A Christian actress was given the pink slip for this shocking reason

78

Hollywood’s war against Christians just escalated.

So-called “tolerant” Leftists are becoming increasingly hostile toward devout Christians.

Now, one Christian actress was fired for a shocking reason.

British stage actress Seyi Omooba got the role of a lifetime when she was casted in a London production of Alice Walker’s “The Color Purple.”

However, Omooba, a devout Christian, never got the chance to play her dream role because she was fired for posting a Bible quote on her Facebook page back in 2014.

Omooba pointed to 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 for God’s Word on homosexuality.

Aaron Lee Lambert, a cast member of the London production of “Hamilton,” dug up Omooba’s five-year-old post as soon as she was cast.

From the Daily Mail:

In a discussion about homosexuality, she had written: “It is clearly evident in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 what the Bible says on this matter. I do not believe you can be born gay and I do not believe homosexuality is right”
. . .
(Lambert) asked in his tweet: ‘Do you still stand by this post? Or are you happy to remain a hypocrite? Seeing as you’ve now been announced to be playing an LGBTQ character, I think you owe your LGBTQ peers an explanation. Immediately.’

The next morning, her agent rang. “I was told not to speak to the media and to keep my head down,” she recalls.

“Later, I was urged by the theatre and my agency to not only retract my post but apologise for what it said.

“I really wanted the role but what they wanted me to do was completely against my faith. I did not want to lie just to keep a job.”

She was dropped from the starring role and dumped by her agents. She has since contacted six agents who had once been eager to sign her up. Only one responded, describing her as “talented but misguided” and brainwashed by her faith.

Omooba is now preparing to sue the theatre and her former agents for breach of contract.

What happened to Omooba just goes to show how intolerant Leftists are.

Not only that, they wait like jackals to pounce once people enjoy any success.

The Left doesn’t condone Christians actually maintaining Christian beliefs.

This is what decades of liberal propaganda have done to the culture.

Do you think Omooba’s five-year-old Facebook post quoting the Bible is a fireable offense?

Let us know in the comment section.

  1. The apostle Paul claims the risen Jesus told him three times, “…my grace is sufficient for thee…” and some “Christians” take these words not as grace to stop sinning but as a license to indulge in sin. And Paul warns that drunkards, thieves, idolaters, fornicators, homosexuals, etc. will not receive the kingdom of God and that some of his followers *were* these things, clearly indicating coming to Christ means giving these things up, giving up sinning altogether. (I Corinthians 6:9-11) The “Christians” I encounter revel in fornication and deride anyone not “getting it” as a real loser. If “three times” excuses fornication, it also excuses homosexuality, since Paul condemns both in the same verse. Are homosexuals “flaunting” their lifestyle as you suggest, or merely asking that, like fornication, it merely be accepted as the norm?

    • There is no such thing as a Christian homosexual, just like there is no such thing as a pro abortion Christian, or a progressive Christian. There is no place for compromise with God.
      Matthew 7:14; Narrow is the gate and difficult is the path that leads to salvation and only a FEW find it.
      Most people are going to HELL!

      • Steve I agree with you and your straight forward response.

        Omooba is another Christian being persecuted for her belief.

        The “culture” of today is no different than in past or future. It is the “sin culture” and is not new. The narrow way is exactly that, narrow. The beliefs and opinions of mankind cannot change what God “YAWEH” established at creation. This sin culture began in Genesis.

      • There are thousands of Churche that claim to be Christian. Where did Jesus claim to have founded Thousands of Churches? Does it make it right? No. God Told Moses Not to Worship him like the Pagans didIt is in Deuteronomy Chapter 11. Versus 28-32 says it best. You could prove us Wrong by taking a group of Men with you, and to sail to the Holly land. you will crash before you get there. Wear what they wore back then, you could not travel by Camal at night following that star. December 25 is considered the birthday of a pagan sun god by the name of Mithra. Easter was celebrated for over 1000 years before Jesus was born,The Origin of the Sabbath is at the end of Creation. Sunday Sabbath comes from the Roman sun god religion.

      • Yes, absolutely. If we listen to the mainstream media, they will have us thinking that we’re wrong and thst they’re right!!! Which is a lie , and you know who the king of lies is. There’s a particular women’s talk show on CBS that I do like. However, they not only condone homosexuality, they revel in it. They keep talking about MileyCyrus and how great and empowered she is. Not only is she an idiot, she has no morality or shame. She’s disgusting. Her husband left her. I guess he wasn’t happy with his wife going after and having sexual relationships with other women. That could put a damper on a marriage, ya think! If you’re NORMAL!!!!!! That is!!!! And PS, Marie Osmond is their new host and I’m very surprised at her. I thought she was conservative, Christian, etc. When these topics come up, she doesn’t really stick up for the conservative side. I’m disappointed in her not doing that.

      • Steve, I agree, the Bible says exactly what you said! The way is very narrow and today so many don’t seem to care at all. I do pray for their souls. God does not want anyone to go to hell, but they don’t care!

    • Vasu, you know nothing at all about Christians. You have no concept of what the Bible teaches. You have not applied what you read. Get back to us when you have come to Jesus and repented and accepted Him as the Lord of your life

    • You obviously dont understand the words. Sin, whether murder , adultery or homosexually is forgivable but not Condoned if you keep on doing it in defiance.!!

