from Room 101, the Ministry of Love

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jun 13, 2006

"... next they came for those who split their infinitives, but because I wasn't an infinitive-splitter, I did nothing."

The Scottish Executive report found that "anti-homophobia is not seen as a priority by many schools", despite ministers' attempts to encourage equality and fight prejudice.

    Much as it pains me to say this, appeals to the Bible & religion are not going to work, because large numbers of teachers, politicians & the news media have rejected them. It may be necessary to base our arguments on the natural world; survival of the fittest, competition for procreation and resources, etc. No other species has the problem of “same sex attraction;" no other species seeks to prevent conception; rather, they strive to reproduce, IAW God's natural law.

    There should be a huge poster board in all the teacher lounges all over the world that reads, "Those who lead children into sin will never find TRUE peace in this life and WOE, WOE, to them in the next life! However can such a teacher who teaches sin as a way of life repent. The Bible warns them!"

    It seems to me that, if you are old enough to "think" that you are gay, you should be old enough to defend yourself. Are the teachers picking out who is gay or not gay? How would they know? Are they labeling or encouraging the student in thinking they are gay? Are some students "thinking they are gay" when they are not. Is the school or parent or teacher or other students creating the "lie" that the student is gay? The anti-bully ministers should get a life instead of having sex on their brains.

    Is it a problem to be repulsed by sin? Is itwrong to find repugnant evil actions and feel that one should avoid those who advocate those actions? Encourage those who indulge in these acts to reform. Accept them back into a world of normalcy when they do so. Thank God for His saving grace. But the spineless attitude to see wrong and accept it as equal to right is contrary to reason. There is nothing normal about homosexual activity. Don't ask people to say there is.

    We need to be patient about Big Sib. Leave her/him/it run the show for another decade or so and Big Imam will be her/his/its inevitable replacement--for centuries to come--till Christianity emerges gain from the catacombs.
