Video of North Carolina pastor's plan to 'get rid of' gays goes viral

By Dan Gilgoff, CNN.com Religion Editor

(CNN) - Video of a North Carolina pastor preaching that gays and lesbians should be rounded up inside an electric fence is going viral on the Internet, two weeks after North Carolina passed a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage and President Barack Obama voiced personal support for legalizing such marriages.

"I figured a way out, a way to get rid of all the lesbians and queers, but I couldn't get it past the Congress," Pastor Charles L. Worley can be seen telling his Providence Road Baptist Church congregation in the video, which had more than 250,000 YouTube views by Tuesday.

"Build a great big, large fence - 50 or a 100 miles long - and put all the lesbians in there,” Worley went on to say in his May 13 sermon at his Maiden, North Carolina, church. “Fly over and drop some food. Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals, and have that fence electrified so they can't get out. Feed them. And you know in a few years, they'll die out. You know why? They can't reproduce."

My Take: The Bible condemns a lot, but here's why we focus on homosexuality

The video had initially been posted on Providence Road’s website but was recently taken down, according to CNN affiliate WBTV-TV in Charlotte.

The phone line at Worley’s church was busy on Monday night and on Tuesday, as was Worley’s home number on Tuesday.

The church’s website was down Tuesday morning, but it had described the house of worship as fundamentalist, meaning it represents a Baptist tradition that's more conservative than the Southern Baptists.

My Take: The Christian case for gay marriage

Worley’s sermon was posted on YouTube by a group called Catawba Valley Citizens Against Hate, which is organizing a protest at the Providence Road Baptist Church on Sunday.

Addressing his congregation last Sunday, Worley referred to his earlier controversial sermon.

"I talked a little bit, I believe it was last Sunday, on the homosexual lifestyle, and there was a whole lot of people who didn't like what I said," Worley told his congregation Sunday, according to WBTV. "I want to read it out of the Bible, and then we'll go from there."

“Listen, all of the Sodomites, the lesbians, and all of the ... what's that word? Gays - I didn't wanna say 'queers' - that say we don't love you, I love you more than you love yourself,” Worley said, according to WBTV. “I'm praying for you to be saved."

Worley’s initial sermon was partly framed as a response to Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriage, which he made in a TV interview a day after North Carolina voters passed a state constitutional amendment banning legal recognition of such marriages and other types of gay unions.

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, or GLAAD, was working Tuesday to gather criticism of Worley’s comments from other North Carolina pastors.

“I am angry and sick at heart over Pastor Worley's comments,” said the Rev. Dennis Teall-Fleming, pastor at Open Hearts Gathering in Gastonia, North Carolina, in a statement distributed by GLAAD.

“Nothing he says has anything to do with the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” said Teall-Fleming, who leads a Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) congregation. “I call on all Christian and Baptist organizations that have any connection with him to condemn his comments as strongly as I do, including Providence Road Baptist Church of Maiden.”

    You know what I don't understand, why anyone cares about who other people sleep with. Here's a thought, if you don't like it then don't be gay. There it is simple. If one day it comes down to us facing God's judgement, I would much rather leave it up to him to judge. I love how people think that they can play God, if your a true believer than you would leave judgement day to him.

    I have 4 lesbian friends, I know they truly love their partners and I want nothing but happiness for them. What strikes me as odd is they all grew up with dad's that were total jerks. I can't say for sure if I think being gay is a choice or decided by nature, but it TO ME it seems like most gay people come from a dysfunctional family or didn't fit in with their all american peers and found comfort in the gay culture. By the way I go to a southern baptist church that welcomes gay couples and we don't handle snakes (except on really special holidays). The churches that turn away gay people because they think they have sinned, have truly misunderstood Christ teachings.

    May 22, 2012 at 9:30 pm |
    • DeeCee1000

      You should read up on what the scientific community and their studies have to say about gays and lesbians. You would be doing yourself and your lesbian friends' a huge favor instead of thinking that all gay people are gay because they come from dysfunctional families. Most gay people I know have come from totally "normal" average religious families.

    • tnfreethinker

      My lesbian friends have wonderful, supportive fathers & mothers. One has a crazy mom, but that's just the odds 🙂 Although I believe being gay is not a choice – and every reputable medical and mental health organization agrees – so what if it was. People should mind their own business. Love is great and should be celebrated. Hate is ignorant and needs to be educated.

    • Fred

      Kebos – the reason America is dying a slow (or fast depending on how u look at it) is because everyone has their own agenda, wants to do what they want etc. The values/morals the country was founded on are gone. That is the REAL problem. If we accept gays, do we also accept child molestors, rapists, murderers etc? Everyone keeps saying we have to love EVERYONE. Make up your mind people!

      Observer: I know plenty of Christians who acknowledge that they believe the Bible is wildly inconsistent in many areas. They tend to be the ones I consider the most Christian – the ones who say "OK, instead of looking at specifics, what is repeated over and over? Love each other, take care of those less fortunate, don't hate on folks".

    • Tom, Tom, the Piper's Son

      Exactly, Living. The truly exemplary Christians I know are those who are far too busy doing something good for others to judge anyone. They're not busy braying every chapter and verse they know at others to try to impress anyone with their ability to memorize Biblical passages. They aren't interested in the minutiae. They don't care how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.

