Quote# 89019

Police in Grand Rapids, Michigan say that there was nothing they could do after Bible-preaching protesters threatened to rape and murder pro-LGBT activists at a “Gay Day” event over the weekend.

In a video posted to YouTube, several protesters with Bibles can be seen shouting at a woman celebrating in the inaugural “Gay Day” celebration, an event organized by the human rights group Tolerance, Equality and Awareness Movement (TEAM) to showcase the community’s diversity.

“Back in the day there was no free power, there was no going to the mall,” one protester tells the woman. “There was, ‘sit your ass in this house until I bring my ass home.’”

“And if your ass get to going out there like you said, guess what?” a second protester adds. “You get raped. And that’s what’s going to happen to you. … Keep your pussy clean, that’s all you need to do. Do you understand?”

After one man claims, “the Lord said that,” the woman challenges him to find the corresponding Bible verse.

He responds with Isaiah 13: “Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.”

“What does ‘ravished’ mean? It means, we going to rape your ass,” the protester explains. “And I’m going to have fun doing that shit. And you going to like that. I promise you.”

After briefly arguing that he is misinterpreting the Bible, the woman observes, “Anything I say, you say it doesn’t matter.”

“It’s going to matter right now,” the man shoots back. “It’s going to matter when your clothes off and I’m going inside of you repeatedly. That’s when it’s going to matter. Because you going to enjoy yourself.”

. . . WWMT reported that the men were part of a Christian black supremacist group called the Black Hebrew Israelites. According to the South Poverty Law Center, the quickly spreading movement preaches “a frightening, racist theology that says Jesus Christ is returning soon to kill or enslave white people, Jews, homosexuals, and others.”

Certain cultures practice “corrective rape” to “correct” the sexual orientation of Lesbian women.

Wow. Just... holy shit? Isn't saying you're going to rape someone considered... I don't know... criminal?

How in the hell is this not an actionable threat? It seems pretty clear that he's entirely serious.

Where is Lorena Bobbitt when we need her?

The Vikings have much to learn about raping and pillaging from their Christian counterparts in modern times.

Isn't threatening someone assault? Prosecute those making the threats and the police who ignored it.

Raping a lesbian is not under any circumstances going to end her lesbianism. It's just going to make her hate you. You guys don't think much do you?

Are you seriously telling me police were powerless to make arrests with that sick fucker shouting threats in public with witnesses?

Dying in fire is too good for this guy. I hope his blood is slowly substituted with acid.

These people need to be executed. They are clearly a real danger to women.

So much for Bible and Christian morality. Fucking disgusting

8/29/2012 10:59:54 AM


How the hell can the police claim that there's "nothing they could do"?! Idiots! I hope everyone was okay at that event. :/

Never mind arming bears... lets arm lesbians.
Seriously, this monster stood up and promised to rape a bunch of women just because a fairy tale praises rape.

And yeah... Judaism and christianity both need to clean up the bible, and remove those verses which praise rape, incest, murder, and genocide.

Welcome to Dumfuckistan!

Enjoy your stay among the dumbest of the dumb! Medical cost to restore normal health after a visit must be carried by the patient as the warning signals were loud and clear before you entered the country!

Nothing you can do, cops? Really? And here I thought your job was to keep the peace.

I expect this kind of shit from fundies. Not from cops.

8/29/2012 1:26:26 PM

Oh My Dog!

Couldn't this be considered a type of terrorism? Any act that is done to cause terror can be considered terrorism. Couldn't the police get them on this?

If not, Michigan needs to change it's laws to include this definition.

Street Sharks

I knew this was the BHI before I even finished the quote. We have lots of them here in in NYC. They stand on the street corners yelling at white people, that is generally their schtick. If you are a white guy who happens to walk down the street past them, they will yell at you and tell you that they will kill you and put your sisters, wife, daughter, etc into sexual slavery. Sometimes they will have white baby dolls that they will throw at the ground and then stomp on, promising that this is exactly what they will do to actual white infants when the day comes.

And btw, this really isn't a "Christian" thing or an "anti-gay" thing. He is saying this to the woman because she is white.

So . . . who says we should introduce them to Christian Identity Ministries and the like?
