Prideful U.S. Olympic Skier Flaunts Homosexuality in Opposition of Pence, VP Says He’s ‘Proud’ of ‘All’ Athletes

PYEONGCHANG — A U.S. Olympic skier has been pridefully promoting his homosexuality in expressing his opposition to Vice President Mike Pence’s leadership of the 2018 U.S. Olympic delegation to South Korea, in light of reports that Pence supports conversion therapy for homosexuals. Pence has responded to the matter by advising in tweets not to believe what he called “fake news” about his beliefs surrounding conversion therapy, stating to one homosexual Olympian that he is “proud” of him and is “for” him as an athlete, as he is for all Americans competing.

“I feel incredibly honored to be here in Korea competing for the US and I’m so proud to be representing the LGBTQ community alongside this amazing guy! Eat your heart out, Pence. #TeamUSA #TeamUSGay,” freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy posted to Instagram on Friday, sharing a photo of himself with openly homosexual figure skater Adam Rippon.

The day prior, Kenworthy posted several photographs of himself with Rippon to Twitter, including one where he kissed Rippon on the cheek.

“We’re here. We’re queer. Get used to it. @Adaripp #Olympics #OpeningCeremony,” he tweeted.

Rippon also posted a photo of himself with his arm around Kenworthy, writing, “Representing the USA is one of the greatest honors of my life and being able to do it as my authentic self makes it all so much sweeter.”

A number of the other posts on the men’s social media pages prior to the event include sensual images of their bodies, or reference their homosexuality, with Kenworthy posing completely naked for one uncensored backside photograph.

Rippon had told USA Today last month that he was unhappy that Pence was chosen to lead the Olympic delegation and stated that he didn’t want to run into him at the meet-and-greet, due to Pence’s beliefs regarding homosexuality—specifically, claims that Pence supports conversion therapy.

“You mean Mike Pence, the same Mike Pence that funded gay conversion therapy?” he asked.

“If it were before my event, I would absolutely not go out of my way to meet somebody who I felt has gone out of their way to not only show that they aren’t a friend of a gay person, but that they think that they’re sick,” Rippon said. “I wouldn’t go out of my way to meet somebody like that.”

Pence tagged Rippon on Twitter on Wednesday to advise that reports about him supporting conversion therapy are “fake news.” He said he is simply supportive of the men in their Olympic quests.

“@Adaripp I want you to know we are FOR YOU,” he wrote (caps in original.) “Don’t let fake news distract you. I am proud of you and ALL OF OUR GREAT athletes and my only hope for you and all of #TeamUSA is to bring home the gold. Go get ‘em!”

Pence likewise remarked in another post that the reports were “fake news” and that he just wanted to cheer on the Americans competing in the Olympic games and not have “division.”

“One reporter trying to distort 18 yr. old non-story to sow seeds of division. We won’t let that happen! #FAKENEWS,” he wrote. “Our athletes are the best in the world and we are for ALL of them!”

As previously reported, Pence defended the Trump administration last February in its decision to retain an Obama-era order banning groups that contract with the federal government from “discriminating” against homosexuals and transgenders in their business or non-profit organization.

“I think throughout the campaign, President Trump made it clear that discrimination would have no place in our administration,” Pence said during an interview on ABC’s “This Week,” according to a transcript of the discussion. “He was the very first Republican nominee to mention the LGBTQ community at our Republican National Convention and was applauded for it. And I was there applauding with him.”

Pence is known for being at the center of controversy when he signed into law Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act in 2015 as then-governor. The bill was meant to mirror the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which was signed in the 1990’s by then-President Bill Clinton.

However, homosexual activists and advocates soon rose up against Pence, asserting that the bill made provision for Christians and others to discriminate against homosexuals.

While Pence said that the bill had been “grossly misconstrued” by homosexual activists and the media and made to be an issue about homosexuality rather than a response to the Hobby Lobby contraceptive decision, he said that the “mischaracterization” now “might make it necessary … to clarify the law through legislation.”

Therefore, lawmakers proposed a clarification to the bill that banned business owners from declining to fulfill orders for homosexual ceremonies, which Pence promptly signed. His signature disappointed evangelicals, especially since Pence professes to be a Christian.

Proverbs 14:34 states, “Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”

Preacher John MacArthur of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California also stated in a message entitled “When God Abandons a Nation,” “The only hope for this or any other society is to hear the Word of the Lord and obey it… And I would suggest that this is not a good time for weak men preaching weak messages in weak churches. This is a time for bold and powerful, strong biblical ministry that calls people to hear the Word of the Lord and respond. This is the only hope for any people for any individual.”

    Nothing like shaming yourself internationally……..SMH.

    • LynnRH

      Bwahahah! Good one Robin Egg.

      • Enniscorthy

        Why is that funny?

        • LynnRH

          Because that’s exactly what those boys were doing……..shaming themselves internationally. And even more heartbreaking is the fact they are shaming themselves before the Lord God Almighty. But again as I’ve said before……God will have the last Word.

          • Enniscorthy

            Oh, yes, I see. Hilarious.

    • Sharon Diehl

      What makes you think they were ‘shaming’ themselves internationally? Enlightened civilization–not held hostage by religion–accepts homosexuality. Homosexual behavior occurs throughout the animal kingdom.

      • Kevin Canuckster

        “Homosexual behavior occurs throughout the animal kingdom.”
        So does incest and cannibalism, should humans emulate this behavior as well?

