This is the second installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section. Let’s have some fun!
Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a clip taken from a sermon preached by Charles Worley, pastor of Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, North Carolina. Providence Road Baptist is a “Fundamental, Independent Missionary Baptist church that believes in the power of the Gospel to save and secure the sinner.”
This guy is a complete douche-nozzle.
Is the word douche-nozzle allowed in this group? If douche-nozzle isn’t allowed, I will refrain from using the words douche-nozzle together in a sentence ever again. All you have to tell me is that “douche-nozzle” is not allowed in referring to anyone like this douche-nozzle Charles Worley.
Is anyone collecting all these diatribes ?? Guys like this are simply giving us the weaponry to cut off their recruitment drive. Like cancer, you don’t have to directly destroy it. You identify all its traits and then expose it to the immune system [young people of this nation]. That system should wash them away.
YouTube has lots of wacky video of delusional nut-job preachers… I can only take small doses before slipping into despair.
I haven’t looked at the video yet, but I did enter several other websites on this topic. His words are inflammatory and full of hated against same-sex oriented persons. If it is true what I read on one news site that he got an standing ovation from his congregation, then I understand why former Fundamentalists want to have nothing to do with this kind of hatred and bigotry.
He is doing a great job of alerting thoughtful people that are caught up in such forms of Evangelicalism of discarding this kind of shameful behaviour. Why do so many Fundamentalist pastors ignore passages in their bibles that tell them to love their enemies, but latch onto passages of hate and violence? Why follow a god of violence and vengeance when they could focus on treating others with dignity and respect?
It is disturbing that he got a standing ovation from the 100 or so attendees. He should have been dismissed for preaching hatred and stirring up governments to get rid of same -sex oriented persons. His suggested actions were never be successful because there there will always be about 5% of persons who are born gay.
The beginning of the last sentence should read: “His suggested actions will never be successful ….”
