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.

  6. Those Towleroad commenters who are calling on tax exempt status to be removed from churches need to be warned of how dangerous such a policy would be. It would be a true lightning rod in American politics. Watch people who are softening their anti-gay stand take a sharp turn to the right and develop deep hostitlity to all things LGBT. The damage would take years to undo. The Supreme Court won't be able to help you with this one. State Democratic parties in all but a few states would be in a panic, realizing that this means the Democratic party would be decimated in their state - no wins for Governor, mayoralties, etc.. You will see state Democratic parties threatening to walk out at the convention unless tax exemption withdrawal is explicitly rejected in the party's platform.

    Tax exemption for churches is something like the culture war equivalent of social security. It's the "third rail" of American politics. As for the violence that would be directed toward gay people....let's not go there, because it's too scary to contemplate.

  7. Just to let people know, the above "Mary" with the link to a Facebook page is not me.

  8. Does anybody doubt still that the basis of all organized religion is hate, conformity, and private property law enforcement?

    Still, even for a fundamentalist these are fighting words, and he totally misses the irony of early christians being rounded up and fed to lions, burned alive and hung from crosses, as if that could not once again become a popular solution to hate filled people.

  9. Well, I disagree with Mary. I just sent the following email to the IRS and strongly urge others to do so as well:

    Pastor Charles Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, NC, recently advocated for gay men and women to be rounded up into camps with the hope that they die out. In addition, he stated that if asked who he'll vote for, he'll reply, "I'm not going to vote for a baby killer and a homosexual lover."

    Here's the video:

    I believe this constitutes a breach of the provisions that allow church to remain tax-exempt in exchange for not participating in or advocating for a particular political party or individual. It should be investigated.

    Here's the email address for the IRS regarding churches and tax-exempt status:

  10. Someone posted his phone number on my Facebook page this morning, so I called and the pastor picked up. He gave me the standard "it was a horrible choice of words, and I'm going to issue an apology" line. The phones were ringing of the hook in the background. I also got the old favorite "Haven't you ever said anything you've regretted?"

  11. Can someone plz edit a version of this clip, so it just contains when he says "Can you imagine kissin some man? Good God I love you fellas!"

  12. This "pastor" was actually given an honorary doctorate degree. How do I know? I used to be one of the brainwashed sheep who sat in his congregation. It has also been stated that he embezzled money from the church and many church officials left because of this. Unfortunately the brainwashed congregation stood up for him and did not ask him to leave. He needs to be investigated criminally. Just one of many preachers leading people away from god! There are many good people in that church who are blind. Don't blame the flock, blame the messenger who knows Satan very well.

  13. WOW! And he calls himself a "Christian".

  14. Fine, just build the dividing fence around the church while his sermon is going on. Trap everyone else outside.

  15. Just take this Satan-worshipping clod into an open field and let people stone him to death. End of an error.

  16. He's acting like homosexual/queer people are a race or something... "they'll all die out," what? No, straight parents are the ones who have gay kids, sorry.

  18. I heard the amens but not a single person in that church objected to this guy's hate. I know it's never easy to disagree with your pastor but REALLY!!!! Unbelievable.

  19. Then, you take all the heterosexuals, of child bearing years, and you throw the women in with the Lesbians, and the Men in with the Homosexuals & Queers. You got to start when they are about 12 or so, cuz you remember that Mary Kay Letourneau & Vili Fualaau?
    Since most every homosexual alive today came from a heterosexual mating, we gotta stop that too. Just give that a few years, and keep repeating the cycle, and eventually you will have no humans left on earth. Then and only then will us Radical Christianists be happy. Dead, but happy.

  20. Lord, forgive them, for they know not what they say or do in Your Name. This is not faith.

  23. The pastors email address is not correct.

  24. You'd think that any person of faith, who is a decent person, would welcome revocation of tax-exempt status from churches and pastor such as this. You'd think that those who believe in the good that comes from the religious community, would believe that that belief should be honored and not defiled. That tax-exempt status ought to be earned. Heck, these people are all about what is earned versus entitlements, right?

    If you believe as MARY believes, apparently, money is more important than ethics. Than decency. Than the best that faith inspires. Don't rock the boat. What is right doesn't matter.

  25. Are there not pictures of Jesus kissing 'men" on their foreheads? Does not the Pope extend his hand for everyone to kiss? And lets not forget the on going concerns of sexual abuse that has gone on for years in our churches. And I ask,"Pastor Worley how would you fair if your life was investigated by law enforcement officials"?Could you possibly be hiding something?
