Teresa Harris, a Nashvillian, filed suit against her employer for sexual harassment. Because she suffered no psychological damage — she lost. The Supreme Court later reversed the lower court’s decision and now women may recover damages in sexual harassment cases where psychological factors are not considered. All men who are found guilty of sexual harassment can now be sued —. well almost all anyway.
They tell us that homosexuals are what they are because they are genetically oriented to have sexual desires for members of the same sex — men with men; women with women doing what our Bible says is “unseemly” (Rom. 1:27). Some researcher came up with a very limited amount of “evidence” of differences in the brains of homosexuals and normal people. That raises yet another question for legislators to unravel. The government says homosexuals must have their rights defended, you know.
I suppose a homosexual who attempts to ply his perverted ways on another could claim complete irresponsibility — after all he did not choose to be perverted — he was allegedly born that way. Then when a pedophile seeks unwanted sexual pleasure with a child he could also claim he was not responsible — he was-born that way. All of this is pureidy old “hog-wash.”
If the Bible counted for anything with any of those who are our legislative guardians this would’'t be a problem. All could recognize that sin is sin, perversion is perversion, and normal is normal. All could recognize that men and women should respect each other, that all should avoid sinful sexual misbehavior (1 Cor. 6:18). We would be done with the foolish idea that the sexually perverted are born that way.
We would agree that “the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God.” We would avoid deception for “neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God..” We would realize people who choose to live a sinful life can change and be saved. “Such were some of you, but you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Cor. 6:9-11).
Don’t let yourself or your children be misled into thinking that people are born with genetic differences that make them sin. Sin in a chosen style of life. Those who choose to be sexually impure do so by personal choice. That includes the lecherous boss, the homosexual, the lesbian, the pedophile, and any other sexually sinful way of life you can find.
Those who will sit under the beautiful tree of life when this life is over won’t worry about any kind of harassment — the immoral will not be there. “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may. go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood” (Rev. 22:15) -- DRS .
