Kansas Pastor Who Says Govt. Should Kill Gays Pleads His Case: VIDEO

KnappCNN

Curtis Knapp, the Kansas-based pastor who claimed the government should kill all gay people, sat down with CNN to plead his case, and most of his arguments are pretty predictable.

According to Knapp's discriminatory logic, the government cracks down on pedophilia and incest, so LGBT people should be punished, as well.

"We punish pedophilia. We punish incest. We punish polygamy and various things. It's only homosexuality that is lifted out as an exemption," he said. He also said that he doesn't actually believe gay people should be killed, only that we be "saved."

But in a bizarre twist, Knapp told the cable news channel that George W. Bush was too tolerant of gay people, thus setting the stage for President Obama's support for marriage equality. Are we talking about the same George W. Bush?

Watch Knapp's remarks AFTER THE JUMP.

  4. Well, it took him about 24 hours to start back-pedaling...what a surprise. Thank goodness for U-Tube. I get the feeling that there isn't anything some crazy person won't do for a few minutes of fame....even this.
    Of course we give it to him. On the flip side, I wonder how many good christians he alienated with these awful remarks...regardless of his motives. Give them rope...watch them hang...themselves of course!

  6. These BIGOTED lunatics seem to all come from these 2 HATE groups:

    BAPTIST church
    Fundamental church

    Yup, the American Taliban.
    Time to start putting the pressures on these NOT Christian haters by yanking their tax-exempt status, starting federal investigations for inciting violence against GLBT Americans and suing them for various violations.

  9. Giving such a NAZI a mere minute to express his crazy hatred is encouraging more ignorant nuts to feel entitled to spew their madness and convert that filth into “an opinion deserving of being heard”. Nope.

  11. In truth, wingnuts like this do us all a service by making the fringe minority religious right look like total loonies. It generates sympathy for the LGBT community amongst more normal majority mainstream citizens. Go wingnut, go!

  12. How ignorant that some "religious" people pick a part out of the Bible, and choose to take it literally! The Bible was written so long ago and has had so many translations. The laws back in biblical times were based on what the profits of the time were saying, and were often based on dreams. What this guy is saying is justt plain stupid! And what should scare us all is that "religious" people like this guy is teaching children this stuff!

  13. here's the reality - it's people like this man, and the Santorum's of the country, the Bachmanns, the Palins, the Ted Robertsons, the Gallaghers, the Brian Browns who are responsible for the deaths of people like Tyler Clementi.

    Dharun Ravi's bratty bigotry would have meant nothing to Clementi in a culture and country that is not overwhelmingly anti-gay - the problem is not the insecure ignorant young people , the problem is the legion of grown-adult bigots keeping bigoted culture alive and well.

  14. My my, so many opinions, so few Christians. Those who actually look into the sermon that Pastor Curtis Knapp of the New Hope Baptist Church in Seneca, Kan preached will see that while he is pointing out something very specific in scripture. He is not advocating that homosexuals be hunted down and killed, only that a righteous government would impose the death penalty for homosexual behavior. Now taken by itself that does seem outrageous. But the fact is that a righteous government would also have the death penalty for adultery and fornication as well as several other crimes.

    But here is the problem. For a righteous government to exist, it would have to have been established by a righeous citizenry, hard to come by in the best of times, and certainly impossible today. This is one of the arguments against the death penalty for who has the moral authority to pass such a sentence?

    God does of course, but even as we say that, history is replete with examples of man attempting to usurp God's judgement seat. So where God may judge righteously, man should tread lightly. We must also remember that God, whose judgement is to be feared, has provided a remedy by which we may completely escape so terrible a judgement, through the shed blood and cleansing sacrifice of his Son Jesus the Christ.
