Pastor Orders His Flock to Beat Gay Couple Arriving At Church

Author: October 4, 2011 7:12 am

Jerry Pittman Jr, on the right and his boyfriend, Dustin Lee.

No one would be surprised to learn that there are right-wing Christians in this country who disapprove of homosexuality.  Neither would it come as a surprise  that in rural parts of this country, Christianity and homosexuality when brought together, can create a highly combustible mix.

But who could imagine the hate and rage that would motivate a Pastor to instruct deacons and members of his congregation, Grace Fellowship Church in Fruitland, TN. to physically attack a couple arriving in the church parking lot last Wednesday?

The fact that one of the gay men attacked happened to be the Pastor’s own son, Jerry Pittman, Jr., no doubt contributed to Pittman senior’s noxious edict.  According to Pittman Jr., after hearing his Dad yell, “SICK’EM!:”

“My uncle and two other deacons came over to the car per my dad’s request. My uncle smashed me in the door as the other deacon knocked my boyfriend back so he couldn’t help me, punching him in his face and his chest. The other deacon came and hit me through my car window in my back.”


The attackers also verbally assaulted the couple continually with anti-gay verbiage which continued even after a Sheriff’s Deputy arrived on the scene. Bystanders and other congregants made no effort to stop the assault. For that matter, neither did the Deputy Sheriff. Once the barrage of punches ended, the Deputy refused to let the two victims press charges.

Jerry Pittman Jr. and his boyfriend, Dustin Lee, have since filed  charges against two of the men who beat them as well as Pastor Jerry Pittman.  A hearing has been scheduled in Gibson County Court for Tuesday, October 4th.

One can’t help but wonder if Pastor Pittman really thinks Jesus would back him up on this assault?

  • I sure would like a follow up on this. Has anyone heard more about if this was reported as a hate crime and were charges made against the officer in question?

  • [email protected]

    I’m openly gay and from this area. I received the following info from pro-gay confidants in the area.

    THere’s a lot more to this story than it appears in this story. The son and bf had been attending the church for 2 yrs without incident. THings got ugly between father and son when the son reported to his stepmother than his father was cheating on her. Divorce proceedings ensued (significant that, in the event the church folded, the church property reverted to the father’s name and would be part of the divorce) and the son still showed up for services on the morning in question. It couldn’t be proven that the father yelled ‘sick em’, but it became clear that, when the elders approached the son/bf to tell them to leave, the son lashed out first. Unfortunately for him this makes it self-defense in the eyes of the law and he killed his own case. Regardless, it’s also pretty clear that the elders used seriously un-Christian words – fag etc – against them in this incident, so shame on them. Can only speculate about the son’s motivation for showing up where he knew he was no longer welcome, but it’s not likely his main purpose was to worship.

    This church and its founder/members are notoriously low class people. In the words of my mother when we discussed this, “What do you expect from trash?”

  • Hell is too good for these people, there needs to be a place even worse than Hell for the Grace Fellowship Church.

  • (reiterating from my Facebook reply to this travesty, as no one took notice.) Now, I’m not one to perpetuate hate with more hate, but those “Christians” genuinely need to have the shit kicked out of them to teach them some humility. I highly recommend anyone in that area find these people and invoke street justice, because it’s unlikely that they will actually meet anything of the sort in this life or the “next”. Make them bite the curb and pay for their sins. In regard to the sheriff, he failed to perform his duty in a very blatant fashion. Punish him.

    P.S. The ultimate justice would be for the hate filled bastards to go to jail and become someones bitch.

  • Dictionary: Mental Illness (noun) any of various disorders in which a person’s thoughts, emotions, or behaviour are so abnormal as to cause suffering to himself, herself, or other people.

  • Wow. The story is about a southern, presumablely Baptist church. Actually, though your comment is at the other end of the spectrum politically, I think you and Destiny would get along just fine. Bigots and hatemongers, who feel better when they besmirch the target of their aggression. I’m sure you will probably aim a few choice comments my way in your own witty fashion, but I will pray for you.

