Miami-Dade Police say 73-year-old Braulio Valenzuela intended to burn down the home that belongs to two women, who lived next door, because they are lesbians, reports WSVN-TV.

Security cameras captured Valenzuela exiting his home around 4:30 a.m. Saturday, and disappearing behind couple’s home. Moments later, the video shows a globe of fire.

The flames were extinguished before they could burn down the couple’s home.

Valenzuela never admitted to sparking the fire, but he did confess that he hates seeing the two female neighbors kiss and does not think they deserve to have children.

Valenzuela is being held on a $230,000 bond.
