It is more important to be born again than being born this way.
The American Family Association reports that Office Depot is guaranteeing $1 million to help indoctrinate your children that they are born “gay.”
This week, Office Depot announced it is teaming up with recording artist Lady Gaga to push the homosexual agenda in public schools by encouraging our children to believe “gay” people are “Born This Way.”
To help spread the message, Office Depot and Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation have created several special, limited-edition products for back-to-school this year. Office Depot is donating 25% of the sale of each item back to the promotion of homosexuality, with a guaranteed payout of $1 million.
I just wrote an open letter to the corporate leadership at OfficeDepot to let them know that we don’t need to fund popstars messing with the minds of children in public school. Schools are for learning and not for sexual indoctrination. We need prayer and Bible in school – not sexual deviancy or popstars. America needs to become what it once used to be. In the old schoolhouse children learned that the Bible teaches man’s duty and the way to Heaven. That saying is actually from an old school textbook.
Office Depot’s support for the “Born this way” campaign is terribly irresponsible.
There is no credible evidence that people are born gay. Homosexuality is a poor and dangerous choice, and has been proven to lead to a litany of health hazards to not only the individuals but also society as a whole. We need to expose such gay myths.
By backing this social agenda, Office Depot is deceiving our nation’s young people into accepting a lifestyle that has proven to increase their chances of becoming victims to alcohol and drug abuse, depression and even suicide. When I buy tools, wood or other hardware I want value for my money and not indirectly support a lobby that works contrary to my beliefs and principles.
Telling people that they are “born this way” does not solve man’s most basic need. We are born into this world as sinners separated from God. By taking arrogant pride in the way we were born we still remain in our lost condition. Jesus tells us that we need to be born again in the gospel of John 3:3-7. I want to tell my children that they need to be born again just as I was born again when I was 17 years old and heard the gospel preached on a Christian shortwave radio station and I knew that it exposed my sin and I asked Jesus to save me and He did. He forgave my sin and gave me a new heart. There is nothing like the new birth. Now my life is not about being born a certain way but I give credit to Christ for being born again.
I urge Office Depot to drop this campaign and leave the raising of children to their parents. At this home we believe that God created us as male and female to complete each other in the sacred covenant of marriage. I’m sorry I can’t fund any other concept. The Bible is God’s manual for the human body. I work, serve and save to fund what is good in the sight of God. Why support sin with money when we need money for so many other good causes? I believe you need to seriously rethink your corporate giving strategy. I could send you a list with 100 suggestions.
If you have questions, feel free to write back. God bless America.

ACTION ITEM: If popstars campaign for being “born this way”, can you do something to tell everybody including kids they need to be born again? Distribute gospel tracts, place gospel signs, Christian signage on your company truck, host a gospel event at your home (to show a movie like Jesus Film, 180 Movie, Overruled Movie, Light of the World e. g.) … Be creative and realize your own idea after praying about it!
