Baptist Texas Pastor Says Homosexual Persons Should Be Shot in the Head in Recent Sermon
Well, this is excessive.
I find “Pride Month” to be very annoying (all those rainbow logos on social media for 30 days in a row), but I don’t advocate that people go out and shoot homosexuals in their heads.

A preacher in Watauga, Texas, has drawn national attention for saying that it is God’s will for gay people to be executed by being “shot in the back of the head.” Dillon Awes of Stedfast Baptist Church made the comments June 5 in a sermon titled, “Why We Won’t Shut Up.”
“What does God say is the answer for the sodomite?” asked Awes during his sermon. “What does God say is the answer, is the solution for the homosexual in 2022 here in the New Testament, here in the book of Romans? That they are worthy of death. These people should be put to death! Every single homosexual in our country should be charged with the crime, the abomination of homosexuality that they have. They should be convicted in a lawful trial, they should be sentenced with death, they should be lined up against the wall and shot in the back of the head! That’s what God teaches. That’s what the Bible says. You don’t like it, you don’t like God’s Word.”
Pastor Dillon Awes of Stedfast Baptist Church in Watauga said gay people “are dangerous to society” and “all homosexuals are pedophiles.”

A Texas baptist church — labeled an “anti-LGBT hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center — has caused outrage after a pastor said gay people should be “lined up against the wall and shot in the back of the head.”
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 titled “Why We Won’t Shut Up.”
“I’m angry this morning because our entire country is celebrating the worse sin in the Bible,” Awes said during the sermon referring to Pride Month, which commemorates the LGBTQ+ community every June.
