Ex-Gay Activist: Gay Marriage “A Sign Of the Last Days”

Jim Burroway

June 2nd, 2016

Janet Boynes, an ex-gay activist who has long been a favorite among the most extreme anti-gay activists, was been appearing on a radio program this week hosted by Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver. When Staver was dean of Liberty University’s law school, he taught his law students that they should counsel their clients to break the law in favor of “God’s Law.” And according to a RICO lawsuit connecting his law school to the Miller-Jenkins kidnapping case, his law school practices what he teaches.

So, you know, birds of a feather and all that. On Staver’s radio program, Boynes said parents should absolutely not allow their gay kids to bring their significant others home for Christmas or Thanksgiving:

Janet Boynes“That is not a marriage,” she said, “and so we have to not allow ourself to get so confused and realize that the Bible talks about these things are going to happen in the Last Days. We have to have a better understanding that the Bible talks about in the Last Days, these things are going to happen and trust God that he has an answer for everything in his word.”

…Straight siblings, on the other hand, should be more than welcome to come home as a couple “because they are heterosexual [and] they’re doing things right,” but gay relationships are “unacceptable … in the world of God.”

I guess they want people to go back to the good old days when you brought your “roommate” home for the holidays because they had nowhere to go.

You mean like in that film “Make the Yuletide Gay”?

“Strengthen the family” is really just a euphemism for “strengthen the stranglehold of religious fanaticism.” When you allow the removal of even one pillar supporting a house of horrors, the entire structure is weakened, and could collapse.

If they really cared about the quality of families, they would not be pining for ‘the good old days’ when gay men married straight women as a means of survival in a viciously hostile world.

I thought that they wanted the end times, because Jesus would return and they would have pink unicorns coming out of their butts.

One more lie they tell.

I appreciate the idea of taking a stand and drawing a line in the sand somewhere. In our world today, too many of us stand for next to nothing and especially when it comes to Biblical applications. Having said that, as a believer in Jesus, I would allow my gay children and my straight children to bring their significant others home for the holidays with the same rules…separate bedrooms; join in with family celebrations without hesitation and I will embrace getting to know what you see in each of your friends. I have experienced many of these ideas in my three score and ten+ years and anytime we cast people out because of their differences, we may also be giving them a life sentence to eternal destruction. For all the reasons that Jesus would sit with tax collectors and sinners, He modeled for me that I can at least love those who are different and allow the Holy Spirit to touch their lives. My question for Janet is, do you think the people you are touching see Jesus through your life and actions?

What if your gay children and straight children were legally married?

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
