Church Member Defends Pastor Worley’s Electric Fence

You see, part of the problem is that when Pastor Charles Worley said that “I figured a way out  to get rid of all the lesbians and queers” by putting them behind an electric fence, it was all taken out of context.

I just don’t know what to say in the face of such towering, self-centred, condescending, emotionally dead, herculean, invincible stupidity.

Truly, a piece of work.

But Ivan, that said, I enjoyed your comment.

Jeee yiminy!

Sometimes, I cannot believe how jaw dropping dumb some people are in their OWN HYPOCRISY!!
Her eye rolling impatience with AC, was just symptomatic of not having any concern with how inconsistently and selectively religious people actually live their lives.
The pastor MEANT what he said, and can’t even own it.
People like her, and her pastor, so quick to incite the MOB mentality. So indifferent to the risks they put gay people in, as if it’s not a serious reality in OUR country, let alone the middle East.

I do NOT like people that dumb and incapable of rubbing to critical thoughts together, I REALLY don’t.

I give her a lot of credit. She did a great job in helping to further redefine the public image of Christianity in America. :)

What other ‘context’ is there for a speech like Worley’s other than being heard in The Onion or Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest?

And where are the congregation members and notable Christians lining up to be interviewed to decry this sort of violent homophobia?

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
