Amnesty International Declares War

What tumultuous times are they in which we live? Not so longer ago in Australia, it was a criminal offence to engage in homosexual sex. But if a proposed bill in Victoria regarding ‘conversion therapy’ is passed, it will be a crime to persuade — or even pray — for someone who practises it.

Amnesty International has presented the following infographic:

Make no mistake, as is evidenced from the cartoon strip above, this campaign is especially targeting the Christian church. Unsurprisingly, they ignore the still-common Islamic practice of homosexuals being thrown from tall buildings. Martyn Iles, the managing director of the Australian Christian Lobby, wrote the following on social media:

Note the theme — Christianity is harmful. Christian teaching, Christian communities, and Christian expression must be criminal.

Premier Daniel Andrews’ statement today was clear that the “ideology behind” “conversion practices” must be targeted.

Given that “conversion practices” apparently include prayer, scripture reading, teaching abstinence, and the idea of “change” among other things… I guess that means Christianity.
His government’s bill puts people in prison for these things.

La Trobe University found 15 people to tell stories like the one below, for its report to the government.

I guarantee I can find far more who will proudly tell you that they were changed by the power of the Gospel, and it was the best thing that ever happened to them.

But the government is erasing them, along with their faith.

This is a government with an irrational hatred of this kind of faith — calling it “bigoted quackery.”

We will run a rip-snorter of a campaign against the Bill, but if it were to pass, there is
only one solution: break the law.

I will break the law, and I hope that many will join me. If we don’t, an entire demographic will be cut off from the freedom found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

“We must obey God rather than men.” (Acts 5:29)

Amnesty International has effectively declared war on all people of faith. It was never about love — let alone “tolerance” — but a complete capitulation to their own ideology. I heard a preacher say in the mid-90’s that Christians in this country would be sent to gaol in his lifetime. And it would be over the issue of homosexuality and perceived discrimination.

He was right. And it looks like that time has finally arrived.

    All I will say is remember the Crusades and be careful what you wish for to Amnesty International. Some Christians refuse to Turn the other cheek.
