Andrei You are the light of the world

A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.

Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

My friends next month in Auckland we will be celebating a pagan festival dedicated in honour to the Gods of sexual hedonism. This festival has been in part funded with public money (yours).

Politicians will bow before this God's altar including our Prime Minister and if the precidence of his predecessor is any guide the leader of the opposition at one of the major festival events, the "Big Gay Out". An event held not uncoincidentily on the Lord's Day, the Sabbath, Sunday the 9th of February 2013

Another event, a street parade will take place on Saturday, February 16th - mark this date.

Later this year our parliament will rewrite our marriage laws and customs, and they will do it because they serve neither us nor our Lord, they worship at the altar of political expediency.

So I am suggesting that we ask our Bishops, Priests, Pastors and Ministers to lead us all in an hour long service of "Prayer for the repentence our Nation" Starting at 3pm on Saturday February 16th as a direct counter to and counter cultural response to the street parade being held in Auckland and the values it promotes.

Let us open our Churches and ask our family, relatives, friends and neighbours to join us there, in this prayer, that we may turn back from the abyss we are being led towards.

We will be mocked but that mocking is nothing but the empty braying of jackasses.

Let's get this done.

Sorry to say, but last time I checked, homosexuals were allowed to also be Christians.

That they organise events to raise awareness in society that they are also human beings is not something I am concerned about.

The secondary issues about politics and funding are exactly that - secondary issues.

Hi Seán,

Andrei is no way saying that homosexuals are not allowed to be Christian - where did you get that from in his post?

Gay pride parades are not about "raise awareness in society that they are also human beings". I've been to a number of them in my younger years in Sydney, and from memory they are very much in your face type exhibitions, or as Andrei states in his post, "a pagan festival dedicated in honour to the Gods of sexual hedonism". If they were just simple marches, there would not be a problem with them.

Would you be happy if public money funded Boobs on Bikes parades in New Zealand?

Yes Sean, where did I in anyway imply "gay people can't be Christians" - that is the sort of thing that pollutes this debate, claims of "intolerance" pulled out of thin air.

When it comes down to it "gays" do not have to "raise awareness" of their existance, you cannot watch TV without meeting sympathetic "gay" characters of heroic stature.

People are described as "openly gay" the whole time, news readers, and so forth.

When was the last time you heard someone identified as Catholic or Christian, how many "openly Catholic" nwsreaders do we have?

Someone is only identified as Catholic or Christian when the person making that idntification wants to bash their views and use it as a negative to imply ignorant bigotry.

Andrei said...

One more thing Sean, if the "gay community" can "raise awareess" with their parades and festivals, what is wrong with a Christian suggesting that Christians, do a little of their own "awarenss raising"

I see two issues here:
1) Current Post: Maybe it wasn't explicitly implied that gays could not be Christian but I read between the lines. It is not about judging an entire group just because some are "in-your-face".

2) Andrei - you really digress. But no argument from me on newsreader preference for favoured minorities. Christian and Catholic help to the less fortunate occurs every day, in fact it's in real-time, but for sure you will never hear about it.

Seán,

Your no 1. is what I expect from our enemies, not from our friends. Friends give each other the benefit of the doubt and ask if they are not sure of something, rather than assume the worst.

Seán said...

In that case, my apologies. It seems I drew a long bow on this occasion for that point.
