Jesse Lee Peterson: OSCARS SO GAY! LESSONS FROM KEVIN HART

Exclusive: Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson blasts radical LGBTQ activists who hijacked Academy Awards

by Jesse Lee Peterson

Comedian Kevin Hart announced on Twitter that he was stepping down from hosting this year’s Oscars ceremony after the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences asked him to apologize for “homophobic” tweets he sent eight years ago.

Hart initially refused, but later caved to pressure. “I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year’s Oscar’s,” Hart tweeted. “This is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.”

Some quick background: After it was announced that Hart would host the 91st Oscars ceremony on Feb. 24, internet trolls began scouring his Twitter account and found these tweets:

“Yo if my son comes home & try’s 2 play with my daughters doll house I’m going 2 break it over his head & say n my voice ‘stop that’s gay,’” read a 2011 tweet that Hart deleted this week, according to BuzzFeed News.

Hart’s forced apology is proof that the Academy Awards have been hijacked by radical LGBTQ activists.

Kevin Hart shouldn’t have apologized, but he is too weak to resist the pressure. During a 2014 interview with former BET News anchor Ed Gordon, Hart admitted that he no longer jokes about homosexuals because it would destroy his career.

“I don’t joke about it. … I don’t want that problem. … I don’t need any enemies – at all.” He acknowledged that not only can it end a career, it “can throw you under the bus” and you’ll end up in out of work in that “check cashing line.”

It seems today, the only group that comedians can make fun of is straight white Christian conservative men with power

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

During the 2018 MTV Music Awards last August, Hart was applauded by liberals for taking jabs at President Trump when he bashed Trump for his criticism over NFL players “taking a knee” as a form of protest during the national anthem. But liberals have zero tolerance for politically incorrect jokes about homosexuals, even from liberal black comedians.

Black comedian and actor Nick Cannon has come to Hart’s defense by posting tweets containing “homophobic” language from liberal white female comedians Chelsea Handler, Sarah Silverman and Amy Schumer.

In a series of tweets, Cannon called out the female comedians for their past “homophobic” tweets. In a past tweet from Handler, she used the term “fag bird”; and Cannon commented, “Interesting I wonder if there was any backlash there.” His commentary was similar to Silverman who once tweeted, “I dont mean this in a hateful way but the new bachelorette’s a faggot” and Schumer who wrote, “Enjoy skyfall fags. I’m bout to get knee deep in Helen Hunt #thesessions”

Some homosexuals refer to the Oscars as the “Super Bowl” for the gay community. And according to GLADD, the 61st Annual Grammy Awards “are going to look extremely queer this year with a huge number of LGBTQ artists nominated across all the categories.”

GLAAD CEO/president Sarah Kate Ellis said, “We were hoping this was going to turn into a teachable moment that Kevin Hart would still be hosting the Oscars and he would be using this moment to show, not only his evolution around the LGBTQ community, but also to then use the Oscar stage … to help build unity and awareness around the LGBTQ community and how we are marginalized in this country.” In other words, they didn’t expect him to put up any resistance.

The black community still doesn’t accept homosexuality as normal; therefore, Hollywood is intentionally targeting blacks with movies and TV shows that celebrate homosexuality.

Fox’s series “Empire,” with its openly gay character of Jamal Lyon (Jussie Smollett) created by the openly Gay filmmaker/TV producer Lee Daniels, has been shamelessly promoting black homosexuals in a positive light, as has CW’s new series “All American” – a show geared towards young people. Representations of black homosexuals on film and television before “Empire” didn’t glorify the deviant lifestyle.

Hollywood’s effort to emasculate black men on screen by casting them as weak, gay or transgender has been going on for decades. It seems like almost every major black man in Hollywood, has at one point in his career, put on a dress, wig and lipstick to portray women. Here are some examples:

  • Will Smith played a gay con artist in the 1993 movie “Six Degrees of Separation.”
  • Ving Rhames played a drag queen in “Holiday Heart.” And in Quentin Tarantino’s sadistic “Pulp Fiction,” Rhames played a high-level crime figure who gets brutally sodomized.
  • Tyler Perry has made a fortune playing a woman in his “Madea” movies.
  • Jamie Foxx started out playing a female character in the ’90s comedy TV hit “In Living Color.”

Other notable black actors who had to dawn dresses include Chris Tucker and Wesley Snipes.

And actor Terry Crews testified in Congress during the whole #Metoo hysteria that he was sexually assaulted by a Hollywood executive in front of his wife.

