What would Jesus do? Well, you can be pretty sure he wouldn’t cancel Easter! But Reverend Bud Locke sure did after he accidentally sent an invitation to a church that welcomes LGBT people. Yes this year, Reverend Locke accidentally allowed an invitation to go out to Valley Ministries, a small church with LGBT members. When he realized what he’d done, he emailed Valley Ministries’ Reverend Terry Miller — from a city email address, since Locke also works for the police department — to disinvite them.
This didn’t happen in some remote podunk, southern town –this is in Stockton, right outside of San Francisco. After word got around about Locke’s bigotry, first re-invited them, THEN decided to cancel the whole thing because it was getting “too much publicity.” He says that he HAD to cancel the ceremonies because all the attention they were getting. Yeah, OK.
Now, Easter is cancelled – thanks to the gays! (via Queerty)
