North Carolina Pastor Charles L. Worley, who called for gays to be carted up and penned in behind an electrified fence until they “die out,” isn’t new to the world of hate-filled rhetoric.
Good As You found a wonderful little audio nugget from 1978, when Worley lamented homosexuals weren’t strung up anymore.
“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,” Worley opines. “Lesbians and all the rest of it!”
He adds, “Forty years ago [gays] would’ve hung, bless God, from a white oak tree!”
Why does he keep saying ‘God bless’? Is that Carolina thing?
As Queerty reported earlier, this scuzzball has the full support of parishioners like Geneva Sims, who said:
“He had every right to say what he said, about putting them in a pen, feeding them. The Bible says they’re worthy of death. He only preaches the Word.”
If Worley preaches the Word, though, shouldn’t he be advocating killing gays—not just locking them up? Seems to us that goes against God’s clearly expressed commandment.
But, hey, we’re sure so long as Geneva keeps getting her Pall Malls and Old English, she’s a happy camper.
