Penn State University Continues to Build on a Foundation of Notoriety!

.....The ceremony will be held March 29 at the HUB-Robeson Center. State College Mayor Bill Welch, who said he supports the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community and its allies (LGBTA), will preside over the event. It is the first event of LGBTA's Pride Week. "I'd have no problem performing same-sex marriages, but it's not legal," Welch said.... --- from a Penn State campus news organization reporting on a scheduled commitment ceremony to be held for homosexual and lesbian couples on March 29, 2008

Penn State University continues to add to its list of accomplishments for top entry in the Notoriety Hall of Fame! In the central Pennsylvania region the news diet as it pertains to Penn State University is a steady stream of stuff that makes a cesspool smell like a rose!

Here are the kinds of things we are told as they unfold at the school which has a well known coach named Joe Paterno and a football team which has some members who have done more than their share in tarnishing the image of the school:

  • Penn State football team players involved in brawls with various charges brought against them for such conduct
  • sexual assaults
  • underage drinking and arrests on that basis
  • assaults, which often are connected to use of beverage alcohol -- seems the alcohol flows practically unrestricted around the university!

Now comes the latest blunder of blunders -- a "commitment" ceremony to be held on campus for couples who practice sodomy or lesbianism! One news release indicated there will be 3 male couples and 3 female couples. State College Mayor Bill Welch will conduct the ceremony for them at the HUB-Robeson Center. The mayor has been quoted as saying that he supports the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community and its allies (LGBTA).

A couple of the males involved in the ceremony spoke of receiving strong support from the community and throughout the campus. They are both doctoral students at Penn State. One said, "We just want to show the public that we're just like any other committed couple who loves each other."

There will be a protest gathering at the same time as the ceremony is taking place. It has been organized by Gary Dull, pastor of Faith Baptist Church in Altoona.

Already a large number of petitions have been submitted in protest of the commitment ceremony. But Mayor Welch has indicated his intention to go ahead with the ceremony in spite of the protesting that is taking place.

This is but one of many unfolding events across the entire nation indicating the progress which has been made by those supporting the sodomite/lesbian agenda. With a lot of highly intelligent people, lots of financial support, effective strategic planning, masterful waging of psychological "warfare" and successful infiltration of the educational system and mass media these people are much nearer their goal of forced acceptance of their "way of life."

Those of us who still choose to believe that God's boundary lines for acceptable sexual intimacy is limited to a male and female within the covenant of marriage are finding our ranks diminishing. Perhaps in part due to an unwillingness by some to live with the negative labels of "homophobic," "mean-spirited," "unloving," "unchristian," etc. For those supporting the sodomite/lesbian agenda, this aspect of the psychological warfare is proving to be quite effective!

It is also very possible that some have capitulated and gone along with the strategy of "dialog" -- we sit down and discuss how we can agree to disagree, thus creating a "loving" environment and a "positive" attitude -- which translates into "live and let live!"

A few would agree -- probably very few -- that we are witnessing the predictions of Jesus being fulfilled before our very eyes -- He said that the human race would regress to the point that it would be like a rerun of the days in which Noah lived before the judgment of the flood and the days of Lot when he lived in a city by the name of Sodom!

And you know what? I'm not going to cite the book, chapter and verse numbers on that -- if you want to verify it, it's in the Bible SOMEWHERE! You know, that Book which gathers dust by the inch in many, many homes across this republic!

As for Penn State, will it qualify for an entry in Guinness World Records for doing more to gain notoriety than any other university has ever done?

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!......... And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. --- Isaiah 5:20; Romans 1:28-32

The church has had a poor record reaching out to the GLB population, we have heaped condemnation of have swung the other way in guilty acceptance. There must be a better way. I have been praying for wisdom and discernment and dealing with this issue wihich plaques not only arund the environs of Penn State but even in the shadows and corners of small rural hollers. In such places it is acknowledged with a nod and a wink and not spoken of. Preaching "Thou shalt not' has not dettered folks, I believe we need to speak with authority as to why God says don't go there, few handle or address that other than to say "because God says so that why". We also need to explore the root cause of why folks turn from the natural use of their body and try to minister from there. Are churches reaching out in ministry or in condemnation?

On this issue the United Methodist Church is a graphic example of a "house divided" and you will recall what Jesus said about that situation! One of the primary problems is due to growing acceptance of the practices of sodomy and lesbianism both outside as well as inside the church. When you have leaders at the episcopal level giving sanction to it, then it is a guarantee that we are in trouble beyond our ability to imagine!
As for ministry to such people -- it is the same as it has always been -- Jesus loves us and calls us to repent of our sins, including all sexual kinds, and receive Him as Savior and Lord -- that is the heart and core of the Great Commission issued by Jesus before He returned to Heaven. BUT that's where the conflict erupts with increased numbers saying that the practice of sodomy and lesbianism is not sinful when taking place within a monogamous and "loving" context! The burden is on those persons to show clear and positive statements from the Scripture which give sanction and the blessing of God upon such "unions!" Those few of us that declare it to be sinful are adorned with numerous negative labels as mentioned in the blog comment. But I can live with that for a while -- it will only be as long as I draw breath on this earth and eventually all of us will hear God give the final word on the issue and whether or not He really meant what He said about human sexuality and its boundaries as He established them!

It sure takes a lot of guts to make a statement and not sign your name -- that's sort of a nauseating experience too -- it falls into about the same class as those "he-men" who beat up their wives and girl friends!
