Today, President Obama signed the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell … which provides an excuse to post an excerpt from a letter Richard Land sent last week, which we somehow missed at the time, warning him that doing so will cause God to unleash his judgment upon America:
[W]we regret we find ourselves greatly troubled by your efforts to repeal the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy as homosexual behavior conflicts with the teachings of our shared Holy Scripture.
It remains clear, however, that homosexual behavior cannot be normalized without rejecting God’s moral standards (Lev. 18:22; 20:13; 1 Cor. 6:9-10). The Southern Baptist Convention’s 2009 resolution recognizes that the Bible describes homosexual behavior as both a contributing cause (Gen. 18:20-21; Lev. 18:24-28; Jude 7) and a consequence of God’s judgment (Rom. 1:18-32). We believe it to be contrary to Scripture to commend open homosexual relationships in general, including within the military ranks. Our nation has moved from God in so many ways and we are deeply concerned that an increasingly affirming policy toward homosexual behavior will provide further impetus for God’s judgment on our nation.
