    Obama’s Christian Appointee to Faith-Based Program Says New Testament Teaching on Homosexuality Is ‘Not True’

    Wednesday, April 08, 2009
    By Fred Lucas, Staff Writer


    President Barack Obama (AP Photo) (CNSNews.com) – President Obama has named to his faith-based advisory council a self-professed Christian who holds that the New Testament's teaching that homosexual behavior is unnatural and wrong--which is found in St. Paul's letter to the Romans--“is not true."

    The appointee, Harry Knox, has also said that Obama's decision to invite the Rev. Rick Warren to say a prayer at the Inauguration "tainted" the ceremony and that Pope Benedict XVI is a "discredited leader."

    Harry Knox, a professed gay Christian who is director of the religion and faith program at the Human Rights Campaign, a homosexual rights group, was named to President Obama's Advisory Council on Faith Based and Neighborhood Partnerships on Monday. The advisory council gives federal grants to faith-based organizations.

    Persecution for standing on biblical principles is without a doubt on the way.

    He's a "gay Christian"? I don't think so. From what he's said, he's far from the second part of that label. But that's nothing new. There have been many before and there will be many in the future. Unfortunately.

    Obama's pick of "Christians" to serve on committees is interesting and instructive.

    Oh good grief, I'm sure this is no coincidence, he chooses a 'christian' who believes the word of God is a lie. Pretty soon anyone who believes the bible will be persecuted, as more and more speak out and tell people what they want to hear, makes the rest of us who really believe the bible look like enemies, idoits, and crazy people.

    2 Peter 2

    The Rise of False Prophets

    1But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.

    I agree, HE will be persecuted if he is really saved. He has judgment waiting for him if he is not. I only question his salvation because of his desire to keep living in sin. I do question when one changes the Word of God so it complies with their lifestyle instead of changing their lifestyle so it complies with the Word of God.
