Stand up for Jesus!

We now seem to be living in a world where lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons have set the standards of right and wrong, moral or immoral. And anyone who refuses them service or opportunity is criticized and declared “against gays”!

It seems no one else can have standards except them. It’s their way or the highway!

I encourage the Boy Scouts and other organizations with Christian values and standards to remain strong in the face of such criticism and threats.

After all, Jesus faced the same criticism and threats, and he mumbled not a word.

Just because someone has different values than the one who feels rejected, that doesn’t mean compassion and tolerance is lacking. It just means that we disagree as to whose values we stand on.

Do we not have the right to our standards and our values?

Money doesn’t always “talk,” Lockheed Martin. I say, “Keep your money if we have to change our values to meet yours.”

Stand strong, Scouts! Stand up for Jesus!
