Brokeback Mountain


 
I get pretty upset at the way the entertainment industry has been trying to break down the moral values that held our society together. It is a known fact that films that portray good values earn far more money than any others and yet Hollywood keeps producing more R rated films than any others. It’s no wonder they have been losing money! They have an agenda and that is to change those moral values which we hold dear. Good becomes evil and evil good.
 
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20 
 
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippains 4:8
 
Brokeback Mountain

If he wasn’t in heaven, my father, 1930’s box-office award-winning, Hollywood cowboy star, Bob "Tex" Allen – and his more recognizable successors, like John Wayne and Gene Autry – would be rolling over in their graves. Except for an occasional movie like "Silverado," "Pale Rider" or "Tombstone," Hollywood keeps trying its best to ruin the spirit of the western. And, they wonder why most of the westerns Hollywood has been making in the last 25 years don’t make much money!

"Brokeback Mountain," a modern homosexual cowboy movie that tells the 20-year love affair between two men starting in 1963, is twisted, laughable, frustrating, plotless and often boring. It’s also politically correct. Thus, it’s sure to reap many awards this year from the leftwing media throughout the world and the leftwing elites in Hollywood, including the so-called "Gay Mafia."

The movie opens in Wyoming in 1963 where two young cowboys, Ennis and Jack, are hired to tend some sheep near Brokeback Mountain. The two men become fast friends. One night, however, their friendship becomes an evening of lust and passion, a scene that plays like a nightmarish homosexual rape set in San Quentin Prison.

For 20 years, the two men carry on a secret affair, despite the fact that they get married to women and have children. One of the wives finds out, but the other one mostly only suspects, until tragedy strikes, and she finds out for certain.

"Brokeback Mountain" is well-acted, although Heath Ledger as Ennis sometimes sounds like Carl from "Sling Blade," the character that Billy Bob Thornton made famous. The problem is that the story is relatively plotless, and the pace is slow and choppy at times. The movie’s running time is also much too long. All of this makes for a boring, and sometimes laughable, though well-produced and well-photographed travelogue.

The main conflict in this movie is between the two cowboys. Jack wants them both to get divorced and tend a ranch together, but Ennis is too afraid of the scandal their relationship would cause. Secretly, however, Ennis, is also haunted by the corpse of a murdered, castrated homosexual cowboy his father made him see when Ennis was very young. Of course, one of the two cowboys ends up being murdered, too.

Thus, in the end, the ultimate goal of the filmmakers behind "Brokeback Mountain" is to send a politically correct message about how awful American society is in its treatment of homosexuals. To complement this evil message is a scene where Jack mocks people who go to church and who sing hymns about Jesus Christ.

The movie also presents a very negative stereotype of strong heterosexual fathers. In fact, the homosexual cowboy whose guilt prevents the two perverted lovers from riding off into the sunset together is shown to be an apathetic father. Only the love of one of his daughters is able to free the man from his apathy and indifference toward her. Furthermore, the most admirable homosexual cowboy is shown to be the most affectionate father toward his child.

Of course, adding to this politically correct tone is plenty of strong foul language, explicit sex scenes and explicit nudity. Surprisingly, there also is a strong tone of sadomasochism to the homosexual relationship in the movie. These scenes probably are the most unintentionally laughable scenes in the entire movie. The movie suggests, however, that this is due to the sexual repression that American society allegedly brings against sodomites like the two homosexual cowboys.

As we predicted above, there are sure to be many leftwing awards for this twisted, laughable, frustrating, plotless and boring piece of homosexual, neo-Marxist propaganda. If only the leftists, radical feminists and communists would show the same compassion for the wives of homosexual perverts like these two characters, the world might be a better place. Don’t count on that happening any time soon, however.

  1. I saw the media coverage on CNN about this movie.And they said something to the effect that if people hate this movie because of homosexualitty that says more about them then the movie itself, because the movie is about love.What a crock eh? How carefully designed is this evil.It\’s carefully crafted so that the public should think that love is love even if its homosexual, and that if you dont agree with them you are a hateful person.This movie is a sign of the times, that is for sure.Erika

    That is probably the sickest thing I have heard all week. Sadly, I\’m sure it will do well at the box office. People are just….crazy (for lack of a better word)Great site, by the way! I found it through a link on someone else\’s site. It\’s nice to see other Christian blogs out there!

