(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.

Put them all in a pen and they'll all die out. Sure the ones in the pen will die but that doesn't mean more won't be born you f'idiot. The only way no more will be born is to stop the heterosexuals from reproducing too but like this man's twin, Rush Limbaugh, he just doesn't get it. Problem for Pastor Worley is, the chapter of Leviticus that so many like to recite regarding homosexuality being an abomination to God also commands you should not lie w/family either. So this is a problem for those who inner marry w/cousins. A common practice in the south and used to be among the wealthy to keep wealth in families. However, Pastor Worley's message totally disregards Christ's teachings found in Matthew chapter 22, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' Christ didn't say love only your neighbors that follow the laws as yourself - he said love your neighbor - period point blank. Meaning just love them as they are. And who was Saul converted on the road to Damascus when he became Paul and if Christ could forgive Saul, then surely those that are straight can overlook those that aren't - Paul follows up on what Christ taught in Matthew 22 in the book of Romans chapter 13 when he says, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself. Love does no harm to a neighbor, therefore, love is fulfillment of the law.' I guess Pastor Worley is advocating violating the law a lot more than not observing the Sabboth when he and his wife go out to eat after church. Or when he sits down to watch his Sunday football games.
