Land of Billy Graham legalizes homosexual ‘marriage’ and six judges resign rather than be forced to officiate such perversion
According to WND, with the imposition of the so called homosexual “marriage” in North Carolina, at least six judges have resigned rather than be forced to officiate such unions.
All of them stepped down, since October 10, because they believe, as God insisted, that marriage is a union between one man and one woman.
The judges are: John Kallam Jr., Gilbert Breedlove, Bill Stevenson, Tommy Holland, Gayle Myrick and Jeff Powell.
By using the foul play of judicial activism, homosexual “marriage” was imposed on North Carolina, the land of Billy Graham, striking down a law passed in 2012 banning gay “marriage,” civil unions and other same-sex partnerships.
This law had been the product of a campaign of evangelical ministers.
Rev. Billy Graham, the most famous evangelist in the world, had always avoided political fights. But in a rare move he entered then in the ballot battle in North Carolina, voicing his solid view:
“Never thought we would have to debate the definition of marriage… The Bible is clear—God’s definition of marriage is between a man and a woman. I want to urge my fellow North Carolinians to vote for the marriage amendment on Tuesday, May 8. God bless you as you vote.”
Graham’s official view was published in full-page ads in 14 North Carolina newspapers. His website encouraged churches to download a poster with his image and the message “Vote for Marriage.”
“Watching the moral decline of our country causes me great concern,” the 93-year-old pastor, who has prayed with every president since Dwight Eisenhower, said, according to CNN, in a statement on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website. “I believe the home and marriage is the foundation of our society and must be protected.”
With his important assistance, the law protecting marriage against the homosexual agenda was passed. But the homosexualist force advancing today in the U.S. does not respect anyone: families, children or Christian leaders of international prestige.
Notwithstanding Graham’s influence as the greatest evangelist in the modern history, a coalition of clergy members filed a lawsuit against the law. In the lawsuit, they said that the law violated their religious freedom by banning them from marrying homosexuals. This move was all that the Left needed to apply its judicial activism.
The coalition is led by a group of progressive leaders made up of ministers of the United Church of Christ, Lutheran and Unitarian Universalist churches and a rabbi. They said they did not want to be penalized for following their faith that allows the so called homosexual “marriage.”
“We are taking a stand for the freedom of religion,” said the Rev. Geoffrey Black, president of the United Church of Christ, which is a Protestant denomination with nearly 1 million members nationwide. Their pro-gay “marriage” message was: “Jesus didn’t reject.”
The progressive coalition achieved its aim: it struck down the efforts and sacrifices of Billy Graham and other ministers to protect the traditional marriage against the attacks from homosexual militants.
The critical phase in the war raging today in the U.S. is progressive Protestant ministers raising up to strike down the efforts of pro-family conservative ministers.
It is progressive ministers against conservative ministers. It is fight among brothers. In fact, it is fight of false brothers against true brothers.
A minister fighting to strike down laws against homosexual “marriage” is much more than a big anomaly. It is an aberration nothing different from the sin itself of the homosexual acts.
Yet, what is happening to the U.S. that even in the land of the greatest evangelist in the world homosexual “marriage” has been imposed, with the assistance of apostate ministers? Is this the reign of evil in America? Is this the reign of sodomy in America?
Days ago, Billy Graham said, “America is just as wicked as Sodom and Gomorrah.” And often he mentions, “If God doesn’t punish America, He’ll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”
Seeing the relentless advance of the gay agenda in the U.S., several American evangelical leaders are investing in the spread of a resistance in other nations. Recently, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), which is the largest homosexualist group in the U.S., issued a report entitled “Export of Hate,” denouncing American Christian leaders who, contrary to the official U.S. foreign policy promoting the gay agenda around the world, are promoting a global resistance to this agenda.
Of course, when the Evil itself calls it “Export of Hate” is exactly the contrary. Real “Export of Hate” — hate for family, children and Christians — is the U.S. government funding homosexual activism around the world.
I miss the days when the biggest U.S. export was the Gospel of Jesus Christ, with the blessing of the U.S. government. Today, it is sodomy…
The number 1 enemy in the HRC report is Rev. Scott Lively, author of “Pink Swastika,” who has distinguished himself by inspiring Russians to take a solid stand against the Western homosexualist policies. The report also points that in addition to Russia, he also travels to Uganda, Eastern Europe and England.
Lively is the author of an “An Open Letter To President Vladimir Putin,” of 2013, where he says:
The homosexualist movement is not simply seeking social tolerance, or acceptance, but political power and control. They want the power to stamp out all disapproval of homosexuality in your society and to compel every citizen (especially the youth) to embrace the view that homosexual conduct is good and normal. They ask for a place at the table, but once they have one all the social ideals they exploited to get there, such as social tolerance, freedom of speech, and respect for cultural diversity, are discarded. In place of those ideals is inserted a new backwards and upside-down morality and world-view that condemns all disapproval of homosexuality as a new fictionalized form of bigotry. I have termed this phenomenon ‘Homo-fascism’ and defined it as a form of extreme left-wing, regressive radicalism which seeks to establish rigid authoritarian controls over all public discourse and government policies regarding sexual norms and proprieties, and to enact punitive measures against conscientious objectors that would punish or suppress all disapproval of homosexuality and related sexual behaviors (that would of course even though they deny it, quickly include a sexual indoctrination and exploitation of children). In the coming months and years Russia and Her people will be increasingly portrayed by emotion laden and abusive hyperbole as bigoted haters, intent on exterminating homosexuals. Indeed, the propaganda campaign on that theme has already been initiated, with video footage purporting to show Russian neo-Nazis beating homosexuals now being circulated on the Internet, along with the false implication that this is the intent of your policy.
Other American evangelical leaders mentioned in the HRC report also travel to other nations to help them in the global resistance to the gay agenda intensely promoted by the U.S. government.
HRC and other U.S. radical homosexualist groups are very sure that they can keep ravaging conservative Christian efforts, even in the land of Billy Graham. But they are fearful about the resistance from other nations.
Russia, which recently held an international pro-family congress at the Kremlin, is an example. Other examples are coming…