  3. What I find so funny is that the homosexual community in Hollywood doesn\’t have any really good actors so they had to hire to hetrosexuals to play the roles. But I also believe that part of their plan was to use to actors that were box office draws to draw unsuspecting people in.In the Golden Globes nominations there was not a single family oriented film named except for maybe best song. And the 3 top nominated films have to do with homosexual themes. Tells you who is running the show.

  4. Thanks for your response Gerry and for all who prayed for my \’son\’ Chris…he has not smoked weed for 5 days now, has gotten 2 jobs and seems so happy. His depression is gone and he sees a future. I pray he will continue to do well, its not the first time he has quit, but now he sees that pot is a depressant and Christmas can be spent with us..I always tell him to add a \’t\’ to the end of his name and this is Who he is representing in his actions. God Bless

  6. Shalom, my brother,God bless you and keep you. I am glad to be back,I was beginning to think I was not going to get to come back!But, praise the Lord, He made a way!I agree with you on the movie ratings, have we come along way. BACKWARDS!Well My prayers are with you,Your brother in <><ChristWinston

  7. Gerry,when i first saw any type of advertising for this movie it was in poster form. I saw Heath Ledger and thought, Oh a Heath film, YAY, and I looked for more information about it. Unfortunately the moment I found out it was about two cowboys who fall in love with each other and have a hidden homosexual life from their wives and families I have lost a lot of respect for both of the actors, not just Heath, but also Jake. It will be a little while before I will be able to watch a film with either of them in it knowing that they could and did do a movie such as this one. Like you said Hollywood is coming out with more and more movies that have nothing to do with family values but more to do with trying to shame us for having morals and Christian family values. I have seen less movies in this past year then since the year I started going to see movies in the theatre, and that is really sad.God bless in your information gathering for us and your reminders from Isaiah and Philippians.Bethany.

  8. As a former media student, I know a few things about film.The Western genre is unique… because by nature it is pretty much restricted to having all its films set in the US (with the possible exception of Quigley Down Under :-)).All western movies are evocative of the era they are made in, and because they are about America, they always relate to America during the period the film is made in. Basically westerns are always either a symbolic or critical parable of America itself in the generation they are made in.So while the film in itself may be dodgy, it says a lot more about America and it\’s culture.

  9. By the way I\’m not knocking people in the US… just elements of the apparent culture.

    I know this post will be deleted so I will keep it brief. Hatemongers like you bastardize Christianity in it\’s purest form. There is nothing "Christian" in what you preach. Go back and \’read\’ the Sermon on the Mount. You and your followers disgust me and are the antithesis of what it means to be "Christian" and a human being.

  12. BaronSo tell me just what is non-Christian about this post? Is it wrong to warn people about sin? As far as the sermon on the mount goes, I think you need to read it again. That is just one part of the Bible and Jesus had much more to say. He is the bible, He is the Living Word of God. I have much more compassion towards homosexuals than you you\’ll ever know. Again read the words of Isaiah again. They are a warning from God just for people like you. Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20

  13. I am a Christian, and I\’ve been raised to believe that to be Christian is to love thy neighbor… EVEN if that neighbor is gay… maybe it is morally wrong, but it\’s an element of society that has survived since the beginning of humanity despite persecution… persecution not unlike that which Christians have faced… It\’s fine to feel that homosexuality is wrong, and it\’s okay to say that you feel homosexuality is wrong, but be aware that you hurt people with your words, and that there is nothing Christian about that… It profoundly saddens me to see that Christians are sometimes unable to practice what they preach… Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. John 8:7

