Pastor Claims Gay People Are Possessed By “Fart Demons” That Can Drive Pigs To Suicide

maxresdefaultJust when we thought we’d heard it all, this guy opened his mouth.

Bert Farias (pictured), founder of Holy Fire Ministries, claims to know the “raw, naked truth” about why people are gay: They are possessed by “fart demons.” Yes, fart demons.

Oh, but it gets better.

Farias also claims that in choosing to be gay, a person chooses to engage in “unclean demonic practices.” Once that happens, they become possessed by “putrid-smelling” demons so stinky they can drive pigs to suicide.

In an interview with Charisma magazine, Farias begged gay people to “not get upset with me” as he explained his groundbreaking new theory.

“[You] will see that I am actually trying to help you,” he assured them.

He continued: “Homosexuality is actually a demon spirit. It is such a putrid smelling demon that other demons don’t even like to hang around it.”

He then went on to recount a story from the Bible to illustrate his fascinating point:

island-routes-caribbean“There is an account in the Bible where Jesus casts out 2,000 demons out of a man. The demons came out screaming and begged Jesus to send them into the pigs. The pigs didn’t want them, so they ran down a steep hill and were drowned in the sea.”

“Pigs have more sense than some humans,” he added. “People embrace homosexual demons, but the pigs would rather die than be possessed with demons.”

And how exactly does Farias know all this?

One of God’s prophets personally phoned to let him know.

“A genuine prophet of God told me that the Lord allowed him to smell this demon spirit, and he got sick to his stomach,” he said.

Farias also warned that the growing acceptance of homosexuality in the United States is a sign from the man upstairs that our society is in “the last stages of decay” and that there will be severe “destructive physical, emotional, and spiritual consequences.”

In conclusion, Farias said: “Our culture’s acceptance and celebration of gay behavior will never make it right. Wrong is wrong no matter how many people are for it. And right is right no matter how many people are against it.

Homosexuality is not new. It’s been around for thousands of years. It’s as old as the devil himself.”

      Interesting. My doctors said I have colitis, but apparently this man seems to know more than anyone in the scientific field.

      I’m so over listening to and fighting against the insane religious zealots. But I will turn a blind eye if someone wants to take them out.

      In all that lunacy, he did manage to get one thing right: “Wrong is wrong no matter how many people are for it. And right is right no matter how many people are against it.” He’s just grossly (in more ways than one) wrong about which is which.

      @Nowuvedoneit: Doesn’t he, though.

      This man is a “pastor”.
      I would expect him to know his bible better then that.

      The pigs didn’t run into the sea to escape being possessed.
      Jesus allowed the demons to possess the pigs and the
      demons drove the pigs into the sea.

      Now, this story – and the story about about the pigs – is a very good illustration as to why so many believe that purveyors of religion are demented and the bible is lunacy.

      He’s on to us Guy’s! The jig is up and he must be destroyed before people start to believe him!

      Man is clearly disturbed and because he believes the voices in his head are God he must be a prophet and not actually insane.

      How has this guy (and others like him) avoided being involuntarily committed to a mental institution? There is a breakdown in the system somewhere. I will gladly pay more in taxes for him to get the help he needs. It is our social responsibility after all.

      As a kid I was always puzzled by that Bible passage (Matthew 8:31) because – as you can see from that cute photo – PIGS CAN SWIM!

      Plus, why were there so many pigs in a Jewish area anyway? It just didn’t make sense.

      @Ben Dover Jesus wasn’t in a Jewish area when he healed the man possessed by demons. But Matthew was written for the Jewish converts; so having the demons cast into an “unclean” animal just made sense.

      As a liberal Christian I am amazed at the amount of time these guys (and they are all guys…) waste worrying about morality. Aren’t there a bunch of kids in crisis at our border? Is everyone in our nation being fed and have jobs and healthcare? Do we love our neighbors as ourselves? Seems to me that Jesus (if he were here now) would be more worried about those issues. Also, we are the very people he would be having dinner with.

      Of course he might want to sit upwind from me tonight….I had Mexican for dinner and the “fart demons” are working overtime.

      Clearly Farias has never visited a farm or he would know that male pigs sometimes try to mate with other male pigs.

      This guy is a jerk, but on reading his real article, he never once mentioned “Fart Demon”. If you are going to sensationalize this you don’t need to put words in his mouth, he is perfectly capable of demonstrating his “douchiness” himself. No need to lie.

      Is he advocating holy butt plugs for all to keep the fart demons in? I see marketing potential at the church gift shops and gay conversion camps.

      @Ben Dover: Did the fart demons run down the hill and drown themselves? Or was it the pigs? Or the guys the fart demons were expelled from? “They” would modify pigs so the pigs committed suicide which I’m pretty sure is frowned upon in the bible.

      It’s getting to the point where I can’t distinguish between the actual rightwing nuts and the parodies of them. How can you satirize such people when they’re already so already so absurd and over-the-top to begin with. Someone needs to put the brakes on the crazy train, it’s outta control.
