Evil is as evil does.
Florida Baptist pastor Tom Ascol—who delivered the invocation at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ second inauguration—support’s Uganda’s death penalty for being gay.
Ascol took to Twitter the new home of hate and propaganda to respond to Ted Cruz’s criticism of Uganda’s law, which imposes the death penalty for “aggravated homosexuality.”
Ascol cited a King James interpretation of an Old Testament verse from Leviticus 20:13:
“If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.”
“Was this law God gave to His old covenant people ‘horrific and wrong’?”
Ascol was also involved in authoring The Dallas Statement, which denounced same-sex attraction and same-sex marriage as against “God’s design.” The statement rejected the acceptance of LGBT+ Christians and dismissed gender fluidity, intersectionality, radical feminism, and critical race theory as inconsistent with biblical teachings.
