Welch: Election of Gay Mayor a Sign of America's "Cancer of the Soul"
Last month, after Annise Parker was elected mayor of Houston, Dave Welch of Houston Area Pastor Council, apologized to the nation for failing to stop this gay candidate from taking office, saying "we let our position on the wall be breached by the enemy."
Today, Welch is back, this time attacking megachurch pastor Joel Osteen for offering the opening prayer at Parker's inauguration, saying that officials like Parker and President Obama are "wicked" and saying their election is proof "of cancer of the soul among the people":
Every pastor I have heard from agrees Joel crossed the line in declaring that God "raised up" a mayor who denies Him, mocks him through her life and represents a complete perversion of His creation and created order – then thanking Him for doing so. Did God raise up Barack Hussein Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, etc. as well? Proverbs 16:4 tells us that God makes even the wicked for the "day of evil" ... I don't think, by the way, this context is what Joel had in mind during his prayer.
It is an important question, because as in all things we must look past surface symptoms to root causes, whether a lesion on the skin that is an external sign of internal cancer or wicked rulers that are political indicators of cancer of the soul among the people.
