Did A Texas Presbyterian Minister Rejecting Gay Ordination Have The Buttsecks?

Just because the Presbies voted to ordain sexy gay ministers doesn’t mean that every pastor has joined the love parade. Take the Senior Pastor Ronald Scates of Highland Park Presbyterian Church in Dallas. His church issued a letter to its 5,000 members saying, “While this change is deeply troubling, it does not change (Highland Park church). We have the freedom and the responsibility to continue upholding biblical standards for church officers.” But do those congregants know that their resilient pastor was once “taken into the world of homosexual sex and [has] witnessed the self-destructiveness that is rampant whenever we use our bodies contrary to the way God has made us”? And what does that even mean?

If you read all of Scates’ weird 2008 letter to The Dallas Voice, you realize that the man should hawk ex-gay summer camps for Exodus International: “There is a way out … a way back toward the center of God’s will … both for you and for me (because we’re both in the same sinful boat).” Umm… Ronnie, your church just decided that the way back toward God’s will is in that hell-bound sin-boat called the U.S.S. Buttsecks. Don’t resist… God hates a tease.

    Golly, I sure do hope they have dentists in Hell; his mouth desperately needs a makeover. It must be from the rust around the glory holes on those metal toilet stall dividers. They really need a dental dam dispenser at his favorite truck stop.

    Why is it his picture is reminding me of the scene in Raiders of the Lost Arc, where they open the arc.

    They’re doing a revival of “Phantom of the Opera” in Tex-ass with the original 1920’s silent movie cast. Guess who gets to play the lead?

    I wish someone would catch this man at a truck stop or bathhouse…The anti gay closet case media has been kinda dry these last few weeks..he’d be perfect.
