This Man is not Christian.

I ain’t gonna vote for a baby killer and a gay lover!

This man is a shame and an embarassment to Jesus and all who follow Him.

Hate is not Love:

“I figured a way to get rid of all the lesbians and queers. Build a great, big, large fence — 150- or 100-mile-long — put all the lesbians in there… Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals and have that fence electrified so they can’t get out… And you know what, in a few years, they’ll die.”

Ironically, his plan doesn’t seem to work—feeding the LGBTQ community for free might be nice of him, but the fence would hardly keep future gay brothers and lesbian sisters from being born—though in would, in a stroke, put his “Christianity” in league with Hitler’s concentration camps.

“God have mercy. It makes me pukin’ sick to think about…I don’t even whether or not to say this in the pulpit…can you imagine kissing some man?”

“Notice the “Amens” from the congregation throughout.”

    apparently he wants his church's 501c3 tax exempt status revoked. With all that extra time on his hands he can git to littering the earth with more "youngin" as he'll have plenty of church approved/supplied Viagra and plenty of Christian women not on birth control.

    Charles should try a Yoga class, maybe he would feel better about himself then.

    seems to me what is and isn't a christian is a matter of ideological opinion – one could argue that there is a very high, perhaps majority percentage of on the planet (and even in america) people who identify as christian that would be if not in this guy's ballpark, only slightly to the left…

    there is a tendency we have to want to take ancient beliefs/scriptures and kinda revise them to fit our current liberal belief systems – like what jesus REALLY meant or what buddha REALLY meant or what patanjali/the gita is REALLY saying….

    this adds up to us imbuing ancient teachers/books with modern/postmodern values that probably are not really there. we do this in an attempt to both soften ancient texts and create a sense that our current values have some ancient authority and are somehow connected to an ultimate enduring timeless truth – when truth, and especially moral truth has been evolving for thousands of years.

    we can make a case for modern liberal values as the correct and most beneficial ones without trying to interpret ancient teachings as their source.

    we can also recognize that ancient scriptures are not a good source of modern liberal values because they are from a more primitive, superstitious, parochial time, which is entirely understandable and the best they could do!

    and yea of course this guy is a bigoted hateful prick – but then that puts him right at home with just about every fundamentalist preacher on the planet! are there more liberal preachers, sure – but does this mean they have the "correct" interpretation of being christian? i am not so sure….

    yes the new testament is less fire and brimstone, and yea he expresses certain "golden rule" type ideas – but let's not idealize christ as the gay marriage, pro-choice, pro-immigration, health care and financial regulation obama…

    Christian: adjective
    1.of, pertaining to, or derived from Jesus Christ or His teachings: a follower of Christ.

    Jesus said "If you love me, feed my sheep." John 21:17
    Jesus was instructing His disciples and future followers to take care of the small, the over-looked, the ones that may not be able to speak up for themselves. Now, maybe I have been reading from a different translation than "Pastor" Worley, but as far as I can see, there is no clause, no catch, no loop hole. There are no asterisks stating "Feed my *sheep."
    *so long as those sheep are not gay, lesbian, bi-sexual or transgendered

    " Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit **orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world."James 1:27
    **However, if you discover that those orphans and widows are gay, stop caring for them

    The God I've known is not a God of asterisks, but a God of grace, forgiveness and second chances. I believe that the definition of God should be interchangable with the definition of Love. Unfortunately, that's not always the God that is portrayed by His followers. If a follower of Christ does a Christian make, then this man is by definition, not a Christian. However, if the world still associates "Pastor" Worley with Christianity, then maybe it's time for me to find a new religion.
