When to confront (and when not to)

Some comments on our last post about a confrontation with a pro-gay man in Omagh leave us in no doubt that some people think I got a “taste of my own medicine” and that I “had it coming” and “got what I deserved etc (and similar childish nonsense, some of which we have deleted,) because I/we have publicly opposed homosexual events for several years now.

However, for us to be confronted by a pro-gay activist outside a café was neither the time nor the place for a heated and somewhat threatening encounter.

The commenter below refers to an occasion recently when I was a lone protestor outside a LGBT recruiting event in Omagh and he thinks that because I engaged in a Christian witness to those entering the venue (which he describes as “harassing them”)  I “reaped what I have sown” in that I was confronted by a pro-gay activist outside that café last Friday.

Read his comment and my response.

Commenter Rob said: “Perhaps having experienced this frightening experience, you might reflect on how vulnerable LGBT people feel when you and your ilk turn up uninvited outside support services and harass them as they enter…. you reap what you sow Susan…..”

Mrs. White replied: “Regarding your comment on my most recent post, I presume you are referring to my lone protest against a LGBT recruiting event in Omagh in June. If anyone was harassed on that occasion, it was me, because six or seven of them attempted to follow me across the street to menace and intimidate me. There is a time and a place to confront that which is evil and a LGBT recruiting event is one of those (times and places) and a gay pride parade is another. These are events when the homosexual lobby flaunt their sin and try to force acceptance of it on society. It is right for Christians to publicly oppose such degrading spectacles.
I would not confront homosexuals if they were in a café having tea etc nor would I wait for them outside to lambast them. However, if two homosexuals were kissing in a café or on the street, I would say something to them because they are flaunting their sin and demanding that I put up with it. I would also speak to a heterosexual couple if they were kissing in a café because it is not proper for them to behave in that way. Some years ago, there was a disgusting heterosexual couple misbehaving in a hospital waiting area and I firmly and sharply told them to stop their wicked behaviour or I would report them to hospital authorities.
In your comment Rob, you quote Scripture about reaping what we sow. That is true, we all reap what we sow, and what do you think the homosexual will reap? By quoting Scripture, you obviously believe some verses are true. What about the verses that condemn homosexuality Rob?”

  1. You pick and choose when and where you harass people in public, so other people have the right to choose when they do same to you. Why should other people respect your private space when you do not do the same to them?

    • “Gay Pride” parades are degrading PUBLIC spectacles, Madam, and the same is true of homosexual rallies for pretend marriage. We Christians have a God-given duty to publicly oppose such. We would not confront two homosexuals sitting in a café nor would we wait for them coming out of a café. However, if they were sitting in a café kissing or walking down the street kissing, we would reprimand them, and you would know our views on these matters, Madam, if you had read our posts and our replies to comments more carefully.

      • Unfortunately Mrs White the rest of society does not exist to conform to YOUR idea of when and where you can be approached and when you can not. You put yourself out there so you must be prepared to deal with the fall out.That’s life.

    • Israel was a theocracy in the Old Testament and it was subject to all the moral and civil laws of God. Some of those laws are no longer in force. We are permitted to eat shellfish today, for example and we do not stone adulterers or rebellious children or homosexuals to death. We Christians don’t, but Islam does i.e stone certain people to death.

      The moral laws of God are still in force however and there should be penalties for adultery and homosexuality such as fines and/or imprisonment. Evangelical churches should also discipline unrepentant immoral professing Christians but not by stoning them to death!

      The quote you gave in one of your comments about reaping what we sow IS a Bible verse and I ask you again, what do you think the homosexual will reap?
