Southern Baptists Put Up Resistance to Homosexual Bullying

Finally someone is putting up a little resistance:

Get Equal, a pro-homosexual advocacy group, has launched a petition drive that calls on the denomination to apologize for its teaching against the homosexual lifestyle. Organizers on the group's website contend the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) is causing harm to the lesbian, "gay," bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, and petition signatures will be delivered this week to the SBC's annual meeting in Phoenix.
Terry Fox, senior pastor of Summit Church in Wichita, Kansas, and a longtime leader within the denomination, says the group is looking in the wrong place for an apology. "I think they're the ones that owe America an apology," he contends. "Their whole platform, that whole organization … is nothing but perversion, and it damages families, it damages children. Ultimately, it damages our own society."

We've already reached the point that stating the obvious like this is courageous almost to the point of recklessness. But if no one stands up to the bullies, the rot will continue to be rammed down our throats until we can no longer distinguish clean from unclean.

On a tip from Jimbo.
