Boca Raton Pastor Protesting Casino Proposal, Believes It'll Just Bring Hookers and "Evils"

Categories: Religion
Mark Boykin, a pastor at Boca Raton's Church of All Nations, isn't too happy about Republican State Sen. Ellyn Bogdanoff's filing a bill to allow Vegas-style casinos in South Florida.

After citing hookers, crime, "evils," and some stuff he found on the internet, he's planning to show up to Bogdanoff's office with some people and act angry.

"I believe that everything that happens in Vegas must stay in Vegas, and we do not need the kind of crime, prostitution, and others evils associated with gambling to expand in Florida," he says. "For decades, we have cultivated a family-friendly, vacation-postcard image here in Florida, and Sen. Bogdanoff's bill will destroy it."

As for the stuff he found on the interwebs, he says ranks three Las Vegas neighborhoods in the top 20 "most dangerous neighborhoods" in the US of A.

We bring this all up because Boykin has taken part in some very important protests in the past.

In September, Boykin started protesting Gov. Rick Scott. There may be many reasons to do so, but Boykin's takes the cake -- he says the governor's stock portfolio includes "a company that sells pornography to Latinos."

Yes, really.

It's not exactly clear whether he's protesting the pornography or the fact that "Latinos" are being sold pornography, but we're guessing it's the naked-pictures part.

He carries on all the antigay and anti-abortion rhetoric too, and of course, he was around during this summer's Margate mosque protest.

Right, the casinos.

Boykin's getting gloomy because he supported, held a fundraiser for, and voted for Bogdanoff because she was the "family values candidate," but now she's letting all the hookers and "evils" in.

"It's a Florida nightmare to think that politicians like Sen. Bogdanoff want to bring down a 10.6 percent unemployment and $2.6 billion budget cuts this year by bringing Las Vegas-style gambling to Florida," he complains. "It won't work, and it will hurt our economy and more importantly our family-friendly vacation status."

Well, if Boykin read the Pulp, he'd already know the claims that the casinos would hurt the economy have already been debunked as "bullshit."

The protest is on Tuesday.

As near as I can tell, most molesters of little boys are liberals.  They love the helpless, hate men, like sneaking around acting pompous, and never accept responsibility for anything.  Conservatives prefer to exploit women.

I've thought about this and offer the following observation.

Preachers are worse than whores, as they take money from fear and don't deliver a viable product.


The real evil of gambling is that it finances vote buying by nasty, smelly, lying politicians.

>> Bring hookers and "evils"

Hell yeah! 

Sorry pastor, but not all of us are like the men of the cloth who prefer "little boys" and who believe in white bearded sky creatures, though I do like this from your Big Book of 10 Lies.

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee.