  • Unfortunately, all sorts of abominations have been carried out with ‘good’ people looking on. Are they scared to countermand authority, afraid the same thing might happen to them? Or do they just respond to peer pressure. the glaring example of this is Hitler’s extermination of the Jews. Evil will prevail when good people do nothing.

  • @LoveEveryone

    Excuse me, but White people were not the first ones to use slavery at all!
    In fact Egyptians, Jews, Arabs, muslims and christians (middle eastern) were using slavery in their societies long before Europeans (whites) in fact between 900ad and 1500 ad muslim arabs regularly sailed to the shores of Europe and the UK specifically to capture white slaves, this was long before the British empire, and Europeans used slavery. Europeans were the last people to adopt it.

    And actually black African elite slaved their own kind, sold them to Arab slave drivers, and later European elite slave drivers.
    I’m sick of people branding slavery as a “white” thing. That’s utter nonsense.

    • And here is a little known facttoid, the US was the last ‘civilized’ country to abolish slavery by about 100 years if my recollection is correct.

      • Actually, I think Brazil had slavery for awhile after we abolished it. But your point is well taken; we were way late to get that memo.

      • You Rbd171 are wrong…but Brazil outlawed it several years following the USA and Mauritania just outlawed it in 2006 and still do not enforce its law on this. So Slavery still exists in this world…

  • the darketh one

    I know this “church” does not represent all Christians, so let me note that my comment is directed at the Hypo-Christians only.

    My word! Do you people even read your own Holy Book?? No, seriously?!

    To all those using OT Leviticus and OT stoning laws as your arguments against Gays I say this. Do you follow the NT, therefore leaving (at least a large portion) of the OT behind? If the answer is yes, than you have to let these idiotic arguments go. At least Jewish people follow all the OT Leviticus Laws and not just pick and choose like you lot. Mixing clothes of two fabrics, working on the sabbath, eating shellfish were all considered abominations in the eyes of the Lord. And don’t give the ol’, “but Saul/Paul did a ritual and made it OK” shtick. Who do you people follow? Saul/Paul? Or Jesus?!!
    Jesus Himself said, he who is without sin casteth the first stone. So who among you are sinless?? That’s right no one!!

    Jesus would be ashamed of you all.

    • I for one am ashamed of today’s so called Christian community that I keep hearing about. I am a gay Christian in my community, I attend a radically inclusive congregation and ministerial staff that is outstanding and understanding. I used to be in our worship group singing, but now I’ve moved to recording the audio portion of the services. I used to fight being gay because of how I was raised, Roman Catholic, but when I accepted myself for who I was God removed the weight from my shoulders. It is getting even harder for LBGT people to accept what we teach of the bible but these people would sooner listen to God’s word through our ministry and more likely than any secular church ever built. Jesus taught with love first then the rest will fall into place as Jesus deals with the inside.

  • The fact that one of the gay people is the pastor’s son makes it creepier than just it being a pair of gay people. Where is the father’s love of a son? Did the son want to ask the father for the love he never got? Did he expect it to work out this time after never having worked before? What kind of monster is the pastor and what kind of Gadarene swine are the parishioners to follow the father on his monstrous course. I think the gay son is better off not hoping, however painful that might be. Maybe being beaten up will help the son give up his hope of being loved by his father.

    • The pastor/father was angry with his son for telling mom that he was running around on her. At least he wasn’t Catholic it might have been an alter boy.

  • Reverend Andrews you should be ashamed of your lack of knowledge and more so of your dishonesty. You say “the bible was originally written in Hebrew, so I suggest learning how to read Hebrew & study the bible in it’s original language & context before you start misquoting it.” But you haven’t done that yourself, because you have the language wrong.

  • Destiny.. I pity ur sore ass! U are such a great example as to why people act in horrible ways as such!!! You need serious mental help!!! Better yet, do the world a favor, jump off a bridge.. Moron!

  • They should be charged with battery. As soon as there is physical contact, the charge is increased and the penalty more severe.

  • That’s the Old Testament, dear. Christianity departed from those traditions. They also eat lobster and pig. They work on the Sabbath.

