“I had a homosexual son. I know the power of god and I prayed for my son and god broke that demonic spirit. My son is married now, he has two children,” said Pastor Wright."

Yeah, and is probably sucking dick in the glory hole at the local truck stop...

6. Excellent point, Curt. Meddling of this type will blow-up in the pastor's face eventually.

He puts up a sign that drips with hatred and then claims it's not about hate.

Fuck him.

8. Well, I dare say . . .

. . . that he preaches the same thing from his pulpit. Should he be precluded from doing so?

9. No. Wherever did you get the idea that I thought any such thing?

But I must say, people choose to go hear him at his church. You can't choose to not see that sign as you drive by. And no, I'm still not suggesting that the 1st should be changed.

14. Well, I suppose I was curious as to your thinking as to this . . .

. . . since you initiated the post by "praising" an unlawful act . . . the malicious destruction of private property, which destruction was presumably motivated -- i.e., this is assuming that the vandalism was not itself a hoax perpetrated by the pastor himself, for instance -- by the vandal's disagreement with the sentiments being expressed on the church's marquee.

I find that attitude troubling, myself, and I was simply wondering how far your contrary view took you, that's all.

13. This bogus con man 'pastor' and his congregation are definitive bigots, hate mongers and traders

in division. What sort of depraved people would not only put such a sign up but leave it up in the face of Orlando?

Vandals like these do a public service.

and leave the message there for the world to see that the church is run by hateful people who don't follow
their savior's message to love one another.

Besides, two wrongs don't. . . (you know the rest)
