“And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.”
ChristoFascist Talibans like say Walid and Theodore Shoebat, Steven Anderson, Rick Wiles, the Westboro Baptist crew, and many others, have all used Leviticus 20:13 to condemn homosexuals to death or denial of any and all civil rights. These cherry picking, buybull thumping, ChristoFascist hypocrites always though make excuses for the death penalty punishment in the book of Leviticus for their adulterers. Oh no, they say, since Jesus came? He did away with all those nasty Levitical laws and rules. But really? The ONLY TIME these scumbag, ChristoFascist Talibans use that line of apologetic bullshit? Is when the rules they insist all others follow? Applies directly to them. LGBTS? Oh hell no, the Levitical rules still apply. A Christian on their second, third or fourth “sacred” Christian marriage, or those who have committed adultery with another person, other than their spouse while married? Which is adultery? And demands a death penalty punishment of adulterers? Why oh no, that no longer applies to us.
As long as ChristoFascist Talibans keep going after lgbts with their use of the book of Leviticus and the Bible to call for their brutal murders or the denial of their rights? Then we should start going after Christians who have violated the Levitical and Biblical rules on adultery and either demand, as ChristoFascist Taliban use Leviticus to demand death for homosexuals? The death penalty punishment for all Christian adulterers.
All Christians who are on their second, or third, or fourth “sacred” marriage? Both husband and wife should be dragged out to the city square and stoned to death. For that is what Leviticus and the bible commands to be done to adulterers. For if Christians are going to keep attacking lgbts using Leviticus? Then WE should be attacking Christians for their adulterers and demand the same things for their adulterers that they demand be done to lgbts.
These ChristoFascist Talibans should reap back all they sow, and have done unto them exactly as they want to do unto others.
They want to put lgbts to death? Then they should be put to death. They want to deny lgbts any and all rights? Then they should be denied any and all rights.
Let’s take a look at just some of these scumbag ChristoTaliban pastors and preachers of hate who demand death penalty punishments for being an lgbt and for each and every one of them? They should be dragged out of their pulpits of hate, their cult churches of hate, put on their fucking knees and have exactly the same done unto them as they want to do unto others and let them reap back all the hate and death they sow upon others.
Former Knoxville Police Detective and Pastor Grayson Fitts of the All Scripture Baptist Church in Knoxville Tennessee: A Knoxville pastor is under fire for calling for the deaths of homosexuals.
In early June, Det. Grayson Fritts of All Scripture Baptist Church reportedly preached on the book of Leviticus, saying, “Here’s how it should work, it shouldn’t work when we go out and we enforce the laws, because the Bible says the powers that be are ordained of God, and God has instilled the power of civil government to send the police in 2019 out to these LGBT FREAKS and arrest them. Have a trial for them, and if they are convicted, then they are to be put to death … do you understand that? it’s a capital crime to be carried out by our government.”
The CBS affiliate WVLT reported Fritts continued with an attack on “Pride” month.
“All the pride parades, man, hey call the riot teams, we got a bunch of ’em, get the paddy wagon out here. We got a bunch of ’em going to jail; we got a bunch of them we’re gonna get convicted because they’ve got their pride junk on and they’re professing what they are, they’re a filthy animal,” Fritts reportedly said. “After this onslaught, where the government’s arresting them and carrying out God’s laws and they’re all dead … you think.”
Fritts, a detective with the Knoxville Police Department, accepted a buyout from his position after the remarks. He is on paid sick leave until the buyout takes effect July 19.
2. From Let’s Count the Christian Ministers who advocated death for gays
Mr. Ewing says Imam Farrokh Sekaleshfar, an advocate for killing gays, was invited to speak in Orlando. He forgets to mention Christian Pastor Kevin Swanson, who advocates killing gays. (Huckabee, Jindal, and Cruz attended his ‘Freedom 2015′ knowing this.) Or televangelist Ben Bailey of the “Gospel of Christ’ TV program preaching God commands Christians to stone gays and prevent women from teaching. Or Baptist Pastor Roger Jimenez telling his congregation the Orlando massacre was “great” and “helps society.” Or Pastor Donnie Romero of Stedfast Baptist Church agreeing 100 percent with Romero. Romero advocates the death penalty for gays. Or Steven Anderson of Tempe’s Faithful Word Baptist Church applauding the Orlando massacre and calling for the death of all gays. Or Pastor Curtis Knapp of New Hope Baptist Church in Seneca, Kansas, who wants the government to put gays to death. Or Jeff Smith, Emmanuel Baptist Church in Florida who equates homosexuals with serial killers, rapists, and child molesters. Or Pastor and Republican Andy Gipson in Georgia whose Facebook rants include saying gays, according to Leviticus, “are to be put to death.” Or Lake Independent Baptist Church Pastor Dennis Leatherman’s fifty-minute sermon titled ,“Homosexuality and the Bible,” where he describes his struggle not to kill gays. Want more?
So? Let’s take a look at just some of the scumbag ChristoFascist Taliban pastors mentioned in that one letter to the editor shall we?
MORE CHRISTOFASCIST TALIBAN SHITSTAIN SCUMBAG PASTORS OF HATE AND DEATH
Maryland Pastor Dennis Leatherman of the Lake Independent Baptist Church.
On Sunday, Maryland Pastor Dennis Leatherman delivered a sermon titled, “Homosexuality & the Bible,” during which he said, discussing homosexuals, “Kill them all. Right? I will be very honest with you. My flesh kind of likes that idea. But it grieves the Holy Spirit. It violates Scripture. It is wrong.”
At least this scumbag does agree that Christos should also be going after adulterers too.
Curtis Knapp New Hope Baptist Church, Seneca Kansas
“We punish pedophilia,” Pastor Curtis Knapp of the New Hope Baptist Church in Seneca, Kan. “We punish incest, we punish polygamy and various things. It’s only homosexuality that is lifted out as an exemption.”
Sean Harris, Berean Baptist Church, Fayetteville, NC
In a sermon given in April 2012, Pastor Harris took that to a whole new level with his solution to the gay problem: punch gay-acting children. “Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and you crack that wrist. Man up! Give him a good punch.” Yup, that’ll teach ‘em, especially because nothing says “my son is gay” like a limp wrist.
Charles Worley, Providence Baptist Church, Maiden, NC
This ChristoFascist Taliban’s solution to lgbts is:
“Build a great, big, large fence, 150 or 100 mile long. Put all the lesbians in there. Fly over and drop some food. Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals, and have that fence electrified till they can’t get out. Feed ’em. And you know what? In a few years they’ll die out. You know why? They can’t reproduce.”
Joel McDurmon, director of research for American Vision (AV), a Georgia-based Religious Right group
The Bible demands the execution of gay people, a Religious Right activist has asserted.
Joel McDurmon, director of research for American Vision (AV), a Georgia-based Religious Right group, made the claim in a recent essay on AV’s Web site.
American Vision is aligned with the Christian Reconstructionist movement, a Religious Right faction that openly seeks to replace America’s constitutional democracy with a government built around an ultra-fundamentalist reading of the Bible.
McDurmon was spurred to write the essay, titled “A Perfect Hatred,” after a situation in Uganda began attracting headlines in the American media. The Ugandan parliament is considering legislation that would apply the death penalty and other draconian punishments for homosexuality.
A number of prominent evangelicals, including the Rev. Rick Warren, have condemned the measure. But McDurmon argues that the opponents are wrong, and he condemns anyone who shirks from imposing “biblical law.”
Writes McDurmon, “The truth is, hate is an inescapable concept in every society….The problem is that in modern society, we have let the liberals and heathen define the values for us. Instead of gathering our standards of what is to be loved and what is to be ‘hated’ from God’s word, we are supposed to accept the shouts of shame from liberals – shouts which derive directly from their rejection of God’s word and replacing of God’s standards with their own value system.”
Continues McDurmon, “The evangelical mantra has always been ‘hate the sin but love the sinner,’ which is good pastoral advice to a large degree, but even this piece of folk-wisdom falls short of the biblical standard. God and His spokesmen reveal a clear role for hate of both sin (Ps. 97:10; 101:3; 119:104, 113, 128, 163; 139:21, 22) and the sinners themselves (Ps. 5:5; 11:5; 26:5; 31:6; Mal. 1:1–3; Rom. 9:13) in some circumstances.”
