Restaurant Patron Says ‘Religious Principles’ Compelled Him To Hurl Hate Speech at Gay Man: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-08-07 at 6.24.23 PM

In another exhibit for the "Who Would Jesus Hate?" archives, Michigan man Victor Sadet (who appears to be this man) was so moved by the Holy Spirit that he followed diner Isiah David Tweedie [pictured below] and his friends out of the Fire Mountain restaurant to hurl homophobic slurs.

TweedieCalling Tweedie a "f*cking fa**ot", the holy roller was certain to clarify that the book of Leviticus called for Tweedie's death. The man was later interviewed by WILX 10 News and confirmed that it was indeed his religious principles that drove him to act like an utter lunatic.

If you can bear the bigotry, you can watch the original video and WILX's report AFTER THE JUMP…

    And the “good” Christians will be speaking out to condemn this man in 3, 2, 1…

    No wait a minute 3, 2, 1…

    Let’s see, uh 3, 2, 1…

    Oh, never mind.

  2. Paul B. says

    @ Derrick from Philly…Now this is some dumb white trash…from America this time…not Africa. Ignorance & bigotry is rampant the world over and Victor Sadet happens to be white. It’s a worldwide epidemic! Oops, am I being racist? Cue Derrick.

    Glad it wasn’t me he assaulted. He’d be meeting his “maker” since I’d being exercising my rights under the second amendment and standing my ground.

  4. Jeebus on the Mainline says

    It would’ve been my self-defense principles that would’ve compelled me to blast some pepper spray into his face, followed by a few kicks to the groin, all in the name of Jesus and the Holy Spirit of the Habanera.

  5. says

    A Federal hate crime? Sue the silly bastard and let’s see if the full Supreme Court backs Sadet’s decision to follow, harass and sling homophobic slurs because of his religion. Open your pocketbook Sadet and get ready to everything you’ve got.

  6. Cassandra says

    And right off the bat, the Christian hater Trev blames all Christians for the behavior of one – the very same sh*t that Porno Pete pulls on gay people. For decades, homophobes have demanded that GLBTQ people denounce this or that person, and when we don’t do so fast enough, then it means we’re all evil.

    And then we get Andy – who apparently hasn’t learned a thing for the decades of homophobes calling GLBTQ people mentally ill, so he has to revile most of the world, including most of our allies, with the same slander.

    And, of course, Jesus said nothing about the subject, so well, it must not be that important, and one can even make the case that He actually affirmed the love between a committed, same-sex couple.

  8. Chazwm says

    Exactly, ROMAN CENTURION….Jesus was moved by the love between people…not the hate. Ooops…FOCUS ON THE FAMILY, FAMILY RESEARCH COUNCL, AMERICAN FAMILY ASSOCIATION, CONCERNED WOMEN FOR AMERICA and all their wannabees…if you ain’t been lovin’ ya’ll might not be passin’ them pearly gates afterall!

  9. DRoseDARs says

    When faced with someone quoting Leviticus, the only correct response is to calmly stand up, get in their face, and coldly tell them to, “Then do it…” and not back down until they scurry back into the shadows.

  10. Esteban says

    @Cassandra, actually all Trev calls attention to is oftentimes when some idiot like Mr Sadet does make his hateful remarks the silence from other Christians is deafening. It’s not hating Christians, it’s just calling attention to what can be construed as a tacit approval by remaining silent.
    Noticeabley YOU didn’t condemn his remarks.

  11. JJ says

    @CASSANDRA, you’re point might be apt if the term Christian didn’t—by design—encompass completely contradictory moral standards. As such, it’s pretty ridiculous to vest your identity in a word that you know means wildly different things to different people and then complain when people use the word in ways that you feel don’t apply to you.

  12. says

    by citing levitical law he’s saying Christ failed in His mission on the cross.
    and by wearing that heinous outfit he’s breaking other levitical laws, anyway.

    which brings me to my point: religion is not a reason for anti-gay prejudice, it’s an excuse. it’s what people cling to when they know they can’t argue intelligently.

    they say “its mah relijhunn!”

    the man is a pathetic hack. let the shaming begin. and continue. until it drives him mad.

  13. MaryM says

    He is a typical christian – motivated by hatred and division.

    However.

    God is not real.
    People who believe in ‘god’ are making a deliberate choice to be stupid.

