Pastor Rick Wiles Renounces American Citizenship Over SCOTUS Marriage Ruling

  • Mark

    So where’s he going to go? I can’t bear to listen to this whinger.

    • bryan

      He praises Russia. So, if he needs a one way ticket. I am sure there are many who would help contribute. A kind of ‘go fund me… go fuck yourself, Rick Wiles’.

    • JR

      Canada!

      *snork*

      • ColdCountry

        Fuck no!

        • Oh’behr

          Yeah, we don’t want him on the northern border trying to sneak back in to the USA. Eek!

      • Stubenville

        Canada goes to great lengths to not accept our rejects.

    • David Walker

      Hell.

      • In a handbasket. A foreign made handbasket.

        • ScottJL

          Heck, I’d be willing to take a class and weave him one if it will help get him on his way.

          • Christian ex-pats: You’ll know them by their love and their artfully handwoven cane luggage.

            Edit: I think my butch pill just wore off.

          • ScottJL

            Oh I never said it would be artful, my artistic talents are limited to basic cave drawings. It won’t even be water-tight, not that it matters where he’s going, it will however make excellent kindling.

          • People4Humanity

            NO, your BITCH pill just wore off.
            Check: Bitch is pink😡, Butch is blue😨.

      he’ll arrive at the same place he departed …
      the land of inner torment .

  • crewman

    All along these “patriots” wrapping themselves in the flag, waving the Constitution, and thumping their Bibles have been lying. They have never cared about what’s in the Constitution or the Bible. They severely omit and distort the words and meanings of each to support a view of the world that is a direct descendant of the Confederacy. They care about power and promoting a social caste that enshrines them at the top. They have never loved America. They don’t even love the Bible. The Constitution and the Bible are just tools.

    • ScottJL

      The Constitution and the Bible They are just tools.

      FIFY.

      • Goodboy

        Too bad I don’t beleive in Hell because this crackpot would be burning in it.

    • D. J.

      It’s called white supremacy for a reason……

    • bryan

      I hope this turns into a movement. Because if they think they are involving themselves in ‘sin’ by baking a cake, that could be extended to the act of living in a country where legal equality for gay couples is upheld. Time for an exodus. A rapture to Russia !

      • PLAINTOM

        Unfortunately, this movement will just be more bitching and moaning and none of them will ever leave. 🙁

        • David Walker

          Just like none of them will ever follow through on the self-immolation bit.

          • Oh’behr

            Jesus will never rapture them up soon either. Dammit.

          • Bj Lincoln

            They will be left on earth because they are not real Christians. If you think they are pissed off now, wait til they realize they are stuck here! LOL

          • PLAINTOM

            Their annual job performance evaluations always say poor followup.

    • ChrisMorley

      It’s not as easy as these dolts imagine. You should have citizenship of another country first. Let’s face it, this is a promise worth as much as a self-immolating pastor’s promise. Nothing.
      Here’s how to do it: http://www.expatinfodesk.com/expat-guide/relinquishing-citizenship/renunciating-your-us-passport/five-steps-to-renunciating-your-us-passport/

    • charemor

      The fact is most of them have no idea what is in the Constitution or the Bible.

  • geoffalnutt

    Now, if the rest would do the same, life would be a lot better! Come on, kids…what are you waiting for?

  • bkmn

    I hear property in Russia is very affordable. Feel free to buy a one way ticket Mr. Wiles.

    • frogview

      Until they hear you’re a “rich” American!

    • D. J.

      I bet he can get a great deal about 3 miles from Fukushima.

      • Oh’behr

        I hear property is dirt cheap closer in. He could even grow his own food.

        • Dazzer

          grow or glow?

    • ColdCountry

      Just read the immigration laws and requirements for Russia. I don’t think he’ll be happy there, but I doubt he’d be happy anywhere.

      • People4Humanity

        Russia took Snowden. So, there’s that.

        • ColdCountry

          That’s an asylum thing, isn’t it? He hasn’t become a citizen or Russia, has he?

          • People4Humanity

            Good catch. No easy way out, gat dang it!

          • ColdCountry

            Maybe he could claim persecution from God?

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    That’s all fine and good Ricky but, just so you know….

