Illinois' anti-gay 'family' group posts truly vicious column; tells gays to divorce, repent

by Jeremy Hooper

Feeling self-satisfied by a state marriage bill that failed to come to a vote, the Illinois Family Institute is now working to deny that civil marriages even exist for same-sex couples, and is calling on those in currently legal marriages to break their relationships and "repent." Happy Pride Month!

This call comes via a column penned by noted evangelical John Piper, which the IFI is heavily promoting on its site. In said column, Piper reduces gay people to having "same-sex attraction" that "is a brokenness that is part of humanity’s fallen condition," claims that there's no such thing as a marriage between a same-sex couple and that states that say otherwise are engaging in a "prostitution of language," and encourages his supporters to guide gay people through a process of divorcing ours spouses and "repenting." I'm not being facetious with that last line—Piper seriously lays out a thirteen-point plan for how his side can "lead us out" of our marriages and our orientations.

It's truly disturbing stuff that, for a married man like myself, sounds like a battle plan for war against my family. And the IFI, the group most fully working against the marriage bill in Springfield, is promoting this view!! See link:
