Voddie Baucham is a preacher at Grace Family Baptist Church in Spring, Texas.

I do not know Voddie Baucham, but I would gladly stand with him in agreement, Homosexuality is not a civil rights issue. Those who think it so are like a woman whose husband once committed adultery in the passion of his unbelief. Once that man found forgiveness in Christ, his wife still holds the old sin against him as leverage to achieve her own ends. (The analogy could obviously be flipped in gender.) For all who struggle with the sin of Homosexuality, there is grace and forgiveness for you just like there was for me in my thieving, lying, adulterous ways. Behold, He makes all things new. Praise Jesus for his great grip of grace.
