I have had journalists poke a microphone in my face as they asked me, “How does homosexual marriage affect YOU?” I remember one such incident in which I tried to answer a journalist at least five times on a question such as that, but they still did not get it – or refused to get it.
And it is not just journalists who seemed incredulous as I tried to explain how EVERYONE is impacted when fake marriage is legalised. Plenty of others preferred to live in la la land as I sought to explain how we all will feel the impact of it. Even plenty of clueless Christians with their heads in the sand did not – or would not – believe me.
I and others warned about this for decades. For what it is worth, I came to Australia in 1989, and from day one I was warning about the massive dangers we all would experience first hand from the homosexual juggernaut. I warned. I pleaded. I sought to sound the alarm. But for the most part very few listened. Very few took any notice. Very few could be shaken out of their slumber.
And now that all this is coming upon us just as we said it would, we STILL have the majority still firmly living in denial – even plenty of Christians who should know better. They do not want to know and they do not want to care. And that damnable ignorance and apathy will greatly harm us all.
Even if no one takes any heed, I will still continue to sound the alarm. I have documented hundreds of cases of people who have fallen afoul of this militant agenda, with simple disagreement and refusal to bend the knee resulting in fines, loss of employment, and even jail terms.
And I have written repeatedly in countless articles now about the rise and rise of anti-Christian bigotry and persecution taking place – all as a direct result of the militant homosexual agenda. Yet most folks still think none of this will impact them and seek to pretend that none of this is happening.
A year out from that dark day when Australia voted in faux marriage, the militancy has only increased and the threats to those who will not submit have risen substantially. Consider this shocker of a report as found in the Sydney Morning Herald – hardly a conservative news outlet. Check out these frightening words:
The machine behind the successful “yes” campaign on same-sex marriage will turn its sights on discrimination against LGBTI people in schools, the workforce and the law in a major revamp aiming to take the fight directly to Prime Minister Scott Morrison in 2019.
Declaring discrimination did not end with the legalisation of marriage equality one year ago today, the group will lobby for an end to exemptions that allow religious organisations to discriminate against gay, lesbian and transgender people – at schools and other workplaces.
It also stands ready to fight the government’s looming response to Philip Ruddock’s review of religious freedom, which was initiated a year ago to quell the concerns from churches and MPs about the effects of same-sex marriage. The Equality Campaign will rebrand as Equality Australia and will be led by new chief executive Anna Brown, a former director of the Human Rights Law Centre and a key player in the marriage equality movement.
She seized on the “disgraceful” and “completely unacceptable” failure of the Parliament this week to change laws that allow religious schools to expel gay students, despite Mr Morrison’s pledge to fix the problem by the end of this year. “These shameful debates condoning discrimination and bigotry must end,” Ms Brown said.
“Discrimination didn’t end with marriage equality. We need to come together to take the fight to the government at the highest levels and keep advancing equality for LGBTI people. We know we have the power to change laws and change lives. We’re here to show politicians that our community is a force to be reckoned with.”
Equality Australia will draw on more than $500,000 of leftover cash from the “yes” campaign, as well as raising funds from the supporter base galvanised by last year’s postal survey. The organisation will be tightly focused on campaigning for law reform – including banning the discredited practice of conversion therapy nationwide.
Wow, did you get that? Read the entire article and weep. A well-heeled, well-oiled, and well-connected band of lobby groups is not happy with mere homosexual marriage. Of course. I and others said that all along. That was simply the beginning of their real endgame: the eradication of all Christian opposition to their agenda.
Notice I did not say the eradication of Christianity. They know that plenty of carnal and compromised churches, leaders and institutions that claim to be Christian are fully in bed with them, and they are serving their purposes as useful idiots. But it is the Christian who actually believes the Word of God and resolutely stands on it that they are targeting.
And notice just what they are targeting: “religious organisations”. Um, that is pretty broad-based, isn’t it? That certainly means ALL Christian schools, all places of theological education, things like Christian bookstores, Christian small business, and Christian ministries, including community help groups.
And it will not stop there. We can be absolutely certain that churches will also be included. Soon enough the demands will be that all churches hire homosexual pastors, Sunday School teachers, youth workers, counsellors, and so on. Nothing will be exempt as these hard-core militants continue their search and destroy operation.
