Pastor Grayson Fritts of All Scripture Baptist Church (who, get this, was once a police detective) was denied the use of a Cracker Barrel restaurant for a church gathering. The reason for denying him use of the facility was over recent threats the pastor made towards gay and lesbian people.
The threats that Cracker Barrel was referring to, was a sermon made by the pastor to his congregation, and streamed to Facebook.
A sermon in which a minister who is also a sheriff’s detective called for the execution of LGBTQ people has led to an investigation by authorities in Knox County, Tenn.https://www.advocate.com/religion/2019/6/12/tennessee-cop-turned-pastor-urges-execution-gays
Grayson Fritts gave the sermon June 2 at All Scripture Baptist Church in Knoxville, where he is pastor, local TV station WVLT reports.
“The Bible says the powers that be are ordained of God, and God has instilled the power of civil government to send the police in 2019 out to these LGBT freaks and arrest them,” he said in the sermon, which was posted to Facebook. “Have a trial for them, and if they are convicted, then they are to be put to death … do you understand that? It’s a capital crime to be carried out by our government.”
“All the Pride parades, man, hey, call the riot teams, we got a bunch of ’em, get the paddy wagon out here, we got a bunch of ’em going to jail, we got a bunch of them we’re gonna get convicted because they’ve got their Pride junk on and they’re professing what they are, they’re a filthy animal,” he continued.
He was basing his sermon, titled “Sodomite Reprobates,” on the King James Version of the Bible’s book of Leviticus, which says in chapter 20, verse 13, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
What he quoted is in the Bible… it’s why the Bible is evil. But this ignorant pastor glosses over other passages that would condemn himself or others to death.
Did the pastor ever engage in sex outside of marriage, or before marriage? According to the bible that is also worthy of death.
Did anyone in the church get divorced and remarried? According to the Bible that is also worthy of death.
Has anyone in the church ever worked on a Sunday? On no! That too (according to the Bible), is worthy of death in the bible.
