Homo Fascism in South Africa
"Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them."
Sexual Revolution in South Africa
The South Africa I was born and brought up in was very conservative. There was no TV. Pornography was completely illegal, so was abortion. Homosexuality was a crime. Shops and cinemas were closed on Sundays out of respect for the Lord's Day. Schools began each day with Scripture reading, hymn singing and prayer - in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Rape and child abuse was rare. Crime and violence were so low, keys would sometimes be left in the car - even downtown. Special rights for sodomites, lesbians and other perverted groups would have been unthinkable in South Africa prior to the mid-80s. Under the old government, sodomy was a criminal offence. Even cross-dressing and sexual acts "at a party" were illegal under certain legal provisions.
In the 1950s and 60s the public image of the homosexual swung between the freak-show drag queen and the criminal child-molester. In the 70s, media coverage was characterised by exposés of the sordidness and sadness of gay life. In the 80's AIDS stories and cruising related murders were the most common homosexual stories reported.
In the early nineties, however, the way in which homosexuality was dealt with in the media changed dramatically. This came with the change of political climate. We saw the communist and leftist dominated ANC (African National Congress) increasingly coming to the fore. There was increasing international influence and pressure on South Africa. The Gay Association of South Africa (GASA) was launched in the early 90s. The media began to give a 'political' and 'serious' angle to homo stories. In 1992, after the second homosexual pride march in Johannesburg (the country's business capital) serious news programmes in SA began to do in-depth documentaries on homosexuality in a respectful and glowing manner.
In, Defiant Desire: Gay and Lesbian Lives in South Africa, a book, edited by two well-known sodomites in South Africa, Mark Gevisser and Edwin Cameron, they reveal how homosexual activists realised that the ANC would be the next government and recognised (and I quote), "the value in courting this sector". Their book also explains how anti-apartheid (and pro-ANC) politics only became popular amongst homosexual activists, who were obviously vastly predominantly white liberals, at the very collapse of the old government. Essentially a small band of homosexual activists looking ahead were able to jump on the "liberation bandwagon" in the nick of time.
How Homosexuals Hijacked the Revolution.
They hijacked the revolution by consciously positioning themselves as victims of apartheid. As the editors of Defiant Desire admit, they deliberately (and I quote) "situated the lesbian and gay struggle within the context of the total liberation struggles". Although they were barely more than half a dozen mainly white liberals, they quickly gained prominence in the anti-apartheid structures. At least one homosexual in Defiant Desire admits that homosexual activists had, in a sense, managed to "hijack the struggle".
Guilt Manipulation and Intimidation
Since then homosexuals have continued to capitalise on "apartheid guilt" to promote their aims and agendas, accusing anyone who disagrees with them of being pro-apartheid and wanting to return to "old forms of discrimination". They ignore the fact that far from being disadvantaged - most homosexuals are wealthy, highly educated and successful in their careers.
Homosexual activists also relied on well-placed individuals such as the co-editor of Defiant Desire, Edwin Cameron, who was an acting Constitutional Court judge in South Africa. He was amongst several high-ranking homosexual judges, until AIDS forced him to step down. Homosexual activists and pro-homosexualists feature amongst our Constitutional Court judges, law and policy writers at the SA Law Commission, top health and city officials and government ministers, including our current Education Minister. This is a situation that was unimaginable prior to the 90s.
Intolerance in the Name of Equality
The climax of these homo activists' work was the inclusion of protection of "sexual orientation" in the 1996 constitution of South Africa. South Africa's constitution was the first in the world to specifically mention "sexual orientation" as a right and we understand that it remains the only Constitution in the world to explicitly mention it. It has also been the first to censor a Christian book against homosexuality - our book, The Pink Agenda. So the sexual revolution occurred under Nelson Mandela's government, which has steam-rolled through the legalisation of pornography, gambling, abortion on demand and legalised sodomy. Now the ANC is trying to legalise prostitution.
The Constitutional Court has ruled (and I quote):
"Sexual orientation is defined by reference to erotic attraction… Potentially a homosexual or gay or lesbian person can therefore be anyone who is erotically attracted to members of his or her own sex. Sexual orientation applies equally to the orientation of persons who are bi-sexual, or transsexual and it applies to the orientation of persons who might on a single occasion be erotically attracted to a member of their own sex."
