"Knowing The Truth" with Pastor Kevin Boling is a live, call-in radio program providing Doctrinal Dialog, Cultural Commentary and Insightful Interviews with some of today's foremost Christian authors and leaders.
Last week, in a article on Christian Post entitled "Obama Supports Gay Marriage", Evan Lenow blogged:
"On the heels of the referendum vote in North Carolina on Tuesday, President Obama came out yesterday in support of gay marriage in an interview with ABC News. Despite the fact that many referendum votes on gay marriage have resulted in huge margins of victories for supporters of traditional marriage (the NC vote was 61%–39% in favor of the marriage amendment), the President has reached his conclusions on the basis of personal experience."
President Obama had the following to say regarding the evolution of his position:
"I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don't Ask Don't Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married"
Another interesting element of the interview is that the President recognizes his departure the historic Christian position on homosexuality. He states: "
"You know, we are both practicing Christians and obviously this position may be considered to put us at odds with the views of others but, you know, when we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is, not only Christ sacrificing himself on our behalf, but it’s also the Golden Rule, you know, treat others the way you would want to be treated"
On today's program, I will speak with Joe Dallas, past president of Exodus International.
During the program we will refer to to books that Joe has writte on the subject of homosexuality - The Gay Gospel? and The Complete Christian Guide To Understanding Homosexuality. You can find out more about Joe and his ministry at www.JoeDallas.com
