Homophobic Baptist Pastor Tells Gay Man To Commit Suicide
The fight for gay rights is still ongoing and it is inevitable to witness a word war, debate and even physical fights between two opposing beliefs. One example for this case would be the topic of today's article.
A gay man named Jim Marjoram who has promoted his new book that tackles gay-friendly religion entitled "It's Life Jim" through e-mail received an unexpected response from a church pastor. The gay man was told by the church pastor to kill himself.
Jim emailed 400 Auckland churches about his book, which tells a story about his struggle living in as a gay Christian that he have endured in many decades. Jim was shocked to get a response from a church pastor who told him:
“We are not interested in your filthy lifestyle or book, Romans 1 clearly says God has rejected homos and they are worthy of death. You cannot be saved. I pray that you will commit suicide, you filthy child molesting fag.” - Pastor Logan Robertson
Jim and other people who have known about the e-mail response from pastor Robertson felt that he may have went too far with his opinion about gays. To make it more worse, Robertson expounded his views about gays by saying he thinks that the Government should punish gay people to death.
“And if we had a righteous government, that’s what we’d be doing. Instead of letting them go out and pretend to get married when they’re not. The Bible doesn’t even say anything about these fags getting married. They should just be stoned to death instead. That’s what the Bible says. And I hope they all die.” - Pastor Logan Robertson
We are all entitled to our own opinions and to freedom of speech but we should always keep in mind that we should always be responsible on what we say and do. Most especially, if you are a public figure that everyone looks up to.
