The Lexington homosexual couple who have made national headlines by having quadruplets using the services of a surrogate mother have have earned the ire of traveling homosexual protester Fred Phelps of Kansas. Apparently the last straw was the recent christening of the children by a Catholic priest who also blessed the two men as parents. Phelps has a protest planned for tomorrow. From what I've seen of Phelps and his congregation their tactics aren't very Christlike, holding signs like 'God Hates Fags'. But the homosexual couple have been playing the local and national media on this for months now. They seem shocked (shocked!) by the negative reaction after rubbing everyone's face in their sinful behavior.

I've written about this previously and expressed my feelings about the media fawning. But as I said in my sermon on the issue, homosexuality is wrong but showing personal hostility toward these men is not the proper route. There were those in the Corinthian church who had been involved in homosexual behavior, but Paul told them 'you were washed, were sanctified, were justified.' (1 Cor. 6:9-11) The best course of action is to refuse to normalize their behavior, but pray that they would turn away from it.