    Hmmm… sounds like a Nazi concentration camp… I thought we fought against that in WWII? Oh well, I guess this is just another example of our wonderful “Freedom of Speech” or should I say FREEDOM TO HATE!? What about the reproduction statement… So, straight Christian couples who might have any kind of infertility problem and cannot reproduce are living in sin? Is it their destiny to die without purpose? Or is he going to say that they are “possessed” or have any demons inside? Flip thru a history book and you will see that not too long ago, people like this “pastor” captured African natives and shipped them to the Americas saying “throw them in the fields, feed them, and use them as slaves, because they are different from us; they where sent by god to be our property”.

    Here we have a wild Pastor. They are indiginous to this habitat, but rarely come out their cave. They spend most of their time in the sun; either sun bathing, relaxing, dictating the media and the word of God, or simply taking in the rays. Their diet consists of mostly nuts, dried leaves, roots, gummy worms. Really anything you can find in the ground. They are completely defenseless. They rely mostly on faith and speed to run from their predetors. Usually shouting alot and/or playing dead detures the enemies in another direction. This is Idontcare reporting to you from the OnTheRun Wildlife preserve. thank you and have a good day

    The pastor has a job that he failed to do. His number one role should be to preach God's love, not offer his own bigoted opinion about others. The only thing he should be wrapping around gay and lesbian people is an embrace. Truly a disappointment.

    And sorry atheists but you have it wrong, and no one needs to prove anything to you, that's why it is called "faith." You'll get all the proof you need one day, hopefully not the day after the end of your earthly life. cheers!

    • Hawk

      @pete – If there is a god, or gods, who is to say that it is *your* god? What if it is the gods of Norse pantheon? Or the Egyptians? Or what if it is the gods of ancient Babylon? Even if I were to accept your hypothesis that some god exists, no one has shown me evidence of which god it actually would be.

      And really, any so-called "supreme being" who is so insecure as to punish me for eternity for failing to worship him or her, does not deserve my worship. A truly loving god would love me unconditionally – whether I believed or not. They would base my "afterlife reward" not on if I believed, but in how I treated others and if I was a good person or not. Finally, "eternal" punishment would never occur to a just and wise god. You don't torture a child for 5 years because they didn't get an A in math class – so what sense is it to punish someone for eternity (which is rather long) for any other transgression? You obviously don't expect them to learn from their mistake. If they are being punished for eternity, ten the only thing you are doing is satisfying your own desire for revenge and torture.

    I became an atheist 61 years ago – when I was 13 years old. I was fortunate enough to have attended churches led by decent, thoughtful pastors instead of creeps and cretins like Worley. Never looked back.

    That is until I began to encounter the gospel of "hate your fellow human" when I became active in the civil rights movement. Lots of years have passed and time have gotten measurably better. Well, a little better. But, while fools like this continue to lead other willing fools down the primrose path against civil rights for all Americans – I hold out little hope for peace, brotherhood and sisterhood among Americans.

    And I don't see a whole boatload of fellow Christians standing up against this crud.

      I am a Christian, I refuse to say "a fellow Christian" because I bear no kinship to this pastor other than being a member of the same human species. I am against the "gospel of hate" in general, and it's evil twin "the gospel of greed". There are many Christians, even those of us in NC, who reject this hate speech. The media isn't exactly fond of us because we don't make inflamatory remarks that generate lots of comments, so we get a lot less press. I guess acceptance, kindness & love don't make good press.

      Why is it that the religious almost always are the ones filling their posts with grammatical errors, phonetically spelled words, CAPS ALL OVER THE PLACE, and generally riddled with spelling errors? I do concur about reading the Bible. The Bible, read cover to cover, is one of the strongest arguments for atheism there is, assuming you're not already brainwashed into believing Bronze age tribal gibberish is the "word of God."

      Nabateans had Gods .. it appears you choose not to understand. No I do not think of the Bible the way the "regulars" do, I believe I already stated that. It's a book with tales and stories and letters to other followers in other places, it has good things in it and good ideas in it .. but none of that makes Jesus supernatural or God real.

      Because most of them barely made it through high school in their little one-horse towns. There are some smart posters here who are believers, but the ones who are dumber than dirt make them all look bad. It just slays me when some dumbazz who can't spell "mud" tries to tell me what the Bible means.

      I must say, though, that I agree with momoya–she said she was glad for the idiotic posters because they make their myopic points of view so obviously ridiculous they do their own cause more harm than any atheist could. And this bozo of a preacher is right up there with them. I'm thrilled to see this video because even the densest of the thumpers should be able to see such hate for what it is.

      Yes shadowcandy, I've read it .. I found it highly flawed and the author was a "skeptic" not an Atheist, that would be more of a Agnositic.

  18. If horses had Gods ... their Gods would be horses

    Following the good Pastor's advice I'd say .. Put "belivers" in a fenced in camp with no food or water and have them pray for it ... I bet they'd be gone in a matter of weeks!

      You're no better than the preacher in the video.

    At the end of the day we're accountable for our own actions and words. So do what you want.

      Accountable to ?? Society, a God(s) or ourselves?

      Does it matter to who? It's universal. It wouldn't change either way you cut it.

      Sure it does, accountable to society or ourselves is here and now, accountable to a God(s) is hereafter and you can dismiss what you do to others if you believe you'll be saved anyway.

      Any person that can dismiss their hatred towards others and believed they'll be saved needs to reevaluate Christianity. If God is just, and I believe he is, people like the preacher will get their just deserts.

      @shadowpcandy: how can there be such disagreement among believers when "the word of god" is so clear and absolute ? Perhaps all you believers should get together to sort this all out. And after you are finished, let the rest of us know what the real "truth" is. Here is a hint: gods are imaginary.
