Texas Pastor Who Vowed To Set Himself On Fire Over Gay Marriage Now Says He Didn’t Really Mean It

Texas Pastor bon fire


Texas “Pastor” Rick Scarborough, the “Christian” who vowed to set himself and become a human smores maker if same-sex marriage became the law of the land has issued a statement reneging on his first comment declaring, “We do not support any violence or physical harm.” 

Scarborough issued a statement to  KFYO News just hours after the Supreme Court decision.

“I made that comment to paraphrase a spiritual song, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in which the three were given a choice—to bow to the image of Nebucahdnezzar or burn in a furnace,” said Scarborough.”‘We will burn’ means that we will accept any sanction from the government for resisting [Friday’s] Supreme Court decision. We do not support any violence or physical harm.” 

Some people just have no integrity.

 Now what the hell am I going to do with all these marshmallows?
