N.C. pastor wants LGBT people put in ‘electrified’ pen to ‘die out’

Monday, May 21, 2012

MAIDEN, N.C. — Another alleged “man of God” from a small Baptist church in this North Carolina community has been caught on tape calling for the starvation and ultimate deaths of “queers and homosexuals.”

The reverend Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, N.C., was filmed on a YouTube rant, reportedly filmed on May 13 condemning President Barack Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriage. Worley called for LGBTQ people to be put in an electrified pen and ultimately killed off.

“Build a great, big, large fence — 150 or 100 mile long — put all the lesbians in there,” Worley said.

“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!”

Worley said 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!”

In the background a significant number of the audience can be heard cheering and saying, “Amen.”

Worley added, “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?”

Watch:

  12. It’s like he’s urging for a second holocaust (but instead of Jewish people, members of the LGBTQ Community) to be written in the books of history.

  16. This is dangerous thinking. That’s what the Nazi’s wanted to do to the Jewish. First they wanted to throw them in camps, then killedl them all. What was once infecting below the surface has popped and all this hate is oozing out everywhere. People now can’t resist staying quiet about their thoughts against us. This only makes them look stupid.

  44. To James May- We’re not all assholes in North Carolina. But a few, like that prick got by up. And last time I checked, relationships between cousins were considered incest, and therefore also illegal.

  50. I wish people were wise enough to ignore people like him. He is obviously ignorant – about gays, about The Holy Bible, and about God. Unfortunately, he is just one more “man of God” who uses the bible to justify something God never intended. “Love one another, as I have loved you.” Pretty simple.

    Posted on Monday, May 21, 2012 at 5:10pm
  56. I’m gay and all four oft children are straight. And go figure; so are my parents. Only way to stop the “homosexual problem” is to sterilize all the heterosexuals. Oh, wait! That would eradicate the entire human race. Well I guess that’s better that lettin’ all these homosekshals keep runnin’ ’round.

  76. It is so rediculous that he thinks there would never be any more gays……….I mean aren’t gay people born from “straight” people.

    Posted on Monday, May 21, 2012 at 7:04pm
  77. Translation: Another Pastor is taking an extreme position on homosexuality, so in his mind, no one will suspect that he is molesting the little boys in his congregation. It really is that simple.

    Posted on Monday, May 21, 2012 at 7:11pm
  78. And this is why I’m seriously going back in the closet, its just too dangerous to be out. I’ve wrestled with my sexuality and tried to run from it all my life because of whack jobs like this and all the “it gets betters” in the world can’t make me feel safe after seeing this. Ever since I was young I’ve feared another Holocaust because I knew if it happens that as a disabled lesbian I’d be targeted. Now is as good a time as any to go back to the closet, nuts like this one and Romney are running loose and spewing hate and I haven’t had a partner in five long years so I’ve got nothing to lose. I do admire all of you that can live without fear and have the strength to stay out though <3

  81. The ignorance continues to astound me…it is soooo challenging to not react to this man with the same amount of anger and hatred that he sends to me…HOWEVER, he is obviously coming from fear not love…as hard as it is, I will and I am sending him love, light, and I pray that his ignorance may be lifted…I choose to respond to his hatred and the hatred of others with love…it is not an easy choice, but it is the right choice…my anger is passing and compassion is taking its place…this is me breathing slowly…inhale…exhale…Only love can cure this type of hatred

  115. That makes me so incredibly sad to read. There is nothing Christian about that sermon. Christ called for love and understanding. God said it best “Judge not lest ye be judged, for in the way you judge others is how I shall judge you.” That man will have an interesting conversation with God in the afterlife I think.

  119. Why did I move back to NC? I should have stayed in Hawaii. The curse of being an only child with aging parents… that love their baptist church… and I’ve never come out to… at least they’ll vote for Pres. Obama again… and are nice to their gay high school classmate… but I digress. This evil ass is sick. Can you believe these blind sheep give him all that money for such a grand ‘church’? Of course they do. Just look how overwhelming Amendment One passed. But I warned my fellow Tarheels, a new light is now shining on NC and all the wrong will now be brought to the forefront. You guys have to catch Ben Jealous, President of NAACP, on Rachel Maddow tonight, and his emotional discussion of equating gay marriage with every other battle for civil rights. POWERFUL!

    Posted on Monday, May 21, 2012 at 9:54pm
  120. I would love to ask this dummy what his thoughts are about heteros who cannot have children or who do not wish to have children. Should they be herded up like cattle and starved out as well? …There are some serious villains walking the earth right now and this “man of god” is one of them. Jesus would kick his ass right in.

    Posted on Monday, May 21, 2012 at 9:56pm
  121. christians, specifically baptist pastors from North Carolina, need to be put in electrified pans to die out… see how that works?

  126. I am so grateful for this man. He puts a face and a voice to the ignorance and hypocrisy that is homophobia. Haters of all stripe can look and listen and see how they appear to the rest of the world. He and his fellow preachers who promote discrimination and violence are going to be the breaking point because they are revealing to the world just how inhuman their position is. Imagine being a member of his congregation today and having to justify why you didn’t get up and walk out of that sermon!
