A sense of hometown pride always rushes over me when I hear that Indy has been chosen as a test market for some new cola or variation of fast food. I know it’s corny, but I can’t help it. I’m perplexed and embarrassed to know that Indianapolis was chosen as the test market for the Would Jesus Discriminate? campaign.
This campaign has been going on for awhile, but I’ve been trying to ignore it. Now it’s in my face. When evangelicals get in my face, I have a tendency to contort my face and roll my eyes. It doesn’t matter whether said evangelicals are straight or gay.
I’ve been trying to figure out the players on this thing for awhile. This news release from the gay mother church lays it out for me. Apparently, this campaign is part of the plans for world domination by the Metropolitan Community Church. I haven’t dug into their funding sources yet, because I’m not sure I want to know. Take that back, I know that part of their funding source include the congregants at the gay mother church’s local instance, Jesus MCC.
A big player in this is Jeff Miner, also affectionately known as Pastor Jeff. Mr. Miner has written a book on homosexuality and the bible, which is heavily promoted during the campaign. It appears to me that the campaign was designed to support the book. Mr. Miner is the minister at Jesus MCC, which partially explains why they chose Indy as their “ground zero” (their description, not mine).
Like I said in my previous post on this topic, I hope that the church’s congregants have given this some thought. They’re being used, and that’s OK so long as they all know it. I’ve been used by the gay agenda. I know what it’s like, especially when you change your mind.
And lest anyone accuse me of not giving these folks a chance, I listened to one of Mr. Miner’s Sunday presentations on the Jesus MCC Web site. It’s about fear.
