It Was Inevitable

Posted by Dan Savage on Tue, Sep 28, 2010 at 4:21 PM

A "bible-based response to the It Gets Better Project" was just posted to YouTube...

When Jesus comes back—cough, cough—he should sue his douchebagiest believers for defamation:


"Billy Lucus, who hanged himself, obviously because he was gay, and unable to endure the guilt that the words of others prompted in him. This was indeed a tragedy, but not anywhere near the tragedy that Billy will discover in eternity when he faces the wrath of God upon rebellious and unrepentant sinners. Then, he will realize that his sin could not be atoned for by his own death, and he will realize that people like Dan Savage who encourage sin are deceivers. He will see them for what they are, the blind leading the blind. And he will realize that he has fallen into that ditch that the blind leading the blind inevitably fall into: that's eternal destruction and misery. Sadly, it's too late for Billy. For those who are viewing this video, however, their remains the opportunity of turning from sin to the obedience of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ."

What can you possibly say in response to that kind of hate—the kind of hate that drove Billy Lucas to suicide—besides, of course, "Fuck you and the bible verses you rode in on, you monstrously hateful pile of shit." And, you know, when I listen to a grown man fantasize about a 15 year old boy being tormented in hell for all eternity, three little words pop to mind: John Wayne Gacy. The resemblance in this case is striking.
