Tell me more about how you’re a loving pro-life Christian when you literally threaten the lives of people who don’t share your narrow-minded carefully taught hatred, “Pastor” Mark Burns.
I was raised Jewish and am a devout atheist now, something I’ve had to defend even as churchy people give us plenty of evidence that not only is there no God, but also repression is really bad and so is tax evasion. When you create a cult around the collective’s fear of an invisible Sky Daddy AND you can throw in some hatred while also shaming them for having all of the same basic human urges as all other humans who aren’t in your cult, you’ve got a perfect storm of suppression that usually leads to acting out in the absolute worst ways.The Southern Baptist Church was forced to release a DATABASE full of thousands of pastors and other church members who sexually abused young congregants. You’ve all heard about how abusive the Catholic Church is. All other myths died out when those cultures began grasping science, but somehow the clever men behind the early organized religions figured out a way to keep the Bible myths thriving as a way to grift the poor and scared. And they don’t pay taxes! What a perfect pyramid scheme, because Jeebus. And you can’t tell someone who doesn’t even accept the results of an election that there’s no Sky Daddy, so what to do when the religious Qrazies enter into political races, even though there’s something called SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE that they choose to not pick out among the other cherries when making their too-convenient arguments.

Show me in your Bible where it’s okay to threaten the lives of people who aren’t doing anything more than just living their authentic lives. I will never understand how someone else’s biology is anyone else’s business, and usually, the people who are the most critical about “alternative lifestyles” are the most repressed and jealous of anyone who isn’t living a closeted life of self-hatred like they are. I can’t possibly understand the take from “Pastor” Mark Burns, who is clearly evil and insane. How else to explain that he wants to execute Sens. Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham, along with parents and teachers who support LGBTQ youth? Is that what Jeebus would do, “Pastor”?

“I vote to make sure that those parents be held for child abuse,” Burns said on rightwing The Stew Peters Show of a potential law to punish parents who support their own transgender children and support their choices. “There is no such thing as trans kids, there are only abusive parents who are pushing that evil, evil sexual orientation onto their child’s mind.”
Self-professed “pastor” Mark Burns is a candidate for Congress in SC’s 4th District. His hate, bigotry, and call to “execute” LGBTQIA+ people and supporters, and others, is vile and has no place in America. #Pride #LGBTQ #TransRightsAreHumanRights #LGBTQIA #StopHate pic.twitter.com/f6A5QqVpzk

I don’t really care if you want to be a churchy person who thinks your thoughts regarding your carefully taught faith are actually your own thoughts, but you shouldn’t be threatening the lives of others while you’re preaching to your selected choir. Also, Pastor Mark Burns shouldn’t be allowed to run for office after making threats against Americans, but here in MAGAMurica, he’ll just keep flying under the radar.
