Dave Welch, a pastor from Houston, writes an oped piece for wnd.com asking "Is your town next for protecting perversion?"
That's how he sees people. Perverts.
He wants to make sure that people like me are continuously harassed and treated with contempt so we never forget our place. It is difficult to see him as anything other than how I view the southern pastors that never spoke against the evil racism of the deep south...where all those "colored people" needed to be kept in their place.
It's just the colored people are now LGBTIQ people.
I think it is ignorance though. He can't know what it's like because he is not in the situation. He seems lacking in empathy.
Pastor Welch, you slander me in calling me a pervert and you harm me by wanting me treated less than equal.
You like James 4....please carry on.
11 Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or sister[d] or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it. 12 There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you—who are you to judge your neighbor?
