A week after saying that he wouldn’t apologize for using homophobic slurs in sermons, Texas pastor Jonathan Shelley, the leader of the anti-gay Stedfast Baptist Church, said in a city council meeting that Pride Month is an “abomination” that shouldn’t be promoted. Shelley addressed the Arlington City Council, where a meeting was being held about acknowledging Pride month, telling them that he’s “horrified and ashamed” that the city decided to “promote and solicit Pride.”
“I don’t understand why we celebrate what used to be a crime not long ago. God has already ruled that murder, adultery, witchcraft, rape, bestiality and homosexuality are crimes worthy of capital punishment.” In March, Shelley’s church got evicted from its building after the pastor said gay people were “worthy of death,” which violated the terms of the lease that said the church should not promote or threaten violence.

This is why I roll my eyes when people say the GQP will never truly come after LBGTs

When will we stop pretending that what he is saying isn’t a Christian teaching that has been a Christian teaching as long as there have been Christians? If you’re in the cult you’re part of the problem. You give cover to those who follow the teachings of the textbook of the cult.
They’ve always wanted us dead. Then they won’t have to think about sucking cock anymore.
I wonder what would happen if we started calling right wingers “alternative lifestyle” folk
And yet, gluttony is one of the so-called “7 Deadly Sins” that every Christian ought to be aware of even if they can’t recite verses from the Bible. They all give themselves “Mulligans” while casting aspersions on everyone else, like the true hypocrites they are.
