Liberty Counsel: ‘The life of the average homosexual is controlled by lust’

Barber agreed, declaring that gays “define their entire identity based up aberrant sexual behaviors and sexual temptations and acting on those temptations” and so, as Scripture proclaims, they are eventually consumed by this “lust-filled, sex-centric, perversion-centric lifestyle” and ultimately driven by a “dark soul” to commit this sort of violent behavior

Liberty Counsel

Liberty Counsel is a non-profit public interest law firm and ministry that promotes "Christian religious liberty, the sanctity of human life, and the traditional family," and is headed by attorney Mathew D. Staver. [ Wikipedia ]
Liberty Counsel devotes much of its time to fighting against same-sex marriage, civil unions, and adoption by LGBT parents. It opposes efforts to prohibit employment discrimination against LGBT workers, and opposes 'the addition of "sexual orientation," "gender identity" or similar provisions' to hate crimes legislation. The Southern Poverty Law Center lists the Liberty Counsel as being one of twelve groups comprising an "anti-gay crusade."

You Can't Cherry-Pick "God's Laws" to Rationalize Your Homophobia

If you’re going to swear that the Bible is the unerring Word of God, and you are going to use it to condemn people and rationalize denying them the same rights that you enjoy, you don’t get to accept one “law” and ignore those you don’t like. You have to either admit that the Bible is just a book of fables with a number of good stories and a lot of nonsense, none of which was ever meant to be taken literally, or live as if everything in that book is an absolute law.

Love is just as biblical as hate

Love is just as biblical as hate | Christian Homophobia | Scoop.it
Never forget that the bible was used to justify the Crusades, the Inquisition, and burn heretics. It has been misused to persecute Jews, support Hitler, and fuel the Holocaust. In American history, the bible was used to promote the genocide of millions of native people, promote and justify racial slavery and more recently to fight integration, sustain Jim Crow, and deny millions their basic human rights.

The Bible and homosexuality, a Biblical presentation with Matthew Vines | Christian Homophobia | Scoop.it
Matthew Vines attended a conservative Presbyterian church growing up. He excelled in school and went to Harvard in 2008, and in that less restrictive social and academic environment, Matthew came to understand and accept that he was gay. In conservative denominations, there are only a few options for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender members: leave it all behind to possibly find a welcoming denomination, stay and hide out or submit to a reparative therapy program, or leave the church altogether. None of those seemed acceptable to Matthew...
