Tough Guys Love God Too!

“I love each of you, but it sucks what you’re doing!” is Brian Klawiter’s message to those in our culture who promote evil and call it good.

Brian walks his talk. He’s a humble man, husband, and father who tries to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. The owner of Dieseltec in Grandville, Michigan, he’s also an outspoken American Constitutionalist. For him hypocrisy is not an option. Last week Brian announced his intention to refuse his professional services to any “obviously homosexual” customers. For exercising his Constitutional and religious rights of association, free speech, and “truth in love” he has received property vandalism, personal death threats, and public scorn.

Brian’s heart is being judged in the Press by those who want to portray him as a bigoted homophobe. This type of bullying is not surprising coming from the homosexual community. What is surprising is when the Christian community chimes in, rendering a hasty judgment on Brian’s actions, saying, “It’s a sin to say you won’t fix the car of a person just because he is gay.”

Brian’s deeply felt convictions on the matter of masculinity are understood when he shares of his own childhood, and the challenges he faced in finding a healthy male role model. Boys need fathers who are strong examples of both manliness and godliness. Our society is shamed when we bow to the demands of effeminate godless men.

Too often the church presents “soft” men who spend all their time in books, and don’t know how to work with their hands. These role models communicate a disdain for real masculinity. Kind of reminds me of the contrast between the meek Clark Kent and the competent Superman. What young boy doesn’t admire and aspire to become the strong hero?

We need more Christ-followers like Brian Klawiter, who will declare “I stand firm on my views and will not back down!”

“Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.” (I Corinthians 16:13-14/ESV)

The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it. Adonai Eloheinu!

    If God hates homosexuality so much then why did he create it in the first place?

    Religious education was one of my key topics at secondary school and was taught in a neutral unbiased manner. Even then it was the same to me as something by Tolkien or Pratchett; a fantasy.

      If You believe that the bible is fiction, then how can you make the claim that God created homosexuality?

          No, it’s called a contradiction in your world view which you need to address. You Justify homosexuality as a natural affection, and God created, Yet you deny the Word of God and what it says about homosexuality, calling it a symptom of a debased mind.

          That is the real reason why you come trolling Christian sites, Isn’t it? So you can justify yourself, because you know deep down that homosexuality is an unnatural affection.

          I am sorry if this hurts your dignity, but it is the TRUTH.

          Just like telling Muslims that Mohammed was a murderer and a rapist. It hurts, but its the truth.

          “Jesus is the WAY, the TRUTH, and THE LIFE….”
