In a letter to the JNF earlier this month, the Southern Jewish Resource Network for Gender and Sexual Diversity (SOJOURN) called on the organization to reverse their decision to honor Stanley, whom they called an "anti-gay Baptist preacher." "Dr.Stanley has a sordid history of virulent homophobic statements and actions," the letter reads."He has publicly called AIDS God's punishment for America's acceptance of homosexuality and called homosexuality 'destructive behavior.' Dr.Stanley is an offensive and unsuitable choice for the Tree of Life Award." The elder Stanley has been preaching in Atlanta since 1971, and for over half a century has dedicated his life to the spreading of the gospel.in Atlanta - an event he was slated to attend tomorrow.Criticism swelled over the selection of Stanley due to his Biblical views on homosexuality - pulled from his sermons and many written works -which had become a "concern" for members of the local Jewish and LGBT communities.
There is not consensus in this room when it comes to gay marriage," he said.
But his father, Charles, has preached for decades that consensus isn't relevant - it's the Word of God that is true and unchanging.
His dedication to accurately preaching God's word is what caused his recognition to come into question, and ultimately, caused his forfeiture of the JNF award.
After founding In Touch nearly 40 years ago, his sermons are broadcast world-wide, he has authored more than 60 books and reaches many through his ministry's website.
But according to SOJOURN, his life's calling amounts to nothing due to his Biblical stance on homosexuality, and the JNF choosing him as the recipient of their Tree of Life Award was a blunder.
