Fox News Host Loses His Mind On Gay Rights, Declares Official ‘Jesus chicken’ (Video)

todd-starnes-fox-news-radioIt’s been over two weeks since same-sex marriage was legalized in the United States and God has yet to unleash any sort of wrath on the country for doing so. Then again, I’m not sure why any sane person would expect that to happen anyway. Why would God “unleash wrath” on the United States over something that Canada did over a decade ago?

To be honest, it’s pointless to even bother trying to analyze rational thoughts when we’re dealing with people who are completely irrational.

People like Fox News host Todd Starnes, who over the weekend delivered a sermon at Abilene Baptist Church that was one of the most incoherent word salads I think I’ve ever heard.

After calling Chick-fil-A the “official chicken of Jesus,” he proceeded to just erratically ramble about nonsense ranging from some sort of “war” that’s currently being waged against Christians to praising Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson for comparing homosexuality to bestiality.

“I believe that the reason that God blessed America is because we know how to smoke a pork butt,” Starnes said.

“There is a war on religious liberty!” he continued. “And this war is not targeting people of the Muslim faith or the Jewish faith or the Hindu faith. This war on religious liberty is targeting people of the Christian faith.”

I find comments such as these extremely ironic considering conservatives are, by far, some of the most intolerant individuals in the country when it comes to respecting the various faiths (or lack of faith) of others. Just look at how intolerant they are of Muslims.

But Starnes wasn’t done.

“And it was about that time Phil Robertson, one of my heroes of the faith from Duck Dynasty, did an interview with GQ magazine, and in that interview, Phil Robertson defended traditional marriage,” Starnes stated. “Miley Cyrus, celebrated for her act of debauchery, but Phil Robertson castigated for for standing up for the Bible.”

This sort of stupidity amazes me. It wasn’t the fact that Phil Robertson came out against same-sex marriage that caused a big uproar, it’s that he compared homosexuality to bestiality. There’s a huge difference between saying “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman” and saying same-sex marriage could lead to bestiality.

Oh – but he still wasn’t done.

“God hasn’t redefined anything!” he continued to rant. “If you think the cultural purging of the Dukes of Hazzard had been breathtaking in recent days, wait until you see what they’re about to do to Christians.”

Here’s my prediction: As long as these conservative Christians aren’t trying to force their views on others, or trying to use their religious to discriminate against gay people, absolutely nothing is going to happen to any Christian.

“The time has come for all of us to stand together with one voice!” Starnes concluded. “They may demand to know the content of our prayers, they may try to shut down our bakeries, they may try to silence our voices, but we will not be silenced! We will not be intimidated!”

Again, nobody cares what these people believe. That’s the funny thing about all of this – they seem to really think that the rest of us spend every waking moment of our lives concerned about the nonsense they believe. The only thing the rest of us want is for these people to stop trying to force their views on other people. If someone doesn’t agree with same-sex marriage – great – nobody is forcing that person to marry someone of the same sex.

It’s just comical to me how these people seem to obsess over the personal relationships and sex lives of millions of gay Americans. But I think it’s time they find a new hobby, because same-sex marriage is legal in the United States – and that’s never going to change.

    Todd Starnes is the dumbest tub of goo in America.

    • OMGface

      Tub of goo!!!! I luv this a lot. Cept there are far too many of his ilk. Stupid scary.

  • worrierking

    There’s a very good reason that God hasn’t destroyed Canada, Ireland, Belgium and Argentina for legalizing same sex marriage

    God loves us more.

  • Bonta-kun

    God wouldn’t destroy ‘Murica. He’s sat up on high with a huge-ass bowl of popcorn while He watches shitwits like Starnes do it.

    Fuck a banana. I can’t wait to see that at the end of a 700 Club segment. “Brought to you by Chick-fil-A, the Official Chicken of Jesus!” Yeah – and Monkey Dungeon, official supplier of straitjackets to the Religious Wrong.

    Although I am an atheist myself, I find it odd how quickly liberals attack Christians for their views on homosexuality while ignoring Muslims who stone gays or throw them off rooftops as punishment for their behavior.

    • The dude

      We don’t ignore or condone behavior of the terrorists you speak of. It’s just that the hate and bigotry spewed by the extremist evangelicals is closer to home, and seemingly in our faces and news feeds on a daily basis.

      • OMGface

        Brilliant, dude! And any extremist held blind hostage by the written by humans doctrinaire tenets of any organized religion is a deadly microbe..

    • Jillz

      Liberals don’t attack Christians for their “views” on homosexuality; they attack them for their BIGOTRY toward homosexuals, and their efforts to force the Christian religion down the throats of all citizens by trying to create laws based on their Christian beliefs.

      Since the Muslims who “stone gays or throw them off rooftops” and American Christians who work to prevent homosexuals from having equal rights both justify their actions based on their religious beliefs, there is really not that great a difference between them, other than the severity of the “punishment” they mete out.

      Thunder, I happen to be a Christian and a liberal, so please do not categorize all of us with the yahoos. Personally, I believe that if you accept and strive to live your life as prescribed by Jesus the Christ, then by definition, you have to be a liberal. Listening to this good old boy preaching and telling these people what Jesus likes reminds me that evil comes in many guises. He and the thousands like are nothing more than Bible thumping charlatans

  • FD Brian

    If God didn’t see fit to punish us for killing all the Native Americans and stealing their land, I don’t think he’ll do much about this.

  • Scott Newman

    Responding to the comments from his articles on the foxnews site, kept me entertained for a week. I’m gonna miss them as they finally seemed to have moved on.

  • Feb thirteen

    So what does this guy want to happen? Another Holy War? Sounds like something Satan would say

    “I believe that the reason that God blessed America is because we know how to smoke a pork butt,” Starnes said. “There is a war on religious liberty!” he continued. “And this war is not targeting people of the Muslim faith or the Jewish faith or the Hindu faith.

    Oh how wrong you are super closeted Todd,,, every time you dig into that pork butt, you are declaring war on the Jewish and Muslim and Hindu faith. Its by your words that I have come to this conclusion.
