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,

Gerry Tarrant


  1. I don’t believe we can find in any passage of the bible where Jesus ever became violent towards any sinner. He clearly said not to judge his killers because they not know what they do. So, who is it that gives this @ssh0le any authority to be anyone’s judge. For he wii surely burn in hell for harboring so much hate in his heart. Jesus never asked anyone to literally fight against non-believers, that’s a human perversion and that’s exactly what makes religion so divisive. My personal belief is Christianity is supposed to be a religion of tolerance not ignorance, which is something this @ssh0le clearly displays.

  2. The guy being gay isn’t his tragic flaw.

    It’s not understanding the hatred for others that his ‘trusted’ friends have.

    I’m not sure what affliction caused him not to see what was coming.

  3. Gerry Tarrant has so much in common with the Fundamentalist Muslims. To use scripture as a tool to attack others, I know this was not what Jesus had planned for us. Quit twisting the Gospel to fit your narrow world view. Its simple for Christians…they will know we are believers by our love. Not our hate. Please read the New Testament before you spout such vile hatred. Muslims are humans, they love, they hate, they laugh they cry. And most important, Jesus loves them as well. If you kill a man, you take away his chance for salvation. So the only thing you can do in the name of Christ is NOT kill non believers. Not hate non believers.

    God Bless

  4. 5 will get you 10 that the guy’s never punched anyone on the throat, ever. Just another closeted imaginary tough guy.

  5. OK. Reads like a parody but these people typically are their own parodies so I’ll take your word for it that it’s genuine.

  6. We can only hope that this gem of a human isn’t one bad idea / bottle-o’-goof away from expressing his 2nd Ammendment rights.

  7. What a wonderful, brave, loving christian way to respond. Jebus would be so proud. Or would he? No way to know – he never said a word about homosexuality, certainly never condemned it. But he never married, lived with his mother, wore a dress and hung out only with men who also wore dresses. Just sayin’…

  8. So let’s just assume for a second that this guy isn’t a Poe. (Gotta say, I agree with smchris.) What lesson can we learn? What should we take away from this?

    If you’re going to come out on a camping trip, make sure you drive.

    A lesson we should all remember.

  9. Gets even better

    This is the pastor and his real job is in security at a nuclear weapons facility. His pseudo military website now just points to a Google map – with targets.

    The wayback machine has this

    Your nukes are in good hands!!

    “I am a soldier in the army of my God. The Lord Jesus Christ is my Commanding Officer. The Holy Bible is my code of conduct. Faith, Prayer, and the Word are my weapons of warfare. I have been taught by the Holy Spirit, trained by experience, tried by adversity, and tested by fire. I am a volunteer in this army, and I am enlisted for eternity. I will either retire in this army at the Rapture or I will die in this army. But I will not get out, sell out, be talked out or pushed out. I am faithful, reliable, capable and dependable. If my God needs me, I am there. If He needs me in the Sunday School, to teach the children, work with the youth, help adults or just sit and learn, He can use me because I am there! I am a soldier. I am not a baby. I do not need to be pampered, petted, primed up, pumped up, picked up, or pepped up. I am a soldier. No one has to call me, remind me, write me, visit me, entice me or lure me. I am a soldier. I am not a wimp. I am in place, saluting my King, obeying His orders, praising His name and building His kingdom! No one has to send me flowers, gifts, food, cards or candy or give me handouts. I do not need to be cuddled, cradled, cared for or catered to. I am committed. I cannot have my feelings hurt bad enough to turn me around. I cannot be discouraged enough to turn me aside. I cannot lose enough to cause me to quit. When Jesus called me into this army, I had nothing. If I end up with nothing I will still come out ahead. I will win. My God has and will continue to supply all my needs. I am more than a conqueror. I will always triumph. I can do all things through Christ. The devil cannot defeat me. People cannot disillusion me. Weather cannot weary me. Sickness cannot stop me. Battles cannot beat me. Money cannot buy me. Governments cannot silence me, and hell cannot handle me. I am a soldier. Even death cannot destroy me. For when my Commanding officer calls me from His battlefield, He will promote me to captain and then allow me to rule with Him. I am a soldier in this army, and I’m marching claiming victory. I will not give up. I will not turn around. I am a soldier, marching Heavenbound. Here I stand! Will you stand with me?”

  10. The above e-mail DID NOT come from Repent Amarillo. We rebuke him for his violence. The correct response would be to use the word of God.
