The homosexual lobby’s (HL) refusal to recognize Margaret Court’s tennis achievements is flagrant hypocrisy. Being married five times wouldn’t have eliminated her praise. Or being a lesbian among lesbians. But her strong Christian faith, adhering to Biblical teaching, minimizes her achievements in eyes of those who reject the powerful teaching of God’s word against homosexuality.
It’s a favorite tactic of the (HL). They want to believe they have established a “new normal” in sexual relationships because they demanded it, and culture agreed. As if two fallen, sinful groups can make ANY wrong into a right simply by WANTING it. As if any decision ratified in Heaven can ever be annulled by choices made on earth. Following that depraved perspective, those who practice bestiality, incest or pederasty, or even burning children to Molech—would be acceptable. All of which the same context in Leviticus 18 abhors and forbids. Besides, no new morality exists in honesty, keeping one’s word, fair business dealings, etc., etc., etc. How convenient of the homosexuals to want an exemption for them denied every other sinful behavior!
The intolerance of the (HL) warns us: if we even begin to sympathize with them, or to compromise with them, they, like slave owners in the 1850’s, will keep increasing their demands until they ARE the “new normal”, and everyone opposing them is subject to prosecution for being intolerant.
Let us draw the line where God drew it: at the beginning of creation he made MAN and WOMAN the historic normal in all sexual relationships. Therefore homosexuality never has been, isn’t now and never CAN be an alternative to heterosexual relationships. While margarine may be an alternative to butter; and Junior College an alternative to University education; and fish and poultry an alternative to beef and pork, homosexuality can never be anything but a perverted, never an alternative, lifestyle.
Margaret Court represents the (HL) effort to intimidate Christians into silence about homosexuality. And, when they can’t be intimidated, to deny them honors their success in competition earned. Well...we won’t be silent and we won’t change the Bible because sinners want to make their own rules. And if that denies us acceptance in society, we refuse to become God’s enemies by championing causes he condemns. End Part III
