I've seen a few, usually due to knowing someone in that particular area who attends the church or is in the congregation, and I haven't seen one time yet they haven't been relieved of their duties.
Remember that dipshit in Tennessee that refused to marry an interracial couple and said it was wrong? Media had a field day with that. Guess what? He was booted from the ministry within days. I don't mean transferred to another church. He was relieved of his duties.
didn't know....guess they hushed it enough that we didn't hear out west.

You'll see a lot of bashing of the christians/religious. Funny thing is, you can find a lot of people who will dig until they find a story. This is one story out of how many? I know most southern towns have more churches than bars, so...that is like saying you found a cookie at Nabisco to hear a stupid comment out of tens of thousands of churches.
Point taken.

Ahhhhhh.....another mouth breather decides to go the fire and brimstone route while not understanding what he was calling for.
Yeah..but good lord, why do they get a free pass when anyone else would be demonized....


You're aware that 99% of these dickwads get ran out of their church shortly after, right? It just doesn't make good news coverage, so they ignore that or put it on page 487 of the paper.
He'll catch ten pounds of hell for that stupid comment, primarily for threatening to harm children, but the churches usually operate out of the media spotlight when it comes to internal matters.


Either that or he'll get invited to the conservative lecture and right wing talk show circuit as a victim of "anti-religion" bigotry or a victim of the "homosexual agenda".

But he will flip tables and take a bullwhip to people Simon Belmont style. Which is pretty violent if you've seen the damage that bullwhips can do.

Yeah, but, that was a special occasion where people were being conned in usury style manner on exchange rates for money right in front of the temple.

And, for all the screaming right wingers like to make that the U.S. is a christian state, well, why the hell are they guys christ actually took a bullwhip to running the place?

Hmmm?

As for the pastor, I wish he was a 1 in 10,000 guy. He's not. And people like him hold too much influence in politics for my liking.

What community? The community of that town? How many people do you know with sentiments like these?
If nothing else, the guy has some stones. I mean he must have known the shitstorm that would ensue from him saying these things.

I had never heard the bullwhip part before. That's kind of hilarious, actually.

Perhaps not exactly the same desire to beat up on us effeminate guys, but a considering the population of conservative Christians in the US who share similar anti-homosexual sentiments, his comment is not only NOT surprising, but represents an aspect of society that actually thinks like that.

As to how many people I know personally who would agree with that, I do know a few. I got beaten up enough to that effeminate guys are not welcome in the change rooms.

You refer to the Religious Right, I suppose?
