This is not about equal rights. Gays are already indistinguishable. So what is it? They're the shock troops of international, global Communism, the Red Menace, set out to destroy Western Civilization . . . they are Anti-God, Anti-Country and Anti-Family, with big government in control of everything (health care with affirmative action) . . . everyone is equal, even if you don't work for it . . . sounds good, but without competition, human nature tends to move toward fraud, corruption, and despotism, just look at it in government now . . . Hey hey!, Ho ho! Western Civ has got to go - Hey hey! Ho ho ho!

Gen 1:26-27 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, . . . " So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
. . . "our image / our likeness" refers to the Trinity - Father, Son, Holy Spirit - and the image of God is both male and female
. . . Nowhere in the Bible does God bless the union of two men, or two women living together
. . . It doesn't say anywhere in the Bible that woman is not in the image of God
. . . Related: Mt 13:13-15 Jesus spoke in parables
Gen 2:18-24 The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field. But for Adam no suitable helper was found. So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman,' for she was taken out of man." For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
. . . This is marriage, 1 man and 1 woman in a holy, monogamous relationship where the 2 become 1 flesh, worshiping and glorifying God . . .
Man is made in the image and likeness of God. Marriage is intended by God to be an image of the Trinity. It is the union of three persons, not two. Man and woman are one with each other and one with the person of Jesus Christ.
Marriage is like the Trinity
In the temporal world, though, there is a chain of command, so it's a little different. The man is the head of the woman, Christ is the head of the man.
With God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are co-equal.
Eph 5:22-25 "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so [let] the wives [be] to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;"
Man being the "head" of the woman is not meant as being oppressive. The Greek word used there for "head" is kephalē, or cephale. Paul is using a military term - an innovation in battle was that instead of charging at the enemy in a line, they would form a V to pierce the line of the enemy. There was one man at the tip of that V, the "head," or cephale. The implication from this metaphor is that the woman is behind the man in battle, and she has to be in lock step with him, otherwise they're dead. Likewise, the man has to be in lock step behind Christ as the head.
Christ as the "head" of the man in battle is not specified in these verses:
Ephesians 6:10-18 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
. . . I think it makes you think like you're primarily all on your own - but from Ephesians 5:22-25 above, we know differently.
Ephesians 5 and 2 Corinthians are talking about Christ being the Bridegroom and the church being His bride.

In Christian Marriage:
Christ is the head of the Man. Man is the head of the woman.
In a Christian home, Christ is the head of the home, and is the head of the man. The husband is the head of the woman, and has authority over the woman, and children. His role is to keep the family together.
Marriage is meant to be a picture of the Trinity - It creates the family - and there is a battle on against it, from the devil.
Abuse of the authority structure by men gives the Illuminati traction to exploit it, by calling it an oppressive, primitive system . . . Even if it looks like that, though, you can't just throw out the whole system, because God has said to do it.
The Devil seeks role reversal in everything. This is why you see women today usurping the authority of the man. This is how Satan rebels against God, by destroying things.
. . . God did not say man alone, homo, or lesbian . . . this is why homosexuality is so important to the devil - because Satan wants to destroy or corrupt what God has said to do.
We are not to make that judgement about the spirit of people, but we are to judge the natural, and that's what we're doing when saying this.
Why is the sin of homosexuality worse than the sin of murder? . . . If you kill a man (murder) vs. If you reject the Holy Spirit (homosexuality)
Murder is tragic, of course, but forgivable.
Homosexuality is not like other sins, though - God calls it an abomination. Reason: It's along the same lines as blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, the one, unforgiveable sin. It's not in His plan. It is foreign, sin rebellion. The image of God is male and female - that's why you can make a case that homosexuality is worse than murder.
Also - the overriding theme of the Bible is to always choose life, or things that promote life. If when you say to "murder," that means one person, compare that to say if you take school rooms of children across the country, and teach them that homosexuality is ok. Suppose those kids are encouraged to experiment with it, they get corrupted into it, and choose that sexual behavior for life - the won't have any kids, because two guys or two girls can't have a baby - so essentially, you have murdered them. And through this teaching that it's ok, probably more than one will be "murdered" - more life is lost than through a regular murder, so that's why homosexuality is worse than murder, just take a look at the numbers.
Jesus told the pharisees, who attributed his miracles to using the power of Satan, to be unforgivable:
Mark 3:20 - 30 Then Jesus entered a house, and again a crowd gathered, so that he and his disciples were not even able to eat. When his family heard about this, they went to take charge of him, for they said, "He is out of his mind." And the teachers of the law who came down from Jerusalem said, "He is possessed by Beelzebub! By the prince of demons he is driving out demons." So Jesus called them and spoke to them in parables: "How can Satan drive out Satan? If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan opposes himself and is divided, he cannot stand; his end has come. In fact, no one can enter a strong man's house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man. Then he can rob his house. I tell you the truth, all the sins and blasphemies of men will be forgiven them. But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; he is guilty of an eternal sin." He said this because they were saying, "He has an evil spirit."
Those speaking against the son of man can be forgiven, but those speaking against the Spirit are not:
Matthew 12:30-32 "He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters. Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. And whoever says a word against the Son of man will be forgiven; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come."

