Is this behavior Jesus would bless?

On Monday, January 7, pro-abortion and openly homosexual legislators were “blessed” at an “interfaith prayer service” at the Catholic Cathedral in Sacramento. See the news

The flyer distributed to state legislator offices read:

On the occasion of the Convening of the 2013-2015 California State Legislature, Speaker John A. Perez invites you to attend an Interfaith Prayer Service/Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament 1017 11th Street, Sacramento CA 95814/Sponsored by: The Interfaith Council of, Sacramento/Hosted by: Bishop Jaime Soto, Diocese of Sacramento (bold added for emphasis)

This event — a “spiritual” photo op for pro-abortion, homosexual activists-legislators such as John A. Perez, Tom Ammiano, Toni Atkins — hosted by Bishop Jaime Soto is especially shocking given the Catholic Church’s pro-life principles and position of marriage licenses only for one man and one woman.

These Biblical values on life and family are openly opposed by homosexual activist Assembly Speaker John A. Perez and virtually all of his fellow Democrat legislators, who now comprise a commanding two-thirds of the Assembly and state Senate.

This clash of values should not come as a surprise to the Catholic bishop, who claims to be strongly pro-life. But three years ago, he hosted a similar “interfaith service” honoring the pro-abortion, homosexual activist Speaker, in a ceremony that included a homosexual “rabbi.” As Perez explained to homosexual media in 2010:

“We did an inter-faith religious service in the morning at 8 a.m. up the street at the Catholic Cathedral. And it was a broad cross-section of the faith community. The final two people to speak were the Bishop of the Catholic Church, Jaime Soto, who I have tremendous respect for even though we disagree on a lot of issues, and Rabbi Denise Eger who’s the rabbi at Kol Ami in West Hollywood and she’s also president of the Board of Rabbis.

“And we arranged for Denise to be the person who gave a blessing over the Legislators. So at the end of the service, the Bishop asked for all the Legislators to remain standing and Rabbi Eger came forward and recited one of the oldest blessings in the Old Testament and blessed all the members of the Legislature. And the power of having this lesbian rabbi be there as the moral authority who was blessing all of us was really an amazing moment.”

Can the Catholic bishop possibly not know what he’s promoting? In addition to the evidence at the State Capitol, in the media, and in front of his own eyes and ears, the California Democratic Party platform is officially pro-abortion, pro-euthanasia, and pro-homosexual-“marriages.” (See these platform sections: “Women” for abortion on demand, “Death with Dignity” for euthanasia promotion, and “Equality of Opportunity” for homosexual “marriages.”)

Don’t think this is only happening in Catholic circles. Last year, an openly homosexual city councilman and activist was given the Sunday morning platform to speak at one of the largest evangelical Christian churches in San Diego. And the founder of the Biblically-conservative Calvary Chapels permits his liberal pastor son, who supports homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality, to be the guest co-host of his “Pastor’s Perspective” radio program. This is despite what God’s word says about these unnatural and unhealthy behaviors.

So, is the Church leading the culture or the culture leading the Church? At this juncture in California history, the answer is obvious. What to do? All who are loyal to God’s word and who have the testimony of Jesus Christ must get out of their church buildings and into the culture to boldly and clearly promote and apply God’s Truth. Either light or darkness will reign, and the choice is yours.

For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?
1 Peter 4:17 NKJV