  14. SarahIf you are a Christian as you say Sarah, then you should know the Bible which you don\’t. I don\’t only feel it\’s wrong or say it\’s wrong but know without a doubt it\’s wrong. Why because I have it from the highest authorityDo you not know that the unrighteous and the wrongdoers will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived (misled): neither the impure and immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who participate in homosexuality, 1 Cor. 6:9 (AMP)Hmmm….. I guess Paul was casting a stone according to you. But the truth was, he was warning people who practice such things of the danger they were putting themselves in. As Christians we are called to have compassion on homosexuals but at the same tome warn them. Are you doing that Sarah? Are you letting them know that because of their sin they are going to an eternity without God? Every single great society\’s collapse started when they let their morals decay. That was always the beginning of the end for them and that is what is happening to western society today. Wake up Sarah! There is a huge difference in being persecuted for doing what\’s right and what is wrong. Think about it.

    okay! homosexuality… seriously people, WHO CARES if people are gay?!?! "Are you letting them know that because of their sin they are going to an eternity without God?"you know what? if its true that when we sin, we will go to an eternity without god, then we are ALL going to hell. everyone sins, its human nature. NOBAODY\’S PERFECT!even YOU sin. so lets pack our bags and get ready for hell.

  16. Shauna The Great said:

    and also, i cant even believe you have something on this site that shows "the truth about oprah" what do you have against her? you should actually be supporting her! she helps people who are in need of it! sure, shes making millions doing it, but she could easily just take her money and do nothing with it. at least shes doing something! youre just jealous.shes doing more to help others than you probably are anyways. im pretty sure you havent made houes for people or given presents to children in africa…etc. etc.

  17. Pobodys_Nerfect Your right, everybody sins and yes everybody is on their way to hell and no matter how good you are and no matter how good Oprah is it is not going to save you. No matter what kind of works you do will save you either. There is only one way out of the mess that this world is in and that is through Christ. God doesn\’t want anybody to go to hell and that is why Jesus sacrificed Himself on a cross. Sin requires punishment and we all deserve it. Jesus took our punishment for us. The only thing that is required on our part is to repent from our sins and believe. Come visit our church and see if we don\’t practice what we preach and let me ask you what are you doing to help others and bring them good news? Your lost my friend and there is nothing you can do to help yourself, only Jesus can do that for you. Oprah needs Jesus too!

  18. i am responsible for my own sins.if i have stolen, i have also been held accountable.i have accepted punishment for impeding on the rights of another.i dont want Jesus to be punished for my sin.this seems unjust and not plausible.i think Jesus has had enough torture.are we not ready to be held accountable?i am propelled to reason not impudence.back

  19. backasoreJesus is not still suffering. He paid the price once and for all time. Yes there are earthly consequences for our sins, but in heaven and in God\’s sight we have been forgiven as long we recognize the price that Jesus paid. Should we continue to sin after salvation? No! Do we sin? Yes, but if we do we have an advocate in Christ. Our freedom in Crist is never a license to sin. Our love for the Lord should be such that all desire to sin is swept away.

  20. Not many people think of the hetersexual wives/husbands who unknowingly married gay/lesbian spouses. You recognize and acknowledge the pain they go through. The children also suffer from these marriages. Thank you.Faye

  21. So…shouldn\’t homosexuals at least get *1* movie out? I mean, sure, it sucked. Who in their right mind would want to go see a movie about two fags and a horse. But still, they deserve at least one. I mean, hey, you Christians got Narnia, Passion of the Christ, and Lord of the Rings right?Yeah, I suppose Lord of the Rings isn\’t as Christian as the books, but I\’ve heard arguments to say otherwise.

  22. Also, heterosexuals didn\’t do so hot with marriage ourselves. What is it? 50% divorce rate? And Christians have higher divorce rates than non-religious ones. I mean, technically divorce is a sin, yet it goes un-noticed while you make the homosexuals out to be satanists and pagans.

