CNN had a fantastic article by Albert Mohler addressing the question as to why there is a focus on homosexuality. I appreciated CNN’s presentation of Mohler’s article. Make sure you read the whole thing as Mohler addresses some of the questions you may have, or have been asked, about when the topic of the Bible and homosexuality comes up (things like slavery, polygamy, eating shellfish, etc.).
Here’s Mohler’s concise and clear answer as to why Christians speak about homosexuality:
Why are Christians so concerned with homosexuality? In the first place, that question is answered by the simple fact that it is the most pressing moral question of our times. Christians must be concerned about adultery, pornography, injustice, dishonesty and everything the Bible names as sin. But when my phone rings with a call from a reporter these days, the question I am asked is never adultery or pornography. It is about homosexuality.
