Anti-Gay Pastor: Don't Hate Me But Gays Are Possessed By Smelly Demons
Pastor Bert Farias, founder of Holy Fire Ministries, is raising hell this week by way of an article on Christian news site Charisma News Tuesday, where he asked gay people not to "get upset with me" for telling them "the raw, naked truth about homosexuality," saying being gay is a choice and gay people are possessed by "putrid smelling" demons that even pigs won't tolerate.
According to Right Wing Watch, Farias' message comes from a place of love. In the article, called "The Raw Naked Truth About Homosexuality," he said gay people "will see that I am actually trying to help you." He adds that "choosing" to be gay puts one at risk of engaging in "unclean practices that open up a person to the demonic." Once that happens, gays will be controlled by disgusting-smelling demons that even pigs don't want to be around.
"Homosexuality is actually a demon spirit. It is such a putrid smelling demon that other demons don't even like to hang around it," the pastor writes. "A genuine prophet of God told me that the Lord allowed him to smell this demon spirit, and he got sick to his stomach. And yet as humans, many embrace this demon. Yes, you heard me right. Being gay is demonic."
Farias cites a Biblical story in his article, where "Jesus casts out 2,000 demons out of a man. The demons came out screaming and begged Jesus to send them into the pigs. The pigs didn't want them, so they ran down a steep hill and were drowned in the sea. Pigs have more sense than some humans. People embrace homosexual demons, but the pigs would rather die than be possessed with demons."
The pastor goes on to say that, "homosexuality is a sign that a society is in the last stages of decay. And here is another terrible truth: As people continue to reject God, He gives them over to increasingly immoral and self-destructive activities. There are destructive physical, emotional, and spiritual consequences resulting from homosexual behavior."
He concluded: "Our culture's acceptance and celebration of gay behavior will never make it right. Wrong is wrong no matter how many people are for it. And right is right no matter how many people are against it. Homosexuality is not new. It's been around for thousands of years. It's as old as the devil himself."
