For years I have heard the homosexual community members (some) say I chose this or that & same for some transgenders. Also, some gay members have had counseling & chose to be straight. In Raleigh, there was a couple, both homosexual, who came to Christ, married straight & minister to others who want out of this "disease"/sin. Like many options, these sins are a choice & will be judged so. Yes, I know there are some with chemical imbalance just as their are less than 1/2% of women who are raped or have become pregnant by incest, but both exceptions get big press for such a tramatic, but small % of the population.
The news on this site has become almost monotonous when it comes to Islam...cause the radicals will continue to do the same things due to the Quran & the majority of Muslims ignore or don't read their holy book.
I will have to disagree. I don't want Satanic anything anywhere but we live in a democratic republic (wislely created by our Christian forefathers) but the same religious freedoms given to we of the Lord are also given to Satanist. This is the problem with Same sex marriage & especially Trans. They are minimizing our Christian rel freedoms with laws. We should not be doing that but be on the streets winning anyone who surrenders to Christ to salvation. The Laws that protect us protect the atheist, agnostics & if we do not give them space, we will see the laws used against us as we already see in other realms of secular humanism, another religion so says Supreme Court). We have bigger fish to fry....so to say.
My pastor & deacon worked in the Arab festival & gently witnessed to a few high born middle easterners. They were able to do so because they shared the defense of their faith in grace & love. They saw these "preachers" egg on the crowd with signs much like the Westboro gang. R they totally ignorant not to see there is NO Jesus in their approach??
