Arlene Foster congratulates lesbian Scottish Tory leader and her ‘partner’ on birth of child

Genesis 1:27-28: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

Genesis 2:18, 21-22: “And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.”

It is a foundational principle of God’s creation that we should “be fruitful, and multiply”.

It is also a foundational principle of God’s creation that he made man and woman to be different from each other, and that he made them for each other.

It is a biological fact that two people of the same gender CANNOT “be fruitful, and multiply” in the natural way. Therefore, unnatural methods must be sought.

And that is just what has happened in the case of Scottish Conservative Party leader Ruth Davidson and her ‘partner’, Jen Wilson.

We are not intimately aware of how the process was worked out, nor do we desire to know. However, what we do know, and what any sane person would concede, is that two women, or two men, cannot create new life.

Yet DUP leader Arlene Foster (pictured, top), a professing Christian, has seen fit to congratulate two lesbians, acting wholly outside the will of God, on such an occasion as this.

Taking to Twitter to express her delight at and support for such ungodliness, Arlene Foster said: “New life is wonderful. We can all remember our first cuddle. Many congratulations.”

As we said before, the natural order created by God is a foundational principle of the Bible. It is contained in the first two chapters of the Bible in the creation story.

There should be no professing Christian who is not fully aware of this, and you can be certain Arlene Foster is indeed absolutely aware of this.

Yet she has chosen to publicly act in a way that repudiates this most basic Biblical tenet.

Of course she has previously chosen to do the same.

Back in June, we highlighted her attendance at an event celebrating the ‘contribution’ of various sodomites to society in Northern Ireland, while she also attended a Muslim religious celebration, even receiving a Muslim henna tattoo on her hand. She attended a GAA match, an organisation which to this day boasts many trophies and grounds named after Irish republican Roman Catholic terrorists, on a Sunday, claiming she had received the permission of her bishop. Given she is a member of the Church of Ireland and lives in County Fermanagh, that would presumably mean her bishop is the enthusiastic ecumenist, the Right Eejit John McDowell, hardly a great person from whom to take direction.

One of her party’s MLAs, Paula Bradley (pictured, above with Arlene Foster), co-sponsored the same sodomite-exalting event that Arlene Foster addressed and went one further by adding her name as a sponsor to a reprehensible drag queen event at Stormont, with no apparent condemnation from her leader, ie Arlene Foster.

And now she has given her blessing to the ungodly notion of a same-sex couple having children together.

We will remind Arlene Foster again of what the Bible has to say about this.

Matthew 19:4-6: “And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

A man shall leave his father and his mother, Jesus said, and shall cleave to his wife.

Jesus did not countenance or allow for a union between two people of the same gender, nor did he countenance or allow for an individual having two parents of the same gender.

We have seen many comments from the deluded, the deceived and the deceivers who would try to claim that Jesus would have been ok with, nay, supported same sex unions, despite there being not one shred of evidence to support such a bald assertion.

Here we have a concrete case of Jesus indicating that the only true and proper marriage union and parental arrangement being that of a man and a woman.

He then follows that comment up by saying: “What God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” Jesus, in this instance, was talking about divorce, but it could as easily and as well be applied to this situation with regards the union of man and woman. That which God has instituted ought not to be disregarded, changed or trampled over at the whim of the currently trendy opinion.

Why Arlene Foster felt the need to even comment on the birth of this child is not entirely clear, perhaps she is too keen to cosy up with the Conservative Party as they are political allies in Westminster.

However, Arlene Foster, as a professing Christian, ought to have her first alliance to God.

1 Samuel 12:24: “Only fear the Lord, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.”

Get your Muslim tattoo with Causeway Coast Vineyard

Causeway Coast Vineyard is truly a leading figure in the charismatic, ecumenical and easy-believist movements in Northern Ireland.

And it has taken another remarkable step in its rejection of true Christianity at a recent family “Summer Street Party” it held in Coleraine, as it advertised one of the ‘attractions’ on offer as being “henna and kids tattoos”.

