The Christian Gallery
I first learned of the Christian Gallery, on an EZBoard thread. I visited the site to see just how bad it was. I've seen quite a few "hate sites" on the internet, and I thought it would be pretty light reading compared to some like godhatesfags.com and national-socialist.org. Well, Neal Horsley, the webmaster/ preacher/ activist who runs the Christian Gallery; tries to make sure he covers All of the bases.
* most "Christians"
* the government
* other religions
the list goes on. He seems to single out the abortionists and gays as targets though. When I say "targets" I am being literal. He posts a list of abortion doctors who are still in "operation" and flashing icons next to the names of those who have been "taken care of". He states that IF he ran the country. Abortion doctors and those who have had abortions would be jailed or executed, and that "fags" would be locked away too. He even promotes a extremist group who state that secession via nuclear weapons, is the only way America will take them serious.
This man is actually running for the gubernatorial seat of Georgia! David Duke has nothing on this man!
I wrote to Neal Horsley, the leader of the show for this group, asking him a lot of why's. I also made up a fake Hotmail account and wrote to him under another persona. I will also post that as well in a later on. Well here is the entire transaction of the first letter......

When I read through your site, I wept. Not because of the abortionists and homosexuals, but due to what you and those who follow your message and example are doing. You condone and glorify the murder and harassment of those who perform abortions and those who Love those of the same sex. God may see that as a sin, and if so if he does he will judge accordingly. But to post a site that promotes hatred, judgment, and makes light of the fact that people are dying in this private war you are waging, and to do it in the name of God...... I just don't understand.
If you are a Christian , why are you directly and knowingly disobeying God? I have read the Bible three times front to back and in it, God clearly states many times that Justice, Judgment, and vengeance are HIS and HIS alone! I know that you may mean well, by trying to defend those who cannot defend themselves, but God say's it's Wrong. "why do you call me Lord, Lord! And do not do what I say?"
If "sinners" were to only have your example as a Christian (meaning a follower of Christ), I would not blame them for turning a deaf ear to the Word. You are supposed to be God's examples to a lost world. Barrabus was a Zealot as well; he spent his life murdering those who defied the Law of Moses. He followed the path of Righteous Vengeance. But Jesus knew him as a murderer. "What ye do unto your brother in you heart, ye do unto me also." I don't need to quote scripture to you if you are a Christian. I have studied the Bible thoroughly so that I could have a good defense against hypocritical "Christians" like you. If Satan exists, Christians like you are the best secret weapon he has.
If a Christian is by definition a follower of Christ, then why do you defame his gentle, loving, and forgiving image, by promoting violence against homosexuals and abortionists?
I beseech you to turn your energies away from the violence and judgment that you are spreading to others. I challenge you to take the platform you have and use it for something positive like teaching kindness, love or forgiveness. Or will you choose to "stick to your guns" and retort with snippets of half-scripture to back up your point of view? I warn you not to choose to use the Bible as a weapon against me. I have actually read the entire thing, and I don't just spout regurgitated smatterings of verses to those that I think I can overwhelm with my grand Biblical knowledge.

