Even so, I bet this kind of story brings great but secret joy to many in the "LGBT Community." Because it makes them feel like threatened victims. Some lunatic making totally unrealistic threats is nothing for anyone to fear, but you can be sure many are secretly delighted, hunkering down in that warm inner feeling of victimhood-without-true-threat. Oooh, ooooh, I'm an oppressed minority, bask in the glory of my victimhood! See all the scary people who want to hurt me! Must be positively warm and fuzzy for all those LGBT folks who cling to their identities as source of that special glow of victimhood.

Did I not call it that somebody would paint Kansas as primitive backassward hicks? I know you're probably just referring to the horrible people espousing this hateful brand of religion, but still I take it personally. Sorryedit on 30-5-2012 by Mkoll because: (no reason given)

On the flip side of that coin are the religious leaders who are driving forces in the work for equal rights for all. Not just some, but all.
A prime example would be the many religious leaders who lead marches during the civil rights movement. The ones who risked life and limb supporting the resistance in Occupied Europe, sheltering any who needed it.
This has nothing to do with Christ or Christianity. While I detest homosexuality, Christ would never advocate killing them for sinning like that. Love the sinner, hate the sin. Same with women who abort babies. Killing them is not what Jesus would do. He would want to forgive them and get them to repent.

Yes let the religious show themselves for what they truly are. This is how the god of your bible wants you to behave toward your fellow man.
Apropos of nothing at all, have you ever heard of a "religion" called islam? Calling for death and killing is what they do.

Someone needs to revoke his IRS status.
A man of God?
A man of god does not preach violence,intolerance, and bigotry that Kansas pastor has gone to far reprehensible conduct as far as i am concerned.
There is such a thing as free speech and hate speech which that obviously is.edit on 30-5-2012 by neo96 because: (no reason given)
there is simply nothing other than the holocaust of the unborn which imperils the safety of our country or places our people in jeopardy as does the leader of the Western world