Furthermore the court has ruled that, "The concept 'sexual orientation' as used in… the 1996 Constitution must be given a generous interpretation of which it is (sic) linguistically and textually fully capable of bearing."
The Constitution thus laid the basis for what has essentially been the frightening advance of special privileges for those engaging in sodomy in SA. Homosexuals already enjoyed all the same rights of every citizen, including: the right to life, privacy, opinion, speech, association, to own property and to vote, etc. The issue is not having the same rights as everyone else, but having special rights - privileges. Essentially what the Constitution has done is grant privileges for perverts.
Privileges for Perverts
Amongst those privileges have been:
- The legalisation of sodomy
- The acceptance of openly practicing homosexuals into the armed forces and police
- Special labour laws that advance their interests
- Pension, medical aid and inheritance benefits that recognises homosexual partners virtually as spouses.
- Access to donor sperm for lesbians
- Adoption for homosexual or lesbian singles and co-adoption for homosexual couples.
- The ANC government is currently in the process of lowering the age of consent for sodomy and is equalizing sodomy & natural intercourse in law.
- And, special refugee status for those convicted of sodomy in other countries (Virtually all other African governments do not accept homosexuality. South Africa stands out as a misnomer on a continent in which homosexuality is largely regarded as shameful, unnatural sinful and criminal.)
Unfortunately, homosexual activists are not only using our young democracy as a social engineering experiment, but they are now also using South Africa as a springboard for promoting their perverted activities and its legal recognition in the rest of Africa. In South Africa, where the vast majority of people, especially Africans, regard homosexuality as an abomination, how has the ANC managed to do all this and still stay in power? Well it controls the national TV and radio broadcasting and it relies on an uneducated populace. Most of the changes to these laws have taken place without the knowledge, let alone consent, of the general public.
According to the International Lesbian and Gay Association (ILGA) in their 1998 Issue 2 bulletin, "The ANC's platform contains the most progressive gay rights agenda in the world". At the ANC's 50th national conference the ANC further promised to "protect gay youth at home and at school", establish "programs to counter anti-gay prejudice" and to promote "inclusive sexuality education".
Looming threats to South African society from the homosexual agenda
1. Turning Schools into Homo Recruitment Centres
The new sex education and the religion education that is being introduced in South Africa could change this nation, which has traditionally been morally conservative, in a generation. In the Draft Lesbian and Gay Charter under the section "Schools, Youth and Public Education, they threaten that:
- The curricula of schools and all youth and community programmes will include positive education on "sexual orientation".
- Teaching that does not paint homosexuality positively will be censored and illegal. That would include Bible teaching.
- Teachers and counsellors must be retrained to teach homosexuality positively.
- Lesbian and homo organisations must have access to schools and community centres to provide "education".
- Parents must be prohibited from preventing their children receiving pro-homo education.
- Planned Parenthood, with whom all of you are familiar, has won the national tender to teach South African children in state schools, produce sex ed textbooks and run sex education programmes etc.
But more than that, SA homosexual academic, A. Pantazis, in Lesbian and Gay Youth in Law (2000) advocates "gay subject matter" being introduced into all courses in SA schools, not just health and sex education. The goal, he says, is to "make lesbian and gay students feel positive about their homosexuality and stimulate them to imagine lesbian/gay identities and lives for themselves."
Our current education minister, Kader Asmal, a liberal marxist with a Muslim background, is one of the strongest pro-homosexual lobbyists in Parliament.
2. 12-year-olds are being taught the mechanics of lesbian oral sex
Children as young as 8 years old are introduced to homosexuality and are being taught that (see pictures):
- Homosexuality and bisexuality is normal.
- Trying to leave homosexuality could cause "psychological problems".
- Those who oppose it are bigoted, and maybe are denying their own sexual conflicts and guilt!
- That children are born like that and there is no known cause.
- Children are being directed to vociferous homosexual organisations.
To counter this we have promoted "opt out" forms and Christian alternatives to this sex education. We continue to promote Christian schools and home-schooling.
3. Redefining Marriage, Restructuring Society
Even more than wanting taxpayer funding for their propaganda and recruitment campaign in schools, the homosexualists want to redefine the social institution of marriage. All the major religions in South Africa, including Christianity, Islam and Judaism teach that homosexuality is a perversion. Every religious and ethnic group in South Africa accepts that marriage should be a lifelong commitment between a man and a woman.
