Painting Homosexuals as “Victims” Is a Ploy to Silence Christians

So-called “hate crimes” protections for immoral “sexual orientation” and so-called “gender identities” like those signed into law by President Obama in 2009 are part of a 20 year-old plan designed to normalize all kinds of sexual immorality.

A book written by two homosexual activists in 1989 called After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90′s is considered by many to be the “gay manifesto” for normalizing same-sex perversion in America. Authors Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen set forth this 383-page plan to legitimize homosexuality by portraying “gays as victims” and “gay victimizers as bad.”

The strategy of “gay” martyrdom has paid huge dividends for homosexual activists since 1989. In recent years, homosexual activists have overturned laws against sodomy nationally, legalized so-called “gay marriage” in some states and even gained local school bans on criticism of homosexuality under the guise of preventing “bullying.” Yet, their ultimate objective is to silence everyone who will not yield to their celebration of perversion by joining with them to reject Biblical righteousness, especially in the area of sexual purity. For proof of this objective, read Kirk and Madsen’s clear statement on page 176 of After the Ball:

[There are people] who feel compelled to adhere rigidly to an authoritarian belief structure (e.g., an orthodox religion), that condemns homosexuality. Our primary objective regarding die-hard homohaters of this sort is to cow and silence (emphasized by the authors) them as far as possible, not to convert or even desensitize them. (After the Ball, p. 176)

Faithful Christians will be clearly marked for the kind of persecution prescribed by Kirk and Masden. After all, the Bible plainly condemns sexual perversions, including homosexuality, and compels Christ’s followers to call sinners to repentence.

While homosexual activists like to claim the Bible does not address homosexuality in the New Testament, nothing could be farther from the truth. Consider the Apostle Paul’s treatment of homosexuality in the first chapter of the book of Romans:

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man””and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (NKJV)

Nothing epitomizes the modern “gay agenda” like painting homosexuals as “victims” at the hands of Bible-believing Christians. This agenda is obviously NOT the innocuous, feel-good, “equal rights” movement portrayed in the media. For homosexual activists, the pretense of tolerance is merely a step in the path to silencing Christians on matters of morality. Forced legitimization is their true objective. True Christians who therefore oppose the demands to legitimize immorality are destined to incur the wrath of homosexuals who demand their “rights.”
