Michael Brown on Blame the Democrats, Not Me, for Keeping LGBT Issues in the News

Don’t blame me for writing yet another article on LGBT issues. Blame Beto. Or Booker. Or Biden. Or Buttigieg. Or Warren.

The Democratic presidential candidates are pushing this agenda, and quite aggressively at that.

They’re the ones talking about what the Bible allegedly says and does not say about homosexuality.

They’re the ones threatening our religious liberties.

They’re the ones wanting to indoctrinate our children.

All we’re doing is responding.

They’re the ones telling us we don’t have the right to our biblically based beliefs.

They’re the ones pushing a radical, revisionist agenda.

They’re the ones telling hundreds of millions of people that the explicit teachings of Scripture must be ignored and that the church (and synagogue) has been wrong on these issues for 2,000 years.

If you’d rather not read about this in the news every day, don’t blame me. Blame them.

But that’s the way it’s been for the last 50 years.

An aggressive agenda came knocking at our doors.

At the doors of our children’s schools and universities. At the doors of our places of business. At the doors of our courts. At the doors of our entertainment. At the doors of our social media. At the doors of our churches.

How could we not respond? How could we not push back?

I first became burdened to address LGBT activism in 2004, with this motto soon rising in my heart: “Reach out and resist,” meaning, reach out to the people with compassion; resist the agenda with courage.

That meant that, as much as I cared for individuals and reached out to them with compassion, there would be fierce resistance as well. And immediately, it became clear to me that those who came out of the closet wanted to put us in the closet. It was not a matter of live and let live, of civil and respectful disagreement.

To the contrary, those who had the temerity to resist the goals of LGBT activism would be vilified and maligned in the strongest, vilest terms.

These radical activists would tolerate no dissent, their unspoken mantra being, “We will intimidate and we will manipulate until you capitulate.”
