What Comes to Mind When You Look at this Picture?

by Steve Ray on February 2, 2011

IMG_5020I think I know what came to your mind, but it is NOT what you thought!

This was taken when I was running along Juhu Beach in Mumbai India. This is a common scene in India and much of the world. It is two men walking with arms around each other’s shoulder. You often see men holding hands — the same with women, both young and old.

Are these two men homosexuals? That is what first comes to the American mind. That is because our country and the Western World is messed up.

These men are not homosexual and that idea would stun or disgust them. These men are friends and it is common among male friends to show affection. For women it is the same.

This culture here in India — and the Arab world and many other countries — is MUCH more healthy than that of America and the skewed Western World. In the West men are afraid to be friends with other men. We are afraid to show affection, to touch or get too close lest we be considered gay. How sick is that?

gayBefore the homosexual agenda forced its perversion into our lives, men were not afraid to be friends or show affection with other men (or women with women). This immoral behavior and movement has hurt relationships, friendships and the way we think of each other.

Frankly I despise the homosexual agenda, not only because of the perversion and aberration it is, but because it is forced on us and has tainted and ruined many good things in our culture. It has pervaded our country like a cancer.

One thing destroyed was a good word — GAY — which used to mean “happy and carefree” but now means a perverted and ungodly lifestyle being pushed down our throats.

Check out these passages of Scripture. Just hover your cursor over the references — Lev. 18:22; 20:13; Rom. 1:26–27; 1 Cor. 6:9; 1 Tim. 1:10).

More on gays tomorrow.

I remember well during my two years as a missionary in Jerusalem having good local friends locking their arms with mine while walking. I knew and understood the custom, but I never really got used to it. :)

No wonder… some people picture Christ or poke fun at him as being Gay.. coz he had 12 important male friends… No wonder.. when the term kiss is used esp in the controversial gospels, (eg: Thomas, Peter, Philip etc…) between Jesus and any other character esp Mary Magdalene, people can only think of a passionate kiss between lovers.

You picked that second picture because….? That just groups the whole gay community into one stereotype.

Yeah, I totally agree.

I noticed the same when I was travelling in Morocco, and when I came back to my country (Chile), I had the surprise, talking with a group of people that had been in arabic countries too, that they commented “arabs are kinda gay” or “there are lots of homosexual arabs, they hold hands” and I felt the same pity, what have the homos done to our culture!

Personally I think that this matter has an even worse consecuence: people feeling a natural need to show affection to friends of their same sex -including physical-, confuse themselves and think that that feeling is gay, so that they may be gay, and sometimes they end behaving homosexual because of self-tagging themselves, or at least confused.