In McDurmon’s view, the Bible speaks clearly on homosexuality.
“God has revealed that specific sins are also civil crimes…. God also reveals specific punishments for specific civil crimes,” he writes. “He revealed that some civil crimes require restitution, a few require the death penalty. Where God says a civil crime deserves the death penalty, I propose that we keep in step with the first greatest commandment and recognize His total sovereignty in heart, soul, strength, and mind.
“Now, it just so happens that God revealed that the homosexual act is a civil crime, and it just so happens that He revealed that the homosexual act as a civil crime deserves the death penalty,” McDurmon continues.
In AV’s view, homosexuality is just one among many crimes that merit the death penalty. Christian Reconstructionists call for the death penalty for as many as 20 offenses, including adultery, homosexuality, fornication, witchcraft, incorrigible juvenile delinquency and spreading false religions.
David Berzins, Word of Truth Baptist Church, Prescott Arizona
Pastor David Berzins recently slammed a fellow pastor for not supporting Pastor Steven Anderson’s call for homosexuals to be put to death per the Bible.
Pastor Anderson also said gay people were to be put to death in 2009, per the Bible, because they recruit via rape and molestation, noted RightWingWatch.org.
Pastor Berzins, of the Word of Truth Baptist Church in Prescott, Arizona, was furious that an unidentified preacher asked to have his church removed from Pastor Anderson’s Faithful Word Baptist Church directory web site, noted RawStory.com (video below).
Pastor Berzins called the offending pastor and (pastors like him) “limp-wristed,” reports the Daily Kos, for not standing “against the homosexual agenda.”
Pastor Berzins said that he liked the offending pastor, but added, “Look, God came up with the laws of the Old Testament. They’re breathed by the Lord. And if you think that you know better on how to run a country than God has ordained, you think that your laws are better!”
Pastor Berzins also complained about Christians who lamented that the Old Testament law (Ten Commandments) was being removed from public, but don’t support the judgment against “sodomites” in the same Old Testament law.
Steven Anderson, Faithful Word Baptist Church, Tempe Arizona
An Arizona Baptist pastor has claimed that the solution to the AIDS pandemic is the execution of all homosexuals.
In an astonishing sermon preached the day before World Aids Day entitled AIDS: The Judgment of God, Rev Stephen Anderson, pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, said that it was possible to achieve achieve an “AIDS-free Christmas”.
In remarks that have caused widespread outrage, Anderson said: “Turn to Leviticus 20:13 because I actually discovered the cure for AIDS. This is the cure for AIDS. Everyone is talking about ‘let’s have an AIDS free world by 2020.’ Look, we can have an AIDS free world by Christmas. OK, it wouldn’t be totally AIDS-free, but we’d be 90-something per cent AIDS-free by Christmas if we follow this.”
Reading the Leviticus passage, he said: “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. And that, my friend, is the cure for AIDS,” he said. “It was right there in the Bible all along — and they’re out spending billions of dollars in research and testing. It’s curable — right there. Because if you executed the homos like God recommends, you wouldn’t have all this AIDS running rampant.”
He also describes President Obama in the sermon as a “bastard”, explaining that the expression was “not a cuss-word” but referred to the child of an unwed mother (in fact Obama’s parents were married when he was born).
Theodore Shoebat, Shoebat Ministries
Right-Wing Extremist Calls For Global ‘Inquisition’ To End ‘Fag Problem’, Kill Gays:
Former Muslims, Shoebat Ministries incites violence against public gatherings of homosexuals. Walid Shoebat runs Shoebat.com and his Theodore Shoebat is his son and Director of Communications. This goes beyond First Amendment free speech. Telling viewers that “god” wants them to harm or kill innocent people is a crime.
Scott Lively, Scott Lively Ministries
Scott Lively, ‘Kill The Gays’ Bill Supporter And Evangelist, On Trial For Crimes Against Humanity
the suit against Lively alleges that he “conspired with religious and political leaders in Uganda to whip up anti-gay hysteria with warnings that gay people would sodomize African children and corrupt their culture.” Vince Warren, executive director of the CCR, argues in a Washington Post blog that Lively calls himself the “‘father’ of the anti-gay movements“ in Uganda.
So these are just a few of these scumbag ChristoFascist Taliban demanding the brutal murders of lgbts based on Leviticus of the buybull.
Each and every one of these pastors, along with the rest of their kind? Should be dragged out of their churches of hate and death, put on their knees and executed with a bullet to the back of their skulls. Cause as far as I am concerned? These scumbags should reap back exactly as they have sown and have done unto them as they want to do unto others.
And any and ALL Christians who are adulterers? Should be rounded up and publicly executed by stoning to death as ordered in Leviticus.
Sick and twisted, ChristoFascist Taliban, GOP piece of fascist shit, North Dakota rep Terry Jones. Hey Terry, how about we start denying ALL Christian adulterers, divorced and remarried with adultery and then do as the buybull says we should do to adulterers. Put them to death.
Here is a link to the pdf of this sick and twisted, disgusting, ChristoFascist Talibans HB No 1476 seeking to lie about lgbts and secular humanism.
Now let’s take what this scumbag says in his bill, which violates the separation of church and state clauses, violates a persons ie lgbt or secular humanists right to Free Speech under the First Amendment of the Constitution and pushes ChristoTaliban religion over all others, and his outrageous bullshit lie as to what secular humanism is.
The introduction for this ChristoFascist Taliban discrimination bill.
A BILL for an Act to create and enact a new chapter to title14 of the North Dakota Century Code, relating to nonsecular self-asserted sex-based identity narratives, to prohibit the state from creating or enforcing policies that directly or symbolically respect nonsecular self-asserted sex-based identity narratives or sexual orientation orthodoxy pursuant to the establishment clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and section3 of articleI of the Constitution of North Dakota; to provide for the continued enforcement of secular marriag epolicies; to prohibit discrimination for nonsecular beliefs pursuant to the free exercise clause ofthe First Amendment to the United States Constitution and section 3 of article I of theConstitution of North Dakota.
First, this piece of shit ChristoTaliban Fascist GOPig Terry Jones has no fucking clue as to what secular humanism is. This is what this Jeebus the Dead Jewish Zombie still rotting on a stick Fascist shitstain says what secular humanism is:
The term includes a belief system that is centered on the unproven assumptions there are no moral absolutes and no one moral doctrine should be used as the superior basis for law and policy. The term includes a series of unproven faith-based assumptions and naked assertions that suggest that morality and truth are man made conventions and that at the heart of liberty is man’s ability to define his own meaning of the universe. The term refers to a religion that tends to promote licentiousness and to justify practices that are inconsistent with the peace and safety of the state. The term refers to the belief that man is merely a bundle of chemicals, animated pieces of meat, or accidental particles, and that nature is all there is…
GOPig Terry Jones House Bill No. 1476
Now let’s see what secular humanism really means
Secular humanism is comprehensive, touching every aspect of life including issues of values, meaning, and identity. Thus it is broader than atheism, which concerns only the nonexistence of god or the supernatural. Important as that may be, there’s a lot more to life … and secular humanism addresses it.
Secular humanism is nonreligious, espousing no belief in a realm or beings imagined to transcend ordinary experience.
Secular humanism is a lifestance, or what Council for Secular Humanism founder Paul Kurtz has termed a eupraxsophy: a body of principles suitable for orienting a complete human life. As a secular lifestance, secular humanism incorporates the Enlightenment principle of individualism, which celebrates emancipating the individual from traditional controls by family, church, and state, increasingly empowering each of us to set the terms of his or her own life.
Secular humanism is philosophically naturalistic. It holds that nature (the world of everyday physical experience) is all there is, and that reliable knowledge is best obtained when we query nature using the scientific method. Naturalism asserts that supernatural entities like God do not exist, and warns us that knowledge gained without appeal to the natural world and without impartial review by multiple observers is unreliable.
Secular. “Pertaining to the world or things not spiritual or sacred.”
Humanism. “Any system of thought or action concerned with the interests or ideals of people … the intellectual and cultural movement … characterized by an emphasis on human interests rather than … religion.” — Webster’s Dictionary
Secular humanism provides a cosmic outlook—a world-view in the broadest sense, grounding our lives in the context of our universe and relying on methods demonstrated by science. Secular humanists see themselves as undesigned, unintended beings who arose through evolution, possessing unique attributes of self-awareness and moral agency.
