A North Carolina pastor outraged by President Obama’s recent support for same-sex marriage stirred up controversy with an sermon on May 13 in which he suggested gays and lesbians be penned in and made to die off.
“The bible’s against it, God’s against it, I’m against it, and if you’ve got any sense you’re against it,” the pastor, who is identified in the video caption as Pastor Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church, told his congregation.
He then enlightened his listeners on how he would opt to get rid of gays and lesbians.
“Build a great, big, large fence, 150 or 100 mile long, put all the lesbians in there,” he said. “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.”
“They can’t reproduce,” he said. Of course, straight couples have gay and lesbian children all the time, so the pastor’s idea wouldn’t really kill off all the gays and lesbians, if he somehow managed to build such a concentration camp.
The pastor added that he won’t be voting for Obama, and described him as “a baby killer and a homosexual lover.”
A video of his outrageous revelations went viral shortly after and has garnered hundreds of thousands of views since being posted this week. The sermon was brought to light, according to reports, by Catawba Valley Citizens Against Hate.
“Pastor Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church — located at 3283 Providence Mill Rd, Maiden, NC 28650 — is seen here from a service posted to the church’s website dated May 13, 2012 calling for the concentration and ultimate death of ‘queers and homosexuals.'” reads the video description.
