Excerpts from:
The Homosexual Revolution


The Homosexual Issue
"the ordination of an avowed lesbian as a Deacon in the Church
is a sign of a healthy change" Right Rev. Paul Moore, Jr.

Many Christians were awakened out of their moral slumber when in March, 1975, in Boulder, Colorado, two homosexuals were granted a marriage license. The two men, both 27, were denied a license in El Paso County, but found the "moral" and legal climate more acceptable in Boulder.

Both had been married in a religious ceremony October 28,1973 at the Faith Metropolitan Community Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Since that time, until the present, the homosexual issue has continued to occupy more and more print. One can hardly read a paper or a magazine without running headlong into the issue. [see Antipas News Section: World 2000, for more headline news articles on gay articles]

The Church is deeply involved. Government is involved. Schools are involved. Private and public organizations are involved. In short, each one of us is involved whether we realize it or not. Homosexuality, for all intents and purposes, is fast becoming America's number one social issue with anywhere from two to 20 million homosexuals involved. And, as is true with all social issues, it has great religious and political implications .

To grasp just a portion of the present homosexual issue, observe the following items taken from the public media (New York Times, Time, Associated Press, Los Angeles Times, United Press Int.) and involving the major social structures of the nation:


"The Federal Communications Commission is being asked to extend the broadcast fairness doctrine to let homosexuals appear on television to counter criticisms of their life styles...the petition was submitted by the Council on Religion and the Homosexual, Inc.." June 17,1977.

"A committee appointed by the Catholic Theological Society of America is offering Catholics a new sexual morality in a book to be published next month. It is a morality with no yes and no answers. Homosexual behavior is not to be condemned where it fosters personality growth." May 28,1977.

"The Anglican Church's attitude toward homosexuality may have to be altered in the light of 20th century knowledge, according to Bishop John Yates of Gloucester. Dr. Norman Pittenger, a theologian who admitted his own homosexual bias claimed that Christian tradition was mistaken. He said a right understanding of love was essential." May 9,1977.

"The United Church of Christ called for civil rights for homosexuals, labeling Anita Bryant's anti-gay crusade 'a new reactionary movement' threatening the civil liberties of all Americans. The denomination's delegates said they deplore the use of Scripture to generate hatred and the violation of civil rights of gay and bisexual persons."

"A homosexual ring operating from a Boy Scout troop may have victimized hundreds of boys and traded them like cards to other men." Sept. 12, 1976.

"Gay community leaders complained to day about the arrest of 40 persons in what police called a sado-masochistic slave market. Captain Jack Wilson said the building in which the auction took place was equipped with dungeons and cell blocks. In the dungeons were all forms of chains and articles of restraint. Mark IV club was maintained by a group calling itself 'the Leather Fraternity' as a private club for homosexuals and sado-masochism cultists." April 14,1976.

"In all, I guess there were between 25 and 30 boys killed, and they were buried in three different places ... Henley told police that Corll had turned on him and two other youths, threatening to sexually molest and kill them. Henley said he had managed to kill Corll in self defense. He then recounted to Houston police an incredible tale of horror, homosexual sadism and mass murder." August 20,1973.

"They call themselves 'chicken hawks' and they openly advertise in magazines for 'chickens.' The 'hawks' are grown men ... homosexuals. The 'chickens' are boys, ages 10 to 14. The 'hawks' want the 'chickens' for sex. The 'hawks' take pictures of themselves with the 'chickens' and pass them around. It is a disgusting business." March 30,1977.

"Five hundred guests rocked the hall with applause, cheers and congratulations when Pat Montclaire married Terry Block at Glide Memorial United Methodist Church (San Francisco).

I believe there can be loving experience, even in a one-night stand." January 31,1975.

"Jesuit priest, John J. McNeill, suggests that God had a divine purpose in so creating human nature that a certain percentage of human beings are homosexual.

"Homosexual attacks on children are sharply increasing, unleashing a whirlwind of tragedy that sometimes ends in the murder of the young victims, police warn.

"For years, major movie companies have offered special screening to groups that might talk up their new film -- black leaders, collegiate editors, even taxi drivers.

May 13,1975.


"A recent change of the Dallas Motion Picture Classification Board has raised a few eyebrows. The change allows for the letter "p" (signifying perversion) to be included among the board's exceptions.

And so it goes ... on and on. Pages seemingly out of the ancient past being performed in the present. The names change, but the activity remains the same. It is spelled Sodom and Gomorrah!
