(Newser) – North Carolina pastor Charles Worley has an, er, unorthodox suggestion for how to spread God's love to gay people. "Build a great, big, large fence—150 or 100 miles 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," he suggested in a sermon last week, which was posted to YouTube today and spotted by the Huffington Post and other blogs.

"You know what, in a few years, they'll die out," he continued. "Do you know why? They can't reproduce!" Worley's comments were in response to President Obama's declaration that he supported gay marriage. "I ain't gonna vote for a baby killer and a homosexual lover!" Worley yells. In the full video on the church's website, Worley goes on to specify that though homosexuality makes him "pukin' sick," he's against the sin, not the sinners. He wants homosexuals to "get saved," meaning, presumably, that he doesn't actually want to kill them all.
