AFA’s Fred Jackson: ‘We’re all heterosexuals, but some of us are broken’ (As in Gay)
Tough to begin with this one. I have a relative who likes to listen to American Family Radio, which, as you might have guessed, is the radio arm of the AFA. They run a daily show called “AFA Report” featuring the AFA’s News Director Fred Jackson and various other guests.
They talked at length about this story, pertaining to a Nebraska pastor who broke with doctrine and decided it’s OK for Christians to be gay.
The AFA guys say this Pastor is basically on the road to Hell because he’s going against the Bible and accepting gays. They go on to compares Gays to “adulterers”, “fornicators” and other forms of “sinners.”
AFTER that lovely discussion the cohost takes pains to point out that he does not actually hate gay people and he feels it’s important to love people. He sums this up using that classic expression: “love the sinner, not the sin”
He goes on to claim that God created ONE man and ONE woman for a reason and that if God was cool with homosexuality, he would have created TWO of each. This does of course disregard the fact that from those two people God created sprang many more of both genders. He also mentions the oft quoted Leviticus scripture that says homosexuality is “an abomination”. Of course no one on the show points out this is the same scripture by the way that appears several lines up from directives to not eat shellfish or wear clothing made of two separate materials.
But the real kicker is towards the end, when Jackson comes out with this gem:
“We are all just heterosexuals, some are just broken and in need of direction.”
Yes he actually believes that gay people are “broken” and apparently need to be repaired like a malfunctioning computer or something.
If you can stomach the audio it’s here. (click the second entry, the one for July 8, 2011)
Through the whole discussion there are going on the assumption that homosexual people have something wrong with them and ultimately want nothing else than to be fixed or cured or saved or whatever.