Secular humanists hold that ethics is consequential, to be judged by results. This is in contrast to so-called command ethics, in which right and wrong are defined in advance and attributed to divine authority. “No god will save us,” declared Humanist Manifesto II (1973), “we must save ourselves.” Secular humanists seek to develop and improve their ethical principles by examining the results they yield in the lives of real men and women.
Now? Let’s educate this ChristoFascist Taliban troglodyte on the truth and facts about his brutally evil, disgustingly degenerate, hypocrisy of Christianity
Christianity and Christians rose to power not on their message of love, peace, forgiveness, not judging others, or in keeping any of their supposed commandments of Jesus, such as turning the other cheek, forgiving your enemies, etc. That if you have any hate in your heart for ANYONE, then YOU cannot call yourself a Christian and follower of Jesus.
Christian atrocities and butchery against the Pagans:
As soon as Christianity was legal (315), more and more pagan temples were destroyed by Christian mob. Pagan priests were killed. Between 315 and 6th century thousands of pagan believers were slain. Examples of destroyed Temples: the Sanctuary of Aesculap in Aegaea, the Temple of Aphrodite in Golgatha, Aphaka in Lebanon, the Heliopolis. Christian priests such as Mark of Arethusa or Cyrill of Heliopolis were famous as “temple destroyer.”
Pagan services became punishable by death in 356.
Christian Emperor Theodosius (408-450) even had children executed, because they had been playing with remains of pagan statues.
According to Christian chroniclers he “followed meticulously all Christian teachings…”
In 6th century pagans were declared void of all rights. In the early fourth century the philosopher Sopatros was executed on demand of Christian authorities.
The world famous female philosopher Hypatia of Alexandria was torn to pieces with glass fragments by a hysterical Christian mob led by a Christian minister named Peter, in a church, in 415.
Emperor Karl (Charlemagne) in 782 had 4500 Saxons, unwilling to convert to Christianity, beheaded.
Peasants of Steding (Germany) unwilling to pay suffocating church taxes: between 5,000 and 11,000 men, women and children slain 5/27/1234 near Altenesch/Germany.
Battle of Belgrad 1456: 80,000 Turks slaughtered.
15th century Poland: 1019 churches and 17987 villages plundered by Knights of the Order. Victims unknown.
16th and 17th century Ireland. English troops “pacified and civilized” Ireland, where only Gaelic “wild Irish”, “unreasonable beasts lived without any knowledge of God or good manners, in common of their goods, cattle, women, children and every other thing.”
One of the more successful soldiers, a certain Humphrey Gilbert, half-brother of Sir Walter Raleigh, ordered that “the heddes of all those (of what sort soever thei were) which were killed in the daie, should be cutte off from their bodies… and should bee laied on the ground by eche side of the waie”, which effort to civilize the Irish indeed caused “greate terrour to the people when thei sawe the heddes of their dedde fathers, brothers, children, kinsfolke, and freinds on the grounde”.
Tens of thousands of Gaelic Irish fell victim to the Christian carnage.
Until Jan 1098 a total of 40 capital cities and 200 castles conquered (number of slain unknown) after 6/3/98 Antiochia (then turkish) conquered, between 10,000 and 60,000 slain. 6/28/98 100,000 Turks (incl. women & children) killed.
Here the Christians “did no other harm to the women found in [the enemy’s] tents—save that they ran their lances through their bellies,” according to Christian chronicler Fulcher of Chartres.
Marra (Maraat an-numan) 12/11/98 thousands killed. Because of the subsequent famine “the already stinking corpses of the enemies were eaten by the Christians” said chronicler Albert Aquensis.
Jerusalem conquered 7/15/1099 more than 60,000 victims (jewish, muslim, men, women, children).
(In the words of one witness: “there [in front of Solomon’s temple] was such a carnage that our people were wading ankle-deep in the blood of our foes”, and after that “happily and crying for joy our people marched to our Saviour’s tomb, to honour it and to pay off our debt of gratitude”) The Archbishop of Tyre, eye-witness, wrote: “It was impossible to look upon the vast numbers of the slain without horror; everywhere lay fragments of human bodies, and the very ground was covered with the blood of the slain. It was not alone the spectacle of headless bodies and mutilated limbs strewn in all directions that roused the horror of all who looked upon them. Still more dreadful was it to gaze upon the victors themselves, dripping with blood from head to foot, an ominous sight which brought terror to all who met them. It is reported that within the Temple enclosure alone about ten thousand infidels perished.” [TG79] Christian chronicler Eckehard of Aura noted that “even the following summer in all of palestine the air was polluted by the stench of decomposition”.
One million victims of the first crusade alone.
Battle of Askalon, 8/12/1099. 200,000 heathens slaughtered “in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ”.
Fourth crusade: 4/12/1204 Constantinople sacked, number of victims unknown, numerous thousands, many of them Christian.
Rest of Crusades in less detail: until the fall of Akkon 1291 probably 20 million victims (in the Holy land and Arab/Turkish areas alone).
15th century: Crusades against Hussites, thousands slain.
1538 pope Paul III declared Crusade against apostate England and all English as slaves of Church (fortunately had not power to go into action).
1568 Spanish Inquisition Tribunal ordered extermination of 3 million rebels in (then Spanish) Netherlands. Thousands were actually slain.
1572 In France about 20,000 Huguenots were killed on command of pope Pius V. Until 17th century 200,000 flee.
17th century: Catholics slay Gaspard de Coligny, a Protestant leader. After murdering him, the Catholic mob mutilated his body, “cutting off his head, his hands, and his genitals… and then dumped him into the river […but] then, deciding that it was not worthy of being food for the fish, they hauled it out again [… and] dragged what was left … to the gallows of Montfaulcon, ‘to be meat and carrion for maggots and crows’.”
17th century: Catholics sack the city of Magdeburg/Germany: roughly 30,000 Protestants were slain. “In a single church fifty women were found beheaded,” reported poet Friedrich Schiller, “and infants still sucking the breasts of their lifeless mothers.”
17th century 30 years’ war (Catholic vs. Protestant): at least 40% of population decimated, mostly in Germany.
So this is how the ChristoFascist Taliban rose to power. First by declaring Pagans to be put to death and then? Christians putting millions of Pagans to brutal, vile, evil death.
Of course? ChristoFascist Taliban justify this by proclaiming they were the ones who were persecuted and were only defending themselves against the Pagans, which, according to the Christians own recorded history of this? They are full of bullshit when they say they were the ones persecuted.
Now? Let’s see how Christians treated Jews shall we?
Already in the 4th and 5th centuries synagogues were burned by Christians. Number of Jews slain unknown.
In the middle of the fourth century the first synagogue was destroyed on command of bishop Innocentius of Dertona in Northern Italy. The first synagogue known to have been burned down was near the river Euphrat, on command of the bishop of Kallinikon in the year 388.
17. Council of Toledo 694: Jews were enslaved, their property confiscated, and their children forcibly baptized.
The Bishop of Limoges (France) in 1010 had the cities’ Jews, who would not convert to Christianity, expelled or killed.
Second Crusade: 1147. Several hundred Jews were slain in Ham, Sully, Carentan, and Rameru (all locations in France).
Third Crusade: English Jewish communities sacked 1189/90.
Fulda/Germany 1235: 34 Jewish men and women slain.
1257, 1267: Jewish communities of London, Canterbury, Northampton, Lincoln, Cambridge, and others exterminated.
1290 in Bohemian (Poland) allegedly 10,000 Jews killed.
1337 Starting in Deggendorf/Germany a Jew-killing craze reaches 51 towns in Bavaria, Austria, Poland.
1348 All Jews of Basel/Switzerland and Strasbourg/France (two thousand) burned.
1349 In more than 350 towns in Germany all Jews murdered, mostly burned alive (in this one year more Jews were killed than Christians in 200 years of ancient Roman persecution of Christians).
1389 In Prag 3,000 Jews were slaughtered.
1391 Seville’s Jews killed (Archbishop Martinez leading). 4,000 were slain, 25,000 sold as slaves. Their identification was made easy by the brightly colored “badges of shame” that all jews above the age of ten had been forced to wear.
1492: In the year Columbus set sail to conquer a New World, more than 150,000 Jews were expelled from Spain, many died on their way: 6/30/1492.
