In news about the LGBT this week, homosexuals in California have now made the first “Gay historic district” in the US:
Decades ago, San Francisco’s gay and leather culture sought shelter in the city’s seedy South of Market district — forced there by brutal police crackdowns on gays.
Over time, the area became a vibrant place teeming with bathhouses and bars that added to San Francisco’s reputation as a colorful, free-wheeling refuge open to different sexual lifestyles.
These days, gentrification and skyrocketing rents are threatening to drive the gay and leather crowd out of a neighborhood that’s now home to Airbnb, Twitter and high-end condos.
On Tuesday, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors approved a resolution creating the Leather and LGBTQ Cultural District as a way to honor the past and ensure the area remains a refuge.
San Francisco, birthplace of the rainbow gay pride flag, has long welcomed sexual and other minorities. It has several neighborhoods significant to LGBTQ history, including the Castro and Tenderloin, where transgender women fed up with police raids rioted in 1966.
South of Market attracted the leather crowd and remains the site of gay bars and the popular Folsom Street Fair, which draws tens of thousands of people every year dressed in their bondage best. With plenty of tiny leather briefs and bare chests, studded dog collars and whips, the fair is an annual ode to celebrating the San Francisco values of free speech and sexual freedom. (source)
In Illinois, homosexuals also passed a law requiring the “LGBT history” is taught in schools:
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender historical figures would become a required part of history classes in Illinois’ public schools under a bill that passed the state Senate on Wednesday.
Senate Bill 3249, approved 34-18, would require a portion of public school history courses to include study of LGBT figures and that history books be “non-discriminatory” overall. Local school districts would still set the curriculum and have control over when the additional subject matter is included.
“By teaching students an inclusive curriculum, Illinois classrooms will promote acceptance and a more accurate portrayal of history,” said Sen. Heather Steans, D-Chicago, the bill’s sponsor. “LGBT students also will learn about people who had some similar qualities to them and became historical role models.”
LGBT advocacy group Equality Illinois praised the bill’s passage, arguing the state’s school code “already ensures inclusion in history curriculum of the contributions and experiences of other historically marginalized communities, including of people of color, women, immigrant communities and people with disabilities.”
Some education advocates and religious groups oppose the bill but for different reasons.
“We have a clear directive from our membership to oppose all curricular mandates that come before the General Assembly,” said Zach Messersmith, director of government relations for the Illinois Association of School Boards. “We believe that locally elected school boards should be able to determine curricula for their students as long as it meets Illinois Learning Standards.”
Christian groups like Concerned Christian Americans and the Illinois Family Institute cite their own religious objections and those of some students’ families.
“It is well known that the controversies of the transgender and homosexual movements are in direct contradiction to the clear Judeo-Christian beliefs of many in Illinois,” said Illinois Family Institute lobbyist Ralph Rivera, in a memo to legislators. “Schools should teach that we should be respectful of each student and each person. This is what we all agree on. However, schools should not be used to advocate for lifestyles that are against the religious values of the students and parents.”
“I know there’s been concerns about religious freedom and this is not what (this bill) is trying to do,” Steans said. “It’s just acknowledging that a person of historical significance was gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. It makes no value judgement.” (source)
Not a surprise.
Currently, a 5/8 majority- 63%- of Americans support homosexual “marriage” as a part of the total population. Among Millenials and GenZ, its a super majority at over 75%. This does not even cover homosexuality itself, at which point it is clear that a majority and likely, a supermajority of Americans support.
Most Americans love homosexuality, as it they support it whether or not they are homosexuals themselves. What is happening here is a reflection of the will of the people. The society has given itself over to the LGBT because the people want it.
Likewise, this is also why Christianity is in decline. Christianity in all forms is not wanted and rejected, and is fought against aggressively by the people. The people don’t want the Faith. They have rejected Rome for Sodom.
And where is TRUMP in all of this? He’s busy holding the sodomite flag:
And you think America is going to be made great again?
Right now, there is an increasing and serious discussion to ban guns in the US congress. One congressman is calling for gun owners to be forced to turn over their legally owned weapons or else be punished:
A Democratic congressman has proposed outlawing “military-style semiautomatic assault weapons” and forcing existing owners to sell their weapons or face prosecution, a major departure from prior gun control proposals that typically exempt existing firearms.
In a USA Today op-ed entitled “Ban assault weapons, buy them back, go after resisters,” Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., argued Thursday that prior proposals to ban assault weapons “would leave millions of assault weapons in our communities for decades to come.”
Swalwell proposes that the government should offer up to $1,000 for every weapon covered by a new ban, estimating that it would take $15 billion to buy back roughly 15 million weapons — and “criminally prosecute any who choose to defy [the buyback] by keeping their weapons.” (source)
I bring up this story because, as history has shown consistently, guns and other weapons are frequently banned by tyrannical governments before or leading up to a severe repression of the population. Basically, by disarming people they prevent them from protecting themselves against abuses and make them subject to the whims of whatever ruler is currently in power.
America may have been “exceptional” at one point, and at today’s time America is exceptional in propagating sin to her people and all around the world. As such, if she still is a “city on a hill,” that city is Sodom with all of her evils.
God sees all and He will punish her in due time. One such punishment is, as St. Paul states in his letter to the Romans, to allow the people to wander about their own way without guidance, which will be to allow them to fall into their own slavery and misery.
Should anybody be surprise then about such a gun bill coming up at not per se this incident, but as a pattern of a trend towards a loss of even what few freedoms are left and the burdening of men to slavery by debt and a loss of a sense of purpose in this world?
Freedom is the ability to choose to do what is right, which is to follow the will of God in Christ. Any other options is not to choose freedom, but slavery by another means that all lead to the same end.
To support the LGBT is to support something which God hates, which is called worthy of death, and which is roundly condemned throughout history as evil.
It is to abandon Christ and support one’s own enslavement.
This is why America is declining. The people of the nation have decided, and believe on some level, that they would rather support license than morality, ultimately because many are inclined to license themselves and simply want to continue to persist in their own errors.
That is a harrowing thought.
