ARKANSAS: Duggar-Affiliated Church Goes Door To Door With Flyers Claiming Gay People Don’t Exist

Fayetteville’s NBC affiliate reports:

A Fayetteville Baptist Church is attaching controversial pamphlets to people’s homes, voicing their opinions on homosexuality. “I was just offended that they would be going door-to-door in this community with that information. I think most neighbors were pretty offended,” Fayetteville Resident, Joanna McCusker said.

Some Fayetteville residents up in arms as flyers addressing the topic of homosexuality are attached to doors in the Historic District neighborhood. “I’ve had religious pamphlets dropped off, but nothing like that,” Fayetteville resident, Joan Sirlin, said.

The pamphlet asks the question, “Does God love Homosexuals?” The answer given says, “This is a flawed question, there are no such things as Homosexuals.” Residents tells us a large group, including children, from the Lighthouse Baptist Church are behind the message. “There was a young boy who was attaching some sort of literature to our door. It’s very sad that they’re using children to promote their message,” McCusker said.

More from AOL News:

Last week, Joseph Duggar revealed he’s courting Kendra Caldwell. It only took days for controversy to follow. 22-year-old Joseph and 18-year-old Kendra met through church, and the Duggars famously lean quite conservative. But even by far-right standards, Kendra’s family’s stance on homosexuality is a bit shocking.

Kendra’s father, Paul Caldwell, is a pastor at Lighthouse Baptist Church in Fayetteville, Arkansas. According to local reports, his parish is responsible for distributing controversial pamphlets door-to-door around the community.

Paul Caldwell reportedly declined to respond in person, but responded to media via text with a decidedly mixed message. “Our church loves the LGBT community, hence the reason we have decided since Spring 2014 to reach out to them. This is just another avenue we are trying,” he wrote. “To them it is simply a reminder that God loves them, and if I were to truly love them then I must tell them the truth.”

Local resident Joanna McCusker countered, “If you read their literature you’ll see that they don’t actually believe that there are such thing as gay people — it’s almost a science-fiction idea that they have.”

RELATED: Last month the Arkansas Supreme Court struck down Fayetteville’s LGBT rights ordinance, saying it was in violation of a statewide ban on pro-LGBT laws. Two years ago opposition to the ordinance was spearheaded by former Family Research Council director Josh Duggar, who was later exposed as a “porn-addicted” incestuous child molester.

    Why do we need judicial activists in the first place? Because christianists tried to say we didn’t exist and were nothing more than a psychiatric disorder. Saying a culture doesn’t exist is the first step in eradicating it. (Consider this when the response to Black Lives Matter is Nuh Uh ALL lives matter)

    • vee

      Those “All Lives Matter!!!” nutjobs piss me right the hell off.
      These are the same people who blither, “Where is our STRAIGHT pride parade???”

      These are also the freaks who chant that “men cannot become women” while believing that bread turns into Jesus flesh.

      2. Their god supposedly does exist, but you can’t find him anywhere.

      Stupidity of this level doesn’t need our help to mock it.

        • Uncle Mark

          Plus we nonexistent things somehow keep making their god angrier & angier, that he can’t even aim straight when sending the tornadoes, floods, and tremors.

          • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

            Hey, YOU try smiting something through the heliosphere! It’s like trying to shoot something under water, it messes with your aim. (Of course, if it wanted to, their god could snap whatever it uses for fingers and make that pesky old heliosphere take a hike, right? Omnipotent and all that…)

      • Todd20036

        I think the idea is that we aren’t gay. We are merely straight people who fuck men because it’s easier to get laid that way.

        Heck, that’s how my own father felt.

        Of course, that would mean there are a lot of overweight men who fuck other men for desperate reasons.

        And all rugged, handsome men are never gay because they can get any woman they want.

        And lesbians are lesbian until they can wrap their lips around a “chubbie”.

        Yes, it’s stupid, and it’s religious, and it’s a big reason why the anti gay groups embraced “conversion therapy” since that showed people being able to get over gay sex.

        Note that no one seems to admit that even the founders of such movements were able to change their orientation, but why quibble?

        I think you are onto something here. Right-wingers always project psychologically, so maybe they are signaling their own doubts about the existence of God, but dressing it up in homosexual drag.

      • Orly

        Agreed. It is appalling however, that they are using children and “teaching” them this nonsense. It should be considered child abuse.

        If gay people were removed from the equation, I’m sure they’d just plug in “uppity women” to replace them.

        Black people and illegal immigration lack the religious bent they can impose on gays and wimmenz.

        • fritzrth

          That hasn’t stopped them from using the buybull to justify their racism. THe biggest supporters of Jim Crow and the KKK were the same religious bigots attacking the LGBT community today, using the same arguments. And they still do.

          As far as they’re concerned, ‘What god has driven asunder (the races) let no man join together.’

      By their logic and theology, divorced people don’t exist, either. Only adulterers.

      As I always say, if someone is telling you that “Homosexuality is a Choice,” it tells you a lot more about the person speaking than it does about Homosexuals.

      • RoFaWh

        And, possibly worst of all, they think prayer is a useful substitute for the hard work of helping others in distress.

      • McSwagg

        If god doesn’t exist, and Jesus doesn’t exist, and LGBT people don’t exist, then they must hold us in really high esteem. God like even.

    • That’s why I get so mad at people like Nick Kristoff. Yeah, HE needs to talk to conservatives and try to understand why they are so mad. Some of us already live in Teabagistan and have known for years. We’re supposed to compromise? How is that supposed to work? Their idea of compromise is for us to all go back into the closet. How could we since all the closets are full of right wing bigots? (see news story from Oklahoma today)

      Plus cheaper. I’m betting the church doesn’t even have the few bucks to pony up for the mass mailing rate.

Apparently, their only qualifications for becoming a judge are being homophobic and an inbred hick. Don’t you ever change, Arkansas! We wouldn’t know what to do with ourselves if you weren’t the most racist and homophobic state in the union. So keep on pretending that it’s still 1967 (without the interracial marriage of course).

        No one really knows why. Or, I should say, knew , given the book’s age.

    One wonders how they feel about incest and the molestation of children?

    • The_Wretched

      They all seem have it as a ‘one of the ways that sin happens’.

    These people are lowering the bar to make people hate religion, not that it was high in the first place. Every question is answered with YOU HAVE TO HAVE FAITH.

    • Friday

      Frankly, for these extremists, that’s in fact a cult tactic to increase the isolation and dependence and control over their own members. Get them to piss off the outside world and then tell them that people are pissed, not because of their assholish actions, but because of their ‘beliefs.’

      • The_Wretched

        cf high cost social signalling and it’s role in group identity. Fraternity/sorority hazing and other ‘traditions’ serve a similar role. I had the misfortune to attend an Assemblies of God wedding and it was one long ritual humiliation of the couple to be wed.

      Not that we need reminding:

      A nonperson is a citizen or a member of a group who lacks, loses, or is forcibly denied social or legal status, especially basic human rights, or who effectively ceases to have a record of their existence within a society (damnatio memoriae), from a point of view of traceability, documentation, or existence.

    They are quoting Jeffrey satinover, another notorious exgay quack.

    If they applied the same standards to religion that they applied to homosexuality. They would be forced to conclude that religion doesn’t exist either.

    Meanwhile, I guess there are just not enough starving children or divorced heterosexuals in the world. They need to apply their time energy, and money to this.

    • Jamie_Johnson

      What, and do something useful for a change?

      • Ben in Oakland

        They prefer to do something useless for change– lotsa change.

    • Uncle Mark

      • clay

        . . . and you’ve seen how they tip at the dinner after church.

        • Uncle Mark

          Don’t get me started. I used to do some pro-bono work for a group of self-righteous, backstabbing S Baptists (way back in my college days). This poor college kid tipped more for a cup of coffee than any of them tipped for brunch…and one couple tried to take their measley 50 cent tip, because they “claimed” I was paying for them too. Cheap-ass fuckers.

  • edrex

    yay! god loves me so much i don’t exist. that’s better than UNconditional love, it’s NONconditional love.

    • Gianni

      In an odd way that makes sense: You don’t exist, but I love you anyway. I guess it has a ring to it because religion sort of teaches the same idea. One is told and taught about God but can’t see, feel, hear, or touch Him yet must love Him to receive His love and blessings. It’s a wonder to me.

  • Rex

    I’m calling off work tomorrow with a case of non-existence.

    From the NBC’s affiliate’s piece:
    “Pastor Caldwell says these flyers are not mean to convince those who have made their mind up about this issue, but instead for those confused about the Christian response.”

    No confusion here. In fact, the only confusion lies with your cartoonish take on sexual orientation.

      because they have to fight against their own demons by pretending to fight against mine.

      Listen for the various strange sounds that spoken Georgian involves.

      PS: If you watch the entire video, you have taken part in an experiment that divides the non-Georgian speaking population into two groups: those who think it’s funny, even though they don’t understand a word except when Ms. Kvirikashvili calls “Ivano!” The other group scratches their heads and wonders what’s going on.

  • PhillyProfessor

    How could they claim to love people they don’t believe exists? Easy. They also claim to love a God that doesn’t exist either. Not much of a stretch, really….

    • Ben in Oakland

      Therefore, I must be god.
      Actually, that’s the punchline that your handsome fellow there would say.

          I should have looked for one of those side launchers. There are different models, and you can use the ones that fire from the side to cover the homes of people you don’t like. Charges will be filed if you do it, but…

          I remember some French Farmers doing it to a local politician or town council in France. Years ago.

    LGBT folks are the last group that bible believers can preach against. Most people now believe that the bible was wrong in condemning folks who divorce and remarry. No one still believes that it is okay to stone to death those who work on the Sabbath, commit adultery, curse their parents or worship Gods other than Yahweh. Everyone now knows that the bible’s support of slavery was wrong. Alas the haters only have us LGBT folks left to condemn. These bible believers have no idea how resilient we are. Bring it on haters. We will not only survive. We will thrive.

    • Paula Key

      Divorce people don’t exist!

  • When they knock on your door and tell you that gay people don’t exist, just say, “Then why are you talking to me? You must be nuts!”

    • Gianni

      And then add, “So f..k off!”

      • “So f..k off in the name of Ja-HEEEEEZ-Zuss-ssa!”

        (You gotta add the “Ja-HEEEEEZ-Zuss-ssa” part, and you can’t say it like “Jesus”, because Pentacostals won’t know who you are talking about unless you say it like a psychotic preacher.)

        • Gianni

          😀 You’re right, I actually just said it that way! 🙂

          • Are you sure? I think maybe more Z’s? Like “Ja-HEEEEEZZZZ-ZZZuss-ssa”? And maybe more emphasis on the ending, like “SSSAA!!” Otherwise it doesn’t take your entire body to say it.
