We Know Lou Engle Is a Jesus-Crazed Bigot. But Does He Have the Ear of the GOP?


We’re still trying to figure out just how intertwined Lou Engle, the self-professed “visionary” behind prayer group TheCall (one word!), is with leading conservatives inside the GOP, but Alternet spotted him with the Family Research Council and Mike Huckabee and Newt Gingrich, so there’s some connection — at least as much as Barack Obama has with Rick Warren. But Engle, who supported Prop 8 and asked followers to pray and fast to defeat marriage in Maine, now finds himself in the Absolute Nutjob category, a special place usually reserved for folks like Patricia and Kelvin Mckinney, who perform exorcisms on gay demons. Fitting, then, that Engle also knows a thing or two about gay demons, as he reveals in this Sept. 25, 2007, sermon.

    Lounatic Engle (that one came REAL easy!) has 5 sons
    and 2 daughters. Someone please identify the Gay one….

  • REBELComx

    It’s probably Lou.

  • Bill

    Does this dude drink a frosty glass of crazy EVERY morning?

  • Jo

    Good grief. This man is two hundred buckets of crazy.

    I think his son is making excuses. He wanted to live in that district. He’s secretly curious. Soon enough, he’ll be experimenting. And I can’t wait for his father to find out.

    If it was only a few nutbags like Lounatic it would be great for a bunch ‘o ha ha’s for us Gays to laugh at this chucklehead. However when so called leaders of the repugnatican party actually meet with him that you realize how freakin scary it actually is. Was on one of the other current threads posting with schultkitz about how these nutbags wax nostalgic about how “wonderful” things were in the 1950’s on tv and how crappy actual real life was and back then the whole country was ascared of the “commies” and how they were going to “infiltrate” the famlies in the US and “change” everything. And how bad it would be for America. Guess what?? The Gays are their 2009 version of the “commies”. They used the word “commies” to instill fear, raise money, and further their agenda. They have simply replaced “commie” with “Gay”……………….

    He must be crazy if he actually believed his son wanted to move to the Castro to pray for the gays there.

  • Schteve

    Or I should say, praying isn’t the only thing his son would be doing on his knees there.
