What Happens When A Lesbian Presents Herself To A Homophobic Church To Be Stoned?

ATLAH Missionary Church in Harlem, NYC made headlines in February for turning its oversized sidewalk sign into a not-very-Christian-like message of hate. "Jesus would stone homos," reads the sign before a list of the controversial Old Testament passages that some interpret as anti-gay. "Harlem is a homo free zone." 

Apparently the last part is less than accurate. Jennifer Louise Lopez, a lesbian who has somehow managed to infiltrate the "homo free zone" by living in the neighborhood, recently presented herself to ATLAH for her "Jesus-sanctioned" stoning. 

What happens next is unsurprising: the man who answers ATLAH's doors refuses to stone her, instead asking her to return tomorrow so someone else can do it. No word yet if Jennifer was able to pencil her stoning into her schedule the following day.

We need to clarify in a mass public way, whether "Christian" religious or not, that there is a huge distinction (!) between the Old and the New Testament! That's why one is 'old' and 'Old and the other NEW'! Christ came to put an end (!) to the primitive and hateful teachings, beliefs and practices of the past, of the old testament! The Christ message was NEW, and one of Universal LOVE. "Let he who is without sin, throw the first stone." "These things I do, so can you, and even greater works."

These type "churches" are blasphemous to use Jesus Christ's name and symbolic meaning in such distorted and hateful ways.

JAN SKY, if you are trying to apologize for the ignorance of main stream christianity, I forgive you. You are probably a really nice person, but please stand up for my rights too next time your not so liberal christian friends call me and my boyfriend a fag and then they go on their knees and pray before bed, hypocrites... 

Your old testament comment is not true at all, read the new testament again. In Timothy and Colossians it speaks about how crap woman are, and how they should never speak in public. And you cannot throw away the old testament for if you do goodbye ADAM and EVE and the whole creationist thing. Jesus is (allegedly) the son of god, and part of god. So everything god stands for in the old testament is the same in the new testament. I mention Adam and Eve as they are directly referenced in the New Testament.

“Let a woman learn in silence with all submissiveness. I permit no woman to teach or have authority over men; she is to keep silent. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. Yet woman will be saved through bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with modesty.” 1 Timothy 2:11-15

“Wives, be subject to your husband, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged. Slaves, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in singleness of heart, fearing the Lord.” Colossians 3:18-22

As I believe in love and freedom, all woman may speak up and reply to my reply, I will not play the shut up woman card from the bible.

Are we surprised how nancy the guy answering the door is? Apparently the building isn't even a homo-free zone, much less the neighborhood. Hey, Eddie Long, we've found a parish looking for a preacher like you!

Amazing - I love her guts :)
