22-year-old Christian preacher clarifies that he wants gays executed ‘humanely’

Matt Powell is a young Christian preacher with a little over 350 YouTube subscribers who is trying to create a following for himself. The problem is that whenever his videos get any sort of attention, it’s because he’s saying incredibly stupid or reprehensible things.
Earlier this month, Powell appeared on a webcast with atheist YouTuber Skylar Fiction where the two got into a discussion about the harm that Christianity promotes, such as “anti-homosexuality.”
Powell wasn’t shy about sharing his views on how gay people should be dealt with.
“As far as homosexuality goes, I believe the Bible puts the death penalty on it,” Powell said. “I believe it’s disgusting. And incidentally, every scientific test has come back and said that homosexuals are 50 more times likely to get AIDS… we got this AIDS thing spreading… it’s a fact that this is the case.”
“You don’t believe that gay people should be stoned to death, do you?” Skylar asked.
“I believe the Bible puts the death penalty on it,” Powell replied. “Obviously, not by me or anybody in a regular society, obviously. I believe it’s the government’s job to execute criminals. I believe that the Bible says clearly that homosexuality is a criminal crime. It’s a crime. It’s one of the worst crimes ever.”
“Is that what you’re advocating for?” Skylar pressed. “That our government should stone gays to death to execute them?”
Powell took the opportunity to state that he believes in humane executions when it comes to gay people.
“By whatever means they execute people. And obviously, I believe in humane, you know, putting to death,” Powell replied.

Skylar then pointed out that Powell’s use of the word “humane” when talking about executing people for the mere fact that they’re gay was ghoulishly hypocritical.
“Whatever our government says, as far as for a death penalty, I think should go for them,” Powell clarified.
Skylar went on to ask how Powell thought other offenses that the bible says are worthy of death — such as disobedient children — should be dealt with. The young preacher applied the same ghoulish standard.
Watch the video below. The relevant part begins at the 8:05 mark, but the entire video is worth a watch:

Cardinal McCarrick, prominent US Catholic, resigns over abuse claims

More allegations against Mr McCarrick have since emerged

Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of a prominent US cardinal accused of sexually assaulting a teenager nearly 50 years ago.
Theodore McCarrick, 88, a former Archbishop of Washington, must also carry out "penance and prayer" pending a canonical trial, the Vatican said.
Last month US Church officials said the allegations were credible.
Mr McCarrick has said he has "no recollection" of the alleged abuse. Further allegations have since emerged.

Jehovah’s Witness-turned-filmmaker Daniel Kokotajlo has delivered a knockout debut about the insidiousness of blind faith.
British director Daniel Kokotajlo’s gripping, thorny debut film tackles religious fundamentalism through the lens of an all-female Jehovah’s Witness family. Living in Oldham, single mum Ivanna (Siobhan Finneran) and her two young daughters, Luisa (Sacha Parkinson) and Alex (Molly Wright), are devout, attending services and going door-to-door to spread the word. However, an act of transgression against their faith’s oppressive rules raises the stakes to dramatic levels. The church’s elders insist on total commitment or expulsion from the community.

Kokotajlo draws on his own experiences as a former Witness to bring intelligence and nuance to the story. His characters are never lambasted for their beliefs, but neither do they go unquestioned. It is a quietly brilliant work that balances the conflicts of three women, and the trio of actresses playing them give stunning performances.
The drama moves through the stark interiors of their Kingdom Hall, the family’s terraced house and drab office spaces. The stifling atmosphere echoes the community’s oppressive systems. Close-ups draw us in on moments of silent anguish with an almost voyeuristic intimacy.
For all his craft, Kokotajlo’s greatest triumph is in portraying a community of fundamentalists with such compassion, shining a light on rarely explored subject matter in a way that never feels exploitative. This is a standout British drama that pointedly asks us to question the strictures of institutionalised religion.
