I just left Al Gore's anti-Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) "Climate Reality Project" because Mr. Gore is conflating pro-homosexuality with anti-global warming. I oppose homosex for a whole host of reasons, not the least of which are scientific. I doubt Mr. Gore has even a tenth the knowledge on the subject has he has on global warming. I am opposed to global warming, but I do not want to be told I am a homophobe by Mr. Gore while helping him combat global warming. I can and have combatted it without him and will continue to do so.
The term "homophobia" was coined to plant the wrong seed that anyone who opposes homosex has an irrational fear of homosexuals. I don't have an irrational fear of homosexuals.
I could write a book here; but, to the point, I see the homosexual movement as having turned decidedly fascistic. I'm far from alone on that. "According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 85% of Americans support the right of the photographer to say no" to having to photograph a homosexual wedding or the like. However, the court in New Mexico just said that a Christian photographer cannot refuse a contract with a homosexual couple to shoot their event. I fully understand the Constitutional arguments, but Mr. Gore appears to be among the group that is ramming homosex down society's throat regardless of one of the founding tenets of the United States: freedom of religion. He appears to be among the group saying that homosex (a fundamental error, as men sodomizing each other is a self-evident mistake) trumps religion.
My New Testament words of Jesus Christ specifically state that a man leaves his parents to marry that man's wife, not his husband. That's just the tip of what I know about this. I've fought as much against the falsehood that homosexuals are born that way as I have fought against the falsehood that burning carbon fuels is harmless or even good.
I hate to leave the Climate Reality Project, but frankly, I think it has made clear that my views are not welcome.
If Mr. Gore changes his mind and approach and clearly stops mixing his homosexual activism with his fight against AGW, I will gladly rejoin his efforts with him.
This is not my attempt to censor him but more so to suggest that Christians who believe Jesus's definition of marriage as being exclusively between one man and one woman and who also believe in what we call "Creation Care" should not be insulted with terms such as "homophobe" from Mr. Gore. He is only harming the cause in doing so.
I do not hate Mr. Gore, though I obviously disagree with him about homosex. In fact, I stated openly at the time that Bill Clinton should resign so that Mr. Gore could assume the Presidency. I considered and still consider Mr. Gore as more intelligent than was or is Mr. Clinton. I also loved the way Mr. Gore stood up against George W. Bush's policies and practices in ways Mr. Clinton could not for reasons of Mr. Clinton's own shortcomings. By the way, Mr. Gore won the election and was the duly elected President of the US. I disagreed with the Supreme Courts political actions. The recount in Florida should have gone on to conclusion before the winner was decided. That is the position that court should have taken.
