Rights Without Limits?

Someone responded this morning to an email I sent out. As I answered him, I thought I'd share it with everyone:

> Some of the best workers that we have are supposedly
> homosexual, but they don't announce it. I feel that they
> should have rights, but no more than anyone else.

My response:

I agree wholeheartedly. There are "rights" that we ALL have, and I would not deny anyone those rights. One has the right to go out on the street and flail his arms all over the place, but his rights do not include hitting me with those arms.

Homosexuals have the "right" to live that lifestyle if they want. But they don't have the right to assault me and my children with their parades and visible intrusions into society. They don't have the right to force their agenda upon our children in elementary schools.

In the eyes of God, according to his Word, homosexuality stands alongside murder as equally detestable in his eyes. If anyone doesn't think sodomy is as heinous a sin as murder, let the Word of God show them. He calls it "an abomination," and that's the strongest word possible to describe sin.

I wouldn't want a murderer teaching my children, in fact I wouldn't want a murderer anywhere near my children. And I wouldn't want society to allow parades of murderers defying God and proclaiming the "rights" of murderers in society. What rights would you give murderers? Thieves? Child molesters?

The one sin kills the body, the other kills the soul.
