Megachurch Pastor says ‘gays must be put to death’

Claiming that being gay is a choice like drug abuse, the senior pastor for a megachurch in Tennessee says that “gays must be put to death” because God commands it.

Last Sunday, Brainerd Baptist Church Senior Pastor Robby Gallaty told his large congregation that Christians should never stop discriminating against homosexuals, claiming that gays could choose to be straight if they only accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

Gallaty explained why gays should be put to death:

God said that the sins of the people had infected the very land in which they live. So what happens to people who engage in this activity, this sexual immoral activity? Go to Leviticus 20, God gives us the punishment for engaging in these sins… ‘If a man sleeps with a man as with a woman, they have both committed a detestable thing. They must be put to death. And their blood is on their own hands.’

Pastor Gallaty tried to justify his Biblically inspired hatred for gays and lesbians by repeatedly trying to argue that being gay is a choice, and some sort of rebellion against his imaginary God’s divine plan.

  1. Surely anyone who has read Leviticus must notice that it’s just a ridiculous list of prohibitions, perhaps it had utility back then as social control, but none of it is relevant now. If anyone wants an idea about what a mindless vengeful savage the old testament god is they should regard the story of Job. God does not come out well in this particular fantasy.

    What modern traveller would use such an absurd, archaic document as a guide book.

  2. http://biblehub.com/john/8-7.htm

    The Gospel of John (see above) says:

    When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”

    Since Christians are supposed to be followers of Christ Jesus, I would think they should place more weight on the Gospel than on the Torah. People like this pastor and those of his church who approve of his message are the real American Taliban– hate filled purveyors of ignorance.

  3. “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”

    Good advice and directly contradicts a lot in Leviticus. Which makes me wonder. If that wasn’t such a good law why did God make it? Has he since changed his mind? Shouldn’t it then be removed from the Bible, along with most of the rest of the OT?

  4. I see little different between this pastor and the ISIL/IS/ISIS thugs that are beheading people in the name of their beliefs. They are cut from the same cloth.

  5. Perhaps he is a bit cross having found out how few actual straights (in his terms) still exist. The rest of us are all out trying to be nice, doing good work and having a good time.

Army can’t track spending on $4.3b system to track spending, IG finds

The Global Combat Support System-Army, a logistical support system meant to track supplies, spare parts and other equipment, was launched in 1997. In 2003, the program switched from custom software to a web-based commercial software system.

About $95 million was spent before the switch was made, according to the report from the Department of Defense IG.

As of this February, the Army had spent $725.7 million on the system, which is ultimately expected to cost about $4.3 billion.

The problem, according to the IG, is that the Army has failed to comply with a variety of federal laws that require agencies to standardize reporting and prepare auditable financial statements.

“This occurred because DOD and Army management did not have adequate controls, including procedures and annual reviews, in place to ensure GCSS-Army compliance with Treasury and DOD guidance,” the IG report concludes.

No problem… just spend another $4.3b on a system to track the spending on the system to track the spending

  1. Yes, but in a real democracy you can kick the bums out. (And get another fresher set.)

  2. Politicians are like diapers. They need to be changed regularly, and for the same reason.

  3. Ha! I wish I’d said that!