  23. Couple of things.Firstly backasore… while your desire to take responsibility for your actions is both noble and admirable (if I did not know the things I know, I would probably be coming from a similar place as you), it is unfortunately futile. The whole reason Jesus died was because we are not in a position to pay for our transgressions. It would be like a man with a £10 note trying to pay off a £1,000,000 debt (and that is understating the true balance).There is a praise song called only by grace. Some of the language might seem a little strange to an outsider… but it sums up the point I\’m trying to make perfectly so I\’ll quote it:Only by grace can we enter,Only by grace can we stand.Not by our human endeavour,But by the blood of The LambInto your presence you call us,Call us to come.Into your presence you draw us,And now by your grace we come.Now by your grace we come.Lord if you marked our transgressions,Who could stand?Thanks to Your Grace,We are cleansed by the Blood of the Lamb.Blood of the Lamb is Christian lingo. It basically refers to Jesus\’ sacrifice. He\’s called the Lambe because we consider him our perfect Passover Lamb (sacrificed in Jewish Law.)Secondy, Godless Monkey… where does it say divorce is a sin? Moses made provision for it in the Law… and if I\’m not mistaken Nehemiah practically forced his people to divorce polytheistic foreign wives. Jesus brought it up because the pharisees were abusing it. They were basically marrying women and if they did not find them "satisfying" were divorcing them… treating women like slabs of meat. The pharisees were prostituting themselves. This is why Jesus taught that divorce was only to be on the grounds of marital unfaithfulness – some people take that to mean only adultery, but I think it can be applied to any serious breach of marital vows… like wife beating.Thirdly, I find it highly ironic that people are attacking Gerry when just a few days ago he was defending homosexuals from the bigotry of a moronic American preacher called Fred Phelps… if you don\’t believe me read down to the 9th December, it is there in black and green.What a lot of people are failing to see is that Gerry is demonstrating the theological principle of loving the sinner but hating the sin. He is not acting out of prejudice because he doesn\’t treat a homosexual to how he would treat anybody else.It\’s not wrong to find any actions in themselves wrong. It only becomes wrong when we start victimising people or treating them as subhuman… purely because they partake in that activity. Gerry has never in my experience treated a PERSON with hate… he has only treated ACTIONS he disagrees with, with disdain… who out of any of us has NEVER done that?Are we now criticising people for having different sets of ethical values? Is it wrong for people to have a different world view to the next person… about what is right or what is wrong? Of course it isn\’t. We are individuals… not processed peas. We are members of the human race, not robots.

  24. Hey Gerry, preach it brother!!

    It seems my comment was deleted unanswered. Oh msn… eating comments. Or maybe it struck a nerve. Good thing i saved it 😉 (I had a feeling that might happen.) Here it is agian, just in case you missed something.The gays have an agenda against the Christians??? GASP! Is that so? Those sneaky gays. They\’re as bad as the communists. Last time I checked, their \’agenda\’ was to try and live like everybody else. But hey, they might have a secret undercover lair afterall. I\’ll bet it\’s fab.So if you\’re so compassionate, why do you spew negative things like this? So others will read it and rush out to repeat and exaggerate what you\’ve said? Spreading Hatred and Paranoia 101.I love that you\’ve reviewed the movie before even seeing it. It demonstrates the actual level of your personal ignorance.Leave it to the Christians to not allow God to deal with these issues. He isn\’t personally doing anything to make the gays\’ lives difficult, so the Christians will have to take it into their own hands.Bravo.PS.. don\’t bother quoting scripture, I\’ve read the bible cover to cover, upside down and back again. I also know that you can back up anything your brain expels using it. Respond with your own words. "God said it\’s wrong.. beep…be-beep beep."

  26. In the spirit of Christmas, the holidays, and everything I believe about Christianity and myself, I am going to pray for you and your friends here. The Jesus Christ, my God, the one I know is the same one who said : Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. Romans 13:8He also is known to have been very compassionate, and I quote: He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth: but he that hath mercy on the poor, happy [is] he. Proverbs 14:21 I am not accusing you of despising, but it certainly doesn\’t sound like you are loving the same sex attracted people who live, work, and play all around you, every day.I guess i am just asking you to think about what you\’re saying in posts like these… and ask yourself whether you are using true judgement as the Lord intended, or the clouded judgement of a man, who didn\’t quite get the meaning when he read: Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Execute true judgment, and shew mercy and compassions every man to his brother: And oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart. Zechariah 7:9-10 My prayers are with you, and happy holidays. May the light of the Lord truly illuminate your heart this Christmas, and may you find peace with these demons you wrestle with, and forgive yourself as God will undoubtedly forgive you, and praise be to Jesus Christ, all of us, for our sinful ways.

