Maryland Pastor Calls For Gays, Supporters To Be Put To Death

Oct 25, 2012 Full story: lezgetreal.com 46
Maryland Reverend Robert Anderson of Colonial Baptist Church in Randallstown has caused quite a stir by saying that supporters of same-sex marriage should be put to death. He said “Those who practice such things are worthy of death. If we don’t vote against it, then we are approving these things that are worthy of death.” Anderson defended his words by saying “That’s not my words. That’s from Romans Chapter 1 written by the Apostle Paul himself.” Full Story

"Maryland Marriage Alliance’s Derek McCoy tried to deflect criticism about the statements by saying that they were not a call for violence. He stated “Any attempt to imply that Dr. Anderson’s reading of scripture was a call to harm gays and lesbians is false and serves as a distraction from the real issues of the campaign.”

Put to death isn't harm? These people are NUTS!!!!!

I found this interesting, from the article:

He stated “Any attempt to imply that Dr. Anderson’s reading of scripture was a call to harm gays and lesbians is false and serves as a distraction from the real issues of the campaign.”

Anderson said “Those who practice such things are worthy of death." and this, Anderson went on to explain that everyone who supports same-sex marriage deserves death because “they are promoting the lifestyle and they are promoting what same-sex marriage is all about, and that is what we are standing against.”

But we are to understand that this Pastor, this Christian is not truly advocating ANY VIOLENCE........right......NOT BUYING IT!!!

And then these folks would why folks are leaving the Church!!!

Their own words condemn them. They are apparently victims of Romnesia. They say the words, then try to backtrack and make them palatable to normal people. They are disgusting slime.

I suggest the good pastor put himself in a time machine and transport himself back to the 1st century in the Middle East. We don't need a Christian Taliban here.

And indeed, it is. But these misguided, judgmental zealots aren't practicing anything even vaguely related to Christianity and they certainly aren't following the teachings of Christ.

And therein lies the problem.

They SAY they are. THEY would say that they can't love or forgive that which God condemns. They would say that homosexuality is a "crime" which must be repented.

Maybe the problem is that anyone can practice in whatever way they want, and freely call it "Christianity". Conflict is going to arise if a religion can be practiced in two polarly-opposed ways, and still retain the same title either way.

That's not the basis for, nor central tenet of, Christiantity. The central tenet of Christianity is that ONLY belief that Jesus Of Nazareth is the Saviour can save you from your sins. All other beliefs and things are secondary to that.

Actually, it doesn't "allow" slavery, but rather COMMANDS slaves to obey their masters.

The Bibls is one of the chief arguments used by members of the Confederate States Of America to justify the morality of slavery.

I believe, and always have, that slavery is one of the WORST crimes a person can commit, just half a notch above rape or murder. Sadly, slavery still exists in the world, even in the U.S.

The Thirteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution expressly prohibits slavery in the U.S., yet within just the past few years, it took a FEDERAL JUDGE'S COURT ORDER to have a couple of counties in the South STOP the practice of using slaves, in violation of the Thirteenth Amendment. And this is just in the past couple of years.

I don't doubt that some self proclaimed Christians teach that. However I also don't believe that is true of all Christians.

Some would say that Jesus was pretty clear what the core teaching was in his statement in Matthew 22:36. To paraphrase, love God and love your neighbor as yourself.

There is also a federal lawsuit ongoing in Vermont, where a man held in jail was forced to work for 25 cents an hor, even though he had not only NOT yet been convicted of a crime, but the charges against the man, Finbar McGarry, were later dismissed and he was released from jail.

The 13th Amendment EXPRESSLY PROHIBITS ANY FORCED LABOR BY ANYONE, AT ANY TIME, FOR ANY REASON, UNLESS THAT PERSON HAS BEEN CONVICTED OF A CRIME.

It's A SERIOUS CRIMINAL OFFENSE, AND MORALLY REPUGNANT when a private person engages in the heinous crime of slavery, but when it is local governments IN THE UNITED STATES doing it, it is UNCONSCIENABLE !

In our history, more than half a million Americans have given their lives to STOP SLAVERY. And it's STILL NOT eradicated here ?!

Wealthy Long Island Gold Coast couple convicted of using slaves:

I think anyone who engages in slavery should be eitehr sentenced to death, or life in prison with no chance of parole.

Slavery is THAT HEINOUS A CRIME. Akin to rape or murder.

The woman recived a sentence of 11 years in prison, far too short I believe.
