A very senior Evangelical in the USA has resigned after being taken to task over views he expressed in a radio interview on NPR. Rev. Richard Cizik was on the Fresh Air radio program on December 2, and expressed his support for same sex unions and that he was closer to supporting same sex marriage. Cizak was Vice President for the National Association of Evangelicals, (NAE) vice president of governmental affairs.
"It was time for him to go," Tom Minnery, a Focus on the Family senior vice president, said Thursday. "He no longer represents the view of evangelicalism. He has not represented those views for some time."
It seems Cizek freaked out evangelical activists due to his environmental focus. This they felt was a distraction from more important issues such as abortion and gay marriage.
It seems queers getting married is a bigger threat to the world than global warming ever could be. I just can't believe i could be that dangerous to the world. I'm kinda impressed! It looks like the God fearing pros were just looking for a reason to dump this guy...see the evangelical set go off their rocker here
