Another Baptist Preacher Praises Orlando Gay Nightclub Attack

What is it about American Baptists? A SECOND Baptist minister is filmed praising and rejoicing in the Orlando killings. 

CBS reports

A Sacramento Baptist preacher’s sermon praising an attack on an Orlando nightclub that killed 50 people has the local LGBT community outraged.

Recordings of the sermon by Pastor Roger Jimenez surfaced under the Verity Baptist Church’s YouTube account.

“Are you sad that 50 pedophiles were killed today?” he said in the sermon. “Um no, I think that’s great! I think that helps society. I think Orlando, Florida is a little safer tonight.”

The remarks were delivered on Sunday morning, hours after the attack happened.

“We don’t need to do anything to help. As far as I’m concerned, Orlando is a little bit safer tonight,” he said.

The original video of the sermon was taken down late Monday night by Youtube for violating the service’s policy on hate speech.

  1. Dr. White did another excellent show, showing the difference between different kinds of Baptists and different kinds of Pentecostals and different kinds of Muslims and he was even stronger than the clip you and Yahya Snow liked and clearly said not all Muslims are the same and many Muslims are shocked and horrified by terrorism and what the guy in Orlando did and that in order for us to be consistent, we have to let Muslims have the right to differentiate themselves from the terrorist Muslims like ISIS/ISIL / Da’esh داعش and Al Qaeda القاعده .

    He rebuked Christians for lumping all Muslims into the ISIS and other terrorists groups.


    • Ken, I will try to listen to it sped up on my phone tomorrow whilst exercising or earlier. May even come back and give you my opinion on it. Thanks for sharing.

      However, I’d really like to see him call out folk who try to link Islam to every and any atack a Muslim is behind. Those folk are disingenuous. There are a number of them in the right-wing Christian camp. They really need to be told.

  2. I agree with Dr. White on that; excellent.


  3. He’s from a minority background too, an ethnic minority.which is maligned by dangerous propaganda by folk like Trump. You’d think he would have learnt a lesson here.

    I saw the a from 2001-2014, 268 LGBT persons have been murdered. Americans need to stomp down on this type of rhetoric that conflates homosexuals and paedophiles.It;s dangerous.
