'God's Voice' Conference: LGBT Activists Will Target Churches
A psychotherapist has warned a Christian conference opposed to queer ideology that if LGBT activists successfully ban secular counseling for people with unwanted same-sex attraction, they will next go after religious counselors.
A conference known as â€śGodâ€™s Voice: A Biblical Response to the Queering of the Churchâ€ť was held Feb. 22-23 at Fairview Baptist Church of Edmond, Oklahoma.
David Pickup, a licensed therapist who is a board member at the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) and a practitioner of sexual orientation change efforts therapy, spoke at the Godâ€™s Voice conference last weekend.
During his remarks, Pickup warned his audience that for the state legislators trying to ban SOCE therapy, â€śthe next step is to come after you.â€ť...
I don't recall the state this was in, but recently, there was a transgender man who now identifies as a woman, who applied for a job, and was initially hired for the position. The company ended up retracting his hire because they discovered that he lied about a previous job on his application; failing to tell them he was actually fired. The man hired an attorney, claiming he wasn't hired because he's transgender, and somehow, it made it's way into the court, even though it was about lying on his application. The case itself aside, the LGBTQ attorney began to make some points to the presiding judge about unlawful discrimination, in general, and the judge had an interesting response. He said that if we were to go by the strict letter of the law, and the constitution, anything that's been gender assigned; anything gender specific, is, according to the letter of the law, discriminatory, and thus, illegal. Some areas mentioned were men's and women's restrooms, changing rooms, and locker rooms, etc. I wonder how long it will be before this letter of the law becomes real life, and the law decrees that there's no longer any such thing as gender; deeming it offensive, or whatever.

I think the reality of these last 3/4 decades is that Satan has been using the sodomites to attack the church and Bible already.
If there was no Bible - then this world would be as queer as a nine dollar bill and none would speak out against Satan's followers.
Gen 18:20 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; 21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know."
1 Kings 14:24 And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel."
Isaiah 3:9 The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves."
The comments the the Mooreâ€™s and Mohlerâ€™s et al donâ€™t know what going on in the area of sexual identity therapy is very very true. For 20 years we have bowed at the alter of the mini popes the Southern eastern Seminary has churned, out we are here. Please donâ€™t take stock in anything but what the Bible has said about our roles as men and women. Confusion is the work of Satan and thatâ€™s as clear as it can get.
I heard another voice from Heaven, saying, come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues; for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.
