Starting a Fire

Starting a fire
Bill Nemitz published a column mocking my faith in God yesterday.  It wasn't the first time, and it won't be the last.

You can read it here.

Since he is enthusiastically pro-sodomy he couldn't pass up a chance to drive a wedge between me and the Christian Civic League of Maine.  If you are tempted to believe his spin on my comments about blow drying hair click here to read my comments in context.

It occurred to me this morning that the Nemitz column is indicative of what will happen between now and November if God raises up the No Special Rights PAC.  If a campaign actually comes together to fight sodomy based marriage the press will work overtime to drive a wedge between us and the good folks on our side who want to avoid a discussion about the morality of homosexuality.

This may provoke consternation in the hearts of many good people in Maine.  They will reason that we should all be promoting the same message.  That we should be working together.

I liken this reality in politics to fighting a forest fire.

When you are trying to douse a really big fire oftentimes the only option is to start another fire.   This is called a firebreak.  This firebreak starves the threatening fire of fuel by consuming it before the other fire can draw energy from it and proceed on its path of devastation.

This counter intuitive action works.

My theory in this campaign in Maine is that we must start a firebreak.

No significant, effective resistance ever emerged to the homosexual movement's agenda in Maine.  Just like a small brush fire that grew out of control the homosexual movement has been consuming the fuel in front of it.  It is now a raging conflagration.  This raging cultural fire is now consuming the moral strength and clarity of Christianity.

My intention is to touch off a firebreak.  The failure of Christianity to effectively confront the sodomy-based-relationship movement must be challenged and exposed.  I am starting a fire within the church in hopes of denying the homosexual movement that fuel as it continues on it's course of destruction.

If my theory can play out between now and November, and it works, then the public will turn in a resounding NO vote and the homosexual fire in Maine will be doused.
