Much to North Carolina's shame, another NC pastor has shown his ass. Earlier this month, Sean Harris, the pastor of Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville, gained controversy after telling parents they should punch gay-appearing children.
And now comes Pastor Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church — located at 3283 Providence Mill Rd, Maiden, NC 28650. He is seen here from a service posted to the church's website dated May 13, 2012 calling for the concentration and ultimate death of "queers and homosexuals."
But there's been mobilization for a response. People are coming together to donate to LGBT groups…. in Pator Worley's name:
So, in addition to sending in a donation to your favorite LGBT advocacy group in his honor, I'm asking you to do one more thing: download the postcard you find at the end of this post and fill it out. It is addressed to Pastor Worley and says, "A donation has been made to __________ in your name. Thank you for helping advance the fight for equal rights for our LGBT brothers and sisters." Just fill in the blank and mail it to the right Reverend. In a few days, he'll also start receiving all the wonderful educational material from each organization to whom he has “donated.”
When you make a donation in his name be sure to include the address of his church:
Providence Road Baptist Church
Attn: Pastor Worley
3283 Providence Mill Rd.
Maiden, NC 28650
AND (thanks to some blog readers) here's his email include in the donation information:firstname.lastname@example.org.
AND (again thanks to readers) here's his phone number if you need it to fill out your application/donation: (828) 428-2518. BUT seriously, please only use it for filling out forms. Do not call him.
And, for your convenience, my friends on Facebook have helped assemble this list of worthy organizations. Whether it is $5 or $500, you donation can make a difference.
And don't forget to send Pastor Worley this note to let him know about your donation!
