PBS interviews SermonAudio broadcaster about the "Faith in America" (homosexual activist group) that targeted Greenville, SC recently
Those speaking out for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders, known as the LGBT, are led by a former United Methodist minister, Jimmy Creech, who was defrocked for marrying a gay couple. Creech speaks of trying to end what he calls religion-based bigotry.
Kevin Boling (Mountain Bridge Bible Fellowship Church, Travelers Rest, SC, speaking at radio interview): There's a major discrepancy here and a contrast between our view of the Bible and the view of the Faith in America group. We're not hateful of the homosexual. We condemn all criminal acts of violence.
The premise is if we speak what we believe, if we say that homosexuality is sin, that in some way this is going to result in violence against those in the gay community.
This group seems to be all about tolerance, but there doesn't seem to be much tolerance for people that hold another opinion.
Ah, right, yeah, he was a minister in Omaha, but hey, what to expect from a mainline church? But then, as the Methodist Surgeon-General appointee said,"'Homosexuality Isn't Natural or Healthy'" He has been doing quite a bit of back-pedaling on the obvious truth of that statement. It is also a sin,"The Bible Says Homosexuality is Sin." http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=92807123612
"LGBT" (lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders)?
Interesting that the "ladies" are mentioned first in this achronym.
Such was not always the case.
When I was in college there was the standard "gay and lesbian" club. There was as yet no "bisexual" or "transgender" component, as these were (I suppose) still considered taboo at that time (late 1980s).
Is it because these people are "gentlemen", and insist on "ladies first"...or is it that the "ladies" are more dominant in this whole den of deviency? My general knowledge of post-modernism causes me to favor the latter possibility.
At any rate, I'm thankful for Kevin Boling's response to this issue, and hope/pray it will at least slow down the growth of the LGBT achronym from attaining additional letters over time, like "V" for Vampirism, and P for Pedophelia, and "B" for Bestiality, etc.
One cannot underestimate the progress of human depravity if/when all restraints are removed.
