It is written, “Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”
Sexual deviancy has consequences no matter the type of behavior and irrespective of the lifestyle. Sexual deviancy will not be tolerated by God irrespective to what some forward-thinking churches are endorsing. Therefore, the judgment seat of God will hold ALL accountable for their actions irrespective of the endorsements of ACLU, liberal judges, and politicians alike. This is not an issue of tolerance and progressive thinking but one of morality in the eyes of an Almighty God.
In God’s eyes, there are no alternative lifestyles that are acceptable to Him. There is no marriage other than that between a man and woman. If you have embraced a position that Alternative Lifestyles is an acceptable norm within our society, then you have taken a position against God.
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
Is there any wonder why our country has lost so much of the blessings it once basked in with true gayety? Today we are living in a day where homosexuality, pornography, and other forms of sexual deviancy are now embraced in the name of “Alternative Lifestyles” and tolerance. And as if to add insult to injury, any moral objections to these lifestyles are jeered through the media and political circles as homophobes and bigotry, while they herald sexual promiscuity.
Case in point: What is wrong with this country when a homosexual adulterous affair by a Governor (former New Jersey Governor James McGreevy) is cheered nationally within the political and media circles as a “coming out of the closet celebration?”
And in today's news, August 7th: San Diego firefighters file a legal complaint of sexual harassment for being Forced to attend a Gay Pride Parade against their will, while be subjected to lewd acts, obscene gestures, and inappropriate comments.

Is this what we have become as a nation in the name of “alternative lifestyle acceptance” as if sin has some moral equivalency? National policy that attempts to redefine deviant behavior as a societal norm, hence calling it “good” may appear to be unobtrusive, politically correct, tolerant, not affecting you or your family, benign or even beneficial from a rationalization standpoint. Yet, the consequences are ultimately affecting us as a nation, not just those carrying out the behaviors. Look at what is being taught in our schools today under the guise of sexual education and after school programs! Consider the plight of our citizens in Massachusetts, whose children are being taught that deviant behavior is acceptable and to explore one’s sexuality – in many cases against the will of their parents.
Committing and condoning any acts of sexual deviancy only further alienates this nation from God’s blessings, which includes His hand of protection. How far will we let this nation sink just to please the finger pointers who call those of moral integrity names? Are we no stronger than a child on a playground who cannot deal with the bully? Consider this.
When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily.
"I know here that you will agree with me that standing up for America also means standing up for the God who has so blessed our land. I believe this country hungers for a spiritual revival. I believe it longs to see traditional values reflected in public policy again. To those who cite the First Amendment as reason for excluding God from more and more of our institutions and everyday life, may I just say: The First Amendment of the Constitution was not written to protect the people of this country from religious values; it was written to protect religious values from government tyranny."
-President Ronald Reagan
It is time to stand up and make a difference for our country, its citizens, and our future.
Restoring FAITH in America
