“I’m organizing a public stoning of gays and lesbians. Not, real stones but stones of Tennessee Laws. based on my interpretation of the Bible. God told me that he wanted this to happen.

Look at my kindly southern smile – it disappears when homosexuals decide to commit and marry.   I think it is right to to interpret 3,500 year old Scripture into today’s modern scientific community.

It doesn’t matter to Mark Pody and Mae Beaver that trying to reverse marriage for gays and lesbians would cost the state $8 billion annually.  These are negative UN-Christians being filled with hate.  Jesus never mentioned homosexuality – but you can go back 3,500 years ago to Leviticus.  In this ancient book homosexuality is an abomination, but so it divorce, women not virgins before marriage, eating pork, laying with a menstruating woman, etc. etc.

Why doesn’t Mark Body and Mae Beaver concentrate on Jesus actually did say or command?

Matthew 25:35 

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,

Isaiah 58:10

If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday.

James 2:14-18 

What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.

Proverbs 28:27 

Whoever gives to the poor will not want, but he who hides his eyes will get many a curse.

Luke 3:11

And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.”

1 John 3:17-18

But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.

I would suggest these two people read the Story of the Good Samaritan, where Jesus points out that no one should be discriminated upon, but rather judged by his or her actions of love.

These two political representative should be spending their extra ‘hateful energies’ on working at food banks, etc. etc.

God is love. (John 1).    And finally more words of Jesus – “Do not judge.”   “Love your neighbour.”
