A Baptist minister in Texas who came to national attention in 2016 when he praised the gunman who killed 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla., resigned from his ministry last week after allegedly using drugs, gambling and paying for sex with prostitutes.
Donnie Romero, who founded the Stedfast Baptist Church in Fort Worth in 2014, told congregants at a church meeting on Jan. 2 that he had not “been ruling my house well.”
“I have been a terrible husband and father,” Mr. Romero said, according to video of the meeting that was posted to the church’s official YouTube channel. “This is the best decision — for my family and my church — to make.”
Mr. Romero did not elaborate on his alleged impropriety at that meeting, which was largely run by another pastor, Steven L. Anderson. Mr. Anderson told congregants that “the lord says” Mr. Romero was “disqualified” to lead them.
Later, in a video he posted to YouTube, Mr. Anderson expanded on what he called the pastor’s “major sins.”

I dont like organized religion.
It makes bad people very loud and too influential.

All the baptists are just happy it didn't involve any gay escorts with stories of football team fantasies.

Yep, you got a hard road ahead buddy. But hey, no Jesus Out The Gay camp for you! That's like 3 weeks of your life back.

His argument with respect to the Orlando shooting was that Leviticus says a man lying with another many will surely be put to death. Well, he just missed it himself. Fortunately for him, the Bible only imposes capital punishment for sleeping with another man's wife. A prostitute wouldn't qualify unless she happens to be married. Phew.

Probably male prostitutes.

The only thing shocking about this story would be if the prostitute is an adult female.

Some more Religous batshit...

Evangelicals want the federal anti-lynching bill to be changed to exclude gay people from its protections.

James Dobson, Founder of Focus on the Family asks christians to fast for Trump

Isn't James Dobson the guy who said that men should shower with their sons to make sure they don't "turn gay"?

Lol..If they are "fasting" for Trump. They will end up starving to death

So the guy resigned for the only three morally defensible things he was ever in the news for.

Cool.
