Christian Cruelty Destroys Another Life

In a tearful videotaped message Sunday to his congregation, the senior pastor of a thriving evangelical megachurch in south metro Denver confessed to sexual relations with other men and announced he had voluntarily resigned his pulpit.

"I have struggled with homosexuality since I was a 5-year-old boy," Barnes said in the 32- minute video, which church leaders permitted The Denver Post to view. "... I can't tell you the number of nights I have cried myself to sleep, begging God to take this away."

In their only talk about sex, Barnes said his father took him on a drive and talked about what he would do if a "fag" approached him.

Barnes thought, "'Is that how you'd feel about me?' It was like a knife in my heart, and it made me feel even more closed."


In what is becoming a catch phrase around here, this article also begs the question: WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?

Let me guess, since your old book doesn't talk about genetics, you can came to the conclusion that nobody is born gay. People make conscience decisions about who they are or are not attracted to. Including, but not limited to, a 5-year-old boy who would cry himself to sleep begging for god to take away his homosexuality.

Why? Because of hatred and cruelty Christians practice. Don't think any other religion is off the hook here either. Islam fairs no better when it comes to its treatment of people who are gay. In a previous article a Jewish group was threatening to chuck razor blade barbed apples at gay rights marchers.

That's not to say every religion practices this horrifically immoral cruelty against its fellow people -- but the major three certainly do.
