The Misunderstood Swastika

Homosexuality and the Highly Misunderstood Bible

This Tennessee pastor was in the news recently spewing ignorance of the Bible from the pulpit that is commonly found in rural, bigoted, racist, white America. He states, and I quote: "God has instilled the power of civil government to send the police in 2019 out to the LGBT freaks and arrest them and have … Continue reading Homosexuality and the Highly Misunderstood Bible