    • b

      Uganda? Leave progressive, western civil society behind.

      • Dazzer

        The poor bastard is in a bit of a bind. I doubt he speaks any other languages, so he’ll have to go somewhere they speak English.

        Unfortunately all the white places where they speak English as either a first or second language have already enacted marriage equality or (waves at Australia) are under increasing pressure to do so.

        So, if he wants to speak to anyone, his best bet is Africa.

        But, y’know, they’re all a bit … well… non-white there, so his racism might explode his head before the gays do.

        • Matt in PDX

          I suppose he could move to Jamaica and live in a walled compound surrounded by armed guards.

          • PTBoat

            Guyana seems more like his kind of place.

        • Douglas A. O’Leary

          Actually, India, Pakistan, the Philippines, Eritrea, and numerous other nations consider English to be an official language, albeit they claim more than one official language. So, the world is quite open to the jerk.

    • Stubenville

      Fake, fake fake! Where’s the “sorry”? there should be at least two.

      • People4Humanity

        … as in, “Sorry — NOT Sorry!” ?

      • Jean-Marc in Canada

        Not when it comes to right wing ‘murikans……that’s where Canucks draw the line….no sorrys for you!

    • Liar, liar rants on fire. It’s not even plausible.

      undocumented.

    • David Walker

      • D. J.

        I’d rather make the grifters get a tax I D number.

    • OUTinMinnesota

      Quote from Rick Wiles about Illegal immigrants… and I guess this is what he hopes for:

      There’s a real possibility that all private property could be confiscated in the United States of America. Could it be hard for you to imagine Barack Obama taking homes from middle class, conservative people and giving them to illegal immigrants who just came into the country? That’s a no-brainer for me, that is a redistribution of wealth.

  • Allan_in_SF

    I’m sure Uganda would be delighted to have him. I eagerly await news of his departure.Of course I am still eagerly awaiting news of Rick Scarborough’s self -immolation; and has Limbaugh finally done packing for his move to Costa Rica?

    • Ron Robertson

      That’s exactly where I thought he should go, too. Never to be heard from again would be alright with me.

    • Lindoro Almaviva

      But Costa Rica is such a nice place! What not the Patagonia or Tierra del fuego? Better yet, Antartica

      • Dramphooey

        Will nobody think of the penguins!?

      • … but Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego already have marriage equality, or are on the way to getting it…

        • ColdCountry

          Surely there is a deserted rock somewhere we can drop him on!

          • Balderdashing

            There’s that floating “island” of trash the size of Texas in the Pacific. Poetic on so many levels.

          • Oh’behr

            Trashistan?

          • ColdCountry

            Excellent suggestion!

          • Sean

            Happily for the environment (well, relatively happily) and sadly for your idea, the great pacific garbage patch isn’t obviously different to the rest of the ocean to someone in it. It’s about 4 particles of material per cubic meter, but most particles are microscopic.

          • Balderdashing

            He just needs a houseboat.

          • Paula

            I hear Greenland in nice in the summer. All 23 days of it.

          • Balderdashing

            Greenland has passed marriage equality. Might even be in effect by now.

          • Paula

            Yeah, but, the rest of the year that will be confined to their shelters and unable to move about too freely. On those 23 days, everyone else can go on vacation. 🙂

          • Oh’behr

            Lol. Isn’t Greenland still technically Denmark or is it now an independent country. I’ll have to look it up. I don’t think either way Greenland will want him.

          • Paula

            MInor detail. Its listed as an independent nation of Denmark.
            A bastard step-child?

          • Balderdashing

            It’s like Denmark’s Puerto Rico: semi-autonomous. They were not obligated to allow marriage equality when it was adopted by Denmark, but finally did so this year.

          • ColdCountry

            Why do you hate Greenland?

          • Dazzer

            Sadly for him, Greenland has marriage equality.

          • Oh’behr

            Doesn’t the UK still have possession of the deserted rocks?

          • Dazzer

            That’d be Rockall.

            And it’s an excellent suggestion.

          • RoFaWh

            Rockall would do nicely.

          • ColdCountry

            Yes, yes that looks excellent! Or – even better? – one of the neighboring rocks that is submerged part of the time.

        LOL………DID you see the Confederate FLAG Truck demonstration ?, and then LOL…….the Trucks get into to total “smash up” crashing into each other. What idiots, they can also hopefully re-locate. Since obviously their Insurance rates will or should increase (if they even had insurance ). Better yet, when they and if they report the “accidents”, and the Insurance companies get involved. “My client was back ended because” the guy behind him was driving too fast in a Confederate Flag demonstration, now his suffers from whiplash,

Please turn in your passport at the embassy of your choice. Bon voyage, pilgrim!

    Has his declaration been accepted by the USA? There are procedures to follow. Announcing it on a show alone doesn’t get the job done.

      I’ll believe it when I see him sign the forms at an American embassy in Uganda or Saudi Arabia or something. Otherwise he’s just being a whiny little child.

        Interesting he mentions a Russian blow-hard.

        Evangelism outside of the sanctioned Russian Orthodox church is frowned upon. In fact you can get in serious trouble.

        If talibanjelicals and baptists think they’d be welcome with open arms, nyet. If they thought they could attempt the power grabs they have here in the US? Oh helllllll no, not in Russia.

        EDIT: Well one reason Wiles may still like Russia. Abstinence only sex education, strong influence of the Russian Orthodox church, vilification of anything with so much as a whiff of a western sensibility, and a growing AIDS crisis as a result. This is horrifying.

    Do these idiots know that getting residency in another country is not something you do in an afternoon?

    • clay

      They don’t understand that most immigration to the US requires a lottery win and nearly a year of waiting and background checks.

      • Balderdashing

        Worse yet for them, you have to pass a test showing you understand how the government works.

        • clay

          They hate people who had to choose and work to become citizens, but are proud of those who did nothing but drop out of their mothers here. It’s like treating Blacks. many of whom fought for the Union, less well than whites who fought against it.

    • Hue-Man

      Especially if you’re a stateless person. Airlines won’t let you board an international flight without your passport and required visas.

        we can just stick them on a raft and push them out to international waters, right?

    • Stubenville

      You should see what happens to the yahoos who show up at the Canadian border with a pickup truck full of furniture. The nicest outcome is that the polite border guards tell them to immediately turn around. Of course, getting back through the American checkpoint is a huge hassle if they don’t have passports… LOL.

      • MBear

        We’re avid fans of Border Security (teevee show about Canadian border services) but we have yet to see that! LOL

        Funny watching Americans trying to bring pot or guns in saying, “I have a right!” *giggle*

        Well, I’m embarrassed for them.
        But I can laugh at myself. heh

        • Stubenville

          The worst case is that the polite Canadian border agents dissemble every stick of furniture and slice open all the upholstery looking for contraband. If nothing is found, the numpties get sent back to the USA maybe 12 hours later. If weapons or contraband are found, ruh-roh.

    Funny, how he didn’t renounces citizenship over the issue of religious freedom. I mean there are millions of people in the United States who don’t share his beliefs about Jesus, let alone his beliefs about gay people. I guess it’s a matter of priorities.

            Cool. I’d like to think you heard it while dancing under the stars one summer’s evening, fireflies blinking in the moonlight, the music wafting out from the car there in Lover’s Lane. When we were just getting started and thinking about a future, I wrote to him that “I’m not talking about moving in and I don’t want to change your life.” So England Dan and John Ford Coley’s “I Really Want to See You Tonight” became ours.

    He is just like that straight couple in Australia who will divorce if gay marriage happens in their country. Well, the gays in Australia wrote them a happy letter saying “Who care?” Nobody in this country will care if you do renounce your American citizenship. We, the gay American citizens, can breathe a sigh of relief that another Christian bigot has left our beautiful country. Goodbye asshole.

  • MexicoTom

    What good news! Something more to celebrate this weekend!

  • James

    You can’t renounce your citizenship if doing so would leave you stateless, so unless he’s a dual citizen this is entirely meaningless.

    • Elsewhere1010

      According to the US State Department website you are advised to acquire citizenship elsewhere before renunciation — but you can renounce anytime you wish. Becoming stateless (and no longer having a passport) becomes your own problem. Uncle Sam doesn’t care, except that you can’t stay in the U.S. any longer.