  2. Quoting the Bible is not a crime. Prayer is not a crime.

    Chanting the names of God is a universal religious practice.

    Dr. Harvey Cox, a liberal Protestant theologian at the Harvard Divinity School, observes:

    “Almost every religion I know of has formulae, prayers, chants or hymns, in which the repetition of sound, is used for a devotional purpose… But I think that these criticisms of chanting or repetition of prayers as somehow mentally destructive are frankly some of the most uninformed and ignorant of the criticisms I’ve come across.

    “These sorts of criticisms cannot possibly by made by people who know anything about the history of religions, unless they want to come right out and say that they’re against all religion, or all devotional practices, all prayer — which I think many of them are. At least they ought to be honest and not conceal their personal bias under allegedly scientific language.”

    Every genuine religious tradition in the world teaches that God’s names are holy and meant to be glorified. The Bible contains numerous references to glorifying God and His holy name. (Exodus 15:3; Deuteronomy 32:2-3; I Chronicles 16:8-36; Psalms 29:2, 47:1, 86:11, 91:14, 96:1-3, 97:12, 98:4-6, 113:3, 116:1-17, 146:1, 148:1-5, 13)

    The Lord and His name are praised throughout the Psalms. “I will praise the name of God with a song,” says King David. (Psalm 69:30) In other places we read: “All nations whom Thou hast made shall come and worship before Thee, O Lord: and shall glorify Thy name.” (Psalm 86:9)

    “O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon His name; make known His deeds among the people. Sing unto Him, sing psalms unto Him: talk ye of all His wondrous works. Glory ye in His holy name.”

    (Psalm 105:1-4)

    “…Praise Him with the timbrel and the dance; praise Him upon the loud cymbals.”

    (Psalm 150:4-5)

    Israel Baal Shem Tov (1699-1761), the great Jewish mystic, founded Hasidism, a popular pietist movement within Judaism, in which members dance and chant in glorification of God. The Hasidism were especially influenced by verses in Psalms calling for the joyful worship of the Lord through song. (Psalms 100:1,2, 104:33)

    According to The Jewish Almanac: “In the Jewish tradition the name actually partakes of the essence of God. Thus, knowledge of the name is a vehicle to God, a conveyor of divine energy, an interface between the Infinite and the finite… It is curious that a tradition that places such a strong emphasis on the One God possesses such a large number of names for the divine. Each name, however, actually represents a different quality or aspect of God.”

    When teaching his disciples how to pray, Jesus Christ glorified God’s holy name: “Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name.” (Matthew 6:9) Jesus also approved of his disciples’ singing joyfully in praise of God. (Luke 19:36-40) Of his own name, Jesus said: “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, I am there with them.” (Matthew 18:20)

    The apostle Paul told his gentile followers to speak to one another in psalms and hymns, to sing heartily and make music to the Lord. Ephesians 5:19) He further taught them to instruct and admonish one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. (Colossians 3:16)

    Paul wrote to his gentile congregation in Rome: “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13) According to the historian Eusebius, there was “one common consent in chanting forth the praises of God,” in the early Christian churches.

    The Gregorian chants, popularized in the sixth century by Pope Gregory and later by works like Handel’s masterpiece the Messiah, with its resounding choruses of “hallelujah” (which means “praised be the name of God” in Hebrew), are still performed and appreciated all over the world.

    In addition to praising the Lord’s name and glories through music, song, and dance, there has also emerged the practice of meditating upon God by chanting upon beads of prayer.

    St. John Chrysostom recommended the “prayerful invocation of the name of God,” which he said should be “uninterrupted.”

    Reverend Norman Moorhouse of the Church of England writes:

    “The rosary is chiefly associated with Roman Catholics, but many members of the Church of England also use it. And there are many Russian orthodox Christians who chant the name of Jesus several hundred or thousand times every day…

    “In the Book of Psalms there are biddings to praise the name of the Lord and to sing…I remember that during the Second World War, I was in Greece for Easter, and it was a wonderful thing to hear all the people chanting and singing ‘Christos anesethe’—Christ is risen.”

    The repetition of the Jesus prayer (“Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me”) became a regular practice among members of the Eastern Church. In The Way of a Pilgrim, a Russian monk describes this form of meditation:

    “The continuous interior prayer of Jesus is a constant, uninterrupted calling upon the divine name of Jesus with the lips, in the spirit, in the heart… One who accustoms himself to this appeal experiences… so deep a consolation and so great a need to offer the prayer always, that he can no longer live without it.”

    “Perhaps you’ve heard about Hesychasm, a technique of mantra meditation that was employed by Christians as far back as the third century after Christ,” says the Reverend Alvin Hart, an Episcopal priest in New York. “The method was the simple chanting of ‘the Jesus prayer,’ which runs like this: ‘Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy upon me.’ I personally have found great comfort in this mantra.”

    According to Reverend Hart, “Although it was recently popularized by the New Age movement…’the Jesus Prayer’ has a long and venerable tradition in the Philokalia, an important book on Christian mysticism. The word Philokalia literally means ‘the love of spiritual beauty,’ and I can say that the book definitely brings its readers to that level of appreciation…

    “The Philokalia also emphasizes the importance of accepting a spiritual master. The Greek words used are starets and geront, but they basically mean the same thing. The result of chanting under a proper master is theosis, or the ‘respiritualization of the personality.’”

