North Carolina pastor retracts sermon remarks about punching gay kids

Link to Article

A Fayetteville, North Carolina, pastor has retracted controversial language used during a weekend sermon in which he instructed parents to hit children who exhibited behavior associated with homosexuality.  "The second you see your son dropping that limp wrist, you walk over there and crack that wrist," Harris said in the Sunday sermon. "Man up. Give him a good punch."  "You’re not going to act like that," the pastor advised parents to tell their children. "You were made by God to be a male and you are going to be a male.”

"It is unfortunate I was not more careful and deliberate,” the paster conceded after being called on his invitation to Gay bashing.

Translation – I still mean what I said, but I wish I had said it more artfully and used more code words so as to throw off the liberals.

Update:  the pastor now says that that he meant to say "shove" rather than punch.  Much better.
