Sacramento Pastor Roger Jimenez makes disgusting ‘pedophile’ comments about gay club shooting

Only a few short hours after 49 people were gunned down at a gay club in Orlando, Sacramento, California Pastor Roger Jimenez delivered a shocking and disgusting sermon from the pulpit.

“Hey, are you sad that 50 pedophiles were killed today? No … I think that’s great. I think that helps society.  I think Orlando, Florida’s a little safer tonight,” he said to the congregation in front of him, KTLA sister station KTXL reported.

Authorities clarified that 49 people were killed by Muslim terrorist Omar Mateen, who was later killed in a gun battle with police.

“It is unnatural for a man to be attracted to another man,” he said as he preached for more than an hour.

“The tragedy is that more of them didn’t die,” he said.

“If we lived in a righteous government, they should round them all up and put them up against a firing wall, and blow their brains out,” Jimenez said in the sermon.
In previous sermons, Jimenez has called for instituting the death penalty for homosexuality.

“We as the gay community support you should be able to worship as you see fit, but it’s when you use the pulpit to incite violence or demean or discredit another class of people, just utter disgust,” said Donald Bentz, executive director of Sacramento’s LGBTQ Community Center.

Throughout the sermon, Jimenez cited passages in the Bible from Judges 19:22, Genesis 4:1 and Romans 1:27 to back up his points.

Bentz countered that with a critique of the translation process.

“Most of those texts were originally written into Hebrew, translated into Greek, translated into Latin, translated into old English, new English and then back to English and every author that did the translations subjected them to the social mores of their time,” he said.
