Thirty-five years later, as he creeps closer to the graveyard, Bob Jones ‘apologizes’ for his idiocy. I suspect that he wants to ‘make right’ with his god so he can walk through the pearly gates.
He claimed that he said the following for “political” reasons. Sure he did!
“I’m sure this will be greatly misquoted,” Jones said at the time. “But it would not be a bad idea to bring the swift justice today that was brought in Israel’s day against murder and rape and homosexuality. I guarantee it would solve the problem post-haste if homosexuals were stoned, if murderers were immediately killed as the Bible commands.”
No, not at all ‘misquoted ‘reverend. No. Just the usual pimping of the Bible for political gain.
