Last Sunday, a North Carolina pastor condemned President Obama's support for same-sex marriage during his sermon. Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church went on to preach his solution to "get rid of all the lesbians and queers." The message to his followers was caught on tape, but has since been removed from the church's website.
"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 feed them. And you know what, in a few years they'll die out. Do you know why? They can't reproduce," he said.
Anderson Cooper spoke with Rev. Welton Gaddy, President of Interfaith Alliance, about the anti-gay speech and Worley's comments against Obama's reelection. "I see nothing Christian about it and nothing American about it," said Gaddy.
Gaddy rebuked Worley for discrediting the compassion found in the bible and dangerously "planting seeds of hatred in sick minds."
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
