St. Jude Catholic Church of the City of Westlake Village was defaced on Easter weekend. The following brief story appeared in the April 11, 2013 issue of The Acorn, a community newspaper that serves Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Oak Park, and Westlake Village in California:
â€œVandals targeted the 32000 block of Lindero Canyon Road sometime between Fri., March 29 and Sat., March 30, authorities said.
â€œThe graffiti included a reference to homosexuality, several four-letter words and a swastika, a source told The Acorn. One scrawl reportedly said, â€˜God is gay.â€™â€
The story got no attention outside the small communities mentioned above.
I happened to see the story because I was in the Los Angeles area for a business meeting and happened to pick up the community newspaper.
If some homosexual group had been the target of anti-gay graffiti, the story would have been carried by every news outlet. Hate crime charges would have been leveled against the perpetrators. Sensitivity training would have been demanded by homosexual groups across the country.
Any time someone makes a derogatory comment about homosexuality, the gaystapo goes into action. The media comply with front-page stories to insure that the person who said negative things about homosexuals never dares do it again.
The Huffington Post carries dozens of articles about politicians and Hollywood types that come out in favor of homosexual marriage. They want to continue to work in Hollywood. Their pro-homosexual stance is similar to what Rome demanded of its citizens.
As long as the people offered a pinch of incense to the Roman gods, they were permitted to worship their own god or gods. Consider this story about Polycarp who lived between AD 70 and 155:
â€œThe emperors of Rome had unleashed bitter attacks against the Christians during this period, and members of the early church recorded many of the persecutions and deaths. Polycarp was arrested on the charge of being a Christian â€” a member of a politically dangerous cult whose rapid growth needed to be stopped. Amidst an angry mob, the Roman proconsul took pity on such a gentle old man and urged Polycarp to proclaim, â€˜Caesar is Lord.â€
â€œIf only Polycarp would make this declaration and offer a small pinch of incense to Caesarâ€™s statue he would escape torture and death. To this Polycarp responded, â€˜Eighty-six years I have served Christ, and He never did me any wrong. How can I blaspheme my King who saved me?â€™ Steadfast in his stand for Christ, Polycarp refused to compromise his beliefs, and thus, was burned alive at the stake.â€
People arenâ€™t burned at the stake in America; they are burned by the media for any opposition to the gay agenda. At the same time, homosexuals are protected by the media when they attack people who oppose same-sex sex and homosexual marriage. Some of the attacks have led people to lose their jobs and even be sued for not complying to homosexual demands.
