I have examined one aspect of homosexuality that is antithetical to the character and nature of God. It is sterile, devoid of life, and a spreader of death to mankind. It has been observed that Yahweh’s plan for man is that humanity might be conformed to His own image and likeness. Yahweh is a source of life, and there is no death in Him. We are also told that Christ is a life-giving spirit. A very well known Scripture declaring the nature of Christ is the following.
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me.”
In this post I want to focus on another aspect of homosexual behavior, demonstrating that it not only deviates from the “life” found in Christ, but it also is devoid of “truth.” In this series I have shown that many lies are being spread by the proponents of homosexuality. Two days ago, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed into law legislation that is similar to that which Governor Jerry Brown of California has made the law of his state. It is now illegal in New Jersey to offer change counseling to anyone under the age of 18 who identifies as a homosexual. I would like to examine a news report posted to the Fox News website on this new legislation in order to identify the lies that are being propounded. The article is titled:
NJ Gov. Christie signs ban on controversial gay conversion therapyPublished
August 19, 2013
One of the implicit lies of this news articles is that Governor Christie has arrived at this decision on his own. Chris Christie is a puppet being controlled by unseen masters. Like the President of the United States, he follows the script that has been delivered to him. There is an unseen hand guiding Governor Christie’s policies. It is a work of deception to portray his legislative acts as something he arrived at independently after conscientious consideration. Nothing could be further from the truth.
(For those unfamiliar with the depths to which Americans have been deceived about their government and who truly controls it, I recommend the book Dragon Flood.)
The article begins with the following statement.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed into law on Monday legislation that bars licensed therapists from trying to turn gay teenagers straight, though the Republican said in a statement he did so “reluctantly…”
“Government should tread carefully into this area,” he said in the signing note, “and I do so here reluctantly.”
The media is an instrument in the hands of a global elite to portray before humanity a deceptive image of the world.
It suits them to portray Governor Christie as a public servant who is concerned for the welfare of the citizens of his state. This image is a thin facade to mask the ambitious, self-serving motives that truly drive this man. There was no “reluctance” in this act. Chris Christie has sold himself to do the work of globalists who are pressing forward an agenda inspired by Satan. The apostle Paul pulls back the curtain and exposes the true character of such men.
II Corinthians 11:14-15
Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their deeds.
Governor Christie pretends to be concerned about the health of the young people in his state, and the media which is owned by the same global masters he serves, is complicit in fostering an image of a man who is acting on behalf of the people’s welfare. The article continues:
Christie said the health risks of trying to change a child’s sexual orientation, as identified by the American Psychological Association, trump concerns over the government setting limits on parental choice…
Christie said on “issues of medical treatment for children we must look to experts in the field to determine the relative risks and rewards,” citing a litany of potential ill effects of trying to change sexual orientation, including depression, drug abuse and suicide.
“I believe that exposing children to these health risks without clear evidence of benefits that outweigh these serious risks is not appropriate,” he said…
This series has shown that homosexual behavior is intrinsically unhealthy. Let Governor Christie go view the AIDS quilt the next time it is displayed in Washington, D.C.. As immense as it is, the quilt represents only a fraction of the people who have died as a result of contracting this deadly virus that is spread by homosexual behavior. The number of young people who suffer depression, and attempt suicide, is far higher among homosexuals than heterosexuals. Drug use among practicing homosexuals is also higher than that of the heterosexual population.
Matt Barber, a columnist for World Net Daily, provided an analogy to reveal the dishonesty of the pro-homosexual lobby. After citing a recent CDC report that reveals that one in five homosexual males is infected with the HIV/AIDS virus, he states:
As the CDC has once again verified, if you affirm or defend homosexual behavior as “normal, natural and good,” you also defy science. You’re on the wrong side of history, let alone reality.
What is it about this particular PC-protected practice that causes so many otherwise intelligent people to become blinded blathering buffoons?
Let’s say we had a group of people who defined their identity based upon a penchant for running headlong into brick walls. Oh, we’ll call them, “Wallies.” (Wally pride, baby!)
As significant percentages of Wallies began to drop dead, or suffer irreversible brain damage, do you suppose the Left would demand tolerance for such behavior? Do you think they’d begin handing out bicycle helmets in elementary schools, telling kids to practice safe walling? With liberals, anything’s possible, but I’m more inclined to think that even the moonbat Left might agree that people tending toward such behavior would be best served to simply avoid running headlong into walls altogether.
