'Let's threaten gays with death as the Muslims do', says Christian wingnut

'Let's threaten gays with death as the Muslims do', says Christian wingnut May 26, 2010

FRONT man for a barking mad fundamentalist Christian Ministry, which brings Christian punk rock to US public schools – and has strong ties with the Republican Party of Minnesota – has called on Americans to take a leaf out of the Islamists’ book and start threatening gays with death.

The gormless Bradlee Dean. This is what happen to a person if he's dropped on his head as a child.
According to this report, Bradlee Dean, of the loopily-named You Can Run But You Cannot Hide ministry, said that Muslim calling for the execution of gays and lesbians are:

More moral than even the American Christians.

Ranting on a local radio station, Dean said:

Muslims are calling for the executions of homosexuals in America. This just shows you they themselves are upholding the laws that are even in the Bible of the Judeo-Christian God, but they seem to be more moral than even the American Christians do, because these people are livid about enforcing their laws. They know homosexuality is an abomination.

He added:

If America won’t enforce the laws, God will raise up a foreign enemy to do just that. The bottom line is this … they [homosexuals] play the victim when they are, in fact, the predator.

Dean then made a claim that has no basis in fact:

On average, they molest 117 people before they’re found out. How many kids have been destroyed, how many adults have been destroyed because of crimes against nature?

If the boy isn’t on drugs, he sure ought to be. There are some pretty powerful anti-psychosis remedies out there that he might like to try.
Mark Knief, president of the Minnesota chapter of the Log Cabin Republicans, said Dean’s words were some of the “most outrageous lies I’ve ever heard.”
He added:

This should be a grave concern with any candidate that is supporting them.

The ministry has become increasingly cozy with Minnesota Republicans. During the past few months, You Can Run has attended two Republican Party of Minnesota events and garnered the support of top Republican officials.
Phil Duran, legal director for OutFront Minnesota, condemned Dean’s statement about executing gays.

It’s pretty shocking to read people criticizing Christians and Americans because they don’t, as a rule, go out and actually kill gay people. There are those who rely on attitudes like this – and attitudes not nearly so extreme – to justify acts of violence, harassment or discrimination, to justify continued exclusion of same-sex couples from the law, to rationalize the imposition of so-called ‘reparative therapy’ to ‘fix’ people, and to oppose safe-schools legislation.

He added:

The question that concerns me is: how many people out there look at comments like this and agree? Hopefully, very few.

And just to finish off, here’s Polish Catholic-sedevacantist priest RafaÅ‚ Trytek yearning for a return of those “wonderful times” when homosexuals – or “faggots” as he insists on calling them – were burned at the stake. Trytek is linked to the neo-fascist National Revival of Poland Party.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCmzXZu70jY UPDATE: DrCancerman has just alerted us to the fact that a pramful of Pakistani Muslims are calling on the United Nations to outlaw the “blasphemy of prophets” and impose “the death penalty on violators.”

The ambassadors of Muslim and non-Muslim states will be told that blasphemy against prophets not only hurts the feelings of one religion but also sows a seed of hatred against the people of other religions.

    “The question that concerns me is: how many people out there look at comments like this and agree? Hopefully, very few.”
    Problem is I don’t think it is very few. People with violent attitude towards gays are more common than a lot of us might like to acknowledge.

  • Angela_K

    These people are sick. I agree with Noname that there are a lot of anti-gay people who could be influenced into violence by these vile christians. The christians/muzzies would soon whinge if we suggested throwing a muzzie to the christians and the christians to lions? Hey what a great idea!

  • Broadsword

    Bradlee Dean is dressed up like a singer from an early 80’s British heavy metal band. It was a good look for its time, but now appears naff and a little camp. Bet he’s got a pink shiny nightie in his his wardrobe.
    I haven’t heard his band’s music but as a listener that’s all I’d be interested in. Celebrities who try and tell me what to think lose my support. It’s a shame there really are people receptive to the shite peddled by bigots in Dean’s position. Tabloid masses, sheep and homunculi unable to form their own opinions.

  • Barry Duke

    Y’Know, Broadsword, when I found that picture of the posturing jerk, I did wonder whether he “lifted luggage” for the likes of George Alan Rekers in his spare time.

  • Broadsword

    Just a thought
    The name of Dean’s band, Christian Ministry, would have made them a non-starter with anyone I know. Just to call themselves Christian anything would hint at load of bollocks best avoided.
    I suppose his fan base is composed of religiots who share his bigotry anyway so he’s preaching to the converted. No-one sane would pay for this shit so I doubt he’ll be acquiring any new souls.

  • barriejohn

    He presumably ignores all the verses in the Bible that refer to it being shameful for men to wear their hair long, then? Another myopic, bigoted hypocrite spewing forth bile and hatred in the name of his “Loving Saviour”!

  • AngieRS

    Charming. Still, he looks a nice boy. As for the Polish idiot, any day now we’ll get blamed for the flooding in Poland instead of the beavers and water voles.

  • Har Davids

    It’s great that sites like this one exist, but I sometimes despair when I read about ‘modern’ people and their violent fantasies. We either need a cure for bigotry, or a ways to kill all bigots, it seems. I wonder if I could promote the killing of people I don’t like for some personal reason, without running into problems with some law, but this Polish messenger of the ‘Prince of Peace’ doesn’t seem to be bothered at all by the camera. Who led this piss-hole of country into the EU?

