This post is about a Northern Irish protestant. They will kill people over whether a flag is flying or not. So, please do not expect anything resembling intelligence in the main protagonist's statements and certainly do no expect anything approaching Christian charity.
From THE BELFAST NEWSLETTER:
After reading a passage of the Bible on BBC’s Nolan radio show, Pastor Mark Bradfield of Bethel Baptist Church said: “God doesn’t hate homosexuals, he loves sinners and hates the sin. Whether you’re a homosexual, thief, murderer, liar, devil worshipper, God loves you.“
When questioned as to whether he equated being homosexual to worshipping the devil he said "yes." He said he believes homosexuality is wrong and accused gay people of hating God.
“Having spoken to a number of homosexual activists why is it that these souls that hate God so much that they’re willing to disobey his commandments, why do they want to get married in church?"
“It boggles my mind that there is so much fuss over the desires or the wants of 1.5 or 2 per cent of the population."
And that last sentence says it all. The bloke has absolutely no idea what Jesus Christ was on about. He's just about got his mind around the Old Testament idea of following rules but that is it. Everything after Deuteronomy might as well have not been written as far as this particular spokesman for god is concerned.
