Klingenschmitt first delivered 205,000 fax petitions to Congress against open homosexual service in the military, than launched into a bizarre rant related to the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” that included the following:
Homosexual sin will always be a stench in the nostrils of Almighty God, an abomination which God condemns and shall punish with everlasting destruction. Even if the Senate had voted 100 to 0 to legalize sin, they could not remove God from His throne of Judgment, before which every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
The above raises a question to which I’m open to answers (mainly because I have none): Why do individuals like this have such a militant hatred of gays?
Even if one accepts the notion that homosexuality is a sin – as, say, adultery – why is there a segment of the population that appears to believe there is no worse transgression than homosexuality itself.
I don’t ever see murder, rape or child abuse being condemned in similar draconian intonations by these types.
I’m also often taken aback by the fact that they seem to know how God will react to certain sins, as well.
The claim that, “Homosexual sin will always be a stench in the nostrils of Almighty God, an abomination which God condemns and shall punish with everlasting destruction,” appears pretty definitive.
But unless Klingenschmitt has some direct line to God – which would seem doubtful – it’s the height of hubris to claim to know how God will react to anything that man does.
