Video: The first video of '13 suggesting my life, love, and marriage are controlled by Satan
A congregant asked Pastor Glenn Harvison of Greenwich, Connecticut's Harvest Time Church whether or not he could, in good conscience, attend a gay friend's upcoming wedding. So naturally, this led the theologian to equate people like me with people who are addicted to drugs, slothful, perverted, violent, and generally Satan-lured, with my "rescuable" sexual orientation something that is both "a sign of societal decay" and a "sign of the end of the age." All this before he absolves himself (in his mind) of the considerable harms that his teachings are by telling a story about how he was nice to a lesbian at her deceased partner's funeral.
Clip cued to the pertinent point:
It must be freeing, in a way, to be able to end any conversation about a complex subject matter with a smug "Satan did that!" Freeing for everyone except the countless many tormented LGBT people that this reductive blame game has troubled, denied, and enslaved.
