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."

Listen, AFTER THE JUMP...

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

  1. I understand the outrage, but let's be real guys! A crazy, anti-gay, religious person said something that was crazy, anti-gay, and religious. Just be happy you had access to quality education and aren't trapped in the cult that is Christianity. Don't get too worked up, just LOL at these people that evolution forgot!

  3. He is part of the minority and as such, the MAJORITY should shut him up. Based on a 2010 Religion Study, only 50% of Americans are Christian with only 14.3% Evangelical/Conservative Protestant like this LUNATIC.

    Forget boycotts. Lawsuits and federal investigations of HATE CRIMES should be thrown at these crazies, making sure their HATE hurts them in their $$$pocket$$$book$$$.

  10. The bible says it so it's got to be true is his defense for this offensive hate speech? The bible also says it's ok to have slaves ....it also says not to mix different fabrics - i sure hope he wasn't wearing a polyester blend when he said that.

  12. There are Muslims and Jews who also hate us and see us as less than human. And there are atheists and agnostics too--I've met them. It surprised me. Maybe all Buddhists love us, but I haven't known that many.

    Hatred of homosexuals is rooted in irrational fear of difference, and people twist religion to institutionalize and fuel their hatred. If they didn't have their version of the Bible, or the Qu'ran, or the Torah, they'd find another way. Nazis in Germany may have needed to get a majority Christian electorate to vote for Hitler, but once in power they were variously anti-Christian, pseudo-Christian, Christian, atheist, neo-Pagan, etc. In other words: hate is hate. Maybe it can be cloaked in a religion, but it doesn't need it to thrive.

    We need to find and embrace our allies where we find them, whatever their religion. And we need to condemn and work against our enemies, regardless of their religion. We don't need to build arbitrary walls. We're a minority and always will be, and it will do us no good.

  13. Another example of good Christian values. Why is it taking so long for real practicing Christains to stand up and say these idiots do not represent real Christian values and certainly not all Christians. The longer they stay silent the longer they all get tarred with the same brush.

  15. @MICHAE: Thanks for expressing my sentiments to a "T". There is something very, very odd here and while we might scoff at these pastors, I can't help but feeling that these "outings" of such hateful pastors are no coincidence.

    But then, I'm paranoid and I've been shouting for years about the evangie-fundie syndrome; i.e. there are millions--repeat, MILLIONS--of these people and their sympathizers all over America and, by god, they will NEVER accept us. And, by god, they are not going to let America accept us without a fight.

    We are the last acceptable prejudice for those people to exercise and that they use their "infallible" bible to justify such hateful words and feel absolutely immune from any retribution shows just how powerful they are.

    Let no one here deceive themselves just how much evangelicals hate LGBT people. We are the living truth that exposes the lies and myths that are their bible and their religion. Entire multi-million dollar evangelical empires depend upon the continuance of demonization of LGBT people. Those empires do not intend to go out without a fight--a violent and destructive fight.

    They vote. Don't forget that they vote. And, after our President has publicly supported marriage and civil equality for LGBT Americans, you can bet that in churches of all christian denominations who are conservative-fundamentalist in their world view, there will be major proselytizing to get out the vote.

    They are legion. Be afraid. Be very, very afraid.

  16. People, let's be real here: The ravings of this pastor, not to mention those of Pastor Worley and the Westboro people, are far more consistent with the history of Christianity than Christians who support us are.

    I'm getting tired of this whole notion that people like Pastor Knapp aren't "real" Christians when Christians have been persecuting us and a whole lot of other people for being different for centuries.

    Christianity is an institution, and institutions like Christianity see anything different -- whether it's gays, Jews, Muslims or even practitioners of other kinds of Christianity -- as a threat. You can quibble over Bible verses until you're blue in the face, but nothing will change that religion's sordid history of genocide and violence, which people like Pastor Knapp are striving to continue.

  19. maybe he should be killed for being a straight hateful "christian". there's nothing "christian" about this guy. True Christians dont pay attention to the old testament.

    Posted by: NorthoftheBorder | May 30, 2012 1:23:33 PM


  20. So he's saying he's in favor of post-birth abortion? Because you know he thinks abortion is a sin.

  21. This madman is dangerous. He's influencing a following that consists of people who could be in law enforcement, teachers, parents etc. This is an example of how a large portion of society is peddling in reverse into the dark ages due to tough economic times. I really hope that I don't see my country become Russia or Uganda. It seems though that we're already seeing it. I don't believe I've seen very many anti-gay hate crimes prosecuted appropriately. It's almost as if the police, investigators, prosecutors etc feel some sense of dedication to the idea that "the gay deserved it in reality".

  22. I'm just going to leave these here...

    2 Corinthians 11:13-14
    13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

    1 John 4
    4 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.


    Titus 1:15-16
    15  To the pure, all things are pure, but to the defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure; but both their minds and their consciences are defiled. 16  They profess to know God, but they deny him by their works. They are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good work.

  23. uh, WDEANIS, whose side are you on? Your two posts are vague-they can be applied to either side.

  24. having gone to israel on the lgbtq birthright trip, during which we went to gay community centers in both jerusalem and tel aviv, plus a gay beach and a drag show, and for which all of our accompanying israeli soldiers (including a ranking officer) were gay and had been hand-picked for our trip by their military superiors... yeah, dude's out of his mind. but we already knew that. =)
