‘Douche du Jour’: North Carolina Pastor Charles L. Worley Says Put Gays and Lesbians in Concentration Camp to Kill Them All Off
What’s up with all the homophobia coming out of North Carolina churches lately? You’d think that with the state’s successful passage of a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, bigoted church leaders would be happy. You’d think they’d move on and preach against some other “sin”– perhaps one that Jesus actually had something to say about.
Alas, the gay-hating bile spewing from the state’s pulpits has increased to a near-fevered pitch in recent weeks. Two-bit pastors from around the Tar Heel State have ratcheted up their homophobic rhetoric, with some of their insidious sermons caught on video. Sean Harris, senior pastor at Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville, delivered a sermon in support of the constitutional ban on gay marriage in which he advised fathers of feminine-acting sons to beat the gay out of them.
“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,” Harris urged his approving congregation.
Then pastor Ron Baity of Winston-Salem’s Berean Baptist Church (and head of the anti-marriage equality organization Return America) said that LGBT individuals, who he said lead “perverted lifestyles,” should be prosecuted as criminals.
“We’ve become so dumb that we no longer prosecute gays,” Baity fumed.
Over in Raleigh, Beacon Baptist Church pastor Tim Rabon opined that marriage equality will inevitably lead to unions between “person and a beast.” “We’re not far from that,” Rabon warned.
Now the Huffington Post reports that pastor Charles L. Worley of the Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden– “the home of old-time religion”– has been YouTubed ranting against the evils of homosexuality and calling for LGBT people to be locked in an electrified pen until they all die off.
“Build a great, big, large fence– 150 or 100 mile long– put all the lesbians in there,” he railed. “Do the same thing with 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 out… do you know why? They can’t reproduce!”
Moving on to electoral politics, Worley said he won’t “vote for a baby killer and a homosexual lover,” to which much of his congregation cheered and shouted “Amen!”
Boosted by his fatuous flock’s fawning approval, Worley continued:
“It makes me pukin’ sick to think about— I don’t even know whether or not to say this in the pulpit– can you imagine kissing some man?”
Moral Low Ground has an idea: let’s make pastor Worley pukin’ sick by sending him photos of men kissing. Here’s a link to his church with an inviting “email pastor Worley” link. Keep ’em clean, but keep ’em coming!
