Some Thoughts on Sean Harris

Sean Harris, a pastor in North Carolina, said the following.  You can see the video here.
"So your little son starts to act a little girlish when he is four years old and instead of squashing that like a cockroach and saying, 'Man up, son, get that dress off you and get outside and dig a ditch, because that is what boys do,' you get out the camera and you start taking pictures of Johnny acting like a female and then you upload it to YouTube and everybody laughs about it and the next thing you know, this dude, this kid is acting out childhood fantasies that should have been squashed. 

Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and crack that wrist. Man up. Give him a good punch. Ok? You are not going to act like that. You were made by God to be a male and you are going to be a male. And when your daughter starts acting too butch, you reign [sic] her in. And you say, 'Oh, no, sweetheart. You can play sports. Play them to the glory of God. But sometimes you are going to act like a girl and walk like a girl and talk like a girl and smell like a girl and that means you are going to be beautiful. You are going to be attractive. You are going to dress yourself up.'"
So your pastor starts to preach that children must be beaten if they don't conform to gender roles, and instead of squashing that like a cockroach and saying "You're fired." you laugh?  You say "Amen!"?

Folks, the second you hear your pastor preaching this garbage, you should walk up to the pulpit and crack his jaw.  Give it a good punch.  Ok? Tell him to get out there and help the poor, the sick, the hurt, and the defenseless, because that's what Christians are supposed to do.

And if he says "This is America, I have the right to say what I want!" you say "Oh, you do, sweetheart.  But we don't have to let you say it here."

Reign him in.  Because no one else is going to do it.  He's a bully, and bullies must be stood up to.
