As Scott Rose over at Pam Spaulding's site noted -- “Beat-Your-Gay-Kids” N.C. Pastor Sean Harris can’t even keep his excuses straight:
As word spread — and shocked outage grew — that North Carolina Pastor Sean Harris has been instructing parents to beat their children if the children seem homosexual and/or non-gender conforming, Harris and his Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville, North Carolina are too stupid to get their damage control straight.
Harris the baby beater told the Fayetteville Observer that he was “joking” when he told parishioners to break their gay son’s limp wrists.
But the Berean Baptist Church’s Business Manager Carinda Kerr told this reporter that when Pastor Harris instructed parishioners to beat their gay and/or gay-seeming children, it was “hyperbole.” Kerr explained: “Jesus said, 'if the right eye offends you, pluck it out.'”
Isn’t that helpful? The gay-bashing preacher claims he was joking, while his church’s business manager says he was acting in the spirit of Jesus!