      • William

        He can try to start that teabagger/Randian paradise in Honduras.

      • Ted

        But, if you haven’t been granted citizenship elsewhere and you renounce your citizenship, what do the authorities do with you? Are you considered an illegal?

        • Elsewhere1010

          They’re not kidding around here; the State Department will advise you to have established dual citizenship in place before renouncing your U.S. citizenship, but you are free to make the renunciation at any time.

          You need to leave the U.S. ASAP and probably will need a visa to re-enter in the future. If you owe taxes, you’re not permitted to re-enter unless you’re paid up. There is no “compassion” exemption for family-related illness or death.

          After renunciation, the United States has no concern about whether you have someplace else to go or not. Why would they? At that point you are no longer a citizen of the U.S.

          • Ted

            I get it that they don’t care because you’re no longer a citizen. But what I don’t understand is, what do they do with you when you have no other country to go to? Are you simply incarcerated as a illegal immigrant?

      • People4Humanity

        I hear the swim to Cuba is nice this time of year.

    • David Walker

      Entirely meaningless? Pastor Rick would say something entirely meaningless? Not Pastor Rick. Oh, please, sir, say it isn’t so.

  • continuum

    Great! Can we now deport him to Russia?

  • Elsewhere1010

    How To, from the U.S. State Department website:

    “B. ELEMENTS OF RENUNCIATION

    A person wishing to renounce his or her U.S. citizenship must voluntarily and with intent to relinquish U.S. citizenship:

    appear in person before a U.S. consular or diplomatic officer,

    in a foreign country (normally at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate); and

    sign an oath of renunciation

    Renunciations that do not meet the conditions described above have no legal effect. Because of the provisions of Section 349(a)(5), U.S. citizens cannot effectively renounce their citizenship by mail, through an agent, or while in the United States. In fact, U.S. courts have held certain attempts to renounce U.S. citizenship to be ineffective on a variety of grounds, as discussed below.”

    So it’s not hard to do, and the best part is — it’s permanent. No do overs, no take backsies, one you renounce you are no longer a U.S. citizen. (You had better inquire about becoming a citizen somewhere else, or you have just become both stateless and passportless.)

    Even better you probably will need a visa to enter the U.S. as a guest; you’re not permitted to just live here.

    Oh, and renouncing your citizenship does not wipe out any federal tax or military obligations. Kinda makes me wonder how Pastor Wiles is doing with the IRS these days…

        Well, shit.

  • Clive Johnson

    Here’s how I imagine it anyway:

    A thundering voice is shaking his house. Rick jumps to his feet.

    “My loyal son, this is your god: God.”

    Rick is confused and awestruck. Silent. The ultimate voice of authority is measured and booming.

    “Did you hear me Rick? This is your god. I have a message for you, my most loyal servant.”

    “I am here god, as always.”

    “I have created a new homeland on earth to gather and protect my loyal subjects before my hand is once again forced to commit genocide against your species. I do not wish to expose you to the oceans of blood my holiness and goodness will spill, so you will go to this new land.”

    “Ye, ye, yes Lord I will do as you wish,” says Rick.

    “Find a canoe, load it with a week’s worth of supplies, and head for the middle of the north Pacific. There you will find a new paradise. You will know it by the 2000 foot tall statue of Jesus holding a lamb, the lamb of the new Christian civilization that you will there build. With Jesus, and with your god: God. Me. And Jesus, who is also a god, but somehow slightly less than.”

    “Yes Lord.”

    “Now, renounce your American citizenship. Also, stop walking around in your underwear, and return those books on evolution from the library that you claimed were lost.”

    “Prepare for a new way of life. Genitals will be removed upon entrance to the island so as to preserve chastity. Grinding poverty will be the norm, but Bibles will grow on trees like grapes on the vine in Sonoma.

    And Jesus will finally make an appearance there. Note, he is not the image with which you are familiar from art. His teeth are transparent and glow in the dark with the radiance of my love. He will walk unclothed, and lo, he hath prodigious endowment.

    This new land, it is called New Sod, the land of fresh earth and abundance, and yes, the snakes have all been removed, relocated to a southern state in the US.

