Lobbyist who testified as yesterday's #ILEquality hearing cites biblical stoning of gays as reason for opposition

by Jeremy Hooper

Dr-Robert-Vanden-Bosch

Yesterday afternoon, longtime Christian lobbyist Robert Vanden Bosch served as one of the three voices of opposition (alongside Ralph Rivera and Bishop Thomas Paprocki) to testify against Illinois' proposed marriage bill. So what leads Mr. Vanden Bosch to his work? Well, listen for yourself:

"I was asked by one of the state representatives why you oppose putting sexual orientation in the law. I said, well if you go back to God's law in the Old Testament you find that God said if a man is lying with a man, you take him out in the camp and stone him. It's obvious that God considers homosexuality to be sin, and if we normalize what God considers to be sin, then we cause problems for the rest of society."
