MN: 'Let us vote' says 'ex-gay' advocate who compared gays to alcoholics, pedophiles, and adulterers

by Jeremy Hooper

With Minnesota Republicans hoping to rush a discriminatory marriage amendment (first Senate hearing this afternoon), the anti-equality side seems to be positioning Pastor Brandon as a voice for the supposed "civil right' of voting on minority rights:

So that being the case, we'd like to offer a reminder:

If you had an uncle who was a drunk and he was destroying
his marriage and he was destroying his life
and he was dying from problems that come along with drinking….
Would you love him to go up to him and say, ‘oh, it’s okay, what you’re doing is alright?’
….no you wouldn’t… But yet when it comes to the issue of homosexuality, all
of the sudden, we have to keep our mouths shut, and
we cannot say anything when it comes to this issue.

-Pastor Brad Brandon
...

On the 17th, the ELCA convenes to vote on whether to allow homosexuals to be clergy.
I mean, to me that’s like asking somebody who is living an open adulterous lifestyle to become
a pastor. To me, that is like asking a pedophile to become a pastor.

-Pastor Brad Brandon
...
We need to preach Christ, the love of Christ, the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
Get These homosexuals saved and get them out of this lifestyle.

-Pastor Brad Brandon
