Obama used his so called “faith” to couch his lie in a respectable cocoon.
“What I believe, in my faith, is that a man and a woman, when they get married, are performing something before God, and it’s not simply the two persons who are meeting.”
He repeated this declaration of faith in the 2008 campaign:
“I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. Now, for me as a Christian–for me–for me as a Christian, it is also a sacred union. God’s in the mix.”
Cardinal Francis George, head of the Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago, responding in the organization’s official newspaper to the State’s demand that citizens accept its gay marriage edicts or face social persecution
“What was once a request to live and let live has now become a demand for approval,” “The ‘ruling class,’ those who shape public opinion in politics, in education, in communications, in entertainment, is using the civil law to impose its own form of morality on everyone.
“We are told that, even in marriage itself, there is no difference between men and women, although nature and our very bodies clearly evidence that men and women are not interchangeable at will in forming a family. Nevertheless, those who do not conform to the official religion, we are warned, place their citizenship in danger.
“The inevitable result is a crisis of belief for many Catholics. Throughout history, when Catholics and other believers in revealed religion have been forced to choose between being taught by God or instructed by politicians, professors, editors of major newspapers and entertainers, many have opted to go along with the powers that be.
“This reduces a great tension in their lives, although it also brings with it the worship of a false god,” “It takes no moral courage to conform to government and social pressure. It takes a deep faith to ‘swim against the tide.’
Good news to report amidst the serial bad news that continues to gush from the office chambers of the apostate wing of American Christianity. Bishop David Maxwell a former vocal supporter of homosexual marriage and its rider issues, strongly denounced it and renounced his support of it in an May 19th oped.
Via the Gospel Herald:
One of Lansing, Michigan’s most prominent Black pastors, Bishop David Maxwell, had been quoted in the press in May of 2012, as saying that he agreed with homosexuals and lesbians who say that so called gay marriage is a “civil right”.
Maxwell, Pastor of Eliezer Temple Church in Lansing, Michigan, has also served as head of Mayor Virg Bernero’s Office of Faith-based Initiatives, was quoted as saying:
“Many of my comrades in the faith community have a struggle and cannot separate the theology with the civics of the president executing fairness and equity for all persons, It’s a civil right. The sad thing about it is: You would have thought that the African-American pastoral or theological community would have sensitivity when they themselves have struggled civil rights-wise.”
Maxwell also praised President Barack Obama for promoting an agenda to redefine marriage as other than between one man and one woman, “”I think the president is to be commended. He did not allow his own Christian philosophy or theology to dominate his presidential responsibility.” However, in a recent letter dated May 19, 2014, Bishop Maxwell has clearly changed his mind regarding his support of marriage redefinition and his criticism of predominantly Black churches as being “homophobic”.
“After reading statements attributed to me in a recent article, of which did not completely state my position on same sex marriage, and may lead some to view my statements as an endorsement of sort of same sex marriage. I am compelled to set the record straight”.
Maxwell also recanted all of his previous accusations against black churches for being “homophobic”.
During his illegal trial by the Sanhedrin Council, false witnesses were brought in to lie on Jesus. The Pharisees had no evidence to support what he was accused of, so false witnesses were needed to make the case against him stick. Well, it seems like some things never change because people are still lying on Jesus. The latest is gay singer Elton John who ignorantly claimed, sans evidence, that Jesus would have supported homosexual marriage.
The comments were widely reported by the world press.
Sir Elton John has said he believes that Jesus would be a supporter of gay marriage. The “Daniel” singer, who hopes to marry filmmaker David Furnish next year, said he thinks that the Christian figure would have supported the union of gay members of the clergy.
Speaking to Sky News on the same weekend as the London Pride parade, Sir Elton said: “If Jesus Christ was alive today, I cannot see him, as the Christian person that he was and the great person that he was, saying this could not happen.
“He was all about love and compassion and forgiveness and trying to bring people together. And that is what the Church should be about.”
