The Sodomite/Lesbian Juggernaut Continues to Roll!
The Sodomite/Lesbian Juggernaut

Continues to Roll!


Hello there - Theo here to inform you that CR has set up this area to provide information from a lot of different sources which indicates the truth of the above title -- the S/L cartel is cutting through cultures, ours included, like the proverbial "hot knife through butter!" Sad thing is that all too many who claim to be Christian and professing to believe the Bible don't want to face the reality of what is happening -- and while they may say that sodomy and lesbianism are morally wrong, they don't want to speak up and protest it -- you know, like a toothache -- ignore it and maybe it will go away! And besides, it's practically a guarantee these days -- speak out against sodomy and lesbianism and you are instantly branded as being "homophobic" plus a lot of other labels that remind you of your being badly "out of step" with today's world -- and nobody wants that, do they -- well, probably a majority of nobodies! Purpose of the below information which will be updated regularly is to remind us that it is not just a U.S. culture problem -- it's all over the world -- ooops! No, not quite all over the world -- these people aren't militantly pressuring a lot of Islamic nations as they are ours -- you can lose your head if you suggest to Islamic rulers that they are hate mongers, a bunch of homophobes, etc!

And as the S/L Juggernaut continues to roll, so is something else rolling with it -- sort of like its undesirable shadow -- further down note references in 2 news releases about the AIDS problem!

Because of the S/L Juggernaut moving at such a fast pace these days, it has become necessary to set up an archives area -- you'll be impressed at the record of accomplishments over the past few years -- to view these go to

"Rejoicing"
Isaiah 35:1-16; Luke 1:46-55
Third in the Advent series "Becoming Peace"
A sermon by Irene Elizabeth Stroud, M.Div.
First United Methodist Church of Germantown (FUMCOG)
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

"One of the characteristics of the life of faith is the experience of counterintuitive joy. Just when the logical response to external circumstances would seem to be anger, or frustration, or despair, the person of faith may experience a strong, deep sense of confidence and gladness. In the midst of suffering and disappointment, laughter wells up from the depths of a person's heart. In times of terrible losses and setbacks, a person nevertheless discovers a song in her heart.

I'm not talking about the way hard times help us appreciate the easier times, or the way losing something of great value, like health or a relationship or a good job, can help us appreciate what we still have. I'm not talking about a Pollyannish insistence on looking at the bright side. Instead, I'm talking about a joy that bubbles up in and through us precisely at the hardest times, and that doesn't externally seem to make any sense at all. I'm talking about a joy that is God's gift to us at some of the most painful moments in our lives. I'm not talking about escaping from sorrow or denying grief. I'm talking about the discovery of a deep, resonating note of hope and purpose that incorporates suffering into a profound and beautiful harmony...."

Bear in mind that Beth Stroud, who had been an ordained elder in the Eastern PA Conference of the United Methodist Church, was found guilty of violating the Book of Discipline of the UMC due to living in an open lesbian relationship with another woman. Her ministerial credentials were revoked and she is now a layperson with membership as such in the United Methodist Church. The "sermon" above was not preached in the capacity of being an appointed pastor of Germantown UMC, but rather it was a lay person's message! As noted elsewhere on Circuit Rider's Range, this incident places the United Methodist Church and its leadership in a very awkward position -- the message out of this Beth mess is that it is perfectly OK to be in an open lesbian relationship with another woman as a lay member of the UMC, but it is not permissable to be in such a relationship and be a pastor at the same time! But rest assured that Beth will be deeply involved in the life and ministry of the Germantown UMC in the future -- and while her ministerial credentials were taken from her, she still has come out of this debacle smelling like a very sweet rose and the positive publicity she is getting will elevate her to the status of being one of the great "martyrs" in the ranks of professing "Christianity" during the latter days of 2004! Watch for an onslaught of "sympathy" coming from a number of sources, including persons who hold the rank of bishop in the UMC!

Rainbow coalition: Gay influx helps Asbury Park rebound
By JOHN CURRAN
Associated Press Writer

+SNIP+ The East Coast has a new gay mecca, and it is Asbury Park.

