We like it A LOT when John does our work for us.
“We encourage people to continue believing that being gay is incompatible,” says Mr. Chambers, “with being in a relationship with Christ.” The difference between that and “God Hates Fags” is the difference between a pig and a pig wearing a graduation cap.
Is a problem for the church that it’s not famous enough? What a weird thing to say. Much less weird—and certainly a good deal more problematic—is Chambers’s casual, almost sublimely arrogant assertion that Exodus’s attitude toward gay people is indistinguishable from Jesus’.
Here I must disagree with John. Exodus’ attitude isn’t just problematic: It’s blasphemous.
