Advertising humanism/Supporting sodomy.__courtesy Rev Ivan Foster and The Burning Bush.

“Advertising Humanism or Aiding Sodomy — which is worse”

In an article in the “Belfast Telegraph” of 17th January ’09, the

following appeared:

“Christian groups have been urged by a senior DUP politician to

launch a counter-strike to the “There is Probably No God” bus

advertising campaign. Gregory Campbell wants alternative adverts

that add: “But What If There Is?” in response to the British

Humanist Association’s (BHA) posters, which were launched

in London and will be used across the UK.”

Every Christian who reads the report will agree with such a call. However, Mr. Campbell is

a prominent member of the Democratic Unionist Party and will be well aware that his party

has been involved in the process whereby public funds were paid to sodomite organisations

here in Northern Ireland and used by them to promote their ungodly lifestyles, to the detriment

of public morality and the honour of God’s holy name.

It has been repeatedly denied that there is a link between the DUP and the funding of

sodomites, especially during the time when Dr Ian Paisley was First Minister in the powersharing

executive.

But the present First Minister, Mr. Peter Robinson made the matter very clear. An interview

with Mr. Peter Robinson was published in the East Belfast Community Telegraph and reproduced

in The Newsletter of July 26th, 2008. In the article the following was contained in a

statement: “And despite his department being responsible for administering funding to gay

rights groups . . . . ” It is clear that the East Belfast Community Telegraph understands

that Mr. Robinson acknowledges that his department is “responsible for administering

funding to gay rights groups.”

RECORD OF FUNDING

The OFMDFM has indeed been responsible for such funding throughout the life of the present

Stormont Executive. A letter from the OFMDFM dated 23rd July 2008 gave the following

information on the record of payments made during the life of the Executive.

July 07 £50,000, February 08, £50,000. Final payment, before end of March 2009. Total

payments to the sodomite organisations, £230,000, £180,000 of which was made during

the life of the Executive. One payment of £50,000 was made just before the inauguration

of the present Executive.

NO ATTEMPTS MADE TO HINDER FUNDING

In a letter from the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister, dated 24th November

2008, the following was stat

Freedom of Information Act 2000

I refer to your request for information about “any attempt by any Minister, civil servant or

Special Adviser to frustrate these (CoSO) payments”. I am writing to confirm that OFMDFM

has now completed its search for this information and have established that the Department

does not hold information relevant to your request, as no attempts were made to

frustrate these payments.

I would like to apologise for the delay in providing you with this response.

Payments were made by the Executive and NO ATTEMPT WAS MADE BY ANY “MINISTER,

CIVIL SERVANT OR SPECIAL ADVISOR TO FRUSTRATE THESE PAYMENTS.” No DUP member

has publicly challenged this statement by the OFMDFM.

In the light of this, for Mr. Campbell to protest against the humanists advertising on the

sides of buses while he is a leading member of the Executive which paid out funds to sodomite

organisations, brings upon his head the condemnation found in the words of the Lord

Jesus in Matthew 7:2-4.

“For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it

shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s

eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy

brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own

eye?”

Sadly, there are those who seem to think that we may bury our heads in the sand regarding

our own sin and, without offence to God, condemn sin in others. We cannot condemn

others for sin while we are contaminated by sin, sometimes even worse sins than those we

are condemning. We must first cast out the beam out of our own eye; and then shall we

see clearly to cast out the mote out of our brother’s eye. (verse 5).

There is a lesson here for us all, especially the Free Presbyterian Church. We cannot cry

out against sin while we tolerate sin, denying its existence, vainly covering it over with feeble

excuses and deceitful semantics, all the time seeking to place the blame for the sin on

those who rightly drew attention to it.

May God bring us back to the days of our integrity when we could look the world in the eye

when we challenged its wickedness. As it is today, the protests of the Free Presbyterian

Church are all too often open to undeniable counter charges of hypocrisy.

Ivan Foster.
