‘Christian’ Preacher Says He’s Furious The US Doesn’t Execute LGBTQ Americans

Brother Salvador Alvarez of Stedfast Baptist Church in Oklahoma City is enraged because LGBTQ Americans aren’t being executed, which he says is in keeping with the teachings of Jesus Christ.

According to Hemant Mehta of The Friendly Atheist, Alvarez was preaching on Sunday when he made his hateful remarks, telling the congregation:

“Now they want to execute judgment on the good who will disdain the abominable act of sodomy: you know, the faggots.

“People who will have a violent attitude towards the faggots and sodomites will be reported as having committed hate crimes.”

Yes, they most certainly will, because everyone is supposed to be equal and entitled to equal protection under the law. I guess Brother Salvador hasn’t had time to read the Constitution. Either that or he read it and is too damn stupid to understand what it says.

Alvarez then spelled out exactly what he had in mind for the LGBTQ community:

“If they were to execute judgment, you know, that ‘he beareth not the sword in vain,’ where they execute, you know, executions, executions like the Bible says? They actually execute? You know, you don’t go with a sword and you know, slap them. It’s the sword to be able to have executions in Romans 13.”

As if that’s not bad enough, Alvarez even had the nerve to compare himself to Jesus as he suggested that executions also be used for anyone who commits adultery:

“If they would actually commit executions on the pedophile, executions on the faggots, on the sodomites. If they had executed, executed, you know, an adulterers are committing adultery with another man’s wife then, then, we wouldn’t have to call them out. There’d be no reason to call out a fox that is not a fox. But Jesus Christ wasn’t afraid to call a fox a fox. He wasn’t afraid to call names.”

Is that right? Well, how about what Romans 12:19 has to say on the subject on vengeance? It says:

Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.

Sounds like God has the punishment angle covered. There’s no need for any of us to take up arms and kill those we disagree with. We tried that during the Crusades and the only thing that accomplished was making everyone else hate Christians for being intolerant asshats.

Salvador Alvarez is a fake Christian. He claims to be a disciple of Jesus, but he sounds more like Hitler than the Prince of Peace.

Snowflake Huckabee Whines About Being Removed From Country Music Board (VIDEO)

Poor Mike Huckabee. He’s upset because even though his favorite bigoted asshat, Donald Trump, is in the White House, it’s still not totally cool to be a hate-filled piece of crap unless you’re willing to accept the consequences.

Just last week, Huckabee was removed from the board of the Country Music Association Foundation due to his offensive remarks about LGBT Americans. So naturally, he decided to go on Fox & Friends Monday morning and be a crybaby, complaining:

“The new direction of the left is ‘in the name of tolerance be intolerant. In the name of love, hate people. In the name of diversity, demand conformity.’”


You’d think that if Huckabee is so enraged by the left, he’d be only too happy to not serve on any board that doesn’t share his beliefs. Instead, he seemed to suggest that he had some kind of right to be allowed on the CMA board:

“It’s not enough to say I disagree and wish this person would change his mind. Today it’s let’s put him out of business, let’s close his store. Let’s not allow him to continue to operate a business, let’s damage him professionally, let’s hurt his brand. I mean, it’s all about destroying the other side, rather than disagreeing with the other side. That’s not the kind of America where the First Amendment reigns and people are free to speak, to associate. Today it’s let’s destroy everyone who doesn’t agree with me.”

In essence, what Mike’s longing for is this: When you could still be a racist, sexist, homophobic shitbag and there were no repercussions for it. You know, the way it was in the 1950s when WASPs ruled the world and there was no such thing as homosexuality or being transgender.

Spare us the outrage, Mike! The biggest outrage of all is that jackasses like you are still given airtime on any network.

REPORT: Trump Often Says Pence ‘Wants To Hang’ All LGBT People

Perhaps you’ve wondered how someone as immoral and corrupt as President Trump manages to work with a supposedly religious person like Vice President Mike Pence. And it turns out the answer definitely proves what massive hypocrites both men are.

In a new report from Jane Mayer of the New Yorker, we learn that Trump is fond of making fun of Pence’s beliefs. During a discussion of gay rights, Trump allegedly pointed to Pence and commented:

“Don’t ask that guy—he wants to hang them all!”

Another time, Mayer notes, a legal scholar told Trump and Pence that even if the Supreme Court did overturn the Roe v. Wade decision which legalized a woman’s right to an abortion, many states would legalize the procedure. That led Trump to tell Pence:

“You see? You’ve wasted all this time and energy on it, and it’s not going to end abortion anyway.”

Trump is also known to ask people who have just come out of a meeting with Pence:

“Did Mike make you pray?”


Given that Pence has such extreme views on so many issues, should Democrats and progressives hope that Trump isn’t forced from office? Ron Klain, who was chief of staff to the former Vice-President Joe Biden, commented:

“There is no success for Mike Pence unless Trump works—he cannot run far enough or fast enough to not get hit by the falling tree. But he may think he can.”

