RE: NC Church Tries to Beat "Demons" Out of Gay Man
I can't watch the video now, but did this man approach the church for "help", as some people do? I once read a blog post from an openly gay man, who was also very religious who was basically begging not to be gay, as he felt it's "a sin" and said he would "give anything" to "be normal", which is a damn shame that you'd have to feel that way.

Regardless of that, it's mind boggling in this day and age that something like this even happens. In what realm of thought do you beat another person, so stop them being who they are? It's crazy.

There are more things in heaven and earth, 'murricans, than are dreamt of in your limited view of the world (which exists *outside* the borders of 'murrica)

I would settle for not having had the Abrahamic monotheistic vileness inflicted on the world.

Apparently someone found out he was gay, and told the pastor, who then attacked him at the service-- verbally, at first, for over two hours, as the guy tried to flee the church and was prevented from doing so by church members. That's why she has kidnapping charges against her, as well as assault. Angry

This makes me sooooo angry. I hope they throw her ass in jail. Goddamn these people. What the hell do they care what people do in the privacy of their bedrooms. What does it matter who people love. What happened to "judge not... " Oh, And why is this woman speaking up in church. That atheist guy with the bible quote on his truck needs to park it outside their church with "hypocrite" also painted on his truck.

The more charismatic / pentecostal-leaning compartments of fundamentalism are even more about groupthink and emotionally working people into a mob froth than religion is generally. I wasn't part of this kind of thing but had some contact with such folks. When you are convinced that X is evil and that all evil can be countered with "spiritual warfare" then you can easily see this sort of harassment as compassionate -- you are trying to "free" the person from a caul of blindness and bondage.

Of course, not incidentally, you are the heroic star of your own personal epic movie in the bargain.
