It’s Christmas and nearly every activist organization is attempting to further their own agenda at the expense of the popular Christian holiday. For years now atheist organizations have put up billboards of their own pushing their unbelief and attempting to shut down all vestiges of the religious aspects of the holiday on public lands and in government forums.
Now comes this latest attack on Christmas from an Anglican Christian church of all places supporting an ad which insinuates that Jesus was gay? From the Christian Post:
A new billboard outside of a church in New Zealand is drawing criticism from the local community and the wider Christian population by inferring that the son of God was homosexual. The billboard states that its "time for Jesus to come out."
The church, St. Matthew-in-the-City in Auckland, is described on their home page as a progressive Anglican church and posted the advertisement as a way to start a new debate. Their argument is that Jesus might have been gay- a dubious claim that has been met with stern opposition.
Response: From my perspective, this is the most disturbing anti-Christmas attack of the entire 2012 Christmas season because it was perpetrated by those who are supposed to be ministers of the Gospel.
Christmas is a time when all Christians regardless of their sectarian and denominational persuasions can all celebrate together the coming of the Lord as a baby born in Bethlehem of Judea. But the ministers in this obviously liberal church decide this is a good time to challenge the Biblical record and bring division instead of blessing and unity? It should be a time when Christians turn to their faith and families for strength and celebratory confirmation but these ministers choose to bring controversy and derision?
They are condemned by their very actions and their obvious rejection of the very Bible and faith they were ordained to defend and teach. A lump of coal is destined for everyone of their stockings on Christmas in this world and in the world to come. *Top