    Of course there are hateful Christians, and hateful things Christians have done in the name of their religion, but it did genuinely mark a shift toward tolerance, peace, care for neighbors…

  • First, Jesus was a Jew. The new Christians didn’t start attacking Jews as responsible for killing their Christ until they started to attract Greek converts who were less excited about the church’s position on the Greeks who ran the judicial system that organized the crucifixion.

    Destiny, your father must be seriously ashamed of you and your ignorance and your hate mongering. From your comment that he took you to a church, it sounds like he made an attempt to teach you right and wrong and teach you about the love of Christ. Is his shame why you’re so upset with him?

  • Oh, and for anyone interested in a forum, one of which I’ve noted several self-purported members of this church posting in, see http://www.topix.com/forum/city/rutherford-tn/TCN2U0QHIM5L354QO/p7 You can see older posts or newer ones, that links just directs to some of the newer ones.

    Beware, though: The spelling/grammar is, well, atrocious in most posts. LoL

  • Should anyone be inclined to offer this “church”, err, cult, their feelings, I’m pretty sure this is the correct info. If not, please correct.

  • Filthy….Low-Life….Sub-Human….Hypocrite….SONS OF BITCHES.

    These cretins should be charged in Federal Court for a Hate Crime. Every member of this so-called “church” should be charged as an Accessory. If we need to build a new jail to hold them all, I’ll bring a shovel to help.

    People, it is time to stop standing idly by while religious fanatics attempt a coup d’etat in this country. They want one thing, and one thing only, rule by the bible. Are we just going to watch?

    Oh, and by the way, that would be prohibited by the U.S. Constitution. You know, that sacred document that these Bastards claim to love so much.

  • “Pastor” Pittman and his cohorts should be placed under arrest for assault. Plain and simple. They are criminals. They’ve assaulted two people trying to come to worship. They are hypocrites. I’ve never understood people who claim to follow the teachings of Christ, and haven’t a clue what those teachings are. Love God, Love one another – kinda simple to me. All this bullcrap from the Bible that’s misquoted, misinterpreted, and probably mistranslated in the first place, doesn’t even relate to the New Testament and Christ’s teachings. Unfortunately, this forum won’t accomplish much except let some of us air our rage and frustration that bigots like this are allowed to run free. It’s probably one argument against living in a “free” society (sarcasm here). I truly hope some civil action is taken against these people. They are a boil on the butt of humanity.

  • You really can’t be serious…so you mean to say that because some Jewish people are responsible for his death that every Jewish person thereafter should be held equally accountable….well then every white person should be held accountable for slavery in the past…it is stupid to condemn an entire group of people for a mistake of the few. You sould like Hitler.

  • Destiny and where in the Bible does that nice Jewish guy by the name of Jesus, say it’s okay to beat the snot out of people you disagree with? Those men have every right to go to Church as you do, there are homosexuals that do go to Church. They are TRYING to live their lives, but jerks like you make it difficult and treat them like they’re garbage. Yes, they had choices about going to that church, they chose to go. The Pastor also had other choices about how to handle it, the deputy made the choice to do nothing, and those who witnessed chose not to help either. You’re an ignorant pig, destiny.

  • Attacking someone is hardly just a disagreement.

  • Honestly and sincerely, my faith in “humanity” dwindles almost daily. Why are there such hateful savages out there? I know a lot of genuinely good people, but then I hear of stories like this, which fundamentally challenges every hope that I have or ever had about people generally being ‘good’, the latter as Locke would have put it.

  • So Joe, what does that have to do with this group of intolerant unChristian fundies attacking these boys? Do you think this father is going to be let off free on judgment day? If so,you are in for a huge unpleasant surprise. ALL will be under judgment who sinned deliberately, whether fundy Protestant or professing Catholic.

  • Disagreement doesn’t equal bigot. People need to grow up and stop labeling all religious people the same. Actually I am tired of t intolerant attitudes from both sides of the issue.bigotry.

  • It seems the “reverand” here is more than a little confused. The Bible was written in Hebrew and Aramaic in the Old Testament, and translated into Aramaic and Greek. The NEW TESTAMENT was written entirely in spoken Greek, though the spoken language of Jesus was probably Aramaic. This is not the only way the “reverand” is completely confused about the Bible. Jesus also said something that applies to the “reverand” here: “WHEN THE BLIND LEAD THE BLIND, THEY WILL BOTH FALL INTO A DITCH.”

