No More Mr. Nice Christian

We have tried to be nice.

We have tried to inoffensively, softly, and almost apologetically present a nice, Christian message to our country.

For 50 years we have shrunken back from calling sin “sin,” in the hope that the culture will like us and see its need for Christ.

And 50 years later, our Christian niceness has left us with a country and culture that now celebrates the sins of gay marriage, abortion, and the selling of butchered baby body parts. Our Christian niceness has left us with a country that has turned brazenly against Christ.

So, since the U.S. Supreme Court’s June 26th decision to desecrate God’s sacred institution of marriage, I have been taking an action that is clearly not nice; something that may well offend even my Catholic/Christian brothers and sisters.

I have been walking the sides of Pittsburgh’s very busy McKnight Road with a sign that reads “Jesus Loves You” on one side and “Gay Marriage is Sin” on the other.

Because it is the Truth of the Word of God.

Because I want to see every gay person on the planet turn from the sin of gay sex, embrace Jesus, and go to heaven.

Because I don’t want our children to grow up in a culture that – everywhere – tells them that sin is not sin.

And because our country desperately needs a Christianity beyond our “Nice-Guy” Church.

Yes, we must love all people – ALL people – with the love of Christ. But love is not always nice. Sometimes, it must be tough. Even the love of Christ.

Jesus loves immensely. But He was not afraid to offend people with words like “[W]hoever does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.” (John 3:18b) And “[W]hoever denies me before others will be denied before the angels of God.” (Luke 12:9b)

That is tough love. And without it, our country has come to celebrate the notion that two men having sex with each other is as holy as God’s sacred institution of marriage.

We must love ALL people. But it is also time to stand up and fight boldly for our God, our country, our children, and the souls of those who are lost to the sins of gay sex and gay marriage. I will do it; whether I am joined by 100,000 Christian men and women or whether I am walking the highway all by myself.

So, I carry my “Jesus Loves You / Gay Marriage is Sin” sign.

Come on out and join me. We’ll have church right up and down the sides of McKnight Road!



Why it is NOT a Sin for Christians to Eat Shellfish

Regarding the “shellfish” and “mixed fiber” questions:

Christians are not required to follow the sacrificial and ceremonial rules of Leviticus because Jesus fulfilled those requirements, for all believers, with His perfect sacrifice for our sins at the Cross. Hebrews chapters 8-10 gives an excellent explanation of this.

Also, in Acts Chapter 15, the Apostles met to discuss the question of whether the sacrificial and ceremonial laws were still required to be kept. They decided that believers no longer needed to be circumcised and that the only foods from which they needed to abstain were those that had been devoted to idols, animals that had been strangled, and blood. They, however, did specifically state that believers must abstain from fornication.

In Acts Chapter 10, Peter was shown by God that He had made the previously prohibited foods acceptable.

1Timothy 4:2 speaks of abstinence from foods and states that “everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, provided it is received with thanksgiving; for it is sanctified by God’s word and by prayer.

The New Testament also makes it abundantly clear that #$%$ is sin.

“For this reason God gave them up to degrading passions. Their women exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural, and in the same also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.” (Romans 1: 26-27)

1Corinthians 6:9-10 states that Sodomites will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Jude 7 states, “[S]odom and Gomorrah . . . which . . . indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.”

And in Matthew 19: 4-5 Jesus defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman by quoting the same definition that is found in the first book of the Bible at Genesis 2: 21-24.

Roberto Clemente’s Value was Most Similar to . . . ?

Where does Roberto Clemente rank, in major league history, as a hitter and as an overall player? And to whom was he most similar?

Of the 82 players who had at least 10,000 career plate appearances, Clemente ranks 37th in both OPS and “weighted Runs Created Plus.”

Here is the statistical comparison between Clemente and the hitter to which he was most similar.