1648 Chmielnitzki massacres: In Poland about 200,000 Jews were slain.
The Holocaust saw the internment and execution of an estimated six million European Jews between 1933 and 1945. The process that led up to the Holocaust and the justifications for the actions of the Nazis were deeply rooted in misrepresentations and misinterpretations of scripture by some of humanity’s worst people. The Nazis were amazing propagandists who utilized people’s beliefs and prejudices to turn the German public against the Jews.
This was done through a variety of means, but ultimately, the justification was made that the Jewish people were “less than” the Christian majority in the country. Adolf Hitler justified many of his views in his book, Mein Kampf, through the Bible and cited numerous passages throughout indicating why the Aryan race was superior to all others:
Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.
The Holocaust represents how religion and preconceived prejudices can be used to negatively motivate people to do horrific things.
Next up GOPig Terry Jones, you disgusting ChristoFascist pig, let’s look at what you Christians did to us Native Americans, with Christians committing the worst case of mass extermination genocide against us Native Americans and justified it using the Christian Manifest Destiny evil:
Beginning with Columbus (a former slave trader and would-be Holy Crusader) the conquest of the New World began, as usual understood as a means to propagate Christianity.
Within hours of landfall on the first inhabited island he encountered in the Caribbean, Columbus seized and carried off six native people who, he said, “ought to be good servants … [and] would easily be made Christians, because it seemed to me that they belonged to no religion.”
While Columbus described the Indians as “idolators” and “slaves, as many as [the Crown] shall order,” his pal Michele de Cuneo, Italian nobleman, referred to the natives as “beasts” because “they eat when they are hungry,” and made love “openly whenever they feel like it.”
On every island he set foot on, Columbus planted a cross, “making the declarations that are required” – the requerimiento – to claim the ownership for his Catholic patrons in Spain. And “nobody objected.” If the Indians refused or delayed their acceptance (or understanding), the requerimiento continued:
I certify to you that, with the help of God, we shall powerfully enter in your country and shall make war against you … and shall subject you to the yoke and obedience of the Church … and shall do you all mischief that we can, as to vassals who do not obey and refuse to receive their lord and resist and contradict him.”
Likewise in the words of John Winthrop, first governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony: “justifieinge the undertakeres of the intended Plantation in New England … to carry the Gospell into those parts of the world, … and to raise a Bulworke against the kingdome of the Ante-Christ.”
In average two thirds of the native population were killed by colonist-imported smallpox before violence began. This was a great sign of “the marvelous goodness and providence of God” to the Christians of course, e.g. the Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony wrote in 1634, as “for the natives, they are near all dead of the smallpox, so as the Lord hath cleared our title to what we possess.”
On Hispaniola alone, on Columbus visits, the native population (Arawak), a rather harmless and happy people living on an island of abundant natural resources, a literal paradise, soon mourned 50,000 dead.
The surviving Indians fell victim to rape, murder, enslavement and spanish raids.
As one of the culprits wrote: “So many Indians died that they could not be counted, all through the land the Indians lay dead everywhere. The stench was very great and pestiferous.”
The indian chief Hatuey fled with his people but was captured and burned alive. As “they were tying him to the stake a Franciscan friar urged him to take Jesus to his heart so that his soul might go to heaven, rather than descend into hell. Hatuey replied that if heaven was where the Christians went, he would rather go to hell.” [SH70]
What happened to his people was described by an eyewitness:
“The Spaniards found pleasure in inventing all kinds of odd cruelties … They built a long gibbet, long enough for the toes to touch the ground to prevent strangling, and hanged thirteen [natives] at a time in honor of Christ Our Saviour and the twelve Apostles… then, straw was wrapped around their torn bodies and they were burned alive.”
Or, on another occasion:
“The Spaniards cut off the arm of one, the leg or hip of another, and from some their heads at one stroke, like butchers cutting up beef and mutton for market. Six hundred, including the cacique, were thus slain like brute beasts…Vasco [de Balboa] ordered forty of them to be torn to pieces by dogs.”
The “island’s population of about eight million people at the time of Columbus’s arrival in 1492 already had declined by a third to a half before the year 1496 was out.” Eventually all the island’s natives were exterminated, so the Spaniards were “forced” to import slaves from other caribbean islands, who soon suffered the same fate. Thus “the Caribbean’s millions of native people [were] thereby effectively liquidated in barely a quarter of a century”.
“In less than the normal lifetime of a single human being, an entire culture of millions of people, thousands of years resident in their homeland, had been exterminated.”
“And then the Spanish turned their attention to the mainland of Mexico and Central America. The slaughter had barely begun. The exquisite city of Tenochtitln [Mexico city] was next.”
Cortez, Pizarro, De Soto and hundreds of other spanish conquistadors likewise sacked southern and mesoamerican civilizations in the name of Christ (De Soto also sacked Florida).
“When the 16th century ended, some 200,000 Christian Spaniards had moved to the Americas. By that time probably more than 60,000,000 natives were dead.”
Of course no different were the founders of what today is the US of Amerikkka.
Although none of the settlers would have survived winter without native help, they soon set out to expel and exterminate the Indians. Warfare among (north American) Indians was rather harmless, in comparison to European standards, and was meant to avenge insults rather than conquer land. In the words of some of the pilgrim fathers: “Their Warres are farre less bloudy…”, so that there usually was “no great slawter of nether side”. Indeed, “they might fight seven yeares and not kill seven men.” What is more, the Indians usually spared women and children.
In the spring of 1612 some English colonists found life among the (generally friendly and generous) natives attractive enough to leave Jamestown – “being idell … did runne away unto the Indyans,” – to live among them (that probably solved a sex problem).
“Governor Thomas Dale had them hunted down and executed: ‘Some he apointed (sic) to be hanged Some burned Some to be broken upon wheles, others to be staked and some shott to deathe’.”
Of course these elegant measures were restricted for fellow englishmen: “This was the treatment for those who wished to act like Indians. For those who had no choice in the matter, because they were the native people of Virginia” methods were different: “when an Indian was accused by an Englishman of stealing a cup and failing to return it, the English response was to attack the natives in force, burning the entire community” down.
On the territory that is now Massachusetts the founding fathers of the colonies were committing genocide, in what has become known as the “Peqout War”. The killers were New England Puritan Christians, refugees from persecution in their own home country England.
When however, a dead colonist was found, apparently killed by Narragansett Indians, the Puritan colonists wanted revenge. Despite the Indian chief’s pledge they attacked.
Somehow they seem to have lost the idea of what they were after, because when they were greeted by Pequot Indians (long-time foes of the Narragansetts) the troops nevertheless made war on the Pequots and burned their villages.
The puritan commander-in-charge John Mason after one massacre wrote: “And indeed such a dreadful Terror did the Almighty let fall upon their Spirits, that they would fly from us and run into the very Flames, where many of them perished … God was above them, who laughed his Enemies and the Enemies of his People to Scorn, making them as a fiery Oven … Thus did the Lord judge among the Heathen, filling the Place with dead Bodies”: men, women, children.
So “the Lord was pleased to smite our Enemies in the hinder Parts, and to give us their land for an inheritance”.
Because of his readers’ assumed knowledge of Deuteronomy, there was no need for Mason to quote the words that immediately follow: “Thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth. But thou shalt utterly destroy them…” (Deut 20)
Mason’s comrade Underhill recalled how “great and doleful was the bloody sight to the view of the young soldiers” yet reassured his readers that “sometimes the Scripture declareth women and children must perish with their parents”.
Other Indians were killed in successful plots of poisoning. The colonists even had dogs especially trained to kill Indians and to devour children from their mothers breasts, in the colonists’ own words: “blood Hounds to draw after them, and Mastives to seaze them.” (This was inspired by spanish methods of the time)
In this way they continued until the extermination of the Pequots was near.
The surviving handful of Indians “were parceled out to live in servitude. John Endicott and his pastor wrote to the governor asking for ‘a share’ of the captives, specifically ‘a young woman or girle and a boy if you thinke good’.”
Other tribes were to follow the same path.
Comment the Christian exterminators: “God’s Will, which will at last give us cause to say: How Great is His Goodness! and How Great is his Beauty!”
“Thus doth the Lord Jesus make them to bow before him, and to lick the Dust!”
Like today, lying was OK to Christians then. “Peace treaties were signed with every intention to violate them: when the Indians ‘grow secure uppon (sic) the treatie’, advised the Council of State in Virginia, ‘we shall have the better Advantage both to surprise them, & cutt downe theire Corne’.”