Let’s look at what this marriage analogy means on every level. Each of us - male and female - are created with a trinity of our own - like our Creator. Our trinity consists of three levels: body, mind, and spirit. Our relationship to Christ informs each level, making us not only more like Him, but more like the spouse we were created to be.
Counter argument: Homosexuals have a chance as long as they still have breath. There is no hard rule in the Bible.
When we can't figure out how to deal with someone, just flip to:
1 Co 13 . . . http://www.blueletterbible.org/Bible.cfm?b=1Cr&c=13&t=NIV#1
"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
. . . you don't have to like something to love the person . . . love the sinner, hate the sin
It is said that all sin is equal in the eyes of God . . . but is it?
No. The one unforgivable sin is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. This can take two forms, that I can think of:
1.) Verbal rejection of the Holy Spirit (ie. cursing God, rejecting Him)
2.) Physical rejection of the Holy Spirit - through Homosexuality
Judaism's Sexual Revolution: Why Judaism (and then Christianity) Rejected Homosexuality . . . http://www.orthodoxytoday.org/articles2/PragerHomosexuality.php
In the article "Judaism's Sexual Revolution," it argues that use of the word "abomination" to describe homosexuality is the highest form of condemnation, and that makes it a different sin:
Lev 18:22 (KJV)
"Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination."
Lev 20:13 (KJV)
"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them."
Counter argument . . . but the Bible uses this word to describe other sins too:
Proverbs 6:16-19 (KJV) "These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren."
. . . In the Blue Letter Bible, click on C for Concordance . . . you will see that the Hebrew word for "abomination" is: tow`ebah
. . . check out all occurrences of this word, and how it's used . . . "abomination" occurs 76 times in 69 verses in the KJV
So, according to this article, anyone that has self-pride, lied, shed innocent blood, devises wicked plans (millions of these), runs to evil, lies (again), or sows discord has committed an unforgivable sin.
Have you ever done any of these? What other abominations are you guilty of? According to this logic, you can't be forgiven.
Counter argument . . . Only Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is the one, unforgivable sin. These sins can be forgiven through repentance: self-pride, lies, shed innocent blood, devise wicked plans, run to evil, sows discord
As Professor Greenberg, who betrays no inclination toward religious belief writes, "When the word toevah ("abomination") does appear in the Hebrew Bible, it is sometimes applied to idolatry, cult prostitution, magic, or divination, and is sometimes used more generally. It always conveys great repugnance" (emphasis added). Moreover, the Bible lists homosexuality together with child sacrifice among the "abominations" practiced by the peoples living in the land about to be conquered by the Jews. The two are certainly not morally equatable, but they both characterized a morally primitive world that Judaism set out to destroy.
The overriding principle of the Bible, and reason behind each commandment, is that you always choose for life, or that which leads to life . . . for example, don't murder, homosexuality is wrong (it doesn't lead to new life), so is suicide, euthanasia, abortion . . .
Dt 30:15-20 . . . See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess. This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
So, it's not politically correct to speak against homosexuality, and we can't do anything about it. What does the Bible say about how to deal with this? It seems like there should be some godly way to be psychologically disconnected from it.
How should we be in the world but not of it?
Ro 12:1-3 . . . Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will. For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.
We belong to Jesus:
Gal 5:16-26 . . . So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law. The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.
We are the temple of the Holy Spirit:
1 Co 6:15-20 . . . Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh." But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit. Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
Jesus will never leave us or forsake us:
Heb 13:5-6 . . . Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?"
We rejoice in our sufferings:
Ro 5:1-11 . . . Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him! For if, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
Every knee should bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord
Php 2:8-16 . . . And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death--even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed--not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence--continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life--in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools
Ro 1:22-32 . . . Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature
more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Leave the judging to God
Ro 12:17-21 . . . Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord. On the contrary: "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head." Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Conclusion: Don't judge, leave that to God, but we are called to warn them. Love the sinner, hate the sin. A good way is to share a gospel tract . . .

The Gay Manifesto - Misrepresented by Religious Political Activists to Create a Lie . . . http://www.ralliance.org/GayAgendaSwiftText.html
First Published in Gay Community News, Feb. 15-21, 1987
(From the Congressional Record, with preface restored [restored preface in blue])
This essay is an outré, madness, a tragic, cruel fantasy, an eruption of inner rage, on how the oppressed desperately dream of being the oppressor.
We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all male clubs, in your houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together. Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us.
Women, you cry for freedom. You say you are no longer satisfied with men; they make you unhappy. We, connoisseurs of the masculine face, the masculine physique, shall take your men from you then. We will amuse them; we will instruct them; we will embrace them when they weep. Women, you say you wish to live with each other instead of with men. Then go and be with each other. We shall give your men pleasures they have never known because we are foremost men too, and only one man knows how to truly please another man; only one man can understand the depth and feeling, the mind and body of another man.

I see it as an example of how Postmodernism works to keep one from getting a grip on what Truth is. It confuses you, and keeps you there. Is it the work of the devil? I say, yes. This would be in contrast to God's Word, which makes things black and white.
I like comedy, but the eternal destiny of people's souls is at stake. I think we have to look at this as a tactic of the devil to soften our look at this sin, distract from Jesus, and capture people's minds through indifference.
Somewhere I heard that it's illegal to do comedy or tell jokes in China - per their Communist regime. I have intended to look into this . . . Imagine if comedy were illegal in the United States. How would this change our mindset?
