Repent Amarillo – Faith or Fear‏

So I’m on a bunch of email lists keeping track of various hate groups, and thus every morning my inbox looks like the Legion of Doom. Today’s awful email comes from the mailing list from Repent Amarillo, probably best known for getting punked by the “Dude, you have no Koran” guy. So, someone shares their tale of Christian love:

Pastor David, friends and eternal family in the Lord Jesus Christ:

I’d like to take this time to expand upon the words below – I’m compelled to do so by the Holy Spirit, and I hope these words find you well. As it is written:

“I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father but through me.” Amen. Never before in our history has Christianity faced such a tremendous threat, and it’s a multi-faced threat that surrounds us on virtually every side: secular atheism, abortionists, socialism, pornography, homosexuality, so-called “same sex marriage,” fiscal irresponsibility, immorality, “gay rights,” Jewish Zionism, and certainly not least, the terror of Islam. Jesus would be red with rage if he were here now.

I’d like to share something that happened a few weeks ago with you all in hopes that my courage – or rather, the courage the LORD instilled in me – might inspire you. I was camping with a friend of mine (former friend now) whom I’d known since grade school. We’d been drinking a little, which the Lord himself did at meals, so this isn’t necessarily a big deal in my eyes, but if it’s out of line, please witness to me. Anyway, he admitted to me that he was a homosexual. And you know what I did? I punched him in the throat. He actually admitted to me that he was a homosexual pervert and had been lying to me all these years. I kicked him out of the tent, which was mine anyway, and forced him to sleep outside. He started crying, saying this shit like “I thought you were my friend” and “please don’t do this, I thought you’d understand” and “please don’t cut me off” and whatnot. I screamed at him to shut the HELL up, because I wasn’t going to have any of his homosexual lies. What was next – was he going to tell me he was a fucking Muslim? Wouldn’t have surprised me at that point, I tell you what. Can I get an amen?

After that, he sent a bunch of emails… shit like “you’re the only one I thought would understand” and “please talk to me, I don’t know what to do, I’m so lost” and “I’m going to kill myself.” Well guess what? HE PROBABLY SHOULD. The Bible is very explicit in terms of homosexuality, and it’s a choice HE MADE. He chose to be an abomination; he chose the lie. Amen.

Friends, that took courage. It was no easy decision, until I prayed about it and the Spirit told me what to do. Just as what Pastor David describes below takes courage. Burning a Koran is NOT going to make you very popular, but in whose eyes does popularity matter? Man’s eyes, or the LORD’s eyes? Amen.

As it is written, the LORD will burn homosexuals and Muslims with Holy Fire in the end days. Let us prophecy by first burning the abomination of their book for all the world to see, as a precursor to what the LORD has in store for them. For it is written “They shall be burned with fire, for strong is the LORD God who judges them.”

Yours in the name of the Most Holy, today, tomorrow and forever,
