Pastor Dillon Awes said that the “solution” to gay people is presented in the Bible: “They should be lined up against the wall and shot in the back of the head.”
Why, yes, he is a Baptist. How could you tell?
In a Sunday sermon titled “Why We Won’t Shut Up,” Awes of Stedfast Baptist Church said that “every single” gay person in America should be executed by the government.
“What does God say is the answer, is the solution, for the homosexual in 2022, here in the New Testament, here in the Book of Romans?” Awes asked. “That they are worthy of death! These people should be put to death!”
“Every single homosexual in our country should be charged with the crime, the abomination of homosexuality, that they have,” he continued. “They should be convicted in a lawful trial. They should be sentenced with death.”

Save that IRS link, you know, just for future reference.
