The True Church of Springfield Gets Ambushed by the Fake Church
On November 1, 2012, while you were taking your kids to after school activities and enjoying friends, a seminar was being held at Drury University called, “Straight for Equality.” The keynote speaker was Dr. Teresa J. Hornsby, a professor of Religion at Drury University. She also acknowledges that she is a lesbian. The title of her message was, “Who Locked the Door? Paul and the Keys to the Kingdom.” Dr. Hornsby is the author of Sex Texts from the Bible and co-author of Bible Trouble.
Prior to the meeting, I couldn’t help but notice that Mayor Stevens and Councilwoman Jan Fisk were in attendance. The thing that really caught my attention was that Mayor Stevens appeared to know most of the organizers and seemed to be on friendly terms with them.
By the end of the meeting it was clear that they were planning their preemptive attack on the churches of Springfield. Their next strike would be in the “Name of Jesus.” Their strategy is to take the spiritual high ground in the view of the public. So far everything is working according to plan.
This should explain the ambush on Pastor John Lindell of James River Assembly. After being asked to address the “Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Task Force” he was promptly chastised in the Springfield News Leader by twenty three so called pastors and spiritual leaders for being hateful. This was intended to intimidate and silence the Christian voice. Please excuse my lack of decorum, but these were twenty three false witnesses. There was not a trace of hate in pastor Lindell’s speech. Jesus and His true followers would never take their position.
This meeting had three breakout sessions. Panel 1- Faith Issues moderated by Brock Warren, who holds a Master of Divinity in Ministerial Studies at Vanderbilt University. The panel consisted of Peter Browning, Becca Doss and Kathy Munzinger, a member of Brentwood Christian Church and president of the Springfield chapter of PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays).
Panel 2 – Healthcare issues, moderated by Dr. Jaimee Givens. The panel consisted of Dr. Stephen Adams and Joshua Castillo. Mr. or Miss Castillo is a transgender as of 2007.
Panel 3 – Workplace issues, moderated by Springfield Councilwoman Jan Fisk. The panel consisted of A.J. Brockelman, Executive Director of PROMO (Missouri’s statewide LBGT advocacy organization); Cheymeika Ashmore; Audra Franklin and Felecia Morgan.
Church, is this check or checkmate? Your move?
The next Task Force meeting is Monday, July 15th at 4:30. 330 W. Scott St. Be there!
