North Carolina Pastor, Sean Harris, is making his way around the blogosphere for his horrific rant about how parents should treat their children if little boys act a bit “girly”. He urges parents to hit their kids and even break their bones to avoid losing them to homosexuality.
Sean Harris is senior pastor of Berean Baptist Church in Fayettesville, North Carolina. During his weekly Sunday Sermon, Harris spoke in support of North Carolina’s proposed Amendment 1, which would outlaw same-sex marriage.Written below are excerpts of his hate filled sermon provided by Jeremy Hooper of the blog Good as You. Harris is heard urging his congregation to attack their children if they appear to be exhibiting behavior that might be considered in violation of standard gender roles.
Harris says in his sermon,
“So your little son starts to act a little girlish when he is four years old and instead of squashing that like a cockroach and saying, ‘Man up, son, get that dress off you and get outside and dig a ditch, because that is what boys do,’ you get out the camera and you start taking pictures of Johnny acting like a female and then you upload it to YouTube and everybody laughs about it and the next thing you know, this dude, this kid is acting out childhood fantasies that should have been squashed.Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and crack that wrist. Man up. Give him a good punch. Ok? You are not going to act like that. You were made by God to be a male and you are going to be a male. And when your daughter starts acting too butch, you reign her in. And you say, ‘Oh, no, sweetheart. You can play sports. Play them to the glory of God. But sometimes you are going to act like a girl and walk like a girl and talk like a girl and smell like a girl and that means you are going to be beautiful. You are going to be attractive. You are going to dress yourself up.’”
