Quote# 105232

A pastor at a California-based evangelical church offered up a bizarre suggestion for same-sex marriage supporters in a recent broadcast.

As Right Wing Watch first reported, Skyline Church Pastor Jim Garlow suggested that same-sex marriage supporters should relocate to homes with improper plumbing in a "Point Of View" radio program discussion, in which he also spoke about his participation in a recent Vatican summit.

"All the people who advocate for so-called same-sex marriage ought to have to live in homes in which the plumbers who built them, or the electricians who built them, didn't understand the difference between the male and female end of piping or plumbing or of electrical as well, and see how that works for them," he said.

He then added, "It doesn't work."

The comments are perhaps less surprising given Garlow's history. In 2013, he told the Christian Broadcasting Network that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) couples don't actually have "much interest in marriage."

"There isn’t that much interest in commitment and monogamy," Garlow, who was reportedly instrumental in organizing conservative religious groups to support California's Proposition 8, declared. "It isn’t there ... It’s attempting to force us to affirm a lifestyle."

Previously, he attacked President Barack Obama's policies on healthcare and marriage equality, and predicted that abortion clinics will become "killing center" museums that people will tour in a fashion similar to modern-day tours of Nazi concentration camps, reports Raw Story.

Earlier this year, he suggested that comedian Joan Rivers, who died in September, would go to hell because of her "potty mouth."

Pastor Jim hasn't heard of compression joints. Pretty easy to plumb a metric sink into an imperial house.

"the male and female end of piping or plumbing or of electrical"

Sometimes, a cigar is just a cigar.

Well, if we are talking about plumbing and connections, buttsex should be perfectly fine with that pastor.
Not even going into fingering, fisting and cunnilingus for fear of blowing his mind (and creeping more than a few people out)...

So, now electricians and plumbers built houses.........pray the house doesn't fall to the ground

Doubting Thomas

Because plumbing fittings and human anatomy are totally similar. I guess Pastor Jim is unaware that a penis fits into a rectum just like it does a vagina.

I will let others, more expert in plumbing than me, address the idiocy about plumbing fixtures. All I will say is Da fuck?

Professor von SCIENCE!!!

I really do need to start keeping a log of bad fundie analogies because I swear they're getting dumber.

"In 2013, he told the Christian Broadcasting Network that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) couples don't actually have "much interest in marriage."

Yeah, that's why they've been fighting tooth and nail for the right to get married since... well I don't know how long but it's been a few years anyway.

"predicted that abortion clinics will become "killing center" museums that people will tour in a fashion similar to modern-day tours of Nazi concentration camps"

Do people really do that? Ew.

That analogy doesn't make much sense for those of us whose parents built the entire house. And who continued to be the plumber and electrician.

And here, we have yet another Phelps version taking up the vacuum. Goddess dammit.

I take it that you've had much practice with those pipes eh Jim?

Goomy pls

@Dan Onymous

At least he's even remotely creative. Give him time; eventually he'll come to a conclusion that holds water (nyuk nyuk).

Joan will have fun swearing in hell with General Tommy Franks.

@Scratch. Yes, people tour Dachau and other camps. It's a mandatory trip for many German high school kids.

Potty mouth warrants hell? I am truly forked.

I'm guessing Pastor Jim doesn't know any gay people. Then again, he probably doesn't even see them as people.

Dr. Razark

But people lived in houses for thousands of years without plumbing or electricity, and in some places they still do. Some people in first-world countries choose to live that way even now. What does that have to do with what consenting adults do?

What Indicible said fits Pastor Jim Garlow Required analogy to plumbing.

So again, and always dependable, Stupidity is the order of the day from these idiots.

What does a pastor know about plumbing or electricity? He's never worked a fucking day in his useless life.

US 110v 60Hz - UK 240v 50Hz step-up/down devices.

NTSC - PAL converters.

VGA/DVI - HDMI video cables.

Female - Female & Male - Male HDMI/S-Video/SCART/Composite Video/Audio adapters.

Compression Joints.

A visit to Maplins or B&Q will blow your fucking mind, Jimbo.

And in Soviet Harlem, LGBT people relocate to church.

The ultimate in adaptation, I'd say. >:D
