring with other "Christian"groups, singing praise and worship songs. Huh? Not unlike the openly gay Episcopal Pastors, how in the world do they justify this and reconcile it with the Bible? However they do it, talk about some twisted logic.
There are groupings of so called "Gay" Christians worldwide who view one of their main objectives as rewriting or re-interpreting those portions of Gods word which condemn their perversion.
See for instance http://www.courage.org.uk/
This site includes an archive by a once famous 'reformed' pastor who abandoned his wife and children to pursue a perverts life and now spends most of his time trying to demonstrate from the bible that homosexuality is not sin!

The implication of this statement by Franklin Graham and his daddy's organisation is that they accept Mormonism as of equal status to their theological beliefs. In other words they see them as Christian and Biblical.
Where does this blindness come from?
The Biblical Reformers such as the Canons of Dordt writers were correct Arminianism is dangerous, unBiblical and heretical.
"What the Arminian wants to do is to arouse man's activity: what we want to do is to kill it once for all---to show him that he is lost and ruined, and that his activities are not now at all equal to the work of conversion; that he must look upward. They seek to make the man stand up: we seek to bring him down, and make him feel that there he lies in the hand of God, and that his business is to submit himself to God, and cry aloud, 'Lord, save, or we perish.' We hold that man is never so near grace as when he begins to feel he can do nothing at all. When he says, 'I can pray, I can believe, I can do this, and I can do the other,' marks of self-sufficiency and arrogance are on his brow." (C. H. Spurgeon)

John, there may be different authors, but the site appears to be too well constructed for me to think that the sentiments in all the articles have not been vetted or that they are haphazard and do not seek to present a uniform view of calvinism. Even the article against Andrew Fuller is a give away! Compare this nonsensical and hugely biased article with the enthusiasm with which Fuller is received by no lesser historian than Michael Haykin!
The website undoubtedly presents "Heperism" writ large!

And don't forget America, the liberal disease which has diminished and abated Scottish/British justice has just been voted into your White House. First it destroys moral standards then it drains all authority and decency from society. (Or perhaps first it destroys the church)
