Rodney Howard-Browne, a pioneer of the Holy Laughter movement, is currently leading a three-week long revival event in Washington, DC called “Celebrate America” that is featuring a variety of Religious Right leaders.
Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver was among the first speakers to participate over the weekend where he declared that America is a modern day Pompeii that is on the verge of total destruction because of its embrace of things like abortion and gay marriage.
As Staver explained, not all sins are equal because, according to 1 Corinthians 6, sexual sins alone are committed against one’s own body and so they are “unique from any other sin.”
As such, he said, by accepting homosexuality and gay marriage, our society is “moving into a direct attack on who God is.”
“When you destroy human sexuality,” Staver proclaimed, “and when you destroy human life created in the image of God and you destroy God’s creation of marriage as man and woman, husband and wife, male and female, when you destroy that, you destroy your understanding of who God is. That’s where we are moving right now in America”:
