(Watch Snider's full speech) http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/1...ef=mostpopularAt first, this Missouri pastor's anti-gay speech seems akin to those delivered by a number of conservative preachers and other right-wing pundits nationwide over the past year.
"Any accurate reading of the Bible should make it clear that gay rights goes against the plain truth of the word of God," Rev. Phil Snider of the Brentwood Christian Church proclaimed at a Springfield City Council hearing on the city's nondiscrimination ordinance. "It's not that we don't care about homosexuals, but it's that our rights will be taken away, and un-Christian views will be forced on us and our children, and we'll be forced to go against our personal morals."
But, as video of his speech reveals, the pastor has a few surprises up his sleeve.
