A Maryland pastor who invoked a Bible quote saying homosexuals are “worthy of death” at a Maryland Marriage Alliance meeting is standing by his comments.
“That’s not my words,” said Reverend Robert Anderson (pictured) of the Colonial Baptist Church in Randallstown, Md., according to NBC Washington 4. “That’s from Romans Chapter 1 written by the Apostle Paul himself.”
Speaking against Question 6 on Maryland’s ballot last week, Anderson said that “’knowing the righteous judgment of God that those who practice such things are deserving of death. Not only do the same’ – but watch this – ‘for those who also approve of those who practice these things.’ If we don’t vote against it, then we are approving these things that are worthy of death.”
Everyone is entitled to their beliefs and opinions, but suggesting that someone is deserving of death because they are gay is extreme. What say you Bossip fam?
