'You Know a Society has been Abandoned by God When it Celebrates Lesbian Sex'

On today's broadcast of James Dobson's "Family Talk" radio program, Dobson once again aired a sermon delivered by John MacArthur, Pastor of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, in which he explained that America has been abandoned by God.

Dobson prefaced MacArthur's message by saying that not everyone in the audience would be comfortable hearing this message, but "I do agree with what he had to say on this day, it is consistent with my own perspectives of where we are as a nation."

MacArthur's sermon focused on Roman 1: 18-32 as he declared that "you know a society has been abandoned by God when it celebrates lesbian sex":

The first thing that happens in a nation when it is abandoned by God is a sexual revolution. Moral sexual perversion, pornographic desire describes the general character of the culture. When a society is abandoned by God, it operates out of its own perverse sexual passion without restraint. The first thing you look for in a society if you are trying to discern whether God has abandoned that society is whether or not that society has gone through a sexual revolution so that illicit sex, adultery, every form of immorality is accepted as normal in that society.

...

God gave them over, not just to passions that are explicable because they're men and women, but to inexplicable, degrading passions for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural. You know a society has been abandoned by God when it celebrates lesbian sex.
