Sometimes comments back and forth can end up meriting becoming posts. Sometimes those comments and posts merit becoming a series. Such is the case here. The back and forth has become too extensive and involved and defining to be left to the comment section of just one post.
We encourage readers to read through this short series to glean the truth.
The comments began in the article, "Mark the Beginning of the Reversal of the Hypocritical Homosexual Agenda." That post concerned J.K. Rowling, authoress of the Harry Potter series of children's fantasy books, stating that one of the main characters in the series named Dumbledore was a homosexual.
I wrote the following:
I never read any Harry Potter books. I know many adults who did, however. They saw no harm in the stories. My daughter was inundated at every turn by them. I was only her flesh father. Such flesh fathers aren't able to determine that to which their children will be exposed, not in this divided house called America. The money-makers loved Harry Potter. Money has been more important than souls to most Americans. Thankfully, that's changing, because we are speaking out. We are speaking truth.
Well, I saw the first Harry Potter movie at my child's insistence. I also thought it my duty to see that to which my child and all the other children were being exposed by the general society. I saw in it all the partial truths used to lure the children away from the message of whole truth. I did my best to explain the deceptiveness to my child. So, I was familiar with this name "Dumbledore." Now, this name has shown up twice in the mainstream news via the words "Dumbledore is gay."
The first time I saw it today, I ignored it. That the headline showed up again on another site meant that the dark forces were up to something with it. Well I read the following article after clicking the link to see were the dark powers were leading the children astray in mass.
I inserted the article from abcnews.go.com and then went on to say the following:
So what is going to happen? Well, this is going to crush the Harry Potter phenomenon. Many people who had been duped are going to come to very quickly. Even now, many Harry Potter books and movies are disappearing from bedroom shelves in houses of parents who now can't help but see what is behind it all. They have every right to censor what is in their houses. In fact, they have a duty.
This is going to increase home schooling and private schools. It is going to increase segregation. The separation along the lines of sexual harmlessness versus sexual harm will increase. It has to. That separation will also increase along the lines of giving and sharing versus greed and pacifism versus violence. It is prophesied.
That is why the Real Liberal Christian Church is right and has been from its inception. These things that are coming out are only serving as signs of the correctness of the path we are offering.
J.K. Rowling just did what is termed shooting oneself in the foot. She has exposed herself for the evil influenced she is. It had to be though. The Holy Spirit is exposing all evil. Greed, violence, and sexual harm are all from the same source. It is all of the selfish spirit. It is all antichrist.
Laura Mallory is quoted above as having said, "A homosexual lifestyle is a harmful one," she added. "That's proven, medically." That's nearly verbatim of what our readers have been seeing on this website from the beginning. Words of truth spread quickly. That cannot be denied. The truth is coming out. This marks the turning point. Note it.
God bless everyone so the light of truth about the harm of homosexuality and the lie about souls being unable to change will come out. It is coming out. This marks the beginning of the reversal for the homosexual agenda. It is good.
Soon you will see that consistency (giving and sharing, pacifism, and sexual harmlessness) will become the agenda. These Three Pillars of real Christianity will bring conflation and the Christian Commons. You can be a part of it. Let us save souls from the darkness of this world. Let us bring the light.
Please help this minister to continue this message full-time. Help with whatever you are able, but help with some amount.
The string of comments began as follows:

I've never read so much rubbish written by one person in my entire life.
The Harry Potter books are FANTASY. Can't you stupid religious nutcases understand that?
IT'S NOT REAL!
As for Laura Mallory saying, "A homosexual lifestyle is a harmful one," and adding "That's proven, medically", where is this proof?
A homosexual lifestyle is equally as harmful as a heterosexual lifestyle.
One of things of greatest harm to a homosexual lifestyle is the bigoted claptrap spouted by people such as her - Someone without a shred of understanding of another individuals lifestyle, nor even an attempt to understand.
Religion, in some circumstances, is a wonderful thing. A focus for people, a community of shared interests, a bringing together of people with (in most cases) good hearts and intentions. But it's also an avenue of opportunity for the bigots of society to bash, demean and criticise everyone else they don't agree with.
Whatever happened to religion bringing EVERYONE together, despite their differences and accepting EVERYONE for who they are as individuals?
Whatever happened to the love, understanding, the outstretched arms in welcome?
I'm a gay man. I'm in love with another man. Remember that word 'Love'?
To suggest to anyone - especially the younger population - that being in love with someone, even if of the same sex, is wrong is truly disgraceful.
You people really need to get a grip of yourselves and open your eyes a little.
We're not monsters, nor are we disciples of some evil form. We're human - just like you. We just happen to live our lives a little differently.
And for the record, I'm a christian myself. The fact I'm gay makes no difference. I know God loves me just as much as he loves you.
There were other comments, but this couple chose to create a comment thread. I will include just our replies to them although the other comments are worth reading as well and can be seen at the bottom of the article, "Mark the Beginning of the Reversal of the Hypocritical Homosexual Agenda."
Our reply begins in the next post.
The following should appear at the end of every post:
According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":
Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.
Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.
Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.
Political Campaign Intervention
Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.
Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.
Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:
- Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
- Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
- Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
- Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
- Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office
Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:
- The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
- Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
- We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
- When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
- It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
- We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
- We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
- When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
- We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
- It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.
And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
