I really only wanted to write a diary with a punchy headline and a video embed.  I might actually need to fill it out.  

The video has been posted on a few different atheist/skeptic/free thinking type youtube channels.

You will need to watch the whole thing! If you don't, you'll miss out on the punchline.

The Rev. Phil Snider of Brentwood Christian Church told the council during the August hearing that "this step of gay rights is but another steppingstone toward the immorality and lawlessness that will be characteristic of the last days."
He reads for a while longer.  He reaches a point in the document that he's reading from where the text says,

"You see, the right of segregation can be found in the holy scripture.... " At that point, he lets them all know that he has been reading from religiously rationalized bigotry.  

It just makes me wonder...

Is using your mad oratorial skills to punk a room full of BURD's (Bigots Using Religion to Discriminate) a sin?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
