11 Lies from a Christian Author’s 1978 Book About the Problems with Homosexuality

Last year, for some reason I still can’t remember, I came across a book called The Unhappy Gays by Tim LaHaye (who later wrote the Left Behind series).

Imagine all the hateful, horrible things conservative Christians say about gay people today… and then imagine how much worse it was in 1978. That’s what’s in this book.

Over the weekend, I finally read through the whole thing… and I’m ready to bang my head against a wall now.

Mississippi Con Demonstrates You Can Use the Bible to Justify Anything, Even Sexual Assault of a Pre-Teen Girl

John Kirk Councilman, 45, already had a conviction for attempted murder on his record, for which he was out on probation. Then he was arrested and indicted again in Jackson County, Mississippi, for sexually assaulting a minor — under cover of Scripture no less.

Councilman began sexually touching the girl when she was 12 years old.

When he used the Bible to study with the child, he justified the acts, Stevens said, by “manipulating the words of the Bible to make some kind of sense of what he was doing to her.” … The detective said Councilman touched the girl sexually while the two were looking at the Bible verses and also studied the Bible with her before having oral sex with her and forcing her to perform oral sex on him.

Eat Your Heart Out, Ken Ham

The comic strip B.C. was created by Johnny Hart, who often pushed Christian messages in his work. That still seems to be the case even though Hart passed away and his grandsons produce the strip now.

But, for the life of me, I can’t understand today’s comic:
