Protest planned outside church of homophobe pastor

The Charlotte O reports this morning that:

“A group calling itself Catawba Valley Citizens Against Hate says it plans a peaceful protest Sunday outside Providence Road Baptist Church, an independent Baptist church where Rev. Charles Worley delivered his controversial homily on May 13.”

For more information, check out the Facebook page of the citizens group here. The church website appears to be down (surprise!), but it is located at 3283 Providence Mill Road, Maiden, NC.

    Such hate language is a result of the political party in power in NC and other states. When political leaders of any party begin to demean the value of any citizen or group of citizens there are always those who see it as the starting pistol for unbridled discrimination.

    It seems that the church has the habit of jumping on the bandwagon of such issues so as to validate hate language and behavior directed toward fellow citizens.

    And yes there is the theory that preacher espouse of “love the sinner hate the sin”, whatever that means, but the fact is the line is blurry and attacks on people is usually the outcome.

    In my view the days of peaceful protests are over. It’s time for direct action. This man is the second coming of Adolf Hitler and should be targeted as such.

    Why would you want to waste time with a nut ?

    I grew up listening to this type of ignorant talk in church. I came close to suicide because of it. Oh sure the church would say, “We love the sinner, but hate the sin” but then they would proceed to make fun of gay people and talk about how disgusting they are and they should all be castrated, etc. etc. Doesn’t do much to encourage self esteem in a gay person who realizes they didn’t choose their orientation, and that they cannot change to become what is acceptable to the church leaders. It saddens me to think how many young people do take their own lives because of the indoctrinations of churches like this one.
