Preacher in the Closet, Open Bigot...
This article on CNN stuck out to me today. It is a known fact that Bishop Long, the Atlanta super-church preacher who's been accused of coercing four young men into having sexual relationships with him, has often been a vocal opponent of homosexuality. But his own words have him sounding rather semen happy himself.
In one of his sermons, Long actually said "The word of god is his sperm...The job of the preacher is to bring fresh sperm and when he speaks it, the womb -- the church -- is to take it in and say, 'Sho' you're right.'" Guzzle down some god, all ye faithful. There are many more memorable quotes like this in the article.
This reminds me of a guy in my church growing up who once spoke to the congregation and told us that he often enjoyed "making love to god." He said something about wrapping his arms around himself and rocking himself, and just knowing that god was there loving him. And that's just what I could figure out he said, being all of 10 years old myself. What he said was so shocking and nasty that there was an outrage about how this guy was in charge of the Boys Brigade (the Christian version of Boy Scouts). What baffles me is how the leader of a massive church can talk about god cum and not get called out for being pervy.
