God disowns gays, and other Knight tales

by Jeremy Hooper

Robert-KnightWhen it comes to politics, Christians must pick their spiritual battles. And today, longtime foe of the 'mos Robert Knight is choosing to fight President Obama on this contention that everyone is a child of God:

On October 14, Obama said people are born with a certain makeup, claiming all are "children of God." Furthermore, he said, people do not make choices about who they love.

"That's a mangling of scripture [which] says not everybody is a child of God," Knight responds. "We're all created in God's image, but to be a child of God means to come under God's authority and to honor God above all else and to submit to Jesus Christ."

Obama 'mangling' scripture, says commentator [ONN]

Because that's the way for conservative evangelicals to bring LGBT kids to religion: To paint God as a de facto Miss Hannigan, lamenting all of the little queer orphans who drive him to drink.

Keep up the beKnighted outreach, Mr. K!
