If you didn’t know who Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr. is, he currently serves as the ninth president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He holds a Master of Divinity degree and the Doctor of Philosophy (in systematic and historical theology) from Southern Seminary. He has pursued additional study at the St. Meinrad School of Theology and has done research at Oxford University (England).
Mohler is articulate when it comes to cultural issues. In fact, Time.com called him the “reigning intellectual of the evangelical movement in the U.S”. It is good to know that there are able thinkers in the Christian tradition that can present their arguments in a respectable way. Even when it comes to the ‘supersensitive’ issues like Homosexuality and the Bible.
Mohler has recently written three posts on “what’s really at stake in the gay marriage debate?”
“Both sides in this debate understand that issues right at the core of human dignity are at stake. Each side understands that the decision on this question will shape the future of our civilization. And, make no mistake, both sides know that the children are watching.”
“Proponents of same-sex marriage now attempt to argue that the only opposition to legalized homosexual marriage comes from conservative Christians pushing a narrow theological agenda. They cannot possibly claim that conservative Christians control the vast majority of the world’s nations in which same-sex marriage is decidedly not legal.”
“When children acquire a language without the words “husband” or “wife,” they acquire a cultural knowledge that betrays the subversion of the central institution of civilization itself.”
