Tennessee county school board meets -- but backs off on removing “gay” club from high school. LGBT activists celebrating. Local parents are livid and fighting back.
These groups are out to destroy Christianity. As Brian Camenker of Mass Resistance recently reported, "state and national LGBT activists have targeted Franklin County, TN, because of the religious nature of that area....A seasoned homosexual activist from Alabama described how he’s been organizing the push in Franklin County. He said they have 'more plans for Franklin County' and that they’re preparing to force 'gay' clubs into all the neighboring counties next."
It's no coincidence that Christian bakers, wedding photographers, florists, etc. are consistently sued to provide services for sodomy. Any opposition will be crushed! They will portray any parents who oppose them as homophobic hate-mongers who would have lynched blacks during the Civil Rights movement and want to kill homosexuals. It's a slander but in a dumbed-down sex-saturated culture many buy the lie.
Anyone who attended Palm Sunday Mass today and listened to the reading of the Passion narrative know how an evil network attains its goal. You lie, hire false witnesses, hold your hearings in secret, bribe the betrayers, manipulate the mob, It's all about crucifying the Christians on the cross of political correctness. Unless we have courageous apostles willing to allow themselves to be nailed and crowned with thorns, the evil "LGBTQ" agenda will succeed -- at least for a time. Only be accepting martyrdom, even bloody martyrdom, can we plant the seeds of revival.
In an interview with Life Site News, Bishop Bruskewitz recently called the homosexual onslaught "very devastating." He described as astonishing the infiltration into society by a small minority of a "perversion that is repulsive to the normal human being." He called the link to human rights "preposterous." Bruskewitz believes that "there's going to be every effort made to destroy everything Christian that would in the least oppose this kind of degeneration." As an example he mentioned that military chaplains are fearful of what will happen if two Catholic lesbians come demanding marriage. He called it "quite possible" that a chaplain who refused could be court-martialed and sentenced to 40-50 years in Leavenworth. The bishop expects serious persecution in the near future. When asked what the laity need to do, he said, "Be brave and strong."
How do we become brave and strong? Pray and practice courage in the small challenges. Are your adult children rebelling and making bad choices? Pray and think of a loving way to speak to them. Let's not shrink from public witness to our faith? If someone uses Jesus' name in vain in your presence, would you be too embarrassed to make the sign of the cross? Let us show Jesus we are not ashamed to reflect our love for Him every chance we get, from saying grace in restaurants to praying the rosary in public. If we practice in the small things, when the big challenges come we'll be ready for them. St. Joan of Arc, St. Barbara, and St. Thomas More intercede for us that we might be brave, faithful, and true no matter what persecution comes our way.
