“I kissed a girl, and I liked it…”

Right now, homosexual marriage and homosexual rights are hot topics. It has been around for a very, very long time and now has been given more leeway. As a Christian, this scares me. This is something that has brought the whole world to a whole new, higher level of immorality and sin.

But, what is so bad about marrying a same sex partner and having couple rights? It’s an easy question to answer from a Christian perspective – the Bible says it is wrong. There.

Leviticus 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

Leviticus 20:13 “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”

Romans 1: 26-27 “(26) For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. (28) And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;”

Then for those who aren’t Christians, allow me to go into more details – It is not natural.

No one is born a homosexual. There is no gene that says, “Hey, this individual is gonna be a homosexual!”  Just like no one is born with a gene that says, “This dude is going to be a paedophile, a rapist, a murderer, a vegan, a Christian, a Buddhist, etc…”

What happens is that a person chooses to be a lesbian/gay. Homosexuality is a preference, a perversion of nature.  Just as bestiality is.

And the homosexuals are screaming for rights. Please, do not bring up that picture of those African-Americans having protests for civil rights. That is a completely different thing – they wanted to be treated as human beings, and rightfully so. What homosexuals want is to make their life easier so that they can be recognised as a couple, to buy property, insurance, and what a normal heterosexual couple would have.

If various states or countries were to allow this, then why not we also make child marriages easier too? And by child, I mean twelve and younger, as is relatively common in Middle East? Why not make it legal for a human to marry a goat? Why not remove all the laws that prohibit necrophilia? Why not allow a father to divorce his wife and then marry his own daughter?

I may seem harsh, comparing homosexuality to all the rest of what seems like a worse offense. But, there is no such thing as a “worser” offense in God’s eyes. If you sin, it means you have sinned. That’s that, end of discussion.

The reason why the LGBT movement have to be so aggressive and rough is mainly this – they can only recruit they cannot reproduce. Can a woman and another woman, after having sex, produce a baby? What about a man and another man, can they make a baby and give birth? No.

Just gather up all the LGBTs and stick them on an island. Visit them about a hundred years later and the population would have decreased drastically. Sure, some of the couples might have shared their spouses with the opposite sex couples so that they can have children. But, there is no guarantee that the child that is born would be a homosexual. Just as how, in this world where the majority of the population is straight, they still manage to raise children who turn out to be gay.

So, yes, I may sound harsh. But, sin is not something to be taken lightly, and I will not take the subject of homosexuality lightly.

Members of a Church

Having attended Baptist churches since I was born, I have noticed there are a few characters in church. If you are visiting a Baptist church, or curious about one, here are a few pointers – oops, I mean, people – that you can look out for!

The owl: This is usually a male. His usual spot in the church is at the front seat, or, as close as he can get to the preaching – so near, he can feel the spit coming for the pastor. If there is the slightest noise, or distraction, he will turn his head to look at the source. It doesn’t matter if you are sitting a few rows behind him. His ultrasonic ears can pick up the slightest disturbance in the sound waves; his eyes can pinpoint the exact location; and, his head can spin 180 degrees to look at you. Never attempt to sit next to one, unless you want The Owl to peck at you.

The curious cat: Usually a lady. If you want any information from her regarding anything under church matters, she is your to-go gal! However, be warned, the method she gets her information from, is by asking other people. Therefore, be careful when she stealthily sneaks up to you (very much like a cat sneaking up on a mouse) and begins asking you what seems like very, harmless questions – or, sometimes, an outright “inquisition. The Curious Cat is a walking Wikipedia.

The smiley face: This is the person who always has this smile super glued onto their face. You will have a sneaking suspicion whenever you see the person. “What make the smile stay there? Should I call for some medical attention?” Sometimes, you might feel like telling the person, “I just got told that I only have one year to live!” and see what their reaction would be. Although, try not to be disappointed when they just continue to smile at you!  🙂

The von Trapp family: This is almost like a militarily run family. In this family, they might have five kids all more. They are never late for church, even if they live an hour’s journey away. And you will always wonder, “How on earth do they do that?! Do they have a magic flying carpet or something?” Their kids come in looking freshly scrubbed and clean – sometimes. Each member of the family if probably involved in some kind of ministry. If each kid were to get married, produce another von Trapp family, and continued to attend the same church, you can be sure that they will soon overpopulate the entire church.

Santa Claus: This person has an endless supply of gifts. You will have a sneaking suspicion that this person is actually Santa Claus in disguise, what with the amount of gifts they hand out each year. You will live in constant fear of anticipating having to hear the news that they have gone bankrupt. But, rest assured, it will never happen, I think.

Mr. Lame: Usually a guy and unmarried. Cracks all sorts of lame jokes, and think he is quite funny. After just half an hour with the person, you will start to know why he is not married. Nothing else needed to be said here!

Okay, I know this is a satire. But, to tell the truth, even though I can get quite irritated with some people in church, church will not be church without them. Each of us has a part to play, as it says in 1 Corinthians 12. Here is a snippet:

1 Cor 12:18-20 “But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.19) And if they were all one member, where were the body? 20) But now are they many members, yet but one body.

Imagine how boring church would be, without the variety of characters. We would all be like clones, and the church would live a humdrum live. Take time to get to know the different members in a church. You never know how God can use them to bless you, or/and vice-versa!
