Unashamed, Pastor Uses Bible To Defend Call On Government To Kill Gays

Curtis Knapp, the Kansas pastor who Sunday called on the government to kill all gay people, and lamented that it would not, says he is not ashamed and just preaching scripture.

As The New Civil Rights Movement reported earlier today, Pastor Knapp on Sunday told parishioners at his New Hope Baptist Church in Seneca, Kansas, the government has the power to kill all gay people.

“You got a better idea? A better idea than God?,” Knapp asked. The sermon was titled, “Homosexuality and the Need for National Revival.”

“And should be put to death, that’s what happened in Israel, that’s why homosexuality wouldn’t have grown in Israel,” Pastor Knapp said on Sunday. “It tends to limit conversions, it tends to limit people coming out of the closet. ‘Oh, so you’re saying we should go out and start killing them?’ No, I’m saying the government should. They won’t, but they should. Say, ‘I can’t believe you, you’re horrible, you are a backwards Neanderthal of a person.’ Is that what they are calling scripture? Is God a Neanderthal backwards morality? Is this his word or not? If it’s his word, he commanded it. It’s his idea, not mine, and I’m not ashamed of it.”

This CNN video shows a local TV station, KTKA, interviewing Knapp, who says:

We punish pedophilia, we punish incest, we punish polygamy, and various things. it’s only homosexuality that is lifted out as an exception.

Clearly, Knapp is “correcting” that in his church.

Knapp adds, “My hope is for their salvation, not for their death.”

It’s time we get religious leaders to denounce these small town backwards extremists who are contributing to the emotional torture of LGBTQ children.

The church does not appear to have a website or its own Facebook page, but here’s their page at Sermon Audio.

"We punish pedophilia, we punish incest, we punish polygamy," This sounds like heterosexual problems to me. When we, as citizens break the law then we are punished under the same laws as everyone else. Equally I might add. Such a double standard in this country but for the record, there has been a breach in the judicial, executive, and legislative branches of our government. It happened in 2005 and has been covered up since that time. Kick that around the pulpit a few times and when LGBT arrives in Washington to take care of the real business of "we the people", ……l enough said until that time. Just buckle up.

What a jackhole preacher! Yes these holy rollers are coming out of the woodwork these days because their precious status quo is threatened as they see it. Guess he missed the whole "Thou Shalt Not Kill" commandment. The Bible says a lot of things that are nonsense and simply do not apply to modern society which thankfully has evolved since tribal times 2000 years ago. The Bible also says that slavery is ok and that if one is caught in the act of adultery or isn't a virgin when they are married (only women) they should be stoned to death. Nonsense. Jesus never said one word against homosexuality and he talked about a multitude of things. If this so called preacher has such an issue with gay people, as the statistics say most gay bashers are closet cases themselves and can't accept themselves. Case in point Marcus Bachman, Michelle Bachman's closeted gay husband running a clinic to try and "pray away the gay." Absolute nonsense. Thankfully these zealot bigoted preacher's voices are dying out and fading away as more and more acceptance of gay people sweeps the country and the country is waking up to equality for all. Amen and hallelujah to that!

Yes, if your god believes that homosexuals should be killed, he is a neanderthal. Thanks for pointing that out, Mr. Knapp.
