‘Bible’ lawsuit may be sign of things to come

Posted by Scott on July 31, 2008

Pro-family advocates say Christians should get used to legal harassment such as the lawsuit a homosexual activist recently filed against two Bible publishers.

Bradley LaShawn Fowler of Canton, Michigan, does not like the fact that the Bibles produced by Zondervan and Thomas Nelson Publishers both accurately convey God’s prohibition against homosexual behavior. So he is suing in federal court, seeking $10 million from Thomas Nelson and $60 million from Zondervan.

 

Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, says Bible-believing Christians had better get ready for more of this type of sniping. “Obviously, this is a frivolous publicity stunt, but this is a portent of things to come,” he warns.

 

“We know that the homosexual activists are now targeting, essentially, born-again Christians and committed Catholics and Mormons who oppose their agenda. They’re out to re-write the Bible, to say that the Bible really does not condemn homosexual practice, which it obviously does,” says LaBarbera. “Ultimately, we believe they’ll be doing more and more of these lawsuits against Christians and Christian companies.”

 

LaBarbera says the suit reminds him of British actor and homosexual activist Sir Ian McKellen, who has admitted to ripping pages that contain scriptures condemning homosexuality out of Gideon Bibles in hotel rooms. “The fact is whether you rip the pages out or not, or whether you sue, or whether you pass a law against it, the Word of God still stands,” he emphasizes. “And God’s authority on that issue still stands, no matter what man does.”
 
The judge in the case has denied Fowler’s request for a court-appointed attorney, saying the court had “very genuine concerns” about the legitimacy of the claims in the lawsuit.

    EVERYONE READING THIS BLOG NEEDS TO PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THECOMMENT BELOW. THIS IS HOW THE WORLD SEES ITS SINFULNESS..”JUST ANOTHER CRUSADE BY A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO HATE ANOTHER GROUP OF PEOPLE”. WELL, THAT IS NOT FACT OR HISTORY I AM AFRAID.

    First there were the people of England who were tired of the King’s tyrannous rule. They were persecuted and beaten down until they moved away to form America. Then there were the Continental Natives(Indians). White people beat them down and persecuted them and stole their land from them, forcing them onto Indian Reservations. Then there were the Africans. White men brought them to America as slaves and beat them down and persecuted them. During which, all this time, women in general were beaten down and persecuted for their gender. Now that all of this has been put beyond us, aside from a few select bigots, the white man, joined by the Native American and African American, and women, and those of all races, have chosen now to pick on someone else. Who? Homosexuals. Why? The human race has a terrible need for self destruction. It’s time to let go of that hatred.

    WE DO NOT HATE THE HOMOSEXUAL OR AT LEAST THE CIRCLES I RUN IN. I AM POSITIVE MANY PEOPLE IN THE WORLD HATE HOMOSEXUALS, BUT PEOPLE HATE ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE. HOWEVER, THE HISTORY YOU HAVE SITED HERE DOES NOT FLOW INTO HOMOSEXUALITY. BEING AN INDIAN WAS NOT A SIN. BEING A WOMAN IS NOT A SIN. BEING POOR IS NOT A SIN. BEING BLACK, WHITE, ASIAN OR ANY OTHER ETHNIC GROUP IS NOT SIN. HOWEVER, HOMOSEXUALITY IS A CHOICE IN THE WAY A LIFE IS LIVED AND GOES AGAINST THE VERY DESIGN GOD MADE MAN AND WOMAN TO FUNCTION. HOMOSEXUALITY IS NOT ANOTHER ETHNIC GROUP AS MUCH AS YOU MIGHT LIKE FOR IT TO BE. HOMOSEXUALITY BRINGS ON A HOST OF PROBLEMS: TWO MEN OR TWO WOMEN CANNOT PRODUCE A CHILD TOGETHER (NOT TALKING ABOUT ADOPTION OR OTHER FORMS OF CHILD BEARING HERE), TWO MEN CANNOT PRODUCE A CHILD TOGETHER, TWO MALE DONKEYS CANNOT PRODUCE A BABY DONKEY, AND SO ON. SOMETHING ELSE THAT HAS COME OUT OF THIS LIFE IS “AIDS”. THIS CANNOT BE COMPARED TO A WOMAN, AN INDIAN, A BLACK MAN OR A WHITE MAN OF NORMAL FUNCTION. THE REASONING DOES NOT FOLLOW AND HATRED IS WHAT THE HOMOSEXUAL MOVEMENT IS HIDING BEHIND SO THEY DO NOT HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE SIN OF THEIR LIFE. GOD DEMANDS THAT WE ALL DEAL WITH OUT SINS. I CAN TELL YOU THAT HOMOSEXUALITY IS NOT AN UNFORGIVEABLE SIN. IF I LIKE TO OVEREAT, LOOK AT PORN, LIE, STEAL, OR WHATEVER OTHER SIN WE CAN THINK OF…THEY ARE ALL FORGIVEABLE CONFESSED
    AND REPENTED OF BEFORE GOD. HOWEVER, THE CONSEQUENCES OF EACH SIN MAY BE DIFFERENT.

    IT IS NOT HATRED THAT THE SCRIPTURES OR CHRISTIANITY IS TALKING ABOUT, BUT THAT
    IS THE LEFT WING “BY-WORD” THAT THEY LIKE TO HIDE BEHIND INSTEAD OF CONFRONTING THE REALITY OF THE SINFULNESS OF IT. I AM NOT HERE TO HATE ANYONE, BUT I WILL TELL IT LIKE IT IS AND I WILL NOT HIDE BEHIND SOMETHING LIKE “HATE” IN ORDER TO DODGE WHAT REALLY IS BEHIND SOMETHING. GOD IS CALLING HIS PEOPLE BACK TO A HOLINESS BEFORE HIM. WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE AN ENITRE HOST OF FORMER-HOMOSEXUALS JOIN IN THIS HOLINESS, BUT AS LONG AS ONE IS LIVING OPENLY IN SIN THAT CANNOT BE ACCOMPLISHED.

    LOVINGLY IN CHRIST,
    SB

    Confronting sin is not easy nor is it pleasant, but it cannot be watered down either when an entire society is being washed away in its tide. The organized church (not true church of the Scriptures) has played a substantial part in dumbing down God’s Word for society, making sin to be nothing more than just a scratch on the skin, and not preaching the gospel truth in its entirety. I apologize for any offense I might have made towards anyone of the homosexual movement, but I do not apologize for the truth of God’s Word about the subject. I can make mistakes, but God’s Word is not mistaken about it and it is the truth about every matter.

    In Christ,
    SB
