Prominent exgay target of gay hate
McCrimination: Donnie McClurkin says DC Mayor lied; violated ordinance specifically banning discrimination against Exgay Americans »
Becoming a mouthpiece for satan has an intended side effect. Its called a strong delusion. More and more we are seeing the church of babylon and its false prophets desperately throw themselves into fire for their master. The latest: the very reverend (and very false) Gary Hall, Dean of the Washington National Cathedral. The “national cathedral” is under Episcopalian witchcraft. What is it about these creepy looking old white men in dying liberal churches who fancy themselves as saviors of the ‘gay youth’ population? Using the now debunked Matthew Shepherd “hate crime” narrative as the basis of his delusional lie, Hall blamed churches across the country for influencing American beliefs about homosexuality. [I want to say that I am personally guilty of this charge and will continue openly influencing.]
We must now have the courage to take the final step and call homophobia and heterosexism what they are. They are sin. Homophobia is a sin. Heterosexism is a sin. Shaming people for whom they love is a sin,” Hall asserted. “Only when all our churches say that clearly and boldly and courageously will our LGBT youth be free to grow up in a culture that totally embraces them fully as they are.”
Hall continued on spouting off typical gay activist talking points about sexual expression but made sure to pull out of his bag of tricks the “gay is a gift” lie first floated by gay christian heretic Mel White. In an interview with reporters following the message, Hall said that he believes “sexual orientation is a gift, and the religious question should be about how they responsibly use that gift.”
Newsflash, Gary Hall: there is no ‘responsible way to sin’. All sin is encoded with deadly consequences no human can hope to escape except by repentance and faith in Christ. Your lifetime False Teachers Club of America card is in the mail.
And since when did sin become a gift from God? The bible teaches all good and perfect gifts come from God” (James 1:17). If sin is good, then Hall is a direct descendant of Jeffery Dahmer. The only “god” who would give sin as a gift is satan. Hall and false teachers of his ilk wont tell you that the wages of sin is death. Its all about a tragic blame game, with sexually confused children caught as pawns in their evil schemes.
But there are also false prophets among the people, even as there are false teachers among you who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who brought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 Pet 2:1
Contemporary preachers of today should take a lesson from the bold rebuke of the early church fathers. Gay christian heretic John Boswell wrote false accounts of the early church’s historical view of homosexuality and gender identity confusion but the words of many anchors of the faith reveal they uniformly condemned it in the strongest language possible. 100% of scriptures that mention homosexual behavior and gender confusion condemn it 100% of the time. Anyone who attempts to alter this truth in any way are operating under demonic influence.
Though somewhat controversial, The Didache, yet reflects the prevailing condemnation of homosexuality within the Christian context:
“You shall not commit murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not commit pederasty, you shall not commit fornication, you shall not steal, you shall not practice magic, you shall not practice witchcraft, you shall not murder a child by abortion nor kill one that has been born” (Didache 2:2 [A.D. 70]).
151 AD Justin Martyr “We have been taught that to expose newly-born children is the part of wicked men; and this we have been taught lest we should do anyone harm and lest we should sin against God, first, because we see that almost all so exposed (not only the girls, but also the males) are brought up to prostitution. And for this pollution a multitude of females and hermaphrodites, and those who commit unmentionable iniquities, are found in every nation. And you receive the hire of these, and duty and taxes from them, whom you ought to exterminate from your realm. And any one who uses such persons, besides the godless and infamous and impure intercourse, may possibly be having intercourse with his own child, or relative, or brother. And there are some who prostitute even their own children and wives, and some are openly mutilated for the purpose of sodomy; and they refer these mysteries to the mother of the gods” (First Apology 27).
181 AD Theophilus of Antioch “Give studious attention to the prophetic writings [the Bible] and they will lead you on a clearer path to escape the eternal punishments and to obtain the eternal good things of God.. [God] will examine everything and will judge justly, granting recompense to each according to merit. To those who seek immortality by the patient exercise of good works, he will give everlasting life, joy, peace, rest, and all good things.. For the unbelievers and for the contemptuous, and for those who do not submit to the truth but assent to iniquity, when they have been involved in adulteries, and fornications, and homosexualities, and avarice, and in lawless idolatries, there will be wrath and indignation, tribulation and anguish; and in the end, such men as these will be detained in everlasting fire” (To Autolycus 1:14).
