North Carolina Pastor Encourages Parents to Use Violence on Effeminate Children

“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. Ok? 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.”

Preacher Sean Harris told dads to make sure their little girls don’t get “too butch” and to dress them up and perfume them “like girls” and make them objects of attraction. No doubt, the little ladies should be properly dressed as well.

Forbes offers a great observation in North Carolina Pastor Sean Harris Urges Parents To ‘Man Up’ And ‘Punch’ Effeminate Children

“It’s hardly surprising that the ugly rant of Pastor Sean Harris, the senior pastor at Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville, is going viral online.

“The wonderful thing about the combination of the internet and free speech is that when someone says something really ugly and horrifying, their words are called out. We don’t need to clamp down on speech like this through any legal means. The best disinfectant is sunlight, as the saying goes, and social media is the best sunlight we have when it comes to hateful speech.

“These days, people can’t simply preach to the choir, as it were. The whole world is right there listening on YouTube and passing it around Facebook and Twitter. Pretty soon your violent sermon is being mocked and scorned across the digital empire. Good thing, too, because Harris’s words deserve condemnation…”

An interesting point of view was expressed recently in the New York Times, Homophobic? Maybe You’re Gay:

“…some who oppose homosexuality are likely to be individuals struggling against parts of themselves, having themselves been victims of oppression and lack of acceptance. The costs are great, not only for the targets of anti-gay efforts but also often for the perpetrators…”

Might that tell us something about Pastor Sean Harris? Will he become #16 on Top 15 Anti-Gay Activists Caught Being Gay
