A lesbian mother who attended about 20 sermons of North Carolina pastor Charles Worley said Tuesday she was not surprised that the pastor recently told his congregation that LGBT individuals should be detained in camps until they’re all dead.

“I was not surprised,” she told talk show host David Pakman. “I am saddened, but not surprised.”

The woman, who did not wish to be identified, said that Worley had commonly expressed anti-homosexual sentiments and that the congregation was generally supportive of his comments.

During a sermon on May 13, Worley berated President Barack Obama for claiming that same sex couples should be allowed to marry.

“The Bible is against it, God is against it, I’m against it and if you’ve got any sense you’re against it,” he said. “I figured a way out to get rid of all the lesbians and queers. But it isn’t going to pass in Congress. Build a great, big, large fence — 150 or 100 mile long — put all the lesbians in there. Fly over and drop some food. Do the same thing for the queers and the homosexuals, and have that fence electrified so they can’t get out, feed em, and you know what, in a few years, they’ll die out. You know why? They can’t reproduce!”

Video of his comments were uploaded to YouTube on Monday by Catawba Valley Citizens Against Hate. The group plans to peacefully protest outside the Providence Road Baptist Church on Sunday, May 27.