190 AD Clement of Alexandria “All honor to that king of the Scythians, whoever Anacharsis was, who shot with an arrow one of his subjects who imitated among the Scythians the mystery of the mother of the gods . . . condemning him as having become effeminate among the Greeks, and a teacher of the disease of effeminacy to the rest of the Scythians
” … [According to Greek myth] Baubo [a female native of Elusis] having received [the goddess] Demeter hospitably, reached to her a refreshing draught; and on her refusing it, not having any inclination to drink (for she was very sad), and Baubo having become annoyed, thinking herself slighted, uncovered her shame, and exhibited her nudity to the goddess. Demeter is delighted with the sight–pleased, I repeat, at the spectacle. These are the secret mysteries of the Athenians; these Orpheus records” … “It is not, then, without reason that the poets call him [Hercules] a cruel wretch and a nefarious scoundrel. It were tedious to recount his adulteries of all sorts, and debauching of boys. For your gods did not even abstain from boys, one having loved Hylas, another Hyacinthus, another Pelops, another Chrysippus, another Ganymede. Let such gods as these be worshipped by your wives, and let them pray that their husbands be such as these–so temperate; that, emulating them in the same practices, they may be like the gods. Such gods let your boys be trained to worship, that they may grow up to be men with the accursed likeness of fornication on them received from the gods” (Exhortation to the Greeks 2).ad
250 AD Novatian “[God forbid the Jews to eat certain foods for symbolic reasons:] For that in fishes the roughness of scales is regarded as constituting their cleanness; rough, and rugged, and unpolished, and substantial, and grave manners are approved in men; while those that are without scales are unclean, because trifling, and fickle, and faithless, and effeminate manners are disapproved. Moreover, what does the Law mean when it . . . forbids the swine to be taken for food? It assuredly reproves a life filthy and dirty, and delighting in the garbage of vice . . . Or when it forbids the hare? It rebukes men deformed into women” (The Jewish Foods 3).
253 AD Cyprian of Carthage “[T]urn your looks to the abominations, not less to be deplored, of another kind of spectacle . . . Men are emasculated, and all the pride and vigor of their sex is effeminated in the disgrace of their enervated body; and he is more pleasing there who has most completely broken down the man into the woman. He grows into praise by virtue of his crime; and the more he is degraded, the more skillful he is considered to be. Such a one is looked upon–oh shame!–and looked upon with pleasure. . . . nor is there wanting authority for the enticing abomination . . . that Jupiter of theirs [is] not more supreme in dominion than in vice, inflamed with earthly love in the midst of his own thunders . . . now breaking forth by the help of birds to violate the purity of boys. And now put the question: Can he who looks upon such things be healthy-minded or modest? Men imitate the gods whom they adore, and to such miserable beings their crimes become their religion” (Letters 1:8).

Gays trying to manipulate Pennsylvania into marriage perversion are in a tizzy at Governor Tom Corbett because he compared gay marriage to marriage of siblings. Predictable faux outrage followed.
Pennsylvania Republican Gov. Tom Corbett compared the marriage of same-sex couples to the marriage of a brother and sister during an appearance on a Friday morning TV news show, a remark that was quickly condemned by advocates involved in the state’s ongoing battle over whether to allow gays to wed.
Religious homosexuals and the blind allies argue that Jesus said nothing about homosexuality, thus they conclude that homosexuality isn’t a sin. But Jesus said nothing about pedophilia or incest either. So if the conclusion is that silence equals consent, why are they bent out of shape about the comparison? According to their logic its an accurate comparison.
The truth is that in God’s eyes, all sexual sin is sin. Homosexuality, pedophilia and incest all degrade and distort the humanity of other people. The hypocrisy and illogical arrogance of the gay rights movement is proof that they have no business trying to force this country to follow their broken perspectives.
Via the Christian Post:
WASHINGTON – Following the June closing of Exodus International, other groups working with persons struggling with unwanted same-sex attraction are taking up the ex-gay banner, including Voice of the Voiceless, which hosted Monday the First Annual Ex-Gay Awareness Dinner and Reception that attracted about 60 Christian leaders and ex-gay individuals.
“When gays come out of the closet they are celebrated in the movies and on TV, when an ex-gay tells his story, he’s mocked, ridiculed, defamed – and ask Trace McNutt, he gets death threats,” Christopher Doyle, co-founder and president of ex-gay group Voice of the Voiceless, explained. He called for the movement to go on the offensive with the message that people can determine their sexual identity.
