Bigot of the Week Award: June 1, Pastor Curtis Knapp

1 Jun

Bigot of the Week

This past month certainly has assembled a Preacher’s Hall of Shame! Two came from North Carolina. First we had Sean Harris telling parents to break their sons’ wrists if they got “too limp.” Then the vile Charles Worley endorsed death camps for LGBT Americans, much to the delight of his congregation. Now we have Pastor Curtis Knapp (of Kansas, for a change) taking things to their horrific “final solution”. He wants the government to put gays and lesbians to death.

They should be put to death. That’s what happened in Israel. That’s why homosexuality wouldn’t have grown in Israel. It tends to limit conversions. It tends to limit people coming out of the closet.

REALLY? And the far right says that all they want is to maintain their religious freedom? Big Ole Closet Queen Knapp clearly demonstrates that the agenda is as despicable as it gets. Just to prove he meant it, he doubled down on the hate in an interview with CNN.

We punish pedophilia. We punish incest. We punish polygamy and various things. It’s only homosexuality that is lifted out as an exemption.

As crazy icing on his crapcake, he also said that George W. Bush, the man who campaigned on marriage inequality, was “too tolerant” of LGBT Americans. This is a dangerous, scary man.  Who will be next on Knapp’s hate list and sentenced off to the death camps?

    I never know what to say about stupid, hateful people. I just shake my head and laugh out of discomfort. My partner and I agreed that we would prefer hell if heaven is where all these idiots are going. I’d rather spend eternity with the LGBT people in hell. No way it could be bad! Yeah….it really seems like all the nice people are going to hell.

    I find it increasingly disturbing how these hate-mongers can spread threats of violence and death in such a public way yet receive hardly any negative attention in the mainstream.

    If they were talking about women, blacks , jews, etc .. There would be investigative journalists coming out of the woodwork.

    News reports every other day talking about Federal investigations for hate crimes and F.B.I watch lists.

    They take lessons straight from Hitlers playbook and turn them against the LGBT community and it’s “no big deal”

    If I got in front of a news camera or made a publicly accessible video and said ANY of those rants Verbatim, with “Christian” or “Republican” references in place of the LGBT references I would be sitting in a little grey room, without windows, for three straight days answering a whole lotta questions.

      William, I wholly agree. Doesn’t this man present a threat to society? Where is an intervention? Why are we not talking about the Holocaust and how this man is trying to replicate it?

    It reminds me of how when a bunch of people get shot in a white neighborhood, everyone is shocked and crying. Then someone gets shot in the black neighborhood and it doesn’t even make the news.
    Too many people think that it is ok to say bad things about gay people because they had it coming, aka it was their choice.
