Jars of Clay Frontman Comes Out in Support of Homosexual ‘Marriage’
In a series of assertive Tweets yesterday, Dan Haseltine of the popular band Jars of Clay took to his Twitter account and came out in support of homosexual 'marriage,' citing that he does not "particularly care about Scripture's stance on what is 'wrong.'"
Haseltine, who is the lead singer of Jars of Clay and whose band became famous for its Christian-themed music, posted to his Twitter account on Wednesday: "Not meaning to stir things up BUT... is there a non-speculative or non 'slippery slope' reason why gays shouldn't marry? I don't hear one."
"I'm trying to make sense of the conservative argument. But it doesn't hold up to basic scrutiny. Feels akin to women's suffrage. I just don't see a negative effect to allowing gay marriage. No societal breakdown, no war on traditional marriage. Anyone?" he went on to argue.
"I don't think Scripture 'clearly' states much of anything regarding morality," Haseltine stated.
According to Matthew 19:4-5, Jesus defined marriage in referring back to Genesis 2:24, "...Have ye not read, that He which made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, 'For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?'"
Scripture also addresses homosexual behavior in both the Old and New Testaments, warning that immoral sexual activity will lead to death and eternal damnation.