The subject of henna tattoos is one we addressed briefly when we examined DUP leader Arlene Foster’s unChristian diary entries in June as she visited Belfast’s Islamic Centre as part of their Eid celebrations before speaking at an event honouring sodomites in Northern Ireland.

While at the Islamic Centre, Arlene Foster got a henna tattoo, and you can see her smiling as she receives it below.

As we said at that time, the non-permanent marking (an example of which is featured at the top of this article) has its roots in the polytheistic religion of Hinduism, but has more recently been adopted by Muslims.

Also known as ‘mehendi’, it is originally a Hindu practice and its use “is described in the earliest Hindu Vedic ritual books”, according to Wikipedia.

So it is something advocated in the Hindu ‘bible’.

Wikipedia continues by saying they are “intended to be a symbolic representation of the outer and the inner sun. Vedic customs are centred on the idea of awakening the ‘inner light’.”

So it is something used as part of sun worship, an utterly unbiblical pursuit which is a key part of Hindu worship and which is condemned in the strongest possible terms by God.

God pronounced the most fierce of judgments on such blasphemy and apostasy by the children of Israel.

Jeremiah 8:1-3 says: “At that time, saith the Lord, they shall bring out the bones of the kings of Judah, and the bones of his princes, and the bones of the priests, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, out of their graves: And they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon, and all the host of heaven, whom they have loved, and whom they have served, and after whom they have walked, and whom they have sought, and whom they have worshipped: they shall not be gathered, nor be buried; they shall be for dung upon the face of the earth. And death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue of them that remain of this evil family, which remain in all the places whither I have driven them, saith the Lord of hosts.”

The practice has been adopted by some Muslims and is now used fairly widely. Islam is of course a pagan religion and denies the deity of Christ, saying he was just another prophet like Muhammad.

This denies the gospel of the Bible and removes the hope of salvation from its adherents as the only way to heaven is through the blood of Jesus Christ.

Isn’t it then a strange thing for Causeway Coast Vineyard, supposedly a Christian fellowship, to be specifically advertising (see below)? Indeed, isn’t it a strange thing for them to be doing at all?

The Bible warns against the marking of the body in any event, though the tattoos on offer for children at the event will undoubtedly be those which are easily washed off.

This is what the Bible has to say about the marking of the body.

It says in Leviticus 19:28: “Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.”

That is fairly straightforward, isn’t it?

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 instructs us that our body belongs to God and we ought not to mar or mark that which belongs to God. Those verses say: “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

So why is the Causeway Coast Vineyard Church advertising not just tattoos, but henna tattoos, markings synonymous with pagan religions such as Hinduism and Islam?

That, of course, is a question for Causeway Coast Vineyard to answer.

It would not be the first pagan religion to be embraced by Causeway Coast Vineyard as its former leader, Alan Scott (pictured, below), said he was “all in” with the Pope of Rome. You can see our article on the matter by clicking here.

Then of course you have Peter Lynas, the leader of the Evangelical Alliance and a senior figure in Causeway Coast Vineyard.

Just last week he was bemoaning the fact there are still actual Protestants in the country who are opposed to compromise with the pagan corruption of Christianity which is the Roman Catholic Church.

He dutifully jumped to the defence of Ulster Unionist Party MLA Robbie Butler, a deacon in Maghaberry Elim, saying it was “sad” that Protestants declared the outrageous decision of that professing Christian to meet with the Pope during his recent visit to Dublin.

Peter Lynas also previously stated how interested he was to hear what the Pope has to say on moral matters and issued a soppy valedictory statement following the death of arch-ecumenist Billy Graham, the man who told Roman Catholics coming to him for guidance to stay in the darkness from which they were seeking to break free.

And it was Peter Lynas, among others, who sought to promote this ‘Summer Street Party’ on his Twitter page, saying “this should be awesome”.

