Homosexual Cis (Biological) Man Says He Was Taught to Hate Himself by Leftist, Intersectionalist, Social Justice Warriors, Not Just the Christian Cult He Was Raised In

Homosexual Cis (Biological) Man Says He Was Taught to Hate Himself by Leftist, Intersectionalist, Social Justice Warriors, Not Just the Christian Cult He Was Raised In

This is a very, very long essay, and I read the entire thing earlier today. I will not be putting the whole essay into my post, but only quoting portions of it.

I already did a similar post about a week ago – all the leftist, intersectional crackpots have gone from demonizing “straight” white men, to straight white women, to as of late, their new target seems to have moved on to homosexual, white, “cis” (biological, as opposed to “trans”) men.

A lot of people on the political left seem to think that they won’t be victim to the far left mob, but they will – eventually.
It’s not the conservatives, evangelicals, Trump voters, or Republicans you have to be concerned about if you’re a liberal or LGB person – it’s the far left, the “social justice warriors,” and the “T” and the “Q” in the “LBTQ.”

The homosexual guy who wrote this essay below had to find out first hand

July 8, 2021
by Ben Appel

[The author spends much of his opening mentioning the oppressive “Lamb of God” Christian cult he was raised in, until his parents were excommunicated and had to pull him and his family out of the cult. According to the author, Appel, some of what this cult believed includes:]

The Lamb of God’s doctrine became explicit—Christianity good; Islam, feminism, secular humanism, and Marxism bad; and the rules strict—complete submission of all members to the leadership, and of all wives to their husbands.

[The author mentions he attended some kind of religious schooling by the Lamb of God group, until around seventh grade, when his parents put him in a regular public school, where he was bullied by classmates his age for coming across as “effeminate” and different from the other children.
The author says the other children began scribbling notes saying “Ben is a Fag” and pointing this out to him, etc.]

….The timing was stunning, really. Only months before, in The Lamb of God, I had learned all about homosexual pedophiles, and about the plague that our just God had smote upon them.

In Bible class, “sodomy” was even one of our vocabulary words. Not to mention that I had recently entered puberty and was coming to realize that I was, in fact, the terrible thing my classmates said I was.

I was gay.

Eugene, the 56 Year Old Man, Tells Christian Show Host He’s Tired of Being Single

Eugene, the 56 Year Old Man, Tells Christian Show Host He’s Tired of Being Single

On today’s “The 700 Club,” host Pat Robertson got a question from a guy who says he’s 56 year old and tired of being alone. (The guy is single and would like a girlfriend, or to marry.)

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again – single adults of America (but especially women!) please (Link): stop asking Pat Robertson for relationship advice.

I’ve watched his “700 Club” show for many years, and Robertson always gives the same 3 to 4 answers to single adults who write him asking him why hasn’t God sent them a spouse, or how do they get a spouse?

And Pat Robertson always tells lovelorn single adults to “go fishing where the fish are,” (i.e, visit locales where you are sure to find single adults), and, he will tell you that “God puts the lonely in families,” which is a load of sh*t – no, God does not always put single adults who may be lonely “into families.”

For women who write in, especially if they are age 40 or older and single and want a spouse, Pat will insultingly tell them that they “sound desperate.” (Seriously; he has done this in the past, see the links below under “Related Posts” for links to examples of this atrocious behavior.)

(I’ve noticed that Robertson never tells the older single MEN who write in saying they are lonely and want a spouse that the MEN “sound desperate.” Robertson only tosses that sexist, insulting comment at single WOMEN.)

Pat Robertson also wrongly believes (and many Christians are like this as well, not just him), that (Link): if you want a spouse and pray for one, that God will of course send you one – which also a bunch of garbage.

So, here is what Eugene wrote in to Pat:

What do I have to do to find that special woman in my life? I’m tired of living alone in life. It’s been 56 years. Please help me, Pat. I read the Bible, but it never seems to help. I love all you guys and enjoy your show.

[Signed] Eugene

You can view / listen to Eugene’s question in this video on You Tube, and it’s around 44.25 into the video.

You can also listen to Pat Robertson’s unhelpful advice in that video to Eugene.

