"And the second command is like the first: 'You must love other people the same as you love yourself.' All of the law and the writings of the prophets take their meaning from these two commands."

I can't believe that this Nazi son of a bitch, actually stood there and suggested that they should put gays and lesbians into genocidal concentration camps. Surrounded by electrified fences till they all died from old age.

John is called five-times, “the disciple whom Jesus loved.” Heterosexual Bible Scholars argue Jesus Christ loved all his disciples … he practiced celibacy. But none of the other eleven were ever once referred to as a disciple whom Jesus loved. It is constantly pointed out that John was a special love interest. For example, John 13:23 and 25 states::
Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved … He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?
The King was blunt and unashamed in his avowal of love for Buckingham and compared it to Jesus' love of John:
I, James, am neither a god nor an angel, but a man like any other. Therefore I act like a man and confess to loving those dear to me more than other men. You may be sure that I love the Earl of Buckingham more than anyone else, and more than you who are here assembled. I wish to speak in my own behalf and not to have it thought to be a defect, for Jesus Christ did the same, and therefore I cannot be blamed. Christ had John, and I have George.
The pastor's comments seem in line with statements made by Ron Baity, founding pastor of Berean Baptist Church in Winston-Salem and head of the anti-marriage equality organization Return America, who told his own congregation that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people should be prosecuted as they were historically, and Pastor Sean Harris of the Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville who advocated parents "punch" their male child if he is effeminate and "crack that wrist" if he is limp-wristed.

Of course, if anyone were to suggest the same treatment for Christians, or, God Forbid Jews (what, Again!?!)
They would be condemed in the most strident terms, and from every corner of the globe.
And there would be no question but that anyone who would ever make such a suggestion be driven from any official post they might hold.
And yet, I don't see that happening here.
Pastor Charles Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, North Carolina told his congregation this Sunday that he wants to set up gay concentration camps for “lesbians and queers” to let them die out, and the backlash has been strong. Thanks to complaints from many individuals, Pastor Worley no longer has a website, because the company that produced and hosted it took it down after receiving numerous complaints. Both Anderson Cooper and Martin Bashir took on Worley on their respective shows yesterday, highlighting not only how wrong his interpretation of scripture was, but how dangerous his rhetoric was. Watch the clips:
A group calling itself Catawba Valley Citizens Against Hate says it plans a peaceful protest Sunday outside Providence Road Baptist Church in Catawba County, an independent Baptist church where the Rev. Charles Worley delivered his controversial homily on May 13.

Ironic these people are..
"Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven."
This is a bible quote from the book Luke..
No I am not religious but it fits here...
Apparently they missed this verse or 2..
