The Cunning Plan

A continuation of my critical look at Bill Muehlenberg’s anti-gay book.

I mentioned earlier that his book reads like a propaganda/conspiracy theory. If you take in his scathing “profile of a homosexual” you would be fearful as he gives examples of “the homosexual agenda”. But each time this happens it is worth stepping back and taking a deep breath and asking yourself “What is actually happening here?” For instance he has a chapter dedicated to how the “homosexuals” (gee he uses that word a lot) are targeting our children. Oh No! Not our children. But I ask you, isn’t that the best way to stop a cycle of bigotry?…..educate the children. See, no need for fear. He also tells us our freedom of religion is in danger! Oh no! Not our freedom……But I ask you, should any religion be free to hurt and damage people? See, no need to fear.

Part of this evil agenda is to make it look like “homosexuals” are discriminated against and lack human rights. This isn’t a cunning plan it is fact – in my own church, the LCA, there are employees who fear coming out because they would lose their jobs! If that isn’t discrimination…..I’ll rephrase that….unfair discrimination I don’t know what is! Anyways, if you take a deep breath and let the fear subside you will realize all of Bills arguments are irrational and often ludicrous. Here’s a couple of examples.

Quote: “The push for homosexual rights, as we have seen, is the main means by which the homosexual lobby seeks to further its agenda. By talking about discrimination, civil rights and minority status, the impression is created that homosexuals lack basic human rights that others enjoy, and that they are a persecuted minority……one’s behaviour should not be the basis of civil rights legislation. Homosexuality is not a benign factor like race or gender, but is primarily a behaviour based activity. We do not extend special rights to other behaviour based groups, like smokers or stamp collectors.”

A disappointed stamp collector lights up……

Another quote :  “Homosexual activists have made many noisy demands over the years and have done quite well, often at the expense of other groups who may in fact exhibit more genuine need. Anthony Butcher offers this example: ‘In 1992, with some 250 000 Australians suffering from major mental illness, approximately $8.2 million was spent on psychiatric research. In the same year $10.6 million was spent on AIDS research, even though by December 1994, the total number of AIDS cases diagnosed had reached only 5732’ For a “poor persecuted minority group”, homosexuals have done quite well out of the public purse.”

I just had to include these quotes – not sure what I want to say, I am speechless, I think they speak for themselves. Please for the love of God be as horrified as me! The gay lobby is fighting for basic human rights, and Christians are fighting against it.

I did look up a site that spoke about what human rights our gay brothers and sisters need and are asking for, if your interested you will find it here.

Bill offers one more solid concrete proof that gays are like smokers, and all they have to do is quit, but that is my next blog…..while your waiting for my next blog have a look at another blog by lcamyopinion about how to respond to gay children….click here

  1. Nobody chooses to be gay, they just are. I’m sick and tired of hearing bigot’s opinions on this issue. Really what are they afraid off?

    Good Question, Michelle. It got me asking it myself. What are they afraid of?

    They fear… God’s wrath for that person… ??? Hmmm… A bit strange is it not? Should they not leave it between that person and God anyway!? Or is it something more personal.

    iTS VERY SAD THAT PEOPLE CHOSE NOT TO UNDERSTAND GOD’S WORD THAT POINTS OUT HOMOSEXUALITY AS SIN JUST LIKE ANY OTHER FORM OF SEXUAL SIN, LIKE ADULTERY, FORNICATION, BIGAMY, INCEST ETC…
    WE ALL HAVE STRONG DESIRES AT TIMES, AND FACES TEMPTATION JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. BUT, WE ALSO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO RAISE OUR GUARD AND SAY “NO”. WE HAVE CONSCIENCE TELLING US OF WHATS RIGHT OR WRONG, WHATS NORMAL AND WHATS NOT; WHAT’S NATURAL AND WHAT’S NOT. COME ON! IF WE TAKE OUT GOD’S WORD, WHAT ARE WE LEFT WITH? ABSOLUTE CHAOS. SO PLEASE STOP PLAYING GOD. GO AND LIVE IN NORTH KOREA.

      Thanks for your concern. As far as your comments about natural and unnatural – homosexuality can be observed in many other species so I guess it is natural. I have never been tempted to have a relationship with a man, God made me naturally heterosexual. I’m happy living here thanks.