  27. Oprah Again aka that pesky Oprah aka keeter jones aka BaronThis review was given for Christians in order that they may be warned about what the film contains. I have no intention of going to see a film about two guys making out. Homosexuality is wrong, has always been wrong and will always be wrong in God\’s sight. There is nothing norrow sighted about it. Like any sinner homosexuals have to come to repentence. Even the way our bodies were designed by God teaches you that it is un-natural. I will this this and I will say it LOUD and CLEAR. God loves every human being. But it is sin that seperates us from Him. Whether it be lying, stealing, gossip, hatred or homosexuality, it seperates us. The only thing that saves us is Jesus Christ. Then we are to turn from our sin not continue in it. Jesus told the woman who was caught in adultery not to sin anymore. Homosexuals are welcome in our church any time as long as they are not there to cause problems. If I was to hate them then I\’d be sinning wouldn\’t I?You think the homosexuals don\’t have an agenda. There is processes in the court right now trying to stike down religeous exemption and to try and force us to marry them. No single group in society should ever be given special priviledges above everybody else and yet the homosexual community is. Take a job application for example. There is a job opening to which two people who are equally qualified apply. One straight and one homosexual. Who do you think will get the job? The homosexual. Why? Because if they don\’t hire him He will take them to court on the basis that they didn\’t hire him because of his sexual orientation. That\’s power and it is something most others don\’t have. As for the Bible I will use it all I want, why? Because the God of this world is afraid of the truth it brings. You say you know the word but you don\’t KNOW the Word. To know the Word is to know truth and truth is found in the Word through the Holy Spirit. 18The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God\’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. 21For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. 24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. 26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. (That is pretty clear) 28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32Although they know God\’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. Romans 1:18-32Again I repeat the scripture which I believe applies to you.Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20 As a shepherd, I am told to warn people about their sin and if I don\’t, I am in just as much trouble if not even more than the people who are committing the sin. I will do everything to keep people from going to hell. If you saw people rushing into a burning building, wouldn\’t you do everything in your power to warn them and stop them? Well that is what I am doing. Nothing less! Jesus loves you my friend and so do I. If you have a problem with the way I run this blog, take it up with Him. Because you do have a problem, but your problem is not with me, it\’s with God. You visited this space of your own free will. Nobody forced you to read what is written here either.I pray that this Christmas you find that true peace and happiness that can only be found through Jesus Christ and the preciuos Light and Gift that God has given this world through Jesus Christ His Son.

  28. "PS.. don\’t bother quoting scripture, I\’ve read the bible cover to cover, upside down and back again. I also know that you can back up anything your brain expels using it. Respond with your own words."Reading and understanding are two *VERY* different issues. "Love",JasonPS: If understanding is to be "understood" by your usage of the word reading. Then we are led into the discussion of separating man\’s interpretation of His Word vs God\’s intention of His Word. Then we\’re of course led into the discussion of how does one know if they have God\’s meaning, or their own. Then we are led into the discussion of…Gee. I wonder who this is.Bottom line: God is not an idiot. Stop taking Him for one.

