Al Mohler, the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, has equated homosexuality with cancer.

In a op-ed posted at LifeSiteNews, Mohler blames “pervasive school curricula” for undermining the Christian worldview and promoting “homosexuality as a legitimate and attractive lifestyle option.”

“Inevitably, the schools have become crucial battlegrounds for the culture war,” he wrote. “The Christian worldview has been undermined by pervasive curricula that teach moral relativism, reduce moral commandments to personal values, and promote homosexuality as a legitimate and attractive lifestyle option.”

Liberal churches “argue that to tell a homosexual he is a sinner is uncompassionate and intolerant. This is like arguing that a physician is intolerant because he tells a patient she has cancer. But, in the culture of political correctness, this argument holds a powerful attraction. Biblical Christians know that compassion requires telling the truth, and refusing to call sin something sinless. To hide or deny the sinfulness of sin is to lie, and there is no compassion in such a deadly deception.”
