This is the forty-first installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section. Let’s have some fun!
Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a clip from a sermon preached by Curtis Knapp, pastor of New Hope Baptist Church, Seneca, Kansas — a Reformed Baptist congregation.
Auditing this smug little shithead makes me sick to my stomach. Listen to his smarmy reassurance to gay people about how the government won’t be executing them anytime soon! But his ugly hatred and earnest wish for their harm and his excuse that the Bible demands it shouts so much louder than any reassurance. Isn’t Christianity a wonderful gift!
You gotta love it, the same damn stupid, disingenuous shit it always is, “Hey
is god a neanderthal backward in his morality (yes, clearly)? Is this his word or not? That ‘one’ of him ever divinely existed and said anything even remotely profound would be the real miracle here. And we don’t know who-all really ‘wrote’ the bible, so that point has been moot for, well . . . since ‘they’ wrote’ the ‘bible.’
Sooo – ‘it’s HIS idea not mine and I’m not ashamed of it!’ Since you’re not actually being persecuted and no one has done anything to you to cause you to feel shame, Curtis, then I suspect you’d fold like a cheap tent if confronted with real hate and oppression.
If you’re not ashamed of it, why distance yourself with the vocabulary you use? Maybe it is ‘his’ idea,’ but you’re ridiculous in your attempt to distance yourself as far as possible from the filthy horror that tome contains. So sad when a True Christian(TM) finds himself loving the ‘the world’ more than racking up Jesus points, and thinking he can have it both ways.