    Actually no, I\’m not Baron OR the elusive keeterjones. Surprisingly more than one person disagrees with youAs for understanding the bible, I have a very good grasp on it, thank you for your concern. I grew up in a christian home, attended church, bible studies, listened to the indoctrinations and theories, prayed been prayed for, gone to camp, etc etc. You imply that I don\’t understand it because I don\’t fall down and agree with your interpretation. I found out that the people there persecute others under the guise or idea that they are doing what is \’right\’. "We don\’t agree with homos, so we\’ll persecute them for their own good. We can\’t accept them.. we love THEM though.. just hate the act". A spade\’s a spade and judgement is judgement. Luckily you have been appointed by God to pass your judgement.I also understand that your ears and eyes are closed tight and I understand that I\’ve seen good people (close friends) suffer at the hands of people like you who are \’taking a stand for Jesus\’. Jesus was an implicitly kind man, I don\’t think he\’d behave this way. I don\’t think he\’d approve of the horrendous amount of hate that is spread by his flock.This is why I quit going to church and why I don\’t take my children. I\’m petrified that they will learn bigotry through \’compassion\’. I\’m sure you feel very sad about that. However I have God in my life the way I feel he was meant to be. I don\’t require other people to assimilate to my way of thinking, but it really does tick me off to see such hatemongering (great word, Baron). I hate to see my loved ones in pain at the hands of the good people who seem totally oblivious.cheers.

  30. "Ofcourse, adding to this politically correct tone is plenty of strong foul language, explicit sex scenes and explicit nudity. Surprisingly, there also is a strong tone of sadomasochism to the homosexual relationship in the movie"This reminds me of the guys who watch porn because they find it "hilarious". Why was he watching it in the first place? Yeaaaaah……

  31. "Jesus was an implicitly kind man"Thanks for confirming that you haven\’t read your Bible. Go back and read it, and rethink that hippy Jesus statement. Thanks further for confirming through your "testimony" that the real reason you have chosen the path your on is that you have not made contact with the Living God. Further to that, you blame that action on other men. Further to that, your passing your mistake onto your children. Further to that, you\’re preaching your condemnation to those that do know Him.Sorry, that\’s not going to hold up. Sorry that you missed it, but don\’t punish those that know Him. But I am not your judge, am I.Neither are you Gerry\’s despite your attempts. It couldn\’t be that you\’re backslidden and hate the sight of those that have continued where you have missed the mark.Don\’t fault God for what man has done. Don\’t fault man for what God has done.But most of all don\’t fault others for what you have done with your life."cheers"Jason

  32. The big OWhoa there guy! I don\’t have a problem with hatred towards anyone, but you certainly do. There is a lot of anger in your heart. You may say you were a Christian and attended a church been raised up in a Christian home but that doesn\’t mean you were a Christian any more than going to a McDonald\’s makes you a hamburger. If you really knew Christ, you would not have left Him. It would not have mattered to you what others did. But your eyes were not on Jesus, they were on others. People will always fail you but Christ never. You\’ve been blinded by the god of this world and have fallen into his trap.A true believer in Christ has never persecuted a homosexual, but he will love him or her and tell them they are wrong. That is real love my friend. To tell the person the truth even if it winds up costing your life or you being thrown into prison because of it. If just one life is saved because of mine it will have been worth it. But I\’m not satisfied at just one. I want to see many come to know the love Christ has as I know Him.Jesus never minced around with words. He called a spade a spade. He was kind yes but He also always dealt with the peoples sin. He always went to the heart of the matter. As for shepherds warning the people about their sins. So tell me was Paul judging when he spoke about the peoples sins? Was Peter? What about John, James or Jude? You people are fond of saying only God can judge and yet they were mere men were they not? But of course the Word was written by men as they were led by the Holy Spirit. The same Holy Spirit that is at work in the church today. God loves you but you need to get yourself right with Him. Get to know Him. Stop blamming others for your anger

  33. Got a problem with hippies? Jesus loves hippies too you know. Also, I never faulted God once. Read. Nor have I backslidden, rather made a very drawn out & conscious choice. Backsliding implies that I will want to go back one day. It also implies that I reject God, which I do not. I chose not to observe the hippocrasies and drama that go hand in hand with organized religion. (You know what happens when you get a bunch of chimps together to work on a rocket… Bad things, man. Bad bad things.)However you\’ve converted me, tally ho! End homosexuality today! I have been scorned and rebuked etc etc.