    Go now Rick. Your American identity is the identity now of sin. As a New Sodomite, you will recreate my Kingdom on earth. With Jesus.”

        piyushing: n. a brief stalling tactic that has virtually no real effect.

        • MBear

          2 – Grandstanding & gaslighting even though everyone with an IQ greater than that of a tree frog can see you’re just manipulating the ignorant masses.
          3 – Being more popular with the people who are only following you on social media because of the train wreck that is your existence rather than the slightest hint of popularity with anyone who thinks you’re even the slightest bit reliable/intelligent/capable/etc.
          4 – Thinking you have everyone fooled when everyone knows and is laughing at you. (see also Dunning-Kruger effect)

    • KQCA

      OMG! I wondered what was happening just now. I’m in SoCal and the sky is falling. They were right! The sky is falling here! Soon we’ll all be killed. This is the end just as they predicted. What have we done? We must fall to our knees and…….wait….. oh never mind. It’s just sprinkling outside.

  • Joe knows who I am.

    Miami to Entebbe. I’ll cover the cost, but you must depart on Tuesday, July 7th, 2015.

    WAAAAAAAAAAA!

    Boy, he sure showed us.

    • Clive Johnson

      I know. I’m still reeling from the blow.

      • People4Humanity

        … hoping you mean that in the good way.

        • Clive Johnson

          I’m open to all comers.

  • KQCA

    Odd that we’re in a drought here in California and the more these fools pray to their god, the more clouds and mist appear here to create rainbows in the sky.

  • Geezus Christ

    God bless America. God bless America. God bless America. There – I said it. Now go away.

          lol

  • KnownDonorDad

    I think this might be the best sadz reaction yet. And I have to say, somewhat like the clerks who resigned over same-sex marriage, if he puts his money where is mouth his and follows through (which isn’t at all clear from the clip; he may just no longer “celebrate” being in America), I would begrudgingly give him a bit of respect. Listening to this, he sure sounds like he’d be happier in Russia. Do svidaniya!

    • David Walker

      Obviously, Russia has changed greatly from the USSR days, but I still find it hilarious that the same people who used to hate that piece of real estate now praise it.

  • billbear1961

    Immigration! Immigration!!

    We have an illegal who needs deporting!

    Put him on a plane to Moscow (where he’ll fit right in with their social attitudes)–we wouldn’t want him to miss Putin’s coronation . . .

    • GreatLakeSailor

      Has Putin found his new Rasputin?

      • billbear1961

        I think he’s his own czar and Rasputin rolled into one, GLS.

  • KQCA

    I am so grateful for JoeMyGod and JMG commenters. After a lifetime of insults and assaults from born-again christians, it is SO healing to see them being called on their behavior. They haven’t suffered a teaspoon full of what they’ve dished out on LGBTs the past 50 years. And still I wouldn’t wish it on them. No one should suffer what these people have done or encouraged to be done to us. I am so thankful to be alive to see these days.

    • David Walker

      Yep. I know what you mean. From time to time, I think I may be enjoying this too much, but I get over that fairly quickly.

      • billbear1961

        You enjoy yourself all you can, David!

        It is so ordered!

      • Uncle Sal

        enjoy it, David, enjoy it! And take an extra curtain call, you earned it.

    • billbear1961

      You are very kind, KTCA.

      But I disagree–they DESERVE to suffer for what they have maliciously, gleefully and sadistically inflicted on the innocent for so long.

      But they won’t (although perhaps a guilty conscience makes them FEAR they might be made to PAY for what they’ve done!).

      They’ll just PRETEND to be “victims,” of imaginary persecution (because–gasp!–they’ll have to obey the law, like everyone else).

      In a world where Justice truly ruled, evil people–who go out of their way to HARM their innocent neighbours, who have never harmed THEM–would be consistently PUNISHED for their crimes.

    • GreatLakeSailor

      From the annals of ChristianistPersecution: Being subjected to and having to endure the winter solstice salutation of “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas.”

      Oh, the humanity!

      • I once wished a very religious blow hard, “Merry Winter Solstice!” Yeah that didn’t go over at all well, I thought she was going to explode, but luckily for me, she turned and flounced off.