  • destiny…. i feel ashamed to be part of the human race, simply because of you. all of the gay people that i know, are beautiful wonderful people. and you talk about them like you should be talking about yourself. you really should be ashamed of yourself. i’m not trying to change your thinking on the subject. i just hope that i can help you to understand better that you, and people like you, are the problem. those men wanted to worship the lord. just like you.. except they do it with kindness in their hearts. as to where you so obviously worship, and live your life with hate and unfounded judgement in yours. if you are looking for the real issue, look to yourself..

  • So you think that means a deliberate sin is forgiveable? Jesus said — in words written in clear, simple GREEK — “Inasmuch as you have done this to the least of these my brethren, YOU HAVE DONE IT TO ME.” In the judgment there will be no excuses for this like your inexcusable one.

  • Actually Reverend…The passage is “For the love of money is the root of all evil”

    Big difference in Money is the root of all evil and The LOVE of money is the root of all evil

    How does a Reverend NOT know this?

  • Rev. A. R. Andrews

    Like Jesus said, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone”. No human(besides a newborn) is without sin, that includes the pope(a former Nazi). The best description of man in the bible is “Man is flawed”.

  • Rev. A. R. Andrews

    I don’t know where you think you read that, but you are wrong. The bible says “Honor thy mother & thy father.” Yes, it does mention getting rid of worldly possessions, but that is because of the teaching that “money is the root of evil”. And here is a little known fact, the bible was originally written in Hebrew, so I suggest learning how to read Hebrew & study the bible in it’s original language & context before you start misquoting it.

  • smh…it is sad, religion or not violence should not be acceptable period, unless self defense. Why do people think they have the right to tell me how to live my life. I pay taxes, bills mind my own business..YOU tell me I can’t get married but YOU have a high divorce rate, cheat, but sit and judge me..hmmmm. YOU are entitled to your opnion like I am…I just find it odd that YOU want to tell me how to live my life there are so many other things going on in this world…really the same ones are just so curious as to what we do but denounce us…hmmmm..I look at like this I don’t sleep with you, I take care of my own.. I owe YOU nothing..when that day comes WE all will have to answer.

  • Um. The last time I checked there was no “Church Of Gay”, and gays could be any religion they wanted, and it’s generally a standard of religions to be very accepting, at least in their claimed beliefs. Also, how can you exclude people because their group isn’t specifically mentioned in the Bible? Did the bible say golfers are right? or taxi drivers? In fact the Bible did say things like “Love your neighbor as yourself” which wasn’t appended with “unless they are gay”. Your words are very hateful and uncompassionate. How as a self identifying Christian can you wish violence and pain on anyone for themselves trying to worship Christ?

  • Destiny, Jesus was Jewish.

  • Bobbie Jo Justice

    do NOT feed me that nonsense about homosexuality being a sin simply because superstitious cave dwellers said so, unless you are also MURDERING all police officers, firefighters, doctors, nurses and others who work on the sabbath, as listed in your babble, er, sorry, I mean bible.

  • It is now Tuesday the 4th, is there going to be a follow up story to this matter at all?

  • You are right. The catholic church has a long history of torturing confessions out of people, accusing families of witchcraft then after hanging them, taking their land and all money, not to mention the priests who molest young boys…your right, the catholic church can do no wrong.

  • You are an intolorent asshole.

  • gays have their own churches they dont need to mock christans with perverse lifestyles and I know about their churches because my gay dad forced me to go to one with him…gays are very sick…and no where does the bible say that lifestyle is right or that he would bless the gays if they got married…gays need to just shut up live their lives and stop causing trouble for themselves. so if they didnt want to get beat up they did have other choices.

    • You, destiny, are an idiot. How on earth is attending your father’s church with your significant other “mocking.” They did not choose to “get beat up” you victim-blaming piece of shit.

