UK: Promotion of homosexuality required of foster parents

Running out the door but could not help but post this item. It seems that the High Court of the UK has agreed that Christian parents who are unwilling to accept and promote homosexuality to children should be prevented from becoming foster parents.

Read it and weep:

High Court Finds Christian Parents Unsuitable

How vomitous. More details are available here.

Modern Israel — America and the UK-descended nations — truly are losing the ability to distinguish between the clean and the unclean (Ezek. 22:26).

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

Isaiah 5:20

  1. I like the fact you pointed this out, but not the event itself.

    One thing that so ironically drives this lack of distinction is the self-refuting philosophy that there can be such a thing as metaphysical neutrality:

    “The only absolute is that there are no absolutes.”
    “Really? Are you absolutely sure about that?”

    Someone’s point of view will be enforced on society inevitably and that means other points of view will be suppressed. People need to be sure that what society holds is the right point of view. But Satan seems to do his best work when he gets people, not to think in error, but not to think at all.

    It goes to further show that those promoting this lifestyle, although they claimed that they watned ‘equal’ treatment, they never did. They want special treatment, much like most minority groups; although I do not make the egregious mistake of grouping them as such, they have made a choice, a true ‘minority group’ is actually born as such.

    Good comments by Rakkav and Brian. They’re right.

    The homosexuals are trying to propagate themselves by getting control of other peoples’ kids. And in doing so, they want special treatment, and a society imposing their rules on a weak minded people.

    I don’t know. From abortion to everything else, it seems like modern Israel doesn’t value children anymore. It’s ugly.

  4. I’m bothered by the UK’s statement that the parents aren’t being discriminated against, because of their religion, but only because of their beliefs about sexuality. Their beliefs about sexuality clearly come from their faith. If they’re going to make it a matter of policy, why not say it outright?

  5. Thanks for the comments, and I appreciate everyone’s contribution. And you’re right, Ms. Frazier: Why don’t they just come out and say that anyone of such a faith that believes this will not be able to adopt or serve as foster parents? I suppose that they are trying to say that they are not against the faith, only a particular belief of the faith (which is nothing more than smoke and mirrors).

    To be sure, there is, indeed, a strong and passionate homosexual lobby pressing for more than simply to be “left alone.” I don’t think that it is a matter of the US or the UK no longer valuing children, in a sense — though they do show this in a number of ways: abortion on demand, educational unions & organizations that serve adults even to the detriment of children, etc. Rather, in cases like this, I think that it is a matter of true values becoming so messed up that our leaders think they are doing good for children, when ultimately they are doing a horrific wrong (cf. John 16:2) by those children.

    As for “the homosexuals,” I have to say that I try not to lump everyone together. I have received contacts from viewers of our program or readers of our literature who were, themselves, homosexuals but who were strugging against their sinful pulls and against their upbringing, and I would hate to group them all together under one label.

    The issue here is really one of confusion in an entire society, not just the efforts of one group — after all, I suspect the UK judges are not, themselves, homosexual (at least not all of them), and that they truly do believe they are helping to prevent intolerant, unjust people (that is, faithful “Christians”) from spreading their narrow-minded, unhealthy views.

    Interestingly, some (including heterosexuals) would use Steve’s words to describe Christians who want to adopt: “The Christians are trying to propagate themselves by getting control of other people’s kids. And in doing so, they want special treatment, and a society imposing their rules on a weak-minded people.” In fact, outside of the issue of adoption, many in society have been making similar comments about Christians for years.

    Like 13brian’s sentiment, they would say that this Christian family is not being persecuted — they have chosen to have this faith and desire to teach to children a sick value (that homosexuality is a “sin”) that modern society has deemed abhorrent. They would say that it isn’t anything “personal,” but that the state simply can’t in good faith (almost a pun there) voluntarily allow a child to go to the home of bigots to be raised as a bigot.

    Great underlying principles, but atrociously misapplied.

    So, I don’t blame the “homosexual lobby” so much as I blame the leaders of our society and those who are supposed to powerfully teach the real difference between the clean and the unclean (Ezek 22:26). They have failed in their duty before God and, as a result, a society that strives to do the right thing no longer has any idea of what the right thing even is and finds itself proundly declaring evil good and good evil (). Very sad to see — but motivating, as well, and a reminder that we have a job to do.

    “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20)

    (That verse applies so directly, I think I will add it to the text above! Typing the original entry on my phone left me a bit limited in what I could do.)

  6. One more comment which will hopefully illuminate your last one, Mr. Smith.

    I’m working with a model (obviously not official Church doctrine, but something I hope can be looked at in due time) that predicts one can draw exact parallels between the Holy Spirit plus the eight cognitive processes of man in ordered pairs, the Nine Beatitudes of Matthew 5 and the Seven Churches plus the two periods of persecution (the acute one, then the Tribulation).

    On that basis, I’d like to point out: we are still in an era where “Blessed are the peacemakers” is being overemphasized by the world and by much of the Church of God, but that very “personal” value system is being overturned in the world by the imposition of arbitrary and “impersonal” standards that have a facade of logic but which are in facts shining examples of sophism.

    In other words, “nothing personal, folks, we just don’t like your faith-based group value system, we think it’s illogical and categorically wrong [as if!] and we’re going to take legal measures to suppress it.”

    “Blessed are they who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for they shall be called the sons of God.”

    Of course those who oppose homosexuality are and will be persecuted. But isn’t it amazing how the medical profession stays silent on the many negative health consequences resulting from the gross sexual acts homosexuals in which they engage. It’s not just the STD’s only, but diseases such as anal cancer which is 90% higher with homosexuals than heterosexuals. However as many heterosexuals turn a blind eye to or actually condone this behaviour – is this because many heterosexuals engage in some of the same sex acts as homosexuals – acts such as oral and anal sexual activity.