In 1624 sixty heavily armed Englishmen cut down 800 defenseless Indian men, women and children.
In a single massacre in “King Philip’s War” of 1675 and 1676 some “600 Indians were destroyed. A delighted Cotton Mather, revered pastor of the Second Church in Boston, later referred to the slaughter as a ‘barbeque’.”
Before the arrival of the English, the western Abenaki people in New Hampshire and Vermont had numbered 12,000. Less than half a century later about 250 remained alive – a destruction rate of 98%. The Pocumtuck people had numbered more than 18,000, fifty years later they were down to 920 – 95% destroyed. The Quiripi-Unquachog people had numbered about 30,000, fifty years later they were down to 1500 – 95% destroyed. The Massachusetts people had numbered at least 44,000, fifty years later barely 6000 were alive – 81% destroyed. These are only a few examples of the multitude of tribes living before Christian colonists set their foot on the New World. All this was before the smallpox epidemics of 1677 and 1678 had occurred. And the carnage was not over then.
All the above was only the beginning of the European colonization, it was before the frontier age actually had begun.
A total of maybe more than 150 million Indians (of both Americas) were destroyed in the period of 1500 to 1900, as an average two thirds by smallpox and other epidemics, that leaves some 50 million killed directly by violence, bad treatment and slavery.
In many countries, such as Brazil, and Guatemala, this continues even today.
More Glorious events in US history
Reverend Solomon Stoddard, one of New England’s most esteemed religious leaders, in “1703 formally proposed to the Massachusetts Governor that the colonists be given the financial wherewithal to purchase and train large packs of dogs ‘to hunt Indians as they do bears’.”
Massacre of Sand Creek, Colorado 11/29/1864. Colonel John Chivington, a former Methodist minister and still elder in the church (“I long to be wading in gore”) had a Cheyenne village of about 600, mostly women and children, gunned down despite the chiefs’ waving with a white flag: 400-500 killed.
From an eye-witness account: “There were some thirty or forty squaws collected in a hole for protection; they sent out a little girl about six years old with a white flag on a stick; she had not proceeded but a few steps when she was shot and killed. All the squaws in that hole were afterwards killed …”
By the 1860s, “in Hawai’i the Reverend Rufus Anderson surveyed the carnage that by then had reduced those islands’ native population by 90 percent or more, and he declined to see it as tragedy; the expected total die-off of the Hawaiian population was only natural, this missionary said, somewhat equivalent to ‘the amputation of diseased members of the body’.”
20th Century Church Atrocities committed by Christians.
Catholic extermination camps Surpisingly few know that Nazi extermination camps in World War II were by no means the only ones in Europe at the time. In the years 1942-1943 also in Croatia existed numerous extermination camps, run by Catholic Ustasha under their dictator Ante Paveli, a practising Catholic and regular visitor to the then pope. There were even concentration camps exclusively for children!
In these camps – the most notorious was Jasenovac, headed by a Franciscan friar – orthodox-Christian serbians (and a substantial number of Jews) were murdered. Like the Nazis the Catholic Ustasha burned their victims in kilns, alive (the Nazis were decent enough to have their victims gassed first). But most of the victims were simply stabbed, slain or shot to death, the number of them being estimated between 300,000 and 600,000, in a rather tiny country. Many of the killers were Franciscan friars. The atrocities were appalling enough to induce bystanders of the Nazi “Sicherheitsdient der SS”, watching, to complain about them to Hitler (who did not listen). The pope knew about these events and did nothing to prevent them.
Catholic terror in Vietnam In 1954 Vietnamese freedom fighters – the Viet Minh – had finally defeated the French colonial government in North Vietnam, which by then had been supported by U.S. funds amounting to more than $2 billion. Although the victorious assured religious freedom to all (most non-buddhist Vietnamese were Catholics), due to huge anticommunist propaganda campaigns many Catholics fled to the South. With the help of Catholic lobbies in Washington and Cardinal Spellman, the Vatican’s spokesman in U.S. politics, who later on would call the U.S. forces in Vietnam “Soldiers of Christ”, a scheme was concocted to prevent democratic elections which could have brought the communist Viet Minh to power in the South as well, and the fanatic Catholic Ngo Dinh Diem was made president of South Vietnam.
Diem saw to it that U.S. aid, food, technical and general assistance was given to Catholics alone, Buddhist individuals and villages were ignored or had to pay for the food aids which were given to Catholics for free. The only religious denomination to be supported was Roman Catholicism.
The Vietnamese McCarthyism turned even more vicious than its American counterpart. By 1956 Diem promulgated a presidential order which read:
“Individuals considered dangerous to the national defense and common security may be confined by executive order, to a concentration camp.“
Supposedly to fight communism, thousands of buddhist protesters and monks were imprisoned in “detention camps.” Out of protest dozens of buddhist teachers – male and female – and monks poured gasoline over themselves and burned themselves. (Note that Buddhists burned themselves: in comparison Christians tend to burn others). Meanwhile some of the prison camps, which in the meantime were filled with Protestant and even Catholic protesters as well, had turned into no-nonsense death camps. It is estimated that during this period of terror (1955-1960) at least 24,000 were wounded – mostly in street riots – 80,000 people were executed, 275,000 had been detained or tortured, and about 500,000 were sent to concentration or detention camps.
To support this kind of government in the next decade thousands of American GI’s lost their life….
Rwanda Massacres In 1994 in the small african country of Rwanda in just a few months several hundred thousand civilians were butchered, apparently a conflict of the Hutu and Tutsi ethnic groups.
For quite some time I heard only rumours about Catholic clergy actively involved in the 1994 Rwanda massacres. Odd denials of involvement were printed in Catholic church journals, before even anybody had openly accused members of the church.
Then, 10/10/96, in the newscast of S2 Aktuell, Germany – a station not at all critical to Christianity – the following was stated:
“Anglican as well as Catholic priests and nuns are suspect of having actively participated in murders. Especially the conduct of a certain Catholic priest has been occupying the public mind in Rwanda’s capital Kigali for months. He was minister of the church of the Holy Family and allegedly murdered Tutsis in the most brutal manner. He is reported to have accompanied marauding Hutu militia with a gun in his cowl. In fact there has been a bloody slaughter of Tutsis seeking shelter in his parish. Even two years after the massacres many Catholics refuse to set foot on the threshold of their church, because to them the participation of a certain part of the clergy in the slaughter is well established. There is almost no church in Rwanda that has not seen refugees – women, children, old – being brutally butchered facing the crucifix.
According to eyewitnesses clergymen gave away hiding Tutsis and turned them over to the machetes of the Hutu militia.
In connection with these events again and again two Benedictine nuns are mentioned, both of whom have fled into a Belgian monastery in the meantime to avoid prosecution. According to survivors one of them called the Hutu killers and led them to several thousand people who had sought shelter in her monastery. By force the doomed were driven out of the churchyard and were murdered in the presence of the nun right in front of the gate. The other one is also reported to have directly cooperated with the murderers of the Hutu militia. In her case again witnesses report that she watched the slaughtering of people in cold blood and without showing response. She is even accused of having procured some petrol used by the killers to set on fire and burn their victims alive…”
To GOPig, ChristoFascist Taliban Terry B Jones:
You, Terry B Jones are nothing more than a ChristoFascist Taliban, no different than a Muslim Taliban. You are disgustingly evil and no follower of Jesus Christ.
Not once, in the NT, did Jesus say anything about lgbts. But he did speak out against adulterers. And the bible? It gives a death penalty punishment for being an adulterer.
So you punk, you hypocrite, you cherry picking, buybull thumping hypocrite troglodyte…..how about we do unto Christian adulterers what you punk hypocrite Christians want to do unto lgbts?
It is far past time to start truly persecuting you disgusting ChristoFascist Talibans like you all persecute lgbts, atheists, secular humanists and others. Your own fucking buybull says? Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. And as you sow? So shall you reap.
So ChristoFascist GOPig Talibans like yourself? Should have all your fucking rights taken from you. All your First Amendment rights, to free speech should be taken from you as you wish to take the First Amendment rights of free speech from lgbts and secular humanists.
