NC pastor: ‘crack limp wrists’ of girlish boys, reign in your ‘butch’ daughters

It’s okay to “beat the gay” out of children, says North Carolina Baptist preacher Sean Harris.

Harris, the Senior Pastor of Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville, N.C., is heard in this audio clip telling his congregation that should their children show any signs of “homosexual” behavior, then it is their responsibility to use violence as a corrective measure to prevent that child from being gay or lesbian.

“So your little son starts to act a little girlish when he is four years old and instead of squashing that like a cockroach and saying, ‘Man up, son, get that dress off you and get outside and dig a ditch, because that is what boys do,’ you get out the camera and you start taking pictures of Johnny acting like a female and then you upload it to YouTube and everybody laughs about it and the next thing you know, this dude, this kid, is acting out childhood fantasies that should have been squashed. …

“Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and crack that wrist. Man up. Give him a good punch. Ok?” said Harris, adding, “And when your daughter starts acting too butch, you reign her in.”
