The Rise of the GayGB and Pink Inquisition
The Soviet Union’s Secret Police – the KGB – was a vicious persecutor of Christians who opposed communism. Millions of Christians were investigated, interrogated, tortured, imprisoned and murdered for failing to comply with political party orders, or for failing to pay homage to the Dictator of the Soviet Union at the time. 50 Million were sent to freeze, or starve to death in the 1200 concentration camps, many in Siberia. The KGB also used “Active Measures” disinformation to discredit critics and undermine “enemies of the Soviet state”.
Today, homosexual activist bullies – “the GayGB”, are the rising KGB of the West –– a force of radical homosexuals whose aim seems to include desensitising, intimidating, silencing and prosecuting Christians for their beliefs on marriage and morality. All over the world, Christians are being targeted, bullied and prosecuted for believing what the Bible teaches about the institution of marriage, sexuality and family.
A New Inquisition
Here we highlight a selection of serious cases in South Africa, Sweden, Germany, the United Kingdom, America and Canada of Christians harassed, or prosecuted, for expressing their thoughts and beliefs about homosexuality.
1. Constitutional Court to Decide Whether State Can Determine Church Doctrine
On 27 August 2015, the Constitutional Court will hear argument on whether Ecclesia de Lange (the lesbian minister whose service as ordained minister of the Methodist Church was discontinued by the denomination following her announcement that she was getting “married” to her same-sex partner) should be granted leave to appeal the Supreme Court of Appeal’s decision that the courts should not get entangled in doctrinal disputes of local churches or denominations.
Religious Freedom at Stake
Should leave to appeal be granted, this will be a watershed case for religious freedom and the autonomy of the Church in South Africa. Should the Constitutional Court ultimately find against the denomination, it would mean that the courts and government commissions would in future be able to dictate to churches what they may and may not believe and how churches should be governed.
2. Freedom of Speech Under Attack
A Christian University of Cape Town (UCT) student was suspended from the Student Representative Council (SRC) in June 2015 for expressing her Biblical beliefs on her personal Facebook page.
Zizipho Pae, a final year Economics and Statistics student and Vice-President of the SRC at UCT, joined millions of people around the world by posting her opinion on her Facebook page in response to the recent US Supreme Court ruling that legalised same-sex “marriage" in all 50 states in America.
She wrote, “We are institutionalising and normalising sin. God have mercy on us.” The backlash to her brief post went beyond irrational. Homosexual activists at UCT launched a vicious tirade of hate and intimidation against her that defies description. Ironically, the attackers demand tolerance.
Blasphemy and Pornography
Homosexual pornography and the most depraved anti-Christian blasphemy was posted on her Facebook page. She was also personally threatened, insulted and vilified in the most despicable ways.
Her SRC office was trashed. Scriptures pinned on her office walls were ripped off and stomped on. Semi-naked homosexual activists photographed themselves in her office in lewd poses.
Despite the awful abuse and intimidation of Zizi, UCT management have repeatedly and publicly expressed their commitment to protect LGBTI "rights", but not the rights of Christians!
Dereliction of Duty
UCT’s management have apparently taken no action against those perpetrating the harassment and appalling criminal attacks against Zizipho Pae. But they have suspended her for her Biblical convictions.
In 2009, UCT featured the most appalling blasphemy of the name of Jesus Christ in their annual “Sax Appeal” charity magazine. When they were challenged, they defended the students responsible for the blasphemous outrage - by appealing to the “free speech” protections in the constitution. Alarmingly, a Christian student at UCT expressing her Biblical beliefs on her personal Facebook page is not found worthy of similar “free speech” protections. In fact, she is being threatened with expulsion!
This is blatant and outrageous anti-Christian discrimination. Homosexual students and every other group are allowed to freely express their thoughts and opinions at UCT. However, Christians do not seem to enjoy the same rights, or respect, at UCT.
Members of the SRC Executive and a group calling themselves the Queer Revolution demanded Zizi retract and apologise for her Biblical statement. She could not in good conscience do so.
The Student Representative Council (SRC) meeting at UCT (21 July 2015) to discuss Zizipho Pae’s suspension from the SRC, was nothing short of a kangaroo court.
Christians at the meeting reported that the SRC members seemed biased against the Christian viewpoint from the start. They report that the Christian viewpoint was interrupted and shouted down by a mob of intolerant homosexual activists, reducing their speaking time. This mob had already met with the SRC President on Monday to demand Zizi’s removal. The LGBTI group protested that the SRC President was not fit to chair the meeting (because he was not agreeing with them), and accused him (and another white Christian who spoke in support of Zizi) of racism! Because of the intimidation and chaos, the SRC President eventually adjourned the meeting and left. The meeting continued in his absence and a motion was tabled for Zizi's expulsion. The motion was accepted with 7 votes for expulsion, 0 against and 1 abstaining. Zizi was thus 'expelled' from the SRC with immediate effect. This surely must be a violation of SRC meeting Rules of Order as the Chairman had adjourned the meeting and was not present for this ruling.
