Ban on same-sex couples roils small Christian college
On a recent fall day, a group of protesters gathered in a university courtyard, many holding rainbow flags. About 100 students and faculty members were fighting for LGBTQ rights on campus.
The scene was unusual, though ‚Äď in some ways radical ‚Äď given that the location was Azusa Pacific University, a Christian college, and that the debate was over how God would view the issue of same-sex couples.
‚ÄúThis isn‚Äôt something sinful, God,‚ÄĚ one student said, leading the emotional gathering. ‚ÄúThis is something beautiful. I pray that we continue to live out the mission of being difference-makers, God, that this world be a place of equality, God.‚ÄĚ...
Many Christian Colleges that provide federal student loans to students will get in line and flush the toilet of morality and permit sodomites and transgender people to flood the college and route the administration to acceptance and then their god will dictate terms. If that‚Äôs a problem, then just wait till congress switches hands and removes the tax status to churches and states who will be your pastor, who translation will be an approved text. But great news, we‚Äôve been here before, and God is still on his throne and judgment will come, praise God.
‚ÄúUntil there is queer leadership who are in charge of implementing policy, there will never be a sustainable change,‚ÄĚ said Duvauchelle, a [Azusa]social worker.
God's Word is slowly waxing cold; commands, rules and instructions for days gone by, but not suited for this new age of man, is the thought process of the new, progressive "Christians". Love whom you're drawn to, just be you, just do you, and don't be ashamed of how "God" made you...celebrate it, flaunt it, and fight those who would deny you your rights and your happiness...hate them, villify them, litigate them....this is our time.
Does man define how man lives or does God? Does man define was is beautiful or does God? Does man define the boundaries of romantic love or does God? Those are ultimately the questions these people will have to answer and ultimately answer for.
