Quote# 87239[North Carolina Pastor instructs congregants to beat children who act outside of gender norms.]
So your little son starts to act a little girlish when he is four years old and instead of squashing that like a cockroach and saying, 'Man up, son, get that dress off you and get outside and dig a ditch, because that is what boys do,' you get out the camera and you start taking pictures of Johnny acting like a female and then you upload it to YouTube and everybody laughs about it and the next thing you know, this dude, this kid is acting out childhood fantasies that should have been squashed.
Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and crack that wrist. Man up. Give him a good punch. Ok? You are not going to act like that. You were made by God to be a male and you are going to be a male. And when your daughter starts acting too butch, you reign her in. And you say, 'Oh, no, sweetheart. You can play sports. Play them to the glory of God. But sometimes you are going to act like a girl and walk like a girl and talk like a girl and smell like a girl and that means you are going to be beautiful. You are going to be attractive. You are going to dress yourself up.'

I once managed to get my brother into a dress when I was a kid and it hasn't done him any long term damage.

I wanted to have long hair when I was a little child, so I would have probably been assaulted if I was your child. Also, I have always fucking sucked at any sport I tried and have always been more into art and music.
How did I turn out? 100% heterosexual. And these days, I do wear long hair down to my waist and look like a fucking bearded viking... so what was your point again?
And even if I had turned out to be the supreme gaylord of the universe, there wouldn't be anything wrong with it. Also, the most effeminate guys I've met were also mostly heterosexual.

What a despicable excuse for a human being.

1 count of child abuse and 1 count of hate crime in just 1 act.

He's a sociopathic bigot. What else is new?

Gender 'norms' are a far newer concept than asshole goldfish like this care to believe. Fucking Cracked.com knows that, and they're a joke site.

Well, the original Olympics had a religious element to it, but I doubt this so-called man of God meant anything so noble.

@#1400926: no need.
The live clip of him saying this made Anderson Cooper's Ridiculist on CNN, right along with an interview with him in which the pastor acts shocked that anyone actually dares think he meant for parents to abuse their children. Surprise surprise.

someone doesn't realize that some gay men are very macho and some gay women are very fem
IDK, how about we punch kids when they start with the invisible friend nonsense...
OR we could not punch kids for any reason and just punch adults in funny outfits that pretend to talk to invisible people and think they have the right to give parenting advice

"YO! Hey there!, Harris! Oh, yeah, like we're all 'femmy' & stuff...NOT! Come over to my big den with my hairy, burly, fat & muscley guy pals & tell it to our faces! HAW HAW HAW! But if you stop being a homophobic douchenozzle & start being a REAL 'Real Man' we can hang at the bar & watch the game or somethin'! Of course, since you're into rearranging little one's faces, we'll rearrange yours, okay?"
"Hello! I'm a Lesbian! Don't you think I'm pretty? And you can't have ANY of me! Nyah! Where's my dress?"

I don't know what's worse: That he said this, or that people will agree to him.

When she is 5 years old: "You are going to be attractive. You are going to dress yourself up."
When she is 25 years old: "Well, you should have known better than to walk around looking like that."

Yeah, bub. Break your son's wrist and punch him, so that he grows up into a big strong man, and that way, one day, when your're a shrivelled up old geezer, he can break your wrist and punch you.

"You are going to be beautiful..." Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Beautiful =/= a (barely) living Barbie clone!