Mimicking paganism may be “awesome” to Peter Lynas, Causeway Coast Vineyard and the Evangelical Alliance, but it is most assuredly not in the eyes of God.

Deuteronomy 12:29-31: “When the Lord thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land; Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise. Thou shalt not do so unto the Lord thy God: for every abomination to the Lord, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods…”

Let us strive to remain faithful to God and avoid any practices which are opposed by His Word and remain a truly separated people.

DUP continues its downgrade by co-sponsoring drag queen event

Genesis 1:27: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

Deuteronomy 22:5: “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.”

Towards the end of June, we at ‘Protestant Revival’ highlighted the distressing moves by DUP leader Arlene Foster which seemed to be geared towards placating various enemies of God.

First on her schedule of compromise was attending a Muslim religious festival (pictured, below), before she attended a GAA final in County Monaghan on a Sunday, an Irish republican organisation in which many of the clubs, stadia and trophies take their name from IRA terrorists.

And she concluded her whistlestop tour of compromise by speaking at an event celebrating the ‘contribution’ of LGBT people to Northern Irish society.

As we pointed out at that time, all this seemed to be a means of ingratiating herself with the murderers or murderer apologists of Sinn Fein with a view to getting their power-sharing government back up and running. Pleasing God, sadly, particularly for a party rooted in true Biblical Protestantism, did not seem to be high on their list of priorities.

Now we see further departure from the party’s evangelical roots as one of their MLAs (Member of the Legislative Assembly) acted as a co-sponsor to an event at Stormont (the would-be seat of power in Northern Ireland, were our Assembly functioning), entitled Alternative Queer Ulster.

It was being held as part of the ‘Pride’ week, a celebration of all manner of immorality encompassed within the LGBT+ umbrella.

Speaking at the event was an individual who goes by the name of Electra La C*** – a drag queen.

We don’t actually know what the final word of her name is, as both the Belfast NewsLetter and Belfast Telegraph opted to star it out, so we must assume it is a word not suitable for repetition.

That really says it all about this character, that their ‘stage name’ is so vulgar it cannot be reproduced in a newspaper.

Not only that, this drag queen notoriously wore a tiara dipped in HIV positive blood in a ‘Pride’ parade in Belfast two years ago.

However, the DUP’s Paula Bradley (pictured, top, with Arlene Foster) saw fit to subject our parliament buildings to such depravity.

Not only that, Paula Bradley also saw fit to put her name as a co-sponsor to the sodomite event ran by LGBT news outlet ‘Pink News’ at Stormont; the event which Arlene Foster addressed.

We must state that Paula Bradley, in a fairly recent Belfast Telegraph interview, said she was “not a practising Christian”, so she is not going against any publicly expressed belief.

And we must also clarify the policy surrounding sponsoring an event at Stormont to avoid the accusation of misleading anyone.

For an event to go ahead, three MLAs must sign up to the event. The first is the host, with two further co-sponsors adding their support. There must be cross-community backing for such events, so one nationalist and one unionist must support the staging of each event.

Paula Bradley was not the host, but would have been fully aware that this event was called Alternative Queer Ulster. She would also have been fully aware that such an event would be offensive to a great many DUP voters and a great many DUP members.

However, our concern is with the DUP’s tolerance of such vile events being given the endorsement of one of its elected representatives.

When questioned about the event by the NewsLetter, the DUP said that it was up to the host, Clare Bailey of the Green Party, to ensure the event would “comply fully with all Assembly policies”.

The event may have complied with Assembly policies, drag queens are not illegal after all, but the event certainly didn’t comply with God’s Word.

Their statement said: “DUP MLAs act as sponsor and co-sponsor to many different events held at Parliament Buildings.

“The Primary Sponsor for any event in Parliament Buildings is the person responsible for the event under the Assembly’s guidelines.

“Ms Bradley is one of the co-sponsors and as such was not privy to specific details, including participants. She is acting in good faith that the event will comply fully with all Assembly policies.”

The NewsLetter added the following: “The DUP was not withdrawing its sponsorship, the party added.”

So the DUP, which claimed Paula Bradley wasn’t fully aware of the type of characters attending the event, then says that, despite the utter depravity of this event having been clearly highlighted, confirmed it would sponsor this celebration of sin regardless.

What a disgraceful departure from the old days of the DUP, which campaigned to ‘Save Ulster From Sodomy’. Now it is sponsoring events supporting it!

How this demonstrates how we must stay close to God and His Word, for such situations can come about through nothing other than ignoring the commands of the Almighty.

In the verses at the top of our article, it is clearly demonstrated that a man wearing women’s clothing is an “abomination unto the Lord”.

Likewise, it is clearly demonstrated that people were created either male or female, there is no grey area in this.

And our bodies are to be used to glorify God, and that cannot be done when they are being used to carry out acts which are against God’s natural order.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 says: “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

The DUP are playing a very dangerous game in provoking God in such a way.

They have definitely gone backward, as the children of Israel did in the days of Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 7:23-24: “But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.”

Let this not be fully said of the DUP.

There is still time for this party, once led by the great man of God that was Rev Ian Paisley, to roll back on its moves towards outright rejection of God and His Word.

However, the time is short, and the days are evil and the pressure will continue to build on them, from both within and without, to cave in to such grave and wicked sins.

What a wonderful promise, though, we are offered in God’s Word, that a heartfelt, earnest and truly penitent return to Him will reap great rewards.

2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Muslim festivals and sodomite celebrations – Arlene Foster’s diary for June

Proverbs 13:20: “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”

The leader of the largest political party in Northern Ireland, the DUP, which was founded by Free Presbyterian minister Rev Ian Paisley, a man used mightily of God, has had a very unChristian schedule for the second half of June.

Arlene Foster began her companionship with fools on Saturday past by endorsing the pagan religion of Islam when she attended the Eid celebration, held by Muslims to mark the end of Ramadan, during which adherents fast between sunrise and sunset.

Islam is a religion which outright denies the divinity of Christ. Instead, they claim he is just another prophet, like Mohammed, pointing the way to Allah, their name for God.

Of course, there are many other criticisms which could be made of Islam, including the worryingly large number of believers who think killing non Muslims is legitimate, nay, commendable.

However, it is sufficient to highlight Islam’s blasphemous view of Jesus in order to condemn it as a false religion and, therefore, one which Arlene Foster should steer clear of.

Rather than that, she attended the big Muslim celebration in south Belfast on Saturday past and even allowed herself to receive a henna ‘tattoo’ (it is a non-permanent marking), a marking with its roots in the polytheistic Hindu faith, but which has been adopted by some Muslims in more recent times. The application of this tattoo is pictured at the top of this article.

Readers from outside Northern Ireland may not be entirely familiar with the current political situation here, but Arlene Foster’s party, a Protestant party, is involved in a power-sharing government in Belfast with the murderers and murderer apologists of Sinn Fein, a Roman Catholic party inextricably linked with the barbarous terrorist organisation, the IRA.

The wisdom of such a venture has been dramatically undermined in particular in the past 18 months as that government collapsed, amid Sinn Fein calls, among others, that gay marriage should be legalised in Northern Ireland. The DUP, which still has a strong Christian influence (though even its staunchest supporters would surely admit it is a far cry from what it once was in its faithfulness to God’s Word), is the only political barrier to the legalising of gay marriage in this country.

In that context, the next diary entry of Arlene Foster’s of grave concern is her acquiescence to the sodomy lobby by attending an event promoting “the contribution of the LGBT community n Northern Ireland”.

It is a strange event for the “LGBT community” to be having, given that their squawks are always for “equality”, yet they are happy to have an event singling out the achievements of people who happen to be a sodomite over those involved in heterosexual relationships.