Matter of fact? Seeing you are such a hypocrite ChristoFascist Taliban punk bitch? Each and every one of you disgusting troglodtye Christians should be rounded up and put into concentration camps, like Charles Worley demanded be done to lgbts. Or as Steven Anderson demanded a US death penalty for lgbts? All ChristoFascist Talibans like you, Worley, Anderson, et al? Should be rounded up and put into concentration camps and then executed. For as you bitch assed ChristoFascist Taliban punks sow? So shall you reap and as you do unto others? The exact same should be done unto you punks.
Despite liberals frequently referencing God, the Bible, and Jesus, there is no “Religious Left.” It is an oxymoron because the two “sets of belief systems” are mutually exclusive. The Bible speaks of such people, Paul wrote, “They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for […]
Bible believing “Jesus” followers must not be “confused” merely by a person’s quoting of “Scripture,” remember Satan himself quoted Scripture to Jesus during the “temptation”and frequently twists it in today’s society to “deceive” Christians who do not yet have a “firm foundation in God’s word.”
AMR ResponseFunny isn’t it? How one of the first modes of attack against the Christian Left is to denigrate and dehumanize them? That is the first line of attack along with projection by the ChristoFascist Reich-Wingers of their actions upon the Christian Left. Blame the Christian Left for what the ChristoFascists of the Reich-Wingers do.
It is the same trick that Adolph Hitler and his Aryian White Supremacist ChristoTaliban “Positive Christianity” Nazis did during WWII.
It is the same line of attack the ChristoTaliban invaders of this country and put the original inhabitants the Native Americans to death in their mass genocide against us. They demonized us, projected all their evil upon us and then it made it easier for other Christians to slaughter us.
It is the same line of attack the ChristoTalibans used against the Pagans when they invaded their countries in their forced conversion programs.
It is the same line of attack the ChristoTalibans used to put to brutal deaths those they proclaimed as witches, heretics and our scientists whom proved the religious Reich-Winger ChristoFascists wrong in their teachings and theology.
It is the same line of attack the ChristoTalibans used to go to war against each other. Catholics calling Protestants not True Christians and Protestants doing the same to Catholics, each demonizing and dehumanizing each other which made it easier for them to get their brain-washed and mind controlled zombie Christian followers to go out and slaughter each other just because they worshiped the same God and Jesus Christ in different ways.
This is the same kind of attack against the Christian Left, of which? There are many more True Christians in their midsts than there ever will be in the ChristoTaliban Fascist Reich-Wingers like the idiots of Andelino’s Reich-Wing blog. And this is why the Fake Christians like Andelino attack the True Christians of the Christian Left.
ChristoTalibans like this fool always play the projection and dehumanization game to denigrate and defame their opponents.
Conservative Christian Pastor Steven Anderson openly called for executing every gay person in America during a Sunday sermon at his church in Tempe, Arizona. He claimed from the pulpit that gays need to be put to death in the name of God by Christmas Day in an effort to wipe out AIDS, even though AIDS is not a virus exclusive to the LGBT community. Anderson opined
Turn to Leviticus 20:13, because I actually discovered the cure for AIDS. If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. And that, my friend, is the cure for AIDS. It was right there in the Bible all along — and they’re out spending billions of dollars in research and testing. It’s curable — right there. Because if you executed the homos like God recommends, you wouldn’t have all this AIDS running rampant.
Christian Pastor Mike Stahl Calls for a National Registry of Atheists
Megachurch Pastor says ‘gays must be put to death’
Claiming that being gay is a choice like drug abuse, the senior pastor for a megachurch in Tennessee says that “gays must be put to death” because God commands it.
Last Sunday, Brainerd Baptist Church Senior Pastor Robby Gallaty told his large congregation that Christians should never stop discriminating against homosexuals, claiming that gays could choose to be straight if they only accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Gallaty explained why gays should be put to death:
God said that the sins of the people had infected the very land in which they live. So what happens to people who engage in this activity, this sexual immoral activity? Go to Leviticus 20, God gives us the punishment for engaging in these sins… ‘If a man sleeps with a man as with a woman, they have both committed a detestable thing. They must be put to death. And their blood is on their own hands.’
Pastor Robby Gallaty Brainerd Baptist Church
Gallaty and Christians like him are dangerous individuals. Their perverse religious superstition allows them to advocate for death and discrimination against those they do not like and do not understand.
Pastor Who Works for TN Police Dept. Says Gays Should Be Executed By Police
All Scripture Baptist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee is one of those New Independent Fundamentalist Baptist churches that preaches hate, especially against LGBTQ people. A statement on the church’s website says “No homosexual will be allowed to attend or join All Scripture Baptist Church”… which is troubling since it implies a gay person actually wanted to attend that church.
Last week, Pastor Greg Fritts did what so many of these nasty pastors (Nastors?) do and said the Bible calls for the execution of LGBTQ people at the hands of the government. (It begins around the 27:04 mark. Update: The original video was taken down by YouTube. I still possess a copy. But for now, I’m posting a different version below.)
… The Bible says that they’re worthy of death. The Bible says that the government — somebody stands up, “Oh, I’m LGBTQ” — here’s how it should work: It shouldn’t work where we go out and we enforce the laws, because the Bible says the powers that be are ordained of God, and God has instilled the power of civil government to send the police in 2019 out to these LGBT freaks and arrest them and have a trial for them and if they are convicted than they are to be put to death.
Do you understand that? It is a capital crime that should be carried out by our government. Not Christians… unless you’re a policeman, you know what I mean? If you’re a policeman, then you know what? It should be your responsibility to carry these things out…
The sermon sparked an investigation by the Knox County District Attorney’s Office, which put out a statement saying it is further looking into the incident and will take action accordingly.
The Knox County Sheriff’s Office also put out a statement after reports surfaced that Fritts worked in the office. The statement said he is on paid leave until his buy out request if processed.
“I want to be very clear that it is my responsibility to ensure equal protection to ALL citizens of Knox County, Tennessee under the law, my oath and the United States Constitution without discrimination or hesitation. Rest assured that I have and will continue to do so,” Knox County Sheriff Tom Spangler said in the statement.
Tennessee Deputy/Pastor Calls For Execution Of LGBTQ Community
Gay-bashing North Carolina pastor Charles Worley: ‘Forty years ago… gays would have hung from an oak tree’
“We’re living in a day when it saddens my heart to think homosexuals can go around, bless God, and get the applause of a lot of people, lesbians and all the rest of it,” the pastor hisses in the audio clip.
“Forty years ago they would’ve hung, bless God, from a white oak tree! Wouldn’t they? Amen,” the pastor says.

Pastor Who Celebrated Orlando Massacre Gets 35 Years For Child Molestation
Anti-gay pastor who claimed Orlando massacre victims got “what they deserve” will probably spend the rest of his life in prison.
Pastor Ken Adkins was sentenced to life for aggravated child molestation earlier this week. Adkins will be eligible for parole after 35 years, but by that time he will be over 90 years old, and more than likely dead. If he does manage to live long enough to be released, he will spend the remainder of his life on probation.
Adkins, who had congregations in Atlanta, Jacksonville, and Brunswick, Georgia, was arrested late last summer on eight charges of child molestation and aggravated child molestation.
Before his arrest the controversial Georgia pastor had been a vocal and determined opponent of LGBT rights, and even went so far as to celebrate a horrific mass shooting that left 49 dead and scores more wounded at a gay nightclub in Florida.
Immediately after the horrific attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, Pastor Adkins tweeted the following:
Angry Young Preacher: The Bible Says Gay People Should Be Executed (Humanely)
We all had a good laugh at the 22-year-old preacher because the guy clearly had willfully ignorant gaps in his knowledge. But in a recent interview, he showed he’s so much worse than that.
In an interview with atheist YouTuber Skylar Fiction, Powell explained that the government should execute gay people. (It’s terrifying that anyone, much less a young person, would believe this. Yet it’s not out of the ordinary for someextremist Christians.)
… as far as homosexuality goes, you know, I believe the Bible puts the death penalty on it. I believe it’s disgusting. And incidentally, every scientific test has come back and said that homosexuals are 50 more times likely to get AIDS… we got this AIDS thing spreading… it’s a fact that this is the case.
Skylar probed further and asked if Powell really believed gay people should be killed.
There may be a Bible-based way to get out of that conversation, but Powell either didn’t know or didn’t care. He was happy to take the bait and run with it around the 8:05 mark.
