I love it when these people destroy each other. That needs to happen more often.

By his own argument, the only way male knows he is straight is because he has in the past had sex with men and not found it satisfactory.

On the other hand, like so many haters, he found it so satisfactory he now spends his life repressing his feelings and trying rather too hard to look straight……..

This guy seems like he’s treating it all as a joke, laughing about it even, he may believe some pretty fucked up things…but he’s certainly not taking it as far as I’d have thought.

That’s different from David Bahati and “Money Shot Martin” Ssempa who (in the interviews I’ve seen at least) seem to have no sense of humor and take themselves SO seriously. Those guys have something to prove. They don’t just have to be right, they have to be righter than right, and you get the impression they’d go bananas and hurt somebody if proven wrong to the point where they couldn’t just blow it off.

This dude just seemed like a typical Pentecostal bullshit artist pastor to me. He’s not exactly harmless, probably not the sharpest tool in the shed, either. He’s a salesman…ultimately, a deciever. This is why I think that;

Notice how he kept trying to twist the interviewer’s words and didn’t quite get that the interviewer was pulling HIS chain? That tells me a lot about this guy, but he was friendly, and laughing even when dealing with a gay man. If he can’t prove his point to you, that’s OK, he’ll move on to the next sucker. I’d say he’s mostly in it for the money, and maybe has (in a street smart rather than intelligent way) a better understanding of reality than Bahati or Mr. Eat da poopoo.

Now that I’ve seen him speak…his part in the false accusations against the other guy makes a lot of sense to me. It’s ALL about the money for him.

He didn’t even bring religion into the conversation, which to me is pretty shocking, especially since he KNEW he was dealing with a gay person.
