While the whole world is mourning the recent killings of dozens of people at Orlando gay nightclub Pulse, a hate-filled California pastor is celebrating the tragedy and advising people not to mourn.
Just hours after 29-year-old Omar Mateen killed 49 people and wounded another 53 early Sunday morning; Pastor Roger Jimenez told people at his Sacramento church that he was upset because the shooter couldn’t kill more. He called people at the gay nightclub “predators.”
Addressing a gathering at the church, Pastor Jimenez said, “The tragedy is that more of them didn’t die. I’m kind of upset he didn’t finish the job — because these people are predators. Are you sad that 50 pedophiles were killed today? Um, no. I think that’s great.”
Stressing that it is unnatural for a man to be attracted to another man and for a woman to be attracted by another woman, the pastor added that the killings made the Orlando society a little safer.
From the pulpit at Verity Baptist Church, Pastor Jimenez reiterated his denunciation of homosexuality, and called the government to execute/put to death of all gay people. He advised people not mourn the killings, saying they got what they deserved.
