Kill Gays message from hate-filled Baptist murderers!
Kill gays is something the Bible NEVER tells us to do.
Ignorant Baptist preachers are in the news for advocating killing all gay men and lesbians. Here are three of the dumbest preachers who ever lived in all their hate-filled glory.
Commandant Curtis Knapp New Hope Baptist Church Seneca, Kansas, wants to kill gays.
Commandant Charles L. Worley Providence Road Baptist Church Maiden, NC, wants to kill gays behind electrified wire in concentration camps.
Commandant Steve Anderson Faithful Word Baptist Church Tempe, Arizona, wants to kill gays.
"Let's kill 31 million gays!"
We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. 1 John 3:14, 15, 23 KJV
According to the U.S. Population Clock, there are 313,649,296 Americans as of June 1, 2012. Conservative estimates put the number of gays and lesbians at 5% to 10% which means kooks like Commandants Anderson, Knapp and Worley want to kill 15,682,464 to 31,364,929 of their fellow American citizens. Did you get that? These ignorant Baptist preachers want to kill as many as 31 million American citizens based on their own inability to understand Leviticus 20:13 in context.
Does this vicious hatred from alleged men of God make you sick to your stomach? Even Nazi Germany didn't incarcerate behind electrified fences in concentration camps and kill that many of their fellow citizens. Anderson, Knapp and Worley are worse than Nazis in their blood-lust.
One imagines they also want to kill all transsexuals and bisexuals so their hoped for death toll continues to mount. A professing Christian lady wrote to me recently citing Leviticus 20:13, as if gays should be killed. Her approach is typical of many ignorant Christians. She quoted three Bible verses including one which some Christians believe is about killing gays.
If Christians obeyed 2 Timothy 2:15 and studied their Bible in context, they wouldn't be so misguided on gay issues. A bit of study would reveal that the verses they view as instructions to kill the gays are really talking about God's judgment on shrine prostitutes 3500 years ago when Israel was a theocracy.
Advocating Murder is not free speech.
Here are verses some Christians rip out of context and use as their excuse to advocate killing gays and lesbians.
"If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They will surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them." Leviticus 20:13
"Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of the error which was due." Romans 1:27
"Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals nor sodomites..." 1 Corinthians 6:9
Scripture cannot mean NOW what it did not mean THEN
Far too many Christians these days read the above verses and instantly conclude they are referring to gays and lesbians yet gays and lesbians are not the context of any of the verses quoted above. Those verses are talking about temple prostitutes.
The verses quoted above are in the specific context of shrine prostitutes or cult prostitutes or temple prostitutes. Religious prostitution in worship of the fertility goddess was the cultural, historical and religious reality those verses addressed.
Therefore it makes no sense to insert modern gays and lesbians into ancient texts as if they are the subject of the ancient texts. Those verses do not in any way teach that we should kill gays today
Serious questions for thoughtful Christians
Do you personally believe God advocates that gay people should be killed?
Who should be in charge of killing gay people today?
Some of you may decide not to kill all gays and lesbians.
If you are allowed to disregard the killing part of Leviticus 20:13, why are gays not allowed to disregard the "men with men" part?
Do you also believe all adulterers should be killed? Leviticus 20:10 says to kill adulterers.
Why should we kill all gays and not kill all adulterers (other than the common sense reason that killing all adulterers would empty most churches)?
Who should be in charge of killing adulterers today?
If it's wrong to kill adulterers why is it okay to kill gays?
Is it possible Leviticus 20:13 is not talking about gays at all?
Is it possible your understanding of Leviticus 20:13 is wrong and completely at odds with what God and Moses were saying?
I've often marveled at the thought processes or lack thereof of some Christians. They seem to operate in a make-believe world almost entirely divorced from rational thought. All three of these bone-head pastors advocates killing gays but none of them advocates killing adulterers. Yet Leviticus 20:10 says to kill adulterers. Why are they so hot to trot to kill gays but it never occurs to them to kill adulterers? Could it be they are world class hypocrites?
Here are thoughtful answers to the verses quoted above.
Do you agree that Kill Fags is not a Christian sentiment?
I am convinced that non-gay Christians as a group are often too lazy to study the issue of homosexuality and the Bible. Hook, line and sinker, they've swallowed what they've been told at church without any thoughtful reflection, without any study, without any prayer.
Armed with what they assume are incontrovertible proof texts, they charge into battle, determined to vanquish their homosexual foes and convince government to kill us, if possible. Like Don Quixote, they vainly tilt at imaginary gay windmills.
I once heard an Independent Baptist preacher named Jack Woods (from Houston, Texas) who loved to talk about his "Kill A Queer For Christ Club." What a perverted thing for an alleged man of God to say! I answered the lady who wrote to me but my email bounced back as undeliverable. Here's what I told her.
Gays are killed in Jamaica.
"Dear Rose, Thank you for writing to me. Its always nice to hear from our readers. You asked an important question.
"How can your lifestyle be right in the eyes of the Almighty?"
I've answered your question at great length throughout this website. Click any button on the NavBar and begin reading. Unfortunately your question makes several false assumptions.
You falsely assume that the verses you quoted are talking about committed, faithful, non-cultic same sex partnerships.
You falsely assume that my lifestyle is not right in God's eyes. Since you don't know me, what possible basis in fact could you have to believe my lifestyle is not right in the eyes of God?
One of the verses you quoted, Leviticus 20:13, says the men involved should be put to death. So I have a question for you."
"Do you believe its okay to Kill Gays?"
Some people even sell tee shirts which advocate kill gays. Now that is just plain dumb.
