Speak boldly. All it takes for evil to reign is for good men and women to do and say nothing. So do not let the intimidators silence you. Speak the truth in love and leave the results to God.
As Os Guinness reminds us, in the end, Christian persuasion is “not for salesmen, propagandists . . . spin doctors . . . and the like.” The art of Christian persuasion “is for those who desire to share the way of Jesus because of their love for Jesus, and who know that love is also a key part of any human being’s search for knowledge and truth.”
“And true to the Holy Spirit, Christian persuasion must always know and show that the decisive power is not ours but God’s.”
So we do not fear the intimidation, we can boldly and persistently speak the truth, with gentleness, peacefully, defending the children, being salt and light in our world.
Contrast this patient, loving, good-fruit producing method, which brings peace, safety for children, good health, stable government, prosperous and peaceful nations, with the seemingly incredibly successful, tactically phenomenal, strategic campaign conducted over the past few years by the militant homosexuals.
They have used every trick of salesmanship, propaganda, PR, political spin doctoring, persuasion, accessing government funding, using the full might of the media, Hollywood, the entertainment industry, political lobbying, and then when that has not worked they have then conducted one of the most successful mass intimidation campaigns ever seen.
Anyone left standing who still opposes their worldview is then blacklisted, bullied, labelled a bigot, bombarded with hate messages, targeted in cyberspace, at their work places, at schools and in their homes and communities.
Then when that doesn’t work, they are increasingly aiming to use the full force of the State to silence their opponents, using anti-discrimination laws and other powers of the State to spread further fear. Of course these things are not new, tyrants throughout history have always operated this way, however what we are seeing now is, I believe, one of the most potent campaigns by a minority group to influence a society for ill that we have possible ever seen.
Contrast the way of peace with the hatred and vilification hurled upon anyone who dare oppose the juggernaut of the same-sex movement. Prominent homosexuals Dolce & Gabbana spoke up recently saying they don’t support 'marriage' for homosexuals, same-sex adoption and the artificial creation of children.
The response from the leadership of the juggernaut was ugly and revealing. Led by Elton John there were demands to blacklist Dolce & Gabbana and to boycott buying their products. No tolerance or acceptance of free speech, just vengeance, punishment and silencing.
The comments were made in a celebrity interview on Panorama, an Italian TV show – where Domenico Dolce proclaimed, “You are born to a mother and a father — or at least that’s how it should be. I call children of chemistry, synthetic children.”
Miranda Devine rightly commented, “It takes gay people to come out and say what straight people are too intimidated to say.”
Keep speaking the truth in love. Do not be afraid.
“Fool’s Talk: Recovering the Art of Christian Persuasion.” Os Guinness.
Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex "marriage" intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.
There is “a time to be silent, and a time to speak”. (Ecclesiastes 3:7). Now is the time to speak, so please speak up and defend children, truth and freedom. Craig Manners
