Surprise! Texas Pastor Won’t Set Himself Aflame Because Of Marriage Equality After All

Oh shucks. The Texas Ex-Pastor Rick Scarborough who said he would light himself on fire if SCOTUS passed marriage equality, now says he won’t do it. What a wuss.

The anti-gay religious nut from Pearland, TX originally released his statement on June 22nd to illustrate how far him and his followers will go to defend traditional marriage should the Supreme Court pass marriage equality on a federal level. Well now since they have, he says,

“Oh, no JK I’m totes not gonna set myself on fire after all, lol!” He didn’t actually say that but fuck it I will misquote him anyway.

Can I just say that I’m quite disappointed? I was hoping for some celebratory fire works during Gay Pride this weekend.
