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.”

    As I listened to the reporting on AC 360 regarding Pastor Worley’s message I agree that his words and his way of communicating his theological stand were unwise and archaic. He is being true to his convictions but his words and his way does not resonate with all people who adhere and follow the christian faith. I appreciate the fact that you had Rev. Barry Lynn on and his approach was fair.
    The concern I have is that I feel Anderson Cooper pursues people and groups who oppose the gay rights movement more often than any other cause in his show. Anderson is a very fair journalist in “Keeping Them Honest” and is excellent in his presentation but this seems to be a soap box for him. As a Canadian I feel that America is missing the boat on what your real issues are. The debt that has been incurred is alarming. Think about the fact that your candidates have spent millions of dollars for the right to run against President Barack Obama. Now for the actual election millions more will be spent by both sides. Why don’t you adjust your political system and streamline it to run like Britain or Canada do. Yes they are Parliamentary systems but when they call an election they spend much less and the election is over within 30 to 60 days of it being called. That is a huge issue in my books, much bigger than a pastor who leads a congregation of a church that seats 1200 people....really. Very few people would have heard his lack of wisdom but you in your zealous desire to keep them honest actually gave him a voice. I often listen and watch talk show host/comedian Bill Maher who consistently offers up highly offensive anecdotes against religious groups, especially Bible believing christians. CNN and AC 360 never call him on the carpet for his numerous diatribes that criticize the christian position on virtually everything. His audience is much larger and he is just one that I am mentioning. Please pursue and highlight your real issues. Freedom is what achieved your greatness....don’t blow it because you disagree.

      i argee we are all worrying about this guy when we should be worrying abou jobs and things like that instead of a pastor that just said how he feels and preaching about the bible

      CNN has called out Bill Maher on several occasions for statements he's made. The difference is that Bill is a comedian and his opinion on religious matters never discriminates against minority groups. Bill attacks fundiots when they stick their feet in their mouth but leaves moderate Christians alone...heck he often has them on as guests. Does he blaspheme? Certainly but that is expected of one who feels all faith based beliefs are supersti.tious nonsense. Are believers offended by him? Probably but that just reflects the insecurity of those who can't stand having their views challenged or that opposing views should even exist. Do I care what the faithful believe? Not a bit...that is until they try to impose their beliefs on others and especially when those beliefs restrict the rights and privileges of minority groups. Bill isn't preaching at a pulpit telling other people how they should live and behave. He isn't an authority figure and that's a HUGE difference. He's just one guy with an opinion...one I happen to agree with and that's why I find him so funny.

    I agree that there is a lot of grocery cart religious individuals in the world. That was my point earlier about divorce. They pick from the religious shelf the items they want to consume and leave the rest behind. Therefore what does it say about that mind set when you have a faith based book like the Bible? It's whole basis is faith. And when these people choose to only believe segments of the book but not others, it degrades their whole position.

      God gives to His sons and daughters all the word they need and can use to make them feel secure and if anyone thinks it a grocery shopping well, maybe God and Hs Word, the gospel is for His sans and daughters immediate needs to get them thru difficult times! God and God's Son and King of all mankind's souls will never live us even when the famines come and the hurricanes destroy and tornades wreak havoc and lightening strikes! None of these catastrophies are of Godliness nor of the devil! They are this world's true nature and she (earth) is dying ever so slowly and is drunk with the deviltries' shadows!

    What makes all of this hypocritical is that the Bible also considers divorcing your spouse a sin (Matthew 19:6: “So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has joined together, no human being must separate.”).

    Now according to statistics 51.7% of married couples get divorced. I just wanna ask the bible thumpers where is their outrage toward these divorcees. Should they not be stripped of some of their liberties and rights because of failing to abide by Gods word.

    Seems to me many of these people who "cite" the bible, pick and choose parts that support their own prejudices and apply when needed.

