Mohler rails against DOMA repeal, reality

Yoga-hating, empty womb-loathing Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President Albert Mohler made a special guest appearance on today’s installment of Focus on the Family’s propaganda broadcast radio show to assail the Obama Administration for declaring the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional.

“This administration has been very pro gay rights,” Mohler said, calling the DOMA repeal “a tragic milestone in the betrayal of marriage” on his blog.

“(Obama) called for the recension of repeal of DOMA as a candidate,” he continued, not being entirely truthful. “The lines have pretty much been written already. The White House is clearly made a calculation with far less political risk now.”

Mohler went on to say that marriage is essentially responsible for the pillars of society as we know it, but that today’s kids watch too much of the MTV and so don’t think that gays are reptilian humanoids hellbent on world domination like their forebears, ergo: Disaster is imminent.

Opines Mohler: “Let’s consider the centrality of marriage to human life. Heterosexual marriage is necesary for the structures neccesary for human happiness and health. [sic] It’s interesting now that the world is so morally upside down we have to make a disitinction between natural marriage and this new thing… Those under 30-35 support the idea of same-sex marriage, even Christians.”

This “new thing,” aka same-sex marriage, that “even Christians” don’t have a problem with? Turns out it’s pretty old, actually, and is nothing novel to Christianity, but whatever: Mohler’s on a roll!

“The young people on my campus know where we stand,” he continued. “What’s gone on there is they’ve basically accepted the argument that any form of discrimination is wrong. Of course, even the people making those arguments cna’t take them to logical conclusions.” Mohler then blamed schools and “entertainment elites” for brainwashing our youth to be less intolerant and more accepting.

“A lot of Christian conservatives will try to deny the obvious,” he said. “It’s clear that something like same-sex marriage … is going to become normalized, legalized and recognized in the culture. It’s time for Christians to start thinking about how to deal with this.” (A brave few are already leading by example)

“We need to remember we don’t get our marching orders form the world around us, but from the word of god.” Mohler then said that the purpose of government should be to “ameliorate evil,” and quoted scripture that says “too much government can lead to despotism,” which is funny because the effect of DOMA was more government intervention in people’s lives, not less, but who gives a shit, eh?

You can listen to the rest here — which is full of psychological projection, cognitive dissonance, soft ball questioning and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches — if you’re into that sort of thing (Not that there’s anything wrong with that!)

    Asking Al Mohler what he thinks about same-sex marriage is like asking the Grand Dragon of the KKK what he thinks about race mixing. A waste of time to even ask.

    I’m still waiting for somebody to explain the damage to “traditional” marriage that same-sex marriage poses. I’m waiting.

    Also, churches will never be asked to perform weddings they don’t agree with. So, what is Mohler’s problem? That he doesn’t get to run other people’s lives?

    A very loaded review, I’d say. It would be nice for an article in Leo reporting on what Mohler said and less about your own ideology of Mohler.

    The political candidates in this state are simply a reflection of the general population in this state. Illiteracy rules in Kentucky, and the ignorant love the kind of venom that spews from the mouths of people like Williams and Simon. What the uneducated don’t understand, they fear and hate. We should not be surprised by this. Until Kentucky takes education seriously and literacy becomes the rule, not the exception, we will continue to have these pathetic excuses for public officials representing us.
