This man is a douchebag. I was out running errands just now and was flipping around on the radio and came across his show.
“Christian talk radio!” I thought. “Yippee!”
The douchebag, Buster Wilson, was talking gay rights and since that’s a point of passion with me, I hung out and listened.
Poor Buster is terrified, my friends. He is terrified of the coming Gay Marriage Apocalypse. He sees it as a free for all: man marrying man! Woman marrying woman! Man marrying men! Woman marrying women and some men! Two men marrying a cat! Cows and sheep mingling! Horse and donkey in the same pasture! Ahhhhhhh!
He says, and I quote, “There has to be restrictions or anything can and will happen.”
Then, after this, he took calls from people who have been persecuted for being judgmental dipshits. “Oh, Buster, whenever I stand up for marriage ‘purity’, people are mean to me! They are discriminating against me! Boo fucking hoo!”
He is part of the AFA, a group recently classified as a hate group for the fact that it hates homosexual people. It should be allowed to continue to spew its invective, though. Hate speech should be the most passionately defended form of speech, along with the speech that counters it.
What annoyed me the most was him saying that there is a “Christian reason” for opposition to homosexuality, which there isn’t. Jesus didn’t say a word about it and the other three references to it in the NT are dubious at best.
There’s a passage in Romans many anti-gay people point to. It goes like this: “These men deliberately forfeited the truth of God and accepted a lie, paying homage and giving service to the creature instead of to the Creator, who alone is worthy to be worshiped for ever and ever, amen. God therefore handed them over to disgraceful passions. Their women exchanged the normal practices of sexual intercourse for something which is abnormal and unnatural. Similarly the men, turning from natural intercourse with women, were swept into lustful passions for one another. Men with men performed these shameful horrors, receiving, of course, in their own personalities the consequences of sexual perversity.”
The thing you need to know about this passage is that IT WAS NOT SAID BY JESUS, but Paul, who himself admits is simply a man. Second, a few lines later, Paul says this: “Now if you feel inclined to set yourself up as a judge of those who sin, let me assure you, whoever you are [including me, Paul], that you are in no position to do so. For at whatever point you condemn others you automatically condemn yourself, since you, the judge, commit the same sins.”
Obviously, Paul is just a dude because on the one hand he is judging certain sexual practices and on another saying he shouldn’t be doing that. Yeah, we can discount what he says here. Hell, he does so himself.
So this Buster guy is a real dick and doesn’t even understand his own religion.
Nietzsche was right. God IS dead, and has been since the beginning of the Industrial Age. I contend that the most atheistic people currently around are in fact today’s Christians. They have so completely lost their faith that they have replaced religion with political ideology. Pretty sad if you think about it.
