And guess what, FRC V.P.? GAY SOLDIERS FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO FAITHFULLY CONDEMN THEM!

by Jeremy Hooper

RschwarzwalderThe Family Research Council's Senior Vice President, Rob Schwarzwalder, comes right out and admits the obvious: That opponents of open service want their personally-held faith views written into law. Period:

What Sec. Gates seems to have tried to articulate, but not summoned the moral courage to state outright, is that people who believe homosexuality is morally wrong are poor (that would be demography), uneducated (there’s your lack of “cultural” maturity), and habituated to bigotry (“generational”).

He is as wrong as he is condescending: Homosexuality is described as a sin against God in both biblical Testaments. Those of us who believe the Bible’s commands transcend time and any society’s “growing acceptance” (Sec. Gates’ phrase) will remain opposed to the “mainstreaming” of homosexuality, period.

That’s a moral statement, Mr. Secretary. It’s not a feeling. It will not change until the Bible changes, which is, for the record, never.

And those religious people who reject the anti-gay biblical cherry-picking will remain opposed to the hurtful condemnation of homosexuality, period. What the hell is your point, Mr. Schwarzwalder? We're talking about the U.S. Constitution here, not anyone's personal prayers!!

*Oh and tomorrow, this same FRC will be telling everyone that it's supporters of basic civil fairness who have the "radical agenda":