  14. thom says

    …The most frightening part of this is the raw anger and hate this man exposed..It is also a sad commentary on certain people “of faith” proving they are delusional.This is not the way Jesus intends for people to live their lives, in my opinion. Mental instability is rampant within “religious” types. Please don’t confuse this instability to true Christian values.His behavior soils what a true person of faith is all about.Sad case.This man is horribly hateful and clearly needs an anger management class (or 50!)…He is the type that would kick a puppy.’Nuf said?

  15. Gay Guy says

    How is this different that if he harassed black patrons in the 1960s when restaurants had recently been desegregated?

    Also, what if he harassed Jewish patrons because he though that they should be eating only kosher food? There are some non-Jews who believe that Jews should only eat kosher food (which is consistent with Orthodox Jewish teaching).

    Cassandra, get your NALTish tit out of the wringer, and denounce this “Christian’s” behavior.

    this is a perfect example why the GLBT community needs anti-discrimination and other laws……and why the right wing screaming religious freedom is a bunch of nonsense….the guy in this article is using hate speech because of his religious beliefs and it is perfectly legal!!

    “@ Derrick from Philly…Now this is some dumb white trash…”

    You ought to be ashamed at hurling racial slurs. Leave the word “white” out of your filthy slur. ( tissue wipe my forehead)

    You see, I’m a Christian today…and I thought the Christian fool was fvckin’ funny. The Gay guy was NOT afraid–I like that.

  20. The Milkman says

    Christian love in action. I’m sure his behavior changed hearts and minds everywhere and brought many people to the love of Christ.

    This is yet another example of how one’s religion should remain something that’s intensely private.

  21. Belial says

    I have religious principles that tell me if someone smacks me on the cheek, I’m fully entitled to smash them on the other.

    Someone does something like that to me, he or she’ll regret it.

  22. BigGuy says

    What if Tweedie had a gun? What if he used it to protect himself because he felt threatened?
    Or does that MI law about self protection NOT apply for gay men?

  23. Bill says

    @Little Kiwi : the homophobe doesn’t even understand Leviticus! Read the last sentence in that book of the Bible to see why: “These are the commandments which the Lord commanded Moses to tell the Israelites 45 at Mount Sinai.

    “45” is a footnote: Most of the commentaries and English versions translate, “which the Lord commanded Moses for the children of Israel.” The preposition אֶל (’el), however, does not usually mean “for.” In this book it is commonly used when the Lord commands Moses “to speak [un]to” a person or group of persons (see, e.g., Lev 1:2; 4:2, etc.). The translation “to tell” here reflects this pattern in the book of Leviticus.

    Also read http://www.religion-online.org/showarticle.asp?title=2 for some historical/religious context (the real experts are a lot more reasonable than the idiot on the soapbox shouting about how everyone except them is going to Hell).

    Related headline: Bear taunts religious fanatic. “F**king dinner!” NOM NOM NOM

    Granted, the bear would have to vomit afterward — the neurological conditions that are necessary to support bigotry tend to be rather stressful on the body, which ends up ruining the meat. But the point still stands. 😀

  25. jamal49 says

    @CASSANDRA Sorry, honey, but all christians are filth. All christians are scum. All christians are inherently hateful despite your protestations to the contrary. All SkyGod religions are foul, fetid fulminations of magical thinking and spiritual decadence. Get over it, girl.

  26. Enchantra says

    Well that was a wonderful exercise in free speech and self control. Everyone got to say what he wanted and no one got hurt. I do hope that Isiah Tweedle (seriously?) was armed in the event that the hater came too close. Howbeit Isiah was the true star of the show, and I praise him for standing his ground.

    We do not have the “right” to go through life unoffended. We do have the right to go through life without being physically attacked and with the right and ability to defend ourselves with guns if we are physically attacked.

    Please examine all the views of the people you vote for. It’s nice when politicians say “We like gay people.” or “We want gay people to be equal.” but it doesn’t mean much if these same people will not defend freedom of speech, freedom of association, the right to keep and bear arms, and the integrity of the American population and our borders.

    I would have LOVED this video if it ended with the man being run over. I read a great post this week that said “If you believe in killing in the name of religion please start with yourself!”

    Enchantra:

    b1tch, why do you sound so much like Rick and Hearne (I can’t remember it’s first name) today. You sound/read exactly like them.
