INTRODUCTION

Intolerance of, Discrimination Against and the Death Penalty for Homosexuals is Prescribed in the Bible!

To make known such a truth is to draw fiery, condemning rhetoric and screams of bigot, hater, radical, neo-nazi, unloving, unchristian, intolerant, etc., from people who are, themselves, intolerant, bigoted and so simple minded that they would condemn and oppose a student giving an accurate book report simply because they do not like the contents of the book that is being reported upon.

Any student of the Holy Scriptures, known as the Bible, can read (and report) the Bible Scriptures that oppose and condemn homosexuality. The wise and honest will not condemn such a student, knowing that the student didn't write the book. The foolish and dishonest will. In the short run, such slanderous tactics may stop the reporting but in the long run it will not. For truth will ultimately prevail, no matter how many truth bearers are stoned.

The truth is, the Bible advocates discrimination against, intolerance of and the death penalty for homosexuals. Read the following Bible Scriptures and then go to your own Bible and look up the passages for yourself.

"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." Leviticus 20:13 KJV

"Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is an abomination." Leviticus 18:22 KJV

"Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor HOMOSEXUALS, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God." I Corinthians 6:9,10 NASV (Emphasis added)

"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them;
For God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are WORTHY OF DEATH, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them." Romans 1:18-32 (KJV Emphasis added)

Is it not apparent that the Bible Scriptures advocate discrimination, intolerance and the DEATH PENALTY concerning homosexuality? Then is not the Title of this writing true? If the very title made you angry, then this author must ask you the same question the Apostle Paul once asked: "Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?" Galatians 4:16 (KJV).

For those who hate the truth, anyone who proclaims it they will also hate and will consider such a one an enemy. They will accuse their enemy of HATE and INTOLERANCE when in fact, it is they who hate and cannot tolerate the truth. For such people no amount of reason, patience or love will make the truth palatable to them unless they first repent.

There are others who may not hate truth but are so far removed or confused concerning it, that when it's heard, it sounds RADICAL and EXTREME. Many in America's Judeo-Christian church world fall in this category. Because such people have been taught that being a radical or extremist is evil, they tend to reject any truth that, to them and their surroundings, seems radical or extreme.

Once this author spoke to a political science class at a University and was billed as a right wing extremist. So the question was asked of the students, "How many Christians are there in the audience?" About half the hands went up. Next it was asked, "How many radicals, extremists or intolerant people are in the audience?" and not one hand was raised. What a contradiction.

All the people who claimed to be followers of Jesus Christ also claimed not to be what He was. Frankly, He was willing to withstand public scorn and ridicule for truth (Matthew 27:40,41), offend people if necessary (Matthew 15:12) and even die for what He believed in. As for tolerance, he would not tolerate such people as the money changers and actually confronted them physically. (John 2:14,15) Obviously, He was a radical and an extremist to the virtuous, so-called Christian in the Jude-Christian churches, it all seems to unchristian.

The truth of the matter is, in one respect, homosexuals are far more virtuous than are the lukewarm, cowardly, goody two shoes, praise the Lord Judeo-Christians. Homosexuals are willing to:

  • Promote their life style
  • Endorse public scorn and rejection if necessary
  • Rally to the aid of another homosexual
  • Fight any who oppose their life style and
  • As we shall see in this writing, are willing to prescribe the death penalty to those who oppose them.
Unlike the modern day, lukewarm Judeo-Christian, they are radicals and extremists. To Jesus they are far more acceptable than the lukewarm Judeo-Christian. "I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I would that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth." Revelation 3:15,16 (NASV)

This writing will be opposed as much by those who call themselves Christians as by homosexuals. They will try to reason or explain away these Bible verses that discriminate against and prescribe the death penalty for homosexuals. So in this writing, their futile objections and explanations will be answered.

The enclosed news article is a good case in point of the lukewarm and un-Biblical manner the Judeo-Christian world is coping with homosexuality. They sign petitions and become part of the effort of Colorado for Family Values but notice what their values are: "These documents mean that homosexuals will continue to enjoy the same basic constitutional rights and protections as any American citizens," he said, reading from a prepared statement.

