Here we have a perfect example of how the Liberal agenda is incompatible with the freedom of religion and speech. This also shows how true Civil Rights are in danger if gay activists are not stopped in hijacking what a true minority is. One of the assistant football coach’s at Nebraska had the courage to stand by his conviction and state publicly that homosexuality is sin, and now the thought police are after him. From the Christian Post:
University of Nebraska’s assistant football coach, Ron Brown, a committed evangelical Christian, has been under public scrutiny and is facing calls for his dismissal after he expressed his beliefs on homosexuality during an Omaha City Council meeting in March.
The late March meeting was held by seven board members to discuss a proposed anti-discrimination ordinance that protects homosexual and transgender students attending the university – an ordinance which Brown argued against.
In his three-minute address to the council, Brown questioned the “discernment” of the board members, insisting that trying to protect one group would mean another group has to lose protection.
The assistant football coach then shared that he believes the Bible says homosexuality is a sin. He added, however, “No matter which way you go, it’s going to be an unprotection [sic] because it’s man’s opinion. So the real question I guess I have for you all is – what does God say?”
Brown added, “The question I have for you all is, like Pontius Pilate, what are you going to do with Jesus? Ultimately, if you don’t have a relationship with him, and you don’t really have a Bible-believing mentality, really, anything goes… At the end of the day it matters what God thinks most.
“For those of you on this council who have a relationship with Christ, and you know if you do, you will be held to great accountability for the decision you make.”
Typical Liberal reaction to this calls for Brown to be fired.
Shortly after his speech, Barbara Baier of the Lincoln Board of Education reportedly wrote to administrators at University of Nebraska requesting that they fire Brown for his comments.
The university’s leadership has tried to distanced itself from Brown’s comments, with Chancellor Perlman telling The Associated Press that the coach’s statements do not reflect the beliefs of the university.
Brown, 55, continues to stand by his Christian convictions in spite of criticism over his remarks.
“To be fired for my faith would be a greater honor than to be fired because we didn’t win enough games,” Brown told The Associated Press.
“I haven’t lost any sleep over it. I realize at some point, we live in a politically correct enough culture where that very well could happen,” he added.
Gay activists should stop reducing their identity to a sexual act. People are so much more than who they sleep with, to base a movement on sexuality is absurd. Will members of true minorities stand by and let gay activists persecute them for standing against the notion that their sexual activity is the same as their ethnicity? I sure hope not.