Marriage is the basic building block of society. It provides stability, nurture, training and protection for the next generation. That is why marriage has always been protected in law. Any undermining of this foundational institution will have disastrous and far-reaching implications for civilisation. We need to stand up and speak out against the radical homosexual agenda and we need to build strong families.
Within a week, workshops will be held to discuss proposed changes to the Marriage Act that will allow two men or two women to "marry" as well as give "shack up" couples - straight or homo - the same benefits as real marriages. A strategy that has worked well for them is to use and capitalize on the problems in traditional African families. They claim that their demands to "open" the definitions of marriage and family are in order to "tolerate" and "accommodate" polygamous and extended traditional African families. They claim that they want to move away from "narrow", "colonial" and "apartheid" definitions that are "biased" toward Christianity and "discriminate against" and "exclude" other "diverse forms of family". The truth is that they do not care about African families, which are already catered for in laws that specifically recognize polygamous African families. They merely use this as an excuse to promote their own evil social engineering agenda.
4. Legalising Child Abuse
Paedophilia: The book mentioned earlier, Defiant Desire, was co-edited by two men who are well-respected and adored in the media and by the ANC government. One wrote a biography for current president, Thabo Mbeki, and the other, Edwin Cameron, was a Constitutional Court judge until he developed full-blown AIDS. Defiant Desire has been trumpeted and heralded by the media and in academic and government circles, yet shockingly this book speaks positively and glowingly of paedophilia.
Even the tragedy of young boys being used as prostitutes on the mines is spoken of positively. One tale of a young boy being used by 24 sex partners in one night is told quite openly and positively. They shamelessly talk about "rent-boys". The book refers to paedophilia as "passing on knowledge" and states that "Sex is more often learned from older boys and men (than peers)." Like the pro-paedophile drives in other countries, it also claims (and I quote), "In each case the early experience with an older male is related as positive and formative."
A story about a priest who sexually abused young boys and then passed them on to other older boys to abuse is not condemned. Instead the priest is described as "unselfish" and they make a blasphemous joking reference to "turn the other cheek". With Cameron, the co-editor of this book, strongly influencing our laws and policy, it is no wonder that the age of consent for sodomy is currently being lowered in our country. In 1996 the work of NAMBLA (Man Boy Love) was being promoted in South Africa by a self-confessed homosexual paedophile, Kevin Bishop.
5. Homo Fascism and Blood Donation
The Equality Project, a vociferous homosexual activist organization, on behalf of a sodomite radio presenter, took up the matter with South Africa's Human Rights Commission (HRC) of sodomites not being allowed to donate blood. The HRC is a government body that investigates "human rights abuses". The HRC ruled in March 2000 that homosexual men have "the constitutional right to donate blood". In a case of political correctness gone mad, the HRC tried to force the SA Blood Transfusion Service to take blood from homosexuals. Under the World Health Organization guidelines, members from high-risk groups like homosexuals cannot donate blood. Blood Transfusion Service deputy director, Dr. Robert Crookes said that he was not aware of any country worldwide - and certainly not in the West - which would accept blood from homosexuals. In most countries, men involved in sodomy in the past 20 years are prohibited from donating blood, even if they test negative for AIDS. Even liberal Holland does not accept organ donations from homosexuals.
So are we getting blood from homosexuals now? Dr Crookes said that the Blood Service would continue to turn high-risk groups away and would have "further discussion with the HRC, to present more medical and scientific data to them and to illustrate the information worldwide that men who have sex with men remain at risk for HIV infection."
6. The Threat to Religious Freedom and to Freedom of Speech
The homosexualists' 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. The stated goal of radical homosexualists is to force all of society - beginning in primary schools - to conform to sexual deviancy.
The gay agenda strategy is first to pose as "victims of discrimination", but once their special rights have been achieved, their goal is to move away from a defensive "victim" argument to an offensive "social constructivism" role that attacks the traditional family and attempts to redefine the basic building block of society. By demanding government funding and public sanction of homosexuality, homosexualists are forcing their beliefs on all of society.