        • Sharon Diehl

          Re: “So does incest and cannibalism, should humans emulate this behavior as well?”: Why, honey, look to your bible for your answers. You do on homosexuality.

          Re: “incest”: There’s the the Genesis 19 matter-of-fact tale of Lot’s daughters, who seduced their father and bore sons. Don’t forget Abraham–his wife, Sarah, is his half-sister. Nahor married his niece Milcah. On and on.

          Re: “cannibalism”: Ezekiel 5:7-11: “Because of all your detestable idols, I will do to you what I have never done before and will never do again. Therefore in your midst parents will eat their children, and children will eat their parents.”

          Deuteronomy 28:53-57: “Because of the suffering that your enemy will inflict on you during the siege, you will eat the fruit of the womb, the flesh of the sons and daughters the Lord your God has given you.”

          Lots of nasty weirdness in that bible.

          • Kevin Canuckster

            Are you a 3,000 year old Jew? If not, don’t worry. These are the laws of the Mosaic covenant, Jesus brought in the new covenant 2,000 years ago. You might want to read the book of Hebrews to gain a full understanding of these concepts.
            I trust that you believe that our nature is to be above the animals. I am just pointing out that this is not a good comparison…besides comparing gay people to animals is not very kind.

          • Sharon Diehl

            Sweetie, Homo sapiens sapiens is a member of the animal kingdom. We are all primates–female, male, gay, straight.

            Why should our “nature” be above the animals? We are animals.

          • Kevin Canuckster

            Because we are created in the image of God.

          • Sharon Diehl

            Re: “we are created in the image of God”:
            *Pats On Head*
            “We”, no doubt to you, means a male version of your invisible megalomaniac middle-east deity.

          • Kevin Canuckster

            Because you Sharon, are created in the image of God!

            As is every human including the Olympic athletes mentioned in the article above, myself and every person, from every country in the world. That is why each person has great worth and why we as believers are called to honestly care for them. I do not desire divisiveness, we are called love our neighbors…and that means all people, including you.

          • Sharon Diehl

            Re: “created in the image of God”: So “god” is androgynous, resembling both female and male. Got it.
            Yet, some fundamentalist “Christian” types here are all up in arms over homosexuality.

          • Liya

            May I ask you something
            ? Every right wing nutzoid in those disqus debates assumes I am gay. ( in fact I am a hetero woman, married, no kids) What the heck is wrong with them? Did that happen to you too ? They can’t fanthom that a person can support a cause that doesn’t affect him or her directly??

          • Sharon Diehl

            Oh, yes, every time I defend a woman’s bodily autonomy and right to reproductive health care, and make fun of their fundie bible-impaired notions that homosexuality is a “sin”, I’m “accused” of being a lesbian–as if it should be an insult.
            😉
            Yep, like you, I am heterosexual. I was married for 22 years…and will never subject myself to that again.
            😉
            Anyway, in my capacity as a geologist I’ve worked alongside with lesbians and homosexuals–they’re just geologists like I am–darn good scientists–and society is lucky to have these people working on issues from mapping faults capable of generating great earthquakes, to finding mineral resources, to determining the extent of our aquifers and fresh water supplies.

            I agree. “They” cannot fathom that non-homosexuals would support homosexuals, nor can they understand that there pro-choice people have families, and who may not have abortions themselves, but support a woman’s right to make her own medical decisions.
            In my experience, the fundamentalist rightwing religious brain is incapable of rational thought.

          • Ann Morgan

            **They” cannot fathom that non-homosexuals would support homosexuals, nor can they understand that there pro-choice people have families, and who may not have abortions themselves, but support a woman’s right to make her own medical decisions.

            In my experience, the fundamentalist rightwing religious brain is incapable of rational thought.**

            It’s because they lack what psychiatrists call a ‘theory of mind’ (which most normal people develop by age 7). What that is, is the dual realization that other people besides yourself have thoughts and feelings, and that they may be different from your own thoughts and feelings, often for excellent reasons.

            Since they themselves do not have a theory of mind (and therefore would not support any right they do not have a personal use for themselves), it is not surprising that they would be surprised and puzzled by someone who does.

          • LynnRH

            LOL……so full of bull!

          • Ann Morgan

            Which of course is why you were able to refute what I said, rather than merely saying ‘so full of bull’…. oh, no, wait…

          • LynnRH

            Oh I can refute very well. But i’m not going to give you the satisfaction of arguing with me. I’m done adding fuel to the fire of people who are just so full of bull.

          • Ann Morgan

            Yeah, it’s just amazing how many forced birthers claim to have these brilliiant refutations. Yet none of them ever actually make these brilliant refutations, they always go directly from claiming they have them, to making an excuse not to present the refutation. I’ve seen it hundreds of times, it’s not a new and brilliant tactic.

            Sorry, you lose.

          • LynnRH

            Problem is that people like you just keep on keeping on no matter what is said. If anyone does say anything back to you or those like you all it does is add fuel to the fire. arguing is exactly what you want to do. there is not anything that will shut your mouth. arguing is exactly the reason you and people like you are on this Christian website blog in the first place. well I won’t be giving you the satisfaction of keeping on keeping on with me. you will just have to see if you can find someone else to smear your poop in their face. I can rest assured that God in Heaven will shut your mouth for you the day you see him face to face. And I know you don’t want to be prayed for but you will be whether you want it or not.

