June is celebrated as LGBTQ PRIDE month and a Texas baptist church — labeled an “anti-LGBT hate group” ain’t feeling very festive.
NBC News — “Pastor” Dillon Awes of Stedfast Baptist Church in Watauga, a suburb of Fort Worth, made the comment and other controversial remarks during a Sunday morning sermon.
Awes read several passages from the Bible and condemned homosexuality as a sin. At one point, he told the congregation that gay people “are dangerous to society” and said that “all homosexuals are pedophiles.”
At certain times during the sermon people from the crowd could be heard cheering in agreement. Awes told the room that he thinks the “solution for the homosexual in 2022” is the death penalty.
Many people on social media criticized the pastor with some labeling his remarks as a violent threat to the community.
Damn!!! Whether you are pro or anti LBGTQ, this is very dangerous rhetoric — especially in today’s climate of mass shootings & violence. Is it very Christian-like to condemn & wish harm or death on others?
Let’s push peace people and let God be the judge! None of us has a heaven or hell to place anyone in.
