Well, now that North Carolina has outlawed queer love, the floodgates of hell have opened. Let me be clear - I am not talking about a sudden increase in the number of gays entering the Flaming Gates, (though I am sure many flaming gates could do with a decent re-do, if you know what I mean,) but about the real faces of so-called Christians finally coming to light. Caught this little gem today from a wire story:
"Before the state's vote, Pastor Sean Harris of the Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville instructed parents to use force if their kids start acting gay:
"So your little son starts to act a little girlish when he is four years old and instead of squashing that like a cockroach and saying, 'Man up, son, get that dress off you and get outside and dig a ditch, because that is what boys do,' you get out the camera and you start taking pictures of Johnny acting like a female and then you upload it to YouTube and everybody laughs about it and the next thing you know, this dude, this kid is acting out childhood fantasies that should have been squashed. Can I make it any clearer? Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and crack that wrist. Man up. Give him a good punch. OK?" By Dylan Stableford | The Lookout
So, just punch your kid. Right. A pastor, pretending to speak for his god, saying this from the pulpit. This idiot is one great salesman for bringing more people into the flock. Sadly, there are people who will follow such sage advice, and when their child grows up and leaves home and renounces all family contact, do you think the family will blame this jerk for what happened? Not a chance.
Most likely, they'll next turn to "honor" killings. In the name of their god, of course. Now, where have I heard of that practice before, hmmm?