South Africa's Draft Lesbian and Gay Charter demands that:
1. "It shall be unlawful to discriminate against lesbians and gay men in churches, mosques, temples, synagogues or other places of worship. This includes the right to worship in a place of their choice, and the right to be a member of, or a minister of religion in, a religious institution, regardless of sexual orientation.
2. "Lesbian and gay issues shall be openly raised and discussed in religious institutions as a normal and natural variation of human sexuality.
3. "It shall be unlawful to promote homophobia and teachings that present the notion of lesbian/gay behaviour as being sinful."
4. They further want to make speaking against homosexuality in the media illegal with homosexuals having the right to sue;
The Promotion of Equality and Prevention of Unfair Discrimination Act signed into law is a wish list for homosexual activists. Although signed into law in 2000, we praise God that this Act is still not in operation because the state does not have the funds to implement the required "Equality tribunals". This law gives homosexuals extensive "rights" extending to the areas of employment, education, health care, housing and accommodation, "partnerships", provision of goods and services and memberships of private clubs. It threatens the rights of other people to choose in all these areas - to choose who they want to employ, who they want to provide services or accommodation to and even who they want teaching their children. It also threatens freedoms of speech and of association - forbidding one to speak out against homosexuality and they even want to rewrite the rules for membership of clubs, even of churches. Those who are convicted of the need to oppose these, and the many other demands of the pink agenda, are likely to be subjected to much abuse and even legal harassment. If the Equality Act was in operation today, and not hindered by the government's lack of funds, possibly I would not be standing here today.
7. Abusing Taxpayers' Money
So we can see that the homosexual lobby in SA has many allies, especially, the ANC and the collusion of all the other political parties (with the exception of the African Christian Democratic Party). This has filtered down to city councils and other government appointments. The attempt to promote Cape Town as the world's "pink capital" was one result of this. The taxpayer-funded "Pink Map" was sent worldwide to lure sodomites to visit our city.
8. Stranglehold on the Media
The media is now totally sympathetic to the homo movement as we can see from these articles. Viewers have pro-homo material shoved in their faces on television. South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) buys many pro-homo movies and programmes such as Will and Grace from the United States. The South African media is largely intolerant of opinions and beliefs that question the homosexual agenda. Presently, there is little space to discuss or dispute the claims of the sodomites.
"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil, who put darkness for light, and light for darkness." Isaiah 5:20
The Homo-Fascist Attempt at Banning The Pink Agenda:
It is against this background of the radical promotion of privileges for perverts in our country and the vociferous, guilt-manipulating homosexual minority forcing their views on the rest of us that Africa Christian Action published our book The Pink Agenda at the end of 2001, less than two years ago. Christine Mc Cafferty convinced me of the need to produce an exposé of the radical agenda of the homosexualists.
Even before its release, a homosexual group tried to prevent the launch, which was held at a venue near parliament. Another vociferous homosexual organization, the Equality Project, the same organization that tried to force sodomite blood donations, ran on its website an inflammatory article against the book. They labeled us as "intolerant" and "hateful" with "links to the extreme religious fanatical right" (such as Focus on the Family) and myself, Peter Hammond as a "gun runner" to resistance groups battling Marxist and Muslim regimes. They urged fellow homos to complain to the Film and Publications Board and get the book banned.
The next day, Q-online, part of a so-called independent newspaper, the Mail and Guardian, ran a similar article, virtually word for word. They claimed that the article was written by "Own Correspondent"!
The Film and Publications Board (FPB) received a letter of complaint that was virtually the same, and a number more modeled on the same lines. The FPB is the body in South Africa that reviews movies and books etc, including porn, and grades them according to what is age-acceptable. It is rare for them to censor anything, even the vilest of porn.
We were summonsed before a three-member Committee of the FPB. We presented our case. However we got a bizarre ruling. The book was age-restricted to 18s and over, undermining our primary goal of providing schools with a counter to the vociferous mandatory homosexual curriculum in the state schools. It was a scandalous irony that the same government that protects all kinds of obscenity censored genuine academic research. The following reasoning was given:
They said that book was "unscientific" (although over 136 studies are cited, all meticulously referenced). They said that "the bulk of the material is drawn from the United States of America" and implied that it is therefore "largely irrelevant to the situation in South Africa".
