Who’s worse;…the gay man or the two hate-filled dudes claiming to be followers of Christ?
Responding to a book written by an author documenting his struggles as a gay Christian, a Baptist minister wrote the author an email saying “I pray that you will commit suicide.”
Pastor Logan Robertson of the West-city Bible Baptist Church in Auckland, New Zealand wrote the email to Jim Marjoram, author of the book ‘It’s Life Jim,’ written to promote a more gay-friendly Christianity, reports The New Zealand Herald
In the email, Robertson wrote, “We are not interested in your filthy lifestyle or book. The Bible says you are vile, strange (queer), reprobate, filth, sodomite, natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed. I pray that you will commit suicide, you filthy child molesting fag.”
After being informed that his email had created outrage on social media, Robertson denied doing anything wrong, telling NZME News Service, “I didn’t tell him to go and commit suicide. I said I prayed that he would. All I did was write what I wrote, and then I prayed about it that he would, and that’s it. There’s nothing more to say.”
Robertson’s comments come right after a Baptist minister in Arizona promised an “AIDS-free Christmas” if all gays are killed, as God commands.
Recently, Christian anti-gay activist Scott Lively assisted the government of Uganda in instituting a ‘kill the gays’ law. Lively is currently being sued in federal court for violating U.S. law by trying to influence the laws of a foreign country.