"They'll have the right to free speech and free assembly. They'll have the right to do business and act politically. They'll have the right to live with whomever they wish. They'll have the right to safety in their property and persons. And they'll have every legal redress for violence against either themselves or their property," he said."
Now the historical record shows, forty years ago, the family values in America would never allow homosexuals to have free speech, free assembly, safety, etc., and thus the homosexual was afraid to come out of the closet. Now lukewarm Judeo- Christians consider it family values to allow them to do so. Such values are not Bible values, for the Bible allows those who continue in the sin of homosexuality, no such rights. (Please understand that it is not wrong for Christians to sign petitions to stop the advancement of homosexuals, but to stop at that point and thus fail to pursue the true Bible values and to condemn those that do is to be lukewarm.)

To the homosexual, it should be said that you've made great gains in promoting your lifestyle. You have and continue to fight courageously. You want to eliminate discrimination and intolerance against homosexuals and have fought hard to eliminate any laws that would discriminate against you. DON'T YOU BECOME LUKEWARM HYPOCRITES LIKE THOSE SO-CALLED CHRISTIANS IN THE CHURCHES.

Go after Bible Law, also. Demand that the Bible be outlawed as hate literature or some such thing. At the very least, demand that these Bible Scriptures that discriminate against you be removed. It shouldn't be that hard. The so-called Christians didn't put up much of a fight when a few black robed individuals demanded the Bible be removed from their schools, so it shouldn't be that hard to remove it entirely or at least those Bible Scriptures that oppose you.

Perhaps you could start off by promoting a law of man that demands all Bible translations be revised to eliminate discrimination, intolerance, and advocation of the death penalty concerning homosexuals. (I'd suggest you start this way and wait to eliminate the entire Bible until later.) Do it in the name of love, peace and harmony. In fact, you could even do it in the name of Christianity using the cross and a passivist, effeminate-looking Jesus on a banner for such a crusade. Maybe you could use a slogan such as, "Jesus loves homosexuals, why don't you?" on the banner and those who opposes you, you can label as haters, radicals, extremists, bigots, etc. It shouldn't be that hard to do. You'll have plenty of help from the liberal media and there are plenty of whoring-type politicians that will fall all over themselves to help you as long as you'll vote for them.

At first, you could do this on a state by state basis. The law could be written in many different ways. Perhaps you could make it so that all Christians or churches have to certify they will use only the revised, non-discriminatory Bibles. Most churches are state incorporated and thus will do what their masters, such as the Secretary of State, tells them. Maybe all churches should register with the Secretary of State certifying all members have the sanitized Bible version. Any church that refuses can then be hauled into court by the state attorney general's office. The judges (who may fear the homosexual crowd more than God or who may be one themselves) will then uphold state imposed fines against that church and the pastor of that church.

Don't worry about the other churches rallying to the cause because they don't want to offend anyone and risk a drop in attendance (bad business you know). Besides, tell them that Romans chapter 13 says they have to obey the authorities.

Later, the law could be expanded to require all Christians to register their Bibles and all unsanitized Bibles be confiscated least one falls into the hands of an extremist and he begins to believe and someone gets hurt.

You homosexuals should think about this project very seriously. You can do it. You've showed more courage and fight than those so-called Christian soldiers who oppose you by trying to strike down pro-homosexual city ordinances that you've worked so hard to get. You really believe in your life style. They don't even believe or promote all the Bible Scriptures concerning homosexuality. You don't see them advocating the death penalty for homosexuality, do you? Then obviously they don't fully believe their Bibles so they won't fight that hard when you demand the revision of their Bibles.

Think about it. For the truth is, unless you take action along these lines, you stand in danger. For someone's liable to start reading and believing the Bible as it now stands. If that happens, then it's all over for you.

INTOLERANCE, DISCRIMINATION and LAW are three words that go together.

In the spring of 1991, I was a guest speaker for a psychology class at Colorado State University during what has been called their "Gay Awareness Week".

During such a week, there is a lot of rhetoric concerning intolerance of and discrimination against homosexuals. I polled the class to see who was in favor of the concept of discrimination and intolerance. No one was in favor of such things. Next, I asked the class how many were in favor of LAW and ORDER and many were. But just as it's impossible for order to exist without law, so is it impossible to have a law without intolerance and discrimination.