They said it was "not documentary in nature" and "the scope of research was very limited" (although we quote over 400 references and have a 34 page appendix).
One quote from the report was, "(T)he book is so vicious it can only reflect the mean spirit of its authors."
The Board also resisted giving us a copy of the report although the media had access to it. It was only after intense pressure from the authors, and after we had had to handle at least ten media interviews on the ruling that we were finally given a copy of the ruling. This was the first time in the world that a book of this kind was censored and the first Christian book to be censored in the new South Africa! The censorship should not have come as such a surprise though, considering that the leader of the Equality Project, Evert Knoesen, who initiated the attack against us, is also a Film and Publications Board Committee member! Knoesen, meanwhile, happily praised the ruling, saying to the media that, "(The Equality Project) believes it illustrates a practical commitment in South African society to implement the values of the Constitution."
Attack the Messenger - Ignore the Issues
The liberal media and homosexual organisations had a field day with this ruling, using the decision against us. Our book was described as "sinister" and "the worst homophobic hate speech ever published…" Emotive, hysterical attacks on the authors, without dealing with the issues raised in the book were the norm. (As for the phony allegations of "hate speech", in our book we specifically spoke against violence by individuals or groups of people against homosexuals.)
But we praise God, we got many hours of media time. More coverage for our book than we could ever have paid for. This included prime time TV coverage, countless hours of radio interviews and talk shows and numerous newspaper articles and interviews.
The media strategy, especially that of the homos', seemed to be: "Attack the messenger, ignore the facts." The homosexual movement in South Africa therefore proved the thesis of our book - that homosexuals are intolerant and aggressive in forcing their agenda - and they helped us market our book widely! An endorsement on the back of the book proved to be prophetic, "The authors are probably in for a lot of flack for being brave enough to speak with authority on a subject where political correctness is considered more important than truth."
One article in the Afrikaans press was a particularly vindictive and sarcastic personal attack and character assignation. It was also full of factual inaccuracies and false quotes. They refused to allow us to reply to the article and we appealed to the Press Ombudsman. He dismissed our complaint. After a long and lengthy drawn out process, we appealed against that decision and won the appeal. The newspaper concerned was forced to print our Right of Reply with the judge's ruling.
Freedom of speech and toleration of dissent are a fruit of Christianity. Homosexual activists have used this freedom of speech to promote their pink agenda to the exclusion of any other. The homosexual lobby is jealous for the loyalty and approval of all. No longer satisfied with freedom or tolerance, they now demand approval and conformity.
If you think that the homosexual agenda won't affect you or your family - you're wrong. As this book, The Pink Agenda, documents, the homosexualists want to transform the very fabric of society, they want to homosexualise the schools and the next generation, and they want government funding (your taxes) to do it.
Unfortunately, many in the homosexual movement are intolerant of any views opposing their own. Name calling is a poor alternative to debate and those who dare to disagree with the pink agenda are liable to be labeled as "bigots", "homophobes" and worse. Like economic freedom, intellectual freedom is good, necessary and healthy. We need a free and open debate on the homosexual agenda.
Among the questions we asked, and dealt with, in The Pink Agenda were:
- Does medical science support the claim that homosexuals are born that way and cannot change?
- Are homosexuals 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 are the health risks involved in homosexual and lesbian activities?
- Why do people involved in homosexuality and sodomy have an average life expectancy almost half that of other people?
- Why are they 24 times more likely to commit suicide than other people?
- Why are so-called "committed" homosexual relationships and partnerships so short lived and unfaithful?
- Why are those involved in homosexuality 10 to 20 times more likely to sexually molest a child than so-called "straights"?
- Does the homosexual agenda actually include the lowering of the age of consent for sex and sodomy with children, especially boys, and the normalisation of paedophilia?
- Does the homosexual agenda involve using South African schools as gay recruitment centres?
- Does the homosexual agenda aim to threaten freedom of speech and freedom of belief even in churches and other religious institutions?
It was these very issues that the Gay and Lesbian Equality Project and the FPB evidently did not want discussed. So much for free speech, especially considering that the homo lobby has been one of the most vociferous groups calling for freedom of speech, when it comes to promoting their own agenda and porn of course!
We were advised not to appeal against the decision of the FPB, but we went ahead and appealed. A completely independent Review Board was tasked with handling our appeal. We won the appeal!
