#QandA anti-gay pastor Matt Prater’s bizarre Billy Joel cover

Sad Matt Prater

Sad Matt Prater

This is Matt Prater. Doesn’t he look sad?

Matt is chief liar-for-Jesus at a Brisbane church called New Hope.

He is also a hosts on a national Christian radio network called Vision Radio.

Vision. Radio.

He also has a Diploma in Creative Arts majoring in drama and singing. So he’s probably as good at singing as he is preaching the Truth to all nations.

Matt Prater doesn’t like gays

Matt Prater doesn’t like gay people at all. He is especially upset by the thought of gay people marrying. It gets him ‘fired up’.

His co-religionist Kevin Rudd, Prime Minister of Australia, recently had a road-to-Damascus conversion and is now in favour of equal rights for gay couples.

Last night, Matt got the chance to ask Rudd a question on the ABC’s Q and A program. He was very excited! Oh, the joy! Divorcee Matt points out the sanctity of marriage as understood by Jesus.

Here’s his question, and Rudd’s barnstomingly awesome smackdown response:

HOLY CRAP!

Did you feel that BUUUUUURN?

Have some cream for that burn

Have some cream for that burn

It seems that that Matt’s been Prayin’ the Gay Away for several years.

In fact, in 2011, he recorded a song about gay marriage. It’s a cover of Billy Joel’s We Didn’t Start The Fire.

I’d link you to the song on his website, but (gosh darn it) his website seems to have been struck by the same bug that hit the Australian Christian Lobby’s a while back. Christian websites are dreadfully unreliable. Matt used to sell websites, by the way.

I am Matt’s saviour.

Here’s the song, which I thoughtfully archived. I listened to it for your sins, Matt.

Isn’t that something? Doesn’t that just scream ‘Diploma in Creative Arts majoring in drama and singing‘?

Here’s Matt during happier times, smiling and holding his album:

Happy Matt Prater

Happy Matt Prater

In case you can’t see it, the album is called ‘Hope for Hurting Hearts’. Which, if you ask me, is a pretty weird thing to hope for. But so is denying equal rights to gay people. And, well, that song.

I suppose that’s what you get when you name a church after a Star Wars film.
