Genocide? Pastor Says Kill All ‘Queers And Homosexuals’ By Airlifting Into Electric Pen

North Carolina Pastor Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church is calling for the mass murder of the world’s homosexuals, as he told his congregation Sunday, May 13, he had mused about how to kill off the entire gay population. Pastor Worley told his parishioners that he wants to airlift and drop all “lesbians” and all “queers and homosexuals” into an electrified fenced-in area so they can die out. “You know why? Because they can’t reproduce.”

“Build a great, big, large fence — 150 or 100 mile long — put all the lesbians in there,” Pastor Worley says, as his sermon builds. “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 out…do you know why? They can’t reproduce!”

The “pastor” also said “God’s again’ it,” referring to same-sex marriage, and, homosexuals and/or same-sex sexual relations make him “pukin’ sick.”

Pastor Worley conveniently forgets a few issues. First, he is violating the trust of his flock by calling for the death of human beings. Second, heterosexuals keep making more homosexuals. Third, can you imagine anything more un-Christian than calling for mass murder?

And for a moment just imagine a young LGBTQ child or teen sitting there, listening to this hate speech. If there are any LGBTQ youth or teen suicides from Pastor Worley’s congregation, he has blood on his hands.

And let’s remember, like all churches, Pastor Worley’s Providence Road Baptist Church doesn’t pay taxes. And by advocating for a specific political candidate he could (and should) lose his tax-exempt status. Anyone care to contact the IRS?

North Carolina’s pastors are responsible for some of the most virulently homophobic statements imaginable in recent times, after the highly-contentious Amendment One battle which embeds discrimination into the state’s constitution and deprives same-sex couples of the right to marry.

Amendment One passed despite the fact that its sponsor, the late North Carolina state senator James Forrester, could not support any of his medical or other claims about homosexuality.

You can contact Pastor Worley on his church’s website.

UPDATE:

Apparently the pastor has had their contact information scrubbed from their website.

Pastor: Married Gays Dangerous To Kids, One Step Away From ‘Person And Beast’ Marriage

Neo-Nazi White Supremacists Come Out For North Carolina Gay Marriage Ban

Beat The Gay Out Of Kids Pastor Apology Attacks Homosexuality As ‘Abomination’

The Huffington Post has a series of some of the worst statements made about LGBT people by right-wing pundits.

UPDATE:
Lisa Derrick at FireDogLake adds:

Isn’t one of the biggest fears of the wingnuts “FEMA camps”?  Even Glenn Beck says Obama is building them for Republicans. and why do you suppose The Wingnut Gummit would stop with the queers and homosexuals? They might go after oh, say Republicans who support queers and homosexuals. Or Republicans who  don’t like they way their taxes are being spent. Or… Someone needs to send Pastor Worley this poem by Pastor Niemoller:

First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Then at 1:24, Pastor Hate Worley preaches from the pulpit:

Somebody says, Who are you gonna vote for?” I ain’t gonna vote for a baby killer and a homosexual lover.

Whoopsie:

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office.

And according to the North Carolina Secretary of State, Providence Road Baptist Church is a non-profit corporation.

Fundamentalist Christianity is an ugly cult. This batch of toxic-absurdities amounts to spiritual terrorism.

The sort of person who sat in the pew and listened to that hate speech, would have been at home at a Nuremberg rally.

A great point, reminds me of the Milgram experiments that show people are likely to follow an authority figure, and a pastor is certainly an authority figure to many. I believe we put those on trial that were involved in the holocaust… maybe the good pastor Worley would be willing to stand trial when one of his "flock" (that's so incredibly insulting to me) decides to attack an LGBTQ person?

joeytranchina May 21, 2012 at 4:25 pm

Funny you should menton that.

I have a photograph of me with Phil Zimbardo & Andy Weil on the desk in my office in France. I was a west coast kid, so I was first exposed to the Stanford experiments before I know of those at Yale… but yes they point out the same frightening reality.

They do represent the same danger to society.

David Badash May 21, 2012 at 6:00 pm

Wait — calling parishioners part of a flock is insulting?

Goose09 May 21, 2012 at 6:13 pm

Personally, I don't want to be compared to a sheep. Those of faith may compare themselves to whatever they wish. It's simply my own preference.

David Badash May 21, 2012 at 8:25 pm

OK, well, it is an accepted term, and, no insult intended!

A minor victory — I called the company that produces the bigoted pastors website. I asked them if they support genocide against gays and then told them I was ashamed of them.

As of last hour, the church website has dissapeared, its been pulled from the web completely.

My ideal solution … lock all the religious idiots in a round room … take all their clothes and their belongings … feed them once a day (whatever they want to eat) and then let them sort it out on their own, however they want to sort it out … away from society … where they are a danger to themselves and others!

Although the invention of the typewriter and personal computer with the keyboard input method have changed how users write, the pen has not been entirely replaced.[17] Higher end pens including types such as fountain pens are still a status symbol.
