Subject: Homosexual Soulforce Org Blames Christian Teaching For Deaths
Of Gays Because Gay Man "Contemplated" Suicide At Southern
This headline goes beyond sarcasm to falsehood. The article does
NOT state that the man contemplated suicide while at the Southern
Baptist Convention. I am sure you were intentional in your wording,
using a dangling modifier on purpuse, but I expect better of even you,
John, in promoting your causes.
New England Conference
Editor's note: Yup,
you caught me! The headline is accurate if you read the story.
"At SBC convention modifies the main verb "blames."
The notion of blaming
historic Christian morality for the suicidal thoughts of immoral
people is absurd and dishonest. You don't see Christians blaming
immoral practitioners of sin for the suicides of orthodox
Christians. Next thing you know Christians will be blamed for
the burning of first century Rome and thus, justifying their
persecution and execution.
Did you write
Soulforce about their dishonesty?
