I read article after article about the push by the LGBTQ in their quest for what? To force others to believe their situation is normal, customary, or usual?

According to the Bible, we are born a man or a woman — anything else is a personal choice. Some folks say they’re born that way, but it’s not so. Although we love them and treat them as friends, family, or co-workers; as Christians, we are not to follow that path and sin against God by accepting their ways.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10, "Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”

The trouble begins when the LGBTQ movement tries to shut down our point of view or our belief system. Recently, Franklin Graham — son of Evangelist Billy Graham — had a tour set up in the U.K., but it was quickly attacked by the LGBTQ and the venues denied him even though he’d already paid money to speak.

There’s an attack on our religious freedoms by this and other groups who feel they can have their rights but can shut down ours. Rev. Graham is fighting it; however, it’s a sad day in our culture to watch the destruction of moral values.

The United Methodist Church is fighting for its existence as a Bible-based denomination. The LGBTQ is trying to turn it toward the sinful ways of their movement. But, as the song is worded, “I shall not be moved.” My faith is in God, and we’ve a constitutional right to practice our religion without fear of being attacked.
