Tomczak’s Inane Claims About Gender Roles

Pastor Larry Tomczak has a very high opinion of himself. In a column in Charisma magazine he shares a video that “every person in every church needs to watch.” It’s an incredibly important video and he assures his readers that nothing less than the world is at stake to convince them to watch it:

Last week a video was released entitled, Is Gay Okay? 10 Things Everyone Needs to Know. I submit to you that this is a video every person in every church needs to view. Everyone needs to know the most important issue Christians face today and the answers to the questions surrounding it.

This is not a promo. It’s a plea.

This is not a product. It’s a prophetic resource.

This is not hype. It’s a humble appeal at America’s tipping point.

No one’s making any money.

No one’s putting anyone on a mailing list or signing anyone up for anything.

What’s at stake is the future of the family and our religious freedom.

Wow, that sounds important! What is it? It’s a video of Larry Tomczak giving a speech, during which he claims that gay men become effeminate and gay women become masculine because God is punishing them.

    What about “effeminate” straight men and “masculine” straight women? Are they being punished as well? If so, for what “crime?”

  2. busterggi says

    Okay, so is he admitting that being gay isn’t a choice or a lifestyle and that its god’s will that gays exist?

    Will he continue to hate them for doing his god’s work?

    And what are they being punished for, being born?

    Believers claim religion has answers but I disagree.

  3. eric says

    How does it impact his religious freedom of some other person acts more/less effeminantly? If I put on a pink tie Monday morning, Tomczak suddenly can’t worship Jesus?

    Seriously? With all the stuff going on in the world, The Gay is “the most important issue Christians face today?”

    Nice of him to tacitly admit that most of the time, the point of these things is to make money off the rubes and get their names onto mailing lists.

    Oh really?

    This is the central purpose of xianity? This is why jesus died on the cross? So xians can…hate gays?

    Silly me, I thought it had to do with rescuing humans from hell and getting them to heaven for eternity, despite their Original Sin. That Salvation thing. Not to mention eliminating poverty, feeding the poor, healing the sick, world peace, and comforting the afflicted and bereaved.

    Oh well, jesus never fed the poor or healed the sick. He just wandered around Israel hating gay people. It was his central message.

    1. This xian gay hate preoccupation is getting boring. If you look at xian sources, they act like it’s the central message of their religion.

    2. In reality it is a recent invention as xianity evolves in new and weird directions, a decade old at best. They just have to hate somebody to keep their religion going and money coming into the conpeople that run their churches.

    If it wasn’t gays, it would be someone else to hate.

    Well, that part’s true. We are at a tipping point. He just thinks it’s tipping down, while sane and rational people understand that it’s tipping up.

  8. matty1 says

    If America is tipping up does that mean it’s contents will spill out all over the floor?

    No, it means that everything that isn’t tied down will slide into California.

    What else is there to keep the troops stirred up, writing checks, and marching in lockstep?

  11. zero6ix says

    “Folks, I am not, in any way, being insensitive here”

    Except, yeah, I totally am. Fucking bull dykes and glitter twinks, all filth. And its their own fault too! You want to be in a same sex relationship? Fine. My god will use his magic powers to swap your genders! Win freakin win baby.

  12. bushrat says

    …he claims that gay men become effeminate and gay women become masculine because God is punishing them.

    Then by that logic stupid people become Evangelicals because God is punishing them…or is he punishing us?

  13. suttkus says

    Okay, so gay men who become effeminate are being punished by god. What about masculine gay men? Are they not being punished by god for some reason? And, also, the lesbians who remain effeminate are also approved of by god? This is getting complicated. So, like cholesterol, there’s good and bad gay, but we can only tell by which ones god punishes after the fact. Or something.

  14. Nemo says

    So if God’s punishing them already, that means you don’t need to be piling on, right?

  15. thalwen says

    It’s fascinating – with everything going on in the world that the biggest problem is teh ghey and people not fitting gender roles. And with everything in the Bible, the central message is – we don’t like gays and women.

    “No, it means that everything that isn’t tied down will slide into California.”

    Hey, if that’s the case, can someone leave a 1980 Fiat X1-9 unanchored? That would be really awesome.

    (You think it’s a strange choice? Then you’ve never driven one.)
