A great essay from Al Mohler
As a companion link to my prior post, Al Mohler gets the floor on CNNs Belief Blog and posts just a great essay that deal with all of the common objections to condemnation of homosexuality: The difference between the holiness laws of national Israel and the universal laws regarding sexuality, the "what about slavery or polygamy" canard, he deals with the utter failure of the church in regards to divorce as it changed the culture and ravaged families. He really hits all of the important points in pretty short order given the general Biblical ignorance of the populace and the commenters at CNN in particular. Check out My Take: The Bible condemns a lot, but here's why we focus on homosexuality. Dr. Mohler states forcefully that this is "the most pressing moral question of our times". That might be a bit of hyperbole but his point is well taken that this is not an issue where the church can turn a blind eye.
