Because they combine it with some truth.
First, the lie:
Agree with us and it will cost you nothing while helping others.
What’s not to like? Well, lots, if you give it a little thought.
It will make you more popular with the world, because you’ll be perceived as loving and tolerant instead of hateful, but it denies the truth in many ways. Their agenda has and will continue to cost people their personal liberties, religious freedom and parental rights — and those are design features, not bugs.
And it doesn’t even help those it claims to. Gays have 40+ times higher rates of Syphilis and HIV, partly because 62% of men who know they are HIV-positive have unprotected sex with men. Violence is higher in LGBTQ relationships. Even gay leaders wouldn’t want gays around their teenage sons, because they know how predatory that culture can be. People can and do change sexual preferences. They are not “born that way,” and even if they were it wouldn’t justify the behavior any more than being born lustful, greedy, angry, etc. justifies those sins.
And of course, that lie explicitly denies the word of the one true God. To teach the opposite is hate, not love. Bible-believing Christians and even two out of the three types of pro-gay people* (religious or not) can see these truths:
- 100% of the verses addressing homosexual behavior describe 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 of any kind.
Then why do so many people believe the lie? Because it is packaged with some true messages. Satan is evil, but he isn’t stupid. Jesus rightly called him the father of lies, but that doesn’t mean Satan won’t gladly tell some of the truth to help sell the lies. People have known for millennia that homosexual behavior was wrong. God specifically says that you have to suppress the truth in unrighteousness to deny his existence, and one of the ways that rebellion manifests itself in in homosexual behavior.**
See how their truth and lies combination works:
Lie: Agree with us and it will cost you nothing while helping others.
Truth: Disagree with us and we will hurt you. We will relentlessly mock you in government schools, the media and entertainment. Like the blind men of Sodom, we will persist no matter what until everyone affirms us. Not just tolerates, but actively affirms. Silence will be interpreted as disapproval, and it will cost you your job, business, reputation or even your freedom. We will not quit until all churches must “marry” same-sex couples and hire actively LGBTQ people. It will be illegal to quote many parts of the Bible. It will usher in legalized polygamy, polyamory, pedophilia and more [click any of those links to see how they are already being normalized]. We pretended that we were against those but we never really cared. We favor anything that rebels against God. But don’t feel too threatened. We’ll help you convince others that the Bible doesn’t really say homosexual behavior is a sin, that it doesn’t harm people, etc.
Here’s just one recent example: LGBT Activist Declares: ‘We Need to Start Making Their Lives a Living Hell’
It’s time that the LGBT community forms a new organization that targets homophobes, bigots, religious zealots, religious fanatics, and all other assholes who are against equality, and human and civil rights for all people.
By targeting these bigots, and publishing every little detail of their sex lives, or personal lives, taking pictures through their windows, and getting the pics out on the internet, showing every little thing that they do, including how they wipe their asses when in the bathroom, or for that matter if they’re wiping their asses in the kitchen — we’ve got to catch it on camera.
The time to just sit back and take it, are over with for the LGBT community. We need to get rid of bigots like these homophobic religious assholes, and if it means exposing every little thing about them, then that’s what we need to do.
We need to start making their lives a living hell by constant observation and publishing pics and articles every time they fart, or spit, or even look cross-eyed. It’s obvious these bigots only understand one thing, and that is persecution, discrimination and bigotry.
Here come the LGBT bigots, gonna prey on the religious zealots, fanatics, and bigots who think their shit don’t stink, and think they can control everyone else’s life.
LET’S GET RID OF THESE BASTARDS ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!!
Can’t you just feel the love and tolerance? That’s just one of the countless things the mainstream media will never tell you. If they did, do you think it just might change the support for “same-sex marriage?”
That’s their combined message, and that is why so many people conveniently believe the lie. Don’t give in. Or if you have given in, come back to the truth and help others do the same. If you really love God and your neighbor you’ll speak the truth. In the next post I’ll explain an easy but provocative way to do it.
* The three general types of pro-gay theology people:
- “The Bible says homosexuality is wrong but it isn’t the word of God.” (Obviously non-Christians)
- “The Bible says it is wrong but God changed his mind and is only telling the theological Left.” (Only about 10 things wrong with that.)
- “The Bible is the word of God but you are just misunderstanding it” (Uh, no, not really.)
** Romans 1:18–20, 26-28 (ESV) 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.
