Well, you've got to give it to North Carolina Pastor Charles Worley: He says what he means.

Worley had a pretty strong reaction to President Obama's marriage equality endorsement. And he wants to make it clear that, while he used to be against Obama, now he's SUPER SUPER against the "baby-killer" and "homosexual-lover." And, as far as he's concerned, all the "lesbians and queers" should be locked up in an enclosed space and kept in with an electric fence. Eventually they'll die out, because "they can't reproduce."

Follow me below the fold for the video and more.

Here's the worst of Worley's comments, preached to the congregation of Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, North Carolina, courtesy of ThinkProgress:

I figured a way out--a way to get rid of all the lesbians and queers. But I couldn’t get it passed through Congress. Build a great big large fence, 150 or 100 miles long. Put all the lesbians in there. Fly over and drop some food. Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals. Have that fence electrified so they can’t get out. Feed ‘em, and- And you know what? In a few years they’ll die out. You know why? They can’t reproduce.
Apparently lesbians are no longer homosexuals.

Here's the video:

Here's the full transcript, in case you can't watch the video:

Of our President, gettin' up and sayin' that it was all right for two women to marry or two men to marry, I'll tell you right now, I was disappointed bad. But I'll tell you right there, it's as sorry as you can get. The Bible's again' it, God's again' it, I'm again' it, and if you've got any sense you're again' it! I figured a way out--a way to get rid of all the lesbians and queers. But I couldn’t get it passed through Congress. [sick laughter] Build a great big large fence, 150 or 100 miles long. Put all the lesbians in there. Fly over and drop some food. Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals. Have that fence electrified so they can’t get out. Feed ‘em, and- And you know what? In a few years they’ll die out. You know why? They can’t reproduce. [sick outbursts of approval] If a man ever has a youngin', praise God it'll be the first'n. All of these...man, I'm gonna preach the hell out of all of us. Hey! I'll tell you right now, if somebody said, "Who you gonna vote for?" I ain't gonna vote for a baby-killer and a homosexual-lover! [sick shouts of "Amen!"] You said, "Did you mean to say that?" You better believe I did! [more sick shouts of "Amen!"] God have mercy! It makes me pukin' sick! To think about--I don't even know whether y'all are say this in the pulpit or not. [Huh?] Could you imagine kissin' some man? [sick laughter] My God, I love you fellers.
Well there you have it. Pastor Charles Worley is not voting for Obama. You done lost his vote, Mr. President!

What I find even sicker than Worley's comments is the fact that his congregation found them to be funny and shouted "Amen!" several times during the sermon. Just another day, another example of the "Christian love" of fundamentalists.

And by the way, Pastor Worley, I can imagine "kissin' some man," because I have. And it's fantastic. I bet you imagine that a lot, don't you?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
