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.
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.
If America won’t enforce the laws, God will raise up a foreign enemy to do just that. The bottom line is this â€¦ 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.”
This should be a grave concern with any candidate that is supporting them.
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 â€˜reparative therapy’ to â€˜fix’ people, and to oppose safe-schools legislation.
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.
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.
