While some Christian leaders in America struggle to take a clear and straightforward position on last week’s Supreme Court decision on the corruption of marriage, and others stay completely silent on the issue, Rush Limbaugh cuts through all the verbal clutter and states the case plainly. Here’s the record of a brief call to his radio program yesterday.
RUSH: Macomb County in Michigan. This is Sue. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hi.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. Thanks so much for your show and everything you do. My question is, since the Supreme Court made their ruling, I’d like to ask you how many gays do you think will be demanding to be married in a mosque?
RUSH: I don’t think any.
CALLER: And why might that be?
RUSH: Well, the truth of the matter is that the gay community in America does not see militant Islam as discriminating against them.
CALLER: That’s true.
RUSH: Militant Islamists have not denied them happiness and good times and getting married and all. It’s Christians. It’s Christians. You might say, “But do they not know that homosexuals are put to death in Muslim countries?” Well, but it’s not happening in America. We don’t live in those countries.
RUSH: They’re not gonna go. They’re scared. They’re not gonna go into a mosque and demand marriage. It’s not what this is about. This is not designed to take down Islam. The target’s not Islam. The target is not religion per se. The target is Christians. And I am glad you called, because it’s an excellent point.
There, he said it: “The target is Christians.” To say it even more precisely, the target is Christians because the target is Christ. This is Psalm 2:1-3. It’s that simple.
Why should a radio talk show host be able to see so clearly what is apparently eluding so many Christian leaders? If all Christian leaders in America had been speaking up for the sanctity of marriage, we would not have a situation where 2-3% of the population got their way in all 50 states.