Law By Its Very Nature is Intolerant and Discriminatory. For example, suppose one was driving down a city street and entered a school zone area with a flashing light and a sign that said "Speed Limit-20 mph" and parked near the curb is a police car and its driver is using a radar gun. There are two things that are certain. The 20mph law is intolerant and discriminatory. The patrolman WILL NOT TOLERATE you going 30 mph and WILL DISCRIMINATE AGAINST YOU if you go 30 mph, i.e., he will pick you out of all the drivers, pull you over and punish you for violating that law.

Thus, with simple reason, it is easily understood that law, by its very nature, is discriminatory. For most it's simply ignorance to claim to be for law and against intolerance and discrimination.

FOR HOMOSEXUALS IT'S HYPOCRISY for them to say they are against discrimination and intolerance because they actively work to promote laws such as city ordinances that are designed to protect them against discrimination and intolerance. Yet, when one realizes that law, by its very nature, is discriminatory and intolerant, one realizes they are in reality promoting discrimination and intolerance all under their hypocritical guise of being against such.

How tolerant are they of organizations such as the Boy Scouts, who oppose the life style known as homosexuality? Suppose a man or woman's Christian religious convictions forbid them from hiring a homosexual to work for them. With so-called, anti- discrimination, gay rights ordinances, such religiously based actions would not be tolerated and such a person would be punished (or discriminated against) by the very law homosexuals promote in the name of tolerance.

One church in Boulder, Colorado dismissed a choir leader because he or she was a homosexual. As a result, the homosexuals in the area protested mightily. Now, there are homosexual churches in the land that hire preachers to teach from their pulpits.

Suppose a minister who openly preached the Bible Scriptures that proclaim the death penalty for homosexuality applied for a preaching job, or choir director's job, at one of these churches. Do you honestly think he would not be discriminated against? Yes, he would be discriminated against by a crowd who would not tolerate his preaching, a crowd who proclaims to the world they are against discrimination and intolerance.

The truth is, discrimination and intolerance is a way of life. It's just a matter of what we are going to be intolerant of and who we are going to discriminate against.

For example, in 1988 a city ordinance was proposed by the Fort Collins City Council that would have forbidden discrimination against homosexuals in the area of housing and employment. This author and the church he pastors, actively opposed the ordinance and helped, in part, in defeating it. Later in the year, a laundry operator refused to take some dirty clothes of mine that were left at the laundry business to be cleaned. He explained that he did so because I opposed the above mentioned city ordinance and that he was against intolerance and discrimination. He was surprised to find that I did not take offense at such an action. How could I, I had fought for his right to discriminate? When it was explained to him if I had been a homosexual and the city ordinance had passed, he wouldn't have had the right to discriminate against me, it caused him to think. Until that point, it had never occurred to him that his actions were themselves discriminative and intolerant.

Again, the truth of the matter is, it's just a matter of what we are going to be intolerant of and who we are going to discriminate against. For to have order, there must be law and with law comes discrimination and intolerance. We must then determine what is proper discrimination and intolerance.

Determining Proper Discrimination And Intolerance

Obviously, if discrimination and intolerance is inherent in law itself, then to have proper discrimination and intolerance, we must have proper law.

Discrimination and intolerance is prevalent everywhere and in everything about us. Take, for example, the field of physics. As a physicist studies creation in a physics laboratory, he observes how, for instance, a magnet functions. He observes how a magnet discriminates concerning what it will pick up. There are some items it attracts and some it will not and even some it repels such as a similar pull of another magnet. The physicist records the discrimination and intolerance of a magnet and calls it the law of physics.

The chemist in the chemistry lab does likewise. There he observes discrimination and intolerance. He sees cations will bond with anions but not with other cations. He observes how water and oil will not mix and he records all this under the laws of chemistry.

The zoologist also observes discrimination and records the biological law of kind after kind. Sparrows don't mate with robins, one species will not tolerate another in its living domain, etc.

No one calls such discrimination and intolerance in the physics or chemistry lab or the zoology field as improper because it is all just part of existing law known as the law of physics, laws of chemistry and so forth.

