A couple of weeks ago, I brought you Pastor Sean Harris of Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville, who told his laughing parishioners:
Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and crack that wrist. Man up. Give him a good punch. Ok?
Now we have another Baptist Pastor saying that gays and lesbians should be put in concentration camps and left to die. No, I am not exaggerating.
Pastor Charles L Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden says:
“I figured a way to get rid of all the lesbians and queers,” he says in his sermon, delivered on May 13. “Build a great, big, large fence — 150 or 100 mile long — put all the lesbians in there… Do the same thing for the queers and the homosexuals and have that fence electrified so they can’t get out… And you know what, in a few years, they’ll die.”
The Sunday after this was recorded, he used the scriptures to justify his call for the death of homosexual and transgendered people.
Amidst the rest of the hate and violence filled diatribe he calls — to more Amens! — for a vote against President Obama.
Catawba Valley Citizens Against Hate have organized a protest outside this church next Sunday, May 27.
Worley does not represent all Christian opinion in his state. For the campaign against the constitutional amendment defining marriage, a large group of Christian leaders came out against it.
