The pictures I am refering to in this article are those of Johnny Correa. He drew a picture of a homosexual Jesus, Kissing another man. This was brought to my attention by an e-mail I received from AFA (American Family Association). The newspaper that published these blasphemous pictures was the 'Insurgent' from the University of Oregon.
I have one question to plant: If these pictures were of a gay Mohamed (a prophet NOT a Deity), these students would need protection, there would public out cry for tolerance of "all" religions, and that's if the pictures would even get published. Why is it acceptable that in a country founded on Judeo Christian beliefs, that Christians and Jews are an "accepted" target of bigotry and intolerance, but a religion that promotes murder, suicide and destruction is not?
One thing is clear, Christians and Jews have (or are supposed to have) strong morals and values, based on the 10 Commandments, which are "conterversal" on there own. (I will not even go there right now). So why are these two religions an ok target to make fun of, and be picked apart... because the world says it is ok to do your own thing and not be accountable. So to the Musslims we hear: "So you wanna be a suicide bomber, and kill the innocent, that's your "thing", who am I to judge?" And to the Jews and Christians we hear: "What makes your God the "right" God? Who are you to tell me how I should live my life? If I want to be a Blaspheming, lying, murderous, adulterer, who is never content with what I have, and doesn't give a flying rip about my parents, that is my decision. Who are you to tell me that my life style is wrong? You are intolerant, that's what you are."
Yep, the Christians and Jews are the intolerant ones...That's why you always see riots in the streets every time a or Blasphemous book, movie, cartoon, etc... comes out against our faith(s). These horrible Christians and Jews, that wish to keep prayer a part of every day life, yes the same ones we want to pray for us when something horrible happens, but they had better not bring it to our schools or to court rooms.
All I know is our country is falling, and that is probably supposed to happen, because one day, I, and most of my family won't be here anymore, just like millions of others around the world. It is our job as believers and followers of Jesus Christ to take a stand against this bigotry, and guide people to the truth. My five year old daughter brings conviction to people she meets where ever she goes, and where there is conviction in your heart lies a seed that has just been planted. I am guilty of failing to prepare a garden, because it could be embarassing, uncomfortable, or what have you. But the fact remains, an eternity in hell will be a lot more uncomforatble for the lost. It is our job to inform the lost, and try to help them avoid the lake of fire. Please pray with me for the lost, for the Dan Browns of this world who set out to destort our faith.
Father, I just ask You to soften the hardened hearts of these people. I pray that You would lead them to the truth, that is You and Your Word. Father, I ask that you would the right people to them at the time You have set, and that each of us could manage to touch the heart and plant a seed in at least one person. You love us so much, that You sent Your only Son to die for us, to bear our sins, and pay our penalty, please help us share Your message with the lost. I pray these things in Jesus' precious and most Holy Name. Amen
