Reversing the Homosexual Agenda
[COMMENT: This email was sent to
a very vocal anti-homosexuality group
in Wisconsin. E. Fox
I get your email newsletter and note the following from you:
The writer of the following e-mail wanted
us to know that he or she hates us because . . . well, because we
spread "hatred." Believe it or not, this is not the first time that we
have been accused of being hatemongers based on the fact that someone
hates us. It's called throwing a tantrum because everyone else does not
pander to your wants, needs, desires, and vision of how things ought to
be. But these people are not children. If they get control of our
country, their tantrums will be deadly to our families, our liberty,
and perhaps someday, our lives.
I have been involved in this mess since 1987 in the Episcopal
Church, and have watched our so-called conservative leadership give the
Church away to persons who have no respect for either love or truth, and
whose God is their bellies (good feelings).
The conservative side
makes two fundamental and opposite errors: (1) cowardice combined with
ignorance, and (2) over-reaction which sees homosexual persons as problems
rather than as persons, which does not love the enemy, but treats the
enemy as objects to be gotten rid of. Both errors (sins) deny some
central aspect of the Gospel and of Godly strategy. We are dealing first
of all with persons, not issues. The issues are important only because of
the persons and personal relationships involved.
In the matter of spreading hate, it is vital that we not only
do well, but look like we are doing well. That is, we must give an
honest impression that we love those who are in the homosexual lifestyle
-- especially true for those many homosexual persons who wish to come out,
and would accept help if they understood that Christians cared for them as
persons, regardless of their behavior (which is not only sinful, it is a
complusive, lethal addiction).
I would urge you to make this point over and over in your
emails, etc. I would also urge you to avoid the word 'sodomite'. It
may, in a sense, be accurate, but is, or certainly feels like (from the
receiving end) to be directed at one's personhood. Our target should be
behavior, not persons. If we do not make that clear, we confuse our own
strategy -- for the general public, as well as for homosexual persons
The distinction between who we are and what we do is one of the
primary confusions inherent to the homosexual condition. They want to
believe that homosexuality is who they are, not just what they do. We
must make clear that we do not accept nonsense -- but our stance is
confused by our labeling them as persons.
The word 'sodomy' labels a behavior, and therefore is
legitimate. I hope you will avoid the word 'sodomite' which labels a
person rather than a behavior.
Attached is a pdf.* file which gives the
only strategy I know of for turning the
homosexual mess around with reasonable speed. The longer we wait, the
more people are going to be hurt and broken, including especially our
children in the sadly corrupted churches and schools. If we do not do
this, we will still be having our "ain't it awful" discussions five years
from now. If we do it, with grace and persistence, we will turn the
When supporters of homosexuality learn that every time they get up
to speak, they will be required to defend homosexual behavior publicly,
there will be far fewer of them getting up. Our side has been too timid
and too prudish to raise the issue, and their side cannot afford to. So
the American public is being persuaded to buy a "pig in a poke", unseen
and unexamined. That is tragic, and it is our own fault.
We can rectify this quickly if we will with grace and
persistence ask them to explain to us the nature of the behavior we are
being asked to approve. And if they will not, then we can do it for
them, objectively and calmly. See the attached.
Behavior is the only issue they cannot talk around. Let us
step up to the plate and force an honest discussion of the matter. You

This is a winnable war. And the people who have the most to
win are those caught in a compulsive, lethal addiction. But that can
happen only when we force an honest discussion of the issues. We can
be very frank about behavior, but we must be openly loving toward
persons. Then, when truth wins, everybody wins. Truth without love is
that clanging gong of 1 Cor. 13, and no service to the Lord of truth.
Gracefulness is a fundamental part of Godly strategy.
Sy Rogers, a powerful leader in the Exodus movement, noted
several years ago that the homosexualists are in the ascendancy because
God has put them there. Just as He did with the Assyrians. He puts
the other side in the ascendancy when His own people are not doing
their job. He will keep them there until we get obedient. That means
getting our own sexual lives in order, treating homosexual persons like
persons, not problems, and forcing truth to the table.
