I only recently discovered Faith & Heritage, so I’ve been reading a lot of articles and posts from the archives. In a recent article I read about a PCA pastor named Tim LeCroy. It seems that Brother Tim is less than enamoured of white people who refuse to just lie down in front of the oncoming Diversity bulldozer. I won’t rehash the article here. If you haven’t read it, it’s well worth your time. But for now, suffice it to say that Rev. Tim LeCroy is an anti-racist. A rabid one, to put it bluntly. Or, as Dick Cheney might’ve put it, “Big time.”
Which piqued my curiosity. See, I have a theory about Diversity, and the celebration thereof. It seems to me that once someone steps on the Diversity elevator and presses the down arrow, they don’t get off until they’ve gone all the way to Hell.
Which means that once a church or group decides that there’s no meaningful differences between black people and white people, so it doesn’t matter who marries who, it’s inevitable that they’ll eventually decide that there are no meaningful differences between men and women, so it doesn’t matter who marries who, or who wears what, or where anyone goes to the restroom.
I could be wrong, but think of all the groups that embraced the Civil Rights movement and interracial marriage back in the 1960s. Is there a single one that openly opposes gay marriage today? If there are, I’m not aware of them. And the same thing will happen with today’s evangelicals. Today it’s the blacks they’re all gaga over, while they still oppose homosexuality (for the most part, anyway). But that will change, and evangelicalism will embrace homosexuals and gay marriage in the not-too-distant future.
Of course, the not-too-distant future is a little less distant everyday, and some evangelicals are already moving pretty openly in that direction. And I figured that, if my theory is right, as virulently anti-racist as Tim LeCroy is, there’s a real good chance that he’s probably in the vanguard on the homo thing. So I started googling.
And, boy, was I right.
Get a load of this article he posted on his website June 15th: “A Pastor’s Statement on the Orlando Attack Against LGBTQ People.” It’s a real doozy.
He starts off by apologizing, saying that as a white heterosexual Christian male, he really has no right to even speak to the exalted homos without getting their permission, but he’s going to take the risk:
When news of the Orlando Massacre began to come out and I became aware of it Sunday afternoon, I wanted to say something. But I also did not want to seem like an opportunist capitalizing on a horrible tragedy. I am cognizant that as a straight white Christian man that I didn’t necessarily have an invitation to speak.
Then, like a prophet of old, he laments the fact that the gay nightclub Pulse is now out of business, which means gays have one less place they can go and do their thing:
There are not many safe places for LGBTQ people to feel free to be who they really are without fear. That club was such a space. That was attacked and that safety shattered. It saddens me to know that LGBTQ people truly do not have any safe places now.
Yes, Pulse was a place where gays can “be who they really are without fear.” In other words, a place where they can dance with each other, make out with each other, and find a man to take home and have sex with.
Yes, it’s certainly a shame that a place like that is now out of business.
But Tim LeCroy is a Christian preacher of the gospel, and he wants gays to know that in Christ there’s hope for men in their condition. Surely he tells them to believe on Jesus Christ and repent of their vile sodomy?
Um, no. Instead, he expresses the hope that Christian churches can become like gay bars, “safe spaces” where gays can do their thing without being judged or harassed. I’m not kidding:
I hope the church can be a place of safety for you. A place where you don’t have to be afraid. A place where you don’t have to be on your guard. A place where you can be you.
Then he goes on to damn most churches as wicked, hateful places that are too dangerous for gays to enter:
I realize that for many of you the church has been anything but safe. I realize that the last place many of you would go for safety would be a church.
So, there you have it, folks. Rev. Tim LeCroy, a pastor in the Presbyterian Church in America, says churches are unsafe for gays because they can’t be themselves like they can in a gay bar, and hopes that those evil churches repent of their wickedness and become cities of refuge, where gays can go and “be who they are” without being judged.
LeCroy’s articles has been up for nearly three months, and I’ve not seen anyone in the PCA rebuke him for it, let alone demand that he be defrocked.
Anyone who thinks the PCA will stand strong against gay marriage is kidding himself.
Now, I’m pretty jaded, so I wasn’t very shocked when I read Rev. LeCroy’s article. However, I must say I did get quite a shock when I checked out his Twitter page. Yes, it’s full of the same PC anti-Christian/anti-white hatred, but I expected that. What I didn’t expect was that if you scroll down a little, you’ll see a notice from Twitter from October 2015:
Timothy LeCroy followed lgbt vibes., adult star lover, mike khandjian and 17 others.
LGBT Vibes is pretty much exactly what you’d expect it to be.
Adult Star Lover is a Twitter account that’s filled with vile, hardcore pornography.
I’m sure Rev. LeCroy only follows these pages so he can witness to them more effectively.
