North Carolina pastor retracts sermon remarks about punching gay kids
By Stephen Walsh, CNN
(CNN) – A Fayetteville, North Carolina, pastor has retracted controversial language used during a weekend sermon in which he instructed parents to hit children who exhibited behavior associated with homosexuality.
“I apologize to anyone I have unintentionally offended,” Sean Harris, pastor of Berean Baptist Church wrote in a statement on his church’s website. “I did not say anything to intentionally offend anyone in the LGBT community.
“My intent was to communicate the truth of the Word of God concerning marriage,” the statement continued. “My words were not scripted. It is unfortunate I was not more careful and deliberate.”
..."not scripted" means he said exactly what he thinks.
"The second you see your son dropping that limp wrist, you walk over there and crack that wrist," Harris said in the Sunday sermon. "Man up. Give him a good punch."
"You’re not going to act like that," the pastor advised parents to tell their children. "You were made by God to be a male and you are going to be a male.”
...have we finally learned that the people who speak like this are Gay...but terrified of it?
...I wonder....if parents heed his advice and start punching their children...and if the state child welfare agencies or police step in to defend kids and prosecute parents...will the Church cry out that they are being denied religious FREEDOM?
...Imagine if a mullah had said this.
