Seminary Compares Gay Sex To The Second Coming, Antigay Backlash Ensues

church-condom-277x300At least one antigay Christian is not pleased with a recent stunt pulled by a seminary based in Chicago.

At the 2015 Wild Goose Festival, an annual music fest held in Hot Springs, NC, each July, members from the Chicago Theological Seminary handed out free rainbow condoms with the following instructions: “Chicago Theological Seminary, Take Two (For the second coming!).”

Now, Christian blogger and self-proclaimed “teller of America’s betrayal” Bethany Blankley is taking personal offense to the condoms in a bizarre new op-ed.

“The text blatantly suggests Jesus Christ’s Second Coming relates to one needing two condoms for multiple partners or multiple orgasms,” she writes. “Alternatively, the ‘Christian’ seminary is likening the Second Coming of Christ to gay sex.”

(As anyone who’s actually had gay sex will likely tell you, this isn’t a far off comparison. But we digress.)

Blankley then goes on to accuse the seminary of blasphemy and heresy, and of exhibiting “an obvious representation of hatred toward God and His Word.”

“Only an apostate Christian and apostate church could celebrate or encourage gay sex or orgies,” she continues. “Only an apostate Christian and apostate church could advocate being ‘LGBTQ friendly.’ Apostasy is inherently anti-God.”

Then she spews a bunch of random quotes from the Bible before hectoring, “Jesus Christ’s apostles clearly admonished new Christians to stop participating in sexual depravity, specifically gay sex and orgies, because it was not of God!”

(Hmmm. We checked with an expert and, actually, that isn’t true. But whatev.)

Blankley concludes by writing: “Jesus Christ’s return is infinitely more important and incomparable to a joke printed on a condom package. Genuine Christians, who have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, joyfully and anxiously await his return.”

Don’t hold your breath, Bethany.