But where did this existing law come from? Obviously from the One who created physics, chemistry, zoology and etc. Regardless of how some may believe the creation occurred (evolution, the big bang theory or Bible Creation), few will deny that the present existing laws come from the creator, or God. "For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:" Romans 1:20 KJV

Now, no physics instructor would tell his or her students to go do a lab experiment with magnets only this time ignore the laws of physics or reverse them. No chemistry instructor would do so either least there be the danger of great harm coming to the student in the way of an explosion or deadly fumes, etc. Yet, the universities of our land are full of psychology and sociology instructors who would have their students believe they can ignore the Creators Laws on sexual morality or reverse those laws or make up their own laws and not suffer harm. This is particularly true concerning the subject of homosexuality where young people are lead to believe they can make up their own law, that is, choose their own sexual preference. They are not being told there is the existing Law of their Creator, God that is not to be disobeyed without grave consequences.

So, where do we find that Law? In the Bible. Thus, with it comes proper discrimination and intolerance.

The Bible Must Be Applied and Obeyed in America
According to Public Law 97-280.

By a joint resolution of both houses of the United States Congress, it has been declared that the Bible is THE WORD OF GOD and that we need to apply its teachings. This is in the congressional record known as public law 97-280 approved October 4, 1982. Following is a reprint of it.
PUBLIC LAW 97-280-OCTOBER 4, 1982

Joint Resolution

Authoring and Requesting the President to Proclaim 1983 as the
"Year of the Bible".

"Whereas the Bible, the Word of God, has made a unique contribution in shaping the United States as a distinctive and blessed nation and people;

Wheras deeply held religious convictions springing from the Holy Scriptures led to the early settlement of our Nation;

Whereas Biblical teachings inspired concepts of civil government that are contained in our Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States;

Whereas many of our great national leaders-among them Presidents Washington, Jackson, Lincoln, and Wilson-paid tribute to the surpassing influence of the Bible in our country's development, as in the words of President Jackson that the Bible is "the rock on which our Republic rests";

Whereas the history of our Nation clearly illustrates the value of voluntarily applying the teachings of the Scriptures in the lives of individuals, families, and societies;

Whereas this Nation now faces great challenges that will test this Nation as it has never been tested before; and

Whereas that renewing our knowledge of and faith in God through Holy Scripture can strengthen us as a nation and a people: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the President is authorized and requested to designate 1983 as a national "Year of the Bible" in recognition of both the formative influence the Bible has been for our Nation, and our national need to study and apply the teachings of the Holy Scriptures."

Approved October 4, 1982

Note that it is already law that the Bible is declared to be the Word of God and is to be applied. Now, if the Bible is the Word of God, then the Laws it contains are the Laws of God or are the existing Laws of the Creator. We have already noted how existing Laws of the Creator in other areas bring about proper discrimination and intolerance which no one with wisdom would dare refuse. Then, so it is with the Laws in the Bible on homosexuality.

However, those Laws the homosexuals and their foolish allies will not tolerate and, in rebellion to the Law, they do as the Bible says:

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection,implacable, unmerciful:
Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things ARE WORTHY OF DEATH, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them." Romans 1:21-32 KJV (Emphasis added)
Notice in verse 32 of Romans chapter one it says, "Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things ARE WORTHY OF DEATH..."

We have already seen that the Law of God prescribes the death penalty in Leviticus 20:13.

"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
Some may say such a law is cruel and evil but the Bible says otherwise.
"But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous man, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching." I Timothy 1:8-10 NASV.
Remember, it's already a Law of the land that the Bible is the Word of God and is to be applied.

HOMOSEXUALS WOULD HAVE PEOPLE TO BELIEVE THEY ARE AGAINST THE DEATH PENALTY but in reality they are only against the death penalty for homosexuals. Many of them would have their opponents die.

The following headlines were in a special report from the Family Research Institute.

"GAY LEADER CALLS FOR 'AIDS TERRORIST ARMY' to kill Non-Homosexuals (from the Wall Street Journal) (1) That report gave the details of a Wall Street Journal interview with homosexual leader Larry Kramer who founded ACT UP and has been called Mr. Gay, USA in the interview is quoted as saying,

"It hurts me to say I think the time for violence has now arrived...I'd like to see an AIDS terrorist army, like the Irgun which led the state of Israel." (2)
(History shows the Irgun was one of the first international terrorist bands started in the mid 1930's by Zionists. The Irgun considered its cause so just that the many hundreds of men, women and children killed by it were deemed a necessary price.)

Gay revolutionary Michael Swift has been reported as saying,

"If you dare to cry faggot, fairy, queer at us, we will stab you in your cowardly hearts and defile your dead puny bodies." (Does this sound like tolerance to you?) "We shall raise vast private armies as Mishima did, to defeat you. We shall conquer the world because warriors inspired by and banded together by homosexual love and honor are invincible as were the ancient Greek soldiers...We shall be victorious because we are fueled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed who have been forced to play seemingly bit parts in your dumb, heterosexual shows throughout the ages. We too, are capable of firing guns and manning the barricades of the ultimate revolution. Tremble hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks." (3)
Urrashi Vaid, who has been called a "mainstream" gay leader and has been executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, has also endorsed proposed militant strategies. (4)

Not only has the death penalty been promoted by homosexuals, it is also apparent the death penalty comes with diseases connected to the homosexual life style. Yet, homosexuals do not mind promoting their lifestyle which, in reality, is to promote the death penalty.

Because Leviticus 20:13 is an existing Law of our Creator, the God of the Bible, then it's a fact of life that DEATH will be the judgment for violating that Law. It becomes then just a matter of who and how many are going to die. WE CAN HAVE GOD'S LAW ON HOMOSEXUALS AND THE JUDGMENT OF THE DEATH PENALTY IN AMERICA and when or if we do, far fewer will die.

In the final analysis, there can only be God's Law or man's law. Man's law (or more accurately, man's decree) according to public law 97-280, should be in line with or in accord with God's Law for there to be blessings as a nation of people.

"Whereas the Bible, the Word of God, has made a unique contribution in shaping the United States as a distinctive and BLESSED nation and people". (Emphasis added) (5)
History shows that the early settlements had the death penalty for transgression of the Law concerning homosexuality. For example, the following was in the General Court of Connecticut 1650:
"By the General Court-Code of laws, established within the Jurisdiction of Connecticut-1650...If any man lies with mankind as he lies with women, both of them have committed abomination, they both shall surely be put to death. Leviticus 20:13." (6)
History shows we were blessed as a nation and there was little homosexuality and all the ills, heartaches and deaths that accompany it.

According to article entitled, Arguments Against Gay Rights Legislation, twenty five states now have or have had CRIMINAL SODOMY LAWS. (7) Now, if states already have CRIMINAL SODOMY LAWS and if once in America, our forefathers enforced God's Law on homosexuality and since public law 97280 endorses God's Law and basically tells us and allows us to do likewise, then we, today, can and should have God's Law concerning Homosexuality (and its judgment of the death penalty). All it would take is Christians with half the guts and zeal the homosexuals have in spreading their life style, to start, state by state, (as the homosexuals have done) in getting such legislated.

LAW IS NOT LAW UNLESS THE JUDGMENTS ARE APPLIED.

Let's go back to the scenario of the school speed zone and its 20 MPH speed limit law. If one goes through the zone at 30 MPH and is never stopped, never ticketed and never fined, i.e., punished, then essentially the 20 MPH speed limit law is worthless. Likewise, for the Judeo-Christian crowd to say they are against homosexuality because Bible Law is against it and yet refuse to advocate the judgment for violation of that law, is to consider and render that Bible Law as worthless. In other words, their argument against homosexuality rests upon something they have deemed as worthless and consequently all their arguments and feeble resistance (including trying to resend the gains rightfully made by the homosexuals) are worthless. At best, all they can do is fight on the defense and never do they go on the offense to stop and eradicate a lawless behavior.

The fact that the death penalty exists among us in the form of disease, serial murders, childless and grandchildless families (which brings the death of a family name or lineage) due to homosexuality, shows that Leviticus 20:13 is a Law. It's just a matter of who and how many are going to die. For as the Scripture says,

"Be not deceived, God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap". Galatians 6:7 KJV
As a nation, people will reap the judgments of violating His existing proper Law with its accompanying proper intolerance and discrimination. After all, the Bible says not only is the homosexual worthy of the death penalty, but also those who give approval to it.
"and, although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them." Romans 1:32 NASV.
The fact that as a people we have opted to follow His existing Law in other areas is further testimony to the fact that we as a society can do likewise with homosexuality. We have, for instance, instituted the death penalty for first degree murder and for kidnapping which is in accordance with God's Law.
"But if a man come presumptuously upon his neighbor to slay him with guile; thou shalt take him from mine alter, that he may die." Exodus 21:14 KJV.

"and that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death." Exodus 21:16 KJV.

Though the homosexual would have society believe otherwise of his perverted lifestyle, the Bible, interestingly enough, categorizes him with the murderer and kidnapper. (See I Corinthians 6:9,10 and I Timothy 1:8-10)

History shows that prior to the kidnapping of the Charles Lindberg baby, kidnapping was a very prevalent, real threat to the wealthy. After the death penalty for kidnapping was instituted, however, that crime dried up in a hurry. The same would be true concerning the crime i.e., the breaking of God's Law dealing with homosexuality.


Return to Table of Contents.

CRIME, GOVERNMENT AND REVIVAL

We have seen how homosexuality is a violation of God's Law as it's revealed in the Bible. In I John 3:4 (KJV), we read that sin is a violation of Law.
"Whosoever commiteth sin transgresseth also the law for sin is the transgression of the law."
In light of the definition of sin, another word that could be used for sin is crime. For example, according to the Bible, kidnapping and/or murder is a "sin" but governmentally, we generally refer to it as a "crime". Now, regardless of whether judges, legislators or politicians decide to decree that such is not a crime or that such is allowed by a constitution or by freedom of choice, or whatever man can dream up, it is still a violation of the LAW OF GOD which is a sin or a crime.

The Bible (which public law 97-280 says we are to apply) shows the role of government is to punish criminals, referred to in Romans 13 as those who do evil.

"For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same; for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath upon the one who practices evil." Romans 13:3,4 NASV.
In other words, proper Godly government is intolerant of evil doers (i.e., criminals or sinners) and properly discriminates against the same by upholding and enforcing the Creator God's already existing Law. This is the role of government and when the people of the land repent, they demand that just that be done, revival takes place and consequently a healing of the land.
"and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." II Chronicles 7:14 NASV.
Such a revival and a healing of the land will never come so long as we allow politicians to court and/or fear the homosexual votes, or judges to rule against God. Or, as long as the people remain apathetic to the lies that homosexuals have a right to choose their own life style or, what two people do in the privacy of their own home is of no concern or, as long as so-called Christians refuse to demand the enforcement of their God's Law.

ANSWERING THE OBJECTIONS
TO THE ENFORCEMENT OF GOD'S LAW ON HOMOSEXUALITY

(The objections are not in any particular order.)

1) Jesus Never Condemned Homosexuality.

