Audio: Focus on the Family prez says gays are at battle with God

by Jeremy Hooper

Janet Mefferd is one of the most aggressively anti-LGBT Christian radio hosts around. Yet despite his hollow lip service about being a "softer" kind of religious right voice, Focus on the Family president Jim Daly went on the proudly incendiary Mefferd's show today, where he claimed that gays are in "pain" and are at battle with "the creator of the universe." Enjoy:

Over the past year, I've become even more disgusted with the "new" Focus on the Family positioning than I ever was with the "harder," "meaner" Dobson variety. I know all too well how hollow the whole "God's truth with Christ's heart" charade truly is, at least as it applies to LGBT people. I know that it's true purpose is to provide its practitioners (who still consider gays to be "a particularly evil lie of Satan," don't forget) with a "justification" here in a world that is standing against the Focus agenda in greater and growing numbers. It's really weak. And lame. At least Dobson had the spine to take whatever lumps might come his way.
