You Won't Believe This One

"The Rev. R. Albert Mohler Jr., ever-controversial president of Kentucky's Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, has stirred debate by asserting that it's 'an absolute revolt against God's design' if husbands and wives purposely avoid bearing children...To him, raising children is both a God-given duty and "one of the most crucial opportunities for the making of saints...Following Southern Baptist style, Mohler based his case on the Bible, saying it teaches that "marriage, sex and children are part of one package. To deny any part of this wholeness is to reject God's intention in creation - and his mandate revealed in the Bible.""

Live your life the way he says or you are going to Hell, right? Do I even need to comment on this? Don't we all know how crazy he is? The real problem here is that there are people who listen to him, and sadly, respect him.

The "it's all about making babies" argument is mission-critical to opposing same-sex marriage. Why shouldn't we expect hyper-extremists such as this to start crawling out from under their assorted rocks?

The real problem is with more "mainstream" purveyors of the same gobbledygook, such as Maggie Gallager.