It could just as well be said that Jesus never specifically condemned kidnapping or beastiality but most would not be so foolish or dishonest as to say He does not condemn such acts. Jesus endorsed the "Law" when He said "Think not that I come to destroy the law or the prophets: I have not come to destroy, but to fulfill." Matthew 5:17 KJV. Nowhere or at any time did He condemn the Law of God, but rather upheld it. In the process He then upheld the death penalty. He did condemn the laws of the Pharisees that made the Law of God of no effect (Matthew 15:6) just as people do today.
2) Jesus Advocated Love Not Hate.
This is said in such a way as to accuse those who want God's Law enforced in society as being haters and without love. The greatest commandment is: "...Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind." Matthew 22:37 KJV. Jesus Christ is our great God and Savior (John 20:28, John 1:1,14). He gave us His definition of love: "If you love me, keep my commandments." John 14:15 KJV. Thus, for a people to keep the commandment of Leviticus 20:13, is to love their God.
3) Judge Not.
This bit of Scripture, normally flaunted by those who do not even claim Scripture, has authority and yet they try to use it to condemn those who advocate the Laws of Scripture. Judging is a whole other study but suffice it to say, Jesus also commanded His followers to judge. "...judge righteous judgment." John 7:24 NASV. If judging is so wrong, why do we allow criminals such as murderers or kidnappers to be judged?
4) The Law is No Longer in Effect in Christianity. It Was Unrighteous and Against Us and Has Been Replaced with Love and Grace.
This argument mistakes the old Law Covenant made with ancient Israel at Mount Sinai with its many rituals and animal sacrifices. For the Laws, Statutes and Judgments of God which existed even before then (Genesis 26:5) still exist today. That Law with its statutes and judgments the Bible calls righteous (Deuteronomy 4:8) and is what the Christian Scriptures teach is good for use in such crimes as murder, kidnapping, homosexuality, etc. "But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous man, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and for sinners for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching." I Timothy 8-10 NASV. Remember Jesus said His followers were not to think He came to abolish it (Matthew 5:17). (For more information on this subject, we recommend our 6 part cassette tape series entitled, The Law for an $18.00 offering. Order)
5) What People Do In The Privacy Of Their Own Home Is Their Business.
If this is true, then why does society have laws concerning gambling in homes, or prostitution services being performed in homes? God's Law on homosexuality said nothing of whether it was done privately in a home or publicly on a park bench.
6) This Is America And You Have The Freedom To Choose An Alternate Life Style Known As Homosexuality.
Our forefathers did not fight and die in 1776 for anyone's right to practice homosexuality least why would they have upheld criminal sodomy laws and why would even today 25 states have criminal sodomy laws? Certainly Jesus did not die so as to give one the freedom to be a homosexual anymore than He died to give one the freedom to be a murderer. "Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God." I Corinthians 6:9,10 NASV
7) We Cannot Legislate Morality.
All legislation is of a moral or immoral nature. Law, by its very nature, pertains to morality. It's just a matter of who's morality we are going to enforce or legislate, God's or man's?
8) Homosexuals Can't Help Themselves. They Are Born That Way.
They Are A Poor, Misunderstood And Persecuted People, Etc., Etc.
So man categorizes them, but the Bible says they are a people with a reprobate mind worthy of death. "And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a REPROBATE MIND, to do those things which are not convenient; being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are WORTHY OF DEATH, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them." Romans 1:27-32 KJV (Emphasis added)
Concerning reprobate minds, consider the following report.
"New Jersey: The six leading serial killers in the U.S. are: Donald Harvey (37 victims), John Wayne Gacy (23 victims), Patrick Kearney (32 victims), Bruce Davis (28 victims), Corli-Henley- Brooks (27 victims), & Juan Corona (25 victims). The NY Times quotes detectives as saying all were "motivated by a sense of shame after having (homo) sexual relations with their victims." (8)
Regardless of what causes people to choose this life style, applied Bible Law will stop it and cure it once and for all. 9) The Bible Teaches Homosexuals Can Come To The Saving Grace Of Christ.
This is true according to I Corinthians 6:11 (NASV). "And such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God." However, the record seems to indicate that once people get deep into the sexual perversion of homosexuality, few ever choose to repent and turn back from it. Regardless, this still does not mean society cannot institute the death penalty for this crime just as it has for the crime of murder. No one says a murderer cannot repent and come to Christ nor does society allow such a conversion to stop the death penalty from being carried out.

(Concerning homosexuality, once society puts into force God's Law and judgment concerning this crime, it would be from that moment forward that it would apply. It could be dealt with as Ex Post Facto Law and still there would be a trail and evidence just as the Law of God requires.)

CONCLUSION

Because Leviticus 20:13 is the existing Law of our Creator God, there is the judgment of DEATH. If we as a society refuse to repent and acquire righteous government to punish this crime with the death penalty, then even more will die. For this author not to so warn or so state would be for me, in principle, to fall under the condemnation of Ezekiel 3:17-21 (NASV).
"Son of man, I have appointed you a watchman to the house of Israel; whenever you hear a word from My mouth, warn them from Me. When I say to the wicked, 'You shall surely die'; and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. Yet if you have warned the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered yourself. Again, when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and I place an obstacle before him, he shall die; since you have not warned him, he shall die in his sin, and his righteous deeds which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood I will require at your hand. However, if you have warned the righteous man that the righteous should not sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live because he took warning; and you have delivered yourself."
Homosexuals will continue to spread their form of death and will continue to recruit the people's sons and daughters and threaten and carry out their threats against any who oppose them. Consider the writings of their own prophets.

Homosexual Activist Outlines Goals Of Homosexual Movement
by Michael Swift, "Gay Revolutionary"
(from the Gay Community News, Feb. 15-21, 1987, reprinted from The Congressional Record)
"We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all male clubs, in your houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together. Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us.

