Ron Baity is the pastor of Berean Baptist Church, an Independent Fundamentalist Baptist church in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Baity started the church in 1980. Baity thinks that the homosexual horde currently invading the United States is a sure sign that we are in the end times. And the gay man says, Pastor Baity, we always known it is the end times.

Here’s a transcript of some of what Baity said in this sermon:

So the book of the Revelation is about End Times events and what happens when this world is destroyed by fire, when the stars and the universe and the sun and the moon, like untimely figs cast from a tree, are just completely done away with and annihilated.”

“Listen, folks, it’s on, You might as well get ready for it. It’s on. It’s just a matter of time when they’re going to say to the churches… It’s just a matter of time before our constitution in our churches will be overturned like our state constitution just been overturned this week. I mean, it’s coming.”

“They were doing something that was not normal, they were doing something that was not natural, and as a result of that, like God judged this world with a flood, he judged Sodom and Gomorrah with fire!” the pastor exclaimed. “The most blasphemous thing I’ve heard in 40 years of ministry, I heard on the news last night, where rogue judges have gone against the will of the ministry and made America a country where there’s totalitarianism, where there are judges who have set themselves up as dictators to overthrow the will of the people! And they placed their sanction upon marriage that is out of the habitation of God’s creation!”

“Now, I want you to understand, there’s something about that that just don’t ring clear. There’s something about that that goes against everything that God has taught us in his word. There’s something about that that merits the judgement of God, according to the book of Jude. There’s something about that that just doesn’t work.”

“If you think for one skinny minute, God is going to stand idly by and allow this to go forward without repercussions, you better back up and rethink this situation,” he warned. “I want you to understand, that is raw, pure blasphemy.”

“I hope this message gets through the Internet. There’s another day that’s going to get called in court, there’s another session of court. And it’s higher than the federal court, and it’s higher than the Supreme Court.”

“There was never a cow going around slobbering on another cow, sending a signal that I’m in love with this cow,” he said. “And when the bull got in the pasture, we didn’t have to give them a course in bullology or cowology. They had an inborn nature, they knew exactly and precisely what they needed to do to make sure that the Baity family had cows 20 years from now.”

“I would hate to think that two skunks in the backyard was smart than a judge that supposed to have studied the laws of the land. Listen, we’re not getting wiser, we’re getting dumber! We’re not getting smarter. My friend, we are meriting, we are bringing the judgement of God on this nation as sure as Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed, don’t be surprised at the plagues. Don’t be surprised at the judgement of God.”

“You think Ebola is bad now, just wait. If it’s not that, it’s going to be something else. My friends, I want you to understand, you can’t thumb your nose at God, and God turn his head away without God getting your attention.”

    This angry man obviously has no idea that there are getting on for nearly 500 species of animal that practise homosexuality.

    I know for a fact that the part about bulls is bull shit because I distinctly remember a section in a livestock textbook that addressed the economic problems for farmers that result from the fact that a certain percentage of bulls are homosexual and have no interest in cows. I believe they called them “bullers”.

    This preacher is also ignorant of history. I mean didn’t the priesthood of the day say the same thing about left handed people?

    Can humanity please move on from focusing on differences to fulfill vague prophesies? I asked nicely.

    These things are always about breeding, breeding, breeding… you’d think people were food animals, the way they carry on! I suppose, in their bubble, lots of little Christians will grow up to be tithing adult Christians, so maybe the analogy is not far off.

    I always wonder if God, the omniscient creator of all life, found homosexuality so repugnant why not take a cue from the electrical engineer and idiot-proof the connections?

    I like at around the 3 minute mark he starts ranting about how we are now changing laws after 150 years, as if we had a vision. No dumbass, it’s called progress.
    I also find it humorous that he says that until god sends a new word he’s gonna stay by what he already said. as if he would believe there’s a new word from god, right? I can’t believe I used to sit in a building and listen to similar drivel.

    Just a wee correction in the title: I think he meant to say ‘back-end times’….. the beginning of back-end times…..;-)

    I hope Ron Baity sees this and some of the other factual science comments about homosexuality among animals other than humans. I have a degree in wildlife biology and had a long career in animal research. As a matter of fact, cows do mount each other, just as many other species do. Female gulls pair off and dolphins have been observed practicing blowhole blow-jobs. And if you really want to make an argument against Baity’s claims, just look at bonobos. They regularly practice homosexual, as well as heterosexual behavior, just for the enjoyment of it. The real significant part is that the bonobo has the most peaceful society of any of the apes, including (and perhaps especially) humans.

    You know, I read the article, and I find humor in it. I’m a Christian who believes that the things in what we falsely call “Old testament” are spiritual prophesies. Sodom and Gomorah has spiritual meaning, as well as carnal prophecy meaning.

    Promised Land? What is it? It’s both a physical (carnal) piece of real estate, as well as a spiritual piece of real estate…the new earth, eternal life, heaven, whatever you wish to call it.

    I like the sarcasms of the blog owner…but I am appalled by the comments from the unbelieving whack jobs mocking Christianity as a whole. Some of these preachers have something legitimate to say that you can’t even fathom, such as there is life after death. But you people seem to come to websites, not to bash the weird preachers, but to bash Christianity as a whole. And I find that disgusting.