    Reverend Hart says, “When we call on God — and we should learn how to do this at every moment, even in the midst of our day-to-day work — we should be conscious of Him, and then our prayer will have deeper effects, deeper meaning. This, I know, is the basic idea of Krishna Consciousness. In the Christian tradition, too, we are told to ALWAYS pray ceaselessly. This is a biblical command. (I Thessalonians 5:17)

    “In a sense, this could also be considered the heart of the Christian process as well. For instance, in the Latin Mass, before the Gospel is read, there is a prayer spoken by the priest: dominus sit in corde meo et in labiis meis, which means, ‘May the Lord be in my heart and on my lips.’ What better way is there to have God on one’s lips than by chanting the holy name? Therefore, the Psalms tell us that from ‘the rising of the sun to its setting’ the Lord’s name is to be praised. And Paul echoes this idea by telling us that ‘whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.’ (Romans 10:13)”

    Dr. Klaus Klostermaier notes that meditation and prayer are “important in the Christian tradition, at least for certain sects and monastic orders… In the Philokalia and in the path recommended by The Pilgrim, you find the…’Jesus Prayer,’ which may be unknown to most Christians today, but was very powerful in its time.

    “So people are aware of the potency of ‘the name’ and the importance of focusing on it as a mantra… But it must be done with devotion… The idea of logos, or ‘the Word,’ has elaborate theological meaning that is intimately tied to the nature of Jesus and, indeed, to the nature of God.”

    “All the basic principles of bhakti yoga are richly exemplified in Christianity,” writes Dr. Houston Smith in The Religions of Man. Dr. Smith is a Professor of Philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His 1958 book is used as a standard text in major universities. Dr. Smith explains the fundamental principle of bhakti or devotion:

    “All we have to do in this yoga is to love God dearly — not just say we love Him but love Him in fact, love Him only (loving other things because of Him), and love Him for no ulterior reason (even from the desire for liberation) but for love’s sake alone…

    “…every strengthening of our affections toward God will weaken the world’s grip. The saint may, indeed will, love the world far more than the addict, but he will love it in a very different way, seeing in it the reflected glory of the God he adores.

    “How is this love of God to be developed?” asks Dr. Smith. “Japa is the practice of repeating the names of God. It finds a close Christian parallel in one of the classics of Russian Orthodoxy, The Way of a Pilgrim. This book is the story of an unnamed peasant whose first concern is to fulfill the biblical injunction to ‘Pray without ceasing.’

    “He wanders through Russia and Siberia with a knapsack of dried bread for food and the charity of men for shelter, consulting many authorities only to come away empty-hearted until… he meets a holy man who teaches him ‘a constant, uninterrupted calling upon the divine Name of Jesus with the lips, in the spirit, in the heart… at all times, in all places, even during sleep.’

    “The peasant’s teacher trains him until he can repeat the name of Jesus more than 12,000 times a day without strain. ‘This frequent service of the lips imperceptibly becomes a genuine appeal of the heart.’ The prayer becomes a constant warming presence within him… a ‘bubbling joy.’ ‘Keep the name of the Lord spinning in the midst of all your activities’ is the Hindu statement of the same point.”

    In Islam, the names of God are held sacred and meditated upon. According to tradition, there are ninety-nine names of Allah, found inscribed upon monuments such as the Taj Mahal and on the walls of mosques. These names are chanted on an Islamic rosary, which consists of three sets of thirty-three beads.

    The Sanskrit literatures of ancient India are diverse and cover a vast body of knowledge. The one hundred eight principle Upanishads tend to focus primarily on spiritual wisdom, while the eighteen Puranas contain historical narrations from the distant past, when humans were pious, civilizations were more enlightened and the miraculous was ordinary. The Kali-santarana Upanishad emphasizes chanting:

    “Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna
    Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare
    Hare Rama, Hare Rama
    Rama Rama, Hare Hare”

    to counteract the ill effects of this present age of spiritual darkness, while the Brihan-naradiya Purana emphatically states thrice that there is no alternative for spiritual deliverance in this age other than chanting God’s holy names. Traditionally, the Lord is glorified congregationally, with drums, cymbals and dance, or He may be praised individually, in silent prayer, upon rosary beads.

    Dr. Guy Beck’s PhD thesis, Sonic Theology: Hinduism and the Soteriological Function of Sacred Sound examines the doctrine that the Word or divine sound can have a “salvific” effect. Examining the Vaishnava (worshippers of Lord Vishnu, or Krishna) practice of chanting God’s names upon beads of prayer, he observes: “…a work from the sixth century AD, entitled the Jayakhya-Samhita, contains… many early references to the practice of japa or silent prayer.

    “It says that there are three considerations in doing japa repetitions — employing the rosary (the akshamala), saying the words aloud (vachika) or repeating them in a low voice (upamshu). There are quite a few details in this text, garnered from early sources, and so a case can be made for a pre-Islamic, and even pre-Christian, use of beads or rosary in the Vaishnava tradition.”

