Over the last few month, David Barton’s son Tim has been playing a larger and larger role on the daily radio broadcasts and today he filled in for this father on a broadcast about the Texas National Guard’s refusal to provide benefits to same-sex couples.
Barton, of course, hailed the decision, saying that even a child can look at a gay relationship and “see that’s not the way God intended it”:
This should be something that any child – not that we want a child to look at nature and see this, necessarily – but even a child can look and see some things work and some things don’t work. God made bodies and parts certain ways and the reality is that everything that God did, when you go back to Genesis from creation, everything that God did produced life. And if you want a good measuring stick of if something is from God or is not, measure the way it works.
Jesus said in Matthew 7, judge the fruit, look at what it produces. And everything that God did in Genesis, it produced life. If you just look at the reproductive system that God made, that God established, it produces life and that’s how you know it’s right.
And so, for the homosexuals, what they do can never produce life and that’s how you know it’s not from God. Even a child can look and see that’s not the way God intended it.
