The Bible speaks of plagues wreaking havoc in the land, but I never thought I would see one composed of preachers who call themselves Christians preaching hate and advocating violence from the pulpit. This is the inverse of Christianity, no love, no tolerance, zero inclusion. Simply, this group of New Independent Fundamentalist Baptist ministers want to obliterate the gay community and they’re not mincing words about it. They are converging on Orlando, Florida this weekend, during Pride Month and on the third anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub Massacre.
The roster of speakers reads more like the directory of a terrorist organization rather than a convocation of Christian ministers. As Jesus said, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” [Proverbs 23:7] There is no question but that these guys’ hearts are black and clogged with the soot of hate. Friendly Atheist:
There’s Steven Anderson, who celebrated the massacre as soon as it happened because there were “50 less pedophiles in this world.” He added that he’s “not gonna sit here and cry about it and say it’s a tragedy, because it’s not.” He’s also said if he could push a button and kill every homosexual, he would “push it until it breaks.”
McMurtry also told his congregation that he hoped people would protest the MASA conference because it might get violent, and that could be a pretense for attendees to hurt or murder gay people.
… Pray that if they do any protests, that it gets violent. They have “Stand Your Ground” in Florida. So we’re allowed to fight back. So… I say “bring it!”
This is nothing more than a hate rally masquerading as a Christian conference. This is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of speakers and churches involved.
Anderson himself has been banned from several European countries [30, to be precise] because of his bigotry — and most of the speakers are just imitating him. I’m surprised a lynching isn’t already on the schedule.
When Donald Trump was elected a rock moved from the front of a cave in Hell and all manner of Evil was released into the world — not that these forces weren’t present before, they just weren’t empowered to come out into the light and put their ugliness on full display. These are not men of God, by any definition or wild stretch of the imagination. The labels Talibangelical and Evilgelical fit these people like custom-made shoes.
Revelation 3:9 is appropriate: “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are
Jews Christians and are not, but do lie…” This group of ministers is following some Master and it ain’t Christ.
