Fed Judge Declares Anti-Gay Sermon a "Crime Against Humanity"
A federal judge ruled that a biblically based denunciation of homosexuality was a âcrime against humanity.â
In his decision in the case of Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG) v. Lively, U.S. District Court Judge Michael Ponsor held that Scott Lively, an evangelical pastor, was âaiding and abetting a crime against humanityâ when Lively spoke in Uganda and in America against homosexual behavior.
Ponsor wrote in his 79-page opinion that Livelyâs message was âanalogous to a terrorist designing and manufacturing a bomb in this country, which he then mails to Uganda with the intent that it explode there.â
The plaintiff in the case is a consortium of groups based in Kampala, Uganda that fight for âfair and equal treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) peopleâ in the East Africa region....
The judge will receive his recompense in due season.However there is another concern as to his Legal superiors.Are they proposing that Christians be now jailed for merely stating the biblical position on the matter?Even so Lord Jesus come.
This judge should is not only a disgrace to his profession, but a threat to our nation by attacking the constitutionally guaranteed freedoms of all Americans. He obviously feels he has the authority to criminalize any viewpoint or any moral value system that run contrary to his own warped worldview. Mr. Lively has committed no crime; but Judge Ponsor has acted in criminal disregard of the Constitution. He has abused the power of the judiciary, and should be removed at once from the bench. Our nation does not need any more Constitution-trampling, freedom-hating judges like this one. We have enough troubles as it is.
Reading about matters like this reminds me of Esau and his pottage. All he could focus on was what he wanted, the fulfillment of his appetite right then and right there, with no thought for the future or eternity--until it is too late. How utterly foolish for people to be ruled by their lusts, sexual or otherwise. Some of them may or may not know that it will cost them inheritance in the kingdom of God, and some care not. They are laughing and having their "fun" now, but, alas, it will not last.
Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Rom 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
They are seemingly winning and at times a battle is won..however the war is not over and rest assured God is still in control and like Christropher I find these things very interesting and troubling at the same time..just look at what's happening allover the world. Maybe I see all this and am not too surprised because I read a book written by David Wilkerson called "The Vision" and that was in 1974 the things he said are like reading today's newspaper..he gives scriptures and all for what he says..he now has a revised edition which adds up to date material but doesn't take away from the original. Very, very interesting to me because I really like to read about prophecy in the Bible and keep an eye on world events and watch them unfolding.
Christopher000, Yes, the proponents of this perversion, without any proof beyond emotion, say homosexuals are born that way. How demonic considering the consequence of that (ill) logic. So, polygamist, pedophiles, and those practicing bestiality are "born" that way as well? If sexual deviant inclination is enough, then there are NO limits whatsoever. Hello Sodom and Gomorrah!
Thanks for the 2nd paragraph, 1517. I know my posts tend to read a bit different than I intend them to at times. Actually, winning hadn't even crossed my mind, but rather, simple amazement at how what once seemed to be a minority, climbed out from the gutters, and into the limelight so quickly. The turn around is so incredible that what was once considered to be a mental illness is now even glamorous and fashionable. For me, the most irritating part is that they are teaching the new generation that it is not a choice.
Christopher000, They are not "winning" anything, they are being turned over to a debased mind. Romans 1 clearly spells out how God judges; He hardens hearts and gives then over to their depravity. This is chilling if you think about it. We truly need to approach these events using God's perspective. Nevertheless, I understand your amazement. The homosexual ripple has turned tsunami rather quickly.
Consider how much farther we have fallen in just a few short years. Really incredible that we are seeing prophesy unfold before our eyes. Keeping it simple, just the changing views on homosexuality is astonishing to me. Who would have thought that they would have risen to such great power when they were cowering in their closets and considered mentally ill not all that long ago? How did the sodomites become such a powerful force to be reckoned with so swiftly? Who would have ever thought that speaking out against the disgusting, unnatural act would be considered a hate crime; a crime against humanity? Wow. Like others have said, now that this is considered acceptable and natural, I have to wonder what will be next on the agenda?
I could care less what he thinks is a crime against humanity, the God of the universe declares sodomy an abomination and he doesn't like it he can plead his case before the Lord at the White Throne of Judgment before he gets cast into a lake of fire.
