Iris Robinson Speaks Out

17 Jul

I have often voiced criticism of the Democratic Unionist Party, their politicians and their policies but today I want to applaud Iris Robinson for saying on the Nolan radio show that “the government has the responsibility to uphold God’s laws morally”. In this statement she is recognising the fact that the will of the majority should not be supreme in state instead Christ should be. These words are telling the nation the message that inspires this blog, “there is another king, one called Jesus” (Acts17:7).  Iris Robinson has spoken out against homosexuality and made this statement in a discussion regarding abortion. Her pro-choice opponent in this debate responded scathingling “now we are down to it… it’s all to do with God’s law” denouncing her, a born-again Christian, as a “religious fundamentalist”. God’s law is the basis on which this country must be run and every nation has a duty to recognise God as the ultamite law giver. I may still disagree with the Strangford MP on many issues and how she seeks to apply God’s law in some situations but this controversial statement should be supported by all Christians. We have a duty to be salt and light politically as well as socially and our political involvement should primarily be telling our nation that Christ is King.

You can listen to the interview again on the bbc website.

    I heard this on BBC Radio Ulster an hour ago, and the reaction tells us what is really going on in the minds of the secular humanists in Northern Ireland. However, the fact that humanists are surprised that a Christian would argue for such a thing also says a lot. Christians need to get back to the Bible.

    “I have a very lovely psychiatrist who works with me in my offices and his Christian background is that he tries to help homosexuals trying to turn away from what they are engaged in.

    I am happy to put any homosexual in touch with this gentleman and I have met people who have turned around to become heterosexual.”

    Would you also agree with what Iris said in the above statement?

    Is that question addressed to me or the Anonymous comment writer above?

    As Anonymous isn’t forthcoming I’ll reply.

    If you mean do I agree that homosexuality is a sin, the answer is yes. The Bible tells us that all forms of sex outside marriage (fornication, bestiality, adultery, homosexuality) are equally wrong and all of them break the 7th commandment.

    If you mean do I think that Christian counselling to help homosexuals deal with this sin in their lives, the answer is also yes.

    A very well worded response!
