It's Been Tried Already. Just Sayin.'

There's been a lot of crazy stuff said about gay people lately. Preachers advocating violence against suspected gay children, obsessing about gay sex in words too disgusting to post here, and this guy, who has the solution to the country's "gay problem." It's humane, because he wouldn't starve them, right?

Two words: Nazi Germany. Seriously.

Think this is a one-time incident? This guy's been preaching stuff like this for forty years. And from the reference, lgbt's aren't the only group he thought should be killed.

I put all that hateful crap up, because I want to let anyone who will be in the area that there will be a peaceful protest of this church on Sunday. If you're not on Facebook, you can get more info at catawbavalleyagainsthate@gmail.com

Normally I just make it a hard rule to never bring Hitler, or the Holocaust, or Nazi Germany into any debate but honestly, after listening to this my first thought was "Will he make them wear those uber-cute pink triangles too?". My second was that "Amen" isn't an appropriate response to this. A true believer in this solution should be yelling "Seig Heil!"

I watched an interview on CNN with a different evangelical leader and he couldn't distance himself from this fast enough. I personally think his distancing was heartfelt (because anyone with a brain doesn't invoke anything from Hitler) but I also found myself wondering, just a teenie little bit, if it was also because supporting a concentration camp while proclaiming opposition to abortion because you are "pro-life" might have been problematic. It's a sad state of affairs when my mind even needs to go there.

So with these dark ideas in mind here's a little bit of musical merriment. It's NSFW due to language, but I think you might kick out of it:

Yeah, I don't normally invoke Hitler, either, but like you, it's so similar, it's the first thing I thought of. The second was the Japanese internment camps we had here after WWII.

I'm curious if the evangelical leader you saw was Pastor Wooden. I heard he was interviewed about this. FYI, he's the one I was refering to who was obsessed with gay sex. He's disgusting. These guys turn themselves inside out with their twisted logic.

The fact that the news organizations are talking to crazy pastors about other crazy pastors is more than a little disturbing.
