It is getting to the point where this is going to stop being breaking news. Yet another popular pastor in America has called for all gays and lesbians to be put to death. He is not claiming he wants to do it but that the government should. Pastor Curtis Knapp, pastor of the New Hope Baptist Church in Senaca, Kansas calls for the government to kill off the gay community in a chilling audio address (audio below).
Knapp says in the audio,
“They should be put to death — that’s what happened in [biblical] Israel. That’s why homosexuality wouldn’t have grown in Israel. Oh, so you’re saying we should go out and start killing them? No, I’m saying the government should. They won’t, but they should.”
After making the charges he gave an exclusive interview to CNN where he defended calling for their deaths saying,
“We punish pedophilia. We punish incest, we punish polygamy and various things. It’s only homosexuality that is lifted out as an exemption.”
Knapp’s rant seems to follow a chilling trend of members of various churches calling for the extermination of the gay and lesbian communities in the United States.
Recently in North Carolina, Charles L. Worley,a pastor who condemned President Obama’s much-publicized endorsement of same-sex marriage called for gays and lesbians to be put into an electrified pen and allowed to die off.
Ron Baity, founding pastor of Berean Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, North Carolina told his own congregation that gay and lesbian people should be prosecuted as they were historically in the puritan days of America. Pastor Sean Harris of the Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville, North Carolina says that parents should punch male children that have a feminine streak and that if their wrists are limp they should have them cracked.
It is chilling to see how fast the gay and lesbian communities have been proven right when they said this is more than about marriage. This is about the civil rights of an entire community, one in which there is a significant percentage of Americans wish to see wiped out.
