Father, forgive them!
St. Paul. A.M.E Church Pastor RON RAWLS of St. Augustine, Florida shared his anti-Gay and anti-Gay marriage views after the United States Supreme Court's landmark decision in the Windsor case. RAWLS compared Gay people to Michael Vick and dogfighting (among other sickeningly trite tropes, false analogies and Lashon hara directed against GLBT people).
God forgive him for spreading anti-Gay hatred in our community, based on Biblical misinterpretations. Pray for him.
Rev. RAWLS June 19th demanded to tear down Historic Echo House and put up a parking lot, threatening to move his church out of the City of St. Augustin if he does not get his way. The demands were at a meeting of the Historic Architectural Review Board (HARB) of the City of St. Augustine. See Item 5C, http://staugustinefl.swagit.com/play/06192014-645
God forgive him. Pray for him.
