Christian Pastor: If Gay Marriage is Legalized, We Should Be Ready to Burn to Death

Texas pastor Rick Scarborough (below) is one of those people who thinks marriage equality marks the beginning of the end for Christians everywhere.

While nothing will actually change for the worse if gay people can get married, try telling that to him. On a recent conference call for the National Emergency Coalition, Scarborough explained how Christians should prepare to face the death penalty:

We are not going to bow, we are not going to bend, and if necessary, we will burn.

The preachers need to get out front, the leaders need to get out front, in front of these ordinary citizens and say, “Shoot me first.”

Does Scarborough think sacrificing pastors is the gay-marriage equivalent of a Jewish man stepping on a glass?

This is the sort of hyperbole that some Christians preach that their followers just accept without question. It’s bullshit, and it’s all part of the act.

But take that, Australian couple threatening to get divorced. Scarborough’s gonna set himself on fire!

By the way, Scarborough is the same guy who once threatened to file a class-action lawsuit against all gay people. Because, just like tobacco, they harm society.
