Response to Bigot
A Christian who defends their religious freedom is
attacked by a school
board member who stood up in front of the cameras and stated BlessedCause
is a form of bigotry, is it true?
"If you think I hate Muslims, you don't know me very well.
Though I haven't met many Muslims, what few I have met were positive
experiences. I am very fond of a particular Muslim friend. He is sincerely one of the nicest
people I know, and we avoid the topic of religion. I've noticed
how we all bend over backwards to make sure he doesn't feel
scrutinized, but rather accepted and loved, which he is.
If my teenage son brought home a Muslim friend I would welcome them
just as I have his Buddhist, atheist and Jewish friends. I have
no problem with getting along with Muslims. Many of them have
not read their Quran just as many Christians have not read their
Bible. It is not my job to beat people up with my religion,
rather, God commands we love everyone.
The only group I have trouble loving is liberals who appear to be
bent on corrupting children. They have gone to such an extreme of decimating Christianity,
that revisionist historians have stripped
America's rich Christian heritage from us.
My son came home and repeated what he learned in school, "Mom, we
can't talk about Jesus because it offends other people."
If we moved to Africa and the Africans were worshipping their
gods, would I be offended? Would I hold up my fist and shout,
"Stop it! You are offending me!
You must have no religion because I don't believe in your god!"
How ridiculous. But that is exactly what liberals insist we do
and deny the Christian heritage this nation was born on.
Christians respond without objection. The love of Christ is
not to be forced, therefore we allowed the name of Jesus Christ to be
censored in public school. But now, incredibly, liberals have gone further to insist our children learn the ways of other gods,
participate in ceremonies, imagine they are Muslim soldiers, are asked to pray to
Allah so that they can
"understand" Islam. And if a Christian objects we are labeled
bigots and intolerant.
To ask a Christian child to participate in worship of other gods is
worse than asking a married woman to commit adultery to understand the
adulterer. Our God is a jealous God!
Yet public school insists all of these practices are only to better
understand other cultures. Our children would better understand
other cultures if they would at least give them the truth about
I challenge anyone to read the direct quotes of the textbooks,
promoting Islam and maligning Judeo-Christianity, and still claim they
cannot see the hypocrisy! (although the Bible did say people
would be blind). People who call me a bigot or intolerant have
done so without reading the evidence. Even my worst critics have
changed their tune once they truly examined the facts. But people would rather take a superficial look and
immediately start name calling. So be it. Call me what you
will but I will not sit quietly by while our children are
indoctrinated into antichrist beliefs. I
am very confrontational about what the Quran states and how the
textbooks whitewash and promote it as peaceful while simultaneously,
Christians and Jews are being slaughtered by the millions all over the
world in the name of Allah. Something that Muhammad himself did as he
led more than 20 slaughters of Christians and Jews and masterminded
more than 60 others. Muhammad instructs Muslims
to do likewise in the Quran, the root of the belief.
Public schools continue to promote Islam, and
worse, it is obvious that the true effort
of public education is to
promote atheism. California's
state standards are a thinly veiled license to do just that.
Love Muslims, yes. Embrace the beliefs? Force them on
impressionable school children as peaceful when nation after nation
has toppled under the sword of Islam? No. Allow public
education to lie to our children about Jesus Christ or the Torah?
NO. There are other ways of teaching tolerance without
Christians, are we cowering in fear at being called bigots and
intolerant? Will you speak up and defend our faith and our
children? God said Christians would be martyred for standing in
the name of Christ. As we watch the prophesies being fulfilled
before our eyes, will you stand on the promise of Jesus Christ who
died for us, Who has gone to make a home for us in heaven, or will you
drop the love of Christ in fear from mere name-calling? Do you
run like the apostles on the night He was betrayed? They were
faced with torturous death, what are we faced with, NEGATIVE PUBLIC
OPINION? This nation was once "The Land of the Free and the Home
of Brave." We are quickly becoming the "Land of the manipulated and
home of the Cowards."
Will you stand with Him during the dark times to come or will you
flee? Christian, are you His? Like Christi Bernall at
Columbine, will you stand for Christ?"
I have made plenty of bad choices in my life and I don't believe
it's my place to attack others. Yet I speak out against validating
that choice to children.
I was very close once with a gay man. His name was Jay, and he was extremely
"popular." We were both so lost in those days and I saw first hand what
living the gay lifestyle cost him. Not because people condemned him, but
because of the life. I know for a fact Jay would not have recommended
homosexuality for children. He wanted to go straight, but once you walk down
that path, turning around is almost impossible, except by the power of
Jesus Christ, which transforms people.
Since finding Christ, I tried to find Jay, but he had moved away
and old friends didn't know where he was, except for a rumor that he
had aids. This truly breaks my heart.
I am not intolerant of gays. I have partied with them, I have wept for them,
I have listened to their suffering as I've washed their feet. God knows
intensely the pain we suffer because of our choices. God knows the pain of
the AIDS victim intently. God is not out to destroy our fun and
freedom, He made us and He knows what is best for us! When we ignore
His warnings and then suffer the consequences, many of us blame God!
God never intended for us to suffer like we do. We bring it on
ourselves, and just as a mom or dad hates to see their children
suffer, so does God hate to watch us suffer. It's why He takes the
time to warn us not to do the things that harm us. It's why He sent His Son.
I wish I listened long ago. I wish we'd listen now.
letter to the editor by JenT
(New Times changed the title to
"No Homos Please", typically trying to demonize the Christian)
I was saddened by last weeks letter regarding testing our sexuality. I'd
like to ask a question. Can you remember when you were first told how your
mom and dad "made" you? In my generation, we learned these facts at age 8 or
9, and everyone I knew was completely grossed out. But as we grew, we
gradually accepted the idea. With time, we came to love sex so much that
divorce or sudden abstinence is shattering.
I am not gay, the thought of sex with a woman feels very similar to my first
reaction to intercourse. But if I watched movies of women with women,
imagined myself with another woman, and allowed myself to get used to the
idea, I have no doubt I could develop those desires. <shudder>
This is why I am opposed to teaching children homosexuality in public
school. Children learn what you teach them! I am astounded that we are now
teaching children homosexuality in sex education, then sending many to gym
class and telling them to shower together. Do the distinguished educators of
California remember the curiosity and daring of teenage boys?
Teach our children tolerance? YES. Teach our children to participate in
every practice imaginable to promote tolerance? NO. A small group demanded
Christianity be silenced in school. Christians gracefully said okay. Now
every other belief is fighting over our children's education. Parents, it is
time to object and protect our children. -JenT,
How can public school teach homosexuality to children? Anal
intercourse (I can barely even write it) is NOT HEALTHY and not a natural
act. Any doctor will confirm it is NOT HEALTHY, so why is public
school teaching it as acceptable? This is a lawsuit just waiting to
happen. We can opt our children out of this class, but can we opt them
out of a corrupted society?
