Maybe its just me..? Public Safety Religion

They Walk among us..

nfrom Chris Murphy 01634 686 515nA church pastor has been savaged after launching a bitter attack on the gay community in Orlando hours after the Pulse club horror.nHe took to his pulpit to spit hate, saying: "Hey, are you sad that 50 paedophiles were killed today? No ... I think that's great. I think that helps society.  I think Orlando, Florida's a little safer tonight."nAs if that wasn't enough, in front of his believers, he later added: "It is unnatural for a man to be attracted to another man.n"The tragedy is that more of them didn't die."nIt happened in Sacramento, California, and it didn't take long for others to launch their own attacks on Pastor Roger Jimenez sermon of spite.nA link on his church's Facebook page, Verity Baptist Church,  directs viewers to the hour long sermon on YouTube.nFor members of Sacramento's LGBTQ community, religious freedom is sacred, but leaders feel a vile line has been crossed.n"We as the gay community support you should be able to worship as you see fit, but it's when you use the pulpit to incite violence or demean or discredit another class of people, just utter disgust," Donald Bentz, executive director of Sacramento's LGBTQ Community Center told local news station FOX40.nJimenez was contacted at his church, on the phone and at his home Monday but has not yet made a comment.nPastor Jimenez used passages in the Bible from Judges 19:22, Genesis 4:1 and Romans 1:27 to back up his points.nBut Mr Bentz countered that saying: "Most of those texts were originally written into Hebrew, translated into Greek, translated into Latin, translated into old English, new English and then back to English and every author that did the translations subjected them to the social mores of their time."nPastor Jimenez called the victims "predators".n"To know that this man's church is within driving distance of my home and where I work and where I'm walking at night, and his congregation members are out on the street, it's very scary," Mr Bentz told Fox40.nEven Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson took to Twitter to express his feelings, saying: "The hateful comments made by a preacher in Sacramento do not reflect Christian values and have no place in our society."nTo see the key points of the sermon go here and watch the Fox40 videonhttp://fox40.com/2016/06/13/sacramento-baptist-pastor-applauds-orlando-shooting/?utm_source=fark&utm_medium=website&utm_content=linknendsnn

I am starting this entry on Tuesday the 14th of June.

As you will know by now, over 50 people where killed Sunday morning at the Pulse night club in Orlando Fla.  The nightclub in question is a hangout for the LGBT set.

I am not going into the legitimacy of the gay community, I don’t think they are normal, or bad, they just are.

Here is an interesting Link to an L.A.Times article

We know about the idea of Radical Islam, though President Obama seems to have a hard time with the concept.. but, so we ever consider the other side of that coin?  Radical Christians?  Not really..

According to the  Washington Post: Pastor Roger Jimenez from Verity Baptist Church in Sacramento told his congregation that Christians “shouldn’t be mourning the death of 50 sodomites.”

Add to that the Westberro Baptist Church saying, after the Boston Marathon bombing, “Thank God for Bombers”, and you might wonder if the description “radical Baptist” might be in order..

I want to say again, I do not think homosexuality is normal, or any combination of it, but that, is my personal opinion and I would not inflict it on anyone..

Hate speech is just that “Hate Speech” and just because they have to title Iman or Reverend on their name does not make it any less so..

That is one thing that President Obama should be able to understand after having listened to the Reverend Wright for 20 years..

For centuries society had defined marriage as between a man and woman, then the MIBs, Men in Bathrobes, decided that a marriage ban violated their rights to something, and declared marriage open to all.

I might not agree with homosexuality but that is their bussiness, not mine, and to say “kill the sodomites” is hate speech of the type that should be condemmed as we comdem those who say “kill the infidels”.

Thanks,