SKYLAR: … you don’t believe that gay people should be stoned to death, do you?
POWELL: I believe the Bible puts the death penalty on it. Obviously, not by me or anybody in a regular society, obviously. I believe it’s the government’s job to execute criminals. I believe that the Bible says clearly that homosexuality is a criminal crime. It’s a crime. It’s one of the worst crimes ever.
SKYLAR: … Is that what you’re advocating for? That our government should stone gays to death to execute them?
POWELL: By whatever means they execute people. And obviously, I believe in humane, you know, putting to death.
SKYLAR: I think that’s a contradiction, what you’re saying. You can’t use the word “humane” and then say you’re gonna kill people who are gay.
POWELL: Right, but the thing is, I mean, whatever our government says, as far as, like, for a death penalty, I think should go for them.
SKYLAR: Wait… but no… you’re saying you agree the government should create laws… in order to execute gay people. That’s what you’re telling me?
POWELL: That’s what the Bible says. I believe the Bible. I didn’t write the Bible.
Skylar also asked if divorce or adultery warranted the death penalty. The answer, which Powell eventually sputtered out, was yes. Because that’s what the Bible commands. The same thing applied, he added, even when talking about his own kids being seriously disobedient.
Christian Pastor Michael Crook says atheists and homosexuals should be put to death
Blogger, author, troop-hater, and rape apologist, and all-around good guy “Reverend” Michael Crook feels there is a rape problem in America. The problem? The problem is that we think it exists. Oh, and atheists and gays should die. –
A leading Christian website has published a column in which a preacher and author describes 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg as bringing the “death rattle of a nation” with his homosexuality.
Writing for Charisma News, a website associated with the popular Christian magazine Charisma, Bert Farias decried how people are celebrating that a presidential candidate is publicly introducing, and even “kisses without shame,” his husband in the name of progressivism.
“The constant compromising of preachers to avoid controversy is creating much damage—not only to the world, which is looking for a clear sound from preachers, but also to believers who have little discernment or are growing tired of ambiguity,” Farias wrote.
“For example, one very influential and popular minister who has millions of followers was asked if homosexuality was wrong, and his general response was that his views were evolving. Evolving? That’s like saying the Bible is evolving. How pathetic of an answer.
“In fact, when those who practice such things that are ‘deserving of death’ also approve of others who practice them (Rom. 1:32), it is one of God’s final signs of His wrath on a society.
“This is a description of gay activism and constantly pushing for its normalcy and marginalizing those who disapprove. This is present-day America. How far we’ve fallen.”
Farias went on to claim that the shock factor of seeing two men kiss has been so reduced so much that “the rest of us are numb and desensitized to this most shameful and abominable behavior.”
Farias also suggested it was hypocritical to attack President Donald Trump over accusations of adultery and sexual assault if you do not question Buttigieg’s “abominable lifestyle.”
He added Trump has apologized for his past behavior, including boasting how he grabs woman “by the p****,” whereas Buttigieg is “pushing his homosexuality, not apologizing for it.”
“Buttigieg and others of his kind will do everything in his power to normalize homosexual relationships even more in the eyes of America,” Farias added. “They are products of what the Bible calls a “debased mind” or a mind void of judgment (Rom. 1:24, 26, 28) that God Himself has given them over to.
“Buttigieg will also do his best to marginalize those who are convinced that these relationships are contrary to the will of God.”
Buttigieg was also confronted by protesters from a group called Queers Against Pete at a fundraising event at the National LGBTQ Center for the Arts in San Francisco on Friday.
WATCH: This Christian Extremist Wants Gay Priests to Die
Theodore Shoebat, an antigay Christian extremist best known for his horrific video rants and columns published by right wing blogs, called for the execution of gay church leaders on Friday. Shoebat focused primarily on gay priests, claiming the Vatican is riddled with “homosexual hornets nests.”
In a lengthy and rambling video blog post, Shoebat listed multiple times he has tried to imitate other right wing video makers who ask controversial questions of unsuspecting authorities in the hopes that they’ll misspeak or say something that can be twisted to fit the filmmakers ideology. Shoebat’s post is full of complaints about Catholic leaders who’ve ignored his antics or shut him down entirely.
Shoebat claimed that gay priests and ministers are “suicide bombers” intent on infiltrating the church as a way to discredit Christianity.
“Once they become a pastor or a priest, they begin their destruction. And they only do this for one reason, and that is to make the church look bad, to make the church evil,” he said in the podcast. “It’s obvious that Satan knows homosexuality is evil and it’s also obvious to me that these very sodomites who enter the church, they as well know that homosexuality is evil because they do this so that other people can say, ‘See, this is Christianity.'”
“Civilization has no room for homosexuality.” Shoebat said in the video, as he pointed out that the Catholic Church once persecuted any priests discovered to be gay. They “would be delivered to the secular authorities and put to death,” he said, lamenting “it’s just too damn bad that we don’t have these laws being enacted any more.”
As Joe.My.God. blogger Joe Jervis points out, Shoebat is a darling of other religious opponents of LGBT rights.
“Shoebat currently appears in an anti-LGBT film created by hate group leader Janet Porter which also stars Porno Pete [Peter LaBarbera], Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, and other anti-LGBT activists,” Jervis wrote. “Shoebat regularly calls for the genocide of homosexuals, atheists, and Christians who support LGBT rights. It’s what Jesus would want.”
Watch below as Shoebat tells his audience about his conspiracy theories and calls for the execution of church leaders. Video courtesy of Right Wing Watch.
Westboro Baptist Church: Homosexuals Should Be Put to Death
‘Kill The Gays’ Bill Pastor Scott Lively Declares Self Most Persecuted Man In America
https://www.wonkette.com/kill-the-gays-pastor-scott-lively-declares-self-most-persecuted-man-in-america Back in 2009, Scott Lively and two other American pastors held a big conference in Uganda in order to tell government officials all about how evil gay people are, how they maybe were responsible for the entire Rwandan genocide, how they wanted to destroy families, and how best to make them all straight. It took five years, and changing “execution” to “life imprisonment,” but Uganda finally passed the Kill the Gays bill introduced immediately after Lively’s big trip. (For the record, Lively thought the whole execution thing was a bit excessive although he agreed “with the general goal.”)
If Scott Lively is known for one thing, he is known for really hating gay people. It is his entire personal brand. He wrote a book called The Pink Swastika in which he claimed that gay people were the ones who invented Nazism and then decided to throw themselves into concentration camps for being gay. And these are the titles of his other books!
Seven Steps to Recruit-Proof Your Child: A Parent’s Guide to Protecting Children from Homosexuality and the “Gay” Movement (1998) Why and How to Defeat the “Gay” Movement (2000) Redeeming the Rainbow: A Christian Response to the “Gay” Agenda (2009)
As you can see, he has committed to this bit. He’s not out there talking about other aspects of Christianity or writing books about the joys of model train collecting. If you Google him, pretty much all that comes up are the terrible things he has said about gay people. Although, to be fair, he did call for the death penalty for performing abortions last month and also once got a nice thrill up his leg from an explosion at a strip club in which 18 people were injured. That is about as diversified as his personality portfolio gets.
Christian TV Host Rick Wiles: We Will Impose Christian Rule In This Country
Dreams of a Christian theocracy: Christian TV Host Rick Wiles claims that conservative Christians will “impose Christian rule in this country.”
Right Wing Watch reports that Wiles, host of TruNews, a television “news” program produced for conservative Christians, “praised Alabama’s radical new anti-abortion law and warned that those who support reproductive rights will spend eternity being ‘aborted continuously forever’ by demons in Hell” on the Wednesday night edition of his program.
In his rant Wiles said:
We Christians are standing up and pushing out Zionism. That’s what we’re doing. Zionism brought the slaughter of 65 million babies to America and we’re going to end it and we are going to impose Christian rule in this country.
Why are you imposing Judaism on me? Because that’s exactly what’s been done in America since 1973 with Roe v. Wade. Judaism was imposed on me, on my Christian nation and we became a Jewish nation that kills babies. That’s against my Christian beliefs.
Judaism became the law of the land in America. That’s precisely what the courts have ruled. They have based their rulings on the Zohar, on the Talmud, and now we have Zionistic Talmudic law ruling this country and resulting in the death of millions of babies.
We Christians are standing up and we’re telling you that we’re done with Zionism, we’re done with your values. We are going to impose Christian values in America again, whether you like it or not.
