Pastor Sean Harris (motto: "Proclaiming Christ Through a Blog in the 21st Century) gave a sermon on Sunday at his church in Fayetteville NC in which he told parents to beat their children if they showed signs of being gay:
Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over and crack that wrist. Man up. Give him a good punch, OK? … You were made by god to be a male and you're going to be a male.
And when your daughter starts acting too butch, you rein her in. And you say "Oh no - oh no sweetheart. You can play sports. Play 'em; play 'em to the glory of God. But sometimes you're gonna act like a girl and walk like a girl and talk like a girl and smell like a girl. And that means you're going to be beautiful, you're going to be attractive, you're gonna dress yourself up."
Those in the opposition are suggesting all sorts of hateful things and using ungodly and profane words. Those who speak of the love of God are using the most hateful terms I have ever read. We must never resort to such language.
And in his fake apology (with the classic "I apologize to anyone I have unintentionally offended") he says "I have never suggested children or those in the LGBT lifestyle should be beaten, punched, abused (physically or psychologically) in any form or fashion." I guess that part's true, because in his sermon he commanded, rather than suggested, fathers to punch their gay sons.

In the creepily bland feature lists and nerdy product names is a whisper of a dark future; perhaps darker than anyone can imagine.
