[VIDEO] Pastor Condemns ‘lesbians and queers’ in Sermon Saying They ‘should be put in electrified pen to let them die off’
I am absolutely disgusted by this two-minute video and feel sick after hearing how he spoke about the homosexual community. Pastor Charles Worley, 71, decided it would be great to preach hate on Mother’s Day at Providence Road Baptist Church in North Carolina. Sadly, this Pastor who is supposed to preach about God‘s love for his children (all children) has condemned homosexuals for a very long time. A local television station was able to find a video from 1978 where his views seemed to be the same they are now.
‘We’re living in a day, when you know what, it saddens my heart to think homosexuals can go around – Bless God – and get the applause of a lot of people. Lesbians and all the rest of it – Bless God – 40 years ago they would have hung them – Bless God – from a white oak tree. Wouldn’t they? Amen. Sure they would,’ Mr Worley says on the previous recording.
Not only am I tired of hearing people judge me based on how they interpreted the Bible, but I’m fed up with us just sitting back and waiting for people to understand that we are harmless and would just like to love who we choose to love. This has nothing to do with politics or any “gay agenda“; I have enough shit going on in my life, I don’t need to be conspiring with the all the other gays about how we can ‘turn’ the rest of you breeders. Come on, how fucking ridiculous does that sound?! To me, it sounds just as stupid as believing in the Easter Bunny… He doesn’t exist, and neither does any agenda. Besides, if that was our ultimate goal, we would subsequently be condemning the human race to not exist because we’re very aware of how the reproductive system works
Also, it was hard enough to hear this man speak on something he knows NOTHING about, but hearing the cheers and ‘amens’ after what he said, was heartbreaking. I cannot believe that many people support this man and his hate-filled sermon. You are in Church to learn about God, forgiveness, love, and everything else the Bible teaches to instill good moral values. Instead, you listen to a man who is stuck in his ways, and has been since the 70′s (outdated), and ignore the lessons taught by the Bible. Who is more important to you: Pastor Charles Worley or God?
And here is what some of his congregation thinks (no wonder North Carolina is so screwed up, people like this live there):

The Mormon church has continuously changed it’s views on political issues throughout the years; Polygamy is no longer acceptable and hasn’t been since 1890, whereas ordaining black men to the priesthood was banned from holding a priesthood until 1978. In fact, people of African descent were considered to be “cursed”. Funny how now that it’s not socially acceptable to discriminate the church openly allows black and white men to be ordained and makes no mention of the black men being cursed. So it makes sense for many participating Mormon‘s to change their stance considering we are obtaining more and more rights and have more of a voice.
Above is former Mormon Bishop Kevin Kloosterman, and not only does he show his support, he extends an apology during this conference in November of 2011.
“I came out and basically made a personal apology to [LGBT] folks for really not understanding their issues, not really taking the time to understand their lives and really not doing my homework,” said Kloosterman.
I’d like to think that there was nothing behind this sudden kindness to the LGBT community, but unfortunately, with everything that has occurred with Prop 8 (which is closely tied to the Mormon church), I can’t say that I’m too sure. I do feel that the younger generation has more open-minded, free-thinkers and that as a whole, the church is growing friendlier, but I don’t feel those in charge are simply remorseful. And, I’m not the only person who feels this way.
“The church’s image is still heavily associated with the 2008 Prop. 8 campaign in California, and even though many Republicans oppose gay marriage, it’s not helpful for the Mormons to be tied to such a politically-charged issue at a time when it’s about to be under a lot of election-season media scrutiny,” wrote Commentary Magazine’s Alana Goodman, after noting that the CNN story felt like “part of some sort of Mormon church rebranding campaign.”