Petition for Freedom of Speech on Campus
The only positive step that prevailed at the meeting, was when Christian supporters of Pae handed over a petition of four thousand signatures supporting her Constitutional rights. The petition also points out that no UCT or SRC rules, or laws of South Africa, were broken by Pae’s Facebook post.
In response to the unlawful SRC ruling, Pae asked the Vice Chancellor to intervene. In a letter to Zizipho Pae, the UCT Vice-Chancellor stated that the decision to expel her from the SRC was found invalid and that she must be re-instated. Despite this delayed justice, (a simple action that he should have made six weeks ago), this is a great victory for religious freedom and free speech in South Africa. (www.forsa.org.za)
“But Peter and John answered and said to them, ‘Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge.’” Acts 4:19
3. Guesthouse Owners Targeted
On 24 June 2014, the Equality Court in Bellville ruled that it was in the interest of the parties, and in the interest of justice, that the dispute between the homosexual couple and the Christian owners of House of Bread Guest House in Wolseley, at this point be referred to an agreed institution for conciliation, mediation or negotiation.
The Christian owners of The House of Bread Guesthouse in Wolseley, Western Cape, were hauled before the Equality Court in Bellville for choosing not to host a gay couple in their home in November 2013.
The court hearing followed an investigation by the SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) following a complaint by the gay couple after they were declined a room at The House of Bread guesthouse.
In Court, the Magistrate pointed out that, on the facts as agreed between the parties, it is clear that the Christian owners already on a previous occasion when the issue first arose and before legal proceedings were instituted against them, were desirous to amicably resolve the matter, but that the homosexual couple was not interested. (www.forsa.org.za)
Freedom of Association at Stake
A ruling in favour of the homosexual couple would have set a negative legal precedent for Christians taking a stand on their Biblical convictions on homosexuality. The guesthouse owners would have been forced to donate money to a homosexual lobby group. (FOR SA Report, www.gatewaynews.co.za, 26 June 2014.)
4. Bloemfontein Christian Training Centre Violates Gay Rights, Says SAHRC
A Christian arts training centre in Bloemfontein has been found guilty of human rights violations for discriminating against homosexuals, the SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) ruled on 8 April 2013.
The SAHRC has recommended that the Creare Training Centre amend its constitution to accommodate diversity and attend “sensitisation workshops” conducted by the Institute for Social Justice and Reconciliation Studies at the University of the Free State, in collaboration with the South African Council of Churches.
Freedom of Religion
The Department of Justice ordered the SAHRC to investigate alleged anti-homosexual discrimination by the centre, following media reports that it claims in its prospectus that it can cure gay students and that if they refused treatment, they would be expelled. The centre responded by publishing a statement on its website saying it does not discriminate against anybody and offers a wide range of part-time courses to students irrespective of the race, religion or sexual orientation. It says that students considering its fulltime Bible School course, which accounts for less than 0.5% of its student component, are required to commit to pursuing a Biblical lifestyle that includes a heterosexual view on human sexuality.
According to its policy statement, the centre is available to offer ministry support, in the form of Biblical teaching, prayer and encouragement to students who want to change their sexual orientation. (Andre Viljoen, 9 April 2013, www.gatewaynews.co.za.)
5.Church Ordered to Pay R87 000 Fine for Firing Gay Music Teacher
The Pretoria High Court ruled that the NG Kerk Moreleta Park discriminated against a gay music teacher (2008).
Johan Strydom was fired from the church's arts academy because of his unrepentant sexual orientation. The church argued that Strydom set a bad example for his students by being involved in a gay relationship but Judge Deon Basson said it was not part of his job description to be a role model for Christianity. The church was ordered to apologise to Strydom and to pay R87 000 to “compensate for his loss of dignity and income”.(www.myboradband.co.za)
6. Ordered to Create Dating Site for Homosexuals
Neil Clark Warren, the Christian founder of the popular dating site eHarmony, was sued by a homosexual man because his website did not provide for homosexual dating. In 2008, Warren was ordered by the New Jersey attorney general to create a dating site for homosexuals. If he refused, he would not be allowed to operate in the state at all. The company sadly gave in to the demands of the homosexuals and launched a separate homosexual dating website. (BCNN1 Editors, www.blackchristiannews.com, 10 February 2014.)
