Another year that I have a holiday piece of bigotry. I am getting really annoyed by this. I suppose that I shouldn’t be surprised by the fact that it is a Baptist. If there is a more bigoted sect of Fundie Christards, I don’t know what it is. We live in an age when acceptance of the LGBT community is so much higher than its ever been, but then you see people like this, who are complete pieces of shit and are certain that God has their back. If I was a religious person, I would feel so ashamed to be in the same group as this person. So, what did he do? Well, here’s a link, so you can see it for yourself, now let’s dissect this fucking asshole.
See, this fellow has himself an idea on how to cure AIDS. He says that it’s in the Bible! Well, that’s neat. So, where is it? Oh, right, Leviticus 20:13. You know, the passage and verse where they say that a man lying with a man should be killed. That’s right, he wants to kill gay people. No joke, he wants to kill them. In his words, that would solve AIDS by Christmas.
You know, it never ceases to amaze me how Christians are so cool with evil people representing them. I get with Baptists, they are all either fucking idiots are totally evil. But how can the rest be kosher with the fact that this is a holy man? He is representing God to a congregation who believes him. You think any of these people might actually do it? You think that any of these people will actually kill a gay person? It happens. It happens all the time. I grew up in a red state. One of my gay girly-mates had to take a TON of shit when she was outed by a girl who didn’t want to be thought of as gay when she was caught. Got the shit kicked out of her by the boyfriends of a bunch of girls who love Jesus. How are Christians not shamed by this? Or, if they are, how are they so quiet about it.
And this guy is full of shit. I mean, he’s using Leviticus to defend his position, yet wears mixed fabrics. This guy ever eat shellfish? He have a problem with tattoos? Unless this stupid fucker is willing to go for all of it, then why does he do this? Oh, right, because he hates gay people and needs something to justify his bigotry. That way, he can tell people – I don’t hate gay people. I hate their sin. It’s the oldest story in the book – cherry-picking the Bible to justify bigotry.
Naturally, the guy also has to go on about how gays and lesbians are also pedophiles. Another argument that is old as fucking dirt. For real, he throws fucking tantrums about the idea that people can be gay and Christian. You know, I kind of get that. I mean, when you have a book that has a passage talking about how gay people should be killed, why would you want to believe in something like that? That seems very counter-intuitive.
You know the worst part of this – it is another person who spreads horrifically-malicious ignorance about AIDS and how it spreads. Like it’s never spreads among straight people, from unprotected sex? Yeah, that’s never happened. I mean, Africa is filled with nothing but gay people, right? It has nothing to do with Christian dogma telling them that condoms don’t prevent the spread of HIV. Nope, not at all. It’s just the gays. If all gay people die, the AIDS will go away.
Where do you think sociopaths like this come from? They can’t just materialize out of the ether. Way I see it, he was some poor man who had a boyfriend that didn’t love him back, and after it got ugly and ended, then the Preacher man decided that he hated all gay people. It makes sense, if you consider how he probably had self-loathing from growing up in a neighborhood full of bigots.
All joking aside, this man is a horrible person. Anybody in his congregation is a horrible person. Anyone who agrees with this position is a horrible person, and I hope that they end up miserable and alone. You can’t be this kind of hateful and be happy. I just don’t believe it. But don’t you worry. All you have to do is tell Jesus how much you love him, and you’re golden.
After all, Hitler could have done it, and he could be the greatest redemption story ever told.
