EU Approves Ban on ‘Homophobia’; Christians Remain Silent

For those who don’t think this can happen in the United States, I recommend you take a reality break. The liberal courts are more then happy to consider foreign law as they make decisions about our laws. With the “success” of the homosexual agenda to be considered “normal”, Christians are going to have to take a very firm stand on this, or like Europe, roll over and let it happen.

(AgapePress) – The European Union has unanimously approved a resolution banning “homophobia.” A Christian attorney in Mississippi explains why that should concern the citizens of the United States.
The resolution, called “Homophobia in Europe,” defines homophobia as “an irrational fear and aversion of homosexuality and of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people based on prejudice, similar to racism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, sexism.” It calls for action against member states that do not implement programs directed at fair treatment of homosexuals in employment and occupation. It also seeks to “ensure that same-sex partners enjoy the same respect, dignity and protection as the rest of society.”
Steve Crampton, chief counsel for the American Family Association
Center for Law & Policy, says although the resolution is not law, it could eventually affect the United States.
Steve Crampton”Our Supreme Court seems enamored with citing to foreign sources of law,” Crampton observes. And if that mindset continues, he fears that “what happens in the European Union today is going to become the law and policy of America tomorrow.”
For that reason, the attorney advises that family advocates in the U.S. “absolutely … should be concerned about this — and we should be rising up right now before it’s too late,” he adds.
Crampton asserts that the EU resolution is just further proof that society is continuing its slide toward moral depravity. “When you consider that [approval of the measure came] by a vote of almost four-to-one — and it was basically a restatement of the radical homosexual agenda — there is great cause for concern for those of us who adhere to the traditional, biblical teachings that homosexual conduct is sinful,” he says.
The “Homophobia in Europe” resolution was passed by a vote of 468-149; there were 41 abstentions. Christians and conservatives did not protest the resolution, prompting one former member of Britain’s Parliament and a homosexual rights advocate to say that the “lunatic fringe” — Christians and conservatives — have learned that “it does not pay anymore to shout against gays and lesbians in the Parliament itself.”

    It’s coming to America. Probably sooner than later. We will do nothing, say nothing and Christians will be fined or jailed for saying that homosexuality is sin. My goodness, how fast the tide is turning everywhere. I can easily see the homosexual agenda bringing about the constant persecution of God’s church here in America. It will start with a resolution stating that we cant call homosexuality a sin. Then it will escalate to the persecution of all Christians because we oppose it. Its coming – no doubt.

  2. I have to agree with you on this too. All we can do is continue to hold to Biblical truth and take the persecution when it comes. I hope Jesus comes soon!!