  34. wowsa.thats all i have to say. to each their own i suppose.You are in my prayers and i hope your holidays bring you and yours much joy, as i celebrate with my partner, away from my family who cannot accept me as thier son because of beliefs like your own. I have never taken anyones job because i was same sex attracted. I have however been prevented from taking jobs for it. I have also been prevented from sharing my partner with my peers for fear of physical abuse. I have experienced verbal and physical abuse for being same sex attracted. i have not verbally or physically abused anyone for being opposite sex attracted. And all along I have prayed for a simple thing. Acceptance and love for who i am. Why I ask, would God have made me and my partner this way, if it is so wrong?I trust my heart that in heaven, we will share the same rights as you enjoy. Until then, I will continue to advocate for basic human rights for people of all orientations.Happy Holidays. I won\’t post again on your site.

  35. "Got a problem with hippies?"Thanks for revealing the accusatory nature of your rationale. If I was to say that Jesus wasn\’t a black man, does that mean I have a problem with black people? Please. Try Again."Backsliding implies that I will want to go back one day."No it doesn\’t. It means you\’ve "slid back"\’ back from where you once were from God. Nowhere does it imply return or the desire to return. Thanks for revealing another error of your interpretations of simple words."However you\’ve converted me, tally ho! End homosexuality today! I have been scorned and rebuked etc etc."That\’s just weak.Jason

  37. "You are in my prayers and i hope your holidays bring you and yours much joy, as i celebrate with my partner, away from my family who cannot accept me as thier son because of beliefs like your own."That is wrong of your family. If they really are christians, unless you are planning on engaging in the act of homosexuality in their home or their presence, that is no reason to disown you. If you taunt them with it, then I can\’t say I would blame them.The simple fact that you identify your entire being based on the way you have "sex" is ridiculous. You are no different than me, except you choose to have anal sex with a man, (among other perversions with a man). I don\’t run around flaunting my sins to all the world. Much less one that uses an orifice intended to excrete feces to extract base sexual pleasure. Why make yourself a victim like this?"Why I ask, would God have made me and my partner this way, if it is so wrong?"He didn\’t make you this way. You choose to believe you are this way. I was involved in sexual sin before I met God, and trust me, it was not easy to defeat the carnal nature, and allow the spiritual nature to take precedence in my life. The truth is, you let lust control you. It\’s no different that watching pornogrphy or masturbation."I trust my heart that in heaven, we will share the same rights as you enjoy."Wow. 1 Cor 6:9. How could you miss it? Read your Bible. Repent. And live right with Him.Jason

  38. "I have to leave, I\’m going to laugh myself into a coma."Try not to trip over your words anymore on your way out.Jason

  39. keeterjonesGod never made you or your friend homosexuals. You simply believed the lie and are now living it. As I said if God meant for it to be that way he would have designed your body for accomidation. Your body is designed for a relationship with a woman. Your lifestyle is anything but normal.I am sorry to hear you have been treated like that. But I can assure you that there have been many Christians that have been spit upon and mocked. Urine and feces have been left at and smeared on their doors. Come into a true and loving relationship with Christ and let Him create in you everything you are truly meant to be.

  40. I find it so funny that those who wish critize this space have a hard time leaving a link to thier space. Could it be that they are just plain out and out cowards who like their master satan when he is confronted with the truth run, like and hide like little dogs with their tails between their legs. Guys I am way beyond being offended by words but I will not allow mockery nor plain stupidity. Ergo the deletions.

  41. Hi Gerry, Thanks for the beautiful comment on my blog. Thanks for taking the time to share God\’s word… with everyone! I am greatly encouraged by your space. Thank you for being obedient to God. You speak the truth when so many people are afraid or against it. I pray one day the brick wall that stands between the unbelievers heart and God\’s truth will be removed. I hope you have an extremely blessed CHRISTmas. God bless you always, Kim

  42. ZantiStop being a complete moron. As a minister I am called to warn the people about the consequences of sin. It\’s up to people to heed those warnings or not. If not, then they have to pay the price. It is the same way that I knew my hard disk was going to fail. My computer kept warning my and I ignored the signs. Because I ignored the warnings I am paying the price. Sin such as homosexuality or any other sin carries a cost and if you don\’t heed the warnings that are given, one day it will be too late and believe me, you don\’t want to have to face those consequences.
