Over the weekend, the Liberty Counsel’s Rena Lindevaldsen was a guest on “Richard Land Live!” where she and Land, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, discussed her new book chronicling the case involving her client, ex-gay kidnapper Lisa Miller.
During the program, Land warned that gay rights activists seek to “reduce [Christians] to the level of the Ku Klux Klan” so that they will be ostracized by society and went on to assert that gays are “recruiting” children, which is a form a child abuse, while claiming that homosexuality is “incomprehensible.” In the end, Land claimed, gays really just want to destroy the institution of marriage in order to bring about the “full-blown paganization” of America:
They’re recruiting down in the grade school levels. They’re recruiting people for homosexual clubs and it’s really child abuse is what it is.
You need to find out what’s going on in your school. You need to ask your children what’s going on, you need to see what books their reading, you need to know what the teacher is talking about because, I’m telling you, they are trying to brainwash our children in the public schools.
It’s the one sin that I know about that I find totally incomprehensible. But obviously some boys do find it comprehensible, because otherwise there wouldn’t be any homosexuality.
Even if you take out AIDS, male homosexuals die much earlier than heterosexual males do because of the inherently dangerous – health dangerous stuff that they engage in. But I don’t think that’s the big issue – I think that’s a side issue. I think the real issue is they want to destroy marriage.
The alternative is not live and let live – it is the marginalization and the ostracizing of people of traditional faith. And it will be the full-blown paganization. You know, they have already started talking about polyamory and pedophilia. They’re going to start talking now about lowering the age of consent – they are already starting to talk about it, saying who are we to deprive a child of his or her sexuality? And we’re going to end up like Greece and Rome. If this dam breaks, the tidal wave will be just an outright sexual paganization of society.
