Shame Hateful Pastor Who Applauded Orlando Terrorist Attack

Roger-Jimenez

Target: Pastor Roger Jimenez, Verity Baptist Church

Goal: Shame on you for applauding the murders at a gay nightclub in Orlando and wishing that more people died.

Just a few hours after dozens of innocent victims were shot at a nightclub in Orlando, Florida, a local pastor in Sacramento, CA delivered a sermon heaping praise on the shooter for his evil actions. Pastor Roger Jimenez delivered a sermon in which he applauded the horrific shooting, claiming that the murder of homosexuals would make society safer.

“Are you sad that 50 pedophiles were killed today? No … I think that’s great. I think that helps society,” said Jimenez in his remarks, making a shocking and blatant error by mistakenly equating gay people with pedophiles. Later in his sermon he added, “the tragedy is that more of them didn’t die.”

Regardless of sexual orientation, the victims of the Orlando shooting were human beings who deserve love and respect. For a “man of God” to deem them as pedophiles and cheer their murder while the paramedics were still responding to the scene is ignorant, inhumane and hateful. Sign the petition below to shame this offensive man.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Jimenez,

I am writing to express my shock and disgust at your recent sermon, during which you applauded the murder of 49 people because they were homosexuals. Your decision to cheer the senseless killing of dozens of people is cruel, vile, and offensive.

The LGBTQ population has long been subject to violence and persecution, in great part because of attitudes like yours. You hold the same belief system as the disgusting terrorist who fired the bullets. Shame on you for your insensitive, offensive and thoroughly ignorant comments.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. This makes me discussed. This is no man of the Cloth. He is a man who speaks evil. Love will overcome & hopefully he will be relieved of his Parish. Hopefully the following did not take this sermon to heart.

  2. Wouldn’t want to be in his shoes at the Pearly Gates!

  3. Says far more about you and the church you preach for than it does about the people you hate.

    “Pastor” Jimenez – EVERY ONE OF THESE PREVIOUS “REPLY/COMMENTS” CONTAINS ENLIGHTENMENT WHICH YOU WILL BE WISE TO READ, AND TO SUBVERT YOUR ANGRY UNEDUCATED EGO TO SERIOUSLY PONDER AND TO LEARN FROM! You are so far off the charts of the Truth, and YOU claim to be a “Pastor for GOD”????? DO YOU NOT HEAR YOUR ANGRY, FEARFUL SELF SPEWING HATE THROUGH THE BLATENT SMEAR OF UNENLIGHTED AND ERRONEOUS COMCEPTS??? {“Gay” DOES NOT EQUAL “Pedophile”! Repeat: “Gay” DOES NOT EQUAL “Pedophile”!} AND A “PASTOR FOR GOD” SHOULD NOT BE WISHING THAT THERE WERE MORE INNOCENT VICTIMS!
    ONE COMMENT ENCOURAGED YOUR CONGREGATION TO LEAVE YOUR CHIRCH – YES: TURN AND RUN, PEOPLE – THIS IS NOT A MAN REPRESENTING A LOVING GOD – THIS IS AN UNENLIGHTENED ANGRY FOOL
    >> USING HIS POSITION IN YOUR CHURCH <<
    TO RANT HIS OWN FEAR, ANGER AND MISCONCEPTIONS, AND UNTRUTHS!
    HIS WORDS ARE THE "ASSAULT RIFLE"!!!! RUN! (AND EDUCATE YOUR OWN SELVES IN REALITY AND IN THE LOVE OF GOD, PLEASE! BLESS YOU ALL – GOD BE WITH YOU IN YOUR OWN SEARCH FOR TRUTH – NOT IN BLINDLY ABSORBING AND SUPPORTING THIS EVIL HE SPEWS.) {And NO, I am not "gay" – I HAPPEN to have been born heterosexual; although, Praise Be To God: I LISTEN TO HIM: WITH THE KINDNESS AND COMPASSION OF THE WILLING-TO-LEARN-ENLIGHTENMENT OF THE "HEART" HE PLACED IN US ALL. GODSPEED.?}

  5. HE IS NOT HUMAN HE IS A DISGRACE TO THE CHURCH

  6. You don’t have to be Straight or Gay to feel the pain of this horror.
    “Pastor” Jimenez does not belong preaching – he belongs in a mental hospital. HE is depraved.

  7. This thing is a disgrace to the human race, it is human is it?

  8. This disgusting, hateful person, in an influential position, is condoning violence, spreading hate and accusing innocent people (who he doesn’t know) of the most vilest crime (pedophilia).
    He needs to be relieved of his position IMMEDIATELY!!

  9. God tells us in Matthew chapter 7 that we should not judge our fellow man lest be judged by the same standards. God loves everyone. It is up to God to judge our actions. We don’t have to like how someone chooses to lead their life but it’s their life to lead and God will judge them in the end. It is not for you or anyone else to wish harm on another. If you were any kind of minister uyou would know that. My prayers for you and your followers.

    Good thing I don’t go to church…I’d put this douche ball’s head to sleep if I ever heard this with my own ears. Not like it would do any good, just look at the guy,…looks like he was fed a steady diet of paint chips, while constantly being dropped on his head…

  11. Karen Remnant says:

    Stick this arsehole in a room with the friends and families of the victims.

  12. Unfortunately, he is not the only one. Which says very little about religions, at least dominant religions, that are usually patriarchal and classist.

  14. This is a pastor? A pastor from hell more like it. The Baptist church ought to throw him out immediately.

  15. Pastor Roger Jimenez, Verity Baptist Church you evil bastard. You must be sacked from your position as a Preacher of the Baptist Church. You are an evil and vile preacher from HELL.
    Go join your Preachers from hell where you belong.

  16. Margaret Melnick says:

    This idiot is no man of God. Just because they are gay does not mean they are Pedophiles. Pedophiles are sick sick people who are a threat to children. Gay people are not any more of a threat than a heterosexual. This is no man of God and should be removed from his pastor position and charged with promoting hate crimes.

  17. This is vile and worse than disgusting!
    Shaming is not enough. The church needs to permanently ban Roger Jimenez as a false teacher and follower of Satan.

    As a Christian I am deeply offended by this act of verbal terrorism.

  18. Alexander Yeung says:

    He no Pastor. He just a heartless, cruel man with no pity or sympathy. He don’t deserve to be welcome in the Christian church.

  19. Lynn Juozilaitis says:

    Pure evil! You should be ashamed but I’m sure you’re not! Watch out preacher! Karma is a BITCH!
