Last week, Pastor Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church in North Carolina came out swinging against the homos, saying some of the craziest shit about gay people we've heard since the last time somebody said really crazy shit about gay people. Here's a snippet:
"I figured a way out, a way to get rid of all the lesbians and queers but I couldn’t get it pass the Congress – build a great big large fence, 50 or a hundred 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 so they can’t get out.
And you know what? In a few years they will die out. You know why? They can’t reproduce. If a man ever has a young'un, praise God he will be the first."
Here's the video of his entire rant:
This is one of those sensational stories I tend to ignore these days, bigotry so extreme and "out there" that taking it seriously almost seems pointless, like volunteering to debate Fred Phelps. But sometimes these incidents can provide insight into the mechanisms behind extremist bigotry simply by pushing said bigots into the spotlight and forcing them to defend their views. It's unsurprising, then, that Stacey Pritchard, a Pastor Worely supporter who appeared on Anderson Cooper yesterday, is, essentially, a complete idiot who has no idea what she's talking about.
Honestly I'm probably just as scared about the possibility of this woman reproducing as she is about the possibility of me or my girlfriend reproducing.
