Church Member Defends Pastor Worley’s Electric Fence

Jim Burroway

May 25th, 2012

You see, part of the problem is that when Pastor Charles Worley said that “I figured a way out  to get rid of all the lesbians and queers” by putting them behind an electric fence, it was all taken out of context.

I just don’t know what to say in the face of such towering, self-centred, condescending, emotionally dead, herculean, invincible stupidity.

Truly, a piece of work.

Well I clicked on the link hoping to read a comment from Ben in Oakland, he has such a way with words.
But Ivan, that said, I enjoyed your comment.

Jeee yiminy!

Sometimes, I cannot believe how jaw dropping dumb some people are in their OWN HYPOCRISY!!
Her eye rolling impatience with AC, was just symptomatic of not having any concern with how inconsistently and selectively religious people actually live their lives.
The pastor MEANT what he said, and can’t even own it.
People like her, and her pastor, so quick to incite the MOB mentality. So indifferent to the risks they put gay people in, as if it’s not a serious reality in OUR country, let alone the middle East.

I do NOT like people that dumb and incapable of rubbing to critical thoughts together, I REALLY don’t.

Ivan, in the South we say, “Well, bless her heart!”

I give her a lot of credit. She did a great job in helping to further redefine the public image of Christianity in America. :)

What other ‘context’ is there for a speech like Worley’s other than being heard in The Onion or Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest?

And where are the congregation members and notable Christians lining up to be interviewed to decry this sort of violent homophobia?
