Over the past several years, Sure Foundation Baptist Church in Spokane, Washington – and the associated New Independent Fundamentalist Baptist Movement (New IFB) – has earned a reputation for having some of the most offensive Christian pastors in the country, who regularly use slurs like “fa***t” and explicitly say they want LGBTQ+ people to die painful deaths and that they support those who want to kill gay people in mass shootings.
And now they’re whining about getting death threats.
Pastor Dillon Awes called for America to implement “the solution for the homosexual,” which is mass death.
Christian pastor calls for every gay person to be lined up & “shot in the back of the head”
Pastor Danil Kutsar of Sure said that he hopes “every homosexual dies” in a sermon last year.
“I hope every sodomite dies. I hope every homosexual dies. I hope every fa***t dies,” he said.
Just this past week, a video of one of Kutsar’s sermons got attention online because he said that the language-learning app Duolingo had been “infiltrated by homosexuals.”
“Duolingo, it has been infiltrated by fa***ts, so you gotta be careful,” he warned his flock. “I’m sure that every game out there has been fa***tized, you know? Ha ha ha. I’m sure every game out there, they have put fa***ts in there, they put whores in there.”
Independent journalist Hemant Mehta shared the video online, and he got a response from Sure Foundations’s official account.
“Oh, I was wondering why I was getting death threats again, this morning, out of the blue,” the church wrote on Twitter. “I thought, I bet Mahjer Bheta is behind this. Sure enough, after sifting through your sea of Christian hate posts, there it was. Your dog whistle of death. Who is really inciting violence?”
