Rachel Maddow: Orlando: Christian Leaders say hateful things about Those Killed

During her show on MSNBC, Maddow covered three conservative religious leaders who actually had such a lakc of compassion and humanity that they cheered the mass shooting at the gay night club and two called for executing all gays in America.
“Are you sad that 50 pedophiles were killed today?” Sacramento preacher Roger Jimenez asked himself in front of his congregation at the Verity Baptist Church. “Um no, I think that’s great! I think that helps society. I think Orlando, Florida is a little safer tonight.”
And then he hoped the killing would continue via the government.
“I wish the government would round them all up, put them up against a wall, put a firing squad in front of them and blow their brains out.”
Pastor Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church in Arizona echoed the same call.
“The good news is that there’s 50 less pedophiles in this world, because, you know, these homosexuals are a bunch of disgusting perverts and pedophiles,” Anderson said. “That’s who was a victim here, are a bunch of, just, disgusting homosexuals at a gay bar, okay?”
“But these people all should have been killed, anyway, but they should have been killed through the proper channels, as in they should have been executed by a righteous government that would have tried them, convicted them, and saw them executed. Because, in Leviticus 20:13, God’s perfect law, he put the death penalty on murder, and he also put the death penalty on homosexuality. That’s what the Bible says, plain and simple.”
Conservative conman Pat Robertson appeared to be trying to pit gay people against Muslims and vice versa and said the right-wing should just sit on the “sidelines and let them kill themselves.”
Needless to say, Rachel Maddow found these reactions “disgusting” and so should every American.
