Watch: NOM Pastor Speaks in Tongues to Save Marriage from Gays


The National Organization for Marriage has a whole cast of characters to accompany them on their 23-city hate-a-palooza tour.

In addition to victims of imaginary bullying, they have Pastor Jay Stirnemann, who used his own special language in Providence, RI to ward off the evil gays who are destroying the world for wanting to get married.

  1. In the words of the immortal Motormouth Maybelle, "OOOOOh papa Toony, we got us a Loony!"

  2. I'm not impressed. You can get the same nonsense from a dead type generator such as

    "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Sed vestibulum dignissim tempor. Aenean tellus lacus, laoreet sed condimentum eget, aliquet."

  3. I wonder if we'll see this clip on FoxNews?

  4. The Bible in I Corinthians clearly says that the spiritual gift of speaking in tongues must always be accompanied by someone who has the gift of interpreting what is said. So if Pastor Jay did not have an interpreter present, he went against the clear teachings of the Bible!

    I'm shocked, shocked to see this kind of blatant disregard for Biblical standards!

  5. If spouting gibberish is a sacred experience, proof of holiness, then every madhouse in the world must really be a cathedral.

  6. Awesome! When will the MSS start showing this tape? Nothing says Middle American Values™ like some lunatic frothing at the mouth like a character out of a WIlliam Peter Blatty novel...

  7. What an excellent day for an exorcism.

  8. Yesterday they were HORRIFIED that peaceful gay protestors turned up to protest their hatefest - oh noes - and now THIS?

    Are you fucking kidding me? Will the snake handlers arrive tomorrow?

    Point. Laugh. NOM suck. Not in a good way.

  9. What separates this from Voodoo?

  10. I really, REALLY hope Pastor Ooh Ka Da Ba Hakha Do Shata Baha, Lohhhh-rio Goboba Sonama Hakataya Masah shows up when NOM comes to Wisconsin.

    Jesus might put a few choice words in my mouth for him, too.

    I seriously can't believe that there are people in the 21st century who believe that stringing random phonemes together somehow constitutes religious revelation. God bless America -- ?!?

  11. How can you take those people seriously.

  13. Is it me or is this fellow sporing a brown shirt?

  14. It's funny to think that with a minor shift in history, these bigots could have very well been standing on the steps of political buildings DEMANDING that if gays want to live as couples, they should HAVE to get married legally and live in monogamous, committed relationships.

  15. Speaking of fantasy, it is appropriate, somehow, that the Mormon slot on NOM’s board of directors is held by a famous science fiction and fantasy writer (Orson Scott Card).

  16. And see the silly woman next to him nodding her head, pretending that she understands! This man is mentally ill

  17. The good news is that with a national healthcare program this poor, delusional and unwell man will be able to see a psychiatrist, receive treatment, put an end to his hallucinations and lead a normal (well, relatively normal) life and fully partake in society.

  18. Unfortunately, this is the sort of thing that goes on every Sunday (at least) in the Pentacostal churches, and it is hardly always directed against gay rights.

    I view it as deliberate fraud or a failure of the nervous system.

    Ether way, I want to stay far away from this nonsense.

    But then I am an Episcopalian, and that denomination has rarely let its religion get the better of common sense.

  19. Why these people always attack two things - gay marriages and abortion? Why not divorces etc. because they are also denied in the Bible (OT)? Hypocrisy stands very strongly with these "religious" groups. Take one thing forget another.
    These entire charismatic movement in US seems so differ from what I used to see. I don't know how to react to it.

  20. looks as if the equality folks way outnumbered the NOMers at this event.

  21. this is like a Rob Zombie movie without the blood.

  22. Biblical scholars (with their feet grounded in logic and history) know that "tongues" were "languages" (foreign)--not gibberish. What a nutcase... This is why you can't take the Right seriously--it has people like this at its core.

  23. Aren't these the same people who complain that immigrants don't speak English?

  25. This is basically how all supernaturalist faith looks to me...admittedly, it's pretty funny.

    "Shambalalaloolalalalala" "What's he sayin'?" "he's sayin' we're all getting ice cream afterward". I bet they'd crine at the thought that they're anything like certain...other faiths...
