Texas Mega-Church Rev.: “Homosexuality == Murder”

The Reverend Gary Simons of the High Point Church said no to hosting a funeral for Cecil Sinclair, a Navy veteran, but that’s not all he said:

The pastor said that he could imagine a similar situation involving a different sin. Perhaps a mother who is a member of the church loses a son who is a thief or murderer, Mr. Simons said. The church would surely volunteer to hold a service, he said.

“But I don’t think the mother would submit photos of her son murdering someone,” he said. “That’s a red light going off.”

Yeah, because being gay is the same as stealing or murder. Because Mr. Sinclair’s very existence deprived someone else of their property or life? I don’t understand the connection that Mr. Simons is trying to make unless he’s just demonstrating his immense bigotry and stupidity.

  3. I wonder if Jesus would even bother stepping one foot in this unholy church.
    Nah, I don’t wonder – I know he wouldn’t even consider it.
