Thank God I'm Not a Liberal

Andy Stanley -- who I am yet to forgive for writing a book about community whose title completely ignored the wisdom of Dietrich Bonhoeffer (we do not create community: it comes to us as a gift) -- said some things in a sermon last week that got evangelicalism's dominican Al Mohler all hot and bothered. You can read what Mohler wrote here or just read Scot McKnight's summary of the situation here.

Mohler's piece reminded me of the classic Baptist joke:

Why are Baptists so against pre-marital sex?
They're afraid it might lead to dancing.

In light of Mohler's piece linked above, we can now add a variation especially for him:

Why is Al Mohler so against homosexualty?
He's afraid it might lead to liberalism.
