We worry about attacks from foreign terrorists when we should be keeping a watch on some of our homegrown religious fanatics. One bright spot is they haven’t taken to beheadings yet.
Pastor Steven Anderson, of Faithful Word Baptist Church, called for stoning to death ministers who performed same-sex marriage ceremonies and repeated his call for the execution of all LGBT people.“I hate them with a perfect hatred,” Anderson shouted. “I count them mine enemies.”Anderson said the Bible consistently called Christians to “have the guts to stand up to our culture that is now accepts homos.”
“Where’s the call to repentance?” Anderson said. “Where’s the hope, where’s the love and the grace? It isn’t there.”This guy might want to merge with the Westboro contingent, since he’s echoing their message loud and clear. But no one should imagine that this is what Christians stand for. They don’t. Anderson represents a small sliver of haters who are furious they cannot control the entire United States population with outsize fury
Anyone transmitting “sodomistic propaganda” to a minor would be fined $1 million per offense, and/or imprisoned up to 10 years, and/or expelled from California for up to life. It would ban lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, or those who espouse sodomistic propaganda, or who belong to any group that does, from serving in public office, holding government jobs and obtaining public benefits.
“This law is effective immediately and shall not be rendered ineffective nor invalidated by any court, state or federal, until heard by a quorum of the Supreme Court of California consisting only of judges who are neither sodomites nor subject to disqualification hereunder,” it states.
The proposal states that: “The abominable crime against nature known as buggery, called also sodomy, is a monstrous evil that Almighty God, giver of freedom and liberty, commands us to suppress on pain of our utter destruction even as he overthrew Sodom and Gomorrha
“Seeing that it is better that offenders should die rather than that all of us should be killed by God’s wrath against us for the folly of tolerating wickedness, the people of California wisely command, in the fear of God, that any person who willingly touches another person of the same gender for the purposes of sexual gratification to put to death by bullets or by any other convenient method.”
