Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant: Christians Will Line Up For Crucifixions In Order To Stop LGBT Rights [VIDEO]

Kyle Mantyla report at Right Wing Watch:

At least week’s Watchmen on the Wall conference, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins presented Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant with the first ever “Samuel Adams Religious Freedom Award” for having signed a radical anti-LGBT bill into law earlier this year that will allow businesses to deny service to gay people.

While introducing the governor, Perkins said that America’s elected leaders should be “ministers of God,” while Bryant praised the hate group leader as something of a modern-day David.

Later, Bryant recalled how “all of the secular progressive world had decided that they were going to pour their anger” out on him for pledging to sign the legislation, wrongly thinking that he could be pressured into backing down because they were unaware that Christians like him would line up to be crucified before turning their backs on Jesus.

“They don’t know us very well, do they?” he asked. “They don’t know that Christians have been persecuted throughout the ages. They don’t know that if it takes crucifixion, we will stand in line before abandoning our faith and our belief in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. So if we are going to stand, now is the time and this is the place.”

    Sadly, when it comes to the actual martyring part of martyrdom, most of these “christians” suddenly disappear and aren’t willing to go through with their promises to off themselves in the name of Jeebus. I for one wish they would… i’m so disappointed every time i learn that they haven’t followed through on their threats to die for their cause.

    • Spudger

      It’s always some variant of “I don’t have to, I made my point!”

    Gay rights would have no effects on them other than them selling a product they normally sell. I think it’s time for LGBT to start refusing to do service to those that wear crosses.

    If they do line up for crucifixion (Bryant and a couple of his silly friends), they will have to bring their own crosses and nails and hammers, and will have to crucify each other cause no one else is going to crucify them. Blustery talk is cheap.

    There is a big difference between being executed for refusing to denounce one’s religion – a big difference between being murdered for threatening a repressive state – a big difference between being gassed and burned in ovens for being a Jew – there is a big difference between all those things and being forced to allow people to use bathrooms.

    And there is a big difference between being oppressed, tortured, beaten, killed, denied basic human rights (things LGBT people are very familiar with) and being told they can’t deny those rights and protections to people they despise.

      they don’t sleep so well. they often huddle in fear in the dark, imagining demons coming to punish them for their crimes. beneath the bluster is a fear deeper than any confused 3yo, stronger than in the unrepentant rapist-priest, and it grows with every passing day.

      Ah, no. That’s not their style. They prefer sniper shots from hidden locations, kidnappings ending with a lynching (and a good drink, after), and bombs left to explode in crowded venues, like at the Olympics or a gay club or a women’s clinic. No, these people don’t have any interest in experiencing pain themselves, they much prefer to inflict it on others and then have a good laugh.

    Well…perhaps someone should tell the Bible literalist Governor about Matthew 19:12. If Jesus loved eunuchs because of the reign of the heavens..and the Gov. wants to be accepted by Jesus, then perhaps he should take up Origen’s knife.

    Or, admit that he just wants to deny other adults what he allows for himself.

        “Substitutiary atonement” (suffering for the sins of another) has reached a sort of nadir in orthodox Christian theology at the present time.

Now, gov, you feel so smug talking such trash ’cause you know it ain’t gonna happen, no way. BUT, if the gov can get the ball rolling, would someone please send me the address of where they will assemble the crosses? I want to send a donation to help them build as many as these wonderful whiners want.

  • sandollar_man

    Oh he’s so persecuted.
    When you go to your church and the main theme is a guy on a cross being persecuted, you tend to follow that theme in your life.
    And this persecution type of propaganda is reinforced 52 times a year.
    The protestant varieties of Christians go into their churches to gaze at a crucifix – a torture device. They get all warm inside.
    The Catholic varieties of Christians go into their churches to gaze at a half naked man in a submissive torture position on – a torture device. They get all warm inside.
    Then they engage in symbolic cannibalism.

    • BudClark

      To give the Roman Catholics, SOME credit, newer RC churches have Christ reigning in glory from the Cross. I don’t particularly care for the one at the national Shrine in D.C., but it does get the point of “Pantokrater / Creator of the Worlds” across.

    Centuries of religious art and music have considerably sanitized crucifixion; it’s a horrible way to die.

Does he not know that as people become educated on the fact that as people have become educated on human sexuality, science and the like that their views have evolved from what he is isolating out of the Bible? Does he not know that the Bible doesn’t record one instance of Jesus dealing with gay people in the manner he believe in? Does he not know that his belief on homosexuality is rooted in the Biblical narrative that describes the attitudes of Bible days when the only understanding they had of homosexuality was what they saw in the pagan temples and in the orgies the pagan people of the day participated in? Well, no, he doesn’t know and doesn’t want to. He would probably be glad to reestablish slavery, too.

    Jesus was crucified. The Jews were the chosen people, not the Christians. Christians took the OLD TESTAMENT and rewrote it to justify their hatred and judgment of man by exacting passages and twisting it to their own interpretation. You had a choice, Church of England or Christianity, which was viewed as a cult, forcing your beliefs upon others, which violates the Constitutions Freedom of Religion. The “bible” is a plagerized book stolen from GOD’S chosen people. Written by self proclaimed profits. We all know about those “profit”, Jim Jones, David Karech, Heaven’s Gate. Maybe it is time to Crucify the “cristians”.

Will there be a fee ( If there is, I am sure that they would be happy to pay their own way)? Do I get a special discount if I make them a cross out of recycled lumber? Will the burial of the crucified be covered by their life insurance or their health insurance, or will that have to come out of their own pocket? How can we be sure that they will not come back again after three days? Do potential candidates for crucifixion need to travel to Mississippi to be crucified, or will you establish multiple sites in every state–you know, like crucifixion camps? Wow, there are so many questions. Phil, I’m not sure if you have thought this through very well… Is there a number to call for more information–like they have for the Butterball Turkey Hotline?
