Letter sent to Belfast Telegraph 25 November 2014, not published.

Dear Sir

The corrupt use of the Holy Bible, God's word by Mr Andrew McFarland Campbell of Faith and Pride (24 November 2014) to try and justify the sinful behaviour of homosexuality and the God hating parody of same-sex marriage is neither Christian nor Biblical. It is gay propaganda.

The published agenda of homosexual activists is to create a society where the true Biblical values of what is good and what is evil are inverted, as demonstrated in Andrew Campbell's letter, and then legislated out of existence, as exemplified in the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013.

The meaning of a word is often defined by its context and sometimes more than one is needed to give that meaning in a translation. 1 Corinthians 6: 9-10 is a warning to all that the unrighteous (those who promote or do sinful, unjust and deceptive behaviour will not inherit the kingdom of God). A list of sins then follows including fornication, adultery, "effeminate" (catamite or male prostitute), "nor abusers of themselves with mankind" (aka homosexuality).

The same word referring to homosexuality ("for them that defile themselves with mankind") is also translated in the same way in 1 Timothy 1:10 where a similar catalogue of sins is given.

The concerted attempt by homosexual activists to present a revisionist God hating version of Biblical teaching is evidence of their reprobate (unfit) mind Romans 1:28.

A Christian is a follower of Jesus Christ, who recognises their need of the Saviour from their sinful and rebellious state and have a God given desire to repent (rethink) their way in life and to live righteously as God demands. God states that homosexual is a sin. There is no pride in sin, but there is salvation from sin to all those who follow the way of Jesus Christ.

Yours sincerely
