It’s fascinating to me to watch the Christian right come to terms with the fact that they’re so obviously losing the fight against LGBT equality. A couple weeks ago Tony Perkins claimed that they were winning the war on equality. Now Scott Lively says sure we’re losing, but in 2014 we’re gonna make a comeback!
Yes, 2013 was the year of the LGBT agenda. But I‘m predicting 2014 will be the Year of the Pro-Family Push-Back!
The homosexual movement may have built up a formidable army of activists and an enormous war machine over the past forty years, but even at its best it is no match for an awakened Christian church. And for the first time in my 25 years of service as a Christian social activist I believe the church has been awakened. It hasn’t buckled on its armor. It’s not even standing on its feet yet. But the church of Jesus Christ — the universal body of Bible-believing Christians spanning every denomination and confession — finally has its eyes open and is aware that the enemy has breached the outer walls…
At the close of 2013 the Christian church is now wide awake and concerned. The giant is sitting up on the edge of the bed, ready to put on his shoes and go out to deal with this problem.
It’s just a flesh wound! Come back here and fight like a man! Sorry Scott, you’re wrong. You’ve already lost this fight. You lost it a long time ago. You lost it the moment gay people started coming out of the closet. Now virtually everyone under the age of 40 or so knows a gay person and thus knows that your attempts to portray them as demonic pedophiles out to destroy the world are total bullshit.
And I have no intention at all of winning this one graciously. I’m going to laugh in your face and metaphorically bathe in your tears.
