Standing Ovation Greets Pastor C. Worley, Who Made Anti-Gay Statements, by Isolde Raftery, James Eng, MSNBC.com
Although gay rights and anti-hate groups responded with outrage when a North Carolinian pastor called for gays and lesbians to be fenced in so they eventually die off, he was greeted with a standing ovation by his church members when he approached the pulpit, the Hickory Record reported.
“I appreciate all the support,” Pastor Charles Worley told the one-hundred or so congregants at Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, N.C. on Sunday, according to the Record. Several members stood and spoke out, others threw up their hands in support of their pastor.
“I’ve got a King James Bible,” Worley said, according to the Record. “I’ve been a preacher for 53 years. Do you think I’m going to bail out on this?”
The 71-year-old delivered a sermon on Mother’s Day, in response to President Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriages. Just a day before the President’s announcement, the voters in North Carolina approved a bill that banned same-sex marriages.
In the sermon, Worley told his congregation: “I figured out a way, to get all the lesbians and the queers, but I couldn’t get it passed Congress—build a fence and put all the lesbians, the queers, the homosexuals in separate pens, and fly over and drop some food, and have the fence electrified, so they can’t get out.”
Are you FUCKING (oopsy!!!) kidding me here? Didn’t God TELL us to love each other, regardless of our races, our ages, along with everything ELSE that may separate us, making us into INDIVIDUALS? And, here’s this PSYCHO (b/c he is???) that uses the NAME of G-O-D, to instill a sense of HOMOPHOBIA? Are you SURE that you’re NOT doing S-A-T-A-N’s work here, Pastor, Reverend, Preacher, Priest of WHATEVER else you may be calling yourselves? Yeah, that just shows you how INVALID religion turns out to be, feel free to SUE me, see if I care, I’m still just “reporting” what I see here, and, maybe, “inputting” some of the OPINIONS that I am still MORE than E-N-T-I-T-L-E-D to.
