Launching a rebuke to the leadership of his denomination, Dr. Edward L. Johnson of Lincolnville, SC charged that many in COGIC leadership are closet inclusionists waiting for the moment to turn the 108 year old black pentecostal denomination into a den of sex thieves: “In just the past 108 years God raised up the Church Of God In Christ with the purest Biblical practices since the birth of the New Testament Church. Even racism was brought to its knees for a brief period in Bishop Mason’s ministry. Magic Johnson, a “poster child” for the LGBT community has officially infiltrated our ranks as a (COGIC member). (Listen to his admitted statement with Anderson Cooper during the Donald Sterling debacle.) All it takes for the Church Of God In Christ to change its position against same sex marriage is for enough of the Johnson and Rush types to “creep” into our church. And trust me, there are many that are not highly visible but believe just like them among us. If people will not obey the Bible—what makes you think they will obey your constitution?” [source]
The latest cannon blast in the gay marriage wars didn’t come from Christian conservatives or the “religious right”. It blew up inside the homosexual movement and originated with two iconic gay men.
Famed Italian luxury fashion kingpins Dolce and Gabbana, who are both gay, shocked the worldwide homosexual rights movement by saying “marriage has a natural flow” and calling gay “families” “synthetic”. A brilliant analogy from two men who rose to fame by using only real components in their clothing and fashion items which is why the brand is so expensive. Synthetic fabrics are textiles made from man-made rather than natural fibers. Some examples of synthetic fabrics are polyester, acrylic, nylon, rayon, acetate, spandex, latex and Kevlar. Synthetic fibers are made by the joining of monomers into polymers, by the process of polymerization. Likewise the marriage and children addendum to homosexual rights is man-made and less than natural.
The company has been a longtime fashion leader making high end perfumes, colognes, clothes and other accessories.
Homosexuals have defended their “right” to marry by pointing out that heterosexuals are the ones who have damaged marriage. That’s irrelevant because its not marriage that’s flawed, its the people who marry that are flawed. Thus, there is no reason to change the fundamental definition of what marriage is.
Dolce and Gabbana’s views support those of “Janna Darnelle” who wrote a blistering expose of homosexual men and their agenda to create an industry of female “breeders”.
“There is not one gay family that exists in this world that was created naturally. Every same-sex family can only exist by manipulating nature. Behind the happy façade of many families headed by same-sex couples, we see relationships that are built from brokenness. They represent covenants broken, love abandoned, and responsibilities crushed. They are built on betrayal, lies, and deep wounds,” she said.
The pair also exposed the real motivation behind gay marriage and adoption by shooting at another fashion issue: “The family is not a fad. In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging.” The pair was saying that homosexuals will become bored with marriage and children and toss them aside like a worn out pair of bell bottomed jeans. That’s because real marriage does have a supernatural origin. And that’s God.
The pair have since released a statement insisting their remarks were merely “personal views” and that they “did not judge other people’s decisions”.
“We firmly believe in democracy and the fundamental principle of freedom of expression that upholds it. We talked about our way of seeing reality, but it was never our intention to judge other people’s choices. We do believe in freedom and love,” Gabbana said.
Dolce added: “I’m Sicilian and I grew up in a traditional family, made up of a mother, a father and children. I am very well aware of the fact that there are other types of families and they are as legitimate as the one I’ve known. But in my personal experience, family had a different configuration. That is the place where I learnt the values of love and family.
“This is the reality in which I grew up, but it does not imply that I don’t understand different ones. I was talking about my personal view, without judging other people’s choices and decisions.”
Predictably and true to form homosexuals have viciously turned on the pair that they previously had highly celebrated. It just goes to show you that no one is safe from public execution should they dare oppose homofacism. The company is now under full blown assault from their homosexual brethrens for this breach of demanded solidarity. An international gay civil war of sorts has erupted with British celebrities firing on the Italians. Which prompted a strong return volley. Dolce and Gabbana called singer Elton John a “facist” in response to a called boycott of their company. [source]
Responding to the growing and urgent crisis of evangelical faith and its conflict with the homosexual rights movement, Dr. Jeff Farmer, chairman of the Pentecostal/Charismatic Churches of North America which represents some 480,000 churches with a combined total of 90 million adherents: “Right now, the church is ingrown and enculturated. It is consumer-driven and largely only interested in entertainment. Most Christians never share their faith with anybody. We desperately need a spiritual awakening and revival. It may very well be the only hope of our nation. And the whole same-sex marriage issue is just one indicator of several of a portent—of a harbinger of the coming storm.” [source]
Led by Pastor Dwight McKissic, Pastors group confronts Nashville Baptist school over lesbian bishop invitation
Without fail, everywhere gay christians show up, confusion, chaos and division ensues. Numerous local churches, denominations and independent fellowships have suffered irreparable damage trying to accomodate gay chrisians whose sole aim is to uproot historic Christian belief on homosexuality. The conflict is inevitable because gay christians are the new nicolatians. No real Christian who loves Jesus could also love the deeds and doctrines of the new nicolatians.
