Human stupidity never ceases to amaze me. Well, actually that’s a lie. I am very amazed at how certain religious freaks can use a tragedy, which has nothing to do with religion I might add, and then twists it in such a way as to make it look like it is the gays’ fault. This is exactly what a certain bigoted and homophobic Pastor did in South Africa. This ignoramus blamed Oscar Pistorius allegedly killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Oscar being cursed for supporting gay rights.
On 19 February 2013 Pastor Oscar Peter Bougardt from the Western Cape’s Calvary H.O.P.E Ministries posted the following on his Facebook profile (copied and pasted spelling mistakes and all):
“Oscar Pistorius fell from National Sport Hero to Murderous sport Zero. He was the one who told homosexuals thing will get better for them in South Africa. Oscar was one of those sport stars who supported the filthy lifestyle of homosexuals. After the news broke that he allegedly shot his girlfriend his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentines Day. Barely a week after he was charged with murder, the same homosexual organizations he supported dropped him from Gay youth activities. The same people he supported, dropped him like a hot potato. I believe that Oscar is cursed for openly supporting Homosexuals. According to the Holy Word of God, homosexuality is an abomination to God, and any person who supports homosexuals are doomed for hell. If homosexuals repent and leave their wicked ways, God will forgive them and their dying souls will be saved. God loves us all, but hate it if we sin. God bless you. My prayers are with Oscar and his family, and also Reeva’s family during the time of their bereavement.”
Now I am no theology expert but even the dumbest moron can tell you by reading this Pastor’s diatribe that his claim of Oscar being cursed for being part of the “It Gets Better Campaign” it utter garbage. The gays have been blamed for many things before, mainly natural disasters which according to some US Pastors we are very skilled at causing. But, murder and a curse? Really Pastor Bougardt? Really? Look, I am not an idiot I am thoroughly aware that this Pastor only posted the above declaration to his Facebook profile to ride on the coattails of the Oscar Pistorius murder media circus. To some degree he succeeded. Before he took his post down last night he had already mustered up over 40 shares and over 200 comments on that post. The majority of which were less than flattering or favorable to the Pastor.
During November last year this very same Pastor made other menacing and odious comments on his Facebook page. Comments that I found so disturbing and took such great umbrage with that I ended up reporting him to the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) for hate speech. The SAHRC is still investigating the matter on my behalf but yesterday I contacted them again and added the Pastor’s latest poisonous words to my existing complaint. Evidently, the Pastor is so secure in his hateful stance on the LGBT community that he thinks he is immune to the law and can do and say whatever he wants and trample on other people’s human rights and dignity. He is so delusional that he thinks it is acceptable to take a tragedy and manipulate facts in order to queerly blame it on the gays and slander a man accused of murder.
In the Pastor's initial response to the SAHRC he blamed me personally for him being attacked verbally and being threatened by homosexuals not only in South Africa but internationally as well. He blamed me for the negative reaction he gets whenever he posts flagrant homophobic statements and make sweeping and unsubstantiated statements about homosexuality on Facebook. He blames me as if I have a gay hotline to the world with which I rally the international gay community against him. Clearly this man is so baked in the head that he has lost touch with reality. Perhaps he is losing his mind from suppressing his own homosexual tendencies. Only he will know.
In conclusion, I actually just have one thing to say to this obtuse and deluded Pastor. Go fuck yourself! I and the rest of my LGBT abominations will continue to fan the flames of our faggotary. We are queer and we are here and there is nothing, NOTHING you can do about. So please take that “Word of God” that you so recklessly wave around and use to justify your own prejudices and phobias and shove it up your ass. Shove it up there real good. Seeing as you are so obsessed with gays and gay sex, maybe some ass play will help you relieve all that tension and angst you so clearly suffer from. Or just do the world a favor and just come out of the fucking closet already!
Till next time.