But… Eugene… should you read this, I have this to say to you:

Excerpts:

In her first interview since filing a federal lawsuit against the company of financial guru Dave Ramsey, Caitlin O’Conner described the company as a cult and said employees fear to make missteps in their personal lives for fear it will be reported to their work superiors.

O’Connor filed the federal lawsuit after she said she was fired for having premarital sex and becoming pregnant.

…That story featured audio of Ramsey speaking to staff, mocking employees who engage in premarital sex.

Abstinence and ‘Purity Culture’ Are Often Conflated but Aren’t The Same, Tim Keller Explains, by B. Showalter

Abstinence and ‘Purity Culture’ Are Often Conflated but Aren’t The Same, Tim Keller Explains 

I’m not totally in agreement on Keller (Link) on everything, but he is correct that too many believers (Link): falsely conflate the concepts of being sexually abstinent outside of marriage with the faults in purity culture and unfortunately ditch the concept altogether.

Yet other Christians (Link): falsely believe and teach that the Bible does not support the practice of remaining a virgin until marriage.

The progressive Christians (and (Link): occasionally, doofus conservatives) try to ease the guilty consciences of fornicators (Link): by downplaying fornication.

(Link): Abstinence and ‘Purity Culture’ Are Often Conflated but Aren’t The Same, Tim Keller Explains 

April 17, 2021

by Brandon Showalter

What’s often referred to as “purity culture” is not the same thing as remaining sexually abstinent outside of marriage, though many conflate the two, according to Tim Keller, founder and former pastor of Redeemer Church in New York City.

Keller explained in a Facebook post that in the early church, the Christian sexual ethic — that “sex was only for within a mutual, whole-self-giving, super-consensual life-long covenant” — was “revolutionary,” given the prevailing Greco-Roman ethic of the day.

The Mark Gungor and Sheila Gregoire Dust Up, vis a vis SSB Blog – I’ve blogged about Gungor for Years

The Mark Gungor and Sheila Gregoire Dust Up, vis a vis SSB Blog – I’ve blogged about Gungor for Years

Back when I was still on Twitter, I had to un-Follow Gregorie, because she sometimes “likes” anti-Republican type comments, which I got tired of seeing after months – her anti-conservative etc tweets that she “liked” would appear in my feed. I got tired of seeing them (I’m a conservative). 

I’ve blogged about Gungor before, going back years, on this blog. Here are some of my posts about the guy:

Gungor, as I’ve noted before on older posts at this blog (going back years) is a Christian marital advice person. He used to host marriage advice television shows on Christian network TBN.

And most of what I saw of his work had Gungor trading in secular, sexist stereotypes about women, and also promoting gendered stereotypes about men.

Evangelical CEO Dave Ramsey’s Company Fired Employees Who Had Premarital Sex by Leonardo Blair

Evangelical CEO Dave Ramsey’s Company Fired Employees Who Had Premarital Sex by Leonardo Blair

I wonder if, knowing this employer’s policy, if an unmarried woman gets pregnant while working at Ramsey’s place, if she feels trapped – doesn’t want to get fired – would she run out and get an abortion?

If a woman working for Dave Ramsey’s Solutions feels desperate enough, afraid she can’t pay her bills if she were to get fired, she may be tempted to get an abortion – thus hiding a pregnancy, and Ramsey’s company would never know, assuming she’s paying for it out of pocket and takes a personal day off. She would therefore avoid being fired.

Is that really what Ramsey and other, similar Christian employers want (assuming they’re pro-life)?

Ramsey Solutions said it did not fire an employee for being pregnant, but for having premarital sex. She disagrees.

by Leonardo Blair

Months after a former employee alleged in a lawsuit that she was fired by evangelical CEO Dave Ramsey’s Ramsey Solutions after becoming pregnant, the company’s lawyers responded in a recent court filing that she was fired for having premarital sex and so were multiple others.

The company also expects its employees to live by Judeo-Christian principles and submit to its “righteous living” policy.

In a recent motion to dismiss the case, cited Monday by (Link): The Tennessean, the company’s lawyers say former administrative assistant Caitlin O’Connor was terminated last June because she isn’t legally married to the father of her child.

This, *This,* of All things, is the Litmus Test in the Biden Administration? Are Liberals, Democrats Serious About This? Regarding: Marijuana Vs. Sexism

This, *This,* of All things, is the Litmus Test in the Biden Administration? Are Liberals, Democrats Serious About This? Regarding: Marijuana Vs. Sexism

I don’t know how fair it is to hold Joe Biden accountable for much of anything these days, as the guy apparently is in early stages dementia and doesn’t even know what year it is.

