Kansas Pastor Says the Government Should Kill Gays: AUDIO

More anti-gay 'Christianism', this time from the Heartland, sourced by Jeremy Hooper at Good as You.

KnappPastor Curtis Knapp of New Hope Baptist Church in Seneca, Kansas thinks gays should be put to death:

"They should be put to death. That's what happened in Israel. That's why homosexuality wouldn't have grown in Israel. It tends to limit conversions. It tends to limit people coming out of the closet. — 'Oh, so you're saying we should go out and start killing them, no?' — I'm saying the government should. They won't but they should. [You say], 'oh, I can't believe you you're horrible. You're a backwards neanderthal of a person.' Is that what you're calling scripture? Is God a neanderthal backwards.. in his morality. Is it his word or not? If it's his word, he commanded it. It's his idea, not mine. And I'm not ashamed of it."


From a Sermon dated 5/27/2012 called Homosexuality and the Need for National Revival.

  2. This ass of a man should be arrested immediately for inciting violence. And his church should have their non-profit status revoked immediately.

  3. Israel kills gays?

    It seems the haters are becoming more and more daring. How long before the lynching gangs are marching in the streets?

  5. Massachusetts gay person says the government should kill pastors. And since gay people pay taxes and pastors don't, I think the government is a lot more likely to take my advice than his.

  6. Wow, all I can say is wow. Whoever ordained him needs to revoke it.

  7. He left something out. The Bible demands death for:

    People who don't listen to priests (Deuteronomy 17:12)

    Sorceresses (Exodus 22:17), fortunetellers (Leviticus 20:27), and false prophets (Deuteronomy 13:1-5, Deuteronomy 18:20-22, Zechariah 13:3)

    Men who lie with other men as with a woman (Leviticus 20:13)

    People who work on the Sabbath (Exodus 31:12-15)

    Striking (Exodus 21:15) or cursing (Leviticus 20:9) your parents

    Adultery and fornication (Leviticus 20:10, Leviticus 21:9, Deuteronomy 22:20-21)

    Blasphemy (Leviticus 24:10-16)

  9. Give 'em enough rope...

  10. Adulterers? Kids who curse their parents? Women who aren't virgins on their wedding night? Odd how he is blowing off that scripture.

    Btw, is anyone else finding this a bit calculated? It's too much of a coincidence we have two different pastors within a week or so calling for Nazi style killing of homosexuals. Somethings up and this has The Family written all over it. You know, start government sanctioned killings of gays in Uganda, watch it spread over the world.and then finally start it at home. We are only fooling ourselves if we don't think we are beyond concentration camps. My bet is wityin another week we will be hearing from another pastor.

  11. Preemptively killing people like him should be classified as self-defense

  12. What truly is the saving grace of such vermin? Every single one of these Neanderthal freaks are card carrying members of the GOP. You couldn't wish better "friends" on your political enemies!

  13. Who the f*ck ARE these people, and where are they all coming from??

    So he's basically saying it's god's idea to kill gays, not his own. Wow, that's a new low! But then he wants the gov't to do his dirty work...pussy!

  14. Well someone certainly craves some attention attention.

  15. FTFA: "'Oh, I can't believe you you're horrible. You're a backwards neanderthal of a person.' Is that what you're calling scripture?"

    Yes, you bloody idiot, that's EXACTLY what I'm saying. I'm saying that your book of fairy tales was "written" by a bunch of semi-literate nomadic goat herders whose "moral" code has about as much to do with modern society as their bronze-age tools have to do with rocketry. Anybody stupid enough to follow its diktats should be kept away from sharp objects, and prevented from leaving the house when it's raining out so they don't drown from gawping wide-eyed and mouth agape at the water falling from the sky. I'm saying that your religion is a mental illness, AT BEST, and is a poison in the body politic.

    In short: go DIAF.

  16. @Jim
    It's just the logical extension of their other standard excuse: "*I* am not judging/condemning gay people. God is."

  17. lest we and the world forget
    and many don't even know that we were once put behind fences. Once before by a little group known as the nazi's, murdered, tortured, starved, and experimented on; and we're still here. So pastor if anyone belongs behind a fence I would say its you. Prison fences for promoting encouraging and instigating; starvation and murder of human beings. so pastor worley to you I say, been there done that got the pink triangle to prove it, not to mention history books, museums, and hundreds of thousands of WW2 veterans. So pastor worley your secret is out it's time to turn in your cross for a swastika fly your true colors.

  18. I don't think he's correct about Israel. Supposedly over 61% of the population there supports same-sex marriage. And, Israel has allowed gays to openly serve in the military for awhile now. Although... I guess they could purposely be using them for cannon fodder.

  19. He is probably speaking about ancient Israel. Back in the good old biblical times of Old Testament "justice"

    Posted by: Steve | May 29, 2012 7:12:48 PM

  20. NC in the beginning of May had a vote for amendment one. NC has had many pastors publicly say kill gas, punch gay kids and the such. So foe us this is just another guy saying the same crap we have been hearing and seeing on church signs for months.

  21. I don't wanna overplay this card, but he looks like a homo to me.

  22. Someone has been banging on the walls and all the cockroaches are scurrying out.

  23. Israel has promoted itself world wide as a MAJOR gay vacation destination.

    The pastor is as stupid as he is evil.

    Posted by: David Ehrenstein | May 29, 2012 7:27:07 PM

  24. You guys act like his views are uncommon. The fact is they are very common, and the votes on gay-related ballot initiatives, just reflect how common they are. A very large percentage of people agree with the pastor. Sad, but true.

    Posted by: Jake | May 29, 2012 7:32:59 PM

  25. yeah, he is talking about ancient biblical Israel during the Old Testament times.
