About a month ago I reported that EthicsDaily.com, a Baptist internet service, named Al Gore "Baptist of the Year." Gore has recently demonstrated his ethical credentials by coming out in open support of so-called "gay marriages." I say "so-called" because first, there is nothing gay about homosexuality. Gay is a word that denotes joy and happiness; homosexuality is a culture of gloom, doom and death. And marriage is not open to redefinition. I know that the great Mr. Gore seems to have taken credit for creating the internet and has with equal justification claimed that men are causing the planet to heat up, thus threatening the world with impending disaster. But even such an evidently powerful man cannot redefine marriage. Even Gore wasn't around when the Creator made marriage what it was and is and ever must be, the union of a man and a woman. No matter what Gore, Nancy Pelosi, Ted Kennedy and others of their ilk say, the perverted sexual union of two men or two women cannot pass as marriage.
After his defeat for the presidency in 2000, Gore and wife Tipper released a book, Joined at the Heart: The Transformation of the American Family, that included profiles of homosexual couples as well as traditional families. In a 2006 speech Gore referred to the "gay marriage" ceremonies performed at San Francisco in early 2004, and said, "[S]ome reacted with hatred and anger. What I saw that was just the overwhelming love, the joy, the purity of the excitement that that love was being honored."
Now he has given us this gem of further ethical insight: "I think that gay men and women ought to have the same rights as heterosexual men and women -- to make contracts, to have hospital visiting rights, to join together in marriage, and I don't understand why it is considered by some people to be a threat to heterosexual marriage." I suspect that there is a lot more that Al Gore cannot see. The man is as blind as they come. What God's word calls "lust," "inordinate affection," and "evil concupiscence" Gore calls love. What the Bible says keeps a man out of heaven, Gore believes should be celebrated and sanctioned by law on earth. I say he believes all this because this is what he has said. Of course, he carefully refrained from saying any of this when he was running for President. He did not believe these things deeply enough to come out and tell the American people the truth about his positions. He is such an ethical Baptist that he did all he could to hide his pro-sodomite beliefs, at least until he could get elected.
