Hate preacher says gays should be killed by electric chair because it’s “a little more painful”

Another hate preacher affiliated with the wildly anti-LGBTQ+ New Independent Fundamental Baptist Movement, or New IFB Church, has called for the public execution of gay people.

“That’s what fa**ots deserve, is the death penalty!” railed “Brother” Robert Larson in a sermon at the Bible Believers Baptist Church in Union Gap, WA last week. “And they should do it publicly for everybody to see.”

“Bring back the electric chair!” Larson encouraged to his congregation. It’s “a little more painful” than the alternatives.

Larson asked his flock in Union Gap last week, “What does God say the homos deserve? In Leviticus 20:13, a famous verse, it says, ‘If a man also lie with a man as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.’ That’s what f***ots deserve.”

“Every single sodomite, every single homosexual should get the electric chair,” Larson continued. He added, his voice rising, “And they should do it publicly for everybody to see, so that they know that’s what happens to these freaks! These rapists, these child molesters.”

“They are God-haters. It’s the reason why they’re even like that.”

Pastors associated with New IFB regularly call for violence against LGBTQ+ people, using the most hateful and demeaning language possible.

“You know, a couple of my friends in the New IFB,” Larson continued, “they got in hot water because they said that they should line up all the fa**ots and, you know, and put them in front of a firing squad. I think that’s too easy. I think they should get the electric chair, make it a little more painful.”

In 2021, another IFB pastor at a Texas church, Pastor Jonathan Shelley, asked, “‘Are you sad when f*gs die?’ No. I think it’s great! I hope they all die! I would love it if every f*g would die right now.”

Danil Kutsar, a pastor at the Sure Foundation Baptist Church in Spokane, called for “death to f***ots” in 2022, adding “I hope every homosexual dies.”

And another IFB pastor at another Texas church, Duncan Urbanek at the Stedfast Baptist Church in Watauga, preached, “These homos are worthy of death. They should be charged in a lawful assembly, and the government should execute them. The government should line them up and shoot them in the back of their head.”
