And I pray that Linda Harvey becomes "a former carbon-based life form".
 
2013-03-28 09:27:19 AM
Here's the question: does she mean former as in 'please God make him like vaginas', or former as in 'please God, make him dead so this Republican Senator goes back to being a solid vote against gay marriage'?

They've been trying to pray the gay away for years.  Does it work or do they think it will work eventually?
 
2013-03-28 09:28:26 AM
Not saying it should be, but it could be construed as a death threat.

And just last night sister I wished that I could be drowning in a river of warm chocolate with thirty whores blowing me while my man servants took care of my every need in my billion dollar mansion requisite with car elevator.

But that shiat ain't gonna happen, so take your sky fairy dreams and go fark off.

Good for her. Every second she wastes on something that can't possibly have any impact on anything ever is a second she's not actively harming innocent people by actually applying her malicious hatred of others for no reason.

You just sit there and babble quietly to yourself for as long as you like you silly little nutter you.
 
2013-03-28 09:31:10 AM
Let us know how that turns out for ya, lady.
 
2013-03-28 09:31:48 AM
If you have to beseech and grovel before your God before He will take Action, He is not exactly omnipotent, is He?
 
2013-03-28 09:32:58 AM
I'm going to pray that Linda Harvey bursts into flames, hopefully while surrounded by all the people that misguidedly love her. Burn in the flames of your misguided love. BURN.

I am going to pray Jesus does not see his shadow when he comes out of his cave this weekend and sticks us with 4 more weeks of winter.

Bloody William: Not saying it should be, but it could be construed as a death threat.


No it really can't. She does say that he could get married after he becomes a former gay. The dead can't marry. At least not in most jurisdictions.

"I was married. For two years. Yeah, I mean, she was a lesbian, but still. We met in a "Pray Away the Gay" Bible group. That was a pretty weird time for me. "

Epicurus, winning since 33 A.D., etc.

That's not how praying works. She needs to ask for something indirectly. Like, "Dear Jesus, could you please see to it that penises taste like burnt popcorn or something icky to Senator Rob Portman's son." That way he ends up naturally having an aversion to getting spit roasted and hopefully that will lead into a total aversion to sweet, sweet penis.

Marcus Aurelius: If you have to beseech and grovel before your God before He will take Action, He is not exactly omnipotent, is He?


No, He's still omnipotent. It's just that He's also a complete dick.
 
2013-03-28 09:40:29 AM
And who is she to question God's will?  How can you, as a proper Christian, pray to god to change that which he has made in his own image?
 
2013-03-28 09:42:07 AM
I wish Portman's son would call into her show. Maybe even waste her entire show having her pray for him and do whatever it is they do to try and "un-gay" someone. Then at the very end of the show he can just go "nope, still gay!" and laugh and laugh at her.

God answers every prayer. It's just that sometimes he says "no".

Become a "former" homosexual? She's praying for his death? Wow, that's real Old Testament hardcore wrath there.
 
2013-03-28 09:46:32 AM
Praying the gay away sure does work. Just ask Marcus Bachmann.
 
2013-03-28 09:46:58 AM
I know faith is full of logical holes anyway, but I seriously question th einner workings of Christians who pray to ask for things.

This kind of former?

More of an AW, I think -- "Yeah, I can turn him straight, of course I could.  But first, tell me you really like me."

"Because his own son is involved in homosexuality, Sen. Portman has rationalized away his former objections to same-sex marriage; he now says he wants the same opportunity for his son," said Harvey.

No, he only had objections in the first place because of mouth breathing harpies like you that are allowed to vote. Like all conservatives, they don't give a fark about anyone until it directly benefits/impacts them directly.
 
2013-03-28 09:48:07 AM
Am i supposed to know who any of those people are?
 
2013-03-28 09:50:52 AM
Why, does she fancy him?
 
2013-03-28 09:52:35 AM
I'm OK with this... since praying does not work.

"After all, he made us all to be just like him. So if we're dumb, that means God is dumb. And maybe even a little bit ugly on the side!"

Or, like many conservatives, he realizes that opposition to gay marriage -- and gay rights in general -- is increasingly a losing position, and this was a good way to ditch it without having to say it's a political calculation.

This is the same twunt who just last year was claiming the 14th Amendment did not apply to "gays" because they do not fit the definition of "person" because people are not "naturally" homosexual, therefore their disqualified for protection under the Constitution.

Metaluna Mutant: Become a "former" homosexual? She's praying for his death? Wow, that's real Old Testament hardcore wrath there.


Maybe she could  offer the position of "Gay Emeritus." That sounds classier & less threatening.

Linda Harvey write for WingNutDaily (a noted publisher of racist and homophobic hate propaganda). That puts her (and all of her views and opinions) squarely in the center of mainstream Republican "thought". Therefore, all Republicans (members of a noted group of racists and homophobes) believe exactly the same things that Linda Harvey believes.

Eh, fundamentalists are supposed to pray for everything. "I'll pray for you" has many meanings: it can be a show of support, a threat of divine punishment when they can't win an argument, or simply a way of of saying "Fark off, I'm not going to do anything to help you in any tangible sort of way."

I left a fundamentalist cult years ago, and based on the way they prayed for others while I was there, I'm sure many nasty things were prayed on my behalf after I left: That God would send whatever hardship or misery was necessary to bring me back and make me forget everything I had learned about the outside world - that God would cause me to be unsuccesful in my career, or make my relationships fail, or strike me with disease - just as long as it was for the greater good of saving my soul. I'm sure that people still pray those things on occasion. However, like the guy said, once you realize that prayer doesn't work, it really doesn't bother you anymore.

It's when they start doing things other than praying that you need to worry.

And now you know....

the REST of the story.

This just made me think of the dead parrot sketch from Monty Python.

Perhaps she wants him to be tired and shagged out after a long squawk?

I've been of the opinion for a while now that Calvinism is probably the most self-consistent theology out there, but people reject it because they can't handle the implications. (I.e., that God is more arbitrary and narciscistic than a human can even comprehend.)
 
2013-03-28 10:38:59 AM
It's like when you catch your kid with a cigarette... Take him out behind the woodshed and make him smoke the entire pack of pole. That'll put him off of it.

/isn't that pretty much how the ex-gay camps go in practice?

Can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not; however, if it is part of the GOP platform and it is wrong then yes they are all guilty for supporting the platform.
 
2013-03-28 10:59:51 AM
Would that be like a former Marine?
 
2013-03-28 11:17:35 AM
And I'm praying that Linda Harvey learns to stop being an ass.
 
2013-03-28 11:37:17 AM
How about she pray for her God to make her a more tolerant human being, you know- like Jesus

Hah! You just called her god gay...
 
2013-03-28 11:58:31 AM
And I pray that a lesbian puts a horsetailed plug up Linda Harvey's rear and rides her like the bad horsie she is

/Like that one video I downloaded
 
2013-03-28 12:05:55 PM
PRAY HARDER!!

/I think its working... keep trying... I'm sure you're almost there...
 
2013-03-28 12:06:15 PM
shiat in one hand.
Pray for a cure for homogaysexiness in the other.

See which one fills up faster.

/eeewwww

Linda Harvey recently slammed Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) for changing his mind on gay marriage and supporting his gay son, which she called "a betrayal of the first order."

These people are fkn sick.  Changing your mind on gay marriage is more of a betrayal than not supporting your son and the person he loves?
