Hey MetalMike! You wanna go too???
Maybe. But I'll need gas money, and you'll probably need to flash some boob if you wanna ride shotgun.

Re: Texas Preacher Threatens To Set Himself On Fire If Marriage Equality Comes

From Queerty - http://www.queerty.com/were-worried-...-fire-20150626

Not to scatter rain clouds on everyone’s parade, but while slugging down flutes of pink champagne and hurdling fistfuls of confetti in the air, a troubling thought occurred to us: Have any of you heard from Rick Scarborough?



As we reported Wednesday, the pastor promised — we’re imagining on a stack of bibles — to set himself on fire should American homosexuals win the right to marry.

Well.

It’s been several hours since the announcement was made, and yet we haven’t heard a peep (or sky-piercing death rattle) out of him. (Even Wikipedia is on Christian Deathwatch today.) If any of you live near Texas, could you pop ‘round the pastor’s pad and let us know if you find his charred husk chillaxin’ on the front stoop?

Please exercise caution: the 65-year-old opined that “the preachers need to get out front, the leaders need to get out front, out front of these ordinary citizens and say, ‘Shoot me first.’” You may find yourself trapped in a hail of gunfire, so dress accordingly. Vigilance is key.”

If he does happen to set his pants on fire today, it could be another landmark event: The first time a Christian fundamentalist practiced what they preached.

One thing I will say about the LGBT community: they're horrible winners, and their trite reflexive stance on religion is very effective at putting them on even footing with the very same closed-minded bigots which they so faithfully malign.

"Ex-Pastor Says He Wasn't Going To Set Self On Fire Over Gay Marriage"

The Huffington Post

RICK SCARBOROUGH

Inquiring minds are wondering whether Rick Scarborough, a conservative Christian political advocate who was said to have threatened to set himself on fire if the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage, is now merely a pile of smoldering ashes.

Several media outlets reported Scarborough's supposed threat. But it turns out it was a bit of an exaggeration.

The reports come from a statement that Scarborough, a former pastor, made on the National Emergency Coalition show -- a podcast linked to a right-wing group Staying True to America's National Destiny, the Independent reported this week. Scarborough never actually mentioned lighting himself ablaze.

What Scarborough said -- referring to how devoted he and his followers are to "traditional values" -- was, "We are not going to bow, we are not going to bend, and if necessary we will burn" Have a listen for yourself:

While it's tempting to imagine a man so fanatically committed to bigotry that he would take a match to himself, it's more likely that Scarborough meant he'd burn figuratively.

The Huffington Post contacted Scarborough's organization, Vision America, to ask about any potential plans for self-immolation in light of Friday's Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage. His publicist told us that Scarborough's statement has been misinterpreted, and he meant it as a reference to a "spiritual song."

In Scarborough's words: "I made that comment to paraphrase a spiritual song, 'Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego,' in which the three were given a choice -- to bow to the image of Nebucahdnezzar or burn in a furnace. ‘We will burn’ means that we will accept any sanction from the government for resisting today’s Supreme Court decision. We do not support any violence or physical harm."

This story has been updated to include new comments from Scarborough.

But did he actually say it, or not?
