Pastor Sam Morris told his Old Paths Baptist Church congregation on Sunday that a shooting massacre in Connecticut was the result of schools teaching kids “how to be homo.”

Gunman Adam Lanza, 20, on Friday forced his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut and killed 26 people, including 20 children, before taking his own life.

Morris told his Fayetteville, Tennessee flock: “Why do you still send your kids to the governmental schools? What's behind this shooting that we saw on Dec. 14 in Newtown, Connecticut and the other ones like it? What's going on. Well, number one, deception. … I got news for you, when you kicked God out of schools, you're going to be judged for that.”

“When I got in high school, man, I started learning all this kingdom, phylum stuff, all this junk about evolution. And I want to tell you what evolution teaches, here's the bottom line, that you're an animal. That's what it teaches. So, you're an animal, you can act like an animal. Amen.”

“So, here you are, you're an animal and you're a god! So, what are we going to teach you about in school? Well, we can teach you about sex, we can teach you how to rebel to you parents, we can teach you how to be a homo! But we're definitely not going to teach you about the word of God! Amen.”

Progressive radio host David Pakman commented: “Let me see if I'm following this. God hates gay people so much that in spite of never mentioning homosexuality in the Ten Commandments, he would have a shooter mow down a bunch of innocent kids just to show how upset he was that someone in a different school, somewhere else in the country is trying to teach children to be respectful to homosexuality and the children of homosexuals as they should be to everybody else. … [Morris] is talking about a very evil god. … The Devil seems to be on vacation.” (The video is embedded on this page.
