Responding to the confusing language, identity issues and theological perspectives espoused by so-called “gay christians”, Kevin Miller, an associate rector at Church of the Resurrection, Wheaton,IL said to World Magazine: “To enshrine gayness as part of your Christian identity, to me, forecloses the possibility of change. “Gay Christian” language makes helping churchgoers more difficult, because it diminishes their hope and their expectation in the Lord that some measure of transformation is possible. “
Mainline denominations which have given themselves over to doctrines of devils are not enjoying a life of fruitful bliss. They are being bled dry of churches and members who decided they will not stay in fellowship with those who reject the truth of the scripture. Many left are old, white graying reprobates who think they are being progressive by teaching that homosexuality is a gift from God. GCM Watch advocates and encourages immediate and permanent separation from any organized body, any fellowship, any religious grouping which condones homosexual practices in any form. Staying will only cause you to die a slow death with them.
Thankfully some are waking up to the reality that reform with these heretics is not possible.
After a 2011 decision allowing gay ordinations, 270 congregations left in 2012 and 2013. And church analysts estimate upwards of another 100 churches may leave by the end of the year as presbyteries vote on a proposal to rewrite the church’s constitution to refer to marriage as being between “two people” instead of the union of “a man and a woman.”
In the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, some 600 congregations left in 2010 and 2011 following the denomination’s 2009 decision allowing the ordination of pastors in same-sex relationships.
That the denominations’ changing stances on gay ordinations and same-sex marriages were a key factor in the exodus is without question. But new research into why congregations decided to leave reveal differences on sexuality issues were only part of a much larger divide.
Among the broader, longstanding concerns that convinced departing congregations that they no longer had a home in their denominations that Carthage College researchers found were:
• “Bullying” tactics by denominational leaders.
• A perceived abandonment of foundational principles of Scripture and tradition.
• The devaluation of personal faith.
“The ones that left said reform was not possible,” said Carthage sociologist Wayne Thompson, study leader.
You read that correctly. The ones who are the loudest shills for “love, acceptance, tolerance and understanding” are the biggest religious bullies on the block. Those who disagree with them will receive no love, no acceptance, no tolerance and no understanding. In other words, reform is not possible. Leave those who are dead to the truth to bury the dead.
David Briggs’ article further explains: Leaders of churches departing from the ELCA said along with the policy on gay ordinations that the denomination was no longer a good fit for their churches and it was important for them to disassociate with the reputation of their former governing body.
More specific reasons included claims that some ELCA leaders were “dictatorial” and that the denomination was undermining the authority of scripture and was more interested in social justice work than traditional ministry, Carthage researchers John Augustine and Brian Hansen reported.
Departing Presbyterian leaders also characterized the policy on gay ordinations as “the straw that broke the camel’s back,” but far from the sole reason.
Their concerns included claims that the denomination was overly politicized and weakening biblical authority and traditional teaching on the divinity of Jesus.
“The situation in the PC (U.S.A.) was hopeless as I see it,” said one Presbyterian pastor who left with his congregation to join the Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians.
“Our new presbytery is … trying to help us be successful without being bullied by a denomination that has turned its back on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
As the angel asked the women looking for the risen Savior, “why do you look for the living among the dead?”
Another one of Barack Obama’s gay honorees is under fire for a sex crime. And its going to be hard to blame this one on the usual scapegoat of homophobia and bigoted white, male conservative republicans. The man hailed as a pioneering gay hero by the New York Times and lauded as a “key player” behind the demise of Dont Ask Dont Tell, will be going to trial for the sexual assault of a gay male Marine officer. It appears the hero used the DADT repeal as an excuse to take advantage of a drunk Marine and did the dirty deed. Unfortunately, the dirty deed has caught up with him. From the Daily Caller
Air Force Lt. Joshua Seefried was initially charged in April, a development that went largely unreported by the media. The charges came about after complaints from U.S. Marine Lt. Edgar Luna, who is also gay.
On a weekend in May of 2012, Seefried had gathered with a group of gay military officers in New York City. Luna was also present, and the group was celebrating the repeal of the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, which Seefried’s organization, called OutServe, had anonymously worked with several of the officers at the event to remove. After a few drinks at a restaurant, Seefried invited some of the officers to join him at his hotel spa. Later, Seefried and Luna reportedly separated off to a private hotel room.
Luna alleged that Seefried then made non-consensual advances on him, but couldn’t remember almost anything that had happened to him after the restaurant because of extreme intoxication. Luna awoke shortly after the incident, totally disoriented and naked.
Seefried’s gay buddies are hoping that the newly passed law intended to will be the ticket to his success.
Hudson said he is troubled over the decision by General Burke to “ignore” the Article 32 investigating officer’s recommendation against proceeding with a court-martial for Seefried.
Hudson said that Seefried ironically would have benefited from a bill stalled in the U.S. Senate that calls for removing military commanders such as General Burke from the decision-making process in sexual assault cases.
Lets be real clear: this sexual assault wasn’t committed by some straight, gay-hating, fag-basher, but by an open, “out and proud” branded gay rights hero. Seefried’s, if found guilty will be one of thousand of rapists and sex offenders on active duty who prey on their own “sexual orientation” pool. According to the DOD Sexual Assault and Prevention Response Report, in 2012 alone, some 14,000 male on male sexual assaults were reported.
