Baptist Group Endorses Death Penalty For Gays In Statement Against Repeal Of DADT

The Unregistered Baptist Fellowship has issued a press release opposing the repeal of DADT because the Bible calls for the death penalty for homosexuality. A snippet via Christian Newswire:
Therefore, because God's word condemns same sex physical relationships (Leviticus 18:22, 20:13; Romans 1:24-32), calling them abomination, and considering them a capitol crime against society and nature worthy of the death penalty.

Be it resolved, That we insist upon enforcement of the law (Section 654, Title 10) by eliminating the Clinton Administration's policy known as "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," which is inconsistent with the 1993 law (Section 654, Title 10). That the question about homosexuality that used to be on induction forms prior to January 1993 be restored. That we oppose any legislative attempt to repeal the 1993 homosexual conduct law in Congress.
The UBF describes itself as a "fellowship of Baptist pastors, evangelists, missionaries and laymen." They say they will not obey any law "opposed to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ."
