When Perversion Goes Mainstream

 By Al Baker - Posted at Forget None Of His Benefits:

“Alas, sinful nation, people weighed down with iniquity, offspring of evildoers, sons who act corruptly! They have abandoned the Lord, they have despised the Holy One of Israel, they have turned away from Him.” -Isaiah 1:4.

In the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, ten New York City policemen raided the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, a place frequented by homosexuals. Most states at the time, including New York, had sodomy laws outlawing homosexual behavior. Since homosexuality was unlawful, the police were there to disperse the people from the bar. Things got out of hand and people resisted arrest. More and more homosexuals and others from Greenwich Village and surrounding parts of the city gathered the next several nights to protest so called discrimination against homosexuals. Thus was born the current homosexual rights movement. On June 28, 1970, one year after the Stonewall riots, gay pride marches were held in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. Of course the Gay Pride Movement is now ubiquitous and cities, towns, churches, businesses, and corporations have “bought into” the hype, fully embracing what progressives call inclusion, equity, and diversity.

Just last week in Southern California a brawl broke out during a meeting of the Glendale Unified School Board. The school board was reconsidering their “Pride” curriculum and LBGTQ+ issues, one of which was whether or not young children should be given the right to use whatever pronoun they choose to identify themselves. On one side of the brawl were LBGTQ+ activists and Antifa members who were stirring up trouble by attacking citizens of Glendale; and on the other hand there was a number of Armenian parents who do not want their children indoctrinated with such filth. At the very least the Armenian people (who fled to Glendale after the 1915 genocide by the Ottoman Empire where as many as one million people were murdered) are largely nominal Christians who possess very strong family values. These parents were upset by the progressive, godless, atheistic effort to indoctrinate their children. The parents were having none of it. In the meantime, my friend Phillip George, PCA pastor of Calvary Presbyterian Church, Glendale, was present at the altercation and spoke on behalf of the Armenian parents.

You do not need more evidence. You read the news. You see what is happening in our nation. Perversion has gone mainstream. This begs a question. Why is this so? One could approach this question from a political perspective, noting that the left is fully on the side of this perversion, while many on the right are merely paying lip service in their opposition to it. One could study the issue of this perversion from a cultural or psychological position, asking what cultural trends have caused this phenomenon? Or what is in this perversion which draws people to adopt behavior and attitudes, which only a short time ago, were considered abnormal, even harmful to one’s mental health?

In an update on Friday morning, Glendale police say 26-year-old Hans Schmidt, a husband and father of two, remains in critical condition. It happened on the northwest corner of 51st and Peoria avenues around 6 p.m. Friends say Hans Schmidt was standing with a megaphone on the street corner, preaching the gospel to people passing by, something he’d apparently done countless times before. Only this time, someone pulled out a gun and shot him. Friends and family can’t understand why. “Who knows why someone would want to take it out on a preacher like that because he’s speaking the gospel and good news to everybody.

Thanksgiving and our Christian heritage

By Angela Wittman "Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people."   ( 1 Chronicles 16:8, KJV ) While preparing for the gathering of family and friends this Thanksgiving season, let’s not forget to also prepare our hearts in humble gratefulness to God for the blessings and grace which He has bestowed upon us as individuals and as a nation. Here is a bit of history about Thanksgiving which you may not have been taught in school as taken from the website “A Puritan’s Mind” by Dr. C. Matthew McMahon : The celebration we now popularly regard as the ‘First Thanksgiving’ was the Pilgrims' three-day feast celebrated in early November of 1621 (although a day of thanks in America was observed in Virginia at Cape Henry in 1607)... The Pilgrims left Plymouth, England, on September 6, 1620, sailing for a new world that offered the promise of both civil and religious liberty. The Pilgrims had earlier left England in 1608, as the Church of England
