North Carolina Pastor Charles L. Worley, who called for genocide-like concentration camps for all gay people made headlines this week, but he did not only attack gays on Mother’s Day. Worley has a long history of calling for the Bible-based dead of gay people, going back at least as far as 1978, when he lamented that gays weren’t hung from trees anymore.
By now, most everyone has heard Pastor Worley’s sermon from Sunday, May 13, Mother’s Day.
“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!”
But the following Sunday, May 20, Pastor Worley continued his attacks on gay people, having his assistant read Leviticus and Romans and inviting all sodomites into his church so he could preach to them and “save” them.
Watch this video. (The audio is very low but gets better later.) The May 20 sermon begins about 2:15. His “invitation,” during which he claims, “this church loves people, and any homosexual, any sodomite” is invited to hear him preach against you.
My concern is for the children who hear this. The LGBTQ children who hear this, and have it impact their psyche, and the kids who hear this and think it’s OK to bully — or worse — kids who are LGBTQ, or whom they think are.
Towards the end, Pastor Worley claims that homosexuals he nows were so miserable because they were gay.
He adds, ‘When you get into [homosexuality], it puts the hooks of hell into you.”
