"Put Homosexuals To The Sword"

The title of this post is the title of an essay by Jim Rudd, editor of Covenant News.

His essay begins with the following sentence:
Civil officials have a God ordained duty to execute sodomites.
What follows is a tirade that sounds remarkably like the folks over at Westboro Baptist Church. There's no possible way I could misrepresent Jim Rudd by stating he has extremist views; I think he would rather appreciate that description and the association with Fred Phelps' clan. Mr. Rudd concludes:
America is a cursed nation (John 7:49) and "defending marriage" does nothing to cut off the curse... The word of God commands that sodomites are to be executed, and God gives our civil officials the sword to do the job. Until our civil officials turn from their wicked way by administering Justice, we can only be judged with the most depraved pagan nations in history.

a quick glance around the covenant news website knows that anything one finds there is going to be extreme...

That's really scary!

This brings to mind the "God hates shrimp" protestors. We are supposed to be killing off the shrimp eaters too.
