Recently the San Francisco Gay “Men’s” Choir posted a video singing about how they are “coming for our children”.
Some significant lyrics include:
“But you’re just frightened – you think that we’ll corrupt your kids if our agenda goes unchecked. Funny – just this once – you’re correct.”
“We’ll convert your children – happens bit by bit, quietly and subtly and you will barely notice it… We’ll convert your children: we’ll make them tolerant and fair.”
“Your children will care about fairness and justice for others! Your children will work to convert all their sisters and brothers! Then soon we’re almost certain, your kids will start converting you! The gay agenda is coming home!”
Why, you might ask, would you laugh at the original video? Allow me to illustrate by framing the rest of this as a note to the gay boys choir.
Hey there guys,
I actually would like to thank you for this recent “heads up”. It really couldn’t be more helpful to us and our kids. Let me thank you, point for point:
First, thank you for giving us your game plan. This is really helpful for all of us who don’t often think about how evangelistic you are. It’s good for us to be reminded that, since you can’t have kids of your own, there’s an active agenda to brainwash our children through government schools and popular media. It’s super helpful to see that this was never about “just not being bullied”. It was never about, “love being love” or the “right to marry”. It was never about “two grown men making their own personal choices.” Actually, it was all about coming for our kids all along. Thanks for the heads up!
Second, I should tell you that, actually, most of us already knew this. I mean, this is a helpful reminder to some of us (see thank you point #1) but, I have to say, most of us were wise to this all along. I once heard someone repeat Bob Hope’s joke (decades ago!) about how California legalized sodomy. He said something like this: “So, California just recently legalized homosexuality. I figured I better leave before it became mandatory.” Bob knew what was going on and so did we. This is why we pull our kids out of government schools, provide higher pleasures for them than hours of TV per day, do family devotions, take them to church every week, talk about sex at a very young age, pray every morning and evening, pray separately for them as parents, have dinner together every night, read stories every night, and teach them about amazing believers like Corrie Ten-Boom, Eric Liddell, John Bunyan, Martin Luther, Amy Carmichael, William Tyndale, C.S. Lewis, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and George Mueller to name a few. We have better stories than you and our kids know them better than your Disney+ propaganda.
Third, I want to thank you for being so, explicitly, religious. Your “choir” uses the term “convert”. I’m sure you realize this is the language of a religion. I just think it’s really great that you’ve decided to finally be true to yourselves and admit that this IS your religion and, actually, you don’t think there’s anything wrong with proselytizing. This is a huge relief! We were kinda getting tired of being picked on for this. It’s nice to know we officially have company in the “proselytizing club”.
I think that pretty much sums it up, except for this one last thought: You pointed out early in the song that we think “you’re sinful.” And that’s true, but we also believe that about ourselves. We’re equal opportunity offenders in this regard and freely admit that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). The great thing about our faith is that there’s actually something to do with our sin. We don’t have to find ways to justify it or embrace it. We don’t have to take sharpie markers to our least favorite Bible verses and stress about which ones are true and which ones aren’t. In other words, we don’t place the burden of “being God” on our shoulders. We actually have a God who took sin’s punishment on himself. In the words of one preacher, “Jesus was crucified, so that you and your sins could be crucified with him. Jesus was buried so that you and your sins could be buried with him. And Jesus rose from the dead so that you and NOT your sins could come out of the grave.”
So, we invite you to come to Jesus Christ and sing to him as God, Savior and King. Indeed, He is King and to him every knee will bow and every tongue confess (Isaiah 45:23; Philippians 2:9-11). You might as well come now. There will be no hard feelings. The Father’s arms (and ours) are wide open.
