This program was greatly restrained in dealing with the issue of homosexuality, especially as it pertained to the second segment of the broadcast, as it showed how there appears to be no depth that is off limits to this perversion.
What this program proved is how openly Romans chapter 1 is being acted out in society today. It describes man being vain in his imaginations, his darkened heart, being fools, the dishonoring of bodies between themselves, worshiping the creature more than the creator, men leaving the natural use of the woman while burning in lust toward one another, and more. This portion of Scripture also describes how God gave them up to uncleanness, vile affections and a reprobate mind. This is exactly what we’re seeing today.
Peter LaBarbera, the founder and president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality and assistant director of Mass Resistance, joined Jim to lay out the evidence.
To help listeners understand the global aspect of the LGBT movement, Jim noted a release from the Williams Institute of the UCLA School of Law. It was produced as part of a LGBT Intersex Global Development Partnership. They indicated that there’s a new global acceptance index that ranks 141 nations around the world concerning LGBT issues. In 80 of those nations, 57% have experienced increases in acceptance. 33% had a decline while 11% stayed the same. So as you can see, over half of the world’s nations are taking steps to be affirming of the LGBTQ+ lifestyle.
From there, Jim had Peter comment on a number of stories related to this issue that just came out this week. They included:
