James David Manning isn’t the only black fundamentalist preacher who thinks gay people should be stoned to death. Pastor Earl Carter of the Church of God in Christ in Orlando went on a vile rant in an interview in which he said that he wants gays stoned to death and that his goal is to “terrorize this country in the name of the lord.”
“I don’t hate gays, I’m just like the doctor who hates disease, I fight the disease,” Carter added. “My gospel is like chemotherapy. We try to get to the disease. And the police fighting crime, what are we fighting? Or are we making concessions for these sins?”
The pastor said that if he were able to express his true feelings, “then I’ll be whipping sissies. You’re talking about gay bashing, it would be gay stoning.”“You’re turning out these boys in the bathrooms and everywhere and schools,” Carter continued. “I’m going to tell you how I feel about Obama, how I feel about Oprah, how I feel about anybody that supports the Democratic Party. Sometimes they [are] immoral. They just don’t have any morals at all.”…
“Barack Obama that believes in same-sex marriage, he’s going to be judged. Oprah Winfrey going to be judged. Al Sharpton, all of those people that says it’s alright,” he insisted. “You saying it’s alright for a man to stick his penis in a cesspool? Are you crazy?”
Carter concluded by asking people to buy a DVD of his sermon so he could make enough money to “terrorize this country in the name of the Lord.”
If you think the moral thing to do in any situation whatsoever is to stone someone, you’re a fucked up, malevolent human being.
