My wife was a music major in college and met many homosexual men (yes, they are disproportionally represented in the arts). She said that whenever she got to know them well, they’d eventually admit they had been molested by men when they were children. One of them went so far as to say that he seduced his molester at the age of four. Now, nobody seduces anyone at the age of four. Unfortunately, this is how this young man chose to cope with his abuse. Homosexual child molestation is the dirty little secret that the gay community doesn’t want to talk about.

“I get to be free today,” Herndon said. “I’m born again today, and I feel like I’m not gonna have any trouble sleeping tonight.”
Scripture says they are anything but free:
Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin.
2 Peter 2:19
They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity–for “people are slaves to whatever has mastered them.”
Why should anyone believe in those "scriptures"?

Typical liberal, progressive arrogance. The ends justify the means. So, if we had to lie to you to get this passed, it was for your own good. So now you should thank us, even though you lost the plan you liked, lost the doctor you liked, have a higher deductible, have higher out of pocket expenses and pay more for your coverage. In other words, we screwed you, but there are 7 million happy because we’re giving them a free ride and now they will vote for us forever. Democrats and the truth are as far apart as the east is from the west.
I'm sorry you lost your plan and your doctor. RIGHT? that's what happened to YOU and not what YOU BELIEVE... right? It has happened to you?
I can't stand double talking idiots like this worm. And the lies just keep coming...can't wait for the trolls to chime in on this...Is he going for an Emmy?
I saw this interview. This guy is an intellectually dishonest, ignorant, arrogant liberal poster child for TERM LIMITS!

You got it. If you don’t love ObamaCare, that supposedly means that you want people to get cancer and die. Their basic assumption is that if you don’t want a government solution to every problem, then you don’t care about the problem. It never occurs to them that there may be less intrusive, less onerous, less expensive solutions to problems that don’t require a government mandated, Marxist solution.

I don’t know why I see this constant battle of faith vs. works. Both are important and Scripture is clear on both counts. Salvation/justification comes through faith alone. Works do matter, not because they earn salvation, but because they are a reflection of a genuine saving faith. If TheBlaze allows links to another website, here’s a great link that provides supporting biblical citations: http://carm.org/verses-showing-justification-by-faith. May the Lord bless all who seek the truth in His Word.

Apparently, you missed the memo. Vulgar derogatory words are always acceptable when applying them to conservatives or anyone who disagrees with a liberal position. By expressing any idea that is not accepted liberal PC orthodoxy, the speaker has publicly exposed themselves as being either subhuman or a troglodyte. As such, any verbal abuse directed toward said subhuman/troglodyte and or any violence directed at the subhuman/troglodyte is considered worthy of the Presidential Medal of Honor. This decree was, of course made via Presidential Executive Order by his highness.

Very funny, Monk. I’m sure he’s had his black card revoked by the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus and others like them. You know, once someone like Ben leaves the liberal ideological plantation they’re told they’re not black anymore. That must come as quite a shock to him every time he looks in the mirror. Don’t forget the other nice things that the “tolerant” left calls black conservatives, i.e. Uncle Tom, Oreo etc.

“But scientists are working on it. There’s a lot that we do know that’s related to that question, but the big one — how we went from non-life to life in the Universe — is still an open one. I hope I live long enough to be there when we figure this puzzle out; don’t you?”
Embedded in his response is the assumption that one day science will figure it out. He has no scientific basis for his assumption. Science can prove what it can prove and nothing more. It cannot, with scientific certainty, prove that it will discover an answer to any question for which it currently has no answer. The correct term for Ethan Siegel’s assumption is “faith.” He has faith that science will eventually discover answers it does not currently have. Christians and scientists have one thing in common. They are both people of faith. They only differ in what they put their faith in.
Science has a long history of figuring things out. Figuring out that the earth is not flat. Figuring out where the sun goes at night. Figuring out that the earth revolves around the sun. Figuring out why there is such a diversity of life on this planet. etc. Because Science is evidenced based, its finding solutions is a reasoned expectation based on past performance- a completely different critter than religious faith . .

“I feel that women have the right to choose what to do to their body,” Cottrell said.
The problem is not what the women chooses to do with her body, it is what she chooses to do to the pre-born baby’s body!
Fun Facts: 1. Though, not fully developed, a babies heart starts beating at just 6 weeks. 2. Through the medical technique called embrioscopy, the baby can be watched sleeping, waking-up, yawning, turning, and stretching; just like kids all around the world! 3. “At 20 weeks, the fetal brain has the full complement of brain cells present in adulthood, ready and waiting to receive pain signals from the body, and their electrical activity can be recorded by standard electroencephalography (EEG).”
— Dr. Paul Ranalli, neurologist, University of Toronto
If a person shoots a woman and kills her unborn baby but not the mother, is that murder?
If abortion is legal until a baby can survive outside the womb, is it murder if you kill a baby in an incubator?
Do only females get to decide if a baby lives or dies?
Abortion laws make no sense.

Yes, send them to San Quentin immediately. Those who would dare carry out such a ruthless attack against Mother Earth should be locked up for life!

