Iowa: Homophobic misogynist pastor wants to slap woman for objecting to his anti-LGBT activism
Let’s just say that if this bastard touched me, he’d quickly be doubled over and screaming after a swift kick to his “boys.” (Raw Story):
City Church of Burlington Rev. Steve Youngblood had acknowledged wanting to “slap” the woman in his Oct. 7 sermon after she raised objections to fliers that were being distributed at the church on the grounds that it was illegal for tax-exempt organizations to promote political candidates or causes.
The fliers backed the removal of Iowa Supreme Court Justice David Wiggins, one of the justices who joined in a unanimous decision that overturned a law banning same sex marriage in the state. The woman contacted the group Vote Yes To Retain Iowa Supreme Court Justices, which later filed a complaint with the Internal Revenue Service.
In the Oct. 7 Sermon, Youngblood lashed out at the woman, saying that he would “like to slap her” and that her husband should “correct her.” The pastor added that the woman’s actions were “not Christian behavior.”
“What makes me madder is that this person’s husband won’t correct them,” he ranted. “I don’t like rebellious women. I don’t like rebellious men, either. They’re even worse.”
Of course this points out the obvious — homophobia often goes hand-in-hand with misogyny. Bonus points for being a Dominionist. Because this hateful fool was politicking against a candidate from the pulpit, his church faces the wrath of the IRS to lose its tax-free status. I wonder who he’ll slap then?
