Peter LaBarbera was the guest on the American Family Association’s “Today’s Issues” radio program today where he, Tim Wildmon, and Tony Perkins discussed the Religious Right’s on–going campaign against Dan Savage.
After the interview ended and before the guest for the following segment was introduced, Perkins took a moment to urge listeners to place Savage at the top of their prayer list in hopes that Savage will be “blinded by the light” and become a “modern day Saul of Tarsus“:
I would put out this challenge to folks who are listening: to put Dan Savage on the top of your prayer list and pray for him because I believe he has the potential to be a modern day Saul of Tarsus. I mean, just think if the Lord got a hold of his heart and changed him and turned him from persecuting Christians to being an advocate of Christianity and morality, what a huge impact that would have. So don’t get angry at Dan Savage; he’s doing what people do when they’re lost. Pray for him that he would see the light, be blinded by the light, and come to know Christ as his personal savior.
