"Calgary Centre-North: Jim Prentice. A devout Presbyterian with an evangelical world view, Prentice, nevertheless, was one of four Conservative MPs who voted with the Liberals in favor of same-sex marriage. That despite his strong personal belief that marriage is between a man and a woman. Why that seeming contradiction? Prentice serves a riding that is reputed to have one of the highest percentages of gay-to-straight population ratios on the Canadian prairies -- perhaps a much as 15 per cent. Prentice easily won the riding, as had Joe Clark, in 2000, with considerable help from the gay community. But Prentice has more to offer. His work as aboriginal affairs critic and strong understanding of human rights nuances, will likely help him into a significant cabinet position." firstname.lastname@example.org
Calling Judas a Christian still now is really still absurd .. (Mat 7:18 KJV) A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
(Rom 1:22 KJV) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,...24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 26 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: 27 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 recompense of their error which was meet. 28 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;
(1 Tim 1:9 KJV) Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
(Heb 13:4 KJV) Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
(Rev 21:8 KJV) But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
(Mat 19:9 KJV) And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.(Mat 18:8 KJV) Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.
(Rev 3:19 KJV) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
"1 Corinthians 6:9 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.
(1) God defines homosexual offenders as among the WICKED
Ephesians 5:11, KJV And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
The Christian 's duty is to reprove, not to ignore, that which God calls wicked.
(2) God lists homosexual offenders among those who HE determines will not inherit the kingdom of God.
No TOLERANCE there. No bowing at the altar of DIVERSITY there.
No endorsement from heaven of homosexual churches there.
No platitudes about the LOVE of God embracing all lifestyles and behaviors.
Genesis 13:13 Now the men of Sodom were wicked and were SINNING GREATLY against the Lord.
Genesis 19:4-5, 11-13, 24 Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom — both young and old surrounded the house.  They called to Lot, Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have SEX WITH THEM. ...  Then [the messengers from God] struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and old, with blindness so that they could not find the door.  The two men said to Lot, Do you have anyone else here sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here,  because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the LORD against its people is so great that HE has sent us to DESTROY it. ...  Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah from the LORD out of the heavens.
(3) Homosexuality incurred God 's destructive judgment upon an entire city.
Rampant homosexuality was a major contributor to the decline and fall of the Roman Empire.
I think San Francisco has not yet been judged because of the God-fearing Christians living there among the sodomites.
(4) The men of Sodom were said to be “SINNING GREATLY because of their MEN having SEX with MEN.
Other sins of Sodom are listed in Scripture, but this is the one that the Bible features as their great sin the one that incurred God's wrath against their city.
Bible-believing Christians cannot just look the other way and say that gay marriage is simply a “personal choice.
Christians cannot fall for the modern mantra that it 's not our business what people choose to do behind closed doors.
God says that homosexual conduct is sinning greatly, and Jesus came to save us from our sins.
Jude 1:7 In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and PERVERSION. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.
(5) God labels Sodom 's sin as sexual PERVERSION.
Societies (again, ancient Rome) that remain in perversion are doomed Remember SODOM!
(6) God 's Word identifies husband-wife relations as NATURAL relations and HOMOsexual relations as UNNATURAL ones.
Again (27) God calls this PERVERSION that receives a DUE PENALTY.
(7) God's word also condemns APPROVING of those who practice [homosexuality].
That is why we need judges and legislators who will show their DISapproval of these things."
Taboo. The World wide sacred act of the ostriches too often is still to overlook, cover-up the wrong doings of politicians, and even clerics.. and their taboo in not breaking a supposed sacred trust, to hear and to speak no evil of others, but now we do know the price for having turned a blind eye to the politicians abuse and to the clerical abuse, even the paedophile priests. "INSTEAD of confining the paedophile clerics to positions where they would have no access to children, the authorities transferred the likes of Fr Brendan Smyth to unsuspecting communities where they were able to offend all over again. Hence each of them had the impact of seven or eight different paedophiles. The issue that I had raised, however, was about the behaviour of the authorities who covered up for the paedophile priests and facilitated their perverted ways, especially the Christian Brothers who transferred offending brothers to industrial schools where the children had virtually no protection. If those in authority did not know this was wrong, they should have had nothing to do with children. Of course, those authorities knew, but they were criminally indifferent." In the process they not only betrayed the children, but God.. and the bad politicians did the same who betrayed the citizens
(1 Tim 5:20 KJV) Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. 21 I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality. 22 Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins: keep thyself pure. continued
