THE GAYING OF AMERICA
Homosexuality – the way God sees it
Exclusive: Michael Glatze calls on Christian men to stand against ‘rape’ of divine relationship
By Michael Glatze
Homosexuality is a problem.
For you, perhaps, Bozo. For me, your attitude toward homosexuality is the problem.
Let’s just be clear: Everybody knows that homosexuality is not the same thing as heterosexuality. But what not everybody understands is that homosexuality is not a perversion of heterosexuality. Homosexuality is a perversion of the correct relationship between God and His creation, man.
Hmmm… To start with, homosexuality is not a “perversion” of anything. Beyond that you seem to be saying it’s a perversion of a “relationship” between two “guys.”
Thus, since God is male and His creation – man – is male, the appropriate relationship (under the Headship of Christ) is to be satisfied in spiritual union with God.
In rhetoric this is called “begging the question.” It means assuming the conclusion in presenting the premise. You can’t base a second conclusion on the fact that God is “male” until you first prove that he/she/it is. Are you sufficiently presumptuous as to claim you know what one would see if God were to raise the hem of his dainty pink nightie?
This “Headship of Christ” thing is kind of funky! Are you saying that there’s a three-boy relationship here, and that Christ is the “dom” and you and God “subs”? But with no hint of carnality since just one of the three of you is flesh and blood, the other two manifesting themselves only in visions of what someone existing only as pure spirit might look like. Maybe like an image appearing in a desert. mirage?
That is why Paul, in 1 Corinthians 6, says we have “become one spirit” with God. And, it is also why Paul describes, in Romans 1, the pattern of degradation that takes place when men turn from God. Ultimately, it results in homosexuality, because the man – seeking for a spiritual fellowship with God – positions himself either as a “god” for another man, or in the position of worshiping another man as “god.”
This seems an acknowledgement of the practical difficulty I mentioned just above. A man wants to bridge the existential gap and consummate his love. In terms of this threesome that means making it with another man, with either him or the other guy pretending that his carnal flesh is in fact spirit of the same substance as God. And that’s how you define homosexuality?
God gifted me with a personal walk through homosexuality to the other side. Now, today, I’m happy and living a good, God-honoring life. I am satisfied with my God; thus, He is satisfied with me. And in that satisfaction I am able to share with people the kind of Christianity I know honors my Lord and Savior…
So God was like Virgil, and you like Dante the Pilgrim, walking through that part of Mt. Purgatory where the “unnaturals” were going through detox? That seems somewhat prideful on your part. But what comes next goes way beyond pridefulness and into world class hubris. “I am satisfied with God; thus He is satisfied with me.” In other words, you control God’s emotional state (God being the sort of spiritual being that experiences human emotions like love and anger and jealousy and fulfillment). It’s a strange universe you inhabit, Mr. Glatze.

Oh, incidentally, how does the Holy Ghost fit in here. Does it have sex or gender? And what about women – like Eve, Lilith, and the Virgin Mary? And how does the last’s impregnation relate to the question above concerning sexual consummation of a relationship between a flesh and blood human and a spirit?
Lilith, Adam’s first wife. A common version of the legend is that Lilith liked to be on top during sex. Adam wanted always to be dominant, so he asked God to make another woman for him, one who wouldn’t try to be his equal. So God took one of Adam’s ribs and made Eve, a subordinate part of her master. Lilith was kicked out and left to wander the earth — some say as a witch, some a demon, some a succubus. She’s often depicted with red hair. In earlier centuries she was blamed for wet dreams and SIDS.
