Jackass of the Week: Pastor Dillon Awes

LGBTQ Nation reports that Pastor Dillon Awes delivered an insane sermon suggesting all gay people should be killed.

Dillon alleges the answer to the ‘gay people’ is in the Bible:

They should be lined up against the wall and shot in the back of the head.

“Every single homosexual in our country should be charged with the crime, the abomination of homosexuality, that they have,” he continued. “They should be convicted in a lawful trial. They should be sentenced with death.”

In his Sunday sermon, which took place during the first week of Pride month, Awes alleged that all gay people are pedophiles and that all child molesters are gay. He argued that it is for that reason they should all be killed.

The Stedfast Baptist Church in Hurst, Texas, has been designated as an anti-LGBT hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

So, Awes is arguing that these individuals who haven’t committed any civil crime be tried in a court, convicted, and killed because they violate Awes interpretation of a Bible verse. Okay, maybe that explains why the younger generation is abandoning the Christian church.

When a Christian Church is designated as a hate group, you know something is fucked up.

Jackass of the Week Nomination

Kansas state representative from, Republican Cheryl Helmer, said she does not “appreciate the huge transgender female who is now in our restrooms in the Capitol,” obviously referring to her colleague, Rep. Stephanie Byers, the first transgender legislator in Kansas, and a Democrat.

Helmer, from Mulvane, responding in an email to a University of Kansas graduate student, saying she was a biology major in college, said that she knows “the difference biologically between a male and a woman.”

…”no surgeon can cut, remove, wop, add to change the biology that is chemically occurring in each and every fiber, bone and molecule of every human being.”

I used to think people who made statements like those by Helmer were simply stupid. Now I think they’re just hateful.

“A doctor can inject meds and dilute but cannot destroy what God has done in the perfection of the HUMAN BEING, Helmer added. We as women have humans that are much larger, stronger, more adrenaline and testosterone and therefore possibly more dangerous and we have to share our restrooms. Not only that but our wee little girls in elementary and middle and high school are having to be exposed and many have been raped, sodomized and beaten in the restrooms by these supposedly transgenders who may or may not be for real.”

I think Helmer has gone out of her way to contradict herself. Whatever/whoever created Helmer (Mom and Pop Helmer?) clearly goofs up on occasion.

Just how hateful must your community be to elect someone like this to office?
