Please, please, please understand, as we said in the 60s, “where I’m coming from”. This article is NOT about bashing homosexuals. I have homosexual family and friends whom I love very much.
However, I found David Gregory’s attack on Michele Bachmann for comments she made regarding homosexuality to be extremely disturbing and offensive. Bachmann is a Christian and simply compassionately espoused the biblical point of view.
Just as Muslims live by the Quran, Christians strive to live by the Bible. Here are a few Bible quotes about homosexuality.·
Lev. 18:22, “You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.”·
Lev. 20:13, “If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act;…”·
Rom. 1:26-27, “…for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts…”·
Whether you agree with the Bible or not is irrelevant. My point is Bachmann did not “make up” her take on homosexuality. It came from a holy book considered sacred by mega millions worldwide.·
So, when Gregory beat up on Bachmann, he was really attacking Christians and the Bible. But, most disturbing was Gregory’s arrogant bullying and implicit threat to all who disagree.·
In effect, he announced: We, the media, have declared homosexuality normal; period, end of subject. Anyone of you Neanderthals daring to suggest otherwise will suffer the consequences.
Would Gregory have been so aggressive interviewing a Muslim presidential candidate about their beliefs? I suspect not.
