You remember the story of the church that violently tried to remove a gay man’s “homosexual demon”:
And perhaps you also remember how the pastor at Manifested Glory Ministries Church, Patricia McKinney, didn’t talk very coherently during her interview with CNN.
Syndicated columnist Leonard Pitts, Jr. has a question for McKinney and members of her church: What does a Homosexual Demon look like?
I know you’re up against it right now, but I want to assure you: I’m not here to beat up on you, or to accuse you of being the bigots you say you aren’t, or to call you a bunch of backwards mouth breathers who abused a confused teenaged boy. No, I’m just hoping you’ll tell me what a homosexual demon looks like. I’m scared I may unknowingly run into one, so please help me sharpen my demon gaydar.
Actually, if you could run down all the various types of demons and ways to ferret them out, I’d be grateful.
Not to leave the impression I’m entirely demon illiterate. I do know a few.
For instance: the demons of fear, stupidity and intolerance. You don’t need to tell me what they look like.
I already have a good idea.
Of course, the point is that they’re making it all up. No such demon exists and the church members are delusional when they think they’re doing something productive in beating the young man.