  • Stubenville

    Has anyone notified the appropriate immigration authorities? Пошли! (Let’s go,)

  • gaymex

    Please, mother fucker,don’t come to Mexico.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      Too many crazy-ass U.S. fundies have set up shop there already.

    • Yeah, if he is leaving, oh wait. That fucker isn’t going anywhere, more hot air from a septic tank.

  • I can’t listen to the whole thing. 30 seconds was already too much! So, where’s he going?

    • billbear1961

      To HELL, I hope.

      And the sooner the better.

    • He never said, but did reference Russia about a zillion times. This blowhard is in lust with Putin’s Russia, the outlawing of rainbow flags was mentioned.

  • Cody Shiranai

    Bye felicia! So where are you going, so we can avoid ever going there unless you just happen to forget they have gay marriage too. Maybe Thailand? Plenty of “Christians” there, right?

  • GayOldLady

    Good, one less fucked in the head religious nut to have to deal with

  • Daverley

    Just another white, self-entitled, heterosexual male banging on his high chair that he and his ilk don’t get to call all the shots anymore. Nothing new to see here.

    • Bj Lincoln

      Very true.

  • Bj Lincoln

    I do feel sorry he will go elsewhere to impose his brand of hate and lies on the innocent. I would love to pray they blow up or fall into the ocean but that would be wrong. So….I will just wish it instead and hope the Goddess understands.

    • Octavio

      Ah, Bj . . . what’s a little precatory prayer here or there, now and then? I say go for it. 🙂

  • Davidjs

    This is all a trick to extort money from his sheeple.

    ‘Pastor Wiles’: I’m renouncing my citizenship in protest.’

    ‘Sheeple’: Please don’t. Who will provide for our spiritual growth if you leave?’

    ‘Pastor Wiles’: I’ll reconsider if every single one of you take out another mortgage on your shack/trailer home/two room hovel/etc., and send me the money.

    ‘Sheeple’: Anything you want. Just don’t leave us to think for ourselves. It hurts when we think.’

  • Curieux Bleu

    This theofascist mentally ill con-artist monster was never needed in the USA to begin with.

    So there is no loss for America at all, and now that he is a foreign alien, he should not overstay his lack of welcome.

    He can not leave the star-spangled shores soon enough.

  • Drake

    Wonderful – I believe that this needs to be done outside the USA in order to be effective.

  • JaniceInToronto

    OK. I propose a kickstarter campaign to buy him a ticket to, oh, Russia, or Iran or Pakistan maybe. He’d fit right in and finally find some peace in his hate.

    What a nasty, nasty man.

    • William

      I think he’d like Mosul, Iraq ever so much.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      I know of a Century2111 realtor over there who could find him a lovely cave.

    • GreatLakeSailor

      I’m a compassionate guy: I say a one-way ticket to Russia* and a single copy of Rosette Stone Russian.

      *The Russian Federation is not a monolith and there are autonomous republics that are akin to blue spots in the Southern US. So, respect to those folks. (like Ufa City, Bashkortostan Republic)

  • Don’t let our golden door hit you when it slams shut on your assdom.

  • Hard2find

    I say we deport him to North Korea. NOW

  • dcurlee

    Rick quit talking and get packing

  • PBGVNinja

    Give him a one way ticket to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, then send him to the Empty Quarter to roast in the desert sun and literally Pound Sand. That is, if the Saudis will even take him. And tell him he can leave his Bible behind. Good Riddance.

  • PBGVNinja

    And, to make it even nicer for him, remind him it’s Ramadan and he can’t eat or drink anything from sunrise to sunset. In High Summer.

  • kiltedyak

    Wow…get down off the crucifix, someone needs the wood.

  • Gerry Fisher

    Bye Felicia has become a tag. I *love* it!

  • A Big Sarcastic Fairy!

    Buh-Bye! Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

  • Rrhain

    Oh, this is just another, “I’m gonna set myself on fire!” whine.

    But, just in case he’s serious:

    http://travel.state.gov/content/travel/english/legal-considerations/us-citizenship-laws-policies/renunciation-of-citizenship.html

    Alas, unless he was at a consular office for another country, his renunciation is ineffective. You cannot renounce your citizenship and then stay in the US. You have to leave.

