President Obama spoke out in favor of LGBT rights during his visit to Kenya, which of course has the Christian right frothing in rage. Richard Land, who was too extreme even for the Southern Baptist Convention, says that he is advocating for “extreme gay rights” abroad.
In an interview with Newsmax TV on Monday, former Southern Baptist Convention policy head Richard Land, agreed with Graham’s comments, accusing the president of promoting “extreme gay rights” by speaking out against Kenya’s law, which punishes homosexuality by up to 14 years in prison.
Not only does it punish Kenyan gay people to 14 years in prison, for non-Kenyans arrested for being gay, the punishment is death. But opposing prison or death is support for “extreme gay rights.” Only in the minds of a theocratic bigot.
