A Maryland pastor who suggested supporters of same-sex marriage deserve to die refuses to back down from his vehemently anti-gay statements.
Rev. Robert Anderson, of Colonial Baptist Church in Randallstown, Md., made the remark at a town hall meeting last week about the upcoming vote on Question 6, the referendum challenging the state’s legalization of same-sex marriage.
“Those who practice such things are worthy of death,” Anderson said. “If we don’t vote against it, then we are approving these things that are worthy of death.” Anderson says he was simply quoting scripture.
“That’s not my words,” he told NBC Washington. “That’s from Romans Chapter 1 written by the Apostle Paul himself.”