And all this is exactly what we warned about. The other side is NEVER satisfied, it is never content, it is never at rest. It will keep going until every last vestige of Christian opposition and criticism is completely wiped off the map. You have been warned.
Paul Kelly in The Australian has been writing about related matters, and is worth hearing from:
The progressive transformation of Australia has brought the Liberal and Labor parties into fundamental conflict on the philosophical but practical task of reconciling religious freedom with protecting LGBTIQ rights from discrimination.
The grand mythology before, during and after the same-sex marriage debate that this advance had no implications for religious freedom is now exposed — the conflict is undisguised, the deadlock in the federal parliament is a national embarrassment and the hopes for a rational settlement have been damaged.
Parliament has now broken for the year. The upshot is that religious schools in Australia are threatened in the discharge of their mission and LGBTIQ students promised by Scott Morrison and Bill Shorten to have guaranteed legal protections are still denied. The situation is a shambles. This ludicrous stalemate has no precedent in our history.
It exposes the paralysis, poison and lack of goodwill in our politics. The year should not have ended this way. Father Frank Brennan, a member of the Ruddock review into religious freedom, called in on Wednesday to try to mediate between Liberals and Labor, left the building nauseated. “There was no prospect of reasoned dialogue to reach an agreement,” he told Inquirer.
And as I keep saying, all this is not just theoretical. All over the Western world we see the heavy hand of the homosexual militants, aided and abetted by the state, hunting down and dragging to the courts those who refuse to submit.
In the Brave New World of homosexual hegemony, Christianity HAS been declared to be the enemy. True believers are the last man standing when it comes to the militants achieving all their stated aims of totally transforming society and remaking it in their own image.
Jonathan Maren has recently penned a piece on this and is worth quoting from:
No longer, you’ll notice, are the LGBT activists mocking family values. Instead, the rhetoric has been completely reversed: They now claim that it is their side that represents “family values,” and that it is social conservatives—and more specifically, traditionalist Christians—who pose an actual threat to these values. It is Christians, the sexual revolutionaries now state accusingly, who are “homophobic,” “transphobic,” and an active threat to their own children if they hold to the moral values that held Western civilization together for 2,000 years. It is those who hold traditional values, the LGBT activists claim, that are directly responsible for gay and trans suicides.
Without the slightest sense of irony, the LGBT movement has abandoned the moral relativism they used as a philosophical vehicle to get the culture to this point and are now claiming that they are, in fact, the New Moral Majority. They believe that Christian adoption agencies should be shut down for declining to place children with gay couples, and anyone who weakly insists that children might be best served by both a mother and a father are furiously shouted down as bigots. Even further than that, adoption agencies and foster care are even declining to place children with Christian parents because of their Christian beliefs. Christians, the LGBT activists warn the public, are dangerous.
The Sexual Revolution was not only a revolution, it was a reversal—and a replacement. As the remnants of Judeo-Christian morality are rooted out of the laws that govern us, they are replaced by new laws and even new definitions of biological reality. Biblical truth, in many cases, is now considered to be hate speech. Religious liberty is also a target, as the LGBT activists insist that it be subject to the new sexual dogmas that have swept our institutions. The debate has now moved beyond a discussion on how people should behave, and how far the law can go in dictating such things. It is now a war over how society should order itself; a battle for the soul of our civilization.
And at the moment, Christians appear to be losing badly.
Yes this is an all-out war. It always has been. The trouble is, when only one side knows and acts as if this is the case, the other side will get slaughtered. And that is exactly what we see happening. Those who hold to traditional and Christian values and beliefs are losing big time – mainly because most of them are not even in the battle. The other side keeps winning by default while we remain asleep at the wheel.
One final word: those who so tire of me and my constant warnings need not fret much longer. I am as certain as I can be of anything that the days are numbered for me and my ministry. All the heavyweights – like Twitter and Google and YouTube and Facebook, etc – have already declared war on conservatives and Christians.
I have already faced some of their wrath, and I know that it will only get worse. Soon my tweets will be banned, my videos pulled, and eventually this very site removed. This has been and will continue to be the fate of all those who will not bow down and worship at the homosexual altar.