    Because the Roman Catholics did not begin using rosary or japa beads until the era of St. Dominic, or the 12th century, Dr. Beck concludes, “the Vaishnavas were chanting japa from very early on.”

    Father Robert Stephens, a Catholic priest in Australia, considers Krishna “one of the many names of God.” He writes that he is “saddened at the narrowness and arrogance of many Christian fundamentalists;” “those who claim a monopoly on all truth or goodness;” “those who desperately cling only to external forms under the pretense of faith in God,” and “those who have turned their Sacred scriptures into mere weaponry against those who differ from themselves.”

    According to Father Stephens, we who engage in interreligious discussion “have firm support from the Catholic Church, especially the Second Vatican Council, and from such official bodies as the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, and the Dialogue Commission of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India.”

    Father Stephens observes that “Because spiritual riches belong to all, dialogue and sharing are not an optional extra in a pluralistic society. We cannot live in a fortress of one-eyed people.” Father Gerald O’Collins SJ, similarly, is of the opinion that the Bible does not necessarily provide authoritative answers to new questions which arise in the life of the Church, and that the Bible is not that kind of “norm for every problem and every situation.”

    Father Bede Griffiths says of Bhagavad-gita, “For a Christian, this is a wonderful confirmation of God’s love contained in the Gospel.” Meister Eckhart wrote: “When we say God is ‘eternal,’ we mean God is eternally young.” This is Krishna Consciousness. God is an eternal youth.

    Matthew Fox’s statement that “God and God’s Son are ultimately attractive and alluring because of their beauty” is also consistent with Vaishnavaism. The name “Krishna” means “the all attractive one.”

    Dr. Harvey Cox, a liberal Protestant theologian at the Harvard Divinity School, favorably compares Krishna Consciousness with Christianity:

    “You can see the obvious similarities. Here you have the idea of a personal God who becomes incarnate… revealing what God is about and eliciting a form of participation in the life of God.

    “I think a Christian will have some natural sensitivity to Krishna devotion… devotion of the heart, that is, pietistic Christianity… We noted several surprising similarities between what you might call Appalachian folk religion and Krishna Consciousness. Both religions put a big emphasis on joy, the spiritual joy of praising God…

    “…both traditions emphasize puritanical values and practice certain forms of asceticism such as no drinking, no smoking, no non-marital sex and no gambling… Both seem to put more emphasis on a future life or another world.”

    According to Dr. Cox, “You have to remember that if you had been there at the early Methodist frontier revivals here in America… you would have seen some very ecstatic behavior… jumping up and down and singing. This sort of ecstatic religious behavior is, of course, associated with religious devotion from time immemorial in virtually every culture. We happen to be living in a culture which is very restricted, unimaginative, and narrow in this regard.”

    The Sikh religion is a blend of Hinduism and Islam. The Sikhs emphasize the name of God, calling Him “Nama,” or “the Name.” Guru Nanak, the founder of the Sikh religion, prayed, “In the ambrosial hours of the morn I meditate on the grace of the true Name,” and says that he was instructed by God in a vision to “Go and repeat My Name, and cause others to do likewise.”

    Rosaries are used in Buddhism. Members of Japan’s largest Buddhist order, the Pure Land sect, practice repetition of the name of the compassionate Buddha (“namu amida butsu”). Founder, Shinran Shonin says, “The virtue of the Holy Name, the gift of him that is enlightened, is spread throughout the world.” Followers believe that through the name of Buddha a worshiper is liberated from repeated birth and death and joins the Buddha in the “Pure Land.”

    Religions all over the world teach that God’s names are holy and meant to be glorified. A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada’s humble requests to the confused and alienated American youth of the late 1960s are especially relevant today:

    “…don’t commit suicide. Take to chanting this Hare Krishna mantra, and all real knowledge will be revealed… We are not charging anything… No. It is open for everyone. Please take it… That is our request. We are begging you — don’t spoil your life. Please take this mantra and chant it wherever you like… chant, and you’ll feel ecstasy.”

    “…and you can develop (love of God) so simply. You just hallow the name of the Lord. Jesus says, ‘hallowed be Thy name, my Father.’ And we are also hallowing the name of the Lord. We don’t even demand you say ‘Krishna.’ You can say ‘Jehovah.’ You can say ‘Yahweh.’ You can chant the names of God…”

    –Srimad Bhagavatam lecture, 1972

    “If one has become a lover of God, naturally he will be detached from material enjoyment. Love of God and love of the material world cannot go together. Lord Jesus Christ never advised going for economic development, for industrial development. He sacrificed everything for God. That is one test — ‘Here is a lover of God.’ Lord Jesus Christ was punished. He was ordered, ‘Stop this preaching.’ But he did not. So that is love of God. He sacrificed everything.

