There is an ongoing discussion regarding the topic of discrimination in the comment section of my previous post. You may want to read through them.
When it comes to this particular subject matter, those who want to push the radical homosexual agenda on people simply think that tolerance is a one way street. Their intolerance towards those who hold to Biblical teachings, strong religious beliefs, personal rights, and free speech rights do not exist in their push to not only normalize homosexual behavior, same-sex marriage, and the teaching of homosexuality to kids as young as 6 years old in public schools; but they also use the term to purposely target and attack Christians.
I think that it is because they want to criminalize Christianity. It's at the point where they don't even try to hide their true intentions anymore! The evidence of their goal to criminalize the practice of the Christian faith is all over the place these days!
As was mentioned in my previous post, the truth is that the gay manifesto's goal is to establish a sodomite despotism.
It is an underlying goal and part of the nebulously entitled "coexist" movement. Have you seen these bumper stickers on cars where you live? They are a familiar sight here in California. Saw one on a car on the freeway yesterday - it was plastered on the bumper right next to the Obama "2012' sticker. You know - the one with "O" filled in with the commie artwork.
I have previously written about this "coexist" mantra in past posts.
Excerpts below from my former post on the subject "coexist."
A "Coexist" message made up with differing religious symbols that attempts to combine religious beliefs (which, in some cases are polar opposites of each other) cannot portray an honest type of message.
Another great read related to this subject:
Albert Mohler: Two Rival Religions?
"The chief modern rival of Christianity is 'liberalism,'" Machen asserted. "Modern liberalism, then, has lost sight of the two great presuppositions of the Christian message--the living God and the fact of sin," he argued. "The liberal doctrine of God and the liberal doctrine of man are both diametrically opposite to the Christian view. But the divergence concerns not only the presuppositions of the message, but also the message itself."
Kainz offers a crucial insight here. He is suggesting that one of the most important factors in the nation's cultural divide is that persons on both sides are deeply committed to their own creeds and worldviews--even if on one side those creeds are secular.
"This explains why talking about abortion or same-sex 'marriage,' for example, with certain liberals is usually futile. It is like trying to persuade a committed Muslim to accept Christ. Because his religion forbids it, he can only do so by converting from Islam to Christianity; he cannot accept Christ as long as he remains firmly committed to Islam. So it is with firmly committed liberals: Their 'religion' forbids any concessions to the 'conservative' agenda, and as long as they remain committed to their secular ideology, it is futile to hope for such concessions from them."
No wonder liberals hate true Christian believers so much! It competes with their secular IDOLATRY; and as Mohler states, "it is futile to hope for such concessions from them." Kind of destroys the idea of that "Coexist" propaganda...doesn't it?
The next segment explains the ObamaFRAUD mess and why he and his cohorts push their radical ideology upon an unwilling populace:
Looking back over the last century, Kainz argues that Marxism and ideological Liberalism have functioned as religious systems for millions of individuals. Looking specifically at Marxism, Kainz argues that the Marxist religion had dogmas, canonical scriptures, priests, theologians, ritualistic observances, parochial congregations, heresies, hagiography, and even an eschatology. Marxism's dogmas were its core teachings, including economic determinism and the "dictatorship of the proletariat." Its canonical scriptures included the writings of Marx, Lenin, and Mao Tse Tung. Its priests were those guardians of Marxist purity who functioned as the ideological theorists of the movement. Its ritualistic observances included actions ranging from workers' strikes to mass rallies. The eschatology of Marxism was to be realized in the appearance of "Communist man" and the new age of Marxist utopia.
Similarly, Kainz argues that modern secular liberalism includes its own dogmas. Among these are the beliefs "that mankind must overcome religious superstition by means of Reason; that empirical science can and will eventually answer all the questions about the world and human values that were formerly referred to traditional religion or theology; and that the human race, by constantly invalidating and disregarding hampering traditions, can and will achieve perfectibility."
Sorry ObamaFRAUD and cohorts - what you clueless people up there in Washington D.C. are doing is RUINING OUR CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC!!
Albert Mohler expresses the reasons why the liberal/progressive/socialist/communist ideologues can NEVER tolerate or peacefully coexist with Christians. Their propaganda may work on some unsuspecting people or groups, but they don't fool those who belong to Christ and follow genuine biblical Christianity.
The "coexist" propaganda is bad advice when one thinks about eternity. Jesus Christ said He is THE way to eternal life and no one comes to God except through Him (John 14:6). The apostle Peter said there is no other name under heaven by which we can be saved (Acts 4:12).
The advice from this Christian blog author is to invest your whole heart in Jesus! You see, being single-minded (while necessarily discriminating against all other religions) is the key to new life in Christ! It is why Christians, in particular, are targeted through man-made laws which are meant to not only challenge our faith, but to crush our faith and stall any influence in this world. They are ultimately meant to even go so far as to criminalize, one by one, each and every tenet of our faith.
Some people refuse to take God's warnings seriously. They doubt God's sovereignty and question whether or not He will really judge people who reject His offer of salvation. Well, Jesus seemed to think so! His words, recorded in the Gospel of John, are that the judgment of God will rest on all who reject God's gift of forgiveness and eternal life. It's not a threat, but it is a warning. And it's a warning that I think every person should heed!
Accepting the gift of salvation puts one on the road to a new life in Christ. There is nothing better in this world! So don't let the naysayers who spew garbage through the propaganda of one-way "tolerance" of aberrant behaviors, or the "coexist" gurus who use the symbol in order to steer people away from the saving grace of Jesus Christ catch you in the snare of their not-so-veiled trap.