          • Sharon Diehl

            Re: “Christian website”: Honey, you appear to be unaware that there are Christians, who are firmly pro-choice. Haven’t you heard of the “Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice”? Catholics For Choice? The Christian Left?

            Because these religious people aren’t murdering clinic workers, or firebombing clinics, or because they support a woman’s bodily autonomy, you have the silly notion that these people are not “Christians”?

            Re: “I can rest assured that God in Heaven will shut your mouth”: So you think you speak for the will of an invisible middle-east megalomaniac deity, who slaughtered every pregnant woman and “innocent child” in the myth of Noah’s Flood? Snort. In the words of Susan B. Anthony:

            “I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.” — Susan B. Anthony

          • Ma’m where do you get all the research and quotes when you are dealing with Pro Lifers? I must know where you find all these amazing resources.

          • Sharon Diehl

            Hmmm…I suspect sarcasm with that elevating “pro-louts” to capital letters.

            However, google medical organizations–they have their statements on abortion posted on their websites. For example, go to the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and you can click on a statement from their president:

            “Haywood L. Brown, M.D., president of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), released the following statement in response to the United States Senate’s expected vote on S. 2311.

            “The United States Senate should abandon S. 2311 and all legislation that limits women’s access to comprehensive health care, including abortion care. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) opposes every type of political interference in the practice of medicine, including legislation that bans abortion at an arbitrary cutoff point.”

          • Miss, first off I am unapologetically Pro-Choice. I did not mean any offense with my mistaken capitalization. These resources are awesome, but I was wondering if you had more scientific resources that refuted the pro-life mantra that a fetus is a human organism which begins at conception/fertilization.

            Thank you for your assistance with this matter.

          • Sharon Diehl

            You’re a bot.

          • Actually not a bot…. just trying to get more information to help when I debate with anti-choicers. What would you like me to do within reason to show I am not a bot?

          • Liya

            Greatly appreciate your explanation. Glad to learn I am not the only one they reply to in that manner, they are just following the script .

            You are probably also hated hust for being a scientist. Science is evil, after all. 😉 despite them routinely using the advancements of science and medicine.

          • Sharon Diehl

            Yes. 😉
            I usually get disbelief that I have a doctorate in geochemistry/geology and a master’s background in biological studies, even though I’m easy enough to google. I’ve been told that I cannot be that smart if I support abortion, homosexuality, and everything else “they” abhor. Big Roll of the Eyes.
            Then there are the young-earth creationists, who, indeed, tell me I’m going to hell because I “believe” in “evilution”. I tell these ignoramuses that it is a matter of understanding evolutionary biology, not “believing” in it.
            So many people in this country have so many irrational “beliefs”. Sigh.

          • Ann Morgan

            Sharon, question for you since you have a strong background in geology. A local jeweler (who I suspect must have a lot of money tied up in mined diamonds) has recently been putting commercials on the radio claiming that lab (plasma chamber) created diamonds are ‘fake’.

            Is that a statement they can legally make? Lab created diamonds are still actual diamonds, they are not glass, zircons, or moissanite.

          • Sharon Diehl

            Hmmm….this is out of my geochemistry area of expertise; I’m not a gemologist. This article states that lab-generated diamonds are often inscribed by the company that makes them, so buyers know these are not “natural” diamonds. But you are right–the lab-grown diamonds are constructed of layers of carbon atoms, so they’re chemically the same–however, a lab-grown diamond doesn’t contain the common impurities or fluid inclusions that a natural diamond has that is found in a volcanic vent..

          • Liya

            you have impressive credentials! Now i am rethinking my words – when i told one of those geniuses that he has the head of stone – from the geologist standpoint there are some stones that might find that comparison offensive! I remember seeing a few rock formations during my college hiking days that looked pretty sophisticated and beautiful.

          • Sharon Diehl

            I totally agree with you. 😉

            Lol…

          • Sharon Diehl

            I wanted to mention, too, that the religious fanatics, who protest in front of clinics where abortions are performed, weirdly yell at the escorts that they are “lesbians” and have a “lesbian agenda”.

          • Neal Bracken

            Sharon Diehl. Keep up the spirit! You might want to mention these religious fanatics weirdly yell at men who enter abortion clinics.

          • Sharon Diehl

            Yes, I’ve seen some of that yelling: “take your woman out of there!”, “be a man!”…as if a male has control over the physical body of a woman.

          • Ann Morgan

            So, what they are saying then, is that a ‘man’ will sacrifice every hope and dream of his thinking, feeling children, for the sake of mindless cells. Notice how the siblings always get erased, and if you bring them up, the forced birthers start frothing at the mouth 100 times worse than they do at any other subject. No matter how they wheel and spin, they just can’t get that last little element into place that would give them the perfect, guilt free, fetal fantasy, and explain how the siblings are ‘responsible’.

          Incest is a bad idea for genetic reasons.
          Cannibalism qua cannibalism is not inherently immoral, but is highly offensive to most people.
          However, your premise is that if animals engage in a behavior, this is somehow proof it is wrong. And proof that other behaviors that animals engage in is ALSO wrong.
          Good. Animals eat and breath.
          Stop eating and breathing. See how far you get with that.
          Either that, or prove that homosexuality is wrong on it’s own merits, not because incest is bad genetically and cannibalism is offensive to most people.

          • Kevin Canuckster

            Please re-read the conversation, the premise is that we should be better than the animals, not look to their behaviors as our example. Blessings.