I don’t mean to be flip (okay, maybe a little flip) but can someone please tell me why on earth the Left insists that we “tolerate” homosexual behavior while – as the CDC has once again confirmed – it continues to have results similar to brick-walling?
We throw paper-thin latex condoms at kids who struggle with same-sex attraction and tell them: “You’re gay! Embrace who you are. Gay pride, baby!”
We push them out onto a paper-thin latex tightrope with a one-in-five chance they’ll plummet to their death.
What in the name of all things sacred are we doing? One-in-five with AIDS? Seriously? If five people got into a car and were told that one of them wasn’t going to survive the drive, how quickly do you suppose they’d scatter?
Unnatural behaviors beget natural consequences. Scripture admonishes: “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23.
A very big lie is being spoken when men in government cite the health risks of changing a person’s sexual orientation back to that which God created to be normal. Abnormal equals unhealthy. Unnatural actions lead to sickness, depression, and death. The human conscience informs an individual of the deviancy of their actions. Violating one’s conscience leads to depression, for a person cannot feel good about themselves morally as long as their conscience condemns them.
It was sodomites within the American Psychiatric Association who removed homosexuality from the APA’s list of mental illness and deviant sexual behavior. Yet Governor Christie would put greater weight upon the opinions of sodomite men than he would upon the word of God. Of course sodomites are going to say that it is unhealthy to try to change the sexual orientation of a homosexual. Yet, such a claim is an example of telling a big lie. Yahweh declares that turning away from unnatural and immoral behavior is the ultimate act of health, and it is life giving.
“Say to them, ‘As I live!’ declares Yahweh God, ‘I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn back, turn back from your evil ways! Why then will you die?”
My brethren, if any among you strays from the truth, and one turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death, and will cover a multitude of sins.
Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him. Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed.
Governor Christie is espousing lies when he says that it is unhealthy to turn a homosexual away from their behavior. Satan is a liar. There is no truth in him. You will recognize his servants by the lies they tell and by their opposition to the word of truth.
The Fox News article continues:
The decision marks the third time this month that Christie has staked out a moderate position on a hot-button social issue as he seeks a second term in a Democratic-leaning state.
Christie found middle ground on medical marijuana for children when he agreed Friday to allow growers to cultivate additional strains, and for marijuana to be made in an edible form for chronically ill children. But he would not lift an oversight provision that could require as many as three doctors to sign off on a prescription.
Satan is cunning like a Fox. Many readers will accept the characterization of Governor Christie’s actions as “moderate,” and a “middle ground.” These words are intentionally used to defuse any criticism of his actions being extreme. The media masters would have readers to perceive the Governor’s actions as mainstream, while depicting attempts to restore people to sexual normalcy as extreme. There is nothing moderate about this legislation. It is radical in the extreme. It is a blatant example of rabid homosexual advocacy.
The article further states:
In signing the ban, Christie reiterated his belief that people are born gay and homosexuality is not a sin, a position he first stated in a 2011 interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan. That view is inconsistent with his Catholic faith, which teaches that homosexual acts are sins.
Here are more lies, for men and women are NOT born gay, and homosexuality is a sin. Notice carefully that the view that people are born gay is described as a “belief.” There is no scientific evidence that people are born as homosexuals. Yet, by referencing the APA both before and after this statement, the impression is given that there is some scientific basis for this false view. Governor Christie might be surprised, or dismayed, to know that there are members of the homosexual community who stridently deny that people are born gay.
Camille Paglia, who is a practicing lesbian, nevertheless rejects the deception and outright lies that the media, medical, and scientific communities have used to advance the spread of homosexuality. Coming from a self-professed lesbian pagan, her scathing exposure of the lies of homosexual advocates is an anomaly. In her book Vamps and Tramps, Paglia shares the following statements. (My comments will be in parentheses.)
For the past decade, the situation has been out of control: responsible scholarship is impossible when rational discourse is being policed by storm troopers, in this case gay activists, who have the absolutism of all fanatics in claiming sole access to the truth…
In the Eighties and early Nineties, displaced anxiety over the horror of AIDS turned gay activists into rampaging nihilists and monomaniacs, who dishonestly blamed the disease on the government… AIDS did not appear out of nowhere. It was a direct result of the sexual revolution, which my generation unleashed with the best of intentions, but whose worst effects were to be suffered primarily by gay men. In the West, despite much propaganda to the contrary. AIDS is a gay disease and will remain one for the foreseeable future…
Homosexuality is not ‘normal.’ On the contrary, it is a challenge to the norm; therein rests its eternally revolutionary character Queer theorists – that wizened crew of flimflamming free-loaders – have tried to take the post structuralist tack of claiming that there is no norm, since everything is relative and contingent. This is the kind of silly bind that word-obsessed people get into when they are deaf, dumb, and blind to the outside world. Nature exists, whether academics like it or not. And in nature, procreation is the single, relentless rule. That is the norm. Our sexual bodies were designed for reproduction… no fancy linguistic game-playing can change that biologic fact…
ACT-UP won substantial practical victories in its mobilizations against the political and medical establishment, but its most crazed extremists also did enormous damage to the public image of gay men that will take a generation to undo. Flashed across the nation’s television screens were contorted male faces, raging, ranting, bawling like infants – ‘Me, me, me!’
