The Response To Pastor Worley

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.

But he backtracked.

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:

Not only will it be a wonderful opposing response to Pastor Worley, but it does several other wickedly beautiful things.One, it helps fund organizations who are actively working against this kind of exclusion and bullying. Two, it puts Pastor Worley on their mailing lists!!! And, three, it can really show Pastor Worley and others what creative, non-violent resistance looks like – and that's biblical.

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
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!
