Klingenschmitt: People Not Going To Heaven Do Not Deserve Equal Treatment By The Government
"Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt dedicated a segment on today's "Pray In Jesus Name" program to decrying the Employment Non-Discrimination Act as nothing more than a "bathroom bill" that would allow men to use the women's restrooms and "violate your wives' and daughters' privacy in every public restaurant in America."
We have heard that sort of line from Klingenschmitt and his ilk before, but it is the justification behind this position that is really most remarkable. In defense of this position, Klingenschmitt cited a passage from 1 Corinthians 6 that declares that "neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God" to proclaim that, since gay people will not go to Heaven, they should not be entitled to any sort of governmental benefits here on earth.
"If they're not going to get eternal benefits in Heaven," Klingenschmitt asked, "why should we give them government rewards here on this earth? I don't think we should":
In essence, Klingenschmitt has declared that every person who will not be going to Heaven according to the beliefs espoused by his particular Christian faith ought to be denied "rewards" by the United States government, which apparently includes equal and fair treatment under the law.
