Scenes from Today’s Protest Outside Christian Hate Pastor Roger Jimenez’s Verity Baptist Church

Last week, Pastor Roger Jimenez of Verity Baptist Church in Sacramento, California made news after saying in a sermon that he was sad that the Orlando nightclub shooter didn’t “finish the job,” that the real tragedy was that “more of them didn’t die,” and that the government should really be executing gay people via firing squad.

Earlier today, hundreds of people stood outside his church to protest the hate. Here are glimpses of that protest:

As for the sermon itself, Jimenez reiterated to his congregation (and select media) that he’s not advocating people commit these violent acts themselves. He simply longs for the day when a righteous government will execute homosexuals with a firing squad. Because that’s what Jesus wanted.

It was a wonderful peaceful protest that showed how people who care about LGBT individuals will always outnumber the haters from any religion. Just as with the angels who opposed Westboro Baptist Church in Florida, these protesters deserve our appreciation.
