A coalition of 50 LGBT and women’s rights groups have issued a statement opposing legislation that allow Christian-owned businesses to ignore laws they don’t like, including anti-discrimination laws. Naturally, the wingnuts are objecting to this unholy alliance:
But American Family Association president Tim Wildmon told LifeSiteNews that pro-life Christians who avoid taking a stand on the issue of homosexuality risk being defeated by a flank attack in the culture war.
“People have different callings and different passions and both of these issues are very important. But I would say that Christians need to see what is going on in America as spiritual darkness vs spiritual light. We have several areas of engagement,” Wildmon told LifeSiteNews.
Wildmon said he wasn’t surprised by the strategic allegiance of the homosexual lobby and the abortion lobby in the fight to block religious opposition to their respective causes. “The common denominator the homosexual activists have with Planned Parenthood is they both promote actions that are diametrically opposed to the laws of God as given to us in the Bible,” Wildmon said. “Abortion is the taking of innocent human life and homosexual behavior is immoral, unhealthy and unnatural.”
Let me flip this around. What do anti-gay and anti-choice groups have in common? They both think that the “laws of God as given to us in the Bible” should be the law of the land, either partially or completely. In other words, they’re theocrats.