7. Fined $135,000 For Refusing to Design a Gay-Themed Cake
In 2013, the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries ruled that Aaron and Melissa Klein, the Christian owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, violated civil rights laws when they refused to design a cake for a lesbian wedding. They were fined $135,000 as "compensatory damages for emotional, mental, and physical suffering." They were also slapped with a gag order that prohibits them from speaking publicly about their refusal to participate in, or design wedding cakes, for same-sex unions.
8. Another Baker Fined
Also in 2013, a judge in Colorado ruled that Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Denver violated anti-discriminatory laws when he refused to design a cake for a homosexual wedding. (BCNN1 Editors, www.blackchristiannews.com, 10 February 2014.)
9. Photographers Targeted
The New Mexico Supreme Court ruled (22 August 2013) that two Christian photographers, Elaine and Jonathan Huguenin, who declined to provide their services at a homosexual union ceremony, violated the state’s Human Rights Act. (BCNN1 Editors, www.blackchristiannews.com, 10 February 2014.)
10. Florists Targeted
The Washington state attorney general filed a lawsuit against Barronelle Stutzman, the owner of Arlene’s Flowers & Gifts, when she declined to provide flowers for a homosexual wedding.
Barronelle Stutzman has served and employed people who identify as homosexual for her entire career. Despite this, the American Civil Liberties Union and the Washington Attorney General claimed that she was guilty of unlawful discrimination when she acted consistent with her faith and declined to use her creative skills to beautify the same-sex ceremony of a long-time customer and friend for his same-sex wedding. (Alliance Defending Freedom, www.adflegal.org)
On February 18, 2015, Benton County Superior Court Judge Alexander Ekstrom ruled that she had violated the state's anti-discrimination law in both cases. Ms. Stutzman is now appealing the ruling.
11. Couple Threatened for Refusing Gay Wedding Ceremony at Art Gallery
In Iowa, Dick and Betty Odgaard, the Mennonite Christian owners of Görtz Haus, an art gallery, restaurant and wedding venue located in a former church building, declined to give a homosexual couple permission to hold their “wedding” ceremony at the location. The Odgaards were forced to pay $5,000 to the gay couple. They also received threatening phone calls and e-mails from angry homosexuals, and the resulting media slander and boycotts caused them to need to close their business.
They decided to stop hosting wedding ceremonies for all couples rather than abide by a government mandate that they accommodate same-sex ceremonies, but the remaining business activity was not enough to keep their doors open. (The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, www.becketfund.org).
12. Pro-Family Groups Labelled “Hate Groups” in Army Training Sessions
Several dozen army active duty and reserve troops were told during a mandatory military training session in Mississippi (October 2013) that influential pro-family groups such as American Family Association are now classified as “domestic hate groups”. (www.lifesitenews.com)
13. Walt Disney World Threatens Boy Scouts Funding Unless They Allow Homosexual Scoutmasters
In March 2014, Walt Disney World (Orlando, Florida) said they would stop funding the local Boy Scouts chapter unless the group allows open homosexuals to serve as Scoutmasters.The Scouts have claimed that it would open themselves up to ruinous lawsuits if any scoutmasters sexually abused scouts in their care.
On May 23, the Boy Scouts approved a resolution saying that “no youth may be denied membership in the Boy Scouts of America on the basis of sexual orientation or preference alone.” Then on 13 July 2015, the Boy Scouts of America Executive Committee unanimously approved allowing gay adults to serve as scoutmasters.
These policy changes have caused many parents to instead enrol their children in the Royal Rangers or Trail Life USA (TLUSA), Christian alternatives created by scouting leaders. (www.lifesitenews.com)
14. Family Research Council Security Guard Shot By Gay Terrorist
In 2012, a homosexual activist walked into the Family Research Council Headquarters in Washington and said “I don’t like your politics” and opened fire on a security guard. Despite being shot in the arm, the guard managed to wrestle the gun away before anyone else was hurt. The 28-year-old terrorist, Floyd Lee Corkins, said in a videotaped confession that he hoped the atrocity would make a statement against the people who work in that building “with their stance against gay rights…”
15. Couple Receive Death Threats After Refusing Homosexual Couple
The Christian owners of the bed-and-breakfast Chymorvah House in Cornwall, England, Hazelmary and Peter Bull, received death threats and were sued after refusing to provide lodging for a homosexual couple. After a legal trial resulted in them having to pay $6,000 in fines, they decided to close down their business.
