Piers Morgan & Kirk Cameron
It's happened again. Another Christian being forced into an opinion on homosexuality and then named an ignorant bigot. Only this time that Christian is Kirk Cameron and the brute is Piers Morgan and I'm having a really hard time dealing with it. Piers is brutal in his opinions of people and always has been. He's hard to watch on America's Got Talent! because of that very problem. He rarely has anything nice to say about anyone. But I honestly didn't think he would stoop this low.
You know who Kirk Cameron is, right? The guy from the Left Behind movies who got his start in that sitcom Growing Pains? He's a good actor and his performance in Fireproof is applauded. But more than that, he's a staunch Christian who holds to his ideals. So what does Piers do? He has Kirk on his show for apparently the sole purpose of tearing him down. He literally forced an answer on homosexuality out of Kirk and then proceeded to make Kirk's opinion a federal case. Why is it that Piers and all the other supporters of homosexuality have the constitution behind them? But we people who dare disagree with them are called ignorant bigots and of the "extreme" religious right?
What I'm experiencing now is called righteous indignation. They don't care about our opinion. Our opinion is hateful to them. How dare we say that homosexuality is a sin in the eyes of God. Like I just did. Christians are bullied into silence because we're afraid of what people are going to say to us and of us. Why do we care about the opinions of others so much? I don't know. The only opinion that should matter to us is God's opinion.
You know, I have no control over homosexuality behind closed doors. People are going to sin. It's a fact of life and if they choose that lifestyle I will grieve but there is nothing I can do to prevent it. I don't hate and I don't terrorize. But I sure as heck don't have to agree with the actions of homosexuality. They don't agree with my religion, I, backed by biblical truth, don't agree with their sexual preference.
When are Christians going to say enough? When are we going to stop living in fear that what we say might offend someone. LET IT! Are we placed here on this earth to mollycoddle sinners? No, that's not our calling! Our calling is to reach out to the lost souls who will be eternally damned without Jesus. Is homosexual activity really worth going to hell over?
This grieves my heart. And it angers me because of the helplessness I feel in not being able to voice my opinion while homosexual supporters are given free reign. And I know that this post at some point will have haters on it. Oh well. I'm not apologizing for one word on here. What I will say is that God loves and wants to save every single, solitary soul on this earth. We, we people, are the ones who separate ourselves from Him. He never turns us away.
