700 Club,” televangelist Pat Robertson reacted
to the massacre at an Orlando gay club by saying,
that liberal LGBT rights advocates have aligned
themselves with radical Islamists and are now
reaping exactly what they have sown.
Pastor Steven Anderson reacted to the terrorist attack
at the Orlando, Florida gay nightclub by happily announcing
that “there are 50 less pedophiles in this world.”
He added, “The bad news is that a lot of the homos
in the bar are still alive, so they’re going to continue
to molest children and recruit people into
their filthy homosexual lifestyle.”
He claimed that gun owners and pastors are the real victims
of the tragedy, predicting that the government will use the massacre
to confiscate firearms, demonize Christians and outlaw hateful speech.
And we all know that hate speech is an important part of fundamentalist religion.
Like the hate speech of Pat Robertson after 117 people died in Hurricane Sandy.
He claimed Sandy happened because of growing acceptance of homosexuality.
This is the same Pat Robertson who advised a caller to his TV show
to go ahead and divorce his wife that was suffering with Alzheimer’s.
Fundamentalist Muslim cleric Abdul Qadeer Baksh
stated that in a perfect world gays would be killed.
Kansas Pastor Curtis Knapp told his church members
the government should start killing homosexuals.
Maryland Pastor Dennis Leatherman said his flesh
kind of likes the idea of killing all the gays.
Pastor Jeff Sangl of the Apostolic Truth Tabernacle cheered a child
who sang, “ain’t no homo going to make it to Heaven.”
This in the same town where a fifteen year old killed himself
after being bullied for being perceived of as gay by his classmates.
Pastor Sean Harris says if a son shows what is perceived as effeminate behavior,
a parent should beat him and squash him like a cockroach.
North Carolina Pastor Charles Worley told his congregation,
that gays should be interned in concentration camps.
The late Fred Phelps was pastor of the Westboro Baptist Church.
He and his members protested at U.S. soldiers funerals.
They claimed God was letting our soldiers die in wars
because gays were getting rights and that “God hates fags.”
Billy Graham’s son Franklin warned that God was going
to send the floods of Noah because of gay marriage rights.
These religious leaders believe God hates all the same people as them.
Thusly, they were all created in God’s image,
I believe God loves so he doesn’t preach hate.
It is religion, which is of man that preaches hate.
I’d suggest these “religious men” try to follow that whole
love one another and judge not lest yes be judged thing.
