Religious Left Lobbies for Gay, Transsexual Causes on Capitol Hill

Harry Knox, Director of the Religion and Faith Program at the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, and a member of President Barack Obama’s newly convened council on Faith Based Initiatives and Neighborhood Partnerships, speaks at a Capitol Hill press conference on Tuesday with Religious Left, gay and transsexual clergy.

IRD -- Activists ranging from a transsexual United Methodist minister to high-profile Evangelical pastor Tony Campolo descended upon Capitol Hill May 5th for an afternoon of lobbying in favor of a homosexual and transsexual legislative agenda. Organized by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), America’s largest gay rights group, the lobbying day was part of HRC’s second “Clergy Call” event. “Justice is love translated into social policy,” Campolo told the assembled group. “This [legislation] is a chance to practice that love.” The ordained Baptist pastor said that clergy could say what they wanted “as long as it does not promote violence. We Evangelicals who have such a high view of scripture should want justice for gays, lesbians and transgendered persons,” Campolo said.

(It's still legal - and always God-honoring - to air messages like the following. See Ezekiel 3:18-19. In light of government backing of raunchy behavior (such offenders were even executed in early America!), maybe the separation we really need is the "separation of raunch and state"!)

In Luke 17 in the New Testament, Jesus said that one of the big "signs" that will happen shortly before His return to earth as Judge will be a repeat of the "days of Lot" (see Genesis 19 for details). So gays are actually helping to fulfill this same worldwide "sign" (and making the Bible even more believable!) and thus hurrying up the return of the Judge! They are accomplishing what many preachers haven't accomplished! Gays couldn't have accomplished this by just coming out of closets into bedrooms. Instead, they invented new architecture - you know, closets opening on to Main Streets where little kids would be able to watch naked men having sex with each other at festivals in places like San Francisco (where their underground saint - San Andreas - may soon get a big jolt out of what's going on over his head!). Thanks, gays, for figuring out how to bring back our resurrected Saviour even quicker!
