Interview With Pastor Sean "Punch Your Queer Kid" Harris

My interview from the show with Pastor Sean Harris, he North Carolina pastor whose violent anti-gay rant blew up across the internet is up at HuffPost Gay Voices, where you can listen to the full audio. He said his message to parents in a sermon -- to "punch" a boy who is effeminate and "crack that wrist" if he is limp-wristed -- were taken out of the "context of a ministry," and that he meant them "figuratively," claiming that Jesus, too, in the Bible, "conjures up violent images." Listen in.
