CHRISTIE: “HOMOSEXUALITY IS NOT A SIN;” BANS THERAPY

By standfortruth.com

TRENTON – Reiterating his belief that homosexuality is ‘not a sin,’ the Republican governor of New Jersey signed a bill into law on Monday that bans the use of conversion or reparative therapy, or to otherwise help youth who are struggling with homosexual feelings to overcome their temptations.

Governor Chris Christie’s office released a statement during the day outlining that Assembly Bill 3371 had been signed into law following its passage in both state houses in June.

Text of the bill (click here) notes that the law bans “the practice of seeking to change a person’s sexual orientation, including, but not limited to, efforts to change behaviors, gender identity, or gender expressions, or to reduce or eliminate sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward a person of the same gender.” However, the regulation does not apply to counseling that seeks to affirm homosexual emotions or behaviors.

“[This bill] shall not include counseling for a person seeking to transition from one gender to another, or counseling that  provides acceptance, support, and understanding of a person or facilitates a person’s coping, social support, and identity exploration and development, including sexual orientation-neutral interventions to prevent or address unlawful conduct or unsafe sexual practices; and does not seek to change sexual orientation,” it explains.

In signing the bill, Christie attached a personal statement explaining that while he wants to protect the interests of parents whose children struggle with homosexuality, he believes that efforts to help youth fight their inclinations can be harmful.

    I guess Gov. Christie has dislodged God and His word for clearly it written that such behavior is immoral and an abomination in God’s eyes. I hope he knows what he said is in direct opposition to what the Bible says and in doing such does not clam Christianity as his faith.

    Just another politician who has “evolved” for votes. Democrats and Republicans are two sides of the same coin and I feel bad for people who are Christian yet continue to defend one side or the other when the nature of both parties are anti-Christ. These people are chosen, not elected.

    LOLOL! Tells us what god he serves…..because it sho ain’t the One True Living God, who said that it IS A SIN to lie man with man or woman with woman. Sooooo much more I could say but I’d be preaching to the choir! And let the choir (EXTV) say AMEN!

    He must be homosexual. They all think & talk alike & support this perverted & “sinful” lifestyle. Additionally, homosexuals are against God & will usher in the antichrist

  5. Baraka Barnes

    Will the man OR woman who is NOT afraid to stand firm on his/her convictions, despite ridicule, PLEASE stand up? “My church believes it’s a sin, but I personally don’t”… come one!! REALLY!!?? 5. But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. 7. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, 8. [being] a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.- James 1:5-8

    Can a tiger change his stripes. i saw this post earlier and thought a homosexual open or secret will always supprt an antichrist agenda. This was the reason the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed and will be th esame thing that will eventually destroy America. Romans 1:26-32 talks specifically about this. So when God gives people over to their own lusts this is the result. Christie’s lust is to appease a sinful agenda for the votes of debased men and women and to keep those who could get help from getting it.

    Hi, this is so sad..same sex marriage has just become legal in New Zealand this week. People are flocking in from Australia to get get married here. Just cant stand it anymore…anyways heres what happen down at the registry office I thought I might share lol

    In light of today being the first day that genderless ‘marriages’ have been introduced in to New Zealand, we thought this commentary was timely.
    “Next.”

    “Good morning. We want to apply for a marriage licence.”

    “Names?”

    “Tim and Jim Jones.”

    “Jones? Are you related? I see a resemblance.”

    “Yes, we’re brothers.”

    “Brothers? You can’t get married.”

    “Why not? Aren’t you giving marriage licences to same gender couples?”

    “Yes, thousands. But we haven’t had any siblings. That’s incest! Why do you want to get married?”

    “For the financial benefits, of course. And we do love each other. Besides, we don’t have any other prospects.”

    “But we’re issuing marriage licences to gay and lesbian couples who’ve been denied equal protection under the law. If you are not gay, you can get married to a woman.”

    “Wait a minute. A gay man has the same right to marry a woman as I have. But just because I’m straight doesn’t mean I want to marry a woman. I want to marry Jim.”

    “And I want to marry Tim, Are you going to discriminate against us just because we are not gay?”

    “All right, all right. I’ll give you your licence. Next.”

    “Hi. We are here to get married.”

    “Names?”

    “John Smith, Jane James, Robert Green, and June Johnson.”

    “Who wants to marry whom?”

    “We all want to marry each other.”

    “But there are four of you!”

    “That’s right. You see, we’re all bisexual. I love Jane and Robert, Jane loves me and June, June loves Robert and Jane, and Robert loves June and me. All of us getting married together is the only way that we can express our sexual preferences in a marital relationship.”

    “But we’ve only been granting licences to gay and lesbian couples.”