Batting Average:  Clemente .317  :  Comp.  .318

On-Base Percentage:  Clemente .359  :  Comp. 360

Slugging Percentage:  Clemente  .475  :  Comp. .477

OPS:  Clemente .834  :  Comp.  .837

weighted Runs Created Plus:  Clemente 129  :  Comp. 122

Isolated Power:  Clemente .158  :  Comp. .159

BB%:  Clemente  6.1%  :  Comp. 5.7%

K%:  Clemente  12.0 %  :  Comp.  12.3%

PA/HR:  Clemente  42.6  :  Comp. 37.8

wOBA:  Clemente  .365  :  Comp.  .366

BABIP:  Clemente  .343  :  Comp. .339

As a hitter, Roberto Clemente was nearly identical to Kirby Puckett.

Among the 82 players in MLB history who had at least 10,000 plate appearances, Clemente ranks 26th with an 80.6 career WAR.

As an overall player, Clemente’s total value was about the same as that of Chipper Jones. Clemente’s career WAR/600 Plate Appearances was 4.74. Jones’ was 4.78.

A Mad “Gay” Man Tried to Kill Me; But God Made it All a Blessing

A mad homosexual tried to run me over with his car, two days ago, as I was walking with my “Gay Marriage is Sin / Jesus Loves You” sign.

I was on the side of the road, where there is about three feet of space to walk. It’s plenty of room and I never walk out into the highway. I saw the driver coming directly at me, toward the side of the road. At first, I thought he was just trying to scare me – a couple others have done that – so I didn’t move. But this person kept coming. When he was just a few feet in front of me, I jumped instantly and landed on my feet in the grassy incline beside the road.

Now, let me tell you how God was all over this.

First: I was amazed at the leap I made. It was as if I was 35 years old and not my current 53. No pain. I just sprang up instantly and landed softly and gracefully with both feet touching down at the same time. No stumbling. Didn’t break stride. I just kept walking.

Second: I just kept walking! That is not my natural reaction to somebody trying to kill me. My natural reaction would have been to drop the sign, turn, and run ragingly after the car until I caught the man in the parking lot or at the next red light and made him shit his pants. But I just kept walking – calmly – and holding the sign in front of me so more drivers could see it. I didn’t even turn around to look at the car.

Before going out on my walks, I pray for God to send his angels to surround me. And I’m not asking for some fat, fairy-like Cupid. I say, “God, send your mighty warrior angels – 6-feet-9 inches tall with battering rams for wings – to surround me and lead me and encourage me and fight for me and protect me and keep me calm. And God sent them and they did their job!

A mighty warrior angel lifted me up off of the side of the road when that mad homosexual tried to run me down. A mighty warrior angel set my 53-year-old bones down gracefully on the side of the road and kept me walking. And a mighty warrior angel kept me calm. I could not have done that on my own. No chance. I have a vicious, raging temper and my natural reaction would have been to use my 6-feet-4-inches and 225 pounds to catch and batter the person who tried to run me down. But I was completely calm and just kept walking, didn’t even turn around. That was God’s doing. Not mine.

I also pray some scriptures before I talk my walk, such as: “God, when people yell at me, give me the finger, or curse at me, give me the ‘Gentle response that turns away wrath’.” (Proverbs 15:1) “God make me quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry.” (James 1:19)

Now, you tell me how a man with a temper so vicious that it has caused him to lose jobs and be hospitalized for bipolar disorder was able to stay calm after somebody tried to run him down with a car moving at 40 miles per hour. Answer: God.

And that’s not all that God did in this incident.

I wasn’t going to let the mad homosexual scare me out of carrying the sign that I know God has called me to carry. But I also wasn’t going to be an idiot about it. I knew that I needed to take some precautions. So, when I went out with the sign yesterday – on the same highway – I made a change. Instead of walking along the side of the road for 2 miles. I went to a spot in front of an abandoned lot and stood behind the curb and directly in front of a metal shelter at a bus stop. If somebody tries to run his car at me there, he’s going to hit the curb, miss me, and total his vehicle as it hits the metal shelter.

