not so much Alabama, as AlaBARMY

Aaron Fruh Gay Marriage

A right-wing pastor has come to Chick-fil-A’s defense, not only applauding the Atlanta-based fast food company for its anti-gay stance but also claiming that same-sex marriage brought about the great flood referenced in the biblical narrative of Noah’s ark.

Aaron Fruh, a pastor at Knollwood Church in Mobile, Ala., spoke out against marriage equality on American Family Radio, challenging listeners to “find any society in human history that ever tried that experiment [of same-sex marriage] and lived to tell about it, they’ve all been destroyed,” according to Right Wing Watch.

Identifying the “society just prior to the flood of Noah” as the only one prior to the present to offer same-sex marriage, Fruh went on to note, “God knew that the people on the earth were going to destroy themselves through same-sex marriage, and so that’s why he brought the flood.”

Like former GOP candidates Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee, Fruh also defended Chick-Fil-A President Dan Cathy’s controversial Baptist Press and “Ken Coleman Show” remarks, which have since been condemned by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights advocates nationwide.

“As Dan Cathy said, we’re shaking our fist in the face of God,” Fruh said.

 

((When the California Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage equality in 2008, one rabbi claimed that the sin of homosexuality is so egregious that it caused God in the times of Noah “to annihilate the world and start from the beginning.”)

  1. Owain Jones: Loved this, from the Baptist website: “Based on Matthew 5:41, Cathy is on a mission to provide customers with “second-mile” service — exceeding even the highest expectations of a typical fast-food restaurant.”

    Well based on some of my recent fast food experiences, all I can say is: “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.” (Revelation 3:16)
