Here is the video:

Isn't that just hilarious? NOT! Joe My God has the story on this here.

Let's see. Prisons were full of homosexuals in the 70's? Really? And, prison guards become prison guards because they want some of that HOT gay action? Really? I must have missed these breaking news stories back then (and now).

I think this pastor may be taking the story of Daniel and Ashpenaz a bit too seriously, literally, and universally. You can find that story in Daniel 1. The whole chapter is interesting, but verse 9 is important here:

Now God had brought Daniel into favor and tender love with the prince of the eunuchs. (KJV)
You see, Ashpenaz was the "prince of the eunuchs." He also became Daniel's prison guard. Daniel had been captured and returned to Babylon as a prisoner after they had conquered Israel. It seems King Nebuchadnezzar wanted to feed them food that was forbidden to the ancient Hebrews. So, G-d decided to play cupid, and caused Ashpenaz to get a bad case of the hots for Daniel (hunky Hebrew that he was -- see verse 4). That way, Daniel could ask for "special" favors from Ashpenaz, and continue to honor the dietary laws that he was supposed to. Now, notice that G-d caused this to happen. Think about that (especially if you believe that the Bible condemns homosexuals and homosexual acts).

Anyway, it's difficult to see how one would transfer this ancient event to a modern scenario and make it universal. But, it's about the only thing I can think of to explain what this pastor said from the pulpit (in some Biblical context).

I can hardly wait to see what he has to say in his sermon titled, "Don't drop your soap in the Oval Office." It should be another doozy.

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.