Judge strikes down proposed ‘Sodomite Suppression Act’
Saying a proposed ballot measure calling for the killing of gay people is “patently unconstitutional on its face,” a Sacramento County judge has ruled that California’s attorney general can halt the proposal.
Saying a proposed ballot measure calling for the killing of gay people is “patently unconstitutional on its face,” a Sacramento County judge has ruled that California’s attorney general can halt the proposal.
With the judge’s ruling, the so-called Sodomite Suppression Act will not move forward to the signature-gathering phase and cannot be placed on a future ballot. The proposal, submitted by Huntington Beach, Calif., attorney Matthew McLaughlin, sought to authorize the murder of gays and lesbians by “bullets to the head” or “any other convenient method.”
“This proposed act is the product of bigotry, seeks to promote violence, is patently unconstitutional and has no place in a civil society,” California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris said in a statement Tuesday.
Christian Attorney Matthew McLaughlin’s disgusting Sodomite Suppression Act ballot initiative
The measure, upon voter approval, would have mandated California to put to death any person who “willingly touches another person of the same gender for purposes of sexual gratification.” The initiative classifies this group of people as “sodomites.” It would also have made it a crime to distribute “sodomistic propaganda” to “any person under the age of majority.” Being a “sodomite” or distributing “sodomistic propaganda” would have disqualified one from serving in public office or public employment and from enjoying any public benefit
Penal Code section 39
a) The abominable crime against nature known as buggery, called also sodomy, is a monstrous evil that Almighty God, giver of freedom and liberty, commands us to suppress on pain of our utter destruction even as he overthrew Sodom and Gomorrha.
b) Seeing that it is better that offenders should die rather than that all of us should be killed by God’s just wrath against us for the folly of tolerating-wickedness in our midst, the People of California wisely command, in the fear of God, that any person who willingly touches another person of the same gender for purposes of sexual gratification be put to death by bullets to the head or by any other convenient method.
c) No person shall distribute, perform, or transmit sodomistic propaganda directly or indirectly by any means to any person under the age of majority. Sodomistic propaganda is defined as anything aimed at creating an interest in or an acceptance of human sexual relations other than between a man and a woman. Every offender shall be fined $1 million per occurrence, and/or imprisoned up to 10 years, and/or expelled from the boundaries of the state of California for up to life.
d) No person shall serve in any public office, nor serve in public employment, nor enjoy any public benefit, who is a sodomite or who espouses sodomistic propaganda or who belongs to any group that does.
e) This law is effective immediately and shall not be rendered ineffective nor invalidated by any court, state or federal, until heard by a quorum of the Supreme Court of California consisting only of judges who are neither sodomites nor subject to disqualification hereunder.
f) The state has an affirmative duty to defend and enforce this law as written, and every member of the public has standing to seek its enforcement and obtain reimbursement for all costs and attorney’s fees in so doing, and further, should the state persist in inaction over 1 year after due notice, the general public is empowered and deputized to execute all the provisions hereunder extra-judicially, immune from any charge and indemnified by the state against any and all liability.
g) This law shall be known as “The Sodomite Suppression Act” and be numbered as section 39 in Title 3 of the Penal Code, pertaining to offences against the sovereignty of the state. The text shall be prominently posted in every public school classroom. All laws in conflict with this law are to that extent invalid
‘Shoot the Gays’ initiative countered by ‘Intolerant Jackass Act’
A Southern California attorney’s “shoot the gays” initiative is apparently headed for circulation. While some of its would-be targets have asked the State Bar to take action against the author, a local writer, politician and TV commentator is suggesting a more in-your-face expression of disapproval: the “Intolerant Jackass Act.”
Charlotte Laws said she mailed her proposed ballot initiative to the state attorney general’s office on Monday with the same $200 fee that attorney Matt McLaughlin paid last month to submit his initiative, which he titled the “Sodomite Suppression Act.” Warning of “God’s just wrath” for “tolerating wickedness in our midst,” McLaughlin’s measure would require that anyone who touches a person of the same gender for sexual gratification be put to death “by bullets to the head or by any other convenient method.” It would also make advocacy of gay rights, to an audience that includes minors, a crime punishable by 10 years in prison and permanent expulsion from California.
Laws’ initiative, which invokes the “love of liberty and tolerance,” would label the author of any ballot measure calling for the killing of gays and lesbians an “intolerant jackass.” Such a person would have to attend at least three hours a month of sensitivity training for a year and contribute $5,000 to a pro-gay or pro-lesbian organization.
It was “just a way to speak back to this intolerant individual lawyer in Orange County,” Laws told The Chronicle on Tuesday, a day after her counter-stroke was first reported by Slate.com. “I felt that ridiculing him was the best way to take away his power. … It basically gives our state a bad name.
Laws is an activist against revenge porn and has been a neighborhood council member and a city commissioner in Los Angeles.
She said she doesn’t intend to actually circulate the initiative for the November 2016 ballot, but has submitted it to Attorney General Kamala Harris’ office for an official title and summary, just like McLaughlin. Legal analysts have generally agreed that Harris is required by law to issue a title and summary to anyone who pays the filing fee, thus clearing the measure for circulation — even if, like a proposal to murder one’s fellow citizens, it’s obviously unconstitutional. Harris is scheduled to clear McLaughlin’s measure in early May.
McLaughlin, who practices law in Huntington Beach, has been an attorney since 1998. In 2004 he proposed another initiative that would have distributed the King James bible as literature to students in California public schools. He hasn’t given interviews on his current initiative proposal.
An initiative needs 365,000 valid signatures to make the ballot. Even if McLaughlin could collect that many signatures, the state Supreme Court has the power to remove measures from the ballot on constitutional grounds.
Curtis Knapp, Kansas Pastor Who Said Government Should Kill Gays, Defends Statements
“We punish pedophilia,” Pastor Curtis Knapp of the New Hope Baptist Church in Seneca, Kan. “We punish incest, we punish polygamy and various things. It’s only homosexuality that is lifted out as an exemption.”
A prominent North Carolina pastor, Ron Baity, has joined the chorus of voices speaking out in favor of Amendment One, which would define marriage as being between a man and a woman in the state’s constitution.
Ron Baity, founding pastor of Winston-Salem’s Berean Baptist Church and head of the anti-marriage equality organization Return America, referred to homosexuality as “a perverted lifestyle” in a Sunday sermon before telling his congregation that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people should be prosecuted, Good as You is reporting.
“For 300 years, we had laws that would prosecute that lifestyle,” he is quoted as saying. “We’ve gone down the wrong path. We’ve become so dumb that we have accepted a lie for the truth, and we’ve…discarded the truth on the shoals of shipwreck!”
Tim Rabon, North Carolina Pastor, Slams Gay Marriage, Suggests Unions Between ‘Person And A Beast’ Could Be Next
Good As You is reporting that Tim Rabon, pastor at Raleigh’s Beacon Baptist Church, condemned states such as Massachusetts, Connecticut and Maryland which have already “re-defined” marriage to include lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) couples.
“Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and crack that wrist,” he said. “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.”
Pastor Sean Harris, Who Advocated Parents ‘Punch’ Effeminate Children, Defends Sermon, Compares Himself To Jesus
The North Carolina pastor whose violent anti-gay rant blew up across the blogosphere, said in an interview that his message to parents in a sermon — to “punch” a boy who is effeminate and “crack that wrist” if he is limp-wristed — were taken out of the “context of a ministry,” and that he meant them “figuratively,” claiming that Jesus, too, in the Bible, “conjures up violent images.”
Pastor Sean Harris of the Barean Baptist Church in Fayetteville, N.C. retracted the statements of violence but continued to defend his comments about the “importance of gender distinctions that God created,” as well his condemnation of homosexuality, citing the Bible. But he was not able to explain other passages in the Bible, such as those condoning slavery, saying he didn’t realize the interview would “slant and redirect the conversation.”
“I had no idea that the video would be chopped and posted in the blogosphere in a such a manner in which the entirety isn’t understood,” Harris said in an interview on my radio program on SiriusXM OutQ yesterday. “Those were not the best choice of words. If I had to do it over again again I would not choose those words. I was using hyperbole in an effort to communicate the importance of the gender distinctions that God created. I would offer an apology to anyone I have offended. I don’t make an apology for those gender distinctions that are the word of God.”
