Biblical Message Criminalized

Christians have been warning about the ultimate intent of the radical homosexual agenda for years!

Was it really about equal rights?


Was it really about freedom to act out sexually in the privacy of their own homes?


Was it really about tolerance, acceptance and non-discrimination?


Was it really about protecting homosexual people from harm?


Was it really About Manipulation?


What is their ultimate endgame?


Think it won't happen here in the United States?

Think again! It's already happening in Colorado!

Biblical message now criminalized
Penalties created for those who criticize homosexuality outside church walls


A new Colorado law is helping homosexual activists achieve their goal of forcing Christians to teach biblical condemnation of homosexuality only behind the closed doors of their sanctuaries.

The as-yet untested state law promotes sexual identity "perception" to the level of skin color under state discrimination laws.

Some opponents are calling it a "bona fide censorship law," and top analysts for Focus on the Family, the Christian publishing and broadcast powerhouse, are expressing concern over the "mischief" they expect to follow the signing by Gov. Bill Ritter.

The bill presents new law regarding the use of restrooms. You can read that part at the link. However, this is the part that concerns all Bible believing Christians:

Pastor Bob Enyart, a Denver-area activist on Christian issues, agreed with Focus' concerns over what appears to be a newly minted state discrimination against Christian beliefs. But he went further.

"WND reported on Canada banning opposition to homosexuality; likewise, Colorado's SB200 has 'forbidden' much publishing of Christian teaching on homosexuality, cohabitation, etc.," he said.

"This censorship aspect of the law has been utterly ignored," he said.

"The law exempts churches, but that's not good, that's an insult. I.E., bigotry is allowed only in churches. Whereas every other place of public accommodation including bookstores, retail & wholesale businesses, etc. cannot sell or even 'give away' anything that would advocate discrimination [against] gay adoption, homosexual marriage, etc.," Enyart said.

He cited one part of the new law:

Section 8. 24-34-701. Publishing of discriminative matter forbidden. No person, being the owner, lessee, proprietor, manager, superintendent, agent, or employee of any place of public accommodation... shall publish, issue, circulate, send, distribute, give away, or display in any way, manner, or shape or by any means or method, except as provided in this section, any communication, paper, poster, folder, manuscript, book, pamphlet, writing, print, letter, notice, or advertisement of any kind, nature, or description THAT is intended or calculated to discriminate or actually discriminates against... SEXUAL ORIENTATION, marital status... in the matter of furnishing or neglecting or refusing to furnish to them or any one of them any lodging, housing, schooling, or tuition or any accommodation, right [marriage], privilege [adoption], advantage, or convenience... on account of... SEXUAL ORIENTATION, marital status... [which] is unwelcome or objectionable or not acceptable, desired, or solicited."

The Old Testament condemns homosexuality as an "abomination," Enyart told WND. The New Testament includes a reference in 1st Timothy calling for the use of laws against crimes such as murder and homosexuality.

"There are free speech rights to condemn cohabitation, homosexuality, state that homosexuals should not marry, should not adopt children," Enyart said. "It's now illegal in Colorado for anyone involved in a facility or business of public accommodation to give any communication that would advocate discrimination based on marital status or sexual orientation."

He said many people simply choose not to believe what's happening.

"I have a hard time believing [it myself]," said Enyart.

He said he expects the law to be only "lightly" enforced until "it just becomes an entrenched part of our legal framework. They're not going to go out and arrest somebody for selling a Bible at Barnes and Noble."
But then in a few years, watch out, he said.

Enyart has printed a document he hands out that says, "This Anti-homosexual Flyer is Illegal in Colorado." It condemns the promotion of homosexuality in no uncertain terms.

"Homosexuality should be re-criminalized in Colorado," it states.

HT: WorldNetDaily

[Note: Personally, I do not agree with Pastor Enyart's opinion that "homosexuality should be re-criminalized." However, he SHOULD have the RIGHT to freely give out materials in the public square that express his opinions about it. This is only fair when considering that homosexual activists have the right to march in street "pride" parades and state their own beliefs that homosexual behavior is "normal."

One thing that I would like to see is homosexual behavior advocacy and indoctrination in public schools halted. Children can be taught not to bully without all the hoopla that GLSEN and other homosexual activist groups use for the not-so-subtle intent to indoctrinate the minds of students!!]

Dear Christine—

Until there is no more breath in my body, I will testify Jesus Christ delivered me from more than 20 years of homosexual behavior and identity.

He used one willing vessel. My mentor was willing to be His instrument of grace. This woman loved me by the power of God. Love never fails (1CO 13:8).

Only the grace of God will allow us to hear testimonies from those who have been delivered from adultery and fornication. Only by God’s grace will we hear testimony from those who have been delivered from sexual sin.

My prayer this day is for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. Much love to you and your beautiful family. (ss)

Dear Susan,

Your message of deliverance through the power of Jesus Christ is desperatedly needed today! I have had discussions with many people, of all ages, who are under the deceptive belief that change is not possible! When I share the testimonies of you and Stephen, and Dean Greer and others with them, they are amazed.

Silencing the Gospel message is the goal of gay groups such as the one in Colorado. We MUST speak up against this while we still can!

Susan, I have written and shared links on two subjects that I was not originally intending on writing about today. They were "the bad news."

The next one includes the Good News of Jesus Christ - seen and to be shared through my eyes, ears and mind at the first "The Truth Project" session.

No matter what Satan may throw at us:

1Jo 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

God bless you and thank you for sharing your testimony when it is needed the most!

Love in Him,

P.S. Thanks for your prayers and the Scripture verses this morning!

What a blessing to have a “little” sister by the Blood of Jesus who understands so well.

Have a wonderful weekend and Shabbat Shalom. (ss)
