No, Todd Starnes - There is no "Christian purge"

Todd Starnes

Todd Starnes exists to remind us of just how persecuted the 70% majority is. It must be especially difficult for Mr. Starnes as a white-Christian-professed heterosexual-male. Today Starnes writesThe Christian Purge has Begun: Chaplains Banned From Preaching Homosexuality is a Sin.” And what is it that has caused Mr. Starnes to go batshit?

Starnes has a persecuted Christian — a victim at the hands of the state:

Chaplain David Wells was told he could either sign a state-mandated document promising to never tell inmates that homosexuality is "sinful" or else the Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice would revoke his credentials.
As Starnes correctly cites:
Volunteers working with juveniles shall not refer to juveniles by using derogatory language in a manner that conveys bias towards or hatred of the LGBTQI community. DJJ staff, volunteers, interns and contractors shall not imply or tell LGBTQI juveniles that they are abnormal, deviant, sinful or that they can or should change their sexual orientation or gender identity.
There are scores of Christian ministers, rabbis and imams who can conform to those rules. It would seem to be common sense that if you are going to work with gay kids a good starting point is not to shame them. No?

Starnes goes on and on and on. He even quotes Mat Staver (I need not repeat Staver's BS). Ultimately Starnes the Inerrant Seer has been telling us all along that the sky is falling:
Folks, I warned you this would happen. The Christian purge has begun—and it's only a matter of time before all of us will be forced to make the same decision Chaplain Wells had to make.

Will you follow God or the government?
You follow the government if you want to work with children that the government is responsible for. Nobody is forcing anyone to volunteer. Pretty simple.
