There are plenty of ridiculously dumb fundie pastors out there on YouTube. Any extremist with a webcam and a microphone can put out their disgusting rhetoric.
Say hello to Dave Daubenmire. This Trump-supporting pastor has his own podcast called Pass the Salt. He used to be a high school football coach, but he got sued by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in the late 1990s for mixing too much prayer with his coaching. He talks about “stepping into a culture war” by making his own podcast.
In one recent episode/sermon, he said this about his daughters playing sports:
“Our two daughters played college softball… every time I’d go to the ball games, I kept an eye on my daughters to see if they’d taken the homo bait yet… and they hadn’t.
They didn’t have to because they weren’t cropped-haired wide-bottomed girls. They were pretty girls, godly women, they didn’t take the bait.”
I’m amazed at how much sexism he managed to squeeze into those few sentences. He also managed to squeeze in some lesbian stereotypes as well. He also talks about how the “homosexual agenda” is out there to recruit kids.
This is also the same guy who praised President Donald Trump for winning and sparing us from former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s “spirit of lesbianism.”
The right-wingers even have their own definition of the homosexual agenda. Conservapedia says:
“The Homosexual Agenda is a self-centered set of beliefs and objectives designed to promote and even mandate approval of homosexuality and homosexual ideology, along with the strategies used to implement such.”
Many homophobic right-wingers say things like this about the LGBT community. There is no “gay agenda.” Sports are not going to turn your girls into lesbians. This is evil, toxic fear-mongering that kids should not be listening to.
