The aggressive sodomite group, Soulforce, is trying to shame biblical Christians across the country by organizing civil rights demonstrations on the campuses of colleges and seminaries that affirm God's condemnation of sodomy:
You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination. (Leviticus 18:22)
It seemed fairminded for us to agree with the repeal of sodomy laws, didn't it? Living in the tragic shadow of AIDS, we showed ourselves so compassionate. Sodomites claimed their civil rights were, in practice, second-class and that didn't seem right. Consequently, we sought the repeal of the laws prohibiting sodomy on the books of the vast majority of states across our nation. It was a Christian cause.
So, what did it get us? Moral capital with God? A "compassionate conservative" label in our nation's capital? A reputation for being kinder, gentler, reasonable? We're not fundies; we're "thoughtful Christians," right?
And what did it get sodomites? Did legalization of sodomy decrease their temptations? Did it make their sin safer? Did it decrease their rate of substance abuse or suicide? Would Christians thinking through the matter biblically, taking into account the immortality of the soul and our coming Judgment, claim the repeal of these laws was spiritually constructive for those suffering under this great evil?
No, our dear brothers and sisters who struggle with this particular temptation are only worse off due to our compromise with political correctness.
And what about us? Well, we see who needs help with their civil rights, now; and who will need ever more help with them in the future. As C. S. Lewis said, they'll tell you that you can have your religion in private, then they'll make sure you're never alone.
