Arlington Megachurch Pastor Gene Lingerfelt -- and God -- Approve of Government Shutdown

Just as God led Moses to Mount Sinai to receive the Ten Commandments, so He led Faith Christian Center pastor Gene Lingerfelt to 6900 U.S. Highway 287 in Arlington, Texas, to become the bearer of His Word. As befits the digital age, He has swapped stone tablets for Twitter and timeless maxims with snarky, up-to-the-second political and social commentary.

We present below His teachings on the government shutdown, as channeled through his appointed messenger here on earth. The message has been lightly abridged but otherwise untouched, since such lofty spiritual matters are far beyond our understanding. We offer no further comment other than to say that Robert Jeffress better step up his game, and to note that the agents of Satan must have scrubbed Lingerfelt's Twitter account.

more crap gossip in lieu of news.  Why don't you go and report on how many teachers DISD has hired since 700 have quit in the last two years.  Oh yeah, the masturbatory gossip stories are so much more fun.   Why not tail one of these evangelists?  Look at their books.  Just do something other than put up a weak ass facebook page of dull thoughts

And so the political soapbox appears...propped up on the millions of dollars he's scraped off the backs of his flock. WAKE UP PEOPLE. The devil might come to "steal, kill and destroy" but GENE will take you to the bank before then. 

Convincing a half black congregation that "O" is a "Zero"...some mighty strong kool-aid you have there Jim. Step off your pedestal and get back to reality.

Sounds like a great time to reconsider the tax-exempt status of this "Church"!

While I don't agree with the methods he uses, he is right in speaking out against what is wrong in America today. Anyone who actually knows the man know he cares for the country and hates the fact Obama is doing a great job of running it into the ground. He is a man who wants to see his congregation succeed .too many ministers are embracing worldly views and ways. People only want to hear that what they are doing isn't wrong and get angry when someone tells them otherwise and start bashing men who speak truth. Are any of us truly without fault? The simple answer is no Gene Lingerfelt included, he is a man prone to stumble like any of us doing what he feels is right to try to shine light on an ever darkening country. Regardless of how he tweets, God used and is using this man to change peoples' lives. Drug addicts, alcoholics, people in severe debt has all come out because of the teachings of God that people put into practice after hearing this man speak of things like tithing and giving unlike so many preachers out there refuse to speak of, and the power of God to change lives regardless of how deep the situation is. What should you take away from this? No one is perfect even pastors. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone, Do not judge lest you be judged.

I've attended this man's church several times. He makes fun of fat people, ugly people, poor people and pretty much anyone who doesn't fit into his "social class". He's egotistical and insecure. In almost every sermon, he finds a way to work in a story about a member of his congregation that dared to oppose him. He shows how superior he is by making his target appear idiotic and weak and if that isn't effective enough, he'll pick on their appearance or the kind of car they drive. What's worse is that he's trained his son (the associate pastor) to use the same tactics.

He uses Old Testament laws to manipulate his congregation into tithing and you're sure to hear the word "tithe" ten times more than you'll ever hear the name "Jesus" in any given sermon. He mocks people for watching the news and getting involved in the "ways of the world" while simultaneously using his Twitter account as a self-righteous, political soapbox. He questions the quality of life of those who spend their time on social media but "tweets" every 30 minutes, himself. All of this while claiming the only sin he's ever guilty of is the occasional overeating of a meal.

He's like a religious version of Kurt Sutter. Yuck.

Not enough time to write everything wrong with this guy.  NT warns of false teachers and prophets.

There once was a perv known as Lingerfelt,

Who asked a young man how his finger felt.

The boy was in shock,

Then he gave him a sock.

Now the perv walks around with a welt.

Another one he threw out there, then deleted: 

@GeneLingerfelt: Since I don't serve as a pastor to metrosexuals from Squishville, I can't change into that to make Millennial losers on twitter happy.

Wow, this guy is a piece of work...

Not only is Lingerfelt awesome at teh Twitter, based on the pics he's posted, he appears to shred a mean axe.  I bet he's got pure electrolytes flowing through his veins while spitting truth at the Church of Affliction ®.

