NC Pastor Wants To Build Electrified Fence To Contain, Starve And Ultimately Kill Gays: VIDEO


In a sermon blasting President Obama for his same-sex marriage support, Pastor Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, North Carolina, offered a novel — and horrific — solution to the so-called gay scourge: build an electric fence and let "lesbians, queers and homosexuals" starve to death.

"I figured a way to get rid of all the lesbians and queers," he says in his sermon, delivered on May 13. "Build a great, big, large fence — 150 or 100 mile long — put all the lesbians in there... 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." Worley fails to understand that gay people are born, not made, and that there would just be more LGBT folk coming down the line.

He also that if he's asked who he'll vote for, he'll reply, "I'm not going to vote for a baby killer and a homosexual lover."

The not-so-holy man concludes, "God have mercy. It makes me pukin' sick to think about — I don't even whether or not to say this in the pulpit — can you imagine kissing some man?"

Throughout the sermon, many of his congregants can be heard calling out "Amen."

Watch Worley's wretch-worthy remarks, AFTER THE JUMP...

Note: Worley does say "drop some food" for the lesbians, which suggests perhaps he doesn't want to starve us all to death, but there's no mention of supplying an endless cupboard of sustenance, which is why, to me, this speech sounds like starvation.

  1. If It was about 2 months ago, I would probably making posts about ripping his flesh and chewing on the liver and kidneys of His children.
    But Thanks To Christ, I wont spew out hate like This ignorant anti-Christian satanist.
    he is hateful and ignorant, Because he now lives in the devil. Homosexuals are same as heterosexuals or bisexuals, as long as their love and affection if true.
    But Yes, These false-prophets of satan are doomed for hell, But I can only Pray that he gets delivered from His satanic thoughts and murdering agendas and repent to stop his doom.
    God Bless Him.

  2. OK, what is the whole thing with putting us in a cage or electrified fence before starving us to death? Why not just come out and call for our extermination?

    This says alot about the level of sickness and sadism this man has; he wants to starve us like the Jews and watch it happen; he wants us to live like animals before we die.

    Rick Santorum is no different from this pastor when he implies gays have sex with dogs -- it is all part of dehumanizing us before they fire up the ovens.

  5. Has anyone researched where he was schooled in theology? I want to research his background. He appears to be the type that has found Jesus in the cell of a prison.

  7. I wonder if he realizes that a 25 mile square enclosure (100 mile fence) wouldn't contain a 16th of the homosexuals out there who have come out, much less the poor souls who are unwilling or unable to?

  8. Can't "pastors " like him be recalled by church head honchos? I can't believe that all Baptists agree with nut cases like him, but we are seeing a lot of posts by these Southern Baptist pastors.

  10. Not to put too fine a point on it, since I suppose the advertisements on the Towleroad site are generated automatically using some kind of algorithm . . . but seriously, is this really the article where an advert for "Metal Fence Systems" is appropriate? That's what showed up to read this article. With details like, "Expanded metal security fence systems competitively priced,"

  14. Crickets, you're absolutely wrong. Many Christians disagree with this wack job. The Episcopal Church, the ELCA Lutheran Church, the United Church of Christ, and the Presbyterian Church USA all allow for the ordination of gays and lesbians and the UCC performs gay weddings. The Episcopal Church is in the process of developing marriage rites for gay couples. Every mainline Protestant denomination has congregations that joyfully welcome all people, including gays and lesbians, into their churches. And some Catholic churches go against the Vatican and are pro-gay. So, you are being highly selective in your comment about no Christians speaking out against homophobia.

    But perhaps you're being pedantic and insisting that Christians speak out against this pastor in particular. It may come as a surprise to you, but everyone doesn't read Towleroad so they may not know about this lunatic.

  15. Thank you, humbleman, and all the other Christians denouncing this man. I wish your voices were loud enough to drown these people out. I am a Buddhist, but respect Jesus and his teachings, and they seem about as far away as those of this man as imaginable.

    In turn, let me say as a lesbian that returning hate and bigotry with hate and bigotry do not speak for me, either -- specifically the commenter who suggested murdering and packing our adversaries such as this ignorant, small-hearted charlatan "man of God" up for dog food. Stooping to that base level is not only counterproductive in that it gives our adversaries more ammunition to paint us as monstrous "radicals," it's also completely unnecessary. We know the truth of our own lives and hearts, and though we should always raise our voices against people like this man, sharing our own honest, open experiences of inequality with our friends, relatives, co-workers, neighbors, fellow citizens has proven itself the only weapon we need. C

    Leave the hating to the haters.

  16. You can contact this "preacher" at:

    Here is a letter I just wrote. Probably too much but I think he should get an avalanche of mail.

    Dear Pastor Worley,

    I guess that phrase "old time religion" on your website says it all. The scriptures were written two thousands years ago by unsophisticated tribesmen not unlike many of the people currently living in Afghanistan, though many of them have cell phones. Over the course of those two thousand years, science and education have made a major impact on our thinking and we no longer see the world in terms of (death for this) or (punishment for that.)

    Of course there are still ignorant hate mongers, particularly in Southern churches, but they are becoming much more of a laughing stock now that more than 50% of Americans support same sex marriage. In Canada we have had it for eight years and the sky didn't fall, our society is harmonious and our economy has benefited.

    Perhaps now is the time for society to turn its distaste away from gays and lesbians, many of whom are members of our families and turn it against those who would preach hate and violence against others.

    Instead of your electric fence to keep in law abiding citizens to die of starvation (very Christian!) Perhaps we could use Wrigley Field to round up scum like you and have wonderful entertainment events where hungry lions are let loose on their hapless victims. It's been done before, in times that you seem to revere so much.

    Please go away and die in pain somewhere. You are an embarrassment to God.

  17. Some of you may be old enough to remember Elaine Nobel the first openly LGBT human being to be elected to a state legislature, in her case, Massachusetts in January, 1975. Ms Nobel said something once in reference to the persecution of LGBT individuals that has always stayed with me: "You can't get 10,000 people on a train if they don't want to get on the train." Spreading this sentiment around would not be amiss. It might give people who would take the reverend's thoughts to heart a moment of pause... sorry, let me say that it BETTER give them a moment of pause. NEVER AGAIN, indeed.

  19. Hey Pastor, come on out of the closet. Everyone will understand, be on your side and still love you... maybe more than ever, once you're freed yourself to be your true self. And just think--what a relief it will be! You won't have to be tormented by all those horrible fantasies, or talk about them in public--fences and electrocution and death? really? Truth will out.

  20. It doesn't help to misrepresent this idiot. What he says is evil enough. Claiming he says he wants to "kill" or "starve" his "lesbian, queer, and homosexual" targets is simply incorrect. Attack his actual words. Apart from honesty being good in itself, overstating what he says allows him to dodge criticism by pointing out—correctly—that critics are misrepresenting what he said.

    To repeat: around 0:57 of the video, Rev. Moron says—quickly but clearly—"feed 'em." He never says anything about starving or killing anyone. He doesn't quite say so explicitly, but it's very clear that his idea is to isolate the "l, q, and h" folks and wait for them to live out their three score and ten. He thinks—it's illogical, but it's what he thinks—that since they can't reproduce before they die, there will be no "ls, qs, and hs" once they have all died, several decades from now.

    This is evil, as well as astonishingly stupid. But call him on his actual evil, stupid proposal, not on a made-up proposal for death camps that he does not make.

  25. Any one who preaches hatred from his pulpit should ask himself What Would Jesus Do.
    Jesus did not starve or wish to kill or cause harm to anyone other than the money changes in his house.