          • Ann Morgan

            Please re-read what I wrote. You need to prove that homosexuality is something inherently ‘bad’ that we need to be ‘better than’. The fact that animals engage in incest, which is bad, is not proof that homosexuality is ‘bad’, any more than it is proof that eating and breathing are ‘bad’.

        BS on the animal kingdom thing. Queer animals are ignored or killed as they do not help in the procreating of the species and/or the pack. That is natures way.

        • Sharon Diehl

          Sweetie, it’s your widdle ole bible-humping self that is full of BS. No, dear, “Queer animals” are not ignored or killed in the wild. “Queer animals” form many long successful pairs in nature–from penguins to African lions. Same sex couples, especially within bird populations, even raise young together. You must not read National Geographic or other nature sites and magazines.

    Another idiot thinking that if he obnoxiously barks loud enough it suddenly becomes the truth. The “queer” can do whatever they want…give ’em all the rope…but God’s people will absolutely not “get used to it”.

      Homosexuality is global; all cultures experience homosexuality; all races exhibit homosexuality. Homosexual behavior is common throughout the animal kingdom. Homosexuality is not an abomination, nor a sin–it is natural.

      Conservative Christians find truth about nature only from their scripture and teachings. Those of us whose world view is based on nature, experience and science will only be able to agree with your understanding in those cases where our worldviews happen to be in agreement.

      When they disagree you are incapable of an open logical discussion because to do so would destroy your faith

  • Michael C

    Someone please tell Mike Pence that the term “fake news” generally refers to news that is fake.

    If someone accuses Mike Pence of wanting to fund gay conversion therapy, it’s because he said this;

    “Resources should be directed toward those institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior.”

    It’s not “fake news” when someone calls you out for things you actually said.

    • apmsegal

      Pence is a liar.

      • LynnRH

        Satan and his angels are the liars. And anyone that is against God and His Son Jesus Christ the Savior is following Satan. Anyone who sees what God has put in the Holy Bible for us to know and continues to ignore certain parts that they just aren’t ready to believe is God’s Truth is still following Satan because when you accept God’s Holy Word as Truth you are allowing GOD TO BE YOUR GOD instead of YOU BEING YOUR OWN GOD!

    Good for these athletes. It is very important to stand up against people who hate you because you are different from them and who work tirelessly against you.

    • LynnRH

      Who said anything about HATE? Just because a true Christian stands firmly with the Word of God and says sexual sin (including homosexuality) is a sin (BECAUSE God says so) doesn’t mean a person is hated. God says love the sinner BUT hate the sin. You can like it or lump it………that’s just the way it is.

        Pence is someone who hates LGBT. He might hate the sin (not sure what that even means…I mean how is a gay person sinning by just being gay?!) but his actions show he hates the people too.

        Would you expect a jewish athlete to not stand up to a nazi politician?

        • LynnRH

          God said sexual sin (including homosexuality) is a sin. If you are an unbeliever then that explains why you said “not sure what that even means” but that still does not mean it is not a sin. BECAUSE God says so. That’s how a gay person is sinning just by being gay. And just what is it that Pence is doing that shows he HATES them? Standing on God’s Word as Truth? Well soooooo sorry! But no matter what unbeliever’s want to say or do they will NOT cause a true Christian to become a non-Christian and be okay with certain groups of people in this God-forsaken world who want to SMEAR their agenda’s in our faces. Face it…….God will have the last say-so whether you like it or not. I pray that you get our eyes open BEFORE it’s too late for you.

          • Truth73

            “an unbeliever” Oh my, far from it!! Just live closer to Christ’s way than most.

            I also know how to read the Bible (in Hebrew and Ancient Greek) so I know God did not “say” what you claim.

            God bless you. I will pray a little extra from LynnRH tonight!

          God hates the Sin AND the Sinner ……….. they are not separable ………..

          • Truth73

            I am not sure a) how you know what God hates and b) where you would get the information that Gods hates anyone. It is certain not part of Christian teaching.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “I am not sure a) how you know what God hates”

            because it is in SCRIPTURE …….. 14 times in the first 50 Psalms ALONE we see Gods hatred for the sinner, His wrath on the liar and more ……………..

            Proverbs 6:16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
            6:17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
            6:18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
            6:19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

            “and b) where you would get the information that Gods hates anyone. It is certain not part of Christian teaching.”

            SCRIPTURE details it ….. and if you do not know this …… then you do not know the God, i guess, you think you serve …………..

            Psalm 97
            10 Let those who love the LORD hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.

            Psalm 119
            163 I hate and detest falsehood but I love your law.

            Romans 12
            9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.

            Romans
            9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
            9:14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.

            Proverbs 8:13 To fear the LORD is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech.

            God even hates the saying “hate the sin, love the sinner” …..

            Malachi
            2:17 Ye have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?

          • LynnRH

            We know what God hates by READING the Bible and accepting God’s stance on it. Not ignoring the parts we don’t like. God is God and we are NOT. What He says goes.

            John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.

            This says He loves the world; that would be EVERYONE. And we are ALL sinners; sexual sin just happens to be one of those sins. Jesus died for ALL of us sinners so that we many have life eternally with Him in Heaven. BUT Heaven will NOT have sin in it………that’s why Jesus’s blood HAS TO cover us. And it will only cover us when we have accepted Jesus as Savior AND Lord of our lives (that means we look to Him as to how to live our lives) and we have to repent and turn away from the sins God says (BECAUSE He is God and we are not) is sin.