Guess where this lovely incident occurred in which parents taught their children that hate was okay and being gay was so wrong that they shouldn’t even be allowed to retain their employment? If you said Texas, which I’m assuming most of you did, you would be right!
Nikki Williams, 26, was not only a history teacher, but also devoted a lot of her time to be one of the high school’s basketball coaches. A threat to the children or a willing adult, devoting her time to trying to be involved and make a difference in these children’s lives? I may be biased due to the fact that I am most definitely a lesbian, but I’d say she was a typical 26-year-old female who had a passion for teaching. What a filthy dyke! Getting out there and educating those children! How could she?!
After a group of parents decided to protest a “gay” teaching their children and being employed by the school, she happened to be fired for “performance issues”. There are some parents at the Life School in Waxahachie, Texas, who are convinced the real reason for her being let go was because of her sexuality.
What’s more ridiculous about this story, is who was chosen to replace this evil dyke.
Nikki Williams, 26, was replaced by a football coach who resigned in September after a grievance was filed against him.
Grievances with other people who incite you to resign from your position, acceptable. Being a lesbian that shouldn’t affect or even be a subject matter of interest, unacceptable. I’m beginning to understand why people assume Texas is such a conservative place that is stuck a century behind the majority of us.
Dozens of parents are now circulating a petition asking to bring Williams back to school. She was fired October 18.
“I think that her being gay has nothing to do with her coaching skills,” parent Tiniqua Smith told KDAF. “She has not tried to push this off on the kids, and I don’t feel like that should be a problem.”
Wake the fuck up Texas parents who were fighting against this teacher/coach! She was damn good at her job according to many people and her sexuality shouldn’t be an issue. Are you telling me you’d rather have your kids be taught and coached by Jerry Sandusky (before being aware of the allegations) than Ms. Williams? If sexuality is your concern, then yes, your answer would be yes. Sadly, you’ve just taken your kid away from someone who has never been accused of committing such heinous crimes and placed them into the arms of a man who has gotten away with many molestations (if the allegations are determined truthful). You’d rather them not be influenced into becoming gay than having their childhood’s taken away and a life of insecurity thrown on their backs? If so, you are the ones we should be protesting as parents. You should most certainly NOT be educating our youth.
Protect your children. Love your children. Let your children be who THEY want to be; If you don’t allow this for your children, then you’re holding them back and risking that they may have problems in the future because of what you didn’t approve of at the time. Stop being selfish.

Burke Burnett, 26, and three of his gay friends decided to attend a party on Saturday night in Reno, Texas, and had no idea that it would turn into a nightmare. Instead of being welcomed like the rest of the guests, they were greeted with comments, such as, “These faggots don’t deserve to be here. Somebody needs to get them out of there.”
I’m sorry but what was so great about the men who were making these accusations of being deserving or not? And what did they have to offer that they deserved to be there? Oh that’s right, because they like vagina. Wouldn’t you think that the more men there that aren’t after the same thing as you would be a good thing? No, you’re too simple-minded, ignorant, and bigoted to recognize the obvious and get past your unjustified hatred of a community you know nothing about.
All the men had left the party, but Burnett didn’t hear the remarks previously said about him and his friends and decided to return. This was an awful mistake. Sadly, homosexuals have to worry about things like going to a party, which is absolutely fucking ridiculous.
It was then that one attacker punched Burnett in his left eye and another stabbed him hard in the back with a broken beer bottle.
As his assailants yelled “pussy-ass faggot,” “gay bitch,” “cocksucking punk,” and other insults, Burnett was stabbed a second time, deep in his right forearm, and thrown onto a lit barrel.
One of Burnett’s female friends was able to distract the four shit heads while he ran to the parking lot to flee the assault. A friend was kind enough to take the poor beaten down gay man to the hospital where he received 30 stitches and treatment for 3rd degree burns.
Burnett says he knows his attackers, one of them personally, and he’s certain they had intended to kill him. “I’m scared for my life. I’m scared to go home,” he told theDallas Voice. “These guys have nothing to lose.”
Reno is a small, conservative suburb of Paris, TX, with a population of only 3,086 people. Burnett’s gay friends worry that local authorities may ignore or downgrade the attack, despite Texas’ tough new hate-crime law. And, so far, the mainstream press has yet to pick up the story.
“I intend to make sure the Police Department follows through with this, and that the local press covers it,” Burnett’s friend Chivas Clem told the Voice. “When I saw him, I vomited because he looked so bad — and I cried.”
We’re counting on the authorities to pursue this case to its fullest extent and the community to stand up against such horrific attacks. We’re waiting.
This is truly pathetic. Not only did the poor guy have to get beaten, nearly to death, but now he’s afraid for his life. The police should be more involved and helpful. Beating someone, no matter who is on the receiving end, is wrong, and it’s for this reason that we employee police to protect us and the communities we live in.
Even here in West Hollywood gay men have to worry while walking the streets alone. Three in the past month of October have been beaten and gay bashed. These people deserve respect and dignity until they personally offend you in a legitimate way. Only then can you lose respect, but never will it be okay to beat someone because of your differences.
Spread the word. Fight hate. Now is the time for change, but in order for change to be made, people need to step up, do the right thing, and punish the people who are committing these heinous crimes.

