The pastor, identified on YouTube
as Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, N.C., condemns President Obama's much-publicized endorsement of same-sex marriage while calling for gays and lesbians to be put in an electrified pen and ultimately killed off, the Huffington Post
The video was published to YouTube on May 21, 2012 by Catawba Valley Citizens Against Hate. It has already racked up almost 21,000 views and counting.
"Build a great, big, large fence -- 150 or 100 mile long -- put all the lesbians in there, fly over and drop some food, " Worley suggests in the clip.
He continues: "Do the same thing for the queers and the homosexuals and have that fence electrified so they can't get out...and you know what, in a few years, they'll die out...do you know why?" he pauses for effect. "They can't reproduce!"
When asked who he would vote for he yells: "I'll tell you who I ain't gonna vote for, a baby killer and a homosexual lover!"
"Amen" can be heard echoing around the sanctuary.
And just in case you think it was a slip of tongue. "Did I mean to say that?" he asks rhetorically.
He puts his hand by his mouth as if to call someone home who is a long way off, "You better believe I did!" he yells.
Worley added, “It makes me pukin’ sick to think about -- I don’t even whether or not to say this in the pulpit -- can you imagine kissing some man?”
Pastor Worley's comments come weeks after Pastor Sean Harris
of the Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville, NC who advocated and then apologized for giving parents permission to "punch" their male child if he is effeminate and "crack that wrist" if he is limp-wristed.
Catawba Valley Citizens Against Hate says under the description that the above clip was taken from a sermon posted to the church's website dated May 13, 2012 -- a website that Facebook
user Morghan Shannon has announced has been taken down since Worley's debut on the Huffington Post, where there are over 5,000 comments and over 100 in que.
"The Church website is completly [sic] gone now!" she writes.
But Facebook user David Jordan found that he had more than one website
. "His other website is still up," he said.
And Worley's comments haven't gone unnoticed by the surrounding community in North Carolina. According to Catawba Valley Citizens Against Hate's Facebook
page a protest is already planned for Sunday, May 27.
The group also started a petition
at change.org entitled, "Pastor Charles L. Worley: Step down as Pastor of Providence Road Baptist Church in North Carolina"
And another petition
entitled, "Tell NC Pastor to Resign Over LGBT Hate Sermon" has been started tonight to: "Tell Worley the world is watching, and it wants him to resign," the petition letter says.
