What I find most disturbing about this sign is that the preacher seemed to have no idea that people would find it offensive. He was totally unprepared for the backlash he received for this sign.


"He thought the message on the church sign would be a loving way to remind teenagers that the Bible denounces homosexuality."

If that's really the case, then total psychology fail.

Those who already believe it don't need reminding, and those who don't believe it (and likely also the rare few who don't really think about it one way or the other, which is probably his intended audience) will be annoyed at best. And people who have no idea where this line came from (probably a lot of today's teenagers) will either be confused or think it refers to *straight* kissing and consider it to be retarded.

Oh, did you happen to see the response?

Vandalism. Nice.

An appropriate response, if you don't like what someone says, you vandalize their property.

Typical. "ACT OUT"? Needs to be turned over someone's knees and made to behave.

Sorry that you went to hell, Pastor David. Next time, try kissing guys.

(Yes, I've heard the over-played song by Katy Perry. I'm being intentionally dense.)

Hee. Apparently I type too slow -- you beat me to it!
Jan. 8th, 2010 02:28 am (UTC)
Perhaps Pastor Dave should try kissing a boy next time?

The subtext I get is you may as well go the whole hog into hawt lezzonian sexing 'cause Zombie Jebus will toast your soul for just a kiss...

At first I read the second line on the sign as "fondling and feeling his sheep"!

What I find even funnier is that apparently a lot of people didn't get the reference to the song, and contacted the church in angry confusion.

He's going to hell for those awful letters. The E in WENT is upside down, and those Ks are just ugly.

Well, it sounds like all the "sexually dysfunctional" people agree with themselves.

Isn't it nice that you all have your own little community, that you can congratulate yourselves on your perversions?

Well, I'm here to kick over your anthill...a pastor is morally responsible for upholding the bible, you should EXPECT him to put something like this on his billboard.

And if you don't like that the religious community rejects what you do, too damn bad...the religious community has as much right (if not more) than you to their opinions.

You think that your bullying and slapping is going to cure this? The only cure for it is to STOP spreading perversion. Berating or censoring people who object to immorality isn't going to help one bit.

Tacit posted without comment...well, you all more than made up for it. This is the second time I've tried to post opposing viewpoint on his blog...let's see if the man who once told me "If you have to censor, you've lost..." decides to delete my post.

Bullying? Slapping? Aren't most people here just ... laughing?

I mean, sure, if you want to have serious discussion about this, then okay.

I believe that for a multicultural society to prosper, acceptance (or at the very least, tolerance) of people who are not like you is absolutely necessary. We need to be able to stop fighting long enough to build something. Continued demonizing of gay and lesbian members of society will never accomplish anything good, even were such demonizing religiously required, which it's not.

What I mean to say is that this demonizing isn't going to eliminate homosexuality, either among society or among the congregants, since homosexuality is, as near as we're able to determine, biologically determined. Since it won't be able to accomplish that goal, all it will do is sow discord in society and force an already-oppressed group to feel a little worse about themselves and their neighbors. Furthermore, as I said, such attacks certainly aren't religiously required ... after all, Jesus spoke quite a bit more about the moral bankruptcy of the wealthy, and I doubt that the church would put up a sign reading "I got a raise and a new car ... and then I went to hell."

It's clear that the particular focus on homosexuality is an artifact of a particular place and time in which many people want to attain wealthy, but few heterosexual people long to be homosexual. This makes homosexuality a 'safe' target for moral opprobrium, since he's unlikely to offend the hopes and desires of most of his congregants by taking an anti-homosexual stand the same way he would if he took an anti-wealth stance.

...and then I went and checked your linvejournal, and I saw that you think Hillary Clinton had Vince Foster killed, and I realized that you're a mouth-breathing sub-literate moron, and my arguments have been wasted. Pity.

I assume this was followed with the sign:

"I ate Lobster and I liked it. Then I went to hell"
