Normally I wouldn’t recommend this . . .

. . . but I encourage Bible-believing Christians to visit the Sojourners’ blog and comment there.   Yes, I know they are led by Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis and they live a lie each day, pretending to be centrists — and Christians — when they are really to the left of the Huffington Post.

But oddly enough they are letting Bible-believers post comments now without moderation.  I’m not sure if it is because they moved to a Facebook comment format or if their moderators changed.  Either way, there are several solid commenters there and we often outnumber the Leftists!  So be sure to visit and comment or at least “like” the comments you agree with.  It is great to know that visitors who read the comments will see some balance and the truth.

The commenters are often used to an echo chamber (they know that Sojo is really a Leftist front) so they go into full freak-out mode when their assertions are politely but thoroughly debunked.  I have had multiple theological Liberals get so frustrated with having their arguments annihilated that they deleted entire threads that they started!  Think about that: If you were winning a debate would you delete the thread?  It just happened again on this post where a Leftist calling God a “she” was referring to Shelby Spong, Marcus Borg, etc. as Christ-followers and great theologians.  I need to start copying those before they get deleted!  (Unfortunately, if the originator deletes a comment then the replies go with it.)

So be your usual polite, fact-based, Bible-based selves and weigh in when you have time, or at least “like” the comments you agree with.  It is a great opportunity to stand up for the truth and expose their dark, anti-biblical views.

Hillbuzz on Herman Cain

In Another reason to like Herman Cain I noted how I appreciated his simply stated, biblically accurate views on homosexual behavior when CBS tried one of their tiresome “gotcha” questions:

In an interview on CBS News:

“I believe homosexuality is a sin because I’m a Bible-believing Christian, I believe it’s a sin. But I know that some people make that choice. That’s their choice.”

Of course, the mainstream media and the far Left will hate him for that.  But note that Cain (and every Christian I know) aren’t trying to get in the middle of the lives of gays.  We take a live-and-let-live approach, only getting involved when the lobby tries to redefine marriage or teach 5 yr. olds how “normal” transgenderism is and how you don’t really know if you are a boy or a girl.

But that’s why Hillbuzz is my favorite blog run by gay guys (OK, it is the only one I follow, but still . . .).  They are well aware of how dangerous the Left is and, despite being gay, they don’t follow the party line.  See  Media Manipulation (And Eeyore Breeding) Alert: Herman Cain on Homosexuality | Hillbuzz.  I encourage you to read the whole link, but especially the bolded parts below.  While the media and false teachers* will tell you what haters Christians are, there are many reasonable people who have learned who the truly vicious haters are.

I don’t believe Herman Cain is bigoted against gay people (certainly not in the same way that the LSM is bigoted against Christians.) As Kevin DuJan has said many times, as a Gay man, he has faced far more abuse and discrimination from Leftists (who want him to die a painful death) than he ever has from Christians (who, at worst, have threatened to pray for him). [Emphasis added]

Now, why would Lamestream Dinosaur Democrat Media Outlet CBS News want to put a soggy black raincloud of doom over the head of Herman Cain? Why would CBS want Republican and libertarian voters to dismiss this self-made man, who won the first GOP primary in South Carolina, has a track record of turning around failing businesses (and who, P.S., is black)? Why would the LSM want to use social issues to drive a wedge between libertarians and religious conservatives?

If you’ve been following along at home, the answer is “Because the LSM and Democrats (redundancy alert) believe Herman Cain can beat Obama.”

Herman Cain’s religious beliefs are shared by millions of Americans on the “religious Right.” (They aren’t shared by me, as it happens, but more on that in a moment.) I believe this news story was designed to drive a wedge between this segment of the Anti-Obama Coalition and libertarian-leaning GOP voters like myself.

And before Kevin DuJan taught us all about Eeyorism, I would have fallen for it.

If Herman Cain’s religious beliefs bother you, I’d like you to take a deep breath, and give the issue more thought than the LSM wants you to. I expect my take on this will be extremely controversial. But I’m going to go out on a limb and treat Hillbuzz readers like thoughtful, intelligent adults, unlike the LSM. (I realize this is a risky thing to attempt on the Internet. But I think the Buzzverse can handle it.)

. . .

Tell me again what Herman Cain’s personal religious beliefs have to do with unemployment, the plummeting value of the dollar, the unending corruption in Washington, the flight of capital out of the country, $4 gas, the ban on offshore drilling, or selective enforcement of Federal election law by Eric Holder’s Justice Department.

The answer is, as a libertarian, Herman Cain’s personal religious beliefs are immaterial, and of no concern to me, because the First Amendment and Federal law prevent him from inflicting them on me. [Emphasis in original]

Our Founding Fathers were geniuses. They created a public system that would allow for a diversity of private opinions. The Constitution and Bill of Rights protect non-religious people like me from the tyranny of a religious majority. The First Amendment prevents any candidate from inflicting his or her personal beliefs on me.

Remember, the LSM is totally and completely in the tank for Obama. You must evaluate all anti-GOP political coverage in that context.

Recognize this CBS news story for what it is…yet another transparent attempt by the LSM to divide the Anti-Obama Coalition and pick our candidate for us!  [Emphasis in original]

How many more times are conservatives and libertarians going to fall for this?

I’m so glad they see through what the MSM is doing here.

I don’t hate gays.  I’ve known a bunch and still do.  We get along great.  I have their long-term best interests at heart.  I seek to share the Gospel with them, if they are interested.  That’s love, not hate.

Another reason to like Herman Cain

Be sure to click the link and watch the short video so you can hear how he responds.   Herman Cain Speaks Bluntly: ‘I Believe Homosexuality Is a Sin … Their Choice’.

In an interview on CBS News:

“I believe homosexuality is a sin because I’m a Bible-believing Christian, I believe it’s a sin. But I know that some people make that choice. That’s their choice.”

Woo-hoo!  A politician who can give a straight answer and not apologize for it.  Oh, and he gets the Bible right, too:

  • 100% of the verses addressing homosexual behavior denounce it as sin in the clearest and strongest possible terms.
  • 100% of the verses referring to God’s ideal for marriage involve one man and one woman.
  • 100% of the verses referencing parenting involve moms and dads with unique roles (or at least a set of male and female parents guiding the children).
  • 0% of 31,173 Bible verses refer to homosexual behavior in a positive or even benign way or even hint at the acceptability of homosexual unions.

It is not. That. Complicated.

And I like his Libertarian edge.  He isn’t out to demonize gays or restrict their relationships, he is just stating the biblical truth.  And he is smart enough to know that the people who will vilify him for saying that weren’t going to vote for him anyway!  I wish other Christians weren’t so gutless in denying those truths.

I really hope Cain does well.  I’d love to see him on the Republican ticket somewhere.  (Having said that, I’ve been very impressed with Pawlenty lately.  The knock on him was that he was boring, but he has been bold and clear thus far.)

More from Stacy McCain:

Cain is trying to focus his campaign on jobs, the budget and economics — these are his strengths, as a business executive — but he necessarily gets asked by reporters about all sorts of issues. A key factor in Cain’s appeal is his plain-spoken nature and, when asked about homsexuality, he stated (a) his personal belief as a Christian, and (b) his libertarian understanding that people have to live their own lives according to their own choices.

For two decades at least, gay activists have used the “born that way” argument in an effort to gain civil-rights protection for homosexuals, attempting to make sexual preference a hereditary factor analogous to race. So Cain’s remark about sexuality as a “choice” is likely to offend gay activists as much as his remark about “sin.” But I think it’s important to grasp the libertarian sense in which he uses “choice.”
