On his “News With Views” commentary today, “Coach” Dave Daubenmire made the case that conservative Christians can never compromise one iota when it comes to homosexuality, which he said should be a criminal offense.
As Daubenmire explained, once Christians compromised on God’s standard of “no homosexuality [and] sodomy is a crime” by agreeing to allow gay people to “come out of the closet and be recognized,” it became impossible to stop gay marriage.
“The church is rot with compromise,” Daubenmire said. “Values we used to stand for we now compromise because why? We think maybe God was a little bit crazy back in those old days when he made some of those rules … Compromise isn’t a good thing. How do we know that? Because the Lord himself said, ‘I change not. I’m the same yesterday, today, and forever.’ He is a solid rock. He doesn’t compromise. And neither should we on values that matter. Compromise is deadly, folks.”
Just to clarify the point that Daubenmire is making here, he is saying that Christians can never compromise on God’s rules, even the Old Testament ones that might seem “a little bit crazy” … like Leviticus 20:
If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.
