Another Baptist pastor calls for gay genocide

BUT pastor Curtis Knapp, of New Hope Baptist Church in Seneca, Kansas, doesn’t think his parishioners should dirty their hands in the slaughter: it’s a job for the Government.

Pastor Knapp

Knapp, in a sermon called The Curse of Homosexuality, which you can here at this link, said President Barack Obama had gone too far in supporting same sex marriage and it’s time for the US Government to begin killing gay men and lesbians.

Knapp went on to read from Leviticus 20:

If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death.

Knapp declared:

They should be put to death … 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.

You say, ‘Oh, I can’t believe you, you’re horrible. You’re a backwards neanderthal of a person’. Is that what you’re calling scripture? Is God a neanderthal, backwards in his morality? Is it His word or not? If it’s His word, he commanded it. It’s His idea, not mine. And I’m not ashamed of it.

He continued:

He said put them to death. Shall the church drag them in? No, I’m not say that. The church has not been given the power of the sort; the government has. But the government ought to [kill them]. You got a better idea? A better idea than God?

His sermon comes within weeks of a North Carolina pastor suggesting that lesbians and gays should be put behind electrified fences and left to die.

Meanwhile, for you delectation, watch a four-year-old getting a standing ovation in church for singing Ain’t no homos gonna make it to heaven.

    Such repugnant people is rejected by the true Jesus, who never endorsed the atrocities of Leviticus an Paul! The verses in the Gospels that asy otherwise are LIES! Such abject pastors should be out im jail on in a criminal asylum for life! Jesus loathes homophobes!

  2. AgentCormac says:


    While I applaud your condemnation of fellow christians who use the bible to hate and subjugate others, I am intrigued to understand how you know that “Jesus loathes homophobes”.

  3. rainbowman56 says:

    Simply: he was at least bisexual, he supported the persecuted and downtrodden against religious hypocrisy, and He fostere Love, not hate. Plus He condemned paedophilia, common amongst homophobes. That pastor has the facies of a paedophile, don’t you think?

    “Simply: he was at least bisexual”

    And you know this how?

  5. rainbowman56 says:

    “The Beloved Disciple” (Lazarus^ Johannes? Who knows?) who rested on his bosom. And he loved Mary Magdalene, or so we reckon.

    Hey, Rainbowman56. So you say are a True Christian and support freethinking – bit of a contradiction there. And you’ve met this Jesus guy?

  7. AgentCormac says:

    Thanks, rainbowman56. That’s cleared everything up. Not.

  8. Daz says:

    Oh wow!

    I am a true Christian and I fully support gay rights and gay marriage

    Okay, now why don’t you run along and tell all those other people who also claim to be True Scotsmen Christians what they’re doing wrong. And, come to think of it, tell them how you know you’re right and they’re wrong.
