A number of right-wing authorities have come forward with anti-gay pleas in recent weeks, but one Maryland-based pastor has gone one step further, saying he “kind of likes” the idea of killing lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people.
As Good As You blogger Jeremy Hooper reports, a pastor identified as Dennis Leatherman of the Mountain Lake Independent Baptist Church in Oakland, Md., spoke at length on the subject in a 50-minute sermon titled “Homosexuality and the Bible.”
“To be…have a tendency to be effeminate or homosexual is just as wicked as to have a tendency to be a womanizer,” Leatherman proclaims in a short audio clip from the sermon, the full text of which can be read here.
He continues: “Sinful nature does not justify sinful behavior. Now what is our take? What is our response?”