Well said. If a fetus is not a baby/human being, then he can’t be guilty of murder. Instead he should be on trial for forging a prescription. That being said, you know liberals/progressives live by the credo that the ends justify the means. Just take Obamacare for instance. When the dems were passing it they argued against the Republicans’ charge that they were raising taxes and insisted that it was a “penalty.” When they went before SCOTUS, they argued that it was a tax and, therefore, constitutional under congresses taxing authority. In other words, let a liberal call a coin toss and he’ll yell “heads AND tails.” They are shameless, which is why they usually win.

If the father takes the life of the baby, it’s called murder. If the mother takes the life of the baby it’s called “choice.” Same act. Same result. It’s murder either way. Unfortunately, we live in a sick society that has legalized one of those acts of murder. And, before someone spews the absurd argument that a woman can do what she wants with her body, nobody is telling her what she can do with her body. We’re saying what she can’t do to the baby’s body i.e. have it chopped up, sucked out, bagged and incinerated.

As certain as I was that George Zimmerman was innocent and should never have been dragged through the criminal justice system, I am just as certain that this evil man should spend the rest of his pathetic life in jail.

I have to disagree with Mil-Dot. Men and women ARE equal in value, but they are not the same.

I’m a Republican, but I’m a conservative first and foremost. What Jim Allen said does not in any way shape or form resemble Republican or conservative principles. Nor, do any of my conservative or Republican friends think like this or approve of such racist garbage. So, I don’t know how punks like Jim Allen ever get to the top of the party heap. Abe Lincoln must be rolling over in his grave. Aargh!

First, you have a typo. I know you meant Rom 12:2, not Tom 12:2. Although, if you have a book of Tom please let me know. :)
Second, well said.

Scripture is clear that when we come to Christ we are to repent (*) of our sins. While we will fall short at times and sin, we are to desire to be like Him and adopt His ways. I cannot call Christ my savior on one hand and then continue an unrepentant life of adultery under the guise that God made me that way. Neither can a practicing homosexual.
*The word in the New Testament usually translated “repent” is the Greek word “metanoeo”. It means “to change your mind; reconsider; or, to think differently.”

Truth: Scripture is very clear that homosexuality is a sin.
Truth: Christians are to share the “Good News” of the bible that Christ came to die for our sins and set us free from our sins.
Truth: Christians are to share the Good News in a loving way without hostility and anger toward the sinner. i.e. hate the sin, but love the sinner.
Truth: Opposing homosexuality and gay marriage is NOT, by definition, hateful. How you oppose it CAN be if done in anger.
If Mr. Chambers has sinned against homosexuals by mistreating them while trying to help them with their particular sin issue, he should confess his sin and ask for their forgiveness.
However, opposing homosexuality and homosexual marriage in a Christ-like way is what Christians are called to do. Just because we are currently losing the battle in our culture and just because there are some Christians (I’m tempted to say “so-called”, but I’ll let the Lord decide) who wish to abandon the truth of the gospel, doesn’t mean we should throw in the towel. We once were losing the cultural battle on abortion and polls clearly show a cultural shift toward pro-life sentiments.
Final Truth: Mr. Chambers may need to change how he shares the truth of the gospel without abandoning it. He is clearly confused as to how to do this.
@walking - good post!! I would add that this mans biggest mistake was thinking HE could change them. It is clear we are to witness to all about Christ. If they accept, we continue our relationship with them, teaching them further.
But if they reject it, we walk away dust our feet off and move on.
It appears that he thought he could work and live within this community and try and use HIS ideas on how to convert these people. That was a mistake.
The power of Christ crucified is enough to convert anyone that accepts that truth. Man is a messenger of the Good News and needs to leave it at that.
The article even says he struggles with his own homosexual desires. That alone should have been enough of a message from God to get away from these people, so he would no longer be tempted.
There are others that are NOT tempted that could witness to them without the temptation. I am glad he is walking away, for the sake of his own relationship with Christ. He will be free of the temptation and can focus on his walk with God.
In reply to "Bob" I agree with him 100%. Homosexuality is a sin, as is beatiality, pedophilia, adultery, covetness, stealing, lies,, and murder... but you still have to tell them that they have sinned, no one is free from sin. As believers we are free from the consequences of our sin because Jesus paid the price for our sins on the cross with His Blood, His Death, Burial and Resurrection. That is our hope. That does not negate the sin especially if one keeps on sinning. We are suppose to repent and turn from our wicked ways. None of us are "sinfree" but we are to try and be sinfree. To know that homosexuality is a sin and to keep on doing it that's what the problem lies. The consequences of that sin are still rampant today, HIV-AIDS, suicides, ruined lives. We are to love our enemies, love the sinner but "not" the sin. Mary711

Hey, JIM S
Let me answer your question of “Why would you respond at all ? A lawyers letter requesting “Cease-and-Desist” has no standing in law.”
The answer is very simple. The attorney for West Orange was using his authority as an agent of the government to intimidate and bully a private citizen who was lawfully exercising his right to engage in a legal activity. Little tyrants aspire to be big tyrants. It is important to let them know that when they exceed their authority they will be met with resistance!
