The recent effort to pass anti-bullying legislation is a trap designed to indoctrinate school children to accept same-sex marriage and unhealthy sexual behavior - all under the guise of anti-bullying.
The trap ingeniously creates the false impression that those who oppose anti-bullying legislation (namely Christians) are themselves homophobic bullies.
In fact, Christ provided us with the best example of handling bullies without condoning unhealthy sexual behavior - and Christian children should be demonstrating that example in their public schools.
In John 8:3, Jesus was confronted by the Pharisees regarding a woman caught in the act of adultery. Under Mosaic Law she, (and the man) should have been stoned.
Jesus understood this to be a trap. If he said the woman should not be stoned they would accuse him of violating Moses’ law. If he urged them to execute her, they would report him to the Romans, who did not permit the Jews to carry our their own executions.
Jesus’ responded “If any one of you is without sin let him be the first to throw a stone at her.” Upon hearing this, they began to go away, one at a time, the older ones first.
Then he said, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” No one she answered. “Then neither do I condemn you. Go now and leave your life of sin.”
Christ stopped the bullies by exposing their sin, and then told the woman to leave her own life of sin.
This is how we should defeat bullying – and address unhealthy sexual behavior.
When Christian children witness the bullying of their GLBT classmates they should demonstrate Christ’s example by standing up to the bullies. Bullying is a form of judgment and it is God’s role to judge, not ours.
However, they also need to take the next step and build a relationship that allows them to share the truth of God’s plan for family, sexuality and marriage.
Clearly, Christ’s example of defending the adulterous woman teaches us that defending a GLBT classmate from bullies is not condoning GLBT behavior. But more importantly, it demonstrates to the world that we can love someone while disagreeing with his or her sexual behavior.
