Benefiel: Baal Demon Behind Homosexuality

Right Wing Watch (RWW) brought us yet another example of compassionate Christianity (read: faux-Christianity) yesterday when they posted video of Pastor John Benefiel saying the demon Baal is behind homosexuality. According to RWW, “Benefiel, who earlier maintained that homosexuality was an Illuminati plot to depopulate the earth, told Roth—after asserting that watching pornography is an act of “Baal worship”—that homosexuality is a result of paganism and Baal’s attempt to ‘infiltrate our Christianity.'” Here’s video of the amusing segment:
Tim Peacock is the Managing Editor and founder of Peacock Panache and has worked as a civil rights advocate for over twenty years.