    “The idea is that Lord Jesus Christ and his followers must both be, at least to some extent, at that point. That is the test. So we say that you follow any religious path. Which one doesn’t matter. We want to see whether you are a lover of God. That is our propaganda…

    “But Jesus Christ never said that he is God. He said ‘son of God.’ We have no objection to chanting the holy name of Jesus Christ. We are preaching, ‘Chant the holy name of God.’ If you haven’t got any name of God, then you can chant our conception of the name of God, Krishna. But we don’t say only Krishna…

    “And it is such a simple thing. They don’t have to go to a church or temple. It doesn’t matter if they are in hell or heaven. In any condition they can chant the holy name of God… There is no charge, there is no fee, there is no loss. If there is some gain, why not try for it?…

    “So what more do you want? Therefore let us cooperate. Don’t think that it is against Christianity or that it is sectarian. Let us cooperate fully. Jointly let us preach all over the world, ‘Chant the holy names of God.’ Let us join together. That should be the real purpose of devotees of God. My students are preaching love of God. Why should others be envious of them? We don’t say that you must chant Hare Krishna. If you have a name of God, chant it.”

    —Room conversation, London, August 14, 1971

    As to Jesus’ words: “When you pray do not repeat and repeat as the pagans do,” some Bible translations appear to be attacking chanting or praying in “vain repetition.”

    Was Jesus attacking the *method* of prayer (chanting/repeating) as being pagan, or rather the *mentality* behind the prayer?

    Matthew 6:7 suggests Jesus was attacking chanting/repeating, or praying “in vain repetition” as a pagan practice.

    However, Jesus goes on to say in Matthew 6:31-32 (in the very same chapter!): “Do not, then, be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What are we to wear?’ For on all these things pagans center their interest, while your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.”

    Jesus told his followers there is no need to pray to God for material blessings or even necessities. (Matthew 6:8, 31-33; Luke 12:29-30)

    The *pagans* concern themselves with these things.

    When Jesus taught his disciples how to pray, he began by teaching them to hallow God’s name, and to pray to do God’s will on earth as it is in heaven — to be a servant of God. (Matthew 6:9-13)

    This is the Hare Krishna mantra, which can roughly be translated as, “O Lord, please engage me in Your service.”

    Repetition helps keep the mind focused on God, rather than on worldly distractions.

    “Haribol” (“praise Hari!”) is the Sanskrit equivalent to “Hallelujah” (which means “praised be the name of God” in Hebrew).

    George Harrison explained his putting the chanting of Hare Krishna in his 1970 hit song, “My Sweet Lord”:

    “Well, first of all, ‘Hallelujah’ is a glorious expression the Christians have, but Hare Krishna has a mystical side to it. It’s more than just glorifying God; it’s asking to become His servant…

    “Although Christ in my mind is an absolute yogi, I think many Christian teachers today are misrepresenting Christ. They’re supposed to be representing Jesus, but they’re not doing it very well. They’re letting him down very badly, and that’s a big turn off.”

    The late Reverend Janet Regina Hyland (1933 – 2007), raised Catholic, but went on to become an evangelical minister, a vegan, and author of God’s Covenant with Animals (it’s available through People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA), wrote me on July 21, 2007:

    “I also received your paper on Krishna Consciousness and Christianity (Points of Similarity). Being familiar with Christian monasticism, I always saw many similarities between the two. When Catholics say the rosary beads, they are repeating the same prayers, over and over…

    “When I was at the Assembly of God Seminary, we would attend revival meetings at local and rural churches… ecstatic behavior pretty much defined the services.”

    • Vasu: Lets quote the bible: Leviticus 20.13. “God: If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
      Shlomo Amar Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem 2016: “Homosexuals are a cult of abomination. The Torah punishes it with death.”

  3. The reincarnationist position is that sexual orientation, like height or skin color, is determined by one’s karma from previous lives. Conversion therapy is psychologically damaging. A lovely devotee of Krishna here in the SF Bay Area, Lalita dasi (Leona Oster) is only 4′ 8″ tall, and she’s commented that it’s her karma in this life to be short. There’s no conversation therapy that could make her 5′ 4″, without damaging her body or killing her. Similarly, one’s skin color can’t be changed, either: bleaching a black person’s skin to appear white would only damage the individual.

    “Conversion” therapy only makes sense if you presume homosexuality, like fornication, is a choice. I Corinthians 6:9-11 says, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you.” I’ve never heard Christians cite “three times…” to excuse homosexuality nor abortion, but since Paul wrote that some of his followers *were* homosexuals, the implication is that they can be changed. Paul’s words in I Corinthians 6:9-11 indicate that coming to Christ means giving up fornication, too.

    Doesn’t “three times…” justify “choice” ? Can pro-choice Christians cite “three times…” to justify abortion? I’ve never heard conservative Christians cite “three times…” to excuse abortion, homosexuality, marijuana, or anything else they might find offensive. And Paul condemns fornication alongside homosexuality in the same verse (see above). It seems to me conservative Christians are selectively deciding which verses of Scripture they want to follow and which they want to ignore, so it’s impossible to have a serious theological conversation with them about animals and their rights. And we can’t end abortion and war until we first abolish the killing of animals. That’s the reincarnationist position, too.

    No one in the Krishna Consciousness movement, indeed, no true believer in karma and reincarnation can cooperate with meat-eating “pro-lifers” until they’re prepared to first abolish the killing of animals. And they don’t have to “convert” to our religion to do that. They can follow Christian vegetarians throughout history, they can follow Christian vegans today, or they can join a secular organization like People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Actually, I’d have more respect for them if they were to join PETA, since then they’d be strictly vegan, whereas Krishna devotees have yet to address the cow-killing of the dairy industry, all the while parroting Srila Prabhupada’s Bhagavad-gita purports that “slaughter is the way of the subhumans,” “animal-killing is prominent among the demoniac,” etc. This isn’t religion. It’s hypocrisy.

  4. How many of us straights think our sexual orientation (as opposed to “sexual preference”) is of our choosing? And that we would freely abandon it at whim, risking rejection, disease, or even death, just to satisfy some “wanton desire”?

    Throughout history, LGBT’s have found themselves oppressed, persecuted and treated as pariahs. My friend Greg (who first told me he was gay in September 1988) related to me in the early ’80s, that his former college roommate, James, at UCLA, once argued along these lines, saying, “Of course, we’re born gay. Do you think we would *choose* to be this way?”

    After what happened to Matthew Shepard (hate crimes against LGBTs), you’d think James’ words would give conservatives cause to wonder.

    • Nobody is born gay. People become gay from certain forms of child abuse and social issues when they’re young. If you were to take a survey, you would find a high percentage of LGBT people have had incidents of self mutilation and other deviant things in their past. Cutting, etc.
      Homosexuals need help and prayer – not acceptance of their illness.

        • Isn’t it possible that some homosexuals are born homosexual–meaning, that like people who are born with some sort of mental or physical, or both defect, so are those people born with the defect of homosexuality? Born with the defect of homosexuality does not of course make carrying out homosexual sexual acts not sinful. All defects have their own miseries to overcome.

          • I have a problem with the bible condemning homosexuality if people are born that way. How can that be true?
            The bible doesn’t condemn people for being born blind or deaf or handicapped or mentally challenged.

      • I disagree, I think some are born that way, not all, I believe some choose. How else do you explain a Rock Hudson type verses the efeminate Johnny Weir? I def think genetics is involved in some cases.

        • Here’s the problem with your thinking.
          If you believe in creation then homosexuality can’t be genetic because God would never condemn someone for something they’re born with.
          But if you believe in evolution then homosexuality can’t be genetic either because it would never have survived evolution. Obviously homos can reproduce.
          That’s how I see it.

        • The specific acts of penetration of an orifice other than the birth canal by the male member are condemned. That refers to behavior, which sexual orientation in and of itself is not. Instinct or even a theoretical error of instinct, perhaps neural pathology, is what relates to orientation. While it is possible for orientation to be influenced by genetics, there is no evidence of any particular genes that some humans may have and others may not, to that effect. (If there is a gene, then we all have it; in other words.) When people refer to “born that way”, it can mean that the onset of a condition occurring after conception and before birth, due to environmental factors including but perhaps not limited to hormonal exposure within the womb. The point is that people genuinely cannot control what they will or will not be aroused by, and in many cases, this is predicated upon something that has been with a person for as long as he or she can remember being alive.

          Seyi Omooba is alleged to have referenced a passage in the book of “Corinthians”, which in the ever-popular King James Version uses the word “effeminate” to describe one among several types of actor/doer (including the “covetous”) who shall not “inherit the kingdom of god” (likely meaning that they are not welcome in heaven). What does the word mean in the context of the passage, though? Seemingly the passage does not refer to females at all, so it might be fair to interpret the individual word as “effeminate males”, as corroborated with accompanying bit about “abusers of themselves with mankind”, which at least appears to be reference to a specific behavior. Interpretation would be a lot easier had simple words like “sodomite” and “catamite” been used for the translation of non-English bibles into English bibles. Of course, we would be wise not to ignore the fact that the King James Version of the bible is a translation of a translation of a translation of a translation, all carried out by human beings (who are not always moral and not always ethical, and never perfect) working with the few tools that they had available to them.

          In morality, there can be such things as wrongful thoughts. However, the concept of a thought crime goes against the American way, and the English way as well. Punishment of a wrongful thought that lacks any connection to a wrongful behavior is left up to god. We all ought to respect that.

    • No one is born homosexual. It is your choice and it is satan, the ruler of this world, that confuses and temps people. I have found that many have chosen that lifestyle because of rejection by the opposite sex, or sexual assault. However, these are of the DEVIL’S tools. And anyone that says, we are Born that way, is a fool. GOD gave you free will to choose. Therefore, blame yourself for the life you choose. Everything you say, you’ll have to answer to when you stand before GOD on judgement day. We all have that day coming. ALL. Where will you spend eternity after judgement?

    • God forbids homosexuality so He would NEVER create us that way. It is a sin like all other sin and ALL sin must be forgiven to enter into Heaven. You best worry about your own sins. You have the choice to follow Jesus to Heaven or satan to Hell. Choose wisely

    • No one should be fired for posting truth. And yet, Christians are. The speaks of the persecution of Christians in the last days. We are starting in the last days. Many have forgotten the book of Revelations. Read it. There are also predictions in the old and new testament. Those that are the children’s of Christ will see. Those that don’t believe will not see. You have free will to choose today, life or death.

      • You speak the truth Rick B.. There’s so much confusion in this world. And stupid celebrities like Lady Gaga, Madonna, etc. promote all of this immoral garbage. Their money and fame make vulnerable youth who don t have proper guidance listen to them instead of God. One thing that gets me is, they watch these horrible movies about evil and hell, but they think it’s just a movie. There’s a real place called hell, way worse than a movie!! If that weren’t so, why would Christ have died for us the way He did. It’s because he doesn’t want us to go there. I have 2 degrees and I struggle terribly. These celebrities have enough money to end world hunger, but I’d rather be me. I know the truth!! PS, by the end of this world, and that day will come no matter what, it’s not because of climate change!! There will be do much suffering to believers and nonbelievers alike, that every knee shall bend and every head shall bow before the throne of Christ’s kingdom. That day is a long way off for most of us, but it will come.

  5. No, I don’t think that Omooba’s five-year-old post quoting the Bible is offense. The Bible cannot be offensive. This left-wing media and educational institutions are becoming increasingly hostile, offensive and intolerant of the Christian religion.

    • I wonder what would’ve happened if she was Muslim! And everybody knows what their beliefs are on that subject and how they feel about the LBGTQ community do you think they would’ve brought that up on her about her beliefs if she was Muslim? And if so would they have asked her to apologize! You know the Muslim community would be up in arms over that !

  6. Supposedly” tolerant “Leftists??? That is ONE word that does not come to mind when describing the Leftists! Or the alphabet people for that matter.
    Omooba is an actress that WAS cast to PLAY a PART on stage. She does not owe ANYONE an apology. Especially to the alphabet people, or for being a Christian ! This hate for Christians is spreading like cancer around the world. But this was predicted in the bible, so it shouldn’t be such a surprise for us Christians. But I hope GOD will take mercy on us and allow this world to survive. A little while longer.
    I hope she holds true to her religious beliefs and wins her law suit. We all must stand up for our Christian faith and each other. GOD is watching….

  7. I thought this Vasu douchebag had died and gone to Hell. Oh well, one can still dream. The good news is that, eventually he/she/it, eventually will.

    • Iceman47; Vasu is a man. But him being a radical Leftist, they all are like cockroaches; one dies, ten show up to take their place. I’ve noticed this since I started posting on this Conservative website. More and more haters are showing up and spewing their hate and propaganda.
      I just wish Culture Watch would at the very least limit him, since they refuse to block him. Especially since he keeps posting the same drivel over and over again.
      Vasu being a Hindu, there is no doubt he will go to Hell. There he can bore the Devil for all eternity instead of us…

  8. My opinion is that it is more than “Lefties” hating the Christians, it is the Jews hating the Christians! The Jews want to dominate and control everything around them it seems, and will not rest, and participate equally with anyone not Jewish. They even have a name for people not Jewish that they use called goyim.
    This attitude of “we’re better” and seperatism, is why they are universally disliked all over the world.
    When everyone dislikes you, you are the problem, NOT everyone else.

  9. Maybe it’s time we boycott Hollywood in its ENTIRETY! Things have gotten WAY out of hand; this morning I saw a “subliminal” message show up on my TV show; a quick flash to vote for Michelle Obama, of all people.

  10. it is just wrong how the left can twist stupid things into stupid things and banish people. When they threaten curse slander everyone in the world and nothing never happens to anyone on the left. I’ve report the left for threats of murder and cursing at someone and they tell me it is fine what they posted. But if I do it because I am middle right they block me for 30 days sad this is happening. It’s time the world wakes up to what they are doing it is so sick what it has become.

  11. Once again, the Left accuses others of what they are doing. I refer to a theatrical agent saying, Seyi Omooba” was misguided and brainwashed by her faith.” Stand firm in Jesus Christ, Seyi Omooba!

  12. Please tell Ms. Omooba include not only her agent and the theater. But also to include that SOB from Hamilton in her suit. If it was not for him, she would not have lost the role that she really wanted to perform in.

  13. Why is someone with a different opinion such a threat? we are all different, the way we look , the way we talk, the way we live!!I truly don’t understand all this hate toward a different opinion, if your a secure person then a different opinion should not brother you! you may not like or agree, but that’s ok, life goes on!! For this lady to lost her chance to succeed is absolutely wrong! That would be like me firing a employee because I hate carrots and my employee loves them, brings them to work, it’s so dumb to me,

  14. No matter how hard the LBGT pushes their agenda their efforts will fail. It is not God’s design.
    I suggest she look at Christian production companies for work.

  15. If she truly believed what she posted, why would she even consider accepting such a role? One would think that as a Christian she would not wish/want to be involved in that production to begin with. God simply used the rabid left to do what she should of done, not portray that character. God has something better in store for her, if she would only listen and follow Him, and not just post about it.

    • I feel the same way about politicians. No true Christian would run for office, IMO.
      There is no commission in the New Testament for disciples and Christ followers to be part of any government.

  16. Those who deny God will join their master satan in Hell. It is high time for Hollywood (and San Francisco) to be destroyed as God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah,

  17. Hollywood does the work of the devil. I get sick of the anti Christian and especially anti Catholic sublimal messages. Do you ever notice that in violent movies, the really bad despicable and immorals wear crucifixes. Drug lord’s homes show a picture of Christ on the wall. Depiction of Catholicism is always based on the most negative views possible. In contrast, the good guys are mostly aetheist or agnostic. Brainwashing at work here!