With its seaside setting, shabby-chic real estate and liberal local government, the city most often associated with corrupt New Jersey politics and rocker Bruce Springsteen is now the place to summer, to party, to invest - especially if you're gay. +SNIP+

In some respects, Asbury Park is an unlikely place for such a movement: Named after a Methodist bishop and developed in the 19th century by a visitor to the religious camp meetings at neighboring Ocean Grove, it was originally intended to be a temperance resort. +MORE+

Methodists to debate 'compatibility' of gays at conference
Backlash from southern states feared over lesbian minister's acquittal

+SNIP+ "We're in a crisis here," said Rev. James Moore, pastor of St. Mark United Methodist Church in Atlanta, a church that includes a heavily gay congregation. "As much as I applaud what happened in Seattle, this decision really strikes at the heart of who we are."

+SNIP+ Recommendations to alter Methodist laws about gays will be made by delegates who want further acceptance of gays in the church as well as those who seek to make the church code more "orthodox," said Patricia Miller, executive director of Confessing Movement, a group opposed to gay clergy.

"There are people working on a proposal to work on the damage of what happened as a result of the Dammann trial," Miller said. +MORE+

MADRID (Reuters) - Spain will legalize homosexual marriages and grant equal rights to gay couples, incoming Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said Thursday.

The move is likely to stir controversy in one of Europe's most Catholic countries as the Vatican condemns same-sex unions and homosexuality was banned under Spanish dictator Francisco Franco. +MORE+

Life after gay marriage
By Chad Graham
Excerpted from The Advocate

It may be hard to imagine in the midst of the same-sex marriage firestorm that's engulfing the country, but if the people who predict public opinion are correct, in another two decades gay men and lesbians will likely live in a world that won't think twice about their weddings. By then, newspapers won't be interested in reporting on whether ceremonies feature cakes topped by two grooms, two brides, or a bride and a groom. Planners who cater to same-sex weddings will be a dime a dozen. +MORE+

Out of the margins, into the mainstream
Mary Wiltenburg
The Christian Science Monitor

Fran Fifis and Mary Cardaras, who are raising Fifis's sons, are among a growing number of gay couples to head US households.

+SNIP+ Over the past three decades, America's attitude toward its gay children has evolved . . . gradually, sometimes painfully, one family at a time. But change it has, at a pace that has quickened perceptibly every decade. Surveys show public acceptance of gays underwent nearly a generation of change between 1990 and 1995 alone, and US court rulings have more or less kept pace.

Some local clergy performing, honoring same-sex unions
By BRIAN LEWIS
Staff Writer, The Tennessean

Some ministers feel it's their duty to officiate at such ceremonies.
+SNIP+

And while some denominations officially frown on the practice, ministers covertly do it anyway, said the Rev. Joretta Marshall, dean of pastoral theology at Eden Theological Seminary in Denver.

"There are a whole lot of us that do them without the blessing of the church," said Marshall, a United Methodist minister and a Vanderbilt University graduate. "I do holy unions, only I don't say I do holy unions. However, I say I participate in honoring relationships between gay and lesbian folks."

Mark Jordan, a religion professor at Atlanta's Emory University who is working on a book about blessings of same-sex relationships, said that when a gay couple goes to their religious leader, it is often after a long period of reflection about what their relationship means. +MORE+

Homosexuality, in the Biblical Sense
New Gay Theology Challenges Traditional Views of Scripture and Intimacy
By Bill Broadway

Robert Goss sits on the radical edge of homosexual theology, calling for churches to abandon centuries-old concepts of "normativity" and accept gay men and lesbians for what he says they are: people made in the image of God whose sexuality is a divine blessing.

Goss believes such a change is inevitable, that a diverse and increasingly vocal movement called "queer theology" will create an impact on Christianity matching that of the 16th-century Protestant Reformation. +MORE+

Debate on gay unions splits along generations
By Amanda Paulson

+SNIP+ In fact, the biggest divide over gay rights in America today may not be along political parties or religious factions, but among generations.

