‘Douche du Jour’: Kansas Pastor Curtis Knapp Calls on US Government to Kill Gays and Lesbians
The Raw Story reports that pastor Curtis Knapp of the New Hope Baptist Church in Seneca delivered an hour-long sermon titled “The Curse of Homosexuality”, in which Knapp slams President Obama’s recent endorsement of gay marriage.
“Terrorists are dangerous, the economy is a real and present danger,” Knapp said in the Sunday sermon. “But there is simply nothing other than the holocaust of the unborn which imperils the safety of our country or places our people in jeopardy as does the leader of the Western world publicly raising his fist at the heavens and declaring that the bedrock institution of society, ordained of God and meant to be protected by the state, is little more than a convention of convenience with the children of Sodom to transform the meaning of something, which is precious to Jesus Christ, and a living picture of his love for the church into a legally protected justification for perversion and a vehicle of hatred aimed directly at that love.”
Quoting Leviticus 20, the biblical proscription on homosexuality that says “a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman… shall surely be put to death,” Knapp continues:
“They should be put to death. Oh, so you’re saying we should go out and start killing them, no?’ — I’m saying the government should. They won’t, but they should.”
“You say, ‘Oh, I can’t believe you, you’re horrible,” he continued. “You’re a backwards neanderthal of a person.’ Is that what you’re calling scripture? Is God a neanderthal, backwards in his morality? Is it His word or not? If it’s His word, he commanded it. It’s His idea, not mine. And I’m not ashamed of it.”

Knapp’s sermon is but the latest incidence of homophobic activity in churches being captured on audio or video recordings. Earlier today, Moral Low Ground posted this shocking video of an Indiana toddler singing “ain’t no homos gonna make it to heaven” in his church as the congregants gave him a raucous ovation.
Earlier this month, North Carolina pastor Sean Harris urged fathers of effeminate boys to beat the gay out them.
“Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and crack that wrist. Man up. Give him a good punch,” he told his congregants at Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville. “You are not going to act like that. You were made by God to be a male and you are going to be a male.”
And shortly after that video appeared, another was posted of North Carolina pastor Charles L. Worley calling for gays and lesbians to be imprisoned in concentration camps so they could all die off.
“Build a great, big, large fence– 150 or 100 mile long– put all the lesbians in there,” he said to his flock at the Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden. “Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals and have that fence electrified so they can’t get out… and you know what, in a few years, they’ll die out… do you know why? They can’t reproduce!”
