NC Pastor Worley: Wishing Gays Could Be Killed Since 1978 – AUDIO


Yesterday, we posted the video of North Carolina pastor Charles Worley advocating that gays and lesbians be put in camps so they'll die out.

Jeremy Hooper at Good as You did a bit of digging and found an old sermon from 1978 revealing that Worley's views haven't changed much. In the audio, which one of Worley's congregants chose to post on the web, Worley waxes nostalgic for the days when they would have hanged gay people.

Says the pastor:

"I’m God’s preacher. I just believe the book. [We're] living in a day when, you know what, it saddens my heart to think that homosexuals can go around — bless God — and get the applause of a lot of people. Lesbians and all the rest of it? Bless God — forty years ago they’d have hung 'em — bless God — from a white oak tree. Wouldn’t they? Amen."


A protest is planned at Worley's church on Sunday.

In related news, the web site of Worley's Providence Road Baptist Church has been taken down since yesterday. Radio host David Pakman spoke with a lesbian mother who has heard Worley's sermons.
