The Illinois Family Institute is known as one of the most virulently anti-LGBT groups in the nation. It was designated a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2009.
Laurie Higgins, the org’s “cultural analyst,” is particularly noteworthy for her unhinged rants about LGBT people and wild claims that mix religion together with a big heap of nonsense.
In a recent post to the group’s website, Higgins proves she’s still got it. This time, she’s upset that President Obama designated the Stonewall Inn and surrounding area as a national monument.
President Barack Obama has decided that what the world needs now is a national park dedicated to sexual deviance. In his unbiblical belief that homoeroticism is something to be publicly celebrated, on June 24 President Obama proclaimed that the 1969 Stonewall riot that took place outside a seedy homosexual bar in NYC and which officially marks the start of the social and political revolution to normalize sexual deviance should be commemorated.
…Our president, who claims to be a follower of Christ, not merely shares in the celebration of wickedness but uses the office established by God-fearing men to promote it.
…Was Obama’s unseemly act a proclamation of social and political liberation from unjust oppression, or was it the ordination of a gnostic/neopagan monument to the unyoking of sex from truth?
Since Higgin’s piece ends with that question, I’ll go ahead and answer it for her. It was definitely “social and political liberation from unjust oppression.” Here’s a tidbit she should chew on. She’s one of the unjust oppressors.
Another speck of sanity I’ll provide for free… Gnosticism came about in the 2nd century (or later) and is primarily defined in a Christian context. To date, no pre-Christian gnostic texts have been found. Neopagan beliefs are incredibly diverse, but they flow from pre-Christian religious ideas. They’re not one and the same.