So, where was God in my decision to stand in front of that shelter? Well, if it hadn’t been for the mad homosexual who tried to kill me, I would have been walking the road yesterday, instead of standing in front of the shelter. And, because I was standing where I was, a young man named Nathanael stopped in the parking lot beside me, walked calmly over to me, and thanked me for carrying the sign and said, “Somebody needs to be saying this!” He said that he wants to join me on the side of the road and that he has a friend who is a printer and can make more signs. I told him to bring along more people. And he knows people who will join us – he volunteers his time to stand in front of an abortion clinic and try to turn women away from that evil and show them that they have other options.

I have prayed that God would send more men out to deliver His “Gay Marriage is Sin / Jesus Loves You” message.

The opposition to God’s message will cause God’s message to spread.

If that mad homosexual had not tried to kill me, I would not have been standing at the bus stop. I would have been walking up and down the road and Nathanael may not have seen me. The mad homosexual made it easy for Nathanael to find me, park his car, and have a conversation with me that is going to bring more people out on God’s Highway.

Gay Sex versus Bestiality

The supporters of gay pseudo-marriage cannot explain why they believe that gay sex is moral and good, but bestiality is immoral and bad. And the reason that they can’t explain that difference is that they have no firm basis for their moral beliefs.

If Whoopi, Oprah, and Matt Lauer started an aggressive campaign promoting bestiality – complete with testimonials from real animal “lovers” – sooner or later, the gay “marriage” supporters would be convinced that bestiality is a good thing; as long as it makes both the person and the animal happy.

We, Christians, however, will never change our minds regarding either gay sex or bestiality – because our moral beliefs are based on the solid foundation of the undeniable, infallible, and never-changing Word of the One and Only Eternal God, which states:

“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination. You shall not have sexual relations with any animal and defile yourself with it, nor shall any woman give herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it: it is perversion.” (Leviticus 18:22-23)

If a person is born with a strong sexual attraction and desire for chimpanzees – which he cannot change – is it moral and good for him to have sex with willing chimpanzees; as long as it makes both him and the chimp happy? The Word of God says, “No!” What do the supporters of gay pseudo-marriage say; and why?

There are Gay People in Heaven

I want gay people to go to heaven. And they can – and do!

But they must to do it God’s way.

Admit the sin, accept Christ, & receive his power to turn away from the grave sin of gay sex. He will do it. He loves gay people and wants to spend eternity in heaven with them. But they MUST do it HIS way. He is the ONLY way.

Who else would die a gruesome death just to pay the penalty you owe for your sins, so you don’t have to? Only Jesus. And He had no penalty of His own to pay. He was COMPLETELY without sin. He NEVER sinned, and yet He loved gay people enough to go to the Cross and pay the penalty for their abominable sin – because He wants them in heaven. But they MUST do it HIS WAY. Admit the Sin, Accept Christ as Lord and Savior, and receive His power to live an amazingly joy-filled life – His power to turn from the sin.

“The joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10


Gays and their liberal allies want to scare you into remaining silent about the sins of gay sex and gay marriage. Don’t let them do it!

They cannot harm you. You are on God’s side.

They know deep down that their sexual behavior is a grave sin. Otherwise, they wouldn’t get so angry and insulting when we show them the Word of God. It convicts them in their very souls.

Let us pray that conviction leads them to embrace Christ and turn from the sin of gay sex.

Pedro’s .796 OPS Looks Pretty Good, But . . .

Pedro Alvarez is now hitting .243/.282/.514 — .796 OPS. But he has done little more than hit 3 home runs in the first 11 games of the season and the underlying indications are not good.

Alvarez’s K rate is 30.8%. He has walked in just 5.1% of his plate appearances. His Line Drive percentage is a paltry 4.2. And 70.8% of his batted balls have been grounders.
