Thanks to the video this story has received a fair amount of press, here in the U.S., so this jerk has had to continuously backpeddle since it hit the news.

Yep I read about his backpeddling, “I do not apologize for the manner in which the Word of God articulates sexual immorality, including homosexuality and effeminacy, as a behavior that is an abomination to God. Nothing in this official statement of retraction should be perceived as an apology for the overarching intent and message of the sermon and the need to define marriage as one man and one woman and to maintain the gender distinctions that God created from the beginning when He made them male and female (Genesis 1)."

or to paraphrase - "I'm sorry I caused offence, but my invisible friend hates homos anyhow, so who am I to argue?"

Id like to add that Thor has since implied that Pastor Harris deserves a porcupine enema. I can't provide evidence of Thor's existence or that I'm not putting words into the mouth of a fictional character to serve as a half-baked proxy for my own opinions, but he does have a blockbuster movie out right now, so whatever he says goes.
