Violent and Degrading Passions

One of P.Z. Myers’ Atheist minions emailed the following to “Mike Koelzer, a member of American Life League Associate group Pharmacists for Life International.”

‘And..... the rumor is you have quite a nice looking butt and if you play your cards right ... well, let's just say, I can be awfully grateful.’

This reminds me of Romans 1, Sodom & Gomorrah, and a blog series I wrote for Ales Rarus regarding a homosexual bible study I attended at Pitt.

Therefore, God handed them over to impurity through the lusts of their hearts for the mutual degradation of their bodies.
They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and revered and worshiped the creature rather than the creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
Therefore, God handed them over to degrading passions. Their females exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the males likewise gave up natural relations with females and burned with lust for one another. Males did shameful things with males and thus received in their own persons the due penalty for their perversity.
And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God handed them over to their undiscerning mind to do what is improper.
Romans 1:24-28

The two angels reached Sodom in the evening, as Lot was sitting at the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he got up to greet them; and bowing down with his face to the ground, he said, "Please, gentlemen, come aside into your servant's house for the night, and bathe your feet; you can get up early to continue your journey." But they replied, "No, we shall pass the night in the town square."
He urged them so strongly, however, that they turned aside to his place and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking cakes without leaven, and they dined.
Before they went to bed, all the townsmen of Sodom, both young and old--all the people to the last man--closed in on the house.
They called to Lot and said to him, "Where are the men who came to your house tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have intimacies with them."
Genesis 19:1-5

This email is almost a case study of what happens to someone when they don’t believe in God: they want to have “unnatural” “intimacies” with those of the same sex. Instead of holy and loving “intimacies” in marriage, they are traded for “shameful” and violent and degrading ones.

May God have mercy on us all.
