Christian Values?



Listen, if you can stomach it, to the words of a preacher behind Amendment 1 in North Carolina, as he receives amens and laughter from his flock. Your kid's gay? Beat it out of him. Yes, lord. Hallelujah. Literally, the ignorance and inhumanity make me sick to my stomach. Who threatens our society more, do you suppose? People like these, or gays? Is it even close?

(This man of god has since claimed, after his words were heard outside his sanctuary, that he was just kidding. Does it sound like that to you?)

(How much nicer a world if the Christians we heard from in the political arena were more like these folks. Why are they so rarely heard from? And according to the latest polls, it looks like this shameful initiative will pass. What damaged creatures are we purportedly divinely designed human beings. If we were cars, we'd be recalled. Or crushed and sold for scrap.)

It is so, so sad to me that people actually believe that homosexuality is so wrong that it would be acceptable to beat their children because of it. I can't even begin to comprehend how anyone can believe that this is acceptable.
