LifeSite News: Texas Republicans passed a platform that called homosexuality an “abnormal lifestyle choice” this weekend at their convention. The Republicans also affirmed their support for Biblical marriage and the sanctity of life.
“Homosexuality is an abnormal lifestyle choice,” the platform states.
It stated further:
We believe there should be no granting of special legal entitlements or creation of special status for homosexual behavior, regardless of state of origin, and we oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose homosexuality out of faith, conviction, or belief in traditional values. No one should be granted special legal status based on their LGBTQ+ identification.
“We affirm God’s biblical design for marriage and sexual behavior between one biological man and one biological woman,” the platform states. Biblical marriage “has proven to be the foundation for all great nations in Western civilization. We oppose homosexual marriage, regardless of state of origin.”
It also stated that the Obergefell v. Hodges decision, which legalized same-sex “marriage” in all 50 states, “has no basis in the Constitution and should be nullified.”
The platform also calls for “equal protection of the laws to all preborn children from the moment of fertilization” and an end to all state contracts with abortion vendors like Planned Parenthood. Texas Republicans also urged their party “to support programs that provide assistance to pregnant women” including reforming adoption rules, protecting “pregnant and parenting college students” and providing health insurance for the postpartum year.
The party also affirmed the biological reality of two sexes and suggested that legislation should be passed to allow “de-transitioners” to sue for damages against the medical professionals who mutilated their bodies. Read More …
Opinion: I had to read this article twice to determine if the Texas lawmakers were in an alternate universe. At some point over the last decade Prophecy Tracker has lamented the destruction of each and every Christian value that secular progressives have brought to the US.
What I am about to say is in no way a surrender to the dark forces that are destroying our Christian infrastructure, it is instead a belief that very soon the curtain will come down on the church age with the sound of a trumpet, and three words that only believers will hear:
Come up here (Rev. 4:1).
What is it about the rapture doctrine that makes Christians laugh nervously? Oh that, they say, but we have no idea when that will be, they say, when even a cursory look at the first 3.5 years of the tribulation found in Matthew 24:4-20, should help us realize that we are very close indeed to a flight upwards.
“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:6-7
Keep in mind that Matthew 24 was written to prepare a Jewish audience for the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7).
We have used the analogy of ‘coming attractions’ in a movie theatre many times. We have also quoted David Jeremiah’s idiom of ‘prophetic events cast a shadow before them’ many times. But if you want to see just how far the former most Christian nation on earth has fallen, read what the Texas lawmakers are trying to restore in the featured article.
Buckle up, no need to adjust the tray tables.
