DON'T BE A HOMOSEXUAL FASCIST OR SUPPORT HOMOSEXUAL FASCISTS

You see, I don't agree with Fred Phelps' methods. I don't agree with his Westboro Baptist Church. However, only fascists want to use the violent, threatening, punishing power of the state to prevent him from voicing his opinions (fascist; albeit he doesn't violate mundane protest laws, such as intruding onto private property, etc., that I know of) where others are also equally free to engage in the public debate on the issues.

I see many fascist groups on Facebook calling for banning everybody with whom they don't agree. That's not what that platform is supposed to be about. That's for sites that don't hold themselves out to be what Facebook is claiming to be.

Right now, Facebook leans to the civil-libertarian side. That's where the homosexuals received support, to begin with, for not being violently coerced to stop their homosexual behavior. The fascists, many of them being homosexuals and pro-homosexuals (homosexual fascists), want to change that.

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)

      I think that the best way to deal with the homosexual community is to be as non-judgemental as possible. However of course this does not mean condoning their sin, but to quote the old testament and to say that homosexuality is an abomination and to be self righteous and to heap condemnation on them is not what Jesus would do and it really does not work because I am sure you are not telling the homosexuals anything that they have not heard before.

      I think what Jesus would have done if he had preached in Sodom would be to merely tell the people to listen to their own conscience or the Holy spirit to determine whether or not homosexuality is right or wrong rather than rely on some clergyman or a book of Torah. Of course the main objection from most clergymen of the day would be that these people would listen to the spirit of Satan and would convince themselves that homosexuality was a good thing. Well if the inhabitants of Sodom are so far gone that they would insist that Satan is the Holy Spirit and thier own conscience then you would be wasting your time talking to them. However more times than not a clergyman really does not want to give the Holy Spirit a chance but would rather resort to the old school.

      I think that the methods that Jesus would have employed contrary to the endless condemnation aproach would have proved sucessfull because the inhabitants of Sodom would have come to their own realizations if they chose to repent. And a lot of times repentance comes in stages. A homosexual who still chooses to practice homosexuality may at least choose not to be a murderer and to take precautions to prevent the infection and the spread of disease. However a doctor who practices the old Torah Judaism way would just curse the homosexuals and to say that they hope that they will die of AIDS just like Jonah hoped that God would burn the city of Ninevah.

      I think the major challenge to the ministry of Jesus was not dealing with the prostitutes of the day or the inhabitants of Sodom but the major stumbling block was dealing with the religious leaders of the day that were so self righteous as to think that Jesus was a sinner.

      • Thomas,

        Your comment was in with the spam. It suggests to me that someone somewhere mark a recent comment by you as spam.

        As for your comment, is it directed at me or at others, as in are you saying that I'm being "self righteous" heaping "condemnation on them"? It sounds as if you are, but I leave it to you to clarify before I come to any conclusion about it. The reason it sounds as if you are is because you said in the same paragraph, "I am sure you are not telling the homosexuals anything that they have not heard before." The word "you" there means me without doubt. So you should be able to see why I'm asking about this.

        If you are calling me self-righteous and saying that I'm heaping judgment upon them, as in the exact judgment that Jesus says not to apply, then I will say that you've misread me and are missing things (things have fallen through the cracks not of my making). I strive for righteousness. Doing so is completely consistent with everything Jesus preaches and did himself. It's a disservice to call anyone who is doing that "self-righteous" in the pejorative sense you've used it.

        I will suggest to you, Thomas, that you appear to me to be fence sitting more than a bit here, but perhaps you'll disabuse me of that view via a well-directed reply.

        As for Jesus in Sodom, what Torah was there then? He said if the deeds and signs had been done, they would have repented.

        The homosexuals of today have the words of Jesus but still don't all repent. Consider it.

        Furthermore, I am not speaking to them (the ones who won't repent) alone if at all (if they can even hear me, which is doubtful). I am speaking to others who call themselves Christian to speak out to make clear that homosexuality is not condoned or accepted and especially is not to be promoted. Tolerance as in not using violent coercion and the like is the line.

        Shall I keep that truth, that light, under a bushel for the sake of political correctness? I will not. I will stand in the gap speaking truth for the sake of the land. Jesus did it. The Earth will be saved on account of it.

        Really, Thomas, I feel you diminishing here. Is this a touchy subject for you? I ask in no sarcastic sense.

        The Holy Spirit comes off as harsh to the homosexuals, Thomas. It's not the Spirit's fault. It's the fault of the homosexuals and those who coddle them in their iniquity, not calling them in strong terms to repent for the very sake of their souls. It's not loving to coddle them. Jesus did not coddle the Pharisees or Sadducees whom he loved as I do also.

