Pastor Sean Harris of Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville, N.C., made quite the stink this week when an audio transcript of one of his recent sermons was made public. In the audio, Harris said, among other vile things, "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?"
Harris was preaching on the sanctity of marriage and the immorality of the homosexual lifestyle.
Harris continued, "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.’"
Needless to say, the internet has not been kind to Mr. Harris. All this just days before North Carolina voters will decide whether or not to adopt Amendment One, which would define marriage as a union between one man and one woman in the state's constitution.
Harris issued an "apology" on his personal blog:
I apologize to anyone I have unintentionally offended. I did not say anything to intentionally offend anyone in the LGBT community. My intent was to communicate the truth of the Word of God concerning marriage.
However, I do not apologize for the manner in which the Word of God articulates sexual immorality, including homosexuality and effeminacy, as a behavior that is an abomination to God.
You can read the entire statement here, but Harris really doesn't do a good job of apologizing for his words.
