Another Baptist minister, this time in New Zealand, is openly calling for gay people — “filthy faggots,” as he calls them — to commit suicide. Failing that, he hopes the government will kill them all. Because we’ll know they are Christians by their love, amirite?
Pastor Logan Robertson of the Westcity Bible Baptist Church in Auckland, New Zealand wrote the email to Jim Marjoram, author of the book ‘It’s Life Jim,’ written to promote a more gay-friendly Christianity, reports The New Zealand Herald
In the email, Robertson wrote, “We are not interested in your filthy lifestyle or book. The Bible says you are vile, strange (queer), reprobate, filth, sodomite, natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed. I pray that you will commit suicide, you filthy child molesting fag.”
After being informed that his email had created outrage on social media, Robertson denied doing anything wrong, telling NZME News Service, “I didn’t tell him to go and commit suicide. I said I prayed that he would. All I did was write what I wrote, and then I prayed about it that he would, and that’s it. There’s nothing more to say.”…An openly gay reporter from One News attempted to speak with Robertson to allow him to defend the email, but Robertson — who admitted he was familiar with the reporter’s sexual orientation — said he wouldn’t give an interview to a “filthy faggot,” adding that he hoped that reporter would commit suicide too.
In a later interview, Robertson admitted, “I think every single one of them should be put to death. Christians shouldn’t be doing it, I’m not going to do it, it’s the Government’s job to be doing it.”
Oh, of course. Christians shouldn’t kill gay people, that would be wrong. They should just demand that the government do it because that will totally absolve them of responsibility.