      And what about people committing adultery? That too is a major sin the eyes of God...Should they not be punished for not following the word of the Lord. Shouldn't they be forced to wear a scarlet red A on their chest for the rest of their life? Why should they still be rewarded the liberties ands freedoms of the righteous?

      ok lets put it this way so everyone can understand what i mean that god said in the bible that it should be one man and woman to be married and god is the opne that wrote the bible and god is the one that die for us but if you all what to say that god is wrong and u are right then that is your choose but for me and my house we will serve the lord and we will go by what god says in the bible and if you think the bible ios wrong that is your choose but this world was better back in the old days in my home we dont watch to much tv because it says in the bible do not put no evil before your eyes

      If it takes the Bible/religion for you to find self worth, that is certainly better than allowing yourself to be abused. You may find verses in the Bible that support your argument, but you can also find verses that are very negative and abusive towards women. As an atheist, I feel you should be allowed to live safely and fairly in our society regardless of your gender, race, or se xual orientation. The Bible can be used to argue the contrary.

      I don't think I said anything insulting to you. If I did, I apologize. That was not my intention. You deserve to be treated fairly. No one deserves to be abused. You, like the Bible, don't think that gays should be respected and treated fairly. I disagree with you.

    I think they should charge him with inciting violence because his followers probably got all giddy inside when he talked about hurting and getting rid of gay people. He's considered a "spiritual authority" by his flock, so he bears some responsibility for what he says. What if a political leader or a teacher had said the same thing ? Would that same speech have brought them no consequences ?

    Umm.... His logic here seems a bit misguided. Wouldn't it make more sense to mandate the sterilization of all the straight people who have gay babies? After all, they're the one's who are actually doing all the reproducing here. Of course, to be logically consistent would mean accepting the idea that being gay is an inherited genetic trait, not a lifestyle choice.

You obviously didn't go far in school, or perhaps your school just had very low standards.

      The p­o­i­n­t­s people are trying to make to you are fact. Your "B­i­b­l­e and G­o­d" c­r­a­p doesn't interest some here in this f­o­r­u­m, we are NOT going to pick up the B­i­b­l­e again.

      The B­i­b­l­e is f­u­l­l of h­y­p­o­c­r­i­s­y and f­l­a­ws that do not work in today's s­o­c­i­ety. ­The people that say they are following what G­o­d says P­R­O­M­O­T­E h­a­t­r­e­d and v­i­o­l­e­n­c­e to certain people. You forget women are to be Q­U­I­E­T and not talk and be s­u­b­s­e­r­v­i­e­n­t to their husbands according to you b­i­b­l­e AND YOU ARE TO NOT D­I­V­O­R­C­E unless the wife has c­o­m­m­it­ted a­d­u­l­t­ery. For if she did not co­mmit a­d­u­lt­ery and you divorce, you will f­o­r­c­e her to c­o­m­m­i­t a­d­u­l­t­e­r­y with the next man she l­a­y­s with. This is ALL in YOUR B­I­B­L­E.

      SO....I don't p­l­a­y­ the v­i­c­t­i­m c­a­r­d and sorry but I'm not a fan of others that do too. I don't know your situation that landed your e­x to h­i­t or b­e­a­t you and c­h­e­a­t with your best friend but It's obvious that your e­x didn't like you much and you should get better friends. BUT IF YOU ARE GOING TO FOLLOW THE B­I­B­L­E T­E­A­C­H­I­N­G­S, YOU P­R­A­C­T­I­C­E THEM ALL. You don't go c­h­e­r­ry-p­i­c­k what works for you. and forget the things that don't. THAT'S CALLED BEING A H­Y­P­O­C­R­I­T­E!

