Miles McPherson: The Real Sissy Stands Up!

In Uncategorized on January 23, 2010 at 3:52 pm

The Rev. Mile McPherson, a former drug addict – now born-again christian preacher, has been subpoenaed to testify at the Prop8 Trial, but the Rev. refused to testify due to what he says is possible retaliation from gays. This is the same Rev. McPherson that openly advocated for Prop8, and wasn’t afraid to spew anti-gay marriage opinion on Larry King, CNN, Youtube, etc.. Of lately, he has been feverisly removing sections of anti-gay posting from his websites. So, what exactly is Rev. McPherson afraid of? Why not testify? Interesting note:  Miles brother, Don McPherson -also a pro footballer, is a major critic of gender roles at Adelphi Univ., NY.

“Alvin McEwin has posted an interesting article about San Diego pastor Miles McPherson and his attempts to get out of testifying in the federal Prop 8 trial. We say interesting, because it falls right in line with McPherson’s history of wanting to say completely nutty and untrue things about gay people, and then hide whenever scrutiny comes his way.

As Alvin notes in his article, McPherson was found to have scrubbed an article from his Rock Church website once gay activists (led by Alvin himself) noted that it contained highly offensive, highly unscientific “stats” from the notorious Paul Cameron. Namely this one:

There are also moral repercussions stemming from homosexual behavior as evidenced by the fact that one third of all sexual crimes against children are committed by homosexuals even though they are representative of only one percent of the population.
It’s completely made up. Completely out-of-line. And now that folks have noted it, it’s completely scrubbed from McPherson’s church site. Quietly, of course, with no apology offered.

But we now want to build on Alvin’s work and note another instance of convenient scrubbing that we stumbled on back in the summer of ’08. At the time, we noted that McPherson had posted a thoroughly incendiary screed about just how Devilish we gay folk innately are, and how pleasing our unions are to our Lord Beezlebub:

Last week San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom said gay marriage throughout the entire country is “inevitable. … It’s going to happen, whether you like it or not.” Well, this has nothing to do with whether we “like” gay marriage or not. It’s not up to us; God has made it clear in His Word that homosexuality is wrong, and marriage is between a man and a woman.

Regardless of how you feel about the Bible, it’s clear from Scripture that God didn’t just create humans so that they could decide which they wanted to be, male and female. No, he created male and female in preparation for the
institution of marriage, a relationship reflecting the full glory of His image.

Marriage is a picture of Christ and His Bride, the Church. And the devil wants to destroy the church — as a matter of fact, Satan wants to destroy God’s image. The evil one is having a field day right now, and I believe
things are going to get worse before they get better.

This isn’t a political or cultural battle; it’s a spiritual battle being fought right before your eyes. This issue is so much bigger than either side realizes. As Satan uses the marriage issue to attack the image of God, I urge you to pray for our state. Pray for our leaders. Pray for our legal system and that the eyes of the judges be opened to what is going on around them. Pray for wisdom and discernment in our words and our actions as we move forward with this. God does not always call us to win the battle here on earth, but He does call us to stand up for what is right.

What side are you on?
But then, true to McPherson form, his blog was scrubbed of all evidence of this post. Gone in the wind. Never to be seen again. We’d bet considerable cash that this was due to his raised public presence during the Prop 8 campaign, perhaps even due to pressure from the higher ups. Because if there’s one thing these kids hate more than the Devil, it’s transparency and full disclosure.

What McPherson didn’t consider? That the Internet Archive exists, preserving his handiwork for all of time. Because of the wonders of data retrieval, we can all quite clearly see what he wrote on this June/08 day, just as we can still find the scrubbed Cameron stats that he quoted back in 2004. Something we sincerely hope the lawyers who will soon question Mr. McPherson have also done!”
