It’s Not Like the Good Old Days When We Could Just Hang ‘Em

More love. This time from the same guy in 1978

I’m God’s preacher. I just believe the book. Living in a day when, you know what, it saddens my heart to think that homosexuals can go around, bless God, and get the applause of a lot of people. Lesbians and all the rest of it? Bless God, forty years ago they’d have hung ‘em, bless God, from a white oak tree, wouldn’t they? Amen.

– North Carolina pastor Charles Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church during a sermon in 1978.

Today, he just wants to round ‘em up and put them behind electric fences where they’d just die off naturally. You see? There’s progress.

Take these people at their word. 70 years ago, a similar madman and his followers rounded up all 4 of my grandparents behind barbed wire electrified fences and them murdered them in gas chambers and cremated their bodies, just as he said he would.
