But Riiiiick, You Pwomised ...

I've got some troubling news you guys, which I'm particularly chagrined to bring you on the Lord's Day of Rest.

Rick Scarborough---America's favorite demon in God's clothing and Satan's number one boy toy---promised to set himself (including, presumably, his junk?) on fire if SCOTUS let the gays walk down the aisle and kiss their brides.

Well, now Rick is backing down, claiming he does not support "any violence or physical harm." Really? C'mon, Riiiick! Haven't you read the scripture on lying and breaking promises? 

Let's review:

"Do not lie. Do not deceive one another": Leviticus 19:11

"The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in men who are truthful:" Proverbs 12:22

"Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices": Colossians 3:9

"If a man swears an oath to bind himself by a pledge, he shall not break his word. He shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth": Numbers 30:2

"A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who breathes out lies will not escape": Proverbs 19:5

"I will not violate my covenant or alter the word that went forth from my lips": Psalm 89:34

I could go on and on, Rick. I'm sure you could, too, given your deep familiarity with theology and the bible.

But please don't say you disavow violence and physical harm, since the homophobic lunacy that you peddle and spew for profit and fame does exactly that: promotes and sanctions violence and physical harm to an entire community of fellow human beings.

You're a dangerous, irredeemable bigot and a hypocrite, Rick, but I still think you'd be an absolutely delicious substitute for pulled pork at a pig roast. 

So please. Cowboy up, and do as the bible (and all of our heathen stomachs) command: Keep your word, and self-combust.
