The Gift of “Homophobia”

I’m feeling generous this holiday season, and so I’ve decided to give a gift that is sure to be remembered for years to come. It is the gift of “Homophobia” and, as one of the world’s leading “Homophobes,” I want to share it with the entire world, by giving away free copies of my “Homophobic” textbook “Redeeming the Rainbow: A Christian Response to the ’Gay’ Agenda.” You can download it in PDF form without charge at http://www.defendthefamily.com/rtr/ . The file is small enough to send it on by email to your friends and family.

Of course, I’m being sarcastic about the term “homophobia” since that is defined as an anxiety disorder characterized by hate and fear of homosexuals. Who would want that?

What I’m actually offering is the Gift of Knowledge, grounded in an authentic Biblical world-view, earned in part through 20 years of faithful service to the cause of Christ, received in part through no effort of my own by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit -- all glory to God.

Most people don’t realize that “homophobia” is not an actual scientific term but was invented by “gay” marketing experts to manipulate public opinion and silence opponents. Here’s part of the section on homophobia from Redeeming the Rainbow, Chapter 8: Understanding “Gay-speak.”

“This term is probably the most outrageous invention of the “gay” sophists. In a way, it shouldn’t even be considered sophistry, since it lacks any hint of subtlety. In contrast to the cleverness of most other examples listed here, the illogic of homophobia is insultingly blatant.
Originally, homophobia was psychiatric jargon invented to describe patients’ fear of their own homosexual inclinations. “Gay” activists simply stole the term and redefined it as “hate and/or fear of homosexuals.”
As a rhetorical weapon, homophobia is unequaled. It serves first to define anyone who opposes the legitimization of homosexuality as a hate-filled bigot. The universal inclusion of all opponents as homophobic is of course not emphasized. Homosexual activists publicly associate this label with violent “gay bashers” and hateful fanatics. When they use the term they want people to think about the killers of Matthew Shepard, but in conventional practice they include every man, woman and child who believes homosexuality is abnormal or wrong. The way to expose this fact is to challenge the advocates of the “gay” position to state the difference between homophobia and non-homophobic opposition to homosexuality. They will reveal that they accept no opposition to their agenda as legitimate….
Secondly, the term defines opposition to homosexuality as a mental illness. “Gay” activists take special delight in this since it was scant decades ago that homosexuality was listed as a mental disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Psychiatry (the listing was removed by the political maneuvering of homosexual activists in a 1973 vote of the members of the American Psychiatric Association).
Thirdly, the term can be used as the semantic equivalent of “racist,” helping the “gay” movement further indoctrinate the public with the notion that opposition to homosexuality is equivalent to prejudice against racial minorities.
Collectively, these strategic applications of the word “homophobia” serve to intimidate many opponents into silence. When any expression of opposition to homosexuality draws the accusation that one is a mentally-ill bigot equivalent to a racist, few people will venture public opposition.” P 113

Chapter 8 examines and exposes all of the trickery of “gayspeak,” and equips pro-family advocates to counter it. But that is only a small part of what this free textbook offers. Look at the Table of Contents:

Introduction: Why the Homosexual Agenda Should Concern Every Christian
Chapter 1: Pro-Family Answers to Common Questions About Homosexuality and the “Gay” Agenda
Chapter 2 Understanding Homosexuality Biblically
Chapter 3: The Homosexual War Against the American Church
Chapter 4: The Causes and Types of Homosexual Disorder
Chapter Five: The History, Goals & Strategy of the Homosexual Movement
Chapter Six: The Natural Family and the Culture of Life
Chapter Seven: The Pro-Family Argument in Non-Religious Terms
Chapter Eight: Understanding “Gayspeak”
Chapter 9: Not A Theocracy: A Christian-Stewarded Secular Society
Chapter 10: An Organizational Model for Pro-Family Activism
Chapter 11: Christianizing the Social Spheres
Chapter 12: Miscellaneous Articles, Essays
Chapter 13: Documentation of the Homosexual Agenda
Chapter 14: Documentation in Support of the Pro-Family Position

In these 235 pages I analyze and explain virtually every aspect of the homosexual issue from my perspective as a pastor, attorney, international human-rights consultant and 20 year veteran of the culture war with service in nearly 40 countries. And I offer it freely to whomever wants it. There are no strings attached. Naturally, I will not reject donations made to my ministry in response to my generosity, but that is entirely up to you. http://www.defendthefamily.com/help/donate.php (We also have a limited supply of professionally printed copies available for sale at www.defendthefamily.com.)

Take this PDF book as my free gift to you, and distribute it freely to whomever you choose. Print it out and give it away. Post it on your website. Send it to your email lists as an attachment. I am even willing to allow other pro-family organizations to have it printed for use as a fundraising premium to their donors. I will supply the print-ready document and cover with no strings attached. I want this book to have the widest possible distribution because it is the only textbook ever written to teach our side how to effectively oppose the homosexual agenda.

This morning, for example, I was reading a story on World Net Daily on the issue of “bullying,” which is of course just the latest Trojan Horse to advance the “gay” agenda in the public schools. As it happens, I have written an anti-bullying curriculum titled “From Diversity to Civility: Learning how to respect people as individuals --
without giving up the right to disagree with their behavior or beliefs.” It is published starting on Page 184 of the book. It is a short, simple, ready-to-use 5-part curriculum on bullying that would actually benefit the children who use it, and totally thwart the “gay” strategy. Take it and use it!

This is the most important book I have ever written, and I’ve crafted it to be the very best work of which I am capable. It is easy to read and use, but contains no fluff. It contains all of the most important insights and observations I have acquired on this issue during 20 years of front-lines activism.

In other times I might have been more possessive of this book, and more profit-minded. But our situation here in America and throughout Christian civilization is dire. The homosexual agenda must be stopped, and contributing toward that goal is more important to me than financial remuneration.

Please accept this book as my gift. Read it and use it to help advance our pro-family cause.

Merry Christmas,

Dr. Scott Lively
