THREE BLIND MICE? OR DO THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING?



Three pieces of news that speak loudly of one great theme, the acceptance of homosexuality not only in our nation but in many churches. So here they are, the unfortunate, tragic three;

1. "The church-affiliated Texas Christian University has announced plans to allocate apartment housing on its Fort Worth campus for homosexual students and their supporters. According to a report in the city's Star-Telegram newspaper, the school plans to open a section of the Tom Brown-Pete Wright apartments for "lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender students and allies."

2. The White House is allocating tickets for the upcoming Easter Egg Roll to gay and lesbian parents as part of the Obama administration's outreach to diverse communities. White House officials said that tickets for Monday's Easter Egg Roll event were distributed to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender organizations, but did not specify how many or to which ones. Representatives from Family Equality Council, Human Rights Campaign, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and other groups confirmed they were invited and encouraged to have their members participate.

"The Obama administration actually reached out to us as an organization, and said we want gay families there, and they are an important part of the American family fabric," said Jennifer Chrisler, executive director of the Boston-based Family Equality Council, which is helping spearhead the effort to organize families to attend. Chrisler said Tuesday she expects more than 100 gay and lesbian-headed families to take part in the egg roll."

3. "On CNN's "Larry King Live" this week, as "America's Pastor" Rick Warren did a soft shoe act on his role in the same-sex marriage battle over Proposition 8 in California.

"You know, Larry, there was a story within a story that never got told," he said. "In the first place, I am not an anti-gay or anti-gay marriage activist. I never have been, never will be. During the whole Proposition 8 thing, I never once went to a meeting, never once issued a statement, never – never once even gave an endorsement in the two years Prop 8 was going."

All three true,and sad, all three sad but true, all three accountable to almighty God who does have a huge problem with homosexuality as He does with all sin, but this sin in particular, as it strikes at the only relationship on earth that displays Christ and the Church, marriage between a man and a woman, the way God created and designed it to be. So while colleges, the President of the United States and famous pastors accept what God rejects, we must make or own choice as to whom we will serve on this day!
