Homosexuality - from a Christian Perspective. There is help available...

Advocates of same-sex marriage seek to change the definition of marriage, they are trying to force us or “impose on us” to accept their beliefs, their choice, or their “way of life” and their redefinition of marriage to what they want it to be. If these propositions do not pass – the gays and lesbians and same-sex marriage advocates will be "imposing" on us to change our churches, to change what is being taught in our schools to our children, and to change our way life… to conform to the lifestyle they have ‘chosen’ to live.

Advocates may argue that homosexuals have not "chosen" this. They are comparing it with the disabilities acts and the civil rights movement. Being gay isn't a disability or an ethnicity. Even if one is born with these tendencies, it still is a choice one makes to live the lifestyle. There are many organizations like Portland Fellowship (see: whose belief is that there is freedom from homosexuality and it comes through a person... the Lord Jesus Christ. Their programs were inspired by men and women who have experienced freedom from homosexual desire and behavior through the love and mercy of Jesus Christ. Their ministry has helped hundreds of men and women find biblical resolution to their homosexuality and has ministered to their families, friends, and church leaders. Homosexual advocacy groups would have you believe there is no way to change so just accept it and change God's word.

We are all have weakness. We choose to act on them. If someone chooses to act on a weakness and go against God's word, we can't change the fundamental truths in order to conform or fit their lifestyle.

Some may claim if my son were gay - I would feel differently. Fundamental truths do not change. If my son were gay, I would feel the same. I would still love my son, but I couldn't change truth. We can't change God's word to suit our purposes. We can love the person, not the sin.

Advocates for same-sex marriage wish to breaking through religious barriers and promote this lifestyle. In supporting this amendment I am not advocating hate for those who choose to stay in and live this lifestyle – I recognize that it is a natural tendency. I don’t understand the struggles they go through. I’m not judging them or discriminate against them, or telling them they have to do what I think is right. I just want the values of traditional marriage to be upheld not changed. God tells us to love all but to stand for the truth and be strong in the faith even if it isn't the popular thing to do.

"Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. Let all your things be done with charity." 1 Corinthinians 16: 13-14

There are others not just Christian who know there is a way to change. Advocates would have you believe there isn't a way, but it is just not true. It is a choice. Watch the videos to find out more info.

Interesting blog. I recently saw a rather thought-provoking article on Google entitled "Obama Supports Public Depravity." I also spotted a couple fascinating articles on Yahoo. They are "God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up" and "Dangerous Radicals of the Religious Right." Lord bless.
