Had Australian Margaret Court been a lesbian, her achievements as the first to win the Women’s Grand Slam of tennis would have been heralded loudly and universally. Since Margaret Court as a Christian opposes homosexuality, lesbianism, transgender issues and same-sex-marriages, Australian officials debate how to honor her. San Diego U-T, 1/21/20
Not because they doubt her tennis skills. But because she speaks out against sexual perversity. Meaning...her life skills won’t be recognized because her life-beliefs run counter to societal acceptance of sexual deviancy.
In other words, society’s acceptance of homosexuality has reached a new level of intolerance against Bible-believing Christians. I’ll call attention to but one remark made by a well-known lesbian: that Margaret’s views are pathetic and she’s hiding behind the Bible.
That’s emphatically wrong. Court isn’t hiding behind the Bible. She’s very public about the Bible’s standing against sexual perversion. Homosexuals don’t want to just turn Bible truth into a lie. They more dangerously want to turn the lie of homosexuality into a truth all must accept.
It’s nothing new. It was called aselgia sin in the New Testament, Ephesians 4:19, I Peter 4:3-4: brazen, public, shameless, and calling opposition to it intolerance for not being tolerant of their lifestyle. It’s a darkened mind that pits itself against Bible teaching, ignoring Christ’s in-your-face teaching that “every plant”—that is, every teaching and habit and behavior—that God rejects will be eliminated from Heaven.
