    This is real life. Get used to it (being horrified) and learn how to love this guy. Nothing is ever going to change for the better if we don't learn to love ourselves, and then, in turn, love the people who think gay kids should be beat up.

    I saw this today and posted it on my facebook wall. Disgusting. I am literally appalled by the congregation cheering and agreeing with him as he spews his hate.

    Ive said this in a couple other threads with this story:

    How many other sunday sermons around the country have similar sentiments, but never get recorded, and not requiring public apologies.

    Maybe we should all start spending some Sunday mornings in conservative churches secretly recording.

    Fuck that. I'd rather see him die. I have no love for him whatsoever.

    Well that's not a very Christian thing to say. Or is it? icon_eek.gif

    Better yet, spend some time in Sunday morning services beating the fuck out of anti-gay (err, closeted) pastors.

    Love him? I'd love to beat the crap out of him for all the helpless kids he's hurt - I'll show him what a real man - a real gay man can do to beat the ever loving crap out of him.

    He sounds like a rational person with an enlightened attitude and informed cogitative opinions whose intentions are to uplift his fellow man and inspire altruism.







    Oh wait, no, he's just full of shit.

    But I do love myself, as a gay man. What I hate is this homophobe urging physical violence against innocent children, who may not even be gay, but rather, who merely fit into his warped stereotypical view of what a gay child is, and what a masculine child is.

    In some jurisdictions his urging of violence against children might be a crime. But given where he is, and the current Right Wing mantra that objecting to hate speech from the pulpit amounts to a "war on religion", I have no expectation that this nut case will be reined-in anytime soon.

    That guy (the pastor) is the very antithesis of what a follower of Christ should be.

    Matthew 18:4-6Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

    And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

    But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.


    His followers will likely be in danger of judgment for listening to his evil, twisted teaching... and he will bear the greater judgment for causing them, and even more so, the children who have become the victims of irrational, hate crimes... because of his perverse and false teachings.

    I posted it on another topic, to demonstrate why many gay people are not tolerant of christianity, and why justly so.
    Did anyone stand up and walk out like they did in Dan Savage's vid?

    intrigued,

    -Doug


    No I haven't looked at them all. One was enough, thanks.

    What I think is more shocking is we see this very same abuse in our own communities, we see it all the time here at RJ with the liberal pack of wolves.

    I would love some really good - non-fem gay muscle dude from this site to punch this guy in the face and see how much of a man he really is.

    That is all.

    Couldn't stomach listening to all of it.

    Where's that "Christian conservative" guy that started that "Why are gay people intolerant" thread?

    This guy is proof positive that this strain of American "christianity" is a slightly kinder, gentler version of the Taliban.
