Pastor Ben Bailey is a man with a vision.
And thank God he’ll never be able to fulfill that vision. According to the Pastor from McMinnville, Tennessee, the reason why society doesn’t stone LGBT people anymore — who he thinks is deserving — is because it’s “liberal.” And in a recent video, the pastor went on a tear, railing against that “liberal society.”
“They were just looking for something liberal”
As the pastor of Central Church of Christ, Ben Bailey has a very important job: fighting the culture wars. Or, in this case, rearranging the deck chairs on the Conservative Titanic called “opposition to gay marriage.”
In a Sunday broadcast for The Gospel of Christ television program, Bailey attacked couples who were looking for churches with “relaxed and liberal views” . . . by which he means views in-tune with the millennium that we live in; quoth Pastor Bailey:
Things like women preaching, women leading in service, where homosexuals and gay marriage were accepted openly.
He continued, “They were just looking for something liberal. Something that didn’t criticize or condemn or didn’t have any hardcore standards on anything — anything goes type of mentality.”
He disagreed, and what followed was a 3:14 long temper tantrum, railing against the modern world for not caring about his religion, and about what God apparently wants:
He has a definite standard and it is not the liberal mindset that we see today. This book [the Bible] does not condone things like women preaching… Paul said I do not let a woman preach of be in authority over a man, that’s not according to the Bible. If I’m out to please God, we don’t find things like that in the Bible.
I’m not out to please god. I don’t care about him or Paul. Paul is indistinguishable from a modern-day MRA troll, and his thoughts mean as much to me. Bailey’s just angry that he’s part of a generation that’s slowly fading into the background static of the universe.
God does not approve of homosexuality or gay marriage. The scripture says… that is vile, unnatural and deserving of a penalty… It’s an abomination that under the Old Testament deserved stoning.”
And so, is our God, the God of Bible, wanting us to go somewhere where it’s liberal, relaxed views and anything goes. No, that’s the effect of a very liberal society. And we need to make sure that such is not the idea or the mindset of God.
Your God, pastor. Even if I did believe in a God, they’d have nothing in common with the theological abortion you worship.