        A homosexual who still chooses to practice homosexuality may at least choose not to be a murderer and to take precautions to prevent the infection and the spread of disease. However a doctor who practices the old Torah Judaism way would just curse the homosexuals and to say that they hope that they will die of AIDS just like Jonah hoped that God would burn the city of Ninevah.

        Now, I hear you there trying to grapple with the truth, which is right to do. However, you have to understand and to not mince your words about it. The phrase "turn or burn" is true. We are talking about souls that refuse to repent and who do go down. Proverbially, literally, or figuratively, they do go down into greater pain and suffering. Satan gets them more and more in that direction.

        Thomas, so-called safe-sex or not, the issue is self lust and where that path leads. It is the war in the members which spirit brings on all the various manifestations of evil: war and greed, etc. It is unwholesomeness that is the death of the soul. Relative sin exists, but we are to turn from all of it to be one with God the perfectly righteous.

        We are called to speak out loudly and clearly and plainly so that the lost sheep will turn around forevermore.

        Sodom is gone. We are faced with the here and now. There are souls who have not heard the truth because it is censored. Surely you know that just from having read so much of this site. The message here has been censored deliberately to prevent especially the youth from hearing the truth about scripture and Jesus's message vis-a-vis homosexuality. They are being told the lies that it is immutable, not a choice, and acceptable in Jesus's eyes.

        Thomas, Jesus dealt with the prostitutes and the tax collectors and the money changers and the militarists and all the rest including the lip-service Pharisees. As for Jesus ever having sinned, he said he was being made strait. What does that mean?

        The biggest stumbling block was the Chief Priest. Herod, Pilate, and then Caesar were influenced against the Zealots. The Chief Priest was a fool (said with cause). He thought Jesus's death would be as a sacrificial lamb protecting him in his position.

        I await your thoughtful reply.

        Peace,

        Tom

        • Please, everyone, remember that this post is entitled: DON'T BE A HOMOSEXUAL FASCIST OR SUPPORT HOMOSEXUAL FASCISTS.

          There are fascist homosexuals going around literally terrorizing people. They are demanding that the secular state punish me for my writings here. They lobby for it. They encourage corporations to engage in it (unjustified censorship, etc.).

          Take the right stand, which is also a strong stand.

      Of course there is no doubt in my mind that if the Pharasee's had hired male prostitutes and turned the temple into a gay bath house that Jesus would have cleansed the temple. And it is totally reasonable to expect clergyman in any legitimate church to abstain from homosexuality and to be either celibate or the husband of one wife and not to perform gay marriages. However I am not talking about church leaders who must be held to a higher standard and judged with much rigor but rather church members who should rather be free of as much judgement as possible but rather have their own conscience decide what is right and wrong.

      Now on the view of censorship I think unless a gay man was born yesterday he has probably heard it a million times bible verses condemning homosexuality and preachers trying to cure him. So this idea that we have to sound the trumpet and warn gays more than once will probably fall on death ears or make them want to rebel even more. So my idea is to rather teach people how to listen to the Holy Spirit and then they can decide what is right or wrong based on the law written on their own hearts.

      As far as relative sins go an example is given concerning female homosexuality versus male homosexuality. Although the bible considers both sins to be unnatural acts it is nevertheless a known fact that only male homosexuality was considered according to Torah to be a capital offense. Now of course according to Christian ethics a capital punishment would not be enforced but the reason why the Torah judged this act so harshly was because it was not only an unnatural act but an unclean act that could spread deadly disease. However with lesbianism it is much more difficult to contract a disease so in effect lesbians could get away with their sin because no punishment was prescribed to them according to Torah however the Torah did not forbid the verbal criticism of lesbianism which the apostle Paul was famous for.So my point is that if gays practice safe sex is it not reasonable to assume that the sin is reduced from an unclean act to merely an unnatural act just like it is with lesbianism? And if not why did the Torah let lesbians get away with their sin all these years?

      The truth is that no one who truly listens to their conscience ever gets away with their sins.

      Now considering Sodom there is no doubt in my mind that if anyone had ever tried to teach them ethics he probable would have ended up getting raped. However a true prophet who tells people to listen to their own hearts concerning the matter and does any Sodomite hate himself so much that he would not listen to his own heart? This is why I believe that the message of Jesus would have been very sucessfull even to people of Sodom who were so far gone that they did not have any hope.