That’s why a prominent African American pastor with the Southern Baptist Convention has raised serious concerns about the American Baptist College‘s invitation to a lesbian “bishop” to speak at a yearly event. Pastor Dwight McKissic of Arlington, Texas pressed the issue on his blog calling the inclusion of Yvette Flunder and other Christian-oriented apostates a “horrible day to trample on the history of those who sacrificed to buy the land for ABC, and to validate the heretical teaching of Flunder and Townes, that the Bible does not address homosexual relationships.”
The school has plans to allow not only lesbian bishop Yvette Flunder access to students but also a gaggle of other anti-natural marriage religious leaders. Flunder is scheduled to appear at the school for the 2015 Garnett-Nabrit Lecture Series. Other speakers include prohomosexual clerics Delman Coates and Lawrence Kirby.
We’ve exposed Flunder’s false teachings and poisonous doctrine before. In case youre wondering why Pastor McKissic opposes Flunder access to the students, see here and here for the antithesis of Baptist teaching. Flunder stands to profit from this gig as well. Thats really why she wants to be on the program, she lusts after money while claiming to be concerned about “people being free”. As McKissic pointed out its treachery to allow her and the other false prophets to regurgitate their nasty venom on land Baptist slaves who opposed homosexuality, bought and paid for with blood, sweat and tears money.
Other African American pastors have launched public opposition to the appearance and vowed to protest as well.
As expected, a left wing homosexual rights group group quickly waded into the fray claiming that the opposition was a “small group” of “homophobic” detractors.
The ABC’s facebook page responded to criticism in early February, “The conference is about innovative ways of growing churches and ministries. Our speakers success in growing phenomenal ministries is the reason they were selected and not by their sexual orientation.”
“If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. John 15:18
Jesus’ admonishment about the hate of the world towards Christians (Christ followers) has just been pushed into real time by the Mississippi based American Family Association (AFA). With startling incidents of antiChristian hatred, bigotry and persecution on the rise, the AFA is now broadcasting to the American people just who is behind the venomous acts and words we keep hearing and seeing in the news. Or rather, we should note, the human faces of who is behind the hate. John 8:44 The new map shines the light on those whose hands are full of stones.
The AFA released a statement about the map which said:
“The American Family Association has identified groups and organizations that openly display bigotry toward the Christian faith. These groups are intolerant towards the Christian religion. Their objectives are to silence Christians and to remove public displays of Christian heritage and faith in America.
A common practice of these groups is threatening our nation’s schools, cities and states. By threat of lawsuit, they demand prayer removed from schools and city council meetings, Ten Commandments monuments stricken from courthouses and memorial crosses purged from cemeteries and parks. Because of anti-Christian bigotry, private business owners have been sued and forced to close their business. Families and businesses that express a Christian worldview on social issues often face vicious retaliation from bigoted anti-Christian zealots.
Some members or supporters of these groups have committed violent crimes against Christians and faith-based groups. Physical and profane verbal assaults against Christians are methods frequently exercised in their methods of intimidation.”
No real believer is surprised or even fearful about the certain hatred we face as believers who refuse to compromise the truth. It comes with the territory we occupy. But this anti-Christian hate map, though far from complete, shows just how pervasive and widespread groups are that foment hate against Christ followers. And just so we’re clear the reason for the hate is due to opposition of the twin golden death cows of the religious left: homosexuality and abortion. Add to that the anti-God humanists and atheists and you have a collection of poisoned groups who would love to see the demise or imprisonment of faithful believers.
The new map has been met with predictable scorn from religious liberals and their unreligious counterparts. It seems they thought they had cornered the market and owned the trademark on branding peaceful US Christian citizens and groups as “hatemongers”. Using superficial, self-serving criteria, the so called Southern Poverty Law Center even tried to brand brilliant and celebrated African American brain surgeon Dr. Ben Carson with its hate tagging.
According to one conservative website Among the over 200 anti-Christian organizations exposed by the Christian watchdog group are some of the most strident atheist, humanist and “LGBT” extremist outfits in America. The ironically named Human Rights Campaign (HRC), for example, is listed among them. The HRC’s co-founder is accused homosexual pedophile Terry Bean. He was arrested a few months ago for allegedly raping a 15-year-old boy.
