This is disgusting.
As tempting as it is to get into the mudslinging, cooler heads need to step up and speak truth to both extremes.
The pastor is now saying he “misspoke.” He is also saying he was taken out of context. This is ridiculous since his own words were quoted and available on audio. He could say he regrets advocating smacking gender non-conforming kids but he has to blame others first for his careless words. This is one of those non-apology, apologies.
