Assaulting gays for Jesus

Well, this one's giving a new meaning to the phrase bully pulpit. A pastor has been caught instructing his flock to beat up a gay couple in the parking lot of the church. And the flock o' Christians obediently did what they were told.

Why? Because Luke says Jesus said so:
If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. - Luke 14:26
OK, what does this have to do with hating your parents or children?

Jerry Pittman Jr. is the son of the pastor Jerry Pittman. He was one of  'em gays.

A Christian told his people to beat up his son?

Some days things are harder for me to comprehend than usual.

Just look at it as one of many, many signs that the need for religion in the 21st century is long outdated.
