Quote# 76562

Two non-denominational Christian preachers calling for the repentance of gays attracted attention from hundreds of students on Tuesday, many of whom protested their presence.

Jim Deferio and his daughter Michelle, both from Syracuse, arrived on [SUNY Geneseo] campus shortly before noon and remained on the college green for over five hours: finally leaving at 5:30 p.m. Jim Deferio held a sign proclaiming that gays have been healed through faith and touted Web sites including exhomosexuals.com and hopeforhomosexuals.com.

Large numbers of students crowded around the demonstrators, in some cases insulting and denouncing their message. Many were offended by Jim Deferio's often inflammatory comments, such as his denial that there is a biological basis for homosexuality.

"All sex out of marriage is a sin," Deferio said. "Jesus defined marriage as between a man and a woman." He claimed that homosexuals are 40 times more likely than heterosexuals to molest children, and declared John Lennon an "evil person."

According to Michelle Deferio, she and her father are not affiliated with and do not receive any support from outside organizations, and have no political goal. They have held similar demonstrations at other SUNY campuses, including a Sept. 11 appearance at Brockport. She said that different cultures struggle with different issues related to the teachings of God, and that she and her father focus on sexual immorality when at college campuses because it is most relevant for that audience. "I want people to have a real relationship with God," she said.

"Jesus defined marriage as between a man and a woman."

If sex outside marriage is a sin, then let gay people get married to those of their choice. No problem then.

As to the paedophilia claim, it is outrageously lying and dishonest. The stats are there for those with honesty enough to interpret.

Frankly I am not surprised to read that preacher chappies and other deniers of gay rights are often enough found flagrante delicto with another of his own gender. It seems to be par for the course for those so anti-gay. They are projecting something that they cannot face up to in themselves and therefore they demonize others to assuage their troubled inner-selves. It's akin to scapegoating.

Wy do University authorities allow such intrusions? They must be a great distraction to students.

What the heck does John Lennon have to do with gay marriages?

Why do these people care so much what other people do with their lives? Get a life on your own instead.
Don't like homosexual marriages? Don't have one then.

Can they provide scientific evidence for a homosexual being thoroughly and lastingly cured of his/her sexual orientation?

If you hold up signs with insulting and denouncing messages, you have to be prepared to take a bit of insults and denounciations in return.
How did John Lennon end up in the mix?

Sin is an arbitrary and outdated concept, which only has merit if you believe in it. Sex outside of marriages and sex with people of the same gender are both perfectly legal in almost all western countries.

Christians are 40 times more likely to be full of shit than Americans.

The Web has replaced the Bible as the most important wellspring of Jesus truth. Weblical scriptures are becoming more and more prominent and reflect God's deep love of people whose limbs suffer from Satanic impurities, such as the impurity of unequal length. God deplores a situation where a foot is a foot less than the other foot.

God's hatred of homosexuals stems from the fact that He has a penis but nowhere to put it. He did at one time think of creating a giant vagina, but it would have to be larger than a galaxy. And He didn't want nosy astronomers peeking on His love life. Therefore, the thought that some men were choosing to put their penises somewhere other than a vagina made God jealous, as usual.

If you "want people to have a real relationship with God," why are you going around portraying him/her/it as a nasty, intolerant dickhead? Seems rather self-defeating.

Jesus defined marriage as between a man and a woman.

Jesus (according to the Bible anyway) was celibate. If we buy the whole god=Jesus thing then god allowed all sorts of marriages the most common of which is mentioned in the Bible is a polygynous marriage as in NOT one man, one woman but one man, MANY women. And he never said anything against gay marriage, just a passing comment about gay sex which he put in the same category as eating shrimp and wearing mixed fabrics.

He claimed that homosexuals are 40 times more likely than heterosexuals to molest children

I can make up bullshit statistics too if I'm allowed to pull them from my ass. Hey, did you know that Christians are 98% likely to bugger little boys and 87% likely to steal candy from babies?

She said that different cultures struggle with different issues related to the teachings of God, and that she and her father focus on sexual immorality when at college campuses because it is most relevant for that audience. "I want people to have a real relationship with God," she said.

As if they need to believe that there's some celestial peeping tom who watches them shower, have sex, and masturbate. And for what? So they can become just as insecure and repressed as these preachers?

You'd think, if that was the case, that I would have been laid WAY BEFORE the age of 26

Hmm... Phelps wannabes. Don't see that very often.

Jesus defined marriage as between a man and a woman.

Which bible book, chapter, and verse? Oh wait, you're talking about Republican Jesus, aren't you?

"I want people to have a real relationship with God,"

Translation: "I want people to hate the same people I hate."

The really sad thing is that she's sincere in her desire to get people to God, but she's doing it in exactly the wrong way: proclaiming the Bible as the definite authority to people who don't necessarily believe that's so.

Also, by using it to claim BS statistics, of course. ;)

No matter how much you wish it were true, a lie is still a lie, Jimmy, and your Bible has a commandment against lying.

"... and declared John Lennon an 'evil person.'"

Yeah, you worship a stalker, genocidal serial killer of a fucking monster, and call Lennon, a man who promoted peace on earth, evil?
Fuck you. And your sister. And your mother. And your father.
Fuck all of you, hard, in the ass, with a splintery pole. With no lubrication. Oh, and dripping with battery acid.

Real relationships require real people. Having a relationship with an imaginary being is called something else.

"I want people to have a real relationship with God,"

Which is very nice, but one questions her methods if she believes the way to get me to come to God is to offend me.

Where did Jesus define it that way? Ever read your Bible? All sex outside marriage is a sin, but that's to you. Not all of us are bound that way. How about citation for the child molestation?

How about you focus on your own damn lives, shitheads, and stay the Hell out of what I choose to do with mine. It's none of your f*cking business with whom I go to bed, okay?

SUNY Geneseo and SUNY Brockport (which I attended) were/are two of the party schools in the SUNY system. Back in my days they would have been laughed off campus.
