Disgraced Pastor Donnie Romero is apologizing for cheating on his wife with prostitutes, but wants people to know that he still hates the gays.
Pastor Romero, of Fort Worth-based Stedfast Baptist Church, resigned from his position at the church earlier this month after admitting to “sins,” including hiring prostitutes, gambling, drinking, and smoking marijuana.
In a video posted on YouTube Romero issued an apology for his “sins.” The following is a brief excerpt:
I went to Jacksonville, and I went to a casino, and I was drinking, and there were girls there that were prostitutes, and I committed adultery on my wife multiple times. I drank and gambled multiple times. And I even smoked weed. I did sins that — I went back to sins that I have committed before in the past, and it even caused me to commit sins that I had never done before.
You know, I really shattered our life, my wife’s life, my kids. We plan on finding an old IFB-type church that we can go to and serve the Lord. You know, I haven’t changed anything I believe. I still believe exactly the same. You know, I just went into sin, and I committed horrible, grievous sins. There’s no doubt about that.
Watch the entire apology below:
While Romero definitely owes his wife an apology for his infidelity, it is important to note that in the video Romero says he hasn’t changed his mind about anything he believes, and he does not apologize for being an anti-gay bigot.
And Romero is a huge anti-gay bigot. After the mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando that left 49 dead and scores more wounded at the gay nightclub in Florida, Pastor Romero prayed for God to “finish the job” and kill the survivors of the Orlando massacre.Declaring that he was happy about the mass shooting, Romero told his congregation at Stedfast Baptist Church:
These 50 sodomites are all perverts and pedophiles, and they are the scum of the earth, and the earth is a little bit better place now.
And I’ll take it a step further, because I heard on the news today, that there are still several dozen of these queers in ICU and intensive care. And I will pray to God like I did this morning, and I will do it tonight, I’ll pray that God will finish the job that that man started, and he will end their life, and by tomorrow morning they will all be burning in hell, just like the rest of them…
In short, Pastor Romero prays for the death of gays, and the good Christians at Stedfast Baptist Church support him. But when he pays for sex, he is forced to resign.
Family values. Christian family values.
Bottom line: Disgraced Pastor Donnie Romero is apologizing for cheating on his wife with prostitutes, but wants people to know that he still hates the gays.