    “So you’re discriminating against bisexuals!”

    “No, it’s just that, well, the traditional idea of marriage is that it’s just for couples.”

    “Since when are you standing on tradition?”

    “Well, I mean, you have to draw the line somewhere.”

    “Who says? There’s no logical reason to limit marriage to couples. The more the better. Besides, we demand our rights! The politicians said there should be equal protection under the law. Give us a marriage licence!”

    “All right, all right. Next.”

    “Hello, I’d like a marriage licence.”

    “In what names?”

    “David Deets.”

    “And the other man?”

    “That’s all. I want to marry myself.”

    “Marry yourself? What do you mean?”

    “Well, my psychiatrist says I have a dual personality, so I want to marry the two together. Maybe I can file a joint income-tax return……..”

    “That does it! I quit! You people are making a mockery of marriage!”

    We trust that gives you a smile on a Monday! Says it all, doesn’t it.

    Have a good week.

    Republican party has become just as corrupt as Democratics all blacks and christians need to becomes independents to send a messages to the political system. Gov. Christie is supporting gays because they are throwing money at him, just like they done to Obama. Gay is sin and I ain’t supporting sin.

    Stand firm my brothers & sisters in Christ! Speak up & speak out! Lift up your voices, like a trumpet! Thank you Ex Ministries for shedding the light of God on all of the mess; in house & out! Jesus is soon to come, so be encouraged! Lets continue to preach, teach & live the truth! True believers who take a stand are the only light that this dark world has; for now! (smile) Jesus Is Lord & King!!!!!!

    People who support the homosexual lifestyle are always saying “I think……” man’s thought is not the final authority on what’s right/wrong,God’s word is! Piers is obsessed with people’s opinion on this wicked agenda. EX ministries latest dvd talks abt how the homosexual agenda has been in motion for YEARS and how the elite have been conditioning the publics’ mind to accept it. If you’re at least 40 you can remember a time when being gay was shameful and you definitely didn’t see 2 men on tv as a couple. Now it’s the “in” thing to be. The devil is a lie! If you know what the word says, you know what to do!

    it just keeps getting worse. Surprised? No definitely not. However, it still makes me sad. Why are these people with this homosexual spirit trying so hard? 1. Spirit of the antichrist. 2. They are so miserable with their own lives, they want every body else to be miserable with them. It is sad that these people can not find peace. If they would only look to Jesus. He will give them peace that would surpass all understanding. They are working so hard to obtain something that will never happen. God has provided all of us with a precious gift…and he is there for the taking. Homosexuals think that receiving affirmation from man is going to change how they feel about themselves. They are in for a rude awakening. I don’t care how many folks they get on their sides or how many man laws is passed. They will still be in a sad disgusting state as long as they embrace that spirit. Because the wages of sin is death. There is no getting around that.

  12. Sean & Sheila

    What about the pastors and parents who counsel children and the youth of their congregation from the Word of God that homosexuality is wrong and is a SIN? Will they compromise and stop counseling them for the sake of not being persecuted? Will we see more of Judas in the church betraying Christ to please the wicked? How many cowards who worship God with their lips will be forced to “COME OUT OF THE CLOSET” under severe persecution and take the allegiance with the wicked?

    My mind goes back to the month of June of this year when I kept listening to the books of James, 1 & 2 Peter, 1, 2 & 3 John and Jude on my GoBible for one whole day, over and over again. I must have listen to it about 20 times or more, and kept hearing in my mind “listen to it again.” I didn’t understand why I was doing this, but after about a week I heard so softly while I was praying “A Great Persecution is Coming Across America” and I couldn’t stop crying because of the great number of “so-called Christians” who are going to betray Christ and side with the wicked to avoid being persecuted.

    So, as it is with everything wicked that’s going on in America, and hatred against those who speak the truth about sin, persecution is here and it is going to get worse in the coming days.

    ARE WE READY SAINTS OF GOD TO STAND FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS AND CONTEND FOR THE FAITH IN THE FACE OF PERSECUTION?

    He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. – Revelation 21:7-8

    Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find? – Proverbs 20:6

    This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. – Matthew 15:8-9

  13. Shalom

    Its an abomination as stated in lev 18:22 and for sure we are living in the last day. We need to stand as Christians and say no to what immoral laws government forces on us.

  14. dean hubbard

    this man needs help and he obivously dosent know the bible. he is condoning homosexuality and this is sin. the bible is clear on this. pray for chris christy to know the Lord.

  15. Jeane K

    He’s talking out of both sides here folks, as supposedly he still does not believe in homosexual marriages, but since he ‘caved’ on this I’d bet that’s coming next. God’s judgment falling over all the U.S. and the ‘world’.