Hollywood and the Oscars are a vehicle to promote homosexuality, feminism and other deviant behaviors that make a mockery of masculinity and traditional family values.

It’s unfortunate that Kevin Hart apologized; but most black men today have been emasculated by their mothers and cannot stand firm for what is right.

Natural Law

Natural Law– “All humans have impressed upon them from the beginning of creation the principles of Natural Law…”

by Bill Lockwood

Sir William Blackstone was an English jurist, judge and politician of eighteenth century England. His Commentaries on the Laws of England were a profound study of natural law and the founders of our nation carried Blackstone with them as a reference and guide. Even Abraham Lincoln loved Blackstone and studied him copiously.

One paramount principle which our founders loved was Blackstone’s explanation of Natural Law. Blackstone wrote in 1765:

This natural law, being as old as mankind and dictated by God himself, is of course superior in obligation to any other. It is binding over all the globe, in all countries, and at all times: no human laws are of any validity, if contrary to this; and such of them as are valid derive all their force, and all their authority, from this original.

Note the following: (1) These laws are dictated by God himself. (2) They are binding to all men everywhere. (3) No human law that violates natural law is of any validity. One can hear echoes of this in the Declaration of Independence. Again, from Blackstone:

Thus when the Supreme Being formed the universe, and created matter out of nothing, He impressed certain principles upon that matter, from which it can never depart, and without which it would cease to be. When He put the matter into motion, He established certain laws of motion, to which all movable bodies must conform. And, to descend from the greatest operations to the smallest, when a workman forms a clock, or other piece of mechanism, he establishes at his own pleasure certain arbitrary laws for its direction; as that the hand shall describe a given space in a given time; to which law as long as the work conforms, so long it continues in perfection, and answers the end of its formation.

All humans have impressed upon them from the beginning of creation the principles of Natural Law—reasoning ability concerning right and wrong.

Even Cicero, whose full name was Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.), the greatest orator of the ancient Roman Republic, and was raised in a pagan society, recognized true law imbedded within the heart of each person to which each is responsible.

True law is right reason in agreement with nature; it is of universal application, unchanging and everlasting; it summons to duty by its commands, and averts from wrongdoing by its prohibitions….It is a sin to try to alter this law, nor is it allowable to repeal any part of it, and it is impossible to abolish it entirely. We cannot be freed from its obligations by senate or people, and we need not look outside ourselves for an expounder or interpreter of it. And there will not be different laws at Rome and at Athens, or different laws now and in the future, but one eternal and unchangeable law will be valid for all nations and all times, and there will be one master and ruler, that is God, over us all, for he is the author of this law, its promulgator, and its enforcing judge. Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature, and by reason of this very fact he will suffer the worst punishment.

One can hear in this echoes of Jefferson’s famous lines “the laws of nature and nature’s God.” Based upon this clear principle of natural law our founders disobeyed the unjust laws of King George.

Romans

Paul writes essentially the same thing in Romans 2:14-16, except Paul was inspired of God.

For when the Gentiles, that have not the law, do by nature the things of the law [OT revealed law, bl], these, not having the law, are a law unto themselves, in that they show the work of the law written in their hearts, their thoughts, one with another, accusing or else excusing them …

Here the apostle shows clearly that those without God’s written law have knowledge of the existence of a law within themselves. All humans instinctively have within them the understanding that some things will always be right and other things wrong.

For example, ABORTION. The forcible taking of innocent human life is wrong. The Roe v. Wade (1973) decision at the Supreme Court does not change this and one-half of our nation rightly continues to recognize it as murder. The depth of America’s sin can easily be gauged by this horrific transgression. Because our nation has been adrift for at least fifty to a hundred years or more does not mitigate our guilt.

Another illustration is, HOMOSEXUALITY. It matters not that the Supreme Court Obergefell (2015) decision dictates to states that same-sex couples may marry—it is still sinful activity and godly Americans will not simply accept it and move along. Nor should we. As Blackstone rightly said, these types of human laws “have no validity” before God nor with those who honor Him.

Democrats, The LGBTQ Community and “Conversion Therapy”

Democrats, The LGBTQ Community and “Conversion Therapy”- “Use of “harmful” “conversion therapy” by Christians supposedly leads to “depression…”

by Bill Lockwood

The Democrats have begun their final assault against liberty and the Word of God. First, there was “fake news.” Former President Obama, ever favoring totalitarian governing schemes to destroy the liberty of American citizens, launched a campaign against “fake news.” Government, not individuals, is to identify what is, and what is not real or fake news. The underlying premise is that individuals are unable to sift through true or false information—therefore remove their right and responsibility to do so. Government knows best.

Now we have Democrat-sponsored bill entitled the “Therapeutic Fraud Prevention Act 2017.” As reported by The Washington Post (April 27) “Democratic lawmakers this week introduced a bill that would ban the practice of ‘conversion therapy,’ treatments that historically have targeted the LGBT community and claim to be able to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity.”

The bill was introduced by Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), along with Sens. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.). “About 70 other members of Congress, all Democrats, have said they support the bill, which would allow the Federal Trade Commission to classify conversion therapy and its practitioners as fraudulent.” Lieu smugly remarked, “LGBTQ people are born perfect. There’s nothing to treat them for.”

A summary of the bill, whose sponsors tout as The First Federal Ban on Conversion Therapy, reads, “Conversion therapy, also known as ‘reparative therapy,’ ‘sexual orientation therapy,’ or ‘sexual orientation change efforts,’ is a practice that has been widely discredited by nearly all major American medical, psychiatric, psychological, counseling, educational and social work professional organizations. They are deceptive practices based on the false premise that being lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or gender non-conforming (LGBTQ) is a mental illness that needs to be cured.”

The report also relies on a 2009 “systematic review” by the American Psychological Association which concluded that “efforts to change sexual orientation are unlikely to be successful and involve some risk of harm, contrary to the claims of [conversion therapy] practitioners and advocates.”

Use of “harmful” “conversion therapy” by Christians supposedly leads to “depression, decreased self-esteem, substance abuse, homelessness, or suicidal behavior.” The bill would therefore allow prosecution against those who practice “conversion therapy” under Federal Trade Commission rules.

According to LifeSiteNews.com, conversion therapy includes “any practice or treatment by any person that seeks to change another individual’s sexual orientation or gender identity, including efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions, or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same gender.” LifeSiteNews apparently laments that Republicans will probably block passage of the bill.

Various organizations are claiming credit for getting the ball rolling on this legislation. LifeSiteNews reports that “This was borne out of a pro-gay Washington Post story headlined “‘LGBTQ people were born perfect’: A new bill would ban conversion therapy nationwide measure.”

On the other hand, Marxist-oriented The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), tirelessly working to unravel the culture of America and to bring freedom-lovers under a statist yoke, informs us that “The Southern Poverty Law Center filed a first-of-its-kind lawsuit against” a New Jersey conversion therapy organization called JONAH (Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing). SPLC published the politically correct dictum that “conversion therapy” is a “fraudulent practice.” “Aside from being junk science, conversion therapy encourages a climate of anti-gay bigotry,” the SPLC added.

What Shall We Say to These Things?

As is always true, the weakest intellectual case needs the support of government edicts. The ipse dixit of the SPLC or even of the United States government, if the Therapeutic Fraud Prevention Act happened were to pass, is worthless. Our self-appointed cultural leaders better hurry to ban internet articles and burn the published books which document exactly how sodomy was removed from the APA’s “mental illness” list in 1973.

Jeffrey Weeks, author of Sexuality and Its Discontents Meanings, Myths and Modern Sexualities, correctly points out that “The decision of the American Psychiatric Association to delete homosexuality from its published list of sexual disorders in 1973 was scarcely a cool, scientific decision.” Instead, “it was a response to a political campaign fueled by the belief that its original inclusion was a disorder was a reflection of an oppressive politico-medical definition of homosexuality as a problem.”

This is borne out by the numerous psychiatrists over the past few decades that described how the homosexual network, led by Frank Kameny and his Gay Liberation Front, publicly declared that “Psychiatry has waged a relentless war of extermination against us. You may take this as a declaration of war against you.”

Kameny and his rainbow legion of homosexual storm troopers disrupted the meeting of the APA in San Francisco in 1973, took over microphones, and demanded homosexuality be “removed” from the “disorder list.” The APA, feeling the furor of hardnose politics, capitulated.

Dr. Charles Socarides comments: “This was done without any valid scientific evidence to prove that homosexuality is not a disordered behavior.” Science has nothing to do with it. Yet, the SPLC has the cheek to call “junk science” and “snake oil” the fact that people are “converted” away from a homosexual lifestyle.

Perhaps most ominous is the brazen assault against religious liberty that the Democrats sponsor. Columnist Claire McCartney (Paper Mag, April 27) demonstrates the poison with which the left deals. She writes that “conversion therapy is already illegal in seven states … while the practice [conversion therapy] is widely reviled in many parts of the country, in others it is protected under the guise of religious freedom.” Further, “The bill would authorize the Federal Trade Commission to classify conversion therapy practitioners—from church leaders to licensed therapists—as fraudulent.”

There you have it. Religious freedom is a “guise” while “church leaders” are aligned in the crosshairs of total government control. Church leaders, whether on the couch, or behind the pulpit, are to be subject to penalties of law if they appeal to homosexuals to repent and turn to God, leaving a sinful lifestyle.

So, while spineless preachers dither about whether homosexuals are perhaps “born that way,” and their soft-shell preachments reflect more theological thimble-rigging than an honest exegesis of the biblical text, the government is set to make up their minds for them. With a blatant disregard for freedom of speech, Democrat lawmakers, along with pro-sodomite organizations, are setting the stage for prosecution of the pulpit.

Bill Lockwood: Is Freedom Disappearing in America?

Is Freedom Disappearing in America?- “The government will create ‘zones of exemption’ for a time which presumably will include churches.”

by Bill Lockwood

The issue is freedom. It always has been. The two-world views, a God-centered Christian worldview and the socialist/communist worldview, have always clashed in America, but now that the latter has the upper hand, freedom is on the chopping block. An absolutely perfect example of this is now occurring in the state of Iowa. The Iowa Civil Rights Act has banned places of “public accommodation” from expressing their views regarding “human sexuality” if those places either “directly or indirectly” make persons of any gender “feel unwelcome.”

Under the 1964 Civil Rights Act places of “public accommodation” are forbidden by the federal government to “discriminate” against persons of any class—be it race, color, national origin or religion. Along with this the federal government empowered itself to investigate alleged violations and prosecute.

The misstep here was to reverse what the founders had intended for a limited government. As right as it may be to eliminate discrimination based upon race, the very reason that the framers of America left the oversight for this in the hands of the states and local municipalities and forbade it to the federal government was a matter of principle. Freedom has historically been enjoyed only under limited federal government.

Our second misstep has been and continues to be the refusal of the American people—even Christians—to oppose homosexuality. This in spite of the fact that the Bible demonstrably shows that sodomy is a sin, and therefore a choice that people make. Our culture has by default placed homosexuality in the same category as race. Therefore, the same laws will apply. Now comes Obama to cram “transgenderism” into the same folder. Compliant weak-spined states meekly comply.

For example, the Iowa Civil Rights commission recently explained in a brochure that refusing to use the correct pronoun in addressing transgender individuals is a form of harassment. God’s grant of freedom of speech be hanged. Discrimination is defined by that Commission as “publicizing that the patronage of persons of any particular sexual orientation or gender identity is unwelcome, objectionable, not acceptable or not solicited.” The standard is: do not to make others feel unwelcome.

Now comes the third misstep, which naturally follows from the first two. The government decides what is a legitimate or illegitimate usage of speech; in what places or zones it may occur; who might be exempt and under what conditions. The Des Moines Register reports that Kristin Johnson, director of the Iowa Civil Rights Commission, assured churches that the “state code provides some exemptions for bona fide religious institutions engaged in activities with a bona fide religious purpose.”

The problem with this, as everyone who has not had their thinking by-passed by liberalism can see: this places the state in charge of deciding what is and what is not a legitimate religious institution. And remember, we are not talking about human or animal sacrifice or killing, which violates basic natural law codes.

The government will create “zones of exemption” for a time which presumably will include churches. I write, “for a time,” since it is already being discussed in some circles what constitutes a “legitimate” sermon or Bible lesson and what does not. Maura Strassberg, Drake University law professor said that “sermons that stick to human sexuality matters pertaining to theology would be constitutionally protected.” But according to the Des Moines Register she suggested that sometimes a situation may occur where a preacher’s sermonic material “crossed the line” into harassment. “There is a line: You go from ‘this is what God believes’ … to ‘You are bad, so we don’t want you here.’”

This would amount to the the state deciding what is and what is not proper sermon etiquette and content. Freedom is fast disappearing in America. Time to retrace our steps.

Will The Land Vomit?

 

by Bill Lockwood

Will The Land Vomit?

Who would have guessed that the “Shining City on the Hill” would have descended into the sewers of Sodom? But that is precisely what has occurred with the once-free America. Slavery to sin and corruption has officially begun with last week’s Supreme Court ruling. Servitude by the states to the Homosexual Agenda became official U.S. policy in which “rights” to same-sex marriage were “newly minted” by the dictatorship of the High Court. States cannot keep same-sex couples from marrying and must recognize their unions. Obergefell v. Hodges became a historic moment.

The Bible is exceedingly clear that homosexuality is an “unnatural” impurity. Leviticus 18 catalogs some of the more heinous crimes about which the Israelites were severely warned. “Defile not yourselves in an of these things; for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out from before you: and the land is defiled … and the land vomits out her inhabitants” (24,25).

Again God warned: “For all these abominations have the men of the land done, that were before you, and the land is defiled; that land vomit not you out also, when you defile it, as it vomited out the nation that was before you” (27, 28).

To what vices did God refer? Among the more prominent were: Homosexuality. “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind; it is an abomination” (v. 22). “If  a man lie with mankind, as with womankind, both of them have committed abomination …” (v. 13). Under Old Testament Israelite law they were to be put to death.

In the New Testament the inspired Paul wrote that the “unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” Among those to whom he refers are the “effeminate” and “abusers of themselves with mankind” (1 Cor. 6:9-11). “Effeminate” is a biblical euphemism for one who plays the “female role” in a homosexual relationship and allows other men to violate his anus. “Abusers of themselves with mankind” is one Greek word which signifies the homosexual who violates another man’s body.

One commentator wrote about the “confusion” of homosexuality. “A horrible confusion of natures which God distinguished, and order which God appointed, the overthrow of all bounds of religion, honesty, sobriety, and modesty.” Israelite kings in the Old Testament did not heed God’s warnings as Ahaz (2 Chron. 28:3) and Manasseh (2 Chron. 33:6) actually institutionalized homosexuality along with the slaughtering of children. Truly, it was mass confusion and Israel lost her land possession due to the seriousness of these crimes.

America

Under Obama’s wicked leadership America has also overthrown all bounds of religion, honesty, sobriety, modesty, and decency. As Christians always suspected and David Axelrod, Obama’s former chief advisor,  confirmed, Obama lied during the 2008 presidential campaign at the behest of his political handlers. Axelrod wrote, “Opposition to gay marriage was particularly strong in the black church, and as he ran for higher office, he grudgingly accepted the counsel of more pragmatic folks like me, and modified his position to support civil unions rather than marriage, which he would term a ‘sacred union.’”

Lying Obama, who tweeted that “Love Wins” has always been a supporter of Sodomy. Fabricating and lying is “love” in his book. Sadly, thousands of black Christians voted for the liar-in-chief, apparently due to his skin color which trumps even God’s Word in their minds. Myriads of ill-informed white Christians voted the same thinking that having a black president would somehow quiet the left on racist charges. What monumental miscalculations.

How did all of this occur? In three easy steps. One, equal rights for all races and peoples enforced by the federal government—14th Amendment. Two, the cultural acceptance of homosexuality as something with which one is born. Homosexual practice is counted as a minority classification or “orientation” instead of immoral behavior and choice. It is supposedly not a choice that people make. Three, put these together and give us a pro-homosexual socialist for president and one finds the SCOTUS ruling.

Where did society err? For err it did. It is in number two above. The cultural acceptance of homosexuality as an “orientation”—something with which you are born—and not a preference or choice. This is the politically-correct and scarcely questioned axiom which is enforced by government ostracizing. Homosexuality however, is not in the genetic makeup of individuals but is an immoral choice that people make.

Until 1973 homosexuality was listed in the Diagnostic and Statistic Manual (DSM) of the American Psychiatric Association as a Mental Disorder. But by a vote of psychiatrists that year following intense political pressure from homosexual activists who had stormed one of their meetings and shouted down the opposition homosexuality was removed from the “Sexual Disorder” list.

“The decision of the American Psychiatric Association to delete homosexuality from its published list of sexual disorders in 1973 was scarcely a cool, scientific decision,” confesses Jeffrey Weeks, founder-editor of the Gay Left. “It was a response to a political campaign fueled by the belief that its original inclusion as a disorder was a reflection of an oppressive politico-medical definition as a problem.”

In other words, the decision to accept homosexuality in American culture as an “orientation” had nothing at all to do with science. Nor did it come about because, as one wrote, “a group of doctors suddenly changed their views.” Instead, it followed an aggressive and sustained campaign by homosexual activists utilizing hard-ball political tactics. And if one thinks that it all will stop with the SCOTUS ruling and that the Homosexual Marxist Network will honor religious liberty that person is ignorant of the wiles of Satan and the homosexual agenda.

When Barack Obama became president this day was on the radar. Illuminating the White House with rainbow-colored lights signals the irreversible cesspool of filth into which this president has led us. But be sure: the land will vomit you out.