Maybe Kamala Harris is the actual POTUS (President) in practice, if not in name right now, and Biden is the feeble figure head only, who knows?

Having said that, Biden and his Democratic Party administration are FINE and dandy with saying they oppose sexism,
YET,
they also defend sexist pro-Transgender policies (such as allowing biological boys who “identify as girls”) into girls’ sports, thus depriving actual girls of scholarship opportunities and positions on sports teams.

Biden and most (not all, but most) Democrats, leftists, and progressives are FINE with that sort of unfairness against girls and women; allowing men and boys to succeed at the expense of actual females;  I guess I can dub that “Trans Sexism.”

But, smoking marijuana, (a habit I am rather neutral on, and no, I’ve never smoked it myself) is considered a fire-worthy offense by the Biden administration?

Biden administration: Sexism fine, smoking pot bad.

Seems to me that in some ways, smoking marijuana is less harmful than allowing biological males into biological female spaces.
But such is the wacko, nutty, inconsistent, stupid practices and beliefs of most Democrats, Leftists, Progressives and Liberals these days.

(I can’t say most of this on Twitter – they will suspend you for saying any of this over there – Twitter doesn’t like the truth getting out on their platform.)

by Z. Folk, March 2021

A number of White House staffers were asked to resign or demoted for past marijuana use — regardless of whether those employees had been in one of the 14 states where the drug is legal, according to a report.

The Biden administration had required workers to disclose past marijuana use on a background check form, but told some new hires that it would “overlook” those who answered yes, the (Link): Daily Beast reported.

If you seriously think that Democrats, liberals, Never Trump Republicans, leftists, or progressives really and truly care about fighting sexism or care for actual (biological) girls and women, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I’d like to sell you.

Open your eyes: liberals, progressives, Democrats, Never Trumpers do NOT care about women, girls, or in fighting sexism.

Look at what they DO, not at what they SAY.

Wisconsin State Judge Who Supported “Drag Queen Story Hour” for School Children Arrested on Child Porn Charges

Wisconsin State Judge Who Supported “Drag Queen Story Hour” for School Children Arrested on Child Porn Charges

Unlike most secular, ex-Christian, or still-practicing Christian progressives, I am more than happy to point out wrong-doing committed by progressives….

(i.e, unlike the majority of Never Trump Republicans, progressives, ex SBC member Beth Moore, author and blogger Jeri Massi, and ex-Christians,
I, who am a conservative who is unsure of what her current religious beliefs are,
don’t sit around acting out-raged over sins of conservatives, Christians, churches, and/or Republicans,
while ignoring, or trying to rationalize or downplay the sins of progressives, Democrats, Democrat politicians, or anyone who supports liberal or progressive views)…
…so I present to you this news story below:

(Yeah, “supporting drag queens at children’s story hour” would be a progressive- and- “Never Trump” cause,
not something that conservative or moderate churches, Republicans, or the majority of Trump voters would support;
– also note (hello, Stephanie Drury, Christopher / Chrissy Stroop, and other “Empty the Pews” doofi out there):
perverts and child molesters are known to not only participate in churches or to work as youth pastors,
but they are also known to join boy scouts, work in secular, public schools, and can found among ALL political and religious and non-religious groups):

Legendary Singer Carman Dies at 65: Winning ‘Millions to Christ’ was Greatest Achievement

Legendary Singer Carman Dies at 65: Winning ‘Millions to Christ’ was Greatest Achievement

Not only did I learn that conservative commentator (Link): Rush Limbaugh died today, but I saw this headline today – I recall watching this guy’s music specials on TBN back in the day.

I also remember when he hosted some “PTL” show or whatever it was on TBN, and he commented on being single. (This was several years ago, maybe ten or fifteen.)

He said on the show at that time that he was fine with being single. He said being single didn’t bother him until another person (usually a Christian) brought it up and made him feel bad or ashamed about it.

I can relate to that; there are times when I am fine with being single, but some well-meaning Christian will start saying things like “but how is such a great person such as yourself still single.”