    Or you can just go about your normal business and ignore these nutters.

    Whatever happened to Silent Bob?

  • Broga

    Where do they get those names: Bradlee? And the pert, mousy little face, with the long hair and the psuedo Viking helmet. This is a boy pretending to be a man; a weakling posturing toughness and a sad shadow of a human being. When you are as sad and pathetic as this dumbfuck seems to be you make outrageous statements. Put Bradlee face to face with a threat and this little screwball would be off like a rat up a drainpipe.

  • Broadsword

    @Broga
    People look much nicer when they smile and your man there is obviously posturing (unconvincingly) as you say. You’ve obviously decided which part of his face you’d bite off if you got him down, but forgot to tell us.

  • Barry Duke

    Oh Bob “The Nob” Hutton is not silent. He’s barred from trolling this blog, but continues pestering me with silly emails. Poor, sad little attention-craver … definitely a screw loose there.

  • Janstince

    Threatening and killing homosexuals and heretics: good.
    Drawing/writing bad things about “prophets” (who may not have ever existed): bad.
    It’s really one step forward, two steps backwards with these ignoramuses. I do wonder, sometimes, about the physical changes that occur in the brain when these loons become die-hard religiots. I wonder if it is an evolutionary trait or a signal to the rest of the species to stay away.

    Listen to this – it is quite unbelievable! Like those lovely people at GodTV, he too is engaged in a “battle”, you won’t be altogether surprised to hear – mainly against sex education in schools, which is leading to the “normalisation of homosexuality” (praise the Lord!), and teaching kids such perversions as “oral and anal sodomy”. (I am NOT making this up!!)

    Christian punk rock?. I bet thats ten times worse than christian metal 😛
    But yeah I really hate these fundamentalist christians who try to pass themselves off as being cool and “down with da kids innit” and christian music just plain sucks keep heavy metal evil \m/
    As for the polish priest, his comments are utterly disgusting and I find it ironic and hypocritical that a catholic priest should be lecturing the rest of us about perverts.

  • barriejohn

    The government is “protecting criminals ” (viz gay people), and guess what? There are judgments coming!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVJZyW31zuk

  • Broadsword

    Not my words but I think relevant in Bradlee Dean’s case:
    It’s people like him that prove conception is possible through anal sex…….

  • barriejohn

    I was trying to edit my previous post, but without success again! This guy is an absolutely hopeless speaker, as he is so hesitant, and wanders away from what he is saying without getting to the point (someone tell him to listen to Just a Minute, please!), so I may not be following him 100%. From what I can make out, according to HIS logic, by outlawing hate crime against gay people, his government is actually “protecting criminals “, ie gays! So, just because his book of fairy stories says that gay is BAD, anyone who beats up or murders a gay person mustn’t be punisheded, as they are doing “the work of the Lord”. Does he believe in lynching suspected murderers without the benefit of a trial as well? If I have misunderstood this message, please put me right. If not, can someone explain to me why someone so seriously disturbed is allowed to present such warped views to young people? This seems to go far beyond telling people that homosexuality is condemned by the Bible, dangerous though that view might be. Now it is God’s will that you go out “gay bashing”, in order to to purify the nation, and stay the judgment of God! This guy has some serious issues here, I’m afraid. Another self-loathing closet-case if ever I saw one!!

  • barriejohn

    Anyone remember this load of bollocks from a few years back? Do they REALLY believe that this sort of trendy nonsense influences any youngsters to “give their life to Jesus”?

    Broadsword,
    That link, magnum gold, is blocked in the US. Can you believe it?
    Anyway, folks, it’s the price you pay. Free speech is a coin with two sides. If we want to reserve the right to publish a drawing of Muhammed butt fucking a goat, then we also get to listen to the fundies spewing their ignorance.
    It is ever so interesting, though, that they say our blatant blaspemy is “hate speech”, but burning people alive is “morality”. I guess you have to possess a pre-supposition that an ancient script is the inspired word of god, in order to get your mind that screwed up.

    Can’t they get it straight that ridiculing irrational and bizarre beliefs does NOT equate (as with their hatred of homosexuals) to “hatred of religious people”?

  • SKZSKZ2

    Dude, you should check out your sources before making claims. The priest to whom you refer is not affiliated with the Catholic Church. He was a member of Pious X, then he quit because they like the Pope too much, and now he’s a member of some even-more right-wing sect.
    He’s also a member of the Narodowe Odrodzenie Polski, who are basically neo-Nazis.
    His name is Rafal Trytek. Try hitting google to check your facts before you post!
    FYI, I’m atheist: I care about this kind of sloppy work because it’s the same tactics which theists indulge in so frequently. Check your facts!

  • Barry Duke

    @ SKZSKZ2: Thanks for pointing that out. I have amended the post accordingly.

  • ChurchiesMakeMeLOL

    I remember when my mother gave me some “xtian metal” CD, it sounded like just a bunch of unintelligible gurgling… I ejected it, threw it out my bedroom window and put Nine Inch Nails back in. Churchies ragging on gays is funny, since Christian Music is in itself, very faggy and lame. I can totally picture these guys and Fred Pheltch’s female singing troupe, The Phaggettes, teaming up for a collaboration album. Maybe they can perform a reworked version of the Sex Pistols “God Save The Queen” except they’ll twist the lyrics so it’s “God Kill The Fags.”
    Fuck religion, fuck it in its crusty dusty wrinkled old ass.