16. Bakers Fined
Ashers Baking Company in Belfast, Northern Ireland, is appealing a ruling, which said that the business broke the law by declining to decorate a cake with a pro-gay marriage campaign slogan.The McArthur family, who own and run Ashers, said they could not fulfil the order because it conflicted with their Christian beliefs about marriage being between a man and a woman.On 19 May 2015, Judge Brownlie ruled that Ashers Baking Company broke sexual orientation and political discrimination laws.The bakery was taken to court by the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland and ordered to pay 500 pounds in compensation. (www.christian.org.uk)
17. 69-Year-Old Street Preacher Arrested and Charged for Sermon
In Bournemouth, 2002, Harry Hammond, a Christian pensioner, was convicted under the public order laws for saying that homosexuality was immoral.Mr Hammond, 69 at the time, was preaching in Bournemouth town centre holding a sign bearing the words, “Jesus Gives Peace, Jesus is Alive, Stop Immorality, Stop Homosexuality, Stop Lesbianism, Jesus is Lord”. But a crowd of around 40 people who disagreed with his preaching forced him to the ground where some people poured mud and water on him. When two police officers eventually turned up at the scene it was the Evangelist who was arrested and charged. No violent members of the crowd were arrested. Mr Hammond died the following year.
18. Street Preacher Held For 19 Hours By Police
Greater Manchester Police accused 57-year-old John Craven of public order offences after two teenage boys approached him in September 2011 and asked what he thought of homosexuals. Mr Craven responded by quoting the Bible’s stance on homosexuality, but said that “whilst God hates sin He loves the sinner”. The teenagers then kissed in front of him and taunted him with suggestive sexual acts. Mr Craven was arrested by Police Constable Alistair McKittrick for a public order offence, after the pair told the officer they felt insulted by Mr Craven’s comments. He was not offered food until, after almost 15 hours, he was given a bowl of cereal and a microwave meal following a complaint to the police from his friend.
Mr Craven, who has been street preaching for seven years, said: “I never intended to cause anyone harassment, alarm or distress. In fact, quite the opposite. I preach the Gospel which means good news and the love of God for all.”
Thankfully,Mr Craven has now received £13,000 as compensation for wrongful arrest, false imprisonment and breach of his human rights. (www.christian.org.uk).
19. Pensioners Interrogated by Police for Opinions
In 2005, Christian pensioners, Joe and Helen Roberts, were subjected to an 80-minute interrogation by police because they had expressed opposition to their local council spending public money on ‘gay rights’ projects. No criminal offence was committed and yet the police refuse to apologise for their intimidation of people over their opinions.
20. Violence at Parliament
In 1998, when the House of Lords voted against reducing the homosexual age of consent, gay rights activists outside Parliament became violent. Protesters scuffled with the police and jumped barricades in a bid to get inside and confront Peers. Some, including Archbishop Donald Coggan, were insulted, jostled and threatened. Christian campaigner Baroness Young, had to be protected by police.
21. Guesthouse Owners Fined for Not Accommodating Homosexual Couple
The British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal has fined the owners of a now-closed Riverbend Bed and Breakfast $4,500 for declining a gay couple a reservation in 2009.Les and Susan Molnar, the former owners of Riverbend B&B, in Grand Forks, British Columbia, cited religious convictions for why they could not agree to rent a room to Shaun Eadie and Brian Thomas. (www.lifesitenews.com)
22. Christian Parents Assaulted at Rally
When up to a thousand conservative Christian parents at a rally in Stuttgart, Germany (1 February 2014) were protesting against a new pro-homosexual “sexual diversity” curriculum in their schools, homosexuals demonstrators blockaded the march, interrupted the rally speeches with heckling and assaulted the listeners, through shoving and throwing paint bombs and eggs. A poster that was against the homosexualising of children was set on fire by the rioters.
The police, instead of dealing with the assailants and bringing order, came and took the side of the homosexual rioters, telling the Christian protesters to leave. Since the police did nothing about the illegal blockade, or to protect the Christian parents from the assaults of the homosexual rioters, the rally participants were forced to end the march and rally earlier than planned. (www.lifesitenews.com, www.snopes.com and see Youtube video of the march: https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=80&v=hpggxA1Ns90 ).
23. Swedish Pastor Locked Up for Preaching on Romans 1
A Swedish pastor, Rev. Ake Green, in 2005, was charged with inviting hatred against homosexuals after a sermon urging Christians to show homosexuals “deep respect” and offer them the “grace of Jesus Christ.” He called sexual immorality, including homosexuality, a “cancerous growth” in society. He was convicted and sentenced to one month in jail. The Swedish Supreme Court acquitted him on appeal.
What Will Happen if We Do Not Resist the Pink Agenda?
