FRC's 'Start Debating, Stop Hating' effort: Let's look at some of those aligned debaters, shall we?

by Jeremy Hooper

Matt Barber:

Gay male relationships constitute "one man violently cramming his penis into another man’s lower intestine and calling it ‘love’”

Lou Engle:

“If we’re struggling with a homosexual, same-sex desire, LET THE BIBLE KILL YOU, rather than make it easier for you, and say well, there must be a better scriptural answer to this … Brothers and sisters, let the Bible kill you rather than you twist the scriptures! And in that killing, it will break you so that you can find a redeemer and a savior! Oh, I believe there are those struggling with same-sex desires who will stand, having done everything to stand, and maybe they won’t find the deliverance they’ve been looking for, but they refuse to let the world dictate their theology; they’re gonna stand on the Bible. And they may go for thirty years in an agonizing struggle, but they go into heaven because they stood with God rather than standing with the ideologies of this world.”

Linda Harvey:

"God graciously allowed me, a sinner, to be a part of his kingdom. And ironically, when the veil of deception fell from my eyes, I recognized for the first time the road to destruction America was travelling unless a miracle intervened. One of the major drivers of this hell-on-wheels, it became obvious, was homosexual activism.

So I consulted my new compatriots— believers in Christ— certain they would have wisdom to share, but I encountered mostly indifference. Yes, I do praise God for a few trusted fellow warriors who see the whole picture, but despite this and spotty resistance from conservative enclaves, relatively few American Christians contend with homosexual aggression. Like the creeping alcohol abuse of a wayward teen, though, ignoring it only ensures full-scale disaster somewhere down the line. And so, here we are

Chris Plante:

"When parents die and we have orphans...we see those as tragic situations. Same-sex marriage enshrines a tragic situation into law, where a child is intentionally denied either his mother or his father."

Tom Minnery:

On potential gay Supreme Court nominees: “Someone who is a practicing homosexual is a non starter for the group.”

Chuck Hurley:

"Students, pray throughout the day for the salvation and healing of openly gay students"
Homosexuality is "degradation of God’s best design for the family"
