Pastor calls to imprison gays for ‘ten years hard labor’ with new constitutional amendment

Pastor Michael V. Williams (YouTube)

A pastor who uses his Internet platform to teach political lessons based on conservative Christian ideology has proposed a constitutional amendment to punish LGBT people for “ten years in prison at hard labor.”

In a video posted to his PreachingPolitics.com website last month that was flagged by the Good As You blog on Monday, Pastor Michael V. Williams asserts that Christians have been “increasingly tolerant” of gay people over the last 50 years.

“Whereas homosexuality used to be a felony in every state — referred to as sodomy — it has now been decriminalized, and homosexuality is allowed to be openly expressed in public,” he notes. “While Christians are becoming increasingly tolerant of homosexuals, homosexuals are becoming increasingly intolerant of us.”

“It’s time for Christians to resume obeying God and his word, and to re-criminalize homosexuality, outlaw it again,” the pastor continues. “The only way to do this and keep it beyond the reach of activist judges and unaccountable bureaucrats is to create a constitutional amendment.”

Williams’ proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution declares that the “United States of America is a Christian nation with Judeo-Christian ethics, morals, principles and values.”

And it decrees that the “practice of homosexuality in the United States of America and in all its territories and possessions, and in all its States, Counties and Cities shall be a felony punishable by ten years in prison at hard labor.”

Williams recommends that his viewers “incessantly” contact lawmakers until they agree to outlaw homosexuality.

“Make such a pest of yourself that they’re willing to do anything just to shut you up,” he advises in the video. “And remember, only vote for those who promise to adopt this amendment.”

“We’re in a fight for survival and only one side can win,” the Internet preacher concludes. “Let’s make sure it’s our side.”

I believe lying should be criminalized.  Anyone who lies publically should be imprisoned for 10 years - the hard labor kind.

To piggy-back on that, I believe that morons who declare publicly that other children of God should be imprisoned because of who they are deserve the same treatment they wish upon those they hate and should be jailed for "crimes against humanity".

As Bugs would say, "What a maroon!"

10 Years in probably excessive.

Unless they leave a kid in a hot car.

 His "new amendment" starts out saying that we live in a Christian nation.

WRONG.

And he can't possibly think intelligent ,caring people will agree with him?

HE IS a maroon!

I'm calling closet gay.

Regardless, he deserves a life sentence hard labor and imprisonment for Felonious Stupidity.

Agree.   How long before his secret boyfriend comes forth to spill the beans?

I'd like to beat him soundly about the head and shoulders with the biggest bible I can lift.  Then I'd like to plunk him down in the Middle East so he can truly see what living in a theocratic country is really like.  Dumbass.
