Penn State University is in the headlines every day now over the acts of a homosexual pedophile and the university’s complicity in an assistant coach who allegedly violated several young boys during his tenure as a coach and as a head of children’s advocacy organization. The aftermath is the public judging of revered coach Joe Paterno for not doing enough to stop it or to bring police into the mix sooner. It seems as though the public is losing sight of some of the important factors here. Children were abused. The abuser was a homosexual pedophile–not Joe Paterno. Now those who participated in a cover up, if they did so, have perpetrated a horrible act against humanity. But the culprit is homosexuality.
I know that there will be some Christians getting mad about this because there are so many out there that believe that homosexuality is just OK. They argue that people are born that way. They argue that they are all God’s children so we should love them. And I know that this column will be misinterpreted and misconstrued. But bottom line is, homosexuality is an abomination unto the Lord. And it is certainly an abomination unto the children and the families of those children whose lives will be forever changed by this vile and disgusting behavior that American society continues to try to excuse. It wasn’t Joe Paterno who abused those children. The man who did it was a homosexual.
From a Biblical world view, all homosexual acts are perverted. In Leviticus 18:22, the Lord says, “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” In Leviticus 20:13, the Lord says, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” This is how serious a sin homosexuality is to God and how God wished it to be handled among his people. If you want a New Testament picture of how homosexuality is viewed, Romans 1:21 through 32–words like “vile affections,” “reprobate mind,” “dishonor their own bodies,” concluding, “they which commit such things are worthy of death.”
Nowadays, however, homosexuality is celebrated. Its on just about every TV show. Its taught in public schools as normal.It is a protected class. Homosexuals compare themselves with blacks regarding discrimination. I can tell you that I have met former homosexuals, but I have never met a former black man. When society puts such an emphasis on an evil thing, is it no wonder that Joe Paterno would be ushered out of office in shame for “not doing enough” when the spotlight ought to be on the pervert and his homosexual deeds? Even the American Psychological Association has published papers saying man-boy relationships are healthy to the child. With society so obsessed with approving perversion, is it any wonder that there are not more Penn State-type stories?