      The problem the the pastor p­r­e­a­c­h­i­n­g his s­e­r­m­o­n (above video) was s­p­i­t­t­i­n­g out H­A­T­E. H­a­t­e is h­a­t­e no matter what c­o­n­t­e­x­t it comes from. It does NOT give the right for that man to say what he wants just because there is freedom of s­p­e­e­c­h. He runs an i­n­s­t­i­t­u­tion ­t­h­a­t gets T­a­x e­x­e­m­p­ted ­and has a r­e­s­ponsibly to not p­r­o­m­o­te H­A­T­E. Besides it's just t­a­c­k­y. He looks like an i­d­i­o­t.

      G­a­y Marriage or just being G­a­y in the U­S­A is not the B­i­b­l­e or it's followers b­u­s­i­n­e­ss. You wanna know why? The U­S­A is NOT ran by r­e­l­i­g­i­o­us l­a­w. Do you know what that means? It means that no matter what your s­i­l­l­y book says on the matter, it will NOT d­i­c­t­a­t­e what will be l­e­g­a­l or not.

      If that video above didn't d­i­s­g­u­s­t ­you then your getting b­e­a­t d­o­w­n and c­h­e­a­t­e­d on is the least of your worries. You are not even h­u­m­a­n to me. The p­e­r­v­e­r­t­e­d p­r­i­e­s­t­s are the least of my worries if people like you continue to think that placing someones ci­v­i­l rights above the words of a s­t­u­p­id ­book is right.

    AST, I am glad you took 4 quotes from the Bible consisting of one sentence each from 4 different chapters from 2 different books. Try not to take things out of context. Let me give you one sentence. And it carries it's context within itself. "Judge not, lest ye be judged."

      Each verse was dealing on what 4 different Kings did to the sodomites! I should have made this clear! Now that this is cleared up, I shall repost it!

      1Kings 14:24 And there were also sodomites in the land: [and] they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.

      1Kings 15:12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.

      1Kings 22:46 And the remnant of the sodomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land.

      2Kings 23:7 And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that [were] by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.

    The days of now times are ever becoming ripe with the dew of man's honey. The generations of the now days have become like sackcloth filthy and stained with the semen of the bigots and tantalizers and mockers and scoffers of the word of Truths! Death will soon become the righteous revealers of being torn apart and as being trammpled assunder below the highest of walled in Truths! The "Majesteriums" of selfish professors being the proclaimed "holy see" will not stand too much longer and they will be plundered by the mobs' amassings! Be though as a peaceful allotments' generation and stand upright in times of trouble and calamities and mayhems! When the time comes when you are found out take heeds to what you say as there will be among lot's "perversionists" many ill deceivers of unrighteousness! They will want to taunt you out and do their will to your body's sakes! Mark well for the time of atrocities will soon be upon the homeland of the free! Be tis a direness calling to those who know and do make ready their escape! Find you safe harborages yet in the meawhile ever stand watch as to the world's moanings will be seen by all!

      Thank you for the random meaningless verses from your bible. As we are not a theocracy, your inane drivel is worthless. However, in the spirit of fairness, here are some random verses from the Primewonk bible – I happen to think my random verses make a hell of a lot more sense than yours –

      Einstein 16:24 Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

      Gould 1:15-16 Human consciousness arose but a minute before midnight on the geological clock. Yet we mayflies try to bend an ancient world to our purposes, ignorant perhaps of the messages buried in its long history. Let us hope that we are still in the early morning of our April day.

      Bohr 2:11 Anyone who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it.

      Szilard 88:16 I'm all in favor of the democratic principle that one idiot is as good as one genius, but I draw the line when someone takes the next step and concludes that two idiots are better than one genius.

      Sagan 22:1 For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reàssuring.

      Feynman 110:55 …it doesn't matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn't matter how smart you are - if it doesn't agree with experiment, it's wrong.

      Hawking 41:61 A machine that was powerful enough to accelerate particles to the grand unification energy would have to be as big as the Solar System-and would be unlikely to be funded in the present economic climate.

    He has a right to preach what he believes. Just as each poster has a right to say what they think. It isn't his fault it went viral.
