Quote# 87239

[North Carolina Pastor instructs congregants to beat children who act outside of gender norms.]

So your little son starts to act a little girlish when he is four years old and instead of squashing that like a cockroach and saying, 'Man up, son, get that dress off you and get outside and dig a ditch, because that is what boys do,' you get out the camera and you start taking pictures of Johnny acting like a female and then you upload it to YouTube and everybody laughs about it and the next thing you know, this dude, this kid is acting out childhood fantasies that should have been squashed.

Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and crack that wrist. Man up. Give him a good punch. Ok? You are not going to act like that. You were made by God to be a male and you are going to be a male. And when your daughter starts acting too butch, you reign her in. And you say, 'Oh, no, sweetheart. You can play sports. Play them to the glory of God. But sometimes you are going to act like a girl and walk like a girl and talk like a girl and smell like a girl and that means you are going to be beautiful. You are going to be attractive. You are going to dress yourself up.'

How does one play sports to the glory of God?

Let me guess, advocating violence is not illegal as long as it's only against children?

You, sir, are a cunt and deserve to burn in the fiery pits of your own made up hell.

Go crawl back under the rock from whence you came, you sick sadistic fuck. "Pray away the gay" is already disgusting enough; we don't need your "beat away the gay."

The way he suggests talking to your daughter is massively paedophilic.

Also, I think this ought to qualify as incitement to violence. He should in jail for this.

Yeah, I remember my step dad taking that approach.
He ended up with a broken arm when I was 18 and to this day despise even talking to him.
All because I wasn't good at sports "like a real man"

Hasn't the world seen enough child abuse by the clergy already?

This is one of those issues that just annoys the fuck out of me. Nothing good comes from enforcing gender norms, especially violently, and all it'll do is make these kids grow up to hate themselves.

And for the record, I'm a 21 year old man who likes My Little Pony and doesn't watch sports. Wrestling aside, I am a fan of that.

Seems this putrid Pastor Harris clown isn't a real man...let's pound him!

To his credit, at least he isn't advocating clobbering the girls...but he's still a douche about it.

FROM THAT SAME ARTICLE...GOOD NEWS:

"Last week, however, Public Policy Polling reportedly released a new poll showing that support among North Carolinians for the proposed anti-gay amendment has dropped to a record low."

Do all this so you can make your children hate you so they will have nothing to do with you as adults, or possibly have them develop psychological problems. Because that's what Jesus wants.

Don't dig a ditch. Real men go down to the sea, make a little dam, dig hundreds of irrigation channels like the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and then throw rocks at it until it breaks.

Rinse and repeat all summer. Your kids will never be gay, they'll be too worried about whether Shelltown can survive the great dam disaster #436 to think about boys, girls or anything else.

Because there's no possible way a girl can be both beautiful and athletic at the same time....

Did I step into the 1950s?

@Roscaeux Its more than that, they have this ridiculous notion that most men nowadays want an uneducated servant instead of an intelligent, independent partner for a wife. This "tomboy" rubbish is asinine, most people would like a girl that you can actually hold a conversation with and has a lot of interest in the same things you do.

I saw this guy on The Young Turks, where they raised an interesting issue: it sounds like Pastor Harris isn't just speaking hypothetically. You've seen how many anti-gay crusaders turned out to be gay. I bet he received the same sort of beatings in his own childhood.

"So your little son starts to act a little girlish when he is four years old and instead of squashing that like a cockroach and saying, 'Man up, son, get that dress off you and get outside and dig a ditch, because that is what boys do,' you get out the camera and you start taking pictures of Johnny acting like a female and then you upload it to YouTube and everybody laughs about it and the next thing you know, this dude, this kid is acting out childhood fantasies that should have been squashed."

You know, for a while, all children of both genders were dressed as girls until they were about five or six, right? I don't think that caused the world came crashing to a halt, but I haven't checked recently.

"Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and crack that wrist. Man up. Give him a good punch. Ok? You are not going to act like that. You were made by God to be a male and you are going to be a male. And when your daughter starts acting too butch, you reign her in. And you say, 'Oh, no, sweetheart. You can play sports.

You are going to be attractive. You are going to dress yourself up.'"

Someone should try beating the fundy out of good Pastor Harris here.

My parents tried really hard to get me to wear dresses. It never worked very well. I just took them off at the first available moment and put the jeans and t-shirts back on. I never felt safe in them, I mean seriously, despite what the movies say, you can't survive a zombie attack in a dress.

You also can't change who a person is with threats of violence. If anything, this guy should be brought up on conspiracy to commit child abuse.

You go ahead and do that, Pastor Sean, and one day when your son has had enough of your shit, I hope he puts you through a fucking wall.
I am ever so glad my father wasn't a raving moron like this.

Child abuse for Jesus.

5/6/2012 7:33:06 AM

= POPE =

And when one of those fathers is arrested for child abuse, you will say, "He acted alone!" three times before the cock crows.

Your half-assed apology is inadequate, and a demonstrable lie.

Harris later told the Fayetteville Observer newspaper on Tuesday that he "would never ever advocate" hitting a child.

"If I had to say it again, I would say it differently, no doubt," Harris told the newspaper Tuesday. "Those weren't planned words, but what I do stand by is that the word of God makes it clear that effeminate behavior is ungodly. I'm not going to compromise on that."

So that's what comes out of your mouth when you don't edit yourself? Your alleged God allegedly knows what's in your heart, Bozo. You obviously don't take that very seriously.

So when some father is arrested for child abuse, are you going to pay for his lawyer too Sean?

5/6/2012 7:56:07 AM

Filin De Blanc

"effeminate behaviour is ungodly"

This is just fucking ridiculous. It's not even enough to not be gay; even if you're a huge admirer of women, God still hates you if you watch My Little Pony or like wearing pink. This ridiculous God can have my Ingrid Michaelson CDs when he pries them out of my cold, dead hands.

When I was a toddler, I wanted to grow up to be a yellow gas station. When I found out I couldn't do that, I wanted to grow up to be a horse. Meanwhile, moron, if you think a little boy who likes skirts and frilly blouses is going to grow up to be a sissy, I wish you to get crossways of the Ladies from Hell, which you deserve anyway for beating up tiny children.

Atheissimo, I, too, have fond memories of defending and rebuilding Shelltown, and not all of them from childhood.
