Samantha Bee, a correspondent on Comedy Central's The Daily Show, on Monday persuaded a pastor to consider that his anti-gay rhetoric sounds narrow minded.

In a field segment, Bee interviewed Matt Slick, an evangelical pastor who claims Christians are being targeted by intolerant gay activists.

“Christians are getting bullied,” asserted Slick, the host of Matt Slick Live. “The Christians that I talk to are intimidated. They'll often get persecuted.”

“For what?” Bee asked.

“For just saying that they believe that homosexuality is wrong or that homosexuals are sinful, just like adulterers, just like pedophiles, just like liars, just like thieves. I'm just informing them.”

“Okay, so the homosexuals don't like that?”

“That's right. They're not very tolerant.”

“So, hey jerks, be more tolerant of your intolerance,” Bee said mockingly.

“Of my religious orientation,” Slick responded.

After the pair are seen walking in public with Bee yelling at passersby not to judge the Christian, Slick claimed that straight people are being attacked over their sexual orientation.

“The opposite happens as well, where homosexuals go out to find straights to beat up.”


“Yeah,” Slick answered.

“At what point has your right to express yourself been infringed upon?” Bee asked.

“I don't know if it's going to happen, but I'm concerned about it,” Slick answered after a pause. “I have a radio show. I'm just concerned about any oppression that may come, that people might say, 'Matt, you can't say that on the radio,' that homosexuality is a sin.”

“It's like you can't even go on the radio anymore and condemn a whole subset of people to hell without getting some blowback.”

“Well, when you put it that way, it does sound rather arrogant and myopic, narrow-minded and bigoted.”

“Good. Then I've done my job,” Bee told the pastor.
