God wants you to kill teh gay

We all know Republican Jesus and his father, the Master of the Universe, created teh gay so the pious would have someone to stone on those otherwise dull weekends in Babylon. But a Kansas preacher wants to bring it back, because nothing says limited government to a conservative nutcase like being dragged out of your house by the State and tortured to death for public amusement:

(Raw Story) — “They should be put to death,” Knapp declared. “‘Oh, so you’re saying we should go out and start killing them, no?’ — I’m saying the government should. They won’t, but they should.”

“You say, ‘Oh, I can’t believe you, you’re horrible. You’re a backwards neanderthal of a person.’ Is that what you’re calling scripture? Is God a neanderthal, backwards in his morality? Is it His word or not? If it’s His word, he commanded it. It’s His idea, not mine. And I’m not ashamed of it.”

“He said put them to death,” he continued. “Shall the church drag them in? No, I’m not say that. The church has not been given the power of the sort; the government has. But the government ought to [kill them]. You got a better idea? A better idea than God?”

Correct, I say you, Mr. Knapp, are a backwards neandertal of a person, with apologies to archaic hsaps throughout prehistory, and if that’s your idea of God I do indeed have a much, much better idea. In fact, I’m pretty sure any developmentally challenged neandertal over age three would have a much better idea. But Knapp gets his day in the sun and maybe a few shekels will drop his way.

As long as we’re on the subject of profiting from noxious hatred and violence, how long before Mitt Romney hits Pastor Knapp up for a lucrative fundraiser?

    Is God a neanderthal, backwards in his morality?

    No. If he existed, he’d be demonstrably worse than the neanderthal.

    So now we got three (Worley from NC, Gipson or something from Miss., and this guy)! It’s a movement!

    Of course, there’s always ironic revenge

    As Uncle Glenny points out, this is three now…and just in the last week or two. How many other priests are out there preaching the hate?

    Becoming less and less convinced that these are the extremists…

    You got a better idea? A better idea than God?

    Yup. I have lots of better ideas than god. Because I actually exist.

    What is the fuck wrong with these people? Should they be allowed out without a leash?

    “Oh, so you’re saying we should go out and start killing them, no?’ — I’m saying the government should. They won’t, but they should.”

    Hey, tenderfoot. Them is us.

    Read your founding documents that you pretend to fawn all over.

    If you hate long enough you can make some of the government that governs us all as hateful as you are.
    Some of us will be really pissed about that. You are noticing that recently?

    That tirade should be reposted and broadcast far and wide as exhibit one for reason why no person who is gay, might be gay, has gay family or friends should ever, ever vote or send money to anyone who is, or pals around with, fundamentalists, dominionists or anyone else advocating any religious influence over government. These people are evil and all they need is a little power and money to go from evil words to evil deeds.

    So concentration camps and Zyklon B are all right, as long as they are used as prescribed by this Kansas pastor?

    Lorn: “These people are evil and all they need is a little power and money to go from evil words to evil deeds”
    As long as they can ge someone else to do the dirty work.

    “The government should [do the work]”. I suppose this would require a special corps of professionals, with special uniforms.

    Knapp should get a life sentence or the death penalty if any religious extremists “do god’s will” and kill gay people. He’s inciting violence, despite what he says otherwise.

    I’m saying the government should. They won’t, but they should.

    Gah, stupid miss-clicks. Let me try again.
    With the escalation of violent speech that has been happening by people in a “leadership position”, it will not be long until the violent actions start to escalate. This is the same crap that happened when Gabby Giffords got shot. Violent rhetoric was spewed every chance that was available by prominent figures in an already heated population. Someone stepped up and did what was being said and all the cowards backed away claiming no fault.

    This is going to get ugly, they are trying to drive us underground again…
