Pastor Charles Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, North Carolina told his congregation this Sunday that he wants to set up gay concentration camps for “lesbians and queers” to let them die out, and the backlash has been strong. Thanks to complaints from many individuals, Pastor Worley no longer has a website, because the company that produced and hosted it took it down after receiving numerous complaints. Both Anderson Cooper and Martin Bashir took on Worley on their respective shows yesterday, highlighting not only how wrong his interpretation of scripture was, but how dangerous his rhetoric was.
