As a response to President Obama’s recent statement of support for same-sex marriage, Pastor Worley of the Providence Road Baptist Church (Maiden, North Carolina) gave a sermon to his congregation with his ideas on how to kill off gays and lesbians. Here’s an excerpt of his hateful sermon:
Build a great big, large fence — 50 or a 100 miles long — and put all the lesbians in there. Fly over and drop some food. Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals — and have that fence electrified so they can’t get out. Feed ‘em. And you know in a few years, they’ll die out. You know why? They can’t reproduce.
Shocking? I would say so. Such hateful views are dangerous. Yet another disturbing intrusion of religion on politics. Strange bedfellows, as they say.
Thanks to the efforts of concerned citizens, the company hosting the church’s website removed it from the web. That’s a step in the right direction (see article below). Now if we could only remove that pastor from his pulpit before he comes up with any more brilliant ideas …
The Catawba Valley Citizens Against Hate will be staging a peaceful protest against the Providence Road Baptist Church on Sunday, May 27th. They have set up a Facebook page for RSVPs to the protest event. If you’re in the area, be sure to sign up.

I came across an additional post about Pastor Worley’s anti-gay sermons including an audio from 1978 in which he says, “…Forty years ago, they would’ve hung ’em — bless God — from a white oak tree.”
