Londonderry pastor lambasts superhero comic books that include gay characters


LONDONDERRY - A Londonderry pastor and online columnist is objecting to the inclusion of gay and transgender characters in comic books.

"The woman defying gravity’s limitations also flies home at night to be with her 'wife'?" asks Steve Pauwels in a column posted to barbwire.com.

The idea that characters of the same gender might marry or have sex? Well, that's an "ewwww," he writes.

Instead, he proposes a super villain "who wields his powers to transform all of society into his version of a sodomy-worshiping, marriage-distorting, family-depredating Eden," for the exclusively heterosexual heroes to vanquish.

His anti-gay polemic ends with a call for "the Rainbow Mafia to leave Captain America alone!"
