HURST, TEXAS: Jonathan Shelley, pastor of the Stedfast Baptist Church in Hurst, Texas, reportedly celebrated the deadly accident that took place on June 19 at a Florida Pride parade. A driver reportedly unintentionally crashed into a Pride parade happening at the Stonewall Pride Parade in Wilton Manors, Florida, about which the Fort Lauderdale mayor said that it was a “terrorist attack against the LGBT community”. The tragedy had taken the life of a person while injuring two others. “I think only one person died. So hopefully we can hope for more in the future,” Jonathan Shelley told congregants.

He continued mentioning the “sinful habits” of LGBTQ+ people and said, “it is going beyond just saying you do all this wicked stuff. It’s saying you enjoy it. You enjoy murder. You enjoy malignity. You enjoy hating God.” Shelley stated, “look, there’s only one group that enjoys that: It’s the Pride parades going up and down the street. And, you know, it’s great when trucks accidentally go through those, you know, parades. I think only one person died. So hopefully we can hope for more in the future. You say, ‘Well, that’s mean.’ Yeah, but the Bible says that they’re worthy of death!”

The pastor added: “I hope they all die! And you say, ‘Well, I don’t think that’s what you really mean.’ That’s exactly what I mean. I really mean it!”

The video of Shelley’s hateful preaching soon went viral with people slamming him. A Twitter user Hemant Mehta with username @hemantmehta had shared, “Yesterday, a Christian hate-preacher from Texas celebrated a gay man's death at a Pride parade. "It's great when trucks accidentally go through those... parades... We can hope for more in the future... I think it's great! I hope they all die!" (Warning: The language gets worse).” Another user commented, “This man's manner is of the spirit of satan. ‘Lord, do you want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them,’ But Jesus turned and rebuked them and said, ‘You do not know what manner of spirit you are of.’ Luke 9:54-55.” The third said, “I really wish people would stop saying you get your morals from religion! This just shows you the hate that can come from the people who are in charge of it! Disgusting.”



 



 



 

A person tweeted, “One cannot read of the healing and ministry of Christ and truly think this is consistent with it. No one says all who confess Christianity will show Christian morals - we are told to beware false preachers and that  will know them by their fruit.” The second one wrote, “It makes me wonder how long it will be before he gets caught soliciting sex with a man or boy - because it's always *those guys*.” “Your Savior Jesus has a special hell for you. His message to man is to love. No exceptions. You hope for death to those you are supposed to pray for. I suggest you pray for your OWN soul though by your own words you have proven to God that it's too late for you and your followers,” a tweet added.
