“Religious extremist” Jonathan Shelly of Stedfast church calls Pride March an abomination and says gay people should be sentenced to death
Pastor Jonathan Shelley of Stedfast Baptist Church in Texas addressed the City Council in Arkansas in 2022. He was horrified and ashamed that the city acknowledged PRIDE Month, pushed by the militant LGBTQ.
He cited civil laws prohibiting same-sex activities and statistics showing their harmful effects on society. He also explained why the Satanic PRIDE March should not be supported by a nation whose state constitution acknowledges God as its sovereign.
Sentenced to death because that is what God said
In a now-deleted sermon, Shelly said, “Every single homosexual in our country should be charged with the crime, the abomination of homosexuality, that they have; they should be convicted in a lawful trial, sentenced with death.”
“They should be lined up against the wall and shot in the back of the head! Because that is what God said,” the extremist Christian pastor justified. But then, the “white pastor” has not been outspoken with LGBTQIA activists who persecute Christians.
What the Bible says about homosexuality
The Christian Bible is clear about homosexual behaviors. It is a sin and an abomination. However, the Bible also says that anyone who repents from their sinful ways and comes to Jesus will be saved from the coming wrath of God.
