Another in-service has gone by and, as usual. Some of the classes were good and useful. One in particular was downright worthless. It seems the instructor of a class labeled Homophobia, was very subtly trying to instill in our minds that being a homosexual is a normal lifestyle. The instructor did say that if I didn't agree with that lifestyle, she was not trying to change my opinion. I do not believe that. If that were the case, then why was a one hour block set aside for just that class? Earlier in the day we learned about battered women and men. I believe that some time should have been set aside during those two hours for this topic rather than an entire class.

When I joined the police department, I took an oath to serve and protect which I have and will continue to do until retire By writing this article, I do not infer that I intend to shirk my duties. I will Serve the community and give my 100% or more when called upon. I have no problem with answering calls from anyone, whether they are calls from heterosexuals or homosexuals. If given a call to assist someone who is a homosexual I will provide the service that I would provide for any other individual. I do not even have a problem working with or around homosexuals. I do not hate homosexuals. On the other hand, given the opportunity, I would show them that Jesus Christ loves them and show them numerous scriptures in the Bible stating that fact.

The problem I do have is a class labeled homophobia. That word is an attack on any Bible believing Christian, and I as a Bible believing Christian will not stand idly by and be attacked. Presumably someone at City Hall, the police department or the federal government is pushing the homosexual agenda on us, Television shows have gotten to the point where every channel has a homosexual on their shows arid everyone on the show accepts that immoral lifestyle. It appears that Hollywood is pushing an immoral lifestyle on us and we are supposed to accept it. Now the police academy is also pushing it. It seems as though the homosexual community's agenda is to throw out as much filth as possible and eventually we will get to the point where it will just be accepted as common practice.

Well it is wrong, It's still wrong in the Bible. Jesus still hates it. He loves the sinner and wants them to repent, but he still hates the sin. (Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today and forever.) I know that someone will say, Well Jesus never said anything about it being wrong. Let me give you a few verses that will hopefully clearly dispel that erroneous thought The Bible says in I John 5:7, "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. The rather is God, the Word is Jesus, according to John 1:1, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." There is another verse that proves that the Word is Jesus. It is John 1:14, "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

There are a few verses in the Bible where God tells us that he hates the homosexual lifestyle. 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." Deuteronomy 22:5, "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abominations unto the LORD thy God. Let's not forget God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for their wicked immoral homosexual lifestyle.

Do not forget 11 Timothy 3:16, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." it does not matter what man says, It matters what God says. God set these laws down in the Old Testament and continued them in the New Testament, Romans 1 :26-32, "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: and likewise also, the men, leaving the natural use of the woman5 burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters1 inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding1 covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful; who knowing the judgment of God1 that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Homosexuals also want us to believe that they are a minority group. They claim that they were born that way God did not make them that way. That is a wicked lifestyle they chose. The instructor of the class made a comment about blacks in the 50's and 60's having to sit in the back of the bus, which shows that she also considers them a minority group. No they are not! African Americans were born into their race, Hispanics were born into their race, Orientals were born into their race, and so it is with the other nationalities. These different groups of people did not choose their race, they were born into it. If we go by the thinking of the homosexuals, and the instructor, then in the future if the pedophiles want to consider themselves a minority group, should we give in to them?

Another issue with the homosexual community is the issue of same sex marriages. There is no such thing. In Genesis~1:26-28 we see that God formed man and woman, "And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, end over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it." If God gave instructions for them to multiply, how could Adam have followed his command if there would have been two men formed? How could they have multiplied being married to someone of the same sex? There is no possible way. God created Adam and Eve, and not Adam and Steve. God saw that man needed a mate (wife) and created a woman, not another man, Genesis 2:21-23, "And The LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept, and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof, and the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man, and Adam said, "This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh, she shall be called Woman because she was taken out of Man." Then the Bible clearly states, "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife and they shall be one flesh." In the New Testament Jesus Christ also mentions male and female marriage. Matthew 19:5, "And said, for this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?" The American College Dictionary defines a husband as the man of a married pair (correlative of wife) and wife as a woman joined in marriage to a man as husband. The Apostle Paul also confirms that a marriage consists of one male and one female and also gave instructions for children. Ephesians 6:2, "Honor thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise. He didn't say honor thy father and thy father, or honor thy mother and thy mother. It's plain and simple; a marriage consists of father and mother. I John 5:3 sums it up best, "For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous."

I suggest we not try to be, politically correct and bow down to the homosexual community, just be correct and be on the same side God is on concerning this issue. I am not saying to go out and bash homosexuals, or harass them. No, that is against the law, and anyone caught assaulting or injuring him or her or anyone else should be dealt with according to the law. By the same token lets not have to put up with their agenda, which means having their immoral and wicked ways forced on us.

Reverend Martin Niemoller went to jail for eight years, not for something that was at odds with the Bible. In 1937 in his last sermon in the Third Reich, he made this comment knowing that he would be arrested, 'No more are we ready to keep silent at man's behest when God commands us to speak. For it is, and must remain the case that we must obey God rather than man."

A preacher by the name of Dr. Hugh Pyle said, "Nobody has a right to promote immorality and indecency." I find it interesting that according to 21.06 of the Penal Code which prohibits homosexual conduct, a class is still taught in the police academy condoning that lifestyle. With phrases like "respect their lifestyle" and "myths about homosexual relationships," and "homophobia" are they pushing the homosexual agenda? I cannot believe that TCLEOSE would mandate the teaching of something that is against the law.