Pastors, churches and Christians may think they are exempt from such the Pink Inquisition, but here is what is going to happen in the near future if we do not rise up and stop the homosexual agenda right now:
1. Churches will be sued for not marrying same-sex couples in church ceremonies.
2. Churches will be sued for not allowing homosexual couples to use their facilities.
3. Churches will be sued for not hiring homosexuals to work on the church staff, including youth groups and worship leaders.
4. Churches will be sued for firing someone after finding out that they are a practicing, unrepentant homosexual.
5. Homosexuals are going to want to teach in Christian schools and church day care centers as well as work in church nurseries on Sundays. Some effeminate homosexual men are going to want to work in the daycare and nursery like a woman. If a church refuses to let them do so, they will sue.
6. Homosexual couples will begin applying to adopt children at Christian pregnancy centers. When they are refused, they will sue.
7. Homosexual couples will begin showing up at Christian counseling centers wanting to undergo marriage counseling or family counseling. When a pastor or family counselor refuses to counsel or advise them, in a pro-homosexual way, they will sue. (Christian chaplains are already suffering backlash in the military. Chaplains have been court martialed for not providing pro-homosexual “marriage counselling”.)
8. If a church has the courage to practice church discipline and revoke the membership of a known, unrepentant homosexual, that homosexual could sue the church for his tithes and other financial contributions (such as to the church’s building fund, etc.). As a pastor, you might be thinking that the ‘nice, kind homosexuals’ in your congregation would never do that. However, do not underestimate the demonic and extremely vindictive spirit of homosexuality.
We will begin to see more and more of these kinds of intimidating situations in the near future. As a pastor, you might be saying, ‘I’m just going to be nice and appease the homosexuals. I am just going to preach the good news, love everybody, and hope for the best.’ However, If you do not stand up now against the homosexual social engineering agenda, you may not have a church to preach in at all.
Yes, God commands us to “go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15), but He also commands us to “reprove, rebuke, and exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine” (2 Timothy 4:2), and to “cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew My people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins” (Isaiah 58:1). (BCNN1 Editors, www.blackchristiannews.com, 10 February 2014.)
Purifying the Church
Just as God uses persecution to both purify and revive the Church in countries where Christianity is illegal, soGod will use this issue of homosexual activism and state bullying to purify His Church in the West. Those who refuse to bow or bend to “Caesar’s” demands, will, like Daniel and his friends, “… shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.” Daniel 12:3
"Who will rise up for Me against the evildoers? Who will stand up for Me against the workers of iniquity?" Psalm 94:16
Resources to Counter-Act the Homosexual Agenda
With the extraordinary pressures to re-define marriage and accommodate the demands by gay activists for homosexual unions to be accepted as "marriage", many are asking: Well, what difference does it make?
If you think that the homosexual agenda won’t affect you or your family – you are wrong. As The Pink Agenda documents, the sexual revolutionaries want to transform the very fabric of society, they intend to reconstruct the family, and homosexualise the schools - and they want government funding (your taxes) to do it! Freedom of speech and toleration of dissent are a fruit of Christianity, and seldom in history have these freedoms been more at risk. We need an open and intelligent debate on the homosexual agenda:
*Does medical science support the claim that people who get involved in homosexuality are born that way and cannot change?
*Are homosexual activists really just wanting the same rights as everyone else or are they after special rights and privileges?
*What would be the economic implications for businesses and taxpayers if homosexual partnerships were entitled to the same benefits as marriages?
*What health risks are involved in homosexual and lesbian activities?
*Why do men involved in homosexuality and sodomy have an average life expectancy of 42 compared to 73 for other men?
*Why are homosexuals 24 times more likely to commit suicide than other people?
*Why are those involved in homosexuality more likely to sexually molest a child?
*Does the international "gay" movement agenda include the lowering of the age of consent for sex with children, especially boys, and the normalisation of paedophilia?
*What is being taught to 10-year-olds in South African schools about homosexuality and bisexuality?
*Have politicians, radio stations, Christian ministers and others been sued, fined and imprisoned in other countries for speaking against homosexuality, and is there a similar agenda for South Africa?
*South Africa is the only country in the world with a constitution that specifically protects "sexual orientation". Legally and politically, what does this mean for our country?
All these questions are clearly dealt with and well documented in The Pink Agenda. The homosexual activists own writings make it abundantly clear that, as part of a vast social engineering project, the pink agenda will not settle for the deviant being declared normal. They insist that the normal must be declared deviant.
With governments promoting homosexual pseudo-marriage right now, you need to be equipped with the facts, and an understanding of where it will all end - if we don’t stop the tidal wave! This book will equip you with ways to ensure that we do not only resist the homosexualisation for future generations, but that we turn back the tide of sexual revolution in our country.
