On a recent episode of his “Pray In Jesus Name” program, Religious Right activist and Colorado state Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt railed against the ABC television network for developing a new drama about the “fictional town of Grace, Missouri [that] centers on a family of adult siblings whose lives are upended when their stalwart minister father reveals to his family that he is gay.”
“ABC News [sic] is defaming and attacking the true church by mocking the Bible and even mocking pastors who denounce homosexuality,” Klingenschmitt complained, before reciting the biblical tale of Sodom and Gomorrah as a warning.
“Why did God destroy Sodom and Gomorrah? Because of the sin of homosexuality,” he declared. “So, if you’re a pastor of a megachurch and you don’t believe the Bible, beware; you’re bringing sodomy and maybe the consequences thereof upon America, and we discern that demonic spirit inside of the producers at ABC television.”
