Or just outright stupidity and bigotry?
So…some Pastor (Rev. Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, N.C.) recently said:
I figured a way to get rid of all the lesbians and queers, but I couldn’t get it past the Congress. Build a great, big, large fence — 150 or 100 mile long — put all the lesbians in there, fly over and drop some food. Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals and have that fence electrified ’til they can’t get out. … And you know what? In a few years, they’ll die out.
I suppose he might claim suddenly that he was “only kidding around.” That He didn’t mean it.” He was “only joking.”
Truthfully, I cannot fathom how that could be a joke you would tell in a sermon at church. I mean, for one thing? Jokes are supposed to be funny.
