MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. — A Georgia church has posted a virulently anti-gay sign up saying that gay people should be put to death.

WGXA-TV reports that the sign for The Ten Commandments church in Milledgeville, Ga., reads “Homosexuality is a Death Worthy Crime.”

“This is the first time that I have ever seen anything that actually crossed the line and was inferring death upon a group,” local resident Robert Owens tells WGXA. Owens noticed the sign while riding his bike through town.

Pastor Robert Lee claims nothing is wrong with the sign, and referenced Leviticus 20:13 to a reporter.

“Homosexuality is an abomination, and the Bible says that homosexuality is a death worthy crime,” said Lee, who also claimed he hopes the Supreme Court is paying attention to his sign as they decide on the issue of marriage equality.

“The institution of marriage was instituted by God and it should not be changed by people who deserve not to live,” Lee said.
