Another reason to get your tickets for this year’s Values Voter Summit: a fundraising letter from the American Family Association promises that its new “documentary” — Divorcing God: Secularism, Sexual Anarchy and the Future of the Republic — will debut at the VVS, the major annual political gathering for the Religious Right movement.
The letter from AFA President Tim Wildmon indicates that the group is eager to maintain its status at a top source for over-the-top anti-gay rhetoric and religious bigotry. Wildmon writes that Divorcing God “connects the dots” among three movements that have “contributed to America’s moral decline” — the secular/humanist movement, the sexual revolution, and the homosexual movement. But it’s really about the latter. “In the relentless drive to convince our society that homosexuality is the moral equivalent of heterosexuality, we see the convergence of all three movements. The New York [marriage equality] vote is a potent case-in-point.”
Wildmon cites a verse from the biblical book of Jeremiah in which he says God complains about humanity’s rebellion against His law, and then Wildom writes:
Doesn’t this describe the past 60 years of America’s attempt to run from God?
It began when the humanists insisted that God be driven from the public square through the so-called ‘separation of church and state.’
It continued into the 1960s with the transformation of the marital embrace from an act of love and creativity to an act of mere self-pleasure and self-worship that ultimately led to the legalization of abortion.
Now our nation’s rebellion has reach [sic] the point that homosexuality is seen as normal, and same-sex marriage is embraced as a civil right.
In Romans 1, Paul uses homosexuality to describe the ultimate idolatry and rejection of God and His dominion over us, since it is a violation of the natural law that God wrote on the hearts of all mankind.
Fortunately, says Wildmon, God hasn’t abandoned America…yet. God is “calling us back to Himself,” says Wildmon, “And one way He is doing so is through the voice of the AFA, especially the message of Divorcing God: Secularism, Sexual Anarchy and the Future of the Republic.” And if the AFA can raise “literally hundreds of thousands” of dollars to get Divorcing God onto cable networks and into churches across America, it just might be possible to save the Republic.
