North Carolina isn’t the only place where pastors are calling for the murder of gay people, Kansas has them too. And I’m not talking about Fred Phelps, I’m talking about Pastor Curtis Knapp of New Hope Baptist Church in Seneca, Kansas, who said during a recent sermon:
“They should be put to death. That’s what happened in Israel. That’s why homosexuality wouldn’t have grown in Israel. It tends to limit conversions. It tends to limit people coming out of the closet. — ‘Oh, so you’re saying we should go out and start killing them, no?’ — I’m saying the government should. They won’t but they should. [You say], ‘oh, I can’t believe you you’re horrible. You’re a backwards neanderthal of a person.’ Is that what you’re calling scripture? Is God a neanderthal backwards.. in his morality. Is it his word or not? If it’s his word, he commanded it. It’s his idea, not mine. And I’m not ashamed of it.”
Yes, that’s what I’m calling “scripture” — utterly barbaric and bigoted, just like you.
