Pastor Jim Garlow Wants Gay Marriage Supporters to 'Live In Houses With Improper Plumbing' - AUDIO

Screen Shot 2014-12-06 at 4.02.41 PMPastor Jim Garlow made rather laughable comments about gay marriage when he called in to the "Point of View," radio program saying its supporters should live in homes that plumbers and electricians built without understanding the male and female end of piping, plumbing and electrical reports Right Wing WatchGarlow, pastor of the evangelical Christian Skyline Church located in La Mesa, Calif., somehow believes this example is representative of heterosexual couplings and that male and female "parts," are needed to have a fully functioning house, whereas a house without both "doesn't work."

Garlow's comments come after the Vatican's recent summit on marriage. This week also saw other religious leaders and supporters issue nonsensical comments about gay marriage in response to the summit.

Prop 8 Supporters Lend Support To Singapore Leader Trying To Criminalize Homosexuality


Jennifer Roback Mors (above) and Pastor Jim Garlow — two spokespeople for California’s Proposition 8 campaign who “remain highly connected to America’s ‘protect marriage’ movement” — have spoken at a Singapore conference whose head is fighting to keep a law criminalizing homosexuality with two years imprisonment.

KhongJeremy Hooper from Good As You writes:

The head of Love Singapore.org, Pastor Lawrence Khong, is the most vocal anti-gay activist in the nation… Khong wrote:

We see a looming threat to this basic building block by homosexual activists seeking to repeal Section 377A of the Penal Code.

Examples from around the world have shown that the repeal of similar laws have led to negative social changes, especially the breakdown of the family as a basic building block and foundation of the society. It takes away the rights of parents over what their children are taught in schools, especially sex education. It attacks religious freedom and eventually denies free speech to those who, because of their moral convictions, uphold a different view from that championed by increasingly aggressive homosexual activists…

Jennifer Roback Morse is the President and Founder of the Ruth Institute, an offshoot of the anti-gay National Organization of Marriage. In the past she has compared gay parenting to slavery, lied to the Rhode Island legislature about the “dangers” of marriage equality and gone on a quixotic one-woman quest to reclaim the rainbow back from the gays.

Jim Garlow, in contrast, once held a “gay marriage summit” at a San Diego megachurch in order to show that pro and anti-marriage proponents can disagree civilly.

A San Diego megachurch is holding a summit on same-sex marriage today in an attempt to ratchet down the rhetoric, the Union Tribune reports:

GarlowPastor Jim Garlow is promising something different as he welcomes several notable figures to his Rancho San Diego megachurch, including Gene Robinson, the first openly gay person to serve as a bishop of a major Christian domination.

“I feel like there’s way too much misunderstanding and way too much name-calling on this issue and not enough civil, respectful dialogue,” Garlow said.

The setting is not exactly neutral territory. Garlow helped spearhead the passage of Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot measure that blocked same-sex unions in California. His evangelical church, Skyline, is widely known for its social conservatism.

Robinson applauded Garlow's move: "I think the real goal is not to change other people’s minds, but to show that people with opposing views can have a civil dialogue."

Earlier this year, Garlow warned that gay marriage "may cost us our lives." Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...
