Former NBA basketball star Magic Johnson spoke out earlier this week in support of his gay son E.J. Johnson.
In an interview with TMZ.com (video below) Magic Johnson said: "I told him, 'We are here to support you. We are gonna love no matter who you are, what you do. We just want you to love yourself and also make sure that you have all the information.'"
However, Bill Johnson (pictured) of the Christian-based American Decency Association is upset that Johnson has given his gay son love and support.
Bill Johnson wrote on AmericanDecency.org:
Would you be proud to hear that your loved one had chosen a life that God calls an abomination? Maybe if you yourself had lived a life of reprobation – and yourself had lost the ability to think and act morally any longer.
If Magic Johnson says he’s proud of his son for being a homosexual does his statement make it right in your heart and mind?
...Therefore, God’s warnings in His word are reasonable and wise. God made us and He knows what’s best. He gives strong warnings regarding illicit sex: pre-marital sex, promiscuity, adultery, homosexuality, polygamy.
Why? Because He loves His people and doesn’t want His people to be damaged and to damage other people through that sin which degrades, addicts, destroys.
And the sin of homosexuality DOES damage! You could provide your accounts as well – multiple , multiple accounts but somehow we seldom to never hear these accounts. Do you? We just see Magic Johnson types with their “warm smiles” saying all is well and I’m proud. GAY PRIDE.