Total attention and an instant cure were demanded, even though science had failed to find a cure for any virus, even the common cold…
ACT-UP’s hysteria made me reconsider those vilified therapists and ministers who think change of homosexual orientation is possible and whose meetings are constantly disrupted by gay agitators. Is gay identity so fragile that it cannot bear the thought that some people may not wish to be gay. Sexuality is highly fluid, and reversals are theoretically possible. However, habit is refractory… a phenomenon obvious in the struggle with obesity, smoking, alcoholism, or drug addiction… Helping gays learn how to function heterosexually, if they so wish, is a perfectly worthy aim…
Heterosexual love is in sync with cosmic forces. Not everyone has the stomach for daily war with nature…
(Joseph’s Comment: As a pagan, Ms. Paglia identifies the divine presence in, and divine order of, creation as “cosmic forces.” Yet she rightly concludes that people must wage daily war to deny what is obviously the proper order of nature. This is the main reason why there is so much mental illness, depression, and drug use among homosexuals. The stress resulting from embracing an unnatural sexual order bears down upon individuals until many break from the strain.)
The sexual segregation of gay bars following Stonewall was bad for everyone. The men slid into orgiastic narcissism, and the women entombed themselves in a gigantic burrow, the clogged honeypot of lesbian feminism… Now that twenty-five years have passed, it’s time to admit that lesbian feminism has produced only the ghettoization and miniaturization of women…Women never grow from the moment they enter the lesbian world. Hence one is deafened in bars by the juvenile whooping and hollering of packs of lesbians greeting each other like screeching teens arriving at a slumber party…
(Joseph’s Comment: The charge of immaturity was similarly leveled by Simon Fanshawe, a male homosexual, who produced the documentary The Trouble With Gay Men. Fanshawe asked, “Why do we seem hell bent on behaving like eternal teenagers?” I think there is much more truth in Mr. Fanshawe’s statement than he realized. Homosexuals are “hell bent” in more ways than one. Not only are they destined to experience a fiery judgment, but their lives are twisted by the very being for whom hell was created. Immaturity is a characteristic of all who give themselves over to a pursuit of sin. No man or woman can arrive at the fulness of the stature that belongs to Christ as long as they are pursuing immorality.)
When women withdraw from men, as has been done on a massive scale in lesbian feminism, we have a cultural disaster on our hands. In such a situation, men are divided from themselves and women simply fail to mature. Lesbian feminists, for all their ideals of sisterhood and solidarity, can treat each other with a fickleness, parasitic exploitativeness, and vicious spite that have to be seen to be believed…
Today, when a freshman has an affair with another girl all the campus social-welfare machinery pushes her toward declaring herself gay and accepting and ‘celebrating’ it. This is a serious mistake… It is absurd to say that one, two, or more homosexual liaisons make you ‘gay’ – as if lavender ink ran in your veins. Young women are often attracted to each other during a transitional period when they are breaking away from their parents, expanding their world-views, and developing their personalities. To identify these fruitful Sapphic idylls with a permanent condition of homosexuality is madness, and the campus counselors who encourage such premature conclusions should be condemned and banished. They are preying, for their own ideological purposes, on young people at their most vulnerable.
(Joseph’s Comment: In describing lesbian encounters as “fruitful Sapphic idylls” Ms. Paglia is revealing her aberrant personal view that homosexual experiences are beneficial. Nevertheless, she recognizes that the psychiatric and counseling communities are pushing a demented ideology upon youths who experiment sexually, by seeking to convince them that they are homosexuals, locking them into an identity that they are told cannot be changed. The author then speaks to the issue of lesbians increasingly employing sex toys modeled after the male body in order to stimulate themselves. She suggests that such women reject men for reasons other than sex, and they need to deal with the true root of their rejection. She reasons that if a woman is not antagonistic toward men, and is stimulated by toys modeled after the male sex organ, they might as well get a real man. Her arguments are quite rational and reveal a cognitive dissonance, and underlying dishonesty, among the homosexual community.)
