Baptist Pastor Roger Jimenez appears to feel good about the TERRORIST shootings in Orlando, FL over this past weekend killing 50 people and injuring many more. Jimenez is a Baptist pastor in Sacramento, CA and he is now under fire for delivering a fiery sermon praising the slaughter of those killed in an Orlando gay nightclub, The Pulse, this past Sunday. He delivered his insensitive sermon just hours after the TERROR ATTACK. In that sermon he told his congregation, “Hey, are you sad that 50 pedophiles were killed today? No…I think that’s great! I think that helps society! I think Orlando, Florida’s a little safer tonight.” Pastor Jimenez went on to tell his congregation, “It is unnatural for a man to be attracted to another man!” And he added, “The tragedy is that more of them didn’t die!”. During this fiery sermon Jimenez cited passages from the Bible including Judges 19:22, Genesis 4:1, and Romans 1:27. And this brings me to this………………..
For a long, long while now I’ve been thinking about the differences between radical CHRISTIANS and radical Muslims. Frankly, the only difference I see is that the radical Muslims have taken up arms and murder as a passion while the radical Christians have not yet done so. Radicalism is always INSANE in my book no matter if it be in religion, politics, or anything else. Radical Christians are just as dangerous as radical Muslims IMO because they BOTH are highly judgmental and condemning (which are two things the BIBLE speaks AGAINST btw). Some people in this nation have been radicalized by Islam BUT far MORE people in this nation have been radicalized by radical Christianity and that is a FACT! Frankly, my personal belief is that these people, radical Christians, are just waiting to snap as the radical Muslims have already! Jimenez in my opinion is one of these radical Christians. A man filled with HATE which the Bible also speaks against.
Judges 19:22 cited by this pastor says speaks of a Levite and his servant. The Levite was traveling from Bethlehem in Judah to his home in the mountains of Ephram. He complained to a man he met that no one had invited them in their homes during his travel but said he, his servant, a slave woman with them, and his animals didn’t need anything anyway. The man he met invited him to rest at his home and warned him not to spend the night in the city square. The man took him up on his offer and stayed at the home for the night. While they were enjoying themselves in the evening some wicked men came to the home pounding on the door demanding the homeowner bring the travelers out so that the wicked men could have sexual relations with them. So where men gay OR were they just drunken lunatics wanting sex with anything? Likely the later IMO.
Jimenez also cited Genesis 4:1 which speaks of Adam and Eve and tells how Adam had sex with Eve and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain. Of course, Cain later killed his brother Abel and was banished from Adam and Eve. So what does this have to do with homosexuality? Absolutely NOTHING! Jimenez also cited Romans 1:27 says, “In the same way, men stopped having natural sex and began wanting each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and in their bodies they received the punishment for those wrongs.” (New Century Version)
Of course then there is the matter of David laying with Jonathan in the field and “knowing him” which is a code word for having sex! Wonder why Jimenez didn’t mention that? But this is another topic…….
What gets me most is that this Baptist Pastor is rejoicing in the death of the 50 innocents in Orlando. Where is the love and forgiveness JESUS CHRIST preached and spoke about? Where is the compassion for others he spoke of so often? How in the Name of Christ can this “pastor” be so merciless and incompassionate? To rejoice in ANY death of ANY human being is SIN in my book but, then again, I am NOT a radical Christian or radical Muslim. So what separates the two? NOT A LOT apparently. And Jimenez proved it Sunday! In fact, he sounded like one of those radical Muslim clerics I see on the News! Hmmmm…………………………….. all I can say is that Pastor Jimenez SHOULD be ASHAMED of himself but I’m sure he’s not.
Wonder if this is What JESUS would do as Jimenez did???? And btw there is no proof whatsoever that gay people are pedophiles!