Doyle emphasized youth outreach, especially to Christians who suffer from same-sex attraction (SSA) but want to still maintain their faith. “Somewhere along the journey, they listened to the lie that they had to rid themselves of all homosexual feelings in order to be loved by their church, their community, and an opposite sex partner, so they gave up and went into the gay lifestyle,” the VoV president explained.
“To have left homosexuality is a notable miracle,” declared Greg Quinlan, an ex-gay and president of Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays. “I have seen the change, I have to speak of these things. It is my obligation to do that!” Citing Acts, Quinlan proclaimed his duty to preach the good news, “I will continue to declare that ex-gay is ok, you can change!”
In a particularly passionate speech, Bishop Harry Jackson, Jr., senior pastor of Hope Christian Church in Beltsville, Md. and chairman of the High Impact Leadership Coalition, shared his miraculous story of surviving esophageal cancer and rededicating himself to God. “Lord, I stand in weakness, but you stand in power,” Jackson, who is also known for fighting against same-sex marriage bills in Washington, D.C. and Maryland, prayed.
The pastor encouraged the ex-gays to declare passionately, “I’m going to live as a transformed ex-gay and I don’t care who doesn’t like it!”
So this is what equal rights looks like?
In Belgium, the London Mail reports that a transsexual has chosen to die by euthanasia after a botched sex change operation to complete his transformation into a man left him a ‘monster’.
Nathan (born Nancy) Verhelst, 44, died yesterday afternoon after being allowed have his life ended on the grounds of ‘unbearable psychological suffering’.
It is understood to be the first time someone in Belgium has chosen euthanasia after a sex-change, and comes soon after it emerged that it is now the cause of nearly one in 50 deaths in the country. [source]
It makes you wonder why it hasn’t gotten any US press attention. The lead angle of the story was the bizarre suicide by euthanasia of a woman who got an operation to look like a man and in her own words ended up looking “like a monster”. So distraught at the irreversible damage done to herself, she committed suicide.
Its tragic that individuals are tortured internally with unending psychological pain, but then to get it “fixed” only to fall into a worse state is proof that “transgenderism” is a serious mental dysfunction. This is what messages like this ultimately lead to particularly for unsuspecting gender confused teens.
Suicide rates among transsexuals and those who have undergone gender reassignment surgery are high with some suggesting the rate may be as high as 31 per cent.
Chris Hyde, professor at the University of Exeter, who has studied the issues surrounding sex change operations, told Mail Online: ‘Research we conducted a decade ago found there is huge uncertainty over whether changing someone’s sex is a good or a bad thing.
While no doubt great care is taken to ensure that appropriate patients undergo gender reassignment, there’s still a large number of people who have the surgery but remain traumatised – often to the point of committing suicide.
‘While we haven’t looked at the situation since then, given the difficulties in researching this area, it is likely that the same issues remain today.’
In the hours before his death Verhelst told Belgium’s Het Laatse Nieuws: ‘I was ready to celebrate my new birth. But when I looked in the mirror, I was disgusted with myself.
Russell D. Moore, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention got it right when he said that “transgendered” individuals confusion risk serious consequences for rejecting God’s original gift to them.
The transgender question means that conservative Christian congregations such as mine must teach what’s been handed down to us, that our maleness and femaleness points us to an even deeper reality, to the unity and complementarity of Christ and the church. A rejection of the goodness of those creational realities then is a revolt against God’s lordship, and against the picture of the gospel that God had embedded in the creation.
But this also means that we will love and be patient with those who feel alienated from their created identities.We must recognize that some in our churches will face a long road of learning what it means to live as God created them to be, as male or female. That sort of long, slow, plodding and sometimes painful obedience is part of what Jesus said would be true of every believer: the bearing of a cross. That cross-bearing reminds us that God doesn’t receive us because of our own effort but because God reconciled us to himself through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.
Our transgendered neighbors will disagree with us, of course, that discipleship means an acceptance of who we are as men and women, and that our selves are not separate from our bodies. We should expect such disagreements. But we believe we can no more surgically alter our gospel than we can surgically alter our gender.
The only thing homosexual activists offer are “rights”, but rights will never correct the effects of sin. Nancy Verhelst is tragic proof of that. Redemption from the vile effects of sin is the only real answer. The cross is glorious proof of that.