Pence is also far from spotless when it comes to the Russia investigation. As chair of the transition team, Pence personally approved the appointment of Michael Flynn as National Security Adviser. Flynn was later fired when it became clear he had taken large sums of money from both Russia and Turkey. If Pence and his team vetted Flynn, how did they ever allow such a shady figure to be given one of the most important jobs in the new administration? Mayer writes:

“But had Pence stopped Flynn’s appointment Trump might not have become the object of a sprawling special investigation. Phil Sharp, the former Indiana representative, said, ‘There’s a leadership test here. There are real issues, and a failure to do something he was legally, ethically, and politically responsible for.’ Sharp added, ‘It also failed the basic Washington litmus test of self-preservation.’

“On February 13th, Trump fired Flynn, ostensibly for deceiving Pence, who looked like either a liar or a chump.”

Either way–liar or chump–Pence is up to his eyebrows in the Russia investigation. And even if he chooses to toss Trump under the bus, it may not be enough to save his own skin or his beloved Republican Party.

Ted Cruz’s Father Says LGBT Rights Will Lead To Football Teams Showering With Girls

In what may well turn out to be one of the most utterly ridiculous statements yet issued from the far right of the Republican Party, Rafael Cruz, Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s father, is attempting to stir up fear with the assertion that LGBT nondiscrimination ordinances will lead to boys football teams deciding “that they want to shower with the girls.”

Speaking to a Baptist church in Edmond, Oklahoma, last week, Rafael Cruz, began his speech by asserting that the Supreme Court’s actions striking down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) has led to horrible things in towns across America:

“In Houston, Texas, in the heart of the Bible Belt, that city has a lesbian for a mayor. Well, a few months ago that mayor and that city council passed an ordinance that if a man, today, feels like a woman, he has the right to walk into a women’s bathroom. And if a woman is in there and she complains, she can be sued for that man because she is violating his civil rights.”

Does anyone really care who happens to be in a public restroom with them? Personally, I just go in, do my business, wash my hands, and leave. I don’t make it a point of looking around and asking for identification from everyone else in the room. In Europe, many public accommodations are unisex, but they seem to manage just fine, thank you.

But wait, listen as Pastor Cruz (yep, he’s a minister, too) takes his flawed logic and jumps off into the abyss of complete idiocy:

“As a matter of fact, according to that ordinance, if the football team in the high school decides that they want to shower with the girls and the girls complain, they can be sued. This is an abomination!”

Not only that, but pretty soon cats and dogs will be cooperating with each other, mating, and spawning half-cat/half-dog hybrids that will attempt to rule the world! What will we call our new overlords? Cogs? Dats? Or simply “master?”

You know, I’ve heard some really stupid, unbelievable arguments against LGBT rights in recent months, but I think Rafael Cruz has now earned the award for Most Batshit Crazy Hater. I wait with bated breath to hear his next flurry of inanity.

WATCH A Conservative Try (And Fail) To Explain How Obama’s Trans Bathroom Rule Hurt Children

How reassuring it is to know that amidst all the problems that face this country–terrorism, racism, discrimination, the resurgence of domestic hate groups–that the Justice Department under new Attorney General Jeff Sessions decided to choose transgender children as their first priority.

Reversing rules put in place by the Obama Administration, the Department of Justice said Wednesday that decisions about what bathrooms transgender students are allowed to use will now be left to the states. No big deal for trans kids in California or New York, but what about Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi?

On CNN Newsroom Thursday morning, Democrat Bakari Sellers and former Ted Cruz operative Alice Stewart debated the new rule handed down by the Trump team. Stewart said it was a good thing:

“This helps parents protect their children and, look, since those comments that Donald Trump said early on the campaign, he has been quite clear that his view on this is to make it a state’s rights issue, which is what this decision has become.”

Sellers told Stewart the matter was one of civil rights:

“This is not a state’s rights issue, this is a civil rights issue. The American government has the duty to protect all citizens no matter their race, color, creed or sexual orientation.”

Why, Sellers asked Stewart, should the decision which was in place under Obama suddenly be reversed? And he added:

“Since Barack Obama put this guidance in place, can you name me one instance where there’s been a case where a child was put in any type of danger because they now have the ability to go to a restroom that (corresponds) with the gender that they choose?”

Stewart was forced to admit she was not aware of any problems caused, but tried to have it both ways by saying:

“With regard to schools? No, I can’t. I can honestly say I can’t — but I certainly don’t want to wait for something to happen before we take action.”

Bullshit! Alice Stewart, Donald Trump, Mike Pence, and Jeff Sessions just want to put LGBT Americans as far back into the closet as they can. They want to shame them and make their lives hell. And in doing so, these same intolerant assholes are only guaranteeing their own political obsolescence in the very near future.

Here’s the debate on CNN this morning:
