Right Wing Watch has the audio and transcript of a sermon by John MacArthur, Pastor of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California. The sermon was aired on James Dobson’s radio program and it claims that America has been abandoned by God:
The first thing that happens in a nation when it is abandoned by God is a sexual revolution. Moral sexual perversion, pornographic desire describes the general character of the culture. When a society is abandoned by God, it operates out of its own perverse sexual passion without restraint. The first thing you look for in a society if you are trying to discern whether God has abandoned that society is whether or not that society has gone through a sexual revolution so that illicit sex, adultery, every form of immorality is accepted as normal in that society…
God gave them over, not just to passions that are explicable because they’re men and women, but to inexplicable, degrading passions for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural. You know a society has been abandoned by God when it celebrates lesbian sex.
If only his followers would abandon it, we’d be on the right track.
