Homophobic Ex-Navy Chaplain: Jesus Would Command Married Gay Couples to Divorce Immediately - VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-12-13 at 9.18.26 AM

On his "Pray in Jesus Name' program yesterday, former Navy chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt weighed in on last month's news of the gay, married Army couple that had been barred from attending a military marriage enrichment program at Fort Irwin, California. Right Wing Watch reports:

...Klingenschmitt said that was the right decision because Christian chaplains can never provide counseling to gay couples, other than to order them to divorce ... which is just what Jesus would do.

"Jesus, if he were providing marriage counseling to two gay men who were married," Klingenschmitt asserted, "Jesus would command them to get divorced immediately"

  1. Er no, Reichcommanger Klingenschmitt , we won't be doing that.

    Instead, why don't you pursue genuine Christian gestures like helping the sick and the poor?

  2. Jesus said nothing about homos.

  3. Hey, Crazyhat! You do know that of all the things you half wits like to attribute to Jesus, divorce is the one thing he would NEVER promote to anyone. The big J never said anything about gays but he was totally against divorce in case you missed those parts of the bible (which I'm guessing you read the Cliff's Notes version of for whatever cut-rate seminary you attended).

  5. So one set of Christians are arguing that there can never be a marriage between two members of the same gender because it just can't happen because of some cosmological mumbo jumbo. So even if you have a ceremony, sign a license and all that jazz it never actually happened on some ontological level. Now another group of Christians is claiming that we will all need to get divorced because we give Jesus the sadz?

    They need to make up their minds. Their silly arguments are showing.

  6. This idiot should be used as the poster boy for why religion is a cancer on humanity. He's a freak and a moron. Shove a bible up his ass after you wrap it in barbed wire.

  8. How arrogant it's to speak for Jesus.

  9. He should as Jesus what the winning lottery numbers are.

  10. It's always nice when scary people look scary so the rest of us know to avoid them

  11. Wrong.

    Jesus met a gay man, via the Roman Centurion trying to heal his 'pais' (a term used to denote the younger male in a gay relationship, ie his 'slave') and said of him, 'Never have I seen faith greater than this'.

    Jesus also mentions gay men as 'born eunuchs' as one of the three types of men not made for marrying women.

    He again mentions homosexuality when he states "Whomever call his brother 'raca' is in danger of hellfire" where raca was the term for the f-word.

    btw, the most passionate love story in the Bible is between two men.

    So give me a flipping break here.

  12. With little help from a makeup artist, this guy would look like Darth Vadar without the mask. Did
    Jesus plan it that way?

  13. He sounds like a chaplain when I was in the service who made it his main mission to seek out and eliminate ALL gays in the military. He also literally said "Kill a commie for Christ" several times. Several soldiers reported him for both things to head officers and they were the ones who disappeared . . .

  14. I have said it once and I will say it again: Christ can catholick me.

  15. Jesus will most likely piss every conservative if he is alive now, just like how he pissed them off back then. I dont know how they cant get that.

  16. He looks like one of the fish from Spongebob. Oh, I'm sorry, that wasn't a very Christian thing to say. Then again, I am not qualified to speak for Jesus, and neither is he. The arrogance is appalling.

  17. @Michael- I think you're reaching a bit with the 'raca' definition. The bible attributes Jesus as condemning name-calling in general, not specifically calling people the f-word.

  18. @Jexer - look it up so, no, i'm not reaching

  19. @Jexer:

    An interesting possibility is proposed by the Lamsa Bible, which renders the passage in this way:

    "You have heard that it was said to those who were before you, You shall not kill, and whoever kills is guilty before the court. But I say to you that whoever becomes angry with his brother for no reason is guilty before the court; and whoever should say to his brother, Raca (which means, I spit on you) is guilty before the congregation; and whoever says to his brother, you are effeminate [Footnote: Aramaic, brutish; abnormal. We might want to add here that the word "effeminate" conveys the thought of being "womanly" or "unmanly"--a sexual reference to homosexuality], is condemned to hell fire."

  20. So maybe he should tell Texas to start allowing gay divorces. Because last I heard they wouldn't.

  21. But he didn't, Blanche... did he? No, he didn't.

    So shut your ugly trap.

  22. Funny, Jesus spoke out against divorces and adulterers. Can't we start stoning them also?
