Bible Lawsuit

Wednesday, August 6, 2008 5 comments

Article from One News Now:

Pro-family advocates say Christians should get used to legal harassment such as the lawsuit a homosexual activist recently filed against two Bible publishers.

Bradley LaShawn Fowler of Canton, Michigan, does not like the fact that the Bibles produced by Zondervan and Thomas Nelson Publishers both accurately convey God's prohibition against homosexual behavior. So he is suing in federal court, seeking $10 million from Thomas Nelson and $60 million from Zondervan.

Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, says Bible-believing Christians had better get ready for more of this type of sniping. "Obviously, this is a frivolous publicity stunt, but this is a portent of things to come," he warns.

"We know that the homosexual activists are now targeting, essentially, born-again Christians and committed Catholics and Mormons who oppose their agenda. They're out to re-write the Bible, to say that the Bible really does not condemn homosexual practice, which it obviously does," says LaBarbera. "Ultimately, we believe they'll be doing more and more of these lawsuits against Christians and Christian companies."

LaBarbera says the suit reminds him of British actor and homosexual activist Sir Ian McKellen, who has admitted to ripping pages that contain scriptures condemning homosexuality out of Gideon Bibles in hotel rooms. "The fact is whether you rip the pages out or not, or whether you sue, or whether you pass a law against it, the Word of God still stands," he emphasizes. "And God's authority on that issue still stands, no matter what man does."

The judge in the case has denied Fowler's request for a court-appointed attorney, saying the court had "very genuine concerns" about the legitimacy of the claims in the lawsuit.


Are you concerned about the future perception of homosexuality?
Is it already a problem since some Christian denominations accept homosexuality?
Do you foresee it being a crime to preach God's condemnation of homosexuality?

    I'm amazed by Christians who say homosexuality isn't a sin. People don't like to talk about the parts of the bible that attest to God's judgement, so they pretend it doesn't happen. The flood couldn't have happened. Sodom and Gomorrah? Myth. "God wouldn't do that". If there's one thing I've learned, it's don't challenge God with what he would or could do.

    Homosexuals think Christians look down on them specifically- when in reality we just are more apt at recognizing sin. There are however, those who make attacking homosexuality a bigger focus than their walk with God.

    The problem comes in when you have people protesting homosexuality and overtly condemning homosexuals. We have to remember that God hates all sin, including the sins performed by heterosexuals.

    Other issues arise with homosexuality- it is a sexually promiscuous culture. It brings with it every type of sexual immorality.

    As a culture we are becoming more and more accepting of sin of every type. As we become more and more appeasing to evil, it becomes easier and easier to decieve believers and non-believers alike. Suddenly things that are sinful in nauture don't seem so bad anymore. It's not going to be very hard for the Anti-Christ to decieve the masses when the time comes.

    Hey - terrific blog that you have. Wondering if you have heard of a unique message for homosexuals that's on Google and titled "God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up" which uses a kind of reverse psychology to drive home points. The author says he has only love and concern for homos while opposing their deadly lifestyles. You might check it out.

    And the queers wonder why no one likes them when they're honest. Even when I wasn't a Christian, I largely couldn't stand homosexuals because I saw them as nascent JBTs with the way they were quite willing to force you to agree with them. Small surprise that so many of the original Nazis, prior to the "Night of the Long Knives" were closet flamers.

    One of the challenges with dealing with them is that their chosen identity is sin. They have usually chosen to make their homosexuality their identity, and that's key to why they often react in such wild and inexplicable ways to anything Jewish or Christian.
