Paul Rimmer #fundie pinknews.co.uk

Paul Rimmer, a former UKIP candidate, has said that Liverpool FC is cursed by God because the club attended this year’s Liverpool Pride.

He said on Facebook: “From the Bible, Sodomy defiles a Nation. Those who promote it will be punished & vomited out of the Land. In 2012 Liverpool FC sponsored the City’s Gay Pride Parade. Unless they repent they will be under a continual curse.

“Liverpool were amazing last year, but the title was denied them.

“Everyone knows homosexuality is wrong, but now we have to pretend its nice and normal and anyone who points out it’s a perversion is evil. This is a deep moral and spiritual sickness in our nation.”

Mr Rimmer stood as a UKIP candidate in 2011 before being kicked out of the party for having been a member of the BNP. He stood for the English Democrats this year and received 60 votes.

Linda Harvey #fundie pinknews.co.uk

Linda Harvey, a host of the Ohio based Christian radio station WRFD has warned that the passing of same-sex marriage laws might cause Jesus Christ to marry another man.

The Christian radio host this month said that same-sex marriage encourages children to have gay sex and that gay people aren’t human and should therefore not be protected under the US constitution.

Now discussing the fact that under the implementation of same-sex marriage in some states have caused the words ‘bride’ and ‘groom’ to be replaced with ‘person A’ and ‘person B’, the host considers what would happen if Jesus came back to earth.

She began :”On official marriage documents, the words ‘bride’ and ‘groom’ were going to disappear. When advocates of homosexual marriage say how would two men or two women being allowed to marry change your marriage, here’s one way. Nonsense like this starts showing up and the legitimacy of man-woman marriage is automatically on defense against pretenders to the throne.”

She warned: “Homosexuality, far from being marriage, is always a grave sin in Scripture.”

Switching to Jesus, Mrs Harvey said: “A Christian concept that illustrates the unchanging standard of man and woman as the model for marriage: in the New Testament, Jesus is referred to several times as the ‘bridegroom.’ And when he returns, he will return as a bridegroom seeking his bride: the church, which is the body of all believers, also called the Bride of Christ. It’s a beautiful analogy.

“What happens to such a concept in a same-sex marriage? Does Jesus as bridegroom seek another groom? No, that would be a twisted and frankly offensive spin on a profound and marvelous concept.”

She concluded: “As Christians, we must never accept the idea of same-sex marriage. It certainly doesn’t work as sound Christian doctrine and it will be shown before long not to work as revolutionary secular law either.”

American Family Association #fundie pinknews.co.uk

The American Family Association has claimed that by pledging not to discriminate against their customers, Mississippi businesses are ‘bullying’ Christians.

The campaign was born after the state’s Governor, Phil Bryant, signed a ‘religious freedom’ law, protecting businesses who discriminate against gay customers.
The bill prevents authorities from placing a “burden on a person’s right to the exercise of religion”.

Equality Mississippi says in two weeks it has distributed over 500 of the stickers, which state: “We don’t discriminate – If you’re buying, we’re selling!”

AFA spokesman Buddy Smith said: “If you do that, you are agreeing with these businesses that Christians no longer have the freedom to live out the dictates of their Christian faith and conscience.

“It’s not really a buying campaign, but it’s a bully campaign, and it’s being carried out by radical homosexual activists who intend to trample the freedom of Christians to live according to the dictates of scripture.

“They don’t want to hear that homosexuality is sinful behaviour – and they wish to silence Christians and the church who dare to believe this truth.

Benson Hill, president of the Equality Mississippi Foundation, said at their launch: “Through this program, customers will know which companies are dedicated to providing their goods and services to all, without discrimination of any kind.”

Joseph Sciambra #fundie pinknews.co.uk

US gay porn star turned ‘ex-gay’ Christian fundamentalist Joseph Sciambra has recorded a bizarre video where he claims that anal sex causes gay men to give birth to the devil.

In the video, Sciambra who formerly appeared in gay porn for many years says that after finding God, he sought hospitalisation following damage caused to his rectum that meant he had to have his “sphincters almost stitched shut.”

In the video he said: “I’m going to talk about the devil and why he loves anal sex. Anal sex releases into the world rare demonic entities and that even in the body could be conceived as the devil and that would be given birth to anally.

Describing his experiences in the porn industry he said:”There is a definite dark shadow when you are involved with this stuff. I did BDSM bondage porn.”

Warning the viewers of his ministry, Sciambra said :The anus was never designed by nature to accommodate the penis. It just wasn’t meant to be. When you do get involved with that activity it causes a lot of physical damage- I can testify that first hand. When I got out of porn, I started having problems straight away. About two years later, I had surgery, it was horrible I had to have my sphincters almost stitched shut.”

Concluding his video, the former porn star tells viewers about the “spiritual and mental damage that anal sex can do. I do believe that it creates a doorway literally into the demonic, the supernatural.”

Mat Staver and Matt Barber #fundie pinknews.co.uk

Two radio hosts are worried that same-sex marriage will cause straight men to start cheating on their wives with other men.

Mat Staver and Matt Barber, of the Liberty Council, made the comments on the group’s ‘Faith and Freedom’ radio show.
The pair quoted research suggesting that gay men are more likely to have open relationships, and used it to suggest that it would ‘undercut’ fidelity in straight marriages too.

The pair claimed: “Same sex so-called marriage would undercut the norm of sexual fidelity within marriage. One of the biggest threats poses to marriage overall is that it would probably undercut the norm of sexual fidelity in marriage.

“We know this to be the case, a number of studies have shown that for same-sex homosexual males, monogamy isn’t part of the equation.

“We know that women serve to domesticate men.

“That’s not an opinion, that’s the social science that shows that women ultimately bring men into their role as father, as provider, and protector for the household and they domesticate men and that lends itself toward monogamy.”
