North Carolina Pastor Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church is calling for the mass murder of the world’s homosexuals, as he told his congregation Sunday, May 13, he had mused about how to kill off the entire gay population. Pastor Worley told his parishioners that he wants to airlift and drop all “lesbians” and all “queers and homosexuals” into an electrified fenced-in area so they can die out. “You know why? Because they can’t reproduce.”
“Build a great, big, large fence — 150 or 100 mile long — put all the lesbians in there,” Pastor Worley says, as his sermon builds. “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!”
The “pastor” also said “God’s again’ it,” referring to same-sex marriage, and, homosexuals and/or same-sex sexual relations make him “pukin’ sick.”
Pastor Worley conveniently forgets a few issues. First, he is violating the trust of his flock by calling for the death of human beings. Second, heterosexuals keep making more homosexuals. Third, can you imagine anything more un-Christian than calling for mass murder?
And for a moment just imagine a young LGBTQ child or teen sitting there, listening to this hate speech. If there are any LGBTQ youth or teen suicides from Pastor Worley’s congregation, he has blood on his hands.
And let’s remember, like all churches, Pastor Worley’s Providence Road Baptist Church doesn’t pay taxes. And by advocating for a specific political candidate he could (and should) lose his tax-exempt status. Anyone care to contact the IRS?
North Carolina’s pastors are responsible for some of the most virulently homophobic statements imaginable in recent times, after the highly-contentious Amendment One battle which embeds discrimination into the state’s constitution and deprives same-sex couples of the right to marry.
Amendment One passed despite the fact that its sponsor, the late North Carolina state senator James Forrester, could not support any of his medical or other claims about homosexuality.
You can contact Pastor Worley on his church’s website.
Apparently the pastor has had their contact information scrubbed from their website.

The Huffington Post has a series of some of the worst statements made about LGBT people by right-wing pundits.
Lisa Derrick at FireDogLake adds:
Isn’t one of the biggest fears of the wingnuts “FEMA camps”? Even Glenn Beck says Obama is building them for Republicans. and why do you suppose The Wingnut Gummit would stop with the queers and homosexuals? They might go after oh, say Republicans who support queers and homosexuals. Or Republicans who don’t like they way their taxes are being spent. Or… Someone needs to send Pastor Worley this poem by Pastor Niemoller:
First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.
Then at 1:24, Pastor
HateWorley preaches from the pulpit:
Somebody says, Who are you gonna vote for?” I ain’t gonna vote for a baby killer and a homosexual lover.
