“You may be as straight as an arrow, and you may have a friend that is as straight as an arrow,” she told the Journal. “Say you had a great job with the government where you had this wonderful health plan. I mean, what would prohibit you from saying that you’re gay, and y’all get married and still live as separate, but you get all the benefits? I just see so much abuse in this it’s unreal. I believe a husband and a wife should be a man and a woman, the benefits should be for a man and a woman. There is no way that this is about equality. To me, it’s all about a free ride.” - Georgia GOP Chairwoman Sue Everhart
I’m sorry Ms. Everhart, but you are an absolute idiot. What is stopping two friends, who happen to be straight, from doing this now? Or better yet, if we (the gay community) can’t get married legally, what happens if gay men decide to marry gay women to receive said benefits? Anyone who wants a free ride can do it, with or without gay marriage being legal. The argument that Sue Everhart is making has no validity and is rather moronic to even mention, if you ask me.
There is also the issue of marriage fraud in order to obtain citizenship. Does she not know that this is already something that occurs? And even though marriage has been legal for many years and people have been fraudulently marrying, the percentage of those who do so is INCREDIBLY low.
I understand that she’s striving to put forth a better argument than ‘the bible doesn’t allow it’, but this is just a pathetic attempt to keep homosexuals as second class citizens.
“If it was natural, they would have the equipment to have a sexual relationship,” Everhart told the Journal.
[VIDEO] Chick-Fil-A Lover Speaks Eloquently About The Controversial Situation And How She No Longer Supports Them
The long and short of it– on 8/1 (the day Mike Huckabee wants Chick-Fil-A supporters to patronize the restaurant) go to Chick-Fil-A. Ask for a large water and nothing else. See if they adhere to Proverbs 25:21 and give it to you. If they do, yay! You took a few cents from their hate fund! If they don’t, well…I guess they’re proving their principals aren’t so “biblical.”
If you’re in, pass the word on, please. #Proverbs2521
Also, while I consider myself well-versed in the Bible, Bradley Hartman saved me EPIC AMOUNTS OF TIME by writing a very awesome open letter to Chick-Fil-A that helped me locate these passages. Many thanks.
With everything being said from both sides, I feel this was very well said. Do the right thing and don’t let Chick-Fil-A encourage hate and homophobia.
This YouTube user also had this to say:

[VIDEO] Pastor Condemns ‘lesbians and queers’ in Sermon Saying They ‘should be put in electrified pen to let them die off’
I am absolutely disgusted by this two-minute video and feel sick after hearing how he spoke about the homosexual community. Pastor Charles Worley, 71, decided it would be great to preach hate on Mother’s Day at Providence Road Baptist Church in North Carolina. Sadly, this Pastor who is supposed to preach about God‘s love for his children (all children) has condemned homosexuals for a very long time. A local television station was able to find a video from 1978 where his views seemed to be the same they are now.
‘We’re living in a day, when you know what, it saddens my heart to think homosexuals can go around – Bless God – and get the applause of a lot of people. Lesbians and all the rest of it – Bless God – 40 years ago they would have hung them – Bless God – from a white oak tree. Wouldn’t they? Amen. Sure they would,’ Mr Worley says on the previous recording.
Not only am I tired of hearing people judge me based on how they interpreted the Bible, but I’m fed up with us just sitting back and waiting for people to understand that we are harmless and would just like to love who we choose to love. This has nothing to do with politics or any “gay agenda“; I have enough shit going on in my life, I don’t need to be conspiring with the all the other gays about how we can ‘turn’ the rest of you breeders. Come on, how fucking ridiculous does that sound?! To me, it sounds just as stupid as believing in the Easter Bunny… He doesn’t exist, and neither does any agenda. Besides, if that was our ultimate goal, we would subsequently be condemning the human race to not exist because we’re very aware of how the reproductive system works
Also, it was hard enough to hear this man speak on something he knows NOTHING about, but hearing the cheers and ‘amens’ after what he said, was heartbreaking. I cannot believe that many people support this man and his hate-filled sermon. You are in Church to learn about God, forgiveness, love, and everything else the Bible teaches to instill good moral values. Instead, you listen to a man who is stuck in his ways, and has been since the 70′s (outdated), and ignore the lessons taught by the Bible. Who is more important to you: Pastor Charles Worley or God?
And here is what some of his congregation thinks (no wonder North Carolina is so screwed up, people like this live there):

First of all, I just want to make a point of mentioning that this is sarcasm and I don’t feel that all Christians say or act like this. Being religious is your personal choice and being non-religious, is mine. This video made me laugh and does portray how many extreme Christians act, at least from what I have seen, being a lesbian. If you can’t find the humor, then I suggest you lighten up a bit and don’t take yourself so seriously. The only judgment you’re allowed to make….oh wait! As a Christian, you shouldn’t be judging me, because that’s God‘s job…
I had to get in on the fun before the “Shit _____ Say” meme completely falls from grace. Yay God!

