Before and during World War II, the Nazis rounded up the gays along with the Jews and the gypsies. We know what happened to them. Is Morley proposing that America in 2012 do the same thing? Do they not teach history in seminary? Do they only teach Bible thumping and hatred? Where is the Christianity in this?

And people wonder why I have abandoned Christian religions...too much politics, bigotry, and hatred for my beliefs. And that was the congregation.

I am sure that preacher did not go to seminary. He can't say against but says agin. Also, last time I checked two gay men couldn't reproduce any better than two gay women. I think someone should find the old f**ker and beat the hell out of him.. Or maybe a good old fashioned stoning like in the Bible.. or perhaps teach him how to read and speak.. Amen!!

I think those people should find another church or another pastor. This one is NOT a man of God.

Oh the queers begging for acceptance!!!! Read your Bible no where is it accepted.
Where in the CHRISTIAN Bible is it acceptable to hate a fellow human being? Where in the CHRISTIAN Bible is is acceptable to discriminate against another person. Where in the CHRISTIAN Bible does it recommend that a group of people be separated, branded, and ostracized?

I have read the Bible. The specific passages that everyone refers to were the rules of conduct for a desert tribe that needed to increase its numbers in order to further its conquests. The old Yehudis made it a commandment from God in order to make it enforcible. I seriously doubt that God spoke to one of them and gave them the specific commandment.

My Bible talks about the two greatest commandments which are to Love God and love your neighbor. It also says all the law of the Prophets comes directly from these two commandments. I don't see how posting hateful crap has anything to do with these commandments.

I understand being angry, but I say let he go ahead and spew forth his vomit. That way people will see him for the hypocrite he really is.

I understand the anti-gay argument. However, why is it that the very same vigor is not put into other issues plaging our society? Divorce, teen pregnancy, single-parent households. Men who live off of women! These are much bigger issues in our communities than attacking gays.

Because (1) gays are easy targets, and (2) there are a few words found in an ancient book of mostly myths and legends that prohibit it.

Why are some people inspired by the rants of goofy people like this preacher?
