The Boy Scouts cave
The saddest part of this situation is that we have a group of people who are evangelistic for their cause – more evangelistic than many true believers. The change they want to affect on our country is based on the idea that they have the right to claim minority status based on who they put their private parts on.
I could be wrong, but it just does not seem to make any sense that immorality should be given an equal rights status in our nation. To some this might seem harsh. I realize I am extending no mercy or sensitivity to this group. But that being said, when it comes to protecting our children, we need to fight to the death if necessary, figuratively speaking. I am not advocating killing anyone.
Since when has there ever been a need to inflict upon our kids the added life pressure of inordinate sexuality. Just being a normal teen is difficult enough. We are so quick to put this burden on them not realizing that they are neither mature enough socially, physically, emotionally, or spiritually for any sexual encounter of any kind.
Is there anyone who has enough common sense to ask the simple question, “Is our society any better now for all of this “sexual freedom?” I realize that the “Leave it to Beaver” generation is long gone, but Mother Macree! Is there a modicum of modesty anywhere left in this country?

The sad part of all of these statistics is that they are old.
Another statistic states that in 2013, 72 Percent of African-American Children were Born to Unwed Mothers. Even if this statistic is off by 22 percent, this is still way too high. The world is one screwed up place. Families are at their most dysfunctional place in the history of our country. Now we want to introduce into this already confusing mess the thought that homosexuality is just another perfectly acceptable lifestyle for consenting adults, and that we should hoist this upon our already sexually frustrated teens and preteens.
What I find most amazing is that this politically charged society in which we live in has such little common sense that they cannot see the very destruction they are creating, all in the name of tolerance.
I remember in 2006 it was reported in the news that a child of the age of 6 was being accused of sexual harassment because he grabbed one of his little classmates at her waist band.
6-Year-Old Accused of Sexual Harassment; Boy Accused of Putting Fingers in Girl's Waistband; February 8 2006. Officials told her [the mother] that her son was being suspended for sexually harassing a 6-year-old female classmate. [The mother] said the boy is just 6 and has no idea what sexual harassment means. [She] said the children were playing on the floor and touching each other. She said her son touched the girl's shirt, but not her skin. The school superintendent released a statement that said, "The safety and well-being of Brockton public school students and staff is of the utmost important to us, and we take all allegations of sexual harassment seriously."
We must, as a society, protect our children from the 6-year old sex offenders. Do you hear me!
Yeah, but what about those homosexual Boy Scout leaders? Am I missing something here or am I just a prude or maybe stupid? We are paranoid to the point where we think that we must protect our 6-year-old children from another 6-year-old “sexual predator,” but we will introduce them, in the classroom, to a form of inordinate sexual behavior. Then in high school we will let them have a GBLT club that celebrates diversity in sexuality.
The sheer audacity of it all! These messages are in total opposition, (protect) (be tolerant). This is maddening when you come to realize there are people out there that spend their life spreading this lie with passion. What is even more maddening is that society believes them.
They are not satisfied to just practice their debauchery among themselves in private, now they want to make everyone, including the Lord, accept them. Homosexuals have infiltrated and redefined marriage, the military, school programs, television, movies, civil rights, The “Church” and on and on; we feel their influence everywhere in modern society. Don’t tell me they are not evangelistic for their sin. So today the Boy Scouts are at the brink of a decision. Will they protect these boys from the real threat or just be tolerant?
I just don’t get the insanity of it all. Another thing I don’t understand is the “Churches’” refusal to stand for the Word of the Lord. I am not advocating hate. I don’t hate these people. They are as needy as any one else who is lost in their sin. I am just not advocating that we abdicate our responsibility to the Lord and His standard. I do, however, know what the Scripture says, and I can’t just sit idly by waiting for someone else to do something.
26For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
Rom 1 articulates the problem.
9Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. 10Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; 11not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; 12rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, 13contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality.
However, we are to be steadfast in the truth and what is good.
17You have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet you say, “How have we wearied Him?” In that you say, “Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and He delights in them,” or, “Where is the God of justice?”
20 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!
We are to have discernment and know what is the standard of the Lord. We are not to establish our own standard as a substitute.
14 Seek good and not evil, that you may live;
And thus may the LORD God of hosts be with you,
Just as you have said!
We are to make sure we actively pursue His good in our own lives.
15 Hate evil, love good,
And establish justice in the gate!
Perhaps the LORD God of hosts
May be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.
We are not to be passive in reference to evil. We are to oppose it.
31“Then you will remember your evil ways and your deeds that were not good, and you will loathe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and your abominations.
When we do evil before the Lord, we are to actively and passionately repent.
13The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person. 14For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil.
In the end the Lord will sort it all out according to His standard and everyone will be held accountable.
The Lord will not be mocked. If we think that this country will not be judged for allowing this to happen, then we have another thing coming to us.
20Then He began to denounce the cities in which most of His miracles were done, because they did not repent. 21“Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles had occurred in Tyre and Sidon which occurred in you, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22“Nevertheless I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you. 23“And you, Capernaum, will not be exalted to heaven, will you? You will descend to Hades; for if the miracles had occurred in Sodom which occurred in you, it would have remained to this day. 24“Nevertheless I say to you that it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for you.”
The Lord has extended his hand of grace and favor on this country for many years. We have reaped the benefit of prosperity and influence. But as we continue down this slippery slope, no longer will we be able to ask for God to bless America because we refuse to bless and honor Him.
