According to Pastor Rick Joyner of the Morning Star Ministries, my partner of 30 years and I are "useful idiots" employed by Satan to destroy society. Whenever there's a microphone present, Joyner waxes ineloquently about "evil" gays and lesbians, spreading the usual evangelical hatred to his thousands of admirers. Like the certifiably insane David Barton, this unhinged Christianist fancies himself as an historical scholar. Based on a 48-hour "vision" he claims to have had several decades ago, Joyner is warning his followers that “the very same demonic principles and powers” responsible for the rise of Hitler are "now trying to seize America.” (You can probably guess that tune in three notes. The Gay Nazi ditty is forever being warbled by fundie leaders Bryan Fischer and Scott Lively.)
After castigating President Obama for "apologizing" to the enemies of the United States - a common and deceptive Tea Party talking point - this unholy hypocrite later felt obliged to beg the pardon of those same Muslim extremists. Joyner said he was "sorry" for the "filth" of his own countrymen, particularly the "Devil's disciples" in Hollywood:
"I apologize for the filth and perversion coming out of Hollywood that I believe is spiritually and morally polluting multitudes all over the earth. This is one of the main reasons why Islam hates us so bad... You know what? They hate this thing that has them in bondage and they see perverting their own people and they feel that there is nothing they can do but kill us. We've become too perverted. They think America's a homosexual nation, lead, ruled by homosexuals and that this perversion has gone too far, there's nothing to do but destroy America and Americans. That's why they think it's their duty to kill us."
It's not all gloom and doom. The antics of these born-again proselytizers often induce hilarity. Consider this clip in which Joyner says he was able to feed the multitudes with a single casserole - just like Jesus did!
Perhaps Joyner should have a program on the Food Network:
