Tennessee Pastor Says God Punishes Gay Men By Making Them “Effeminate” While Bathed In Rainbow Light

Gay men, take heed! God is punishing you by making you “effeminate.” And lesbians, don’t think you’re off the hook. He’s making you “mannish.” At least according Tennessee pastor Larry Tomczak.

“I have watched people go into a lifestyle, and all of a sudden… a man starts to become very effeminate — mannerisms, speech. I’ve seen the reverse, I’ve seen the same thing with women [who] start becoming mannish,” the good pastor proclaims in a new video from one of his sermons obtained by Right Wing Watch. Ironically, he is bathed in rainbow light as the shit flies from his mouth.

“What’s going on?” Tomczak asks from the pulpit. “They’re taking in their bodies a penalty for deviating from God’s loving design and plan!”

The self-proclaimed “Christian leader, author and cultural communicator” also said that gays have “higher rates of psychiatric illnesses” and on average have “shorter life spans – up to 20 years less.”

We’re going to go out on a limb and say that the only person suffering from a psychiatric illness is Tomczak.

It should be noted that last year the Enjoying Guy/Girl Relationships author was accused of sexually abusing a woman for 25 years, beginning when she was just a child. At the same time, he was also sued for allegedly covering up sexual abuse at a Christian school in Maryland.

Watch the good pastor spew his verbal diarrhea below.

    Oh queerty, please don’t make it seem as though “fem” hating is some new up rising with pastor larry leading the charge.

    The gays have managed this type of self hate all on our own. It’s similar to the light skin dark skin dysfunction with in the African American community.

    It’s the Str8 acting vs fem in this community. So…no story here really. Right gays? lol

    Depending on the culture surrounding you your “femininity” might just be a sign of maturity, intelligence or individuality.

    The most effective answer I can give on how to stop being effeminate without knowing your specific situation is “do what they do”.

    Here they come…….

    Why even continue to show venom-spewing people and situations such as this?

    Do as “The Secret” and “Law Of Attraction” philosophies suggest: show, immerse in, be and include everything in life you would have as your reality, and therefore stop poisoning us with this toxic bull!

    I can assure this asshole that a vast majority of we gay MEN are not effeminate in any way. What he needs is to have one of us gay MEN, kick his butt!! Bet you he would not be singing his sick song after that. But, seriously, this man is so far out, it really is hardly worth commenting on. Considering his background of sexual abuse and cover ups, I wonder how he got his job, and why/how he is keeping it as a minister.

    @B Damion: Now now Damion. You know what happens when you forget to take your medication. Deeeeeeep Breaths…… Ohm….. Now that’s better isn’t it? Just remember, we are all on the same side.

    The thing is he is right about the life expectancy and mental health issues. The problem is that he is part of the reson why. The hate he and others spew is why LGBT young people growing up hearing this end up internalising it and exhibiting depression and other mental health issues.

    This then also feeds into the lower life expectancy. LGBT people all too often commit suicide when young which skews the data, the high rates of undetected HIV in the gay community also contributes to LGBT people dying young and if the data set is including the height of the AIDs epidemic then that will skew the life expectancy hugely.

    It is useful to have a discussion about these things but people such as this make it far more difficult to do so.

    @Goforit…..yes. I feel much better now. Thank you. I gotta remember to keep my Med’s close.

    He obviously does NOT watch the Spike Channel and MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fights. Even the Fox Sports Channel has two and three hour length features (late at night even) of those fights featuring many of our young daugh….er, ummm, younger generation gay men.

    Well, I guess someone has to step into the shoes of the soon (hopefully) to be gone Pat Robertson and Jiminey Swaggart.

    So then what did God punish Senator Lindsay Graham for?

  • corey

    Damn. Am I not faggy enough? I never got the Rainbow Disco Ball thingy. It would be like the character in Charlie Brown followed round by a dusk ball or something, but way better and cleaner and a nifty way to find your keys if you dropped them,

    Really? I’m professional, look like a skin head head, and a power bottom. But, I look like a skin-head, athletic, and masculine. This author is so stereotypical! The gay community is much more diverse than this ‘professional’ realizes, or apparently, wants to admit.

    “They’re taking in their bodies a penalty for deviating”. …God! That’s so hot! I’m joining this parish today.