In a recent Gallup poll, 72 percent of those aged 18-29 agreed homosexual relations should be legal, compared with 39 percent of those aged 65 and older. Most Americans don't believe same-sex couples should be able to marry, yet 59 percent of incoming college freshmen support same-sex marriage, according to the latest survey by the Higher Education Research Institute. +MORE+

Out at the Prom - More gay teens than ever are taking same-sex dates to prom. And instead of sparking controversy, schools are saying, what’s the big deal?
by Julie Scelfo
Newsweek Web Exclusive

June 9 -Allen Wolff readied himself for prom like millions of other teenage boys.. On the afternoon of May 25, the 17-year-old from Syracuse, New York, showered and shaved, leaving intact a thin goatee, donned a rental tux and silver vest, then coated his normally spiky locks with a generous portion of hair gel.

After escorting his date into the balloon-enhanced splendor of the Baker High School prom, he enjoyed a night that he later described as “absolutely amazing.” “We danced, ate chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate chip cannolis, and drank lots and lots of soda,” he reported. Yet unlike the other boys at the dance, the date on his arm was not a winsome girl in a graceful dress, but Misko Lencek-Inagaki, a boy in a black tux and silver bowtie.

Allen and Misko are joining peers from Wisconsin to West Virginia in revolutionizing the traditional high school prom. More gay teens than ever are turning out for this year’s big night in gowns and tuxes-or gowns and gowns, or tuxes and tuxes. But instead of sparking controversy, schools across the country are welcoming them. “It’s exploding,” says Alice Leeds, a spokesperson for Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, a nationwide advocacy group known as PFLAG. Brenda Melton, president of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), says that it has become almost commonplace in urban and suburban areas for a student to bring a date of the same sex to the prom-and that in most schools, it’s really no big deal. +MORE+

Amid intense debate on 'gay' rights in state and local governments throughout the U.S., the U.N. Commission on Human Rights is preparing to vote on a resolution calling on all countries "to promote and protect the human rights of all persons regardless of their sexual orientation."

The resolution is "a historic opportunity to advance [homosexual] issues in international human-rights law," said the San Francisco-based International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission , or IGLHRC.

Lesbian Sues Christian Doctor Over Refusal to Inseminate
By Michael L. Betsch
CNSNews.com Staff Writer

CNSNews.com) - Homosexual advocacy groups are rallying behind a woman who claims she was unlawfully prevented from receiving artificial insemination because of a Christian physician's moral objection to impregnating lesbians.

When Guadalupe Benitez's health care provider referred her to the North Coast Women's Care Medical Group (NCWMG) in 1999, she was told that the medical facility was the only provider of obstetrics and gynecology available under her plan. Eager to conceive, she spent the next 11 months seeking fertility treatments at the San Diego-based NCWMG.

According to Benitez, the controversy began when she informed her assigned physician, Dr. Christine Brody, of her homosexuality and her desire to become pregnant by means of artificial insemination.+MORE+

Gay Baptist Church Opens

PHILADELPHIA- Baptist Pastor Jeri Williams said in a perfect world she wouldn't have to set up a congregation geared specifically toward gays and lesbians – something she said God told her to do a year ago. But Williams said many homosexuals often feel out of place in American Baptist churches. And because some church rules forbid gays from holding leadership posts, and because of a deep church divide over homosexuality, Williams said, a fully unified church between gays and non-gays "ain't going to happen" anytime soon. That's why she set out to start Fusion Baptist Church.

Pastor, wife reflect on gay union, repercussions

Daily Nebraskan

+SNIP+ And thus began the planning, the soul-searching and ultimately the story Yost, Leak and Lincoln Pastor Jay Vetter and his wife Maureen shared Sunday at Lincoln's Southminster United Methodist Church, 2915 S. 16th St.

