Texas pastor Donnie Romero of the Stedford Baptist Church delivered a sermon last week in which he said he agreed that the Orlando club attack victims were perverts who deserved death.
The Fort Worth pastor said, “These 50 sodomites are all perverts and pedophiles and they are the scum of the Earth and the Earth is a little bit better place now.” he said according to NYdailyNews.
He later said that those not slaughtered in Omar Mateen’s attack should be killed.
“There are several dozen of these queers in an ICU in intensive care … I will pray to God like I did this morning and I will do it tonight that God will finish the job,” the 33-year-old said.
His comments come after a California pastor Roger Jimenez was widely criticized for a sermon in the hours after the attack at Pulse night club last Sunday that killed 49 people, in which he wished death on the LGBT community.
