A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS!

I guess it was only a matter of time but it still amazes me, and I also know I have said I could not be amazed, but here I am. There is an ad that is running in Italy that shows a nerwborn with a band on the wrist that reads "Homosexual"! This from the wires;

"Sexual orientation is not a choice," reads the slogan on the poster that was going up all across the central-northern Tuscany region and was published in national newspapers Wednesday.
Italy's main gay rights association ArciGay, for its part, praised the initiative, saying homosexuality is an "unchangeable fact that should be respected."

The power of marketing should not be under estimated. There will be people who will claim that people are born homosexual based on this ad. Unfortunately not many people take the time to primary source the headlines, sound bites, and ads they are bombarded with. And as unfortunate, is they give them automatic credibility. If it is on television, radio, or in the news it must be true. While there has been some outcry it will, like all outcry, die down and people will accept the ad regardless of the consequence to their society. This is what the homosexual movement has always counted on and for the most part, they have been right.

Parents are facing a daunting task in trying to protect their children from the onslaught of homosexuals. To be sure they are out to indoctrinate your children, I have said, preached, and written that over and over. If you do not believe this to be true you are ignoring and in my opinion, derelict in your duty as a parent. Ads on billboards say babies are born homosexual, it seems every television show and movie has a homosexual character shown in a positive light, and tragically there are those who profess Christ as their Savior who are now saying it does not matter all that much. It does matter it always has, at least to God and the good news is the answer is Jesus Christ who died to pay for all sins, including the sin of homosexuality.

But if it is no longer seen as a sin, then there is no need for a Savior. Which means homosexuals by the thousands are not receiving a gospel message, as tragically some of Gods people are not loving enough, nor possessing the courage to share that life changing message. How about you?
