Facts

-- Predicts: “Finding a biological causation for homosexuality may also lead to the discovery of a ‘cure’ for the same phenomenon.

-- Says: “If a biological basis is found (for being gay), and if a prenatal test is then developed, and if a successful treatment to reverse the sexual orientation to heterosexual is ever developed, we would support its use as we should unapologetically support the use of any appropriate means to avoid sexual temptation and the inevitable effects of sin.”

-- Says telling gays that Jesus is the way "out of the homosexual lifestyle" is simply "Christian truth"; claims that an inaugural committee's decision to back away from a pastor who preaches that view constitutes "moral McCarthyism"

-- Said the repeal of the discriminatory Don’t Ask, Don’t tell would “present a clear and present threat to the religious liberty of those who wear the American uniform."

-- Claimed: “The earthquake in Haiti, like every other earthly disaster, reminds us that creation groans under the weight of sin and the judgment of God” 

-- Teaches that "any sexual expression outside of that heterosexual marriage relationship is illicit, immoral, and outlawed by God’s explicit command and law"

-- More teachings: "Homosexuality is linked directly to idolatry, for it is on the basis of their idolatry that God gave them up to their own lusts. Their hearts were committed to impurity, and they were degrading their own bodies by their illicit lusts. Their idolatry — exchanging the truth of God for a lie, and worshipping the creature rather than the Creator — led God to give them over to their degrading passions. From here, those given over to their degraded passions exchanged the natural use of sexual inter- course for that which God declared to be unnatural [literally, against nature]. 

-- Compares gays to people suffering from cancer: "Liberal churches have redefined compassion to mean that the church changes its message to meet modern demands. They argue that to tell a homosexual he is a sinner is uncompassionate [sic] and intolerant. This is like arguing that a physician is intolerant because he tells a patient she has cancer."
