Prevo stirs up "trouble" right here in Anchor-city

by Matthew Moak

Each time I read something written by Rev. Prevo, I can't help but equate him with the character Harold Hill from the Music Man.

Melodically, Rev. Prevo takes to the media singing his own version of "Trouble." Rev. Prevo's ability to use this musical message filled with fear to control his followers as he attempts to push his "moral agenda" is unfortunate. The tune he sings however is catchy and the beat easy to dance to.

Christians used the Holy Scriptures to condone slavery and to champion against interracial marriages based on their own interpretation of the Scriptures. Rev. Prevo attempts to push his own interpretation of the Scriptures as they relate to homosexuality.

Rev. Prevo is quick to toss out the Clobber Scriptures which he interprets to be damning to homosexuality such as Leviticus 20:13 and yet he refuses to admonish his followers for eating shellfish, which is an abomination (Leviticus 11:10), or to chastise his own male followers who get their hair trimmed, which is expressly forbidden in Leviticus 19.

There were four commandments given to us by Jesus. Love God, love yourself, love your neighbor and love your enemies. Not one of them involves hate.

Oh yes, Rev. Prevo, we've got trouble, lots and lots of trouble here in Anchorage. Thankfully the vast majority of us are familiar with not just your song, but also your dance.
