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

Staff Reports

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?”
