"Christian Pastors" Want To Stone Gays At The Rose Bowl Parade

A pair of Christian pastors really espoused the spirit of baby Jesus during a recent radio broadcast in which they blasted the Rose Bowl Parade float that saw the marriage of a loving gay couple. Instead of the float all about love, the pastors told listeners they have a better idea for a Rose Bowl Parade theme.

Right Wing Watch goes further:

Pastors Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner of Generations Radio were upset about a float at the Rose Bowl parade that included a married gay couple which, despite nasty attacks from anti-gay activists, went off without incident (and even won an award). Buehner was perplexed by the fact that the AIDS Healthcare Foundation sponsored the float, saying that its “pro-homosexual propaganda” would “spread AIDS.” He added: “I wonder what the Rose Bowl parade would do if we had the stoning of a homosexual along the parade just as an expression of free speech and all that.”

Amazing to me how much hate there is in the world.

Life be in it.

As we all know (but evidently, some maybe don't...), the stoning of a gay man (or any other human being) at whatever event it might try to occur would be MUCH more than any expression of free speech. What type of ignorance, not to mention hatred, does it take to make a comment such as this? And in public, no less. And he can say all day long until he's blue in the face that he says this & other similarly-toned statements out of Christian "love" of the sinner but not the sin... But I don't care how you look at it - this is a statement that reeks of & is overflowing with HATE. People such as this don't deserve our attention, NOR a public forum or podium from which to address a crowd of people. They merely sling around their painfully old rhetoric that does nothing more than play on the fears & uncertainties of the naive, the uneducated, & the just plain stupid &/or hateful out there who know no better b/c they've never HAD to know any better (yet). It's easy to be hateful toward a particular type of person until such a person is close to you. And sure, there are those who STILL refuse to open their minds & hearts, but it's not quite as easy when it's mom, dad, brother, sister, best friend, & especially son or daughter.

Well, I don't know what the "Rose Bowl Parade" would do if the conducted a stoning - the parade not being a person any more than a corporation is - but I can speculate that the police and the DA would arrest and try those non-Christian bastards with murder.

How Christian.  Stone people and promote stupidity instead of love and acceptance.  Wait, isn't that what JESUS was all about?

I couldn't find Buenher on Facebook...but pay Swanson a visit....tell him what a fucked up individual he is...

Hmmm...clergymen advocating violence against a group of people they don't believe have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness??  I thought God said "Love Thy Neighbor", not 'stone those not bending to your will by way of personal interpretation of the Word".

I agree that its not worth listening to. But remember that all it takes for evil not to flourish is for one good man or woman to point it out. Also you need to keep your ears open for such unadulterated trash and fight them. Ignore them and they flourish.

This moron doesn't even know that the guarantees of free speech and expression ends when it involves physical harm to another individual!?

YES! My FIRST thought! That this disgusting slimebag can't tell the difference between "people doing something you don't agree with" & "encouraging everyone to physically hurt someone for doing something you don't agree with."

Then honey...my guess is you better put your wife and unruly children out there as well.......

Not even worth listening to the broadcast its just a waste of time to hear ignorance.

I agree 100%