“God finds this somewhat gay-like behavior confusing, and He responded by getting mildly peeved.” Pat Robertson
Evangelist, Pat Robertson, had a lot to say about the earthquakes on the East Coast during his 700 Club program. This isn’t too shocking because he often preaches hatred and ignorance, but it’s getting a bit ridiculous, in my opinion.
“All across the Eastern seaboard, there are men who get manicures, wear designer eyewear and know about thread counts,” Rev. Robertson. “God finds this somewhat gay-like behavior confusing, and He responded by getting mildly peeved.”
As I watched and listened to what he was saying, he sounded strikingly familiar. I tried to understand where I had heard these words before, and then it hit me; I had heard similar statements from the Westboro Baptist Church. He mentioned that if Americans wanted to continue to act in a “seemingly sort-of-gay behavior,” then we should be aware that God Almighty would take vengeance and show his anger for our actions.
“God will strike back at people who act sort of gay with all kinds of mild responses,” he said. “If you keep getting pedicures and facials, you can expect two to three inches of rain and some really hot humid days in your future.”
If this were true (and I highly doubt it is) global warming, droughts, etc. would not be a problem for us, Mr. Robertson. Plenty of women, both gay and straight, have been getting pedicures, manicures, and facials for years. In fact, plenty of men (whether they’ve been open homosexuals is another question) have been pampered themselves in previous years. I doubt that our political stance on gay marriage has prompted God to take action, and mild action, at that.
And another thing, could you imagine Native Americans back in the day getting pedicures and facials instead of doing rain dances to incite weather changes? This would have been spectacular! The main reason this would have been so great is the simple fact that these acts alone wouldn’t be deemed feminine or homosexual, but necessary and therefore, accepted by all.
“God looks at people who get their panties in a twist after a little shaking, and He says to Himself, ‘Wow, that’s really kind of gay,’” he said.
I love that God talks like a middle schooler and finds our reaction to something unfamiliar “kind of gay.” That doesn’t sound like the omniscient God that was described to me in Church. And how narcissistic of Mr. Pat Robertson to assume that God would be devoting time to condemn gays in New York, rather than help out people who are in need. What a petty man this God is acting like. And you know what, I don’t like petty and judgmental.
Does God like it when people stand up to persecutors?! Because, although I don’t believe in his existence, if I did, I’d be willing to bet he’d stand behind my message and not yours. So, in closing, Fuck you Mr. Pat Robertson.
The link above takes you to a site that has GREAT signs FOR gay marriage. Most people are familiar with the Westboro Baptist Church and their signs:
The ones on the website above are in response to many like these, from all over. Except, they aren’t so harsh, cruel and without class.
Michele Bachmann has been making the rounds in the media these days, and for good reason. I recently read something that she said in response to a question about how she felt about Fred Phelps (leader of The Westboro Baptist Church). I was shocked and outraged by her response:
“I almost think that the gay community has hired this guy, or created this guy, to do what he does. He is their best friend.”
This is utterly ridiculous! Does she also believe that they’re helping the families who go to funerals of their fallen soldiers and have to face this churches condemnation?! Anyone that can justify any of this “clergy’s” actions, should not be considered to represent “the people” of America. This not only insults me, but makes me ashamed; Not for who I am, but for trying to be fair in my judgment of her.
She refers to people that call themselves homosexuals as having a “very real issue of sexual dysfunction in their life, and sexual identity disorders.”
I think she may be holding on to this definition of homosexuality because her poor husband would have no other excuse for his closeted gayness. Maybe I’m wrong though and his gay exorcism program really is working out well. Although, I don’t think I am. It seems more fitting that he’s gay, she’s a bitch, and the homosexuals are tired of being gay bashed by an ignorant politician.

This video doesn’t make me angry so much as it makes me laugh. It is ironic how they speak over this individual, and yet stop him in his tracks when he speaks after thinking they have finished. The things that they mention or discuss make no sense, and they give NO ONE an opportunity to speak to them about THEIR opinions. They are so brainwashed that they know if they listened to anything logical, they may call into question their whole sense of self-worth. Pathetic.
