Michael Bresciani has some serious issues with … you guessed it: gays and lesbians (probably mostly gay men):
”In our world most of those spreading the gay lie are liberals, activists, spineless academicians, Hollywood sellouts, and now we can throw in a president and a large contingent of fully duped politicians … There is little doubt that the entire gay and lesbian community is guided by a powerful demon spirit who is subordinate to Satan.”
I am not sure Bresciani knows exactly what “lie” means.
His day job is to be a Christian author and a columnist for several online sites and magazines, most notably Alan Keyes’s RenewAmerica. According to his bio, “[h]is articles are now read in every country in the world,” which presumably means that they are read in the US because that’s the only country that matters. Bresciani has a very literal view of hell, and explains in detail how it is organized (musings fascinatingly reminiscent of helpless medieval neo-Platonist scholars and comic book authors). Alcoholics are apparently possessed by Satan as well.
Wait; possessed? Yes, possessed by demonic angels. According to Bresciani:
“The demoniac of Gadara (Lk 8: 26f) was said to have, not one devil, but an entire legion of devils. That is about 6,000 devils in that one man alone. What makes us think that there are not enough devils for everyone in our world who steps into Satan's kingdom? One third of the angels departed from the presence of God when Satan left [no citation; seems to rely on Milton]. That could be a number we could not fully imagine.”
I don’t think most people disagreeing with Bresciani disagrees primarily over the numbers of devils. The quote is from Bresciani’s defense of Daniel Avila, the “marriage guy” of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, who has himself argued that Satan was responsible for homosexuality but later (non-)apologized. Bresciani didn’t accept the apology, apparently, though for the wrong reasons.
He’s also a renowned birther and a staunch defender of Ray Comfort (he shows up in the comments here to defend him).
Diagnosis: Amazingly deranged and ignorant Taliban fundie with a strong nostalgia for early Medieval Times and the appurtenant cartoon interpretation of the Bible. Dangerous.
