Pastor: The Government Should Kill Gay People

Didn't have your cravings for insanity and bigotry sated by North Carolina Pastor Charles L. Worley, who called for gay men and lesbians to be put behind separate electric fences (because if we just separated gay men from lesbians, they would stop reproducing and gay people would die out)? Well, Kansas to the rescue.

 In a sermon last Sunday, New Hope Baptist Church Pastor Curtis Knapp unequivocally called for the government to put gay people to death. That's unlike when Andy Gipson, who, despite citing Leviticus 18:22, which calls for gay men to be put to death, denied that he intended to insinuate that gay people should be put to death. Yet Knapp didn't shy away from what that scripture clearly says. In his sermon, Pastor Curtis Knapp told the church thus:
"They should be put to death. That's what happened in Israel. That's why homosexuality wouldn't have grown in Israel. It tends to limit conversions. It tends to limit people coming out of the closet. — 'Oh, so you're saying we should go out and start killing them, no?' — I'm saying the government should. They won't but they should. 'Oh, I can't believe you you're horrible. You're a backwards neanderthal of a person.' Is that what you're calling scripture? Is God a neanderthal backwards in his morality? Is it his word or not? If it's his word, he commanded it. It's his idea—not mine. And I'm not ashamed of it."
Is it just me, or has President Obama's embrace of marriage equality really brought the crazies out of the woodwork? Or at least, out of the closets. Listen to audio from the sermon below:
