The witness of St. Paul the Apostle on the evil of homosexual acts ~ to reject the Apostle is to reject Christ


The foolish heart having become "vain" [proud], became "darkened", then became a "fool"; this is the mysterious beginnings of the idolatrous heart and mind of those who are seduced into the evil of sin; such as homosexuality and excusing it. So says St. Paul. So says the man struck off his horse those 2000 years ago and given a special mission to preach the truth of the Gospel to the lustful, the wicked, the blind, the "darkened", the "unclean", the perverted gentiles who had taken up "unnatural affections". Would Our Blessed Saviour chose as his Apostle a man who would err on morality, as the homosexualists claim? It is an absurdity to think this. A rejection of St. Paul is a rejection of Christ. 

We can see a continuation of this "darkening", this "foolishness", this evil in the endless clamour for acceptance of the evil of homosexuality, most recently in the homosexualist outburst pertaining to the proposed Indiana State law on protecting Christians for violating their consciences. 
St. Paul: Romans 1, 16-30
For I am not ashamed of the gospel. For it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and to the Greek. [17] For the justice of God is revealed therein, from faith unto faith, as it is written: The just man liveth by faith. [18] For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and injustice of those men that detain the truth of God in injustice: [19] Because that which is known of God is manifest in them. For God hath manifested it unto them. [20] For the invisible things of him, from the creation of the world, are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made; his eternal power also, and divinity: so that they are inexcusable.
[21] Because that, when they knew God, they have not glorified him as God, or given thanks; but became vain in their thoughts, and their foolish heart was darkened. [22] For professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. [23] And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of the image of a corruptible man, and of birds, and of fourfooted beasts, and of creeping things. [24] Wherefore God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness, to dishonour their own bodies among themselves. [25] Who changed the truth of God into a lie; and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
[26] For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. [27] And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error. [28] And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not convenient; [29] Being filled with all iniquity, malice, fornication, avarice, wickedness, full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity, whisperers, [30] Detractors, hateful to God, contumelious, proud, haughty, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents...

We always believed, going against the natural laws is self destructive, whether one is spiritual of not, history is full of instances where when a nation does not follow it...they fall...no exceptions. The west is on the line, where they go from here will dictate it's future...What really bothers a lot of people is this "its our way, you have no choice" whenever this is imposed, the results are never what they expected. If gays continue on this path, they will face growing resentment, they want respect at the expense of others. And as history shows, resentment precludes hate. The next move is theirs.