Smith’s nephew left Diamond, the one-year-old female pit bull with his aunt whom he shared a home with while he went away. When he came back to the home, he found no trace of the dog and had assumed that she managed to free herself from the chain she was normally tied to on the porch. Fortunately, an environmental enforcement officer had come across the dog’s body thanks to the smell of kerosene that was coming from beneath a mound of dried grass.
Diamond was found with an orange extension cord loosely tied around her neck and had some recognizable burns on her body. No animal deserves this kind of treatment for chewing one’s bible. And no one that reads the bible should feel that murdering a helpless animal is a good thing to do. What a sick and twisted woman.
Authorities said bail was not immediately set for Smith, who remains jailed in Spartanburg County, South Carolina after her weekend arrest.
Smith is charged with ill treatment of animals in general, torture, according to an arrest warrant.
She faces 180 days to five years in prison if convicted.
I hope this bitch gets the five years she deserves. Not only did she kill the poor dog, but she did it in the most inhumane way I could imagine. Sadly, diamond had to suffer and struggle for air before having her body burned and tossed away.

Really? You choose to masturbate behind the podium while teaching a class? Where do you cum? Do you have an obvious orgasm in front of the students? And most importantly, why? What is it that you’re thinking about that would encourage you to do this in a classroom full of students?
Paul LaDuke, 75, is the man who was caught masturbating after a ten-year period of getting away with being a pervert. I’m shocked that he even has a sex drive at his age, yet along to masturbate frequently in a room full of underage children. And what kind of school was this? A Christian school in Schaumburg, Illinois, that is supposed to educate the students about math, history, english, as well as morality through the teachings in the Bible.
A student in his class told another teacher that he “appeared to be masturbating while seated at his podium during class.”
It’s apparent that this student was much more focused on his teachers multi-tasking than his or her own schoolwork. tsk tsk.

Mike Zovath is the project manager for this ark that will be built and serve as the main attraction in the park itself. He plans to make the Ark as it was made in the bible, both inside and out. If you’re curious as to the size, it is 500 feet long and 80 feet high. This will take quite some time and cost quite a lot of money. This along with other features that the park plans to build will cost about $155 million.
The intention behind building this ark and the park, is to show that’s God’s word is true. I don’t see how a large amount of workers, with great financial resources, will prove that one single man, Noah, was able to build this large Ark by himself in the allotted time with limited funds and tools. To me, this proves nothing, except that a ship of that nature could be made in a time where there is more technological advancements and people in power who are financially stable and able to spend money on useless projects to prove their religion right.
Either way, the project is under way and many people will feel that this is proof that God’s word is true and they are on the right path. If this is what works for you, then that’s fine, but for me, it just seems rather silly.
I may be a bit biased though due to their original project, the Creation Museum. In this museum they challenge evolution and stand by their claim that the Earth was created 6,000 years ago. As most everyone knows, evolution has been scientifically proven. Religion trumps science in the mind of these people, and this is why I disagree with both the Creation Museum as well as Ark Encounter.
‘The ark is really a different approach’ than the museum, Zovath said. ‘It’s really not about creation-evolution, it’s about the authority of the Bible starting with the ark account in Genesis.’
Inside the ark’s headquarters in Hebron, a small team of artists and designers are working on the visuals at the new park, but once the project begins early next year, there will be hundreds at the creation, including a team of Amish builders from Indiana who will erect the giant ark.

