Albert Mohler, We (Southern Baptists) Have Lied About the Nature of Homosexuality”
From the Millenial Perspective:
Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and a staunch conservative, started a controversy with comments he made at the Southern Baptist Convention’s annual conference.
The Associated Press quotes Mohler as saying that homosexuality isn’t something that people can “turn on and turn off.” Mohler went on to say that “only the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ gives a homosexual person any hope of release from homosexuality.”
It’s important to note, though, that Mohler didn’t make these comments because he wanted to start a controversy. A certain fundamentalist Southern Baptist pastor challenged Mohler on the floor of the Southern Baptist convention, forcing Mohler to mount a defense of his views.
The pastor asked Moher if he made this statement that had been credited to him: “We’ve (Southern Baptists) lied about the nature of homosexuality and have practiced what can only be described as homophobia… We’ve used the choice language when it is clear that sexual orientation is a deep inner struggle and not merely a matter of choice.”
Mohler responded, “I made those statements. They are not alleged statements. I made them.”
