Bribed to attend gay pride parade

Apparently the NHS in the UK can’t afford to pay ambulance drivers overtime when they are on duty, but in an effort to keep up appearances,  can afford to pay them to attend a gay pride parade:

Ambulance staff are being offered overtime to take part in a gay march – regardless of their sexuality.

Dozens of paramedics, the majority of whom are heterosexual, are being encouraged to walk along Brighton’s seafront in their uniform at this year’s Pride festival.

They will be provided with refreshments and driven to and from the resort, all adding to the bill for the taxpayer.

A paramedic who contacted the Daily Mail said South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Trust had decided to pay its workers £40 each to take part in their own time because it was feared that not enough would volunteer for the event.

The money is the equivalent of two hours’ overtime pay, although paramedics say the trust has recently stopped paying overtime while they are actually on duty, blaming financial pressure.

Companies in Canada are vying to outdo each other in politically correct gaiety; IBM, once a bastion of blue suited conservativeness, sponsors a float in the Toronto gay pride parade and is proud of its diversity:

IBM Canada Ltd. was reported by the Globe and Mail newspaper to have a gay, lesbian, bisexual and “transgendered” group, and to have entered a contingent in Toronto’s gay pride festivities.

IBM – which also has a gay-lesbian-bisexual-transgendered “task force” – should be a place where people feel comfortable being openly gay, according to the corporation’s vice-president of workforce diversity. Anyone who has a problem with that need not apply to IBM, he added.

As you will note, IBM is so diverse that anyone who does not share its enthusiasm for an actively gay lifestyle is not welcome.

    Is homosexuality a sin? And who do we believe?
    God is the ultimate and sovereign judge for sin. Homosexuality is sin by His order; it is not decided by public opinion or deceived/false clergy. Changing societies do not dictate God’s standards. Sin is defined by God for us in the Bible. It is the source for what God says is holy and righteous or sin and abomination. Hebrews 13:8 states that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever; he does not “go with the flow.”

    God’s Word says that homosexuality is unnatural, a perversion, an abomination, fornication, vile affections, and a great sin against Him. He states any sexual act outside of marriage is adultery (hetro or homo sexual). Sex is to be between man and woman within marriage.
    Is homosexuality a sin? What does this mean?
    God’s design for natural sexual relationships is part of His plan. Homosexuality falsifies what God designed. Sin often means not only rejecting God but denying or rejecting how and why we are made. Though it may be considered acceptable by some today — even in some churches — it is not acceptable to God. And we need to take that seriously.

    Sexual sins were rampant in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. (This is the origin of the word sodomy.) Despite warnings, they refused to repent. God destroyed those cities and it was recorded as a warning to all future generations.
    (Genesis 18:20-21, 20 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;
    21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.
    Genesis 19:4-5 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:
    5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.
    2 Peter 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly.) Some additional scriptures on homosexuality are found in:
    • Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination

    • Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

    Romans 1:26-27 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
    The price paid for homosexuality and other fornications are told in:
    1 Corinthians 6:9-10 9Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
    10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
    Jude 6-7 6And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
    7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire
    Romans 1:18 18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
    In spite of the growing secular humanist trend to think “it’s ok to be gay,” it’s not a righteous lifestyle. Most vocal Christians are not homophobic, but are trying to share Christ’s love for homosexuals and trying to keep them from horrific judgment.
    Is homosexuality a sin? Is there hope for forgiveness?
    There absolutely is hope for homosexuals. God can cleanse and purify all persons from sin. As many scriptures as there are that address sin, there are more that speak of forgiveness and redemption. He is able to give deliverance to any who sincerely desire true freedom and salvation. Such is demonstrated in 1 Corinthians 6:11 (KJV): “And such were some of you: but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” This verse says “some of you were,” meaning they became past acts.

    We are offered the empowering Spirit of God to help us turn from our sins. Coming out of drug addiction, homosexuality, pornography, or other sin isn’t always easy but God will provide the way. Christians are to “love” into the kingdom, those who desire repentance and to live by His natural plan.

    Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of our sins and rose again the third day. He desires that we repent and be forgiven of our sins by coming into a personal relationship with Him.

    I love how gay activists have tried to name this civil rights issue and it is
    Not. It is an attempt by a group to mainstream their lifestyle. Lets get a few facts in order.

    1. The first and most important consideration is that God said that it is an abomination for men to lay with men and that those who do so would have blood on their hands and their life would be forfeit. Leviticus 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

    2. The scientists have discovered that Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed exactly in the manner that the Bible said it was. If you look at a satellite photo of Sodom and Gomorrah, you will see that a while dots shows up around these two cities, evidence of the intense amount of ash covering them. Also, perfectly round balls of 98% pure Sulphur (brimstone) are embedded in the remaining structures. First of all, there is nowhere on earth that Sulphur is found in such high concentrations, the most is 40% and that only when there is geo-thermal activity, of which there is none in that area. Also, Sulphur is NEVER found as a round ball. It was compared to every single piece of Sulphur at the Smithsonian Institute and none of them match this kind of Sulphur, either in Shape or color. The evidence is clear that something out of the ordinary happened over there and the few remaining structures show signs of intense heat and melting. In other words, Sodom and Gomorrah was “DESTROYED” and then PRESERVED as a reminder to the people as to what can happened when you live outside the will of God. This lie the gay community is telling is that it was destroyed because of a lack of hospitality is bunk. The words clearly says that ALL the men were homosexual and wanted to have sex with the two angels that God had sent.

    3 Back in 1973, gay activists led a hate campaign against the psychiatrists because up until then, doctor with years of clinical experience and who made observations and assessments, classified homosexuality as a deviant,(Psychosexual Disorder). Because of the hate campaign, they were able to intimidate the medical community into deleting the diagnosis. Not based on new clinical observations or new information but base on VIOLENT activism against the psychiatric community.

    The fact is, gay marriage is wrong and against the will of God and the people of God need to speak up or they will be teachu=ing it to our children.

    I guess when little boys come home and want to have a gay weddings with their little male friends; maybe then parents will see the dangers here,

    WHERE ARE THE PASTORS, MINISTERS AND PEOPLE OF GOD TO SPEAK OUT AGAINT THIS.
