Monday night the brilliant writers at The Daily Show offered a classic takedown of right-wing evangelicals who claim gay and lesbian activists bully and even beat up Christians and straight people.
“The Christians that I talked to are intimidated,” Idaho pastor and radio host Matt Slick tells Samantha Bee of The Daily Show. “They’ll often get intimidated, they’ll often get persecuted … for just saying that they believe that homosexuality is wrong, or that homosexuals are sinful — just like adulterers, just like pedophiles, just like liars, just like thieves.”
Slick even claims gay people “go out and find straights to beat up” and asks why the media doesn’t cover that kind of violence. The reaction and questions from Bee are a must see. Check it out.