The meeting was planned as a function of Lincoln's newly officiated reconciling United Methodist group, which works to "enable full participation of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities in the life of the United Methodist Church, both in policy and practice," according to the Reconciling Ministries Network Web site.+SNIP+

The most painful part to me is that ... a number of people have cut off their relationship with me, cut off their relationship with the church and they haven't even talked to me," Jay Vetter said. "That's sad." But, Jay Vetter said, those who have left his congregation prove to be the only negative result of Leak and Yost's union. That the church and community is having to discuss the concept of homosexual unions, he said, is a positive step in what Maureen Vetter called the "civil rights issue of our day."+MORE+

Lesbian Couple Has First Baby of the Year in DC

Celebrating the first baby born in the new year is a media tradition. This year there was a new twist to the old tale in the Washington, D.C., area the beaming parents were lesbians. The news was splashed across the front page of the Washington Post on Jan. 2.

Helen Rubin, 33, gave birth to a baby girl at one minute after midnight in the new year, after fifteen long hours of labor. Her partner of twelve years, Joanna Bare, 35, was at her side. The couple had expected a boy and had settled on a male name and were not prepared for the gender surprise. +SNIP+

Even the conservative Washington Times got into the act with a favorable story. "This child is going to have a traditional family. She'll have traditional grandparents on both sides, traditional aunts and uncles. This is our family," said newly minted grandfather Howard Rubin. +MORE+

Canada OKs pro-'gay' books for kids - Parental views cannot override imperative of tolerance, diversity
By Art Moore
WorldNetDaily.com

A public school system that claims to promote diversity and tolerance should not ban books that advocate same-sex relationships to kindergartners, Canada's Supreme Court has ruled.

The high court said the Surrey School Board in British Columbia, near Vancouver, must revisit its ban on three books that also have stirred controversy in the U.S. – "Asha's Mums," "One Dad, Two Dads, Brown Dads, Blue Dads" and "Belinda's Bouque."

The case began in 1997, when an openly gay kindergarten teacher attempted to have the books approved as a learning resource. The school board's ban drew 5,000 letters of support from parents and just 1,000 in opposition.

However, Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin wrote in the 7-2 ruling on Dec. 20 that, "Parental views, however important, cannot override the imperative placed upon the British Columbia public schools to mirror the diversity of the community and teach tolerance and understanding of difference." +MORE+

Expert: Better HIV Drugs Won't Cure AIDS - Progress, Problems With New Drugs and Vaccines Revealed at Conference
By Daniel DeNoon
MSN WebMD

At each AIDS conference it's the same. Everyone hopes to hear about the magic bullet that will end the most terrible plague ever to visit mankind. This year's XIV International AIDS Conference may put an end to all that. The bottom line: no magic bullet now, or ever.

That's the reality check offered by Johns Hopkins University's Robert Siliciano, MD, PhD. In a sobering presentation, Siliciano made it clear that no drug will ever cure a person of HIV infection. The hope that remains is that new drugs and new immune-based treatments can keep HIV-infected people AIDS-free for the rest of their lives. +MORE+

Many gays with HIV don’t know it - findings may help explain spread of AIDS virus, experts say
By Charlene Laino
MSNBC

BARCELONA, Spain, July 8 — More than three-fourths of young urban gays infected with HIV don’t know it — and may unwittingly transmit the deadly virus to their partners, a major U.S. study suggests. Among young black homosexuals, the findings are even more alarming: More than nine in 10 were unaware they carried the AIDS virus, the study found.

The findings, released here Monday at the International AIDS Conference, signal a need to revive the passion with which the United States once tackled the epidemic — or face a possible resurgence, said Dr. Ron Valdiserri, deputy director of HIV, STD and TB at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.

“The study may help explain why many young gay and bisexual men in the United States are becoming infected,” said the CDC’s Duncan MacKellar, who led the work. Hundreds of thousands of gays are going untreated for HIV and may be spreading it unknowingly — and to unknowing persons — through unsafe sex, he said.

Another CDC study, also released Monday, showed that the rate of new HIV infections among gay and bisexual men is nine times higher than among women and heterosexual men. +MORE+
