Christian pastor calls for every gay person to be lined up & “shot in the back of the head”


Pastor Dillon Awes

Pastor Dillon Awes called for America to implement “the solution for the homosexual,” which is mass death.

Pastor Dillon Awes of the Stedfast Baptist Church in Hurst, Texas had a very specific call for violence against LGBTQ people in sermon from this weekend.

Entitled “Why We Won’t Shut Up,” his sermon was about “the solution for the homosexual,” which he said is murder.

“What does God say is the answer, is the solution, for the homosexual in 2022, here in the New Testament, here in the Book of Romans?” Awes asked. “That they are worthy of death! These people should be put to death!”

“Every single homosexual in our country should be charged with the crime, the abomination of homosexuality, that they have,” he continued. “They should be convicted in a lawful trial. They should be sentenced with death.”

“They should be lined up against the wall and shot in the back of the head! That’s what God teaches. That’s what the Bible says. You don’t like it? You don’t like God’s Word, because that is what God says.”

Stedfast is one of the most hateful churches in the country, and its pastors have repeatedly called for death to LGBTQ people.


“According to God we should hate Pride, not celebrate it,” Pastor Jonathan Shelley said several weeks ago at an Arlington, Texas city council meeting. “God has already ruled that murder, adultery, witchcraft, rape, bestiality, and homosexuality are crimes worthy of capital punishment.”

Shelley made headlines last year when he said that he was happy that a gay person was killed at a Pride event.

“The Bible says that they’re worthy of death!” he said at the time. “They say, ‘Are you sad when f**s die?’ No. I think it’s great! I hope they all die! I would love it if every f*g would die right now.”


The Southern Poverty Law Center considers Stedfast Baptist Church to be a hate group.

    1. Hello Nan. The bible said shot them in the back of the head? Oh what a loving god. I shudder to think of any kid living with these kinds of people who gets found out as gay, lesbian, or trans. What would these people do to their own children? What kind of horrible camp to change them to “normal” will they send them to? Will they mistreat them at home? Scary to be so intolerant. But Nan this guy has hate, pure hate in him for gay people. Why? What causes that kind of pure hate? It cannot what he thinks the bible says, it has to be more than that to hate so hard. Hugs


      1. I agree, it’s difficult to understand that a human being could be so full of hate, but consider this. When only one side of an issue is presented and then reinforced again and again and again, coming at it from multiple angles, and then having those around you strengthen and confirm it … how (or why) would anyone think otherwise and lose their credibility? THIS is what takes place in religion … and, unfortunately, politics as well.

  1. Scottie, this will cause hate crimes. If someone acts on this minister’s recommendation, he needs to be arrested. Just because someone declares they are pious does not make it so. It also means they are not devoid of being full of BS. This is the worst of religion and not very Golden Rule like. Keith

    1. Hello Keith. Yes it will, and in some cases has already done so. But as I asked Nan what will these kinds of people do to their children if they find out their gay? Remember in red states these don’t say gay bills require teachers to notify the parents if a child comes out or is asking to use different pronouns. Imagine being a teenager who is out at school and maybe even has a special someone of the same gender with parents like this preacher. What will happen to this kid when they get home? What causes so much hate? Does misreading the bible really do it? I cannot imagine hating strangers who are not hurting / harming you like this guy hates gays. Hugs
