A Georgia church came under fire following the mass shooting of LGBT people at an Orlando night club after the pastor refused to take down a sign claiming that “Satan made gays and transgender.”
WXIA reported over the weekend that residents of Buford were concerned that The Back to the Bible Holiness Church was dividing the community with its sign, which reads “God created man and woman. Satan made gays and transgender.”
Pastor Bobby Wright explained to WXIA that he was not concerned about the sign stirring up hatred following the Orlando shootings.
“I haven’t cursed anyone. I haven’t called anyone a name,” Wright told the station. “I’m a voice for the community.”
He also insisted that LGBT people would be welcomed at his church.
“The church is open for service,” he said. “They’re invited in.”
However, Buford resident Prestee Earls said that she did not support the sign’s message.
“I think [LGBT people] would feel bad,” she said. “If I walked by and saw it, I would feel bad for them.”

Matt Gaetz gets laughed at after his attempt to derail Mueller hearing hilariously backfires
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) tried to turn the latest hearing on special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election into a hearing on border security -- and then got hilariously shut down by one of the panelists.
During his allotted time, Gaetz changed the subject away entirely from the Mueller report and decided to grill one of the witnesses for her views on border security.
In particular, Gaetz asked Carrie Cordero, a Robert M. Gates senior fellow and general counsel at the Center for New American Security, about her work writing about the security problems posed by Mexican drug cartels.
Lindsey Graham shoves Trump toward war: ‘Anyone would believe we’re one step closer’
President Donald Trump seemed to try and deescalate the situation between Iran and the U.S. in wake of the former shooting down an American drone. But Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) seems to be shoving the president toward war.
"I think anybody would believe that we’re one step closer" [to war], Graham told the press in the hallways of Congress Thursday. "They shot down an American asset, well within international waters -- trying to assess the situation. What are you supposed to do?"
Fireworks erupt at latest Mueller hearing as chairman Jerry Nadler schools GOP’s Jim Jordan
A feisty Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) schooled Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for blatantly misstating facts about the investigation into potential coordination between the Trump campaign and the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election.
After Jordan went on a lengthy diatribe against the FBI for supposedly relying on the Steele dossier to launch an investigation against the Trump campaign, Nadler jumped in to formally correct the record.
"It is well established that the investigation was not predicated on the Steele dossier, but rather on the observation of..." Nadler began.
