Christian Right leader, Rick Scarborough, longs for the days gays were sent to prison

Vision America's Rick Scarborough delivered a guest sermon at the Fairton Christian Center in New Jersey earlier this month where he declared that gays coming out of the closet was a sign that a nation has forgotten God.

But Scarborough quickly corrected himself and apologized for using the word "gay" when he really meant "sodomites" because using the word "gay" is "an abuse of the language." Scarborough went on the predict that, very soon, pedophiles will be referred to as "happy people" and they will have parades and be defended by legislators ... and those who don't think this can happen just need to remember that "twenty years ago, who called a sodomite 'gay'? We had laws in Texas 'til 2002 that we sent them to prison! That was based on the Bible, by the way"

1. Get a load of their trending topics

ANTI-GAY
ANTI-MUSLIM
ELECTION 2012
END TIMES
MARRIAGE EQUALITY
REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH

Happy days are here again.

And wouldn't a straight man who gives his wife anal sex be a sodomite? Me being a lesbian, I don't do that, so I guess I'm good.

2. he sounds neurotically threatened by something that poses no threat.

that is the very definition of someone inflicted by phobia. Most try to do something about their phobias to live a better life for themselves and others... that's called taking responsibility. But this person embraces the phobia and wants to force a change which is not realistic, irresponsible and bad for others.

3. Santorum might want to read that Bible again

Because it says nothing about jail, the punishment is a more then that!

"If a man also lies with a man, as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."

6. Using religion to justify bigotry, how nice.

Until our species stops being afraid of the dark and still relies on con-men to assuage their fears, we'll have to put up with the religiously insane.
