Prof. Gagnon Responds to Christian Groups’ Compromise with LGBTQ Activists on Sexual Orientation Laws
Posted at Americans for Truth About Homosexuality:
“Jesus didn’t formulate the Golden Rule to provide special legal protections for, and promotion of, immoral behavior.” — Prof. Robert GagnonFolks, the largely Christian social conservative movement never seems to learn that by constantly “playing defense” and backing up in the face of a hyper-aggressive LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) movement, we will always lose. Now a group of “leaders” from two evangelical associations are getting in the game, floating a disastrous and cowardly compromise with “gay” and “transgender” activists that would only help advance the normalization of sex-and-gender perversion in the United States. Prof. Robert Gagnon, probably the world’s leading authority on the Bible and homosexuality, here ably responds to this misguided proposal. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera
Dr. Robert Gagnon’s Response to Evangelical Leaders’ Compromise with LGBT Activists

In a blog post titled “‘Fairness For All’: Smart Politics, Or A Sellout?” (Dec. 13), Rod Dreher, senior editor at The American Conservative, reports a defense of the recent decision by the boards of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) and the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) to support “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” “federal antidiscrimination law in exchange for religious liberty guarantees written into the same law.” The defense was made by “a prominent conservative Evangelical political strategist who works at both the national and state levels” and whom Dreher calls “Smith.” Rod himself professes to be unsure about the whole subject; an uncertainty that appears to be fueled by his usual belief that voting Republican changes nothing.
