Following the deadliest shooting in U.S. history, a Baptist preacher stood at his pulpit Sunday night in Northern California and delivered an impassioned sermon praising the brutal massacre at a gay nightclub in Florida.

Pastor Roger Jimenez from Verity Baptist Church in Sacramento told his congregation that Christians “shouldn’t be mourning the death of 50 sodomites.”

“People say, like: Well, aren’t you sad that 50 sodomites died?” Jimenez said, referencing the initial death toll in Orlando, which authorities later clarified included 49 victims plus the gunman. “Here’s the problem with that. It’s like the equivalent of asking me — what if you asked me: ​Hey, are you sad that 50 pedophiles were killed today?’

“Um, no, I think that’s great. I think that helps society. You know, I think Orlando, Fla., is a little safer tonight.”

He added: “The tragedy is that more of them didn’t die. The tragedy is — I’m kind of upset that he didn’t finish the job!”

What a fool. Thank you for making Christianity look even worse in the public eye. Whatever happened to loving everyone as commanded by Jesus Christ. This man has no right to preach. He is no man of God.
This not the word of God. This is garbage. Absolute trash.
Sorry. We're not all like this idiot. He is no Christian. I'm sure there is good in him somewhere to be loved but this is hideous.

Ah, yes, I remember that part of the Bible.

"Love thy neighbour. But not like, in a gay way or anything. I mean, no homo. Fuck those guys, amirite?"

Same guy that hit the club also wants to hit your church; if they can't be safe, neither will you.

The Bible doesn't say anything about that.

I'm fully aware that not all Christians are like this, I was raised in a Catholic family, but this is one example of why I'm not involved with religion at all. The amount of hypocrisy that I find in religion these days is terrifying to me, it is a true miracle to find someone who actually takes God's words to heart and lives by them without condemning any social group that doesn't follow his or her principles.

I see it as all the more reason I need to be involved. I wish to help quell this hypocrisy.

This guy doesn't mince words does he?

It wouldn't do any good, thanks to propaganda. "Cut off one of the hydra's head two more grow back in its place." And besides, what did it accomplish than to generate sympathy for those who were the victims anyhow. Idiot.