Keemonta Peterson, 30, has been arrested for attempting to circumcise her three-month-old son while at their home. She did this with no medical assistance, but with the help of YouTube videos and reading from the Old Testament.
She has, for some odd reason, avoided jail time after pleading guilty to first-degree criminal mistreatment. The reason this is hard to believe is because the child was bleeding for two hours after the procedure before authorities were contacted.
The 30-year-old mother of four must also undergo mental health treatment after Multnomah County Circuit Judge Eric Bergstrom told her ‘the reality is you love your children and had absolutely no intent to harm your child’.
Sadly there was another child, 13-year-old boy, who watched his mother perform this invasive surgery with pliers and a box cutter. The young baby was in intense pain and the bleeding was uncontrollable.
Luckily, after Peterson took the initiative to call for help, her baby boy has made a full recovery since being in Intensive Care. All four children are now in the hands of social workers and her mental health is being investigated.
Her bail was set at $550,000 but following a hearing was reduced to $5,000 and she was released from jail.
This article struck me as odd, and after reading it, my opinion hasn’t changed. Here is some of the article as posted on Dailymail -
The five teenage girls might look like they’re in a normal class, eagerly reading their textbooks and answering their teacher’s questions diligently.
But the textbooks are Bibles and the girls all have crosses instead of protractors, as they train to become exorcists – real exorcists who fight demons, curses and evil spells.
‘People do look a bit surprised when I arrive,’ admits graduate exorcist Brynne Larson. ‘When people call for an exorcist, they don’t picture a 16-year-old high school girl.’
Bible and cross: Savannah Shurkenback, 19, right, and Brynne Larson, 16, are two teenage exorcists who fight demons, curses and evil spells
But Brynne, from Phoenix, Arizona, is one of a new breed of qualified teenage demon slayers, who answered a call when the Church made the admission of there being a worldwide exorcist shortage.
But despite drastic efforts, supply has still not met demand for the controversial ceremony.
The Vatican’s chief exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth, 85, has revealed that he alone has dealt with 70,000 cases of demonic possession.
So if the forces of darkness start getting the upper hand, who should you call? Evangelist Reverend Bob Larson of Spiritual Freedom Churches International – and his remarkable school for exorcists.
‘Think of it more of an exorcist franchise,’ Rev Larson tells MailOnline exclusively.
‘The Church just can’t keep up with demand. But I have 100 teams of trained exorcists working all over the world, and outbreaks of demonic possession are getting out of control.
‘Our phone lines are ringing constantly – we receive up to 1,000 individual requests monthly, and we travel to countries like Africa, Ukraine, England and even Australia.’
But while his teams include exorcists aged up to 70, one group of his protégées are causing waves in the religious community. They are teenage girls.
Savannah Scherkenback, 19, and her sister Tess, 16, are Rev Larson’s latest graduates from his school for exorcists.
‘We have found that our female, teenage exorcists are particularly effective at curing the possessed,’ says Rev Larson, whose daughter Brynne is a supernaturally talented exorcist.
In Case you think you’re possessed, here are the 5 signs:
‘FIVE SIGNS OF POSSESSION’
- Feeling suicidal/ self harming
‘Many of the demons we encounter encourage people to hurt themselves,’ says Rev Larson. ‘They can drive you to suicide if they’re not dealt with.
- Becoming sensitive to religious material
‘The possessed will vomit if they go to a church. They will scream if they come into contact with holy water,’ says Rev Larson. The possessed will reportedly not be able to look at statues of Christ.
- Harbouring feelings of murder
Have you suddenly started to feel intense hatred towards colleagues or even family members? It may be a demon inside of you, says Rev Larson. ‘One of the most common demons is called “murder”.’
- Sickness/ Tiredness
Having a demon within you is a tiring game. Sleeplessness, anxiety and headaches are common complaints, along with less subtle symptoms like levitation and a 360-degree spinning head.
- Speaking in a foreign tongue
The possessed have been known to suddenly start speaking in Latin, Spanish, or even Italian, explains Rev Larson. Watch out for a deepening voice too, he says. ‘I’ve heard that voice all too often. It’s deep and growling.’
LETTERS & EMAILS FROM CLIENTS
Below is a selection of genuine calls for help sent to Reverend Bob Larson:
- ‘My life is a living hell. I practice the occult every night with Lucifer. I signed a pact in my blood and buried it with real human bones. My fingers make the shape of claws. I wake up at night growling. I throw up if I go to church. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!’ (‘Lori’)
- ‘I grew up in Satanism. I have a multitude of physical and sexual abuse. I want to die. Can you help me?’ (Name withheld)
- ‘I have suicidal thoughts and dreams of hurting others. I am fighting something deep within me. Your show forced me to look at the possibility of having a demon inside me.’ (‘Adam’)
- ‘I have tried to kill myself and have homicidal thoughts. I even made a list of people I want to kill. I really need some answers.’ (‘Laura’)
This article just goes to show that some people will stand by what they believe regardless of the changes that are taking place around them. Many of these people feel it’s best to stand by your beliefs because that’s the proof that you have faith. In my opinion, that doesn’t make sense. If there are so many people who are “religious” that are able to allow this, why can’t you? Religion is so interpretive, and you may choose to believe however you want.
On the other hand, the gays can not choose to be straight. Some people may feel this is possible, but all it is, is pretending. Most gay people are fairly good at it, considering they’ve had to put on an act for so many years. Well, practice makes perfect. Unhappy, but perfect
Here is some of the article:
“HUDSON, New York (Reuters) - A town clerk in western New York has resigned to avoid being forced to sign marriage licenses for gay and lesbian couples, citing religious objections to same-sex marriage.
Laura Fotusky, the town clerk in Barker, New York, said in her resignation letter that she will step down on July 21, three days before New York becomes the sixth and largest state to allow gay nuptials.
Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the same sex marriage law last month after the bill narrowly passed the Republican-led state Senate. Its approval in New York is seen as a catalyst for gay marriage elsewhere as well as helping push the issue to the forefront nationally ahead of the 2012 elections.
Much of the debate in New York focused on the scope of protections for those opposed to same-sex marriage. The new law exempts religious groups from performing same-sex marriages but does not extend those protections to individuals, including government employees.
Fotusky was not immediately available for comment, but in her letter, dated July 11, she said she believes the Bible takes precedence over man-made laws.
The Bible clearly teaches that God created marriage between male and female as a divine gift that preserves families and cultures. Since I love and follow Him, I cannot put my signature on something that is against God, she wrote.
I would be compromising my moral conscience if I participated in the licensing procedure, she wrote.”