          • Truth73

            Since you do not ignore the parts you don’t like, I take it you are using a public computer (you should not have money to waste on meaningless things) and regularly clothe the naked and feed the hungry. (Where do you have time for reading a blog?!) You also keep yourself away from men when you bleed.

            So, you’re basically saying you’re right in line with those lovely Westboro people? You know, the ones with the infamous signs about who God hates?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            God decides who gets saved and who does not …… we are not privy to who when and where they get saved or if they will ever be saved …… murderers are saved and murderers are not saved (David Berkowitz was saved) …. God decides …… homosexuals get saved and not saved (videos too numerous to name here shows they are saved) …… and again God decides ………… thieves get saved and not saved …… and again God decides ………… liars get saved and not saved …… and again God decides ………… in fact EVERY PERSON is condemned to hell as a sinner, every person ever born …… unless and until GOD decides different ….. and it is His choice to save or not save ………..

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Hmm. I’ve always heard and read Christians saying “you can be saved, everyone can be saved”, etc, etc. Guess you’re not going along with that, I suppose. So then why does God choose one sinner and not another, exactly?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “you can be saved, everyone can be saved” ……. and it is wrong …. God is not here to save everyone …… now we do not know if this person or that person will be saved …… so the gospel is preached to all …… and those who hear and are convicted will be saved …. “So then why does God choose one sinner and not another, exactly?” …… because it is His privilege to do so ….. and He does not make us privy to all of His will in that regard ….. we have a blanket mandate …… to preach the gospel to every living soul …… and God does the rest …… it is Gods word and it does not return void …… it either repels or it attracts …… and that is His will for it …..

          • Tim Matter

            TheKingOfRhye- You might be interested in reading about what Calvinism is vs what Arminianism is. It might clear some things up (slightly). I never heard of either when I was a Christian. It turns out I was an Arminian.

      • james blue

        I accept Christ as my savior. I believe in freedom of religion. I get accused often by certain posters on this and similar sites (I think they’ve organised) of “hating God, Christianity and Christians” because I believe freedom of religion doesn’t mean forcing others to live by my faith or forcing others to accommodate my faith and I don’t think freedom of religion only applies to Christians.
        I don’t even have to be commenting on religious matters to be accused so.

        • LynnRH

          I happen to be a true borne-again Christian . And I believe in freedom of religion. I’m not trying to MAKE anyone live by my faith. I came to this Christian website blog because I can relate to Christian topics. Didn’t realize it was going to be full of those who just want to be here to make Christians feel ignorant because we believe what God says is the Truth. If they don’t like what we stand for why don’t they go to a non-Christian website. They’re NOT going to change our minds. Our minds are with God Almighty who says sexual sin (which includes homosexuality) is a sin. And we will NOT be okay with it being smeared in ours and our childrens faces as being normal.

          • james blue

            Wasn’t accusing you.

            However in response

            Do you think an employer should have to make accommodations for your faith?

            For example if you worked as a photographer for a wedding photography company and they took on a contract for a gay wedding and you are assigned to it. Should your employer have to by law accommodate your objections to doing the event because of your religious beliefs and give the assignment to someone else? (I’m using the general “you” not specifically you in person. I’m NOT saying one way or the other that you would refuse the assignment)

          • John O

            what don’t u get? the government determines what the employer does, and the special interest groups have taken over the government.

          • james blue

            I wasn’t asking what the law “is” I was asking what she thinks it “should be”. LynnRH said she believes in freedom of religion and she is quote- “not trying to MAKE anyone live by my faith”

            So I asked if employers should be forced by law to make accommodations for our faith.

            I disagree with those laws, what don’t you get about that?

    Adults continue to turn away from homosexuality and transgenderism, exposing the lie that it’s genetic. Their personal testimonies backs up the fact that it’s brought about by indoctrination, confusion, mental instability and/or abuse. Search on ex-gay to hear their own testimonies and the count is getting higher.

    The LGBT activists hate LGBT as proven by them not want the ones that want help to get help.
    The LGBT activists love islam even though throughout the world LGBT are slaughtered at their hands, and even in Orlando 50 were slaughtered yet these activists prove they hate LGBT by rushing to defend islam as a “religion of peace” while wishing evil on Christians for even wanting to help LGBT who want said help.

    Bottom line: LGBT activists (including those in forums) are really pro-islam activists using LGBT to eradicate Christianity and demonize Christians. And you know what they’d then do to LGBT once Christianity is (so they think) eradicated, just like they do in every other country where islam takes over: LGBT slaughter ensues.

      It’s certainly not my intention to demonize anyone, and that’s because I know what it’s like.

