Russia bans all gay propaganda at the Sochi games

I commend Russia for banning all gay propaganda at the Sochi games. The elevation of perversion to the level of a fundamental value that has to be nurtured and nourished and promoted is absolutely sick.

Men and women with homosexual tendencies must be accepted with respect, compassion and sensitivity. Nonetheless homosexual acts must be considered wrong and intrinsically disordered because they are contrary to the natural law.

The Bible clearly and unequivocally condemns homosexual acts (Gen 1:27-28; Gen 2:24; Matt 19: 4-6; Rom 1:24-27; 1 Cor 6:10; 1 Tim 1:10 etc.). Science too has found no "gay gene".

There is a distinction between the word 'homosexual' and 'gay'. A homosexual is a person who has, to some extent, this homosexual condition. If he honestly and quietly deals with it in cooperation with the grace of God he may come out of this difficulty and come back to normal human relationships. In contrast a 'gay' is somebody who says, 'I am like this, I will be like this, I want to be treated like this, and I want special privileges because I am like this.' Now if somebody is not only homosexual, but a gay, declaring, 'This is how I am, and I want this to be respected legally, socially and so on' – such a person will never come out of the difficulty.

Like Russia, all nations must work together to curb the danger of identifying with the homosexual condition as if it was the supreme expression of the identity of the individual which would deprive the individual of healing and happiness.
