Gay Marriage is Wrong Because...So Is Incest?

I’ve been wandering through some of PastorJer777’s videos on YouTube and came across one entitled Gay Marriage is Wrong! It’s a catchy title, so I decided to hear good ol’ PastorJer’s reasons for his being against gay marriage. I figured it must have something to do with the Bible, what with Jer being a Pastor and all. I just didn’t realize that Bible stories related to hospitality and incest proved that gay marriage was wrong. Go figure, huh? I’m learning something new all the time. 

Here’s a picture of Jer. He loves driving around in his car while making his videos. He also loves hats. He even wears hats in the house while he’s making videos. Slightly weird, I know, but he does it nonetheless. 

In this video, PastorJer777 feels “inspired by the spirit to take a stand for the church concerning gay marriage.” The church should stand for what is right and gay marriage is wrong. 

Jer says, “From the beginning, it has been man and woman, not man and man or woman and woman. There is no way in the world that two men or two women can be fruitful and multiply and that is what God said to Adam and Eve in the beginning. Gay marriage is wrong. That is the truth.” 

Now, I don’t know why God told Adam and Eve that two men or two women can’t be fruitful and multiply. It’s not as if they had any choice in partners at the time. Apparently, however, it’s the truth that God told them. I think He could have held onto that speech until he created some gay people though, don’t you? 

Then, PastorJer provides some Biblical proof for his stand. “God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for the sins of homosexuality. I want to read something to you in first Corinthians, chapter five. It says that it is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and such sexual immorality is not even named among the Gentiles. That a man has his father’s wife. Now, if Paul was hot under the collar because a man had his father’s wife, what would Paul say about two men getting married or two women getting married? I think that he would say that it’s an insult to the way that God created man and woman to be. A man was found sleeping with his mother, and Paul judged it wrong and said turn that person over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh that his spirit may be saved in the day of judgment.” 

I kid you not. Jer went from Sodom and Gomorrah, with no further explanation, into Paul sending someone to hell for incest. And this is his proof for gay marriage being wrong! I was awestruck. Aren't you awestruck? Okay, maybe it’s just me. So I wrote the following comment: 

Sodom and Gomorrah was a story about hospitality, not homosexuality. The word sodomy was not in that story until the KJV [King James Version]. Then you use a story about incest being wrong to prove that homosexuality is wrong. You're arguing apples and oranges. What I find really interesting is that you use Lot's story first, which ends in incest with his daughters (but you don't mention that), and then a different story about incest. You then equate incest with homosexuality. Your argument doesn't stand up.”

But, alas, no comment back from PastorJer777.

Ya know, God could have made it so that men could be fruitful [excuse the pun] with men, and women fruitful with women, as well as his Garden of Eden standard variety Adam plus Rib-Girl combo pack.

After all, God is omnipotent, so He can do whatever the hell [oops!] He wants. Since He's also omniscient, He also must have known that He was going to create fruitier variety packs.

He's omnipresent so that he can be everywhere looking at all of those.

I think that he was planning to keep the population down, just in case Adam and Rib-Girl ate from the Tree of Life. If immortal humans set about begetting, then the world would soon be standing-on-one-another room only.

Even though God banished Adam and Rib-Girl for falling for God's herpetic trick, their begotten have begotten too many descendents. That's why God created the people who invented contraception. That's why He is (shhh!) very angry at the Pope.

Great comments. You're right - God is very angry, very angry indeed.

There's nothing better than a good stack of Rib-Girls. ;-)

Just remember, apples are not the only fruit!

Gotta love your sense of humour, O.

Heck, God's been angry for 3,000 years, by all accounts. Not by His accounts, because we know that He didn't write those darned books, or miscopy all those manuscripts.

Well stacked Rib-Girls? With honey garlic sauce?

Are we talking apples and oranges here?

Oriented x4 said...

That's what I don't understand. Why do people want to worship an angry vengeful God? (Rhetorical question.) And being a fruit is not a choice since God created them in the Garden of Eden, which would make Adam the first fruit eater.

Well stacked Rib-Girls with Fruity Sauce, of course. Yeah! ;-)

Apples, oranges, peaches, pairs (I mean, pears).

Adam the First Fruit Eater - now there's an honour to be remembered! I think that this indicates that Fruity sauce would go well with Adam on a bun.

I still think that honey garlic sauce would be appropriate with Rib-Girls.

To each their own sauce, I always say.

You know, I've never been partial to pears, but I might just reconsider.

Adam on a bun. :-) Cute.

You could have well-stacked Rib-Girls with both Fruity sauce and honey-garlic sauce. Sort of bi-flavored, for those who swing both ways.

I thought you liked pairs, um, pears. I keep making that mistake. Peaches are very good too. "I could eat a peach for hours." Nicholas Cage in Face/Off.

So, after the fruit incident, God came down from heaven, very, very angry, and asked Adam, "What are you doing wearing that bun?"

How about fruity honey sauce? That might satisfy all tastes. Babes Sauteed in Fruity Honey Sauce, to add a suggestion to a recent video about cook books.

A pear in the hand is worth two ....

I forget the rest, but you probably know what I mean.

Ha ha! Good use of Nick Cage lines.

Oriented x4 said...

Well, Adam would have been "embarrassed and that." But then God saw that there were actually two and said, "Great set of buns, Adam."

Fruity honey sauce sounds good. Rack of Fruity Honey Rib-Girls, finger-licking good.

A pear in the hand is worth another in the bush?

Here I was thinking that you might come back with, "We definitely need a bigger bun!" However, judging by the paintings of Adam and Eve, they could have managed to cover Adam with a Triscuit.

That's rather like the metaphor that I vaguely remember -- something about birds, anyway.

Goh-l-e-e, I never knew that fruit could sound so appetizing!

I'm still rather partial to a nice juicy, sweet, fuzzy peach. And cherries - I love cherries.

Fruit salads are good. The more fruits, the merrier. :-)

Mmmmm, fruit cocktails are good too.

Yes, there's nothing better than lots of fruits.

I forgot to add the advice to, "Be fruitful and don't multiply!"

6.5 billion is more than enough.
