Texas pastor sparks outrage by saying gay people should be “lined up and shot in the back of the head”
A Texas Baptist Church Pastor has caused outrage after he said gay people should be “lined up and shot in the back of the head.”
Dillon Awes from Stedfast Baptist Church in Watauga, made the comment and other controversial remarks during a Sunday morning sermon.
Within the service Awes said: “I’m angry this morning because our entire country is celebrating the worse sin in the Bible.”
Awes was referring to Pride Month, which commemorates the LGBTQ+ community every June.
Awes read several passages from the Bible and condemned homosexuality as a sin.
Awes went onto to say in his service: "You know a lot of pastors have this stupid idea where it’s just like, 'oh you know God loves everyone.
“And God hates the sin but loves the sinner.' But people have taken this to such an extreme where they’re saying celebrate the sin, not just tolerate it, celebrate it," he continued.
"Let me show what the Bible says about these people."
Many people on social media criticised the pastor with some labelling his remarks as a threat to their community.
