"Gay is Not the New Black"

I have repeatedly said that sexual behavior is not equivalent to ethnicity, yet the mantra of the homosexual movement is to identify with the civil rights struggle of the 1960s and beyond.

And some uninformed are buying it. I continue to get email from people, some very hateful, accusing me of being a racist for not accepting the gay agenda as equivalent to the civil rights movement.

I had not reported this story earlier this spring, but had read it, because of my interest and many years of active involvement in the National Religious Broadcasters Association.

However, I continue to hear from those who either actually believe or are seeking to cause others to believe, that gay is the new black.

I believe every Christian and conservative should familiarize themselves with what Pastor Voddie Baucham told the National Religious Broadcasters Convention back in February.

Earlier this year pastor and cultural apologist, Voddie Baucham, challenged christian broadcasters at their national convention to not buy into the "gay is the new black" propaganda, but to remain committed to defending biblical marriage.

Baucham, an African-American, said, "I'm insulted that people equate not just a sinful behavior but a behavior that's a special category of sin called abomination with the level of melanin in my skin," then proceeded to tell the broadcasters how we got to where we are. And why they and many pastors feel uncomfortable addressing this issue.

He told the broadcasters that they are often nervous, even afraid when the subject comes up. He said you squirm in your seats and try to prove you don't hate gay people by saying you have gay friends or family members.

He said the reason for the discomfort is that homosexual activists have "co-opted where now, we actually believe gay is the new black and we actually believe homosexual marriage is a civil rights issue."

Pastor Baucham said the discomfort "is an intentional result of an aggressive homosexual agenda that started over two decades ago."

He explained the process and cautioned the NRB audience, representing most of the religious broadcasters in America, not to fall victim to three common attacks in the homosexual agenda.

He also lamented that black leaders are providing "cover" for gay activists to play the race card instead of giving a legitimate reason for their demands.

He said, "There is nothing more loving than calling a person to repent of their sins," reminding America's religious broadcasters that according to Ezekiel 33, "The blood will be required on their hands if they don't tell the wicked man to turn from his ways."

He outlined the three pronged gay agenda that has successfully gotten us to where we are. I have linked the story and his explanation.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Active. Be Blessed.