      • Of course there is no doubt in my mind that if the Pharasee's had hired male prostitutes and turned the temple into a gay bath house that Jesus would have cleansed the temple.

        Well, inadvertently on your part, this aids those homosexuals who applied a perverted twist on Higher Criticism and come up with that Jesus was only opposed to male prostitutes in the Temple.

        And it is totally reasonable to expect clergyman in any legitimate church to abstain from homosexuality and to be either celibate or the husband of one wife and not to perform gay marriages. However I am not talking about church leaders who must be held to a higher standard and judged with much rigor but rather church members who should rather be free of as much judgement as possible but rather have their own conscience decide what is right and wrong.

        This is not right, Thomas. Leaders do need to be out front in clean and holy living else they don't lead right; however, we are a priesthood of believers. We are to be members of a level congregation. There are not two standards in Christianity. Jesus didn't tell anyone that he or she is to be held to a higher standard. He calls each and all who hears him to rise as high as that one is given to comprehend. If a congregant practices homosexuality, that one is to undergo the congregation-wide progressive discipline set out by Christ where in the end if that one doesn't repent and change, he or she is marked a heathen and no member of the Church. The Church is not the Church with homosexuals within. There are not homosexuals in the Highest. It would not be the Highest were it otherwise.

        Now on the view of censorship I think unless a gay man was born yesterday he has probably heard it a million times bible verses condemning homosexuality and preachers trying to cure him. So this idea that we have to sound the trumpet and warn gays more than once will probably fall on death ears or make them want to rebel even more. So my idea is to rather teach people how to listen to the Holy Spirit and then they can decide what is right or wrong based on the law written on their own hearts.

        First of all, I don't agree with calling homosexuals "gay." I am sometimes gay but never homosexual. They don't own the word and never should have been allowed by the people to appropriate the word, as if they are truly "gay." Homosexuality is a fallen condition. There is nothing gay in it. The same applies to the rainbow, which they do not own. I love rainbows, but I am never homosexual. If I use the rainbow as a symbol, I am never condoning or promoting or excusing homosexuality on any level.

        Of course this point of yours about speaking truth to long-time adult homosexuals and letting them be sorted by whether and to what degree they accept it, this is how it has always been with Christ. It does not though address the tens of millions, even hundreds of millions and billions, now hearing the lie that homosexuality is inborn, not mutable, and therefore never a choice. It is that that I speak to the youth. It also does not address the lying arguments used by homosexuals to convince the naive and gullible concerning scripture and where Jesus stood and stands on the issue of homosex. Unless the youth hear the opposing view that is the real truth, unless we as Christians speak out, we have their "blood" on our hands. It is our sacred duty to speak the truth that those homosexuals, such as the so-called Christian bishop, V. Gene Robinson, are lying about and distorting the real message of Jesus.

        Robinson is an unrepentant, homosexual adulterer allowed to be a bishop in the Episcopal Church for crying out loud. There are children being dragged to that church to be indoctrinated into the lies. We aren't talking just about saving homosexuals. We're talking about sparing children from the clutches of iniquitous liars who lie about your savior and your God.

        You're being wishy-washy about it here, Thomas. You're saying those liars may sit in your pews openly continuing their lies to the congregation and most importantly to the youngest and most impressionable children. You are not sounding the trumpet to warn. You are saying that the adult homosexuals in the churches have heard it all before, so shut up. That approach is not being an ally of Christ, Thomas. You're aiding the other as he devours the youth right before your eyes. Don't tell me you can't see it. I know better.

        As for lesbianism and also so-called safe-sex, it matters not that the Torah doesn't tell you that lesbians should be put to death. It matters what Christ and God think now. As for "safe-sex," the transmission of the disease of homosexuality is not prevented by a mundane condom. There is no such thing as a harmless homosexual desire or act. Surely you know this. Those condoms break and slip too, but even if they didn't it wouldn't mitigate the selfish caving into lust that lies at the heart of all that ails humanity.

        The truth is that no one who truly listens to their conscience ever gets away with their sins.

        The truth is that no one ever gets away with sin, period.

        As for Sodom, Jesus said what he said. They would have repented. This generation is unwilling to stop and to change based upon the recorded words of Jesus. They are hell bent for twisting everything they can for the sake of being sanctioned by the masses. I do not, nor will I, sanction them. They are not members of my Church and never will be. Only those seeking the real truth enter. Only those of the repenting heart enter and remain even for awhile. Only those who are the most fertile soil for the seed that is the word of God from Jesus will remain. So be it. I ask God to lift us there to stay. I'm sick of Hell. Let the demons stay behind. That's their choice.