    Please be aware that unless you have made arrangements for citizenship of another country, you may be rendered stateless and have your freedom of travel restricted as you will no longer have a passport.

    Renunciation of citizenship is irrevocable. The only way to get it back is to apply for citizenship as an immigrant.

  • Octavio

    Does he need a ride to the airport? Somebody quick dial Uber. 🙂

  • RKitty01

    love you bye bye

  • Sorcery, witchcraft are connected to equal marriage? Wow, that’s a new wrinkle, but then it does go along with the right and their drumming about the “black robed” justices. Stupid fucker, move to Russia already, your love of all things Russian is obvious.

  • Canadian Observer

    There is a relatively simple solution of what to do with him – there is a concept under international law of terra nullius – literally translated as “nobody’s land” – used to describe territory that no country claims (or has claimed) sovereignty over. The largest easily accessible bit of territory that is terra nullius is the area referred to as the Bir Tiwil, an area (just shy of 800 square miles) along the Egyptian/Sudanese border that neither state claims…. send his ass there!

  • Richard

    “We tasted the goodness of the lord then we spit it out”

  • Robert W. Pierce

    What’s the betting he’ll backtrack in the next few days. Nowhere to run for sure.

  • justmeeeee

    Does he have any clue how much the USA charges citizens to renounce? He’d best start a GOFUNDME for it!

    • Rrhain

      $2,350. I think he can afford it.

      Of course, if he has large assets, he will need to pay an exit fee.

      He is, of course, talking out of his ass.

  • Sporkfighter

    He’s spouting bullshit. He’ll never leave. He speaks only English, he’s too fond of soft beds, warm meals, and gullible parishioners. He’ll soon announce that his flock have begged him not to leave them, and of course, he can’t desert their cash.

    • Steven Leahy

      If he did leave, it’d last about a month and he’d be begging to come back.

  • The easiest way to renounce your citizenship is to join an Islamic Militant group, Lil’ Dicky. They share most of your beliefs and are willing to let anyone who hates america as much as they do join. Just wear this tracking chip so we can know where you are if there is anymore paperwork we need you to sign. Just ignore that CIA insignia, it means nothing.

  • CB

    When I hear this childish nonsense, I think of Tennessee Williams from “The Glass Menagerie.”

    “I can tell you many things to make you sleepless, mother, my enemies plan to dynamite this place, they’re gonna blow us sky high! And I will be glad! I will be very happy, and so will you be. You will go up, up, up, over Blue Mountain, on a broomstick with seventeen gentleman callers! You ugly, babbling old witch!”

  • nipper
  • Christopher

    Later dude! See Ya!

  • SilasMarner

    Add me to the list of people who will shove him out the door. Of course he will change his mind and want to stay, but let’s push him across the border anyway.

  • Gregory B

    Don’t let the door hit you on your way out. And stay the hell away from Canada!

  • zoli

    I recommend russia.

  • Jude Newton

    The sad truth is Pastor Wiles isn’t going anywhere. Wait a month and lets see if he goes thru with this. Just another empty threat from the extremists.

    • skeptical_inquirer

      He should go to Rush Limbaugh and cheer himself up with some drugs.

  • Michael

    He can move to Uganda or ISIS-controlled Iraq where he should be quite comfortable. Homophobia Uber Alles!

  • There must a be a crowd share fund thingy going on somewhere to get these guys out.. it seeme like the decent thing to do…

  • Michael Rush

    this was posted this morning … is he gone yet ?

  • JoeNCA

    Someone get this illegal out of our country!

  • Supercapital

    Well BYE! Get out of my country. Don’t like “land of the free?” Then get out.

  • Kissmagrits

    Maybe crazy Pat can put him on one of the CBN planes and fly him to Uganda – – perhaps on his next blood diamond pickup.

  • Boy Elvis

    Well, flee to Russia, you hick. They loves them some homophobes in Russia. We all know you’re not going to go live in any brown people type countries.

    Bonus points: The numb fuck sounds like he’s on the verge of tears.

  • GayEGO

    Bye Bye Ricky Dicky! And restore your name, was it Mary Doogan? :>)

  • Aron Sasportas

    So far as I know, it is impossible to renounce one’s American citizenship while on American soil and not having another citizenship.
