    "I figured a way out, a way to get rid of all the lesbians and queers, but I couldn't get it past the Congress. Build a great big, large fence – 50 or a 100 miles long – and put all the lesbians in there. Fly over and drop some food. Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals, and have that fence electrified so they can't get out. Feed them. And you know in a few years, they'll die out. You know why? They can't reproduce." – Pastor Charles L. Worley, speaking May 13 at his church in Maiden, N.C. Video of the pastor’s words was posted to YouTube and went viral Tuesday.
