Downtowners, if you're wondering why there are teens everywhere, it's time for the annual onething conference put on by IHOP -- the prayer group, not the pancake maker. They're all here to pray and cry and listen to shitty Christian pop music. And Wednesday night, they got an earful of Lou ("sexual insanity will be unleashed upon the
Engle's 60-minute rant
Wednesday night was as crazy as you'd expect, with Engle sharing his "crazy dream" (it was a shared one with children) about two tornadoes with "H.A." written on them, sent to destroy America. Of course, the letters stood for "homosexual agenda" and "abortion." At one point, he called out to God, "Let me show the love of Christ to
the homosexual." (Clarification: As pointed out in the comments of this post, I got
twisted working my way through the onething website. This is apparently
an archived rant by Engle. Check out the comments for a link to Engle's speech
from Wednesday night.)
For an hour, Engle railed against the director of the EEOC, hate crime bills, gays in the workplace and RU-486. Engle said he was doing it out of love, which he
has a strange idea of, and to fight the "rising tide of Antichrist sentiment." Then, as if taking a cue from this morning's Studies in Crap, Engle put the women folk into their place, explaining that he's not the chauvinist.
"God has a way. He has an order," Engle said.
Engle also answered his critics who call him an "extremist," saying that
political correctness is just "raging demons." He spoke of a "godly war" coming against political correctness.
Engle is a man who's expressed a rabid
anti-homosexuality stance, which includes supporting
and promoting Uganda's "Kill the Gays" bill? He's preached for his followers to commit to "martyrdom" and a possible
war to end abortion in the United States.
