Vicky Beeching? I never heard of her until several days ago when I read about her “coming out” in an article written by Dr. Michael Brown. Her music and career never blipped on my radar screen.
My lack of interest over her “coming out” was due, in part, because I tired of hearing the endless debate about homosexuals, gay marriage, and the incessant press coverage dedicated to it. Homosexuals represent 2% of the American population; how is it that we spend so much time on an infinitesimally small percentage of the population, and one with such vile sexual practices?
And, to be honest, I have a stereotype in my mind concerning lesbians: overweight, ugly, butch haircuts, aggressive, loud, rude, etc. I assumed Ms. Beeching fell into this category.
Imagine my surprise when I saw a picture of her…anything but the stereotype firmly in my mind. She is very attractive, not disgustingly overweight, does not have a butch haircut, and has that charming English accent that makes you want to sit down and have crumpets and tea with her. She is not your typical lesbian, in other words.
It is amazing what a good looking person can do to rekindle one’s interest in a subject that was growing stale. My interest in homosexuality suddenly peaked a notch or two northward and I decided to read what all the fuss was about.
I watched a video on Beeching where I thought she carried herself well. She spoke articulately and without the rage and hate so common among lesbians when they talk about Christianity or faith-based subjects. (Incidentally, this video was posted by Beeching on her Youtube channel.)
But I have learned something about humans: many are experts in the art of deception, and how we appear in front of a camera is not always the way we actually are. I wanted to see Ms. Beeching in an unguarded moment, and it did not take me too long until I had my wish, found just a few minutes later in the same video. Here is where we get a glimpse of her true colors.
The video switches to an interview between Beeching and Christian attorney, writer and pastor, Scott Lively, at 5:06. One can almost feel the tension building as it progresses.
The fireworks begin at 10:23 where Beeching interrupts Lively while he is describing his viewpoints on temptations. As a married man, he admits to being attracted to women other than his wife, sparking a heated response from Beeching. Such interruptions will continue throughout the remainder of the interview.
I am not a psychologist, theologian or trained counselor, but in my studies on lesbianism, there appears to be a high correlation between young female children who turn to same sex attractions who had ongoing conflicts with their fathers growing up. This often results in these children, as adults, exhibiting the same degree of disrespect toward male authority figures and males in general as observed with Beeching in this interview toward Lively.
At 13:00, Beeching states, “I love the Bible with all my heart; it is my favorite book…” and then goes on to argue with Lively that the passages in her “favorite book” that deal with homosexuality can be interpreted in “different ways.”
But it is only in the last forty years or so that these millennia-old passages of Scripture have been debated; never until recently has there been serious discussion in conservative churches or seminaries that same-sex relationships have been viewed as anything but abominable in the eyes of God. Such facts are lost on so-called “Christians” like Vicky Beeching.
For example, how much clearer of an example on how God views homosexuality than the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah? It is astonishing that the nonsensical argument that these twin cities were leveled by fire and brimstone because the inhabitants were inhospitable can be seriously considered—another sign of the biblical and intellectual ignorance galloping across the land today.
Beeching has not only “outed” herself as being a homosexual, but has also aligned herself with the enemies of Christianity who now oppose and stand against the standard of holiness so clearly laid out in Scripture.
Let’s be very clear on this point: one cannot simultaneously be a practicing homosexual and a Christian; this is an impossibility that has no argument in Scripture:
“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.…” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10 NASB)
As disturbing as Beeching’s public rejection of the Bible’s unequivocal stance against same-sex relationships is her militant and outspoken agenda to recruit others into her camp. Not content to struggle in private with her perverse attractions, she now, in a perfect textbook example, will give “hearty approval to those who practice them” (Romans 1:32 [c]) by becoming, in virtue of her public profile, the latest poster child for the LGBTQ movement.
Nothing Beeching can say or do will ultimately alter the timeless truth of God’s plan for human sexuality and marriage. What a pity that she has now put herself in the camp of those whom Jesus strongly condemned when He said:
“It is inevitable that stumbling blocks come, but woe to him through whom they come! “It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea, than that he would cause one of these little ones to stumble.…” (Luke 17:1-2)
