Southern Baptist Theological Seminary's Al Mohler 'can't give' us acceptance; good thing we're not asking

by Jeremy Hooper

In a chat with Tony Perkins, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary president Albert Mohler today declared that he and his fellows "can't give" LGBT people their support or acceptance because that would just condemn us. Here's that:

You know what, Al? Have a good old time not giving us your support. Throw an anti-pride parade, if you must. Hell, throw an annual backyard barbecue where you stand around with crossed arms, pursed lips, and judgmental glances, and spend the whole day talking about how unwilling you are to ever tell an LGBT person that we'll get to frolic in God's eternal kingdom. I'm sure you'll get some folks to turn out, some of whom will likely even bring chips and soda. A time will be had by all.

Just don't confuse your personal "tsk tsk"-ing for merit. And don't even think about—DON'T. EVEN. THINK. ABOUT—inscribing that personally-held faith view into our shared public policy. We "can't give" you that.