But it is stranger still that a professing Christian such as Arlene Foster (she attends the Church of Ireland) sees fit to attend an event celebrating people whose lifestyle is in direct opposition to God’s ordained natural order.

The issue of homosexuality is one we have visited on a number of occasions lately and it is not one we wish to dwell on at length, but it must be clearly stated that homosexuality is an “abomination” (Leviticus 18:22).

It must also be clearly stated that it is “against nature” and “unseemly” (Romans 1:26,27).

It has been surmised in the Northern Irish daily papers that these efforts at outreach to Muslims and sodomites are an attempt to soften her party’s image.

However, all they are softening is the DUP’s stand for Christ.

We acknowledge there are many who think that ship has already sailed, but these are new departures for the DUP and we are saying to Arlene Foster and the DUP to stop in their tracks and turn back to Christ.

It is argued by the worldly that the route to securing a better lot for the Protestant people in Ulster is to embrace sodomy, gay marriage, abortion and various other reprehensible policies.

However, we can only truly prosper when we turn to Christ and follow Him.

A fine example of a leader turning to his natural enemies in his time of trouble, rather than to God, and suffering dire consequences, can be found in the case of King Ahaz.

It says n 2 Chronicles 28:16-23: “At that time did king Ahaz send unto the kings of Assyria to help him. For again the Edomites had come and smitten Judah, and carried away captives. The Philistines also had invaded the cities of the low country, and of the south of Judah, and had taken Beth-shemesh, and Ajalon, and Gederoth, and Shocho with the villages thereof, and Timnah with the villages thereof, Gimzo also and the villages thereof: and they dwelt there. For the Lord brought Judah low because of Ahaz king of Israel; for he made Judah naked, and transgressed sore against the Lord. And Tilgath-pilneser king of Assyria came unto him, and distressed him, but strengthened him not. For Ahaz took away a portion out of the house of the Lord , and out of the house of the king, and of the princes, and gave it unto the king of Assyria: but he helped him not. And in the time of his distress did he trespass yet more against the Lord: this is that king Ahaz. For he sacrificed unto the gods of Damascus, which smote him: and he said, Because the gods of the kings of Syria help them, therefore will I sacrifice to them, that they may help me. But they were the ruin of him, and of all Israel.”

Arlene Foster has been the subject of incredible levels of abuse over the past 18 months, and, like Ahaz, is at a low ebb and trying desperately to reclaim her former glory, as it were.

Ahaz turned to the king of Assyria, a nation which repeatedly attacked the children of Israel and hated God’s people, to try to save his kingdom.

Arlene Foster is turning to sodomites and Muslims, groups of people who are resolutely opposed to God’s people, to try to save her political supremacy.

Ahaz found that the Assyrian king “distressed him, but strengthened him not”.

Arlene Foster will find the same thing, her cowering before the enemies of God will get her nowhere.

She will find, like Ahaz, that “they were the ruin of him, and of all Israel”.

This was the warning given to the children of Israel just as they were about to enter Canaan and Arlene Foster needs to have these words in her head as she plots the course ahead.

They are found in Joshua 23:6-13: “Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside therefrom to the right hand or to the left; That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among you; neither make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto them: But cleave unto the Lord your God, as ye have done unto this day. For the Lord hath driven out from before you great nations and strong: but as for you, no man hath been able to stand before you unto this day. One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the Lord your God, he it is that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you. Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the Lord your God. Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you: Know for a certainty that the Lord your God will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which the Lord your God hath given you.”

Ulster is under threat from Irish republicanism, Romanism, apostate Protestantism and secularism.

The only safe passage through this storm is with Christ at the helm and His Word as our map.

It is not yet too late for Arlene Foster to pull out of this meeting, it is not yet too late for Arlene Foster to turn to Christ as her Guide.

Please, dear reader, pray that she and our leaders will consult God rather than think tanks or opinion polls, and put their faith and trust in Christ to guide us through.
