Friends, I need to find the attribution for the following:
Al Mohler was being interviewed by a secular journalist. “Why are conservative Christians so hung up on homosexuality?” asked the journalist. “I don’t know that we are,” replied the Christian leader. “You’re the one who keeps bringing it up!”
I’m positive Al Mohler said this, but I can’t get the word-for-word quote because I cannot find the source. A friend who listens to Mohler’s podcasts remembers it, too. It was likely in “Thinking in Public” (which I listen to) or “The Briefing” (which my friend listens to). I do believe it was audio, not an article. And it may be as much as six years old (?). It’s definitely not recent. I think it may go back to the controversy over Lisa Miller’s Newsweek cover story in 2008.
I’ve searched Mohler’s website. I’ve contacted his office (no reply yet). Does anyone else remember this, and can you point me to the source? I need it for the new book my team is writing at BJU Press.
