Bradley LaShawn Fowler, 39, of Canton, Mich is a homosexual man who is a pioneer. A pioneer is someone who goes first into areas that might not see initial success, but pave the way for those who follow. Fowler is suing Zondervan Publishers for $60 million and another $10 million from Thomas Nelson Publishing, because they publish Bibles that speak of homosexuality as a sin. This, he states, has caused him harm for many years and now he wants to be compensated. While he represents himself and no one believes he will win his lawsuit, he is a pioneer.

Think back some years ago, and who would have believed kindergarten age children would be reading books about two mommies. Who would have believed that homosexual kissing would be on network television, let alone a movie that extols the virtues of the perversion. And no one would have believed that states would actually legalize homosexual marriage, but here we are.

It took pioneers who were willing to start the process. People who did not care about initial success but rather would give themselves for the long term goals. Pioneers like Bradley LaShawn Fowler who one day will receive recognition for starting the process of lawsuits and incarcerations that will surely come to any and all who publicly hold a biblical view of homosexuality. It seems to me that those of us who hold that view need some pioneers of our own!
