Sarah Palin’s hometown newspaper, the Frontiersman, which has been publishing in the Mat-Su Valley (where Wasilla is located) since 1947, ran an opinion piece this week by a local pastor with a very definite opinion about the Antichrist’s sexual orientation:
Indeed, it should not be surprising that the one who is against everything Biblical and Christian should be a partaker of so great a sin; there is no greater way to reject the Creator than to reject your gender and his design for it. And at what other time have we seen such perversion come out of the closets onto our streets, threatening violence if we do not accept their ways?
So the Antichrist will be a homosexual? Not exactly. The good reverend wants us to know that the correct and decent Christian term for homosexuality is actually sodomy:
While the word “homosexual” is not in the Bible, the behavior of those who practice homosexuality, and God’s estimation of them, very definitely is. When the word came into existence I cannot tell you, but what we can say for sure is that when Noah Webster published his first dictionary in 1828, it was not included. This means that homosexuality is a modern word invented to replace the word Noah Webster did include, sodomy, defined as a crime against nature. This is historical revisionism in action.
