Anderson Cooper Chats With Anti-Gay Worley Adherent: VIDEO


Anderson Cooper last night chatted with a woman who attends the congregation of Charles Worley, the shockingly anti-gay reverend who thinks the government should create concentration camps for LGBT people.

The woman, Stacey Pritchard, is all about Worley's plan, but she can't quite explain why other alleged sinners don't deserve to be detained, nor does she seem to have a complete understanding of where gay babies come from... Biology is hard, and Anderson is confused

Watch the exchange, AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. Oh lord. Bless her heart. I'm surprised she didn't pull a full smut face and tell Anderson to GIT.

  3. And why is it, exactly, that LGBTs don't have heightened judicial scrutiny beyond rational basis? Please explain.

  4. If they're not reading the bible, they're reading Amish Christian fiction.
    Take it from there.
    Trust me on this.

  5. Wow. Presumably she was the best member of the congregation Pastor Worley could put up in his defence. An excellent representative of the NC educational system and of her Church's good Christian values.
    I am glad Anderson has not let this story slip away though and that he lets the rest of America see their own bigotry played out live on TV and reflected back at themselves.

  6. Its jaw dropping how Christians, like this woman, will literally roll their eyes if quoted scripture they DON'T like, or find problematic, but then pick the ones to go full throttle on. That's why its called bias, its a special fixation.

  7. Do they even teach biology and how babies are made in NC or do they just find out when they marry their cousins?

  8. Regardless of whether you believe her to be intelligent, there are a lot of people who believe as she does. We have to be careful not to blame homophobic views on lack of education. It is scary, but there are still many people who believe as she does (even if they do not vocalize it this way). This should serve as a reminder that while there is much that has been done in progress, there is much to be done.

  9. Edumicatied much?

    Obviously she aginit, her Pastor is aginit and the Lawwwd is aginit.

    Common Decency? Aginit.

    Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness? Aginit.

    The Constitution? Aginit.

    America? They aginit.

    Preak Phelps is laughing his ass off 'cause the heats off Westboro temporarily.

    But he aginit!

  10. SAYTHETRUTH says "The problem is not what they think. The problem is that they pass on their genes."

    Sorry, but that kind of thinking isn't helpful. Hitler thought that way.

    It's what they pass on with their hate.

  11. I actually felt sorry for her. Oh, that's right. I don't have feelings.

  13. It really pisses me off that *she* gets to vote on *my* rights.

  14. @BGTNC If you think that woman would have the opp to pass on her genes in the wild, youre buggin. That mousy haired dregg owes her existence to air conditioning and costo chicken wings.

  16. I dare say some people are just born stupid. It's genetic, and it's rampant in the South. No doubt brought about by inbreeding.

  19. Full smut face. SOLOMON, she was right close.

    People are gonna tweest thangs. Wish someone would tweest her ears and give her a good come to Jesus smack down.

    How does one twist "fence THEM in" into anything other than what he said? He was pretty clear.

    But don't confuse the poor heifer with facts or reason or critical thinking. She got BELIEFS!

  20. Her pastor, he's AGIN it. Why don't you people understand? SHE's AGIN it!
    Who needs logical argument, when you can talk like a reactionary cartoon character from To Kill A Mockingbird?

  21. I am completely shocked at this woman! She is so wrong for everything she said. It really scares me that still to this day that people can't accept people for the way they are. She is so ignorant it's unbelievable. I wish I could kick her stupid "christian" ass.

  24. @BGTNC, it didn’t take you long for you to fall for the Godwin's law, isn’t it? And you quoted just part of what I wrote. I will repeat and be clearer, let’s see what you respond: in an Utopian ideal world, you should have to apply for a license to have kids, so people who shows that unskillful traits do not raise children neither pass on their poison and whatever hindrance they genetically inherited to have such lack of intelligence. I said Utopian, like in impossible in the real life, see? If you think it’s wrong to require a minimum IQ to raise children, don’t worry, the WORLD IS YOURS, YOU ALREADY WON, ENJOY IT!