      • Destiny, your backwater, naive, redneck ignorance is shining through. Perhaps you should join the Grace Fellowship Church, you’d feel right at home. It’s people like you that make liberals (yes, actual THINKERS) despise the right/religious right so much. Go preach hate and bigotry elsewhere, bitch.

  • jewish have no place to talk about what jesus taught you killed him on a cross in a horrid way. so the jewish have many issues as well as other religions.

    • Destiny, you really should stop commenting here. Everything you are posting indicts you as very simple, angry, hateful, ignorant bigot.

    • Actually, the Romans drove the nails, but that isn’t the point. Scripture says Jesus died for the sins of the world. That means my sins, and your sins. That means you and I killed him, so let’s stop pointing fingers at other people, shall we?

  • Fuck the Church, The Pope and religion period.

  • highwaterjane60

    Well… maybe yes, or maybe, no. This message was recently sent out by the more urban diocese in Minnesota.
    “A group calling itself “Catholics for Marriage Equality MN” seeks to confuse Catholics and the public about authentic Church teaching related to matters of marriage and sexuality. The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis and the Minnesota Catholic Conference wish to make it known that this group does not speak for the Catholic Church, is not an agent or entity of the Archdiocese, MCC, or the universal Church, and has no authority to determine what does and does not constitute Christian doctrine and morality. The Archdiocese asks that Catholics avoid associating themselves with this group, and not be deceived by its messages, which are in conflict with the fundamental teachings of the Church.
    “Catholics for Marriage Equality MN” attempts to convince Catholics that they can be in good standing with the Church and oppose Church teaching about human sexuality and marriage, which centers on the complementarity of the sexes and the mutual self-gift of loving spouses in marital union. The group also misleads people by proposing a false ecclesiology that undermines the legitimate authority of the bishops and the Magisterium as the authentic guardian, interpreter, and teacher of the faith handed to the apostles by Jesus Christ.”

    .

  • Guess the fundy dullards missed how the NT supercedes the violence of the OT with Jesus’ message of inclusion, compassion, and pacifism.

    Never could understand people who don’t know the tenets of their own religion.

  • Ah, the cherry picking of religionists. Jesus also said that to be his follower you have to throw away all your worldly goods and hate your father, your mother, your brother and sister and life itself. Do you do those things, Andrea?

  • It’s a Southern Baptist thing. To them once you’ve been baptized that’s it. You don’t really have to follow anything Jesus actually taught or said. They actually think you’re “saved” automatically at the point of baptism and you won’t be judged by your actions. Several passages in the Bible makes it clear that simply isn’t true — Matthew 25:31-46 (the Sheep and the Goats). All people and all nations will be judged on how they treat the poor and the sick.

  • Dennis, it seems as though you do not have the authority to speak for Christianity. Especially in light of your lack of understanding of Christianity. The verses you quoted are of the Old Testament and an old covenant. If left with those you would be considering Judaism. Christianity, however, lives upon the New Testament, with a foundation upon the Old Testament. Here are some more accurate and relevant verses:

    James 4:11-12 “Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?”

    John 8:7 “And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” ”

    Matthew 6:14-15 “For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

    Galations 5:14 “For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” ”

    Galations 6:1-3 “Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”

    I am a Christian and the acts toward and upon Jerry and Dustin are abominable and horrifying in the least. They are not in line with what Jesus taught and because of this I suggest the resignation of the Pastor for he also does not understand, in his heart, the teachings of Jesus.

    The worst that would be in line with scripture would be to ask that Jerry and Dustin not attend the church or call themselves Christians because they are actively living against scripture. This is the worst though. They never should have been treated as they were.

    Jesus said, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

    On behalf of faithwalking Christians, I beg forgiveness for these hellish actions against Jerry and Dustin. This hatred is not our faith. Love is our faith.

    1 John 4:8 “Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.”

  • You’ve taken ancient Jewish verses and used them against Christians. Jesus taught to “turn the other cheek” and “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” He consorted with thieves and adulterers. He loved sinners; which is a good thing since we are all sinners. My faith is a loving, caring faith. I love the people I don’t agree with as well as those I do. This pastor and the rest of the people who beat these boys, were in the wrong. They failed to do the most basic of Christ’s commandments; “Love one another”.

