I will say I think you, like most Christians, are more ethical than the bible Christians say they follow. As far as I can see by the bible’s standards even Worley is being a bit “liberal.” After all, it pretty unequivocally says we should skip the camps and kill them. (Lev. 20:13)

Of course both of us were raised in a society that values personal choice and free choice and prefer a society where people can disagree without locking them up or killing them for just existing. Unfortunately Worley doesn’t seem to think such values are laudable.

Besides, how is this a real sermon?

But fault can be found on all sides on this – sad – http://campaign2012.washingtonexaminer.com/blogs/beltway-confidential/holder-brief-black-pastors-campaign-2012/567501
