I almost hate to do this article, because I don't want to join the crowd in writing about nothing but homosexuality.
I believe it is a sin. I also believe there is no way you are going to "make" an unregenerated homosexual person who has never been saved leave the lifestyle. This has to come about via CONVICTION via the Holy Spirit, they need healing for the psycho-social and sin [theirs and others] that have even led them to that place. Remember the Dominionists seek CONTROL over people not CONVICTION via their salvation.
5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Let the culture warriors think they can browbeat the homosexuals into submission, all they are doing is ensuring more hatred from homosexuals for what they think is Christianity. Are homosexuals any less then other sinners? We were all wicked sinners before salvation. Why is homosexuality the GREATER sin then adultery or sex out of wedlock? As I write that, ask yourself why NEWT GINGRICH and his three marriages got positive write-ups in the evangelical media?
While I do support some outreach ministries for homosexuals, if done right, I think "Leave the homosexuals alone, as you use them to make yourself out to be "superior" and turn them even MORE against the Christian gospel!" There are people so obsessed with homosexuality even in the Christian world, some will use the terms to insult others. If they do not like a view or do not consider you to be submissive enough to their point of view, yes they will use insults usually used to described homosexuals.
Lately I am wondering why is the Christiandom world so OBSESSED with the HOMOSEXUALS? Let me count the gay-oriented articles on Christian Post today. It is May 24, 2012:

What the Bible Really Still Says About Homosexuality
Do any of you get the feeling there is a bit of obsession going on out there about the gays?. I do admit there are some militant homosexuals with an agenda, we know the new world order advances homosexuality every chance they get via television programming. We know Obama is throwing his usual bones to the progressives, and using gay marriage to deflect from the failing economy for votes. They WANT to sell homosexuality to the masses. So why are the Christian websites so focused on this one sin? Why are the culture warriors beating this drum to the point of irritation? Remember how I told you how the Hegelian Dialectic works?
"Remember here the Hegelian Dialectic is used, where they take over both sides of an issue. They got people polarized between a divide between both sides, but are really taking them ALL to the same place. They create false divisions, while leading the people closer and closer to where they want them. Ever hear of the phrase Thesis, Antithesis, Synthesis? It is used all the time, to manipulate people and outcomes. How it is done is to first put down the goal they want to achieve and then in opposition they create outrage for a specific problem leading people to move closer to where they want them. Another way that is more simple to put it, and a phrase I use often here, is TWO SIDES AGAINST THE MIDDLE. Here is a pictured example:"
The more they stress homosexuality and focus on it, the more MAINSTREAM it becomes. The more it is advanced, the more people get desensitized to homosexuality. Young people see and hear about homosexuality constantly even beyond the media, so it is put on the table. In fact I have seen that within 10 years, most people only know very few homosexuals, but then as time passed, looking at the media one would think their numbers are far higher.So something that applies to only 1-2% of the population becomes this huge issue for everyone to be concerned about. Whatever happened to treating people as people first to bring them the gospel? Many of us know homosexuals. I have witnessed to them. I see them as "people" first, and whatever their sins are second. I worry more about my own sins then theirs and my first priority should be getting the gospel to them.
When I see something like this, I think Hegelian Dialectic really is in full swing. This type of thing I believe is used to blur the edges of morality, and have more people not want to associate themselves with those horrible "Christians", so those sincere Christians who do speak the truth in love about homosexuality find themselves more and more out on the fringes. It shuts people down from hearing the gospel and questioning choices they are involved in under the conviction of God's Word and the Holy Spirit.
Pastor: Build Electrified Fence For Gays So They ‘Die Out’
This is sick. Does he want to put other sinners in the fence too, every person that has cheated on his spouse? Every person who has had a lustful thought? Everyone who has lived in sin? That would be a huge crowd. But for some reason, types like this focus only on the homosexuals as sinners. The other teachings of Jesus Christ get thrown overboard.
2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Culture warriors like this have done no favors to anyone either but in their own way have only helped to make some homosexuals more militant in defenses in their opposition. I find myself thinking is this stuff being done on purpose? I tend to think so. The religious right while ignoring many other sins, that reach to the skies from new world order advancing wars, corruption, greed, promiscuity in the heterosexual world, adultery, keeps banging the homosexual drum to the extreme. It's like they want to talk about nothing else. I keep thinking what about a person's own sin? What about teaching victory over sin in Jesus Christ? What ever happened to love for sinners? What about the evil taking over this world? What about the evils of even the growing police state and tyranny? The homosexual obessesion serves their agenda. Here too in retaliation, the emergent and other crowds, can start watering down biblical teachings about homosexuality and redefining homosexuality for the church, I covered this in more detail in the "Unchristian" book article. All the extreme views and focus on homosexuality by the religious right crowd, will help others REFORMULATE the Christian's view of homosexuality!
