Arkansas pastor Tim Brooks, the latest in a series of homophobes to lash out against gays, warned listeners in a radio program on Monday that America today is just like Sodom and Gomorrah in which militant gays seek to force Christians to participate in their sin, reported Right Wing Watch.
The Senior Pastor of Christian Ministries Church in Hot Springs said on ‘WallBuilders Live’, ‘Here is the only thing that will satisfy this agenda, and it’s very clear: participation. We want you to come out of your house and participate with us… Lot never tried to force his lifestyle on them, he never even brought that up.’
He added, ‘They are trying to force their lifestyle on him, come out and have sex with us, have to participate. They’re going to force participation and that’s what we’re seeing around the country.’
In the interview he also cited a similar story from Judges 19 to warn that it becomes ‘unsafe when the homosexual agenda takes over a city.’
The show’s host David Barton added that efforts to pass nondiscrimination legislation to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity are nothing more than attempts to legalize discrimination against Christians and to ‘divorce’ them from their faith.
‘Any time you talk about nondiscrimination, what you are saying is discriminating against people of faith…
‘Whether you have the Abortion Nondiscrimination Act, whether you have the Employment Nondiscrimination Act, whether you have a nondiscrimination ordinance, every one of those has turned out to be a major club by which you can beat back people of faith and their beliefs and their convictions. So whenever you hear nondiscrimination anything in the last 15 years, you can be assured that becomes a legal weapons by which to divorce you from your faith and make you bow down to what they want and their viewpoints.’
