Pastor Robert Lee’s Ten Commandments Church is known for staunch views. However, when Robert Owens saw a sign at the church reading, "Homsexuality is a Death Worthy Crime," he was shocked.
"This is the first time that I have ever seen anything that actually crossed the line and was inferring death upon a group," Owens told WGXA.
While admitting he has gay friends and family members, Owens said, “If they were causing people to think, 'wow those people really need to die,' that's a terrible thing, that's crossing line."
Lee doesn’t agree, and points to Leviticus 20:13. "Homosexuality is an abomination,” he states, then goes on to say, "The Bible says that homosexuality is a death-worthy crime. Leviticus 20:13 in the King James Bible says, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
"The institution of marriage was instituted by God,” Lee continued. “It should not be changed by people who deserve not to live."
