AFA:s teokratiska principprogram

American Family Association är en stark och mäktig lobbyorganisation i USA som bland annat uppmanar till bojkott av företag som erbjuder sina homosexuella anställda samma villkor som heterosexuella. De har glatt sig särskilt åt de tiotusentals män och kvinnor som fått sparken från Ford, vilket de hävdar har med den bojkott de tagit initiativ till att göra.

Här sammanfattar organisationens ordförande Don Wildmon sina principer för arbetet mot The Homosexual Agenda. Jag tänkte skriva kommentarer på punkterna, men upptäckte att det räckte att markera de mest bisarra delarna med fetstil. Det är skrämmande att se hur stark ställning de fundamentalistiska teokraterna har i världens mäktigaste nation. Där deras inflytande går in, går demokratin ut.

PRINCIPLES WHICH GUIDE American Family Associations OPPOSITION TO THE HOMOSEXUAL AGENDA

1. The scripture declares that homosexuality is unnatural and sinful. It is a sin grievous to God and repulsive to Christians because it rejects God's design for mankind as heterosexual beings.

2. Though there may be many influences in a person's life, the root of homosexuality is a sinful heart. Therefore, homosexuals have only one hope of being reconciled to God and rejecting their sinful behavior - faith in Jesus Christ alone. AFA seeks to use every opportunity to promote and encourage the efforts of ex-homosexual ministries and organizations.

3. It is the duty of individual Christians and Christ's Church corporately to bring the gospel to homosexuals and to speak out against the acceptance of sin in our culture.

4. We oppose the homosexual movement's efforts to convince our society that their behavior is normal because we fear the judgement of God on our nation.

5. The homosexual movement is a progressive outgrowth of the sexual revolution of the past 40 years and will lead to the normalization of even more deviant behavior.

6. The homosexual movement's promotion of same-sex marriage undermines the God-ordained institution of marriage and family which is the foundation of all societies.

7. We oppose the efforts of the homosexual movement to force its agenda on our sentiments in schools, government, business and workplaces through law, public policy and media. Our strong opposition is a reaction to the homosexual movement's aggressive strategies.

8. We oppose the effort to convince our culture that because individuals participate in homosexual behavior, they have earned the right to be protected like racial and other minority groups.

9. While we are resolute in our opposition to the homosexual movement, we recognize the importance of maintaining Christian integrity in all our efforts. By God's grace we will reject the temptation to become bitter or hateful in our words or actions.

10. Finally, we seek faithfulness more than victory. We work with the confidence that the one true Sovereign God of the Bible will fulfill His purposes.

Jag gillar speciellt punkt fyra som gör Gud till terrorist.

Just det. Den mest avslöjande punkten.

Då betyder det att en polis som straffar en som gjort ett brott är en terrorist. Den var fin! ;-)

Inte alls, Bengt. En polis straffar inte en hel nation på grund av en enskild brottsligns gärningar. Det gör den Gud AFA fruktar.
