The ‘gay Christian’: an oxymoron
I read in the Pink News that a “Christian council worker sues after being sacked for homophobic email.”
Denise Haye, 25, worked at Lewisham Council’s legal services department.
Last September, she used her work email address to send an email to Rev Sharon Ferguson, head of the Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement (sic).
She wrote that Rev Ferguson should be “ashamed” of herself and that homosexuality was “not normal” and a sin. Citing the importance of repenting in the “last days”, Haye added, in capitals, “the wages of sin is death”.
This is absolutely correct. The very fact that so many now view homosexuality as normal is a sign that we are in the last days. The Bible tells us that “the wages of sin is death”. Is it now a crime for a Christian to quote from the Bible when emailing another alleged believer? Or just via the council’s email system?
If this ‘reverend’ really were a Christian, she would surely have tried to settle her concerns in private with Denise Haye rather than going straight to the Council to complain. I’m sure she knows there is increasing persecution which Christians are experiencing in their places of work, so why would she want to subject a fellow believer to this?
She (Rev Ferguson) told PinkNews.co.uk: “I’m not questioning that she thought she was doing the right thing. But there was no love and compassion in her email. It was full of death and damnation.
This ‘gay Christian’ lives in la-la land. It’s a very dangerous place to be when dealing with matters of the soul. She thinks that she can sin and sin and never repent. She doesn’t even concede she is sinning. She’s a gonner at present.
What I have found by discussing matters on the internet with self-labelled ‘gay Christians’ is that they seem to be ‘gay’ first and have tried to reform Christianity around their sexuality.
You see, this wasn’t a difference of opinion (and that’s what it was, but blown up into a major ‘hate’-related incident, as usual) between two Christians, but between a homosexual and a PC dissident.
Haye is now taking Lewisham Council to court for unfair dismissal. She was suspended for six months and then dismissed.
What amazes me is that homosexuals have become such a selfish, pride-filled tribe that they don’t have a shred of understanding or compassion for this woman losing her job.
I have read the reader comments on the Pink News article. These are quite typical responses:
The only concern this bigot is showing by stating such drivel, is for herself
Says David North. They just don’t ‘get it’ that people are genuinely concerned and that is why we get involved. Why bother otherwise?
Regular Pink News commentator Adrian T chips in with this:
Good riddance to scum like this, sending such e-mails from the workplace. There should be no room for hate fuelled bigotry in the workplace.
See what I mean? They just cannot see the folly of their ways.
Disgusting. “the wages of sin is death”? That sounds like a threat to me.
It is a threat. From the Almighty. The Bible is full of threats, because the wages of sin is death. That’s why you need a Saviour.
Lee is unforgiving too:
Her email was full of death and damnation – I hope this matter has been passed onto the police for investigation as a hate crime.
What punishment would you like to see, Lee? Feeding her to the lions?
Jennifer Hynes writes this.
Can people stop calling these people Christian please? It gives the millions of queer Christians (like me) a really bad name.
This is mind-blowing in its ignorance.
Silly cow. Not only homophobic but as usually dragging Christianity down with it. As I have said before, I am a Christian
Yeah, it really sounds like it.
At this time, The Halcyon seems to be the only one concerned:
Sacking was a bit harsh
But it doesn’t cut ice with the others.
Homosexuals have been mollycoddled so long now that they are becoming like the street thugs who refuse to be ‘dissed’. On this evidence, they have become cruel and uncaring; totally unable to see the other person’s point of view. Worse than that, they think the other person should be treated as a ‘hate’ criminal.
It is actually a tragedy for our country. It would have been avoidable if we had a government that knew the difference between right and wrong and acted in the best interests of our country. It’s clear we’ve not had one of them for quite a while.
What Denise Haye did was out of love. I know, because that is also my motivation. The hatred is clearly expressed in the comments section of the Pink News. Black is now white and two plus two equals five. Everything is made to make sense, except reality.
My hope and prayer is that people will see that the sins of the flesh war against the spirit and so will repent, believe and be saved. The alternative is grim beyond our wildest imaginations.
