The Shofar is the ancient trumpet which called the people of God to prayer, repentance, sacrifice and war.

A homosexual event next weekend has been labelled 'disgusting' and 'sad' by a Christian group.  The so-called 'masturbate-a-thon' is to be held on Saturday in a studio in London 's Clerkenwell, and is the subject of a ZigZag documentary for Channel 4.  But it is the event itself which has drawn the fire of Christian Voice, who recently organised a protest at the London Gay Pride march for the second year in succession and who last week took the credit for driving the Gay Police Association 'collectively insane'.

Stephen Green, National Director of Christian Voice, said today:

"There will be a room in with naked homosexuals will be exhibiting and playing with themselves while eyeing up the nearby 'trade'.  The entire concept is disgusting and sad in equal measure.  It is disgusting because sex as God intended it is between a man and his wife in the privacy of their own room.  It is sad because a pair of homosexuals of either sex cannot do sexual intercourse, so they must resort to mutual masturbation of various kinds or press a part of the anatomy into a use its Maker never intended.

"The Marie Stopes organisation, Britain 's second-biggest private abortionist, is supporting the event.  They say 'the masturbate-a-thon... also aims to act as a public education device to increase the use of self pleasure as a strategy for safer sex.'

"In other words, the only way homosexuals can be certain their sexual acts do not pass a disease on to someone else is to do it on their own.  I am sure the porters at Smithfield Market, just down the road from the venue, would have an opinion on what that makes them a bunch of.

"The event says it all about our society, which apparently has no law in place now which can prevent such an abomination from occurring in the first place.  But it also says everything you need to know about homosexuality, its lack of any vestige of restraint, any contact with the values of civilisation and above all its inherent sterility.

"Homosexuality is truly a sexual dead-end, which incidentally was the title of my book on the subject.  The good news is, there is a way out of this pathetic and self-destructive lifestyle.  There are Christian ministries providing healing for the underlying pathologies.  By the grace of God people have been forgiven all they have done wrong and been released from this and other lifestyles of disease, degradation and death.  Jesus Christ died to save and lives to heal. No one has to stay gay."
