Oh those crazy (and I mean fucking insane) KKK-ristians!
Pastor Rex Cornwell, of the Bossier Church of Christ in Bossier, Louisiana showed his loving KKK-ristan nature when he put up a handmade anti-LGBT sign on his front lawn. Why did he put up such a hateful sign? He learned that his neighbors – two women he’d previously been friendly with when he thought they were just roommates – were actually a married, same-sex lesbian couple.
The sign features a hand painted rainbow flag with a ‘Stop’/’No entry’ sign overlaying it, along with the wording: “God forbids homosexuality, so should we.”
Lynda Slimer one of the women involved posted to Facebook page after seeing the sign for the first time:
“This is the sign that my wife and I and our 2 daughters came home to today. This is a sign filled with hate and biblical mistranslations that is meant to make my family and I scared and uncomfortable in our own home.
This is the sign we come home to in the yard of the Pastor who lives across from us, whose church website states “Everyone is welcome”. We’ve lived here a year, I’ve baked them cookies, invited them into our home and introduced them to our family.
They have waved to us as they come and go and we have talked about the weather. They’ve told us if we ever need anything to just come knock on their door. All thrown out the window because they realized that we are wives and not roommates. This is not a representation of God. Jesus would not do this.”
After reading Lynda’s Facebook post other neighbors and members of the community held an impromptu peaceful protest in front of Pastor Cornwell’s house. Two dozen people showed up and held up rainbow signs saying ‘Love is Love’, ‘Love Thy Neighbor’ and other messages.
Pastor Cornwell was unmoved.
In an interview he told told CBS affiliate KLFY:
“Homosexuality is condemned. It’s an anathema that means something horrible. We’re just simply taking a stand against the homosexual movement as well as other kinds of sins. So what we do is we’re going to pray for them. We’ll show them the kind of love that Jesus showed, but we can’t back down either. So we have a responsibility to stand up [for] the word of God.”
Shortly after the report on KLFY News Pastor Cornwell put up a second sign on the lawn in front of his house that says ‘Smile at the camera’, put there to dissuade REAL Christians from taking down his hateful sign.