The Review Board said in its ruling in May 2002: "This conclusion is grounded particularly in the Review Board's opinion that the publication could be deemed, if not a bona fide scientific document, then at the least a bona fide discussion, argument or opinion on either a matter pertaining to religion, belief or conscience or of public interest. As this is catered for in the Act, it behoves the Board to uphold this provision."
As regards the Review Board's decision to lift the under-18 age restriction, the report states "taking into account the nature of the publication, it would be difficult to prove that any harm would be caused to any person under the age of 18 who has access to it." The Board agreed with our argument that (in the Board's words), "The dilemma that any imposition of an age restriction would pose is that we could very well end up with the converse demand that the homosexual community shall not present its case to any person under the age of 18."
Who is Standing for Righteousness?
The institution of the church in South Africa is still largely Christian, but serious backsliders, of which the Anglican is probably the worst. The dean of the Cape Town Cathedral, situated right next to Parliament, is an out-and-out homosexual and even invites cross-dressers to present "sermons" there. Honorary Archbishop Desmond Tutu, well-known I am sure to many of you here, is also pro-homosexual and in debates against us on radio and discussion panels has categorically said that homosexuality is not a sin. The SA Council of Churches has also promoted pro-homosexual laws at parliament.
The most prominent and public position against homosexuality has fallen on us in Africa Christian Action as few others have been willing to take a public stand. Our book was the first of its kind printed in South Africa. We praise God that numerous Christian TV programmes, radio stations and publications are prepared to deal with the issue truthfully, though usually not in as direct a way as we would like. Many churches have taken a strong stand. Some have changed their constitutions to make rules around membership tighter. Whether the courts will respect this has yet to be seen.
I believe that the man in the street, the overwhelming majority of South Africans, disagree with homosexuality as demonstrated by the strong support we received when taking on the stand against the promotion of Cape Town as a "Pink City". Even Muslims were amongst the supporters in our protest. Amongst our allies fighting against the pink agenda are Christians for Truth and The African Christian Democratic Party. But we need more to join and a stronger and more decisive voice from Christian leadership.
The last piece in The Pink Agenda is written by a former homosexual who was converted to Christ and is a friend of ours. Homosexuals are deceived. They all too often become diseased, and then dead. Their life expectancy is only about half of that of heterosexuals. One of our aims has been to reach out to them with the love of Christ and the Word of God - to offer them a way of escape - to survive and find forgiveness and freedom in Christ - before it's too late. We need to prevent the spread of homosexuality as it spreads its tentacles over our city and country snaring more and more young people in its web. With this in mind, we have organized protests against the homosexual agenda and outreaches to homosexuals. We have held prayer vigils, outreaches and literature evangelisation against "the gay olympics", "gay tourism", homo-adoptions, at the gay pride march and at a huge annual homo party which had "marriage" as the theme, amongst others.
We have encouraged and equipped Christians to respond particularly on the marriage issue and are engaged in on-going attempts to get Christians involved. A percentage of every book sold is donated to TRAILBlazers, a local organisation that counsels people who want to leave the homosexual lifestyle. Since the perverts tried to prevent young people reading our book, and we successfully defeated them, we are now running a project to get sponsored copies into school libraries. There are 50 000 public schools in South Africa. We would appreciate your help with this project as we find that once we get them to the librarians they are placed on the shelves accessible to students doing research. We are also distributing sponsored copies to SA Members of Parliament and pastors. Please also take copies of our pamphlets. There is one explaining their battle to get our book banned. Copies of this presentation are also available. Please also vote against intolerance by buying a copy of our historical book, The Pink Agenda.
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children." Hosea 4:6
"Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." 1 Cor 6: 9-10
"God's Wrath Against Mankind
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the Godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without any excuse.
For although they know God they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.
Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator - who is for ever praised. Amen.
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with ever kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful, they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are senseless, faithless, heartless, and ruthless. Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things, but also approve of those who practise them." Rom 1:18-32
"When I say to the wicked, 'You shall surely die,' and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand.
Yet if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul." Ezekiel 3:18-19

Martin Luther said, "If I profess with the loudest voice and the clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, then I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Him. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved; and to be steady on all the battlefront besides is mere flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point."
