True Christians Are Being Forced Into the Closet

We are seeing what many have predicted as this sinful idea of homosexual marriage progresses in our culture. The more it progresses, the more it forces true Christians into the closet. For to be openly biblical in our beliefs is becoming increasingly unacceptable in our culture.

Case and point: the Army has punished a master sergeant for serving Chick Fil-A at his promotion party and for supporting the law of the land, the Defense of Marriage Act.

According to Todd Starnes of Foxnews:

The unidentified soldier was investigated, reprimanded, threatened with judicial action and given a bad efficiency report, according to the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty.

“They say he is no longer a team player and was not performing up to standards,” Chaplain Alliance Executive Director Ron Crews told Fox News. “This is just one little example of a case of a soldier just wanting to express his views and now he’s been jumped on by the military.”

The soldier’s story was included in a letter to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights documenting concerns about attacks on religious liberty within the Armed Services.

The Pentagon did not return calls seeking comment.

Last summer the soldier had received his promotion to master sergeant. The promotion coincided with a national controversy surrounding Chick-fil-A’s support of traditional marriage. Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy told a newspaper that he was “guilty as charged” when it came to supporting the biblical definition of marriage. Gay rights advocates were infuriated and some Democratic leaders – most notably the mayor of Boston –  attempted to stop the popular restaurant chain from opening restaurants in their cities.

Crews said the soldier decided to hold a party to celebrate his new position. The invitations read, “In honor of my promotion and in honor of the Defense of Marriage Act, I’m serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at my promotion party.”

After the party, the solider received a letter of reprimand. Crews said at issue was the combination of the sandwiches and the soldier’s support of DOMA (which happens to be the law of the land).

 

Remember that light and darkness cannot exist together. Those who continue to hold up the sin of homosexuality as normal will do everything they can to suppress the truth in their unrighteousness. This is not something that the church can remain neutral over. Either we stand with the Scripture on the truth, or we depart from Christ and join the world.

The powers that be want to silence us. We must not remain silent. We must stand strong against that which the Bible and Christ stand against.

    1. Of course, being forced into the closet is the worst thing that can happen to the gay community because, if we are wise, we will turn that closet into a prayer closet and the last thing they want us doing is praying.

      BTW, thanks for commenting. Your comment count number has been down lately. 🙂

  2. The APA has determined that being gay is a natural part of the sexual orientation spectrum. The US Army is slow but is allowing gays to be out. The Master Sergeant is behind the times. He needs to get with the program. And btw, DOMA will not weather a Supreme Court challenge.

    1. Earl,
      Stop. The APA did so at the behest of the gay community. Homosexuality was seen as it is, a sin and an abnormality, up until it was coerced to change by the gay community.

      So stop. The Bible condemns homosexuality in every reference to the activity. Paul even condemned it when it was acceptable in the Roman culture in which he lived. You, as a Christian, are bound by God’s word, not man’s APA or the U.S. Army, or the times.

      If the Bible is not the word of God to you, then quit calling yourself a Christian.

      What God has given us is one man and one woman for marriage, nothing else. As an American, we also have a right to stand against homosexuality, times or not times. AS Christians we are to stand for righteousness. Homosexuality, which is an abomination to God because it warps the Imago Dei, is always a sin in every instance. In fact, it is a sin not to call it a sin. This is why the gospel is so important. Through the gospel, those stuck in the bondage of sin can be delivered from that bondage.

      By you seeking to endorse this sin, you are keeping people in bondage.

    2. The APA voted homosexual attraction out of their book of disorders, thanks to activist pressure from within and without the APA. Until then, they had no clue about how to deal with it because of the many variables that contribute to its manifestation. In other words, they quit, and those who still saw it for the disorder it is were outvoted (though less than half the membership voted at all).
