Why I Cannot Blame
Russia and India for
Taking on the Gays

American Thinker, by Robert Oscar Lopez

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 12/22/2013 8:09:29 AM

Russia remains stalwart in its laws that aim to curb the influence of the West´s gay-friendly culture on Russian youth. Meanwhile, last week, in a stunning turn of events, India´s high court reinstituted a nineteenth-century law against sodomy. On cue, the ligbitist kibitzers are going crazy in such homophile haunts as the New Yorker and the Guardian, expressing total outrage that there should exist, anywhere on the globe, nations that do not think it´s normal or appropriate to subsidize and celebrate men sodomizing boys. I cannot blame Russia, India, or any nation for reacting to what they see in the West

oh my. this is going to stir up some shite. I´m amazed at his honesty and candor and appalled at his experiences. GOD loves us all, but HE despises that which we do to our fellow man. Most of all HE despises what we do to the children. And HE will not be mocked...

God´s Word tells us that there is a way that seems right to man, but leads to death. More vociferous proclamation of the "gay" lie will not make it become truth. Phil was correct (he was quoting scripture after all). Homosexual behavior is a sin; likewise adultery, fornication, and all the others. We will never change that.
Acceptance of the fundamental lie has opened floodgates of sexual perversion, and innocent children are being destroyed by the deluge. May God have mercy upon them.

The truth of "gay culture" finally laid bare for all to see. The denizens of two repressive societies, Russia and India looks as if they may be the undoing of all of "gay progress" since Stonehouse.

Norman Rockwell is alive and living in middle American culture, in spite of what homosexual activists would have us believe.

This article spells out in graphic truth all that is ugly with so-called "gay culture."

Love the sinner but hate the sin? This article will make that biblical truth all the more difficult. I will find it hard in my heart to love a sinner who will exploit young boys to the extent described here.

The gay´s are winning. Politically they stopped the presses from talking about the AIDS problem being a homosexual issue. No one was allowed to tell anyone else that someone had HIV or AIDS. Now we have a bigger problem because it is spreading through drug use, etc. and people with AIDS are still having sex and spreading it to others. This article is a real eyeopener as to what is going on in the gay community. As he says, it is a sick culture! I don´t´ blame Russia and India; they have enough problems as it is.

In India, this is what happened (I was there when the supreme court judgement happened and the reaction was mostly against the court ruling; read in depth coverage at http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/homosexuality-a-crime-again/specialcoverage/27236316.cms).

In the 19th century, Brits placed a rule in the books criminalizing ´unnatural sexual acts´. It remained as nobody gave much thought to it. Mostly it was unenforced. However police found it a convenient tool to harass people. So finally someone took it to court and a few years ago, Delhi high court ruled it as unconstitutional.

This prompted some religious groups among others to appeal to the supreme court and the 2 justice panel said that it was up to the legislature to change the law.

Sonia Gandhi, leader of the ruling Congress party has said she will look into correcting the law in the parliament but nobody knows when that will happen, given the elections coming up. The other option is to appeal to the full supreme court bench.

Apart from some muslim groups (read articles at the link above, e.g.. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/ Bareilly-cleric-issues-fatwa-against-homosexuality-live-in-relationships/articleshow/27666252.cms), reaction has been nearly universally against the supreme court ruling.

This isn´t "nuturing," it´s predation and the intentional degradation and molestation of young, innocent boys. They weren´t "born that way." This is a great article, telling the truth of homosexual predation upon young boys. I´m sure the muslim world knows all about it, as well.

Another country, Uganda, just passed a law mandating severe punishment for homosexual behavior. It had been in the works for several years (originally carried the death penalty, but that was modified to imprisonment) and Western activists had been working hard to defeat it. It had become a cause celebre in the Episcopal Church but all for naught. This law is also POPULAR in Uganda, as it is in the other countries finally refusing to tamely follow along the latest sick craze in the West.

I read something last night online at Catholic Answers:

We should instead focus our conversations around the question, “What is sex for?” This moves the conversation away from the issue of being bigoted against self-identified gay people and towards the more universal issue of which sex acts are moral and which are not. I recommend J. Budziszewski’s On the Meaning of Sex to learn more about that approach.

And - from the same article, a quote from the Catechism:

The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God´s will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord´s Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.

My brother had a client who was gay, but celibate. He had not always been so. "Joe" told my brother of the years he had been obsessed with gay sex, of multiple partners, of the daily search for new couplings. He described the gay life as a "sickness of the soul." Joe said that his community did not have an "alternate lifestyle," but an insatiable appetite that it publicly denied, but privately understood to be the focus of their existence. Lunch hour at the office was an opportunity to prowl the public restrooms at the park. "Parties" were nothing but orgies of anonymous males gathering for a single purpose. Before he died, Joe told my brother that society does gays no favor by protecting and indulging such behavior, as society has no idea what it is actually promoting. He said that the sanitized version of gay life leading to happy single-sex marriages is misleading and naive. I wonder if he was right.

#16 -- see #17. It´s a pronounceable (sort-of) version of "LGBT-ist" -- a term that we´re likely to see more of before it finally fades away.

Although one wonders how "LGBTGQ-ist" would be pronounced: "ligbitgikist"?

Notice that when numerous Catholic Priests and others in the recent past have been busted for sexually assaulting minors, usually young boys, that the gay activists always refer to the perpetrators as being pedophiles never admitting to the confused general public that those perpetrators were also 100% gay men With the true facts being that those perpetrators were both gay men and pedophiles. As pedophiles in that respect are just a subset of the total gay male population group.

I like the Old Testament punishment for homos (Leviticus 20:13)- death. If you´ve got a passionate urge to engage in homo acts, then become a celibate and tell no one. "Passion" is hormonal in nature, and as one gains in age, they decline in hormones. Eventually, the issue isn´t urgent. And yes, it´s the dream of every male homo to "induct" a young male into the world of despicable degeneracy.

Normal people realize that we are not animals. While we cannot control our desires, we certainly can control our actions!!!

Sadly, homosexuals are not normal people. They have no desire to control their actions, and want the normal people of this world to have to accept and celebrate their abnormal, perverse choices.

The American public has woken up to the folly of trying to end racial discrimination by practicing it, dooming affirmative action to a slow death, and the racialist left is not taking the news very well. That is the only conclusion to draw from the extraordinary dissenting opinion yesterday by Justice Sonia Sotomayor in Schuette v BAMN, the case in which the Court upheld Michigan’s law outlawing racial preferences in state-funded higher education. Sotomayor took the unusual step of reading the dissent aloud from the bench, indicating her vehemence. Justice Sotomayor’s dissent was actually longer than all the other opinions in

CNN reporter Jeanne Moos sparked outrage in New Zealand and Australia for her coverage of the visit of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge to New Zealand, for mocking the dress and customs of the Maori people who greeted the royals. It is almost inconceivable that a CNN reporter would mock the traditions of Native Americans, blacks, or other domestic minorities (and that editors would air such a report), but take them outside of their zone of PC awareness, and the inherent attitudes disguised at home come shining through.

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626.

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey.
