Anti-LGBTQ pastor Donnie Romero has resigned from his leadership post after it was discovered he had been hiring prostitutes.

Romero, who had been a pastor at Stefast Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas since 2014, was at first cagey as to why he was stepping down from his position.

“I haven’t been ruling my house well,” he said cryptically. “I’ve been a terrible husband and father.”

It wasn’t until the next day that another anti-LGBTQ pastor, Steven Anderson, posted a video to YouTube explaining Romero’s “sins” — prostitutes, gambling, and marijuana.

 

 

Romero made headlines in 2016 for praising the massacre at Pulse, and praying that the hospitalized victims would also die.

“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,” he said in his sermon at the time.

“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, 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, so that they don’t get any more opportunity to go out and hurt little children.”

Prior to that, Romero had been quoted as saying he wasn’t “going to let any of these dirty faggots inside [his] church. They’re all pedophiles.”
