It’s shocking to me the lengths that conservative Christians will go to when discussing homosexuality. Some focus DC Comics and their recent announcement to bring a prominent character out of the closet. After watching DC Nation on Cartoon Network last Saturday and seeing the shorts with Vibe, my bet is on him! Others are still focused on President Obama’s announcement a few weeks ago that his views on same sex-marriage have evolved. Still others focus on the NAACP‘s announcement to support same-sex marriages (here and here). But, it’s not surprising that all have been silent about “Pastor” Charles Worley’s comments during a sermon:
“I figured a way to get rid of all the lesbians and queers,” he says in his sermon, delivered on May 13. “Build a great, big, large fence — 150 or 100 mile long — put all the lesbians in there… 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.” (HT)
Really? The “Pastor’s” solution is to put LGBT individuals in Internment Camps or Concentration Camps? I don’t know which is more disturbing, the fact that he said this in a “sermon” or the chorus of “Amen’s” that came from the “congregation” in response to his comments. Nothing shows the love of Christ like blatant discrimination and sheer contempt for one’s neighbor. Comments like this stand against the Gospel!
Shenanigans like this make me sick. And the fact that conservative Christian bloggers are silent about this type of nonsense from the pulpit…well, that saddens me, proving once again that they are overly critical of liberal Christians, but refuse to take a critical look in the mirror.
