Title: Tennessee Cop Calls for Execution of Gay People Photographed at Pride Events

The Tennessee sheriff's detective is a pastor and delivered his sermon at the start of Pride Month earlier this month.

A Knox County sheriff's detective who is also a pastor at a local church is coming under fire for comments he made about gay people during a sermon earlier this month.

Detective Grayson Fritts refused to apologize, stating that he is only "preaching the Bible."

“I’m not an anomaly," Fritts told Knox News. "I am a Baptist preacher that is just preaching the Bible and if it offends society, then it’s going to offend society, but if all these other pastors would grow a spine … and would stand up just like I’m standing up. …”

But Knox County Sheriff Tom Spangler issued a statement that Tennessee law and the U.S. Constitution supersedes the Bible.

"I want to be very clear that it is my responsibility to ensure equal protection to ALL citizens of Knox County, Tennessee under the law, my oath and the United States Constitution without discrimination or hesitation," Spangler said. "Rest assured that I have and will continue to do so."

The sermon in question was delivered on June 2 and the video was apparently posted on the church's Youtube channel but it appears to have been removed. But several other videos remain, including one from June 9 titled "Sodomites Reprobates."

This is how the sermon was described by Knox News:

At points during a video of the sermon reviewed by the Knoxville News Sentinel, Fritts screams into the microphone, advocates for police riot teams to haul off Pride participants en masse and uses multiple slurs against the LGBTQ community.

He also targeted Christians and others who support the LGBTQ community.

Fritts referenced his law enforcement career multiple times during his sermon, first telling the congregation "such arrests and executions should be carried out by our government, not Christians," pausing for laughter as he added, "unless you're a policeman." 

Fritts has worked for the Knox County government since 1999 and was named a detective of the month in 2017. 

Now the Knox County District Attorney's Office said it will review all its cases that Fritts was involved in.

Sheriff Spangler said that Fritts had asked two weeks earlier to take a county buyout offer and he is now on paid sick leave until it takes effect July 19.

So he will likely continue his sermons at the All Scripture Baptist Church in Knoxville that states on its website: "Don’t expect anything liberal, watered down, or contemporary here."

Now there's an idea that has real merit. Include on spot executions of drug dealers as well. Clean up American society once and for all,.

On spot exwcutions? Do you not care about due process or murdering innocents? That is crazy and evil.

He said, "For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."

But also, "So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her."

I guess we'll all just have to take from there.

He said, "For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."

Yes, I agree. Let's take it from there.

Matthew 5:17: "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfill them."

It's all far more complicated than plucking random Biblical verses out that somehow resolve issues once and for all.

Hasn't Jesus reassured us that He came to fulfill the Law? He has also said plenty about "Abominations".

But also, "So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her."

(A continuation of your citation from John -- 10, "When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?"):

11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

There's good reason Scriptures must be read and understood as a connected tapestry and not as random Chapter and Verses because they don't tell nearly the whole story or lesson.

For instance, Galatians 6:7 could well be supplemental to your quote and mine from John in Jesus admonition (and mercy) on the Levitican Law of stoning and judgement of "The flesh"; Of Galations 6:7 He says, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”

Related thread of this Scriptural "tapestry" of Jesus' lessons and warnings:

"But those who persist in sin should be rebuked in front of everyone, so that the others will stand in fear of sin."

1 Timothy 5:20 is exactly what is frowned upon and called "Hate-Speech!" by today's secular, homosexual-manipulated "morality."

It certainly is, and that's why I posted those two verses as a small example of how much in scripture there is to reconcile.

Hopefully whatever the sin, we can abide in a society with a Bill of Rights and not go off the deep end as Hank takes pains to suggest.

This is not Iran.
