Every once in a while I run across something I wish I had written. This is one of those times. The following is an excerpt from a brilliant blog written by J. Barrett Lee. J. Barrett Lee is a Teaching Elder in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and the pastor of North Church in Kalamazoo, Michigan, where he lives with his wife and kids. In his off-time (when he has any), he likes to watch Star Trek and Doctor Who, listen to U2 and Bruce Cockburn, and play his guitar or synthesizer.
Satire warning: put on your big-girl panties.
As a baptized, ordained, practicing, Bible-reading, Spirit-filled, Jesus-loving Christian, I just have to say how sick and tired I am of these straight-marriage activists spreading their heterosexual agenda all over my church and country!
Their sinful, detestable practices are unbiblical and unnatural in the eyes of science and God. It may not be “politically correct” to say so these days, but I refuse to “tolerate” these perverts and their lies anymore…
Don’t take my word for it, here is what the BIBLE says:
After God made Adam and Eve, they had three sons: Cain, Abel, and Seth. No daughters. Yet is specifically says that Cain got married to a woman. Did you know that Cain, the firstmurderer, was a STRAIGHT? Heterosexuality and murder have gone hand-in-hand since the earliest days of the human race.
What’s even worse is that Cain got married to a woman even though the Bible very clearly states that there were no human women (other than his mother) in existence at that time. The conclusion is inescapable: Cain married an ANIMAL. Heterosexual marriage sits at the top of a slippery slope that leads directly to bestiality.
Not only that, but the Bible tells us how Lamech, an early descendant of Cain the hetero and murderer, took two wives and was a very violent person. Elsewhere in the Bible, there are other flagrant, unrepentant heteros like Abraham, David, and Solomon who have multiple wives. Judah, another heterosexual pervert, impregnates a prostitute who turns out to be his own daughter-in-law! Here again, we see the Bible clearly showing how sin begets sin and straight-marriage leads directly to POLYGAMY and FORNICATION.
Genesis 19In the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, the Bible is VERY clear in its condemnation of the heterosexual lifestyle. While the men of Sodom were at his door, Abraham’s nephew Lot (another known heterosexual) offers his virgin daughters to be raped. After Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed, Lot’s daughters, burning with heterosexual lust, get their father DRUNK and have SEX with him so that they will get pregnant. The Bible is crystal clear on this point as well: Heterosexuality leads to drunkenness and INCEST. That’s what these straight-marriage activists are pushing for. DON’T LET THEM GET AWAY WITH IT!!!
The Old Testament book of Leviticus spends significantly more time condemning straight sex than it does dealing with sexual activity between people of the same gender. Therefore, heterosexuality is obviously a far bigger problem in the eyes of God.
The most direct and clear condemnation of heterosexuality can be found in Leviticus 19:19 –
“Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee.” (Lev. 19:19, KJV)
God gave us an orderly and organized universe, therefore he is offended by different kinds of things mixing together. If God went to such lengths to condemn the mixing of different cattle, seeds, and fabrics, why wouldn’t he also condemn the mixing of genders and their bodily fluids? Do you think God would be so foolish as to overlook something that big? Obviously not. The meaning of this verse is clear: God never intended for people of different genders to mix sexually.
Jesus never had a bad thing to say about same-sex relationships. He obviously didn’t consider them to be much of a problem. But he had quite a bit to say about the sin of heterosexuality! In his Sermon on the Mount in Matthew’s gospel, Jesus tells us that even those who secretly harbor heterosexual tendencies are in danger of burning in hell:
Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
If the heterosexual orientation is so “normal”, as straight-marriage activists claim it is, then why is there no evidence that Jesus ever married a woman? If the Son of God thought it was worth avoiding, then Christians should too.