Visiting the elite schools on my lecture jaunts I am struck by how the most militantly gay, Foucault-addled male students look like orphans, with 12-year-old Huck Finn clothing styles and haunted, starved eyes. My friend Robert Caserio says, ‘Queer theory isolates them from reality.’ This is one reason why gay studies in its current separatist form, must be opposed…
It is ridiculous to assert that gay men are interested only in other gay men and would never ogle straight men in barracks showers. When I heard this on TV I burst out laughing. Anyone who belongs to a health club knows better. Sexual tension and appraisal are constants, above all among gay men, who never stop cruising everything in sight. Seduction of straight studs is a highly erotic motif in gay porn…
Do we want the sexes forever divorced, in a state of permanent alienation? Lesbianism is increasing, since anxious unmasculine men have little to offer. Male homosexuality is increasing, because masculinity is in crisis… Current gay cant insists that homosexuality is ‘not a choice,’ … but there is an element of choice in all behavior, sexual or otherwise. It takes an effort to deal with the opposite sex; it’s safer with your own kind.
(Joseph’s Comment: The author here touches on a subject that I believe needs further exploration. A leading contributor to homosexual behavior among both men and women, is an absence of true masculinity among males. Men are not living in conformity to Yahweh’s design for men. They are failing at being the spiritual leaders, moral shepherds, and the defenders of truth that they were designed to be. Adam was not deceived in the Garden of Eden (I Timothy 2:14), which makes his participation in sin all the more egregious. His was a true moral failing. When men fall short of the image and likeness of God, they become less desirable to the soul of the woman. If Christ is the image of the perfected Bridegroom, the ultimate husband, then antichrist must be an undesirable image for woman. Those males manifesting this spirit would logically have less desire to enter into a holy and complete union with the woman, a union that includes, but transcends, the sexual relationship. The prophet Daniel describes one antichrist ruler in the following words. “And he will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the desire of women…” Daniel 11:37)
We should be aware of the potentially pernicious intermingling of gay activism with science, which produces more propaganda than truth. Gay scientists must be scientists first, gays second…
Midway through the AIDS epidemic, the media, having ignored homosexuality or treated it in a lurid manner, did a quick flip-flop under activist pressure and now continues its policy of unthinking cant by parroting the gay establishment party line on every occasion. Gay activists have earned a reputation as conspirators and casuists, because of their amoral tactics of deceit, defamation, intimidation, and extortion…
These are the words of a lesbian as she looks at the dishonesty of the homosexual movement with an insider’s view. With charge after charge, she exposes the lies, fraud, and deception of homosexual advocates. Homosexuality is an altogether dishonest lifestyle. Homosexuals lie to themselves as they say they did not choose their behavior. They lie to one another and to the world as they say they were born homosexual and cannot change. They are disingenuous in depicting homosexuality as normal and wholesome when it is unnatural and unhealthy mentally, spiritually, and physically.
We are increasingly seeing the government and media act as the “intimidation, and extortion” arm of the homosexual agenda. By introducing extreme laws that even forbid offering counseling to a person who wishes to overcome same-sex attraction, the government is placing its jackboot on the necks of those who have rational arguments, and compassionate concern, for those who are held in bondage to a destructive behavior. The Fox article ends with the following statement that is intended to vilify all who disagree with the government’s immoral and destructive policies.
Conversion therapy has increasingly drawn criticism for its methods. Last year, four gay men sued a Jersey City group for fraud, saying its program included making them strip naked and attack effigies of their mothers with baseball bats.
This is a further example of the deceit being employed to defend the actions of the pro-homosexual advocates. A more extreme, unorthodox, example of conversion therapy can hardly be imagined. Rather that providing an honest description of the practices employed by the majority of counselors, whether they be Christian or secular, Fox News chose an egregious example of bizarre methodology in order to defame all counselors offering conversion therapy.
Homosexuality is not only a culture of death, it is one of lies and deception. Homosexuality is championed by liars. Its claims are predicated upon fraud and deception. It portrays itself in a false light as people seeking wholesome and committed long term relationships. It stifles all honest discourse, and it is now criminalizing the proclamation of truth, even when it offered with compassion. The practice of homosexuality is altogether incongruous with the divine nature.

While her honesty on the subject is refreshing, Ms Paglia's honesty is also sad. When one can look unflinching at the truth of sin and not turn away, it is sad. She truly needs our prayers.
