“A drug-resistant strain of potentially deadly bacteria has moved beyond the borders of U.S. hospitals and is being transmitted among gay men during sex, researchers said on Monday.
“They said methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, is beginning to appear outside hospitals in San Francisco, Boston, New York and Los Angeles.”
“‘Once this reaches the general population, it will be truly unstoppable,’ said Binh Diep, a researcher at the University of California, San Francisco who led the study” per Reuters.
Yet who encourages homosexual recreational sex?
Included in that hurrah is the Episcopal Church of America, United Church of Christ (Congregational), and the Universalist Society, as well as segments within the Roman Catholic Church, United Methodist Church, American Baptist Church, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.
Included in that support are politicians such as Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, both seeking the highest office in the Republic.
Included in that endorsement are theological liberals throughout the nation’s seminaries, universities and colleges as well as local schools.
Those who denigrate the biblical data regarding God’s abhorrence of homosexual activity thereby aid in the furthering of widespread, deadly diseases. It is illogical; nevertheless, it is fact.
Those who affirm the biblical data are often considered a cultural lag and intellectually inferior as well as bigoted and unChristian.
“According to the study, at this point, homosexual men are 13 times more likely to contract the potentially deadly, drug-resistant strain of Staph infection, but the fear is that, because the infection is spread via skin-to-skin contact, homosexual men may soon spread it to the general population.
“Matt Barber, Policy Director for Cultural issues with Concerned Women for America (CWA), said, ‘The medical community has known for years that homosexual conduct, especially among males, creates a breeding ground for often deadly disease. In recent years we have seen a profound resurgence in cases of HIV/AIDS, syphilis, rectal gonorrhea and many other STDs among those who call themselves “gay.”
‘“The human body is quite callous in how it handles mistreatment and the perversion of its natural functions. When two men mimic the act of heterosexual intercourse with one another, they create an environment, a biological counterfeit, wherein disease can thrive. Unnatural behaviors beget natural consequences.
“’In recent years our culture has adopted a laissez faire attitude toward sexual deviancy. Television shows like "Will and Grace" glorify the homosexual lifestyle while our children are taught in schools that homosexuality is a perfectly healthy, alternative sexual “orientation.” “Stay out of our bedrooms!” we’re often commanded by militant “gay” activists.
“’Well, now the dangerous and possibly deadly consequence of what occurs in those bedrooms is spilling over into the general population. It’s not only frightening, it’s infuriating’” per Concerned Women for America.
The Bible is clear:
Leviticus 18:22: "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination."
Leviticus 20:13: "If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them."
Romans 1:18-32: "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. . .For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God, or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools. . .
"Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, that their bodies might be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. . .
"For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire towards one another, men with men committed indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
"God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, malice; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice. . .without understanding. . . and, although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them."
I Corinthians 6:9: "Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived, neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God."
Yet such groups as the worldwide Metropolitan Community Church twists the exegesis of such passages in order to allow for homosexual activity. Liberals in other denominations follow suit with such purposeful misinterpretation in order to satisfy the homosexual practice."
