Maiden, NC Christianity

There is nothing like living amidst good Christians.

From the Charlotte Observer today:
"MAIDEN -- It started in a small-town church pulpit on Mother’s Day: a preacher calling for gays and lesbians to be placed in a type of concentration camp. Worley, 71, suggested building a large fence, 100 or 150 miles long, so lesbians would be put in one area “and the queers and the homosexuals in another, and have that fence electrified so they can’t get out.” After using Biblical passages that he said supported his argument, Worley outlined a plan to put gays and lesbians in confinement behind an electrified fence. “Feed ’em, and you know what?” Worley said. “In a few years, they’ll die. Do you know why? They can’t reproduce.” Some members of the congregation can be heard saying “Amen” in response to the pastor’s remarks.
The 300-member church originally placed the video on its website, but it was removed over the weekend. But the video is still posted on YouTube, where it has drawn more than 165,000 views.
The May 13 sermon was critical of President Barack Obama’s announcement, days earlier, that he supports same-sex marriage. Worley told his congregation that he couldn’t vote for a “baby-killer and a homosexual lover.”
I found myself wondering when the good reverend Worley would realize that if he installed a few good old fashioned gas chambers, he wouldn't have to feed them nearly so long.
