William Owens Thinks He’s a Civil Rights Leader

There’s something rather perverse about the black Christian pastors who spend all their time and energy trying to deny equal rights to LGBT people while claiming to be civil rights leaders. Rev. William Owens says that they must be willing to die to stop equality the way MLK Jr died to bring it about.

Constantine: When I talk to people around the country, I always hear support for traditional marriage and yet the gay movement continues to march on, some in the legislature, mostly in the courts. Have we gone to a place where we can’t turn back or can common sense prevail once again?

Owens: We can turn back but it’s going to take another civil rights movement to reclaim our rights. We must be willing to suffer, we must be willing to die, we must be willing to go to jail, that’s what it is going to take to turn around what these idiots have put in motion.

Sorry, you aren’t Martin Luther King. You’re the exact opposite.

The disgraceful thing about gay people adopting children: Two men, one pretending to be a woman; two women, one pretending to be a man. It’s absolutely disgraceful. When you do the studies, when you look at families, children need a female mother and a male father. I have two babies, I’ve got one one-year-old and one two-years-old, and those children know the difference in their mother and their dad. It’s just deplorable with this president, and I put it at the feet of the president, because he’s the one giving all of these orders as if he’s Almighty God, kingdom high, to embrace the community of gay parades, gays in the White House, he has endorsed it and has taken our course on a terribly slippery slope on the morals of this country.

You blame Obama for this? Hell, Obama was way late to the party on LGBT equality.

    This from an idiot pretending not to be a bigot.

    1. Translated from Fundiespeak to English, this means, Send me more money!!! Lots of money!!!

    The Eskimos have dozens of words for snow. Fundies have hundreds of phrases that all mean the same, Send me more money!!!

    2. Of course, William Owens doesn’t mean he is willing to suffer, die, or go to jail. He wants you to do so. He has better things to do. Like spend your money.

    3. And just how are they going to die. Suicide bombers attacking county courthouses? Assassinating elected officials. Car bombings of gay pride parades. Rev. William Owens is an admitted terrorist wannabe. I’m sure the DHS/FBI are about to pay him a visit.

    Uh, what rights are they trying to reclaim? The right to use the power of the state to make life miserable for people they don’t like?

  • howardhershey

    Funny how the “we” who must be willing to suffer, die, or (more likely) go to jail doesn’t include him. I haven’t heard of him doing something that would even threaten him with jail (which does include some suffering), much less death. Just a lot of blather about how someone else should do that something.

    By 1950ish traditional values Owens would be lynched. I’m sure he’d be okay with that, its tradition.

    Willing to suffer what? Willing to die from what? Willing to go to jail because of what? Who is threatening to kill people who are against same-sex marriage? Who is sending them to jail? Who is making them “suffer”?

    While I know fundagelical Christianity is built on a persecution complex the size of Idaho, you’d think eventually the flock would notice that these these “leaders” who keep praising their own courage for standing up to arrest and execution are never actually arrested or executed.

    It’s a pity Owens isn’t able to use the word jihad, because it kind of sounds like he wants his own Boko Harām, but with more Jesus.

    We must be willing to suffer

    To be sidelined and watch teh ghey become part of a rational and egalitarian society…

    we must be willing to die

    Not we actually but fucktards with jeebus on their side and a fully automatic weapon shooting the fuck out of a ghey pryde parade, every movement must have its martyrs to die in a hail of condemnation, and maybe a cop bullet, but the WND will run a obit about these heroes, because they were pushed to it by an uncaring and godless supreme court.

    Because that is what this fucking disgrace to humanity actually wants, and what he is strongly subliminally suggesting to the chronically unhinged in his congregation.

    Of course a few tutt tutts and weak fatuous condolences to the bereaved and injured is mandatory, so too a snide comment or two about they brought in on themselves, and bizzyness as usual Owens waltzes away humming amazing grace…he did not pull the trigger.

    we must be willing to go to jail

    No the erstwhile heroes that drool after this vicious eejijt’s words must be willing, he is giving them the jihadi equivalent of last words of encouragement and Allah’s blessings before sending them to blow up kiddies and women in a crowded market place…all religio fundy fucktards, no matter of what delusion, drool at that act of martyrdom, nothing pleases fundies more then the death toll inflicted on innocents…they love it, it gives them peace because it is gods will amirite?

    that’s what it is going to take to turn around what these idiots have put in motion

    Wah! wah! wah!….how dare they take away my god given right to discriminate and feel righteously bigoted…

    Thing is, that black cat is well out of the bag…ain’t nuthin’ gonna’ get it back in there….I think chummy knows that deep down, but there remains a possibility that other types of misery can be inflicted on that community, that is indeed what Yahweh would do…and plainly what Owens fervently desires!

    A good xtian has to have some light relief after-all!

    Well it’s official batshit crazy is going epidemic with outspoken religious people… Ya telling people they must be willing to die to continue discriminating against the gays. (Get the man a swastika and and a mustache.)

    Another civil rights movement? Uhmmm… Well for the LBGT I think they’re doing a good job of fighting for their civil rights, but as good citizens we should support them. (As for this guy I suggest he get a white sheet and and hood, so when he looks in the mirror he can see what side he is really on.)
