Pastor Sean Harris Says He Was Only Joking About Beating The Gay Out Of Children [View all]

Source: On Top

Pastor Sean Harris has given a halfhearted apology for calling on parents to discipline their children to conform to gender stereotypes during a sermon in support of Amendment One on Sunday.

“If I had to say it again, I would say it differently, no doubt,” Harris told The Fayetteville Observer. “Those weren't planned words, but what I do stand by is that the word of God makes it clear that effeminate behavior is ungodly. I'm not going to compromise on that.”

Harris' sermon on Amendment One was part of a campaign encouraging religious leaders to reach out to congregants in support of the amendment, which would ban marriage, civil unions and possibly domestic partnerships for gay and lesbian couples in North Carolina.

After insisting that marriage equality is not a civil rights issue – no one was born gay, he said – Harris called on parents to quash non-confirming behaviors out of their children.
