Glenn Stanton responds to my post; gives me another opp. to highlight his extreme view

by Jeremy Hooper

Yesterday, I wrote a piece about Glenn Stanton's view that homosexuality constitutes a "a particularly evil lie of Satan because he knows that it overthrows the very image of the Trinitarian God in creation" in which I argued that the prominent Focus on the Family staffer should own this view whenever he speaks on the subject of civil rights for LGBT people. Now comes this glib response via Glenn Stanton's personal blog, followed by my at-this-point-unapproved reply to it:

Bring it. I live for this.

And who knows, maybe saying that "nothing else challenges this image of the Triune God so profoundly and thoroughly as homosexuality" will help Focus on the Family's desire for a newer, softer image. Maybe it will stop companies like Tom's or the NCAA from having to back away from the organization that's so largely known for animus. I fail to see how.

*UPDATE: In a very telling turn of events, Glenn, after first choosing to engage me a little more, proceeded to abruptly delete the post. Here's how the page looked right before it was pulled (sans one more comment from me, which I guess will now forever be lost in moderation hell):
