Some Christians believe homosexuality is a sin – get over it

The fuss over Keir Starmer’s visit to Jesus House is mad.

Brace yourselves. I have some shocking news. Some Christians disapprove of homosexuality. They think it’s sinful. They might even think it’s yucky. Amazing, I know, that people whose holy book literally says a man should not lie with a man as he would with a woman – it’s an ‘abomination’, booms Leviticus – might feel a little uncomfortable with the idea of two blokes getting hitched or two women sharing a steaming night of passion. And yet here we are.

This is the news that Labour lefties and gay-rights activists are shocked – shocked, I tell you! – that Labour leader Keir Starmer visited a Christian church that adheres to Christian doctrine on sexual matters. On Good Friday, Starmer swung by Jesus House in Brent in London and praised its mostly black congregation for the good works they have done in helping to roll out the Covid vaccine and running the local food bank. Instantly the identitarian set went into meltdown, because Jesus House is home to Christians who, get this, actually believe what it says in the Bible.

Pink News freaked out, as it always does. Starmer should not be mingling with ‘notorious’ homophobes, it said. The Labour Campaign for LGBT+ Rights said Starmer’s visit to Jesus House was ‘unacceptable’. Owen Jones slammed Starmer for associating with a ‘rampantly homophobic’ church. This is the same Owen Jones who spent the past five years as a prominent supporter of Jeremy Corbyn, who frequently met with hardcore Islamists and called Hamas his ‘friends’. If Jones is shocked by black Christians in north London who write letters to newspapers opposing same-sex marriage, he is going to collapse when he hears what Hamas does to gay people. (It kills them.)
