Columnist: Gays and Lesbians ‘Deserve the Death Penalty’

Chris Johnson of the American Decency Association has written a new column insisting that gay and lesbian Americans have committed such an egregious crime against God that they “deserve the death penalty.”

Not only that, but if you’re a gossip, you probably deserve the chair too.

“The laws of God cannot be overruled or deemed unconstitutional,” Johnson wrote. “Of course, we ALL break those laws and being homosexual doesn’t make a man a sinner any more or less than being a gossip. Both crimes deserve the death penalty, and only the one who relies on the righteousness of Christ can escape it.”

“We aren’t just defending marriage – whether we call it natural marriage or traditional marriage or Biblical marriage – because it’s the way we’ve always done things,” Johnson writes. “We have a much more firm foundation than tradition. We affirm marriage in the way that God himself intended it.”

In another recent column, American Decency Association’s Lisa Van Houten wrote that, “There is no good news in our government affirming a lifestyle that leads to destruction. As greater discrimination and even persecution comes, may you and I not bow to Nebuchadnezzar, but stand for what is faithful and true.”

“This puts sexual behaviors on the same level of immutable characteristics as race and ethnicities,” she claims. “It also elevates LGBT affiliation over and above the First Amendment freedom of religion and the free exercise of those religious beliefs.”
