Pastor Orders His Flock to Beat Gay Couple Arriving At Church

Pastor Orders His Flock to Beat Gay Couple Arriving At Church | Addicting Info

WTF? and they did. They actually went out and physically attacked the two men, one of whom was the pastor's own son. And the policeman didn't help. This just makes me despair.

Incitement to violence. The church must be confiscated due to a high percentage of users being engaged in criminal conduct.

I'll never understand this. Sometimes I feel like the world is going to hell, but historically, it has never been a nice place. I just thought we'd be more evolved by now. I just see history repeating itself. Japanese prison camps during WW2. Now we have have racial profiling based on those who appear muslim, etc.

If we, as a human race, survive long enough, we won't be able to distinguish races via appearance. Who will we blame then?

ETA: Maybe I'm slightly derailed, but I think it's relevant.

Careful. Incitement to violence is illegal. I had to rewrite my response multiple times.

Hey, this is totally what Jesus was about, right? All that stuff about turning the other cheek was so He could slug the other side of someone's face.

Next, let's go beat up some lepers and don't forget to grab the loaves and fishes before some grubby poor person eats them.

I tried some other combinations of words from the story and can't find it on ANY mainstream outlet....?

If it's true it's dreadful. But I'd like to see a source for it that's more reputable than The Drudge Report...

Thanks for that. Maybe if enough of us click on it, it will start showing up a little higher in the Google results. (When I checked it was pretty much all blogs and the like, including the aforementioned Matt Drudge.)

This is exactly the kind of situation -- where local law enforcement is in collusion with local racism and bigotry -- for which hate crimes were created.

If the local judicial system doesn't step up to the plate as it should, proving there is no uncorrupted legal recourse, the hate crime laws allow the Fed to step in and bring some justice along with them.

Truth Wins Out - Assaulted At Church For the Crime of Being Gay

From that blog, it sounds like it got more complicated with accusations of theft, stabbings and arson so it looks like another court date is scheduled for Nov 22.

Honestly I cannot see how anyone with any morals can associate themselves with any so-called christian church anymore.

Even as an atheist I think this kind of hyperbole is nonsense. "Christian church" is such a wide net that it is almost meaningless as a defining term of any group of people. There are thousands of churches that are doing good works -- down and dirty good works of feeding the poor and other labors of mercy -- but they're not in the news.

I was raised Unitarian, which is (at least nominally) a Christian church, and I wouldn't hesitate to return at any point in my life... when I was willing to get up early on Sunday and get dressed.

Sorry folks. I have never once in my long life met a so-called christian that was not the nazi scum like that witnessed in nazieennessee. Maybe there are some out there that are true to the faith. But they are few. The majority are klansmen using religion as a shield.

Hope the deputy gets fired. It probably will never happen, but at least folks in that town know that law enforcement won't protect you from criminal attacks if you don't subscribe to their worldview.

Also, I agree with Beebo that we shouldn't make sweeping judgments against Christians for the actions of these few bigots. That said ... I would like to see public awareness raised that there is nothing intrinsic about being "Christian" or "Religious" that endorses a person's morality above of others. There are good and horrible people of all stripes out there, and it's a mistake to make moral assumptions based on people's affiliations.

Strange, this coming from Fruitland, Tn.

For those who didn't read all of it or several of the links as not all had all the info.
One of the kids, is the pastors son. Nice dad.

Also, the Pastor had been arrested earlier that day.
I think he's going down.

Exactly no different than what the KKK did during the 50's and 60's. Except we have not seen the gays lynched from trees and set on fire beside burning crosses but rest assured if they have not fled that is next.

Just absolutely sickened that a pastor would have the gall to even spill such foolishness from his mouth, and the fact that members of the congregation actually followed it...it's like their frontal lobes stopped working.