I propose a Dallas Observer-style Nativity Scene where two bulldyke lezbo Marys are buttfucking each other's pussies with big black dildoes while two gay faggot Josephs babyfuck Jesus in the manger and cram their dicks down His throat! 

Meanwhile, two leatherdaddy bear gay angels buttfuck in the heavens while they piss golden showers of gay angel pee out of their homosexual dicks down from fag heaven, raining upon the Dallas Observer-style Nativity Scene.

Then, each bulldyke lezbo Mary and faggot Joseph takes their buttplugs out of their respective anuses and they all take a big steaming shit right on top on that goddamn baby Jesus and make him eat the poopoo and then shove a shitty buttplug in His mouth for Him to use as a pacifier!

 Then the two fag gay Josephs and the two fat spiky-haired scowling angry 3rd Wave Feminist bulldyke lesbians take a big devil knife and disembowel Baby Jesus and make a big Pentagram out of His blood and guts and then they invoke Satan, while buttfucking and rolling around in Baby Jesus Guts! 

Then after Satan comes and buttfucks them all and makes them all get a big Satan-Facial of Deviljizz, and he blows a huge Satanic load all over the dead, disemboweled Jesus, then all the fag Josephs and dyke lezbo Marys wave around Rainbow Flags and Co-Exist bumperstickers while shouting "Down with White Privilege", and "Won't Someone Think About The People Of Color!!??!!"

That would be quite a hoo-ha and show those darn Christers a thing or two about how tolerant we are! I say!

@TheTruth TOTAL BULLSHIT! Gene Lingerfelt is a typical Fascist hate merchant spreading lies to support his biased and prejudiced opinions. If there truly was a god, then he would send a lightning bolt to vaporize guys like Lingerfelt.

I attended this church for over five years so I think I have a bit more experience with this. Gene Lingerfelt does come off a tad like you say but the man genuinely cares for his congregation and the man can't be known by twitter posts. and as for "making fun" of people he is pointing out wrong things like gluttony and irresponsibility with money which is a massive problem in America, people trying to live beyond their means. He points out the fact that that is stupid. I don't agree with the methods he points out these things but nevertheless he is right in most things. And while "tithing" is not mentioned in the New Testament GIVING is many people were called by Jesus to give away ALL their possessions.... Giving into the ministry, regardless of what word you used, is necessary and is commanded by God. And as for Austin Lingerfelt, you don't have a clue of who he is. He is one of the most kind and loving men I have ever had the pleasure to know, anyone who says differently is misinformed or a liar

@Dub919 It is obvious that he has a crush on himself, and I would bet that he has a "deep, personal, emotional" love interest in himself, too!

@rusknative @rice0833  Oh so clever.  Not sure who Rev Al is ( Al Green , Al Bundy , etc. ? ) . If you're talking about Rev. Jesse Jackson , he happens to be a paid political consultant who happens to be a Rev. and someone who has been deeply involved in civil rights for 50 yrs. - not quite the same as some bigoted hateful Pastor for a mega-church.

@Daniel @ericrapesbabies There you go confusing him with logic! I think that "ericrapesbabies" is none other than Richard Sheridan, who is exactly the type of guy who would make such vile and hateful comments, but unfortunately, Richard is hardly the only one who shares those same feelings.

@rusknative @fracquestions @TheTruth I don't know about George. You probably know him a lot better than me. I'll just have to take your word for it, but I am not sure what that jhas to do with this conversation.

@TheTruth 

You believe that some supernatural being is using Gene Lingerfeldt to impose his will on others.

I'd say that qualifies as a symptom of psychosis.

@TheCredibleHulk I don't demand inspiring, Hulk. Intelligent would be nice. Fair would be even better, but probably expecting too much.

Fair point.

But I might reply that if you are looking for inspiring stories of spiritual enlightenment here, at Unfair Park, you're definitely in the wrong place.

@TheCredibleHulk Hulk -- Is there anything else to religion but creationist dullards and frothing right-wing preachers? One wouldn't know it from this blog.
