In July 2010 we commented on the bullying and gross violation of academic principles adopted by Eastern Michigan University (EMU) in expelling a Christian graduate student, Julea Ward, for her religious belief that homosexuality is morally wrong. Now there is an update that has overturned that ruling:
"The Sixth Circuit has ruled in favour of Christian graduate student Julea Ward, who almost three years ago was expelled from a university counselling program for her religious beliefs.
In a strongly worded opinion earlier today, the Sixth U.S. Circuit of Appeals reversed a district court decision in favour of Eastern Michigan University, sending it back for trial along with this message: "A reasonable jury could conclude that Ward's professors ejected her from the counseling program because of hostility toward her speech and faith ...." (OneNewsNow, 27 January 2012)
GLBTQ's crave approbation from society for their unnatural sexual behaviour, and if you don't give it to them they will use any means possible to destroy your life and your reputation, as the politically correct academics at EMU have done to Julea Ward.
If GLBTQ's get their way in the UK by making same sex relationships equivalent to heterosexual marriage, it takes only a little imagination to think about what will happen if you teach your kids that the Bible says that marriage is between a man and a woman, and homosexuality is an abomination - persecution is already happening.
Also, as was recently commented by an academic on a BBC Radio 4 programme, if same sex marriage is achieved in law, what stops polygamy becoming legal or sibling marriage being legal, or anything else for that matter?
Jesus did mention homosexuality
Finally, for all those GLBTQ activist bloggers and comment writers who say that Jesus never taught or mentioned homosexuality, consider these verses which cite the words of Jesus Christ:
Mark 6:11 KJV – "And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city."
Sodom and Gomorrha were totally destroyed for their total depravity and the sin of homosexuality (Genesis 13:13 and Genesis 19). Jesus Christ is making a direct reference to the sin (breaking of God's law) of homosexuality and the judgement executed on those who practised it. He also says it will be even worse for people who continue in their sin and reject Him as their personal Saviour and God.
Mat 19:3-6 KJV - The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?
And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made [them] at the beginning made them male and female,
And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? (Genesis 2:24)
Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Here Jesus is discussing divorce, but making reference to the establishment of marriage at the dawn of creation. How can GLBTQ's seek approbation for their marriage in a Church before God when homosexuality is a gross sin and marriage has and always will be between a man and woman? It is a really fearful thing to do, to call God and Jesus Christ a liar and to expect God to bless your sin.
Jesus also said "If ye love me, keep my commandments." John 14:15. So how can a GLBTQ person call themselves a Christian if they openly want to sin and disobey the commandments of Jesus Christ? It is just a complete and total delusion in the quest for approbation of their same sex relationship.
