Reverend Prefers Sloppy Civil Rights


Irritated by growing gay acceptance across America, Reverend Mark H. Creech penned an unsavory article arguing against including sexuality in anti-discrimination laws. Religion, of course, remains the most valuable social – and apparently essential – characteristic:

To contend homosexuality or other sexually alternative practices are as worthy of special protections as religion is like saying feculence is as important to one’s person or the culture as food.

Just as food is essential to the body, religion is indispensable to the soul. Only worship can satisfy the highest and noblest aspirations of human nature.

By contrast, homosexuality is neither immutable nor a necessity to life. At best, it is a negative drive with serious complications for both the individual and the culture.

This guy should team up with Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni. They’re soul mates!

      Why do we even care about what he has to say. I’m so used to hear the daily anti-gay comments from the religious nutjobs that I stopped caring a long time ago.

      Does “feculence” mean what I think it does. So he uses obscure words, I guess that makes him smart.
      Look I agree with Chanzelle. It’s a big world out there, nut cases all over the place, we could spend every moment collecting their nutty views. Let’s look at the trends not the few. On the whole glbt people are slowly gaining acceptance, at least in liberal democracies.

      Technically religion isn’t essential for life!

      Excellent point, Jaroslaw. In fact, given the number of bombings, shootings, beatings, stabbings, wars, beheadings, burnings, and arsons directly motivated by religion, I’d say it’s quite the opposite.

      Actually, feculence (ridding the body of impurities) IS just as important to one’s person as food (adding nutrients to the body).

      If this guy is going to stand behind his words, then he should never shit again as a protest against homosexuality. That’ll show us!
