    this would be alarming, except for all the “religious” groups speaking out against this type of behavior and hate speech as being wrong – oh, wait…silence? so, i guess they all agree with this representation of their cults.

    Since ths is nothing new for his guy. Since he’s proven over and over that he’s mentally ill, why write about this guy t all. Marginalize these people (there will ALWAYS be these people, no matter what the issue.) Thos they speak to are already sick and lost, why throw these creatins into everyone else’s world and give them platform. Don’t write about them. We already know these creeps exist, it’s neither surprising or cause for appall. But we give them power and sensation whe we write about them and repost their insanity.

    Those statements are so “out there” that in the end I think they actually help us. Of course there ARE people out there who’ll hear things like this and nod their heads in approval, but some will be appalled at the level of venom and be repelled by it.

    What’s interesting is the implicit assumption in his statement that they’ve lost the battle on gay marriage and that this sort of acting out is their only recourse. In the unlikely event that such a hateful person would be invited to a same-sex wedding in the first place, chances are pretty good that other attendees would get right back in their face for pulling such a stunt.

    Just another hate filled bible believer who uses that primitive tome as a cafeteria. He chooses all the hateful things he can find to hurl at people he hates and ignores all the hateful things that apply to him or people he likes. FRAUD! How likely is it that he advises people attending the second wedding of a divorced friend to hold up a sign quoting Jesus, who called that adultery? Does he call for the execution of those who work on the Sabbath, worship gods other than yahweh, curse their parents or commit adultery? OF COURSE NOT. Those bible believers are frauds.

    he went on to ay “and if you find out that the woman wasn’t a virgin when she was married, you have an obligation to throw rocks at her. specifically, at her head. also, if they serve shrimp at the wedding reception, you need to do the same thing. because that’s also a levitical abomination.”

    or at least he should have, had he hoped to be consistent.

    My gaydar is going off here, big time. This guy is definitely getting some gay action on the DL. He strikes me as the park cruising/toe tapping type. I can practically hear a clock ticking on his time left in the closet.

    my favourite part is that he, like all leviticus-citing “Christians”, is actually making a statement that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was a total failure. That Christ failed in His mission. Because, scripturally, Christ’s sacrifice on the cross absolved humans of this sin, that’s why “Christians” don’t follow levitical law. that, and lobster is just too darn delicious. but anyway, if you cite levitical law as being relevant, what you’re saying is that Christ did not succeed in His plan.

    which, truthfully, is a gaspingly hilarious stance for a pious Christian to take.

    Who are these people? They say that me and the people that I know have an “agenda” but we’re just growing up trying to live our lives without fear. We didn’t ask for their hate – but they’re giving it. THEY HAVE THE AGENDA!

    Christians are the bane of our existence. This evangelical cancer needs to be exterminated, excised from the American body-politic. What hateful, vile people are christians! Simply disgusting.

    uhhh .. Gay men don’t sleep with men “as they sleep with women”. They only sleep with men. And 20:13 would seem to apply to closet cases who are on the downlow and lying to themselves and their female partners. Very doubtful they’d ever be be participating in a gay wedding.

    In the Epistle of Paul to Titus, Paul appears to support the servitude of slaves: “Tell slaves to be submissive to their masters and to give satisfaction in every respect; they are not to talk back, not to pilfer, but to show complete and perfect fidelity, so that in everything they may be an ornament to the doctrine of God our Savior.” [53]
    Here is yet ANOTHER example of Crazy XTians picking and choosing what they liked about the “bible”… Segregation was not only practiced in modern times but held as okay with the churches…(Baptists are ya listenin?)…even forced a blanket apology in modern times for believing slavery was okay with God… Very cool….The pork issue, the shellfish issue and the mixed cloth issues seem to not be relevant to these fools any more. THEIR choice of belief became their “religion” So very sad. There are so many “no-no’s in the “bible” that it makes one’s head spin. And for to focus on homosexuality while they eat their shrimp cocktail and pork …hmmmmm.hypocrity at it’s finest!…Clearly the people that take this troll’s words as anything other than idiocy deserve what they get in life…usually frustration & conflict….and tons of GUILT.Go away.

    This is like an episode of “True Blood.” I love the idea! People who speak of “internalized” conditions don’t have a clue. How could they? They are more frightened by what they know is internalized in them.

  13. Bud_Clark says

    Implicitly calling for the killing of an individual or group is WAY BEYOND a “no-no.” Isn’t it legally actionable? It certainly is if you call for the killing of the US President; are we worth less?

    I agree with those who hear the wood splintering on his closet door … but in the meantime, he is a SERIOUSLY dangerous homicidal psychopath who should be subject to an involuntary commit in a mental institution.

  14. GB says

    The “closet door” is always the gay trap door, or rationalization for everyone. By saying every freak could be a closet case you are welcoming them to our gay population. Everyone can’t be a closet case. Term loves to get thrown around here.

  15. says

    This guy is crazy and he’s a big closet case. He spends more time thinking about sodomy than those of us who actually practice it.

    Beware the lustful heart!

    Also, this is a man who said women who take the pill have “tiny fetuses embedded in their wombs” and serve as “graveyards for lots of little babies.”

    He also called for the killing of Kermit the Frog after the fallout with Chick-fil-A… proclaims hurricane Katrina was because of the gays… and the Colorado wildfires was because the Denver Post ran a picture of Mark Ferrandino kissing his partner on the front.

    So what good is there in giving the man who said Mark Twain was demon-possessed for most of his life any further reach with his voice? He’s a closeted nut-job projecting nothing on to everybody… that’s it.

    What kind of monster would advocate attending someone’s wedding and holding up a sign saying that you disapprove of that wedding? A wedding is supposed to be a happy occasion. If you can’t be happy for the couple, then you have no business attending. If you are a baker who is against gay marriage and you have to bake a cake for a gay wedding you have two choice. One, discover your sense of humor and accept good-naturedly that change happens – even change you don’t agree with, and then….bake the damn cake. Or two, choose a different profession. Both of these options may stink according to those who are anti-gay, but someone should let them know that there is nothing in the constitution that says life will always work out the way you want it. Freedom of religion can’t justify every thing a person wants to do – regardless of the sincerity of his faith.

    This man is making Christians look bad. Increasingly they will have to live in a world where gay marriage is a reality. Why is he encouraging actions that would only make it harder for them to do so?

    Is God an 80 year old librarian spinster? The whole ‘sex is bad’ thinking is man-made not a message from God. God was specific. Do not lie, do not steal, do not kill, do not covet, honor thy mother and father, treat others as you would like to be treated. It’s the so-called inspired spiritual men who added the ‘sex is yucky’ parts. Lie with woman, Lie with men, Let us know them… is not God speak.

    @Levi: according to http://www.religioustolerance.org/hom_bibh5.htm a more or less literal word-for-word translation of the original Hebrew for Levicitus 18:22 is, “And with a male thou shalt not lie down in beds of a woman; it is an abomination.”

    We may never know what they really meant. There were also prohibitions on worshiping other gods and their neighbors had rituals involving male temple prostitutes who dressed was women – something about ensuring a good harvest or whatnot. If these male prostitutes worked in femininely decorated beds, the passage might really refer to that, with the meaning obvious to people living at that place and time.

    Another possibility that has been raised is that it was similar to the prohibition against fabric made of two types of cloth – if you wanted to have sex with a male, you had to do it in a male bed.

    To berate people based on some ancient text whose meaning is that vague is simply beyond the pale. Christians who do that need to learn how to behave in public.