Women, you cry for freedom. You say you are no longer satisfied with men; they make you unhappy. We, connoisseurs of the masculine face, the masculine physique, shall take your men from you then. We will amuse them; we will instruct them; we will embrace them when they weep. Women, you say you wish to live with each other instead of with men. Then go and be with each other. We shall give your men pleasures they have never known because we are foremost men too, and only one man knows how to truly please another man; only one man can understand the depth and feeling, the mind and body of another man.

All laws banning homosexual activity will be revoked. Instead, legislation shall be passed which engenders love between men.

All homosexuals must stand together as brothers; we must be united artistically, philosophically, socially, politically and financially. We will triumph only when we present a common face to the vicious heterosexual enemy.

If you dare to cry faggot, fairy, queer, at us, we will stab you in your cowardly hearts and defile your dead, puny bodies.

We shall write poems of the love between men; we shall stage plays in which man openly caresses man; we shall make films about the love between heroic men which will replace the cheap, superficial, sentimental, insipid, juvenile, heterosexual infatuations presently dominating your cinema screens. We shall sculpt statues of beautiful young men, of bold athletes which will be placed in your parks, your squares, your plazas. The museums of the world will be filled only with paintings of graceful, naked lads.

Our writers and artists will make love between men fashionable and de rigueur, and we will succeed because we are adept at setting styles. We will eliminate heterosexual liaisons through usage of the devices of wit and ridicule, devices which we are skilled in employing.

We will unmask the powerful homosexuals who masquerade as heterosexuals. You will be shocked and frightened when you find that your presidents and their sons, your industrialists, your senators, your mayors, your generals, your athletes, your film stars, your television personalities, your civic leaders, your priests are not the safe, familiar, bourgeois, heterosexual figures you assumed them to be. We are everywhere; we have infiltrated your ranks. Be careful when you speak of homosexuals because we are always among you; we may be sitting across the desk from you; we may be sleeping in the same bed with you.

There will be no compromises. We are not middle-class weaklings. Highly intelligent, we are the natural aristocrats of the human race, and steely-minded aristocrats never settle for less. Those who oppose us will be exiled.

We shall raise vast private armies, as Mishima did, to defeat you. We shall conquer the world because warriors inspired by and banded together by homosexual love and honor are invincible as were the ancient Greek soldiers.

The family unit-spawning ground of lies, betrayals, mediocrity, hypocrisy and violence--will be abolished. The family unit, which only dampens imagination and curbs free will, must be eliminated. Perfect boys will be conceived and grown in the genetic laboratory. They will be bonded together in communal setting, under the control and instruction of homosexual savants.

All churches who condemn us will be closed. Our only gods are handsome young men. We adhere to a cult of beauty, moral and esthetic. All that is ugly and vulgar and banal will be annihilated. Since we are alienated from middle-class heterosexual conventions, we are free to live our lives according to the dictates of the pure imagination. For us too much is not enough.

The exquisite society to emerge will be governed by an elite comprised of gay poets. One of the major requirements for a position of power in the new society of homoeroticism will be indulgence in the Greek passion. Any man contaminated with heterosexual lust will be automatically barred from a position of influence. All males who insist on remaining stupidly heterosexual will be tried in homosexual courts of justice and will become invisible men.

We shall rewrite history, history filled and debased with your heterosexual lies and distortions. We shall portray the homosexuality of the great leaders and thinkers who have shaped the world. We will demonstrate that homosexuality and intelligence and imagination are inextricably linked, and that homosexuality is a requirement for true nobility, true beauty in a man.

We shall be victorious because we are fueled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed who have been forced to play seemingly bit parts in your dumb, heterosexual shows throughout the ages. We too are capable of firing guns and manning the barricades of the ultimate revolution.

Tremble, hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks."

History shows, however, that it is just a matter of time before courageous men rise up and do what unrighteous government refuses to do. (Judges 20, I Samuel 15:33, Numbers 25:4-11 are just a few Bible historical accounts that attest to this fact.)

There will be far less death and suffering if society simply enforces Sodomy Criminal laws in every state in the union in accordance with His righteous, existing Law. The facts of this writing show it can and should be done. Pray Christians take the initiative and do so least a worst judgment of death befalls us as a nation.
