A Conversation with [fundamentalist Christian preacher] Matt Powell
10 May 2018
Matt comes on to discuss Christian theology. We end up talking about his support for the death penalty for homosexuals and disobedient children.
From the New Civil Rights Movement in the USA:
Christian preacher: The government should execute gay people
Christian preacher Matt Powell says the government should execute gay people because the Bible says so.
“As far as homosexuality goes, you know, I believe the Bible puts the death penalty on it,” Powell told atheist YouTube personality Skylar Fiction in an interview.
“I believe it’s disgusting,” Powell added, speaking of homosexuality. Friendly Atheist’s Hemant Mehta first reported on Powell’s remarks.
At one point Fiction felt the need to ask Powell if he were just trolling him, because his views are so extreme they resemble the Westboro Baptist Church.
“You don’t believe that gay people should be stoned to death, do you?” Fiction, attempting to clarify Powell’s remarks, asked.
“I believe the Bible puts the death penalty on it,” Preacher Powell responded, referring to homosexuality. “Obviously, not by me or anybody in a regular society, obviously. I believe it’s the government’s job to execute criminals. I believe that the Bible says clearly that homosexuality is a criminal crime. It’s a crime. It’s one of the worst crimes ever,” the preacher said. He added that not all sins are created equal.
“Is that what you’re advocating for? That our government should stone gays to death to execute them?” Fiction again asked.
“By whatever means they execute people. And obviously, I believe in humane, you know, putting to death,” Powell continued. Fiction reminded him that execution is not humane.
Powell also said, falsely, that every study shows gay people contract HIV/AIDS at a rate 50 times higher than non-gay people.
Later in the interview Fiction pressured Powell to explain why he believes God is good. Powell was unable do so, other than by saying God says he is.
Unfortunately, the ‘reverend’ Powell is not the only person in the USA advocating killing LGBTQ people. Not the only one among fundamentalist preachers (who may add now-ex President Obama to their religious kill lists). Not the only one if we look at politicians of President Donald Trump’s ruling Republican party.

This guy needs to be in a mental institution. He believes the bible says GOD wants gays executed and the government should do it. What happens when he realizes the government isn’t going to do that? FBI, pleas keep an eye on this nut case.
Thanks for your comment! No, at the moment the government won’t do that. However, looking at the direction in which the Trump administration goes, I unfortunately cannot exclude it 100% for the future.