Their motive is well-meaning, but it usually has the effect of making you feel like you must have some “flaw” which is evident to other people but not to you, so the comment has the opposite effect it was intended to have (please, stop saying to your single friends, “how are YOU still single, when you’re such a great catch.”)

A statement released on Feb. 16 revealed that the entertainer died “after fighting a series of complications resulting from surgery to repair a hiatal hernia.” He was 65.

After being in remission from cancer over the past six years, Licciardello’s recent surgery led to internal bleeding.

Ravi Updates: Ravi Zacharias Hid Hundreds of Pictures of Women, Abuse During Massages, and a Rape Allegation

Ravi Zacharias Hid Hundreds of Pictures of Women, Abuse During Massages, and a Rape Allegation

I first blogged about the perverted shenanigans of his months ago.

This goes to show (yet again!) that being married and part of a “nuclear family” does not make a person more godly, ethical, mature, or responsible, as so many marriage-promoting Christians like to argue.

The “nuclear family” also doesn’t improve society as so many Christians argue – note I am not opposed to the nuclear family, only I don’t hype it to a degree that is unwarranted as do so many other conservatives.

NEW YORK (AP) — Ravi Zacharias, who died in May after a high-profile career leading a global Christian ministry, engaged in sexual misconduct with massage therapists and carried on many amorous extramarital relationships via text message and email, according to a scathing, in-depth report from a law firm hired by the ministry.

Five of the therapists said Zacharias touched them inappropriately, and one said she was raped, according to the report. It said investigators searching Zacharias’ mobile devices found more than 200 photographs of younger women, including nude images of a salon employee in Malaysia.

His ministry, preparing to downsize in the wake of a new investigation, expresses regret for “misplaced trust” in a leader who used his esteem to conceal his sexual misconduct.

by DANIEL SILLIMAN AND KATE SHELLNUTT|FEBRUARY 11, 2021

A four-month investigation found the late Ravi Zacharias leveraged his reputation as a world-famous Christian apologist to abuse massage therapists in the United States and abroad over more than a decade while the ministry led by his family members and loyal allies failed to hold him accountable.

He used his need for massage and frequent overseas travel to hide his abusive behavior, luring victims by building trust through spiritual conversations and offering funds straight from his ministry.

A (Link): 12-page report released Thursday by Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM) confirms abuse by Zacharias at day spas he owned in Atlanta and uncovers five additional victims in the US, as well as evidence of sexual abuse in Thailand, India, and Malaysia.

To the Christians (especially married ones) Who Like to Instruct Single Christian Adults They Should Only Marry Other Christians, Listen Up. (Re: Equally Yoked Rule)

To the Christians (especially married ones) Who Like to Instruct Single Christian Adults They Should Only Marry Other Christians, Listen Up (Re: Equally Yoked Rule)

It seems like at least once a year, some editorial, pod cast, article, tweet, or blog post appears some where, usually by a married Christian man (can be by a woman, but it’s usually by a man, one who graduated from college prior to the advent of the CD-ROM and Atari 2600), who shames, pressures, (or claims that the Bible teaches that) single Christian adults should only date or marry other Christians.

Much of what I say in this post will be repetitive for anyone who has actually, regularly visited this blog of mine in years past, and for that I apologize, but some themes bear repeating.

There is one new angle to this I will add – kind of.

Here’s the new twist, which I’ve not thought to come right out and say before:

If you are a Christian, especially a married one who has been married for many years, who believes in the “equally yoked rule” (or sometimes, it’s stated as “do not be unequally yoked”) when opining about dating and marriage, I want to know, what specifically are you doing to help single Christians, especially single Christian women, who desire marriage, to get married?

What concrete, practical steps are you taking to get singles married?

What have you done for single adults lately? Hmm?

An applicable music interlude: (Link, You Tube video): What Have You Done For Me Lately?, by Janet Jackson

Giving advice, or quoting Bible verses, at singles about marriage, relationships, Jesus, or contentment, does not count.

Nor does tossing out Christianese platitudes to singles help or count, such as, “Remember, the LORD will be your husband,” “Trust in the Lord and his timing, and He will send you a spouse,” or, “find contentment in your singleness, and that is when the Lord will send you a spouse.” 

Telling Christian singles to “just get out there more,” “volunteer at church more,” or “try dating sites” doesn’t count, either.