You teach when you have need of learning. When Paul said, "...where there is no law, there is no transgression..." he said something you don't even begin to understand. Yet you presume to teach me. Beware, you walk the streets of the city. You need access to the Holy Spirit of God or you are in danger of being like the one Jesus said "It would be better that a millstone be tied around his neck."
www.christiangallery.com/murder.html pretty well sums up what I have to say to you and all those carnal christians who are so carnal they don't even know what carnal means.
The fact that you ignore the obvious point of Paul's statement when he said, "where there is no law, there is no transgression" means that you cannot possibly understand your responsibilities as a citizen of the USA. The obvious point is this: Paul is saying that the law is required to teach people what sin is, and where there is no law, people will not be able to know what sin is. In fact, that is the point Paul's makes in the 4th through 7th chapter of Romans.
There is a law that is written on their consciensces by God but when that law has been removed through bondage to sin, government is required to step in and enforce the law. That is the point Paul makes in Romans 13.
In the USA, government derives its authority from you as a citizen of this nation whether you admit it or not. It is a historical fact created by the form of government God allowed to be ordained in this nation. For you now to ignore your responsibilities as a law enforcement officer when you are the person who literally hires and authorizes law enforcement officers is for you to separate yourself from reality and enter a private reality where your interpretation of reality becomes a private interpretation. You are presently comfortable in that place because it is occuppied by the majority of Christians in this nation in this generation. But the only comfort you have there is the comfort of knowing you are in the majority and the comfort afforded by the denial of the collaboration with sin that we are presently engage in as citizens of the USA.
Here is my response to his first mail and his follow up:
I did not want to engage in a scriptural battle with an unqualified and obviously unarmed opponent but remember.... you brought this upon your self.
As far as the fraction of scripture you attempted to use as a weapon against my plea to you to stop the violence... You wrote.."
>When Paul said, "...where there is no law, there is no
> transgression..." he said something you don't even begin to understand. "
If you were to read the entirety of the passage from Romans 4: 13-17, you would see, as I and others do, that this passage is not talking about punishing the lawless but rather walking in faith and the promise made by God to those who do.
ROMANS 4: 13 The promise to Abraham and his descendants, that they should inherit the world, did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith. 14 If it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void. 15 For the law brings wrath, but where there is no law there is no transgression. 16 That is why it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his descendants--not only to the adherents of the law but also to those who share the faith of Abraham, for he is the father of us all.
Please do not attempt to use partial verses of the Word of God as a weapon against someone who is obviously more well read in your own book than you. The word of God may be a sword indeed. It is a weapon. But it is not meant to be a weapon against men. It is a weapon against lies and false teachings. The same kind of false teachings that you preach from your internet pulpit.
If you would like to quote scripture, how about these scriptures? Notice how I use the entire verse and the ones following it, not just the middle part that suits my purposes.
"This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Choose life so that you and your children may live, and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice and hold fast to him." Deuteronomy 30:19-20
How does God's commission to choose life fall into your paradigm of killing homosexuals and abortionists?
"Do not pollute the land where you are. Bloodshed pollutes the land and atonement cannot be made for the land on which the blood has been shed, except by the blood of the one who shed it. Do not defile the land where you live." Numbers 35:33-34
"1 "Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. 3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is the log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye. 6 " Matthew 7:1
That being said, I do not challenge you to disagree with me, I challenge you to refute the words of God as written in the Bible. I realize that it may take a while for you to respond, if you intend to read more on the passages of verse that I have supplied you with.
Just know that there are many that see you as a leader, and a leader for the "Lord". But with much authority comes much responsibility. If you believe the Bible, then you are directly responsible for the souls of those that you may lead into a path of anger, hatred, and violence through your false teachings. Or do you not have faith that an all powerful God can enact his vengeance, not needing us to do it for him.

sums up exactly what I have to say on this matter.
Read it if you actually are trying to do what the Lord Jesus Christ
is asking from you. I would like to avoid having to
argue with you about this but the fact is thousands of
infant human beings are being slaughtered on my watch.
Some things are worth fighting over. This is one of
Well, I guess Mr. Horsley didn’t have much new to say after that. Here is an abbreviated follow-up I sent him. I will close the rant with this:
I will not sleep easy at night knowing you are allowed to run free, spreading you infection of insanity and lies to others that are ill equipped to discern the truth from the flavor of mendacity that you perpetuate. I just wanted you to know that you are not the only one with a website. Your website has it’s wanted posters and so does ours. You target those you hate, and rejoice when they are “no longer in operation”. How does it feel to now be on the other side of the fence? Your other letters to me have been posted on the website. You know… the ones that say if you kill a homosexual or one who participates in abortion “is not a murderer but commits justifiable homicide. “ My website does not condone violence either. We do have a list of the top ten “Most Ignorant People Still Breathing” page. And many of our readers feel that the gene-pool needs a little chlorine. Most of the readers are just committed to making sure that ignorant people like you, David Duke, and others don’t end up in a position of power.
I’m sorry I baited you, I just couldn’t resist finding out how stupid you were……
Anyway, I’m glad we’ve had these little talks, and I hope there are hard feelings. Lord knows I wouldn’t want someone like you as an ally. I leave you with two ancient blessings (or curses, take it how you want). May your life be interesting. And may you reap Everything you have sown, and may you get all at once. I’ll be looking forward to hearing that there was an “unfortunate incident between several ATF agents and a madman identified as one Neal Horsley”.
Until then…. Peace,
(no sarcasm intended)
