Last week Truth Wins Out wrote about the refusal of Robert Gagnon and other leaders of the hardline ex-gay Restored Hope Network to oppose the execution of homosexuals, specifically in Uganda.
Equality Matters reminds us of Gagnon’s history in regard to American gay people’s right to life:
At NOM’s annual “It Takes A Family” (ITAF) conference, regular speaker Robert Gagnon distributed packets of bible verses on homosexuality to attendees, including the Leviticus verse which calls for gay people to “certainly be put to death.”
Equality Matters points out that Gagnon’s book, “The Bible and Homosexual Practice,” says that sexual minorities “have no excuse for not knowing” that engaging in homosexual behavior makes them “worthy of death.”
Participation in same-sex intercourse is partly its own payback for turning away from the one true God, since Paul regards such behavior as itself unclean, a dishonoring of one’s own body, and a self-shaming act of obscene indecency. At the same time, it is evidence of God’s future judgment, since the participants have no excuse for not knowing that those who do such things are worthy of death.
