Here's a great idea:
Take a bunch of men who are already attracted to other men and who, according to stereotype, like to work out a lot, and put them all in a place where for ten years they'll be getting all hot and sweaty in each other's company. Then call it a punishment.
All irony aside, a far right-wing Internet preacher, with an audience of about 10 subscribers, is calling on his followers in a new YouTube video to pressure members of congress to enact a constitutional amendment that will make homosexuality a crime punishable by ten years in prison at hard labor.
Michael Wilson is tired of how American homosexuals are becoming increasingly intolerant of Christian intolerance.
"During the last 40 to 50 years, Christians have become increasingly tolerant of homosexuals. [..]While Christians have become increasingly tolerant of homosexuals, homosexuals have become increasingly intolerant of us," Wilson says. "They've agitated for laws giving them special protections."
Wilson then calls on his legion of followers to take action.
"It's time for Christians to resume obeying God and his word and re-criminalize homosexuality. Outlaw it again," he says in the clip. "The only way to do this and keep it beyond the reach of activist judges is to create a constitutional amendment such as this."
1 - the United States of America is a Christian nation with Judeo-Christian ethics, morals, principles and values.
2 - The practice of homosexuality in the United States of America and in all its territories and possessions, and in all its States, Counties, and Cities shall be a felony punishable by ten years in prison at hard labor.
3 - This Amendment shall take effect the first Sunday after ratification.
Prior to this sermon, Wilson's blog entries have rarely had an audience over three digits. Videos on his Preaching Politics channel have traditionally received roughly 40 views.
When news of this sermon was uncovered by Good As You and subsequently picked up by the Huffington Post and gay news blog sites Towleroad and JoeMyGod, traffic to Wilson's YouTube channel boomed. To date, 9,654 people have watched the video entry "Outlawing Homosexuality" which is roughly 332 times the 29 people who saw his "Good Morals Make Good Laws Sermon."
Comments on the video were predictably negative.
"Is there any way we can outlaw morons like those proposing this incredible garbage?"
"Hey, how about labeling religious fundamentalism as a physiological disorder? It fits the criteria to a tee."
"Damn Michael Williams, could you be any more in the closet?
You talk like a fag and your shit's all retarded."
