Freedom is a promise EXhomosexuals are determined to spread
July is Exhomosexual Freedom Month, and although we probably won’t have any official proclamation noting this celebration from Barack Obama, the Greater One has already PERMANENTLY proclaimed it.
Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:34-36
Thus, I’ll be publishing a series of articles on the parallels of slavery our forefathers faced from white slaveowners and their supporters in politics. They hated escaped slaves and did everything they could to stop them. I’ll discuss how anti-EXhomosexual gay activists have become the new oppressors, driven by their hatred of former homosexuals. I’ll highlight brave abolitionists who risked much to help freed slaves and how pastors can help freed homosexuals stay free by creating safety networks. Finally, I will talk about how EXGLBT can work together to expand the promise of freedom for all.
The parallel of Harriet Tubman’s statement hit me really hard. Like the unflinching Mrs. Tubman, Ive led many homosexuals out of that slavery into the freedom of holiness. But it comes with the sobering realization that many more will never be free simply because they refuse to acknowledge the bondage of their sin.
But just because some choose to remain blind in their sins, rejecting the offer to be free, it doesn’t meant that our efforts to rescue those who do want freedom will cease.
The fight for freedom from slavery is a difficult one in every sense of the word. Those who seek freedom must often time fight against oppressors and systems which were built to keep them enslaved. In America, it lasted almost 250 years. And the rippling after effects still haunt us to this present day.
Harriet Tubman, the EXslave, had an obsessive passion. It was to see her fellow Americans of African descent freed from the bondage of slavery. Slavery dehumanized people, diminished their self worth and distorted the image of God in humanity. No matter how “good” the master treated a slave by giving them food scraps from his table or allowing them to sleep at night, or not selling their children right away, they were still slaves.
In 1849, Tubman escaped to Philadelphia, then immediately returned to Maryland to rescue her family. Slowly, one group at a time, she brought relatives out of the state, and eventually guided dozens of other slaves to freedom. Her passion and calling was born out of the pain she was most aquainted with. A strong follower of the Christian faith, she believed God had commissioned her to return over and over, even at the risk of her own life to rescue slaves willing to go with her.
The dangers and her enemies were real. Slaveowners hated losing their property. With lost property, went lost financial power. With no slaves to work their cotton fields and tobacco fields, the money flowing into their pockets decreased. Lucrative industries cropped up to assist in denying freedom to slaves. That’s the same idea behind this gay website. White slaveowners wrote passionate diatribes against black people, creating new words, catch phrases and concepts that could be used to keep them powerless. Lawsuits are being filed against us and those who seek to help us for the same reason. Therefore, maintaining wealth and power became the powerful incentive to stop escaping slaves and stop people like Harriet Tubman who risked all to set them free.
When the US Congress which favored slave owners passed the Fugutive Slave Act of 1850, [see the new law passed by gay rights obssessed politicians to stop assistance to teens who want to escape homosexuality], Harriet Tubman was undeterred. She simply changed her strategy and led slaves further north to freedom in Canada where slavery had been abolished.
Freedom is a promise
On gaining her freedom, Tubman later wrote: “When I found I had crossed that line, I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. There was such a glory over everything; the sun came like gold through the trees, and over the fields, and I felt like I was in Heaven.”
The same prayer and faith in the promise of freedom given by God that brought Harriet Tubman and other EXslaves out of physical bondage, brought EXhomosexuals out of spiritual bondage. But now, our prayers of freedom are being widely mocked by the bigoted oppressors as “praying away the gay”. Our efforts to help other homosexuals gain their freedom are being branded “fraudulent and dangerous”. They highlight those who have fallen back into homosexuality as proof that our efforts for freedom are little more than snake oil tactics.
Interestingly enough, after Harriet Tubman escaped the first time from slavery Sept 17, 1849 with her two brothers, she went back. Its believed that her brothers influenced her to go back because they had familial ties they were very hesistant to be separated from. Under this new white hot standard of judgment homosexual activists use against EXhomosexuals who return to homosexuality because they experience separation anxiety, Tubman would be considered a failure and a fraud. She would be considered discredited and thus unqualified to tell other slaves they could be free.
But soon after she returned to slavery, she escaped again —without her brothers— to freedom. It was the genesis of her amazing courage to return numerous times to rescue black slaves and lead them to freedom.
Some people wonder why EXhomosexuals are so passionate about freedom from homosexuality. Why do we talk about it, write about it, testify about it, sing about it, preach about it and fight against our oppressors in the homosexual activist community? It can be traced to one simple reason: we want others to be free from the chains that hold them captive.
Jesus promised freedom to the captives and EXhomosexuals are simply carrying his banner promise. Our enemies hate us for it, but just like the slaveowners couldnt stop Harriet Tubman, they will fail in their efforts to stop us from rescuing people enslaved by homosexuality.