Isn’t it strange that this individual who was given such high, historical prominence by the liberal media when he was shilling for gay rights is now a media ghost as a sex assault perp? How could Elisabeth Bumiller, the NYT reporter who wrote the glowing report about Seefried miss this? After all when DADT was repealed he was all over the media. Obama invited him to the White House to witness the repeal signing. Two years after the Seefried article, the Times featured a story about male on male sex crimes, noting :
Sexual assault has emerged as one of the defining issues for the military this year. Reports of assaults are up, as are questions about whether commanders have taken the problem seriously. Bills to toughen penalties and prosecution have been introduced in Congress.
But in a debate that has focused largely on women, this fact is often overlooked: the majority of service members who are sexually assaulted each year are men.
In its latest report on sexual assault, the Pentagon estimated that 26,000 service members experienced unwanted sexual contact in 2012, up from 19,000 in 2010. Of those cases, the Pentagon says, 53 percent involved attacks on men, mostly by other men.
But if failed to mention what would have been a kingpin example of this destructive phenomena by citing the Seefried case. As to the perpetrators of the 14,000 male on male rapes, its not known how many of the perpetrators are gay. There seems to be no interest in identifying people by “sexual orientation” when they are the criminals.
Sad and tragic news from New York. The New York Daily News reported that a gay christian minister was murdered by his unidentified boyfriend after a violent argument on the street. [story link]
“He was a good man,” Stephanie Rodriguez told the Daily News near William Ewell’s childhood home in Mt. Vernon. “His sister found out from police last night. This is shocking. He’s my daughter’s godfather. How am I supposed to tell her this?”
Ewell, who friends said was known as “Darryl,” was quarreling with his boyfriend at Bronx Park East and Mace Ave. near the Bronx Zoo Sunday when the younger man punched his lover, knocking him to the ground, police said.
Ewell later died, police said.
“He was a good person and he treated everyone good,” May Yarborough, 56, said. “His mother had him in church his whole life.”
Ewell also known as Bishop Darrell Ewell was about to start a church called The Universal Church of Love [facebook page] which featured pictures of him embracing a younger man referred to a “First G”. The term “First G[entleman]” was popularized by a homosexual church in Atlanta and is a parody of the black church’s husband-wife church leadership model.
According to the facebook page, “the Universal Church of Love is being formed in NYC. A place for all people to freely worship, seek salvation and prepare for the coming of Christ.”
Its unknown whether the younger man in the picture is the one charged with the crime. Police have not released that information.
Although the national media has been predictably silent about a rich white homosexual man who raped a 15 year old boy, the story is growing in intensity. Terrence Bean, a friend of President Barack Obama and a top Democrat donor to many big name party elites, was arrested and charged with the crime this week in Portland. He founded the ironically named Human Rights Campaign and a gay political funding organization. But his perverted heart and elitist entitlement mentality have now become his undoing.
Gays are quick to get up in arms if someone compares homosexuality to pedophilia, but its little more than superficial “outrage”. As Terrence Bean proves, they are but two sides of the same coin.
OBAMA’S GAY PEDOPHILE FRIENDS
Bean isn’t the first homosexual pedophile the US President has “honored” and kept close to his bosom.
- Obama honored dead homosexual pedophile Harvey Milk with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009
- Last year., Obama honored openly homosexual AZ teen Caleb Laieski who was indicted on more than a dozen counts of sexual misconduct with a minor under the age of 15.
In keeping with the conventional logic of the gay community, the HRC should be shut down and completely dismantled. It is a fraudulent organization that purports to uphold human rights but was founded by a man who destroys the human (and sexual) rights of young male humans. After all, they claim that the now defunct Exodus International was delegitimized simply on the false claim its “founders” returned to homosexuality. If an organization’s founder is responsible for the legitimacy of the organization, then the HRC should be immediately shut down, its assets seized and given to support underage victims of gay sexual abuse.
Bean had remained on the HRC’s Board of Directors until his latest slip up was exposed. His name was then quickly removed.
VICTIMS OF HOMOSEXUAL PEDOPHILES DESERVE THERAPY EQUALITY
Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has been one of the most outspoken proponents in the effort to ban Sexual Orientation Change Effort (SOCE) therapy for minors. They have aided gay activist organizations in California and New Jersey who successfully passed laws to ban SOCE therapy in 2012-2013, and have undoubtedly played a role in the sixteen bills that were introduced in state legislatures across the United States in 2014, fourteen of which already failed this year thanks in part to the #TherapyEquality campaign of Voice of the Voiceless (VoV).But now we have more insight as to why HRC and other gay activists don’t want their victims to have access to SOCE therapy. On Wednesday, detectives from the Portland police Sex Crimes Unit arrested 66 year-old Terrence Patrick Bean, Founder of the Human Rights Campaign and current member of their Board of Directors, on two counts of third-degree sodomy, a felony, and one count of third-degree sex abuse, a misdemeanor. His victim was a 15 year-old boy.“It is outrageous and tragic that the Founder of the largest gay activist organization in the world is molesting boys, while at the same time their leadership is pushing for laws across the United States to keep those same boys out of the counseling office to heal trauma at the hands of homosexual pedophiles,” commented Christopher Doyle, Co-Founder and President of VoV.”
