We’ve had a week of “dialogue” with some GLBT proponents and activists over at DE, and in their blog, too (which is identified at DE, I’m not going to do it here). At first it just just a matter of anger and resentment against the Church, but it’s deteriorating into a presentation of gay revisionist theory. I feel incredibly frustrated; what people want to believe, they’ll believe no matter how ridiculous or implausible it is.
I encountered this in a small way via my ex-husband, and thought it would never be taken seriously. They even have a “translation” of the Bible which is very gay-friendly. One of the editors came to the Metropolitan Community Church in Greensboro for some sort of conference, spent the night at Dan’s – left a thank you note saying “Thanks for sharing your bed.” Dan and our daughters thought it was hysterically funny; I did not; you can guess how well my inability to appreciate the “fun” went over.
I also knew that the GLBT community is taking everyone they can and turning them into gays or lesbians: Katherine C. Hulm and the heroine of her novel The Nun’s Story were supposed to be lesbian lovers. Eleanor Franklin was supposed to be a lesbian, as were Emily Dickinson, Florence Nightingale, et al.
It’s obscene in its dishonesty, its manipulations of fact – e.g. Christianity derives its ethics from Judaism, not from Roman Culture, which was at least as licentious as Greek, if not more so… etc.
I don’t know how to fight this. They WANT to believe the lie.
So Muir’s cartoon du jour is very apt, I think. If you don’t keep up with Day by Day, you might want to.
