Read this story – then read what WGLT wrote about the sermon: http://wglt.org/post/eastview-pastors-sex-sermon-called-offensive#stream/0
By: Diane Benjamin
At the very end of last Monday’s Council meeting Alderman Scott Black made some comments about an “event” he found offensive. He never said the event was a sermon.
Evidently this sermon was advertised. It took place at Eastview Christian, the topic was sex. Actually, it was the Biblical view of sex. No political correctness was included. Yes, some people were offended, a few people even protested outside.
Let me finish the title to this story:
We don’t all think alike. We don’t all believe the same things. We don’t all participate in the same activities, sleep the same hours, use the same transportation, visit the same restaurants, or have the same desire to hang out in downtown or uptown.
Some people think they have the duty, right, or authority to force people to be just like them.
More than 50 million dead babies later, the pro-choice crowd still hasn’t won.
We don’t have to agree. We don’t have to be clones of each other. Some countries do believe that, not here.
Free Speech exists for all sides. Speech you don’t agree with is the most important. NO ONE has a right to deny anyone’s right to free speech. I’d rather know what somebody believes than guess what the secret agenda is.
There is another problem:
Silencing free speech and freedom of religion is only a first step. The extreme radicals see their opening – next week it’s Champaign.
Title of the demonstration: Smashing Fascism: Radical Resistance Against White Supremacy
Anti-Israel and anti-white speech will be prominent.
This is not who Americans are.
People risked their lives in rickety boats hundreds of years ago for Freedom of Religion. Our churches are now being told the Bible is hate speech. Thank you Scott Black.
Watch Scott Black here:
Then watch the first 2 1/2 minutes of the sermon:
There was no hate speech!
Respect for each other’s opinions.
You live your life, I live mine.
No one, especially government representatives, have a right to infringe on Freedom of Speech or Religion.
It is possible to disagree and not hate. Anyone who doesn’t get that should attend a church more often.