But the chart-topping artist said that the Church deserved credit for the progress that has been made in recent years. He heaped particular praise onto the Archbishop of Canterbury and Pope Francis, whom he described as a “wonderful” man who had stripped back church teaching to reveal its fundamental message of love.
Of course Elton John has no theology degree, has not attended any seminary, does not cite any supporting scripture, is not a member of any Christian church, and doesn’t even profess to be a follower of Christ, but he blindly repeats debunked gay christian ideology. That defies all types of basic logic. So lets just with a few points, prove that Elton John lied on Jesus.
1. Jesus strongly and clearly affirmed the Old Testament position that the only legitimate relationship recognized by God was a biological male and a biological female in a covenant marriage relationship. He stated this to the exclusion of all other relationship pairings whether consensual or not. Mt 19
2. Jesus was God come in the flesh. He said that he came to earth specifically to do the will of God. He had no other agenda except to fulfill God’s will. John 10:30, 6:38
3. Jesus absolutely showed sinners love, compassion and forgiveness but thats only part of the story of Jesus. To paint Jesus as such is one dimensional heresay. Jesus said and did things the gay community considers hateful. (a) He said he did not come to bring peace but division Luke 12:51 (b) said that the world (unredeemed people like Elton John) hated him and would hate anyone who followed him. John 15:18 (c) said if you didnt accept everything he said, you were not his disciple Luke 9 (d) he physically beat people in the temple defiling it with greed John 2:15 (e) called false religious leaders snakes, fools, hypocrites and blind guides.
If the church was truly like Jesus, then it would not accept homosexual sin, but rather tell them that although the church does not condemn them, go and sin no more.
Finally, Jesus said nothing about homosexual weddings, never attended one, never had friends who attended one and never even insinuated that he would ever support homosexual marriages. So Elton John, please stop lying on Jesus.
Ralph Reed speaks an unpopular truth. The gay rights social cartels and their adamant supporters’ ears burn with anger when someone compares homosexuality to anything other than grandma’s homemade bread pudding. But the truth is very inconvenient. White slave owners hated it too when abolitionists talked about freeing the slaves so the comparisons are very appropriate, especially during so called “gay pride” month. GCMW has been a clear voice urging rejection of sexual slavery. Check out our posts here, here and here.
Seeking to encourage social conservative activists to persevere in the fight against same-sex marriage, Faith and Freedom Coalition founder Ralph Reed drew parallels between the ongoing debate over marriage equality and the nation’s long struggle over slavery and civil rights for African-Americans.
Speaking to about 40 attendees at an afternoon breakout session during the organization’s annual “Road to Majority” conference in Washington, D.C. on Friday, Reed gave a speech in which he suggested the 1857 Dred Scott Supreme Court decision —which ruled that African American slaves remained the property of their owners even if they traveled to or resided in free states — held a lesson for contemporary conservative activists concerned about what they see as judicial overreach on the issue of gay marriage.
Before the abolitionists triumphed, Reed reminded, it appeared for many years that the courts would squash the hopes of human rights reformers.
“The battle looked like it was lost, but it really wasn’t,” Reed said of the immediate aftermath of the Dred Scott decision, which went on to embolden abolitionist activists. “And that’s kind of like where we are right now. Anybody heard lately that we’re losing the marriage issue? Anybody heard that argument? You notice some similarities? I’m not comparing slavery to same-sex marriage, OK? I’m just pointing out that when you have these fights, what’s interesting is that if you look at same-sex marriage, it’s now legal in 17 states.”
Writing in Decision Magazine about the force-fed acceptance of homosexuality in America, Rev. Franklin Graham son of the world reknowned American Evangelist Billy Graham said:
“True followers of Jesus Christ, whose salvation is based entirely upon God’s Word, cannot endorse same-sex marriage, regardless of what our President, the Congress, the Supreme Court, the media or the latest Gallup poll says about the matter.
This moral issue has been settled by God Himself and is not subject to man-made revisions or modifications. In the end, I would rather be on the wrong side of public opinion than on the wrong side of Almighty God who established the standard of living for the world He created. Marriage is a biblically moral issue, not a political or theological one.”
