“The “Devoted” conference will be held in Cincinnati October 30. It should move to October 31— Halloween — since this event is a profane masquerade of authentic Christian faith. The posture of a “gay-chaste-identity” is a huge scam. Public shamelessness in the name of God signals profound double-mindedness. To even adopt an open “orientation” of sexual sin reveals a level of submission to evil, depraved desires—what is called an “abomination” in Scripture, let’s not forget.”
(Linda Harvey – Mission America) The priest or evangelical minister who claims an “LGBTQ” identity, but pledges to remain celibate, cannot be trusted to do so.
Can I repeat that? We cannot trust them. Such foolish tolerance should never be the policy in evangelical churches, and as we can now see, clinging to such identities should never have been allowed in the Catholic church.
When an irate dad in an Oregon courtroom leaped over the railing to punch out the pedophile youth pastor who had secretly filmed two of his daughters showering, many people thought he was justified, even though he was charged with assault. A GoFundMe page was set up to collect donations to his defense. So far, this page has collected over $16,000.
Congregations and especially parents are understandably outraged when men (or women) of the cloth violate their children. But when congregations and denominations readily accept frameworks that enable abuse, they have only themselves to blame.
Blessing “LGBTQ” identities for pastors, congregants and now, minor children, is a recipe for disaster.
So why is nominally evangelical Cincinnati Crossroads Church hosting a conference for youth pastors promoting “LGBTQ” behaviors, featuring one presenter affiliated with the Human Rights Campaign?
Yes, it’s that same Human Rights Campaign that hosted former Vice President Joe Biden at its recent annual gala, cheering when he called those who “use religion as a license to discriminate” the “dregs of society.” He’s talking about those who object to homosexuality.
