Another pastor calls for the extermination of LGBT people

Pastor Curtis Knapp (New Hope Baptist Church in Seneca, Kansas)
Rev. Curtis Knapp

Yet another Hater for Jesus drops any pretense when it comes to his desire to see LGBT people exterminated:

[Seneca, Kansas’s New Hope Baptist Church pastor Curtis] Knapp went on to read from Leviticus 20: “If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death.”

“They should be put to death,” Knapp declared. “‘Oh, so you’re saying we should go out and start killing them, no?’ — I’m saying the government should. They won’t, but they should.”

“You say, ‘Oh, I can’t believe you, you’re horrible. You’re a backwards neanderthal of a person.’ Is that what you’re calling scripture? Is God a neanderthal, backwards in his morality? Is it His word or not? If it’s His word, he commanded it. It’s His idea, not mine. And I’m not ashamed of it.”

“He said put them to death,” he continued. “Shall the church drag them in? No, I’m not say that. The church has not been given the power of the sort; the government has. But the government ought to [kill them]. You got a better idea? A better idea than God?”

Once again, it’s so nice (only, not so much) when leaders of Yahweh’s flock don’t shy away from revealing their true colors to the world. But yes, I certainly do have a better idea than that horrible little sky-tyrant; it’s called secular humanism … or at the very least, not revealing yourself as a brazen bigot whose Bible-fueled hatred is exactly the sort of thing that’s driving the rapidly growing exodus from the church.

Oh, wait – that’s a good thing.
