Pastor Known For Condemning Homosexuality Resigns Over His Own Eye-Rolling Scandal 😐

Pastor Donnie Romero first graced headlines after the horrific and heartbreaking shooting at the Orlando nightclub, Pulse, in 2016. Now he is back in the spotlight for a very different reason.

After the Pulse shooting, Romero told his Fort Worth, Texas congregation, Stedfast Baptist Church, that all gay people are pedophiles.

He went on to tell congregants that he was praying that the injured victims from the shooting would die.

His reason for such an obscene statement?

β€œSo that they don’t get any more opportunity to go out and hurt little children.”

He went even further, saying:

β€œI’ll pray to God that God will finish the job that that man [Omar Mateen] started.”

In a recent turn of events, it has been discovered that Pastor Romero has resigned from his position at Stedfast Baptist Church.

Romero resigned in front of his congregation on January 2, stating:

β€œI have not been ruling my house well. I’ve beenΒ a terrible husband and father.”

He went on to say that his wife and seven children are not to blame:

β€œI’m the one at fault in this situation. I love Stedfast Baptist Church. I love my family. This is the best decision for my family and this church to make.”

The now-former pastor’s resignation did not go into further detail about why he was stepping down.

However, Pastor Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church was there for Romero’s resignation.

Pastor Anderson later explained Romero’s decision in a YouTube video.

Anderson described Romero’s sins as “grievous.”

He went on to tell viewers:

β€œThe major sin involved was being with prostitutes, and then there were also marijuana and gambling.”

The hypocrisy in this situation is remarkable.

Most people,Β however, don’t seem terribly surprised.

Neither Romero nor Anderson has commented on the situation, but Romero’s replacement, Jonathan Shelley, did say that the gender of the prostitutes is unknown.
