It’s My Right To Obey My God by Robert Socha
For far too long, the homosexual agenda has been at the forefront of the national dialogue and controlled the narrative in favor of their debauched lifestyle choices, feigning discrimination and demanding special rights and privileges. Patiently and deliberately, those who advocate for this unnatural behavior continually encroach on parents’ rights to raise their children in traditionally married, husband and wife, wholesome, virtuous monogamous families. They cry foul when people dare to speak out against their immorality and then publicly shame and attack their detractor’s character, spinning the portrayal to their purported virtue.
A purposeful oddity is their adamant and commonly vulgar repudiation of those who defy their tactics and lifestyle choices. For example, they declare a right to same-sex relations but openly mock and embarrass the opposition as if their abnormal behavior trumps the desires of those who choose to live and raise their children as naturally designed. They are the actual exhibitors of intolerance.
I received challenges inquiring if my viewpoint represents the homosexuals living in the ward I serve. In response, I ask how my perspective infringes on a homosexual’s lifestyle choice. It does not. Homosexuals are not entitled to special rights and privileges nor targeted representation. They do not deserve to have their grooming materials geared toward little children prominently displayed in our public libraries. They are not victims except for their own choices.
I also want to declare that I did not abandon my faith and principles when I ran for the city council. I do not have to support behavior that I consider abhorrent. However, my conscience demands that I warn those whom I believe to be making damnable decisions. I would be the ultimate hypocrite if I didn’t alert them that such behavior will not inherit the kingdom of God and encourage there is hope to be washed, sanctified, and justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
I espouse that the best and healthiest lifestyle choices are for one man to marry one woman and for the two to live monogamously until death. I encourage their being fruitful and multiplying, to train their children in the way they should go, to fear and seek the Lord. I believe this to be healthy and sustainable. I advocate for the defense and promotion of traditional marriage and family and removing books promoting homosexuality from the children’s section to the library’s adult section. Then parents have a greater chance of deciding if the material is appropriate for their family.
Perhaps the community should have spoken out more before the pent-up frustration boiled over. We should be actively involved in our civic responsibilities. However, I understand the hesitation of those opposing the homosexual agenda because of the fear of being publicly maligned and sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. Nevertheless, the current engagement requires action and an accurate representation of our community’s time-honored values, including promoting materials geared toward that venerable institution of traditional marriage.
I put a slightly amended version of the letter above on public record in our city council meeting on Monday, June 6, 2022. Since then, Mychal Massie’s latest piece[i]has reintroduced me to the homosexual manifesto[ii](I encourage you to read it through for a thorough understanding of why the nation’s temperature is so feverish).
The verbiage used in the abovementioned manifesto is strong, violent, and vile. The men who desire to groom our children to be “recast in our image” do not mince their words. The language casts heterosexuals as vicious enemies. They expose their corruption as imagination and their campaign to legitimize their debauched hedonistic lifestyle as the victim in the argument for what is morally right. They are achieving their stated purposes! Do not fear men who can destroy this mortal body, but fear God who can destroy both body and soul in hell[iii]. Join me by using their salami-slicing tactics against them, refuting and exposing their unrighteous deeds just as loudly and adamantly as they promote them.
