Fayetteville pastor: The effeminate shall not inherit the earth

This very troubled man says he apologizes for talking about hitting children who display behavior that he deems inappropriate for their gender and that his words were taken out of context.

To which we reply: Watch the whole stomach-turning “sermon” below and see if you agree. The hitting stuff comes rather late — around the 45 to 46 minute mark, but there’s plenty of other truly disturbing (and just plain laugh-out-loud dumb) statements as well.

You can also read a “retraction” and hear an interview that Harris gave to WRAL on the church website.

    My favorite part was where he basically blames gay people for the jobs going overseas. Now that is hilarious. What an idiot. I thought it was also disturbing that I could not tell if it was church or a political rally. So much for separation of church and state.

    There is so much that needs to be said about this rant but it would take volumes.

    I love the gas in Kansas comment.

    Now, let’s not act like this man is an outlier. He is just speaking out loud the ignorance that a large percentage of this state believes.

    Ignorant, hateful sheep.

    Jodie Brunstetter, wife of state senator Peter Brunstetter, stated today that “Amendment 1 was written by my husband because the Caucasian race is diminishing and we need to, uh, reproduce.” Unfreaking believable that words like that come out of people’s mouths in the 21st century. That speaks volumes about the agenda and the basic platform the extreme Right uses as their benchmark.