    I’m glad we’ve reached a point where these two men can be honest about themselves, and in the process, teach younger, aspiring athletes that being gay doesn’t mean you can’t aspire to a dream, and put your heart and soul into reaching fulfilling that dream. When I look at these two men, all I see is youthful confidence and energy. If anyone finds particular photographs objectionable for some reason, don’t look at them.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            Operation Paperclip was a secret program of the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JIOA) in which more than 1,600 German scientists, engineers, and technicians, such as Wernher von Braun and his V-2 rocket team, were recruited in post-Nazi Germany and taken to the U.S. for government employment, primarily between 1945 and 1959; many were former members and some were former leaders of the Nazi Party.[1][2]

            The primary purpose for Operation Paperclip was U.S. military advantage in the Russo–American Cold War, and the Space Race. The Soviet Union were more aggressive in forcibly recruiting (at gunpoint) some 2,000 German scientists with Operation Osoaviakhim during one night.[citation needed]

            The Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) established the first secret recruitment program, called Operation Overcast, on July 20, 1945, initially “to assist in shortening the Japanese war and to aid our postwar military research”.[3] The term “Overcast” was the name first given by the German scientists’ family members for the housing camp where they were held in Bavaria.[4] In late summer 1945, the JCS established the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JIOA), a subcommittee of the Joint Intelligence Community, to directly oversee Operation Overcast and later Operation Paperclip.[5]

            The JIOA had one representative of each member agency of the Joint Intelligence Committee: the army’s director of intelligence, the chief of naval intelligence, the assistant chief of Air Staff-2 (air force intelligence), and a representative from the State Department.[6] In November 1945, Operation Overcast was renamed Operation Paperclip by Ordnance Corps (United States Army) officers, who would attach a paperclip to the folders of those rocket experts whom they wished to employ in America.[4] In a secret directive circulated on September 3, 1946, President Truman officially approved Operation Paperclip and expanded it to include one thousand German scientists under “temporary, limited military custody”.[7][8][9]

      All of these things take time. It can’t happen over night.

He is working on and getting some things accomplished but good grief he’s only been in office a year. Please don’t be a Democrap and not EVEN give him a chance! What we need to do instead of complain is pray for our President and his team. God loves for us to talk to Him about our concerns. Let’s give our President strength (through the Lord) with fervent, and continual prayer.

      And by the way…..we don’t want to ban those people. We want to love and pray for them. We want to give them God’s Word and His Good News of Jesus Christ the Savior. Of course, as you’ve probably noticed they like to fight against it cause they LIKE their sins and are not wanting to turn away from it. So instead they’re here to attempt to “beat” the true Christians down. What they don’t know is that God triumphs over Satan any old day. And God will SHUT THEIR MOUTHS when He is good and ready. Could be a stroke, death, (hopefully repentance), or when they see Him face to face; but He WILL shut their mouths. God will have the last word!

            I’ve “sinned” tremendously.

            Leviticus 11:28–29: “These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind, and the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole.”

            I’ve eaten delicious snail tapas in Majorca and will do it again. Haven’t tried turtle soup, though

            Leviticus 19:19: “You are to keep My statutes. You shall not breed together two kinds of your cattle; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together.”

            I don’t think ‘god’ anticipated “beefalos”.

            My “field” has the cucumbers tucked in with the tomatoes; squash with the spinach; basil with the broccoli. Not to mention that I wear cotton and polyester blends every single day. Such a sinner!

            Leviticus 10–11: “And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcasses in abomination.”

            Love my lobster, shrimp, and crayfish. I’m doomed!

            Exodus 31:14–15: “Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.”

          • LynnRH

            That’s right. And those that think that time will never get here have a RUDE awakening coming. It won’t be a rude awakening though for those of us that are saved. It will be a GLORIOUS day for us! Yes I know it’s been over 2000 years. But God’s timing is not like ours. God is patient with sinners. At the same time, God’s longsuffering can come to an end, as seen in the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 18-19). and the sending of Israel into captivity (1 Kings 17:1-23; 2 Kings 24:17-25). The day will definitely come.

      • Elca

        Yes these things take time. We did not get here over night and during Obama’s time as President.
        It was a slow gradual slide on the slipper slope and the passage of Roe v wade under a Republican President didn’t help but set in motion what we have today.
        But, even before Roe v Wade, women were having abortions and being Lesbians and men were gays.
        Even if Pence and Trump reverse Roe v Wade and close all Loop holes, it will not stop a woman from having an abortion or men from being gay.
        These are personal choice and issues of the heart, that a corrupt Church has failed to address in a Biblical and Christ Centered Manner. The Church is still looking to Politics and Politicians to solve the issue of the Heart instead of standing on the Word of God and the Full Gospel that will convict and convince people of their sins. You cannot legislate against Sin.
        Punishing those who are caught, does not mean people aren’t engaging in SIN. It simple means they have not been caught.

    • TheKingOfRhye

      Short answer: Trump’s not really as anti-LGBT as some of his fans want him to be; Pence is more so, but he’s only the VP after all. And, it’s not like they could wave a magic wand and reverse Roe v. Wade and reinstate DADT, etc, etc, just like that, anyway.

      You said “ban these people”…..ban them from what, competing in the Olympics? (since that IS what the story is about….) If you mean ban them from military service, like I was suggesting, it probably ain’t gonna be that easy.

      • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        I don’t think Pence is anti-gay either.

        • TheKingOfRhye

          I think you misunderstood me. I was saying he IS.

          • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            You’re saying he is anti-gay. I’m saying he really isn’t. Correct? I used the term “either” to refer to the fact that Trump isn’t anti-gay either.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            OK, I guess I didn’t understand exactly you were saying there. At the very least, it’s just a fact that Pence is more against LGBT rights than Trump. Just look at his record.

          • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            His record is that he speaks a big talk and then does the opposite. He’s raised very liberal children and has said he’s idolized some very liberal people. He was a liberal, in fact, until later in life. Sometimes I think politicians say what they think will get them votes in a particular district. I agree with you about Trump though. Trump is very pro LGBT.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Trump is “very” pro-LGBT? For a Republican, maybe, but I don’t think that’s saying much.

