What are the chances that the whole human race, for untold thousands of years, has been totally wrong about a basic moral question, and that a gaggle of activists and academics, just within the last 25 years or so, has finally gotten it right?
Well, they think they’ve got it right, and they demand that we all jettison our core beliefs and hop on board their bandwagon—and heaven help us if we don’t.
What will we even call this brand-new ideology, pushed on us with such lunatic zeal by its adherents and the organs of government which they control? It has already gone far beyond the mere tolerance or even the promotion of homosexuality, and now insists that every possible aberration of sexuality that depraved minds can think of be “celebrated” by one and all—or else. This bizarre vision of life is so new, they haven’t even got a name for it.
No matter. While they’re trying to come up with a catchy name, the rest of us are expected to surrender. We are being herded into a kind of dhimmitude—that multiculturally wonderful Muslim law making non-Muslims officially second-class citizens. In any state or city where the government has set up any kind of “human rights” agency, any Christian may, at any time, be compelled to participate in the abomination of a same-sex “wedding.” He will be required to lend to it his skills and time and effort as a photographer, baker, florist, caterer, whatever, or allow it to be performed on his property—or rather, what he thought was his property. If he resists, or balks, the “human rights” agency will not only punish him with grievous fines against him and his small business, but will also exercise ownership over his conscience and his mind, sentencing him to “sensitivity training” or “anti-discrimination class” until his mind is right and he sees the light.
What could be more grotesque than someone choosing to have various body-parts cut off, and his or her whole physiology shot up with hormones, so he can claim to belong to the opposite sex? This is “transgender,” or “gender choice,” facilitated by “gender reassignment surgery” to correct the “error” of one’s having been born a man or a woman. At no time in human history, until our own satanic age, has this been deemed acceptable. Now we’re all supposed to “celebrate” and “respect” it, if we know what’s good for us. And when “species reassignment surgery” comes along, we’ll be required to accept that, too.
But I don’t accept it.
I will not change. I will not reject the word of God as given in the Bible. I will not abandon thousands of years of moral consensus and adopt a wicked ideology that wasn’t even here when I was born. I will not go against the Lord who made the heavens and the earth, and the Son of God who is my sole salvation, to win the favor of lost souls and their sponsors in Hollywood and Washington.
God is eternal.
Don’t ask me to explain why our culture is so rapidly disintegrating. I can’t explain why the ruling classes of the Western world are so hot to trot with this. I can’t even point you to the Exit sign—unless it’s that sign over there that says “Holy Bible.”
But I will not change. I will not bow down to this new idol. I will not say the Bible is wrong and a set of demon-inspired wackos is right.
For this nameless delusion is just the latest in a perpetual series of Godless utopians that Satan has been using to tempt the children of Adam and Eve, ever since he scammed their first parents in the Garden. It looks new—the state using its resources to teach very young children in government schools, “You can be a boy one day and a girl the next, depending on how you feel,” yeah, that looks new—but it’s the name old snake oil that the Devil has been selling since Genesis 3: ye shall be as gods, deciding good and evil for yourselves.
Meanwhile, every passing day brings closer Christ’s return.
And then we’ll see who’s right.
