Pastor promotes bigotry and child abuse!

Reverend Sean Harris, the senior pastor at Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville, North Carolina, tells parents to physically assault young children who may appear gay or effeminate. Then gives special dispensation for the assault.

 "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? You are not going to act like that. You were made by God to be a male and you are going to be a male. And when your daughter starts acting to Butch you reign her in. And you say, "Oh, no, sweetheart. You can play sports. Play them to the glory of God. But sometimes you are going to act like a girl and walk like a girl and talk like a girl and smell like a girl and that means you are going to be beautiful. You are going to be attractive. You are going to dress yourself up."You say, "Can I take charge like that as a parent?"Yeah, you can. You are authorized. I just gave you a special dispensation this morning to do that." 

Now, to be fair, this asshole has issued a "retraction" and a half-assed "apology", but it is completely clear that this man is violently anti-LGBT who used the bible to justify his bigotry and hatred.

No, it has nothing to do with the election of your NC constitution. It has to do with your complete intolerance and inability to understand that people are BORN that way. They don't choose to be LGBT. We [the public at large] are sick and tired of bigots like you telling others that they must conform to what your bronze age book tells them they should be.

There is a petition to get his asshole bigot to resign. Please sign it and promote it!  Tell them what you think on Twitter! Facebook! and Youtube!

I will make a prediction though. I have noticed the "sins" that preachers preach most vehemently against are the things they struggle with the most. I suspect this preacher will be in the head lines again soon... under arrest for lewd acts in public.

Peter Popoff miracle requires witchcraft??

I got a letter from Christian evangelist Peter Popoff today.

It reminds me of the "bloody Mary" chant pre-teens would do in the bathroom to scare themselves.

Of course, there is a catch!

I truly have no choice!!!