            For one thing, I don’t see how anyone could say that about the President who reinstated the ban on trans people serving in the military.

          • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Trump’s generals wanted that ban, and there’s good reason for it, some of which were financial. The military is there to protect a nation, not for a socio-economic experiment.

          • LynnRH

            Anti-gay means against gays. But If a person who is a true Christian trying to stand with God’s Holy Word DARES to say that homosexuality is a sin (along with all other sexual sin) they are called anti-gay. LOL

            People can be against the sin of homosexuality without being against the person as a human being. That is treating a human being with respect (even tho you disagree with their behavior).

            Sexual sin is as much a forgivable sin as any other sin. The only sin that is not forgivable is the rejection of Jesus Christ the Savior.

          • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            I know what anti-gay is. I don’t believe Pence really holds the views he says he does. Look at his children. Look at who he has said he admires. They are all liberal.

          • LynnRH

            I believe he just wants to be a gentleman and respect other people’s views and opinions as their right. I think he just tries to behave the way he thinks our God would have him to. That’s being a true Christian.

          • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            I respectfully disagree. The way he’s raised his children and who his admitted idols are don’t jive with the Word of God.

          • LynnRH

            how did he raise his children? and who are his admitted idols?

          • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            He sent his daughter to study in Muslim schools. He and his wife attended mosque. His wife wore the hijab. His idol is womanizer and ultra lib JFK.

          • LynnRH

            how do you know these are true?

          • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            It’s public record. The photos of he and his wife at the mosques are readily available online, too. You can find them via a simple search.

          • LynnRH

            Well if the things you said are really true all I can say is that i’m guilty of many sins in my past too. And some of them are REALLY ugly! But I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior and have had all of those sins washed away now. Now I live my life in a way that I truly hope to honor Him.

          • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            He’s doing these things now.

          • LynnRH

            So I googled Pence and wife at a mosque. What I read was an article that was just explaining how he and is wife and two daughters were visiting in Indonesia as an outreach to the Muslims. Not as in converting from his own Christianity. And his wife and daughters wore scarves around their heads as a respect to their (muslims) customs; they weren’t worshiping Allah. That’s the way we Christians are suppose to treat people of other religions as well as people with no religion at all. They are lost just like we Christians were lost before we were saved. We aren’t suppose to alienate them with hate and disgust. We know they are wrong in what they believe but we are suppose to show them Jesus through our behavior and, of course, the Word. So again I feel Pence was just acting as a gentleman and trying to win hearts, minds, and souls for Jesus through his behavior of kindness and respect.

          • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Christians are not supposed to be going into pagan temples to worship other gods. allah is not Jehovah. allah is a fake pagan moon god.

            Pence and his wife are catholic. They are not born again Christians.

          • LynnRH

            I know Christians are not suppose to be going into pagan temples to worship other gods. From what I read they were taking a tour around the mosque with their muslim hosts. they were there in Indonesia trying to extend a friendly hand to the muslims over there. Trying to befriend someone that is of another religion or of no religion at all doesn’t mean you are converting yourself over to another religion. It means you are trying to get along with others that think differently than you do. And I definitely know that allah is NOT Jehovah. and that allah is a fake god. Pence and his family know that too. Jesus visited with and spoke with people of other religions and befriended them in order to help them see the Truth. Haven’t you ever heard that you will catch more bees with honey? LOL. And as far as Pence and his wife being catholic…….maybe they aren’t saved (I don’t know) only God knows that for sure. But even if they aren’t they certainly have more Christian moral values than the majority of our society today. Sure beats the heck out of the liberals moral values.

          • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            If Pence knows that allah is a fake god, why did he send his daughter to Muslim schools to be educated? There’s no way that entering a pagan temple (they did go inside the mosque) or adopting Muslim discriminatory dress will help to convert Muslims. It only emboldens them. As far as your last few statements go, a non-Christian cannot have Christian values. Only the Holy Spirit imparts those to us. Mike Pence is a fake.

          • LynnRH

            Well I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree. Because my feeling is that he was just trying to be respectful of a group of people who worship a different god. He was not there to worship allah. I’m sure they didn’t hear him say he was there to be converted to muslim so I don’t know how the fact that they were there is going to embolden the muslims. Women in the Bible covered their heads but is wasn’t because they were worshipping allah. Even Christian woman covered their heads. Pences’ wife and daughters were doing that as a respectful behavior NOT because they were worshipping allah. Why would they want to turn away from their own religion? And I haven’t read anything about his daughter going to muslim schools to be educated. But if that is true couldn’t it be maybe because they wanted to know more about the muslim religion in order to be able to find ways to get along with them better.

            And as far as a non-Christian cannot have Christian values…….maybe I mis-spoke and should have said Pence has good moral values that are very much like Christian moral values. He definitely does not sound like many of the liberals today.

          • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Paul did not go into the temple of Diana to witness to anyone. He stayed out of the temple to witness to them.

            One cannot have Christian values without the Holy Spirit.

          • LynnRH

            Oooops! I replied to myself accidentally. LOL. I’ll try to do it right this time.

            Well that’s good for Paul. But Pence is a different person and he chose to tour the host’s worship center not because he was interested in changing his religion but to be respectful to the feelings of his muslim hosts/friends. God knows his heart and knows he only has a heart for Him. God knows Pence is extending a friendly hand to those that are lost.

          • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Christianity doesn’t differ from one person to the other. The Bible tells us that Christians should be of one mind. No Christian would walk into a mosque and walk around it as though there is nothing wrong with it.

          • LynnRH

            Actually, the only unforgivable sin is blaspheme against the Holy Spirt.

            Mark 3:28-30: “Truly I tell you, all sins and blasphemes will be forgiven for the sons of men. But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven, but is guilty of an eternal sin.

      Re: “what went wrong?”: There is no stripping pregnant women of their civil rights and liberties–the same ones that male citizens are entitled to–which include bodily autonomy, medical privacy, and the right to make one’s own medical decisions. But the Religious Right are certainly doing their best to make pregnant women third class citizens behind a man and an embryo.

      • John O

        u obviously have no idea what the courts are doing. 6 week old fetus has been declared human and a guy got 14 years for murder. equal rights and equal laws went out the window. for your own sake, please wake up and don’t get caught in the crossfire. the guys dad was a dr and spent 500000. trying to keep his son out of prison.

        • Sharon Diehl

          Sweetie, in regards to the “murder” of a pregnant woman and her fetus, individual states, who have managed to pass fetal personhood laws, have had awkward caveats that do not include abortion, which is federally protected. It is up to the discretion of an individual prosecutor to bring double homicide charges in the cases of murdered pregnant women.

          Fetal personhood laws are a direct attack on Roe v Wade, but they have failed to overturn federal law to protect women’s rights to medical privacy.

  • LynnRH

    You know……it has dawned on me today that I have allowed myself to buy into exactly what those people on this website ( that hate what true Christians stand for) is trying to do. That is to keep a big stink going on so that it can cause more animosity between believers and non-believers. And there I was…….suckered into it! Well no more. From now on I will keep my focus on sharing God’s Word and not allow myself to feel I need to “defend” God’s Word. My job is strictly to obey Him and spread the Good News to other’s. And then leave it at that. God doesn’t need my defending of Him; he’s plenty big enough to do that Himself. When I make a comment or express my opinion and someone else want to make their big stink out of it they will just have to argue with themselves. I won’t give them the satisfaction of trying to make me feel i’m wrong to stand with God. I choose to forgive your hatefulness and will continue to pray for each of you whether you like it or not.

    Every right to be proud of being gay and making comments about supporting their cause. At the point of trying to shame the VP of the US on foreign soil, they disgust me. And probably to their surprise and showing more class, Pence made a statement that he supports all US athletes. Makes me wonder how many athletes are really there to represent their country or are their to advance their own agenda, career, or endorsements. Or all of the above.

    • Mr. Stache

      It is a bit odd (and disgusting) that gays in America are more proud of who they are than the many Americans who call themselves “Christians.” No wonder the left is winning the culture war. Too many half-hearted mealy-mouthed churchgoers have caved in to the culture.

          I stopped watching the day of the article about Reppon and his boyfriend flaunting their shameful selves at Pence. Just like I stopped watching football due to the nit-wits who refuse to honor the flag (because it’s all about them you know). Ugh! Disgusting!

        • LynnRH

          Amos what do you mean when you say Ratings Continue to Collapse? Do you mean the ratings of viewers of the Olympics? Who was the Network that hired the Olympian who attacked Pence? what did they hire him for? I guess I didn’t know about these things because I boycotted them like the first couple of days after the Olympics began because of such disrespect of those two gays towards our vice-president Pence.

          And when you said “and guess why they refused to watch (think NFL)” were you meaning the disrespect of the flag and those that died for our freedoms? If so, I so totally agree with that. I am soooo disgusted with the way our society behaves today. I was just wondering if I was understanding your messages correctly. 🙂

    Homo’s trying to subvert the olympics by promoting their own fascist viewpoints… they’re a bunch of immoral narcissists who believe it’s all about them… actually, it’s not, it’s about all athletes, including heterosexual…

  • Had the constitutional framers (like their 17th-century Christian Colonial predecessors) established government and society upon Yahweh’s unchanging moral law (including Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13) and not replaced Biblical responsibilities for Enlightenment rights, there would be no homosexual agenda in America because no sodomite (such as Adam Rippon) would dare risk exposing themselves to petition government for their “rights” or condemn Christians for their righteous stand against this perversion.

    Invariably, there will be some Christians who will object to my referencing God’s designation of sodomy as a capital crime in Leviticus 20:13. Why? Because they favor homosexuals who would sodomize your sons and daughters to the deterrent effect of Yahweh’s altogether righteous judgments, per Psalm 19:7-11.

    Better, of course, that such repent and become Christians (as in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11). However, for those not ever to be a part of the remnant (per Matthew 7:13-14) and for the protection of our posterity, homosexuality remains a capital crime, per Romans 3:31, Romans 1:21-32, 1 Timothy 1:8-11, etc.

    It is so sad….truly sad that so many can buy into satan’s lies. Yes, they flaunt, protest, parade, scream, yell, rant and rave.

      Exactly right. And another thing that is so sad is the fact that those of us true Christians that are out trying to do as God says…….spread the Good News, just get laughed at and ridiculed by them. It’s tough to stand firm with God and at the same time get beaten down by those haters (who claim it’s us that are the haters). But we just have to get back up, dust our knees off, remember who we are (Children of God) and focus on His strength to continue on fighting the good fight.
