Rick Warren Compares Being Gay to Urges Like 'Punching Someone in the Nose'

Nov 29, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: EDGE

Evangelical minister Rick Warren has been outspoken about gay issues in the past, so it wasn't surprising that it was one of the main topics discussed when he appeared on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" on Tuesday, November 27, 2012.

He's wrong. Sure, it is a self-destructive compulsion, it unfortunately runs through and through homosexuals, not just a moment of loss of control.

I have an urge to punch him in the nose after seeing his picture. It is certainly a large enough target!

It looks as if Ricky boy took a ham to his face, and it is still lodged in his chin and jowls like a hamster.

Why are those right wing religious freaks always so HOG FAT? Gluttony IS one the 7 deadly sins.

And I don't think it is natural to have a chin connected directly to a chest. It is well disguised by the goatee, but to no avail. And yet, I won't tell him that the Bible punishes gluttony in an attempt to get him on a treadmill. Why? Because what he shoves down his throat is none of my damn business.

Feel free to interpret the last statement loosely.

What an odd statement.

How can being attracted only to the same gender be a "self destruction compulsion" when it causes no harm whatsoever?

There is certainly no harm in it, for the gay person, or anyone around them.

The irrational obsession with gay folks that so many bigots share does seem to be self destructive, however. And yet so few seek help.

Why?

Don't you remember, their belief is "do as I say, not do as I do".

Why?
You don't call AIDS harmful? You don't call cruising toilets, bathhouses, parks and gay bars, swallowing the loads of hundreds of gay perverts self-destructive and harmful?

There's only one problem with this theory, its a common practice of older self proclaiming straight married men.

As we have seen SO many times before, the ones who are the most vigilant and vocal are usually the ones with some deep secret. they are denying something in their own head by preaching to others to NOT do whatever it is they are so upset about. HOW many preachers have girl friends on the side? HOW many conservative politicians get busted for sexing up a storm, either opposite or same sex, after shouting like a Baptist preacher for years?
