From CNN:

A national Christian organization will stop sponsoring an annual event that encourages school students to "counter the promotion of homosexual behavior" because the event has become too divisive and confrontational, the group's president told CNN on Wednesday.

"All the recent attention to bullying helped us realize that we need to equip kids to live out biblical tolerance and grace while treating their neighbors as they'd like to be treated, whether they agree with them or not," said Alan Chambers, President of Exodus International, the group that sponsored the event this year.

Called the Day of Truth, the annual April event has been pushed by influential conservative Christian groups as a way to counter to the annual Day of Silence, an event promoted by gay rights advocates to highlight threats against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students.

The Day of Truth, held on the same day as the Day of Silence, "was established to counter the promotion of homosexual behavior and to express an opposing viewpoint from a Christian perspective," according to a manual for this year's event published by Exodus International.

COMMENT: I know, it shouldn't take the death of children to shame the wicked into desisting from their evil ways. And to say the young, gay people didn't die in vain seems flippant to the point of being cruel. But God redeems and every time God does, the Kingdom moves just a little bit closer.


GOD REDEEMS — 10 Comments

  1. Kids who read this blog for a laugh may well decide that the church blesses their homosexual impulses and then yield to a temptation they would’ve otherwise resisted, thereby increasing the likelihood of getting AIDS or syphilis (since two out of three cases of those two diseases are among men who have had sex with other men). You have a few short months to get a job that will provide you with a place to live, which will presumably take you out of this ghastly undertaking.

  2. Actually, I’m thinking of taking up being a thorn in the side of nasty people like you, full time. Doing God’s work may not be financially rewarding but it’s so satisfying.

  3. {Sigh}

    I opened this thread, merely to say “Hear, hear. When one takes even a FRACTION of a step towards God, and away from evil, God supplies rest”

    …and then I see the thread’s already been BOMBED by a gawdawful troll.

    I won’t pray you get syphilis or AIDS, Anon. It IS what you deserve, however [Not that I necessarily deserve any better, sinner that I am.]

    Most importantly: GIANTS WIN!!! We’re going to the NLCS! Woo Hoo! 😀

  4. If they come for laughs it is probably to laugh at sex-fixated trolls. Armed with only a thorn and the Gospel, Maddy rides forth to battle bigotry.

    (It would obviously break the troll’s heart to see someone be happy, healthy, AND gay.)

  5. Why address a walking, soulless corpse like that Anonymous? It isn’t real – I doubt it even has a reflection in mirrors! 😀

    Still, it’s good to put up such mindless, heartless moanings – they show everyone that they’ve frittered away the very life of their souls for hate and selfishness’ sakes.

  6. I am well and truly sick & tired of nasty-minded bigots using the word “Christian” to whitewash their sepulchres.

    (yes, my mood with these gits is definitely along the lines of “I’m here to kick ass and chew gum, and I’m all outta gum…”)
