LGBT issue vs Straight Talk

“And you shall know them by their fruit.” (Matthew 7:15)

I’m a heterosexual. I think in today’s society I’m still allowed to be. But am I allowed to say it?

In past decades, those with sexual identity different from the biological norm have been castigated, and their grief was more than understandable; condemnation was rife. However today, “Western” society is bearing the brunt of their pain as the pendulum seems to have swung from one extreme to the other.

The anger, pain and bitterness that the LGBT community and those who support it have expressed has become monstrous, and as a heterosexual I feel my identity and freedom are under threat. Some of their anger is understandable, considering historically, they’ve been judged and excluded, criminalised and demonised for centuries. But now, those who speak physiological truth are under attack.

Society has gone to great lengths to encourage people who are “gay” and to show them acceptance. In Christian circles as well as outside the Church, this acceptance is in the name of Love, even God’s love. But God is Truth as well as Love, and He is justice as well as mercy. I’m very concerned that over this issue, the Church does not see clearly that Satan is attacking society, including the Christian community, with this issue, and blurring the clarity and common sense of the Gospel.

Love is good, kind, gentle, patient, doesn’t keep a record of wrongs (1 Corinthians 13), but God is not only Love. And even if God were to be summed up with one word, Love, then Love is not only acceptance, but also responsibility and accountability.

What is the fruit of accepting the LGBT community in the way it has done in the last decade or two?

In schools, innocent children are confused, being asked to consider whether they’d like to be a boy or a girl.  Young people are encouraged to try gay sex before they confirm whether they are gay, straight or bi.

I like men as people, I like women as people. But I wouldn’t engage in sex with someone in order to discover my identity.

Gay parade marchers exhibit orgy-like behaviour on the streets in front of children, in the name of sexual freedom; however, heterosexual behaviour in like fashion would be considered pornographic, or at least beyond the 9 o’clock watershed*.

People en masse seem to be buying into the indoctrination that, all in the name of love, society is meant to welcome gay and straight sex as equal and not to be judged. To suggest one who lives as a transvestite has no psychological issues is taboo. And those who do oppose the new sexual freedoms in any way are now demonised. 

But as for me, I am deeply concerned about the confusion being put upon innocent children. And I am deeply surprised at the confusion in the Church. We have turned the truth upside down and reality has become confused.

Personally, my values in personhood are being sabotaged by an incessant barrage of the LGBT narrative, suggesting that life is about exploring sexual freedom in defiance of biological reality. Random sex, gay or straight, has been proven to be unhealthy both physically and psychologically.

I am tired of being bombarded by images of two men or women kissing romantically or of gay sexual encounters being displayed on tv screens, because it makes me wonder whether two men or two women walking down the street together are gay or straight, and I don’t particularly like my thought-life being invaded.

The LGBT agenda has been successful in obtaining LGBT freedom of expression; why aren’t they willing to stop there? It’s gone far beyond that into indoctrination of society to “think and do” as we do.

I hate it.

Strong words? Please respond as to whether you agree or disagree with me. Time is short. We may not have the freedom to disagree much longer.


*9 o’clock watershed refers to the time after which television censorship is considerably lifted as it is seen as after the viewing/bed time of children under the age of 12 or 15.
