Anderson Cooper Asks Baptist Leader About His Gay Marriage Linked To N. Korea Nuclear War Claim

Anderson Cooper talked with Southern Baptist Convention president Fred Luter last night about his comments linking same-sex marriage and gays in the Boy Scouts to North Korea’s threat to start a nuclear war with the U.S.

Luter, who represents 16 million Americans, had said:

“I would not be surprised that at the time when we are debating same-sex marriage, at a time when we are debating whether or not we should have gays leading the Boy Scout movement, I don’t think it’s just a coincidence that we have a mad man in Asia who is saying some of the things that he’s saying.”

But last night Luter nonchalantly tried to wiggle out of his words by claiming he was referring to other things.

Fred Luter’s lack of remorse is concerning, as was his lack of apology, and lack of understand the hurt and harm his words caused.

Luter literally blamed gay people and even straight allies who are discussing same-sex marriage and allowing gay people to join the Boy Scouts for inciting, for causing the leader of North Korea to threaten to start what would be a nuclear war — and World War III.

Pity he cannot see how harmful, vile, ugly, evil, and offensive his words were.

Luter says that a Supreme Court decision supporting same-sex marriage ultimately would lead to churches being forced to marry same-sex couples. When Anderson Cooper corrects him, he says, “not now Anderson, but I promise you brother, it’s gonna happen.”

Luter, thanks to Anderson Cooper, ultimately says his words linking nuclear war to gays were misunderstood.

No, Pastor Luter, we understood your words loud and clear. And no God I know is proud of you for them.

These evangelicals are scared shitless of everything under the sun. Frankly, they behave exactly like they have always accused gay men of acting: like sissies! What gay man would be attracted to Luter's ugly puss, anyway, unless he was after his money. And you know he has plenty of that! Who benefits from the fortunes Luter's organization takes in? The homeless? The hungry? Or is he saving up to build another monstrosity of a church that will cost millions?

The Republicans and evangelicals who make such ridiculous statements, blaming LGBT for every misfortune that happens to our country, are decidedly suicidal. It's as though they want these things to happen to America. If they don't have anyone to judge, what the hell are they going to do with themselves? I'm telling you, Luter and gang, Judgment Day is right around the corner and you and the others who hate gays (don't even deny it. Your little ditty, "Love the sinner, hate the sin." is pure bullshit). You just can't grasp that gay people have been around for many centuries and that they will always be around because it's bloody science, you dolts! I hope they start taxing your organizations and keep doing so until you take your misrepresentation of Jesus Christ back into your church and out of our government, and keep it there. Hate us all you want, I don't give a damn and neither to the rest of the LGBT community. We're not overly fond of you and, since we don't view Jesus Christ with the same dark view as you do, we will be more likely to find ourselves at His right hand when we die than any of you sleazy, slimy, bigoted, hate-filled losers. The meek shall inherit the earth. You are not meek. You're a liar and a fraud.