  18. If you are looking for an example of a real Christian, this young lady embodies that claim. She realized that her faith is more important than the part in the play. She wasn’t going to compromise for the world. As Christians, we are confronted every day with the world view and it forces us to evaluate our beliefs. We must always remind ourselves that what we gain here on this earth is of no value when we leave here. God is not impressed with our wealth, our home, our cars, our job, or anything else that we have. After all, He is the One Who has given it to us. Eternity is forever and ever and ever. It is far better to stand for God and His Son now and endure for a short time than to lose all of eternity for the accolades of the world. God Bless Seyi Omooba.

  19. All things work together for good for those who those who love God God to those who are the called according to His purpose. This is easier to say than to faithfully follow. What great respect I must have for those who follow their calling and refuse to back down. Jesus went to the cross for us.

  20. She should have avoided taking that role in the first place. Due to popular culture, including stage, screen and television, most of the world believes homosexuality includes about a third of the entire population. Nearly every movie and TV show has at least one LGBTQ person or couple in a key role, far out of proportion to the actual number of people in the LGBTQ community. They are always portrayed as just normal folks. The actual proportion is somewhere south of 4% and they are not just normal folks.

  21. As an actress she has many roles. It does not mean she has to be like the role person she portrays. If she takes the role of a murderer, it does not mean she has to be one. The whole firing is a great injustice to her and to her religious freedom. Would a person identifying by the homosexual title as an actress not be able to portray a heterosexual? Would it be called a betrayal? The truth is that she is a genuine person with love and compassion in her heart and a great actress. If you really care about others you would want them to live as healthy a life as possible and get the help they need. We see so much death in those who choose to act out sexually against God’s holy Word and this is a great sadness. May the LBG etc. community be healed and come to know Jesus who breathed life into them and desires them to be free and not have to threaten others because they have accepted the brainwashing and indoctrination of many in the community.

  22. Why do people get offended? Is it because they are insecure?
    Is it because they know they have a problem but they don’t like people pointing it out?
    Are people really getting offended or just pretending to be offended?

  23. The apostle Paul wrote in I Corinthians Chapter 7:

    “It is good for a man not to touch a woman, but because of prevailing immoralities, let every man have his own wife and let every woman have her own husband.

    “The husband must render to his wife the obligations that are due her, and similarly the wife to her husband…

    “Do not deprive each other, except by mutual agreement for a time to devote yourselves unhindered by prayer; and come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you on account of your lack of self-control.”

    (The apostle Paul’s words here suggest regulated or restricted sexual activity, even within marriage! Augustine and Aquinas taught sex is intended only within marriage and only for procreation.)

    “I say this by way of concession, not as a regulation. I wish all were as I am (celibate), but each person has his own gift from God, the one in this direction, the other in that.

    “To the single and the widows, I say that it is good for them to remain as I am (celibate); but if they cannot restrain their passions, let them marry, for it is better to marry than to burn (with desire).

    “To the married couples I command — not really I but the Lord — that the wife must not leave her husband; and in case she does separate, she must either stay single or make up with her husband. And the husband must not divorce his wife.

    “…if the unbeliever wants to separate, let there be separation…”

    (Jesus forbade divorce, except in the case of unfaithfulness. And here we see Paul forbidding divorce, except in the case of an unbeliever demanding separation!)

    “Regarding the unmarried I have no divine injunction, but as one who has received mercy from the Lord to be trustworthy, I give my opinion… it is good for a person to remain in his present situation.

    “Are you united to a wife? do not seek release. Are you unattached to a woman? Do not seek a wife. But in case you marry, you do not sin; nor does the unmarried woman sin if she marries…

    “The single person is concerned with the Lord’s affairs, how to please the Lord, but the married person is concerned with things of the world, how to please his wife; he has divided interests.

    “The unmarried woman or the virgin is interested in the Lord’s affairs, that she may be dedicated to Him in body and spirit; but the married woman is concerned with things of the world, how she may please her husband.”

    “I mention this for your own good, not to throw a rope around you but to promote proper behavior and undisturbed devotion to the Lord.”

    I’ll take the conservative Christian opposition to homosexuality seriously when they condemn birth control, divorce, and fornication just as strongly.

  24. Why would Seyi Omooba even want to play such a part? She ought to make up her mind! By the way, this has nothing to do with Hollywood, which is in the business of cinema not stage plays. Hollywood’s biases are well-known, and if we’re going to shoehorn mention of “Hollywood” into this article, why not bring up Palo Alto (Facebook and Google), Cambridge (Harvard and MIT) and Seattle (Amazon and Microsoft) as well? Why no mention of Broadway? All of these are metonyms for people and institutions who are against orthodox, intolerant “bible thumpers”, at the same time as turning a blind eye to followers of Muhammad. Why pretend that Hollywood is the source of it, when it is clearly multi-homed?

  25. And any person who even criticizes a Muslim for a similar action is threatened with jail. Islamization of Britain is well under way.

  26. What would a lawsuit accomplish? I think she should just count her loss and move on. There’s no logic in their argument. Therefore you’d be arguing with a stone wall.
    This is all part of the “great delusion” that was foretold in the Bible for the time of the end.

  27. Absolutely shouldNOTbe fired. She made st be pretty good at what she does I’d someone is so intimidated by her that they have Togo ack five years for this insane accusation. Just shows how VERY INSECURE the person wo brought this up has to be. Makes me sick!