  • My God what is wrong with people in the world today. To think that they can preach that God is a being of unconditional love, and in th same breath say, “but God hates gays” is a slap in the face of God, reason, and humanity itself. I think it’s sad that people use the bible as a crutch to justify their own hate.

  • That’s the point – to get beat up, to show people that there violence is hollow and pathetic. To show the world there are such savages, and you can stand up to them. Every advance towards decency and humanity throughout history has been met with violence, but that doesn’t mean you shy away from the advance.

  • Dennis: would it have been OK if the church had “stoned” the two young men to death with the Father throwing the first stone? I don’t understand your coldness to the situation. Stoning is the same as beating someone to death. No difference.

    • You’re misinterpreting Dennis’ post. He was simply quoting from Deuteronomy (in the Bible), demonstrating the biblical “validation” that underlies the punitive and cruel attitude some Christians have. He did not in any way appear to advocate such cruelty himself.

  • This young couple needs to get the heck out of Fruitland (no pun intended) and go somewhere where they can treated with respect and dignity. I do not advocate fear or cowardice, but this is a hopeless situation to stay there, and hopefully they can build for themselves a good healthy life.

  • This kind of thing would never have happened at a Catholic church…just saying!

  • Um neither of these young men appear to be drunkards or gluttons. They also should have the right to be where ever they choose. Also it seems there is no indication of why they would come to the church without being asked. This is tantamount to saying a women should not leave her house without a burka since to do so would mean she wants to be raped.

  • Considering his father was the pastor at the church, he likely thought it was a safe place for him to be. I highly doubt he figured his own father would order the members of the church to beat him and his boyfriend.

  • I grew up in Tennessee and I think Tennessee is a wonderful place and the people are for the most part very hospitable. I hate that Tennessee continues to be at the forefront of bigotry and racism. I attribute these things to religious isolationism. I hold the church’s responsible for nowhere in the bible did Jesus have an opinion one on homosexuality, furthermore nowhere did Jesus condone violence other than turning over the tables of the religious leaders of that time. This I learned through actually reading the bible and not taking the word of a pastor or minister. So maybe the good people of Tennessee need to follow Christ and turn the tables over of their religious leaders. We need to be able to think for ourselves and not be programmable robots carrying out the hate and disinformation of our fathers and so on. Love you Tennessee, but join the 21st century. Go Vols.

  • That is terrible and those people should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. That being said, not every Christian feels that way. Infact, most Christians would never think to beat anyone regardless of their sexual orientation. Blaming the Christian faith for incidents like this is like blaming all Muslims for 9/11. There are crazy people of every religion and I hope that the pastor and deacons are punished severely. Just like anyone else who breaks the law.

  • This incident is beyond appalling, but both Mr. Pittman, jr. and Mr. Lee…living where they do, and close to where I do…should have been well aware that going into the parking lot of a “Christian” church…that TYPE of “Christian” church was tantamount to openly begging for a beating. That in NO way excuses the beating they received, but if you knowingly go among savages you must then expect savagery…and this type of backwoods religious fanatic is not fundamentally different from some isolated foreign native tribe whose religion dictates that all “outsiders” be be destroyed. It would never occur to either type to doubt that their religion DID NOT give them ultimate authority over all others in the world. They are both deeply ignorant and deeply dangerous, though education certainly might help, as long as they are so dangerous, they must be avoided for one’s own personal safety. Granted, progress is made by confronting such groups, but mass protests have much more impact on the minds of duch people.

  • “One can’t help but wonder if Pastor Pittman really thinks Jesus would back him up on this assault?”
    He’s just being a good christian, and a very restrained one at that…
    Deuteronomy 21:18-21
    King James Version (KJV)
    18: If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:
    19: Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place;
    20: And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.
    21: And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.
    Don’t EVER let anyone tell you christianity is a loving, careing faith. This is not even close to the worst it prescribes to it’s adherents…

  • I just can’t believe this. They should file a HUGE lawsuit against the “church”, the “pastor”, the “deacon” and the MTF “sheriff”.. I keep saying this, IT IS TIME TO STOP BEING NICE PEOPLE.
