Dave Daubenmire sounded a lot like a Christian Reconstructionist fascist in a recent video, saying that as soon as Christians accepted that it was okay not to imprison people for sodomy, same-sex marriage became inevitable. He doesn’t actually endorse stoning gays explicitly, but he does say that God’s standards never change:
As Daubenmire explained, once Christians compromised on God’s standard of “no homosexuality [and] sodomy is a crime” by agreeing to allow gay people to “come out of the closet and be recognized,” it became impossible to stop gay marriage.
“The church is rot with compromise,” Daubenmire said. “Values we used to stand for we now compromise because why? We think maybe God was a little bit crazy back in those old days when he made some of those rules … Compromise isn’t a good thing. How do we know that? Because the Lord himself said, ‘I change not. I’m the same yesterday, today, and forever.’ He is a solid rock. He doesn’t compromise. And neither should we on values that matter. Compromise is deadly, folks.”
So if God is the same forever, that means his command to stone gay people to death remains in force, right?
